never vote for him because he is wet behind the ears. He has no

is sure getting rid of her rivals hey?

Does anyone have any idea what this guy means with that last sentence? It sounds like he's saying that he's part of the conspiracy to get rid of Hillary's competition.

Comment: In regards to the new $1.00 coins with the Presidents, the
government can keep then if they can not Put " In God We Trust" on the
front of the coin then I don't want them. It is like they are ashamed of
those words. We I was growing up I learned that it is God, Country and
Family, I haven't changed me views. If this country would change the way
it is going and put God first then it will come out a winner. God saw us
through the 1st World War, the 2nd Word War and every enemy that comes
against us. What would we do without him?

I'm sure you'd just find something else to rant about.

I'm not sure what a Word War is, but I can only imagine some kind of a face-off between British and German rappers in the 1940s.

"We're the panzer posse on our way to Dover,
For you Tommy the war is over."

"You nazis think you're so superior,
I'll pop a cap in your posterior."

etc.

More to the point, what happened to the 1st word war?

Comment: I'm sure you know this, but incase you don't. President Chevez of
Venezuela is hostile to the United States and not just President Bush. He
sides with the president of Iran and attended the conference on the denial
of the Holocost. Therefore, he is hostile to Israel and to the United
States of America.
If you are to blind to see this and to dumb to understand this, then
please feel free to LEAVE the United States of America and don't let the
torch from the Statue of LIBERTY burn your ass.

Another one of these sad and disturbing e-mails where the writer praises freedom / liberty but demands everyone think the way he or she does. Obviously another believer in the motto, "You're only free if you think like me."

Don't you think that if 'Chevez' had been at that conference it would have been mentioned by Faux News?

Comment: Comment on the article by Matthias Dapfner, CEO in the Springer
Verlag, article published in the nenwspaper "Welt" on Nov. 20th, 2004:
This article I saw only yesterday, March, 22nd, 2007. At the time, this
article was written, I knew it was wrong on some important points.
In the meantime I know it is wrong on all of its main points! It is a
concatebation of brazen lies! It is in accordance with the brazen lies the
Allies tabled on WWII, and tried to make truth in the treaties with
Germany on this. "The Allies' presentations on the events of 33 - 45 and
occupation of Germany are valid for German authorities whatsoever, whether
they turn out to be true or false." Such a claus cannot be text in a
treaty (or basis for a law) as it implies " What's, wrong is right!"
Whosoever may be the signataries of this treaty - it may be the US, UK,
France, Germany, perhaps the USSR and its legal followers, all members of
the UNO: Such a treaty is not a valid treaty to the extant this is meant
to be valid. It may become a valid treaty when the objects referred to in
that clause are replaced by the "Salvatorische Klausel" pertaining in this
Kontext. (I put in here the German juridic term as I don't know the
English term, and can't look it up at present. The corresponding English
term will not be very far from this German term.) The "Salvatorische
Klausel" pertaining to this is: All events referred to by the inalid
clauses need to be investigated, and agreed upon by the public and
scholarly bodies dealing with these issues of all signataries. This would
be a very illuminating process of truth finding. Such brazen lies as
spread by Matthias Dapfner, CEO of Springer Verlag, in his article in the
newspaper "Welt" of 20th of November 2004 could not any more be published.

Comment: In regards to misplaced trust article for lacking "in god we
trust" on money

Scripture says man cannot serve god and mammon at the same time,

Mammon being "Money"

The only time christ displayed anger was when the money lenders worked the
Temple

If in god we trust, we would'nt fight, strive, cheat, neglect, die and
kill to attain money!

We as American could'nt possibly live without it, so we try to fuse God
into it!! using his name!! Blasfamy!

We as Americans cannot seem to live without practicing world wide violence
either for growth. Perhaps we should also start printing "in god we trust"
on gun barrels

The time has come whether we realize it or not that we MUST pull our heads
out of our cuolos and we must have an honesty and IQ test for people who
wish to hold the influencial position of writers / journalists.

snopes 04 April 2007 08:21 AM

Comment: I am happy that the words In God We Trust have not been removed
from our currancy but, The edge of the coin is rather redundant as over
time the edges of coins get worn of leaving nothing in regard to the honor
we as Americans have for the hard earned dollar to be represented by the
God of all God's, the God this nation was founded on and in and what our
statutes of freedom and democracy stand for. Honestly I see our country
giving up the very crucial foundation of strenghth it has stood on for
centuries little by little by taking any visable evidence away in our
monuments and currency and our documents of government.I pray as those who
are in power to make such changes that have not been voted on by the
american public will come forth ever stronger in the God fearing
Christians of this nation.May God have mercy on their souls for the
decisions they make regarding His representation in the future. There is
a strong Chritian nation rising up in our young people and I have hope
that they wil get it right after all this time. It amazes me how people
from other countries want to live here and have a peice of the pie but
don't want to live up to the original standards set by the founders of
this country as well. Very Sad, LSB

How dare they not own slaves, kill Native Americans, and deny the vote to women and blacks!

It seems to me that these new coins are mostly likely going to be collected more than spent, therefor reducing the amount of wearing down on the edges. I have some older, well circulated coins and their edges are just fine.
But paranoia doesn't listen to reason.

Comment: Regarding your explaination as to why David Rice Atchinson was
not "President for a Day", I much prefer the legend to your explaination
of the "truth". You guys take a lot of the fun out of life. If you have
any questions watch the movie "The Man Who Shot LIberty Valance" for a
better understanding.

Native Americans had guns (at least after 1800 or so), but it still didn't prevent them from being overwhelmed and stripped of resources by European settlers.

And, in any case (as many Native Americans found), owning guns isn't all that effective when your enemy controls the supply of essential goods (such as ammunition and spare parts).

Seriously and honestly words cannot describe how sad I find this.

Disagreeing with someone, even for the most illogical and inane reasons, is one thing. But to agree that the person is factually correct and still be angry because what you admit is the truth because it doesn't make you as happy is just... painful to even watch someone do.

Comment: I think we should get the names, pix and addresses of all oil
executives and management. As well as all arab companies involved in oil
and their pix and Id's and keep tabs on their where abouts via the
internet and inform all merchants and venders to these theives and when a
merchant or vender encounters one in their area when the thief is trying
to purchase products or services charge triple for it. Or more depending.
Like charge $100 for a pack of gum. if they don't buy it what have you
lost? As well, make sure they hear the person before them and behind
them get it cheaper. I.E. At the marked price. Making sure of course
that all thieves servants are documented as well so they can't sneak that
by the merchants or venders either. These people are documented in public
records, seriously this would at least compensate the venders and
merchants a little for greater operating costs.

Good idea! You get to be the administrator of this program. (And of course that means your name, picture, and whereabouts gets publicized too). Make sure you inform each and every merchant in the area of each and every executive and management person. Be sure to keep track of all the accounting. And don't forget to provide security at each location.
