“The Kenyans are now claiming Obama WAS born in the United States.”

“Kenya as the story goes is one of the islands in the Hawaiian chain. Yep you have to be from Area 51 to believe in that one! Wonder what kind of geography is currently being taught, if at all. Sigh, the American voter is "thick as a brick" (Jethro Tull).”
“I I don't even want to read crap like this. Obama has done more covert damage in office then the previous 10 presidents combined. I wish he would simply resign and go back to teaching law at some grade school in Chicago.”

“They will NEVER take him back NOW!!! After eveything he and Eric Holder have done trying to SKIRT the CONSTITUTION. After putting everything in the governments hands, NOBODY would sign up for his class. Not trying to be rude---its just the TRUTH.”

“I guess you skipped over this part of the story.
"These are not U.S. documents and we have no idea of their authorship or authenticity," a spokesman for the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative said. "Some elements in them are outdated, others totally inaccurate." The spokesman declined to specify which parts were outdated or inaccurate.”

“Combined? no lol. Bush and Reagan have done WAY more, but Obama sure is getting close on their records.”

“And yet they're not even close to the world power they used to be. Bankrupt actually. Doesn't sound healthy to me.”

“I dobut they even want to be a world power and as far as being almost bankrupt, most probably don't lose much sleep over it. What they do want is to be happy,healthy and wise. Something America is not, sad to say.”

“And yet we provide for the security of this country after they did this. We should have said: "Okay, Hiroshima and Nagasaki is all we'll do, surrender and we'll stop then you're on your own."”

“Because we didnt want a WWIII.
The allies demanded unconditional surrender and built new governments in the nations they liberated (well, except the USSR, who invaded and took control of satellites) because they had seen the "diplomacy as usual" end of WWI turn directly into WWII.
Indeed we are still fighting the problems that WWI left behind, with a big chunk of the M.E. problems stemming from dividing the Ottoman empire into colonies for victorious powers.”

“We're not talking just about Walker, the story is about Rodas as well and the typing and testing that need to be done. Another commenter told me it takes 5-6 weeks for the blood tests to come back. That's garbage. It takes 5-6 weeks to complete the results, notify the family and package the deal for public release. There's more to be considered and it has nothing to do with who was driving.”
Patricia013 on Dec 7, 2013 at 10:37:47
“Yes, but the media IS talking about Walker even though its been proven he wasn't driving. That was my point. Well, you tell me how Walker's death as a passenger has anything to do with the person who was driving? This is simply a quest for sensationalism.”
“Now why would one put a "security hold" on the results of an autopsy. Maybe to prevent credibility-damaging information like drug and/or alcohol abuse before the accident?”
Patricia013 on Dec 6, 2013 at 17:07:37
“It was probably put on security hold to keep the sleazeballs from making something of it like they are now trying to make something of the girls he dated. Good grief...he wasn't driving, could have been higher then a kite (but wasn't) and what difference would it make? He WASN'T driving!”

“Did you not read the article to find out why? Your theory is hogwash. If they were on drugs or alcohol, it would, first of all, take 5-6 weeks to find out. They did send the body fluids out to be tested. So, delaying the cause of death by one day would not make a difference in your view of things. Geeze, read the whole story before you start criticizing.”
“Considered a serious crime? I thought it was considered a serious crime before? Poaching has destroyed hundreds of elephants? How about tens of thousand of elephants. Should poachers be killed instead of the elephants. Yes.”
“Probably why Obama is scaling back the drone program. When you have attack vehicles that are deaf, dumb and blind per se civilian casualties are going to be higher. And who cares if they're in secret? It's not like Afghanistan and Pakistan are legitimate friends and allies. I wonder if the reason the U.S. is in Afghanistan in the first place is defense or using it as an offense staging area. Same with Pakistan. Would they give us permission to raid Al Qaeda and the Taliban if we weren't stationed there or nearby?”

“> It's not like Afghanistan and Pakistan are legitimate friends and allies....? According to the US State Departmnet they most certainly are. ”
“My comment had nothing to do with their race. I was talking about other people not caucasian Americans, their nationality means nothing to me. You think our prisons are bad, imagine being in a Mexican, Argentinian, Kenyan, or worst of all CAMP 14 in N. Korea and you'll see the worst prison here is a vacation compared to them. County jail or prison, it's immaterial, they're all rooms with bars. They'd save us a lot of money and probably reduce crime if the NPS directed all it's wardens to direct their prisons the same way Arpaio does. Would you risk life in a prison like that for aggravated assault, murder or rape? Of course not, it's a fate worse then execution. Jail is a "harsh mistress" to use the long-unused term and it should stay that way.”

“Huge difference between jail and prison.
AGAIN, since you ignored it, the "vast majority" of inmates in Arpaio's jail are merely awaiting trial. Remember? "Innocent until proven guilty"?
And, btw, I actually had to google that (make-up of inmates in his jail). I hadn't known how many were actually convicted and serving time versus just awaiting trial.
Even I was surprised that so many were only "awaiting trial".
And, btw, "imprisonment" is their punishment. It's not "imprisonment plus torture". Or, if it is, then at sentencing, the judge should make that a part of the record so that people like Arpaio don't add their own sadistic ideas to the sentence.
Finally, Arpaio LOVES the attention he's getting over all this, and that's why he's doing it. If he was a serious man, really intent on scaring people into not committing crimes, he wouldn't take such obvious enjoyment out of what he's doing and release such statements to the media. It's all a big joke to him.
So, you want to make prison conditions harsher? Okay. But, let's not put one man in charge who gets to dole out punishments on any given day's whim. Who doesn't obviously ask himself what he can do to get the media's attention on a regular basis.”
“You wanna know about Howard Hughes you should get an old movie called "The Amazing Howard Hughes." You know who plays him? Tommy Lee Jones. Jones and Hughes are almost dead-ringers. You can't rent it in a movie rental place anymore, I don't know if it's available through Netflix but it's more then worth the watch.”
“We're talking about convicted felons son that have no rights, it's different for law-abiding citizens who are industrious and work to keep the U.S. where it is. They should have even less rights then they have now. How about taking away phone and visitation privileges or substantially reducing them? The harder it is on them, the better.”

“"In 1997, Amnesty International published a report on Arpaio's jails which found that Tent City is not an "adequate or humane alternative to housing inmates in suitable ... jail facilities."
"Tent City is criticized by groups contending that there are violations of human and constitutional rights.
"Those critical of Arpaio also point out that the VAST MAJORITY of inmates within Tent City HAVE NOT BEEN CONVICTED, rather, they are merely awaiting trial.
It's a county jail. NOT a prison. And, "vast majority" are awaiting trial which means they're NOT "convicted felons".
And, the truth is that you and others, who applaud Arpaio, do so because you believe (rightly or wrongly) that the prisoners are Mexican. And, whether legal or undocumented, you don't give a damn either way. The fact that they're Mexican is why you not only don't care how they're treated, you enjoy the fact that they're treated badly.
And, btw, by your phrasing, it's apparent you're a Republican. So, you one of those "Christian" ones, huh? No doubt.”
“I think DiCaprio is one of the most underrated actors in film. His nuance, preparation and merger into character is amazing and yet he either shuns the spotlight or is simply not brought to everyone's attention. You never see paparazzi following him as well. Sean Penn is another.”
WhiteCloudBIA on Dec 1, 2013 at 08:37:40
“Well I remember Sean Penn from " Colors," and others with Al Pachino, but I'll never forget the first movie I saw him in as a Juvenile in a New York Juve Hall fighting the same guys who messed with his girl? Just like De Caprio had in Hells Kitchen in " Gangs of New York," to Hells Angeles as the " AVIATOR," about Howard Hughes?”
“Black Friday should come to an end. This violence is unacceptable. Black Week would be a better way to deal with the issues by spreading out the melee over a week so that limited numbers of shoppers go each day for better deals.”
“Twenty-five years from now he'll be known as the no-nonsense cop that brought toughness and economics back to the prison system while others liberally coddle, overfeed and underwork their charges. Congratulations to a man like Arpaio and I wish there were more like him.”
