Have to agree as well,
with both you and Galt
From progress when the US was helping (NOT "training mujihadeens") in the 60's with various infrastucture programs (like clean, running water systems , agricultural advances and electricity) to the late 70's when RUSSIA (NOT the US) invaded...
Two steps forward...enter communism, power quests and turmoil --ten steps back.

Just found the pictures worth a thousand words...rather interesting.

The rank partisan site 'Media Matters' qualified for the exemption.
Flagging someone BECAUSE they had "Tea Party" in their name is what got the IRS in trouble.
It is apparent you are not familiar with the IG report.
lol! and as Issa continues to shout 'the sky is falling, less and less people are listening and finding out he's more of an idiot than he appeared to be until now.

I never said it was. I didn't like the program under Bush either, nor do I like it under President Obama.
But unlike conservative republicans, my opinion is consistent.
I also am against President Obama decision to help the Syrian rebels...
see, again unlike conservative republicans, I don't follow the Democratic President lock step.
I've seen what happens to republican politicians who don't follow the party line lock step....
Senators Luger & Hagel, two men I've always looked up to, are prime examples.
too me there is almost nothing more scary than a party with no dissent, no room for differences of opinion. an organization where everyone thinks the same.
So now we know the depth and reach of the NSA program.

Hagel routinely voted against the wishes of the voters of the state that hired him.

Hagel was my senator and a complete ass.

Maybe we should pull our troops home for a few years and let Russia tidy Islam up.
And then let Israel tidy up Russia.
Now that's a different perspective on stuff...

The world can lead others to the democracy and constitutionality troughs, but it cannot force them to see the rationality of it, and aquite the methods of continued applications of.

Beyond basic need humane type foreign aid--especially in revolting countries, and even more especially those with great dislikes of western cultures-nothing else should be expected of us.

Then you are WRONG.
The IG report found the IRS targeting groups for having 'Tea Party' in their name was illegal.
Makes no difference what your opinion is as this is not decided by a raise of hands.
The IG report did not call any targeting illegal.
