“And what does her being poor and uneducated have to do with teeling the truth or being human or having something to contribute to this case. Your statements is typical of how America dismisses the poor and beleives they have no rights or a right to a voice because of socio-economic conditions. Wouldn't you have an attitude if someone followed/stalked you?”
“Because at Republican posturing is based on hatred of the Democratic agenda first and the total dehumization of minorities, women, etc. If you really are this niave then you have no idea what this country was built upon.”

“You really should get away from that hate-mongering-racism-dwelling clique you hang with, it's unhealthy to go through life like that.”
“Every average American citizen who has a brain that works knew this from day 1...that the media is now trying to conceal their original complicity in selling the lie as breaking revelation is disgusting. Every barbershop, bodega, and casual bus conversation I heard, and had myself..stated plainly without deep analysis that the US was going in Iraq for oil. That America's educated media and the majority of its intelligentsia contnue to analyze something that never needed anything but common sense to uncover just shows how brainless many of the strategists, pros, correspondents, columnists, and experts are.”
“And he is an educated person elected to federal office?”

“Yeah, he stated in his speech that he owed over $100,000 in student loans (in which he got federal assistance for) that he just recently paid off. I think he, and the taxpayers who helped put him through school should get a refund.”
“Chris Kyle killed hundreds of people and bragged about it. I'm sorry but many Americans are against meaningless wars and support our troops only because many are placed in situations beyond their control. We will not support any and every war that America declares. Iraq was an illegal invasion and I for one have never supported the slaughter of millions of innocent lives because Saddam no longer followed orders from Washington. No one is disrespecting America's men and women warriors because they have not bragged about killing and confessed to not having one shred of remorse like Chris Kyle.”

“Think about the families of the 150 Iraqis he bragged about killing and profited from.
Perhaps they might be suffering from some PTSD.”
“None of the actions you attribute to Mr. Kyle would make him more than an amateur unless he was trained in handling PTSD sufferers and licensed to administer treatment. Its common sense not to give a gun to someone mentally unstable. The face that we are disputing this is why America is losing it's way.”

“So how did all those professional psychiatrists and psychologists of Holmes' and Lanza work out for those guys?”
“But what if we didn't respect him? Respect isn't something you are entitled to unless you have lived your life with respect and honor and love..the things that are commendable. Murduring people for a living is not a respectable thing no matter how well the intentions.”

“So you respect Obama. Based on his orders, service members are using drones to kills the enemy in Pakistan. This also includes a number of innocent people who were in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
“The police don't devote their lives to killing innocent civilians in foreign countries for unwarranted wars for vague missions that have no chance of ever being won. And the police don't recklessly believe they are doing the right thing by killing more than one hundred people and never feeling for once you have committed murder in the name of empire building. While there are corrupt police officers in America, few can come close to what this man has done. This man was no police officer.”
“America is a war mongering society. Is it really surprising that we would have such high number of mass shootings and individual murders? We have been at war for more years than I am alive. I was born into a country that has been at war my whole life. Picking up a gun and killing another human is actually something that America encourages via the example it has set. We ignore diplomacy time and time again and have made routine decisions to kill, murder and destroy our "enemies."”

“And our own people. Listen to the anger and name calling from the fox group.”
“Just as we are quick to think we have people figured out based upon incomplete images or Tabloid photos in real life...the writer and many of the Adam Sackler's chest devotees have followed suit by labeling Adam as a villian when the only image we had of him was through Hannah's needy, almost co-dependent eyes. Next time hold off on the "villan" labels until you know if the term really applies. (Hannah never said no lets not have sex let's talk!)”
“The silly comments are just as horrific as the assault. When people can joke and make light of someone's face being chewed offf is it really surprising that it happened. America has been sick for quite some time.”

“Yeah, and it's only going to get worse. The Nation's cancer is called liberalism.”
“The lies never stop when it comes to us going to war. American has no credibility as an honest broker on the global stage because we have lied and changed our positions depending on who is involved. We used white phosphorous in Iraq and sat back when Israel used it against the Palestinians. These red lines and the moral outrage that accompany it take our hypocriticism to new levels.”

“Still, if you talked with almost any of the men and women who make a good living as reporters, writers and editors at major media corporations, virtually all will say that they do the best they can to report the news fairly.
Sure, in the high-income realms of corporate journalism cynics undoubtedly abound; you don't get to the top by objecting to the 'slant' the owners want.
But I would guess that most full-time journalists who make a decent living would be offended if you suggested that they don't cover the full story, or suppress and distort information.
They're likely to blame shortcomings on deadlines and draconian editors, but few demand that their bylines be removed when their story is rewritten to fit the corporate spin. Those who do get uppity about top-edit revisionism typically get riffed within a year.
So...how do we wind up with astonishingly distorted, one-sided and factually anemic news year after year?
It's a big question because the things I hear repeated as fact by TV news viewers in my area are fantastic. Plenty of citizens still insist that Saddam was behind the Washington and World Trade Center attacks, and that Obama caused the 2008-to- present financial meltdown.
People are not getting the straight story through the corporate press, and although that's not new, it's still shameful.”

“We've also 'stirred the pot' in MANY 'revolutions. I feel said for the millions of Syrians being affected by the rebellion against Assad. But the fact is: It is HIGHLY likely that US covert ops went in to foment the rebellion. Hence, it is reasonable, given the US history in doing such things, that Assad, Russia, and Iran would CLAIM that the rebellion is being carried out by foreign terrorists.
The US would not hesitate for a SECOND to risk many thousands of innocent lives in order to effect a self-serving favorable regime change. One reason Iran has no deep love for the US is because of the military coup the CIA orchestrated to put the Shah into power.”
“Not one person has to recognize the Holocaust if they choose not to...there isn't a international law demanding Holocaust recognition, but a democratically elected government has international law to validate its right to exist. Your comparison is absurd.”
“Year after year Israeli actions makes one wonder who exactly are the terrorists. The Israeli government continues to breed hatred among people who are not anti-semetic then wonder why anti-semetism is rising around the world. Few nations, beside Germany with its infinite pool of historic guilt, America, with its fear of AIPAC stand up and clap no matter what routine, and the Switzerland who are to this day still being shaken down by the holocaust industry, approves of what this nation is doing. Be very careful Israel, you are surrounded by nations who will begin to use the same right to self-defense rationale. America is so over extended both financially and militarily that running to your resuce will not be an option. Keep behaving as you do and your "behind" will get exactly what it is asking for.”

“How sad, all the hate. Switzerland stole tens of millions of dollars from the Jews, and you call the Jewish attempt to recover their money a shakedown. Your moral depravity apparently knows no limits.”
