February 3, 2013

Knee-jerk reactions such as many of those to the December massacre at a Connecticut school will accomplish virtually nothing to prevent such horror in the future....

Impacted, did you know this:

"The inability of women in rural Egypt to clean their breasts is causing a diarrhoea epidemic, according to the country's Prime Minister Hisham Qandil.

Qandil was speaking about the spate of recent epidemics in Egypt's rural communities. During the address, he said he had witnessed children suffering from diarrhoea immediately after they have been breastfed because their mothers were unable to clean themselves probably.

He added that many women in rural Egypt don't even bother to clean their breasts at all before feeding their toddlers.

Qandil made his remarks during an address at a cabinet meeting. Women members present were noticeably uncomfortable as Qandil made the comments."

Like the Liberal Plagerism(sic)?

“plagerism [sic]”? No, impacted. I’ll say it’s plagiarism. Because I’m smarter than a fifth grader. But don't worry, because “plagerism” really meets the high standards set by the rest of your scintillating posts. LOL

Buttman, you really have trouble reading quotations in English. BTW, if you're going to quote sources, cite them. Trollsucker will tell you that if you don't, that's plagerism.

Gooseman “so good to hear that Karl Rover is going after the teaparty”

So surreal to hear that Goosy is singing Karl Rove's praises. Next thing you know she’ll be quoting the wisdom of George Bush. Bipolar leftists are so entertaining. LOL

Goosypedia, your favorite factchecker Politifact, and the Congressional Budget Office’s figures, disagree with your silly Wikipedia copy-dump.

“total for wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan is at least $3.2-4 trillion” Yes, I suppose when you throw in TWO MORE WARS, that are STILL RAGING, you might get a total in the trillions you said we spent on Iraq only. "Progressive" accounting... LOL

“potential nearly $1 trillion in extra spending to care for veterans returning from combat through 2050” Potentially? Through 2050? I suppose if you hypothesize “potential” costs FOR THE NEXT FOUR DECADES you might get into the trillions... Duh...

And citing a 2003 pre-war projection? To prove we spent “trillions”? Seriously? LOL

Come back when you have something, popcorn ball. LOL

Never believe a right wing extremist.

So, so good to hear that Karl Rover is going after the teaparty. Gee who said here months ago, the teaparty is fading away into the kingdom of nuttery?

Pass the popcorn.

Those figures are dramatically higher than typical estimates published just prior to the start of the Iraq War, many of which were based on a shorter term of involvement. For example, in a March 16, 2003 Meet the Press interview of Vice President Dick Cheney, held less than a week before the Iraq War began, host Tim Russert reported that "every analysis said this war itself would cost about $80 billion, recovery of Baghdad, perhaps of Iraq, about $10 billion per year. We should expect as American citizens that this would cost at least $100 billion for a two-year involvement.".[4]

he costs of the 2003-2010 Iraq War are often contested, as academics and critics have unearthed many hidden costs not represented in official estimates. The most recent major report on these costs come from Brown University in the form of the Costs of War project,[1] which said the total for wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan is at least $3.2-4 trillion.[2] The report disavowed previous estimates of the Iraq War's cost as being under $1 trillion, saying the Department of Defense's direct spending on Iraq totaled at least $757.8 billion, but also highlighting the complementary costs at home, such as interest paid on the funds borrowed to finance the wars and a potential nearly $1 trillion in extra spending to care for veterans returning from combat through 2050.[3]

Gooseman “Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11. Trillions spent on a credit card.”

Goosy, the TOTAL cost of the Iraq war, INCLUDING Obama’s part of it, was LESS than $1 trillion - $709 billion according to the CBO. That’s LESS than Obama’s failed stimulus. But don’t let actual numbers get in the way of your babble. LOL

w ww.politifact.c om/truth-o-meter/statements/2010/aug/25/mark-tapscott/did-stimulus-cost-more-war-iraq/

And you’re right, for once, that Iraq had little to nothing to do with 9-11. So says the bill Hillary Benghazi Clinton's and Jokin' Joe Biden's Congress passed authorizing the Iraq War. So why do you leftists keep idiotically associating the two?

"However, Denver University law professor David Kopel said last week that the Supreme Court made clear that gun control could not include weapons used commonly by law-abiding citizens, such as the top-selling AR-15 that Feinstein's legislation would ban."

"Opponents led by the influential National Rifle Association, oppose any ban on weapons, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has indicated that such a provision faced an uphill struggle.

Reid told ABC on Sunday that he backed expanding background checks to private gun sales at shows and other steps, but he refused to endorse a ban on what are called assault-style rifles modeled after military weapons."

Even Harry Reid thinks Obama is full of crap! lol

Wheeldog “FWIW: Outside the military and law enforcement agencies, there is virtually no need or excuse for possessing a military-type assault weapon. It is certainly not a hunting weapon - unless you plan to hunt people in large numbers.”

Wheeldog, the Second Amendment wasn’t made a part of our Bill of Rights to guarantee citizens’ right to hunt – animals OR people. So your FWIW isn’t W crap.

By the way, I never got an answer from you about why you need that shotgun you advocate for self-defense. With an 8-round pump-action shotgun you can fire 72 lethal projectiles faster than I can fire 30 rounds from my assault rifle. Do you expect a 72-man home invasion? Clearly a shotgun is FAR more firepower than you need for hunting, OR self defense. Turn it in, or be a hypocrite.

Gooseman, Dykes shot the bus driver with a HANDGUN. So this incident somehow supports your rabid frenzy to ban so-called “assault rifles” how?

Liberal logic. LOL

Obama took part in a discussion with Minneapolis officials before telling police officers and others that an increase in gun violence nationwide, including the Connecticut school massacre in December, made it vital to address the issue now.

"No law or set of laws can keep our children completely safe," Obama said in calling for "basic, commonsense steps to reduce gun violence."

In other news:

Consumers have been spending more on gasoline than they have in nearly three decades.

With pump prices at their highest level on record for this time of year, the stage is set for an even greater climb in gasoline prices and expenditures than in 2012. Retail gasoline prices have surged 17 cents in a week to top $3.50 a gallon on average, posting the highest prices on record for the beginning of February.

FWIW: Outside the military and law enforcement agencies, there is virtually no need or excuse for possessing a military-type assault weapon. It is certainly not a hunting weapon - unless you plan to hunt people in large numbers. It is toy of paranoia and warped Rambo self image. I respect and actively support the right to own firearms and have been an active hunter most of my life. Most individuals quit playing war while still in grade school, but some seem like they can't quite make it to adulthood.

Here is no shocker:

He was a loner who allegedly lost contact with an adult daughter years ago, according to people who lived near him. The sounds of conservative talk radio filled his home and fed his anti-government attitudes, locals said.

The crisis began Jan. 29 when authorities say Dykes boarded a school bus and demanded that he take two boys between six and eight years old. The bus driver -- Charles Albert Poland, Jr. -- is hailed as a hero for putting himself between Dykes and the children. His valor cost him his life, as Dykes allegedly shot Poland several times before taking the 5-year-old boy from the bus.
