  • Liberals: "We Can Do Anything As Long As We Say We're Sorry"-(Newsweek says,"OOPS" and it's OK?)

    In front of a class of High School students, Harry Reid called President Bush a loser. Then, he said he was sorry. Then, he took his apology back. But, it was alright because he’d already given his sham regret. CBS broadcast a bogus story with bogus documents about President Bush’s Military service. When the fakery of the story was brought to light, CBS finally…sort of…apologized. Now, Newsweek has published an article about our military men and women flushing the Muslim Quran (or portions thereof) down a toilet, in order to intimidate Islamic prisoners. However, the story was and is false!...

    Fort Bragg -- An Army sergeant convicted of murdering two officers in a grenade attack on his comrades in Kuwait quietly said he was sorry Thursday before a military prosecutor urged the jury to sentence the soldier to death because he was an idealogically driven killer. "I apologize for my actions. ... When I did that, I felt my life was in jeopardy, and I had other problems," Sgt. Hasan Akbar told the 15-person military jury. Akbar spoke for less than a minute, making an unsworn statement that could not be cross-examined. He testified in such a low voice that...
  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

His daddy or his handlers could be on the phone in 2 minutes with the Rothchilds and by 1 week, oil prices would be under $20 and gas would be 1 dollar a gallon. You know it and I know it. Why want he? Do you know? Is there sombody we can call? Plaese advice.

    LONDON (AP) - The mayor of London refused to apologize Tuesday for comparing a Jewish journalist to a Nazi concentration guard, a comment that drew anger from Jewish groups and calls for contrition from Holocaust survivors, the government's race-relations watchdog and Prime Minister Tony Blair. Instead, Mayor Ken Livingstone lashed out at the journalist's employer, accusing it of a long history of anti-Semitism and scare-mongering about immigrants. "I have nothing to apologize for," Livingstone told reporters at a news conference. The mayor said he had not meant to offend the Jewish community when he asked Evening Standard reporter Oliver Finegold...

And while many political observers fully expect the power hungry former First Lady to hit the campaign trail within only a few months of being re-elected as a US Senator in 2006, US News & World report claims to have a confirmation of sorts.

    CHICAGO (Nov. 11) - It's a lesson children learn even before their ABCs - say you're sorry when you hurt someone. But it's now being taught in the grown-up world of medicine as a surprisingly powerful way to soothe patients and head off malpractice lawsuits. Some malpractice-reform advocates say an apology can help doctors avoid getting sued, especially when combined with an upfront settlement offer. The idea defies a long tradition in which doctors cultivated a Godlike image of infallibility and rarely owned up to their mistakes. The softer approach, now appearing in some medical school courses and hospital policies,...

  • Muslims: "We are so Sorry for 9-11"?

    09/10/2004 10:42:04 AM PDT · by b2stealth · 14 replies · 747+ views
    Many Muslims, including religious leaders, and “intellectuals” blamed 9-11 on a Jewish conspiracy and went as far as fabricating a tale that 4000 Jews did not show up for work in the World Trade Center on 9-11. Yet others blamed 9-11 on an American right wing conspiracy or the U.S. Government which allegedly wanted an excuse to invade Iraq and “steal” Iraqi oil. After numerous admissions of guilt by Bin Laden and numerous corroborating admissions by captured top level Al-Qaida operatives, we wonder, does the Muslim leadership have the dignity and courage to apologize for 9-11? If not 9-11, will...

    We've grown used to a presidential visit closing aviation facilities but the effect is usually temporary. Las Cruces (New Mexico) International Airport closed one of its three runways indefinitely after George W. Bush's entourage left an indelible mark. A C-17 accompanying Air Force One created ruts more than 2,500 feet long when it backed up to get in position for takeoff there last Thursday. Damage is estimated at $1 million. (Oops.) Airport Manager Theresa Cook told AVweb that the president's travel team was warned that the asphalt runway (in the middle of a Southwest summer day) might not handle the...

Tom Daschle, D-S.D., eight days after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. At least they don't want to see it in Daschle's re-election TV ad that went on the air a week ago.

The Pope talks with Bartholomew I at the Vatican yesterday "In particular, we cannot forget what happened in the month of April 1204," the Pope said, in reference to the sacking of Constantinople by crusaders.

    George Washington and Sheikh Ghazi al-Yawar have much in common, although the only flowing white robes Washington ever wore were Roman togas in epic portraits. Iraq has now reached a point similar, in many ways, to the Constitutional Convention of 1787, when a group of unelected men met to change the course of their country’s history. These similarities bring hope for Iraq’s future. Consider the situation the United States was in prior to 1787. Under the Articles of Confederation, the central government was weak, with local state governments and militias holding much power. The economy was stagnant, much to the...

    Reuters 'sorry' for cribbing figures By David Litterick (Filed: 06/11/2003) Reuters was forced into a humbling apology yesterday as it emerged that the news provider had published official statistics early after one of its journalists got the information from a junior Treasury official with whom he shares a flat. Last month, Reuters published the September retail sales figures, which showed higher than expected growth of 0.6pc, an hour before their formal publication. The news increased speculation about an interest rate rise and hit the gilt futures market. It is understood a Reuters trainee journalist had a conversation with his Treasury...

    LONDON (Reuters) - Criminals could avoid being taken to court if they agree to apologize personally to their victims, under plans outlined by the UK government Tuesday. The proposals -- dubbed "restorative justice" -- could see offenders held to account by their victims, in some cases by-passing the court system, Home Secretary David Blunkett said. "Supporting victims and witnesses better is not just about what happens in the courtroom, it is also about the impact that crime has on their lives," he added in a statement.

Kovacs said Hungary should have asked how the rest of Europe reacted to the document before Prime Minister Peter Medgyessy signed it.

And where he comes from, that's just the way of the world. Cole grew up mostly on the north side of this southeast Louisiana city, in an area known as Delmont Place. It's the tough part of town, where income and property values are low and unemployment and crime are high. The word "mostly" is necessary because Cole has lived in different houses in different hamlets all over this area,...
