in a free democratic society, people CHOSE to know or not to know. How come the French know and the Americans don't know? how come the Swedes know and the Americans don't know? If we use ignorance as an excuse then you should extend this excuse to the Israelis. But that would be silly, and so is excusing Americans. When more-money-for-beer- and-less-for-car-gas matters more than invading and killing tens of thousands of Arabs, it's a sign there is a catastrophic moral failure. In a totalitarian country you can blame the government for hiding the truth, in rich, free, and powerful country where the opposite point of view is a few web clicks away, THERE IS NOT EXCUSE.

Hello, my name is Lydia Sizer and I am working on a thesis through Brown University in the United States looking at blogs. I am looking at how blogs affect mutual understanding among people of different ethnic backgrounds and I was wondering if you would be willing to take a survey I have prepared for my research. This research would give you a voice in determining whether blogs would be useful in aiding global security and counteracting racism. If you are interested, don't hesitate to email me at Lydia_Sizer@brown.edu. Thank you so much for your time. For convenience, please enter "thesis survey" as the subject of your email as I will not know who is writing to me. Thanks again! In addition, you will receive an email later from lscello@aol.com. This is because my school email is routed through my home email. Thanks!

Thanks for ur comment Anonymous!!!
in any society people chose to know or not to know! It depends on interests, morals, & culture! Thats why some people die to know the truth, & search earnestly for the facts, while others believe what they hear & don't bother themselves knowing the truth!

You are absolutely right about there is a catastrophic moral failure!
But you can't throw away the responsibly for one individual to unconcern for the real truth, cos everyone has got mind, that can consider whether to believe an opinion or not, regarding money, power, & free!

Breitling was started in 1884, in St. Imier, Switzerland by Bentley 6.75 . He did not start out as a watch maker but provided timing instrumentation for cars and airplanes. It was out of this rich history that Bentley Motors got its start.
A costly and good quality CALIFORNIA DREAMS that is not region free or high definition can also provide quality audio and video. But the performance of such equipment is restricted in the sense that it can only play CALIFORNIA DREAMS DVD from that particular region, with that region standard built-in. The standard video resolution can be at best 480 visible lines of details. On the other hand a high definition CALIFORNIA DREAMS DVD COLLECTION enables you to view 1080 visible lines providing a greater detail of a picture or image.
There are only a few names in the tattoo industry that are popular and well known. Hardy clothing is one of those names. The designs of hardy shirts come from Don Ed Hardy’s tattoo art designs, and have found their way onto nearly everything, from shirts and pants to hardy shirts .
