"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
You keep telling yourself that, and maybe once in a while jump up and actually prove me wrong. Then let's see how that plays out.People like you live just to call others out when they are wrong in opposing things you support, and ignore when others are right about YOUR being wrong.
Yes. You do, and this thread is a very good example of why you get that label.And I get labeled the hyper-partisan? Seriously?
1. The hostage gets killed :
- MrVicchio along with Rev, TD, American, GottaHurt, Navy Pride, Aquapub etc etc all post around 10,000 threads with the same names about how Obama was too irrational in using force and getting a hostage killed.
2. Obama negotiates :
- MrVicchio along with Rev, TD, American, GottaHurt, Navy Pride, Aquapub etc etc all post around 100,000,000 threads with the same names about how Obama is making us look weak by negotiating with pirates.
Do you really doubt that they weren't betting every dollar they have on this turning out any other way then the way it actually did? TD is still looking for something to complain about (see his rant on not wanting to call these guys pirates because they don't say Arg!') and Triad is still bitching about who knows what. I mean. I know some people just need something to bitch about. But the way this situation turned out and the responses I've seen from the current right wing headliners on this forum is indicative that Obama did something incredibly right.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
Exactly. A criminal act - and not a terrorist one.
Your definition of "piracy" from the Meriam Webster dictionary is pretty good, you should really have read it before you posted it. By my reading, you are stretching the definition of terrorism (most crime involves an element of terror) so does that make a paedophile a terrorist? or a bank robber using guns.. is he a terrorist too?
These guys committed the crime of piracy and of kidnap and got what they deserved. Calling them terrorists glorifies them above being lowlife scum who fell into crime.
We have enough enemies in the world today without a supposed "patriot" announcing that America should not support its president. If you cannot see the hypocrisy in this obstinate obstructionism, I will continue to remind you.
