[quote]Jesus Christ you and your like minded brethren are really just totally insane in your worship for Obama. The canonization is off the chart and not based in any semblance of reality. [/quote] am I doing this right?...

[quote]Most southernors, even neoconfederates, will stipulate that Reconstruction would have been smoother and more merciful if Lincoln, the northern, Republican, abolitionist, had lived and the southern, Democrat had not assumed the office [/quote] I have often lamented the fact that Lincoln was n...

[quote]I haven't seen a denier yet. I've never heard a single person say without slavery, there would have been no civil war. [/quote] Shhhhhhhhh - Scrub cannot handle that kind of lucidity. His underwear is permanently jimmied and he needs to blame in on my great-grandfather....

[quote]No. They've merely continued to deny the overwhelming relevance of slavery to the south's position. ====== I don't know about the others (because I came in after 160 posts)[/quote] I've read - or at least scanned over - most of the posts. Not a single one denies slavery as a seminal, sig...

[quote]How is the US worse off if Israel ceases to exist? [/quote] This is the crux of the matter - Obama will trade Israel's existence for a chance to get his name on a piece of paper that resulted in "peace" in the region. This is obviously the state of mind of those who support appeasing Ira...

[quote]But no, I don't believe Iran would roll its weapon off the line and immediatley aim it at Israe[/quote] Nor do I. But having the nukes changes the balance in deleterious ways. Think about the concessions we have to make in our plans because Pakistan has the nukes. Attacks on Israel w...

[quote]I don't buy his apocalyptic worldview.[/quote] So you really think that an Iran armed with nukes would [u]not[/u] annihilate Israel? I truly believe that Israel would cease to exist = at least as a productive democratic society - under that situation. I truly believe that a secondary fal...

[quote]Actually this is what goading another nation into fighting a war on your behalf looks like.[/quote] Care to explain? I heard the PM say that Israel would stop Iran from getting a nuke by acting alone if it came to that. I heard the PM say that we should not appease the Iran regime wi...

[quote] invite everyone to take a breath.[/quote] OK - now, do you think that Netanyahu's points were relevant or not? Do you think the administration's current approach to the negotiations with Iran are the correct path to prevent them from getting a nuke? Do you dismiss Netanyahu's messag...

[quote]Seems like he comes over here and makes demands rather than asking for things. [/quote] I don't recall any demands - I don't recall any requests. I heard a warning about appeasing a genocidal regime on the verge of developing a nuclear weapon. I heard a leader of his people say that h...

[quote]It wasn't done out of the goodness of Lincoln's heart like the textbooks claim.[/quote] Lincoln [u]was[/u] anti-slavery. Had the south not seceded, I am sure he would have worked to abolish or diminish slavery legislatively. But, Lincoln went to war to preserve the union. period....

[quote]Yes, the Civil War was about slavery. The North wanted to eliminate slavery, but it could not do so as it required amending the Constitution, for which there was a lack of consensus. The politicians from the North resorted to taxes as a means of putting economic pressure on the predominant in...

re: If America ever abandons Israel, would they use nukes to defend themselves? - ChineseBandit58
[quote] I'd be interested if anyone over 55 or so can weigh in on how prominently Israel figured into the national dialogue before the great evangelical movement of 1980s. [/quote] I grew up in the 40's and 50's. I had never heard of Israel in any memorable way until the 67 war. ...

re: Hillary Clinton Used Only Her Personal Email at State Dept - ChineseBandit58
[quote]any suggestion that it was her "exclusive" means of communication or that she didn't have a single official account at State is laughably ridiculous.
