Some people join the military to pay for college, skank.
Jessica Lynch POW joined the US Army for that purpose as did many others in her transportation company. They never dreamed they'd be sent off to war. Same with ER's and NG's many of whom wound up serving multiple tours in Iraq as well as Afghanistan___some were in their late forties/early fifties when deployed.

Jessica, got her college degree, teaches school and is considered a hero in West Virginia___a hero on par with Herschel "Woody" Williams.

Good for her.

Look at the Dumbest Generation entering the job force here in America. They can't even count change. Seems to me the Greatest Generation, while a small fraction of money was spent on education, certainly they were more educated than the Dumbest Generation (aka Generation Zero) with millions thrown at them. Certainly you realize that the bric countries that are up and coming have a 100 times better work ethic than these Iphone educated punks of today in America. GDumbs don't have to think-they let the media tell what to think. At best, the Dumbest Generation might be remembered as useful idiots. At worst, it could be remembered as the generation that lost the great American heritage, forever.

And that explains how Al Qaeda attacked us in Benghazi and is fighting in Syria, plus they're with the Taliban and using Obama's "safe passage" to bomb every village in Afghanistan today when before Obama surrendered they were confined to caves in the hinterlands.
Do you ever listen to yourself?
Obama didn't surrender shit! Bush set the date for removal when he realized we were in a never ending war.

Well, Homer, if you spent, say, an hour doing a little research, you'd find that Rahm Emmanuel actually did send a dead fish to one of his opponents in Chicago. And you would find that Tony Rezko was sent to prison for real estate criminality of which Obama was a client. And you would find that Bill Ayres is an unrepentant domestic terrorists who would have killed innocent people had not three of his own got blown up instead. And you would find that Valerie Jarrett is a notorious slumlord in Chicago.
You would also find that Van Jones claimed to be an avowed communist and was forced to resign as an Obama advisor after it was exposed and Anita Dunn praised the philosophy of Mao Tse-Tung before having to resign too.
It's also very easy to find that Obama won unopposed twice in the Illinois Senate and also in the U.S. Senate because of scandals that emerged about his opponents of which Axelrod was allegedly the mastermind.
Don't you read anything besides the dailykos.com ?
Several of us have posted very credible sources surrounding these people over the years. You didn't even click on one of them to confirm or deny it?
You clicked the denial key instead, didn't you?
Help me help you, Homer. I'm trying as hard as I can.
Until one of them takes us to war based on lies, ya got nothing.

Please tell us what fucking budgets you're talking about.
We haven't even had a goddam budget since Obama took office, idiot. That's our biggest problem.
And, you haven't got a clue about inflation. How about you put some numbers in your post to back your bullshit up.
Price of milk in 2008 was ________.
Price of milk today is _________.
for example. Tell us the real story about inflation.
You know, some real information.
Hey moron, How about the deficit when Bush stole the election and took over, along with a record surplus and about zero wars when Bush took over, how about all the men and women sacrificed by his incompetence? Tell us how his love for big corporation and deregulation Wall Street helped ruin the economy, then tell us that none of that played a role in the mess Obama inherited, tell us just how much the Republican controlled Congress has fought tooth and nail against any and everything that would help the recovery. Why any rational person would want the likes of Bush-and murdering snarley Cheney back in power is beyond stupid. Why is it that every recession and depression has followed an eight year reign of Republican lack of leadership? Dumbazz.

Bah, Republicans love subsidies too except theirs are for the rich, Homer is okay with subsidies for the poor and the farmers.

Sometimes you give me no choice but to think you're just joking.
If everyone knew what Hitler was up to, do you honestly think he would have been exalted by the Germans as their "great leader"?
Why would his own SS men try and assassinate him when they finally figured it out?
They were loyal up until that point too.
So you must be joking.
Anyone reading the above can observe your grasp of German History.

List one book you have read
on World War II or Hitler?

Do not count the ones you colored in!:-)

Just 33 percent of Americans approve of the Supreme Court's decision to overturn a key part of the Voting Rights Act, a cornerstone of the civil rights movement aimed at preventing racial discrimination at the ballot box.
An ABC News/Washington Post poll finds that 51 percent disapprove of the decision, with 15 percent undecided. Republicans are about equally divided on the decision, with large margins of independents and Democrats disapproving of it.
http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/news/americans-gr...
Interestingly all of those 33%ers post on this thread.
Reporting poll results without providing the question asked is sloppy reporting.

Besides, with the Voting Rights Act, it is doubtful that 10% of the respondents to the poll even understand the issue.

Former President George W. Bush praises President Obama on counterterrorism and immigration reform
'I think the President got into the Oval Office and realized the dangers to the United States, and he's acted in a way that he thinks is necessary to protect the country,' Bush said of his successor during a taped interview that aired Sunday on ABC’s 'This Week.'
Touching wiping tears away BIRDS OF A FEATHER Bush say Obama is doing everything I did and continues the Same policies
If you have the ability to read Bush's statement carefully, you will see that Bush did not imply either approval or disapproval of Obama's actions.
