Good. That's where the cuts need to come from.

Lots of money to be made when investing in the military, Lawrence.

If you're a Republican heavily invested in GE or Lockheed of course you're going to stomp your little feet and pitch a fit if anyone threatens to reduce military spending. You might even consider calculating some little "conflict" somewhere in the world to keep that war machine going.

Now the ones I don't get are the piss-poor Republicans who couldn't invest in lunch at McDonald's, much less Wall Street. Still, they'll defend the DOD because they're too stupid to recognize the DOD is stealing them blind in order to keep those rich people rich.

It's sad but true. The "piss-poor" Republicans are being brainwashed by the GOP corporate mobsters. The Republicans have successfully co-opted the banner of patriotism and have convinced many of the poor that to be a Liberal or Democrat is unpatriotic, thus getting them to act againt their own self-interest.

Somehow we must bring the idea of patriotism back where it belongs. It is an idea that should reflect compassion, fairness, and social conscience. True patriotism means pride in how our country treats the least of us. The American flag belongs to those who believe it stands for liberty, not bigotry - liberty and justice for ALL.

Ron Paul has better proposals than Barack Obama and Ron Paul is wiser.

Ron Paul is E.T. 50 years later. And he's still on the wrong planet.

Fourth Geneva Convention

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, commonly referred to as the Fourth Geneva Convention and abbreviated as GCIV, is one of the four treaties of the Geneva Conventions. It was adopted in August 1949, and defines humanitarian protections for civilians in a war zone, and outlaws the practice of total war. There are currently 194 countries party to the 1949 Geneva Conventions, including this fourth treaty but also including the other three.[1]

In 1993, the United Nations Security Council adopted a report from the Secretary-General and a Commission of Experts which concluded that the Geneva Conventions had passed into the body of customary international law, thus making them binding on non-signatories to the Conventions whenever they engage in armed conflicts.[2]

SO WHY DOES THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT IGNORE THE GENEVA CONVENTION AND VIOLATE ITS LAWS ON A DAILY BASIS?

IS IT JUST ANOTHER SCRAP OF PAPER AS WAS STATED BY A FAMOUS--DICK CHENEY--POLITICIAN ABOUT THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION IN THE UNTIED STATES?

Does this mean you will vote for Obama, not as a "great president," (or precident) but as the lesser of two evils?
I hope so, because this would indicate that your mind is not so wound and bound in FOXLIES bullshit and that you can see the forest for the trees.

Speaking of the forest, the HONEYSUCKLE here is a month early. Joy!

And, for the Memorial Day week-end, let me remind all:

GOD BLESS AMERICA.
Thank you to all those who gave all for us.

Mitt Romney’s foreign-policy team is trashing him to the press. On Afghanistan, one adviser told David Sanger of The New York Times, “None of us could quite figure out what he was advocating.” Another acknowledged that when it comes to Iran, “I’m not sure that anyone knows if the candidate has a strong view of his own.” A third admitted that “Romney doesn’t want to really engage these issues until he is in office.”

On the economy, and also Foreign affairs and statecraft, Mr. Romney has a 'secret plan.'

I remember President Nixon's "secret plan" to end the war in Vietnam. It was to keep it going for four more years. And then hand it over to Spiro Agnew.
