"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
Disney...you watch any football? Gonna glare at any playoff games this weekend? If not, why don't you....I want you to see an analogy there. See...once the game has begun. Once the stakes are set down. If you're already there....then you are useless standing there and whining about how we got there in the first place. As long as you have boots on the ground....helmets on any field...then you must strap up. Hit somebody. Tackle a running back, deflect a pass...do something. Bring gatorade on timeouts if that is more your expertise, your role matters not. You simply and plainly cannot be successful at any endeavor while infighting on your own sidelines.
Argue beforehand, strive to change or alter strategy. Elect or vote or assign someone to call plays...but don't stand there afterwards and impotently complain. It adds nothing. It doesn't serve any purpose other than to expose a political agenda.
The billions "thrown" are necessary discretionary spending that happens to be a mere fraction of the entitlement spending that's now throwing trillions at problems created by guess what......massive government corrupt and inefficient programs. We have soldiers with their lives on the line every second of everyday, would you like to discuss throwing billions with their parents?
And we won't care to ride into this health care debate or where this argument of yours stands on "throwing billions", my guess is your argument hypocritically supports government run health care. Speaking of inconsistent.

It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.
Charles Martel, I think he was making a moral point and you are making a military point.
Is this war moral?
