    That's a useless observation and no reason for inaction now.

    Insight which is 11 years too late as that ship has sailed into history a long time ago.
    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.

    Maybe, maybe not, but it was already done, and President Obama assured us, the people, that everything would be okay when he really has no clue what he's doing yet has the arrogance to ignore those around him to try to advise him and takes matters into his own hands. He has demonstrated this dismissive arrogant attitude time and time again. He is putting people in harm's way over his stupid ideas which are not realistic.

    but to liberals they feel that the border is secure between the two baathist regimes of Syria and Iraq at the time..

At least, that what I believe, if they get involved which I think is a "slim to none" chance.

    Yes, 4,000 are dead. Will you feel better spending 4,000 more lives only to see the same results again in another decade? You side is responsible for this by invading in the first place. When dies your sued learn from your mistake?

    Sounds great to me! My retirement is largely made up of oil well royalties. The more expensive oil is the better it is for me.

    Please excuse me, I guess working for oil field companies allowed their corporate greed to rub off on me. Don't worry, I'm working on it.
