    Spoken like a true 'forgiver'. Let's forgive & forget those too who got this blessed country into unforgivable disasters like Iraq & Afghanistan. Booted US down the economic, financial, political and global slide that continues.

  8. Up on Further View

    Upon further review of video showing giant structures being demolished, and noticing the relatively small 'poof' of dust, and cross-referncing that with the IMMENSE cloud of dust stretching from the Trade Tower's to Kentucky on and after 9/11...the Tower's were obviously NOT demolished by explosive charges found by the FBi's Dr. Whitehurst's team mandated by Congress to investigate. They were dustified. Tnanks Dr. Judy Wood Phd. applied sciences for setting the record straight.

      Probably after they find his birth certificate and the Kenyan hospital records that are all missing from the week of his birth.

    Let's regard this as "Live Event" for Friday. March 30, 2012

    @ hamsta

    I saw on the space exploration story where you have accused me of trolling you. Why would a person like me who holds you in such low esteem consider doing that ?
    I can assure you that I have not and will not ever troll anyone. And you have shown that you have no problem lying either, with your claim yhat my IP address was tracked.
    So, peace out bro.

      @ dazzle
      That creature known as hamsta ( real or troll or otherwise ) has obviously lost it's / their mind. These are some really incredible / unbelievable claims it / or otherwise has been making.
      It seems to me that there is a great deal of paranoia beginning to set in one this critter.

    I wish voters would look at the candidates with complete objectivity. I wish voters would listen to what they have said and done, and compare it to what they are saying and doing. I wish voters could check their partisanship at the door, delve into depths of their own personal integrity and then make their choice.
    I read somewhere that voters in this once great country used to do this.

      That's a fine wish.
      It would also be fabulous if one would give the sitting POTUS the respect his office deserves, even if they didn't/are not going vote for him.
      Voters in this great country used to do that, too.

      I'll definitely agree with that but I don't think the office should a pass on all the issues.
