Such a shameful and sad story above on indefinite detention of citizens. Americans and their politicians have become such cowards to permit such an evil perversion of the heart of the constitution. Obama and Bush are both responsible and worthy of disrespect over this

Even Rome in the time of Christ had greater protections for its citizens and they threw Christians to Lions

Peace

I have written my reps at least ten times over this law.. It was passed 98 to 0 with 2 votes not present. Wonder if this is how folks thought in Germany in the very early 30s..

Iranian officials have ordered residents of its third largest city to evacuate, raising new concerns about a potential leakage of radioactive material from a nuclear facility.

An edict issued on Wednesday told residents in Isfahan, a provincial capital of 1.5 million people 340 miles south of Tehran, to leave the city “because pollution has now reached emergency levels,” the BBC reported.

Michael Rubin, a former Pentagon adviser on Iran and Iraq and former editor of the Middle East Quarterly, said: “Pollution in Isfahan is a problem but in the past, Iranian authorities [responded] by closing schools and the government to keep people at home and let the pollution dissipate. Mass evacuations suggest a far more serious problem.”

Rubin added that a “radiation leak” is a possibility, the Washington Free Beacon reported, noting that the evacuation order may corroborate previous reports of radioactive leakage.

The Uranium Conversion Facility in Isfahan converts yellowcake into uranium oxide, uranium metal, and uranium hexafluoride. The plant sits on an active fault line, and Isfahan has been heavily damaged six times by earthquakes, according to the Free Beacon.

It's OBOMERS fault. If he hadn't imposed sanctions, they would be able to have first class, safe, uranium enrichment sites.

like the article in yesterday's Sunday NYTimes, "Can the Republicans Be Saved From Obsolescence?"
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/17/magazine/can-the-republicans-be-saved-from-obsolescence.html
ROBERT DRAPER

many good observations and wonderful lines in that one... from the mouths of the young faction of the G.O.P....

but this one might be pertinent to this discussion, and some food for thought about the next couple of decades... taking from the Democrat's history...

“It ought to concern people that the most Republican part of the electorate under Ronald Reagan were 18-to-29-year-olds. And today, people I know who are under 40 are embarrassed to say they’re Republicans. They’re embarrassed! They get harassed for it, the same way we used to give liberals a hard time.”

Perhaps Ed.. Yet,, Obama said when he was running, that it was totally irresponsible of a president not to have a budget and a debt ceiling, and now he seeks to remove the debt ceiling. He has engaged us in ILLEGAL war actions just like his predecessors. And he has ILLEGALY appointed positions behind the back of the senate and congress. The NDAA 2013 bill is full of actions contrary to our Constitution.

Despite what it sounds like, the debt ceiling does almost nothing to limit our debt.

All it really does is risk our creditworthiness.

Ron.. I doubt Ed's post was strictly about who is better. Its about .."what goes around comes around". It doesn't matter if its a liberal doing it or a conservative. If you treat the other side with disrespect, you can expect it will eventually come back to bite you. Right now the GOP is reaping the rewards or belittling the liberals for decades. I believe that there is a lesson in that and the liberals would be wise to not belittle the needs of the conservatives, or the pendulum will swing back the other way. Balance is what is needed.

I personally find it hard to do because after having been derided as a dirty little hippie for so long, I can barely stomach many conservatives. So I have to work hard to be respectful. And it seems like the conservatives still haven't learned the lessons of being disrespectful. They are still predominately incredibly arrogant.

Yes Dave,,ours and everyone elses we are in debt with..And that is a concern, no?

And John,, yes i see your point,, but to call one side or the other worse isnt hitting the mark.. We see that rather clearly here in the threads.


CLEARLY both the Dems and Repubs have engaged in illegal wars in the last decade. Clearly, BOTH sides are at fault. And its a DEM in charge now, and hes circumvented the constitution over and over. If you detested bush for his actions, you MUST do the same for Obama.

yes those arrogant republicans are irritating us all with their unreasonable work ethics. why not chain them permanently to jobs if they like work so hard and we continue the free ride. our good liberal president should not care how much they suffer only how much tax money he can get from them.

The only fertile ground that exists for respect lies with shared values, of which there is quite a bit when you get right down to it. Everyone values liberty, freedom and equality..... well maybe not so much with equality..... but the lack of respect has much to do with an attitude of certainty of righteousness and intolerance for alternative processes, which the "conservatives" are largely responsible for. Conservatives must divorce themselves from the right wing authoritarian extremists if they ever expect to coexist with other cultures.

Which is what it boils down to. Dominate or co-exist? That is the question. The right wing answer is to dominate. Which explains their undying love for guns and militarism. In terms of civilization potential, the right wing aspires to the mediocre at best. Liberal Democrats aspire to a higher potential. We know which is of a higher moral standing it is just a question of what is practically attainable, with the least risk.
