at least you are finally being honest by admitting that people must buy insurance that they do not need to make your ridiculous program work....

You Democrats displayed your open mind with Joe Lieberman now, didn't you?
Your ideal of open mindedness and diverse opinions is to crucify anyone who disagrees with a single issue.
I don't understand your question. I have no problem with Joe Lieberman. The fact that he has decided to become a lobbyist for the conservative partisan American Enterprise Institute is his problem not mine.

Canada is different. She is at least located on the same continent as America. You seem to be asking ignornat questions just to see yourself in print.

<quoted text>ahhh..it's always so fun to lay all the blame on the politicians, but both of you forgot that it takes two parties to sign a mortgage.
people who bought homes at obviously hyper-inflated prices at or beyond the limits of their borrowing ability are also to blame. they get half the blame for trashing our economy...
Yes. You are definitely right. I should have included them in that little scenario. However, if Bush hadn't thrown out the "no money down" fish line, they would not have been so eager to bite. It was like a cannibalistic witch offering candy to Hansel & Gretel.

<quoted text>yikes! bad choice... Russia has a veto on the security council they would just block any action at all...
i like the UN and all, but those are the folks that watched hundreds of thousands get murdered in Rwanda cuz they couldn't be bothered to agree on the definition of genocide...
NATO can act without the consent of the UN, in fact, we are obliged by our own word to defend other NATO members...
Good point. On Saturday Russia did, indeed, veto a United Nations Security Council resolution (presented by the United States) that declared a planned Sunday referendum on secession in Crimea illegal, casting the sole vote against it. However there are arguments that Russia's action was “as an accomplice to unlawful military incursion” and against the U.N. Charter.

I would hate to see NATO get involved but, certainly, if there is a military action they should lead. I don't believe it will go that far. Russia wanted Crimea and Crimea wanted to be part of Russia. What we are seeing now is just a show of strength and disapproval to reel him in...not that he was going anywhere.

Actually, Putin brought stability, at least for the time bing, to yet ANOTHER area in a list of quite a few over the past few years, plagued by the chaos of anarchy and FAILING statehoods.

Putin has done the EU a favor, buffer zoning isn't easy, and requires some actual leadership.

What are you talking about? I never said they didn't. What I said was the Untied States does not need to take the lead. We can act as part of NATO without providing troops on the ground.

If it wasn't for acts of Constitutional breaches of big brother givverment, you wouldn't have anything to talk about.
