“I saw herds of elephants[ six on each side ] playing soccer in Chiang Mai Thailand ten years ago . I also saw the elephant that paints intricate flowers with it's trunk and a tiny brush , now that was truly amazing . One of those paintings sold for a million dollars .”

“Guess we know who's the smarter beast, and it ain't the art collector.”
“It is very unfortunate that our government doesn't give a damn about our troops or it's citizens. This is clearly evidenced by the fact that they are continuing this unholy ongoing war crime that is Iraq/Afghanistan . What is the evidence that Afghanistan was involved in 911 [ it is well established that Iraq was not involved nor were they threatening us.] ?. Right . KSM admitted it after being tortured a hundred and eighty three times that we know of . This man was not tortured to extract information he was tortured to extract a confession and an excuse to continue what we were already doing . We need there oil to feed our war machine and we will steal it like common thugs and murder there women and children with out remorse . Are you proud because you're on the side that's wining ? You might want to rethink that . P.S. Yes I do believe 9/11 was an inside job , the proof is overwhelming anyone with an inquisitive nature should not have trouble finding the truth .”

“fanned for speaking the obvious and uncomfortable truth that so many on both the left and right do not have the courage to consider. It is pretty obvious what is going on. We are fighting two resource wars with two countries that we gave countless milllions of dollars of arms to under Reagan. And PNAC got their "New Pearl Harbor". And to think some people in the MIC were worried about what would happen after the threat of Communism collapsed.”
“How do lieing dirtbags like this keep getting elected? Oh right , corporate money trumps public will and doing what is right for the people . I've seen this movie before . We need campaign finance reform yesterday.”
“It was the demolitions that turned computers and everything else into micro dust. All the steel witch conveniently fell in forty foot sections was immediately shipped to China to be melted down and Bush decried that there should be no investigation since he had already figured out that it was seventeen muslims with box cutters . The Binladen family who had been meeting with Bush sr were then flown out of the country while all other flights were grounded . Wake the ef up people .”

“I also believe that the buildings had some help coming down...but let's not get bogged down in that, because that's what they want...they want us to go on about the buildings coming down while forgetting about the other still unanswered stuff - like :
- What was "the orders" that 'some unnamed staffer' (the one who was counting down the miles before the impact of Flight 77) had to ask Cheney whether they still stood? It seems to me that a shoot down-order would be rather obvious ; only an unusual order , like DON'T shoot down Flight 77, would require an "Are you SURE....?".
- Was Flight 93 shot down?
- The worst attack in American history-no investigation?
- Why didn't Bush and Cheney want ANY RECORD WHATSOEVER TO EXIST of what they said before the 9/11 Commission? Why did they refuse to be placed under oath?
- What are the odds of a hijacked plane crashing into the one SECTION of one SIDE of a gigantic, five-sided building that was just rebuilt to be able to withstand the impact?
- Why didn't we hear any more about the reconstruction of the Pentagon? PS : Contrary to what Bill Maher and a few others like to say, I don't think Bush had a detonator in his hands - I believe that he was in Florida at that kiddie photo-op to STAY OUT OF THE WAY...”

“Like the moon hoax, the JFK thingy and then this mess - I don't know anyone who believes the
official version. Any time something is not right, they come up with conspiracy theories, etc.
If it was true, no one would question it!”
“I geuss if I got put on paid leave every time I did something criminal or immoral I would feel like I had free riegn to do anything I want . If I knew I could go out and beat the crap out of people I don't like for whatever reason and my compadres would always have my back and swear on a bible just how outstanding a person I am even though theres video evidence showing otherwise then I would continue doing what cops always do . How about holding those who take an oath to protect and serve to a higher standard instead of allowing them to turn our great nation into an oppressive police state ? I know it's to mutch to ask that these thugs go to jail for there crimes but do we have to give them paid vacation?”

“That's great . Now we just need them to apologize to every American and the whole rest of the planet , especially Iraq and Afghanistan . Obama should also apologize for continuing there wars for profit and not holding them accountable for there crimes against humanity . Afghanistan is a just war because KSM confessed to 911 after being waterboarded 183 times ? Is that really all we've got ? How about giveing Cheney a simple polygraph and see what we come up with .”
“That's what makes us better than repugs . We don't just walk in lockstep behind the most disasterous president in history . Yes , I'm talking about Cheney and his trained monkey George Bush . I know the repugs will never be in power again because there legacy is is so horrible that they can't lie and spin there way out of it , but they still have the power to annoy . I have to admit though , I spend alot more time laughing at them then being annoyed by them. There in a hole and they just keep digging . It really is funny .”
“I'm glad to see the words 'centrist dems' in parenthesis because these guys are nothing more than shils of the health insurance crime syndicate who have been ripping off Americans for to long . To put profits above the health of patients is beyond disgracful , it's criminal and it's immoral . How do these CEOs sleep at night nowing there ill gotten gain comes from the sorry practice of denying healthcare to people who have paid there insurance bills on time for years ? Oh right , on a pile of money . They should be sleeping on hard concrete on there backsides so Bubba doesn't surprise them in the night . These Repuglidems are the worst kind of backstabbers that exist . Yes , they will be voted out of office but they still get to keep there dirty money and get lucrative jobs as lobbyists for there crime boss's . That's America for you.”
“Our government does not work , at least not for the people . Thats the point . If you really believe this will be anything other than a whitewash then I've got a bridge you might be interested in buying . It's very reasonably priced , how mutch money do you have?”
“Hundreds of blatent , traitorous , murderous , unamerican crimes documented by the Bush crime family [ yes , I include 911 on that list ] and no one has been held to account for any of them . Obama has made protecting Bushco his number one priority . If there is any investigation it will only be to whitewash history and make some fools believe that we have justice in America . If Americans really knew what our government has done in our names all of our heads would explode simultaniously . Truth , Justice , in this country ? Not in this lifetime . Has anyone seen an interview with an FDNY firefighter since 911 when dozens of them were filmed saying there were explosives in the towers ? There has not been one, not one . Curious , no .”

“It won't be whitewashed to the world now that we have instantaneous communication. They're fighting yesterday's wars if they think that. We have 157 other signatories to the Convention on Torture Treaty that are watching... AND WAITING. If Barack and Eric don't do something about this pretty shortly, the world WILL.”

“Straight up, gangsta. Barry Hussein will help cover it all up. It's been arranged.”
“That would be a very valid point if you did'nt just make it up . Not only was it not in the MSM but it was not on the Huff post nor did Amy Goodman and Juan gonzales mention it when they covered this story on Democracy Now . You should'nt fabricate news unless you want a job at Faux News.”
“I am a lifelong democrat and proud liberal . On this issue I agree with the white firefighters . The test was stricktly about firefighting knowledge . None of the questions were rascially biased . I understand why at my work we are forced to hire and retain underqualified black workers . Affirmative action . Nobody at my work however , makes life and death dicissions . If you're black , and you're house is on fire , don't you want somebody competant at the helm and not somebody who can't pass a test about fighting fires . I can see a case for black quotas in some police departments but not firefighters . That is of course unless they have a history of not putting out fires in black comunities but I havn't heard anybody make that claim . If all the white firefighters had failed the test there would be no story exept mabee a positive story of triumph . We elected Barrak Obama . Mabee it's time to put rascist hireing practices behind us .”

“have you seen any of the questions on the test....the test was sealed but some questions were leaked and the first thing you notice is that they have nothing to do with knowing how to fight fires”

“The case is over. Five justices appointed by the good old boy club overruled eleven other judges in the lower court decisions. Sotomayor happened to be one of them on one of the panels. This is much ado about nothing. The wingnuts have been plowing through her thirty years of documents and this goofy argument is all they have.
The democrats have the votes. Quit wasting time.”

“If nothing is wrong with the test, and the test were not tampered with, i agree with the Supreme court ruling. But a lot of fire fighters have an advantages because many of them have had family members and friends as firefighters. Its nearly a generational thing.
Example: When i was told in the military they were sending me to machinist training, i thought they meant i would be trained on machine guns. The only thing i knew was picking cotton and mowing lawns. Had no exposure to anything else. Once training began, i scored the highest in the class. All of the white guys already had experience or knew a lot about the trade. I experienced a similar situation with computers training. Even though 3 blacks scored in the top five in computer programing, none of them got jobs. After a year only one of us got a job. But she had to start out as a computer operators, a step down.The whites, even the one at the bottom of the class got jobs right away.
The white fellow scored the highest he should have gotten the job pure and simple. I don't agree with what happened to him. Cases like this are insults to many black people. Get the manuals and study. "We don't want nobody to give us nothing, open up the door and we'll get it ourselves", James Brown".
I agree with the ruling. Blacks have a rougher time getting through the door.”

“The test was NOT, in fact, about fire fighting. It was, in essence, a sort of SAT test, which have been proven to be racially biased many years ago.
What the hell does spelling "distortion" correctly have anything to do with fighting fire/rescuing people?”
