I just don't get why people on both sides get so upset over this topic.
To me, it is simple.
inquiringmind...your joking right....if they come here we should just use you liberals as sand bags to protect the rest of us. Since you guys are so guilty about the Mid East you can sacrifice yourselves.
Has this country ever been right about anything according to you liberals? Do you liberals always get it wrong?
I don't give a damn about what happened anywhere else, ISIS is directly threatening us and will not reason with anyone, especially you liberals. I'll bet they laugh their asses off when you guys defend them all the time knowing if they could get their hand on you they would "fatwah" your butts. You guys would be the first to have your heads cut off.
If it comes down to our culture over their culture then you damn right we should pick ours. We need to kill as many as it takes to make them leave us alone. If you libs were the least bit pracitical we could develop our own oil reserves and tell these Arabs to eat sand.
You guys are beyond stupidity. You don't even understand the problem. Muslims treat women like animals, cut people's hands off for stealing, put gays to death, and don't give a damn about human rights of any kind. They are so anti-liberal it hurts and you defend them.
Have we made some big mistakes? Yea...but our culture let's an imbecile like you bloviate this drivel without repercussions. In Iran you would be one dead SOB. That is just "a little different" than our culture.
By the way..I don't drink, I guess you lack of understanding might be attributed to that weed you just smoked.
Chuckie is what he is.. not exciting...but consistent.
Pam...on average 52 people die from lightning strikes in the US. You better stay inside since you are 52 times as likely to die from lightning than Ebola.
The people you need to worry about are the 3000 troops we sent to Africa to "stop" Ebola. I am sure that there will be quite a few of them die from it.
Just more proof of what an idiot you really are.
Irrational fear is in the eye of the beholder. If you look at things statistically, the only things significant we need to fear are normal everyday occurrences. The flu, driving, cancer, heart disease, etc. but we go right on drinking while driving, smoking, eating cheeseburgers, etc. It is the rare things that seem to scare us. For example, Aids was hyped as something to fear but for heterosexuals it was rare. Liberals and gays tried to portray it as a threat to heterosexuals to increase funding. It was not a significant threat and neither is Ebola.
My problem here is that the head liberal, Obama, has just sent 3000 troops to Africa to counter something that is not a "threat." Only 3600 Africans have died from Ebola. We are sending basically one soldier per death over there. There is no doubt that there will be some fatalities in our troops from Ebola.
Now, let's compare that to ISIS. Almost everyone says ISIS is a threat. Unlike Ebola, they are killing thousands and thousands of Muslims and Christians. They have even killed more Americans than Ebola. Why isn't ISIS worth 3000 ground troops? If you used Obama's ratio of one soldier for one death like Ebola, we would be sending 100,000 troops tomorrow.
Could it be racist? Does a black president and liberals in general think that blacks lives are more important than Middle east Muslims and Christians? It sure looks like it.
If you liberals weren't completely incapable of abstract thought, you wouldn't be making these asinine comments.
ibshame...Aids was never a heterosexual threat of any kind. That was hyped due to the large numbers of gays that were contracting it. When the normal sex organs are used, man/woman, there are biological safeguards. When it is anal sex, there is not. It is 18 times more likely to get aids from anal sex than vaginal sex.
Gays and the media had to portray it as a heterosexual threat to get increased funding for research. We need a cure but let's be honest, normal heterosexual sex is not a significant aids transmitter.
If I knew that stopping something that might kill me, I would do it. That seems to be pretty simple.
How arrogant to think that WE can stop Ebola at any time, anywhere. There will be casualties in the 3000 troops sent to Africa to fight Ebola. When that happens, it will be on Obama.
If this wasn't Africa and these people weren't black, Obama wouldn't have done one thing...
This is just not the business of the commission. I think it was revealing that Fairbanks and Medley's answer to why they voted for this stuff was that "hundreds of calls were in favor." In other words they put their fingers to the political winds. If they felt strongly about abortion, why didn't they just say that it was murder pure and simple.
I am one conservative that doesn't want government legislating morality or group behavior. I want government out of my business period. First of all, they never should have had a vote (waste of time). Second I don't want that bunch of below average political hacks telling me what to do.
This kind of thing makes conservatives look bad.
Yes on Amendment 3 but your definition of what defines conservatives is dead wrong. Not everyone has to meet your standards of conservatism. I think it is conservative to mind your own business and keep the government out of my business.
Cook...you are just a bizarre individual. I would ask this victim the same questions. Is raping anyone ok? NO....but in some cases the victim took unwarranted risks that contributed to the opportunity for rape.
Here are some things that I think just might be a little risky. Going into a lion cages with a steak strapped to your groin....going down East Main at 2 am with $100 dollar bills hanging out your pants,....and walking around drunk at 2 am in a mini-skirt and a bikini top....running down West Mississippi avenue in the early morning....duh..
Just because someone is raped doesn't relieve them from just being stupid. Pointing out that they were stupid because their behavior might have caused a bad thing to happen is not wrong.
In every situation, you have to be aware of your surroundings and be ready. Pointing this thing out is not sexist but Cook ignoring it is sexist. You can't fall off the mountain if you don't climb it.
Cook...are you just an idiot or our your columns some sad joke?
