Because American consumers won't pay the inflated prices caused by the inflated pay required to get US workers to do the jobs. Would you be willing to pay 3-4times more for vegetables grown in the US and picked by US workers, or the cheaper vegetables imported from South America? Farmers and businesses exist in a world market with competition from cheaper labor markets. US workers have priced themselves out of the jobs thanks to unions and minimum wage laws.
"What Will the House Challenge the President On?" Only what the Chamber of Commerce and Boehner's cronies tell him to. Boehner is a squid, no backbone and will suck up to anyone or anything that contributes to his campaign fund. Want the GOPe to do something, contribute a couple million to their campaign slush funds and they'll listen. Otherwise they couldn't care less.
But Patton and MacArthur were courageous leaders. Boehner and McCarthy are spineless wimps that are on the take from their big business Chamber of Commerce cronies. Boehner is only interested in "milking" the system for campaign donations and challenging Obama doesn't bring in the cash.
"That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."
The same can be said for blacks that I know who were raised in military families and have lived overseas.
Or the making of people like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the victim-hood purveyors.
Because they hadn't been taught from infancy that they were victims and that the white world owed them an education, a job, a living wage, a home, food, clothing, and comfort.

Science like all things is driven by money. When money flows from government, science goes in the direction that government wants it to go, and that's dependent on the direction that the politicians think will get them the most money from their donors. When big Pharma, big corn, or Chinese windmill manufacturers are funding the politicians, science will follow.
Wrong, wife takes out the perp on the left with her 9mm while I take the one on the right with a 12ga loaded with 00 buckshot. The phone can wait until they're bleeding out.
Had Adams lost, he would have had to pay out of his own pockets. The government wouldn't have rescued him. Since UNCW lost because of decisions by their administrators, the administrators should have to pay for it out of THEIR pockets, not dumping the bill on the taxpayers.
"All combat troops are scheduled to be withdrawn from the country by the end of this year." And what will we have accomplished? How many young Americans will have died in vain? The only thing that will have changed is that American weapons manufacturers have pocketed major profits and thousands of Americans and Afghans have been killed or maimed for life. Sooner or later we're going to have to learn that there's no such thing as a "limited" war; no such thing as a "police action"; no such thing as friendlies in a combat zone. Either we go in with massive force and destroy everything or we stay home.
