I will give you the same question I gave to another poster and still waiting for an answer to.
Did Wilson's efforts to claim we had no interest in the war involving Europe and most of Asia and attempting to appease all parties keep us out of WW One?
Did Wilson's attempts to "mediate" a solution that would make all parties happy keep us out of WWI?
When did Wilson claim "we had no interest"?
Would you have favored war in 1914... if so against whom?

"Did Wilson's attempts to "mediate" a solution that would make all parties happy keep us out of WWI?" ----- This makes no sense. "All parties happy" :-)

Do you know why we entered World War One?
Appeasement was British policy of the conservative party in the 1930s

Some history about Hamas and myths that are being circulated

Shortly after Palestine was given a seaport in 2007. Hamas launched a bloody civil war against Fatah, took over the port and declared they would use it to destroy Israel

In response Israel placed an embargo that permitted it to search cargo ships for weapons. The UN 2011 Palmer Report declared this was legal

Yes!

The problem with health care is hiding in plain sight. The costs of health care are simply too high. Outrageously and unjustifiably too high. Unless the spotlight is put on the health care industry and until they are held accountable for these exorbitant and often unnecessary health care costs, we're going to keep chasing our tails.

I've been saying this since day one...and that was more than three decades ago.

Funny. Reich wingers supported putin and laughed at Obama.

So what I don't understand is why you people don't cheer the Malaysian Air shoot down?

Patrick you appear to be clueless what was the US stance through the first part of World War One. You also appear to NOT even know what Wilson's second term slogan was.

You need to do something you loathe and research this so you can make comments that shows some understanding of the event

What do you think mediations is for, Patrick?

Again, you go off topic rather than answer why you posted something irrelevant in your previous post to what was said.

I think you are playing games rather than trying to give honest replies.

So MSN reported today that Insurance exchange customers who plan to renew their coverage for 2015 will likely receive dated and inaccurate financial aid amounts from the government. And if those amounts are too low, they're going to get sticker shock over their new premiums and, if too high, will owe the tax man later.
Any comment about that? You still think Obamacare was the right solution, right?
I thought that the first rule of health care was to do no harm.

H-m-m-m...how many States are there, Mr. Magic Negro?

Can I keep my Health Insurance and my doctor if I like them?

Didn't you earlier claim that Obamacare would *lower* the cost of American healthcare?

What's wrong with you, Azzhole?

Also, Patrick, unless and until we start to accept health care professionals as being human without getting their pants sued off, the outrageous costs of medical malpractice insurance - doctors, hospitals and clinics combined - will continue to add to the outrageous costs of patients not only paying for far too many unnecessary and often very expensive tests to ensure physicians not getting sued but the cost of their costly malpractice insurance being passed on to them.

It's become a vicious cycle that's become very expensive. That cycle has to be broken before health care becomes affordable for all Americans again.

Wish I could shout it from the rooftops.

SinceYou have run away read about real Americans!
Dear Madame President,
As someone who, during 16 years in the United States Congress, has celebrated the US-South Korean friendship and who maintains deep ties with the Korean community in the United States, I respectfully write to express my concern about the policies of your government, which are anti-democratic and which discredit the sacrifices that American soldiers made so many years ago in Korea's defense.
The arrest and imprisonment of an elected member of your Congress, Lee Seok-ki, on charges of sedition, will be noted by members of the United States Congress who are painfully aware of the personal and political risks which can attend challenging an administration whose politics greatly differ. Your attempt to outlaw an opposing political party, your use of your National Intelligence Service (NIS) for political purposes, your cabinet's obstruction of justice in attempts to investigate the NIS, your attempt to cast as disloyal to South Korea all who disagree with your administration, your use of illegal surveillance of civilians, your use of Cold War rhetoric to attack those who legitimately question your policies, and your use of official resources, including state social media resources, to influence the result of elections, raise legitimate questions about whether or not you have any commitment to democratic values.
Today, Sunday July 27th, I join others in Washington DC, and people around the country and around the world, to observe the 61st anniversary of the Korean War Armistice. It is my hope that the 33,686 US soldiers who gave their lives in Korea, together with another 8,176 US soldiers who were missing in action, did not make the ultimate sacrifice in defense of your freedom to enable freedom's destruction under your government.
In today's world, there is always an intersection of interests. As members of the US Congress learn of your policies, you may well find that it will be necessary to correct your course by stopping all practices that undermine principles of democracy, self-governance, separation of powers and human rights.
In honor of the Armistice, please give the world a chance to celebrate your commitment to the values which brought this nation to your defense.
Sincerely,
Dennis J. Kucinich
Member of the United States Congress, 1997-2013
