#2899545 American Journalist James Foley beheaded on camera by ISIS militants.

Posted by Harris Aballah on Yesterday, 08:36 AM

I never understood why journalists think being apart of the press will protect them. If your news organization thinks the story is that important it shouldn't that big of a deal to hire "private security".

 Foley was well aware of the dangers he faced. He was kidnapped in Libya in a similar event. They just didn't execute him, of course. But the guy seemed passionate about telling the story of the innocent victims of ongoing mid east conflicts. Just as soldiers are willing to give their lives for a greater cause. So was he. Though, I doubt he ever planned on becoming a pawn in an international conflict?

That was a nice surprise last night. Good to see the man doing work like he used to. 




#2887648 Shooting in Missouri sparks protests, looting

Posted by Harris Aballah on 12 August 2014 - 11:22 AM

Was not intended. Those who was I referring to know who they are, that is something they have to figure out within themselves.

 

Honestly things like this always bring out the worst in people, and really show just much progress we have really made in this country, which isn't as much as some think. Just look at the thread title. More focus is on black people doing bad things than the kid who lost his life.

I have been a victim of police brutality on more than one occasion. But to be honest I wasn't making their job any easier. The truth is that if the media only highlights what's bad in the world you will never see what's good. I know first hand that there are bad, crooked cops. But I know they aren't all like that. Unfortunately, they have a brotherhood like mentality, just like the perps they pursue. So they do tend to stick together even if they're in the wrong. But so do the perps.

 It's a cat & mouse occupation for both sides of the law. And there will always be tragedy so long as we are willing to enable street crime with funding from the illegal drug trade. So long as we continue to advocate the gang culture with pop culture. And so long as we are willing to paint our servicemen and women in a negative light every chance we get.

 I feel like American's can't see the big picture because it's not being painted for them anywhere. That or there's too many people out there who carry pre-conceived notions and are not willing to see anything else? But mostly, I believe reality is perception, and what we are all seeing these days is bullsh%t. And most of us know it. But we are not seeing anything else out there. The media just wants a knee-jerk reaction out of people. and they sure as hell got one this week in st. louie. It's like having inter-active news.

#2877443 GOP-lead House Panel: House panel: No administration wrongdoing in Benghazi a...

Posted by Harris Aballah on 05 August 2014 - 01:51 PM

So the repubs dream up this entire conspiracy\scandal. Make it the largest public spectacle that they can, only to prove later that they were incorrect. Why would they do this to themselves? or were they doing it for someone else? perhaps their dem brothers? this way neither side has to explain what I believe to be the meat of this burger all along. Which IMO is the question, " Was the ambassador involved with an illegal munitions campaign that funneled weaponry from Libya to Syria? 

 Though I am glad that the truth came forward in the investigation, I again believe this was all a song and dance to keep the American public diverted away from the real story. Which is probably damaging to both sides of the isle. I could be wrong. But given their track records, I refuse to give any of them the benefit of doubt. in the end the dems win cause they clear their name of wrongdoing, while repubs win with their constituents because they pursued the truth at all costs. Bet they all laugh about it over dinner tonight?

I am glad that the investigation has been conducted, regardless of the findings. I would rather know for sure, then just leave this sort of mess up for constant debate. All of those involved should be happy with the investigation, as it becomes a means to clear their names. I could care less what the truth is, so long as it is discovered. Every citizen in the country should feel the same. Whether you are dem or repub? the truth should always be our priority.

 I am sure the dems here will want to criticize the right for conducting this investigation. But in the end, you should all be happy. Not because your side one, but because the truth was pursued in this country for a change. I am mostly glad to know that our soldiers weren't abandoned by their leadership, in their last hour. I hope in the future people can get passed their political affiliations to get to the truth. These sorts of investigations are necessary regardless of their findings, or political influence. 




#2872986 House wants to send troops to Central America to secure border.

Amazing how much you want Jesus ruling other's lives up to the point people actually need help from his followers.

It's difficult for me to deliberate my position on this subject. As I hope it is the same for others. I do believe and support legal immigration. I do not believe America is equipped to handle the growing volume of this crisis. Nor do I believe we should have to. My position is to reform the countries they are coming from. However, that may be achieved?

 But as far as the kids are concerned? This should be a no brainer on several fronts. These children are, have and will be USED! Used by political pundits on both sides of the isles. As well as the coyotes on the SA side. All these people should be condemned and forced from the power positions they hold. There should be no free passes for those who orchestrated this crisis.

 But as far as these kids go.....? Look at your kids or look in the mirror. And realize that you won a birth lottery. It could've been you swimming in the rio or riding the death train. Or your kids. I don't want to deal with this burden anymore than the rest of you. But, they're here. And that is the reality. And even harsher reality, is that I don't want to sink to the same shameful levels, as the coyotes or pols who thrusted this situation on us.

 The truth is, that many churches and charity groups in Texas have adopted this philosophy already. Unfortunately, the volume of this crisis has already bled most of them dry. So I do agree with the Ninja. Christians all across America do need to do what they KNOW is right. Help these children while they are here. Take your anger and frustrations out to the sources that deserve it. But not on these people or their kids. cause I promise you, that they ( excluding those who enter with criminal intent ) are only doing what you would do if in the same situation.

 I have little faith that our pols will come up with real-world solutions to deal with this crisis. And I do not know what that leaves us. But I know these are people just like you and me. And if we treat them like vermin. We will become the vermin ourselves.




#2871717 Brandin Cooks stealing the show!

Posted by Harris Aballah on 31 July 2014 - 11:44 AM

During Tuesday’s practice, Cooks took a quick bubble screen the distance, and the video of him pulling away from the Saints defense is frankly alarming.

The ability to run more complicated routes will be needed, but the pure speed he showed on the simplest one makes it clear he’s going to be a weapon for Drew Brees soon.

Glad to see we got this guy and not panthers, Jeremy was dead on about how good this guy is! Enjoy KB! Lol

We also adhere to the " Gospel of Luke " in Carolina. Which says, " Thou shalt not run the ball up the middle or throw screens to the wings." Kuke will show him this season, if they try that weak sh%t on us? He'll be " Brandin Cooked" when we get done with him! 




#2871688 House wants to send troops to Central America to secure border.

Posted by Harris Aballah on 31 July 2014 - 11:18 AM

Are you responding to me?

 

If so, please stop.  I never beat the drum for any of these wars.

 

Also, I have no problem helping these kids.  However, I wonder how France would like it if we just sent a couple container ships full of poor kids from here and dropped them off at the border.

 

 

I want to help them, I'm just not sure how to help them.

Maybe, if we turned our attention and compassion towards the countries they are coming from? If the cartels have created such a problem in these countries? Why can't we take measures to cripple their operations? Like legalizing drugs? 

 Before anyone throws a fit, answer this; Who would you rather regulate the recreational drug industry....,The FDA or the Latino cartels? Legalization would actually introduce credibility into the ops that we have never been able to shut down, let alone, make a dent in. It would introduce real jobs to those regions. It would take the corruption elements out of those governments significantly. Which would incentivize the cartels to become involved in the free enterprise markets. As well as the regulations implemented in the system. Reducing slave labor and criminal enterprise in the SA's would be a great start to helping those kids.

 if we were more concerned with the tyranny they face in their homelands and not the potential voting prospects of these people? perhaps, they would choose to go home on their own? But as long as we continue to enable their leadership, and influential powers of criminal enterprise to rule the day? This problem will continue to grow annually. Thus, we will be arguing over what to do with the next 120,000 children whom enter the country next year.

 




#2861814 The downsides of being rich

Posted by Harris Aballah on 23 July 2014 - 10:32 AM

Sometimes I look at the wealthy and just imagine how they would react if they woke up 1 morning and all the ATM's were down? I picture it as an opposite version of " the god's must be crazy". I don't look down on people becoming wealthy. But I cannot deny that most become dependent on their wealth, like having money is a survival skill. Mo' money, Mo' problems, right?




#2861087 conflicting rulings on major ACA provision

Posted by Harris Aballah on 22 July 2014 - 01:47 PM

Republicans trying to gut ACA subsidies to families that need assistance to have access to health care.  5 million could lose insurance due to a typo, and 10,000s of people may end up dying due to lack of access to health care, but FUG IT THEY MAY STICK IT TO OBUMMER!!!!

 

 

 

http://www.nytimes.c...idies.html?_r=0

A typo in a bill that the dems wrote is the repubs fault? this is 1 of those cover fire things I was just talking about in the other thread. and this ruling came from the supreme court. Not congress.

I like the ACA less than I like repubs. Mostly because I am a working class citizen in the private sector. There is nothing that favors me in that bill. Dems put out a 2000 page bill full of typo's and errors. the next time they want to use American's health as a bargaining chip, they might want to use a thesaurus when they write the bill.




#2861066 As you have grown up have you become more liberal or more conservative?

Posted by Harris Aballah on 22 July 2014 - 01:25 PM

We fight too many wars.

 

We worry about who is sleeping with who too much.

 

We are taxed too much.

 

We hand out too much money, both to our citizens and other countries.

 

We are pretty uneducated in politics, and allow a TV commercial to sway our thoughts.  (American Public)

 

 

Something I say on the reg, is "Get out of my bedroom, and get out of my wallet".  And I mean that.

 

The two party system is all about turning us (Americans) against each other.  That way we fight each other on what a woman can do with an unborn child, and not kick their lazy asses out of DC.

 

We need serious campaign finance reform and term limits.  We need to get the government out of banking/housing etc.

 

We need to get the debt down immediately, and I (strangely enough am OK with raising taxes to do so, but only if they cut spending by 2-3 times what the increase in taxes would be.

We need more taxpayers, not tax hikes. We need people to be able to go back to work. The rest I agree with.




#2860858 As you have grown up have you become more liberal or more conservative?

Posted by Harris Aballah on 22 July 2014 - 09:53 AM

Human being 1st. American 2nd. Other than that, I refuse to brand myself with any stereotypes. These days you have to be all in. If you are a dem, you adhere to their rules and beliefs. Same for repubs, gays, blacks, whites, asians, legal or illegal mimmigrants, religious types, or whatever people are concreting themselves into these days. If you step out of line you are either a traitor, sell-out, uncle tom or whatever demeaning name the affiliations can drag you down with. United we stand, divided we fall. I used to believe that. Not so much as I get older.
