    I don't particularly think there's anything glamorous about war. That romantic bull**** ended the first deploy when I saw splattered brain matter of what was left of little kids lying beneath blankets after a strafing run by an A-10.

    Walk a mile in their boots..walk a mile in their boots

    We fight wars as a necessary means of defending ourselves against those who would otherwise destroy a principled, ordered and moral society. In the process, we send young people into this morass to defend those principles. What are they exposed to? The chaos and horror which represents the exact converse of what we are trying to accomplish. Morally and existentially confusing? Well, **** me..especially as life is often cheapened and devalued, many times as a matter of psychological survival

    If you don't expect this kind of **** to happen then don't send tough men to war. I would never judge these guys after putting them in the postion we have and I wish everyone of them a safe trip home to the heros welcome that they will never receive.

    Again....Walk a mile in their boots..walk a mile in their boots

    "Fatherland" might be a poor choice of words. What other word might work? "Motherland"? "Our Country"?

    don't you ever wonder why you constantly face this accusation, while most other Conservativs don't?

    see, typical. too gutless to actually come out and call me a racist, like a man would. instead you insinuate it and hide behind semantics like a little girl
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    all your posts.

    1. your posts are routinely filled with baseless accusations, unfounded speculation and groundless claims and when called on them you cry "I made no such claim"

    and yet you are one of the first to squeal for "proof" any time someone posts something you disagree with.

    2. you regularly insult other posters, you insinuate that people are liars, idiots, ignorant, silly, etc

    and yet you are quick to bleat "don't bring my job into this" whenever anyone says anything about you.

    you are a hypocrite. you constantly cry about others doing the exact same things you yourself do.

    and you have proved once again, that you are 100% incapable of telling the truth.

    every accusation you have made against me is a lie. Every single one.

    nice going.

    now, I know you would much rather talk about me than the thread, but that's just childish and ignorant.

    so let's get back to the OP, shall we?

    The problems and silliness certainly goes both ways. But neither is as bad as the other tries to make them, and neither is different enough from the other to give us the kond of choice and debate we should have. Of course, we really don't know how to debate with reasons these days. We short cut with name calling and trying to paint the other as the most negative thing we can imagine. It's lazy and cheap, but sadly works, tarring the other and helping to assure low participation in the process.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
