    And now that damned Obama is going to go after those offshore tax cheats, I don't know what the world is coming to.

    All because he wants to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure--which used to be a no-brainer.
    But it's been over four years since I've heard anyone accuse the GOP House of having any brains.

    I will say that your Congressman Ryan is the only GOP who sounded reasonable the last two days and actually understands the budget process.
    And both Obama and Ryan are starting with the same Tax Bill rewrite by now retired GOP Camp which the House refused to look at last year.

    And so far, McConnell has kept his word, even if I don't like his politics.
    McConnell is actually guiding Boehner and has an impossible task overall with his two caucuses .

    Any infrastructure bill would be good, it would be like killing 3 birds with one stone, 1.fixing roads, bridges and updating underground utilities, 2.creating jobs, and 3.putting people to work.

    But, we still have the GOP Neanderthals with NO on their mind.

    Actually, killing 4 birds with one stone, increasing revenues generated by employed people, good for the economy. Plus all the collateral jobs and revenue that would be generated.

    Their priorities are likely to be different from your priorities.
    Yup, another reason why when Americans went into Iraq, they should have secured those munitions, since they did not, we see the end results.

    This is an interesting clip here. I doubt the chickenhawks who wish to be this country's leader want or need to see history repeated.

    Ahhh, I see your problem now. You are getting all your information from Wiki.

    Big mistake.

    Aren't creating jobs and putting people to work the same thing? Just trying to keep count here.

    If you think the left can't beat them, then as a member of the right, what keeps you from going over there to fight them yourself? The Peshmerga is an improvised force, they will certainly take you.

    You have yet to provide any sources to back up your claims. Prior to our going into Iraq, the predecessor to Al Qaeda was a militant jihadist organization that was founded in Jordan to overthrow the king of Jordan. However, Al Qaeda in Iraq that later became ISIS was formed in Iraq in 2004. Even the Israeli lobby admits that:
