When I was five years old, I used to go around the neighborhood trick-or-treating with my friends on Halloween, and we'd have in one hand a bag for candy and in the other hand a little box with a slit on top for nickels and dimes and pennies for UNICEF, because at five years old, the United Nations is a terrific thing: "Don't hit, talk."
Another lesson from Robert Fulghum is "Share everything." Well, here, we'll share power; we'll share our wealth; we'll pay for the United Nations. Let's talk things out. What a lovely, wonderful thing.
Then you turn 10, 15, 20, and you learn some things about the United Nations that change your opinion.
You learn about the corruption.
You learn about the anti-Semitism, that they ran away from the genocide in Rwanda, have done nothing about the Sudanese genocide--in fact, made the Sudanese members of the Human Rights Commission while they were committing this genocide!
You and I change our position because these are things we really need to know,
Yet the Modern Liberal will maintain their five-year-old's position, their belief that the United Nations is this great, wonderful thing, and completely ignore everything they've learned since.
There was a song that came out at about this time called "Goodbye Stranger" by a group called Supertramp--because, you know, being a "tramp" is super! In it, this guy and this girl shack up together for a couple weeks, and apparently things are pretty wonderful until she says something like, "Honey, we've run out of food. Why don't you go to the supermarket, pick up some things, and then we can do this for another week or two?" He says, "I should go shopping? No, no, that's not my paradise. I'm leaving." And as he's walking out the door, he says to her, "Now, I believe that what you say is the undisputed truth, but I have to see things my own way just to keep me in my youth."
That is so much the mindset of the Modern Liberals.
It's not that they are not aware of all the things that we're aware of; it's that they need to reject them in order to remain in this five-year-old's utopia that they've been told is the only hope for mankind: a mindless indiscriminateness."

How Modern Liberalism is Causing the Decline of Western Civilization
So because of modern liberalism having taken over our educational institutions, what you're left with is not really adults, but citizens of voting age who cannot judge their own positions but are virulently antagonistic to any position other than their own.
Why? Because when you've been brought up to believe that indiscriminateness is a moral imperative, any position other than their own must have been arrived at through the employment of discrimination.
This is why Bush is Hitler; this is why Reagan is Hitler; this is why Giuliani is Hitler.
How is Rudolph Giuliani like Hitler to a thinking person? In one way: Hitler discriminated against the Jews; Giuliani discriminated against the crack-addicted prostitutes mugging people in Times Square.
Hitler discriminated against the Catholics; Giuliani discriminated against the criminal overlords.
Hitler discriminated against the gypsies; Giuliani discriminated against the terrorists on 9/11 & beyond.
In other words, any form of discrimination is wrong.
The Modern Liberals know that theirs is a position arrived at through the moral imperative of indiscriminateness; therefore, any position other than their own must have been arrived at through the employment of discrimination.
So this makes you not just wrong on your issues & your stances.
They don't even think about your issues & your stances. They don't have to. Even if they were willing to, even if they were able to, they don't need to.
Would you sit and contemplate Hitler's Social Security policy? No, you would fight Hitler.
So what you're left with is, after 10, 12, 14, 20 years in these indoctrination centers--and it's not a coincidence that the longer you stay in the indoctrination process, the more morally inverted you become, so that to become head of the Ethnic Studies Department, you have to argue that the Islamic fascist terrorists are the good guys & the victims of 9/11 were all little Eichmanns--is people who quite literally cannot differentiate between good & evil, right & wrong, better & worse.
But indiscriminateness of thought does not lead to indiscriminateness of policy.
Indiscriminateness of thought invariably leads the Modern Liberal to side with evil over good, wrong over right, and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success.
Why? Because in a world where you are indiscriminate, where no behavior is to be deemed better or worse than any other, your expectation is that all behavior should lead to equally good outcomes.
When, in the real world, different behaviors lead to different outcomes, you and I know why-- because we think.
We know why communities that promote teenage promiscuity tend to fail at a greater rate than communities that promote teenage abstinence:
Teenage promiscuity & teenage abstinence are not the same behaviors. Teenage abstinence is a better behavior.
Forget the moral component for a moment; let's just talk practicalities.
If your boy's out messing around, he's not home reading a book.
If your daughter's down at the abortion mill again, she's not at the library studying for the SATs.
If your son's in a hospital bed somewhere dying of AIDS, he's not putting together his 5-year plan.
You and I recognize why communities that promote teenage abstinence do better than those that promote teenage promiscuity in their music, in their movies, in the schools.
But to the Modern Liberal who cannot make that judgment--must not make that judgment--that would be discriminating. They have no explanation.
Therefore, the only explanation for success has to be that somehow success has cheated.
Success, simply by its existence, is proof positive to the Modern Liberal of some kind of chicanery & likely bigotry.
Failure, simply by its existence--no other evidence needed, just the fact that it has failed--is enough proof to them that failure has been victimized.

You reich wingnuts really have a problem facing reality. Your claim was that Obama was the one supplying surplus military equipment to police agencies. The FACT that this has been going on since 1972 is NOT "irrelevant". Truth just keeps biting you in the backside and you can't handle it. Pathetic.
As far as our police agencies definitely deserve all the help they can get. Supplying them with humvees is certainly appropriate given all mudslides, snowstorms, and floods we have seen of late. Sure beats those old 4x4's that kept getting stuck in the mud.
However, if we stopped mass producing military vehicles to replace perfectly good ones, there wouldn't be any surplus to sale. Hmmmm.

So the mindless foot soldier like the college students that are planted at Obama rallies or those who soil the local park as Occupy Wallstreeters, which is what I call the non-elite, will:
Support the elite's blueprint for utopia,
Will side with evil over good, wrong over right, and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success, out of a sense of justice.
As I said at the beginning, they're not evil. It's just a mindless acceptance without any true Socratic desire to talk about the REAL CONSEQUENCES.
It's meaningless to them, and it's why John Lennon said utopia was all the people living for today.
By the way, it's not a coincidence that those who live for today now have so much debt.
What is debt? It's the failure to repay a promise from yesterday.
And they vote themselves nothing but more and more entitlements, which is what? Stuff for me. I'll worry about who pays for it later.
The same is true of good and evil.
Since nothing can deemed good, nothing can be deemed evil.
That which society does recognize as good must be the beneficiary of some sort of prejudice.
That which society recognizes as evil must be the victim of that prejudice.
So, again, the mindless foot soldier will invariably side with whatever policy, mindlessly accept whatever policy seeks to tear down what is good--America, Israel, Wal-Mart--and elevate what is evil until everything meets in the middle and there is nothing left to fight about.
Take an issue in the news and think like a Modern Liberal, and you will see how, once you've been indoctrinated into this mindset, there is no other choice.
Remember, I said it was inevitable.
Once you belong to this cult of indiscriminateness, there is no other conclusion you can come to than that good is evil and that evil is the victim of good.
We all know it's official policy at the Leftist media outlets to never call Islamic Jihad, al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, Harakat ul-Mujahidin, or any of the other Islamic fascist terrorist groups around the world "terrorists," and you know why.
In fact, it's even in official memos to reporters ordering them not to use the appropriate word.
That reason is that "one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. Who are we to employ critical, rational judgment?"
But, as a very minimum standard, can't we at least agree that in order to be called a "freedom fighter," you have to be fighting for freedom?
We knew what Osama bin Laden was fighting for; he's told us. It's not freedom; it's an oppressive theocracy in which women are covered from head to toe and beaten if their ankles become exposed, and unless we all change to his religion, we are considered the offspring of pigs and monkeys to be decapitated.
People like Cindy Sheehan and Michael Moore will call Osama bin Laden a freedom fighter because being indiscriminate quite literally leaves them unable to tell the difference between freedom and having your head hacked off.
That's how sick this mentality is.
So, if The New York Times and CNN and Newsweek and the rest of the leftist media outlets are right and there is no objective difference between the terrorist and the freedom fighter, why is it that you and I teach our children that George Washington is a hero and Yasser Arafat and Saddam Hussein are villains? You and I know why because we think.

No dumbazz__the poster said, "the point was that the war was officially over in 1973 under Nixon." Obviously the poster was wrong.
The US sustained 168 casualties in 1974 and 176 in 1975*(a number of deaths from previous years were officially recorded in 1975)
It's worth noting that the US continues to pay for that war in veterans disability payments and medical services/benefits. Perhaps your familiar with the Hampton Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Why Liberals are Intolerant
George Washington risked his personal fortune to personally lead his troops into battle: battles fought nobly against other uniformed warriors for the purpose of creating the freest nation in the history of the world. Pretty noble, pretty heroic stuff.
Yasser Arafat, on the other hand, stole his people's money, sent 14-year-olds out to fight his battles: battles fought against kids and women and civilians in pizza parlors and Passover ceremonies, all for the purpose of maintaining his corrupt dictatorship. Pretty villainous stuff.
But to the folks at The New York Times, there is no objective difference between the terrorist and the freedom fighter.
So why do we teach our children that George Washington is a hero? The only possible explanation is that he is a white Christian of European descent.
If there is no difference between the behaviors of the freedom fighters and the terrorists, then why do we teach that Yasser Arafat and Saddam Hussein are villains?
There can be no other reason than they are darker-skinned Muslims of Middle Eastern birth.
So when push comes to shove and after 18 United Nations resolutions and 10 years of having our airplanes shot at in direct violation of our very clear agreements, after Saddam Hussein had invaded Iran and invaded Kuwait, bombed Saudi Arabia and bombed Israel, committed atrocities against the Kurds in the North and was committing genocide against the Marsh Arabs in the South, we finally, reluctantly go to war to liberate those poor people.
You and I know why because we think: because we make critical, rational, moral judgments.
But to the Modern Liberal, to the mindless, to those who cannot discriminate between these behaviors, the only possible explanation for us going to war is some nefarious cause: because we're evil and Saddam Hussein, therefore, is a victim.
So they will rush there, as we've seen, and act as human shields to protect his rape rooms and his torture chambers because they won't judge rape rooms and torture chambers, for that requires critical and moral judgment.
And if you listened to the chants of the mindless minions as they marched down the streets in their anti-America rallies, which the forged document users and the Leftist press euphemistically called "anti-war rallies," you could hear their chant:
"One, two, three, four, we don't want your racist war."
What race, exactly, comprises Iraq? What are they talking about? They don't know. It's not a factual statement; it's not an accurate statement.
Didn't we just recently go to war to protect Muslims in Kuwait? Didn't we bomb the Christians of Europe to protect the Muslims of Europe?
What is this based on? It's based on the reality that once you subscribe to indiscriminateness, anything other than indiscriminateness is the evil of having discriminated.

Wrong once again. You are batting a big fat ZERO.
All the Volstead Act did was "set down methods of enforcing the Eighteenth Amendment, by defining which "intoxicating liquors" were prohibited, and which were excluded from prohibition.
The Eighteenth Amendment SPECIFICALLY established the prohibition of alcoholic beverages by declaring the production, transport and sale of alcohol illegal."
Your arguments keep getting buried by FACTS. Time for you to stop fighting windmills.

After it landed, scientists discovered that they had captured a diatom fragment and some unusual biological entities from the stratosphere, all of which are too large to have come from Earth.
