For help on how to follow a comic title,
On Aug. 9, 2004, when asked if he would still have gone to war knowing Saddam Hussein did not possess weapons of mass destruction, Kerry said: "Yes,
In October 2003, Kerry said Israel’s unilateral construction of a security fence was “a barrier to peace.”But less than a year later, in February 2004, he reversed himself, calling the fence “a legitimate act of self-defense,”
Kerry joined with 97 other senators and voted for the Patriot Act in October 2001. Campaigning in New Hampshire in June 2003, he defended his vote, saying, “it has to do with things that really were quite necessary in the wake of what happened on Sept. 11.”
But the following December in Iowa, Kerry advocated “replacing the Patriot Act with a new law that protects our people and our liberties at the same time.”
In 1996, then- Massachusetts Gov. William Weld asked Kerry, a longtime opponent of capital punishment, whether the death penalty should be applied to terrorists. Kerry replied that the idea amounted to a “terrorist protection policy.”He said then that such a policy would discourage other nations from extraditing suspects because many U.S. allies preclude extradition to countries that impose the death penalty.Kerry now favors the death penalty for terrorists, though extradition remains a problem.Kerry still opposes the death penalty in general, but says if elected he would not interfere with state executions.
In 2000, Kerry called the release of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve “not relevant” to solving the problem with high fuel prices.
But in following months, Kerry pressured President Bush to start pumping oil into the government’s emergency reserves. Kerry called for the release of some of the reserves, as well.
In a speech at Yale University in 1992, Kerry called the program “inherently limited and divisive,” and said it had “kept America thinking in racial terms.” He added that it was failing those most in need of assistance: African-Americans.At the height of the Democratic primary race in January, Kerry reiterated his support for affirmative action. Kerry’s critics question how he can support a program that he once called “divisive.” Kerry says he was speaking about racial quotas, which he opposes.
Kerry backed trade pacts with Chile, Singapore and Africa. In 2000, he voted to grant China most-favored-nation trading status.Having supported the major trade deals of the last decade – including the 1993 North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) – Kerry was heavily critical of U.S. trade policy during the Democratic primaries.
Kerry voted for President Bush’s “No Child Left Behind Act” but now campaigns against it
Shall I go on? There’s plenty more
Wait, this can’t be right. The libs complaining about the govt. But they want more govt because the govt is the best way to run the country, and they always have our best interest at heart.
Does ‘lib’ now stand for libertarian?
It’s gonna happen, and for exactly the same reason that it happened last time.
And of course never forget that the federal govt is taking in more money than at any time in its history. The problem is not income, it’s spending, which is also at an unprecedented level…
Your number are seriously flawed. We are nowhere near the peak. We’d have to gain nearly 4 more degrees global average to reach it. At the current rate it’ll take about 30,000 years.
Too much snow = Global WarmingToo little snow = Global Warming
Too much rain = Global WarmingToo little rain = Global Warming
Too Hot = Global WarmingToo Cold = Global Warming
So how come the AGW crowd was so quiet the past 2 winters when we had some of the coldest temperatures on record?
Maybe because they have tunnel vision and have decided the results before they get the facts…
….and in step two of Clark’s plan to bring socialism to the US, he’ll put everyone in state housing and on a state meal plan…
Never mind the fact that Hitler, Goebbels, Goering and Himmler were all socialists. Or have you forgotten the name of their party?
Thanks for not paying attention to the facts, as always…
If America were a tiny nation with one social culture, one language and no enemies, I’d also suggest a socialized society.
But for major countries that are an amalgam of cultures that actually mean something in the world, it doesn’t work. It never has and it never will.
Comparing some tiny Nordic nation to America is the height of hubris…
