I respect and understand her response (link) and I also believe Horowitz has a pretty well-defined agenda, not much of which I agree with. Horowitz attempts to tag Hezbollah, Hamas and the Palestinians in general as "Hitlers" in that they are seeking to essentially remove Jews from the planet.
The student was simply trying to separate the two ideologies, and Horowitz seems bent on lumping everyone together.
If age is how we should determine someones level of wisdom and enlightenment then we would find that old people in general agreeing on philosophy but they don't.
Agreed. As a white male, approaching 60 years old; drawing 2 pensions while still working and very well off financially; retired military man who saw his share of poo over that 20 years, one would think I'm as conservative as John McCain.
There are certain issues I remain rather conservative on- economics, for one. Although I believe we should have a single-payer national health care system.
There are many others, mostly social issues, where I am very much a "liberal."
I spent months in Guadalajara (over the span of 2 years) transferring manufacturing from Charlotte to GDL. Broken spanglish was a friggin magnet. I was told GDL women to men ratio was higher than typical MX (which already has a decent W-to-M ratio).
Be confident and don't be an ass.
My wife is from GDL (happily married 9 years now).
Yep- I'm a magnet when I travel to Mexico couple times a year just because I'm more interested in them and their lives and I try to speak their language and fit in rather than be the "ugly American."
gaza is 139 square miles with a population of nearly 2 million people. your line of argument is repeated often but rarely supported by the evidence. israel has a history of using collective punishment.
also were those kids who were just killed on the beach acting as "security" too?
Israel did not have to give up Gaza to begin with...
...and I'm sorry, but if there is a person or people out there who's sole mission and purpose in life is to annihilate me... yes, I will kill them all.
This is a Brit TV feed, otherwise we'd be seeing virtually every shot Tiger hit and we'd have no idea how well Rory is playing.
Thankfully, with this feed, we're seeing a lot of players on the course, unlike CBS or NBC which will show you no more than 5-6 players the entire round except for the occasional great shot made by someone earlier in the day.
You heard about all these states passing laws to ban gay marriage, loosely based upon some religious belief system, right?
You've also heard about states attempting to legislate women's health issues based upon those same religious beliefs, right?
Most of those laws are getting thrown out one after the other by appellate courts, thankfully. The states who believe they can legislate based upon religious beliefs (mind you, they can only be conservative Christian beliefs- no others welcome) are a bigger threat to Constitutional law in this country than anything brought up by the OP.
My guys are my neighbors, family and friends. And I do not give any of them a free pass when they fugg up either. If the repubs are violating constitutional laws? Then ring the bell. Show me. I will gladly protest their behavior as well.
Invading Iraq and Afghanistan after lying to Congress, the American people and the United Nations?
The Patriot Act?
Arms for Hostages?
How about the most criminal administration ever- the Reagan years? 138 administration officials convicted, indicted and investigated. To this day the record still stands...
