Hopefully, the military will slap some clarity into Obama's thinking.
Who in the hell wants to have a war against BOTH Russia and China at the same time?
If Syria goes away the market will level again. As upside down as it is, the market was terrified that the job numbers would be good and the FEDs would stop pouring OUR money into supporting it.

The central government is not dictating every aspect of your life. What new welfare programs were installed?
When will you freakin idiots quit being so GD ridiculous.
If you refuse to pledge allegiance to this country, then get out.
OMG you have to have health insurance. A concept that both parties have endorse at one time or other.
ObamaKKKare is a massive new welfare program.

Americans pledge allegiance to their country, not to the government manipulated by a devious politician.

Have to say that McCain's dual position of pushing for military action while warning of impeachment for boots on the ground is … confusing.
Why, it fits right in with the rest of all the BS.

Interesting concept though, vast majorities of Americans could and would probably rally around that excellent idea!

You seem to be avoiding the elephant in the room, which is what will happen when Obama attacks Syria in defiance of Congress and the American people?
So now rightwingers are getting angry with Obama over stuff he hasn't even done. Interesting.

Correction of Obama's history lesson today.

“[W]hen London was getting bombed, it was profoundly unpopular both in Congress and around the country to help the British,” Obama said.“It doesn’t mean it wasn’t the right thing to do. Just means people, you know, are struggling with jobs and bills to pay and they don’t want their sons or daughters put in harm’s way. These entanglements far away are dangerous and different.”

Free Beacon notes

A Gallup poll in 1940, when the German bombing campaign in Britain took place, showed 60 percent of Americans felt it was more important to help England win, even at risk of going to war, than to stay out.

Additionally, 68 percent of Americans believed the future safety of the United States depended on England winning the war, and 85 percent felt England would lose if Americans stopped sending war materials to help.

A companywide glitch in Cabela's cash register system that added a 2.3 percent “Medical Excise Tax” to customers' purchases; everything from boots to bullets; was an error and will be refunded, a company spokesman said.

The error was discovered last week after consumers in several states notified the company that the surcharge appeared on their sales receipt and had been applied to all of their purchases.

"It was a glitch in the system,” said Cabela's spokesman Joe Arterburn said.
<BR><BR>
The error was limited to transactions that occurred Jan. 1 and was caught that same day by the Sidney, Neb.-based hunting and outdoor outfitter.

Images of Cabela's sales receipts showing the surcharge have appeared on various websites prompting several rumors. One rumor alleged that retailers had begun passing their employees' insurance coverage costs onto consumers in the form of a medical excise tax. Other sites claimed that because the tax had been applied to shoes and shirts that clothing and footwear are now considered medical devices under the new law.

Both speculations are false.

I imagine most of the rightwing idiots are all on that emailing list.
95% of the emails I get are ads from companies I buy stuff from. The other 5% is from friends and companies wanting me to buy from them. Almost all get deleted without me even looking.
