Coupla reasons for my not being behind the counter of late...principle reason being had treatment for my eyes, nothing serious, minor in fact, but essential, so was 'persueded' to give my pc a break!
Glad to be back...:)
Great to have you back but take care of yourself first El

Regardless of who inflicts it.
No one was tortured at Gitmo El. 3 were water boarded but that is not torture. We waterboard our own troops in training so they will know they will not die from it

OMG Denny,

That is a *massive* generalisation (IMO)...

Try to be be fair here -
at LEAST .. that.

Grace so many who have been released and gone back to terrorism. They are prisoners of war. At least they have been given that title. They are not part of a military and fight in no uniform. Only one has been sent to Gitmo. They now die in the field as they fight. We don't capture high value leaders we put a missle from a drone on them and kill them

To those of you who do not know about the abortion doctor on trial. He was charged with the murder of 8 babies who survived the abortion attempt. He has been doing this for years so no tell how many he has killed. When Obama was in his state congress he voted for no attemt to save children who survived an abortion. There has been almost no coverage by the media of this trial. The left has always claimed that late term abortion was very rare. The media is so liberal they just look the other way

If you were an aid worker or soldier and caught by the Taliban and so on,how long do you think your rights would be taken as a non combatant or prisoner of war,you would be shot dead or beheaded and human rights won't even come into .
Agreed probably some might have just got caught up in the situation,but a lot have been released from Gito and straight back into terrorism,so better safe than sorry..
Grace I'm sorry to say but if that cult ever took over how long do you think your freedom of speech as a woman would last,there is no democracy in Islam,it's quite a fascist ideology

K,

I hope you are not offering 'what the Taliban might do-

the live beheading of a person on TV.)

No matter how many examples of

It is wrong to lock up innocents without giving them

Why then is Obama constantly saying>
'Guantanamo needs to be closed down.'

Sweet people like Grace want to overlook that. The left is so into womens rights yet they condone the way women are treated under Islamic rule or at least look the other way. I thought it so ironic when I was going through security at Heathrow. They were all Muslims and patting me down to make sure I wasn't a terrorist. Education has nothing to do with terrorism. Look at the doctors who tried to bomb in England. They were men who grew up in England and yet they wanted to murder innocent people

Grace what makes you think innocent people are locked up in Gitmo? They were capture on the battle field. Interogation looks for people who should be released and they make mistakes by returning those people they have a question about and they return to the battle to kill more innocents

Good morning, Deer Luke ... nice to see you as always ... I've been a little heart-broken, as of late, but I will reveal to you in a PM ... Hope you and Paula are well ... Haven't seen much of either one of you lately but, then again, I haven't been around too much either ...

Grace you need to understand Obama will say anything that is to his political benefit. In his first term he said marriage was between a man and a woman. He said he support gun owners. He said Obama care would make insurance rates drop $2500 and instead they have increase by that amount. Politicians are not born, they are excreted. Obama has been a huge socialist failure. We are seeing his true colors now in his second and last term. We now have 50,000 people on food stamps

We have rain.
Not that it is ground breaking news, but the forecast was we were to have the hottest day of the year today....:( can't believe those weathermen.
I had an exciting e-mail when I got back on Sunday evening, from a lady in Canada whose husband is my second cousin twice removed. Since then,after years of futile searching, I have photographs of my paternal Grandmother, her brother in WW1 uniform, his son, the most fabulous photograph, and am being reunited with living descendants
still in Manchester.
Just thought I would share.
Good morning, Lady El ... I am SO happy that you are reuniting with family in the not to distant future ... that is wonderful! Thank you for sharing with us ... Family is family - 2 legged and/or 4 legged, in my case ... and when it comes right down to it, that's all we've got ... Stevie Ray Vaughan was quoted for saying something like that but it's been said before he came and left this earth ... I know the reunion will be the best of days for you ... Hope you, P and the rest of your family are well and in good spirits ... Much love from this home to yours! FC <3 ...

Obama hasn't changed a thing from Bush's war policy. It is different when you are in office and see what needs to be done to protect America. The truth about Benghazi is starting to come out. They have tried to suppress any of the survivors from telling the truth. The people in the intelligence community lives will be ruined if they come forward but those brave men have already are coming forward. They have identified the group who would have been able to get there in time to support them. Hillery has already been proven to have lied to congress about what she knew and when she new it

My big standard Poodle was so scared when we first got him from his former owners. He would pee in the floor and was so unhappy. Now he loves his home and plays all the time with us and the other dogs. He is a gentle giant who thinks he is a lap dog :)

Grace I do see you as a very sweet woman and I meant no offense by saying that. I am sorry if I offended you, I would never mean to do that. I think most women look at war in a different way than men. We are all subject to getting our information from bias sources.
