    Hoe about stopping the extended war in Afghanistan that Obama gave us.
    Don't mention the other wars he signed us up for. Egypt, Lybia, Syrbia. Every UN action has a cost. Especially when we fire 98% of the munitions and 80% of the air sorties.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    A perfect illustration as to why ALL American who earn dollar one need to start paying more in income taxes to pay off this debt. Yes, spending cuts are needed. But there is no way that any such cuts can pay for this debt.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    I am not sure folks do not agree with you on that. My disagreement comes from saying we should turn a few knobs on a broken system, which gets us little but a slightly improved broken system. I think people should hold out for true reform. Stop talking (not you but the politicians) and work on fixing something that we know has been broken for a long time, but does not a real review because of all the political goodies in the current code.
