The liberal media couldn't make it look more unpopular if they had taken a course on how to do it - 24/7 they used every possible angle to remind us how unpopular they, themselves, had made that war just to make sure Democrats had every possible advantage to become weasels for political gain.
When was the last time you saw any coverage - much less 24/7 coverage - from the liberal media of the Afghanistan and Pakistan wars?
It's like those wars don't even exist.
So stop being so gullible and acting like one of the liberal media's stooges.
I've grown to like you after last night, so at least try to act like you're the same normal person and don't disappoint me.
"Liberal Media", how weak.

Pakistan War?? That's funny!! Tell us about this war. The Pakastanis hate AMerica, Bush propped up the Dictator Musharref for years. But a War?? Did you get that from FAUX insane media??

Channeling Sarah Palin's stupidity again, Carol??

The Governor who couldn't last her term?? A quitter??

And then faded into irrelevance??

...Nothing like thousands of semis to wake up a sleeping giant.
Just like the 1.3 million bikers that showed up for the Million Muslim March to celebrate their 9/11 attack on the United States(for which only 26 muslims showed up), this will be ignored by the media.

If you wanted to die, why wouldn't you just want to get it over with? You'd want to suffer instead?
Do you think anyone would choose starvation over a quicker death no matter what their mental state?
Fine put a pillow over my face. She wasn't suffering her brain was liquefied. Her soul was already with Jesus(if you believe that sort of thing)

<quoted text>QUOTE who="usasince1680" <quoted text>
I agree and am compelled to add that the problem with the poor today is
"handouts" - both public and private.
I grew up poor. My parents were too proud to accept any public assistance.
Sometimes we had nothing to eat but potatoes and oatmeal. We bought
day-old bread and picked left-over vegetables from the fields after
the harvest.
We made cardboard cutouts to fill the holes in our shoes. We brought out the
kettles when it rained through the roof and every year my Christmas gift was a
pair of warm pajamas that would have to last all year. No one gave us anything,
we did not ask for anything and we appreciated everything we had. And this
was the 50's - not during the recession.
I learned very early on that this was not the life for me and, because
my parents
were poor, it was (and is) extremely easy to get scholarships and
grants for college.
I did not marry until after college and waited until we were
financially secure before starting a family. Financial security was
and is very important to me.
Today's poor are provided with free food, new clothes, new shoes and
toys at Christmas. What incentive do they have to escape their
I guess my husband and I are considered "wealthy" and we happily share that
wealth but we never give to an organization that provides handouts to the poor
(other than homeless shelters). To do so, in my opinion, is to
encourage laziness
and dependency. People have got to stop feeling sorry for the poor!

*AND YET USAsincepoorsville starved but she had insurance. ROTFLMAO.
nutsickles is just looking for a pissing match. You can ignore it.

...because the idiots spent it on this...

Article from 1996...Bill Clinton at the helm...
"Without authorization, for instance, the feds spent $19.6 million annually on the International Fund for Ireland. Sounds like a noble cause, but the money went for projects like pony-trekking centers and golf videos"

Are you referring to Joseph Callahan?

FAIRFIELD -- From the minute police entered Joseph C. Callahan's Greenfield Hill home, he freely discussed the array of bomb-making chemicals he collected in his house.

When they asked about some large containers in his garage, which contained about 100 pounds of a substance Callahan readily identified as ammonium nitrate, he couldn't have been more helpful.

"That's the chemical used in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing," police said he explained to them.

Then he pointed to vats that he said contained the same kind of chemicals used in the Oklahoma City bombing.

Gunner fits the profile, but to my knowledge he hasn't been around since Obama beat Rmoney.

President Bush will leave office as one of the most unpopular departing presidents in history, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll showing Mr. Bush's final approval rating at 22 percent.
Seventy-three percent say they disapprove of the way Mr. Bush has handled his job as president over the last eight years.
Mr. Bush's final approval rating is the lowest final rating for an outgoing president since Gallup began asking about presidential approval more than 70 years ago.
And today Bush has a higher approval rating than Obama.

I rest my case.

The gap blaming primarily Republicans is quickly narrowing.
Hell, Batty, I rather tend to doubt the veracity of a poll that shows twenty-seven percent blaming Obama for the 1995 shutdown... a reverse clairvoyance conspiracy?

debunked, but you keep passing around the lies.
Sorry, Lily, your "debunked" knee jerk reaction was proven "bunked" when I posted the government website and the number was there. Using one of the letters corresponding to each number, it would spell out the message you hoped was debunked.

Of course, you can choose one of the other two letters to match each number, but the odds of just one of the three letters matching each number to spell out that particular phrase still has to be astronomical.

It really was disgusting. The Republicans shut down government then have the nerve to berate a park ranger doing her job. Disgusting does not begin to describe his behavior or that of Michelle Bachmann's photo ops. Neither of them understands how public law and chain of command works.
It's clear these idiots believe they're on a higher plane than regular Americans.

They need to get kicked out of their ivory towers and look at the real world for a change.
