Good point, a lot of those opposing our involvement in Europe during WWII were conservative Republicans like Prescott Bush.
You're right about the Russians too. Before one American set foot on Europe in Italy the Soviets had defeated Hitler's 7th Army at Stalingrad and were heading west. We did push the Germans out of Italy and France but more importantly we prevented the Soviets from pushing even further west that they did and in the process gaining German missile technology that would have turned them into a more dangerous adversary.
Good point you idiot?

Baawwaahhhh!!!!

1 - Your part about Prescott Bush is based on your reading propaganda, moron. For the actual story (not what the liberals have flooded the internet with), read this:

http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/2434...

2 - The battle of Stalingrad did not end until Feb. 2, 1943 you idiot. The first US combat action started on April 10th, 1941.

3 - The first land assault by US forces against Germany was in Northern France was on August 19, 1942, long before the battle of Stalingrad, you idiot.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dieppe_Raid

4 - It wasn't the missile "technology" that we were worried about, it was the scientists you frikkin moron.

You are batting 1000, Mr. 42%- WRONG on every single count, you liberal moron.

Now go fund raise and work for your fellow imbecile Democrat Neil.

You are an idiot DUH-Pont; always have been and always will be!

It's no wonder your kid went to a safety school with a moron like you for a father.

We were involved long before Dec 7, 1941, you leftist imbeciles. Have you heard of the Flying Tigers? The Flying Tigers were a volunteer flying force from the USA, active prior to Pearl Harbor. The 1st American Volunteer Group of the Chinese Air Force in 1941–1942, nicknamed the Flying Tigers, was composed of pilots from the US Army Air Corps, US Navy, and Marine Corps, recruited under presidential authority and commanded by Claire Lee Chennault. The ground crew and headquarters staff were also American military and all returned to their services, most with promotions, after formal war was declared by the US. Pay attention to the, "RECRUITED UNDER PRESIDENTIAL AUTHORITY".

Then of course, there was the Lend-Lease program started before the US declared war on Japan or Germany. This came about because of Germany's attack on US shipping by U-Boats. "The Lend-Lease policy, formally titled An Act to Further Promote the Defense of the United States,(Pub.L. 77–11, H.R. 1776, 55 Stat. 3034, enacted March 11, 1941) was a program under which the United States supplied Great Britain, Free France, the Republic of China before our entry into WWII and later the USSR and other Allied nations with materiel between 1941 and August 1945. It was signed into law on March 11, 1941, a year and a half after the outbreak of World War II in Europe in September 1939 and nine months before the U.S. entered the war in December 1941".(Quoted from Wiki to keep it simple for you simpletons who know nothing but how to yammer bull shyt) Now pay close attention to, "... and later the USSR ...". Did they teach you imbeciles that Germany and Russia were allies before they were enemies? If it wasn't for the US kicking the crapola out of Rommel in the desert, taking Italy and completely shutting the German military and German Industry down, they would be speaking German from Siberia to Ireland. You socialists are some beauts when it comes to stupid. Shut up boys, you know nothing, you are unable to think, reason, or analyze anything you read or hear, and have the logic of dung beetle. You are the American joke gift on the world.

I'm sure they can and do all the time but the problem is none of them are willing to find out!!!
If you really want your hard work and intellect to be apparent to others and want everyone to know you got there on your own merit then they should be begging our government to give up the practice of AA in this country.
With a half black president, a black head of the DOJ (even a really bad one), and all those in the Senate and House, Mayors all over the country, Governors, and college instructors, etc. etc. there is absolutely NO REASON why we should still give those of color more consideration for anything just because of their color. They cannot say in this country it can't be done without AA, they just can't say it and it be accurate anyway.
If someone wants AA to be considered in their reach for success then they have not earned it and don't deserve it because it is clear that those of color can reach any goal they set, any success they work for can be theirs, and any climb up the ladder can be done on their own merit if they do their part and do the work involved in making it to the top.
It is long past time to end AA!!!

The Republican party is consumed with hatred, racism and fear. They are afraid of everyone and everything,they are consumed with bigotry and racism, Women, Homosexuals, Foreigners, anyone with a Arabic name, paranoia, schizophrenia I propose that we give them Texas and Oklahoma then build a wall around them so they cannot contaminate other normal people who aren't concerned about your religion, who you sleep with, or how many guns you own. With in months they would be fighting and killing each other just like the Sunnis and the Shia, because that's what fanatics do, they are victims of their own ignorance, and crazed beliefs. As evidence I offer Shinning and Waxman...Need I say more?
