Finally, a message is being sent to these criminals that we are tired of the invasion and the idiocy coming from the White House.
Texans do have a history of going their own way using their own methods and being proud of that sort of leadership.

The operative word here is "leadership".

Magic Negro shows none, Texans show plenty.

You must mean to say "Genocide of 'who' exactly?"

"Genocide of what..." is something that a redneck hick with a 2nd grade education might say.

Is there any way we could convince ISIS to fly over here and secure and patrol our southern border?

Obama could give them arms they're already familiar with -- you know, equip them with the ordnance he left on the ground when he pulled out of Iraq...maybe give them the OK to grab and inhabit the Chihuahuan Desert and charge them, oh, I don't know, a fee similar to a time share?

Cool, eh butty?

Interesting concept.

Reich wing idiots claim Clinton let terrorist into the country which caused the 911 disaster, and now you propose actively soliciting and paying them with weapons you will provide for free.

No wonder people think you're nuts.. You really are......

A prisoner of war applies in a conventional war. This enemy is evil and their leader is their god who instructs them to kill as many civilians as possible as efficiently as possible. Civilians who don't wear a uniform or carry a weapon on the battlefield. Their vulnerability is what changes the strategy in this war.

So now the U.S. has released millions of dollars to Iran because they were kind enough to continue talking to us another four months while they have another four months to finish their nuclear weapons program.
We'd all better be prepared for the worst. Israel will not wait until Iran has played the U.S. like a fiddle up until the very last note.
You're full of crap as usual Carol. You've got a lot of gall accusing this administration of being played like a fiddle when that's exactly what they did to your hero George W Bush to convince him to invade Iraq with fabricated reports of WMD which as it turns out didn't exist.
What the Obama administration is doing is the "carrot and stick" approach to diplomacy which is far more effective than saber rattling which only would serve to further entrench the Iranians.

WASHINGTON—
The U.S. Defense Department says a military assessment team has determined a humanitarian crisis involving thousands of Yazidis fleeing Sunni extremists in northern Iraq is less grave than previously feared. U.S. officials credit airdrops and airstrikes for making a costly and risky evacuation mission less likely.

Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said a team of less than 20 U.S. military personnel, accompanied by officials of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), conducted an assessment of the situation on Mount Sinjar early Wednesday. Kirby said the team did not engage in combat operations and all personnel returned safety to Erbil.

Returning from Asia Wednesday, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the team determined international airdrops, U.S. airstrikes on Islamic State (IS/ISIL) targets and efforts by the Kurdish peshmerga fighters allowed thousands of Yazidis trapped on the mountain to evacuate.

"Not only were there fewer people up there, but they were in relatively good condition, and the people up there credited our efforts with the water and the food and also buying space and time with those airstrikes against ISIL. So, that’s good news," said Hagel.

Hagel said that as a result, a rescue mission that had been planned appears less likely.

Pentagon spokesman Kirby said airdrops of food and water would continue. U.S. Central Command said a seventh such airdrop was conducted late Wednesday.

White House deputy National Security adviser Ben Rhodes Wednesday said the U.S. had also conducted seven airstrikes against IS targets, but added a lasting solution to get the refugees to a safe space may still be needed.

I get it, its not a "war" unless its declared a war. But we were fighting in the Iraq War.

Carol pulls yet more pathetic excuses to ignore that George W Bush's actions in Iraq has put the US in the same category as those countries that condone torture.

And really, nothing like pretend Christian Carol, condemning all of Islam because of writings calling for killing the infidels while ignoring in her very own Bible where God called for the slaughter of women & children who worshiped the Golden Calf.

So, it's OK now that the government has caused it?
Most insurance policies basically already met the new guidelines with some minor changes. Minimum coverages have beed defined & redefined by state governments all the time.
So, I'll ask again, where the f*ck were you then?
You & your Tea Party dumbasses are having a fit now because its the President & Democrats who made the changes (the same changes Republicans have suggested in the past).
Your problem has nothing to do with the ACA supposedly causing policy cancellations. If that were the case, you would have had a fit every time regulations were changed.
You are having a fit now only because Obama wanted it.
Every argument you morons make against the ACA is based solely on politics not substance.
If you had any guts, you would admit that you favor more people being insured, elimination of pre-erxisting conditions, better access to preventative care, helping young people by allowing them to be included in their parents coverage until 26,etc etc
In fact, you can't point to a single real complaint other than gripe about this supposed government control.
If you don't like how Democrats addressed the healthcare situation of pre-existing conditions, the uninsured, premiums rising nearly double digits yearly, etc, don't blame Democrats. Blame your own party who did NOTHING for the nearly 12 consecutive years off Congressional control - 8 with a Republican President. The real fact is that you & your pathetic party did NOTHING about healthcare. NOTHING.
