    Would you agree?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    And that was updated last on 04Feb11... I think the list shows a systemic problem within the culture there. Not EVERYONE in Egypt would act like these, I'd go so far as to say it really is, even with that list a minority, but they felt enabled to do so is what is the key point to take away from this.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    A lot of the 'attacks' MrV posted were in fact arrests done by security officials and Egyptian authorities. That doesn't mean some protestors didn't attack journalists, but MrV's list is a disingenuous response to Zyphlin's request.

    The media keeps saying she was sexually assalted. She was gang raped.

    It's so disingenuous. I shouldn't have posted. I mean really, you're math skills are shown to be lacking... Very wrong of me to expose you like that.

    A brief scan and hand count shows 40 or so attacks and 16 arrests. You are shown a liar.

    As in "penetration" raped or ...? The articles I read keep saying sexually assaulted which I take to mean groped and inappropriately touched. Can you link an article ?

    It's disingenuous to say there were 140 attacks on journalists all the while implying the protestors were solely responsible.

    So you are claiming it's about them being Latinos and Blacks?

    Any questions?

    Muslim women whom, I'm sure, can appreciate what I said before about rape victims being turned into criminals.
