    Please, in both this post and your post 270, you have resorted to the use of a foreign language again. I would respectfully ask you to cease doing that now! Let's try to nip this in the bud shall we?

    Actually, not really. Weisswurst: Whitish German sausage made chiefly of veal. It is only a foreign language in the sense that "Champagne" is.

    The best defense is a good offense.

    The best defense is having the good sense to avoid fights when fighting isn't actually necessary to preserve your personal life or liberty.

    "War is good business, and business is good." The business can only get better if the people in the armaments business can get enough into the Al Queda types. If you don't have a war, start one. It's like selling yo-yos and giving better ones to some contestants and if they win, everybody else just has to have one of the better ones. Just business. In this case, the money is provided by hard working taxpayers, that'd be you, me and Grandma. The profits are Corporate and offshored to a tax haven, like Halliburton. Just business.

    And the worst defense is a bad offense, the latter in which the US military has plenty of experience.

    Just announced. The US has confirmed it has undeniable proof that Assad in fact used chemical weapons against his own people and, as a result, the US will begin supplying lethal military aid to the rebels for the first time since the war began 2 years ago.

    About damn time.
    Are we giving it away, or are we selling it? I much prefer we sell it.

    No, it isn't. You're just throwing out ****. Even if you think he is, being just as silly doesn't help. The bigger point is really can't trust anyone to be nor remain friendly to us. We've made this mistake before.

    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.
