In defense of Obama’s drone war
By Charles Krauthammer
http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2013-02-14...
So?

Krauthammer blasts the Justice Dept claim of imminent treat as justification for the drone attacks.

Krauthammer is discussing the legal basis for drone strikes and in no way implies all drone strikes are verified strikes on al-Qaeda -which according to Krauthammer is covered under the Congress’s Authorization for Use of Military Force — against al-Qaeda and those who harbor and abet it.(Such resolutions are the contemporary equivalent of a declaration of war, as evidenced in the 1991 Persian Gulf War and the 2003 Iraq War.)

'facts can't change'

Hear what one publisher says about that...

"... One of my first publishing jobs was as the college paperback editor for New American Library, which is now part of Penguin. NAL had a long list of Signet Classics, which included classroom versions of public domain classics — Dickens, Thackeray, Austen, et al. These books were solidly profitable, but we noticed that the sales of our Signet Shakespeare series had begun to flatten out in the face of new competition. So we made the decision to revise the books: new introductions and bibliographies, new covers, and in some instances changes to the texts in light of modern scholarship."

I was attempting to point out to you that your logic sucks big time.

But, anything short of blunt statements you fail repeatedly to comprehend.

There is an increase of black on black crime. To counter claim there is white on white crime fails to address the issue.

To be BLUNT it is illogical!

It is like saying there is butter on toast. Yes, but is there are major change in this?

America’s inequality;
“Rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.”
Illumination of this can be viewed within our USA. Increasing wealth, disproportional to the impoverished who are unable to maintain an
equitable ratio in gains. Impoverished, at their best, stagnation of their share in laborers productivity. Increasingly eroding of their portions of share to their labors productivity. Increasing to the inequality and accelerating negatively to the impoverished.
Three decades of low wages, to the 90%, with a growth of 15%. Earnings increase to the 1% have been cruising at 150% increases as to the 0.1% are racing at 300% Greater acceleration of wealth accumulation has affected the wealth at the bottom.
Middle class bastion of secured wealth accumulation has been severely oppressed. Homes lost their values. Top 1% lost wealth but it was soon recovered. Middle class years later are just now experiencing a strangulated loss gain to their investments if not a total loss. Typical 1% held 225 times the wealth of the typical middle class household. Doubling the ratio experienced as they were in 1962 and 1983.
Prior to 2007 the 1% enjoyed accumulating 57% of the nations wealth. Producing an increase in capital income after 1979 some 7/8 while those in the 95% received less than 3% of the increment.
Consider for an example; Walton’s family of the Wal-Mart empire commands a wealth of 69.7 Billion. Compare this to the total wealth of the 30% of the entire population, of the impoverished within the USA.
“Good” middle class jobs have been eviscerated that required moderate skills, like autoworkers’ jobs, in ratio to the unskilled laborers. Where in at the top greater skill levels were required.
Polarization of the labor force. Collapse of good jobs has been in affect for the last 25 years. Wages have gone down, increasing disparity of inequality in favor of the 1%. Creating a downward spiral for the middle class laborer.
Presently as an example; Single earner of family of two children, in good health, manages to work 40 hours per week,{Presently Average working hours for Americans is at 34 hours} at a wage above minimum {$8.50/hr} Pays S.S. which reduces his earnings to $8.00. Yearly income is $16,640 for 2080 hr’s of labor.
Pays no income tax but his employer charges him $200 a month for health insurance, to cover entire family and employer picks up remaining $550 cost per month of the cost to health insurance. This results in a take home pay $14,240 a year. Luck on his side, finds an apartment for $700 month with all utilities included. Now this reduces yearly earnings to $5,840 to cover all family cost for the year. Add in a car with fuel, insurance and maintenance at $3,000 per year and what remains is $2840. Under $3.00 per individual per day. No entertainment and no buffer zone for accidents or lost of wages.
One Example of nets being cut and their affect; Many states cut child care. Average monthly child care for two children $1,433 per month to be subtracted from the $2,840 a month families income. Results in $1.30 per, person per day!

Too funny!!!
Democrats & Reagan did what was best for this country. Today's Republicans in Congress only do what they think will help Republicans & hurt Democrats.
'OMG OMG we can allow Obama to be successful as President " Even though it means this country can't be successful.
You seem to be ignorant of the Democrats' sabotage of the United States during Reagan's tenure in the Cold War. To educate yourself on those facts of history, search "john kerry nicaragua ortega". Make sure you get to the stories about the bullshit committee the Democrats created for him, and how about you give us a book report on what you learn about Kerry lying on the floor of the Senate, and about Kerry's outright lies to the American people.
The reason the Republicans gave the Democrats no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program in exchange for the Democrats supporting the war in Iraq was, the Republicans were well aware of the characteristic sabotage of the United States during a war and didn't want to have to deal with that like they had to in the 1980s.

Leosnana is such a character. She poo-poo's the elitist 1% but degrades anyone who might live in a mobile home which includes many in the 99%.

It's so hard for liberals to get unstuck between that rock and a hard place.
