Higgans,
Apparently the first paragraph did not post.. Or at least part of the first paragraph..
The begining should had included, Yes, NTR was telling the truth about living a monogamous marriage with all three of her marriages. All three husbands left her... And NTR does not believe in infidelity.. Unfortunately her husband does not share in that same belief..........

I also made some typo corrections, no buggy, y'all got the gist...

In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the
University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the
Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior: "A democracy is always
temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent
form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until
the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous
gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority
always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from
the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally
collapse over loose fiscal policy,(which is) always followed by a
dictatorship."

"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the
beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200
years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage."
The Obituary follows:

Born 1776, Died 2012
It doesn't hurt to read this several times.
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in
St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning
the last Presidential election:

Number of States won by: Obama: 19 Romney: 29
Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 Romney: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million Romney: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama: 13.2 Romney: 2.1

Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory
Romney won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens
of the country.

Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low
income tenements and living off various forms of government
welfare..."

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the
"complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of
democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population
already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.

If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million
criminal invaders called illegals - and they vote - then we can say
goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

If you are in favor of this, then by all means, delete this message.

If you are not, then pass this along to help everyone realize just how
much is at stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our
freedom.
Your post is Bogus !!! Olson denied even saying this. Read this article :

The resolution cited many factors to justify the use of military force against Iraq:[2][3]
Iraq's noncompliance with the conditions of the 1991 ceasefire agreement, including interference with U.N. weapons inspectors.
Iraq's alleged weapons of mass destruction, and programs to develop such weapons, posed a "threat to the national security of the United States and international peace and security in the Persian Gulf region."
Iraq's "brutal repression of its civilian population."
Iraq's "capability and willingness to use weapons of mass destruction against other nations and its own people".
Iraq's hostility towards the United States as demonstrated by the 1993 assassination attempt on former President George H. W. Bush and firing on coalition aircraft enforcing the no-fly zones following the 1991 Gulf War.
Members of al-Qaeda, an organization bearing responsibility for attacks on the United States, its citizens, and interests, including the attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, are known to be in Iraq.
Iraq's "continu[ing] to aid and harbor other international terrorist organizations," including anti-United States terrorist organizations.
Iraq paid bounty to families of suicide bombers.
The efforts by the Congress and the President to fight terrorists, and those who aided or harbored them.
The authorization by the Constitution and the Congress for the President to fight anti-United States terrorism.
The governments in Turkey, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia feared Saddam and wanted him removed from power.
Citing the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998, the resolution reiterated that it should be the policy of the United States to remove the Saddam Hussein regime and promote a democratic replacement.
The resolution "supported" and "encouraged" diplomatic efforts by President George W. Bush to "strictly enforce through the U.N. Security Council all relevant Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq" and "obtain prompt and decisive action by the Security Council to ensure that Iraq abandons its strategy of delay, evasion, and noncompliance and promptly and strictly complies with all relevant Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq."
The resolution authorized President Bush to use the Armed Forces of the United States "as he determines to be necessary and appropriate" in order to "defend the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq; and enforce all relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions regarding Iraq."
Introduced in Congress on October 2, 2002, in conjunction with the Administration's proposals,[2][7] H.J.Res. 114 passed the House of Representatives on Thursday afternoon at 3:05 p.m. EDT on October 10, 2002, by a vote of 296-133,[8] and passed the Senate after midnight early Friday morning, at 12:50 a.m. EDT on October 11, 2002, by a vote of 77-23.[9] It was signed into law as Pub.L. 107–243 by President Bush on October 16, 2002.

Very good post. Thank you.
I have even heard Clinton defend the decision Bush on this decision, stating that they all had the same information AT THE TIME and based their decisions on that information.

here's what I KNOW for a fact... many of them... X:
what NTR has posted to me, directly, and to others over these past 9, 10, 11 months is NOT what GR has been posting tese last several days...
AND NTR has NOT disputed the 'meat' of his info. just some of the 'drippings'.lol
I now Rose flat out lied and said she did NOT receive ANY govt check(s) in her RECENT rsponse to my saying "if" she did, etc...
now, if you and Freebie and WA continue to tout NTR's and Rose's character and veracity, what does that say about yours and theirs?
u know what they say about lying down with dogs and fleas??
oh, and IF GR is right on about NTR and Rose, what does that say about his 'dirt' on Freebie, etc..?
quite frankly, any body that suppots O and Co.(including TM) HAS to have their judgement questioned!LOL
or, don't YOU think it 'makes a difference'?:)
Are you mental? Ntr has "disputed" everything gr has said about her a thousand times over. You can only dispute the same lies so many times before it becomes a matter of ignoring an obsessed idiot and his lies.

Ntr has more important things going on in her life than to have to repeatedly defend herself on Topix to a bunch of gossiping ninnies like you, gr, and the rest of your brood.

Get a f'n life already.

So it doesn't matter to you that it is clear this administration intentionally reported Benghazi was not a terrorist attack for weeks when they clearly and obviously knew FROM DAY ONE that it was an attack by a terrorist cell? It was clear, if by no other reason than there is an EMAIL from the beginning from an official stating that it was a terrorist attack.

It doesn't matter to you that your next presidential candidate says it doesn't matter? Not to mention her less-than-presidential behavior to that committee.

It doesn't matter to you that this president and that secretary of state care more about their political campaigns than telling the truth to the American people?

It doesn't matter that there was a stand down order when people were ready to assist?

It doesn't matter to you that we don't know who gave that stand down order?(Hopefully we'll know soon.)

It doesn't matter to you that your mainstream media is spinning this like a top? It doesn't matter that it is OBVIOUS they are helping to sweep this under the rug??

This is now. Let's talk about now. Let's talk about what is important NOW.

Unless, of course, you don't care about honesty and truth NOW.
You cared when Nixon was involved in Watergate -- no one died in Watergate. You cared then, why don't you care now??? Because your media, and the former secretary of state, is telling you it doesn't matter.

Well, they're wrong. It matters to me. It most certainly does matter.

Clinton did defend Bush in this decision. I give him a lot of credit for standing up when he did not have to. At least he is not afraid to be honest.
Anyone can disagree with this all they want, but it is true. He even said he would have made the same decision at the time.

Why are you on the forum "so much"?
I respect Ntr a great deal and just don't like to see people lied
about in general.
Why do you ask such stupid questions? lol
So much as in 24/7.

Respect, more like an obsession.

Lying, because it spoils your image of NTR.

Stupid, how would you know a valid question? Since, you are unable to see what is happening to America.

The government has fed the American citizens a bunch of lies and propaganda. Since, you do not know the difference and follow/obey what ever the government dictates to you speaks volumes about your character.

Some of us have our own mind and can identify propaganda from the truth. You refuse to believe the truth. No matter what the gov. dictates, you will follow like a good little child.

What a vindictive little sock you are. What name did you use to post back then? What a coincidence that a few of you are attacking NTR's character and trying to destroy her reputation all at once. If you had any integrity you'd cite real reasons for disliking her and not make up lies like the others have done.
There's plenty in the news to discuss. Get yourselves back on topic and stop gossiping.
Vindictive...how so?

Real reasons for disliking NTR:

She is condescending.
She is a prevaricator.
She acts superior to others.
She uses the left to pitch her evil agenda...and they obey.
She pretends to care while supporting everything which is evil.
She is a fraud.

Anything else is not important.

Reality reply: In other words, you want me to shut up about NTR. Gossiping, I didn't put the info about NTR for the entire world to see---she did. I just replied to it. Isn't this what forums are, responding to a post?

Shouldn't NTR have stayed on topic and stopped telling her life stories or is this the libs usual response..."that's different?"

I'm not stupid. You assume because I don't quiver at your far right propaganda and media that I'm uninformed or ignorant. Nothing could be further from the truth. Please try to comprehend this. I am fully aware of the current state this country is in. Your constant ranting and regurgitating of extreme right wing rhetoric is just another detriment to the salvation of this country.

Sigh.. your version of the truth has been dismissed countless times. You, much like Gr, throw the word "truth" around every chance you get like it was a trump card but it holds absolutely no meaning because you have never supported your tripe with facts or evidence.

Face it, you might as well just post links to the far right sites that you regurgitate your postings from. There is no difference.
