“what a load of BS. This girl was responsible for her own actions and the choices she made. Marijuana is a drug just like all those other drugs out there produced by big pharma. The only difference is marijuana is all natural, can be grown by the patient, and is not physically addicting. Marijuana is effective for many afflictions, and as a pain killer. Can it be abused? Of course, just like all the pain pills out there that are abused by millions, not to mention the abuse of alcohol, both of which are physically addicting and make their producers billions. Oh, and by the way, no one has ever died from a marijuana overdose. You can't say the same for pain pills and alcohol.”
“exactly Mary. they created this problem by treating girls as a burden on the family, and the boys as little princes. they have gotten what they deserve in that there is not enough females to go around, and the ones that are there are treated like dirt.”
“ruined their party? really? I thought they found a used band aid or condom in the cake; now that would ruin a party, but a paring knife? And now they are going to sue. I hope they get a dollar and have to pay their lawyer thousands.”

“Saddam was a rabid dog that needed to be put down. He gassed his own people and was actively plotting against the US. Just because he moved his chemical weapons to Syria, doesnt mean he never had them.”
SabrinaII on Mar 5, 2013 at 18:44:57
“Saddam was no threat to the US. Where do you get the facts to back up your statement? GWB introduced a new concept: preventive war which basically states that if we don't like some government or its head of state, or think they might become a threat to us sometime in the future, we can go to war with that country. Do you think that is OK? How many people died to put one "rabid dog" down? Was it worth all their lives? There is no proof whatsoever that Saddam possessed weapons of mass destruction at the time of our attack. None. The inspectors sent into Iraq multiple times tried to tell GWB. He wouldn't listen. And when Valerie Plame's husband spoke up to debunk the "yellow cake uranium," Cheney and company outed her as an agent of the CIA. Are these really the type of people you want to defend?”
“obviously alot of liberals on this site, but I would like to say that I believe that history will be much kinder to in its assessment of W.'s presidency than what is currently being said. I am glad he went after the terrorists that attacked our country. By going on the offensive and not allowing them the space to plan and execute more attacks there has not been another major terrorist attack on our soil since. Hindsight is 20/20 and it is easy to say that 9/11 should have been detected and averted. The liberals messiah, Obama, on the other hand has been an unmitigated disaster for our country. His polarizing politics has created legislational gridlock in our capital and the fools cannot even pass a budget let alone work together on solving our countries problems. "Obamacare" was rushed through and forced down our throats. It is ill conceived, will not solve our health systems problems, and the cost keeps rising and rising. All the Bush haters out there will foam at the mouth, but history will be the final judge of who served our country best.”

“The terrorists came from Afghanistan, and were of Saudi nationality, mostly. The war in Afghanistan should have been over by 2003, 2004 at the latest...however, due to Bush's incompetency, (who didn't care whether or not we got bin Laden, as he stated), that war is still going on.
I am glad to see how you have already determined that Obamacare will bea failure...since it hasn't yet been inacted...it is like the superbowl in the 3rd quarter. 2014 is when a bunch of new phases kicked in.
The reason many things are not getting down is that Republicans in the Congress have filibustered more bills since PResident Obama was elected, than was the history of the entire Congress from the first, under George Washington, through WW II. Our governing institution has been destroyed because of the know nothing Tea Party. Our government cannot function without the elected leadership do its job.
You might be interested, in case you've never heard this: Even bills where President Obama has taken, word-for-word, Republican proposed bills from past years, they have refused to pass it.
If you really want health care costs to come down, then support single payer health care. We can do better than about 37th in the world. The costs are going to bankrupt the country.
And no, having been an intelligence officer in the military for years, Bush will NEVER be graded more than mediocre. His lack of basic Presidential competency is amazing.

“The same 238 historians that rate republicans #1,3,5,6,8 & 10 in presidential history rate GWB #42 & Obama #16.
Unless you find a way to change history, George will forever be at the bottom of the list.
As for your other Faux wish-list of Obamas "failures"....your bubble is the only one on Earth that believes it......
Carry on Mike from the 19th century.....”

“Geo. W's war on Iraq: 5,000 wasted American lives, many thousands wounded, and a 1,000,000 Iraqi death. By the way, our President voted against that war.”

“Whoa paddner! Youd do know he attacked the wrong country?
And he was prepared to fend off the 'enemy'
"I'm telling you there's an enemy that would like to attack America, Americans, again. There just is. That's the reality of the world. And I wish him all the very best." --George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Jan. 12, 2009”

“Yes it will, wonder why republicans never once proposed healthcare for the nation ? Iraq did not attack us and if bush had paid attention to a hand carried memo maybe 3,000 Americans would be alive. President Obama is working against a republican hate tide fueled by more hate that a democrat, Black man is President. Strange that you conservatives want everything 1950 except the tax rate.”

“The Republicans are causing the gridlock. Look up how many filibusters they have had during Obama's presidency. Blaming Obama for them not doing their jobs is just sad. Bush was a terrible president. History has already proved that.”

“it was a combination of bush/channey that got us into this senseless 12 year war. just keep that war machine going. it is very hard to fight an idea or belief than to fight a spacific country. meanwhile defense contractors (haliburton) get richer and richer!”

“BTW, a big portion of the defecit is the result of two unfunded wars started by Bush and cronies. Going after OBL in Afghanistan made sense but he didn't finish the job choosing instead to go after Sadam who had nothing to do with 9/11. Now these years later, we are in debt and thousands have died. All because he and his administration lied.”

“Iraq did not attack our country. Do you know anything?”
“having gone to "new york times.com" and read the article I can say that it jibes perfectly to the general sense you get from the obama presidency that its all about politics and not what is good for the country. obama's chicago cronies care not what damage they inflict to america or to the world as long as they can acheive a "political victory" and make themselves look good. it is unfortunate that obama was reelected and damage continues to be inflicted at a frightening pace. there is no hope for the end of the dysfunction in washington until obama is gone. God help us til then.”

“President Obama is being responsive to the American people who want our commitment in Afghanistan to come to an end. In 2008, Obama made it perfectly clear what he would do in Afghanistan if he was elected.”
“gonna go down in history as the worst govt to ever misserve this great country of ours. from the president to the senate to the house of representatives. these pompous, egotistical, self serving azzhles couldnt agree on the time of day!”
“As Americans we would remove our women and children from the combat zone and try to protect them. The Taliban and islamists worldwide use their women and children as human shields and launch their attacks from behind them knowing they will be killed by counter fire. the death cult that is islam treats human life as being cheap and disposable, to be used to further their evil agenda.”

“As Americans we would make certain that Muslim women and children were in the combat zone and try to kill them. The Americans and their allies use their own women and children as excuses for warfare and launch their cowardly attacks from behind warplanes and drones knowing that the innocents will be killed by napalm, white phosphorous gas, and other illegal munitions. The death cult that is Americanism treats human life as being cheap and disposable, to be used to further their evil agenda.”
