    These shitbags need to be thrown out of office.

    We are still in Afghan and Iraq? I thought they were going to be pulled out when Obama becomes president.

    What do you mean still there? We were never there in the first place, same with Iraq. It's all a wag the dog set up. 9/11 and the resulting wars were a ploy by Bush to use the increased funding to line the pockets of the GOPers and their supporters. Now Obama is taking the money and lining the pockest of the DNCers and their supporters. Jeese, some people are so gulible.

    This sounds like a good thing to me. Instead of money being spent to kill people it's gonna be spent on something useful here at home. Of course I'm against spending that money in the first place, but at least it's better being spent domestically than overseas.

    Darn, no more half-assed, mis-guided military adventures.

    What a shame.
