A great leader this John. F. Kennedy, listen to his Berlin Speech, a great communicator. Some one with vision.

Is it not sad that we have JFK and GWB the great with same titles. Ex-Presidents of USA?

So a rightie or two decided to dish out some "what for" on Patriot's Day in Boston, home of the start of the American Revolution? Do I sense a white supremacist, Christian-identity, abortion-hating, gay-hating, and Olympics-in-Atlanta bombing Eric Robert Rudolph? I think I do. I believe I am willing to, here and now, speculate that the probable individual behind the Boston Marathon Bombing is a right-wing kook and fanatic, just like Rudolph. Actually, probably also very similar to the right-wing federal-building bomber Timothy McVeigh.
I will speculate further that the bomber is probably upset with (a) potential gun control legislation; (b) US tax policy; (c) legalization of gay marriage; (d) or all of the above.
Is this easy or what? Almost certainly the bomber voted for Romney, so he might also be a racist Obama hater. We know he is a Republican. Who else would blow up Boston on Patriot Day?
Your logic is not so bad!

Since its beginning the US has started wars at any times. Silly, to speak of this country of pride! The US is a barbaric nation!

Remember USA is "only" 225 years old!!
And while most nations have stopped wars, it is "Lone" USA which is fighting non stop.
So there must be some thing special about USA. What is it?
The US is the most imperial nation, ruled by a handful of billionairs in the atomic age. There is a very good chance for this country to erase the whole human race. Hiroshima and Nagasaki was just the beginning, Fukushima the continuation!

The rich need our help! "Only Little People Pay Taxes: Why a janitor ends up with a higher tax rate than a millionaire." The superrich don't pay as much as they used to—and thanks to a combination of tax cuts and preferential tax policies; their tax obligations are far less demanding than the so-called little people's. In fact, the very wealthiest Americans' tax burden has been steadily dropping for years, even as they've enjoyed astounding income growth not seen by the vast majority of Americans.
Tax rates for the wealthy have fallen substantially since they peaked in the 1940s. During the past 30 years, they have been cut at a much faster rate than middle- and low-income taxpayers'. Much of the money "earned" by the super rich is paid under along-term capital gains tax, which is considerably less than any high income tax bracket. That's what makes Mitt Romney's tax rate so low, along with offshore bank accounts and other tax evasion schemes that can be perfectly legal.

If there was no God who is watching every one could think that any nation would become so powerful that it would "destroy" all human race from this planet.

People plan and people think that they have power and they can do it, but they will be unable to do it.

The human life on this planet will come to an end, when the time which God has allotted for it is over and every human shall be called to give account of his or her life to their Creator.

Many Powerful nations have passed away before USA and many might come in future.

But in our lives, no doubt USA has become most powerful nation. We are happy for their success and hope they use it carefully.

It was bad enough that the U.S. Senate could not bring itself to ban assault weapons or high-capacity ammunition magazines. But its unwillingness to approve even the most fundamental gun control measure — extending background checks to gun shows and online sales — is beyond outrageous. Really now?! Can’t we all agree that felons and people with serious mental illnesses should not have easy access to firearms? Apparently not.

Why is the NRA opposed to a global fire arms-trade treaty?
Why is the NRA opposed to add a chemical signature to explosives so it can be traced?(TERRORISM PREVENTION ACT, Senate - April 16, 1996 opposed by republicans)
Why is the NRA opposed to universal background checks?
Why is the NRA opposed to banning the use of highly toxic lead ammunition, the trophy killing of rare and threatened species, the opening of national parks to sport hunting, and cruel practices such as bear baiting, seal clubbing and captive or “canned” hunts?
Why can’t NRA members take a stand against their, clearly, misguided organization?

20 years ago the government developed a way to mark explosives to help trace terrorist bombs. But republicans and the NRA blocked the research, even after a test of the device helped catch a bomber in Baltimore.

Who told you Muslims are angels? Or Islam is what any Muslim says or does?
Islam is what is told by Quran and sayings and actions of our Prophet.
A Muslim is one who follows what is told by Quran and Prophet, not the other way round.\
So instead of wasting your time and energy, in telling what some or more Muslims are doing, you should try to learn what Quran says and what are teachings of our prophet.
In this way, you will learn about Islam and its teachings and shall tell that what this Muslim did or that Muslim said was against Islam.
That is yours and people like you's basic problem.
You judge Islam by the actions of people having Muslim sounding names, while it should be otherwise.
If some Muslim drinks Alcohol or commits adultery or deals in usury, these actions would not become Islamic, but this man is doing Non Islamic acts.
If you work on these lines, you would find out many things which present day Muslims do, which are exactly opposite to what Islam teaches.
You should criticize these Muslims and not Islam and I shall be with you.

Shame on Jewish Democrats

Op-ed: Republican senators were the only ones who passionately grilled Hagel on his lack of support for Israel

By Shoula Romano Horing (Contd.)

Despite the fact that 69% of the Jews voted for Obama and donated heavily to the Democratic Party, the Republican senators were the only ones who passionately grilled and interrogated Hagel on his lack of support for Israel, while all the Democratic senators tried to cover up this fact.

Hagel was confronted by several Republicans for refusing to sign congressional letters seeking a terrorist designation for the militant Islamist group Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards. The ranking Republican senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma reminded the committee that in 2000 an overwhelming majority of senators sent a letter he sponsored to President Clinton reaffirming their solidarity with Israel during Arafat's terror campaign and Hagel was one of just four who refused to sign the letter. Senator Graham, referring to the letter, told Hagel "the lack of signature by you run chills down my spine."

A month before his death, Ed Koch, the former mayor of NY, told the Algemeiner Journal that he hoped that Democrats in Congress will oppose Hagel's appointment, saying "if Hagel is not confirmed it'll be because the Republicans take him on and a few good Democrats."

But in reality not even one Democrat was good enough to join the Republicans, including the eleven Jewish Senators.

Many leading Jewish Democratic senators and congressmen who are known to be pro-Israel were in a rush to publicly endorse Hagel weeks in advance of the hearing. The leading Jewish Senator Schumer from NY needed only 90 minutes of conversation with Hagel to come out in support of him and to encourage his Senate colleagues to also support him. Senators Boxer, Feinstein, and Congresswoman Wasserman, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, stated that even though they were concerned with his comments about the "Jewish lobby" and his voting record, they accepted Hagel's regrets and apologies and his verbal reassurances about supporting Israel and facing Iran.

Purim is coming soon and we will read the Book of Esther. After Queen Esther told Mordechai, her uncle, that she cannot go to the king and plead with him to save the Jewish people because she worried about her own self survival, Mordechai relayed to Esther the following words: "Do not think that you will escape the fate of all the Jews by being in the king's palace. For if you will remain silent at this time, relief and salvation will come to the Jews from another source, and you and the house of your father will be lost. And who knows if it is not for just such a time that you reached this royal position."

I hope the Jewish senators, congressmen and other influential Jews who serve in Obama's administration remember these words before it is too late.
