US troops to remain in Afghanistan until 2024!

1 post / 0 new

President Obama is returning from an unannounced trip to Afghanistan yesterday – where he marked the first year anniversary of Osama Bin Laden’s death. While in Afghanistan – the President signed a strategic partnership agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai – affirming plans to hand over full control of security to the Afghan government by 2014 – but allowing for thousands of US troops to remain in the country until as late as 2024.

In a speech Tuesday night to the American and Afghan people – the President promised to pull 23,000 U.S. troops out of Afghanistan by the end of this summer. The surprise visit by the President didn’t please Taliban insurgents who detonated a bomb killing 7 Afghans in Kabul less than two hours after the President left.

Time To Start Treating Guns Like Abortions

It's time we start regulating guns like we regulate abortions.

Because it just makes sense that we regulate these individual rights in the same way.

Because the Supreme Court, in the Heller case, concluded that there is an individual right to own firearms found in the Second Amendment - just like they ruled in Roe v. Wade that there is an individual right to have an abortion found in the Fourth Amendment.
