“they peddle fear...whether it's within America (those who are "different") or outside America (let's make more wars) They thrive on this stuff. Neocons love division.”

“well, perhaps we can look at Canada, UK, Australia etc. to see the results. Oh yeah, there are no adverse reactions when LGBT indifividuals are allowed to serve openly. Do you think the US is "special?" And I thought we were in war time right now, or are those unnecessary bombs and tanks and ammo being used just for fun in Afghanistan??”

“yes it was. The more images that people see of same gender affection the more you can realize that we are everywhere. The affection that heterosupremacists take for granted showing in public is the exact same affection we show in public. Some people are gay, get over it.”

“Yes, stop ALL foreign aid. We cannot afford it. Does Japan or Australia send billions to stop malaria?? Does Canada spend billions in Sudan to stop AIDS?? NO. The US is the world's bully and saviour at the same time. Our priorities are so messed up that now, after the bush dynasty, we are laughed at in the global socioeconomic world. Save 3B in Israel AND repeal busie tax cuts for everyone UNLESS they make one penny over $250K.”

“Exactly. 50 million people are hungry in the US. How do we rectify that?? By spending more than 600 BILLION on defence and increasing that under R/R?? Hell NO. Wanna cut my medicare to build a bomb? NO. Want to up my taxes to fund more ammo to Israel?? Hell NO. This shows us yet again that the wonderful (sarcastic) GOP is the party of war, WAR, and MORE WAR. It is a disgusting platform on which this irrelevent party is running. Major loss this November. Red states...military jobs..lowest in education. No help from R/R on educationl...seems they'd rather have dumb drones make war machines than an educated America.”

“every dollar counts when food stamp usage is at an all time high in the US. 3 Billion would go a long way right here in
America. Any dollar oveseas is a dollar gone from our pocket. 3 billion, in fact, to ONE country. SICK”

“Let's say we stop aid to Israel.  What about aid to stop the spread of maleria world wide and AIDS in Africa?  Disaster relief around the world.  Do we ignore reconstruction in Afghanastan?   I agree that money is needed in the US but where do we stop when it comes to foreign aid?  We could save $3B in Israel or we could raise a $100's of Billions by getting rid of the Bush tax cuts. ”

“the US is backward in so many areas and this is just another example. The pervasive ignorance of Americans astounds the industrialized world, that fundamentalist zealots continually attempt to create a theocracy of the US baffles everyone. It infiltrates all social life, from who can get married (according to exianheterosupremacists) to which countries get US foreign aid to who can get healthcare. Totally messed up. Glad Bill Nye is anti-creationism and anti-indoctrinization of our kids.”

“add up the numbers again It's a huge part...money that WOULD fund domestic issues...but the larger point is that the US specifically supports one specific country blindly. Waste of money and any resources.”

“Quick search of the internet.  A Forbes article dated 1/29/11 states US aid to Isreal was $3 billion dollars.  According to Wikipedia the 2011 budget was a little less thatn $3.6 trillion.  Although 3 billion is not small especially with my income but in compairison to the federal budget I don't think it is that much.   http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/mideast/RL33222.pdf ”

“Their tales are identical, the names have been changed. Xianity does not own the myth of the dying and resurrected saviour...it's as old as Sumeria.”

Mjollnir on Aug 31, 2012 at 13:44:31

“They are similar in some respects, not identical. This Zeitgeist stuff has been debunked repeatedly. Take for example the story of Odin impaling himself with his own spear on the world tree where he hung in agony for 9 days to gain the wisdom of the runes. Well, Jesus suffered for 3 days impaled on a Cross! Yeah, SOME similarity. Very different tales with very different purposes. Osiris, Mithra and the others have SOME similarities but to say they are identical is silly.”

“Mithra, Bali, Crite, Indra, Thulis, Prometheus, Thammuz, Krishna, Osiris, Thor....shall I continue??”

Mjollnir on Aug 31, 2012 at 11:44:33

“Their tales are different. Thor is not a savior and wasn't viewed as such. Perhaps Baldr but not Thor. Even Baldr's narrative is quite different from that of Jesus. And Osiris? The only similarities were that he was "resurrected" and that's where it ends. Same with Mithra.

Not that there aren't some similarities, sure. But Zeitgeist stuff is wrong in its assumptions.”

“Why? Why do you think marriage is "reserved" for a man and wife? I am legally married to my husband. Do you cling to your heterosupremacy by denying me the same rights and responsibilities that you and your wife have? My marrige is completely legal in all ways as yours. I'll accept your congratulations.”
