No evidence that it was "targeted." You people make me sick.

No, it should not. Freedom of Speech is a good thing. It means s%theads can say what they please.
The Japanese are a decent people. They should keep their freedoms.

The US should stop futzing around with Israel. Why is the most powerful country in the world negotiating with pip-squeak Israel? Well, because we are not of one mind. And it makes us look weak: Oh, pretty please, we support you, but couldn't you pretty please stop...? Please.
As an American and Jew, I am sick of the US pretending to go hat in hand to Israel to try an wrangle some kind of concession.
The Administration supports Israel's actions. So be it. Or it if it didn't, so be it
Israel should be begging us for support! But its the other fracking way 'round. 'Cause of AIPAC and all the goddam Christian ZIonists.

Enough of all the bull. Here the deal:
Israel will stop the attack when it has reached its policy aims. Its policy aims are to cull Hamas power.
All else is commentary.

Leave her alone?
She manipulated her data! Do you appreciate how important it is for scientists to do their best to only publish conclusions based on empirically verifiable data? She was not simply negligent. She intentionally falsified her data.
Scientists are only human, but they must be held the highest standard. Science is under attack, in case you didn't know. In the US, idiots are actually against vaccinations. Simply put, I hope she rots in hell.

Its a thorny problem you raise. "Never let the perfect be the enemy of the good," on the one hand.
Cynical manipulation on the other.

RE: 'right' to healthcare.
Right. Popular conception of a "right" is not the same as the legal understanding.
Sloganeering aside, The ACA a law, passed under the Tax and Spending Power of Congress. Congress has broad power to tax, and to expend revenues within its discretion. In fact, the Tax and Spending power of Congress is the most explicit and strongest Constitutional backed power Congress has, along with the power to declare war.
The Tax and Spending power may be limited when it conflicts with other equally explicit Constitutional provisions, Such as an independant judiciary, the CIC power of the President, and the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, or the 10th Amendment.
Let me be clear: SCOTUS ruled the ACA constitutional under the Tax and Spending Clause. It was never an issue, legally, if people have a constituional right to health care. The ONLY issue was wether the law passed by Congress was constitutional. SCOTUS says it was. While you disagree, that is not the point. THe point is whether Congress has the power to pass such a law, not the substance of the law itself.
So, enough, please of the argument that health care is a 'right.' In America, it is not, legally speaking, a right.
BECAUSE THE CONSTITUTION IS SILENT on the issue. NOTHING BUT CRICKETS.
If you want to make it a 'right' you need to Amend the Constitution.

The issue is whether Israel has targeted civilians in the current war against Gaza. Not that civilians have been killed.
You provide no evidence that they were targeted.

IOW, no evidence.
JTDanManJul. 24, 2014 - 12:55PM JST
Not likely. Because it means 'their tax dollars' going to 'the lazy' Republicans don't mind government largess when it pads their pocket books. But give something the the browns, and their race-traitor allies, and it fascist totalitarianism.
I hate them.
JTDanManJul. 24, 2014 - 12:52PM JST
And yet more invective. The issue is whether Israel has targeted civilians in the current war against Gaza.
So far, there is no evidence of that.
JTDanManJul. 24, 2014 - 09:31AM JST
Looks like Republicans were wrong. Funny that.
