Well, maybe not!

"We have a deficit problem. It has to be addressed," Sanders said, "but it cannot be addressed on the backs of the sick, the elderly, the poor, young people, the most vulnerable in this country. The wealthiest people and the largest corporations in this country have got to contribute. We've got to talk about shared sacrifice.

Clueless once more. Probably, one of the reasons the pope resigned is over alleged cover-up of pedophilia while he was head of the Congregation of the Faith. Add to that the Vatican bank's money-laundering and fraud problems. You don't get informed too much , do you?

Well, Carnival pays even less taxes and starvation wages with its register of all its ships in Caymans, Bahamas and Bermuda and foreign-employed nationals as crew who get a pittance and rely on passenger tips.

All of the rest paid no taxes, got refunds, yes, and thats ok with birthers and minority repub house haters. Why? Well, these corporations create JOBS. LMAO (LRS tm reg'd). Just so the birther and tea party haters don't point an accusing finger at Canada in retaliation, I'll do it myself. We pretty much have the same corporate welfare bums here too.

Told you a few days ago, and Nebka is right. Sabre-rattling had nothing to do with it, the USSR just disintegrated from economic incompetence. At that time specifically, we could've had a nuclear war had anyone but Gorbachev been 1st secretary. They were desperate.
Your opinion and I have mine. Yes, the USSR disintegrated because of economics but they did so by trying to keep up with Reagan's initiatives!!!
Just like Kennedy caused the Cuban Missile Crisis. Sure, it was Ike who started to put intermediate ballistic missiles in Europe and Turkey, but it was Kennedy who ignored the Soviets objections. So they countered our missiles, which Kennedy refused to remove, by in stalling their own intermediate cruise missiles in Cuba.
And Kennedy LOST the Cuban Missile Crises because not only did he agree to remove our intermediate ballistic missiles from Europe and Turkey, but he also cancelled our first air launched cruise missile.
GAM-87 Skybolt
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Douglas GAM-87 Skybolt (AGM-48 under the 1962 Tri-service system) was an air-launched ballistic missile (ALBM), equipped with a nuclear warhead, developed by the United States during the late 1950s. The UK joined the program in 1960, intending to use it on their V bomber force. A series of test failures and the development of submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs) eventually led to its cancellation in December 1962.[1] The UK had decided to base its entire 1960s deterrent force on Skybolt, and its cancellation led to a major confrontation between the UK and US, known today as the "Skybolt Crisis".
I know, I know, you will claim the Skybolt was cancelled because of technical reasons and you think the cancellation date of just one month after the Cuban Missile Crises is just a coincidence. But I have read up on it at the Army's Pea River War College Library which is not open to people who do not have an active secrete security clearance.

When I read about the Skybolt crisis it was still classified secrete but now that it is no longer classified, I can talk about it. Yep, was was Kennedy BLINKED!
Kennedy officially cancelled Skybolt less than a month after the end of the Cuban Missile Crises and without consulting with the U.K. which peeved the Brits. Liberals have a habit of pissing off our allies.

Report to JFK: The Skybolt Crisis in Perspective
Richard E. Neustadt
Reviewed by Philip Zelikow
March/April 2000

In 1962, the United States and Britain unexpectedly clashed over the cancellation of an American missile program, Skybolt. Puzzled about how such close allies could fall so afoul of each other, President Kennedy asked a professor he admired, Neustadt, to study the matter -- opening doors and files to him in Washington and even helping him in London. After reading Neustadt's vivid report in November 1963, Kennedy gave it to his wife, remarking, "If you want to know what my life is like, read this." Then they left for Dallas, and Neustadt's report was locked away for 30 years. Now declassified, it offers a marvelous introduction to the personalities and the arcane issues involved, supplemented by Neustadt's new research in the now-opened British archives. His report is both a microstudy of the details that animate real issues in government and a masterpiece of writing. It looks deeply not only into international policymaking but into the heart of relations among allies. It also offers a very timely lesson: the United States ought to favor its friends with the kind of attention it usually accords only to its enemies.

1. Teh U.S. missiles in Turkey were obsolete. Kruschev and JFK bothj knew tht but its removal was a sop to the USSR, a face-saving move;

2. Skybold. Make me laugh. Airplane-launched. Rogue, why don't you object because the U.K. failed to modernize the Sopwith Camel and the U.S.the Bell Airacobra?

3.Don't tell me what you've read up. What you've read is unclassifiedd compared to what I had access to.

JFK won the confrontation with Kruschev, hands down.

Same thing here in Canada. The conservatives are in power, have a majority in both houses, yet are truly and really screwing everything up, undoing and f***ing up everything their predecessor liberals have done. Unbelievable. I guess conservatives have this one thing in common worldwide : ignorance, "I don't care about the middle class, love the rich, though" and incompetence.

And member of the Armed Forces who has over five consecutive years on active duty can not be summarily discharged from the service and has the right to have a show cause board.
Now, the question is 1) will he demand a show cause board and 2) if he does, will they allow him so stay on active duty?
I had a friend who had seventeen years in service and got a .08 DUI conviction and they tried to put him out of the service. He won his board hearing and stayed to retire. But a sexual assault is not a .08 DUI violation.

Reinstated Pilot Unlikely to Be Promoted Soon
Mar 08, 2013
Stars and Stripes | by Nancy Montgomery

The fighter pilot freed from jail and reinstated into the Air Force last month after a lieutenant general set aside his sexual-assault conviction was taken off a promotion list, the Air Force said, making it unlikely he will move up in rank any time soon.
Lt. Col James Wilkerson, whose case has sparked calls from congressional lawmakers and sexual assault victims’ advocates for changes to the military justice system, had been selected for promotion to colonel before he was accused of groping a sleeping houseguest. He was convicted in November at a jury trial of aggravated sexual assault.
In January, the Secretary of the Air Force removed the F-16 pilot’s name from the promotion list. Wilkerson’s removal was “based on evidence considered in his court-martial proceedings,” according to a statement from the Air Force Personnel Center.
Despite Lt. Gen. Craig Franklin’s action to set aside the jury verdict on Feb. 26 and reinstate Wilkerson to full-duty status, the Air Force secretary’s decision would stand unless Wilkerson persuaded an Air Force board that his name should not have been removed, the statement said.
“If Lt Col Wilkerson believes an error caused his removal or that his removal constitutes an injustice, he may submit an application to the Air Force Board for Correction of Military Records (AFBCMR),”the statement said.

You're a fool. And outright fool. Quote me someone , anyone, gay OR straight, or bi for that matter, who ever said that the putting to death and persecution of gays and lesbians in Muslim countries that they were not upset. I'm taking you up on this one, as per so many others, Rogue, as you just issued another out-and-out statement with nothing to lean on. Go ahead. And, why do you make responsible the people who are pro-democracy and who defend gay rights for the idiocies that Iran emits (like you) on there being no gays in Iran?

Pedophilia worldwide was rampant in the 80s and 90s while Ratzinger (the jsut-resigned pope, fyi) was prefect of the Congregation of the Faith, the Vatican agency tasked to deal with this problem. It is fairly well known that he ignored what was going on, even had offending clergy transferred again and again onto unsespecting parishioners. Did you also know that at the Vactican, and for a month now, no credit card or ATM transactions are allowed on account of Vatican bank money laundering? Why are the assembled cardinals,at this very moment, not able to even come up with a date for conclave? You're ignoring all this? Why?

Loose is wrong. And his threat to attack Moslems is laughable. Let him, as the Moslems, probably owning the worst religion since humans walked the earth, has plenty to be attacked on.
