    The family are obviously right wing Republican Xtians and the ones actually responsible for their sons brainwashing, poor judgement and ultimate death. But, god (and Trumpy) work in mysterious ways so I've been told.

    He was from some sort of religious group/family. The father puts all the blame on Obama!

    As I said before - these assholes think they can go anywhere and do anything because Jesus is on their side and they are Americans.

    What kind of school and parent allows their kid to go to North Korea unless there is an ulterior motive? None!

    If you go to a place like North Korea you have to expect to not be treated very well - they don't want you for any other than propaganda purposes.

    It's about time people like this realize their actions have serious consequences just like voting!

    No tears from me just like the asshole congressman who thinks everyone should conceal carry and then eats the lead.

    Very simple - if you don't want bad things to happen to you don't go to bad places or do bad things.

    I have no (zero) compassion for this kid or his family - sorry, you make stupid decisions in life and you suffer the consequences.

    Vice News has an article on left extremism...

    As this article points out, where the Dems failed is by not contingent to actually fight after Vietnam Nam ended. They just gave up and became a Republican lights pretty much. When you try to compromise with people who have no intention of compromising with you on anything (modern Republicans) you have zero chance of success. When the Dems were in control of everything 8 years ago you didn't see the Republicans just roll over and say "poor us" they fought back with every dirty trick in the book and ended up winning in the end, unlike the Democrats.

    Dutch is 100% correct!

    We live in another world than the one we lived in growing up. At least in the 60's & 70's Republicans were both liberal and conservative (as the Dems were). Today's Republicans are nothing more than Tea Party thugs that have taken over the Republican Party. They have no morals, worship the 1% and are destroying the country. They have no desire to help or support their constituents only the 1%.

    Yea...we also had government sanctioned discrimination, women were unintentionally killing themselves with coat hangers, black people were hanged for sport, and nearly 60,000 American soldiers were killed in a war in a far off land.

    Oh, the glory days!


    Republicans were both liberal and conservative and Democrats were both liberal and conservative because the definition of liberal and conservative was different back then.

    Southern Democrats and Southern Republicans were explicitly racist and Northern Democrats and Northern Republicans were moderately racist, but not explicitly so. That all began to change with the Civil Rights Acts passed in 1957, 1960, 1964, 1965, and 1968.

    Again - "Those who don't know their history are doomed to repeat it."

    I know my history and I lived through it.

    No real change in this country has ever been gained by rolling over and turning the other cheek. Violence is what makes people change whether we like it or not.

    From the War for Independence, the Civil War, the so called gaining of civil rights for all - everything this country has ever accomplished was obtained by violence against the "oppressors". Today's oppressors just happen to be called "Republicans".

    Im not advocating violence I'm pointing out that it's necessary, unfortunately, for progress.

    Im sure you have read "A People's Hustory of the United States" by Howard Zinn (probably the best book ever written on the history of the USA) but I suggest you go back and reread it so as to remind yourself how far we have come and how and why violence is sometimes the only answer!

    Anyone who believes Republicans will change their direction and all of a sudden become "good citizens" without being forced to has a big surprise in store for them.

    Violence and hate against the 99% by the right wing Republicans will only end when the public fights back because people like this only respect violence. It's sad but true and thus is only the beginning I fear.

    Marie Antoinette found out what happens when you make people "eat cake" and the Republicans are going to start learning the same lesson soon if they don't wake up and start doing the job they were elected to do.

    For starters - education, particularly in the areas of history, morality, etc would help some of these people make the correct decision when they vote.

    Unfortunatly, the average IQ is 100 and that means there are many low intelligence citizens as there are high intelligence or perhaps 75% of the population is average or below average in intellect. Unless we can educate these people in the basic concepts of what is really in their best interests and how they can determine when and why they are being lied to and by whom things will never change. Unsophisticated people are very easily mislead and controlled and education at least leads to sophistication.

    Religion also plays a huge role in this. Religion(s) don't want educated, worldly thinkers, they want followers, easily fooled, easily manipulated to do the "work" of their leaders. Religion and politics go hand in hand they both prey on the uneducated, underinformed and easily fooled members of society for their power. There is a reason a Trumpy has all of a sudden become the darling of the religious right - he recognizes they are easy marks for his brand of control and all he has to do is repeat a few catch phrases "Make America great again", etc, etc and all the deep rooted ignorance they have been "blessed" with their whole life takes over and they become their (and our) worst enemies.

    Today is D Day and nary a mention of it anywhere! How times change. I remember when today was a testament to so called "American exceptualism" .
