You won't hear about this in the mainstream media. Probably because the mainstream media is paid by all the politicians (that's republicans AND democrats) to focus on superfluous issues.

"Freedom, socialism, and unity".... Muammar Gaddafi, 1969. Can someone explain to me again why we removed this stark raving mad hero of the Libyan people for over four decades? I'm just not getting it.

"The decision by Mrs. Clinton was based in part on the recent cooperation of the group, in completing a move of more than 3,000 of its members from its longtime location in Iraq, Camp Ashraf, said two officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity in advance of an official announcement."

Are we referring to aerial bombing as "humanitarian effort" now?

I don't know; it's appears as posted as another "convert" project. There are so many opposing factions in the upper echelons it's just ridiculous. I mean you have Obama whom I see as basically as an anti-imperialist; you have the Clintons, chasing the money [anywhere] at all costs; you have staunch Republicans saying America the Superpower 'till the end of time; the Zionists... and then you have 300 mil. Americans sitting back saying, WTF? There is nothing of a coherent nature here that any of us can relate to.

Except that nations such as China and South Korea, and various other Third World nations, who have embraced our model are growing at fantastic rate.

[-] 1 points by thoreau42 (595) 1 year ago

Yeah, I can tell you why. Because he gave up his nuclear weapons. We don't steal resources from countries with nuclear weapons, or bully them around, which is why Iran wants them, and why we don't want them to get them.

[-] 2 points by TechJunkie (3029) from Miami Beach, FL 1 year ago

Somebody took it way beyond even that. Look down at the bottom where one of the Obamabots is accusing all Libertarians of being part of a vast conspiracy orchestrated by the Koch brothers, which of course invalidates all Libertarian ideas. Including the article that you posted, which he didn't even read.

He managed to combine two logical fallacies into one fascinating ball of judgement error. He took "Hasty Generalization" and combined it with "Ad Hominem" in a way that almost borders on performance art.

Fuck the Kochs. Also I am not a libertarian.

[-] 3 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

I refuse to support people working for wars, insanely high prison populations, spying on Americans, and those working with the banks and the kochs.

If they fall into any category listed above... they will never have my support. I've put my foot down.

You can vote for more indefinite detention laws, bombs, Goldman Sachs, spying on Americans, drugs laws, insanely high prison populations, etc... you can do that if you want to.

Just don't expect me to vote for someone that supports laws that put people like me in prison.

FRAUD you are.

Go back to your John Birch site, I'm sure they have a heavily monitored forum, just for you.

[-] 3 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

Man, your memory sucks. Start takin the seeds out of that shit dude. Here we go again-

Creationsim vs evolution is something that will have very little effect on anyone's life. How we got here was somthing to worry about centuries ago. Continually lowering the quality of education is the real issue here, of which neither party has the balls to do what is needed.

Your voter purge is going to affect a very very small percentage of people. Forcing people to register, and not allowing felons to vote are 1000's of times more suppressive, which both parties back.

The abortion issue- its a supreme court decision. The states can tinker with it all they want, they will never get it overturned. This issue should be a none issue. The Republicans keep fucking with it because they are morons.

So while the entire nation goes down the toilet at warp speed due to both parties endorsing fascist policy, we should focus on some states messing with abortion legislation?

[-] 1 points by shooz (26733) 1 year ago

Teaching creationism will have no effect??

You lose. It will.

Two separate issues and the voter purges WILL have an effect, there is no doubt. You should have actually read the MANY posts on the subject.

Plus it's based on a fallacy perpetrated by the (R)epelican'ts.

I thought you didn't like that sort of thing?

States rights bullshit, eh? I wonder what "party" is pushing that as an excuse? hint, hint, It's 2 parties, both of whom Ron Paul ascribes to.

So yeah, while your going on pointless repetitive rants about how the 99% are asses, this stuff is having an affect on REAL peoples everyday lives.....This very instant.............

[-] 3 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

The Masses Are Asses? You didnt like that thread? You dont like saying that people have to be insane to endorse this current system?

Want to tone it down a bit? Perhaps we should go with The Masses Are Not Doing Enough. Would that make you happy?

You certainly are obsessed with that link I posted. Its a sad little life you live, to grab ahold of something so silly and minor, and use such hatred with it.

A fraud is someone who voted for more war, but says they are antiwar. Thats you, shoozer.

[-] 2 points by thoreau42 (595) 1 year ago

Obama has murdered more people than all other Nobel Peace Prize winners, combined. That makes him the best, right???

You find insulting the 99% inconsequential?

I don't.

You want to change that title after the fact?

That too would be a fraud, and it wouldn't change the body of your message of hate.

You won't be spinning it back on me.

You like to call the 99% sheep too.

That term is something of a Beckism, a term used often by the "right"

How sensitive of you.

How insightful.

[-] 2 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

There's differences, its just that the level of screwing you get from each one is so large, its meaningless.

Their main goal is a different marketing message, to keep people who arent really that politically savy in the fold. People like you.

[-] 2 points by shooz (26733) 1 year ago

So please tell me.

What, if you are correct, does the "marketing" of creationism have to do with it?

How does the "marketing" of voter purges fit in?

How about the 900+ bills written by "one side" that limit womens rights?

I know I've asked you this before, but you have never addressed it in the least.

Indeed, it usually resulted in you calling me names.

[-] 2 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

Your obsession is clearly to obstruct change. Why else would you make the connection that someone who posted a link from a facebook posting was a "Bircher" whatever the hell that is.

See this is the problem with you Shooz- you just dont get it. You think that you can repeat a lie enough times, it will become truth. That works on a lot of people, but not all. I bet you used to be a politician didnt you?

You must be a real joy to live with. Assuming this and that till you are blue in the face. Making shit up. And absolutely ZERO of your own credentials to give any of validity.

[-] 2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

No dude. It's Beckism Teabagge(R)ism. The tribe has spoken.

If you don't 100% love Obama and you think anything he does is wrong in anyway that means you are the same as Glenn Beck and the Kochs. Did you not get the memo?

Obama had a gun pointed at him when the repubs forced him to vote YES on the Patriot Act and FISA amendments Act. Didn't you see the photographic proof? The repubs forced him to vote YES on the TARP bailouts too. They forced him to drops all those bombs in all those countries too. Gun point dude. Photographic proof.

It suits you just fine.

So now calling the people "sheep" is something of the right too eh? You manage to put a label on everything, very telling of your baseline of reasoning.

Label and marginalize, just like the media did to us. People who think like you do are never leaders of change. They pretend to be cheerleaders, but even that is usually questionable.

[-] -2 points by shooz (26733) 1 year ago

So for you that's not labeling.

Calling teabagge(R)s, teabagge(R)s, is the thing that counts as labeling.

You're so full shit.

[-] 0 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

Yes, those things you mentioned are having an effect. The depression that everyone is currently living in from bipartisan legislation is having a much, much greater one. The innocent lives lost in the wars dwarfs these things you list. The manipulation of food prices dwarfs these things. People losing their ability to provide for their family dwarfs these things.

Making registration part of the deal, and not allowing felons to vote dwarfs the current purge. Its a tidal wave. You lose.

I think the Republicans need to just leave the abortion issue alone. It is a great wedge issue though, great at keeping the public divided.

Only a fool couldnt see that. Are you a fool? Are you one of the asses? That think for some reason if you cling to a dream long enough it may become true some day?

I say your repubs because you always leave out anything negative about the repubs and now you are pushing some fact from the past as a truth in the present when it ain't!.

[+] -4 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Oops we have now left your inaccurate goldman sachs contribution attack and gone to your old chestnut war monger.

Republicans created the fear mongering 11 years ago when they exploited the 9/11 attacks. They continue that effort, by pressuring Obama (who continues to successfully resist) to invade Iran. They have begun the war mongering attack that Pres Obama is weak on terrorism/defense.

The republicans are the fear mongering/war mongering party. Pres Obama still stands against them. You never criticize the real enemies of peace and constitution freedom because you are a partisan republican.

I am against the drone bombings, and the constitutional violations that Pres Obama has failed to end.

Pres Obama WILL end these things. The war mongering repubs will expand them.

[-] 3 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

How many countries do you have to bomb and surround with warships before you're a warmonger?

Is it 8 countries? Because this president has bombed 5 outside of Iraq and has warships playing war games in the Straight of Hormuz preparing for a war with Iran.

again I must point out Romney and Obama agree about a military option still being possible against Iran.

A dominant political ideology in Australia is actually the Third Way, which is a rejection of your obsession with the left/right dichotomy. You definitely could learn a few things from Australians.

I notice that you're still not talking about the MeK. You're totally preoccupied with your fight against your Satan (Republicans) that you still don't have any idea what the original article was about. A lot of people didn't read that article just like you didn't. But most people who didn't read it did not feel compelled to comment on it. You did. Even though you didn't read it. You dismissed it without reading it because your prejudices won't even allow you to glance at it. That's really sad, that such a closed-minded person would go around waving the "liberal" and "progressive" flags.

The zombie apocalypse is already here. shooz is in the vanguard. But don't worry, they're easily distracted by television screens and shiny objects, and they're usually so fat, out of shape, and unable to focus that escaping won't be a problem. The only real problem is that THEY'RE EVERYWHERE!

If Australia allows real access to 3rd parties I certainly support their approach here.

I am familiar with their mandatory voting for all eligible citizens. We most definitely will benefit from that! I think the 1% fear that the most.

How do you feel about mandatory voting for all eligible citizens?

I'm personally not generally in favor of mandatory anything for citizens, but it does seem to have a positive effect in countries that work that way.

What does this have to do with the MeK?

Obviously nothing.

My Australia comment was in response to your Australia comment.

I didn't ask what your Australia comment had to do with MeK! I rather discuss the issue.

In regards to MeK: From what I've heard, including the article in this post they appear to be a shady extremist Iranian group that certain western groups use to further their devious goals in Iran at least, and maybe beyond. I do not support removing them from the naughty list, And I suspect the change is related to military escalation/saber rattling going on over Iran.

Ok?

So your against removing MeK fr the naughty list.? And do you have any opinion on my comments regarding Mek?

You still keep leaving off the libe(R)tarians.

You really think they have no say.

You ignore their roots and realities.

I don't live in a box. I live in the World.

The "duality" is just another BIG big lie.

"Their roots"? This I have to hear. Please tell me your conspiracy theory that explains why libertarians are evil.

The Koch brothers ties to modern libe(R)tarianism are legion and legendary. as well as their ties to the teabagge(R)s.

You can deny it if you like, but that will only demonstrate your lack of knowledge..

Here's one guys take, since you hate Aussies as well as Americans.

It's truly fascinating how you think that everybody who is not a Democrat is part of the vast, Koch-brothers conspiracy.

Naw. Just the easily led libe(R)tarians.

They couldn't even keep the truth off of wiki.

You see, it's not a theory, no matter how hard you try and think it is..

One thing is clear, they are not here in support.

Here's an example of an early post from our new literary genius.

That's a weird post. He is obnoxious.

[-] 1 points by shooz (26733) 1 year ago

Isn't he though?

Clever with words. Likely still in college.

There's a lot of cracks in his premisses, but he is quick with the spackle.

Meth?
