    Was that a yes? Drill here. Drill now? And you support far more nuclear power without all of those ridiculous rules and regulations that were intended to make it impossible to build any more plants? And o course you do not support the one term Marxist president Obama's jihad against the coal industry. Correct?

    I would be delighted if we needed to us half. Or three-quarters. Or even all of it. So is your answer yes? Drill here and drill now?

    Yes. But you said a senseless war. That war made sense to me.

    And yet the Chinese are modernizing their forces with the specific intention of hegemony over the Pacific rim countries. And when the time comes they will win.

    I continue to stand in awe of your brilliance. You just might be the smartest person on the planet. Or maybe not.

    It is a far better thing to be prepared to fight the wars we must in the way we prefer to.
    the amazing thing is, these people were furious with Rumsfeld's comment about going to war with the military you have when the issue was armor, and why the troops went into Iraq without enough. it's like they really can't draw the connection between spending cuts in the 90's, and not having enough armor in the early 2000's.

    True. Let's just wait for a war to come. Then we will get ready. These are rank amateurs. They play at knowing a thing without actually having done any serious thinking. Fortunately they are not in control. Unfortunately such people are exactly the sort who voted for the latest democratic charlatan.

    You going to try to tell me a majority of Congressional Republicans voted against the Vietnam war, as the majority of Democrats voted against the Iraq war?

    What part of the fact that production hasn't been greater than our consumption for the last 40 years, did you not understand.

    And you support far more nuclear power without all of those ridiculous rules and regulations that were intended to make it impossible to build any more plants? And o course you do not support the one term Marxist president Obama's jihad against the coal industry. Correct?
    I support safe nuclear power. Of course I wish we had a liberal president, but Obama will have to do until one comes along.


    I would be delighted if we needed to us half. Or three-quarters. Or even all of it. So is your answer yes? Drill here and drill now?
    You would be happy if we used all the world's oil? Did I understand you correctly?
