    Yes, a great idea, don't you think? You like that car-wash idea? Or would you choose another line. Something with computers perhaps.

    Whatever pays a kid a decent wage to put money in his pocket, and keep him out of trouble. It might work in the U.S, but I don't know about Europe.

    They all know that.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    To the bolded. The fringe right wing nuts really do see this as a holy war. "Suppose Canada unleash the wrath of god" hmm?

    The Soviets had subs off the coast of Florida for decades. Just being near by does not make them a threat. And just because they are not close does not mean they are not a threat.

    Non-sequitur fail.
    Because the soviets really never wanted war with the US. Some here feel like ISIS is some sort of threat to the US homeland. Not in any serious manner.

    Do not need to speak for me. I never said they should stay in the bunk house. But for the love of god how long do we need to fight THEIR WAR?
    I say leave because its a lost cause. Not because we couldn't win or destroy them. But we wont. Our leadership has not the will to win.

    But somehow it will defeat ISIS.

    It should be an Onion piece-but its really hope and change.


    I disagree.

    It is nothing more than stupid dressed up as ideology, a pig with lipstick

    Wow!

    And you didn't think I got that from the second paragraph of the article!

    Here's the point.

    It does not work!

    Go to any American slum....see how well the seven years of Obama's job creation has changed and brought hope to the inner city.

    Gruber is a genius
