“a big nothing. but the gop will jadd it to their socialist complaint list.”

“It goes to 'character' (or the lack thereof). For some of us, 'character' is the most essential trait--for it defines what you'll do when no one else is looking.

In this instance, when the "White House previously denied" something...that's very different from saying it had no information. The only legitimate way the White House staff could have affirmed a negative is to have asked the President. So either the staff is behaved illegitimately, or the President is lied (or both).

So you see, the President's credibility (believability) is quite poor right now--and it's his fault. Until recently, most conservatives have only had disdain over his policies. As a result of the President's recent behavior, many of us are starting to question his character.”

“You are probably correct, it is only a big deal if a Republican lies, with Democrat libs it is business as usual.”

“Yes, but they put all of their eggs in the basket of Obamacare failing, and every day those eggs are rotting worse, so since they have no accomplishments to run on, they are just desperately compounding on their lies. You know what they say about that tangled web they weave.”

“this is nonsense. african population growth is riduculous. in 1963 there were 10 million people in kenya. today over 40 million. they're poor and hungry. it's elephants or them. the problem is we dramatically reduced infant mortality. some great blessing that turned out to be.”

“twinoaks seems to miss the fact that the elephants aren't being eaten. . .”

flailin on Dec 5, 2013 at 16:53:39

“You're not aware of the situation on the ground in Africa. Elephants are largely in protected areas and wildlife tourism offers the best chance at a decent living for those who live nearby. Most of the population growth has been in the big urban centers, far from any wildlife, including elephants. Controlling population growth and educating Africa's youth are huge challenges that need to be tackled as well. But losing the elephant won't help Africans, and is unacceptable to most human beings around the world.”
