Pakistan Seizes Drugs Worth At Least $30 Million

Pakistan Seizes Drugs Worth At Least $30 Million

“Is this supposed to make us think that "The War On Drugs" is working?

Note: When the Taliban controlled Afghanistan there was NO OPIUM on the country. (As the Taliban are STRONGLY against the use of opium) As soon as the U.S. drove out the Taliban at the end of 2001, opium production returned, and has been a "problem" ever since.

Note 2: Karzai's brother is reported to be the biggest or, second biggest, opium dealer IN THE WORLD! Do you think there is any connection between the U.S. ouster of the Taliban and the return of the opium trade? Just sayin'.”

“I'll bet that Edward Snowden will be staying in Russia for a long time. All the diplomatic haggling that's going on between all the different governments will dissuade the granting to Snowden permanent diplomatic asylum.

As all the full ramifications of what Snowden did reaches the far corners of the world, it will be increasing harder for Snowden to find asylum in any of the countries that have offered it to him.”

“Oh Harry, there you go again; pretending to believe the Republicans.

How many times did you "promise" to vote down the 60 vote filibuster rule before the 2010 election? Was it, three times. Yeah, it WAS three times. So, what did you do when you had the chance (at the opening session of the new Congress, where a simple majority vote would have removed it), you "choked" and caved in to the "wolves" (the Republicans and Lobbyists), to ensure that everything stayed the same.

Don't worry people, your government is in "good hands" - the Lobbyists!”

“It seems, by the way you talk, you are speaking of yourself, and not me. You don't know what I have experienced in my 70 years on planet Earth. I have already cried out to Christ, God, and everything that is Holy, many times - and still do. So you obviously, don't know what you are talking about.

You speak as though you know me. You don't. And, the way you sound, you don't even know the Bible. The dead Mafios types have had their chance. Did you know that, to join the Mafia you have to swear an oath. And, that oath is NOT to God. It's an ungodly, Satanic oath of death. They worship at the Altar of Greed, Murder, and Death - the direct antithesis of what God stands for.

And no, I am NOT strong, powerful, in a worldly sense. But, I am strong in the Spirit. That's why I speak with such conviction. I know the works of the RCC. It is, and always has been an evil institution. Read its' history. This 7 minute video will give you a brief overview. Check out the other videos. If you are a seeker of Truth, they should be an eye-opener. I pray, for your sake, that they are. This may be your moment for the "scales" to fall from your eyes. Take heed.

“First; Pope Francis reminds me of comedian Stan Laurel, of "Laurel and Hardy" fame.

Second; Aside from all the smiles; platitudes; sweet talk about the "Brotherhood of Man"; saying the poor should be helped; speaking against greed; and the latest, telling the Mafia to "Convert Your Hearts" (btw Francis, there is no such thing as the Mafia. Source: the Mafia).

And finally, Pope Francis has not said a word about priestly sodemy with Altar Boys and money laundering charges directed at the Vatican Bank;

“Thank you! - for stating the TRUTH! Everything you say is absolutely true. It's just that, because of the Roman Catholic Church's teachings, no one, but people who actually STUDY the Bible, know the difference.

For the last two thousand years Rome has done its' best to pervert the Bible and the teachings of the Messiah. ALL their teachings have been to direct everyone to the belief that the CHURCH is supreme - and not God, the Father. As Jesus said, when asked by the disciples, "teach us how to pray", Jesus said to: Pray to OUR Father, not YOUR Father. Even Jesus knew his place in the order of things. But, the Pope and the RC priests like to call themselves "Father", an absolute blasphemy.

P.S. Remember the Inquisition, the Crusades, the selling of Indulgences, sodomy of Altar Boys by RC priests. etc.”

“NO! The Roman Catholic Church preached "salvation by works", until Martin Luther started preaching, "The just shall live by faith" - something he picked up by reading the Scriptures.
Habakkuk 2:4; Rom. 1:17; Gal. 3:11; Heb. 10:38.

Gal. 3:11 "But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith".

“So, are you saying, a new Pope means we have a "New" God? And, people are being "saved" in spite of what they do? Well, what the new Pope is saying goes contrary to the Bible.

Maybe Catholics should start reading their Bible to find out what their God REALLY has to say about true Salvation - not the counterfeit "Salvation" that the Roman Catholic church has been preaching for the last two thousand years!”

“Yeah, but Al is smart enough to get a "pre-nup"...if the relationship ever gets that far.
But, since Al is a confirmed bachelor, I think the only rich person in this picture is, and always will be, Al. He's too smart to get caught in a scheme like that - especially at his age, nearly 73.

P.S. The Huff-Post writer added: "The only thing is, it appeared the Argentinian actress was the one escorting Pacino out of the eatery -- not vice versa".

“Hollywood, and the RCC have created a fictionalized version of the New Testament. The typical Christmas stories are full of errors - when you compare them to the N. T. - you just have to know what to look for - but, that will take a lot of work.

If you please, let me give you a few clues as to where they (Hollywood and the RCC) are wrong.

When the "wise men" (actually astrologers) came to see the Messiah, they said they "followed his Star" to Herod. It was really an angel (messenger) sent by God. Stars don't move across the sky and then stop over the "HOUSE" where the Messiah was living. The "wise men" didn't stop at the manger, but went to Herod first in JERUSALEM, to tell him about the "star" they were following. Then, after visiting the Messiah in BETHLEHEM, fearing for their lives (because of Herod), the "wise men" took a different route and returned to whence they came. Herod (fearing the Messiah would be a threat to his throne), killed all children two years and under. Incidentally, some say the "wise men" came as far as 1,500 miles away to see the Christ child. So, how long do you think their trek took?

That's just ONE of the "mistakes" the RCC and Hollywood has made and will continue to make because of "tradition". You know, they don't want to upset the "apple cart". It would be bad for BUSINESS! You know, BUSINESS as”

“Which "historical records" are you referring to?
There are no "historical records" of Adam and Eve, Cain and Able, Seth, the land of Nod", etc. or, any of the Patriarchs before Abraham's father. In fact, there are NO "historical records" (that I know of) before the Sumerian Empire. So, what do you mean by saying, "the historical record - not the Bible - shows it"? If you are including "cave art" as part of the historical record, then, that doesn't count because, there is no reference to any civilization - just pictures. Seriously, where can I find these "records".”

Peach Pickle on Mar 2, 2013 at 03:11:23

“Do you know that there are many civilizations that have no written records for their complete history? What they do have is a tribal historian whose task it is to memorize by rote the tribe's history. There are still such people in Native America, Africa and Asia. Those people don't have written records so does that mean their history is not true? I think that is what happened before Moses took on the task of documenting the history of the Hebrews. He wrote down the rote memorization of the tribal historian. The same can be said of most civilizations. Where are the historical documents for the Saxons after the Romans left Britian and before Alfred the Great?
Plus think on this: just because a story has no historical document does not mean it is not true. Remember Alex Haley? He had one side of a story without historical documents. He had the story of Kunta Kinte and how he was kidnapped in the forest while cutting down a tree to use to make a drum. When he went to Africa and tracked down his ancestral home the first thing he did was talk to the tribal historian and the historian recited by rote the history of the tribe. When he said "Kunte Kinte went into the forest to cut down a tree to make a drum and was never seen again" Haley found the missing piece to his story.”
