If the FBI wants to be so morally, ethically right, then the next step from them would to be to ban applicants who consume alcohol, nicotine and caffeine as these are mind/attitude altering drugs as well? Where is there conscious? Their morality? Or are they just the typical hypocrites?posted @ Wednesday, January 28, 2015 - 22:12
[quote][b]tomw[/b] - @AbidingDude: All the fact-checking services, including those not beholden to either side, have proven Fox "facts" false, folks.
btw...Michael Moore, The Huff Post, The Daily Kos, Jon Stewart, ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN are not considered ''fact-checking services" by intelligible people. You seemed threatened by Fox News, though. Out of the six big televised news sources, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC leaning heavily to the left while Fox News leans to the right is it that bad that one out of six leans to the right? Maybe it's your leftist views of total control/manipulation of the media (and our country) that doesn't want to hear other views that drives your disdain of Fox News?posted @ Thursday, January 22, 2015 - 21:26

Why does left even try to make intelligent decisions about taxes and capitalism in general? It has to be embarrassing for them as they know nothing about how the private sector works...

@snarkydude: Remember, Obama is the "leaderless leader". He has no skills in foreign policy, leadership nor domestic policy as one would expect of the POTUS. I do not blame him as much for the pathetic state of affairs of the U.S. as I lay blame on the pathetic voters who put this dolt in office.

I am somewhat impressed by France's public reactions of the last few days. Based on their history and my impression of their public policies toward conflict they have stood up towards a misogynist, regressive, pseudo-religious ideology known as Islam. This was the last reaction that I expected from a country such as France as I have visited this country over fifteen times and have never encountered a emotional reaction such as this...
Typically, the French, as well as Americans, observe constant bashing of religious ideals of Christianity, as they know that most Christians would "turn the other cheek" while the leftists, expressing subservient and submissive actions toward religions such as Islam, are represented by the US media and self-described foot soldiers known as the atheists, leftists, aka Democratic party.

For the first question, yes. Hopefully this will happen, they sat back too long silent and let Islam be co-opted by evil.
For the second question, not so much anymore although in the past that has happened even if misguided (the Crusades, the Spanish conquest of central America, and some might say the KKK). Currently, there are some borderline cases (Westboro Baptist for example).
The second was not a question but a declaration. As for the KKK, this was (and still is) a Democratic venture into control of groups of certain of people. The left does not control black people physically anymore but they do mentally. Try reading choice Lyndon Johnson quotes for a while...

Prior to Fidel Castro's rise, a Cuban was either rich or poor, thanks to the support of the U.S. for Cuban dictators favorable to U.S. control of Cuba.
Now the Cubans are just poor. A very "progressive" result, wouldn't you say?
I have always found it comical and humorous that those that support economic systems that Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, etc... employ, have no problem with the fact that the ruling class does not live by the rules that the common people live by. The ruling class have better health care, better consumer choices of products and a better standard of living, overall, under communist and socialist led countries. Only ones that are mentally deranged could support the way of life that Cuba has.
"Among the firearms were four assault rifles and seven semiautomatic handguns."
Really? What defines an "assault rifle"? Is there a sticker on the weapons that say for "Assaulting Only" or "Defense Only"? I've never owned an Assault Rifle, only Defense Rifles... Nice...

[quote][b]mpd0.59[/b] - . But it never ceases to amaze me how many people make more than the measely $400,000 / year that the POTUS gets as the leader of the free world and the commander-in-chief of the most powerful military on earth.
Technically, he is leader of the executive branch of the U.S and Commander-in-Chief, and that's it. He holds a job that wasn't necessarily awarded to him based on a resume, accomplishments, or other mandatory requirements that we typically see in the private sector but he was awarded the job based on popularity as all presidents are. I think that Presidents are paid too much as it is now as well as members of Congress. If many of the holders of seats of Congress as well as the President performed as poorly in the private sector as they do in the public sector they would be jobless and standing in the unemployment lines.posted @ Wednesday, December 17, 2014 - 20:34

[quote][b]TheBetterGeneration[/b] - @snarkydude: Your experience is so limited and I don't have any reason to believe anything you're saying. I personally know 43 different professors at 15 different universities, and in my experience most of them have blue tinted skin. .
Probably because 80 to 90 percent of them profess in disciplines that have no merit in the real world. They, assumingly, have degrees in the liberal arts which have little value in a capitalistic society with few exceptions such as business and law.
in my experience, private colleges such as Embry riddle and public technical colleges such as GA Tech, Cal Tech and Virginia Tech, for example, the professors have red-tinted skin because they instruct degrees in real sciences such as engineering and physics that prosper in the capitalistic world. It's that simple.
For the record, my peers and myself do not even recognize the liberal arts as a true discipline nor degree as they are not remotely close to rigorous study and debate as the hard sciences. It's fool's gold in other words.
With all of this being said, studies such as literature and arts should be offered only as electives and not as core. Anything else is a waste.
