... Speaking of individuals, Peace is not possible without individual Freedom...something our Founding Fathers clearly understood. The human spirit longs to be Free and will choose Freedom if given a real option. Thing is, to hold onto that Peace we must, ironically, create that option by fighting for our Freedom from those who would enslave us now and again. We've been conditioned to systematically surrender our Freedom by the world's cleverly disguised freedom-zappers under the guise of 'democracy' and the corresponding creation of continual military conflict throughout the world. As a people, we will never know lasting peace until we say 'No More!'.

I worked with PUK and KDP peshmerga in the not so distant past. These are not rich people with means. They are humble patriotic people only wishing to be left alone to live in peace. I salute a true hero today. Thank you, Defender Park.

Quick and dirty economics lesson for the remedial students:
50% of $100 is less than 10% of $1000
Lowering taxes tends to increase pay and jobs, because its money going back into the economy instead of down the zero gain government drain. Do a little research and learn a little history, and by GOD move out of your mom’s basement!!!
That only works during non-war time. Tax cuts during war time have never resulted in a budgetary surplus. But yes...if we stop spending on the war effort and then cut taxes, pay and jobs would increase and a surplus would be generated by having more tax payers "in the system". But if we don't cut spending and yet still cut taxes, budget deficits will increase to even higher levels than they are now.
Considering I work in finance (and not from my "mother's basement"), I enjoyed this exchange immensely. Thanks for that.

When is the last time you saw a composite of anyone other than a white male in crime reporting?

Don’t forget the Stars and Stripes has already been labeled offensive, there is no longer anything sacred. If there is no creator all things are permissible. That is how the left thinks.

Equal Opportunity complaints and the like are always predicated on if the complainant FEELS offended. Its is not based on fact in any way, only feelings, yet somehow it is enforceable law. No one can hope to defend themselves, and you are guilty even when proven innocent in these matters.
I could make the case we are being invaded, we have millions of foreign nationals, given instructions by their home government, marching on our capital with a foreign flag at the front of their column. They are taking our resources and murdering our citizens, sounds like a textbook invasion to me.

The extreme weakness we have displayed in the last 7.5 years needs to be countered, I would want our enemies to know I have an itchy trigger finger. Currently we could get hit by a limited nuclear attack and our leaders would not respond in kind. Nukes kill bad guys and the people who support / allow them to flourish, and they put far fewer of my brothers/ sisters in harm’s way. Will he randomly sling nukes? NO. Should the enemies of freedom fear our nuclear arsenal again? YES. Who blabs more than National Security Advisers? This may be an excellent use of fools to inspire fear in the enemy, its what I would do.

@mind @khasmin Threatening to use a nuke is the best way to use a nuke. If the leaders of antagonist governments are afraid of getting nuked, we don’t have to pay 100mil per hostage.

Nukes are for making the bad guys behave, they need to know we have the will to use them if needed. Hopefully this will give them a healthy dose.

Looked like a liberal to me. You libs did a study expecting conservatives to be found to have more anti-social and psychotic tendencies, the software you used to read the results confirmed exactly that….. BUT then you realized you set up your own software backwards…. Proving by your own study that libs are the violent psychos.

WELCOME to NEWSPEAK. Anyone who is not a minority must be considered to have double-plus ungood intentions whenever they open their mouths.

Hilary is damaged goods but the Dems will never drop her. Like heroin to an addict, it brings you nothing but bad things, but makes you feel good for a minute.

Not really cool dude, illegals should be sent back but that is really close to a racial slur.
