And what policies would that be? You can't get away with throwing grenades and then hiding on here. Unless that's what you do on all threads.

What's your problem with disease-resistant seeds that produce superior crops?

Are you also "gluten-free"?

Obama meddled in Egypt's internal affairs, and look at the results.
I guess when you ringers lie day in day out it all starts to look like the truth. Obama had nothing to do with Egypt except prop up whomever is in government as long as they remain loyal to the US. This goes back to way beyond Obama's administration and dates back to the 70's after they got pounded by Israel. So when the brotherhood was elected democratically, what did you expect the US to say ??? Go back and have another go ? I mean there are millions of Americans right now regretting that they had anything to do with the tea party and electing some of those clowns. It made the whole congress dysfunctional. Well breaking news!!! thats exactly what happened in Egypt. The government was not governing so the ppl got fed up. One thing I can promise you, NO tea party dick-head will ever be elected again in the US after the experience gained in the past few years.

So now you're going to spit on the graves of those who died to save the union and end the institution of slavery too?
You have no shame. Because you have no conscience.
It's time for you to start reading some books on forgiveness and letting go of the past - and check out a few books about moving on too.
You'll be a better person for it.
You would know, white woman.

With all due respect, Carol, don't let yourself get sucked in by a phony, a Ghost in drag.

To what extent do we EVER know the whole story?
We don't. But making a stab at fixing perceived wrongs is both a right and an obligation. How often do people in power use the "State Secrets" BS on the citizens who ask questions? Often. VERY often.
With this administration, arguably more than ever.
To many different extents we can at least keep peeling back the layers. All I said is that one of the ways of getting to the bigger picture is by not approaching all topics with a preconceived notion that we have the whole picture. Are you perceiving somehow that I was defending the use of domestic spying on citizens? Not sure where you are coming from in your response shinning.

You eradicated my people to build your Disneyworld. You are nothing and have contributed nothing. Soon, anyone in your bloodline will be brown or black. There are not enough George Zimmerman's to prevent this. So... you must accept the inevitable. You built it, you broke it, you own it. Enjoy.
You are a friggin' drama queen, kemosabe.

Welcome to the 21st century and the world of modern conveniences and cars and iPods and computers and even fun parks that we built for you.

As well as the freedom to enjoy them.

Wish we could deport you.

Obama ordered Mubarak to leave, paving the way for the genocidal Muslim Brotherhood.

The Tea Party was not involved in any way.

Tonto never been to "Fun Park." Tonto never WILL be at "Fun Park." "Fun Park" another phrase for, 600 acres of wetlands destroyed so white European American dummies can take fat children to ride on stupid things they not have to work to build. Any questions?

Saint Trayvon should have been home with his Mommy going to school...except he got kicked out of school for being a gangsta.
Stop feeling sorry for a punk whose poor decisions led to a downward spiral and whose parents didn't give a shit.
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.

You do realize civilization has modernized in countries all around the world?

Actually, maybe you don't.

You should move to the Middle East. They haven't caught up yet there either. Still holding a grudge and living in the past.

Well, Tonto projecting here, but he think that means you're going to shut up about the Obama Presidency until it's over. Right? You know, rule of law and all that stuff...

Looked it up because I've never had reason to spell it before now.

Well... realistically... if the choices are the Middle East and an American "Fun Park,"... are there any other options?

But I confess I can see the attraction of a Mouseketeers World in Dubai, I mean, where else? Yes, a shining city on a hill of sand is what I see too whenever I hear that phrase... Give it up, kids. Wherever there are people there is disease, death, and disorder. Haven't you all overlooked the obvious? We're the enemy. Don't you get it? Yeah... we're the Indians... literally. The rest of the planet is the cavalry. Get it? No?
