Last time I checked "I" didn't spend a trillion dollars in Iraq. Like the majority of Americans feel-Dont care about Iraq, don't care about Syria.

Since you are so concerned..What problems do I have you ask?... Well today for instance before I left for work I forgot to take my ground beef out of the freezer to defrost for dinner. Should I defrost it in the microwave or just throw a frozen lasagna in the oven and schedule taco night until tomorrow? This will all be resolved once I get home and see the quantity of garlic bread I have on hand (another problem). What problems do you have?.....Like I said before my problems come before yours or a country thousands of miles away so save your breath because I don't care...

What makes you think I even pay taxes? I lived and worked in a lot of countries in the middle east and I will gladly pay high taxes and let Obama and the media feed me chit rather then living in a unstable i.e.d infested country and I bet theres a bunch of Syrians that fell the same so eat it!
