    I am sure you believe you are being clever. You aren't.

    On the red-herring scale, your comment goes off the chart.

    Good grief.
    So it's a red herring to ask that my government, spending MY money do so within the parameters of their binding governing document that they swear to uphold? You have some funny ideas on what government should be able to do friend.

Air superiority gives all of our forces a substantial edge on real battlefields. The underlying technologies for offense and defense are not standing still.

    This weapons platform is like a handful of silver bullets. One might not use them everyday. But when one needs them nothing else will do.
    We already have Air superiority over Russia and China.The wright bros had Air superiority over N.Korea.

    Earlier I wrote, "Republicans, and therefore the American people, also won the election. The House of Representatives is firmly in Republican control. We can save the half of the country that voted for the Marxist from themselves if we get a Speaker who is conservative, principled and courageous. This will be difficult but it is not impossible.

    The House can, and should, defund all of the leftist organizations. Then it should begin on all of the extra-constitutional agencies and departments. We can fix this. Yes we can!"

    I occasionally drop letters when I type. "Then it should begin on all of the extra-constitutional agencies and departments" should read Then it should begin in on all of the extra-constitutional agencies and departments.

    We cannot defund all of the extra-constitutional agencies and departments. But we can insist on real cuts. In the first year we can have a real 10% reduction on busybody bureaucrats enforcing busybody rules. We can reduce their operating budgets and their manpower ceilings. We can insist on budget cuts for the optional agencies that rival the ones for the mandatory agencies.

    Do you believe that everyone is "static"?

    Can you tell me how many engineers, physicists, and mathematicians are working on the stealthy aircraft problem in Russia? Can you describe the results of the last dozen flight tests for airframes that are not yet in full rate production? Can you identify the synergistic effects of near-stealthy and stealthy aircraft combined with better radars? Can you tell me what the next five years will be like for each of our opponents? What about the next ten years?

    where are you going to find enough loons in the house to implement these measures?the republicans lost six seats in the general, mostly teabagger loons. the sane republicans are not going along with that loony agenda.just ask bohner.
