As dean of Yale Law School, Harold Hongju Koh was among the fiercest critics of President George W.

The bias "kiss Obama's butt" media and Hollywood have given Obama a 100% free pass on what they tore Bush to shreds over and I say this having voted for Obama ,as do not agree with GOP policies and living in Florida find the Tea party just a disaster.

HOWEVER I find Obama resembles Bush when it comes to war, Patriot act and few other things.

Hypocrite media is the problem and I guess Republicans are correct when they scream about media bias.

The bias BS which FOX is as far as kissing GOP butt the rest of the media is to the left as far as kissing Obama's butt.

The last election was two piles of crap Obama and Romney ,who ran against each other.

People voted on who they thought smelled the least bad but I think we had the two single worse candidates in decades .
It reminded me of Hialeah elections where you lose regardless.

I will also pray for you ,as a greater hypocrite who is as far removed from God as a Demon is impossible to find.

You are damned because actions speak louder than words, You are not fooling anyone, certainly not fooling God.

I shall pray the true prayer on your behalf.

Satanic Communism? China, Viet Nam, Cuba, Korea. What's satanic about these countries? They all operate under a Socialist (Communist) System. Right now they are doing much better than your so-called,'DEMOCRATIC' system, and will soon own all of your major assets.
Just because people choose to live under a different system, doesn't mean they are wrong, but, that they choose another system, which works quite well for them. I know you will have trouble wrapping your (non-flexible) brain around this fact, but, that's the way it is.

Doc Proper who claims to be a doctor among other lies is the type of American who screams about other countries trying to get nuke reactors for energy while ignoring that the ONLY country to ever drop nukes on innocent civilians , children, pregnant women,elderly,etc is USA.
USA did this to show Russia what we had and would use.

"The REAL Reason America Used Nuclear Weapons Against Japan (It Was Not To End the War Or Save Lives)"

The most illuminating perspective, however, comes from top World War II American military leaders. The conventional wisdom that the atomic bomb saved a million lives is so widespread that Ö most Americans havenít paused to ponder something rather striking to anyone seriously concerned with the issue: Not only did most top U.S. military leaders think the bombings were unnecessary and unjustified, many were morally offended by what they regarded as the unnecessary destruction of Japanese cities and what were essentially noncombat populations. Moreover, they spoke about it quite openly and publicly.

CONSERVATIVE

Not in the numbers that correspond with the welfare and entitlement rolls we are funding
today, and that does NOT include all the illegals! If anything it is American culture and American way of life that is under attack. The bigotry and prejudice is FROM those who are supposed to be advocating for the poor and downtrodden. Liberalism under the guise of "helping" has in fact done more to hinder the progress of the less fortunate than advance them. Why? Because if there is no one to "help" there is no reason for THEM! Liberalism constantly stirs the pot of racism and bigotry in order to justify their existence. Liberalism looks at us from the standpoint of color, gender, nationality, etc. Always dividing us into groups. Not from the standpoint that we are ALL Americans. Liberalism does NOT believe that the individual is capable of providing for himself and be self reliant. Conservatism on the other hand looks at ALL of us as Americans and believes in the individual and their God given ability to provide for themselves through self reliance. That is when left to their own devices. Free of gov't interference and oppressive taxation can and will provide for themselves and their families. We did it LONG before liberalism started to convince us we couldn't! Ask those that lived through the REAL DEPRESSION! I know because everyone I've talked to, and there are fewer and fewer every year, told me there was a time when you were looked down upon if you took gov't handouts. People were proud and believed in THEMSELVES, and they survived! Liberalism steals the individualís sense of self worth and dignity. Liberalism has one believe the ONLY answer is gov't. That gov't is the answer to all their woes. Liberalism is socialism and socialism is predicated on everyone being a loser!
