Mideast: Celebration within Gaza after the bombing of a bus filled with innocent Israeli civilians is an object lesson on the so-called Palestine question. Those who would celebrate such a cowardly act are savages. No one can imagine Washington´s troops firing shots to celebrate a supporter of American independence trying to kill a group of Royalist civilians. During the Cold War, U.S. support for Lech Walesa´s Solidarity would have dried up if he handed out candy after a Polish nationalist targeted, say, innocent Muscovites going to work. We may live in a complex world, but evil is identifiable even
Islam IS NOT compatible with Western Civilization. Sadly, there seems to be a majority of liberal/progressive thought infected citizens who think differently. I fear for my Country and my way of life....
The truth in this article should be all we need to know regarding who the bad guys are in this situation. How the world can ignore this evil is beyond comprehension. It makes no logical sense. However, this might explain at lot to those who believe the Bible.
Genesis 16: 11,12
11 The angel of the Lord also said to her: "You are now pregnant and you will give birth to a son. You shall name him Ishmael, for the Lord has heard of your misery.
12 He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone´s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers."
They are running short on money. Soooooo -- they start the raining of rockets on Israel. Israel responds with some serious answers. hamas and egypt cry and obama sends in the shrew to load their pre/paid cash card...
Hope Israel got a few licks in before the obama/sell/out....
As we know from 9/11 (both of them), the Hamas savagery is not limited to the Israeli conflict, it is aimed at us too. Until the West openly acknowledges that Islam is antithetical to civilized human society and acts accordingly, murder and mayhem will continue.
It is not that they are savages, it is that they have been exposed to civilization, yet they choose savagery.
Judaism and Islam alike (also Christianity) require acts and donations to "charity" yet we describe it as helping anyone in need and the savages describe it as helping convert those in need to Islam and only allow help if it will further Islam.
Every word of Shari´a "law" violates some portion of our Bill of Rights, yet the "mulitculturalists" among us say that their culture is equal to our own, and acquiesce to the savages´ desire to implement their savagery within our country.
It is foolish to argue or negotiate with people who fire machine guns straight up into the air to celebrate anything. Best to just watch the destruction from afar or on TV when the bullets come straight back down.
Hint...that is why they invented helmets and they offer better protection than dirty rags wrapped around your heads. Heathens.
Hard to imagine why we would inject ourselves into conflicts in any Muslim nation. The more they kill each other, the fewer we will ultimately have to deal with. I sse little difference between these animals and their counterparts on the plains of Africa. Their apologists need to be immersed into those areas of conflict and we could effectively "kill two birds with one stone". Sympathy? Empathy? Not one shred.
I would keep all those troops in place and the first time the broke the treaty i would move in like the original plan, these people understand nothing, peace treaty my eye, they are a little above an ape in intelligence and I hate to insult an ape.,..
THE DREAM OF owning a winery is one that many may harbor but few are actually able to fulfill. The expense is considerable and the odds of success are incredibly long. Yet the list of actors and athletes, financiers and film directors who aspire to see their name on a label simply goes on and on. (Snip)Even though Manuel Pires was born in Portugal´s Douro Valley wine region, he aspired to own a winery in Napa Valley from his very first visit, many years ago. Why not in the Douro? "Because I am an American," replied Mr. Pires, whose family
A Wal-Mart worker died early Friday after an "out-of-control" mob of frenzied shoppers smashed through the Long Island store´s front doors and trampled him, police said. The Black Friday stampede plunged the Valley Stream outlet into chaos, knocking several employees to the ground and sending others scurrying atop vending machines to avoid the horde. When the madness ended, 34-year-old Jdimytai Damour was dead and four shoppers, including a woman eight months pregnant, were injured.
Vice President Biden promoted local economic development Thursday, and also weighed in on the Senate dispute over filibuster. (Snip)Biden, a Delaware native, visited the new Capriotti´s outpost in downtown Washington, D.C., for a takeout order to be consumed during lunch with Obama at the White House. The vice president paid $56.25 cash for his order. Republicans quickly pointed out that Biden opposed filibuster changes back when Democrats were a minority in the Senate.
Senate Democrats bowled over Republicans on Thursday to win approval for a highly controversial rule change which would limit the GOP´s ability to block nominees. Majority Leader Harry Reid, moving quickly following days of speculation, used the so-called "nuclear option" to pass the change. Typically, major changes like this take 67 votes, but he did it with just a simple majority.(Snip) The late Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., said in 2010 that changing the rules would "destroy the uniqueness of this institution." "In the hands of a tyrannical majority and leadership, that kind of emasculation of the cloture rule would mean that minority
SARASOTA, Fla. — Sarasota police say the husband of former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris was found dead of an apparent suicide at the couple’s home. Police spokeswoman Genevieve Judge said Tuesday that Harris’ husband, Anders Ebbeson, committed suicide. Officers were called to the home between 7:30 and 8 a.m. Tuesday. During a news conference at the police station, Pastor William Hild of Sarasota First Baptist Church confirmed that Ebbers had taken his own life. Ebbers was a Swedish businessman. Hild, the family’s pastor, says Ebbers suffered from health issues in recent years.
Golf’s governing bodies eliminated penalties for violations detectable only through video evidence such as one that cost Tiger Woods two strokes in a PGA Tour playoff event this year. The rule change, one of several announced today, follows cases where players had been penalized for an infraction only seen when reviewing high-definition replay, often after a television viewer alerted officials. The groups delayed a decision until 2016 regarding the appropriate penalty for instances when a player turns in an incorrect scorecard when unaware that a penalty had occurred. This allows television viewers and others to continue to call in potential penalties they
LANHAM, Md. - Virginia State Senator Creigh Deeds is in critical condition and his son is reportedly dead following an assault at his home in Milboro, Va. early Tuesday, reports CBS D.C. Deeds, a democrat, has reportedly been flown to the University of Virginia Medical Center with serious injuries sustained during the assault. According to the station, Virginia State Police say authorities responded to the residence around 7:25 a.m. The senator´s son, Gus, was found dead from a gunshot wound at the scene according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay

Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
