Do any of you remember that Al Queda was a small group of extremist Muslims that the US created to harry and discomfit the Soviets when they were occupying Afghanistan? After the Soviets left the small group was abandoned by the US and left to their own devices, although recent information has the CIA having a clandestine relationship with them up to and including 9/11. The point though is that it was a small uninfluential group of mountain based fighters in Afghanistan and possibly Pakistan. Unfortunately the US decided to paint it as the source of 9/11 without allowing anyone else to see the absolute proof of such activity of course. So with the US declaring it to be a terrorist group, its numbers swelled making it very influential!

The word corruption didn't come up once in this article. It should have been mentioned a hundred times.

Finally someone who truly can see the truth and the hubris and hypocrisy that come with it. I hardly expected such an article from this kind of website.
The CBS error is not that it besmirched an American memorial but that it didn't understand the meaning of the downed plane, the evil that it represented, the hubris that it gathered, the pain and suffering of the Vietnamese people that it engendered. It is a sign of shame, shame of an imperial nation that is very willing to inflict death and destruction on any other nation to insure its mastery of the world. It is a shame that will endure forever.
Ms Malkin of course misses the whole point. The fact is that the US requires Mexican cheap labor. Calfornia's agriculture would die on the vine, so to speak, without it. Mexico doesn't need any more cheap labor than it already has, and in fact with the North American trade agreement and the cheap American agricultural products flowing into Mexico (partly with the help of Mexican labor), Mexicans are out of work in the agricultural industry of their own country, as they just can't compete. So you can't have it both ways. Either you say no more cheap labor or you accomodate it. Make up your minds.
What a load of Zionist propaganda this article is. The original Zionists, the Stern Gang and its cohorts were the world's first terrorists and they ethnically cleaned the area now encompassing Israel of its original residents. They did it the hard way and forever earned the enmity of the people living in the Levant. Israel is nothing but a manufactured state, a creation of the UN and as such must legally abide by UN dictates which it hasn't done. it is therefore from an international legal point of view a rogue state and should be treated as one by the rest of the world. President Obama first and foremost holds a responsiblity and duty to the US, to ensure its protection and ethical governance. He owes nothing to Israel, nothing at all.

No matter how hard they try to sound reasonable , right wing conservative extremists just don't seem to be able to reach that goal. The whole basis of this article is reliant upon mistaken perceptions. Marriage has been an important part of society's structure for a few millennia it's true but just look at that institution today. Do you see any kind of permanence in modern marriage? Did you know that up to 50% of marriages currently end in divorce. Statistics can be so cruel when you are attempting to make a false argument based on societal values. We should all be immensely happy that the gays want to marry, it may help offset some of the straight marriage disasters.
There is no end of stupidity in school administration in the US. Too many fools running the educational show.
Your question "is it asking too much" has an answer, yes it is asking too much! President Clinton didn't have eight years of Bush incompetency to clean up after. He had a fully operating economy with what amounts to full employment. There was sufficient tax receipts to do what he wanted to do and still leave Bush a 450 billion dollare budget surplus. President Obama spent his first four years in office attempting to right the ship of state that the former captain had purposely floundered on the rocks, everything from economic and financial chaos to discretionary and treasury draining wars were Bush's legacy, not to mention the horrendous borrowings from China of all places. So as I said before yes it is too much to expect at this juncture.

"Imposing new taxes"? I don't thnk so. They are simply bringing the tax level back to the way it has been for decades before Reagan showed up.
