    It seems that I finally find myself in the majority thinking on the wars too.

    Until the people are willing to act, what they think isn't really very important, Joe.

    Before people are willing to act....they need to spend some significant time trying to understand the difference between what they think....and, what they know!

    There have been too-many lynch-mobs, in the past, who thought they had-it-right.​

    I've been there for a long time now. I can't think of a single person in the ME that is worth one drop of American blood. If they want to live in the 11th century I'm good with that. We cannot police the world nor should we try.

    Interesting, the democrats had a majority in both houses and punted THEIR budget down the road, failing to do their job. But it is the new congresses fault for the current budget that should have been done before they took office.

    Is it any fuckin' wonder confidence is down?

    I'm glad we don't have 1-party rule in the US anymore. That really sucked.

    Compromise with Obama on the deficit??? Obama don't care about it and INCREASES spending... and it is not right to compromise by agreeing to spend more and not less

    I joined in 1966 and I am not a fool. Douger is pretty brave sitting at his computer desk making judgment about things he doesn't understand.

    this way was never a good idea, We have never been successful in imposing our way of life and thinking on another culture. The people in that part of the world have been fighting since recorded history and they seem to like. As soon as we leave it will be business as usual.

    14 t in the hole, 2.5T dollar deficit, spiraling economy, never ending QE, and the best we can do is offer up 2 week continuing resolutions???????????

    Yeah, this will end nicely.
