As valuable resource for those with any amount of common sense too.
In pondering some like Galt sometimes--Galt probably thinks pencils and paper are obsolete as well.
Poor lil duhmmy-- gets confused sometimes lol.
Don't mean to extend this argument, but the trend of technology is against you. Much information today is never available in print form, and very few books are published in a durable hardcover edition that will last over time. Libraries will continue to exist as a repository of the past, but cannot possibly keep up with the pace of information.

Really? Seems they're good friends with Russia.

They seem to be the more viable option if you're talking WMD's.

Shh...you'll disturb the bobbleheaded emptiness of the masses of many still unable to grasp the reality of truths in facts-- of mulitudes of tunnels for transport-let alone the actual existence of chemical and biological weapons.

Iran holding elections, sounds like Ahmajinasmileinthefacesof might have to step aside. Intersting new development to add to the mix.

Clinton’s Folly

It’s not the least bit surprising, but Bill Clinton wants the U.S. to meddle in Syria.

....Clinton also said that Obama should ignore public opinion on Syria.

....It goes without saying that no one should make policy solely or primarily based on what polls happen to say, but it would be even more foolish to put the U.S. on a path towards gradual escalation in Syria when it is obvious that the public has no appetite for a new conflict or more foreign commitments. Indeed, only a fool would embark on a policy that he knows has little or no political support. One of the worst things that a president could do is commit the U.S. to a foreign conflict with unpopular, ineffective half-measures, such as arming a fragmented insurgency, and then be forced to increase the U.S. role in the conflict for fear of appearing to “lose.” That is what Clinton wants Obama to do, and unless Obama is a fool he should ignore this advice.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) told a conservative conference on Friday that comprehensive immigration reform could be turn around a trend of lower birth rates in the U.S. because “immigrants are more fertile.”

“Demography is destiny,” Bush explained to the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority conference.“We’re going to have fewer workers taking care of a larger number of people that the country has a social contract with to be able to allow them to retire with dignity and purpose. We cannot do that with the fertility rates that we have in our country. We’re below break-even today.”

“The one way that we can rebuild the demographic pyramid is to fix a broken immigration system to allow for people to come, to learn English, to play by our rules, to embrace our values and to pursue their dreams in our country with a vengeance, to create more opportunities for all of us,” he continued.“This is a conservative idea.”

You are a totally radicalized Progressive who wants to violate the constitutional rights of US citizens and allow the POTUS be judge and jury?
But it's o.k for police to play judge & jury right? Doesn't matter to you because, it's not your people in your community being shot by cops everyday. Explain your love for the constitution over true justice to the families of the victims of those terrorist "terror attacks." This ain't no normal crime & should be handled in a normal manor. I bet the victims of the Boston bombings wish the president assassinated that American citizen & his foreign realized territory brother. Like I said,"they chose sides with terrorist, that makes then terrorist!" You're radicalized in your beliefs & fear you might be targeted. Even when that asshole Bush was in office, no democrat took things as far as you republicans. You also have committed treason & declared war on &, conspired on the downfall of Americas president. The mine in the sand was drawn & you crossed it. Don't be scared now!

I find his delivery to be dull; that's my opinion. I don't think his show will last. I like Chris Matthews and I used to enjoy Keith Olberman.

What would you like to see as a solution? Israel is not the only country that it will affect. I wonder what the other Arab nations are doing about this?
Do you think the U.S. should started bombing them to smithereens?
