Oh, for cryin' out loud, Lily. MSNBC had to recently apologize for editing and using a clip of Joe Biden out of context to promote their bias on gun control.
NBC had to recently apologize for editing Zimmerman's 911 call to promote a racial bias that didn't exist.
Dan Rather was fired from CBS for reporting a lie about Bush without fact checking first.
And you think I'm delusional? Think again.
Lets not forget this

"A man at a pro-health care reform rally...wore a semiautomatic assault rifle on his shoulder and a pistol on his hip....there are questions about whether this has racial overtones....white people showing up with guns."

The picture was edited to remove the black guys head and hands.

In case you were sleeping in class this morning:
we finished our history lesson yesterday when the Soviet Union petitioned the UN to create two countries in Vietnam, and the UN accepted. Let's review before we continue:
The Japanese army was in Vietnam after the war ended. The British monitored the removal of the Japanese army in the southern region of Vietnam, while the Chinese army in the northern region. After the Japanese army had been removed, the British army left Vietnam and the Chinese army refused to leave.
Ho Chi Minh goes to Paris and asks the French to return to Vietnam to remove the Chinese Army. The French return to Vietnam and bring elections with them.
(Ho Chi Minh's communist do not win the provincial elections, and Ho Chi Minh cannot be dictator of Vietnam.)
Ho Chi Minh declares the northern region of Vietnam a separate country.(I declared the property I live on a separate country, too, the People's Democratic Republic of Bikeria, where I am the dictator, and we don't have elections or a constitution.)
Vietnam becomes part of the Cold War when Ho Chi Minh asks the Soveit Union to help him in his war against the democratic provinces of Vietnam that didn't elect communists, and the French he asked to return to Vietnam.
The communists defeat the French at Dien Bien Phu with Soviet weapons.
Today, we will learn how the US became involved in Vietnam.
1955
The Soviet Union petitions the UN to divide Vietnam into two separate countries. The UN agrees. Vietnam becomes two separate countries at the request of Ho Chi Minh, a heavily militarized North, and a non-militarized South.
Ho Chi Minh invades Laos and Cambodia and uses the communist-occupied territories there to stage invasions of South Vietnam.
Ho Chi Minh extends his "influence" in South Vietnam by using the tactic of slipping into villages at night and murdering all elected officials.
South Vietnam asks the United States for help.
The United States becomes involved in Vietnam.
So, what is inaccurate here? Please correct the inaccuracies with what you claim is the history of Vietnam.
As usual you are rambling mindlessly and incoherently. No one asked for the history of Vietnam fool...We are all aware that any dummy can google....Even as handicapped as you are..I was disputing your claim that we left there in 72, I notice you didn't mention any of that part...Huh liar. Also the first treaty was signed in 73 moron. You need help bad psycho.

Hoodieman called his girlfriend and told her he was going to kick some creepy ass cracker's ass, idiot.
Then, there's the location of Zimmerman versus the location of Hoodieman, the busted nose, the grass on the back of the shirt, and the evidence of Zimmerman's head being bashed against the concrete sidewalk.
On the other side, there's a hole blown through Hoodieman's chest cavity... and nothing else.
So why did Bush let all the Bin Laden family flee the country right after 9/11?

We forgot:
Republicans own a woman's V A G I N A
Republicans own a Dr.'s office visit.
Republicans decide who can marry.
Republicans cut food stamps for hungry children.
Republicans send fed workers home today without pay.
Republicans borrow trillions for wars.
Republicans decide what a lady can do with her V A G I N A
Republicans own a woman's right to do anything.

Republicans. Liars.
Republicans. GREEDY.
Republicans. SELFISH.
Republicans. CRAZY.

and this:
I saw a black kid wearing a hoodie holding a soda in his hand walk past my house on the 5th of July at 11 o'clock at night. I was out front watching fireworks from around the corner shoot up into the sky.
I said: Whats Up!
He Said: Whats UP! Fireworks still going off around the corner!
I said: I know. They are so loud.
He said: It was so hot today. I really didn't need to bring my sweat shirt with me.
I said: It might rain, the weather is crazy lately.
He said: I know. See you later.
I said: Well have fun! Be safe. You are our future!
(no guns were present, no shots were fired, no one stalked the kid, no one followed him, no one was murdered, no one was killed, no young man's life was ended, no cowards were spotted, no republicans in sight that night, lucky for that kid! just folks being folks.)
I know!

Old white dudes in the Republican Party telling every single woman what she can do with her V A G I N A.

"We need to close these women's clinics down, they are not safe, no admitting privileges at local hospitals."

Really?

Dental offices have no admitting privileges!

They drill into bone and remove jaws in the office!

Can be very dangerous surgeries.

Republicans are OK with that?

But a woman getting a pap smear is in danger?

Hey ladies, look around: Republicans want to own your V A G I N A.

Wake up Americans. While the concept of "separation of church and state" may be implied by the 1st Amendment which states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...." it says NOTHING at all about the actual "separation of church and state." Go ahead and research it! That phrase doesn't exist, but many believe it does because they've been taught by our liberal educational establishment that it does. Trust me ... it DOES NOT! Besides, even if you accept the principle of the separation of church and state being implied by the First Amendment, it's implication is not there to protect Americans from religion. It is there to protect religious Americans FROM THE GOVERNMENT!
We've forgotten our godly heritage, and it will cost us dearly if we don't return to our roots and to God!

Yes. First warning: Al Qaeda bombs the WTC in 1993.
Can you list the other warnings we received before 9/11? Two embassies and the USS Cole, maybe?
Actually, we had the 9/11 detailed plans in our possession before 9/11. Some liberal judge wouldn't let the FBI look at Moussaoui's computer to read them.
For some reason, there were no constitutional objections on 9/12.
AS PRE-Bush jr years Duhmmy?

Huh..who'd've ever thought goober could finally make some setnences of sense.

Perception handicap? You're a trip.
No convictions about who the enemy is?
You were whining about the drone program, who do you think is targeted?
You just make up stuff in your head that's all nonsense.
This president called Fort Hood "workplace violence". He changed the War on Terror to "Overseas Contingency Operations". He chokes on the words "radical Islamists". He denied a terrorist attack on 9/11 just to increase his chance of getting reelected. He wants to try our enemies in a court of law - with lawyers and Miranda Rights. He wants to sit down and "talk" with the Taliban. What in the hell are they going to "talk" about?

Get your head out of the sand, Lily. You're going to suffocate yourself in your denial.

"Given the high level of hostility to the United States in Pakistan, the results of the parliamentary debate are pretty much a foregone conclusion. The parliament will almost certainly vote against the allowing the continuation of the drone strikes and will also demand an American apology for the deaths of its soldiers."
It is political savvy for the Pakistan military and government to criticize U S involvement in the drone strike program because of the unpopularity of it in the civilian population. However, the decision-making on drone strikes are shared by both the Pakistani high command and the U S military authorities. President Barack Obama has already said in his National Security speech(nearly forgotten after the Edward Snowden news) that he had serious questions about the drone strike program and has requested more Congressional oversight and direction on its further deployment.
