The Rant

Before you condemn Russia for killing 300 people, guess who supplied Israel the bombs and rockets to kill 650 Palestinians?

Netanyahu has great fortitude and guts. He would make a great president of the United States.

Illegal immigrants: Democrats see voters, and Republicans see cheap labor. The illegals see a place where government assistance is low-hanging fruit.

The commission needs Thurman to ask questions and not just be a yes-man.

I've decided to vote for the politician with the fewest TV ads!

Nightfall is being ruined by people who stand in front of the stage smoking, filming, etc., but not dancing. Be courteous, sit down!

It's wasteful for unions to hire people to stand in front of "shame on" posters protesting building projects. That's a dumb strategy!

This year's contest is over. Helen Burns Sharp wins the Person of the Year award for filing and winning her lawsuit against misapplying TIF funds.

Why do the grounds at the MLK exit off 27 look like Augusta National Golf Course but at Fourth Street look like a jungle?

Selfies are self-evident of a generation self-absorbed.

A vote for Rhonda Thurman isn't a vote for the citizenry. It serves to stroke her ego. Who else has their face on campaign signs?

Hamas uses its citizens as human shields to protect their weapons. They're savages. Hamas' stated goal is to kill all Jews. If Israel's defense system wasn't so good, thousands of Israeli citizens would have been killed by Hamas' rockets. Hamas' shoots rockets into populated areas in Israel. Get your facts straight. Hamas places their weapons in schoools, mosques and hospitals.

Hee Haw, Bleeder.

And the British accused the American colonists of cowardice because they fired from behind trees and walls and didn't march in lines out in the open like the Redcoats...and who won that one?

You apologists for Israeli genocide are sick puppies. You conveniently ignore the decades of oppression and inhumane abuse visited upon the Palestinians who have no choice but to use the meager means at their disposal to fight back against the Israeli war machine WHICH WE PROVIDE THEM. And the Jews call themselves "God's chosen people". What a steaming load.

Right on! ibul. Today's Israel eerily mimmicks Germany 1933 under Hitler. And just like the business world and powerful nations who wanted to continue to do business with Hitler stood by and did nothing, the same is happening today as Israel commits genocide. Today's Israelis seem more like offsprings of Nazi Germany rather than victims of that period. 13 year old I man al-Hams shot/killed by Israeli soldier who emptied his weapon shooting her 10 times, and has only been charged with misdemeanors. Even as felloiw officers warned him she was only a child. To which Capt. R, as he's been identified, is quoted as having he he would have killed her, regardless/even if she were three years old

Either Israel is purposely targeting civilians to inflict punishment to break the will of Hamas, or they are they worse shots in the world. Can't believe all that US made highly sophisticated weaponry could be that errant if used correctly.

If Mexico shot thousands of rockets instead of people over that border we would make it a greasy spot. Israel is not at fault.

"purposely targeting civilians"

Jew haters to the rescue of Hamas.

The people of Gaza elected and support the terrorists. I even saw one of their people on the news wishing for more deaths of their people to inflame the Jew haters.

If you are next to a school or home and you see a terrorists rocket headed to Israel go off it might be a good idea to leave the area.

Hard truth: Neither side is blameless for the never ending killing in Gaza/Israel. Hard truth corollary: Neither side will ever win absolutely. There is no peace w/o compromise. Blessed are the peacemakers.

THAT IS THE ABSOLUTE DUMBEST THING I HAVE EVER READ. Whatever dumb ass wrote this is a liar. The problem Rhonda has always had was asking too many questions. She single-handedly changed the face of the school board. What has Randy ever done but lose political races. This idea that a milk toast, panty waste, piss ant like Fairbanks will do anything but what he is told is absolutely ludicrous. Just look at his donor list if you want to know who owns him.

Geezzz...this one takes the cake.

Not according to 6 holocaust survivors of Nazi Germany. You should meet them. Here's a small introduction:

(1.) Hedy Epstein--born in Frieburg Germany in 1924. Was forced to flee Germany at age 14 along with 10,000 other children that came to england. Parents perished at auschwitz.

(2.) Hajo Meyer, born biefield Germany 1924. Forced to flee Germany to the Netherlands at age 14. Captured in 1944 and sent to auschwitz concertration camp. Parents died after being deported from Germany. Meyer has spoken at many engagements in the U.S. denouncing Israel and Natanyahu for its mistreatment of Palestinians. His speaking engagements are titled: Never Again For Anyone. He also write a book titled: End of Judaism.

(3.) Suzanne Weiss

(4.) Alfred Grosser

(5.) Change Colman Raban

(6.) Stephane Hessel--born 1927 forced to flee Germany at age 8, joined the resistance/captured, tortured by gestapo and sent to Buchenwald concentration camp.

What do they all have in common? They're actual Holocaust survivors who have taken a stand and spoken out against Israel's brutal treatment of Palestinians. Even accusing Israel of apartheid tactics against innocent people and using the Holocaust as a cover to mute anyone who dare speak against Israel.
