the 40 percent murder rate....
“The number of murders increased 40% during [2001 - 2006], a fact that might be related to the trafficking activity.”
Eurostat’s ‘Statistics in Focus’ provides the data on homicides for most European countries. Examining this data reveals the homicide rate in Portugal has increased from 105 to 148 per 100,000 population – a 41 per cent increase. The general trend across most of the other European countries is a decline in homicide, except in Ireland, Cyprus, Luxembourg, Sweden and Scotland.
However, the definition of homicide provided by the data is:“defined as intentional killing of a person, including murder, manslaughter, euthanasia and infanticide.” There is no mention of drugs as a cause or involvement in the deaths. The only evidence comes from the UNODC’s mention of “might be related to the trafficking activity”. However this is hardly a solid foundation for assuming the murders are drug-related.

one down.
yeah none of the O'bama son's murder each other in Chicago because of drugs either. One down. Of course what difference does it make if a black face kills a black face, they were inspiring dancers-they were good boys. Just like the black faced girl--Hadiya Pendleton that the O'bamas used. She was hanging out with GDs when she was killed-but of course her being black and all the O'bama's used her as an example. Ever wonder why all the black faces go on TV and cry and let the media cover their grief?

A study conducted by the Harris Organization for the Veterans Administration and released in 1980, an ABC-Washington Post poll released in 1985 and the National Vietnam Veterans Readjustment Study of the Research Triangle Institute agree that the majority of Vietnam veterans entered the military by enlistment. The readjustment study found that approximately 70 percent of Vietnam veterans enlisted, only 11 percent of whom reported they did so to "avoid the draft."

Vietnam veterans are still at war, with media figures who deny our patriotism and disparage our service by characterizing us as dummies too maladroit to have wrangled deferments. When questioned if they would serve again if asked, the majority of Vietnam veterans replied they would.

We Vietnam veterans are a group about whom a tremendous amount of nonsense has been said and written, and we must be on our guard against members of the media who need to validate their conduct during the war by casting discredit upon those who served. BERNARD A. HEENEY Bayonne, N.J., June 13, 1994

Well, believe it or not, they issued draft cards before the first draw. I know that seems like quite a bit of advanced planning, when compared to today's government, but that's the way it was.
Give it up. You have been proven to be a fraud. The issuing of a draft card had absolutely nothing to do with when someone's number was up.

FACT: There was no such thing as a "low number" prior to 1969. All men 18 1/2 through 25 years old, were classified 1-A and were drafted oldest first unless they had a deferment. Just because someone had a draft card didn't mean they knew when they would be drafted. They just sat in limbo during the entire time they were within the draft-eligible age group.(Although certainly, if you couldn't afford college it was a good bet you'd end up in the military.)

I can remember protests against the draft in 1965 when the number to be drafted was increased from about 3,000 a month to 33,000 a month but no one had any idea when they would receive an induction notice. It was the luck of the draw.

After 1969, the draft was based on the draw of birth dates:

December 1, 1969, "366 blue plastic capsules containing birth dates were placed in a large glass jar and drawn by hand to assign order-of-call numbers to all men within the 18-26 age range specified in Selective Service law.

With radio, film and TV coverage, the capsules were drawn from the jar, opened, and the dates inside posted in order. The first capsule - drawn by Congressman Alexander Pirine (R-NY) of the House Armed Services Committee - contained the date September 14, so all men born on September 14 in any year between 1944 and 1950 were assigned lottery number 1. The drawing continued until all days of the year had been matched to lottery numbers."

We had to register for the draft by our 18th birthday. That's when you got your selective service number and lottery number. I turned 18 in April of '68 and enlisted before the end of the year.
Nope. That's not the way it worked. There were no "lottery numbers" prior to December, 1969. NONE. You are a liar.

crying white face.

Dunn showed no emotion as the verdicts were read. But afterwards, he turned to his lawyer, Cory Strolla, and asked, "How is this happening?"

"Obviously, my client is devastated at the outcome. Never saw it coming one bit,"

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/201...

and didn't FOX use Zimmerman in their race baiting campaign? or most any white guy who beat the overwhelming odds of being killed by another white guy? though i can never tell which FOX likes the most; the killers or the killed.

What's devious? Posting under unregistered screen names? If you think that is so underhanded, why do you do it? The poster is skillful not necessarily "devious".

Hi USA ... I caught part of that interview and agree.
What business is it of Romney's. What's he concerned Russia's Opening Ceremony out did his. I thought it was a beautiful ceremony.
And it's been a very well done Olympics. The Athletes don't seem to be complaining.
Like he even knows what poverty is ...

Jealousy & Hatred ...

Yep, same nonsense on this thread. Hatred, hostility, mean spiritedness, ugly, nasty people.

Nope ... Nothing's changed. It's getting worse. I stayed gone for 6 months ... Another 6,months, a year, for good !?!..;-)

Glad I got to say Hello to you.

Take Care ...

Well, I skipped over about 1,000 posts but I can tell by skimming that nothing has changed. Conservatives are still brain dead.

I listened to Romney on Meet The Press this morning. What a crank.

He criticized Russia for spending $50 billion dollars on the Olympics. Claiming that most of that money could be spent fighting poverty and disease (like he cares about poverty and disease). He's just a typical Republican who parrots conservative media.
