“And in Mexico tens of thousands died depsite a gun ban in that country. You're right though, I'll bet North Korea has the lowest % of guns in private hands and probably zero deaths from privately owned guns - maybe you'd better move there to be safe ; ) I hear they've got some nice feeding camps set up to help their citizens - maybe even free health care.”

“Good argument, tell that the parents of the 20 children who got slaughtered. All you were saying is what your screen name says. No substance at all.”
“Since when do "journalists" make such sweeping unsupported claims. Jefferson for example was NEVER proven to have had a "38 year affair". It was proven through genetics that someone from the Jefferson family (many think his nephew) fathered one of Sally Heming's children. Sally's other children were proven not to be related to any Jefferson. So this article contains outright lies. This smear campaign against Jefferson btw is something that has come about in recent years as his opposition to Central Banking has been publicized. Don't criticize the banks or the press will simply lie about you. Too bad HP is now just publishing the same junk and lies as the rest of the Murdock media cartel.”

“NOT TRUE!!!!! SALLY'S OTHER CHILDREN WERE NEVER EVER PROVEN NOT TO BE RELATED TO JEFFERSON EVER! FIRST OF YOU COULD NOT PROVE IT! THE DNA TESTING COULD ONLY BE CARRIED OUT IN A DIRECT MALE LINE DESCENDANT AND THAT WAS ONLY POSSIBLE WITH SALLY'S YOUNGEST SON. HER OTHER CHILDREN 'S DESCENDANTS INVOLVED DAUGHTERS! IT MUST BE DONE THRU THE Y CHROMOSONE WHICH THE JEFFERSON CHROMOSOME WAS PARTICULARLY DISTINCTIVE, IF YOU ARE REFERRINGB TO SOME OF JEFFERSON'S FAMILY'S CLAIMS THAT THE CARR BROTHERS WHO WERE JEFFERSON'S SISTER'S CHILDREN THAT WAS DISPROVEN GENETICALLY AT THE SAME TIME AS THE JEFFERSON CONNECTION. WHILE IT'S TECHNICALLY TRUE YOU CAN'T NAME JEFFERSON DIRECTLY ONLY A JEFFERSON THERE IS MUCH CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE THAT JEFFERSON WAS INDEED THE FATHER. FOR ONE THING HE WAS ALWAYS PRESENT AT MONTICELLO AT THE CONCEPTIONS. HE GET A DETAILED JOURNAL ATTESTING TO THIS FACT. IT ALWAYS AMUSES ME HOW THE FOUNDERS, GREAT MEN THO THEY WERE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO HAVE ANY OF THE FOIBLES OF THE REST OF US. ONE SCHOLAR AGAINST THIS NEWS SAID WHEN JEFFERSON;S DAUGHTER DIED HE WOULDN'T HAVE GONE TO SALLY FOR COMFORT. I SAY HE WOULD BECAUSE AFFECTION IS COMFORTING FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE.”

“blablablaaaaa --- You're absolutely correct! What's interesting is that Thomas Jefferson's profligate nephew was in the same place as Sally Hemmings 9 month prior to her giving birth. The British laboratory which tested "Jefferson" DNA did not have Thomas Jefferson's DNA ..... and even mentioned that in their report.
The media ignored that part of the report and continued to spread lies about one of our most celebrated Founding Fathers.”
“Reminds me of the joke: A Texan says, "I caught a 12 inch fish." A Yankee says, "That's nothing I caught a 16 inch fish just yesterday." The Texan says, "I don't know about you, but in Texas we measure our fish between the eyes."”
“This is a ridiculous article. Nobody pays prices that high traveling to these places - unless you are clueless or don't care about costs. IDK if the author is an idiot or if this is a piece to convince Amurkans to stay home.”
“Wow, I'm amazed to see such a well informed comment. Too bad people actually have to search alternative media to find the truth as you have. Huffpost and the rest of the sold out monopolized mainstream media will never report these facts, but at least for now there is comment section where people can learn a bit.”
“I call BS. So the guy who is barely alive and probably incoherent is able to remember how long he was trapped there? Plus all you have to do is roll down or smash a window and dig your way to the surface in a day or so. People have dug out of cabins buried in a compacted avalanche, loose snow would be nothing. Plus it is the middle of the winter - why did the neighbor find him now and not in spring - must not have been any significant snow covering the car. He was probably just a hungry homeless guy and somebody sensationalized the story.
Then again what do I expect from the Huffpost and most of the rest of the "news outlets" in America? Run a story on something that matters just once - maybe the fact that a few hundred billion are being stolen every year by the banking industry.”

“While I agree that media should run stories on the problems of corruption and other more important issues I actually prefer to have stories with a "positive twist" as well. Usually a lot of news is just depressing and there to "scare you" with muggings, rape and murder. Scare tactis are used to keep people afraid and apathethic so we will not act on political corruption, social injustice and crooks in the banking industry. Positive news like this are a part of the solution and not a part of the problem.”

“You obviously have never been in a blizzard or a HUGE snowstorm, and obviously don't watch the news of such happenings like last winter all over most of the USA.”
“Huffpost is completely an arm of the Murdock propaganda machine. Always the official version of stories with an agenda. Where are the reports on the brutal crackdown of Arab Spring revolts which worked against US/EU interests? Still waiting to hear how the West crushed the uprisings in Bahrain and Yemen.
Yes Assad is one more dictator, only difference was the he and Gadhaffi were opposed to US/EU influence rather than pawns of it. Most of the armed violence in this rebellion is backed by foreign mercenaries. Plenty of news reports to indicate these facts but you won't hear a peep about it from the Murdock media monopoly. Always consider the opposing viewpoint or you'll get dragged into a manipulated set of beliefs meant to benefit others at your expense.”

“How much below 80 was your IQ when last tested?
Kaddafi was to be kind a bloodthirsty psychotic murderer. Basher Assad is following in his father's footsteps and murdering his own citizens. His father murdered at least 20,000. Since basher spent a major part of his life selling eyeglasses in England, he has never been anti US/EU that is your nightmarish version of non-reality.”
“When my ex-wife cheated I was angry until I finally realized that it was unfair for me to hold anyone to a lifelong promise. I saw that marriage was just a contract where you try to force the other person to do what you want - never abandon you. I decided it was a form of selfishness to try to control other people in this way and that is why we get so upset when we aren't given what we want.
Yes, I agree people should be honest rather than cheat. However the whole situation wouldn't be such a problem if we didn't want to control the other person so much. If your partner wants to be with someone else, why not try to accept that they will either find the person who is best for them or they will decide you are that person? If you truly love someone then I'd think you would respect their decisions rather than try to control them. What so many people (including me) called love seemed in hindsight to be a form of desperation and selfishness. Why would you even want to "force" someone to be with you? And if you thought you were the best person for your partner, why would you be so angry that they saw someone else? We try to force others to give us love or support, without realizing that this is our own responsibility. Give rather than control, then your partner will want to stay.”

“"I saw that marriage was just a contract where you try to force the other person to do what you want - never abandon you."
I don't understand how any force can be involved when it is a mutual and voluntary agreement. Treating others as you expect to be treated is not a form of control.”
