Finding responsibility

June 25, 2013

Sometimes people find refuge in nonsense when avoiding responsibility. Wasn’t it a character in a Shakespeare play who said, “There is nothing, neither right nor wrong but thinking makes it so....

Joew And American, please read the title of the column we are commenting on...liberals will never understand one of those words. Finding to them is placing the blame anywhere but where it should be placed. Finding someone to blame is the definition of "finding" to them. "Responsibility" ? They have no concept, let alone definition, of the word. That would be who's "responsible" for me losing my free ride/free benefits/free rent/free... do I really have to go on?

Yes they all did but because Bush listened to the loony's on the left he is the bad guy in all of this. But the IRS and the rest of the crap that has happened under Obama isn't his fault. Hypocrites one and all.

So President Clinton lied when he said they had WMD's. And the CIA lied at the same time about them.

So Bush was lying when he admitted there were none? "It was the alleged existence of the so-called WMD the George W. Bush administration used to justify war in Iraq. Despite a massive search by U.S. forces, no weapons of mass destruction ever turned up." usnews-dot-nbcnews=dotcom/_news/2013/04/25/17917953-bush-admins-iraq-wmd-claims-hang-over-syria-chemical-weapons-debate?lite.

Marcia-are you really that ignorant or are you conjoined with DCronignorant & Delooneyiak? We got rid of the WMD's that you now admit he had? Really Marcia? How far did we progress from the Kuwait border during the first gulf war Marcia? We did not get anywhere Baghdad OR the major weapons depots Marcia. We didn't do that until the second gulf war Marcia. How did "we get rid of the WMD's" that you now admit he had Marcia. You might be able to twist your far left baloney with some,but not me!

joew, exactly correct. That was before the 1st gulf war, and we got rid of the WMD's. When Bush used them as an excuse to go into Iraq it was 10 years later. Thank you for proving my point. There were no WMD's prior to George W Bush's war.

Marcia-one last attempt to educate you-the first gulf war did not commence until the middle of January 1991. The women,children,and old men were murdered in the late 80's. One more time,would you like to see the pictures,yes or no? All of the pictures are time/date stamped negatives,can not be altered using photoshop etc,not digital images! Please as well tell me all about the "hundreds of thousands" of Muslims killed by the United States? I will set up the viewing at either the Fredonia Police Station,the Dunkirk Police station or the the State Police barracks,whichever you would prefer? YES OR NO?

joew, admit that your pictures were taken during the firs Gulf war, and that information was no longer relevant a decade later. Just google WMDs and you will find hundreds of article saying they did not exist. Show me one that said they did. Bush lied to get the man who tried to kill his father. The first person he wanted to go after during 9-11 was Hussein. He was wrong and ruined our economy for a personal vendetta.

"Hundreds of Thousands" - sounds like a TIME magazine talking point to me. The official figures are much lower, and even lower still when you only acknowledge deaths due to American forces.

You marcia, are the most pathetic kind of person that inhabits this great nation of ours. You worship these Muslims, you feel bad for them because an Arab editor has been given license to fill your bleeding heart with sob stories.

I draw the line at anti-American sentiment. In my opinion you are now a worthless piece of trash, not worthy of the many benefits your citizenship has given you. De facto, you are a traitor. You should be forcefully expatriated.

Mike-I offered to let her see the pictures which are not the"sanitized"ones on the internet which of course gives the time frames of the attacks. Just the ridiculous accusation about the "hundreds of thousands" Muslims killed by us speaks volumes of where she gets those talking points from.

Tax rates were much higher during the :glory" days after WW@. The top rate was actually almost 90%. that makes your argument incorrect.

Why do you refuse to tell me when they were taken? Because you know that answer roves you are wrong.

And if you want to see the stomach turning pictures there is this new thing called the internet. Then get back to us, the people attempting to deal with the reality your liberal attitudes have created in America today. And let us know what a bad thing this country did, attempting to bring freedom to the middle east countries.

Marcia, the only form of racism on the rise is black on white crime. The so called demise of the country you so love amazingly coincides with the PC crowds rise in popularity. The take care of all, no matter if they deserve it or not mentality. The give me what I want, not what I earn mentality. And the rise of we will just raise the taxes on business and working class to give more to the lazy and criminal. that's the unvarnished truth you and the liberals don't want to hear. Until the give aways end this country is doomed.

Admit the pictures don't exist, because you won't even say when they were taken. There were no WMD. Bush even has admitted it, why won't you?

Yes Marcia there were thousands of Muslims killed in both wars but the overwhelming majority were and are still being killed by there own Brethren. Now when would you like to see the pictures and will you then apologize for calling me a liar? Yes or no?

Every time you say Bush lied and there were no WMD's you are standing up for the enemy. Even Clinton said there was.

American, explain what I said in support of the so called enemies? By saying many were killed? That is just a fact. And what exactly did Iraq do to us to become our enemy? Nothing.

Marcia sure sounds like a bleeding heart do nothing good for nothing far left winger. As was stated by Mike, if you hate this country so much then move to one of the Muslim terrorist countries you are so fond of. People like you turn my stomach. Many brave men and women fought and many of those died so you could have the right to spout you garbage and you stand up for our enemy. What a piece of work you are.

It has been estimated that hundreds of thousands of civilians have died in both wars. And I would like to know when the pictures were taken, if they even exist, why won't you answer the question. I think you made it up.

MikeDavis, you have my opinion totally wrong. I think we were a great nation after WW2. We spent money on research, expanded rights for everyone, our economy did well, the middle class grew. But in the last 30 years this has reversed. We don't want to help others, we've become an oligarchy that only wants to support the rich, and racism seems to be on the rise.
