You forget one tiny thing in your "socialist but not socialist" rave up. All the countries that you give as an example have a population that you could fit into a couple of our larger states. I see you don't mention China or Russia. I wonder why? Also, The population in your fave socialist countries is mostly Lily white. Hmmmm. When you get off work this morning, could you address those issues, Karnac?

Read his statement again. The charge is based on Perry threatening a veto. Dershowitz finds the claim bogus and political. You should have been able to figure that one out.
"Perry, as a means of intimidating the DA into resigning, publicly threatened to veto the Public Integrity Unitís budget. And when she didnít step down, he made good on his tough talk, gutting all of its funding ($8 million) for two years."

Roxlo loves Republicans that abuse their power. Probably why Roxlo loved W so much.

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz calls himself a "liberal Democrat who would never vote for Rick Perry," but he's still "outraged" over the Texas governor's indictment Friday on charges of abuse of power and coercion.

The charges are politically motivated and an example of a "dangerous" trend of courts being used to affect the ballot box and politics, he told Newsmax on Saturday.

"Everybody, liberal or conservative, should stand against this indictment," Dershowitz said. "If you don't like how Rick Perry uses his office, don't vote for him".

Ah gosh Dershowitz thinks the Democrats in Texas are pulling a political gamesmanship..

"Pre" 9/11...Surely, you must have known that's what I meant. But rather than correct me and respond to the obvious content of the post, you wimped out.
Let's start over.
So Saddam's history of using WMDs on his enemies "pre" 9/11 wouldn't have given you any reason to believe he wouldn't have found a way to get them to the USA somehow post 9/11?
Don't wimp out again. You have no escape route this time.
You say many stupid thongs, how would anyone know? You post a lot of outright lies & I really think you are just making up an excuse now because you got caught.

Pre 9-11 was what 10-15 years earlier?? Before Desert Storm, right. What history did Sadam have of any interest to attack the US?

What a bunch of typical liberal blatherskite that was probably copied and pasted because you're not smart enough to formulate your own thoughts. This is exactly the same kind of class warfare bilge that is echoed out of the mouths of community agitators like Obama. The fact you are trying to compare social programs in other countries that are infinitely smaller than America depicts how truly ignorant you are. All of those countries you listed don't spend anywhere near the amount of welfare that we do, which comprises over three-fourths of our GDP. There's a reason why we have a seventeen trillion dollar debt under this feckless president who has spent more money than every past Commander-in-Chief combined. Nothing like fifty million people on food stamps with a pathetic U6, huh? However, I'm sure you'll still blame Bush for Obama's deleterious liberal policies that have failed everywhere they've been implemented. By the way, I love how you chastise those who are smart enough to shelter their money offshore in order to preserve it. That's what deft people do when they don't want their money gouged even more by hapless dolts like Obama who hasn't met a dollar he wouldn't tax so he can buy more votes. If you don't like people like Obama and Romney investing elsewhere, the blame legislatures who allow that. Needless to say, get a clue and stop being covetous. The only thievery going on is from liberals like you who think they're entitled to someone else's money. As reiterated before, Socialism has failed everywhere it's been implemented. Name me one poor person who has created a job since you think Keynesian Economics is so great?

You and the Devil have a combined IQ of 90. The population of Sweden and Norway is 15,300,876 and in both countries the population is overwhelmingly the native peoples.

Why don't you and the Devil emigrate your useless arses to Sweden? Christ! Because of the 33 Million do nothings and trouble makers you folks provide, the US needs more police and social services workers than the population of those two dinky places.

U.N. Committee Is Investigating Why Persistent Racism Continues To Plague The U.S.

It is a sad, sad, commentary indeed that a nation founded on racism over 238 years ago, fought a bloody Civil War, suffered through a bloody Civil Rights movement, and elected an African American man as President is being investigated by an international watchdog for its predilection to racism and civil and human rights violations against people of color. Of course, the mainstream media will never report that Americaís racism is under investigation, or that there is even overwhelming racial disparity in this country. However, the American people are well-aware that racism is rampant, and instead of admitting there is a problem primarily stemming from white supremacists in the conservative movement, they refuse to openly acknowledge the problem. And why should they? When they are white, it is easier to ignore the simple fact that being African American or Latino in America means being a second-class citizen at the mercy of white supremacists in the conservative movement and law enforcement seeking out the next unarmed African American to gun down in cold blood. Fortunately, the United Nations, and the entire world, is not ignoring racist America any longer and they are watching and speaking out.

My comment was consistent with the chief's as it should be as it came from a video which picked up a conversation between two police about the event.
ďBecause they were walking down the middle of the street blocking traffic.Ē Jackson later said that "at some point" during the encounter, the officer saw the cigars in Brown's hands and thought he might be a suspect.

I love it when you whiners claim to know sh*t when you are 100% wrong.

The police chief clearly said the officer that shot Brown had no knowledge of the robbery.

Right Wing Explodes Into Unbelievable Racism Over St. Louis Riots

This is why there are so few black conservatives. Not because they want free stuff from liberals but because the right canít, even for one second, hide their utter contempt for the entire black community.

Just donít call them racist because thatís just you playing the race card.

Not exactly true. The responding officer was aware of the assault and was responding to it when he noticed two males walking down the middle of the road. He initially stopped to tell them to get off the road. When he attempted to open his door, Brown slammed it shut. He then realized these two were the suspects. He eventually got out of the car and was shoved back in the car by Brown who delivered several blows to the policeman--now it is a full fledged felony.

Please don't confuse liberals with the facts because they're completely devoid of them. It never ceases to amaze me with the amount of fatuous drivel that comes out of their mouths. It's like a vicious cycle of dullards who spew out the same things over and over because they can't think for themselves. These are the same people who have become ensnared in a system that continues to keep them down thereby depending on the government for handouts. The idea that they want to try and compare those miniscule countries to America, which houses nearly 315 million people, is probably one of the dumbest things I've ever read. Then to add insult to injury, this same ignoramus is lauding Canada's health care system, which is inefficient with major wait times? There is a reason why people fly to the US for treatment because these Socialized models can't possibly accommodate everyone. That said, don't these greedy liberal parasites have any shame in stealing other people's money?
