I am very clear on all of this. What makes me wonder, still to this day, is how did Bush get re-elected given all of this damning evidence? I would say, it's because the people of reason are not in the majority.

Re: Illegal Immigration

4YAINFO ·
Thousands of African-Americans and legal immigrants were made homeless, jobless and displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Many of them would take the jobs these illegals are obtaining in a minutes notice---but I don't see any efforts by good Ol' Uncle Sam to match these citizens to these jobs. If the military draft was re-instated only citizens and legal immigrants would be called upon and not illegals. This issue would strike very close to home if the son or daughter of an American family was...

May I ask? Has not the system of agnostic learning been set up by a European bias? Is not it in our (non-European) interest to seek out alternative ways of looking at things that have been overlooked out of bias or hatred? Is it not true that many of the historical and "official" documents most scholars use to base their work presently based off the "recognized" scholarship of those in the past with a consistent bias? If I am wrong forgive me..... I do earnestly seek truth...... However, it...

lol, "re-editorializing" I wasn't saying that he was part of some US gov't conspiracy (if anything, the government and CIA conspired AGAINST him). I was saying that some of his ideas were garnered from European imperialist and racialist ideas from the 19th century. His idea of a "New African Elite" always sounded very questionable to me. I still have to find the source, but I do remember reading a while back that he supported imperial Japan's actions in Asia.
