that was sold on a tissue of LIES

IN THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME

so spare me the bullshit, the moral hypocrisy and the double standards

AND you can take your moral high ground, and you can shove it up your hole.

All due respect.....

Show me another war in history where such care was taken to not hurt civilians.

All due respect....

The war was legal

All due respect.....

You are out of line.....with your personal comments

Personal comments? You called my thread shit, how did you expect me to react.

It's just a bit of satire, if you want to post a satire on liberals go ahead.

Given that your own political hero Richard Nixon accused Cheney of being a draft-dodger, I think satires like the one posted are fair and reasonable commentary, to be honest.

That's so crazy, it makes me want to vomit.

It is shit....

Its an opinion...and it is a far cry different than telling me to shove it up my hole.....

That is personal.....

Particularly after explaining how personally upsetting I find it....

But hey, its all good......moves me from the center to the right in my thinking.

You said in another thread that Nixon was your favourite President.

edit: No sorry, you said Nixon was "one of the greatest Presidents the world has ever known".

It is indeed an odd phenomena that the same political party who supports a woman's right to have her baby ripped from the canal except its head and then have the skull crushed - all in those short hours leading up to the birth of the baby - would have the nerve to call anyone a Nazi.

It's just a satire, a bit of a laugh. It's a pity you some of you guys are taking it so seriously. As I said, post a satire on the Democrats and get your own back, if its funny but they take offense then I will happily join you in accusing them of lacking a sense of humour.

Rolling your eyes?

Where do the vast majority of partial-birth abortion supporters come from, Republican or Democratic? I am yet to hear of a single Republican that supports partial birth abortion.

And yet, people from the Deomcratic party have the nerve to imply that the Republicans are Nazis?

Give me a break.

That is just as fucking bad. You want to fucking well see what the Nazi's did then look at the death camps, visit a holocaust museum, talk to a survivor. An abortion is not on par with that, it is not a big deal.

Comparing people to Nazi's does a disservice to the victims of Nazism.

Yes and I will continue to roll my eyes when you bring up an argument that has nothing to do with this thread, it's completely out of context, and wouldn't make sense in any context especially when it's a fucking satire.

You've just single handedly destroyed any leg that Republicans had in this thread.

Republicans love to more than imply that liberals are unpatriotic or that they hate their country. And yet when the tables are turned, Republicans certainly don't know how to take what they dish out.

If you all hate the tone of the rhetoric in this nation, just remember all the political campaigns of the 1980s and the mudslinging and name-calling that got Reagan and Bush, Sr. elected.

A,

For your info, I wasn't calling the Democrats Nazis. I simply said that the Democrats have some nerve calling the Republicans Nazis when they are the party that supports the murderous crime of partial birth abortion.

I have spoken with a holocaust survivor. I went to a college lecture by a holocaust survivor. I spoke with him afterward and he signed my book.

I am not comparing the two at all. The holocaust was horrible hell.

But so is abortion. Hundreds of thousands of babies are slaughtered every year. And partial-birth abortion is the worst that abortion has to offer. It is so horrendous that even the AMA has spoken against it and said that there is never a reason for it.

How can you say partial birth abortion is no big deal? How can you say that ripping a baby's body from the birth canal just before it is born and then crushing its skull while it is still in the canal is no big deal?
