Obama On Egypt Crisis: 'We Deplore Violence Against Civilians'

“How many posters here recall that it was the GOP that wanted to stop aid to Egypt following the coup, and that it was the democrats in whole and the president in particular who demanded that it continue. To the point where the president refused to call the overthrow of Morsi a coup. Crickets...”

“How many posters here know we've been bribing the Egyptians and the Israelis for 40...NO, for 60 years ?!?”

“Isn't owning a business and making money the same thing as compensation?”

ArlingtonTxLady on Aug 14, 2013 at 20:32:01

“No, if the business is incorporated it is a stand alone entity, that is the mistake many make when they first open a business, they take money out and out and out, leaving no money for the company to survive on. We take very low salaries, just enough to pay the bills and little left for anything else, putting it all back into the company so that it grows. Just because you own a business and it is making money does not mean that you are making money”

“It is and it isn't ... just depends on what you want the 'statistics' to show ...”

“The better question is why not give that money to these scientists who are in the top 15% of grants. It's either because the lesbian research shows a higher potential for success, or because political correctness is more important than science in this administration, you choose.”

“So 29 billion, up from 20 billion in 2002 is not enough? That is almost a 50% increase from 2002, in a time when we have had a serious recession that we are still recovering from.”

“Apply same facts to Zimmerman case and you would get the same result.

For example: GZ follows TM. TM confronts GZ. GZ goes back to his car, gets his gun, goes back and gets into fight with TM. GZ shoots TM. GZ goes to jail for life.

In the actual case, TM starts fight with GZ. GZ is in fear for life and shoots TM with gun on his person. GZ never had the opportunity to leave after altercation started. Self defense.”

PTerrys on Jul 14, 2013 at 15:08:43

“So, you really believe TM started an altercation? Just because GZ said he did? Even though GZ was stalking him? How do you stalk someone and not be responsible for everything that follows?”

“Please God, tell me the poster above's anonymous pseudonym doesn't indicate he's in the field of LAW. Trayvon wasn't guilty of anything. He's dead and being dead, he wasn't on trial. Second, there is no evidence but that from the INITIATOR of aggression (fact) that Martin assaulted him. Your command of the "facts" is evidence of an absence of critical thinking. Better shore that up before the Bar Exam.”

“But, if you agree it might have been self defense, then you have to agree with the verdict. The state had to disprove self defense beyond a reasonable doubt to get any conviction. They obviously, as I said during the trial, did not.”

“Not even in your dreams. Why? Oh yeah. His parents are not responsible for the assault. In the end GZ killed Trayvon. Regardless of Guilty or NG, he SHOT and Killed TM.”

“ummmm,

since the Martin family were not the ones who allegedly assaulted GZ,

nor are they the ones who charged GZ and put him on trial,

that cannot happen.”

“17 year hiatus in warming which disproves the models, which are based on conjecture, and which are themselves based on suspect temperature readings? Oh wait, there is always a belief in science, even if you have to make up facts, eliminate the medieval warm period or explain away fatal mistakes in models.”
