I can understand how a gutless screen name changing mental midget would be extremely intimidate by a BRILLIANT Rhodes scholar, wit and commentator like Dr. Maddow.
I can also understand how a mental midget is unable to comprehend the FACT that 'opinionated sources' can be scrupulously accurate.
Actually the unrest in Egypt grew from the unrest in Tunisia. Egyptian, Tunisian and Yemeni protesters all say that inequality is one of the main reasons they’re protesting.
“They’re all protesting about growing inequalities, they’re all protesting against growing nepotism. The top of the pyramid was getting richer and richer,” said Emile Hokayem of the International Institute for Strategic Studies in the Middle East.
INCOME INEQUALITY IN THE U.S. IS WORSE THAN IN EGYPT
[snip] Gini Coefficients are like golf – the lower the score, the better (i.e. the more equality). According to the CIA World Fact Book, the U.S. is ranked as the 42nd most unequal country in the world, with a Gini Coefficient of 45. In contrast:
Tunisia is ranked the 62nd most unequal country, with a Gini Coefficient of 40.
Yemen is ranked 76th most unequal, with a Gini Coefficient of 37.7.
Egypt is ranked as the 90th most unequal country, with a Gini Coefficient of around 34.4.
"And inequality in the U.S. has soared in the last couple of years, since the Gini Coefficient was last calculated, so it is undoubtedly currently much higher." http://thinkprogress.org/2011/01/31/income-in...
Unfortunately the US Chamber of Commerce, billionaire corporatists, and American companies are assisting the Mubarak regime to suppress free speech, free press, and free assembly. Good 10 minute video here: http://www.thomhartmann.com/bigpicture/us-cha...

Don't know if you know this, but picking up antlers you found is illegal in the State of New Mexico. It is considered poaching, if you can't prove you legally shot the deer in season, well the Game Wardens would have to fine you and take the antlers.
As for the coyotes, they are no way endangered in this country and thinning them out at times needs to be done. Coyotes can adjust to their current and new environment better then most other animals and actually flourish quite well. So thinning out the coyote population isn't really a bad thing. It keeps them in check as not over hunt their territories and cause them to look for food in your back yard i.e. Fluffy. I just wish the hunters use a little common sense and just not display their kills like the ones reported. Oh for the coyote hides, there is really no market for them.
What prmpoted this inane rambling ?!

God does not want us to kill his magnificent creatures. He wants us to care for them and protect them.

If you can't make it, then DON'T destroy it.

Don't we just e take the $4Trillion from the 10
private foreign banks and give to PR to dish out.

See how he can satisfy the masses of starving
people on this planet. We feed only what Michelle
O. claims is a good diet for the masses.

No soft drinks, no snacks, no salt, no sugar, no
calories, and no taste.

PR is the know all, see all, have all, for the
masses.

I'm sure that Thom Hartmann is a good comrade.
I'm sure that PR is a good comrade.
Now all we need is a bunch of comradery.

Thank you for all mankind.

Now let's turn off the internet.

Now we can all get our news from legitimate source.
Right PR?

Now if we can just get GWB to stay in his bunker.

Where is Monica L. when we need her?

YYY not?

Didn't God give man the plants and animals for their use? Man has been killing those magnificent creatures for millions of years in order to get our civiliation to where you are now. I do not think that mankind got to where it is today by grazing on grass. I do not condone the useless killing of animals, but afterall, we are a carniverous species

Fortunately over the last couple years, President Obama has raised the standing of America in the Middle East - Still a long damn way to go, but so much better.

And it sure appears he's threading the needle on this crisis. No anti-American signs, no burning American flags, ect. If Dubya was still around they'd probably be hanging him and Dead EyeDick in effigy!

Funny, Christiana Amampour reported being surrounded by an angry mob shouting how they hated America, and your favorite,Anderson Cooper reported being surrounded by thugs and beaten about the head, when they found out who he was. It would seem in the absence of anti- American signs and flag burnings, the hatred for America is still there.

Could it be that Obama gets along with the Middle East because he is a MUSLIM????? So says the Queen of Tin-Foil hats Rachel Madcow.

At this very moment 6:10 PM on Sptizer/Parker Anderson Cooper just reported every camera crew was being harassed regardless of the nation or network.

He also stated that last night he when the crowd showed up and started throwing rocks, he knew something had changed and that the instigators were the ones who attacked him.

While Anderson Cooper is as good as CNN has, he is still nothing but a corporate hack....my favorite? Not hardly.

SoundOff: "We watch coyotes from our porch in the mornings while we drink coffee and its great to see them in nature. You livestock people, let nature be."

They are. As creatures slightly more evolved than your average dog or dolphin, the ranchers are practicing "Survival of the Fittest."

Then what is the explanation for the anti-American shouts that Ms. Amanpour reported.

Humans are cariverous by choice. One can be a vegetarian. I ate meat nearly everyday for more than 40 years because that is they way I was raised. But the pastor of my Christian church convinced me to thoughtfully pray about whether God wants us to kill and eat his anaimals, or take care of them instead. After more than a year of prayer and thought on the matter, I decided my pastor was right, and I became a strict vegetarian. It is not as difficult as I thought it would be, I have been a vegetarian now for a dozen years, and I really believe that God wants us to live this way and not hurt, nor kill, nor eat, his animals. If you would not eat a cat or a dog, how can you justify eating another animal ?

Also, I'm nearing the end of an 8 year experiment seking to determine whether it's possible t live ONLY on beer and pizza. And the experiment is going VERY well !

To roughly paraphrase Machiavelli, a Prince has but two ways to rule. First, he can be seen as a beneficent ruler. Second, he could be viewed an a brutal tyrant. But NEVER may he be allowed to be viewed with contempt.
I believe the U.S. is held in contempt. And, deservedly so.

I can relate to the pizza and beer diet although I also added black coffee. That was back when drinking was acceptable in the military.

To the person that wants the Egyptions to fear America because of Republican leadership is asking for trouble. We should be supporting all peoples fighting for freedom. Most every leader from both parties agree. We want people from other countries to envy us no fear us. The president is doing a very good job of supporting the Egyptions and showing our other allies we don't turn on our friends. What do you want us to do, invade Egypt?
Short sited and ideological motivated as usual right-Allen! What Obama should be using his bully pulpit trying to engage the people here, and people in the streets in Egypt, to calm down and take a little time to set up a proper new government. Obama should be making it clear that the current leader will step down when he said he would; then Obama should go on to take steps to make sure the future elections in Egypt are free and fair so the people who vote are sure their votes count and mean something. You and I know if the current Egyptian leadership steps down now, the radicals will take over to fill the vacuum because they are the only ones with a structured system, the people of Egypt will never have freedom or the chance to vote for anyone. The Egyptian people that live here in America should see that likely hood and should be talking to their counter parts in Egypt encouraging them to accept the 8 months to the turn over power after the elections. The Egyptians in Egypt in the meantime should set up political parties and the parties should sell their view of what freedom in Egypt would look like under one of the potential new leader of the country during the 8 months. Then Egyptians could choose who would represent them best, a side from the group of Islamic radicals working in the back ground trying to stir up the people in the streets to do something stupid which would be a rush to change not knowing what they would be getting. We did that in America recently and it isn't working out to well. If what the Egyptians are demanding, or being prompted to demand, the current leader step down now, then Egypt will end up just like Iran. No freedom there I can assure you, just ask the family of the young woman "Nada" shot dead in the street as she peacefully protested a couple years back in Iran.
