Nobody can tell me what the heck we even HOPE to accomplish in Afgahistan or Iraq anymore.

Holloman now uses civilan traffic on US-70 as tracking targets to train their drone operators (I personally refuse to call them pilots).

The D.H.S. is ordering up volumes of riot gear and body armor for our Army to use against us on election day if there should be civil unrest.

No offense to our soldiers personally (yet). But as a long-time supporter of our Military, I am compelled by thruth to myself and my family to admit this:

I no longer trust our Military or any governmental department who feeds it personal information about us - the families who've borne and raised those soldiers.

Blame GW Bush. He's the one who got us into this mess!

For 11 years now, I've swatted away the fact that 17/19 hijackers were from the house of saud - where the blame for 9/11 firmly rests. But I really smelled a rat when Alberto Gonzales defended that 'patriot act' with that characteristic dissmissive smirk. Call it old dog's intuition, but I knew THAT very day when I saw him do it in that hotel lobby; acquiescent yes-voting Americans had been HAD. Our admininistration opened Pandora's Box. We just didn't consider what else was in it, once Bush was retired.

Funny how some politicians get promoted only to be the scapegoats and do the dirty work their superiors want to get passed and not get their hands dirty. I knew back then when George squandered all that surplus monies left by Bill(each household getting $200) we were all going to pay for that dearly ( really miserably) later on. Better to have used that money more wisely George. GW left this country in such a mess, that the next administration would have a heck of a time to get us back on our feet. Good try Obama.

In pure conservative macroeconomic terms, you are correct. Bad idea and a shameful publicity stunt. I'm also ashamed to say I cashed in my $570 check (not $200 check) when I knew it was unearned. I'd give it back if I thought it would fix 8.3% unemployment.

But I've broke open a big can o' worms today (and Johnny Appleseed don't like worms.)

The time has come for us to break the Military discussion from purely a Democrat or Rebublican camp. And moreover, from a 'States with Forts' vs.'States without Forts' view.

Hurray for the Seals! Despite 3 wishy-washy presidents who couldn't call the right shot, we seized 2 seconds' worth of clear thinking from the sitting one and SHOT THAT MUSLIM'S BEARD ED.ASS!
Still, I'm alarmed at the change in the new training manuals on how to fight folks back home.
