..makes 'no' sense - say again?
funny
brilliant
agree
..didn't register with 'me'

"Goddam" is thuggish, uncouth, and has no regard for who their intended to offend or others on the forum.. People who have a large vocabulary and refinements do not have to resort to using monosyllabic, curse words to express themselves. As I have stated, using curse words and talking dirty are signs of having no inherent decency, a limited vocabulary, poor upbringing, and not being intelligent.

Those of us who occasionally waste a minute here to read your serial threads created, sometimes 10 of them a day, always critical, often disrespectful, even racist, already know what you "think" about the attached. You consistently think whatever Alex, Glenn, Rush, or Sean tell you to think in beforeitwasnews, theBlaze, prisonplanet, wnd...

You seldom state an original thought here and when you try to, it's frequently something you plagarized from the tea party tattler or another biased, fringy, polar, righty hate rag. How'd I do? Nailed it right? You're welcome and I forgive you for your angry, bigoted, clueless, disrespectful, traitorous, treasonist posts here, H H.:)

You have a good one! LOL

Is Chilli biased or is it 'me'?
I suppose 'we' each have our agendas and it's up to you to decide which you -prefer-?
IMPO 'i' think Chilli is overstating the facts, concerning 'me' of course, but it's not 'my' option it's "your's".

To further the conversation I submit the following:

An 'old school view' I'd go along with but very
conservative.

Listen 'real' close and read-between-the-lines:
http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/...

Here's my thought:
"I do think Putin's playing chess and we're playing tic-tac-toe,". "Think about where he is and what he wanted out of Syria. He got everything he wanted... He wanted Assad there. He gets to keep his warm water port. He gets to keep his military contracts. And, he gives breathing space to both Hezbollah, which is fighting on behalf of Assad, and he creates a problem for us with al Qaeda operating in the east. This was a big win for him."

**What's yours?**

Yes, I'm biased. Strongly biased against the broken, ineffective, inefficient political machine in my country that's simply unable to pass meaningful legislation. Biased against DRMs and CONs and their silly bickering, childish gotcha ways and infighting that causes them to waste my hard-earned taxes in their juvenile game of political "Spy vs. Spy!"

I'm unhappy with our POTUS on a number of his actions, inactions and issues. That said, with the CONs "Nobama" games in Congress, almost certainly no DEM would've done better. DEMS control the Senate, so if they'd been even nearly as obstructionist, traitorous and treasonist as the CON Congress, Romney might've well done worse than Obama.

You, on the other hand, have nothing good to say about my POTUS and you confirm your pro-CON, anti-DEM bias in nearly every post and on every thread you make here. You're the CONs' boy! You blissfully naive folks who seem to believe one party would do any better than the other, in our circular firing squad political scene make me laugh.

So I dislike the attempted distraction from what should be important, finger-pointing, game-playing, infighting, labeling and name-calling by CONs and DEMs. I'm biased? You're not? Struggle much with self-assessment? Ponder assertions like that, before embarassing yourself more? You can't see your polar pro-CON bias? That's kinda sad, dude!
Great post

The United States will do what they have to do. That's all I will say about that.
I am sure they know what they are doing.

Chilli you make a very strong case expressing your discontentment with politics but I fail to see any constructive suggestions to correct the current
dilemma this country suffers.
We're all biased in ways I try express my beliefs
by offering facts, suggestions, and resolutions to
rectify what's wrong!

I fail to see it the same way. Obama has shown no real leadership in Syria from the start, arm the rebels, not arm the rebels, chemical weapons are a red-line, but evidently not his red-line, it was the worlds red-line. We're going to bomb Syria, with or without congressional approval, then let's ask Congress what they think, oh wait, nevermind Russia has a plan.
To conduct a military operation without a clear cut objective is foolish, Barry does not even have a clear cut position to even build a goal from.
Our State Department is as weak currently as our image in the worlds eyes. Kerry has repeatedly had to change course in an effort to keep in step with the shifting sands that has been White House policy. Our well trained State Department can't even keep their embassies safe.
This same State Department is not only allowing Russia to keep selling weapons to Syria but now seems to have allowed Russia to sell S-300 anti-aircraft missiles to Iran.
Currently, our middle eastern policy is being issued from the Kremlin and our marching orders handed down through the Op/Ed section of the NY Times.
Right now, I can't see where the US knows what they are doing, they won't even know where they stand until Putin posts to the Times next.

This is a 'sad' parallel but considering I brought this up back a few posts ago, I put him in the same category as Jenny.

Through negotiations, some Republicans say the administration has given "the diplomatic advantage" to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
(( NO KIDDING!))? it took a republican to figure that out?

The top Senate Republican, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky (( I claim no association)), told reporters on Tuesday that he's "skeptical of a game plan that will lead to an outcome and it looks more like, frankly, an effort to guarantee Assad stays in power."

Facing a reelection challenge ((NO CHANCE!)), McConnell added that "Russians now have more influence in the Middle East as a result of their intervention and the administration buying their solution than they've had since the 1970s."
(( You don't say so?))
(( His master application of common sense *behooves me!))
