    Your ambivalence can only give you comfort because you agree with them...Wait until "rich" is described as what you have.
    Iraq was a war we should not have fought and we fought it for the wrong reasons, so yeah it is a big deal.

    apathy =/= contempt.

    the only contempt i feel is for the idiot who wrote that letter comparing his or her plight as a top one percenter to Nazi Germany. if i knew where he lived, i'd poop in a bag, set it on fire, and leave it on his doorstep. then i'd get out of there before he could release the hounds.

    So, you want to burn his house down eh? Would you care if he was in it at the time?

    Demonization of Jewish and other undesirables, not of big buissness. In fact big buissness and the nazis worked hand in hand to accomplish the nazi's crimes.

    I am sure it was obvious to everyone else.

    I disagree, human nature never changes. There were even armed marches on washington back then, something that didn't occur today.

    The object lesson of Iraq will always remain. Regardless if it were progressives, I will (and currently) do regard it the exact same way (remember, even the term liberal is considered derogatory by many of the more conservative ilk in this country, I pay it no mind), there is no credible threat nor is there actionable evidence that something like the FBI should look into. If Mr Pinkett were concerned, this is the avenue he should pursue, I am sure he has enough political pull to get a real investigation going.

    I agree with Nasa?

    also this: Wait until "rich" is described as what you have. is not a complete sentence, i have no idea what you are trying to say, but I am sure its just more overly emotional goobledygook

    Rich people feel demonized? Who the hell cares? Go buy a Lexus and get on with your life. No ones coming for you. Not yet.
