Re: Supreme Court Healthcare Ruling
Don't forget that those people hate "us" because most of the world powers divided the nation-states into countries after WW1 with little to no regard to historic lands and tribal regions. We currently ONLY get involved in the Middle East because of the oil they have. If they were as desolate to use as much of Africa we would not be even discussing it. The world has spent the last 80+ years using various factions of the Middle East as pawns in our own game of chess. Then we slammed Isreal in their backyard with absolutely no concern for the people there at all. Now we have idiots in the gubment, and elsewhere, who say to let them fight it out as if our hands would be clean. Does anyone in the world really think that Isreal wouldn't win? Does anyone in the world think that they would solely because of the weapons we have continually sold them? "Let them fight it out" is an unbelievably ignorant statement showing nothing but contempt for the millions of innocent people who would die.

Claiming that someone else's marriage is against your religion is like being angry at someone eating a donut because you're on a diet.
