“That's why all the most progressive nations on earth are also the most advanced, with the highest standards of living. What do they all have in common? A successful combination of socialism and capitalism.”

“HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

In all of history, no government became more honest, less corrupt, or granted its citizens more rights as it grew in size. E.L. 2011”

“I have lived and traveled in some of the poorest cities on earth and I can tell you that similar living conditions exist right here in the USA in places like Detroit, Camden, East St. Louis, Atlantic City and elsewhere.”

“Yes, Falk is American. He is also Jewish. So he can't be anti-Semitic. He is what apologists for Israel's crimes against humanity refer to as a "self-hating Jew."”

“America supports terrorists around the world and harbors them here at home. Orlando Bosch, who masterminded the terror bombing of a civilian airliner, resulting in the deaths of 73 innocent people, has a street named after him in Miami, a city which also celebrated "Orlando Bosch Day." That's just one of many, many examples. Also, let us not forget who funded, armed and encouraged many of the Islamic jihadists-- including a young Osama bin Laden-- who later turned their wrath against us.”

“Bravo, Rachel. With more than 10,000 homeless people (a very conservative estimate) here on the streets of San Francisco, increasingly Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans too, most people around here just want to pretend there's not a problem. They'll step right over them to go into their favorite boutique store and ignore their outstretched hands on their way out. Every block seems to have homeless inhabitants-- my block had Tony, who always seemed just one step away from getting off the streets. I've often wondered what can be done for these people but I always come up empty. Just like our city planners. The best I can say is what we should NOT do, and those seem to be exactly the things that cities are doing, including, often "compassionate" San Francisco.”
