    Mr. Speaker, I once again find myself compelled to vote against the annual budget resolution for a very simple reason: it makes government bigger. ― Ron Paul

    Hell no... keep your avatar. Every Marine I've ever spoken to had that symbol somewhere on their person.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed 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.

    I just Google'd "Just War Theory". Looks like an interesting read. I will tackle that soon. I'm reading Bing West's "The Wrong War" right now. He was in Sangin, Afghansitan while I was there. Great author who doesn't pull punches. You should try it out. After that, I have John Adams biography and then "Killing Lincoln" by O'Reilly lined up. Kinda "booked" as far as books go. Thanks for the recommendation though.
    It would help if some logic applied.

    But we have recourse to act. We can act when a threat is immenent, for example. Iraq did not attack us. Was of no serious threat at all. So, it's hard to justify invading a country. In fact, we used much the same justification Iraq did to invade Kuwait. Saddam said Kuwait was a threat. Not an imminent the treat, but a threat. We and the UN said no. What do you think would have happend if the UN out powered us as much as did iraq?

    Again, the UN is only as strong as their members. The UN has no standing army.

    I think you will enjoy the read.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Which claims?

    That the world knew he wasn't growing and gathering. True.
