    Our defeat and occupation of Japan and Germany worked out pretty well, though, and South Korea is doing pretty well, too.

    How does the saying go? "You can lead a horse to water...."
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    They support the party behind the KKK.

    They support the party thats responsible for places like Cabrini Green, Robert Taylor Homes, Magnolia Place in New Orleans and every inner city neighborhood in America
    CONservatives, the base of the current GOP.. You know CONfederates?

    The wasted blood and treasure is enough to make you weep. Once you start down this road you should see it through. This is starting to remind me of Viet Nam and people desperately trying to get on choppers.
