2 NYC cops ambushed, killed

Ok, so, now "led" means that one is responsible for any and all acts and behavior perpetrated by anyone claiming to be any part of whatever "national" march you plan to hold?

Is that it?

If so, that's a pretty broad standard. Is that a standard you hold yourself to? How about your friends? Family?

So Al Sharpton calling for responsible police behavior causes/gives permission for/breeds, in your tiny little mind, the despicable behavior of a few dozen miscreants a thousand miles away?

You seriously hate Al Sharpton that much?

. . . . speaking of "the FauxNoise-brain-washed couch-potatoes who function as Rupert Murdoch's unpaid agit-prop distribution network."

And it's "Sheeeeeeeeesh!"

If you insist on mimicking me, get it right!

"When Sharpton leads a march where protesters chant "What do we want? Dead cops . . ."

Ummmm, somebody please tell 76Ytown that Al Sharpton was in Washington, D.C., when this particular SMALL group of protestors was videoed chanting the above referenced chant in NYC.

Once again, the truth matters not to the FauxNoise-brain-washed couch-potatoes who function as Rupert Murdoch's unpaid agit-prop distribution network.

(Try to stay awake and keep up, 76 . . . Sheeeeeeeeesh!)

Torture occurred and we must own up to our actions

So, dsmacker, I object to your characterization of my "rambling on the same leftist cool-aid," which I take to mean that you don't agree with me, or the Senate report on CIA torture.

Fine. You don't agree. But my rambling is most definitely NOT "the same." My rambling is decidedly my own, the result of paying attention, thinking, and then responding thoughtfully regarding THIS PARTICULAR issue, which is the current issue, regardless of whether you, or any of your little friends, try to bury it with a snow-job of old, worn-out, right-wingnut talking points about Obama's birth certificate, or his transcripts, or his mom, or his dad, or Bill Ayres, or Saul Alinsky, or Chicago politics.

And, please, deal with the substance of what I write, and refrain from speculation about what I sound like, or what my experience is, or what you object to in my previous posts (unless you plan to start a totally new thread).

This particular thread is about the uselessness of CIA torture, or, indeed, any torture. These are the conclusions of the Senate committee, based on an analysis of the CIA's OWN DOCUMENTATION!

All that old, tired, debunked FauxNoise boilerplate you regurgitate is of no interest anymore.

Senate report: Harsh CIA tactics didn't work

Moral cripples have their say; ya gotta love this country.

No matter how much you show them the moral repugnance of torture, no matter how many times you remind them that we executed Japanese for water-boarding, no matter how much you show that torture does NOT work (unless you're watching 24 and Jack Bauer is in charge), still they cling desperately to their lust for vengeance.

Admit it -- you love the idea of torturing those who attacked us. Go ahead. Wrap it up in the nutshell that it is. You get off on it, right?

At least stop pretending that it is somehow keeping us safe, because it is not keeping us safe in any way, shape, or form.

It happens to be creating even more and more virulent enemies.

Why do you think the opposition did not want the report released? They admitted that the fact we tortured prisoners will make us even more enemies around the world.

Defending freedoms? The fools are making us LESS free, and the world more dangerous for Americans!

Do you think torture deters fanatics? It energizes them! It emboldens them!With fools like that "defending" us, please spare us their efforts!

Not only do they stink to high heaven morally, they don't work!

(Are you people really that freaking stupid? Or are you really that full of hate toward Obama and the Democrats that you really believe your own spew?)

Go back to imagining your hopelessly sentimental, silly, canned scenarios, because it does NOT work that way in the real world.

It works that way only in your pitifully pea-sized little imagination, stoked by the fiction that sells under-arm deodorant and cell phones on network TV shows.

It must be frustrating for the cretins who sided with the amateur interrogators, whose cherished tortures did not work.

The double whammy -- morally repugnant, AND ineffective.

Not only does the moral decrepitude stink to high heaven, but the rank amateurishness is, well, rank as well.

Fictional scenario requires a fictional hero to respond.

So, call Jack Bauer.

Hatefest toward Obama reflects more on haters than on president

" . . .showing fixed noise [Faux] talking about Obama's trip to India. Three people said the trip cost two hundred million a day, one said the trip cost a half billion dollars, another said it cost a billion dollars and yet another said it cost two billion dollars"

What the "liberal," "left-wing loony" website probably did was to manufacture clips of Faux Noise talking heads making up stuff about Hussein -- complete with all the bells and whistles associated with Faux.

That's the only way to explain it, because Faux would never broadcast lies, disinformation, speculation, and falsehoods as fact, would they?

"They" asked for it by "their actions."

This is how preposterous the whole thing has become, starting with the FACT that we don't even know who we're talking about.

19 of the 21 hijackers were Saudi nationals; Os bin Lad was himself Saudi. And yet we attack Iraq, and incarcerate Iraqis, Yemenis, Pakistanis -- practically everyone EXCEPT Saudis!

And, to top it off, we use language like "This is war!" and "we're at war!" when it is convenient for us; and we deny that this is war when that suits our purposes.

I object to the infliction of cruelty on others, to be sure, but I object even more to torture because of WHAT IT DOES TO US.

The use of torture turns us into something that is not American, something I recognize as evil and morally crippled.

The use of torture allows the terrorists to say "See? You are no better than we are."

Should we defend ourselves? Absolutely!

Does defending ourselves require us to twist our fundamental senses of morality into knots, to suspend our moral principles, and to thereby become morally akin to our enemies? I don't believe it does.

I think we can defend ourselves without becoming moral cripples, and without giving the morally crippled among us free rein.

We need not become terrorists ourselves.
