A: Thank you for that information. That is very useful in making voting decisions. I wish I had that list before the election.

What architectural and eco-safe bills have been passed in New Jersey by congressman Donald Payne? by Q: What architectural and eco-safe bills have been passed in New Jersey by congressman Donald Payne? What bills or laws include Senator Nia H. Gill or Assemblywoman Sheila Y. Oliver?

A: The easiest way to get the answer to this question would be to write them a letter. This is exactly the kind of information their offices like to answer and they will give you a better answer than anybody here can. If you were supposed to do this already for a homework assignment and it's due right now, that's too bad for you.

Do people seriously believe the official story of 9/11 is the truth? by Q: do you believe that third world people living in caves conducted these near impossible acts? do you believe that jet fuel was hot enough to cause building to fall at free fall speed but somehow they where able to find the "terroist" paper passports in the rubble? do you believe that building 7 was not brought down by controlled demolition? I could go on and on but the official story is a monumental lie and the only way you can believe this is if you are a total drone who has done no actual research. Did you know NORAD was conducting war games on Sept. 11th 2001 where plans were crashing into buildings, this was obviously confussing so they couldnt react in time.(9/11 commision says this way just a coincidence) dont think NORAD can react please look up the Payne Stewart plane crash in 1999 see how they reacted within 3 minutes for that. Also did you know LARRY SILVERSTEIN made 4.5 billion dollars off of his world trade center lease because he had coincidentally purchased a multi billion dollar insurance policy for terroism only AND would only make that money if 3 out of the 7 buildings were completely destroyed, the media calls him "lucky larry". I can go on for hours, here are some sources. www.911truth.org, www.davidicke.com, www.infowars.com ALSO watch "loose change" documentaries ALSO The best book which destroys the official story and tells you the truth is Alice in wonderland and the world trade center disaster: why the official story of 9/11 is a monumental lie. ALSO read a document written by neocons like Richard Pearle, Dov Zakiehm, Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld and so many more called "the project for the new american century" or PNAC. The PNAC think tank became George W Bush cabinet/defense. 9/11 Is a complete inside job and was used as a pretext to war and to destroy freedom in america as we know it.

A: 9/11/2001 = FALSE FLAG OPERATION .... 'nuff said?

Do you think newer shows are better than old shows? by Asiah Crutchfield Q: I think newer shows like Suite Life of Zack and Cody, Phineas and Ferb, House of Payne, Ben 10, and Ben 10:Alien Force. I think they are WAY better shows than Looney Tunes and The Jeffersons. Old shows didn't have a specific story just like the new ones, I hear many people who are against new shows say that. P.S. The only problem I have with Disney Channel is that they should bring back Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Donald, etc. because they are what jumpstarted Disney and I liked those cartoons. I also wish they would stop showing Hannah Montana so much, it is starting to get annoying.

A: To me, no shows compare to any show by Joss Whedon (buffy, Angel, Firefly). If it weren't for his shows I'd say newer ones were better, but his shows own over any other show in existence.

I think I finished that Legend Poem. The Drum Of Drummossie..... maybe? by Mizzy Q: Part Two I can't get a title pinned down yet... here is part one http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=Ao6J1gKDzNrKnQjE2VfbAOrty6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20090804040701AANr3xw Kill" roared the Duke of Cumberland the hunt for the rebels was on, our lad sheltered from clan to clan 'til at last hope was gone. Escape from British opression became his only goal the drum his favored possession New world beckoned a call. The ship caught amidst furious seas Sank from the unrestrained storms the Graveyard never to be appeased They both, washed overboard. Clinging to drum tossed about heavens cleared him a path Saved from the roiling, no doubt By a Payne from the town of Rodanthe. The Scot still held fast to the drum healed by generous hands loved kindness bestowed by the sons new life, at last New Land. Donald married a lass locally no children blessed their home Tis still in the Payne family The Drum of Golden tones. The Golden Drum of Drummossie Drum of Bonnie Prince Charles Old Christmas Drum of Rodanthe Still beats in Hatteras' heart. thanks dah...that was corrected...somewhere....I'll have to find my notes! neomnan....you almost went over my head....I will clean it up though and...if the words "odd image" fits...i'll wear it....hahaha!

A: You wrote a folk tale in poetic form much like what the bards of old did and then told to the people from history books. My compliments for a great tale. As to critiques: *End rhymes S4 & 8 fist part, 1,3,5 second part *Meter: erratic length may actually improve flow if you try to stay with a fixed meter. Stanza 1 second part: 'unrestrained storms'? odd image This can only get better and it is good now with some more editing. My compliments.

THE SOCIALIST PARTY strives to establish a radical democracy that places people's lives under their own control - a non-racist, classless, feminist socialist society. I'M USING THEIR OWN WEBSITE ! " where working people own and control the means of production and distribution through democratically-controlled public agencies; where full employment is realized for everyone who wants to work; where workers have the right to form unions freely, and to strike and engage in other forms of job actions; and where the production of society is used for the benefit of all humanity, not for the private profit of a few. We believe socialism and democracy are one and indivisible.

A: Easily. Socialists laugh at comparisons like this one. Democrats are staunch defenders of the current capitalist system. Your efforts to move the parties and the country even further to the right have to be based on actual facts and not on ignorance and fanciful conjecture.

what do you think of this opening......? by ♥♪♫♥♫♪♥ Mickey Fukin Way ♥♪♫♥♫♪♥ Q: Rememeber the times of segregation? When white people thought they could do anything they wanted to do and get away with it? When whites were the dominet people and blacks werent even considered humans? In those times of segregation, blacks weren’t allowed to run for congress. In those times, colored people weren’t allowed to vote or even run for congress. Donald Payne was the first Aftrican- American Congressmen. can anyone tweak it up for me to make it perfect? can i email it to anyone for them to check it over after i am done? if anyone wouldn't mind............ no one?????????? Rememeber the times of segregation? When white people thought they could do anything they wanted to do and get away with it? When whites were the dominent people and blacks weren’t even considered humans? In those times of segregation, blacks weren’t allowed to run for congress.Donald Payne changed all that since he was the first Aftrican- American Congressmen.

A: I think you're on the right track. However, I would speak in second person. When you're talking to your reader. I would say something like: XXX years ago, Blacks weren't allowed to run for Congress, in fact, Blacks weren't even considered human. Something like that might be better.

In 2005 the Progressive Caucus crafted its "Progressive Promise" document, which advocates socialized medicine; radical environmentalism; the redistribution of wealth; higher taxes; the elimination of numerous provisions of the Patriot Act; dramatic reductions in the government's intelligence-gathering capabilities; debt relief for poor countries; and the quick withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. These measures, says the Progressive Caucus, would help "re-build U.S. alliances around the world, restore international respect for American power and influence, and reaffirm our nation's constructive engagement in the United Nations and other multilateral organizations." That sounds "O" so familiar.... "...it has been proven that they have not had an appreciable effect on policies." LMAO! The Kool-Aid is strong in you young socialist! :) Of the 20 standing committees of the House, 10 are chaired by members of the CPC. From "Congressional Progressive Caucus" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Congressional_Progressive_Caucus It's all about to change for the better.

A: Leftists always work undercover because nobody else really wants to live under their rule, not even old school democrats. This is from the FAQ page of the CPUSA website--- The Communist Party stands for the interests of the American working class and the American people. It stands for our interests in both the present and the future. Solidarity with workers of other countries is also part of our work. We work in coalition with the labor movement, the peace movement, the student movement, organizations fighting for equality and social justice, the environmental movement, immigrants rights groups and the health care for all campaign. But to win a better life for working families, we believe that we must go further. We believe that the American people can replace capitalism with a system that puts people before profit - socialism. We are rooted in our country's revolutionary history and its struggles for democracy. We call for "Bill of Rights" socialism, guaranteeing full individual freedoms. Until we win enough support to change the system, communists call for radical reforms under capitalism. We call for nationalization of the banks, railroads, and industries like steel and auto. Everyone who wants to work should be guaranteed a job or get unemployment payments until she/he can find a job. We say put the unemployed to work at union wages on massive public works programs to rebuild our cities, provide affordable housing for the homeless, build mass transit, and clean up the environment! Our outlook is based on the social science of Marxism-Leninism. We study history, politics and economics in order to change the world. ---Sounds just like what the dems are working towards to me.

A: I think you underestimate how dissatisfied the American public is with their own congressmen. The consensus on the street is that our government has lost the consent of the governed. The fact that 70 congressmen belong to the Democratic Socialist caucus only confirms that sentiment. And the reason you get so many thumbs-down is that the majority of Americans are flatly opposed to socialism for a number of reasons.

Thanks! I don't understand why is Obama not on the list, all these people took a stand since day one! WHY can't I find his name, I am so disappointed! Dave, these people on THAT day took a position, anyone can say anything to the contrary now, like take the popular position, but is that the SAME as voting THAT DAY with the info you have? Maybe that Dennis K. should be the nominee he is on the list! FROM DAY ONE! He is trying to have his cake and eat it too, he did not campaign for a seat in the US Senate until 2 years after the war began, at that point anyone knew it was not a good war! no where am I a Hillary supporter, she is better than Obama but neither will beat McCain!

A: No he's not on there he's a shyster double-talking lawyer, inexperienced candidate, and vicious manipulator, who should prove himself in the Senate, not use his deep pockets to smear Hillary 24/7 and undermine a Democrat win! Great Question and Documentation ;-)

Got this email that claims these people in our Congress are communists. Any one know how to verify this? ..? by fineDayguy Q: ...Does any one know where this caucus list came from? Was it leaked some how or does someone know for sure that it was fabricated by some Neo-con descendant of Joe McCarthy? I am sure making a claim like this is less than politically correct and circulating an email without any support behind it is what do you call it, Juvenile?. If there are people on the list that are not associated with communist in any way it would not be fair to them. So I would like people to give us any information they have that could either substantiate it or clarify for us in any way.

We can all breath a sigh of relief.

A: Progressives are socialists in sheep's clothing. The people on the list are all progressives.

A: 72% of the CBC is on this list what all the nay sayers are will fuly blind to is the fact that this list comes from the socialist party's news letter. if you go to the dsa web site and dl their FAQ it says they are not separate from the democrat party.

IS THIS WESTERN JUSTICE? WHY DID THIS BRITISH SOLDIER GET ONLY 1 YEAR IN PRISON, FOR MURDER? by NOMAD Q: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8350917.stm A former British soldier has admitted for the first time that he saw two of his colleagues kicking and hitting an Iraqi prisoner shortly before he died. He said he had not told the truth previously, but did believe Cpl Donald Payne and Pte Aaron Cooper had caused Mr Mousa's death that September. Mr Reader said he had been afraid speaking out would damage his career. The father-of-two died the following day, having suffered 93 separate injuries, including fractured ribs and a broken nose. Cpl Payne became the first member of the British armed forces to be convicted of a war crime when he pleaded guilty at a court martial in September 2006 to inhumanely treating civilians. He was dismissed from the Army and sentenced to one year in a civilian jail. Six other soldiers who faced the court martial were all cleared on all counts in March 2007. "I don't believe he was a threat. I do not even believe he was trying to escape, I just think he was injured and wanted to get help," Mr Reader said. "I saw them struggling with him. One of them - I cannot remember which one - was trying to get the sandbag on his head. Baha Mousa was struggling and he seemed to be trying to break free. "I saw Payne and Cooper kicking and hitting Baha Mousa trying to get him in the room." Mr Reader said Mr Mousa was "screaming" and at the sight of the treatment he had chosen to leave the room. "I just walked out of the room... because I wanted nothing to do with that. This was not what I had signed up for," he said. Mr Reader then told of returning to the room 10 minutes later and finding Mr Mousa slumped on the floor and unresponsive. After seeing Mr Musa being carried out on a stretcher, Cpl Payne then said, 'If anyone asks, he banged his head' JUST ANOTHER REASON WHY I HOPE ALL THESE MURDEROUS SOLDIERS GET SLAUGHTERED. BOTH THE TERRORISTS WHO WERN'T THERE BEFORE KILLING INNOCENT PEOPLE, AND THE MURDEROUS US/UK SOLDIERS, ARE TWO CHEEKS OF THE SAME BACKSIDE!! @Edna- you're right BUT, although soldiers like this create more terrorists, so does the nature of the punishment handed out. If that was an American or British soldier killed, how many life sentences do you think he would have received if it was the other way around. This is what creates the feeling that a Western life, is worth more than an Arab's life. @former democract- but being a redhead is a punishment for life. YES- Coupled with the acts at Guantanamo, bagram, abu graib etc...this is the military order of things. @risky biz- i'm sorry you don't like me. lol. i'm sure not all soldiers are this bad, but the fact is that you guys are over there for what reasons??? whilst innocent people are being killed.
