“My friend, I grew up in NYC for 26 years and lived in Philly(admittedly, almost as corrupt) for another 12. Methinks you haven't done enough background and historical research. Peace.”

Quimbombo on Dec 10, 2013 at 09:58:16

“My friend, there is always corruption ANYWHERE. NJ, while it does have corruption issues, whether political/Mafia or otherwise is no better or worse than other places in America. You no longer live here in the area, things change from the past we're no longer in the 19th nor 20th Century. Much Peace to you too. And a very Happy Holiday as well.”

“Northern Jersey, Home of the East Coast Mafia! Why should any of this surprise us? The dominance of the Mafia in that area has existed since the mid 19th century, and NJ politics has been dominated by that highly-principled organization for almost as long! actually, the past two decades of events in DC makes me wonder if they haven't formed a southern branch!”

“I certainly respect your thoughts - they pretty much reflect my own. However, if we have to wait for "someone who thinks for themselves" we'll grow old and die together, I'm afraid! Those folks have reached the edge of extinction, in America-at-large, not to mention the political scene. Peace.”

“Nonetheless, Obama's diplomacy argument was built on the "certainty" that it was the Assad government which used the chemical weapons. We did not(and still don't) know that, yet he was proselytizing diplomacy or war to the Syrians. Sounds like, smells like and looks like manipulation of public opinion a la Bush, Cheney, Wolfkowitz to me!”

“Perfect example of the micro-memory of Americans. Was I the only one who noted that the Commission investigating the gas attack NEVER determined who was responsible? In the subsequent saber-rattling, this hard, cold fact never seemed to surface. I am no fan of Assad and certainly no fan of chemical weapon attacks, but I was no fan of the Bush administration's distortions of the truth about Hussein, and I am no more a fan of this administration's attempts to follow in those footsteps. With every day that passes, this POTUS for whom I voted twice seems to merge more and more closely with his predecessor, teaching me, at least that there are no virgins in w..re houses!”

“Remember, Obama opted for Diplomacy and he listened to the Russians... The Right then was all over him with that decision, and it was the Right, especially Graham and McCain that opposed Diplomacy...”

“You are absolutely right. But Obama was really hot to go and if Americans had maintained their usual "don't speak up" posture we might have. But instead people melted the phone and email lines to their Congressmen/women and the White House. Now the White House didn't care what we thought but Congress still wants to keep their jobs. More people should speak out but don't bother. In this case I really do think it made a difference.”

Can you imagine the ramifications if it had ended up being the group of rebels that McCain had gone to meet with, on his own?”

“Oh goodie! Another "former Wall Street lawyer" jumps into the mix! She obviously aimed for the "big bucks" when she got out of law school - an7yone want to offer odds that she's changed in that regard? If not, we are all in agreement that whoever has the fattest wallet or the biggest checkbook will "persuade" her votes! I don't doubt her sincerity on the issue of sexual assaults in the military, but lets see what her stance is on things like SS, Medicare, the national debt, etc. - you know, the less important things?! Again, anyone want to offer odds on that?”

“OK, suggest another word. Remember that "transparent government" we were going to have? Remember how we were getting out of Afghanistan in 2014 - oh, wait, now it's 2020! Any word you suggest which covers those, and many other things I'll settle for - and, don't forget he's a lame duck, so he has little to lose by digging in his heels(if he truly believes in democracy!).

“And it required 28 years to release this report, why? The report does not specify whether those pollutants remained in the water over the subsequent 28 years. Nothing like getting our children ready to go forth as cannon fodder while we poison their wives and babies. This report is sort of like an Egyptian Health Department release about the risks of TB in the First Dynasty!”

“It helps to actually read and not skim.

This is old news and has been known for a long, long time. CDC just released this because they were looking at births and development overtime instead of just the period between 68-85. Getting leukemia in your mid 20s is kinda rare and that is what they were analyzing.”

“False premise - that facts are important to someone like this. If the Dems continue to believe that facts will disprove the wild and accusatory statements coming from the seats of their trousers, it is a case of the definition of insanity. How many more times do they need to experience completely unfounded, obviously rabble-rousing statements before they accept that logic has no place in the GOP?”
