    Yes we provide a service but there's no denying we are a drain on gov't resources, not only that but all military spending is fundamentally a bad investment. Building a tank for example doesn't provide the same economic benefit as building a road, or a school. Maintaining thousands of nuclear weapons in our military produces no economic gain but costs us millions if not billions.

    Get off your ivory tower and realize we've cost the government more money than any welfare recipient, are you worth that investment? Am I?
    That is one hugely God-awful mis-statement of what a national defense is. Without a doubt the dumbest thing I have read here in a week or more.

    If you want to elect politicians so as to create a larger or smaller defense, then go for it. If you want to plead to our enemies to be not so bad, so that we can hopefully have less of a need for defense, then go for it. Otherwise, its in our Constitution to provide for the National Defense. Benevolence is not.

    When you join the military, you are hired to do a job. To be trained. To risk your well-being in the performance of that job. To earn all that you are paid, and to be taxed for sure.

    You not only have "skin" in the game. You got your flesh and blood in the game.

    I served plenty myself, so if you can't see the accuracy of my words as they apply to you, then worry not as I am speaking for myself, and for other members of our armed forces who have a better understanding of how it works than do you.

    Perhaps her office could put out a statement similar to this...

    'her remark was not intended to be a factual statement, but rather to illustrate the unnecessary Republican legislative hurdles designed to disenfranchise some segments of the voting populace reminds one of the Jim Crow days'

    After all it worked for Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.). I didn't hear many, if any, complaints from the right on that.

    Which is saying something... I agree.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d 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.

    Dean's pro wrestling yell was mild compared to the nonsense that this lady spews on a daily basis.

    Not nice... we got upset when the libs made 'lipstick on a pig' comments about Palin back in 2008, so lets not stoop to their level.

    Very typical... are you guys going to address my post about how she has a point regarding republicans' attempts to disenfranchise certain people, or are you just going to blow it off and rail against liberals?

    your point is that any attempts at preventing voter fraud is jim crow in secrecy.

    I'm not going to address that form of bigotry, instead, I will simply hope that you grow up some day.

    Stopping voting at universities is a way to prevent voter fraud? Really?
