Flip-flopping OK on Afghanistan...yeah, its okay, to hold off on the help and backup and its sorely needed while in your plush office in the White House or doing a Dave Letterman show, but what about the troops that is in harms way getting shot at.
An action needs to be done soon, they are still in danger. Either you get them out and have Al Quida occupy that country again and wait for the other shoe to hit the floor.
President Obama while in his owm mind thought he made our country defense stronger with many of his cut backs and attacks on our intelligence agencies and also alter they way the military extract information has totally put a hamper in getting a victory (that is such a bad word to use).
People tend to forget why we are there. So prevent another 9-11. Just because the previous Administrations fault was to keep us safe at all cost, his new regime will do it by keep us safe by making nice to the enemies and delay help to our troops in harms way.
It concerns me, while the American's approval rating of the President goes down, his approval rating amongst the terrorist and dictator goes up.

Thomas Stewart, if you had watched Sicko, you'd realize that HMO's play God and decide who gets medical care and who doesn't in order to maximize their profits.

Personally, I can't afford the expensive insurance of HMOs since I'm employed only part time. So I rather take responsibility for my own health eating well, exercising and living a low stress life. If we all took better care of our health, insurance premiums would have been more affordable for all.
