So it wasn't important that we get the real perpetrators of 911, it was far better to sacrifice hundreds of thousands in a country that had absolutely nothing to do with 911? Right idiot.Bush - Cheney and their band of chickenhawks are the absolute worst thing that ever happened to this nation. PERIOD.
It was better to eliminate any potential threat after 9/11 in the Middle East. Didn't you hear Hillary's passionate speech on the Senate floor as to why Saddam had to go? She was one of the other 111 Democrats who stood by Bush to remove him from power.

Your assumed next presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, voted for the Iraq War.

Others have a worm. Some have a prawn.
Ever heard of the joke about ordering salmon for dinner and being served a prawn salad.
Well being dumped on with something unordered in life can lead to suffering by all parties involved.
One argument to this is that brain evolution had stopped. And people were waking up brain-dead.
And (that this is no conspiracy at all) that in want to a given answer animals moved into to the equation with a plausible answer.
That the animals are not the parasite but a temporary slave. Until the world figures out how to keep people both sane and alive.
Nostradamus would have us believe on the other hand that "behold a wicked coming" of our brains being taken (not eaten by the parasite) for "talking heads".
I am afraid to announce that talking heads amongst the cryogenic community is true.
Nostradamus was and still is in my estimation a genius.

I am a white male who voted for Obama. Not because I am a democrat. I am an independent.
I just thought he was the best candidate. He seemed much more deliberate than his predecessor, which I believe was sorely needed after the Iraq war mistake. And a few other issues too.
And I also hoped that by electing a black man to the office of the President, it would serve as hope and inspiration to all those young black people who may feel their opportunities are limited.
and how did all that work out.....

race relations in the crapper, the world on fire, and the economy sucks....

On Tuesday, LA Weekly reported that several upscale restaurants in the City of Angels will be adding a 3 percent surcharge to cover their employees' healthcare costs, a trend that has been gaining steam since Obamacare launched nearly one year ago.
Beginning on September 1, restaurants Lucques, Tavern, A.O.C, and a few offshoots all added a 3 percent Obamacare surcharge to customers' checks, explicitly stating in a press release their decisions hinged on covering employee healthcare costs.
Lucques Group, Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne, owners of the restaurants, also named several other restaurant groups that will be duplicating their efforts; Restaurants Rustic Canyon, The Hungry Cat and Melisse were among those mentioned.
All republican owned. Who would have guessed.

Get real pusseee. The army makes men not cry babies like you, I would have had you crying like a girl you wimp. My men loved me and I loved them, I never asked them to do anything that I wouldn't do.. You are a typical traitor you use your twisted and warped views like the Duck Dynasty idiot. So quit crying on my shoulder, be a man for once in your life... Soo you think you are a good spokesperson for your alleged 21 years in the USAF...A stone hypocrite you are. Now from me to you GFY.
By law you can be recalled to active duty and be charged for conduct unbecoming...(this is rare)
I know...I witnessed a NCO who was retired for several years recalled back to active duty and tried, and convicted.....he was reduced in pay to E1....and served time...

my warning to you is stop shooting off your mouth...

Commissioned officers (former or present) do not call people 'baggers' or 'pusseee' and they don't tell anyone to GFY....

Galt had a point. The photo of Brown with headphones does not portray Brown as we have come to know him. I'm not condemning the use of the photo of Brown with headphones. Just acknowledging that it isn't fooling anyone. The truth is the truth and people on both sides need to accept it.
Fact is, the media isn't printing the pictures of Brown brandishing gang signs for a reason. Same as they are not printing pictures of Wilson showing him to be the "tall, study" man we have come to know him to be. Hardly a slouch. IMO, they are walking a tight rope. Trying not to prejudice a jury pool.
Sadly, as I have mentioned before, police do "profile" black youth but, as we all know, that is because they are the ones committing most of the crimes. As frustrating, degrading and embarassing to the black community as this may be, sweeping the truth under the rug serves an injustice. We must all come up with answers to give these kids hope in their future. Making excuses helps no one.
That said, I'm not convinced that ordinances are passed to target black youth. They are not the only ones wearing baggy pants showing off their underwear. The seaside town of Wildwood, NJ has banned saggy pants on its boardwalk.
I did look at the Ocala Ordinance and it was proposed by a black councilwoman and pertains only to city owned property.
"Ocala city attorney Patrick Gilligan said authorities weren't necessarily looking to lock up every sagger on the street.
"We are not looking to charge people," Gilligan told the local Star Banner newspaper.
"If they don't comply, I think the chief will tell police officers to take your phone out and take a picture."
Seems ridiculous to believe anyone would be arrested and jailed for wearing saggy pants.
http://www.westernjournalism.com/breaking-mic...
Ahem__western journalism is Joseph Farah and therefore right wing lies and nonsense no different than WND. Screw that craziness.

Correct that Ocala is not looking to charge people__they are however looking to approach and talk to young black males for no particular reason beyond a form of attire that while ridiculous is legal.

As a result many of those young black males with be taken into custody and charged with something.

Did Darren Wilson know Michael Brown?

Did Darren Wilson know that Michael Brown had ripped off a convenience store and pushed around an owner/employee.

That's all that matters.

First of all, Dante has been hired as a "National Security fellow", not a "journalist". According to Huffington Post jobs website, "Fellowships usually lasts six months, giving our Fellows the opportunity to discover whether HuffPost is the right place to launch their career."
Now, on Donte's conviciton, Huffington Post Washington bureau chief Ryan Grim had this to say “We obviously believe in redemption and second chances."
We wouldn't expect a conservative to understand that concept.
As far as his truther comments, Stallworth has responded, "I no longer feel the way I did in that tweet 5 years ago.... After a lot of reading and researching on it, my views changed... and that's ok.... Credit goes to James Bamford, whose great book disabused me of that stuff and showed what a disastrous intelligence failure 9/11 was."
Stallworth was convicted of DUI manslaughter, not because of his "feelings".....

Why Does The Left Support Obesity-Causing, Artery-Clogging Fast Food?

Left wingers are willing to sacrifice the actual interests [and health] of the poor in service to their aspirations of political power.

A perennial dream of the American progressives is to organize fast food workers into a union, a move that would be an absolute disaster for the intended beneficiaries. Today, a purported 150 cities will see fast food strikes, as MSNBC approvingly reports:

Thousands of fast food workers across the United States were walking off the job Thursday morning, affecting restaurants in about 150 cities nationwide.

It was just the latest in a series of coordinated strikes that have taken place since November 2012...

Thuggery is not being ruled out, of course:

Organizers would not confirm on the record whether civil disobedience and arrests would take place in any of the cities affected by the strikes, but fast food workers have repeatedly vowed to take whatever measures are necessary in order to win a $15 hourly wage and union rights.
