    I don't know who that is. I got directed here through a hit at my blog.

    I don't know if you are retarded, but your thought processes seem to originate and end at Obama's rectum.

    The war was authorized by Congress, both Republicans and Democrats. It was conducted because Saddam did not demonstrate compliance with UN1441. You don't have to like the war, but hose are the facts. It was quite legal.

    I was actually lukewarm to the necessity of the thing, but now that we are there, we can't afford to leave without a stable Iraqi government fully in place.

    GB, Australia, and about 30 other Countries also invaded Iraq. Are they all war criminals, too?

    yep
    so what, we have spent 95% of the money and 95% of the manpower and casualties. to act any other way is just a lie.

    Don't forget that Palau, Vanuatu and Tuvalu were some of our allies. None of these countries have military personnel.

    absolutely

    As blatantly illegal as possible under any interpretation of international law.

    as for the ant and grasshopper. Where do you get the idea that such an example has anything to do with American society or politics? The vast poverty in American cities is a necessary result of policy and not a character flaw.

    There is one major flaw in your logic, Mr. Reno. Poverty has been around forever. If policy could correct it, then it would have disappeared back under Lydon Johnson and his great society. No matter what the policy and governing body, you will always have the haves and the have nots. That isn't to say that you don't help people when they need it.

    Many societies with much fewer resources have less poverty and inequality then we do. Just cause poverty has been around forever doesn't mean we should strive for it. In fact we should be ashamed.

    There isn't any law to stop Mr. Obama, Mr. Biden, Mr. Kerry, Mr. Gore, etc, from taking out their wallets and emptying their bank accounts. But they haven't done that. In fact, some of their charitable givings have been shameful. Throwing money at a problem is not the solution.

    But of course promoting abstinence-only sex ed programs is.

    Where did that one come from? Sex ed = poverty?



    ps...since I know you are intending that as an insult to Sarah Palin, keep one thing in mind. If her daughter had listened to her, she wouldn't be 17 and pregnant now would she? But heck, I didn't listen at that age either. Just ask Willie Bee.

    Now, gentlemen, it is late and I must retire for the evening. Thank you for the lively banter. Nothing but love for ya!

    The solution is to make policy that engages people in a positive way instead of tossing them aside and then blaming them.

    I disagree and I was going to bed.

    Let's talk Katrina for a moment. The gulf coast of Mississippi took a direct hit from Katrina. New Orleans was on the side. How many stories did you hear about the people of Mississippi? People there got together, their churches took action and people took care of each other. Contrast that to people in New Orleans who sat there waiting for the government to save them. People are the solution. Government never is. Our government is no longer for the people. Not one of our founding fathers could be elected on the principles they stood for then. I personally like and admire those principles.

    Now...good night. Sweet dreams.
