How is bombing civilian areas from aircraft different than bombing civilian areas by foot?
What are "western values"? Are "western values" a right to take land? A right to economically and strategically dominate?
Why do the Palestinians have to agree to anything to get a state? If Israel can veto the existence of Palestine, do Palestinians have the right to veto the existence of Israel?
Saying Israel is fighting for "freedom, liberty and democracy" is a joke. Israel is fighting for domination, ideology and land... oh, and I forgot, simple bigotry.
Israel isn't stealing land in the occupied territories to promote the freedom of Palestinians... or for their liberty... or for democracy. Israel steals land because that's what Zionism does. It steals land from Arabs and other non-Jews and gives the land to Jews. That's what Israel has always been about.
Can you explain why Daley feels strongly about opposing Fritchey?
It seems like Quigley has more of a track record of being an annoyance to Daley on the TIF issue.
While I can't vote in this race I have been to a couple candidate forums.
Feigenholtz lost me. Quigley has done some really good stuff, but some of his campaign makes it hard for me to support him.
Initially Geoghegan's courting of national bloggers while comparatively neglecting locals was annoying, but I'm feeling good about his as a candidate. Although, I can't see a scenario where he comes close to winning.
And Victor Forys is an impressive outsider candidate. He seems to know the issues.
My take is that this is a piece of legislation that allows the gun control lobby to feel relevant, sound reasonable and raise money.
What problem is registering people for gun ownership trying to solve?
I'm for stricter tracking of firearms throughout the system. I think many legally manufactured firearms are officially listed as "pilfered" when in reality the "stealing" is an orchestrated scheme to transfer firearms from the regulated distribution system to the black market.
But adding arbitrary bureaucratic requirements to ownership? What is the public policy goal?
What if Iran's leader responds by saying, "There's been a lot of mistrust built up over the years, so it's not going to happen overnight," he said of the United States. "And it's important that, even as we engage in this direct diplomacy, we are very clear about certain deep concerns that we have as a country, that United States understands that we find the funding of Zionist oppression of Palestinians unacceptable."
