No wonder you baggers reside in a constant state of confusion. I never once mentioned anyone on topix as my friends.Idiot. In real life [which you obviously are void of ] one has to decide who their real friends are...Kinda like it should be more than obvious that the Dems are far more in tune with real Americans, the working class, women, homosexuals, immigrants, equal pay, minimum wage, retirement, health insurance...Yea dig Loser. You exude and personify, hatred, and the bagger ilk, you and Galt, YUCK.

Funny how you make the claim "no one gave me or the old man anything" after telling us how you and your old man both relied on the military and as a foothold out of poverty. The military is not for everyone. No wonder you people are such warmongers. It was your meal ticket.
The military may not be for everyone,but it is an honor to serve. The military is also a job and can be a new start on life. It is a lot more honorable to receive a pay check from the military than to receive a welfare check.

Rather selective with your facts aren't you. Before 1948 it was Palestine. Even the British and Ottoman Empires called it Palestine.

Weren't you the one that was discussing the Balfour Declaration to partition PALESTINE earlier? Put your blinders back on.

We can only take the earliest historians word for it. And informative websites.

But here's a quote from Charles Krauthammer - The Weekly Standard, May 11, 1998
"Israel is the very embodiment of Jewish continuity: It is the only nation on earth that inhabits the same land, bears the same name, speaks the same language, and worships the same God that it did 3,000 years ago. You dig the soil and you find pottery from Davidic times, coins from Bar Kokhba, and 2,000-year-old scrolls written in script..."
(They don't give out the American Pulitzer Prize for syndicated columnists to just anybody...)
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Ibrahim Zain was driven from his home by Israeli tank fire this week, but says he’d rather endure more Israel-Hamas fighting than accept an unconditional cease-fire he fears will leave in place the blockade of the Gaza Strip.

Like Zain, many Gaza residents say the closure, imposed by Israel and Egypt after Hamas seized Gaza in 2007, is like a slow death: It prevents them from traveling, from importing cement to build homes and increasingly from earning enough to feed their families.

“We want a good life or no life,” said the unemployed 44-year-old father of nine whose small scrap metal business fell victim to the blockade last year.

Disagreement over whether and how to lift the Gaza closure is a key stumbling block to ending more than two weeks of fighting between the Islamic militant Hamas and Israel.

And in a way, it is emerging as the Gazan equivalent of what is single-mindedly driving the Israelis — the rocket fire from Gaza, which they feel must stop at almost any cost. For the Gazans, it is the blockade that must stop, and the fact that Hamas is demanding this appears to have gained its tactics genuine support.

Egypt wants an immediate end to hostilities, followed by undefined talks about easing access to Gaza. Israel accepted, but Hamas wants international guarantees that Gaza’s borders will open before it stops fighting. Hamas distrusts Israel and Egypt, whose rulers tightened the Gaza blockade even more over the past year, pushing Hamas into a severe financial crisis.

BERLIN (AP)— The European Aviation Safety Agency says it "strongly recommends" that airlines refrain from operating flights to and from Tel Aviv.

The recommendation by Europe's main aviation safety body came after the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration told U.S. airlines they are prohibited from flying to Israel's Ben Gurion airport for 24 hours following a Hamas rocket explosion nearby.

EASA's statement Tuesday didn't name a similar timeframe, but it said the agency would "monitor the situation and advise on any update as the situation develops."

European airlines including Lufthansa, Air France and Alitalia say they have already suspended all flights to Tel Aviv over safety concerns.

<quoted text> The bill was written exactly the way it was to try and force republican led states to build an exchange. The dems thought (wrongly) that by only allowing subsidies to be paid through state exchanges it would make more difficult for republican states not to opt out. Remember this, there was zero republican votes for Obamacare. Their little scheme backfired so now they cry it's a typo!!!!!
Obamacare agrees to cover 16 million more low-income people under Medicaid and the feds will pick up the full cost from 2014 through 2016 and pay 90 percent through 2020.

But will the feds keep their promise? There is nothing specific in the law to prevent a future Congress from reneging on this promise. The normal federal Medicaid match to states is 60% This could devastate many states. Just paying 10% of this vastly expanded coverage will negatively impact many states. After 2020 what happens? Back to 60%? States currently facing or near bankruptcy will never make it. Governors who did not enter the exchange will not face this dilemma .

LOSER..By the way I saw the other day where you confirmed that you and your wife get free food a couple times a month...Maybe we could all take up a collection for you both. One would think just being married to a retarded idiot like you would be punishment enough. Oh well I guess the Lord works in mysterious ways.

You’re an Idiot… Palestinians have no interest in Peace!! Clinton offered Arafat the best peace deal he was ever going to get and Arafat turn it down!! Peace to the Arab world is Israel Annihilation it’s that simple!!
Even Arafat later admitted it was a mistake to turn down the deal. He was holding out for the return of the millions of Palestinian refugees displaced by israel's illegal occupation. His successor, Mahmoud Abbas, has led subsequent rounds of failed peace talks with three Israeli prime ministers. Israel only wants peace on THEIR terms.

Well, like you said, the military isn't for everyone. You were lucky enough not to have a physical condition that prevented you from serving...I might add, at taxpayer expense. The military has it's own welfare system.
