just wanted to let you know,the 2 journalists have been released after they had to convert to islam on video.
US news still reporting they dont know who was responsible for the kidnapping. but,,,interesting enough, not one mention of the "holy jihad brigade"not even those 3 words muttered on TV.watch this. but I think the Israelis will want this story to die.

also some Israeli rep. in US wants to put pressure on US rep not to release the $230 million that Bush has pledged to aid for Lebanon. gotta run this will require loudness.

I havent been drinking scotch since my Australia days of tears. I tend to drink crown royal neat.I will toast to Lebanon while listening to "crazy"

again nothing on released kidnappers except "its really like a miracle" and "WE dont want to get into specific details as to who helped with the release ,but Bush ....." connection cut off,,,,
can you follow up there on funds the US gives Lebanon. I want to know all about it because its easy to look big and say you will give but that kind of talk is cheap.

Where does Israel think it can have the US hold money promised to the Lebanese for disaster relief from Israels Bomb damage.????
For every US reporter out there reading, this is a story worth tapping and follow up ,

The parties running for election are going to need to know this and use it. LEBANON should not have to wait for help because Israel says so....

the women and children need that money as quickly as possible and so does the Lebanese infrastucture to continue its economic repair to assist those displaced so they don't have to live like refugees in there own country.
I really have to get loud on this ,
until later

A key US Rep. Tom Lantos (D-California) said today he will block the aid Bush has promised Lebanon, because UN troops aren't deployed on the border with Syria. He also claims US aid to Israel of over $500 per Israeli isn't enough! See:

This guy is seriously in the grips of the American-Jewish lobby!

Gotta love the Lebanese spirit, never dies!

Let me guess merkova, Lebanese stupidity never dies too?
Thanks for your creative input, tho as u can see, no one here really gives a f*** to your original and inspired comments.

You think merkova is a Zionist racist? Or is it just that he's a sore loser? Or is it that the Lebanese have shown over and over again that they will never lie down and let the Zionists trample all over them? This is a spirit to be admired.

This is all a joke, What do the Lebs provide the world? You guys brag how mighty you are and your people are as well as your intellect. I have met 10 Lebs and they were really good at cheating the system as in paying taxes, declaring income, cheating the CA department of labor, lying and basically stealing. they would only employee illegal Mexicans to work in the South Cali manufacturing facility becasue they could pay them nothing. They would promise money and never pay their employees. I had to fight for every check and these people had the balls to think they were better. Lebs on the cutting edge or world leaders...... What a joke. Don't worry I've met a very low down Jew too, but he was born and rasied in South Cali so I can't judge him based on Israel. But my good old Leb buddies would sit and talk how they faught in the civil war. They were the most crooked business people I have met yet. Screwing them in the end was pricless.

Blogger Sam said...

SO I do have some history with born and rasied Lebs. So I do know what I'm talking about thank you very much.

6:26 PM  
Blogger Sam said...

What does Leb provide to the world, besides terrorist and a haven for them? What are you exports? It's neat your booze slogan is an American product. How much aid or relief did Leb donate to the victims of tsunami in Dec 2004? Your major imports are everything including Irainian weapons and terrorists as well as Syrian thugs too. So what does Leb do for the world? How much do the Leb's give to the world in aide? How has your country influenced the world? Please inlighten me as tooo why you think you matter at all.

But those were only the people in his immediate family. So, obviously he knows what he's talking about. Now - let's see what's said about things he doesn't have a clue about.

Usually wrong, never quiet. The way it is with bigots, SAW and 8:09 and the other thoughtful people here. We're in for another week of unthinking, completely ignorant, non-stop stupid, bigotry. All alone and shrieking from the bottom of his toilet that just won't flush.

howard this isn't your blog, I'll ask any question and have any outlook I like. I asked some questions and would like some answers. So piss off Howard!

6:41 PM  
Blogger HCB said...

I know it's not my blog. Nor is it yours. But you've attempted to take it over with your filth in the idea people will leave just because they can no longer stomach you.

You haven't "asked some questions" - you have simply spouted more of the same vile filth that always spills out of your head when you open your mouth. Why you feel good spouting your crap in the middle of a disaster with real people hurting is beyond me. But you do. There is no depth to your lack of sensitivity and you clearly have no feelings for people as human beings. You revel in your hate mongering and you seem to enjoy the stink you make when you approach. You are not even at the level of an animal - you not only have no sense of compassion, you delight in demonstrating your complete lack of humanity. A mad dog.

Do as you see fit, you miserable spot of scum - talk your filth, make your insults and act as the complete moron you are. I'll not piss off - but if you were in reach, I'd do a lot more than piss on you. However, a virtual pissing on you will have to suffice.

To bad Howard, still not going anywhere. So live with it.

This is the world we live in. Most everyone here spouts hate against the States and Israel so I'm doing the same back to Leb and it's followers. Howard if you and I were face to face you wouldn't be standing there acting so tough but it's easy for a coward 3k miles away and hidden behind a fake name and a screen. Go make money off oil and feel good that your impowering countries like VA, Iran and the rest of the wack jobs out there. You're a garden variety pussy at best.

As I said, I don't expect you to leave. There's a benefit to people like you hanging around trying to say something and not having the vocabulary to say it so they simply degenerate to scum. A truly beautiful Japanese garden usually has a wilted flower in it somewhere. It's purpose is to provide a basis for comparison - a way to savor the beauty by placing it next to the ugly. You are the ugly, wilted plant in this place of good people. You are the scum that floats by and makes the water lily that much prettier. You are the bigot in the midst of compassionate people who are trying to comprehend and understand. You are the constant reminder of what happens when the garden is not tended.

So - don't go, scum. Stay and remind people of the bad that comes simply from not being good to each other.

HCB--do you know how absolutely hilarious evil "sam" is? He is so hilarious because everything he types is in effect the complete opposite to reality and truth. Completely.

So just take what we says and turn it 180, flip it inside out, then you will have truth.

Its good we have him around for comedy relief.

Blogger Sam said...

hahahahahah "You are the bigot in the midst of compassionate people who are trying to comprehend and understand."

That is so untrue; you guys are not trying to understand anything. I tried and you never once tried to fix or mend the fence. You just kept on attacking and when it suited you then you tried to be nice.

All you guys do is bash the Jews, spread hate and keep the resentment alive and well. You project your love and peace but you’re incapable of anything but producing hate Howard. You're the worst offender here but most aren't far behind you.

You should do stand up Howard, what you say is comical as well as two faced and hypocritical.
The “H” in your name is hypocritical.
The “C” is for cynical
Butthead seems to fit best for the B don’t you agree!

Smile Howard, life’s to short to be an ass like you all of the time. The people in your life may try to hang themselves or run away.

Blogger Sam said...

So what are you a Doc of? Or is it that your a streep sweeper but like the name becasue you think your input helps fix peoples souls or something? Who's bitch are you anyway?

7:43 PM  
Blogger Doc said...

Sam, I love Jewish people--some are my friends, some my colleagues are Jewish. This has nothing to do with people, but the government and policies of those people--which are not representative.

So shut up. Thanks.

PS. i am a social scientist.

But we should not let the scum spread so it dilutes the beauty. Now I will notice it floating by but will otherwise ignore it, Doc.

Come Howard I use diff text in each post be origonal.... oh wait your king of cut and paste.

Doc you sound like one of those liberal never be happy people. I have Jewish friends but dam the Jews. I hate society becasue of the hate but yet I spread it like it was fertilizer.

You want to study something study Howard, he's a piece of work.

As to shutting up, you wish it was that easy.

• All eyes on Andre Agassi as U.S. Open begins

Besides Katrina and the plane crash these are the top stories in the USA. Do you think anyone cares anymore. Do you people really think that Peach, Howard, Julie and the rest of the whinners in the States are going to get anything done to help your casue? Nope, our leaders are just one of us too. Since everyone over there and around the world wants to blame Bush and his party this topic is being brought up.

You people need to look for real people to help your cuase not the whinners supporting you now. They know nothing in what to do to help. If all you desire is a bleeding heart responce then your've choosen the right people to allign your selves with.

The company you choose says so much about a people. Sad if you ask me that I feel this way becasue of how my people are acting and brining out my anger and hate too.

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776.
A DECLARATION
BY THE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
IN GENERAL CONGRESS ASSEMBLED.
WHEN in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation.
WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness--That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shewn, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security. Such has been the patient Sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the Necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The History of the present King of Great-Britain is a History of repeated Injuries and Usurpations, all having in direct Object the Establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid World.
HE has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public Good.
HE has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing Importance, unless suspended in their Operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
HE has refused to pass other Laws for the Accommodation of large Districts of People, unless those People would relinquish the Right of Representation in the Legislature, a Right inestimable to them, and formidable to Tyrants only.
HE has called together Legislative Bodies at Places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the Depository of their public Records, for the sole Purpose of fatiguing them into Compliance with his Measures.
HE has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly Firmness his Invasions on the Rights of the People.
HE has refused for a long Time, after such Dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the Dangers of Invasion from without, and Convulsions within.
HE has endeavoured to prevent the Population of these States; for that Purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their Migrations hither, and raising the Conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
HE has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.
HE has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the Tenure of their Offices, and the Amount and Payment of their Salaries.
HE has erected a Multitude of new Offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harrass our People, and eat out their Substance.
HE has kept among us, in Times of Peace, Standing Armies, without the consent of our Legislatures.
HE has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power
HE has combined with others to subject us to a Jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, and unacknowledged by our Laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
FOR quartering large Bodies of Armed Troops among us:
FOR protecting them, by a mock Trial, from Punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
FOR cutting off our Trade with all Parts of the World:
FOR imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
FOR depriving us, in many Cases, of the Benefits of Trial by Jury:
FOR transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended Offences:
FOR abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an arbitrary Government, and enlarging its Boundaries, so as to render it at once an Example and fit Instrument for introducing the same absolute Rule into these Colonies:
FOR taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
FOR suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with Power to legislate for us in all Cases whatsoever.
HE has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
HE has plundered our Seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our Towns, and destroyed the Lives of our People.
HE is, at this Time, transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the Works of Death, Desolation, and Tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty and Perfidy, scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous Ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized Nation.
HE has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the Executioners of their Friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
HE has excited domestic Insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the Inhabitants of our Frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known Rule of Warfare, is an undistinguished Destruction, of all Ages, Sexes and Conditions.
IN every stage of these Oppressions we have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble Terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated Injury. A Prince, whose Character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the Ruler of a free People.
