Gates says that a strike not only wouldn't solve anything but that it would incite further violence. Panetta holds that a strike should have gone on because of the creditability issue. It should be clear to everyone that this situation has no easy solution, maybe no solution at all, and that the best approach is extreme prudence.
Presidents have usurped the role of Congress either by chicanery (Johnson and Bush) or by exaggerating the potential danger of a situation for our country. There are some situations, very, very few, I might add, when an immediate response is needed and in this case, the president should have the authority to move on his own, But when this condition does not obtain, the proper recourse is to get congressional approval. As to the famous red line. I do not see any virtue in maintaining a stated position when conditions have changed or that position turns out to be untenable or doubtful. As always, if war can be avoided or delayed, it is worth any embarrassment that the action may bring about. If you have any doubt, go to a military cemetery, a veterans' hospital or the home of a widow with three children.

Thanks, Frank!
So what you are saying is that it means nothing that two of Obama's former Sec. of Defense criticized him in a coordinated attack?

You are dumber than a rock.

I like your post and most of the people deserve Obama Care and Death Panels. I am more than filled with joy most of the people with Sweet Hart Policies have to pay taxes on their insurance. The poor will get even less care now. This is what they wanted and they deserve it. The bad part is some people who did not want this are forced to take it.

The same fraud that occurred when Jeb stole the election for his brother George? You're right, explaining it would be too difficult and reminds me of the adage, "Farmers can't teach pigs to sing. It irritates the pig and frustrates the farmer."

What's the matter, Chauncey? You ain't able to "guide" your destiny or "judge" yourself as to your own character, you need the govt to direct you and tell you what kind of citizen you will be?
You're pathetic and weak, Chauncey.. No wonder you google your knowledge, you have no life experience to speak of...

Carry on, son.
You claim to be an intelligence analyst yet your lack of intelligence failed the men and women serving in Iraq. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to understand how war works in that region of the world. We have written history going back to the time of Mesopotamia showing exactly how those people react to invasions and occupations.

They never stand up to overwhelming force. They always stand down during the invasion and wait until the occupation begins. They have always used insurgency tactics on their occupiers. Improvised explosive devices, targeted assassinations, passive resistance and other time honored tactics designed to ensure the occupying force loses at least one soldier every day until the occupation ends and the occupiers leave.

You should have understood the history of the region before launching a shock and awe campaign that was doomed from the outset.

It just got a little easier to crowdfund U.S. startups
http://www.smartplanet.com/blog/bulletin/it-j...
Last year, crowdfunding raised billions of dollars for new business ideas and products on sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. It’s a solid model for raising money for young business ventures and, until today, the model was one of the only ways startups in the United States could publicly crowdfund their projects.

That all changed today when a federal law went into effect (as part of the 2012 JOBS Act) allowing emerging startup companies to publicly seek funding for their ideas without being required to publicly trade shares. Basically startups will be able to raise up to $1 million per year from “accredited investors”(who have a net worth greater than $1 million or annual income greater than $200,000), but instead of rewards — like Kickstarter offers backers — investors can potentially gain a return on their investment.

But while the new law may broaden funding sources, there are some concerns, New York Times points out:

None of that will change corporate law. Corporations will still be legally obligated to make a profit for the corporation and it's shareholders. A corporation that wastes corporate resources to help clean the environment will have it's officers held legally liable for violating their obligation to make money for the corporation and it's shareholders. A corporation that pays it's employees a living wage to be socially responsible is in violation of the law and the corporate directors and officers would be subjected to stiff fines and lengthy jail sentences for allowing it to happen. The corporate directors and corporate officers are not subject to criminal prosecution for the corporation violating environmental laws or labor laws. They are responsible for making a profit for the corporation. If the fines are cheaper than the cost of obeying the law, they have a legal obligation to violate the law and have the corporation to pay the fine so that the corporation makes the profit for the corporation and it's shareholders.
The only way to change corporate behavior is to change corporate law.
I didn't say those measures would change corporate law. I also didn't say we had to eliminate corporate profit. If boards of directors and key executives approve policies in violation of environmental and labor laws that result in fines and penalties that turn profits into loss, shareholders will vote them out and eliminate the root of the problem anyway as they have failed at their fiduciary responsibilities, or the corporation will eventually go into receivership and bankruptcy. But, maybe you feel there's a greater likelihood that using a "vote", we (who are NOT shareholders) can change corporate law? How so? Who will draft and sponsor that legislation? Seriously. Those most affected by greed and indifference are voiceless in terms of corporate law (read corporate governance)aside from government restrictions on how corporations operate.

It's a very tough nut to crack given the self-serving interests of wealthy congressional representatives and the corporations they serve who return the favor by serving the investor class. Do you have some specific ideas?

That's easy!- The intent is to give free or below-actual-cost stuff to Obama's supporters, nothing else. They're using the government as Dems always do. That is, liberal politicians tax those who work in order to use that money to buy the votes of the leeches of society. Pretty soon other "vital services" will appear. Why should only the "rich" have a vacation in Hawaii? Why not pay for everyone to go there? How about free tickets to Disneyworld? Or your own hot tub? Or your favorite hobby for free?

There's no end to "redistribution". Well, that is until we run out of money. That happens when most people realize that there are two choices: 1) You can sit at home watching TV and wait for your free stuff from Uncle. Or 2) You can work and watch what you earn taxed away to by free stuff for those sitting at home watching TV. It's not a hard choice!

I'll be signing up for every damn freebie there is. The sooner the collapse happens, the better. Then maybe the county will grow up and quit acting as if money grows on trees.

"I will be on Medicare in a little over another month although my business is NONEYA', but you sure do have a wrong number. I have incredible will. Surely, you are aware of that? Do you see me complaining or whining? Oh, h*ll no, you don't. Stay out of my personal business."
Excuse me...I did not make your business mine, NTR.. You told (whined) to me in e-mail that you were voting for obama in hopes of getting health care as it would be awhile before you be eligible for medicare.. I have never said or implied you did not have any will.. You do and you are also a b*tch as you displace your anger onto others.... As far as your complaining and whining goes, yes, I do see you doing a lot of that here on the threads... You are pissed and just have not gotten out of that stage to enjoy life...
It has nothing to do with me liking obamacare or not.. It is about claiming it is being put into place to help the poor is nothing but a bunch of lies and breaking down Our Constitution bit by bit... Bush has contributed to that and obama came in behind to pull up the rear and quite frankly was the best candidate to do that as he and the liberals could flash the race card.. And you know what? They did and they are succeeding at it and you are just to ignorant to see it.. Yeah, you will be on medicare, but that is just a subsidiary plan or don't you know that? Albeit, it will help but it is not 100 percent coverage, now is it?
He reiterated and reiterated and people simply did not hear the "up to" 2500 hundred dollars, NTR.. I can fetch the e-mail on what you bought at that time, NTR.. I am pretty certain over on the hispanic thread, it will have posts of you supporting his campaign speeches, NTR..
Nonetheless, that up to 2500 has dwindled down to 800 and something hasn't it, NTR... Unlike you, NTR, I do get pissed off when the poor and elderly are being screwed by our president and congress and unlike you, I hold both parties responsible...
"Republicans would be well advised to work toward making it more efficient and tweaking it rather pursuing than another bone headed attempt to overturn it."
You always hold other people to change, but are unwilling to do any changing yourself.. And you wonder why people see you as a "selfish b*tch"?
Try doing a little giving yourself instead of always being a taker at someone else's expense.. The liberal dems of today are no role models to anyone...
reading thru your post... NTR is the A-typical Big Govt supporter/poster.

whilst blabbing about helping OTHERS, they are really concerned with THEMSLVES, aren't they?

u say she said she supported Obamacare FOR HER SAKE... she once admitted in a response to me that she preferred FG 'welfare' programs because if the States/local govts did them HER property taxes would be increased! she implied that she no longer had earned income(retired?), so INCREASED Income Taxes would NOT affect her.

of course, she will post on here her denials of one or both of our claims, BUT WE KNOW DIFFERENTLY...and so do others that have been posting and READING on here for a long while.lol

Jaxx supports the like of Obama for same-sex marriage rights, HIS pet objective...

Rose needs continued FG disability support...

the others(freebie, WA, X, voracious, etc...), who knows what their personal 'needs' are?lol

I prefer to support the FOREST and let the individual trees fend for themselves... as Nature and the Constitution intended.:)

A lie spoken to "we the people" is a lie regardless of which president spoke it whether a big or small lie. Or a greater or a lesser one.
