They are allowed to sail between US ports.

Many vessels will stop at more than one port & load & unload cargo.

"An emergency funding bill should focus on the emergency needs of the victims, not the needs of politicians," said Indiana Sen. Dan Coats, the senior Republican on Senate Appropriations subcommittee on homeland security. "Loading up a massive $60.4 billion package with unrelated projects and earmarks for other states is not the way we should use taxpayer dollars."

I just like that kind of reasoning and wanted to repeat it.

<quoted text>I seriously wonder if McCain were in charge if the US would still be in Vietnam. 54,000 Dead for nothing and you Repubs want to stay in Afghanistan just like McCain said for another 100 years. Those that did not learn from history allowed 4000 Dead troops while looking for WMDs that were never there.
The U.S. should withdraw from Afghanistan immediately.

Why is Obama stretching out the disaster, at the cost of more American lives?

Why stay in Afghanistan one day longer now that Obama has already surrendered to the Tol-E-Bo?


When Bush invaded & took out the Afghan government, he committed the US to nation building.

According to you, we should have left when Bush declared Bin Laden to be irrelevant.

He certainly is the 'current'(that carries a whole new connotation now) president, but how do you figure he'll be the next one, decree?

That's what seems so funny to me. They keep talking about the "religious right" and forget all about those on the "religious left" - mainly black Americans and Hispanics.

Proves you are already too far gone and immune to the truth & don't even recognize it whatsoever.
After all, it takes effort to learn and find the truth yourself and not lap up the lying gruel & spin from msm and the dear leader you so adore.

We have other unanswered questions from last week:
Look up Article III of the U.S. Constitution. You will find, in part: The judicial power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court..... As a strict constitutionalist do you recognize the hypocrisy in your rant against the Supreme Court?
You also didn't answer the question, WHO would you shoot with the assault weapon you claim to need to protect yourself from the constitutionally elected government? Police? National Guardsmen? Military?
Let's say the federal government sent their agents to round up all the Jews for transportation to death camps. Would you use your legal firearm to resist?

What if they came after all political opponents? Or all white folks?

Obama has demonstrated his contempt for the Constitution and there is no confidence in his future actions.

Good thing about Dweeb is that he's such an outrageios liar that everyone sees right through his stream of bullshit.
I posted several Executive Orders from BushII that had nothing to do with the Executive Branch yesterday, but he ran away rather than respond.
That's been his style.
He ignores well-documented proof of his ignorance, and continues to come back with the same, disproven charges.
In that, he's much like Carol or Nobraina.
They've been running the same batch of lies for over 4 years on this thread.
they get beat down, they wait a week or two and start again, with the same stupidity they've been busted for.
They can't win elections, so they must lie!!
Dweeb is a virtual newcomer.
Dweeb, Carol, Eman, Mr Eed are all rather uninformed but actually think they know something. The power of conservative talk radio & Fox.

Obama has accelerated the use of drones. That's a fact.

Aaron David Miller, a long-term Middle East policy adviser to both Republican and Democratic administrations, delivered a damning verdict in a recent issue of Foreign Policy magazine. He wrote bluntly: "Barack Obama has become George W Bush on steroids."

The Obama Team Cheerleaders will tell you it's a secret.
