    Maybe, but I've seen that type of talk here fall flat in the end.

    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.

    The few I've actually heard have not said that. But again, we'll see in the end.

    Again, perhaps. But these pages are fill with such certainty proven wrong. We'll see.

    We typically don't, but we have before.

    Sure, but the ones who were there against their will, we just left them there, thus we do leave our men and women in uniform behind.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    This "deal" was made public in 2012, why was there no objection to those 5 then? Then there is the fact that if they do try and return to Afghanistan they will likely be killed by our drones anyway. I think this is a disgusting display of hatred towards our servicemen and women. We brought that man to Afghanistan and we owe it to him to do everything possible to bring him home.

    Why do you feel that way?
