    Yeah, we need to let the UN do their job, and take the finger off the button for once. If it is determined that illegal chemical weapons were used on civilians, trials will be held, and justice will be served. The rule of law exists to be followed, not kicked to the side because our dumbass presidents think that we need to **** every horse in the stable.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Seriously, who is being more dehumanizing here?
    Well, please don't hesitate to put your boots on the ground in Syria if you feel that it's appropriate to consider men and women who are put in harms way and die in combat...and you too consider them nothing more than boots on the ground.

    If you're trying to make a moral comparison...it's just not working with me.

    If you hold the same regard as your opinion of what the military labels our troops...human beings, men and women who put their life on the line...and who you say has no more value that a truck...then I suggest you volunteer yourself...inside your boots to go to Syria.

    It's too bad that you don't have any more respect for our fellow citizens and people who die for us. That is really too bad. It's more than bad, actually.

    Morning Nimby. Yes it has clear context like you stated. But I would disagree with you on that part of a political point. Plus it made the point here too.

    Which was with regards to your response.

    Changing the tangent from Boehner and those that sent letters to Obama.....to now a statement by Rogers about congress can't be trusted. Is completely different then what you had stated about Boehner taking up a vote in the House .

    That's not going to happen. We clearly see a "if one can't pay" to save him or herself from disease and/or gross accident then they deserve to die or suffer...kinda mentality with quite a few in this country. And many who believe that to be true...are the ones who also claim to live the model christian lives.

    In other words, life is only valuable if you can afford it...regardless of the circumstances.

    Re: "No boots on the ground in Syria," Says Obama

    I have yet to hear any explanation of what vital American interests are at stake in Syria that would warrant an act of war. Radical Islamists vs. Murderous Dictator, both our foes. Seems to me what we should be dropping is bread/humanitarian aid not bombs in countries like Turkey and Jordon where thousands of refugees have fled and are living in tent cities. We seem to have a fairly decent relationship with both those countries. Our relationships would be strengthened by our willingness to help in the burden that thousands of refugees can place on any country and for building relations with a people in that region who most often despise us.

    As they say, life's a bitch and then you die. There's no current answers to a lot of social problems. Not that answers don't exist, but that our society and others around the world haven't come to have a consensus on how to define problems.

    If a social problem isn't clearly defined, meaning the full dynamics of the problem in layman terms, which are used to educate the grander population so that they can better grasp all of the elements necessary to under the problem...then solutions won't ever be effectively created to serve as being capable of producing long-term positive impacts.

    Usually whoever effectively defines problems also are usually involved in creating solutions. Our government (as well as others) tell the citizens a version of problems, which they in turn create solutions. But the citizens don't really understand what the hell is going on. They don't understand the true dynamics of a problem...so they don't know if solutions are viable or not...or if they are capable of being effective. In other words most people can't really evaluate solutions (good, bad, or indifferent) governments create for citizens. Consequently, governments are pretty self-will-run-riot. Governments today operate on self interest way more than on the interests of the people they should be serving. And this includes special interests groups, which operates inside of governments.

    Life is complicated....
