The dude nobody is interested in talking to because he's really old and tells jokes and has a sense of humor from the hillbilly country from the 1920's.
Sorry dummy, I'm not finding you much of a challenge. Better yuck it up with yourself, dumbfk.
You can try to keep pestering, knock yourself out weakling.

More than half of Democratic Senators voted for the use of military force in Iraq. Without them, the Iraq War would have never been sanctioned.
As someone else put it:
The War in Iraq was only approved because of a majority Democrat vote in the Senate. The Democrats then turned around and called it "Bush's war". It's intellectual dishonesty.
Actually, it was bushie boy's choice.

You people obviously don't know the US Constitution.

But then, that's nothing new.

Some of us just take it for granted, kemosabe.
That's when we have to start worrying about those who do stealing it from the rest of us.
Really? Funny. You need to go tell that to the Germans, Russians, Italians and Japanese Americans who were put in concentration camps son.

Not only did the lose their liberties, they lost their properties as well.

No one worried about the Constitution then.

You are what shames America and all that she stands for.
Once you forget who you are and what you stand for, you become fodder for anyone who seeks out the easily duped.
No need to wave your sign. They already have you in their crosshairs.
Funny.

In France, there's a town that still celebrates their liberty from the Germans, courtesy of the Americans.... previously interned Japanese Americans.

I suggest you take a seat son.

You're history is too short to be of value.
Yeah

If you do, you're either delusional or ill-informed.
So where were you when American were interned?

If Zimmerman is telling the truth, Trayvon was determined to kill him that night and even told him so.
But if Zimmerman had stayed in his house or his car, Trayvon would not have been able to attack him and he'd still be alive.
Whether Zimmerman is telling the truth has yet to be determined by the evidence and a jury who is hearing all the evidence.
However, a lot of teenagers lose their way and make mistakes but overcome them and eventually become responsible adults.
You can't judge a young person so easily or justify their death based on their actions at any given time. Zimmerman may have been perceived as the threat and stalking him.
If unwise decisions made out of anger or stupid actions are a reason for a young person to die, there'd be a lot of grownups who would have deserved to die too as a young person.
If Trayvon was, in fact, trying to kill Zimmerman that night, Zimmerman had no choice but to act in self defense.
I'm going to wait and let the jury decide.
Trayvon was on a collision course with trouble, regardless of Zimmerman.
Yeah

What's your problem with disease-resistant seeds that produce superior crops?
Are you also "gluten-free"?
Have peanut allergies?
GMO crops were developed to be pesticide resistant not disease resistant. Monsanto, developed GMO seeds also just happens to own and developed Round Up weed killer. They made seeds that grow plants that can withstand massive amounts of toxic weed killer sprayed on them and not die. Then they will tell you that these poisons dissipate before you eat the food produced by these seeds. This is from the same Monsanto that gave us DDT years ago and said it was harmless and Agent Orange and said the same. And that is only one of the concerns. A virus or bacteria is needed to get the dna that is being introduced into the original dna. The one most commonly used is the E-coli virus. Monsanto is buying up as many heritage seeds as they can get their hands on all the while suing non GMO farmers into bankruptcy by claiming they are using their "patented" seeds even when the farmers crops have been cross contaminated by nearby fields. Even if the non GMO farmer wins in ocurt he is usually bankrupted by the muti billion dollar corperation Monsanto that can keep them in court for years. Look up Percy Schmeiser a canola farmer from Canada who refused their gag order after he won in ocurt. There is more and more evidence that GMO foods cause leaky gut syndrome which allows undigested food into your system which causes your body to respond to it as a foreign substance and creates allergies. Considering that 80-90% of all soy, corn and now wheat are from GMO seeds it doesn't surprise me there could actually be a connection between Gluten intolerance and celiac's Disease. I will pause to give you time to digest, excuse the pun, this. I can go on for much longer on this subject.

Sorry, incomplete thought above. The virus or bacteria is needed to get the dna to adhere to the original dna.

Monsanto GMO seed cannot be saved for future crops thereby insuring that you have to repurchase their seed over and over again. Any farmer attempting to save and reuse their seed is brought to court. They have now created what is known as the suicide seed that cannot reproduce. This is disasterous for the whole culture of farming. The massive amounts of pesticides that these plants can withstand have resulted in tons more pesticides being used , all to the benefit of Monsanto's pocketbook and the detriment of our water tables. Monsanto is one of the biggest lobbyist in Washington DC and exudes extreme influence over our government. Google "ex Monsanto employees in government" and see the list of names that appears. This will include Michael Taylor, an Obama appointee to our Ag Dept. Can you say conflict of interest? It also include Clarence Thomas, Donald Rumsfeld and even Dick Cheney has ties to Monsanto.

GMO farmers are subsidized by the government unlike most non gmo farmers. GMO corn is force fed to cattle, chicken, pork. Someone once commented on here that you don't have to force feed cattle corn, they love it. Yes well children love sugar too, but it isn't a great diet for them. Cattle that have been raised on GMO corn which their two stomachs are not designed to digest usually wind up sick and hence need lots of antibiotics. There are so many aspects to this subject I'm not sure where to go next if you are even interested. But state after state are trying to pass the GMO labeling laws. Monsanto is spending millions to defeat it. After 5 yrs of blogging on Topix and other venues when people didn't even know what GMO's were it is very gratifying to me to see the progress and awakening happening. We are still way behind Europe on this issue as labeling GMO foods is already the standard in most of Europe.
