Vlad sez he pulled his troops back, but I don't think the game is over. We need to tread very carefully now. Stop massing our troops (NATO too) on their border... Stop sending any ships into the Black Sea. We've screwed the Russians over when they were weak, now we want to press them when they are in a position of strength and we are on the decline? If anyone wants to go toe to toe with Russia they are a fool.

The next time Waco whines about how mean liberals are and "why can't we all just get along", let's remind him that he was the one who wrote this:

The fact remains that the southeastern region of the U.S. has the highest murder rate. Isn't this also an area where religion is stressed? I just hope everyone executed in Texas was actually guilty, and since nine of the top ten states for murder rate have the death penalty, it doesn't act as much of a deterrent.
Everyone executed in Texas WAS NOT actually guilty.

These are just two cases that I've read about. And when there are two, you can bet there are many more.

I remember reading about how Texas governor George W. Bush laughed & mocked that woman on death row. A man who claimed he was such a "Christian" mocked a dead woman. No matter how guilty she was, it was despicable for him to have mimicked & mocked a woman whose death warrant he signed.

"RW Christians".....Southern- style.

Waco: "How many of the murdered individuals were killed by actual practicing Christians?
Hmmm?"

Practicing? That's a fairly relative term, don't you think?

I'd say that the majority of the Republican propaganda squad, starting with the repulsive Sarah Palin, claim to be practicing Christians. And while their criminal actions don't land them in prison, their idea of Christianity is a far cry from mine.

TSF was providing information that had a direct relationship to something I had written about RW propaganda.

TSF didn't bring Prescott Bush up as some STRAW MAN to an unrelated topic in the way that you go back decades to find some old news as one of your typical foolish attempts at producing a rebuttal.

I hope you can see the difference now that I've explained it to you.

We are not discussing Muslims in other countries. We are discussing how the RELIGIOUS REPUBLICAN SOUTH has the highest rate of murder....and divorce.....and love of pornography......and STDs......and teen pregnancy......

"THE MORAL HYPOCRISY OF THE BIBLE BELT

We hear an awful lot from conservatives in the Bible Belt and on the TV about how we all should be living.

And lots of ripe fruit from their morally superior lives abounding.

It doesn't. Far from it. People that talk the loudest may be the ones walking the slowest. Joining its history of Biblically correct bigotry and discrimination, it is an area with the highest divorce, murder, STD/HIV/AIDS, teen pregnancy, single parent homes, infant mortality, and obesity rates in the nation. As a region, the Bible Belt has the poorest health care systems and the lowest rates of high school graduation. The evangelical Barna Survey Group also tells us that conservative Christians have the highest rates of divorce of any religious group in the US. Atheists and Catholics had the lowest. Nationally, Massachusetts and Connecticut (those liberal northeastern states!) have the strongest marriages."

"NC Republicans push industry desires in bill that would jail anyone who discloses fracking chemicals

Twenty states now require companies to disclose the chemicals they use in the hydraulic fracturing process used to pry gas and oil from tight geological formations. But, as part of the omnibus Energy Modernization Act, SB 786, North Carolina Republicans want to impose civil and criminal penalties, including prison time, on anyone who makes such a disclosure.

The bill has nine co-sponsors, all of them Republicans. Both houses of the state legislature have Republican super-majorities.

Molly Redden at Mother Jones reports:

"The felony provision is far stricter than most states' provisions in terms of the penalty for violating trade secrets," says Hannah Wiseman, a Florida State University assistant law professor who studies fracking regulations.

The bill also allows companies that own the chemical information to require emergency responders to sign a confidentiality agreement. And it's not clear what the penalty would be for a health care worker or fire chief who spoke about their experiences with chemical accidents to colleagues.

"I think the only penalties to fire chiefs and doctors, if they talked about it at their annual conference, would be the penalties contained in the confidentiality agreement," says Wiseman. "But [the bill] is so poorly worded, I cannot confirm that if an emergency responder or fire chief discloses that confidential information, they too would not be subject to a felony."

Michael Biesecker of the Associated Press reported last week that three members of the state's Mining and Energy Commission met privately with officials of companies that use fracking chemicals before the bill was introduced. Among them was Halliburton. The bill assigns the task of issuing fracking licenses to the commission."

NC Republicans at work......poisoning YOU so that FRACKERS can get richer.

If you knew anything about The South, you'd know we really don't appreciate it when people point out our shortcomings with facts supported by unbiased, hard data.

We'd much prefer it if you'd simply just make things up, throw in two scoops of But The Bible Says Somewhere, and say something derogatory about cultures we know nothing about.

Your comment, though accurate and compelling, lacks the vitriol and stupidity that keeps our media consumption at a level best understood with a faulty education and problems stemming from fetal alcohol syndrome.

My advice is to change it around a bit with random, unsubstantiated comments, add some spelling and grammatical errors, and modify the tone to match a rabid Plott hound.

I can tell anyone for a CERTAIN FACT that North Carolina NEEDS KAY
HAGEN. I have asked for her help on 3 different major problems and she immediately started working on them and came through on all of them!
Richard Burr just send me a run around letter. He never even tried to lift a finger. Also I asked Kay for help for my neighbor and she once again immediately started working to help him. There are NOT MANY IN WASHINGTON, DC these days that truly care for the people who sent them there to represent them!!!! But Kay Hagen certainly DOES!!!!!!

How can you say this stuff? Haven't you been paying attention to what is and is NOT being voted on in the House which is under GOP CONTROL! Do you think it is fair that we are giving the BIG OLD COMPANIES over 6 million a year to go out and search for oil? Look what we are paying at the pump and the oil companies are making the biggest profits in the history of any company not only in the US but around the world. I live on a very fixed small income that is totally dependent on the Social Security that I worked and paid into for many, many years prior to having a heart attack on my job and my medicare. I can assure you that I totally pay attention to who votes for what and where they stand. I EARNED my Social Security and my medicare.
I depend on them. If you work take a look at your paycheck stub from every pay check you get they take out FICA and Medicate. You are paying for it but if they have they way you will NEVER EVER BE ABLE TO COLLECT ANY OF IT BACK!!!!!! The only reason the man in the White House hasn't done more is simply because the GOP (most especially the Tea Partiers) would rather die that let him get anything that could make him look good. It is totally and completely block everything. They only care for the ultra RICH and the big corporations and banks. Look how they how so many more rights that you or any middle class or poor American. Take time to check out what has been brought up for vote and how it was blocked or passed and see just whom it helps! Check it out for your self. If you truly think Richard Burr cares for us average North Carolinas you need to think again. Also HE IS NOT GOING TO BE ON THE BALLOT his time. He was on the 2012 ballot!!!!!!!!!! So this November you can NOT VOTE FOR HIM!!!!!

He has pulled the wool over our eyes with his pretty boy smile and good speaking voice. He has driven this country so deep in debt we may see the American economy come crashing down. In just 2 years the Obama administration with help from the Democratic leadership in congress (Reid and Pelosi) has spent more and created more debt for the American taxpayers to pay back than THE LAST 4 ADMINISTRATIONS COMBINED!!!
I just don't like Elaine Marshall. She is in Obama's corner and would be a Harry Reid-Nancy Peloski ass kisser if elected. And let's face it. We already have one ugly woman senator from NC. Elaine has that dried up prune eating, regular shit every morning bitch look. WHY IN HELL DO WE NEED TWO BUTT UGLY WOMEN FROM NC IN THE US SENATE????
Like most Americans I am fed up with Washington and especially the idiot in the White House who has put this country so deep in debt the whole economy might come crashing down.
