    How do you make that determination? If I am not mistaken there have been both Democrats and Republicans in charge during the last 35 years.

    I will as well as the other things I do to lower my energy footprint to that which does not require Middle East wars to support.

    If we all did that we could finally eliminate the root cause for terrorism.

    Guns, mortars, drones, rockets... all manner of methods to kill the rabid amongst us.

    If they can't... then don't sign up or get the hell out.

    They are Americans first, chose to serve this nation, and swore to defend this nation against enemies foreign and domestic. There isn't an exemption clause about not killing Muslim terrorists or any other sect, cult, group, gender or religion.

    What's the grammar difference?

    So they'll count you as unacceptable if you spell "color" instead of "colour"?

    Wow. Talk about totalitarian, sheesh. My teachers were just happy I knew how to tie my shoes.

    You're silly . Terrorists don't hate just us over the oil, they have fundamental and ideological differences. They hate us for who we are. One look at Pop Culture though, and I don't blame them sometimes.

    On the topic of environmental footprints, some of those hybrid cars have a larger footprint to simply build them than other gas powa'd vehicles.
