Don't really care.

If it were not for Jesus, we'd all be Jews.

As a Muslim, Barry would love to see Israel eradicated from this earth.

As an American citizen & President of the United States, I would like to see him eradicate all hyenas & that would take care of the biggest liar on this board, yogi.

Quit looking in the mirrow, bfra.

And by the way, bfra: I'm still waiting for one of you "experts" to offer proof you're right. Damn, don't you have any other than "I think"? Can't you read?

Sorry, I didn't mean to make you embarrass yourself.

Good afternoon, Nashville.

What do you hope will come out of President Obama's visit to Isreal this week? What do you expect will come of it?

Hope and change are just slogans; I have no hope for anything positive in the ME under BHO...Obama is there to show fealty to his liege Lord, the Israeli Prime Minister....his words have all been written or vetted by the Israel lobby.

It's the old "top ally"..."closest ally" empty rhetoric.

I gotta ask, Israel is our closest ally? That's complete and utter BS.

The only time that the Israelis have been on the same battlefield together with US forces was on June 8, 1967, but we were not fighting a common foe at the time, ...that's when the Israelis mercilessly attacked the USS Liberty, in a prolonged and coordinated air and sea attack....the Mossad had LBJ by his Texas scrotum, so the perfidious Israeli attack was quickly dismissed as "friendly fire" and "mistaken identity"....shortest inquiry in US Naval history.

Our "friends and allies", the Israelis, named a public square in Jerusalem after the convicted spy, Jonathan Pollard...and they granted him Israeli citizenship, even as he sits in a federal prison....what sort of an ally honors a traitor to an ally?

Mr. President, watch your back, those people are not our friends!

The State of Israel should never have been formed. After WWII all the displaced Jewish people should have been taken in by the U.S. and the allies. Stealing land from the Palestinians to form the State of Israel was a colossal error in judgement.

By: Loner on 3/20/13 at 2:42

Amen, Blanketnazi...Palestine was and remains the dumping grounds for the world's unwanted Jews....as Theodor Herzl, the father of Zionism predicted. Concentration enables annihilation...dispersal insures survival....Herzl was not only nuts, he was dead wrong.

More NIMBY mentality. Fiercely defend them and give them financial aid - just as long as they don't reside here. Uh huh.....

I can't remember the details, but the reason Israel became a friend of the USA was a Jew pulled the USA out of bankruptcy and wouldn't take any credit for it.

I believe its on the dollar bill a recognition was placed to honor the man. I'm not sure (as usual to y'all) but I believe it might be the eye in the 'flare' at the top of the pyramid on the back of the dollar bill.

Can't remember the man's name.

LONER...............is certainly a peace nanny for as far back as 1968. I side with the war lords.

However when it comes to Israel LONER loses all manner of objectivity. Seeing the burning anger gives me hope that someday before he expires that peace and diversity cannot. Co-exist.

Israel has adroitly put our lawmakers on retainer ever since 1946. LONER the peace nanny sees the Israelis through perfect 20/20 vision. No nation has enabled more American deaths and stolen more from the American cofers since WWII than Israel.

By: Rasputin72 on 3/20/13 at 4:52

that someday before he expires that LONER finally understands that peace and diversity cannot co-exist.

Loner already knows Raspy is loser.

By: bfra on 3/20/13 at 6:03

Raspy ventured out & removed his tail from between his legs long enough to put some sleeze on the board! Woo Hoo

A new way to make ice cream. If you haven't seen it already, enjoy, kids. Any flavor and any color.

Nemo.......What Loner knows is that your net worth is lower than your education and your IQ combined.

Anything else he knows about you is waste of time.

By: bfra on 3/21/13 at 5:01

Raspy has admitted he doesn't know Loner, but yet the sleezeball knows what Loner knows! He doesn't know Nemo but knows his net worth. As I said the nerd slithered out long enough to post more sleeze,

Good morning, Nashville.

President Obama continues to grovel at the feet of our overlords in the Holy Land...he has declared that the USA has a "solemn obligation" to defend the nuclear-scofflaw state.... the apartheid "Jewish State" in Palestine.

I looked, but I could not find anything in the US Constitution that states that the USA has a solemn obligation to defend, bankroll and promote a foreign theocratic state. This applies, whether or not that theocracy is a Jewish, Christian or Islamic one. Spending US taxpayer money on their theocratic missions violates the Separation Clause. Certainly, we Americans have no "solemn obligation" to defend, bankroll and promote theocracy.....on the contrary; such US aid is specifically prohibited.

According to our Constitution, US Aid to Israel is actually illegal...but the Jewish State is the number one recipient of cumulative US foreign aid.....the Israel Lobby has clouded our lawmaker's vision....Jewish money is the blindfold....anyone who complains gets branded as an "anti-Semite"....hence the lack of public dissent on this critical issue.

Read it....and weep....official proof that we are a vassal state to the Jewish State in Palestine:

Thank you, for the kind words posted yesterday. I have been on the road a lot this week and have not kept up with the conversation in real time.

For news with a local twist, check this WSJ piece out:

March 20, 2013, 11:40 a.m. ET
Klan Plans to Protest Park Names in Memphis .

I left this comment on that WSJ comment board:

The South never repented of its original sin: White Supremacy.

The 2nd amendment enabled the great secession, the ensuing war between the states and the KKK... it should have been struck down while the South was boycotting the Congress....nobody connected the dots.

The South should never have been readmitted to the union with their state borders still intact; the entire region should have been declared a US Territory, administered to by the federal government in Washington DC.

Actually, since 618,000 soldiers and sailors died in the Civil War, it could be argued that Abe Lincoln screwed up, by trying to keep those wicked people in the American fold....he should have let those haters leave the union...they never did understand the concept of all men being created equal....the bedrock of the American experiment.

(end post)

It is difficult to believe that it has taken this long to change the names of those 3 Confederate themed public parks...in a black majority city yet...those parks rubbed shit in the face of every black person in Memphis everyday for many, many years....and now, the KKK plans to protest the name change...oh yeah, the South never repented....still hasn't.

By: Loner on 3/21/13 at 9:26

Naming a public square or a public park after some human being is an old and effective way to honor the legacy of a great human being...a true hero and role model.

But, sometimes scoundrels and traitors receive such undeserved honors....a good example is Jonathan Pollard Square in Jerusalem...named after the convicted American Jew who spied for the Jewish State....Pollard's supporters are lobbying President Obama right now, to release the infamous traitor...a man who, while in prison, has renounced his UIS citizenship and has been honored by Israel with Israeli citizenship and this public square naming honor.

What sort of an ally names a public square and grants citizenship to a traitor to its "closest ally"?
