LOL. He does seem to have fabricated quite a life for himself. It's rather pathetic, don't you think?
What really comes across to me more than anything is that Flack appears to be a lonely little man. It's amazing to me that there are those that come on here every day and regurgitate the same old crap. They are a miserable lot no doubt. I think they all are in need of psychological help. Oh well tomorrows another day and again we will hear their psychotic roar. Poor fools. Hell I'm happy I also enjoy their self imposed misery.

Here's the facts, smokey:
<<<The U.S.–Iraq Status of Forces Agreement (official name: "Agreement Between the United States of America and the Republic of Iraq On the Withdrawal of United States Forces from Iraq and the Organization of Their Activities during Their Temporary Presence in Iraq") was a status of forces agreement (SOFA) between Iraq and the United States, signed by President George W. Bush in 2008. It established that U.S. combat forces would withdraw from Iraqi cities by June 30, 2009, and all U.S. forces will be completely out of Iraq by December 31, 2011.>>>
So if Bush agreed to have all combat troops out of Iraq by Dec 2011,how is it Obama's fault that we actually took them out, per the agreement signed by George Bush??
Was Obama supposed to defy a document signed by his predecessor??
You get crazier by the day, Carol Facts are an alien concept to you.
You are correct. Bush signed the Iraq-US Status of Forces Agreement. The question is, do we still credit Obama for ending the war?

Watch the video and you tell us what you think it is.
It looks like a rocket rising from the sea to me. What does it look like to you?
I think all "expert" comments concluded the jet contrail explanation is hooey. I didn't see any "experts" say it was aliens leaving Earth to go back to the mother ship. And, it looks exactly like videos of US submarine ballastic missile tests, except the first D5 test that failed near Puerto Rico, which sought a horizontal path as soon as the rocket motors ignited, which means we have a video of a ICBM being launched and taking a horizontal path to compare it with.
This was a submarine ICBM launch.
Who are the only countries capable of launching an ICBM from a submarine? US, Russia, UK and England. Russia seems unlikely. UK seems unlikely. This administration may have been so incompetent it tested an ICBM right off of Malibu Beach.
The Russians tracked the rocket launch off the Oregon coast. I think if the Russians can track a rocket launch off the Oregon coast from Kamchatka, we can track it from here.
Let's review.
"As the Pentagon and their US mainstream media covered up the 10 November 2010 China missile launch, this MoD (Ministry of Defense) report continues, they have likewise labeled the 30 October missile launch as a fireball-meteor and the 20 November one as ‘maybe’ another fireball-meteor or contrail.
Important to note, Russian intelligence analysts in this report say, was that China warned the US about its planned 30 October launch test when on Sunday 27 October the world was given a rare glimpse into China's nuclear-powered submarine fleet, with State-owned media carrying extensive coverage of the previously mysterious strategic deterrence force."
China shows it's ICBM fleet to the world, then shows it to us up close.
You people really need to read mor than your propaganda bullshit.
sure pal...we can detect launches around the planet but not on our shores? sure..

was it bigfoot that launched it?

i've seen teh video.

we know where all the subs are. we would have known if a chinese one was there. it was not.

you are an easily mislead sheep.

<quoted text>Smoking isn't normal human behavior lily__it's suicide with "all the options."
There is a terrific TV ad running in our state presently__"would you choose your your children over smoking?" Most states don't have the TV ads Florida does because most states didn't share in Florida's legal windfall which must* be spent on anti tobacco advertising..
*must is a nebulous word eh?
There is no reason on earth to smoke cigarettes__none!!!
yet people from all cultures smoke. they always have since recorded history began.

there are many reasons to smoke. it is a drug administering system. people have used drugs of all kinds since recorded history. so with these facts in mind, one could make a very strong argument that smoking is indeed normal behavior. now doing any drug to the point of damage may not be normal behavior.

i've smoked most of my life. usually one or two a day. haven't had one in a long time now, but i certainly may again... i doubt that is suicide. i bet someone living in L.A. or Denver would have worse lungs than i do...

not sure why anyone would... the iraqi's had made it clear they wanted us out of there and we wanted out of there and the negotiations for that withdrawal were well on the way even as Obama was campaigning on ending that war. something lost on most people who applauded that mindlessly...

but, sadly, mindlessness and US poliical campaigns go hand in hand...

dude....you may have a degree but you are still an idiot....
Here are somethings to ponder while you are mowing my lawn....
framing (social sciences)
'Framing refers to the social construction of a social phenomenon often by mass media sources, political or social movements, political leaders, or other actors and organizations....
In the context of politics or mass media communication, a frame defines the packaging of an element of rhetoric in such a way as to encourage certain interpretations and to discourage others. For political purposes, framing is often times used to present facts in such a way that implicates a problem that is in need of a solution. Members of political parties attempt to frame issues in a way that makes a solution favoring their own political leaning appear to be the most appropriate course of action for the situation at hand...
(or)....
... people build a series of mental filters through biological and cultural influences. They use these filters to make sense of the world. The choices they then make are influenced by their creation of a frame. Framing is also a key component of sociology, the study of social interaction among humans. Framing is an integral part of conveying and processing data on a daily basis. Successful framing techniques can be used to reduce the ambiguity of intangible topics by contextualizing the information in a way the recipient can connect to what they already know."
not bad considering its wiki....
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Framing_%28socia...
so....when I post a link from the US gov that tells the READER that we are spending $50 million bucks to save sea lions that is an example of FRAMING.....duuuuuuuddddddd... ..

the fact is that the government convinced the suckers into converting to Roth IRAs to generate some up-front tax revenue...and now they are reneging on their promises.....
