So now, the no government guy Dumbwaiter is calling police to stop & frisk people on the street? Or did you just want to stop those carrying guns? How do they know the gun was "stolen" ? Many black market guns are not stolen but straw purchased. Are you pushing a national data base of gun ownership?
I get it, you want only to stop black people.
The Government Cheese and Non Sentient Welfare Crowd you fool where The Blind Lead you race peddler...

The sad and dangerous part is, there are thousands of "Cheese Thieves" like yourself RealDave pimping, selling out black America at the moment for Money, Power and Votes...

<quoted text>Amazing that all of the loons on this thread are pushing the Saddam connection in spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary__not to mention that it defies logic.
You want overwhelming evidence?

The fact of Syrian use of chemical weapons should call the conventional wisdom about Iraq into question. The two countries were linked by their ruling Baathist parties and, as neighbors, engaged in trade, both legal and illegal, before the war. In 2006, Georges Sada, a former general of Saddam’s air force, detailed in his book,“Saddam’s Secrets,” how Saddam had secretly moved much of his WMD material to Syria before the U.S.-led invasion under the cover of providing relief to Syrian earthquake victims. Sada’s claim was supported by other sources as well. In 2004, a Syrian defector, Nizar Nayouf claimed that Iraqi WMDs had been hidden at three sites in Syria. Nayouf’s story appeared in the Dutch paper Der Telegraaf and is summarized on . Satellite reconnaissance photos from 2010 published in Israel’s Haaretz show Syrian military facilities in the same areas that Nayouf fingered. The same sites were identified in the 2004 book “End Game” by General Thomas McInerney and Paul Vallely as well as another former Iraqi general, Ali Ibrahim al-Tikriti.

This evidence should at least be taken into serious consideration.

So try not to be so stubborn. Or gullible. Whichever.

Behold: The ‘Impeachment Store’ That Sells All Things Impeachment

What good is a conservative fever dream if no one can make a buck off it, right?

The people behind WND, perhaps the pre-eminent online purveyor of conservative fever dreams, on Sunday created an “Impeachment Store” section for their website’s online retail “superstore.”

Hi! I am not going to speak about religion today.
I am interested in "space aliens"! We are not alone
in the universes! I, also, believe there are an
infinite number of universes, but one God, holding
everything together. Put this web address into
"GOOGLE" search sirian messages with a space in
between those two words and then hit enter....

I would like to respond to these "Falsehoods" put forth by the previous uninspired author who has not the slightest idea of what socialized medicine means to the public in general.
1. The youth of and with the greatest potential will receive the appropriated amount of care, unless, of course, the money is there to buy additional care in addition to the paltry care that will be given, economically speaking, to the masses that will inundate the medical community, who will not want to take this social medicine because of the abundance of paperwork and the lack of care that can and will be instituted. Age will play a large factor, the old poor will be relegated to home care and have to have family members and some nurses or aides to the residence simply because the talented nurses and doctors will gravitate toward the more lucrative ventures.
2. Any so called"Petitions " will be money in hand. When I lived in communist Poland, of course one could go into the clinics and receive the standard, substandard care. This was, unless they carried things into the staff. There were the "Sausage and Vodka" doctors and the Chocolate and brandy" doctors. If the nurse was to give eye drops as ordered or some of the other medications the family would have to go to the market and first, buy the medication and then something nice for the nurses, in order for the medication to be given. Ungodly lazy employees. Why should they work when the pittance would be assured.
3. Any way you look at how the Bureaucrats write these"Laws" the need will be based on the ability to covertly influence the right folks working staff with the delights they mostly liked. All these laws that are written thousands upon thousands of pages at a time will mean nothing because, like now, go into any nursing home on the afternoon shift and see the lazy workers sitting in the break room half the shift or better watching TV and eating, while your loved one sits or lays in their feces and urine, with the dinner tray cold and unset for them to eat, providing they could eat in such deplorable shape, for lack of care. Do you really think that these lazy indolent would be health care workers care about your loved ones. My aunt in Poland died on the couch at home because she was always kicked off the dialysis machine because there was a young person who was there also. So she went home and died. Yes, your loved one will tell you all is good, out of fear of reprisal in the shifts when the so called management is there. Better stated mis-management.
The author who stated that all this hogwash that is promised by this o-blomo care is correct, it is all false and misleading and I applaud their candor, having practiced both in Poland and the USA I speak with authority.
Bribery is still necessary to obtain medical care in countries that were previously under Soviet control.

See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrites easy to fool by MSNBC.
If you can't recognize the difference between Bush's unilateral invasion and military action as part of a coalition of nations, there is no hope for you as you are the one who is truly brain dead.

However, we have certainly used our Security Council vito power to stop actions against Israel. There is o reason we should not show Russia the same courtesy. Moscow is right, we shouldn't act before evidence is in hand. I hope Obama doesn't listen to the war mongers.

<quoted text>More than six months after the start of the Syrian uprising, Iraq is offering key moral and financial support to the country’s embattled president, undermining a central U.S. policy objective and raising fresh concerns that Iraq is drifting further into the orbit of an American arch rival — Iran.
Iraq’s stance has dealt an embarrassing setback to the Obama administration, which has sought to enlist Muslim allies in its campaign to isolate Syrian autocrat Bashar al-Assad. While other Arab states have downgraded ties with Assad, Iraq has moved in the opposite direction, hosting official visits by Syrians, signing pacts to expand business ties and offering political support.
After Iraq sent conflicting signals about its support for Assad last month, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki spoke firmly against regime change in Syria in an interview broadcast on Iraqi television Sept. 30.“We believe that Syria will be able to overcome its crisis through reforms,” Maliki said, rejecting U.S. calls for the Syrian leader to step down.
P.S. The Moslem allies O'bama enlisted are Al Qaeda.
Iraq doesn't want Al Qaeda control of Syria.
