Again I'll repeat my earlier observance of the complete irony of the conservative right.
The same conservative right who will stop at nothing to protect the rights of unborn fetuses and do everything within their power to outlaw abortion are the same folks who support political ideologies that negatively impact those same children-
* immigration reform: now that you're born, fug you, you can't come here.
* public education policies: we have one of the worst public education programs in the world among industrialized countries, and we're trying to make it worse
* Head Start, Just Say No, No Child Left Behind.... how are those working out?
Yes indeed folks, those same Republicans who will fight to keep you alive until you're born couldn't care less about your meager existence after you're born.
See, Captain is my regular fishing guy. I go out fishing with him 1-2 times a year. He can take me 15 miles out for $500 (5 hours total trip) or 30 miles out for $675 (7 hours total trip). We mostly do bottom fishing for Amber Jacks, Bass, Red Snappers, and etc. Is it worth paying extra $200 for extra 15 miles?
Not when you can hit up any one of many fresh seafood shops and buy same-day mahi for less than $200 and less than 15 miles in a boat to find it.
Most of the charters out of Little River and Myrtle are going full day to the Gulfstream to get to the mahi. Read some of the fishing reports for the area, looks like if you're going to find any mahi (which nobody is really reporting any success), you'll need to head out to 25-30 miles.
Russia is in a position not unlike Iran in the mid-late 70's when the Shah fell out of favor and lost control to the Ayatollah Khomeni. Then they decided to take the U.S. Embassy and the infamous 444 days.
The world then essentially financially isolated Iran into economic hell. The same could be done, but in order to be successful, the US must ramp up its efforts to begin exporting natural gas to Europe.
I'm so tired of these headlines. These people are the scum of the Earth and 2 hours of pain is nothing compared to what HE put the victim, and BOTH families though. I know its not going to happen but we need to take these people behind the courthouse and shoot them. Their families can claim their bodies and that will be the end of it. Enough.
Because, just maybe, we consider ourselves just a little more humane than the criminal?
Maybe we're just a step above the horrible monster he may be?
But, no. We're no better than they if this is the best we can do.
Until Michael Sam makes one of those rare, snot-bubbling hits on someone and we'll all hear some idiot who can't control his fugging mouth say something like, "Who knew a gay player could hit like that?" on national TV.
And, small correction here, Dungy is an Evangelical Christian.
"Dungy is an evangelical Christian and at one point in his coaching career considered leaving football for the prison ministry. Throughout his career, he has remained involved with community service organizations. On March 20, 2007, Dungy aligned himself with a socially conservative organization, the Indiana Family Institute, and openly supported an amendment to the Indiana constitution which would have defined marriage as solely between one man and one woman. Dungy also appeared in a testimonial video on I Am Second, in which he shares his story of his personal relationship with Jesus Christ."
So yeah, talk about someone with an agenda making comments about a media circus.... the only media circus is the one he conjured up.
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.
