I hear ya AQ! One thing I notice about Europe is that they really get a leftist narrow-minded view of America and the world. I think there is resentment and jealousy among many in the Europe press because they were persuaded politically to the left, Socialist and Communist by their educational system. This is happening in the USA too, many of our Universities preach Socialism as the "fair" way to govern. I say this because many in Europe vote Communist in Britain alone, no wonder Blair is in...

Hi Henry38, You know, it is through this present dictatorship Administation, that the hollowness of those words have been made clear to me.

Re: What Is "The Truth"?

Truth is simply reality or what exists at a given point in time. The truth always exist but human ignorance, emotions and attempts at deception routinely distort what is true. Truth is not relative to interpretation; rather it is relative to ones intelligence and their ability to be free from bias. Truths are simply the facts without subjective analysis. There does not exist multiple mutually exclusive truths that pertain to a single phenomenon that are evidenced by different people...

Everything is about the color of skin and ethnicity rather than the content of one's character. Marxism, Collectivism and thought control is right down your ally since you think all black people must be a monolith, all must think, act, vote and hold the same opinions. You would do well under a dictatorship or under a very strict type of religion. How quickly many African Americans forget these famous words of MLK. The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.

You're probably right for the most part. What he and the neocons are trying to do is hold together a nation that really isn't a nation at all.

Re: Venezuela gives Danny Glover $18m to direct film on epic slave revolt

Cano ·
Perhaps Danny should start his movie by filming the chaos and rebellion going on right now in Venezuela's newest utopian dictatorship. The country is threatening civil war over losing all freedoms to chavez. Chavez has been murdering at least 100 people each week for a long time now. Still, the country is in chaos and rioting, fear of chavez is strong, and rightly so. Glover is obviously an idiot. Of course, he's only an actor.

Leaving Iraq the first time was a DIRECT result of knowing the democrats would NOT support defeating saddam if it took a war to do so. Kerry himself voted against liberating Kuwait! Democrats only went along because their beloved "UN" gave them permission, and an out, to remove saddam from Kuwait. Kerry still thinks that way obviously. The elder Bush KNEW that the dems, who controlled congress at the time, would back down from doing anything other than what the UN mandated regarding Kuwait.
