The Ft. Hood shooter was of Palestinian descent and that incident and the lives lost is part and parcel of the cost of our entirely one-sided support of Israel. So long as we aid and abet the outright and wholesale taking of all of Palestine we will continue to lose service men and women to that cause. You can't have it both ways or expect the Palestinians to simply march into the sea and drown themselves. I wouldn't, I'd pursue an asymmetric response to what basically amounts to an indirect genocide of other words and means.

That is a CANCER among us...

You may want to look up the etymology of that phrase when applied to people.

It wasnt JEWS who flew planes into the towers. It wasnt a jewish underwear or shoe bomber either. Nor was the guy that went to blow up Manhattan. Nor was the Ft Hood Shooter, or the four Californians who were going to afghanistan to blow up US troops. Nope,, those were ALL muslims. And most trained HERE under the guise of being "friendly immigrants" and citizens..
That is a CANCER among us NOW. And amongst the rest of the world too. And every where they are, its a complete chaotic mess of murder , genocides and attacks.


Dude, maybe if we hadn't overthrown the democratically elected leader of Iran in 1954, supported Saddam Hussein during his worst crimes against his own people, supported all the other mideast kings and dictators like Mubarak, the Saudi and Kuwaiti kings, and supported Israel as they stole ever more Palestinian land, then there were wouldn't be any blowback from Muslims toward the United States. THere wouldn't have been an islamic revolution in Iran for starters.

9-11 was a tiny bloody nose compared with the injustice we've visited on the Muslims first, and we cry and moan about our own nose, but have little regard for the 100,000s of dead after our illegal and unjustified last Iraq invasion that created Millions of refugees.

But of course, we are precious to ourselves and don't give a crap about those others..

I promise you, if we did 1/10th of what we did to the Arab world in the name of oil and power, to Israel, the Israeli would assassinate that president asap. As it is, Israel has sent more spies to the United States to spy on us than the rest of the muslim world combined. Some are still in jail here

Ron, you can take the past 10 years or the past 100 years, and the United States has killed FAR more people and, in many, many countries, than the Islamic world that you say is a mess of Murder. and despite Islamic Sharia Law, which I detest as well, the United States locks up a greater share of its own citizens per capita than ANY Islamic Tyranny, BY FAR

it's just that we're too great of hypocrites to see the log in our own eye

Maybe the had reason.


Michigan Right-To-Work Bill Approved By Republican-Dominated House

LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan Legislature gave final approval Tuesday to a bitterly contested right-to-work plan limiting the power of unions, a devastating and once unthinkable defeat for organized labor in a state considered a cradle of the movement.

Unswayed by Democrats' pleas and thousands of protesters inside and outside the state Capitol, the House approved two final bills, sending them on to Republican Gov. Rick Snyder. One dealt with private sector workers, the other with government employees. Both measures cleared the Senate last week.

It should be called the Right to Work for Less bill.

Victimization Mythology Used to Support Civilian Blitz of Gaza

If CNN and Fox News have convinced you that “up is down,” maybe it is time to accept that you are a danger to yourself and others.

Stupid Netanyahu is now intimating that the people of bombed out Gaza are building gas chambers, gassing vans, huge crematoriums and plan to overwhelm Israel, throwing babies onto bayonets and old ladies into crematoriums, all the while cheering the stench of burning human flesh.

Define poverty. And what do unions do for the welfare of the overall State? They destroy it and bankrupt it!

Maybe lower wages, slightly, are what's needed!

You miss my point. Pensions and all the other crap are killing competition.

I work in mfg and have no union/pension. I have a 401k that I control. It's optional. "Right to choose".

You union as#@&%es can go f*#k yourselves~ You are dead!

Translation: "Unions make those of us too stupid not to be in a union, or to organize our workplace, feel really stupid! And makes us post idiotic, emotional rants that would embarrass a 7 year old!"


Um, no. A 7-yr old would say that where is that in the Constitution? If they were educated anywhere other than Michigan, of course...

In a letter to Majority Leader Harry Reid, 18 Democrat senators and senators-elect have asked for “a delay in the implementation” of the Obamacare medical device tax. Like most of the significant tax increases in Obamacare, the medical device tax is scheduled to take effect on Jan. 1, 2013, conveniently after the 2012 presidential election.

Each of the 18 Democrat signatories voted for or supported Obamacare in the first place. And now they want a sweetheart exemption from one of its most onerous provisions. Even in Washington DC, that shows a lot of gall.

The signatories to the letter are as follows:

Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.)

Kay Hagan (D-N.C.)

Al Franken (D-Minn.)

Herb Kohl (D-Wis.)

Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.)

John Kerry (D-Mass.)

Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.)

Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.)

Robert Casey (D-Pa.)

Ben Nelson (D-Neb.)

Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.)

Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.)

Dick Durbin (D-Ill.)

Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.)

Patty Murray (D-Wash.)

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.)

Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.)

Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) – (Voted for Obamacare in the House)

That would be the First Amendment...

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances
