Ronny Edry: Israel and Iran: A love story?
So you offer a threat not to "insult" the aggressors because they will become even worse if agitated? How could the situation in Israel be any worse for the the Palestinians? By having their land seized? Oh...never mind...already happened. By having one set of rules for them and another for the "chosen people?" Oh...never mind...already happened. By having their women and children denied medical treatment? Oh...never mind...already happened. By having helicopter gun ship rain down incendiary weapons on hospitals and schools? Oh...never mind...already happened. Seriously, reread what you wrote and contemplate your error. Good people/bad people. Bah! There is no comparison on the character of the people.

Ronny Edry: Israel and Iran: A love story?
Preposterous. The two sides are not evenly divided over some pedantic philosophical issue. Israel is ethnically cleansing the Palestinian people from the land based solely on their race. This is an observable , proven and abject fact. There is nothing in this message that is about "love." Rather the message whitewashes an ongoing crime. Edry has had plenty of opportunity to call for an end to Israeli apartheid, racism and destruction. He is silent.

Colin Powell: Kids need structure
You raise an exceptional point. So much of education these days is based on the egos of the instructors and expectations set by the system. The fact is that most 5 year old are not ready to read. Sure you can pound on them for a couple years and they will make slight progress. If you wait to teach reading until they are fully ready, say age 9 or 10 (about 4th grade) you can teach the first 4 years of reading in 3 weeks. Same deal with math. If you don't teach a kid any math until they are 12, you can teach them the first 5 years of math in a month. Powell is wrong about "structure" and education in every way you can be wrong. What he seems to value is the ability to intimidate others and to have them jump at his command. Modern education wastes both the brains of our children and billions of dollars attempting to hammer junk into little heads that are not ready. He is not an educator. He is a naught but a slick politician exploiting the celebrity he garnered from an ill-conceived war for his own gain.

Ted has routinely purged comments like yours. They appear to be big Powell supporters for whatever reason. Maybe he is going to run for office again. Powell is en example of what you get when you couple brainwashing with violence.

Let's stop all of the political correctness, shall we? The problem that Powell is addressing is not an "inner city" problem. It is overwhelmingly a black problem. Until we stop pretending that this issue is affecting all children, we will never get to the root of it. This issue does not affect all children equally, nor is there a direct linkage with income. For example, the upper peninsula of Michigan in many cities has a lower income per household than inner city Chicago, but does not have the same level of violence, drug addiction, gang activity and all of the other stereotypical ills of the inner city. It is time that this nation looked the problem straight in the eye and addressed the real issue: there is something seriously wrong with the black culture in America. It is not a money problem, it is a culture problem. We need to fix that culture. It is broken in virtually every way it can be broken. The parents are incapable of stepping up. They were raised to be wards of the State. They cannot function without handouts, "help" (read this as free money taxed from someone else), "assistance" (read this as money taken from someone else), "grants" (read this as money taken from other families), "set- asides" (read this as money that would not be spent in this way without politics) and giveaways (like the free cell phones that will soon become a "right") There isn't on person in fifty in the inner city that has the ability to live without a government crutch of one kind or another. They are a demographic of what are essentially dependent children. We have children being raised by what are essentially State dependent children. Breaking that cycle will require that we cause at least one generation to become adults responsible for themselves, their family and their offspring. As difficult as this would be, the only way to do this is to remove the "safety net" that is, in reality, little more than the slave chains of the State.

Treating a bunch of little kids like soldiers is not going to fix the total collapse of the black family and culture. You are solving the wrong problem. In the city in which I live, we spend over $20K per student in the public school system (which is overwhelmingly black). This is at least double what an elite private school in the same general area charges. In this system, less than 50% of the kids graduate at all. Of those that do graduate, only 9% are at grade level and more than 50% are functionally illiterate. In round numbers, we spend $444,000 to graduate one child at grade level here. Putting it another way, only 3.5% of all children in this area grow up with even a basic high school education. 90+ percent of these kids are born into single parent households and have no father figure in their lives. These children grow up with no morals, no marketable skills, no education, no hope and no future who will grow up to breed another generation as socially immobile as they. This appalling situation was created by the destruction of the black family. This was done by transferring trillions of dollars in "the war on poverty" into programs that did nothing other than create an entire demographic that is now perpetually parasitic on the rest of society. This entire demographic now is harvested for votes by big spending liberals to continue the tax and spend gravy train while simultaneously guaranteeing that another generation will grow up dreaming of becoming a rap star or a wide receiver, fathering a half a dozen children with different women who think that having day care in their high school is a "right". We now have several generations that think that they are being picked on because they aren't being given enough free stuff. It is time that we cut the problem off at the root. The solution is to hitch up our britches and make the decision that will cure this in a single generation: cut off all of the free money that propels it. Cold turkey.

Why would you be "appalled" by the truth? Why is it that you become so indignant about Iran developing an atomic bomb when Israel already has hundreds? Why is it that long range missiles in Iran bother you, but they don't bother your in Israel? Why do you react so strongly to Iranian rhetoric which are just words, but ignore the fact that Israel has an active program in place of assassinating Iranian scientists? Seems to me that you are a little blind to reality. No one made the claim that Iran was all good. The issue is that Israel is systematically portrayed in a favorable light no matter what their sins or what the reality is. This young man is either a slick PR guy or hopelessly blind.

This video is either a sham or a man completely divorced from fact and reality. Israel is presently in the middle of a war with both Iran and the Palestinians. Israel is assassinating Iranian scientists and are in the end game of ethnically cleansing the Palestinians from Palestine. It is a wonder he can keep a straight face.
