Justin, you've ALREADY told me/us this. You SHOULD watch and listen to learn about your error! These are INNOCENT MEN! ( apart from your other error about 9/11)

I've seen a petition (wish I could remember where) to release the large number of Yemeni considered innocent that have been cleared for release for a couple of years--wish that had happened on the anniversary.

Thank you. I wish those who truly need to watch this would do so. Is one thing to not know or understand but to keep oneself in the dark is truly sad for themselves and us all.

We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. Plato

I know Care2 members are a dedicated bunch, but for Angelika to take time away from celebrating her birthday to advance the causes that are dear to her heart is well beyond exemplary. We all stand to learn a lot from her....and you too Just C!
 

Angelika R. (144)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 3:59 pm
Thx Sam for the kind words. But I was probably silly enough to think-at least hope-that this cause would not be dear to only my heart! The rift between American society is painful. If more had been standing united that place would have been closed already.

the towers.
the dead we can match by killing a thousand of them for every fellow new yorker killed.

Sunday January 12, 2014, 5:42 pm
So what's the difference between you and "them," Justin?
 

Sam H. (403)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 5:44 pm
And the ones we're killing are the ones we call "suspects," tried and executed by a jury of drones!
 

Angelika R. (144)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 5:45 pm
Looks like the current administration is on a good way to try just that, huh? Drone baby drone-or what?

well boo hoo hoo.
my niece was dug out of the rubble. i volunteered at ground zero.
where were you?
behind a keyboard?
 

Sam H. (403)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 5:59 pm
I bet you have a dual citizenship, Justin!
 

Justin Vale (12)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:01 pm
and my dear sammy, there are many differences between me and them.
first and foremost is that i'm good looking and they're not.
second is that i live in a great nation that will go after those that mean me ill.
etc.etc. etc.
 

Just Carole (338)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:02 pm

Justin, HOW did you expect us to prevent 9/11?

AND who, outside the area, could have volunteered?

So wrong for you to pass judgment. MANY mourned that day. (And we are still experiencing the aftermath of endless wars, and more lives lost as a result.

You think it's easy to be "behind a keyboard" when you experience the levelling of all government confidence, and believe that your own "leaders" played a part in that domestic terrorism?

It's NOT. (But, in fact, your OWN accusations are being made behind a keyboard.)

Be careful before you cast stones.

 

Justin Vale (12)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:05 pm
the only duality in my citizenship is that i like both milkshakes and blackouts.
a blackout is coca cola and vanilla ice cream. ( for those that don't know what i mean)
 

Justin Vale (12)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:06 pm
chill just. you con't want none of this.
 

Sam H. (403)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:07 pm
This nation wouldn’t be great, Justin, if everybody thought like you. It’s great because it’s a nation of Laws.
 

Sam H. (403)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:11 pm
Your bigotry was obvious, Justin. You didn't need to spell it out!
 

Justin Vale (12)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:13 pm
well apparently your wrong. cause this great nation is doing what we want it to do not what you guys want.
knocking down the twin towers and killing thousands is not the same thing as knocking down a treehouse in the sticks where i know at least one of you lives.
it's not.
 

Justin Vale (12)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:15 pm
a bigot?
i know you meant to call me something else but you didn't cause the forum doesn't allow it.
cause calling me a bigot is way wrong.
 

Justin Vale (12)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:16 pm
and btw, sammy. why are you sending green stars to a bigot?
 

Just Carole (338)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:17 pm

Justin, please don't direct me. I don't respond to it well.

("chill just. you con't want none of this.")

You have no right, nor invitation, to stifle my involvement. (And, even if pressed, under the most dire of circumstances, I would never ask for yours.)
 

Just Carole (338)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:21 pm

Also, I have to note that "redirection" (without responding directly to points made) is a common tool of propagandists.

This diversionary conversation/interruption is starting to reek of nonsensical "Tea Partyism" (or, perhaps, from liquid courage).



 

Justin Vale (12)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:25 pm
don't get too deep, i'm a shallow person and i'll miss whatever point your trying so hard to make.
 

Justin Vale (12)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:28 pm
wait a minute did you just call me a drunk?
for sammy i'm a bigot.
and for the lady from the sticks i'm a drunk?
so in other words by disagreeing with i'm a drunk bigot?
way to carry on a conversation guys.
 

Angelika R. (144)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:35 pm
The only conversation I want to see here is one ON TOPIC and in a civilised manner! Justin if you cannot control your temper please move on, thank you. No insults here on my thread please!
 

Just Carole (338)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:37 pm

I don't respect your opinion . . . about anything, Justin. You're confrontational -- without addressing debatable comments. (In short, Justin, you are exhibiting troll-like behavior.)

It's that simple. (I tried to keep my remarks at a level I felt would be understandable to you.)

I don't know you; but I do not understand WHY you have chosen to select a submission regarding the closure of Guantanamo to homestead your soapbox with ridiculous comments and insults.

 

Sam H. (403)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:38 pm
And the star, yes it was a mistake. I pushed the wrong button. If I were fighter pilot, you would have been called collateral damage
 

Justin Vale (12)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:43 pm
calling me a drunk is understandable to me?
why do you consider yourself so holy?
nice cop out sammy.
and i'm sorry A. but nuts around here have a way of getting out of their shells.
 

Angelika R. (144)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:44 pm
Justin-are you getting paid for your input here? By whom? that is what I WANT TO KNOW:
 

Just Carole (338)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:44 pm

Justin -- You have every right to exist.

But, I'm sure you've noticed that you are not welcomed in the world of rational thought.

Go forth (but please, don't propagate).

 

Angelika R. (144)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:46 pm
are you talking about YOUR NUTS?
 

Sam H. (403)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:46 pm
I see your point, Angelica. But Justin is useful in the sense that he allows us to see what Obama is up against. People who are as ignorant as Justin seem to have found their way to Congress!
 

Angelika R. (144)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:50 pm
I wish Obama WERE up against AIPAC! and i still would love to know just who pays these trolls
 

Justin Vale (12)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:50 pm
another insult just?
come on girl, you're above that.
and if you knew who i was you'd be depositing bricks in your powder room.
and once again A., i'm sorry. but there are bats in the belfry. and i hate bats.
 

Justin Vale (12)

When I lived in Los Angeles, from time to time, I would visit nearby Westwood. Common fixtures there were a man with several plastic airplanes/missiles adhered to his chest and hat, and one man who carried around a cross (about six feet long, with wheels at it end) on his shoulder, with the sign "The End Is Near," attached to it.

Are you, Justin, one of them?

 

Just Carole (338)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 6:55 pm

And, BTW, Justin . . . I have lived the majority of my life in Los Angeles. (And as such, I became impervious to nut-jobs.)

 

Justin Vale (12)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 7:00 pm
another insult!!!!!!!!!!!
how many now just?
and if you're from la you'll understand this.
can't we all just get along?
 

Sam H. (403)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 7:04 pm
Angelika, I don't think anybody would spend any money on such a stupid troll, unless they're paying a penny an hour. And even at that, he'll be overpaid. He's a person with a dual citizenship. He couldn't possibly care less about the US, than he does. He's just motivated by hatred and bigotry based on some religious indoctrination. His loyalties lie elsewhere. He’s using the September 11 incident to drum up support to the country he really pledges allegiance to. Ask him about his outrage when the USS liberty was attacked. Maybe we should send our drones after those attackers. They are not suspects anymore. They’re confirmed criminals.

but there are people reading your post and not noting it.
 

Just Carole (338)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 7:07 pm

Just Carole (338)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 7:14 pm

(Just a thought, but maybe you need to manufacture more personae and send yourself more friend requests, so you -- and all your "friends" -- can verify yourselves and your like opinions.)

How could have a past with other members, Justin, when you just joined Care2 on Dec 23, 2013. Did they terminate your other profiles for doing things like the ones you're doing here?
 

Just Carole (338)
Sunday January 12, 2014, 7:21 pm

Judging from what I've posted already, do you honestly think I'm in FEAR of a Care2 moderator?

You are insipid. (and that is, actually, a reportable offense)

Justin, Bush, Cheney and the CIA LET 911 happen. There's no more debate. Every step by the CIA made terrorists were known right up to the crashes. There is no doubt that the bush admin was briefed and stations taken.
Most of the people at Gitmo are innocent. In the wrong place, at the wrong time. Snap out of it.

I'll accept your apology Justin, since I do not know you at all and know nothing about you, except the awkward views you've left on a few of my posts. Eventually you showed a more polite side of yourself. But I wish you people would do your personal games on a different playground and not on a post like this! Glad it all happened when my birthday was just over by my time zone because my cake sure didn't need such a sour cream icing! Thank you all.

Shaker Aamer: In Guantánamo, ‘national security’ rides roughshod over human rights

“The language that they use here at Guantánamo reflects how they treat us prisoners. Just the other day, they referred to me as a “package” when they moved me from my cell. This is nothing new. I have been a package for 12 years now. I am a package when en route to Camp Echo, the solitary confinement wing. I am a package en route to a legal call. ‘The package has been picked up … the package has been delivered.’”

Yes Sam. It proves what I had followed for years. The FBI watched them for years. Then the CIA made them turn their file over to them. The CIA knew when the one way tickets were bought.
