1 BARACK THE VOTE  Fri, Nov 30, 2012 10:03:36am

So if a few more kids are killed by rockets, that won't bring down the life expectancy too much?

This means what exactly? Because according to this chart the average life expectancy (74.92) in Syria is higher than that of the West Bank and Gaza. So things are hunky dory in Syria?

It dispels the notion that life in Gaza is equivalent to the former Warsaw Ghetto of WW II era Poland.

Maybe I'm reading you wrongly, but it seems to be rather pointed you did not distinguish between who fires the rockets.

Which is very, very pointed.

Death is the great equalizer.

So, go live there.
It's not so bad, right?
Idiot.

Part of the anti-Israel narrative is to compare life in Gaza to the aforementioned ghetto. It is simply not an accurate comparison. That's all.

Indeed. It's not to say that life in Gaza is great, but its people are fed adequately and are able to import what they need. Israel is not out to kill the people of Gaza, as the Nazis sought to kill Jews, Israel's security measures seek only to protect the lives of its citizens.

If they are in prison, it is a prison of their own making. All they have to do is stop trying to attack Israel and they'll find some doors opening for them.

What happened in the case of Gaza was the 6 Day War of 1967. Israel seized Gaza along with the Sinai Peninsula. When Israel and Egypt signed the Camp David Accords, Israel returned the Sinai, but Egypt decided they did not want Gaza back.

Really?

A prisoner in Allenwood Fed penitentiary can "import what they need?"

Prisoners in America can buy food, hygiene products, socks/underwear, and tv/radios. Actually, prisoners have it better because the state has to make sure they have a roof over their head, etc unlike the open air prison of Gaza.

People in Gaza have their own houses, Destro, and Israel does allow in cement and other construction materials (though it does monitor their use) as well as provide Gaza with the fuel that runs its power plant. But Israel isn't the government in Gaza anymore; Hamas is. So if people in Gaza don't have a proper home, that is not Israel's fault.

That list (food, hygiene products, socks/underwear, and tv/radios) is a far cry from your "anything they need" assertion.
And as a friend of mine mentioned to me, if Gaza is an open air prison where people live with no roof over their head, where the hell does all the aid money sent to Gaza go????????? And who, exactly is responsible for the lack of roofs - wouldn't it be Palestinian gov't? They want a state, start acting like one! 1st order of business for a state is taking care of it's "citizens", not looking the other way as some of those "citizens" procure and lob rockets at a neighbor state

This is a stupid and smug article.

Campaign ad: Guns vs. Drones
One could view Rosendale's ad as just part of a larger trend of political candidates, seemingly all Republican, releasing ads in which they literally use a gun to make a political point. But it's almost certainly the first camapign [sic] ad to literally target a drone. - Yahoo News, 04-15-2014 Because in the land of the upstanding white rural militia and tinfoil hats, ...

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry. Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...

The Abortion Restriction That’s Too Extreme for Most Pro-Lifers
Earlier this month, lawmakers in Kansas ended this session's debate over abortion on a surprisingly low-key note. The Republican leadership shepherded two minor tweaks to existing abortion policies through the legislature, while staving off a far more contentious measure: a bill that would criminalize abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. The bill's advocates ...

Women on Front of Bundy Standoff - the Latest From the Front
But the scene above took place four years before Monica, in 1994, long before Clinton handed his enemies a scandal on a platter that seemingly made such references acceptable. It was not at a Republican caucus or Christian Coalition meeting, but at a gathering of right-wing "Patriots" who had come to hear about forming militias and common-law courts and defending their gun rights ...

Russ Campbell’s Blog: Military Threat Is Essential to Effective Diplomacy
Pres­i­dent Theodore Roo­sevelt fa­mously said: "speak softly, and carry a big stick."

Per­haps in this proverb lies is a valu­able les­son for lead­ers of the West­ern democ­ra­cies, and es­pe­cially for Pres­i­dent Obama.

TurboTax Maker Linked to ‘Grassroots’ Campaign Against Free, Simple Tax Filing - ProPublica
The letters and op-eds don't mention that, as ProPublica laid out last year, return-free filing might allow tens of millions of Americans to file their taxes for free and in minutes. Or that, under proposals authored by several federal lawmakers, it would be voluntary, using information the government already receives from banks and employers and that taxpayers could adjust. Or that the concept ...
