Why do Progressives run from the Arab Spring now? You were very much in support of it.
You have no clue of what happened--do you? What money you ask? Money sent to countries involved in the Arab Spring such as Egypt and Libya. A reward for their uprisings
So, you agree we were directly involved in the Arab Spring in Libya.
I get it,. We NEVER EVER supported Egypt prior to the Arab Spring,.

Just how GD stupid are you???

We were militarily involved in preventing a civilian slaughter in Libya.

Yes we support groups opposed to leaders we don't like and want to see replaced. It was done long before any Arab Spring.

The question is why aren't you in favor of Democracy? The right for people to chose their leaders?

...when you are a terrorists...everyone you know is a civilian...

'Analyses of the casualties listed in the daily reports published by the Palestinian Center for Human Rights, a Gaza-based organization operating under Hamas rule, indicate that young males ages 17 to 30 make up a large portion of the fatalities, and a particularly noticeable spike occurs between males ages 21 to 27, a pattern consistent with the age distribution typically found among combatants and military conscripts. Palestinian sources attempt to conceal this discrepancy with their public message by labeling most of these young men as civilians.'

Could you turn on the switch to an industrial vacuum and suck out a human life with a beating heart, functioning organs and a central nervous system? And still sleep at night?
If your answer is yes, then you have no room to lecture someone else about morality and sit in judgment.
If no, then, by all means, let's keep the discussion going.
So how many abortions have you had? If you still feel guilty about it then forgive yourself and be happy that those children didn't have to grow up with a nutjob phony Christian evangelical zealot who projects her guilt onto others in the guise of self righteous bullshyt; Morality, my azz.

It's always you sickos who try to act all holier than thou who have done the most fkd up stuff in their lives. The rest of us just live our lives.

I have news, State GOVERNMENTS have been setting policy minimum for years.
Where were you then?
To eliminate pre-existing conditions, you need the mandate.
If you have a mandate you have to define what is considered having coverage.
Its not that f*cking complicated that even a dumbf*ck like you can't get it.
Having regulation does not mean it is not a private industry. Every industry is regulated.

Obama's glaring and greatest weakness -- namely his inability to make hard decisions in crisis and lead opposing forces through or out of them -- has cost America on every front. It has further divided Washington and our nation and jeopardized our standing with the global community and even our allies, leaving us in a much more unstable place in our world.

Though most people in 2008 seemed to laud Obama's personality as a needed polar opposite to George W. Bush's, especially in an era that required the repairing of international relations, Obama's personality pendulum swing was way too far to the other side.

Without even the experience and skills of a used car salesman, Obam hasn't been able to lead our country through war, divisive crises or emergency conflicts, which often require unpopular actions.

Obama's voting record as an Illinois state senator showed his inability to take a stand in a crisis.

His own Democratic colleagues couldn't understand why he had voted "present" (instead of "yes" or "no") 129 times, including a number of noncommittal tallies on gun rights and abortion.

Lacking substance and executive experience, Obumbles unpresidential style is pitching polarities, demonizing his opposition and casting blame to justify his own divisiveness and inability to bridge gaps.

What America needs now more than ever are leaders like those from decades ago who knew how to agree to disagree agreeably, confronted tough challenges together and advanced our nation forward despite their differences.

There is no hope for America until Obumbles and his scowling wife are busy writing more untruthful autobiographies and selling speeches instead of campaign fundraising, golfing and vacationing from the White House.

Obamacare IS Medicare. Except millions more will be covered. You must think there's a money tree growing in the Rose Garden too.
The middle class are burdened enough already. Those who don't qualify for the free subsidies will be paying out the wazoo in premiums and deductibles.
So you want to do away with the middle class who can't afford health care?
Snap out of it. Please.
That makes ObamaKare Medicaid.

Oh you mean like the military dictatorship of Fulgencio Bautista that was supported by the Eisenhower administration which also put the Shah in power in Iran overthrowing its democratically elected president? Or how about the regime of Augusto Pinochet in Chile which was put into power by the Nixon administration again overthrowing a democratically elected president?
You don't know much about history do you Carol?
(Carol busy googling! Chile? HA; she probably can't find it on a map)

(Carol asking Google; are there any black people in Chile?)

Hey Rookie!!

Go back and read the 5+ years you missed before you decided to show up here and dispense your lame 'wisdom'. DUH

We've been discussing Annie Rand in detail here for that long.

My screenname was Ayn Rand (unregistered) until one of the nitwits hijacked it and pulled a Waxman.

The nitwit who hijacked my name now uses 'John Galt'.

Patrick likely knows more about Tinkerbell Rand than you know about spreading mulch.

You walk into the middle of years long discussions and consider yourself an expert.

A little humility would serve you well.

Afterwards we supported the Muslim Brotherhood--explain to me how this group could ever be a US ally. It is stupid to think radical groups have any interest beyond promoting their radical agendas.

There is massive civilian slaughter in Syria and Iraq happening now. Where is the US? Sniveling in the corner as this is jihadist group. You don't replace a dictator for an ideology three times worse.

Democracy involves slaughtering infidels is your logic?

I like the hypocrisy of the Progressive who rant long on separation of church and state until they want to bash another for not living up to the "Christian" values -whatever a Progressive thinks they are--and then suddenly they are all in for it.
