    Why isn't this thread dead yet?

    If its not bad enough we have idiots looking at every little picture of Obama and finding something to criticize him over we have idiots who jump through hoops of research and wasting time to try to point out someone else as a hypocrite.


    EVERYONE is a hypocrite.

    There, the point has been proven.

    /thread.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    IF this thread is so pointless then why post on it? Do you think somehow calling it pointless and pretending(I say pretending to not care because if you didn't care then you would not even bother wasting time posting on this thread at all) to not care is going to make people stop posting in it?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I've been googling the issue for 3 days now, and have not found evidence that Reagan bowed to the queen. Sorry, but the Raw Story is no evidence. If Reagan had bowed to Queen Elizabeth, there is no doubt photographic evidence, and after Obama's two controversial bows over the past few months, any photos of Reagan bowing would have been pulled out of the archives and posted all over the internet.

    Regardless, I did respond to your question in my previous post, with what my personal reaction would be if the story were true, but the evidence remains to be seen.

    As a side note, he was reportedly given honorary kighthood by the queen, and would have had to kneel for the ceremony, but that would not have been connected with his status as POTUS.

    How would not posting in this thread help it get flushed?

    You're not making any sense

    Endless tangents will either send the thread into a flame fest, resulting in a flush, or make people loose interest in it.

    Americans give a ****, is who.

    This nation was formed and deliberately fashioned to elmiinate the unearned honors awarded to heriditary power....and the Emperor of Japan is no one but the son of the weak man who couldn't stop his nation from attacking the United States. He didn't earn his position, he's the product of a happy little squirt in the night.

    Reagan's honory knighthood was bestowed after he left office, in 1989, and as a private citizen he can bow and kneel to anyone he wants.

    I don't know. No one's provided any evidence of Reagan bowing before the Queen of England as president that I've seen.

    And, no, Eisenhower should NEVER have bowed to that jackass deGaulle, he should have unzipped his pants and said to deGaulle "you owe us, time to pay this installment."
