    I don't think you have even a basic understanding of imperialism.

    But I've never advocated for appeasement. And you might fit in good with Pinnochio.

    Can you tell me if groupthinking up a non-existent WMD case in order to sell a war to congress and the American public that cost hundreds of thousands of lives and $1 trillion U.S. taxpayer dollars qualifies as idiocy? Because if it does I have a long list of candidates for idiot:

    George Bush, Dick Cheney, "Scooter" Libby, Karl Rove, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, Richard Perle.... Do any of these people qualify as "idiots" in your non-partisan opinion?

    I do.

    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.

    Sure, in the movies. However, I'm willing to bet that you never witnessed any such DIY military justice.

    Nice dance, but you'll have to answer my question above if you want a response.

    That is so insane. Does that include your grandma? The disabled? Amputees and paraplegics?
    So you don't think that the elderly and disabled are as brave as a healthy 18-year-old? That's both patronizing and insulting to them.

    Are you the "thought police? What gives you the perceived right to declare what others must be willing to do in order to have a given opinion?
    I realize it seems threatening, but conservatives don't have a monopoly on policing thought. You'll get over it.

    No comment re DIY military justice. I have witnessed much worse.
