Oh such drama! LOL!!

Last I checked Hillary and a bunch of Democrats voted to invade slick.

Yes they did, as I have written and complained about many, many times on here. I don't know how many times I have written that Clinton's vote to invade Iraq makes her unfit to be president in my views, but it's many times. You get no credit for pointing out the obvious after I have said it over and over. So what's your point?

Actually, I think that poster had no idea what PMFB was posting about. He likely never heard of Bosnia, just like he had no clue that there are search engines other than google.:D

Bannon needs to screen his online crew a little better, I think.

Makes me sad that barely 20 years after such a horrific crime is committed involving the deaths of tens of thousands, and American military involvement can be so easily forgotten.

Silly me! I should have typed "holy lands".

I'm just the old lady nerd who goes on tangents. Just information for those who are interested. we are not on the topic of Secretary Clinton. We are just entertaining ourselves in the Break room.

picky.jpg Clearly al Qaeda wanted the United States to withdraw troops from the Arabian peninsula. I linked to information that included Osama bin Laden's 1996 issued first fatwa because in writing and published it was titled "Declaration of War Against the Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holy Places"

Osama Bin Laden wrote in both that he and Sunni clerics interpreted the Quran as declaring that no non-Muslim could "control" the holy land. To him our soldiers were in the holy land near holy places.

By having military troops there (which the U.S. placed during the 1991 Gulf War), Osama bin Laden saw this as a violation against Islam and wanted to use any tactic possible to get the United States OUT.

In 1983 after the U.S. military base in Beirut was bombed, President Reagan withdrew our troops from Lebanon.

I only posted my thought that the 1990s were modern times compared to the crusades of European Christians going to fight Muslims during the starting in the late 11th century. Not even a thousand years ago.

and what did the troops do in the 1990's that compares to the Crusades? LOL. NOTHING. If you're trying to imply that the troops were there as Christians trying to convert in the Holy Land?? Um... no.

What does this post have to do with my quoted post?

 

I was posting about the Fatwas published by Osama bin Laden. I was NOT trying to imply anything.

 

If you had read my post you would know that, in my opinion Osama Bin Laden was neither sensible nor logical in believing the American infidels in the holy land near Mecca and Medina were a violation of Islam. I only know what he wrote.

I just got back from Nicaragua. I've been there twice this year.

The US has blood on its hands from involvement in the Contra war there of the 80s. A dear friend of mine came to the US as a refugee fleeing the bloodshed. William Walker et al - use a search engine to learn about him. After that, the US-backed Somozas killed thousands, the war killed tens of thousands, displaced hundreds of thousands more, and to this day there are unexploded Contra land mines in northern Nicaragua. There is at least one church bombed out church that our weapons helped destroy. There are dozens of buildings with bullet holes still in them. That's our tax dollars hard at work.

I've been there twice. I've visited the museum of the Revolution which is run by former Sandinistas. It has "Bush Genocide" and "Death to the Imperialist Invader" painted outside. There is anti-American wall art (and I mean art, because it took talent to create) in many many places. Regardless, I was the lone visitor to the Revolution museum full of a dozen former Sandinista guerrillas and was treated with nothing but respect. I've taken care of patients there, both former Sandinista guerrillas and former Somoza supporters, because I'm a nurse and we give impartial care. I've never been treated with anything but respect. The Nicaraguans I now count among my dear friends have treated me like family. I've eaten in their homes and hitched rides with strangers and walked around there alone day and night and never had a single issue.

I am sure, out of a country of about 6 million people, there are probably about 50-60,000 people (1% of the population if you care do to the maths) who wouldn't lose sleep over killing me, whether as payback for my country's 200-year involvement in their politics (sound familiar?) or simply because they're mentally disturbed individuals. Be that as it may, you will never convince me that Nicaraguans as a people are as a whole dangerous or unworthy of my respect.

As for Nicaraguans, so for Muslims.

Here's some wall art:

You do realize she talked about Alicia Machado in the debate don't you? Try to keep up with things.

Have you ever heard of a thing called "google"?

You mean "internet search engine"? Yeah, I'm pretty good at that.

He fell right into her trap on that one. He brought it up the next day in an interview when he wasn't asked about it, so he's keeping that idea alive.

It is. Do you think the blacks who actually have a heritage going back to Africa would still rather be there?

No, but I'm sure they'd like a little equality here.

Gay people are wealthier than straights . . . The general public caught up quite a while ago.

You are caught up in the 70's still. A gay kid comes out in school these days and it is no big deal.

People you deal with in an informal basis are not worried or concerned about your sexual orientation. My sarcasm implied was how did people know they were committing a hate crime unless they knew you were gay. Last I checked most people looked the same despite their sexual orientation.

You said it yourself:" I'm totally out at work and there have never been any negative consequences."

I have worked on the ambulance with gays. Both female and male. I used to go drinking with both a female and male gay ambulance partner at times in my life . My brother-in-law was gay (he passed).

But some still play the victim.

Lesbian income isn't all that good compared to men. Just sayin'

Naturally gay men have good standard of living. Ever hear the phrase "want to know who the gay guy is? Look for the hardest working person and you'll find him. " Gay people are smarter too.

Please read my posts. Stay with me now. I have said times that life is better for me now and for gays in general. I'll say that again. So I'm not really getting why you insist I'm stuck in the 70's and playing victim. Sadly, for many people bullying is still a problem. Sadly many parents disown their children. Sadly there are still suicides and gay bashing.

How you ever heard of a thing called "Google".

Problem is, Google has admitted that they skew search results toward preferences detected from previous searches. So, it's unlikely that he'll come across anything he doesn't already agree with.

Which is why I use DuckDuckGo, which claims that it does not do that. No guarantees, but I think there's a better chance at seeing more than one point of view represented.

Are you calling me a liar?

One thing that stands out to me here is that the vast majority of us so-called liberals really try to keep the conversation civil and on a somewhat even keel (for the most part-I've had my moments). The few Trump lovers that post seem to resort to defensiveness, nastiness, and accusations. Hmmmm...sounds just like their chosen one. Seems very schoolyardish to me.

Yup, Bannon definitely needs to screen - maybe even retrain - his online crew :D
