You do realize that Paul Ryan was in Congress voting yes yes yes to big government, unfunded programs, record earmarks, and doubling the debt.
You're just bragging on what a good Republican Ryan is.

Though I've repeatedly said this over and over again...sounding like a broken record...casualities of war are inevitable when innocents are caught in the crossfire...any war...any color of innocents...any religion of innocents...but apparently you continually want to hear the same broken record.
What happened in Germany and Japan had nothing to do with innocents getting caught in crossfire.
Now would you please change YOUR broken record?
Yes, you wept for the Germans and told the brown people it was their own fault for getting in the way of our invasion.

I get it, you don't have to keep repeating it.

Truth is truth, not to be totally confused with thruthiness, IOW, Republicans do want you (not the Richy Riches) to die.

Grampy and Fretard are older than Carol. At least 5 years older. Haven't you been following?? They've all said how old they are.
Carol is not yet Medicare eligible.
Can you believe that at 61, Carol did not know we firebombed German and Japanese cities in WWII??
Or who her Congressman was??
And she offers advice based on her 'common sense'??
Ya can't make this stuff up!!!
I've given her ample opportunity to shed a tear for the thousands of innocents killed in our "war" on terror but her bigotry runs so deep it won't allow her to do it.

Doesn't concern you that his men might have been dead if he had been the good little progressive liberal and followed the political correctness protocol though, does it?

He shot a bullet over a terrorist's head in an effort to keep his men alive.

He should be in prison? Are you kidding me?

I have friends that are homeless, living in cars and cheap motels.

What has Obama done for the homeless. I didn't know peopl that were homeless until Obama became president. I mean, these are real people, not bums or somrthing.

Under Obamathings are worse then ever.

It's not the "Ryan Plan" anymore. It's the "Wyden-Ryan Plan" now...a bipartisan plan.

You're on the wrong page. Everyone else is now ahead of you.

<quoted text>
Which Obama signed. Really, this is desperation on your part. And Ryan didn't vote for ALL the dems big spending ideas -ACA, Cash for Clunkers, etc.
He's obviously referring to the years Ryan spent in Congress with Bush at the helm and the GOP in charge of both houses. Remember, the ones who set the stage for the return to massive deficits, entitlement expansion, new government agencies and so on ...

All the crap your Party "says" they're against.

Ringing any bells yet?

Why in the 90's was a balanced budget reached in 4 years as opposed to Ryan's 40 years?

yet you were oddly quiet while the baggers talked about Obama death panels.
Hmmmmmmm
All those Type 2 diabetics just love them some Ryan/R'Money eff the pre-existing conditions guys. Richie Rich says, "Don't get sick, but if you do, die quickly." "The Republicans latest claim is that Obama's medical plan took $700 billion from Medicare (from reduced payments to hospitals, discounts on prescription drugs and cuts to private insurers under Medicare Advantage). They conveniently leave out the FACT that that $700 billion is a mere pittance when compared to the Romney/Ryan cut. What a joke!

Interesting how willing you are to throw your children and grandchildren under the bus, Gramps.
What will you say when your son jacks you up and asks 'why did you allow them to take our Medicare away??'
And Grampy will weep with guilt.
He won't weep, he'll say "Tough luck, I got mine and YOU paid for it."

Carol has said the same to me, its the entitlement mentality they claim not to have.

Romney needs to add this one to the list of laws to repeal after he is elected in November.
Which should eliminate any doubt that Obama really is a Republican at heart.

Grayson did a very good job for your district Carol and with any luck he'll be back in congress next year although representing a newly gerrymandered district. The TeaParty mutt who replaced Grayson, Webster, has done zero for your district.

If I'm understanding you correctly, then Obama has never been your President either?

Your ongoing diatribe re: the atrocities of WWII, demonstrates your lack of curiosity and poor memory. There have been dozens of documentaries and too many books on those subjects to mention.

Tenzing (demos) and I have both discussed our visits to the Hiroshima war museums right here on this thread __are you one of those persons who doesn't care about what others have to say but only what you have to say?

Like I told Lily, it's the part of the war no one wants to talk about.
We came very close to being accused of committing war crimes.
"Was this last mass killing necessary? We rarely hear about it at all, perhaps because it throws into question the entire morality of U.S. strategic bombing in the Pacific War."
http://blog.independent.org/2012/08/06/terror...
The documentary series, War, left nothing out - quite graphically I might add - even the part no one wants to talk about.
Not too surprising a lot of people didn't know about it.
There you go again, assuming Fox "News" is everybody.

He should be in prison. The CIVILIAN was not a terrorist. The fact that you and West don't respect the difference says maybe you both should be charged with hate crimes...oh, sob, sob, for those poor innocent white Dresden residents...
