Since the end of World War II any enemy of the United States is a friend to the Democrats. They are part of the war against the United States. Anyone who expects Democrats to help us is fooling themselves.
There is only one solution to ISIS. Total annihilation. Agree. Let's just go there and kill them.

police are racist....
and shooting suspects...
'Participants in an innovative Washington State University study of deadly force were more likely to feel threatened in scenarios involving black people. But when it came time to shoot, participants were biased in favor of black suspects, taking longer to pull the trigger against them than against armed white or Hispanic suspects.'

It's a sad commentary on the life of the black man but claiming police officers are "racist" is a smoke screen for what it really is...blacks deserving of extra scrutiny because they are the ones committing homicides. That may lead to an unconscious bias on the part of police officers but it's not "racism. That is not a "racist" statement, it is just FACT. The study you linked to did not accuse police officers of being "racist". People should not deny facts just because they find them humiliating or incendiary.

When Obama speaks to blacks about their "bad choices", he is accused of "speaking down to blacks". When he quotes, "Excuses are tools of the incompetent, used to build bridges to nowhere and monuments of nothingness", he is accused of "speaking down to blacks". IMO, that response is nothing more than avoidance of the self-assessment that is necessary to stop being victims.

Would you call Jesse Jackson "racist"?

"There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved...." (Jesse Jackson)

I wish I had answers. I don't. But calling police officers "racist" is a disservice to everyone and a stumbling block to meaningful dialogue.

Combat ceased in Desert Storm with a cease fire, you moron. There was never an end to the war Saddam Hussien started. The UN left open the option to resume military action should Saddam Hussein not comply with the UN resolutions. Saddam Hussein was in violation of 18 UN resolutions when the Democrats voted to fight the war the Arab muslims started in Iraq in exchange for the Republicans giving them no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program that collapsed our economy after two years (fuck you) oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank, from whom we heard a constant stream of lies right up to the collapse, idiot.
lol! No son. Combat operations ended when bush sr hit the UN objectives.

Geez your self delusional history is really an object lesson on how to make things up!!!

Flack duped yet again by a denier site.
I can make any graph that should show variation show none. Its all in scaling.
The only way the ratio of the change in temperature & the change of CO2 would approach zero is if the rate of change of the temperature approached zero or the change of the CO2 would get extremely large.
There was little increase in CO2 emissions until 1950-1970 & then it increased dramatically.
The fact is more CO2 heightens the greenhouse gas effect. Actually what your article is really saying is we have to cut a lot of CO2 emission to get the ave. global temperatures to quit rising & decline.
.
but, there is no proof that temperatures are rising, so all your blather about carbon dioxide means nothing....

For those who enjoy polls...

According to Pew Research 91% of Tea Party mutts and 78% of Republicans view ISIS as a threat to the US while 63% of Independents and 65% of Democrats see ISIS as a threat.

Looks like the 24 hour news cycle owns the fragile minds.

... morons.

The intel they voted on was the exact same intel Clinton used to bomb Iraq every other goddam day, idiot.
Besides, Cheney was Vice President. The Vice President of the United States does not collect intelligence. Intelligence is collected for him. The intel that was given to him was verified by Valerie Plame, head of the CIA's Joint Task Force on WMDs in Iraq. The intel came from Germany, France and Russia, who were being paid to rebuild Saddam Hussein's war machine with money Saddam Hussein was stealing from the UN's oil-for-food scam.

You're an ignorant dupe, so to speak.
