I served with a 50ish top sergeant with multiple tours in RVN who had been an officer in the Marine Corps during Korea.
I met a lot of older guys in RVN serving in various noncombat capacities who had re-upped for the travel and the action.
And of course RMK-BRJ was full of retired military guys who were in it for the $$$.

Too bad president Dumbya did listen to President George H.W. Bush who said that if we took out Saddam, Iraq would turn into another Vietnam and we could be there 10 years, the outcome would still be the same, a no win civil war between Iraqi Sunni, shia and Kurds. Removing saddam would destabilize the Middle East, no matter how long we stayed. Its an unwinnable situation.
If President Dumbo was so right in 2007, why did he sign the SOF agreement in 2008 that had all U.S. combat troops out by 2011??

Big efficient gubbymint to the rescue!

'A review of public records in 28 states uncovered widespread cheating by construction companies that listed workers as contractors instead of employees in order to beat competitors and cut costs. The federal government, while cracking down on the practice in private industry, let it happen in stimulus projects in the rush to pump money into the economy at a time of crisis.'

Yes, it did get ugly when we faced an unexpected resurgent force and al Qaeda who didn't give up and go home after Saddam was removed from power and his regime destroyed.
But war is ugly. Good thing Bush ordered the surge and left Obama with a stabilized Iraq, right?
If Italy took its purse and went home when things got tough just one year before it was over, it's more of an embarrassment to them. The threat was still there by terrorists who don't carry a purse.
But Italy was all in when they, too, believed Saddam was a threat at the beginning, weren't they? Just like Hillary Clinton and John Kerry. And 109 other Democrats.
The Bush administration lied to everyone in sight__it seems that everyone on earth except you and your overnight topix butt pals comprehends that.

Bush left Obama with two unnecessary and unfinished wars along with the shakiest economy since the great depression.

The Obama economic recovery...

'For families with business equity, the mean value increased substantially, going from
$844,800 in 2010 to $973,900 in 2013, but it remained below the 2007 level ...'

experienced an increase in the mean value of business equity. The mean value of business
equity for the upper-middle income group was approximately unchanged, while the bottom
income group experienced a substantial decline in the mean value...'

You apparently have a hard time discerning fact from opinion. But don't worry. I'm always here to help. See...what you just responded to was both fact and opinion. My opinion was that Edwards got off easy for much more egregious charges than McDonnell. What I said about Obama was fact backed up by a liberal constitutional law professor.
So which one confused you?

of course a 81 year old is never known to have a heart attack right?
the danger is the anesthesia, more than the procedure itself.....

better to perform such procedures in hospital outpatient surgical centers, rather than in doctor's offices.....particularly with older patients......

The Myth of the Climate Change '97%'

What is the origin of the false belief—constantly repeated—that almost all scientists agree about global warming?

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB1000142...

Of the various petitions on global warming circulated for signatures by scientists, the one by the Petition Project, a group of physicists and physical chemists based in La Jolla, Calif., has by far the most signatures—more than 31,000 (more than 9,000 with a Ph.D.). It was most recently published in 2009, and most signers were added or reaffirmed since 2007. The petition states that "THERE IS NO CONVINCING SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE that human release of ... carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate."

We could go on, but the larger point is plain. THERE IS NO BASIS for the claim that 97% of scientists believe that man-made climate change is a dangerous problem.

Here we go...

In 2006 2000 people were surveyed

Asked these questions:
'I would go along with my friends and cheat the restaurant...
'I would go along with my friends and pay the smaller (incorrect) tab...'

28 percent of Democratic voters would knowingly pay incorrect tab...
17 percent of Republican voters would knowingly pay incorrect tab...
