Cluck, Cluck, Clueless Obama

You COULD do some research. The bill was called the "Agreement Between the United States of America and the Republic of Iraq On the Withdrawal of United States Forces from Iraq and the Organization of Their Activities during Their Temporary Presence in Iraq". Bush signed it in 2008. Oh here...you can read it over: http://www.state.g ov/documents/organ ization/122074.pdf  (Nov 27, 2015 | post #10)

Your punk cousin who talked about joining the Marines but instead opted for Emory and the Young Republicans will float this one to seem like he’s providing historical context. It goes something like this: By cutting and running from Iraq, Obama created a power vacuum that allowed ISIS to emerge. There’s only one problem: it’s almost entirely bullshit. While it’s true the CIA and America’s Gulf allies helped fuel radicalism in Syria by arming and funding some sketchy anti-Assad forces over the years, the 2011 pullout of Iraq has nothing to do with the rise of ISIS. The rise of ISIS in Iraq is the product of a number of factors which can all be traced back to the initial invasion in 2003. Obama was simply carrying out Bush’s exit plan, which the Republic of Iraq and the United States—two sovereign nations—signed in good faith in 2008, before Obama was elected. Indeed, Obama’s Secretary of Defense at the time of the pullout, Leon Panetta, attempted to leave behind American troops, but the Iraqi congress refused to grant them immunity, in part due to popular outrage over Chelsea Manning’s Wikileaks disclosures that revealed abuses by American contractors. Immunity for American military and private contractors is a dealbreaker; Obama wasn’t going to subject American men and women to foreign laws, so he didn’t have much of a choice. Bush, and Iraqi popular will, tied his hands long before he set foot in the White House. Bottom line: If Obama wanted to maintain troops beyond the 2011 deadline, the U.S. would have had to effectively re-invade Iraq and violate whatever remained of international law after the Bush shitshow. This would have snuffed out any legitimacy the Iraqi government had left and no doubt fueled terrorism far worse than what we eventually saw."  (Nov 26, 2015 | post #8)

We Won

a) I think you're confusing the Mormons with the gays b) I see no reason that gay divorce would be less than heterosexual divorce c) "Teacher,” they said, “Moses told us that if a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and raise up offspring for him. Now there were seven brothers among us. The first one married and died, and since he had no children, he left his wife to his brother. The same thing happened to the second and third brother, right on down to the seventh. Finally, the woman died. Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her?” (Matthew 22:24-28).  (Jul 1, 2015 | post #110)

Boycott Gay Businesses in Indy

Interesting. All the complaining and bitching about everyone and about not having anything in Independence, and here you want to go out of your way to find a business to boycott. This is why we can't have nice things.  (Jun 30, 2015 | post #21)

2 More Years of Obummer

You can't believe that people would notice that it's working? When insurance companies were dropping people when they got sick, women were being denied insurance because of a cyst or irregular pap smears, children were being denied insurance because of pre-existing conditions? One good medical issue can send a family into bankruptcy. And you can bitch and complain all you want - but it would be nice if you lifted your head out of the muck to notice the good this President has done. Keep voting backwards - your children will be smarter. They're probably already figuring out how to ditch you in the cheapest nursing home possible. It's amazing watching you people babble and spew nonsense. Go educate yourselves. Perhaps you should dial up the BBC on the internet and read some actual news.  (Feb 6, 2015 | post #41)

This was well-written and accurate. Unfortunately it's also wasted here. These are the people that consistently vote against themselves. They've been taught keywords like "liberal " and "progressive " and trained in what the right defines as "patriotic ". They've been taught that education is "elite". They don't care that the country is doing so much better under Obama. They ignore it when the GOP votes down jobs bills, votes against money for veterans, or votes strictly for the wealthy people that bought them. They are allowing their children to be raised for an uneducated work force.  (Jan 26, 2015 | post #27)

Why did you idiots vote for Brownback again?

Hilarious. You're a complete moron. They feed you shit and you ask for more. You keep voting against yourself and then you whine because things don't go your way. The stock market is booming, the gas prices are plummeting, unemployment is dropping - we're pulling out of the housing bubble that was handcrafted by your party. There weren't any weapons of mass destruction...why don't you give back that 2 TRILLION dollars we wasted on that affair? Go back to your pathetic little life and search for someone else to blame your life on. HEY! The GOP are attaching social security today. Thanks, Obama. Again, you're a moron.  (Jan 7, 2015 | post #5)

laurel street bakery

You people are amazing. Dumb as shit, but amazing. These girls have worked so hard to make this business thrive...and their product is fantastic. But as usual you keep searching and searching for something to run down. It's always fascinating when poor white trash has the opportunity to speak out in anonymity. You're why Independence can't have nice things.  (Dec 18, 2014 | post #59)

worst news a parent can get

I think now, after reading this entire thread, it should be apparent that having a gay child should really be considered the least of your worries or complaints.  (Dec 4, 2014 | post #52)
