A glimmer of light in a sea of darkness.

well said. i always wonder about the actual intellect of trolls. on your part, case closed.

but as how to achieve the goal you state, and to voice it in terms that all will accept, it can only be left to better men than i, though i will give it what small thought that i can.

There's nothing wrong with a guy being a "horn dog" as long as he's open and honest about it with his partners. Being sneaky about it is what sucks.

Before I go, I have to comment on the 50 year anniversary of Martin Luther King's 'I have a Dream' speech.

I hope all you white racists, esp, Aunt Batty, enjoy the day, the start of a major turning point in American History.

One that so many of wish had never happened. And that's why you will continue to lose on these struggles, from women's rights to Civil Rights for blacks to LBGT rights, the current struggle.

Because you're on the wrong side of history, pushing back against a rising tide that will engulf and drown you all.

Happy 'I HAVE A DREAM' day, Teabagger losers.

Barack is beginning his speech. All you losers should watch.

Actually, the rise in rates have dropped significantly since Obamacare came on the scene. And the best is yet to come!
Health Insurance Costs were rising at double digit annual rates during the Bush years. And he did nothing. DUH
But you've always been an idiot, Frank. We wouldn't expect you to change now.

One thing for sure-he was not afraid. He didn't kill anyone. And he found common ground with all kinds of people. He listened as much as he spoke. Too bad others don't follow that way of life.

Honest discussion is good. But you never practice honest discussion. You practice racial hatred and divisiveness. Your track record is quite clear, even through the smoke haze.

Your racist attacks using liberal inspired hateful talking points is destructive.

You are a filthy unAmerican POS, with hatred in your heart.

He had no problem bombing innocent Middle Eastern citizens with predator drones but he draws the line at Middle Easterners using "chemical" weapons against other Middle Easterners. Yep, that's not hypocritical at all.
The right whiners now arguing that it is OK for Assad to use chemical weapons, especially in heavily populated areas.

You argue that we should not pursue terrorists. I have news, military action has unforeseen casualties.

The difference is that in using drones, the US tries not to harm innocents. Assad, not much.

I like the Israeli idea, the innocent victims of a strike against terrorist as the fault of the terrorist. They need to understand that they put everyone in danger when they seek shelter.

They weren't invited just like black republicans weren't invited to speak at the MLK memorial rally.

Democrats think they own the black race to keep us divided.

You probably didn't know that.

Difference is, Clinton wasn't stupid enough to invade Iraq and create an international disaster over what he 'thought'.
As we all know, there were no WMD's in Iraq, as even Bush admitted to.
Bush was the idiot who pushed the USA to an unjust war, one we are still recovering from.
And he left Iraq a failed State, with a Civil war brewing.
Bush opened Pandora's Box when he stupidly invaded Iraq, opening the door for all the rebellions and wars we've seen in the Middle East ever since Bush's stupid move.
Obama must deal with the problems unleashed by Bush's mishandling of the Middle East. Syria, for one. Libya, for another. Yemen, for more. Egypt for even more.
Bush never left Iraq-O'bama did.

Why does Barack Hussein O'bama always have to talk like he is from the sout side of Chicago ghetto? I find it disturbing that he thinks blacks are so stupid that he needs to talk ebonics to them.
