    I am watching Larry King Live and he has former Governor Jesse Ventura on. Jesse is out there a little too much for me most of the time, but he had a GREAT idea tonight. IF Obama is going to ratchet up this Afghanistan police action, then we need to pass a War Tax! We CANNOT afford to maintain thr two police actions we have in Iraq and Afghanistan, so we must pay for them. What say you?

    If that passes, then we will see who is for or against this war.

    One other idea Ventura had was that ANY member of Congress who votes to go to war, or send our troops into action in a country other than our own, must first identify a member of their own family who will be immediately called to duty to serve.

    Hey, why not pass a "Stimulus tax" to pay for the stimulus? Why not pass a healthcare tax to pay for healthcare? (OK so they're doing that).
    What a cynical maneuver by the Dems to let themeslves off the hook for the war.

    So, it is OK with you to borrow money from Communist China to fight "wars" that offer us no return?

    No. Is it OK with you to borrow money from Communist China to fund "Stimulus Packages" that are nothing but waste and fraud?

    The War in Afghanistan represents about 1/10 of one percent of the federal budget especially after deleting the money we'd still be paying for this self same military were it here rather than overseas.

    This is just dumbass grandstanding and a total failure to comprehend reality in the Moslem world.
