    I think most that talk is hype. Bu if we go over the cliff, it will be felt.

    I'll give it to ya on the nation building, but did you forget the whole event surrounding 9/11/01....And what the Taliban said when we demanded they turn over OBL? If you wouldn't go in after 9/11, one wonders what if anything is worth projecting US force to you.

    No I didn't. And had Bush gone in right away, got OBL, and car home, that would have made sense. Using it as an excuse to invade two two countries recklessly, losing the goodwill we had at the moment made him a fool.

    Earlier I wrote, "My first estimate is that my taxes will go up by just over 10K. So I let one of my occasional workers go in November. I will still have to cut back in other ways. Money I would have spent locally will disappear in Washington.

    What did you think was hype? There are calculators that will roughly identify the value of all of the new taxes. Barack Hussein Obama's free health care will be very expensive. I think I will be paying about 5% more for the identified taxes. I saw on CNN that a family earning 106K will see their taxes go up by more than 7K. My household income is well above that figure.

    We have one small underground fuel tank. I think one more will do the trick. And water as well. Just a couple of hundred gallons, I think. I have a pantry full of canned goods. I need to take stock of what it would take for two of us to eat for two to three weeks..

    I deal with solar energy where I work. It might be time to add 4-5 square meters of solar panels on the south facing part of my roof.

    so which is it? either you think nothing required invasion of A-stan, or you think if he'd have done things your way it'd be ok....Which one? You can't have it both ways.

    About my household income as well, it it won effect me t all. I won't change a thing I do.

    We're both defining he act differently. Going in and out is different than in and staying. Call it whatever you want.

    I know this your standard avoidance tactic, but no. I've said the same things for years.

    I know, that's what makes it so funny, is that you really don't see how foolish your position is about Kerry and his attempt to play both sides of this...but you, you don't even question, you just parrot his lame ass excuse verbatim and think everyone else is out of step when they are laughing at you.
