Barack Obama, our next President

Is killing people by bombs and guns better than gassing them? Either way they're dead. So if we drop a bomb on them, will they surrender and say sorry we won't kill each other anymore? I doubt it. Let Assad wipe out AlQuaeda, and let the Russians help him.

The History of Labor Day
Labor Day: How it Came About; What it Means
Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
'dedicated to the social and economic achievements of the American workers'
That does not sounds like anything rightwing tea baggers would be interested in.
Galt you go first.

Hey troll... Are you trying to justify giving syrian rebels chemical weapons? Are you trying to say that the USA supported the taliban in the 80's that we should support al qaeda today?

WTF is your point?

If you knew any history you would understand that the support we gave the Taliban in the 80's was given to keep the USSR out of Afghanistan. And it worked. Also, at the time, other than being drug lords, the Taliban were absolutely no threat to us.

Liberals! Ugh

stupid old fart desperate for any diversion from Obama's criminal war on Syria...
Did you know that Assad's brother, General Maher Assad commands the Syrian 4th division which protects Damascus and likely launched the missiles carrying the chemical weapons.

I don't think we're going to take any action for the time being.

Only a cynic could absorb the sight of children wrapped in body bags outside Damascus following the apparent chemical weapons attack and not feel a primal urge to see those who unleashed such evil punished.

Only an innocent could contemplate a world in which a brutal dictator can deploy such weapons without consequence and feel secure.

Yet only someone who has willfully dismissed the tragic lessons of the last dozen years could countenance the Obama administration unleashing its own lethal weapons against Syria absent the authority of the United Nations Security Council and without the active participation of a multi-national coalition.(And, no, France and Australia do not constitute enough.)

Only those who have forgotten how the United States and its allies wound up in a catastrophic war in Iraq could now charge toward military confrontation with Syria, absent a clear and credible annunciation of the intelligence that supposedly ties Bashar Assad's government to the chemical weapons attack, and without an agreed upon plan for how to handle the potential repercussions.

Yes, the Syria conflict of today and the Iraqi misadventure undertaken a decade ago present two different circumstances, as many experts have already emphasized. Iraq was in no way related to the incident that -- at least publicly -- provoked the American-led war, the attacks of Sept. 11 delivered by Osama bin Laden and his al Qaeda partners-in-terrorism. In Syria, Assad has for years been meting out horrific brutality on those who oppose him, with visibly lethal consequences. The crime for which he now stands accused fits a pattern.

Where the case for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq was manufactured from the beginning, the likelihood that Assad's government really was responsible for the chemical weapons attack in a Damascus suburb appears far more plausible.

And where the government of George W. Bush was palpably intent on waging a broad and transformational military campaign against longtime enemies in the wake of Sept. 11, President Barack Obama could not be more reluctant to take on the battle before him. He made his name as the man who opposed the Iraq war from inception. He has finally charted a course out of the companion disaster in Afghanistan.

But in one crucial regard, the rush to strike Syria is indeed reminiscent of the ill-fated march into Iraq: It would undermine the very thing it is premised on defending -- international norms and a supposed code of decency.

There shouldn't be an IRS. Shouldn't matter if you're married or not. Consumption tax like the fair tax is the only way. Why do you have such a problem getting as much government out of people's lives as possible? Lemming.

Kerry: Syrian Chemical Attack Killed 1,429

Kerry also reassured Americans that a possible military intervention in Syria would not repeat the mistakes of the Iraqi invasion.

"More than mindful of the Iraq experience. We will not repeat that moment," he said at the State Department.

Time for civil disobedience. If you manage your withholding properly so that you have no tax refund, then the IRS has no means to collect the money.
I've almost always make sure I owe. Don't believe in zero interest loans.
