You can moan about "fear-mongering," but China deserves our hatred and contempt for far more than just trash-quality products. In spite of their incompetence, and in great part thanks to our own politicians' incompetence / greed, the Chinese campaign to bankrupt our local businesses has been running quite competently. They are highly successful in their massive acts of fraud against individuals (identity theft), businesses (disregard for copyrights and intellectual property) and our government (open acts of espionage). Their abysmal "one child" policy, particularly when combined with an aggressive military strategy, is going to lead to war, sooner or later. Heck, there are increasing reports of kidnapping women from neighboring countries, as the Chinese murdered so many of their little girls.
What is the point of this? We already know that the GOP Establishment has chosen Jebbush as its favored candidate. It doesn't matter what he says - he's a politician, and that means he can and will pander to whatever crowd he faces, lying through his teeth, all the while. We already know that he's a "compassionate, moderate, establishment Republican," just like his father and brother, and has a yellow streak as wide as our open southern border when it comes to the illegal invasion. Just like the rest of the GOP Establishment, he will kowtow to the most extreme Democrats and RINO's when it comes to political appointments, allowing "closet" leftists to take up more positions on the SCOTUS. Expect more fiscal stupidity and miserably-waged wars that will drag on infinitely because our troops will be unable to actually strike down the enemy due to ridiculous rules of engagement. Of course, NONE OF THAT even matters because Jeb is pretty much guaranteed to lose when he runs against Hitlery, a laughable candidate who has nothing to stand on but her sex (not an accomplishment), her last name (if it hadn't been a marriage of convenience in the first place, that might be an accomplishment) and her insane, feminazi politics (only an accomplishment in that anyone still listens to her favorably and takes her seriously).
The French, apparently!
Utterly wrong. The Great Wall of China helped defend the Chinese heartland from Mongol and Manchu raiders for over 200 years. The Manchus only "swept in and took over" when the Chinese general commanding the wall made an alliance with them and opened the gates in an attempt to drive rebels out of Beijing. Walls are an excellent deterrent - they are not perfect, but building a wall, and guarding it, is still probably the best method of keeping people from invading.

Nah, more like the plastic airsoft pellets. Too much "mettle" in BBs for the likes of *itch McConnell.

*itch McConnell should be fired (preferably from a cannon) for proposing this pathetic, mewling surrender. If / when Obama vetoes the DHS Funding / Amnesty Cancellation bill, then let it be on HIS head, should terrorists attack in the meantime. It's not like DHS really has much chance of stopping such an occurrence - they, like any other agency, are more about picking up the pieces afterwards.
If one thousand moslems had shown up for this farce, it would probably have provided excellent cover for a few "militants" to chuck grenades or Molotov's into the synagogue, but that wouldn't make it into the news. But, since only around twenty people showed up and nothing notable happened, the media decided to spin it in moslem favor, anyway!
Hardly relevant. The fact is that driving while either high or drunk should earn you a DUI arrest, and they do, frequently. This is still one of the most common ways that potheads get picked up by cops. The lengths you people will go to, to try to put pot in a favorable light is laughable. "Less bad than alcohol" is not an argument in favor of marijuana, any more than "less bad than tobacco" is. The reality is that your battlecry is "Screw my brain cells and screw my lungs - I have a right to get high!" Buffoons - every one.

Measles, Vaccines and Autism

I’m sorry, but the reason for the resurgence of measles, and many other diseases which were essentially eradicated in our country, is the tide of illegal aliens invading our country, particularly the “unaccompanied minors” of last year. Those “children” (many of whom weren’t children at all) came from their countries, bearing all manner of infectious diseases and parasites. Our government saw fit to distribute them, and their afflictions, amongst our population in public schools, hospitals, shelters and public transportation. Thiomersal / Thimerosal is a mercury-based compound which was commonly used as an anti-bacterial preservative in many vaccines until the year 2000. Theoretically, it is much less commonly-used than it was a decade ago, but it was found to be toxic to human brain cells, even with low levels of exposure, such as that used in vaccines for infants. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21350943) While vaccines may not cause autism, mercury poisoning can cause disabilities similar to autism, (developmental delays, physical deformities, poor muscle control, and damage to the digestive system) particularly if exposure took place during pregnancy. Considering that autism isn’t actually any one thing, (it’s a collection of disorders), and its origins aren’t understood, I think it’s odd that vaccines have somehow been ruled out. In my opinion, we are simply taking the word of a “consensus” of scientists as to the safety of vaccines, a product which is worth billions of dollars to one of the biggest sources of scientific funding available – Big Pharmaceuticals. If a small, private interest group could convince a single doctor to manipulate his findings for the sake of personal gain, who’s to say that a gargantuan private interest group couldn’t create a consensus for the same reason? It’s the same argument used by the global warming alarmists, and definitely not a good one.
The fact that religion is being used as a reason to deny funding to a club is quite obviously contradictory to the 1st Amendment. If a school can't fund one club, then it shouldn't be funding ANY club.
