Quote for the day

"After Al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 Americans, eight years ago on Friday, we went to war and spent hundreds of billions of dollars ensuring that this would not happen again. Yet every two months, that many people die because of our failure to provide universal insurance — and yet many members of Congress want us to do nothing?"

Good article Mr.Infidel to post. Nick really hit's right on the money...heh?

One of the point's about being an offender/convict is a reality (although penal instituion medical treatment for small stuff and done in the wall's themselve's is no picnic...the serious stuff they send the offender outside the wall's to have done)But yeah ... that's a reality that just alot of folk's dont realize.That's why I also say that these so called "death panel's" already exist and have existed in a "sense",and that is so visible that it's unbelievable some of these knucklehead's dont see that. I think alot of these folk's do see it...yet they purposely ignore it and turn their head...because they just plain want to carry out this hostility anywayz...but that's just my opinion.Yes .. I would think the loss of a child would be one of the worst thing's a parent can have to ever experience, I cant even imagine how that must be...never came close.

A few year's back as I recall...there was a case in a California Supreme Court of an offender...I believe convicted of a robbery type offense...who wanted a sex change and to become a woman,they ruled in his favour as I recall. I could go on about California especially with it's financial crisis...I still have family in LA and lived in LA myself.It is thing's like this...and the list goes on...believe me...that California created it's own miseries... again...that's my opinion.

This is also why I didnt consider this invasion of Iraq as being about freedom or liberation...since day one...I simply looked at it as business, and business only...and I was right on the money about the length and cost it appear's...and not one of us are any safer because of it.

Even though this 9/11 attack was such a tragedy to us...I've alway's looked at it as probably aL Qaeda's biggest failure. They have NO VICTORY. When you plan a job like that...for a few year's...put all you have into it, end up with a body count of 3000 instead of at least 50,000+, you didnt win or accomplish nothing... bin Laden of all should feel ashamed if anything for incompetence! Now they have all this extra global "heat" on them (law enforcement/intell)... to me it was a failure!

Time to shut the hell up,thanx...

Well, one would think that this comparison, to 9/11, is something the GOPers would respond to.

One would be wrong. It is not a tragedy when it is perpetrated by our homegrown ruling class on our own people.
