    Well we would never guess it! Especially with the latest news from the romper room misfits last day in session! What makes these idiots think its acceptable to keep giving our hard earned tax dollars to these murdering jackals??? Its not their personal bank account...even though they act as if it is!

      Well, this is how we humans live in this planet... We're organized in states. States are ruled by governments. Governments have budgets. They need money to spend and they get money from various taxes.

      Maybe, on YOUR planet it is different, chri$$y...

      Stay away from her. She would probably give you more than that if you get too close. Like a shrunken brain. She probably thinks Ebola is a new vehicle from General Motors.

      Indeed chri§§y, this great 'ally' of the US that sucks up $3bln a year going towards military spending uses those same weapons to bomb women and children, UN shelters and hospitals on a daily basis in Gaza. Then Netanyahu had the audacity to say this to Kerry: "not to ever second guess me again". Israel blames Hamas to be a terrorist organization, but what Israel does to the Palestinians is nothing short of being a terrorist act. 47 years of oppression, subjugation, dehumanization against the Palestinian people, yet when someone says anything against Israel it's called "antisemitic". As long as Netanyahu's right wing government is in power, Israel is a terrorist state.

    Got one of your CNN-INT surveys again. Asks me the name of the programs I watch. Frankly I do not reserve that much neurons to remember the "name of the program" or "the name of the presenter". I just open CNN and watch. I do not give a s... to the name. However I do mid the content. Been laying low and not writing here till better weather. How can CNN survey team be so GREEN?

    SARCASM ALERT*** Boy I can hardly wait for Israel to pull out of Gaza and open the borders. Then Hamas will stop firing rockets and committing suicide attacks and no one will ever die another violent death in the middle east because we all know it's all Israel's fault. Including what's happening in Syria, Iraq and Libya.

    As a Canadian, I can't tell you how to spend US tax dollars, but I am certainly pleased that my government in Canada is supporting the only democracy in the ME. I just wish we were doing more to help.

    There are more Arabs voting in free multi party elections in Israel than in all Arab League nations combined.

  17. Non-reliable USA

    USA is playing it wrong with faulty partners that are not in the NATO alliance. USA betrayed many NATO countries with shadow faulty hidden undercover connections with non-NATO Asian countries, especially the non-eligible US-S.Korea Military collaboration was 'knife in the back' for some NATO countries. First, USA needs to clean Washington DC and should get a new compass.

    I too feel that the United States has played it wrong with some faulty partners. This whole situation could be remedied by meeting at an Asian Pizza Hut and eating a pepperoni pizza.

    Yes. I too feel that a visit to a Pizza Hut will truly be nice. Might I suggest a large thin and crispy pepperoni pizza, crust? You'll love it. We love it here in Ontario.
    Ay!

    I'm not sure, but it's possible that I have never been to a Pizza Hut.
    If I have been in one, it would have been during 1972, when I was very overworked and grabbing any fast nourishment to keep moving.
    I'm not sure that Pizza Huts existed back then.

    One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast to her brunette head.

    She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?" Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white."

    The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said,"Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?"
