Aboslutely. We keep the money here, and get rid of contracted overcharges from KBR and Halliburton.

Yep, we can save billions a month by ending this war that should have never happened to begin with. Now, we can go after those lazy people like Dufus who claim fake disabilities because they are too lazy or unskilled to work.

Sundog, I am not sure what needs to happen. I foresee Iran invading which will only send us back.

Who cares? Seriously...since when did we become the worlds police force. Bush was warned about the consequences of de-stabilizing Iraq and naturally, he didn't listen. If Iran invades, it's our fault for de-stabilizing the country to begin with. That's why Bush number 1 didn't take out Saddam during the first Gulf War.

Either way, we need to take care of America. Let Israel deal with Iran. It's the least Israel can do considering all we have done for them.

Besides, it's clear we can't afford this crap anymore. We have to be realistic.

Would you rather see a higher price for gas or a higher toll in US casualties. Lets face it , the only reason for staying would be oil interest and as we've seen the price is going to go up at the oil companies whim anyway.

We are a later day Roman Empire that's on the very edge of collapse. If we don't learn from history we are doomed to death.

A Los Angeles substitute teacher charged with sexual misconduct with students is thought to be a fugitive in Mexico, police say.

George Hernandez, now 45, resigned from the Los Angeles Unified School District in 2007 but soon got another job teaching in the Inglewood Unified School District.

After police found a videotape of him allegedly molesting a second-grade girl, they filed charges against him, but he fled the area.

FULL COVERAGE: School sex abuse investigation

Huntington Park Det. Jose Macias said relatives told him Hernandez is living in the Mexican state of Jalisco.

Experts say they can't understand why the Los Angeles Unified School District allowed Hernandez to teach for so long despite the accusations.

He was investigated by police three times for alleged sexual misconduct involving students. After the third investigation in 2007, he resigned from the L.A. district but soon got a job with the Inglewood school district.
"This guy should not have been kept in the district," said Kathleen Carroll, an attorney who worked for the state Commission on Teacher Credentialing. "This is an outrage."

L.A. Unified is looking into the situation but has found no evidence that it ever reported Hernandez to the state credentialing commission, said David Holmquist, the district's general counsel.

The commission could have suspended or revoked Hernandez's credential, preventing other school districts from hiring him. For its part, the Inglewood school district violated its own procedures by not fully vetting Hernandez's background before hiring him.

A civil lawsuit brought by the mother of the Inglewood student alleges L.A. Unified is liable for not taking action against Hernandez before he could harm her daughter.

"This is no different than moving an aberrant priest from one area to another," said Sanford Jossen, a Manhattan Beach attorney representing the girl.

In the last month, several L.A. Unified employees have been accused of abuse, including Mark Berndt, a teacher at Miramonte Elementary School in the Florence-Firestone neighborhood of South Los Angeles, who is charged with 23 counts of lewd conduct against students.

And here those gas prices go again.Just in time to steal away any excess funds from our tax returns. We would'nt want to spend that money on anything that would create a job now would we.

I wasn't laying any blame. Just observing that since the earned income tax credit was put into place it seems that gas prices go up every year at tax time.Could it be by design.

That may be very coincidental. The prices tend to be highest between Memorial Day and Labor Day, when travel is at its peak.
