Actually the Muslim Religion is more akin the the Religious Practices of the "Secular Hedonist Religions of the Libertine Narcissist Sects" that seek first the sacrifices of others for their desires of the 7 Deadly Sins.

Please show me where I condoned torture.

Oh by the way

Black Bush obama just dismissed the staff that was suppose to close GUANTANAMO BAY.

Guantanamo prison is still open.

So you approve of Bush's torture. AND killing of citizens without proper due process.

Doesn't feel good to be falsely spoken for does it?

I suggest you try to refrain from cheap juvenile word games if you wish to have any credibility..

Then again...maybe you never did have any credibility?

There are tons more like you and me.
Progressives days are limited.
They don't stand for anything but the party.
And there are more people like us then there are of so called "hyperpartisan" progressives and Republicans.
Good, I am no longer interested in being "nice". There is nothing nice about destroying my children's future with Debt, and a Police State that has been created by "Leaders" (gag) that lead with fear!

It is no better to be controlled by the Republicans that control with a fear of "Terror", than it is to be controlled by Demokrats that control with a fear of "Unfair".

If you were here on Topix 6 years ago, you would know that i supported the Election of Barry Soetoro over McCain. Why? Barry would assure a more rapid decline that would accelerate the collapse so that the mess can be fixed. Barry has not let me down.

Sadly, the destruction that Barry was able to accomplish in 4 years was not enough for America!

Like any Addict, the country did not find its "bottom" in 4 years of Progress towards Totalitarian "Rule of Man" that Barry and Company brought to my Country.

80% of Americans did not vote for the Son of Communists, but 2/3 of Americans DID NOT VOTE!

So, it will take more self destruction before the Addict can change......about 4 more years of destruction, unless Patriots that Live under the Rule of Law can stop the Addicts living under the rules of man,(A Messiah), in 2014.

Hi woodtick. So in hypotheticals, the next logical question is can drone strikes be used in America against American citizens pre-emptively like they are being used overseas? Where is the limit to the CIA program? So waterboarding is bad, but killing American citizens that potentially haven't done anything wrong is OK? Can the drones be used for surveillance of all citizens? Is there any expectation of privacy at all with the Patriot Act being continuously renewed by Congress at the request of the President?

i have no problem with good interrogation techniques. the problem with the ones that were used is they were not good. they were not even interrogation techniques, they were designed to get people to say what you want them to say.

if you think Bush was the first to sequester prisoners without trial, you are delusional. it's just the previous ones actually got real intel from them as they used teh proper techniques..

So the Pelosi controlled house and Reid controlled senate didn't fund the closure of Guantanamo. Ouch, Obama scuttled by his own party. Must hurt.

(I know you are nice to Woody and you kinda like him, so I will leave this conversation alone)

Good luck getting a rational response to these Uncomfortable and Wise questions.....Or any response at all.

I will back off and read the wisdom that your question brings forth from illogical posters unable to create a cohesive thought.

Are you drunk ~!?

You seem to be a troubled person....

If you toned it down and spoke a little more eloquently
you thoughts and words would be more appreciated and welcomed.

But to others who read your words...
You seem unhinged and emotionally unstable.

You seem to be very concerned with fights with individual posters but you should be more concerned about 10 others that may read your words.

You think you are winning battles..but you are losing the war.

Hi Consistent. I also understand your viewpoints. Woodtick thinks differently about things than you or I do. He also does not rely solely on personal attacks to have a rational discourse. I appreciate your thoughts on this matter, and hope to have a discussion with someone who disagrees with me without having it descend into personal attacks like the LeJumbo/Slewsie personas.

Your willingness to not engage in a thoughtful debate is boring me.

Have any more assumptions about my views?

For someone who has a registered name..
You are awfully negative and accusatory.

So you approve of executive power having authority to usurp the constitution they swore an oath to uphold?

Actually if you read my post correctly that is.
I was replying to someone else.

I just don't understand why you are so accusatory and so angry.

Haven't had time to have a bad day yet.

Feel free to respond civilly.
