I rarely if ever see you whiners condemn them. You are always too busy whimpering about Obama. If the truth hurt's I'm sorry.... Well ok, I'm actually not sorry. I like slapping you idiots in the face with reality now and again. Someone has to do it.
YAWN.... Another Ransom diatribe. You know... The war on terror would be over if..... Ransom and others like him would put just HALF as much effort into condemning terrorists as they do in trying to spin things like this into attacks on Obama and members of his administration. But that will never happen.
Bush,Obama and other Muslims HAVE condemned the terrorist attacks. It isn't the religion that is carrying out these attacks. It's the extremists that happen to be Muslim that have carried out many of the attacks.
I could keep posting links... But I think people will get the point. Many Muslins do in fact condemn the attacks.Maybe the question we should be asking is why doesn't the media do a better job of pointing this out ? Why do people like JUndal and other's in fact try to claim the opposite is true ? Why don't we do a better job of acknowledging and condemning the attacks by Islamic extremists on other Muslims ? Many more Muslims die as a result of attacks from these extremists than anyone else. And why was it ok for Bush to try and define the difference between Islam and those that choose to pervert their religion. But it's not ok for our current president to do the same ? 9/11 Condemnations. http://www.muhajabah.com/otherscondemn.php http://www.whyislam.org/jihad-2/worldwide-condemnation-of-terrorism/ http://kurzman.unc.edu/islamic-statements-against-terrorism/ Condemnations of attack in France http://video.foxnews.com/v/3975939504001/american-muslim-community-reacts-to-paris-terror-attack/?#sp=show-clips http://www.voanews.com/content/muslims-worldwide-condemn-attack-on-french-magazine/2591003.html Boston Bombing http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Society/2013/0425/Boston-bombing-US-Muslims-react-with-fear-frustration-and-new-resolve http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2013/04/20/muslim-leaders-condemn-bombing-suspects/ http://www.faithstreet.com/onfaith/2013/04/19/muslim-leaders-we-stand-against-terrorism/21499
This comment about Guam tipping over was made in 2010. Also in 2010 Johnson responded to inquiries into his Guam tipping over statement. Johnson, via his spokesman, responded: “I wasn’t suggesting that the island of Guam would literally tip over,” said Johnson. “I was using a metaphor to say that with the addition of 8,000 Marines and their dependents – an additional 80,000 people during peak construction to the port on the tiny island with a population of 180,000 – could be a tipping point which would adversely affect the island’s fragile ecosystem and over burden its already overstressed infrastructure. “Having traveled to Guam last year, I saw firsthand how this beautiful – but vulnerable island – is already overburdened, and I was simply voicing my concerns that the addition of that many people could tip the delicate balance and do harm to Guam.” Oh.... Obviously.... So now shouldn't we actually be more concerned with those that believed he was being serious ? And are making a big issue out of his statements almost 5 years later.
Yeah, and those led paint chips aren't all that great either. ;)
"We've ignored it, mostly. Like we did in 1969". ??? It's true....Congress did establish much of the basic structure of the Clean Air Act in 1970, and made major revisions in 1977 and 1990. Prior to that the 1955 Air Pollution Control Act was the first U.S federal legislation that pertained to air pollution; it also provided funds for federal government research of air pollution. The first federal legislation to actually pertain to " controlling " air pollution was the Clean Air Act of 1963.The 1990 amendments addressed acid rain, ozone depletion and toxic air pollution. The Great London Smog of December 1952 which killed approximately 4,000 people resulted in the Great London Smog legislation. The first Clean Air Act was passed in 1956 which moved power stations and heavy industry to more rural sites. And any belief that pollution control by industry was voluntary is beyond ludicrous. The vast majority resist it because it cut's into their profit margins. ( sorry Timothy )
Well let's see.... In 1873 more than 700 people died due to air pollution in London. And then there was the Great London Smog of 1952 which killed approximately 4,000. That lead to the first Clean Air Act in 1956. So I guess you could say that death due to air pollution did come between some and the food they ate.
Or could it simply be due to the fact we are back to pumping and refining our own oil at levels we haven't seen since 1980 ? http://www.eia.gov/dnav/pet/hist/LeafHandler.ashx?n=PET&s=MCRFPUS2&f=A
What was sick about ( anything ) I said.... ? Oh, just because I posted some links showing that not all Muslims are terrible people ? Gee, sorry.... Not everyone can embrace a disturbed 12 year olds view of the world. And I happen to be a Christian. One who chooses to speak the truth and not judge or hate people based on race, religion or politics. But rather on each individuals words and actions.
