This crooked hag should retire and count her ill-gotten gains, give the public a rest from her incessant political lies. She just makes me believe that those Californians who keep sending her back to represent them must be as crazy or stupid as Californians are stereotypred as being. That being the case, it's little wonder that the once Golden State is now slipping down the order of important economies on its way to bankruptcy.
Well that is what they are doing. They think they really can destroy Israel by a combination of nuke first then conventional power, being 10 x Israel's population in a huge country then if the United States is still standing by, as it will be under Obama, it will launch whatever it can against it, maybe from a freighter close by or some ally like Venezuela. Presumably but not certainly, the U.S. response would be overwhelming and that would'nt worry the mad mullahs, because they need the world to be "washed in blood" in order to hasten the return of their Mahdi (12th Imam, Hidden Imam, take your pick). Remember please, these really ARE mad mullahs, this is not a rational regime like the Soviets used to be, this time it really IS different.
You arrived at what I believe to be the correct conclusion, Ms. Hagelin. If, however, you were to ask a pious Muslim whether or not he could ever vote for a non-Muslim, you would be greeted either with incredulity at the question, or more likely, rage, the usual Muslim response to anything unknown, although in reality they are brainwashed that only Allah can govern Man through Sharia Law, hence the whole idea of democracy to a Muslim is blasphemy. It's a pity nobody told G.W..
You forgot to tell us it should be "it's different from." Americans really have screwed up English, but then, so have the modern, semi-literate English. Notice however, the hearteningly correct omission of the apostrophe in "its private businesses ." Remarkably few these days understand that one does not apply the possessive apostrophe to pronouns. That having said, it's quite likely he dictated this piece anyway.
I think you are wrong. Extremism certainly has caused a lot of bad stuff, but the Christians I meet have been, without exception, very cordial and pleasant folk who only are sad when they learn of my own atheism. Christianity gives people a life structure that benefit many and certainly regular churchgoers live, on average, happier and even longer lives than others like me who don't even engage in dangerous behaviour. It's difficult to explain. I agree with you over some of the extremists you name, but they are not Christianity, which has seen the worst days of its own extremism in centuries past and is now reformed. Now the threat is Islam, which is still red in tooth and claw. Extreme ideology of any kind breeds fanatics, beware of it.
Thanks get real4. It doesn't suit Pawlenty. In my culture, "tats" can mean potatoes, but why he should have threatened to show them to anyone made even less sense than ZombieLove below.
I must admit, seniors tend not to jump for every passing fad, in speech or otherwise.
I don't even have the slightest idea what a tat is.
Thorium reactors could be just about the perfect answer, or as near as one can expect. Inherantly safe, produce little waste, fuel widely available for centuries to come and the Indians seem to have cracked any remaining technical problems remaining with them. Overcome the ignorance factor (they're still nuclear) and we'll be there. Many still won't forsake their green religion though, because religion is about faith, not reality.

Equating Israel's government with that of Iran is absurd. Israel's government is concerned to avoid another holocaust at any price, while the mullahs in Iran are proclaiming that "the world must be washed in blood" in order to hasten the return of their Mahdi or Hidden Imam who will rule over the triumph of Islam. Frankly, Mr. Chapman, you are either being deliberately deceitful or you have just emerged from under a rock.

You ignore the fact that Iran is geographically as well as numerically huge compared to Israel. If Iran lost 7,000,000 people the population would still be almost the same size, if Israel lost 7,000,000 people it would be empty. Furthermore, Iran is governed by lunatics who are perfectly prepared to sacrifice themselves as well as their people in order to destroy Israel.
