Eating words

March 12, 2014

As Vladimir Putin continues to thumb his nose at President Obama over the Ukraine crisis, I am reminded of the 2012 debate when the president made sport of Mitt Romney's statement that Russia would......

Do we have terrorist sympathizers on this forum? I'd like to think not. Do we have Muslim sympathizers here? Yup!-rmiller

Hello!!, Hope your Day is going Fantastic for you, & Yours!!!!

This(in a nut shell) is what I was hoping to hear from you, it made my day!! Some do not like to see an entire group condemned for the actions of a few. This being said, for the most part,(there are a few exceptions)Muslins are well represented in this area, they seem to be in the Majority. Have a Great day!!!-Thanks for the response!!-Scott

hateful actions at the funerals of our servicemen and women, I get appalled and I try to call it out, when it is addressed. There is a double standard. I said that there are Muslim sympathizers on this forum, I'm not certain I said there were terrorist sympathizers here. I want to believe there aren't. I hope this clarifies my thinking. Like any of us, this jet disappearance at this juncture is speculation only.

I am suggesting to you that with the issue of the passports, the cameras catching two middle eastern appearing men, appearing to board this massive jet, "might" have something to do with its disappearance. When the men that destroyed the lives on 911 walked amongst us and went about their daily lives, would any of us have known them and their intent by just passing by them? Many people won't speak to this issue for fear of being labeled a bigot. I look at the Muslim women who are still garbed in our country and I want to scream, "You are in a free country," you don't have to dress like that." But, then I read somewhere, or hear somewhere in this world a Muslim woman blew herself up while taking the lives of innocent people. The Muslims who sincerely want the freedoms and benefits that America offers, need to call out those who don't. And, they don't, which begs the question, why not? If someone calls themselves a Chrsitian, and I hear about ludicrous, hat

Scott, Hello to you too! As I look at your response, I'm thinking...well...Scott certainly isn't one, he's quick to defend himself. I don't equate terrorists and Muslims, but I do equate terrorism with Muslims. At least as far as I can recall in these 60+ years, terrorism is primarily linked with Muslims. We have, after 911, forgotten our enemies roots. Not all terrorists are Muslim, and not all Muslims are terrorists. The 911 hijackers, however trained in this country and resided here at our "tolerance" zone for some time before they took the lives of some 3000 people. Do we have terrorist sympathizers on this forum? I'd like to think not. Do we have Muslim sympathizers here? Yup!

Hello rmiller!!

I hope you are feeling better!! I just have to ask--Where did this statement:"you have Muslim sympathizers here." come from?? Sympathizers in which way?? I sincerely hope you do not think anyone(at least that I can think of)that posts here would be "Pro-Terrorist". We have disagreements, but I truly cannot believe that any would fit into that frame of mind.-May God Bless you, & Have a Great evening!!!-Scott

Nobody,

Don't take things personal on this forum with respect to disagrees. First of all, like you....I see this as a serious issue. Me thinks that with the possibility (please note the word, "Possibility" of this being a terrorist act, you have Muslim sympathizers here. So, you will get "disagrees" and actual avoidance of this subject matter. some won't comment because we (the world) can only speculate what transpired. Thinking back to 911, until they find this plane, it's truly unnerving.

Change of subject:

Congress has passed legislation to halt rate increases in the federal flood insurance program for many homeowners in hazard zones nationwide.

The measure easily cleared the Senate by a vote of 72-22 after the House overwhelmingly approved it last week.

The bill now goes to President Obama, who is expected to sign it.

But everyone is not happy.

Critics say taxpayers will end up footing the bill for the financial troubled program, which is $24 billion in debt.

"Artificially reducing rates doesn’t reduce risk," said Ryan Alexander, president of the nonpartisan government watchdog group Taxpayers for Common Sense. "Highly discounting severe loss years does not make their costs disappear."

I got POUNDED with disagrees on this one. I know it's not on subject, but don't any of you realize the potential significance of this.....even in Williamsport.

It's already been called the biggest aviation mystery since Amelia Earhart.

Go ahead, pound away:

PAY ATTENTION please to something OUTSIDE OF WILLIAMSPORT and left verses right:

That Malaysian plane made a 90 degree left turn over the ocean. Computers don't make that "mistake", humans do. Thus, whatever the end of the story is, somebody in that cockpit made a left turn.

Therefore, human intervention at the minimum.

Scott36, try qando(dot)net. They also have numerous links to other sites. Drudge is a pretty balanced source of links to articles.

In the evening, I listen to Mark Levin via IHeartRadio.-Ritty77

He is an interesting man to listen to.(when I get the chance) He at times gets himself in trouble with the "Rank & File" Conservatives.-Scott

"Personally, I get most of my information from non-partisan web sites; mostly libertarian." —Underpants

When I'm on the road during the day, I listen to Beck and Limbaugh on the radio. In the evening, I listen to Mark Levin via IHeartRadio. These are partisan, of course, but they discuss the GOP's failures about as much as the Dems, especially Levin.

Scott36, the same thing can be said about the left.-underwood

To a point, I agree. However where do you consider the Left's info(talking points) to come from?? If you mention MSNBC, I have seen many disagreements on there(have not turned it on for quite awhile, HATE Mathews), they do not seem to be in TOTAL lock step with each other.JMO-Scott

Personally, I get most of my information from non-partisan web sites; mostly libertarian. If something is going on like the recent plane disappearance, I’ll turn on Fox News because I really do believe they are more balanced than the others.

Scott36 & Johnny, I didn’t get it from talk radio because I don’t listen to talk radio.-underwood

The point I was trying to get across to you, & Capricorn1 in a previous thread,(pointed out here) is that one does not have to "tune in" to the radio to ape it. It rips through the Con/TP crowd like wildfire. Through decades of conversing with people from the Right, it is VERY RARE for one to admit to listening to AM radio, yet they know the "talking points" by heart. Guess they just all think the same.(been told that) Amazing!!!-Scott

Cairo-University-6-04- 09

"Given our interdependence, any world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will inevitably fail." With this phrase, Obama dismissed the notion of American exceptionalism, the belief that the United States occupies a special place among nations. Obama clearly doesn't see the United States as a "Shining City upon a Hill" or its history, constitution or way of life giving it special qualities or responsibilities in the world.

Surely Phil, if he said it, it would definitely be in the internet, somewhere. There are so many anti-Obama sites that would relish a statement like that. There are so many republicans waiting to pounce on Pres. Obama. You don't think Ted Cruz would have jumped on an opportunity like that?

Admit it. You were trying to smear the President. When called out on the carpet, you were unable to provide any evidence because there is no evidence. It was just your dislike for our President and a wish to stir up your base here is the reason you said it.

Scott36 & Johnny, I didn’t get it from talk radio because I don’t listen to talk radio. It was during the same period our President said he intended to spread the wealth around. He’s said so many things he later changed or denied, I fail to see where anyone can keep up with them, let alone put any stock in what he says.
