    Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC) told the Washington Post that Republicans are not accurately portraying their tax bill: It isn’t a middle-class tax cut, it’s a corporate one.

    Said Sanford: “Fundamentally the bill has been mislabeled. From a truth in advertising standpoint it would have been a lot simpler if we just acknowledged really on this bill, which is it’s fundamentally a corporate tax reduction and restructuring bill, period.”

    If the Chinese are foolish enough to jump-in, actively, on the North Korean side, we'll simply default on our China Debt, and take it out of resultant savings.

    If the Chinese are wise enough to keep their noses out of it, we'll pay for the bulk of it ourselves, and borrow from the Chinese to offset any shortfall.

    We would do it anyway - we have the luxury of fighting our conventional wars "forward", in order to keep our own society and infrastructure intact.

    The Vietnam War was paid for with a 10% federal surtax on income. Contrast that with Reagan's ramping up the Cold War while CUTTING taxes, and GW Bush cutting taxes twice, once for each war that began on his watch, lol.

    Wars are always paid for by the working and middle classes who bear the burden of war with their tax dollars and the lives of their sons, husbands and brothers, and today, with daughters, wives and sisters. The corportions and the wealthy make money off war and get deferrals for their children, keeping them from fighting and dying. We pay: the average Jane and Joe.

    Good idea.

    Let's ignore Chuckle's --- the 3rd-generation Hermit King's --- first baby-steps into the world of nuclear-tipped ICBMs.

    Let's wait until Kim Jong Fat-Boy has a rock-solid 200 or 300 or 400 weapon intercontinental nuclear arsenal capable of destroying Western Civilization.

    Let's not bother the little baby snake.

    Let's wait until it's actually grown fangs and reaches full length before we are forced to chop its head off.

    Yeah... that's the ticket...

    Oh, by the way, your psychic medium called, and left a message, saying that she's made contact with another ghost, perfect for you to channel...
