Good comeback and coverup from your lack of reading comprehension, little man. Except I know what you were referring to. I said I'm not a Democrat awhile back because Democrats generally lack spines. You confused this with liberalism because, well, if truth be told, you're just not very smart.

Sorry to be the harbinger of bad news, but your parents should have told you during your homeschooling.

That too. While Mandela also did some praiseworthy things, lets not forget that critics of the US government love to slam the USA for cozying up to tyrants when it's politically expedient. IMO Mandela should be subject to the same criticism but so far you hear little about it.

WTF are you talking about? Do you even know? I doubt it.

It was Apartheid SF that developed nuclear weapons -- including neutron bombs that were to be fired from howitzers at revolting blacks.

Thank G-d it never happened -- largely to the leadership provided by Mandela.

Nope.

I generally vote about 50/50 for local fiscal positions. Because you know, there are actually more elections than just for president.

Betcha didn't know that about our Constitution, either.

I have zero problems with spending money on self defense but don't act like they were neutered and couldn't spend money because they spent an odd amount considering they had no foreign involvements nor belligerent neighbors.

Really?

Do you have any idea how much civilian blood the right-wing U.S. administrations you have supported have on their hands?

Are you familiar with the atrocities committed by right-wing U.S. administrations (and their CIA-backed proxies) against Cambodia, Guatemala Nicaragua and Iraq, to name just a few?

Funny how we never hear objections to targeting civilians from righties like you when examples like these are mentioned.

They most certainly exhibit what you might call "selective outrage."

Let's highlight the difference between these right-wing hypocrites and liberals when it comes to atrocities committed by their own government with a historical comparison:

Liberals responded to the atrocities committed by the U.S. in Vietnam - irrespective of which party controlled the WH - with an anti-war movement that was unprecedented in scale and some of the largest organized protests in U.S. history.

Right-wingers responded to Bush's illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq (and all the well-documented atrocities that followed) by defending the Smirking Sociopath's every move.

Including ignoring or outright defending the trumped up evidence and lies which surrounded it by saying "well the libruls voted for it too!"

And then of course, the minute you bring up Bush, the chorus of "Ohhhhhhhh blame Bush! Everything is Bush's fault NURRRRRR!" rings from the mountaintops of stupid-dom, as if somehow the moment he left office, everything he ever did became everyone else's fault.

Where were you when the Bush crime family and their neocon friends were scamming the country?

Ummm...b****ing about it the whole damned time? Attempting to vote them out? Informing others about their criminal behavior so they could do the same?

The difference is when Bush dies, I don't expect the whole world to be singing the praises of how great of a guy he was and all the good he did, which besides his Africa policy, I'm not going to defend. That is my whole entire point of this. Mandela was involved in very shady stuff and the media and world leaders are completely ignoring it. It is a disservice to the history of South Africa and to his own legacy to leave out this narrative.

BTW, I am fully aware of what has happened in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, etc over the past decade and I'm well versed with what happened in Vietnam and Cambodia. I worked DoD for a little bit and even though my project wasn't pertaining to those, I had easy access to a lot of information that didn't make the news (not Grassy Knoll stuff, just the things that were cut out of the news reports). I supported the Afghanistan mission, wish we had taken Saddam up on his $$$ request to leave Iraq even though the status quo wasn't viable, and I wished we had left Libya and Egypt alone.

Post history. It's a useful thing.

Let me guess. Like Barry, you just don't care enough.

I've been quite critical of several Obama policies. So have other liberals here.

But that goes against your narrative, so you block it out like a child abuse victim.

Funny bashing Bush. He probably did more for Africa then Mandella. Mandella cozied up to dictators and Bush saved millions of lives with his aids policy in Africa.

How did liberals respond to your patriarch Kennedy killing a woman then covering it up? Oh yeah like 5-6 straight election wins into the Senate.

Hmmm. Looks like mostly cricket chirping, excuse-making, double-standard crying and/or messenger shooting. Exactly what you're accusing the opposition of.

Hmmm.

You didn't post in that thread, either.

That must mean you were a fan of this policy, as well.

You're free to provide other evidence to the contrary. As for me, pretty sure that was shortly before the dawn of the BroncoBeavis era.

I read that Bob Beckel said he thinks Bush will go down as one of the greats only for that policy. We'll see how that plays out.

Pfft.

Really? That's what you've got? A two page thread from two years ago that I didn't post in?

Hold on.



How about you be a little more intellectually hon...oh wait, it's YOU we're talking about. Anyway, why not go and look at my views on drones, Syria, cutting the military budget, war in general...etc. Now you're just being stupid.

If that's the case, then any txtebow racist thread you didn't post in (since you joined the board, of course!) means you're a racist. Because we all know if you don't post in a thread, that means you support/don't support whatever was/wasn't said in the thread, as long as it is in opposition to what you have posted in the past.



So how was arts and crafts night at the Beavis Home for the Mentally Challenged?

It was fantastic. We made a lot of Pinewood Derby cars that are destined to fly off the track and earn us a DNF.

If anyone can manage to make a wooden car with no motor burst into flames after crashing, I'm sure Beavis can.

Of course when you ask him how he'll say "Wood burns, so tell me why it shouldn't."

You're the one who mentioned post history. So I went diving and found Hough's superfriends doing exactly what he now says is intolerable. As for whatever he had to say, I'm all ears. At this point it's still a mystery.
