You know, the wars Democrats voted for also, including funding, surges, etc. Attacked the Green Zone today when Bidenhole in town. Vietnam, I mean Afghanistan, has become a US drug war against poor people, instead of chasing terrorists. I figure it's only down hill from here as the government mismanagement continues. Deficits neither Democrats or the GOP have any interest in seeing paid off, the days of massive corruption are here. All we can do is pray our troops avoid harms way while the clown show continues. I think we just start by jailing every politician in the last twenty years, and start over. Any government worker making over 100k taxed at 100% over that amount unless they did OT. If they can make more than that on OT, hire some more people. I'll be honest, we were a much better nation under Bush/Cheney, as bad as they sucked.
