  1. I keep reminding Republicans that since their side has lowered the bar of acceptable behavior with their active 24/7 Obama Hatred – don’t be surprised when their next boy is in the White House and he gets treated the very same way.

    This is what happens when society lowers the bar of standards. We are currently in this world of ‘anything goes’.

    That’s not a very pretty world – and it’s not a productive world -IMHO

  2. I heard in the news yesterday that ISIS released a ‘hit list’ of Americans.

    Do you know what my first thought was?

    This sounds eerily similar to the Pro Life groups that released their ‘hit list’ of abortion doctors and their staff.

    Pray tell me – what’s the damn difference between these two groups?

  3. (from the link): “Then you realize you haven’t seen anything to support the idea that these poor fuckers are a threat to your home. You look around and you see all he contractors making six figure salaries to fix your shit, train Iraqis, maintain the ridiculous SUVs the KBR dicks ride around in. You consider the fact that every 25mm shell costs about forty bucks, and your company has been handing those fuckers out like shrapnel flavored parade candies. You think about all the fuel you’re going through, all the ammo and missiles and grenades. You think about every time you lose a vehicle, the Army buys a new one. Maybe you start to see a lot of people making a lot of money on huge amounts of human suffering.”

  4. This is a tough article. War flourishes in silence and denial. It *is* time for the veterans of war to talk. And for us to listen. Really listen. We must stop the neocons, stop the profits off lives, stop letting them talk like war is anything more than an atrocity!

  5. I hear it’s probably a given that because Netanyahu was reelected there will be war with Iran. The Israelis understood this when they voted him back into office I’m told. Yes, they would all prefer America fight that war for them, and sadly there are a bunch of people in power and elected officials who want to do just that.

    • But as I said – these Conservative Christian American politicians are being controlled by one very big flawed theory.

      Fundy Evangelical Christians believe that all Jews have to return to their homeland before Jesus can come back and take all the ‘saved ones’ to Heaven with him.

      So – these CONS need to help the Jews – but the kicker is – these same CONS truly believe that no ‘unsaved’ Jew will be allowed in Heaven.

      SO …. isn’t this entire theory based on the CONS in America are using the Jews to get to Heaven?

      What kind of loyal friends are these CONS to be foaming at the mouth to step over the dead bodies of the Jews just so they can get to their Heaven?

      If I was a Jew – I sure as hell would not want that kind of friend -the kind that will stab you in the back to save their own worthless hide.

  6. What do you think would happen if any Democrat asked the Jordanian King Abdulla to speak to the Joint Session of Congress?

    I read the interview done with the Jordanian King about his thoughts concerning the ISIS threat. I think it was on CNN? This was last weekend – so I need to do some research to find it.

    If you remember, ISIS showed the video of the brutal killing of that Jordanian pilot . He was in a cage and he was burned alive.

    This is the tipping point to where Jordan stepped up to the plate and started sending their own military planes in an attempt to defeat ISIS.

    And this is what it is going to take – the moderate Muslims doing the killing of ISIS.

    But these CON Republicans in America cannot understand that logic. They want to return to how the LIttle Cowboy President swaggered around and issued ultimatums like ‘bring it on’.

    How did that work out for US – not very well, huh? The world looked on in horror.

    But – how can you reason with a bunch of Fundy CON Republicans? These folks can only smell war coming and they love it..
