They might go Russian; since the laws were changed that foreigners can now buy land in Finland, all the Russian criminals are buying Finland; just like they are buying Florida and practically own Cypress.
Funny how you rightwingers all seem to be pro Russia; well, you don't know what you're getting yourselves in for. It's sad.

Iran Plots Revenge, U.S. Says
The U.S. has intercepted an order from Iran to militants in Iraq to attack the U.S. Embassy and other American interests in Baghdad in the event of a strike on Syria, officials said, amid an expanding array of reprisal threats across the region.
U.S. officials also fear Hezbollah could attack the U.S. Embassy in Beirut and on Friday the State Department ordered nonessential U.S. diplomats to leave Lebanon because of security concerns.
The department has instructed nonessential staffers to leave Beirut and urged private U.S. citizens to depart Lebanon.
The step had been under consideration since last week when President Barack Obama said he was contemplating military action against the Syrian government for its alleged chemical weapons attack last month.
The U.S.is also pulling diplomats out of Adana, Turkey and is recommending that U.S. citizens "defer nonessential travel" to southeastern Turkey.

The Iranians are here already, O'bama has let them come across the borders from Canada and Mexico. The moslem terrorists have cells all over the place with in the United States. Of course the idiot democrats call the moderate moslems...this is a set up by the left.

They've got to play the Romney card, like they've had to play the Bush card, because they've got nothing else. The empty suit is looking more and more like Clint Eastwood's empty chair skit at the RNC every day.

Why the stocks have fallen.

China has moved 1000 marines to Syria

This is looking like a major war and I am wondering if any of you have re-evaluated.

Well, someone went and done it again. So here's the same post just to annoy my little judge-it.

He gave that man in a wheelchair his undivided attention and listened to his every word bending down to his eye level until he heard the entire story about his condition. He exchanged dialogue with him showing obvious empathy for his illness even though many other people were standing around waiting to shake his hand.

The issue of medical marijuana was not as understood or accepted in 2007 as it is today. Romney was put in a position of either having to spend a considerable amount of time debating this controversial issue with this one man or stating his stance on legalizing marijuana - medical or otherwise - while expressing his empathy and leaving it at that. It was not the time or place for anyone to ask a politician such a loaded question.

A lot of people at that time thought using marijuana for medicinal purposes was just an excuse to legalize it. Politicians "working a room" rarely, if ever, get into a political debate over a controversial issue with one person in the room.

Romney, I'm sure, considered it a "gotcha" question and wasn't going to tell the man something he couldn't promise or back up after being put in that compromising position.

If he was against legalizing marijuana, he couldn't very well say he personally would not have anyone arrested for breaking the law.

People's opinion about medical marijuana have changed with more information and education over the years. If asked the same question today, Romney might have had a completely different answer.

Romney responded no differently than any other politician when asked a "no win" question working a crowded room. For all we know, the man in the wheelchair could have been a plant.

In California, using marijuana for medicinal purposes had become a farce. Everyone had some kind of medical issue and prescriptions were being handed out like candy. Marijuana stores were on every street corner.

(It's more fun to re-post the longer ones.)

A resounding BOTH--as with the rest of the drawer. I keep being reminded of Gene Hackman's explanation of his father's racism in "Mississippi Burning." These Grumpy Old Pricks just can't stand it when they're obviously no better than a...POTUS.

The point is this: if Romney wanted to intervene in Syria; you'd all be waving the flag; if he wanted to bomb Iran, you'd be orgasmic.
You're too simple minded to understand the whole concept of the Middle East. You all whined and justified the Iraq invasion; basing it upon his gassing of his own people. What's different now?
You all became doves? or Russian sympathizers?
Uneffing believable.
I am not in support of any war; however, I don't think that we are privy to all of the intel either, nor should we be.
McCain and Graham have met with the rebels; they are pushing for this; they are Republican. So what's the deal?
I am of the mind that if there is to be war, then it should be paid for first and not stick the American people with the bill for years to come.
Israel and Saudi Arabia,Turkey, are pushing for this intervention.

Nobody has to 'scramble' Dilbert. 169,000 jobs doesn't even keep up with population growth yet the unemployment rate went down. Also the June and July numbers were revised downward. Only a moran would believe things are getting better.

Obama comes on TV and starts blathering about how great the economy is doing and the DOW dropped 50 points in under 5 minutes. Dropping so fast in fact that I've had to change the number a couple of times just typing this.

Not a big surprise. I have posted before that Israel was meeting with Russia.

As the US weakened its position in Mid East with bumbled Hilary and Obama Foreign diplomacy, countries there became nervous and turned to Russia for protection.

None of this changes the fact that there is targeting of US interests through out the Mid East.
