    isn't it funny how they only respond to their own hate boards, and stay away from anyone who calls them out with fact, even when it's a dog.

    the best line is near the end. If the troops ever leave iraq. wasn't that another one of obama's campaign promises? er uhm, failed campaign promises? LMAO Libs just don't get it do they. we can't live without oil. if it was up to the libs we'd be back to driving fred flinstone mobiles, eating un cooked food and freezing our ass off in the winter. who needs oil right? Thank God for the GOP

    That video needs an update, to include the rest of the story... Seems like it left out key people in favor of party.

    It's funny and it's clever. Why nitpick on historical facts; the right has employed dozens of Tom Parsons to rewrite history - some are so 'employed' on this very message board.

    " Parsons, Tom - "Parsons was Winston's fellow-employee at the Ministry of Truth. He was a fattish but active man of paralyzing stupidity, a mass of imbecile enthusiasms -- one of those completely unquestioning, devoted drudges on whom, more even than on the Thought Police, the stability of the Party depended. At thirty-five he had just been unwillingly evicted from the Youth League, and before graduating into the Youth League he had managed to stay on in the Spies for a year beyond the statutory age. At the Ministry he was employed in some subordinate post for which intelligence was not required, but on the other hand he was a leading figure on the Sports Committee and all the other committees engaged in organizing community hikes, spontaneous demonstrations, savings campaigns, and voluntary activities generally. He would inform you with quiet pride, between whiffs of his pipe, that he had put in an appearance at the Community Centre every evening for the past four years. An overpowering smell of sweat, a sort of unconscious testimony to the strenuousness of his life, followed him about wherever he went, and even remained behind him after he had gone."

    Why?

    Perhaps because it's all about history??

    To distort the facts, makes it meaning completely useless.

    Darn, who the heck used a favorite show of my youth to present history.

    "Eenie meenie chili beanie, the spirits are about to speak. Are they friendly spirits? Just listen?"

    Modern Timeline for Iran-Iraq Conflicts

    Iraq, Iran, and September 11: A Chronology

    The Iraq Crisis and War - Timeline - a chronology of events

    More history.

    "When David Duke was running for governor of Louisiana, he always had a country or bluegrass band on the platform with him, in all the photographs I saw. That band always had a guitar picker and a banjo player. I always had the fantasy of pulling David Duke aside and telling him "Well, Dave, the guitar was invented by Spanish-speakin Arabs, and, well, as for the banjo, now, you're probably gonna want to sit down and let me pour you a really stiff drink before I tell you..."

    There are too many factual errors to list, but I'll offer one.....

    It uses the phrase 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend" and claims that the USA armed and helped the Taliban in Afghanistan.

    Anyone who knows the facts or even watched Charlie Wilson's War knows that the USA did not supply aid or arms to the Taliban, but actually to the Northern Alliance who were enemies of the Taliban and Al Qaeda.

    I hear this fallacy repeated constantly that the US armed and trained Bin Laden and/or the Taliban and it's simply not true. Bin Laden had practically nothing to do with the Mujahideen's victory over the Red Army.
