Re: Rumsfeld to Troops: You go to war with the army you have, not the army you want

Strain begins to show as Iraq stretches military thin Fri Dec 10,11:49 AM ET David Qualls is an Arkansas truck driver and Army veteran who decided last year to get back into the service on a part-time basis. Qualls took the National Guard up on its appealing short-term recruitment offer, called "Try One." He would serve one year in the Arkansas Guard with supposedly no further commitment unless he wanted to continue. Almost 18 months later, Qualls, 35, is still in the Guard, with no end in...

Re: THE TRUTH OF THE HISTORICAL JESUS & THE MYTHICAL CHRIST

I dunno why you are relying on Jewish Literature. Biased much? BTW Jesus was born in 5 BC, not 1 AD or 100 BC (what the hell is wrong with saying Before Christ? NOTHING.) BTW there IS SOME Jewish Literature that is extrabiblical that verifies Jesus' Existence as-we-know-it (not that Talmudic stuff). It's called the works of Flavius Josephus. He was a Jewish Historian. The idea that Jesus was a bastard and Mary a whore is spurious. I know where it comes from and it's not a credible source. So...

Considering that the President broke records in his 2008 campaign for raising money over the Internet from small individual donations and through grassroots efforts from individual Americans and supporters .... and is on pace to collect as much if not more in this upcoming election ... I would say that he HAS changed the way election fundraising happens. No other candidate had - or has since - received the kind of individual donor, non-corporate tainted money support that the President has.

There should be all kinds of platforms to vote. It's some serious "shyte" going on. I see 18 years olds registering. Use to be you'd had to drag them to the polls.

Can't complain. Already Kavanaugh is agreeing with Trump regarding immigration. Who knows what's next. Abortion laws changed? Jim Crow revisited?
