Dirty Little Secrets the Republicans Don't Want You to Know

Commented Jul 14, 2010 at 14:00:52 in Politics

“So what have the Democrats given us? A watered down healthcare bill, continued war, a financial package that is vaporware with Wall Street still laughing all the way to their banks with our money. Figure it out people the Democrats are no better perhaps even worse since they promise so much more and then waffle and end up cowing before the slightest resistance. As long as these two parties rule America corporations are bound to end up with the people as expendable cost cutting deletions from the bottom line. The alternative to start with is term limits (one term and then out) federally mandated for Congress. Throw them all out of office. Recall them All. Recall them All. Recall them All.”

“The act of creation is always more difficult than the act of destruction, and always takes more time and energy...

That the Dems have not been able to fix in a short time what the Repubs have destroyed over a much longer period of time, is not a surprise. Well, except maybe to you.”

Are You Addicted to the Past?

“You don't have to let go of the past. You simply transform it. Build another outcome. Consciousness is mutable. Most do not realize this and that is why they get stuck. Take control of your life by taking control of your Consciousness. You do not need a coach for this simply because a coach is just another crutch and once they are gone there you are left with just your thoughts. All you have to do is to change your mind and recognize that you did so. Keep changing your mind until you are thinking about what you want to...ex. a goal you are pursing whatever it may be. If the past intrudes such as in bringing you down recognize that these are only thoughts which may be dismissed like annoying bugs that buzz you in the humidity of summer. Step into the air conditioning away from those bugs and get your composure back. Think your thoughts not someone else's. Be very cautious of letting others speak for you even if they mean well or you are paying them (a coach ) to do so. At a certain point you will have to figure this out for yourself. Start one thought at a time and then build a mansion of positive thoughts all the while remembering to let go of any interference that comes your way. Let of the past only be becoming confident in your ability to change your mind at a moment's notice. Like now for example”

Shadow Elite: Neocons Blast Back, On Israel's Behalf

Commented Jun 10, 2010 at 17:01:18 in World

“Did anyone I hear say CONSPIRACY. Oops sorry to raise my voice. The Jew haters who masquerade as whatever certainly have to work much harder these days when fact checks and informed citizens are ready to call in their charade of intelligent mockery.
So many have used the theoretical Jewish question and answer session to blood libel Israel and the Jews throughout history so I guess its your turn to give it you best shot although really so much effort. You see that is the telling underpining of this article; the amount of effort to twist and turn and make it seem like Israel is some kind of monster.
Luckily (thank G-d) it was a sophomoric effort at best.
It is a no brainer that without Israel as a power in the Middle East chaos rules, oil prices sky rocket and the world gets set on terrorist fire. G-d bless Israel always.”

“As a Jew I resent people making false charges of anti-semitism such as you have done. Cry wolf too often and when real anti-semitism rears its' ugly head nobody will listen. You don't have to agree with the author, you don't have to like the article, but if all you can do is engage in name calling you hardily are arguing effective for your point of view. There is not a word of hatred in this article. It is intelligent well written and factual.”

“Im sure the Middle East would go up in flames if Israel wasnt there..Please. It was the Birts and the French who divided the Middle East after WW1 to the situation it is now in.

“Jew hater? Grow up. Name calling is not an impressive argument. The word 'jew' was not even used in this article. If you go around crying wolf all the time, nobody will believe you when someone actually is a 'jew hater'.

Also, simply throwing the word conspiracy, and conspiracy theory at someone is not really effective as a means to discredit an idea anymore.”

'Tell the people what they want to hear.' That will get you elected. Once in office posture, theorize, make it look like you are doing something by watering down a health package or gutting a financial package. This President just doesn't want to get his hands dirty. Call him Mr Clean. He shows anger only when it is scripted as anger.
Bush did not disappoint me. He lived up to his incompetence. Obama surpasses Bush with an over achieving incompetence. We have been systematically and ruthlessly betrayed by Obama and the Democrats.

The U.S. Should Break the Gaza Blockade

Commented Jun 1, 2010 at 17:24:12 in World

“Nice job of piling on and misrepresenting the facts. The blockade has been there 3 years. It is to prevent weapons from being smuggled into Gaza at a port Israel cannot monitor. There is already a port in place that humanitarian aid may enter. The flotilla was trying to break the blockade. The Israeli navy told them to pull over and turn back to where they came from or this port where humanitarian aid comes in all the time. Given that the flotilla was deliberately provoking the Israeli's they are lucky there wasn't more violence. When told to stand aside the flotilla responded...'
Stashes of clubs and knives meant they were ready to make this an international incident. All you have done is to show your racism. The worst racism comes from those who stand beside you flouting their Jewish ancestry and stab Israel time after time in the back. You have not a clue. Israel is numero uno in the terror war. When they come here and blow up your children's school you will say "oh well they are simply misguided, and misunderstood." It''s always the same piler on's, anti semites all of them especially those well meaning Jews who out of liberal fairness destroy the very thing that saves them. They want to return to Egypt as if that will save them. It (anti semitism) never goes away it just recedes until the next time. The world forgets Israel remembers
Thank G-d for Israel.”

rick390 on Jun 1, 2010 at 18:34:30

“Israel is not the end all and be all though they surely act like it. And, of course, anyone that would dare disagree with anything they do is tagged as an anti-semite. Israel is not perfect and in this case they are deeply flawed. Their justification for the blockade is watery thin. Their commandeering of boats on the high seas makes them no better than pirates and they should be reviled as such.”

There's a New AIG Story. I Was an AIG Exec. Here's the Deal.

Commented Apr 20, 2010 at 14:09:42 in Business

“Intent. This is the word no one speaks of. If someone sets up to rip you off...criminal intent. We have to put them in prison. All of them, Paulson, the executives at Goldman Sachs and impose huge fines and get that money back to those who were ripped off. Stop pretending this is the gentlemen's criminal club where there are no consequences. Geitner too should serve time. Instead of serving man, how about serving time.
By the way AIG is the house like in Vegas where they betting one way or the other. No mercy for them. Their motives were never pure since they thought they had a racket going.
All that money that was lost was gained by someone. Get it back. Declare all of it ill gotten gains. Get it back, place it into a huge mortgage pool for homeowners who are in trouble - give it back to the investors.
The foxes are in charge of the henhound America but now we are all watching, better communication. Hopefully we will see justice and make this better.
The mentality that thinks it is okay to trick people out of their money one way or another is at the root of all of this. When you buy a product you have something. A financial instrument is just like holding chips in Vegas and just like Vegas the house is stacked against you. When your financial success means someone else's ruin there is no honor in that, none at all.”

“I agree with what you are saying except for 'Israel should not have nukes.' Israel has never said they have or don't have nukes but okay assume they do. Why is this important? Israel with nukes means that they have a trump card to play in world politics. Otherwise it would be easy for forces of chaos to overrun her. They only push so far on the world stage because what Israel is saying is that if her country is in danger then without saying she has nukes for a possible preemptive first strike. The circumstances would have to be extreme in order for this to happen.
Okay here are some extreme circumstances. You have the leader of Iran,'what's his name' vowing to annihilate the Jews. Well with nukes he could certainly give that a go. So before he does Israel must act and I might add with the full cooperation of the world by the way. Iran with nukes threatens the entire mideast, Russian and China, everyone in that sphere of influence.
Thankfully Israel holds that trump card and Iran is begging for them to use it so that their unrest can be rechanneled into jihad against Israel. In any event Iran is doomed and the people there know it which is why a major regime change will be on the front pages very soon!”

“Right now Israel holds the key the future of the world. If Iran goes nuclear terrorists will just as quickly go nuclear including bombing your city right there in the good old USA while all the Jew haters vent their spleen. Your city! Not some place far off. Now lookee here. In order to prevent Iran Israel might bomb them with limited results. Or nuke them and the rest of their Arab neighbors who have been relentless in their pursuit of Israel's destruction. Then the whole thing comes unraveled. Everybody starts nuking everybody all because of their hatred of the Jews.
Thankfully at just the right time Israel chooses to be strong. Iran is toppled by revolution as those who want to march madly to Israel are stopped by those who have had enough of war in Iran. Soon other arab nations begin intercine battles dismantling their oppressive leadership. And in a turn of the most incredible sorts these revolutionaries turn to Israel to set up a mandated middle east bloc of nations with Israel at the center of influence. The arab people want their freedom as much as any others. Countries have underestimated Israel in the past much to their regret and doom.
So for all those Jew haters, self hating Jews and the jump on the hate wagon mob Israel grows stronger and there isn't a thing you can do about it...”

“Regardless of what anyone says Israel remains strong. There are many who are afraid of Israel’s growing strength. The Arab nations see Israel as an ongoing threat. Politicians like Obama see the Middle East as a way to increase his political power. Archbishop however, does not see Israel. He does not understand what Israel means to the world. This is strange because his faith is directly linked to Israel through the Old Testament.

“On 24 February 2004, the U.S. State Department declared: "Israel occupied the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights after the 1967 War.... The international community does not recognize Israel's sovereignty over any part of the occupied territories."

UNSC Resolution 446 (22 March 1979) affirms that "the policy and practices of Israel in establishing settlements in the Palestinian and other Arab territories occupied since 1967 have no legal validity..."

UNSC Resolution 465 (1 March 1980) "...all measures taken by Israel to change the physical character, demographic composition, institutional structure or status of the Palestinian and other Arab territories occupied since 1967, including Jerusalem, or any part thereof, have no legal validity..."

In 2004, the International Court of Justice ruled that “no territorial acquisition resulting from the threat or use of force shall be recognized as legal.” The Court denoted this principle a “corollary” of the U.N. Charter and as such “customary international law” and a “customary rule” binding on all member States of the United Nations.

As a UNSC member, the US agrees to abide by the UN Charter, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Fourth Geneva Convention. Hence, under international law, the US must view all lands that Israel occupied during the war it launched on 5 June 1967 as illegally and belligerently occupied.”

“Actually those who you call in error Palestinians originally were kicked out of Jordan by their Arab brothers. So rude don't you think. Say I wonder where they got the idea of blowing themselves up? Israeli's? No from those same brothers. You know some families just have too many issues.”

“America will instead help Israel to occupy the entire Mideast after the failed governments find their people rising against them because of their corruption. America will always help Israel. By the way Israel always wins. Strange that so many haven't figured that out yet. Most people in Israel 91 percent want to pursue settlements and really do not want a two state solution. Don't blame them do you. How about if we give Texas to Mexico and call it a two state solution?

The discovery of an alternative fuel that eliminates oil will take away the money from terrorists and then nothing...back to the deserts, camels, etc. We are less than a year and a half away from that now.

There will never be US troops occupying any part of Israel. That is basic and really would be a waste of our time. The terrorists surround Israel. Time to clean house round up the terrorists and ship them to an island somewhere where they can practice blowing themselves up until they are gone.”

“How far back do you go with theft of land. Two thousand years maybe... No theft of land especially when as a result of a war or two this land may no longer be responsibly held by none other than Israel. That's right you go to war and lose and then them's the break's. The security of the region is much better off with Israel in charge everywhere.
No two state solution and Israel WILL BE asserting full control over Jerusalem. It gave east Jerusalem back after one of these wars. Imagine that? Things are different now and you had better come to terms with an Israel that is not backing down anymore. This is their land. Those you say owned the land certainly don't live in Israel since you can't own land in Israel. Those you defend want the annihilation of Israel starting small with teenage boys and girls blowing themselves up in the name of...I really don't is off the chart nuts. Israel and America are closer than ever.
Israel will be sovereign over the entire middle east. Arab states will riot and mass revolutions there will topple every sheik oil soaked government and then with the help of the USA all Arab lands will come under Israeli rule.
The people themselves will clamor because of the corruption of their governments. So make up all the nonsense you want about Israel being this or that but in the end it is Israel who always wins.”

“I believe the Germans had the same attitude some time ago. It didn't work out well for them.”
