    Ugh... Doh... GONG!
    If it's torture... then torture is torture and is a criminal activity.

    It's not.

    This is a witch hunt by a bunch of idjuts that hate folks on the right. Plain and simple.
    If it is torture, then Slick and Bush should be sharing a cell.

    I prefer a President who doesn't consider the American people, or even our allies as "strangers."
    By your statement, it would have been OK for President Bush to have someone waterboarded to save Laura, but not to save your family.

    of course not, that is simple meaningless posturing from the bleeding hearts crowd. they will moan and cry and wet themselves over "torturing" these poor innocent terrorists but the minute it involves them or their family they become just like the rest of us, regardless of what they say now.

    The "training" I received in survival school was more severe than anything our govt has ever been accused of doing to these terorrist scumbags.

    Again, they do not do the same thing under the same situation and circumstance. They only give a sample so they have some preparation for when they are tortured. What you claim is false.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Are you quite certain you understand what "bigotry" means?

    obviously not. there was nothing in the post he referenced that was in any way bigotted.

    This is the most moronic defense you can imagine.

    The exact same action on two separate groups of people... in one instance is torture, the other not?

    That is what you call malleable justice.

    Either it is torture or it is not.

    You just proved it is not.

    Thanks.

    It was done to me in the mid 90s in the name of "training" that and many other things that we are forbidden to do to these terrorist dirtbags.

    While I won't indulge your philosophical speculations, I'll gladly answer the relevant question. Did Bush propagate a policy of torture, and thereby commit a war crime? Yes, by his own admission he did.
