Surfing Snopes for something unrelated and this came up...

I love real 'facts' as opposed to the made up ones from the 'other side'...

The only thing that bothers me about this action, was all the information and pictures that showed with "no doubt", some of the WMD sites. We were to assume these were very recent surveillance
photos. With the technology we have today,and satellites undoubtly ringing Iraq, it does seem hard to imagine that all of these WMD sites could just evaporate away. That is what I think bothers a lot of people.

The 'sites' are still there...

The chemicals and missiles have been moved...

Don't forget the buildup and time that 'we' (read UN) gave Saddam to hide all his fun stuff...

'Go West Young Man'...My guess is that we are seriously looking at Syria...

Could it be that we are being used by israel for their purposes ? Facts show that a lot of the faulty/wrong intelligence info was provided by isreael.

True colours finally show, eh?...

Yet another anti-semite hiding under the skirts of a democrat and calling everyone else intolerant...

Too funny...

Salmoneye, Who Knows Better...

Did you ever wonder why only the Jewish religion have a name for people who speak against them.
Salmoneye, think and learn, do not be a sheeple.

all these people have adgendas of their own .some mean well, some don't have their facts straight and nearly all lie no matter their stripe for political gain.

Yes, such is the life of the career politician. I pay attention only to actions. I'm still waiting for theirs.

Is it me or have they become so full of hatred that they are turning on one another. I am refering to the presidential wannabe candidates. {Please note this is an observation not a condemnation}

These people, the wantabes, have spent their entire career deceiving the people and, in so doing have deceived themselves. The learn early on that winning justifies any action. So, they set out to destroy their competition. And, as far as they are concerned, they do no wrong. And, in keeping with Shakespear's beleif that one should be true to one's self, they are being as true as they know how. For, it is without shame that they stand before the voting public and promise the world and all that's in it. If, and when they fail, they simply say, you should have known better, for I am nothing more than a lying politian. And, what is so very sad is, we don't hold them accountable.

Political ads are specifically exempt from the truth in advertising law. They can say anything they want and the sheeple are stupid enough to belive it. You are right about being true to ones self.

I believe you are correct...

"...several of these quotes were offered in the course of statements that clearly indicated the speaker was decidedly against unilateral military intervention in Iraq by the U.S...."

Okay. They knew about it, worried about it, and talked about it, but did nothing about it. What did they think was going to happen? That he would just decide to quit on his own? Is it just me, or is that kind of like taking the 'ostrich' approach?

Here, here, now. Careful you don't offend some of those supporters of the last administration. For, I have always been of the opinion that the best thing that happened for Bad Boy Bill was that Monica thing. It allowed him to draw other heads into the sand as Ben Ladden and Hussein continued with their own plans without interruption.

64 nations suported the war and 6 countries sent troops

They understood the threat, and basically ignored it till President Clinton found it useful to act against Iraq...

The circumstances of the 'attacks' on Iraq (and what they drew attention away from here at home) are there for anyone that wants to look and has an open mind...

Now they swear that it is President Bush holding a grudge against Saddam...Yet another example of the way that they think...They cannot understand someone NOT holding a grudge, so of course, EVERYONE has to think like they do...They can not understand any other thought process than their own...

So much for the party of tolerance...

Has anyone else noticed also that now that they can't pick at the economy anymore, there is a sudden resurgence of the WMD issue?

I was watching a democratic presidential debate the other night and a question came up regarding paying restitution to descendents of slaves. Which I must admit made me scoff out loud. Three of the (six or seven) candidates swore that it was going to happen immediately if they were elected.

The others made noises that they supported it but didn't give any useful answers as to their intentions.

My Grandfather was a slave to the industrial Revolution. Went into the iron ore mines at 4AM and home a 6PM got pennies a day. He paid his own taxes, food, medical,and clothing expenses. Where is my restitution?

Cindi    Posted 01-14-2004 at 07:29:39       [Reply]  [No Email]
Well, the primary argument I have with this whole restitution thing is that I never owned a slave in my life. Neither did my parents, or my grandparents, and I think it's pretty safe to say that my great grandparents didn't either as they were dirt poor clod hoppers. What the &^!! am I paying for?

To make this really fair, if there is such a thing, go after the desecendents of the slave owners themselves. It's easy enough to find out who they are. Many of them are still rich. That's what they mean when they refer to 'old family money'. Go after Scarlett O'Hara, leave me alone. I don't have nuthin' never did, and probably never will, and I certainly never owned a plantation ya'll.

I understand this whole restitution push is all but dead. Apparently black leaders realized how silly it was, especially when opposed by blacks that have become very successful in life.

Yeah, I mean, prejudice has not always been about being another race. There has been prejudice against being from 'the other side of the tracks' (poor) forever, everywhere. Not that it's right, it's not, but many people have disadvantaged beginnings. That's just the luck of the draw.
