December 11, 2013

If we withdraw from the world, become isolationists... who will stop them? If we do not fight our enemies as we find them anywhere is the world, who will? If we stop fighting our enemies, will they stop fighting us? There really is not option we either fight them to win or allow ourselves to be defeated.

Winston Churchill, in my opinion the most important man of the 20th century, said that "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance". That vigilance is even more important today in a world where transportation and communication is virtually instantaneous, and weapons of mass destruction could find their way into disastrous hands. Never forget that without "providing for the common defense, we do not have a country.

House Speaker John Boehner blasted outside groups for their criticism of the bipartisan budget deal, delivering an unusually sharp rebuke today to tea party and conservative activists while signaling he has had just about enough of their intransigence.

"They're using our members and they're using the American people for their own goals," Boehner said, his voice rising with anger during a news conference at the Capitol today. "This is ridiculous. Listen, if you are for more deficit reduction, you are for this agreement."

wow usedto, I see you are trying to mimic ToT - it's not working. Boehner and the rest of the progressives need to decide that the GOP has changed and they need to become Dems. The TEA party will be the new GOP.

And the "Old Guard" dems and pubs don't use their members and the American people for their own goals? That is the current state of American politics and anyone who actually thinks it is not is extremely naive. I think Boehner, like far too many of the current members of congress, is out of touch with reality.

Here's the source usedto: Taxed Enough Already...TEA. There are more of us than you could possibly imagine so go ahead and try to minimize us. We have no 'leaders' for you to attack, it's a grass roots movement and that scares both libs and progressive Repubs causing them to have to attack each one of us individually. Pick me! Please!

If American History was taught properly, everyone would understand the significance of December 7. Also, in September 11, the actual numbers, 9-11, not notable from an emergency number perspective known by Americans, but the Islamist importance to those numbers dates back to the rising of Mohammad. Who has done the most to render 9-11 just a bad day? The Fort Hood shootings were certainly an Islamist attack on Americans. During the last election, Benghazi was diminished to a bad video, (of which Libya cannot support any video on the internet) and can we all remember "Al Qeida is on the run"? I believe we should take these notable days, and use them to educate and exchange ideas, instead of just looking back. Know your enemy.

That's right usedto, no leaders. Just us individualist Americans who, unlike you, do not require a 'leader' to tell us what to do, think or how to behave. You just do not get it and seem to think everybody but you is an azzwagon and we should bow to your superior wisdom. Ok, show some of it for once. There are those on this forum that represent ideals and ideas I will never support and many are, at least, articulate about it. You are not. As I've said, you have become creepy. I'll say a prayer for you.

Both sides shut the government down. Either side could have moved and neither did hence the government was shut down. Time to get rid of them all.

Obama's cut and run in Iraq, FAILURE!

Iraq is still bleeding 10 years after Saddam Hussein's capture Friday's anniversary of the dictator's arrest sees the country struggling with a resurgent al-Qaeda and a death rate double that of a decade ago.
