Don't ever call anyone an idiot again.
According to an MSNBC report:
According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, the Obama administration has launched 293 drone attacks in Pakistan alone, as compared to 52 strikes under the Bush administration. The bureau estimates that between 2,565 and 3,329 people have been killed, among whom 474 to 884 were civilians. However, distinguishing militants from civilians in the drone war is notoriously difficult. According to The New York Times' sources, the administration "in effect counts all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants...unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent."
"Living Under Drones," a book written by Sarah Knuckey, a professor in the NYU School of Law's Global Justice Clinic, she and her co-authors interviewed 69 "experiential victims" (people whose lives had been directly affected by drone strikes). The people of that region "have a constant fear that they'll be hit, even though they know they're civilians."
"There's a pervasive fear for people every second of the day," she said. "It has a significant mental health impact for people living there."

Try and imagine hearing drones hovering over your house any time of the day or night. You can't because you're a liberal.

Lets go to the root of the problem. Inequality of our labors productivity distributions.
Price of Inequality is far more expensive to one and all. Inequality properly addressed, that would benefit, yes even the lone hermit in the woods, to his majesty on the throne, if inequality were to be more justified in its distributions.
Now I will provide a video chart which may be more helpful in comprehending inequality as it is presently exist within the USA. We take care of that problem and the might of the USA would be undisputable through out the world and its Free Markets.
Yes even here in the USA, Austerity has taken its toll. Diminishing our strengths to compete effectively, on the Free Markets Of the World. http://neweconomy.net/content/wealth-inequali... video chart USA wealth Distributions..
Without inequality of outcomes, there is no incentive to work or produce and society fails.

Do you honestly believe that all salaries would not increase as the minimum wage increases, leaving those beginner employees exactly where they were before?
If you increase the minimum wage to $15, how much do you pay the guy now earning $15/hour, given that he currently earns roughly twice the minimum wage?
There would be some reverberations at the lower levels but it would dampen quickly.

You say beginning employees as if they all get promotions. A lot of big box stores depend on paying a sizable portion on their workers minimum wage. They would not survive if all their minim wage workers stayed on & got raises.

The entire problem with the minimum wage is that it has not kept up with inflation.

In my opinion, you get what you pay for. A bunch of people working while they are seeking better paying jobs & who don't have any skin in the well being of your company. The turnover has to be huge.

<quoted text>So..... which drones drop bombs son?
Operators, stationed at bases such as Creech Air Force Base, near Las Vegas, can hunt for targets and observe terrain using a number of sensors, including a thermal camera. One estimate has the on-board camera able to read a license plate from two miles (3 km) away.[15] An operator's command takes 1.2 seconds to reach the drone via a satellite link. The MQ-9 is fitted with six stores pylons. The inner stores pylons can carry a maximum of 1,500 pounds (680 kilograms) each and allow carriage of external fuel tanks. The mid-wing stores pylons can carry a maximum of 600 pounds (270 kilograms) each, while the outer stores pylons can carry a maximum of 200 pounds (90 kilograms) each. An MQ-9 with two 1,000 pound (450 kilogram) external fuel tanks and a thousand pounds of munitions has an endurance of 42 hours.[14] The Reaper has an endurance of 14 hours when fully loaded with munitions.[5] The MQ-9 carries a variety of weapons including the GBU-12 Paveway II laser-guided bomb, the AGM-114 Hellfire II air-to-ground missiles, the AIM-9 Sidewinder,[15] and recently, the GBU-38 JDAM (Joint Direct Attack Munition). Tests are underway to allow for the addition of the AIM-92 Stinger air-to-air missile.

Pointing out the fact that Obama was proved to be an ignorant buffoon on the world's stage due to his complete lack of knowledge of how the world works, and having been indoctrinated with fraudulent "facts" to support the ideologies indoctrinating him, is not rooting. It's just pointing out the fact that we have an embarrassingly ignorant and incapable government today.

Oh, and by the way, try to remember who posts what here. Maybe if you put the elephant down every now and then, it might help.

I think the facts are getting to you and you're finding your only mouse hole to escape it to LIE even more!
poor baby. so scared. so fragile.
Confused one-

You never challenged whether Dems were in power until now you are trying to change the goal posts. The decision not challenge if Dems were in power was a wise one as it is common knowledge and the onus would be on you to disprove. You have stupidly gave up this position so you have a bunch of research to do.

What you were demanding was Declarations of War. I assumed these wars-with the exception of Kosovo-were legal wars that had obtained Declaration of Wars or the modern equivalent of authorization of military use.

You are one who is challenging this. Show us were the Dems engaged in illegal wars.

Barack Obama’s new top economic deputy is a former management consultant who worked for Gov. Mitt Romney’s Bain & Company investment firm.

On the campaign, Obama repeatedly slammed Romney’s management-consulting business, and one of his TV-ads even suggested Romney was responsible for the death of a former employee’s spouse, who passed away after a battle with cancer.
