d13 - "attach" = "attack?" Is that what you want a president to do - disregard congress & constitution & go his own unlimited, unrestrained way? According to the law of the land - and until we formally repeal the constitution, it IS the law - the congress identifies the nations enemy, declares war on said enemy, then turns to the president & says "Sic 'em, boy." The president can only wage a war that the congress has declared. And before you roll out the list of times it didn't work that way, let me say 1) I already know them and 2) each one was illegal.

Wow - I didn't actually expect the right answer to come up right away, if ever. Thank you, FF!

Liberal Feminism: You Are What You Bleat

To those present who've never heard Peggy Lee's "I'm A Woman," I suggest that you give it a listen on YouTube or some such thing. There's an authentic description of feminine empowerment. She is powerful - meaning talented, skillful, strong-willed and strong-minded - and a lot more feminine than any modern self-proclaimed "feminist." Also, she's not saying that she can live without a man in her life. She's doing something much more powerful - she's demanding that every man who crosses her path live up to her.

What if congress doesn't buy the president's reasoning and withholds its authorization?
G45 - l've never been enthralled by Parton as a performer, but she's an excellent songwriter, & that counts for something (in my book, anyway).
You're quite welcome. And on that note, it's my bedtime. Keep it classy, Sad4All!
Good night, psydoc, & God bless.
I wasn't going for a takedown, just a conversation. Just on the basis of civility, you're many notches above quite a lot of the company that shows up here sometimes.
I'm sure he did, & it's a mistake anyone could make. I mean you'd logically expect a state full of Reds to be . . . well . . . red. Can you recall where you heard it? To save my life, l can't any more.
I think I get it. I don't have a question here tonight - it was just a general observation.
A bit off-topic, but I recall reading somewhere (back around the 2004 election) that conservative states are red for the red-blooded, red-meat-eating Americans, & liberal states are blue for the prissy, swishy bluebloods. Has anyone else heard this?
