"...deal of training that the separatists do not have." I have heard this statement several times the last week and it cannot be verified, of course. YOU don't know that they don't have the training, Paul! Who do you think manned those weapons when the military had them in their possession? Just ordinary grunts, sergeants, corporals, low ranking officers! You don't know--it's quite possible some of the separatists had been in the military and had manned those systems when they were in the military. You just don't know, Paul, do you? Well then shut up until you do know. As far as who has something to gain or lose from this tragedy...maybe it was just a mistake, a horrible horrible mistake, like when the US's $500million air defense system shot down an Iranian airliner...BY MISTAKE.
typical liberal response, ad hominem attack (look it up if you don't know what it means). How about address something RP said directly and attempt to refute it, as I am trying to do (the comment posting isn't going too well here...lots of "wait ..wait...wait").
There must be something mentally wrong with the leaders of these so-called churches. They are abrogating the responsibility to help their congregations live moral and ethical lives when they associate with degenerates like this.
oooooo. I'll bet Russia is just shakin' in its boots!
the proof is in the numbers, which overwhelming show an epidemic spreading mostly through the community of homosexual men. One doesn't need to be an epidemiologist to recognize that homosexual men were giving 'it' to other homosexual men. Tell me, if it wasn't sodomy, how was AIDS being transmitted? Rats? Roaches? Lice?
the last one is interesting--So the BSA bans gay scoutmasters? What would stop a homosexual pedophile from lying about his sexuality just so he could become a scoutmaster and get access to young boys, similar to what Jerry Sandusky did? I get your point about the young girls; however, that attitude is a product of our paternalistic culture, of which mores and ethics women use as a cudgel to get whatever they want, when they want it. For instance, a woman can treat you like dirt at work, yet if you respond in kind (as a man), you are called into the boss' office for a tongue lashing and/or 'counseling,' while the woman is comforted and convinced she is a victim. Many women use that to their advantage.
So much for the lie the GOP spreads that these parents are desirable because they are social conservatives. If they have 'family values' then why are they abandoning their children so that others are forced to take care of them?
More addle headed nonsense from a social conservative. Ridiculous. It's not our responsibility nor our humanitarian obligation to take care of every child in the world. We don't have the resources to do it, and it's not even a good idea morally when we continually let countries like Mexico and countries in Central and South America off the hook to do the right things to improve their lives. Force them to take charge of their own lives and their destinies IN THEIR OWN COUNTRIES. Those people aren't coming here to be Americans--they are coming here to avoid taking that responsibility.

If the result here is elimination of BOTH union and corporate monied interests in elections, I am in favor of this Amendment. It does bring up an interesting point in my mind--what happens when one Amendment (28) clearly violates another Amendment (1)? Would the 28th negate the free speech clause in the 1st?

Pretty clever of the government, eh? Get the taxpayers to pay for a renovation that most likely won't be successful, wait for the inevitable decay, then rent the remaining buildings out for more government offices for peanuts.

Urban planners assumed boomers would move to the city once their kids were gone? Whatever gave them that idiotic idea? Really, only a crazy person would VOLUNTARILY move to the rotten cores of any of these metro areas--more crime (getting your car broken into is a 'normal' thing; as is being mugged. Really?), more drugs, bad schools, more Demo-rats, more decay, more ...((add your favorite urban decay here). In my neighborhood, a 'burb, EVERY SINGLE ONE of the parents whose kids graduated from school and left home has MOVED farther out from the urban core, not closer in. I've lived in a large metro area for over 25 years, and in my knowledge I am aware of ONE person who moved into the city from the suburbs. ONE. And dozens who have moved FARTHER from the city core.
