    Um, she's actually worse than many Republicans in that regard.

    also, i have a proposal. back in the middle ages, the king and noblemen led the troops into battle. perhaps we should return to that way of doing things. also, wartime tax rates should be in effect whenever we are at war.
    And rationing. Don't forget the rationing. I say that whenever we are at war, internet speeds need to be throttled to dial-up levels. Shared sacrifice and all that.

    No, I'd rather see a rational person in the White House, whether or not I agree with all of his/her policies.
    What a rational comment too!!!!
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Yeah it's only their business until they hit our shores then it's our business to go offshore to take care of our business.

    I don't think anyone is talking about launching shooting wars against Russia, or Iran. However with Iran, Obama wants to give Iran the green light to make nuks. Same with Russia taking over Ukraine. I mean Russia tells Obama to jump and how high. Iran is doing the same.

    I feel like I've heard ecofarm call her that once, but I can't quite remember.

    When they "hit our shores" it is our business. Until then, it is not. That we "go offshore" is why they "hit our shores" to begin with.
