    Too bad he failed to mention how many Israeli kids are killed or threatened by the constant barrage of rockets sent (oh so lovingly) by the Palestinians! Guess they don’t count!

      Seriously? Get that bs outta here pal. Israel is the worst human rights offender on the planet. “Constant barrage of rockets”? You’ve got to be kidding me? Our unconstitutional support of this minute speck of a “country” needs to end now.

      Take your AIPAC backed lies and peddle somewhere else

        Israel is the worst human rights offender on the planet.

        Well, Zimbabwe. Saudi Arabia has its moments. Illinois. Canada. The Library of Congress, WalMart, University of Maine….

          Yeah, that’s funny. I wonder how funny it seems to the families who get bulldozed out of their homes so the chosen ones can expand settlements? I wonder if the people of the flotilla who were murdered would find the humor?or the myriad women and children of gaza who have been maimed and murdered? Yeah, I bet they think its funny….

            Don’t handle mockery very well, do you? But that’s what you deserve when you make utterly asinine statements. Israel is obviously not perfect or even especially good, but “the worst human rights offender on the planet?”

            I got the joke. Didn’t find it funny. And yes, they are by far..

          Slavery exists in many countries all over the world, it’s just not covered in the media or talked about.

          Yeah, and your point? I’m a bit more concerned with the slaves of this supposedly free country.

    Please people you need to research this “shooting” on your own, do NOT rely on the corporate media! The number of inconsistencies is amazing! For example, there was a reported second shooter who was taken down in the woods, where is he now? YouTube Robbie Parker, a supposed parent, who seconds before going on camera to talk about his dead child is laughing and smiling then seen “getting into character”..or, the purple van that was linked to the shooting? Or the retired ” psychologist’s absurd story? Or the fact that despite the installation of state of the art cameras theres no video? No pictures? Heck, no evidence! parents not allowed to see their dead kids? Think about that for a second…there was a recent drill demonstrating the same scenario. The mother worked there, no she didn’t. It was Ryan, no it was Adam. He used a rifle, no it was in the trunk! He didn’t miss? Really? Not one survivor? And what about the ambulances? And, finally, YouTube the medical examiners press conference—– absolutely chilling and amazing.

    Please, no replies until you’ve done some digging!

      Even more sickening is a 3 part youtube video called “the big lie” . concerning the mass murder in waco…. if you choose to watch that…have plenty of rolaids close by.

      • Anonymous

        Seen it. Yes, sickening. The way they murderd those people and got away with it is astounding and a testament to the corporate/military industrial complex owned “media” that comply with these crimes instead of actually reporting!!

        The worst part is that so may americnas refuse to acknowledge reality and choose to play pretend every four years by ” voting”……

    Yes! Obama has murdered hundreds of innocent women AND children via drone strikes! Heck, he even had a drone strike on Xmas eve! Xmas eve! And he feels your pain parents of sandy hook ( wipe away fake tear) ! Ha! Right….

    Wake up people..things are not what they seem

  • I notice that a theme has already emerged in the comments: inform yourselves. Those who consume mainstream media only have one version of relations between the federal government and the people, or the state of Israel and the Palestinian people. Those who dig for their own information see things differently.

    Thanks to Eric Collins for connecting some compassion dots on the final day of 2012. In the new age just beginning, we will listen for voices of love and clarity to rise above the clamor of name calling and insults masquerading as discussion.
