But here goes anyway.
I think the birth certificate argument is a better sell than this one.
I see. So I'm getting about 1-2 letters in the mail right now from ambulance chasers wanting me to go after my former co. dealing with workers comp. Don't even read them, I shred it and trash each one. Some of us are not buying no matter how good the sell. Thankful as usual to not share much of anything with you Mr. Catcher.

Lighten up, Catcher. Haven't YOU ever gotten so exasperated over a situation that you've said things like "Just throw the bums out" or "To heck with 'em all"?

Whats funny is he hangs out on the christian threads and gives them hell for the past atrocities of christianity, and is part of a gang who thinks they will single handedly wipe out christianity, yet here he seems surprised when people are fed up with middle eastern muslims, who still hold on to the mentality of killing the infidels at any extreme.

Ole Chaser is disillusioned I believe. His REAL war is with Radical muslims. Hell even the radicalist christians are beyond just killing at random with suicide bombs, Air planes, shoe bombs, underwear bombs etc., And starting up Rogue armies to kill anyone that gets in their way.

Hey dude.

I am not in a gang.

I have no interest in wipeouts. I am a peace-loving guy.

I am very optimistic about the future.

Life's been good to me so far (Eagles).

Actually, it's a Joe Walsh solo song the Eagles added to their repertoire...

I'm just sayin'...

I've mentioned it to him before, but now that you've mentioned it, I'm sure the buffoon will take notice.

I think most here would disagree with you not being in a gang. Most recall when they all showed up here to disrupt this thread like the children you guys are. your certainly considered a gang by the regulars on the thread you have invaded and are now destroying presently, like you destroyed the Prove theres a god thread.

I'm also hopeful for the future, but with a corrupt government looking out for the big guys at the expense of the little guy, it looks bleak. You know of my experience with lawyers, it doesnt surprise me in the least that Congress is full of them and we are in the situation we are in.

It seems life has been good to you so far Chaser. Just a question for you, have you ever been on the wrong end of a lawsuit? Not much makes me sicker then an overeager lawyer looking for his payday at the expense of someone who just got caught up in the wrong circumstances.

Have a good one..........

I have never been sued, nor have I ever sued a former client.

And that is very rare--disgruntled clients abound.

Who else showed up here?

Ah yes, the **AMERICAN WAY**... Mass murder through (or threat of) nuclear attack.

Incidentally, are you sure it is really "their crap," or is imperial ambitions from other countries (most notably America) that foment tension in the middle east and other resource-rich regions? Lately, it is American "intervention" that has left a trail of failed states across the middle east, Eurasia, and north Africa.

Imperial ambitions?

The last involvement by the United States in anyone's 'imperial ambitions' was aiding the French in their failed attempt to re-establish control of Indochina.

If you're going to talk about the effect of 'imperial ambitions' in middle east, Eurasia, and north Africa, you have to start with the former imperialist powers. Outside of the Philippines between 1900-1946, the United States was NEVER an imperialist power.

{You can make a semi-plausible case that the United States behaved in an imperialist manner (what Kwame Nkrumah called neo-colonialism) in this hemisphere until sometime in the middle of the 20th century, but that's still 60 years past - and not in the same neighborhood you're attempting to blame on the United States.)

Perhaps, being technical, it's not imperialism.

How about "policeman of the world"?

"Policeman" suggests law enforcement (and at its best peace-keeper). But as Martin Luther King Jr observed back in 1967 -- and its only gotten worse in the intervening years --
... the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today [is] my own government.
And then he was assassinated (see King Family v. Loyd Jowers and co-conspirators for more on that...)

The distinction between imperialism and U.S. involvement in the Northern Africa/Middle East/Asia is by no means merely technical.

The case for the U.S. as a neo-colonial power can only be made until the middle of the last century, a decade or more before (as far as I know) the phrase was coined.

Since that time, have we gotten ourselves involved in places we shouldn't have, backed people no better than the ones we opposed, ally ourselves with some very contemptible critters who marketed themselves as anti-Communists (and occasionally as Christian), sometimes created problems as big as the ones we thought we were going to solve, failed to follow up once a short term (and short sighted) objective was achieved?

Of course to all of those.

I don't have a problem with the U.S. picking (and fighting) its battles better, but I don't think blanket opposition to U.S. involvement anywhere makes any more sense than blanket support of U.S. involvement anywhere.

France was the identified location of the poster I originally replied to, and France was the colonial power of record for large sections of the geographic area the poster claimed were problematic because of U.S. "imperialism". The U.S. may not have behaved in an altruistic manner in those countries since the end of WWII (or 1956, depending on when you want to start the counter), but a great many of the problems of those areas have their roots in the colonial past.

I never would suggest isolationism.

But we often mess where we shouldn't, and everyone pays a huge price.

The price includes a very poor image in the rest of the world.

I'm not surprised the two recent posters criticizing our foreign policy, are foreign.

(Can't wait to face Lyndi's outrage at my unpatriotic, uninformed, socialistic, newcomer-without-full-rights post. But first will come her minions--just watch.)

As I said, I'm aware it's not a popular position. I'm also aware that carrying out said threat would be counter-productive. In fact, a lot of the folks doing the 'fomenting' over there, have agendas which have also precluded our 'nuking the lot of them'. I'm just really sick and tired of being held hostage, simply because they have resources the biggest kids on the block are interested in, to a bunch of squabblers who don't want to share the sandbox, with the kids next door

The world is not a rose garden.

But we're all here at the same time, and we should do our best to share it, doing the least harm possible.
