Netanyahu: "Hamas is ISIS; ISIS is Hamas"

I agree. Netanyahu is one of the few political leaders these days who I can honestly say speaks frankly and freely. He is not afraid to be straightforward in what his country needs, and doesn't dance around the truth, he flat out says it.
Wait, MSNBC criticizing Democrats? ... I should really get to planning that Ski Vacation in the now-frozen over Hell.
Why are we making a big deal out of this? This honestly comes across as the equivalent of the 'he's touching me' accusation four year olds make. There's plenty to complain about with Obama, but a small mistake in a salute is hardly something to be concerned about.

Arguing that one should be able to have abortion is not the same as arguing one should be able to smoke a cigarette. The true equivalent of abortion would be smoking a cigarette, causing someone else to get lung cancer. The crux of conservatism that one should be able to do as they will, so long as it doesn't directly harm someone else, without the govt mucking it up. This is why Republicans do not support leaner drug laws: because they clearly and plainly increase crime from druggies. At the same time, the reason why we don't support tougher environmental restrictions is because not only do they hurt jobs and require others to pay for it, a direct harm, it also tends to have nebulous benefits that won't keep a single person from getting cancer or heart disease.
I'm honestly against banking secrecy too. It's not that I want increased taxation. It's just that being able to hide money like that seems to tax evasion. Lower the tax rate, and reduce bank secrecy too. There must be freedom, but a free country must have rule of law.
I think he will find Hell an even more "oppressive situation".

I wouldn't mind a woman president. Give me a Hispanic, Jewish, Female Tea Party loyal Republican over a White, Protestant, Male, Establishment Republican any election. I only particularly care about the last part.

Because following in the footsteps of Neville Chamberlain worked so well when he tried it.
I say don't destroy the tunnels... bury landmines in them. The explosion will collapse the tunnel, and probably take a couple of terrorists with them.
Romney is a solid conservative! The MSM said so!
