    She will "evolve" (thats what dems call flip flopping) as is suits her politics.

    More intellectually lazy thinking. The military carries out the policies of a civilian govt.
    Tell you what-you get taxes and legislation changed so that only those that agree with them have to abide and I will go fight ISIS.
    See how silly your argument is?

    My doc and I go back 36 years. We were drinking buddies at the same pub, we chased women together and inhaled. He is a no nonsense guy and eats bureaucrats. Glad he had kids late so he still has to work.....

    We worry about the big ones, heart, diabetes, cancer. I beat alcoholism, smoking, hypertension, a question mark about my heart and diabetes. My doc says I am criminally healthy considering where I've been and who I've done...

    But I walk with a cane, I have mild osteo arthritis in my upper back [Voltaren Cream], have insomnia, some foot issues and other wear and tear for which there is no cure, only treatment and no sympathy. One day some years ago I was fighting what we thought was pink eye, was sleep deprived and sick, I learned at that visit that A) I was a diabetic. B, I had Iritis, an immune disorder where the body decrees your eye is a foreign object and must die and C X-rays of my back showed growing cracks etc in my upper vertebrea.....

    Trying not to loose it I said "Am I going to live?"

    His stone faced reply: "No"
    Isn't life a mofo? If nothing else sounds like you got some cool experiences out of it though. Iritis can be incredibly painful. Do you have an orthopedist for what sounds like stress fractures? Some meds can make that worse.

    Well the majority of civilians - the voters you know - do not want us to go back into Iraq. So you are on the losing end of that argument. So if it is that important to you then go over there and help out the Peshmerga yourself.

    There'll be no choice but to fight them eventually.
    ISIS in five years will be of course worse, and we will have shown the world that despite fighting a war on terror, we would allow such a state to exist for so long-inviting and inspiring others.

    Walk on eggshells for the rest of your days. At times, try to recall what courage is.

    More of the insanity of doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. There is a reason that things are getting worse in the ME and it isn't because of the lack of US military involvement.

    The osteo is so minor that it isn't an issue if I refrain from logging, masonry, dry walling and pruning large hedges.

    I am so covered with endo's, an opthamologist, dermatologist, cardiologist etc., I just show up whenever.....

    The mofo is that I am way too healthy to have to do this
