The way I see Mr. King is that the Republicans gave the administration more money than they asked for yet they refused to vote. It’s not the Republicans you RINO. You just played right into the Democrat’s hands…get a brain.

So if DHS is shutdown and there is an attack it will probably be in a liberal area and they will be screaming for blood. Hum.

For all that want her jailed…At all costs she should not be convicted prior to Obama’s term of office is over. She will surely get a presidential pardon before she steps in a jail. I wonder how many BO is going to pardon as it is.

OK, then maybe the House can send a bill limiting funding in the sub agency that would handle the immigration policy handling. Funding the rest 100%. Smoke and mirrors is what I see. Republicans need to make a stand !
Sounds like you were driving a newer Ford Explorer Limited, besides lane sensing and adaptive cruise control, you should have mentioned auto parallel park and collision warning . I have one and love all those features and more, Best part it’s American and doesn’t have bail out money.
...and HOW MANY OF IT'S COMPUTERS AND PARTS ARE MADE IN COMMUNIST-RED CHINA??

Spot on except you forgot about Egypt.

One thought, who is shaking in their boots right now? A: Iran. ISIS and Iran are diametrically opposed. Iran now has a foothold in Yemen, but that has brought fear into Saudi Arabia who are sworn enemies of the Iranians. So in the near future, the two sides will further bring to WW III to a larger audience. The only comforting thing is oil is being horded on the world’s market as an insurance policy if they start. That will only be a short term policy though, The rest of the world will get involved when oil stops flowing from the Middle East, they won’t deal with animals. So this “game” is very confusing but the end will produce the same result. I’m buying oil stocks as a hedge.

Nice observation. The problem is they take what the main stream media says as gospel. Even the president does get all the information, only after it is very filtered does he get it.

Agree 100%. Even better, if you saved for retirement your child can’t get any financial aid except a loan because of your assets. That is true even if you have $40K in income. My child is 100% on my dime if they want to go to college. If I never saved, He could get plenty of aid. Well there go my retirement savings. After my two finish college, we will be poor.

Before the first Gulf War we helped Saddam with his war with Iran. We had AWACS and AEGIS ships to provide early warning and Intel to him.
BTW- We still do not know everything that went to Syria in that truck convoy in the second war.

Were you there? I was in both Irag wars and Afghanistan too in command and control. I also spent a lot of time watching Sadam break the cease fire agreement between wars. I had high level security access, I know what I saw and read.
My biggest complaint with Bush is his State Department advisors told him to disband the Iraq Army completely, a big mistake. IMHO as big of amistake as trying to instill a democracy in Afghanistan. We paid the price for doing both, Obama made it worse in Afghanistan by sending large amounts of US troops on an impossible ans misguided quest. A lot move died there under Obama. He also released the lid on the Islamic pressure cooker by supporting the Arab Spring. The Iranians are smiling now. The next step is the war between IRAN and ISIS after one them takes on Israel. I just hope and pray we support Isreal …big doubts with Obama in charge.

I’m military and knew this all along. I will NEVER NEVER vote for a Democrat after what they did using the politics to discredit President Bush’s motives. I didn’t even agree with the decision at the time…I feel Iran is and has been more of a threat than Iraq ever was.
The destruction of WMD were part of Iraq's concessions to end the 1991 Gulf War, liberation of Kuwait. The search for WMD was justification for inspectors to be roaming around Iraq for all the years up to 2001. Don't you remember that Clinton was bombing sites when the Iraqii's weren't opening them up to inspection? Bush justified his invasion of Iraq on the basis of WMD, which weren't there. He discredited himself, then bungled the occupation. Our troops suffered and died for this.
There were recent reports that some WMD, chemical warheads, were encountered by US forces and there were injuries. These were leftovers on the back lots of some depots. I was not surprised at this. There were lots of weapons sites, heavily damaged by the Gulf War airstrikes. Would you want to be the Iraqi commander telling Sadam "Oopsie, we still have a few sarin gas munitions here"? I wouldn't.
First and foremost, thank you so much for your Service to this Great Nation :) You are absolutely correct about the weapons of mass destruction, as a lot of Military in that theater also knew and have stated. In addition, Russia was there, and in deep with Saddam. They scurried across the border into Syria with all sorts of stuff. From what if heard from former CIA agents in the ME, is that we the U.S. knew this but under the circumstances, we couldnt take on Russia at the same time as the war with Iraq had just begun.
FACT, Saddam Hussein and his evil sons, had been working on missile deals with NK. The negotiations occurred in Syria, and Saddam had already given a 10 million dollar down payment. They weren't just ordering NK missiles, but were going for a full production line to manufacture, under an Iraqi flag, the North Korean missile system, which would be capable of hitting American allies and bases around the region.Needless to say, they lost their deposit when we went into Iraq.
Finally, I didnt understand Iraq either. But what I have heard from top Military/Intelligence speak over the years, was that without question Iraq was a danger to us and others. But, their main objective was to surround Iran, the primary supporter/haven for terrorist leaders ect. Afghanistan on one side, Iraq on the other....sandwich and surround Iran...
gert, these were more likely to have been Iran-Iraq war relics that were disposed of by burying them in a large pit, which was the Iraqi's standard disposal practice. Once the disposal sites were no longer guarded after the fall of Saddam, some enterprising person was merely digging them up and selling them to us for money ..
Eric, Bush himself admitted there were no WMDs found in Iraq, and that is what our Inspectors were reporting to Congress, etc after the war ..
Did you ever notice that hard core liberals are always also darwinists? J-MO for example. Do you know why? It's because they firmly believe that they are more evolved than most other humans. And we- being a few evolutionary cycles in arrears need them to decide how we should spend our lives. This life stuff is not easy, and its a good thing to have folks like him around to set our thinking straight. Being he is much more capable of parsing information , and discerning its true meaning to our lives.

I know several people with law degrees that are doing something completely different now. We have too many lawyers and that is driving frivolous lawsuits and politicians that think politics is a game .

Actually you may have a point. Footballs weights are not that precise that small amount of weight would be proof. I would say you could do a compression test for “give” that would be far more accurate. Of course, maybe each ball is weighed before play with precise accuracy…I don’t know.

This is going to change because of oil prices dropping. The main growth in jobs in the US during the past 6 years has been because of shale oil and fracking. The current price of oil makes both less profitable and will result in an economic slowdown. Cheaper fuel costs will not compensate enough for lost jobs. The oil boom was despite Obama’s best efforts, now we are going to see what his policies have really done to the economy…It’s going to be ugly….this time the stock market is not going to help out.

Sounds good except the money had to be there in the first place. The #1 & #2 states have a high population of poor minorities and they would have to tax wealthy people out of the state to try and compensate. If you eliminate federal mandates, this approach would be more reasonable. The truth be known, a lot of those minorities sit at home collecting welfare because there is no incentive for work (even though, there is plenty) I am very conservative, however you need to realize this is not an instant solution.

I’m a military guy and I resent that remark. Yes there are some bad apples but to lump us all and declare us behaving like stormtroopers is worse than racism in my book.

Why do we need judges if they can’t provide justice? A computer programmed with the letter of the law can screw anyone, basically what this judge did. Civil Law is a rigged game and the shear number of regulations in this country ensures that anyone can be screwed, especially if you can’t afford a lawyer. Even if you can afford one, you may go bankrupt fighting the system.
There was a guy hanging at the Berkely off ramp of the Interstate 5, I5. Madigan Gate to Ft. Lewis, now JBLM, He was tracked by local TV Reporter, Admitted to making 6K a month panhandeling, drives a new Mercedes, that he parks at Galloping Getries restaurant. He lives in a house in Gravely Lake, paid for by the generosity of E5s and below. Talk about defrauding service members, the guy has a half million dollar house, in a highend neighborhood, claiming to be Homeless, driving a Mercedes.
See that Bumb at the Offramp? GIVE THEM NOTHING!
