Data From Skewed Polls Portray President Obama Unfairly, Media Buys It

Based on the barrage of attacks on Democrats from the  Sunday morning GOP talk show circuit, I found any realistic reminiscing of the twenty-first century is close to impossible.  

History, just a decade and a half old, is being rewritten right before our eyes.  I never believed history would be kind to GWB, but somehow they’ve pulled this miracle right from their collective pundit posteriors.The years following the appointment of President George W. Bush by the Supreme Court were tumultuous and terrifying.  We were “surprised” by the attack on our soil on September 11, 2001.  The inexcusable negligence and downright laziness of ignoring CIA warnings and taking the longest presidential vacation on record just prior to the monumental attacks were basically forgotten, as the nation rallied around the Bush Crime Family, the unsuspecting victims of terrorism.

The Bush Era came to a close in 2009 and Obama inherited a plethora of problems. Just two years into President Obama’s second term, he has had quite a few successes which have been quickly forgotten, yet the Democrats fail to capitalize on these accomplishments because they have to defend President Obama from the bizarre portrayal of his record. Somehow they omit:

Can you please cite some of the ways in which Palestinians living in Israel are discriminated against?
sexgenderbody sexgenderbody Said:

This is a good resource. Some quotes:

  • Population Registry Law {1965} — Requires all residents of Israel to register their nationality [i.e., Jewish, Arab, Druze] with the Population Registry and obtain an identity card carrying this information. The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Says: “a dual system of law discriminates between Jewish Israelis and indigenous Palestinians based on a constructed status of ‘Jewish nationality’. This prejudicial application of law is apparent in all processes of the legal system, from the rights to information and fair trial to detention and prison treatment.”
  • Family Unification {2003} — Under the 2003 policy for “family unification” non-citizen spouses and children of Arab Israeli citizens are prohibited from entering Israel [and living with their spouse/parent]. This means if you are a Palestinian from outside Israel, married to an Israeli, you are barred from living with your spouse in Israel. This does not apply to any other nationality beside Arabs. This “interim” provision has been regularly extended, most recently in January, 2011.
  • Absentee Property Law {No. 20, March 1950}A law to confiscate property from Palestinians inside the state of Israel. It confiscated land from 750,000 refugees ethnically cleansed from Palestine in 1947-49 and “internally displaced” Palestinians who remained in Israel. Before 1948, Palestinians owned 90% of the land in Palestine; in 1952 they owned 3%; today, they are a mostly a landless people. The law classifies the personal property of Palestinians forced to flee (or internally displaced) as “absentee property” and places it under the authority of the Custodian of Absentee Property.
  • Development Authority [Transfer of Property Law] {July 1950}Transfers confiscated Palestinian villages and private property to the Jewish National Fund — Jewish Agency [Status] Law {1952} and Jewish National Fund Law {1953} — Establishes the World Zionist Organization, the Jewish Agency and the Jewish National Fund as organizations with governmental status in fulfilling Zionist objectives — the immigration and settlement of Jews in Palestine. Under a complicated interplay of Israel’s Basic Law, bestowing quasi governmental status and the transfer of “public land” to these agencies whose charters restrict the sale, transfer or lease of land to non-Jews, Israel has managed to prohibit non-Jewish [i.e., Palestinian] citizens from acquiring land or leasing land, including land taken from them under various statutes [see above]. 93% of the land in Israel has this prohibition.
  • National Planning and Building Law {1965}Creates a system of discriminatory zoning and freezes existing Arab villages while allowing expansion of Jewish settlements. It also re-classifies many Arab villages as “non-residential,” thereby creating “unrecognized villages” – villages that do not receive basic municipal services such as water and electricity; all buildings are threatened with demolition orders.
  • The Law of Political Parties {1982} — Bars the Registrar of Political Parties from registering a political party if it denies “the existence of the State of Israel as a Jewish and democratic State.” In 2002 both Section 7A(1) of the Basic Law and Knesset and the Law of Political Parties were amended further to bar those whose goals or actions, directly or indirectly, “support armed struggle of an enemy state or of a terror organization, against the State of Israel.” These amendments were added expressly to curtail the political participation of Palestinian Arabs within Israel – such as Azmi Bishara – who have expressed solidarity with Palestinians resisting military occupation in the West Bank and Gaza.
  • The Emergency Powers (Detention) Law {1979} and the Prevention of Terrorism Ordinance {1948} have been used to detain Palestinian Arab citizens of Israel without benefit of trial and without permitting contact with lawyers. The Criminal Procedure (Powers of Enforcement, Detentions) Law {1996} has been used to target Palestinian protests and make mass arrests to stifle political decent.

The reason women are turning you down for casual sex seems to be that, for one thing, a lot of you are calling them sluts afterward. Also, a lot of you aren’t bothering to try to be good in bed.

I haven’t heard of a person who has discovered chastity tried it, and said they hated it and will never do it again. I know they’re out there but I bet it’s very very rare. Simply because of the thought process that takes place in making the decision to put a device on. I truly believe that from the get go you know without a doubt if chastity is for you. Just like knowing if you’re gay, straight, trans or bi. For me when I found out about chastity I thought, “Oh yeah, that’s what I need in my life” You just know if you’re chaste. I truly believe this.
