Alan Alda Discusses Isla Vista Killer: Misogyny A 'Disease That Needs To Be Cured'

“I agree. We are missing so much. For instance, Sophocles wrote about 90 plays and we have 7 of them. Perhaps we could hope/trust that the best were preserved, but that's not always the case. The other primary source is the art - the vase painting and the sculpture. All is open to interpretation though. It is a touchy and problematical thing to try to depict the ancient Greek attitude towards women so I think it is more productive and interesting to have questions rather than definite answers. As for misandry, I'd assume we'd see that in the writing of women possibly, but we have very few women writers in existence. Sappho is the most well-known and I don't think she shows any hatred towards men.”

“At this point, with little time left, I hope Obama does as much for this country as he possibly can without the "help" of this Congress which is a do-nothing set of naysayers only politically motivated.”

“You, like others here, misunderstood me. I was criticizing Congress, not Obama! I approve of what Obama did and I'm just saying that Congress, those do-nothing wastrels, would have never approved. Why? Simply because Obama wanted to do it.”

“Right. They would have done nothing and he would still be a prisoner of war. That's what I meant. I'm sorry you seem to have misunderstood. They have done absolutely nothing and are worthless. So Obama was correct to do the right thing and not ask permission from the rotten T-publicans.”

“No, if Obama had consulted Congress this would not have happened.”

“Joan, I think you mean that if Congress were consulted it would be the same old story, they would have obstructed, and probably let the cat out of the bag. Then he would probably died in that hell-hole.”

“Hey Joan, What were the charges against those exchanged for our POW and who brought the charges? Were the charges ever proven? Inquiring minds want to know because I think you are merely blowing smoke up someone's patooty...”

“Yes it would, because Congress would not have wanted to appear to be saying "no" to the release of a POW. McCain would have been all over the Sunday new shows championing his release and the GOP would have taken credit for orchestrating the whole deal. Please.”

“He could have consulted then gone ahead with his exchange. Snowden saw exigent circumstances, so I guess he was justified.”

danbfas on Jun 2, 2014 at 07:23:29

“So, in the future, President's must ignore Congress and do whatever they want, regardless of the law. After all, it was such a good thing. I'm sure that no matter WHAT that President wants, it will be a good thing. And the people's representatives in Congress, and the law, be damned. Can't wait for new President who will run roughshod over the rule of law as the precedent has been set by Obama. And if it's a Republican, Joan, I'm sure you'll happily agree to whatever it is he or she does.”

“Really???? So he would still be a prisoner of war. A prisoner of war because of 1 of 2 wars Bush started without an exit strategy. What would the DO NOTHING CONGRESS have done?

Golden rule, eh? Well, how about you explain the golden rule of Reagan "negotiated" with the Iranians to arm the Contras. That was a very, very impeachable act.

“He did talk to congress an they knew this was one of the options he was looking at! But didn't tell him it was what he had decided on in the end! If he had it would have turned into a blow out Benghazi case an the man would have died in captivity. He was very ill an that is why the fast move to do the exchange. If people like cruz drug their feet, he would have died with out medical assistance.”

“Unfortunately Joan, America looks out for its soldiers regardless of who sent them to war in the first place. They don't have time to play games with the GOP/Tea Party Little Boys and have Americans held "hostage" again when we are talking about lives.
Sorry Joan, but Cruz thinks he is still in Cuba!”

“And this poor guy would still be languishing in Afghanistan. Always better to ask forgiveness than permission. The Party of NO answer would have been a gorgon conclusion. Now an American soldier is on his way home. cruz gets to bloviate even more and conservatives can get preachy and once again demonstrate their fundamental hypocrisy.”
