Before you call someone a liar you should at least read what they said. Or maybe you have a reading comprehension disability.

I never said "all of the embassy attacks under Bush occurred in Iraq."

at a risk of continuing this cross thread silliness, can you please list all of the embassy attacks that occurred in Iraq under Bush? Don't worry, I've already Googled it, I just want to see what you come up with.


We'll be waiting until Hell freezes over before Sandi attempts to answer this.

I find the immigration angle more constructive than throwing Abe Lincoln quotes back and forth.


Ya know, I think I share your irritation in a way.
Our collectively shared history with regard to Lincoln is informative, but I will only reflect on this.
In the end I have a much greater issue with emigration of labor (jobs) over immigration of labor (citizens).
The corporate regime has taken the long view.
Can we american citizens (i.e. - customers) have a voice?
Or is it just a numbers game at this point?

No



Awww, not even giving it an attempt? Maybe you can at least say how many attacks on the US embassy in Iraq took place under Bush. I'll even give you a hint. There are 9 attacks on US Diplomatic missions between 2001 and the end of 2008 detailed on Wikipedia. Since you stated attacks on embassies under bush were almost exclusively in Iraq, this shouldn't be too hard for ya.

This is "The Union thread." Why do you want to hijack it further?

Only to the extent that they both do a public service. As I stated.

That seems kinda cynical. Do you feel that every organization (such as PTA, NAACP, various Tea Party groups, Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts, VFW, etc etc) is primarily concerned with only making money or are there any groups in America that you beleive are actually trying to do some good for their members and/or the general public?
