I am 58 and the son of a WWII veteran, as a child, I used to pore over my father's books, especially a 5 volume set called "A Pictorial History of WWII". My question as a youth was how a good and decent people like the Germans could be led so far astray by Hitler and the Nazis. After watching the Republican performance on C-span this morning, I no longer wonder. Nothing but lies and propaganda by Boehner, Cantor, etc. Lets face the truth of what these people are about before its too late!
Anybody thinking that this whole debt ceiling stand-off is reminiscent of that scene from “Blazing Saddles”? (No, not that one! Although if you watched C-SPAN long enough, I can see why you would think that.) No, it's the scene in which Bart, after every citizen in town has drawn guns on him, pulls out his own revolver, presses it to his own temple, and says “Drop it, or I swear I'll blow this [deleted]'s head ALL OVER THIS TOWN!"
Although now retired, I am an engineer by trade. In engineering, you learn that inside every big problem is just a bunch of little problems intimately connected together. So when tackling a project, solve all the little problems, and this solves the big problem inherently. After many years you begin to find your daily life being fit into your philosophy. As a result, my life has been guided by these engineering principles, so I tend to be a "simplifying" kind of guy.
How do find the documented paper trail to document the comments Thom makes about Dick Chenny’s and George Bush’s comments and actions about gas and oil rights in Iraq and Iran and the wars that were started from before they took office through their terms in office.
and now there are none.
These quotes are attributed to Benjamin Disraeli (late 1800’s) but might well serve us today. I've changed a few of them but I don't think that Ben would mind)
To tax the community for the advantage of a class is not protection, it is plunder.
Along this same line of obvious questioning, Is a hog's arse pork?
House Speaker Boehner has on national TV unmistakeably worn the Shamrock Colors to Battle in his latest polka dot party tie. These are the Colors of the Amarillo Bank Gang, which in its upper strata are Don Powell, Walker and Trotter, the mad Maddens, and Walt Disney. Their Doppleganger is the Yellow Industries of Taxis, Pages, and Books. Remember the publisher Doubleday! The Daily Double. Double your pleasure with DOUBLE MINT gum.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Cash from part of a $2.16 billion U.S. transportation contract in Afghanistan has ended up in the hands of Taliban insurgents, the Pentagon said on Monday.
The disclosure is another example of the persistent difficulty the U.S. military has in keeping its massive war funding from reaching the insurgents it is fighting in the unpopular, decade-old Afghan war.
