  • POLL - 9/11 conspiracy theorists multiply (GIANT moonbats in full flight alert!)

    "...there's no way that Bush and Cheney could have invaded Iraq without the help of 9/11."

    Never mind that none of the hijackers were Iraqis, all the hijackers came from countries we are not at war with, and the invasion didn't happen until a year and a half after 9/11.

    "Then there's the collapse of the twin towers, which Jones, the physics professor, timed at just short of free fall.

    From the Towers' height of about 1360 feet, it would take 9.22 seconds for them to be in free fall. In reality, it took about 17 seconds. Not what I'd call "just short" of free fall.

    But what about all those New Yorkers who saw airplanes hitting the twin towers? ... he says. "You hire three dozen Actors' Equity dudes and they'll say anything."

    This is one of the nuttiest things of all. If someone in government used explosives to bring down the towers, they wouldn't need planes to hit the towers. They wouldn't need images of planes hitting the towers. They wouldn't need to hire actors to claim they saw planes hit the towers. If they wanted to destroy the rowers as a pretext for a war with Iraq, they'd just blow them up, claim it was Iraqis who did it, and leave it at that.

    perverted behavior by Democrats because that is what everybody expects from Democrats.

    The Republicans must never sink to that level.

    I don't believe in applying double standards.

    That could be a tad dangerous. A family member short of cash could get ideas...,

    So what? If John kills Joe for his organs, that would be no more immoral than John's killing Joe for, say, his car. Yet the idea of making the sale of Joe's car illegal to prevent John from committing murder would be silly. So, why should the sale of his body parts be any different?

    And if Joe is already dead, then he doesn't need those organs any more, anyway.

    a Canadian woman was giving birth to four children at once (what are the odds of that? very long!). She crossed the border into the U.S. to have her quartuplets.

    Last year, Silvio Berlusconi, the Prime Minister of Italy, needed heart surgery. He didn't get it in France or Britain or Canada or even his own country. He came to the United States for it.

    Someone's serving in the military decades ago doesn't make them a lifelong patriot. Even Benedict Arnold was a General in the American military during the Revolutionary War.

    I'm not accusing Warner of treason, but if he was acting out of patriotism, he would have made his views known to the President in private, not plastered on network TV for the whole world, including our enemies, to see.

    “No military surge, no matter how brilliantly performed, can succeed without political reconciliation and a surge of diplomacy in Iraq and the region,” Obama intoned.

    When the Dims see evidence of success, they just move the goalposts further away.

    No matter what the success is, it will never be good enough for them.

    Conservatives would be galvanized to fight HRC’s leftist agenda, whereas we’d be told to “go along” with Rudy’s similar legislation.

    Bull. That's the same loser strategy we heard in '92. Conservatives did not re-elect Bush 41, and they galvanized against Clinton. Lotta good that did. We ended having to deal with two terms of him, and we're still cleaning up after his mess.

    I do not relish a scorched earth from Hillary, just to conservatives can rally against her.

    100 per cent "Chavista" after the opposition boycotted the 2005 elections.

    A similar fate could happen here under Hillary, if conservatives decide that neither Rudy nor Mitt are good enough for them and boycott the 2008 elections.

    Reminds me of an old lymeric:

    There once was a fellow named Bright
    Who could travel faster than light.
    He went out one day, in a relative way
    And came back the previous night.

    Polls of Iraqis consistently show that they want the U.S. out. Heck, even Maliki said so!

    This attack may change their minds. Since it occurred in an area where there are very few, if any, Americans at all, it may give the Iraqis who want us out a taste of what would happen if we just packed up and left.

    What makes it worse is that they usually line up in a way that it's like having to walk through a gauntlet, while they shove these fliers at you. And a lot of those fliers end up on the ground, so there's litter all over the place.

    I sure miss the Vegas of 30 years ago.

    Bringing children into a casino is no different than bringing them into a bar or a nightclub. These are playgrounds for adults only; children don't belong there.

    Like any other city, Las Vegas has places for children to have a good time, but casinos aren't among them.

    I really DID NOT LIKE about Vegas was that it promotes itself as a site for family entertainment. I saw many families walking up and down the strip at midnight with pre-school and school age children. There was more than one place that we passed that advertised strip clubs and live entertainment of the seediest quality.

    I go to Vegas quite often, and I have no problem with adults gambling. But what always bothers me is the parents who bring their kids along with them.

    Maybe they think that a vacation in a Vegas casino is like a vacation in Disneyland and see no problems pushing strollers around the slot machines, roulette wheels, crap tables, ..., but children don't belong there.

    In 1995, people were killed when a bridge in southern California collapsed.

    By Patty's reasoning, that was Bill Clinton's fault.

    I remember the 60's and 70's, the massive marches on college campuses, the riots in the streets, cities burning..., over the Vietnam War. George McGovern tried to tap into that anger and ran for president on an anti-war platform in 1972. Given all that, one would have thought he'd win in a landslide. Reality: he lost every state but one.

    In spite of the war's unpopularity, there just isn't the anger there used to be, other than from the far left. What few anti-war protests we're seeing are, by historic standards, rather pathetic.

    Dims may be trying to cultivate that anger. But IMHO, if they push it too far, they'll end up in the same place that McGovern did. And considering their presidential candidate field is kissing up to the loons at Kos, that's exactly where they're going.

    The rating for Congress are low but that is because the Dem’s are angry with them for not pulling out of the Iraq action.

    If that was true, then people like Tammy Duckworth and Ned Lamont would have won their elections, Joe Lieberman would have lost, Nancy Pelosi wouldn't have had to bribe members of her own party to vote her way on her Iraq vote, Cindy Sheehan would be a star in the Democrat party, and President Bush's approval ratings would be less than that of Congress.

    All the left has to do there is promise to bring the boys home, and it will win in a walk.

    I disagree. If such a promise would yield a "win in a walk", then Dennis Kucinich and Hillary Clinton would have switched places among the Democrat field that's running for President.

    While I don't trust Hillary as far as I could throw her, she has made no such promise, the loons on the left hate her, and she's far out in front among the Dems.
