“Huffington Post and this article has been read by citizens of countries all over the world. If you ever wonder why people on this planet have a dislike for the stars and stripes, just look at some of the comments from our LEADERS. "There's no national interest, is there oil over there we are going after? I don't think there is." Can't you just stop with no national interest!?! Well, if maybe there was oil we were going to steal, I'd be ok with it. Imagine if other nations were discussing whether to bomb us or not, and some of their reasons not to included, they don't have enough natural resources to plunder. And I agree with him, we shouldn't do it. But we could have a little more class when discussing it.”
“Even on the brink of war, all we want to do is finger point and blame each other. We are going to War. We, all of us. Not just the liberals. Not just the conservatives. All of us will feel this. The gas prices. Our families and friends put in harm's way. Who knows how far it goes, maybe we feel it here at home like the countries we bomb feel it. We need to wake up and grow up. We are lining up to battle Russia, Iran, China. Not Iraq, Libya and some mountain goat herders with guns and IEDs.”
"Don't cross that red line"
"You are either with us, or against us
If you see a difference in these, you're exactly where they want you to be. Pick a side, because they are both the same!!! Don't you get it? Both sides of the aisle aren't nearly as different as our arguments are. They don't fight like we do on comment boards. Because they really don't care. If Obama wasn't president, we would be either in Syria and/or Iran, and you people commenting about how stupid Obama is, what be saying how stupid and wimpy democrats are. And college kids would be marching in the street about how awful war. If Palin was a Democrat, you people who laugh when she cracks a joke, would be the first to rip her to shreds if she was a California liberal.
Instead, both sides just take their rightful, predictable place on every issue. You don't care if you change your opinion on an issue, as long as you don't change teams. It's become so pathetic and Syria has shined a bright light on it. So go ahead, pick a side. But don't be surprised when nothing changes.”
“Although the situation in Syria is unfortunate, it has exposed Americans for what they are, political cheerleaders for their favorite team.
Conservatives haven't wasted a second to pounce on Obama for speaking about airstrikes. These same people most likely voted for McCain, a man who would have had boots on the ground in Syria AND Iran months, if not years ago. Remember his cute song, Bomb Iran? Or Romney, who wouldn't have hesitated to approve airstrikes.
On the flip side, had Bush, McCain or Romney approved airstrikes against Syria, the streets of every major city in this country would be filled with liberals holding signs and chanting lame sayings in disapproval of another war. Whether this happens is yet to be seen, but the liberal silence on this topic is deafening. I thought y'all hated war? Where are you?
It doesn't matter who is the President anymore. 40% of you are going to love him, 40% of you are going to hate him and the rest of us are going to think 80% of this country are suckers who think every issue is red or blue.”

“We are so desperate to be labeled SOMETHING, regardless of what it is. All my facebook friends have posted this with the, YES, This is me!!!! Ok, you are an introvert. And a conservative. And a buddhist. And a mom. And a student. I get it.
How about just be you and don't worry about the titles and labels.
Oh, and after reading this, I can relate to 4 on the list so I guess I'm an introvert too!!!”

“Given that introversion has specific physiological and psychological traits (IE they process stimulation in a completely different part of the brain) it's a bit more than just a label. Someone not realizing that they are an introvert, because our extroverted society is pretty hard on them, will likely experience emotional and psychological distress because they don't know how to care for themselves. Imagine the distress of a person who didn't know they had a minor glutton intolerance, they aren't going to know how not to feel bad until they are taught that they should avoid glutton.”

“It's not just a label, it's a psychological term. Jung was into this as a way of understanding how various people react to various stimuli and situations. I find understanding more about introverts helps me interact more successfully with them. Introverts should work to also understand what makes extroverts tick.”

“Lol, guess it has something to do with the never ending treasure hunt mentality of folks "finding" themselves. A label that attached to a person is like finding a clue, maybe, to "finding" themselves, hence the happiness at finding that next clue. Some people like their labels, others, not so much. Faved, OYL.”
“He wrote he hoped Anne Frank would have been a fan of his music. Call in the drones!!! It wasn't a brilliant move, but neither is the continuing ridicule of a 19 year old who does nothing wrong but put his foot in his mouth sometimes. Look at the comments on here, I think it says more about us than it does him. Spoiled brat, a disgrace, a waste of oxygen?! Really, and Justin has issues? You were so offended by him writing this, you took the time out of your day to write a comment about how he's an idiot? How does that make you better than him? Forget Justin, we need to get over OURSELVES. Justin followed his dreams, is working the job he's always wanted, ultra successful and has fans, regardless of age, all around the world. You think because you are one of the 100 million who graduated college in this country, you are more educated and better than him, and it's simply not true. He can always go back and get his education, he has enough money for the rest of his life. Do you? Justin played the game and won. He's not a genius and screws up, pretty normal for his age. I'm sure you did to, but nobody knows or cares, because you are irrelevant.”

“His comment was offensive and he is old enough to know better. Stop making excuses for him and turning this onto those justifiably outraged at his extreme narcissism. I haven't called him an idiot because he didn't graduate college. You don't have to be one to have respect for Anne Frank. I read her diary when I was 12. Did he just view this as another photo opportunity without looking at anything in the museum at all other than her name and age? You don't have to be a college grad to read and take on board information displayed in a museum, you just need to be massively less self-obsessed than him.”
“Yes! It's about time! I've been wondering where the christian right has been on this. They've remained relatively quiet, or maybe the people who speak out for gay marriage get all the headlines. A sweet storm is brewing.”

“I'm sorry. The christian right has been silent? Silent? Really? I guess you haven't been paying any attention at all. I've never heard so much hand wringing, shrill and vile commentary coming from the right in all my life since the last presidential election.
I guess you are already living in that bubble you have carefully built. All of the discord within the republican party is a result of the party trying to mitigate the endless flow of horribly homophobic, anti-immigrant and racist rhetoric flowing from the right wing. It's been a never ending parade of disaster, and quite entertaining. I hope it never stops. I have rarely in my life enjoyed listening to the tears of the fallen as much as the last few months.”

“You are absolutely right. The republicans should keep the same values they have had for the last several years. Of course, the majority of the country doesn't agree with those values and are moving further away from the right every day. The right will probably win very few elections, but at least they didn't bend to the will of the people. Besides that, if they do change to suit the majority of the people, the christian right will leave the republicans in droves and vote for..........for.........Who will the christian right vote for if not republicans?”
“I liked how Snooki looked before! It's not just her weight people are talking about, she just looks fake. If I asked, quick think of someone healthy, I just have my doubts Snookie comes to mind. And I think Kim looks great. Spare me the berating mothers, that has zilch to do with it. Quit trying to be an internet hero.”
“You are comparing yourself to Snookie. Look at her again. She doesn't look healthy. And as far as tearing people down, that's just what people do now.”

“do you know how short that woman is? she is 4 ft 8 in. a healthy weight for a woman her height is around 85-100 lbs. i believe. i see no rib cage, no protruding hip bones. have you ever known someone with an eating disorder? have you ever seen someone who STARVES themselves? they do not look like that. they look sick, she does not look sickly. it's ridiculously insulting to those with an actual problem to just go throwing the term around whenever someone loses weight. "that's just what people do now" it looks like you found the perfect place to join the rest of the invalids on the internet complacent with berating mothers. there's a few articles on here about kim k. as well, have fun!!”
