    More CON smoke and mirrors. YOU claim the liberals want to strip away 'offensive capability', but you can't say what that capability is. You just want to spout CON slogans with no logical support for them...

    Fact, it is called the Department of DEFENSE, but please tell us what offensive capability you think the Liberals would strip away???

    Or have you given it no real thought and will agree to whatever a Progressive says ???? Then repeat after me- "the USofA doesn't need a military larger than the next dozen other nations."

    Don't ya feel better now????

    Would have to meet the folks who think you're a genius....

    But you are doing the CON Dodge, what offensive capability do you think the USofA needs that the liberals would strip away?

    To be able to invade a European country like Germany in WWII or the Soviets after???

    Attack a nation that refuses to allow our conglomerates into their country to 'develop' their resources?

    Attack a nation that refuses to bow to our dictates?

    Seems that when asked a direct question you scurry away. YOU made the statement and yet you can't define the CON whine about liberals and our national defense...

    That's not a genius you be looking like....

    How am I wrong, you have yet to provide ANY proof that the majority of he left wants NO offensive capability of the military.

    You can't back you're **** up son and can't man up to admit you are wrong. Your partisan hackery comments are just that, hack comments and nothing more. You're dismissed liar.

Rather, the request came from Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Dianne Feinstein of California. They are, respectively, the ranking member and the chairman of the relevant Senate Committee.

    Moreover, Alexander defended the funding. He argued that “according to the Army Corps of Engineers, 160 million taxpayer dollars will be wasted because of canceled contracts if this language is not included.”

    A Kentucky kickback? | Power Line


    While I wish McConnell would be a bit, well okay maybe a lot, more assertive for our causes, he is a very sly old guy, and while he most assuredly could have orchestrated this deal, it was readily admitted by Diane F that she was one of the culprits, not Mitch there. Now he did not turn it down, it should also be noted. Maybe that has already been said somewhere in the thread, sorry if I am stepping on anybody's post. Just didn't seem like that tidbit had come to light judging by the statements being made currently.


    In any event, all this effort to make Mitch look like you Dem's in the Corn Husker Kickback and newest Louisiana Purchase deals seems for naught, eh?
    Maybe.


    I agree, McConnell is a sly old guy. Your link makes some good points....


    I’m not sure it matters whether McConnell requested that the funding be included in his compromise with Harry Reid. It was known to be something he favored and he agreed to its inclusion.

    As for spending almost $3 billion to save $160 million, it’s an argument. But the real questions, to the extent we’re genuinely concerned about this matter as opposed to looking for a “gotcha,” are: (1) whether the underlying project is worth the money and (2) whether the compromise legislation contains similar accommodations for other projects around the country, if any, that face similar circumstances.

    I will, but only if you keep on supporting radicalism with a limited understanding of the difference between government and individual, a radicalism which could cause major financial ruin in America and across the world. Deal?

    If you want to believe that $17 Trillion in debt is a good thing and that piling more debt on top of it is also good...awesome for you.

    If spending close to 1/3 of our revenue on interest payments isnt enough, add more debt, maybe then we can spend 1/2 of our revenue on interest only payments.

    No debt is good debt. Its a lie. We are in the trouble we are in BECAUSE OF debt. You Libs make absolutely no sense when it comes to economic principals.
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.

    If you'd ever want to address what I actually have said instead of falsely attributing things to me I've never said, that'd be great. It'd be a change of pace for you.
