Anyways, CNN this morning had poll results from the same people that did this poll and found that:
20% of Americans think Socialism is better than Capitalism
20% of Americans think we have made contact with alien life
20% of Americans believe Obama wasn't born in the United States
and then there is this:
The 9 Stupidest Things Americans Believe
"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
this says we did. So do numerous other sources.
no proof of direct involvement. Only documents proving that the government was actively trying to prevent Allende from having power and massive financial interest from ITT who alledgedly funded the coup in part. And Nixon said this 3 years before the coup: "Make the economy scream [in Chile to] prevent Allende from coming to power or to unseat him." You can believe what you want to, I think the picture is pretty clear.
Yes, we did force conversions. Most of that information is off-topic, but we definitely forced Native Americans to "Americanize" themselves and even had the official Office of Indian Affairs, founded in 1824, that handled such matters.
You can rewrite history, but I regret going to all this trouble to try to show you how naive and ignorant your statements are. You won't be persuaded by truth. You think that America has never installed a puppet dictator, Muslim terrorists are driven solely by religion and have no political basis for their hatred of us, and you even believe that taking land from the Native Americans was justified. I don't know if you're naive or ignorant, but your comments display a nice mix of the two.
A working class hero is something to be
It totally amazes me, how people try to justify terrorist attacks on the United States that result in the death of American citizens.
"Americans are waking up to reality more and more, everyday."
and now your on,
"Were those murderers killing people for religious reasons, or because they were just dirt bag criminals who killed people for whatever rationale they had at the time?"
The fact is that you seem to have the problem of making stupid comments, with nothing to back them up but your own prejudice.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
Using criminal behavior in the United States to justify terrorist attacks isn't a real bright statement.
Would you care to answer the question? Or, do you still maintain that Muslims are more tolerant of other religions?
