Ronald Reagan said we shouldn't negotiate with hostage takers. In fact, he did. Remember the Iran-Contra fiasco? He traded arms to Iran for the release of hostages. Iran got some F-5 parts and TOW missiles and then told their fellow Shia buddies in Lebanon to grab some more hostages. Reagan then arranged for more arm shipments to Iran. This was utter lunacy! And that cycle repeated again, and again and again. Reagan evidently thought the massive "Commie" base in Nicaragua was a bigger strategery threat than the Islamic Republic of Iran.

I asked the Republican if the socialist Republican Medicare Prescription plan was a redistribution of wealth from the young to the old. He said, "the whole thing was free, again paid for with the George W. Bush tax cut." I asked the Republican if the 'Faith based Initiatives' were Constitutional and a redistribution of wealth. He said, "God's work is always legal and righteous." I asked the Republican if giving AIG, an insurance company, $85 BILLION was a redistribution of wealth. He said "NO!" I asked the Republican if their Wall Street bailouts were a redistribution of wealth. NO!!!!

I asked a Republican if ethanol subsidies are a redistribution of wealth. "No" I asked a Republican if the Bush bank bailouts was socialism. He said, "No" I asked if having the government force school children to pray was Constitutional. "Yes" I asked the Republican if the Bush airline bailouts were socialism. He said, "No." I asked the Republican if the Republican's "No Child Left Behind" was constitutional. "....Yes" I asked if he believed that the Middle East could be social engineered. He said, "does it matter, it's free with the Bush tax cut."
Willard Mittens Romney thinks Russia is our number one enemy. When Pakistan shut down the supply routes to Afghanistan (for the US military!) his NEO-CON foreign policy advisers forgot to tell him that all other backup supply routes went through RUSSIA. If Willard had become president, then US military forces in Afghanistan would have been in the same situation the French army was in at Dien Bien Phu in 1953!

Ronald Reagan invited the Taliban into the White House; of course, they were known as the Mujahadeen back then.

Is it any wonder why so many douches who watch Fox News are EXCITED about going to war with Iran?
Let's talk about the 99%. 99% of the American citizenry have it easy during the war against the Islamo-Fascists here in the 21st century. Please, let me explain. Only 1% of the American people have gone overseas to engage the Islamo-Fascists on the battlefield. A say, "A job well done to our heroes!" But what of the other 99%? Let's face it, those not serving in the military overseas have experienced war against the Islamo-Fascists under three conditions. 1.) Entire interface consists of watching war on TV. 2.) Paid for the war with the precious Bush tax. (yes, supply-side theory provided the revenue.) 3.) Did a heck of a lot of shopping. (urged by George W. Bush to support the war effort)
