“We need to start publicizing the Tea Parties for what they are: KOCH BROTHERS CREATIONS.

KOCH BROTHERS should be on placards surrounding all Tea Party functions. We need to educate the public that Tea Party stands for Big Oil Koch Brothers.”

“I like the Koch Brothers, besides liberals noone knows who they are but the more I hear about them here the more I like em.”

“Be Laden announced he wanted to retake Cordoba in Spain, reestablish a new Islamic headquarters there, and rule the world. Cordoba has a deep meaning for some of those people.”

“I watch Univision to keep my Spanish current. The news broadcasts are excellent. The remaining programs give us a lot of insight into the Latin culture in the Americas.”

“Univision is primarily about big boobs and cheap laughs. I wish there were more choices for Spanish-language TV, because all that's available now is the lowest common denominator.”

hecman on Sep 10, 2010 at 13:09:07

“If you really want to learn about the Latin American culture the last place you will find it is on Univision. If you want to see a real cultural program you watch canal once not Univision or Telemundo.”

“They are very good and were CHRONICALLY underfunded and abused by "mother Marine Corps" for decades until 9/11 .

I remember getting a brief from Force Recon's recruiters where they confirmed that between 1989-1996, 10% of Special Forces teams were made up of former Marines, mostly Recon and Force Recon. It still took a terrorist attack and 5 years for the Marine Corps to admit why that was. Greener Pastures!”

“It is his kind of thinking that drove me from the Christian churches of the Deep South. These are people with weak minds who can only use hate and fear to get to other people. Today I am a total non-believer who wants nothing to do with them. Their way of thinking is madness.

The people who continue in this man's church are just as irresponsible.”

“the shackles of religious dogma have been pushed back where they belong - into the past.

Good comment. But, like most addicts, the religionists will continue their addictions as much as possible. I guess the only thing to do is for non-believers to avoid them (almost impossible) or never give them the opportunity to appear as if they had any credibility. I have a feeling that 200 years from now, there will be people standing on the corner waving their flags of dogma and asking us all to take a "leap of faith" over the walls of science and reason.”

“The geese are fed very little human food. Most of their food consists of weed seeds and insects and worms.”

“Not in Toronto. People purchase a bag of bread scraps for the express purpose of feeding waterfowl along the shoreline and in parks where there are rivers, creeks and streams. I recall seeing a family of humans feeding some ducks bread in a park just metres from a sign posting fines for feeding the animals.”

“I note you feature the Canadian Goose for this article. Here in S.C., in the heart of my city, we have small lakes and streams throughout. The Canadians and Mallards have taken over the town. Each week I have to stop my car to allow a momma goose and her goslings to cross the road to the lake. They crap all over our lawns and streets. On my golf course, they leave little bundles of goose love we golfers have learned to putt around. And, they honk and fight and play. What should we do with them? NOTHING! We love our honkers. The children love to see them cross our cemetaries searching for weed seeks and insects. They clean our golf courses of harmful bugs. They add to the richness of our neighborhoods. They are treasures.”

trainer3 on Sep 7, 2010 at 11:08:32

“People are Canadian. A Canada Goose is a Canada goose. Or 2, or 16 on my lawn.
Darn Canadians should learn to train their migratory fowl. "How to behave in America". Many have decided Canada isn't 'where it's at', as the kids say. Just like Michael J Fox and Peter Jennings.”

“You should understand "You can count on Joe." His real name is Addison Wilson. He uses "Joe" as a campaign name because it makes him sound like one of the boys. He is a two-bit mommies boy who got a direct commission in the reserve because he had a law degree. Then, he tried to become a real man by associating with regular military. Joe is a punk. He is Strom Thurmond's lap dog. He is a racist. When he learned that news of Strom's black daughter became public, he had a conniptions fit. He tried to cover it up.

He is what he is. A punk little lawyer with a limited intelligence.”

“It is time for the USA to totally withdraw all support for the state of Israel.

Most of us American have been patient with them, but enough is enough. We have other things to do with our money and our diplomacy.”

““Actually we have a vested business and technology interest in supporting Israel
The UN puts them at the top 20 technological innovating nations in the world:
http://unpan1.un.org/intradoc/groups/public/documents/apcity/unpan014340.pdf

They have made significant technological contributions and thousands of useful patents (more than the total for entire 57 Islamic nations - OIC)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Science_an­d_technolo­gy_in_Isra­el

They invest 5% of their GDP in R&D, 3/4 of that is from and for civilian use (The $3Bil we give them to buy US hardware cannot be used for R&D)
http://ec.europa.eu/invest-in-research/pdf/download_en/psi_countr­yprofile_i­srael.pdf

They have managed to make trees sequester more Co2 than US or European forests on only 10% of the rainfall giving us a small pilot on how to help get some of that Co2 back into new trees
http://www.springerlink.com/content/b60w6776591up715/

We support them because:
A) They are Westerners like us
B) We make money out of technological R&D development and business interests there
C) We both endlessly watch Friends and Seinfeld re-runs.
D) Everyone else there hates our guts regardless
E) As long as they are winning hundreds of Palestinians will die. If they move to losing millions of them will be slaughtered by the Arabs and we don't want that.”

“Remember McCain's great ploy: when he fails, he has his ghost writers glorify the failure in a book. When his contract fails, he will blame everybody but himself.

I wouldn't let him write a contact on toilet paper to gain entrance to a toilet stall.”

ToniQ on Sep 8, 2010 at 06:25:33

“"contract on a toilet paper..." that was rather severe Whitley.

It was rather sad to watch as McCain sold out America to garner the presidential vote, politics and polls won out over values.

There was one redeeming moment when he corrected the confused scared believer, "...no, he is not an Arab, he is an American."”
