Westboro is not a church. It consists of 40 members with a hate agenda who seek attention. It is not affiliated with any Baptist denomination.
The Methodist Church, Baptist Church, Reformed Church, and Evangelical Church have issued a joint statement repudiating the actions of Westboro Baptist Church stating that:
"We do not share their hatred of lesbian and gay people. We believe that God loves all, irrespective of sexual orientation, and we unreservedly stand against their message of hate toward those communities. Neither the style nor substance of their preaching expresses the historic, orthodox Christian faith. And we ask that the members of Westboro Baptist Church refrain from stirring up any more homophobic hatred in the UK or elsewhere."
Bill O'Reilly is a frequent critic of Westboro Baptist Church and regularly calls the church "evil and despicable".
Seems everyone knows this. You shouldn't keep giving them so much attention.
I wouldn't let those pigs over the Golden Gate Bridge, unless they wanted help jumping from it. These are the same sick types who harass women at abortion clinics.

So Saddam's history of using WMDs on his enemies post 9/11 wouldn't have given you any reason to think he wouldn't have somehow gotten them into the USA?
He didn't especially like us after the Gulf War if you've forgotten or aren't old enough to remember that war.
You talk about stability under Saddam like he was an ally. He paid families of suicide bombers to kill our allies. Killing Americans post 9/11 was an open window.
Here. Found this ABC article for you.

Saddam was a threat to destabilizing the entire civilized world. Even the UN knew it. Why is that Democrats suddenly got amnesia post 9/11? They knew it too at one time.
I'll answer the question for you. The Democrats suddenly got amnesia because winning at all costs trumps even their own prior convictions about someone like Saddam Hussein.

Saddam didn't have a history of using WMD's on his enemies post 9/11. He used them during the 10 year Iran/Iraq war in the 80's. and here's the kicker, he got those weapons from the Reagan administration

There's an old Middle Eastern saying
THE ENEMY OF MY ENEMY IS MY FRIEND.
Care to guess what it means?

What allies?? Israel??? Please don't make me laugh. Do allies purposely attack unarmed U.S. naval vessels with the orders there be no survivors.
Do allies shoot up our wounded?
Do Allies steal our most sensitive USBN fleet secrets and sell them to the Soviet Union?

Questions for you,
Was the Middle East more stabile when Saddam ran Iraq than it is now?
Was Iran more powerful, and a regional super power During Saddam's days as head of Iraq?
When did Iran restart its nuclear program, before or after Saddam's rule?
When did al Qaeda enter Iraq, before or after Saddam?

President George H.W. Bush knew the Middle East was more stabile with Saddam in charge of Iraq, which is why he left him in power after Gulf War I.

Saddam was a paper tiger, and many realized that.

Excellent observation. Neither of the boy losers have even mentioned the death. When it is politically expedient to talk about death their comments will be directed at a situation where a black is killed by police when caught committing a crime. The death was a tragedy but so was the death of an American serviceman.
Peace
I don't suppose that Mr. hypocrite two faced liar would care to explain how many funerals Bush attended, hell the public was forbidden to even take pictures of the flag draped coffins as they came back from Iraq. As we used to say when asked where we wanted to come back to the USA we would always say, "Anywhere but Dover".

Who is arguing there is NO White Progressives. Obama wouldn't be POTUS is there wasn't white voters wanting to support the Welfare state.
pretty sure most of those folks on the 'draw' voted for Mitt.

If we think of states as voters -- and they are in presidential elections due to the Electoral College -- then the Moocher Myth is backward. Starting with the 2000 election, the states that have benefited the most from federal spending have voted Republican. Those that pay the most in taxes per dollar received in spending vote Democrat. This paradox occurs even controlling for a state’s per-capita income, total population, racial composition, education level and defense spending.

At the county level, the Moocher Myth is more intriguing. The Census Bureau counts federal dollars in five broad categories: retirement and disability payments, salaries and wages, procurement contracts, grants, and other direct payments. In 2004 -- the last year the Tax Foundation calculated the tax burden per county -- the counties that received the most per person in retirement or grants had higher vote margins for Democrat John Kerry.

But the counties that received the highest per-capita spending in the category “other direct payments” voted for George W. Bush.“Other direct payments” includes Medicaid, food stamps, crop subsidies, housing assistance and many other programs that people generally think of as “welfare.”

This president's interpretation of an "ongoing investigation" means: "Until the media sweeps it under the rug and everyone forgets about it."
And until there's another scandal and another ongoing investigation....it's kind of a pattern now.
We've become numb with scandals and ongoing investigations.
Think that might be intentional? By the propagandists and the power elite?
One of the Rules for Radicals is to "overwhelm the system" using corruption as the means by which to do it. Maybe overwhelming the populace with corruption is included in that rule.

Resurrecting Apartheid: White Police and Politicians are Waging War on Black America

Is it really a stretch to call it apartheid, even as one after another after another after another black male (roughly one every 28 hours)— and more than a few black women and girls — are gunned down by police or vigilantes in city after city and town after town, unarmed, or armed only with an air rifle in a Wal-Mart? And this, even as white men can point their guns at federal officials or parade around the streets, or in Target or churches or Chipotle, or bars (because guns around booze is always a great idea) or anywhere they damned well please with weapons — real ones, with bullets — and be left to see another day? Or in some cases even lauded as heroes and the new “freedom riders,” standing up for their constitutional rights?

Two faced hypocrite say what???
At Neel’s trial, police detective John Ianachione testified that the Secret Service told local police to confine “people that were there making a statement pretty much against the president and his views” in a so-called free speech area. Paul Wolf, one of the top officials in the Allegheny County Police Department, told Salon that the Secret Service “come in and do a site survey, and say,‘Here’s a place where the people can be, and we’d like to have any protesters put in a place that is able to be secured.’” Pennsylvania district judge Shirley Rowe Trkula threw out the disorderly conduct charge against Neel, declaring,“I believe this is America. Whatever happened to ‘I don’t agree with you, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it’?”Similar suppressions have occurred during Bush visits to Florida. A recent St. Petersburg Times editorial noted,“At a Bush rally at Legends Field in 2001, three demonstrators—two of whom were grandmothers—were arrested for holding up small handwritten protest signs outside the designated zone. And last year, seven protesters were arrested when Bush came to a rally at the USF Sun Dome. They had refused to be cordoned off into a protest zone hundreds of yards from the entrance to the Dome.” One of the arrested protesters was a 62-year-old man holding up a sign,“War is good business. Invest your sons.” The seven were charged with trespassing,“obstructing without violence and disorderly conduct.”
Police have repressed protesters during several Bush visits to the St. Louis area as well. When Bush visited on Jan. 22, 2003, 150 people carrying signs were shunted far away from the main action and effectively quarantined. Denise Lieberman of the ACLU of Eastern Missouri commented,“No one could see them from the street. In addition, the media were not allowed to talk to them. The police would not allow any media inside the protest area and wouldn’t allow any of the protesters out of the protest zone to talk to the media.” When Bush stopped by a Boeing plant to talk to workers, Christine Mains and her five-year-old daughter disobeyed orders to move to a small protest area far from the action. Police arrested Mains and took her and her crying daughter away in separate squad cars.
The Justice Department is now prosecuting Brett Bursey, who was arrested for holding a “No War for Oil” sign at a Bush visit to Columbia, S.C. Local police, acting under Secret Service orders, established a “free speech zone” half a mile from where Bush would speak. Bursey was standing amid hundreds of people carrying signs praising the president. Police told Bursey to remove himself to the “free speech zon
Remember these incidents well. Gunner is a moron ex cop who probably brutalized many in his town. I think that all police cars should have dashboard cameras and go pros; that way there is no cause for speculation and the cops can't lie.
