Are you another republican or are you able to see things in front of you face? If not I will not waste my time.
As far as the forums,just read through just some of the threads...
As for my neighbor...well aside from the fact that he looks up everytime an aircraft flies overhead,thinks the terrorists will strike b/c we don't have a war monger in office,and doesn't leave his computer on for fear of who knows what...I'd say that's pretty strange behaviour.

Most of the conspiracy theorists in recent years are those on the left:
  • Bush knew in advance about 9/11
  • New World Order phobia
  • "Neocon" (whatever that means, depends on the individual using it) phobia
  • Builderburger (I don't know if that's spelled right) phobia
And while "global warming" is not a conspiracy, it might as well be for the people who believe in it. It's just as silly as those mentioned above, and believed primarily by those on the left.

No it's not embarrassing to me. I was merely interested in what you were referring to. I'm proud of my country for all of it's strengths and weaknesses. it's the combination of all of those things that has led us to be as great as we are.

One question I would ask. Are you implying that Clinton alone is at fault for what happened? I do read and understand the things you are referencing. I was just amazed that you seemed to imply that it was all his fault.

The arch right seem to live in a situation where everything is predictable. If they work as hard as they can they will be successful. Everybody is responsible for themselves. Follow the rules and you will be rewarded. Their preachers told them what is god's right way. They forgot to notice that their leaders were crazed gamblers, insecure morons and the preacher was bonking the alter boys.

Now they are terrified that there is going to be someone in charge that is going to figure out real answers instead of picking from a list of one. That can be really frightening to an absolutist.

Transcript: President Clinton explains Iraq strike

CLINTON: Good evening.
Earlier today, I ordered America's armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces. Their mission is to attack Iraq's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors.
Their purpose is to protect the national interest of the United States, and indeed the interests of people throughout the Middle East and around the world.
Saddam Hussein must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with nuclear arms, poison gas or biological weapons.
I want to explain why I have decided, with the unanimous recommendation of my national security team, to use force in Iraq; why we have acted now; and what we aim to accomplish.
Six weeks ago, Saddam Hussein announced that he would no longer cooperate with the United Nations weapons inspectors called UNSCOM. They are highly professional experts from dozens of countries. Their job is to oversee the elimination of Iraq's capability to retain, create and use weapons of mass destruction, and to verify that Iraq does not attempt to rebuild that capability.
The inspectors undertook this mission first 7.5 years ago at the end of the Gulf War when Iraq agreed to declare and destroy its arsenal as a condition of the ceasefire.
The international community had good reason to set this requirement. Other countries possess weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missiles. With Saddam, there is one big difference: He has used them. Not once, but repeatedly. Unleashing chemical weapons against

They live in a world of control, hate and fear.

Just look at the gun thread, they are crying like babies over possibly losing the right to have an assault weapon, which had already been a law for 10 years and they still had their guns.

But, funny how it's okay to them that Bush shredded the constitution, its okay the civil rights of gays are infringed on, and its okay to try to tell a woman what to do with their body. But try to tell them its not alright to own a military assault weapon that out-powers law enforcement in this country and they pp all over themselves in paranoia claiming their 2nd amendment rights are in jeopardy.

They care for no one but themselves.
