    I agree, any college with online classes is horseshit, I mean, just look at Columbia, or Harvard, Obama's alma maters :lol:

    I apologize. I spoke too soon. I read it as Hillsdale College Online, not Hillsdale College. I thought it was another one of those "University of Pheonix Online" type of deals. Hillsdale College is slightly older than the internet.

    However, anyone who thinks that Progressives want to dismantle the US Constitution should not be teaching any college course, online or otherwise. The quote from Hillsdale said, "The Progressives rejected the Founders’ principles, including their notions of a fixed human nature and inalienable natural rights." That's just wrong. Progressives fought for inalienable natural rights such as women's and minorities' rights to vote, an end to child labor, workers' rights and an eight-hour work day, and public education. These were all basic human rights which were denied to much of society by the controlling class for as long as possible. It was only because of Progressives that society achieved these rights.

    You have remarkable reading skills, and your uncanny ability to parrot the mainstream political script really exposes your fantastic critical thinking skills. I take it you are a graduate of a fine American university?

    "Parrot mainstream political script"? I can't respond to that because I don't know what it means.

    Are you suggesting that Progressives did NOT fight for women's and minorities' rights? Is that what Hillsdale College wants people to believe? Would that mean that Conservatives were the ones who granted black people the right to vote? In which psychotic fictional Twilight Zone reality does anyone believe that?

    That doesn't surprise me, and helps explain for your general world view. Now go sit in the corner while the adults talk.

    Freedom is the Solution.

    Are you saying its not wise to look at what went wrong and discussing that failure before spending trillions of dollars more on the same solutions that keep failing.

    I offer no solution if my solution does not make the government stronger?

    Hey, that same Bible also contains this... consider this next time you show up outside an abortion clinic with pictures of medical waste...

    Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones. -- Psalm 137:9

    Yes, they do something. They call Washington and say, "We need you to fight a war against one of our enemies because we are too Chicken-shit to do it ourselves."

    And our scumwad politicians say, "Yes, Sir, Mr. Zionist, Sir!!!"

    At least until Obama came along.

    Okay, here was the thing. The Zionists haven't won a war on their own since 1967. They've either needed the Americans to bail them out or they've had to withdraw in some kind of humiliating defeat. Zionism is kept aloft on its own bullshit.


    Not much. Here's the thing. The Israelis did bomb the Osirik reactor in 1982, and the rest of the Islamic world pretty much yawned. The only people who were really pissed off were the French, because they had a sweet contract to build it. On the off chance the Zionists grew a pair of balls and fought their own fucking war for a change, what were they going to attack, exactly? Remember, there weren't any WMD's.




    Isn't that kind of like saying a drug addict's best friend is his pusher? Besides the fact that most of Saudi Arabia's output actually goes to India and China these days, hardly the "Free World", the fact is, as you say, we get most of our oil from this hemisphere.

    What Saudi Arabia does with that money is fund terrorists. But the worse is going to come. Right now, the only thing that keeps the corrupt Royals in power in S.A. is that they use that oil money to keep the masses pacified while they fly to Europe for booze, gambling and hookers. Eventually, the masses are going to get sick of that, and we are going to have a Jihadist government there.

    Probably a lot sooner now that we've made Iraq into a nest for Jihadists.

    THANKS, DUBYA!!!! What a guy!!!!

    Why? My guess here is you didn't sign up for the current war in the Middle East and you ain't gonna sign up for the next one. YOu are just going to let some POOR kid fight it with the promise of a college scholarship that never happens, and if he comes back in a body bag or without any limbs, tough shit for him.

    I think we need to have a NeoCon Registry. Next time there's a war in the middle east, we round the lot of you up and send YOUR asses over to fight it.

    Guy, I just can't see how continuily getting in the middle of fights in the Middle East over whose Sky Pixie has the Biggest balls really helps us all that much.

    As you say, I'm an old man. And frankly, I've been watching us play this game in the Middle East for most of my life. And I'm reminded of the old joke about the Polish Coyote that chews off three legs and is still caught in the trap.

    I remember in the Yom Kippur War when Nixon rushed tanks in to save Israel, and the Arabs kindly responded by shutting off the oil supply. Then when we started seriously talking about alternatives to oil, they kept us hooked up like a junkie for a very long time.

    We could take the 400 billion a year we spend fighting wars and propping up Israel and paying Israel's neighbors to play nice and reinvest it in public transportation and energy alternatives, and frankly, we'd create more jobs and be a lot more secure.

    But, naw, that doesn't make any sense. Anyone up for a War with Iran? The Zionists are really scared of them, too!

    Um, as far as I'm concerned, Both sides are equally guilty.

    We've been sticking our dicks in the middle east hornet's nest for 60 years now, why are we whining about getting stung?

    But you miss my point. If there is a God, and he thinks Christians are the "Good guys" and Muslims are the "Bad Guys", then why did he let the "Bad Guys" win on 9/11?

    I mean, Rev. Wright blamed Imperialism and Rev. Robertson blamed Witches and Gays, but I have a much simpler answer.

    There is no magic Sky Pixie picking winners and losers. Just like he isn't helping Tebow win football games when poor children in Africa's prayers for food are ignored.
