Under Obama the authorization for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan were rolled into the regular DOD budget because the Democrats no longer wanted to Politicize the matter. War supplemental 1 was 2008, 2 was for 2009 passed by the Democrat controlled congress.

Actually Georgia invaded South Ossetia, a Russian protectorate. The Russians responded, blasting Georgian forces out and went into Georgia proper a bit giving them a thrashing, then withdrew to South Ossetia. After the Georgians proved to be idiots, no Republicans have been pushing for Nato membership. Yes the Democrat controlled congress agreed to provide $1B in aid to help repair infrastructure etc. as requested by Bush. Clinton provided Serbia about the same amount for Serbia after we blasted them to pieces for invading Kosovo in 98 - and they dumped Milosivich. Serbia was a Russian ally. The Georgia thrashing was payback for what we did to Serbia 10 yrs earlier.

The proposal back in 2003 was an option to put 20% of fica SS tax into an account that functions like a 401k. The balance of the individual account remains in the Social Security retirement trust fund, and can't be taken out until retirement. The difference is US Treasuries at 0.25% per year these days, or average private market returns historically at 5.0%. Democrats picked the 1/4 of one percent as better, because it was funding government spending. If the money went into private markets there would be less to spend or more to borrow. Did you know the SS trust fund is all IOUs from the government? There is no "money" in the till.

Totally wrong and inaccurate. At the end of Fiscal 2008 (Sept 30) congress passed a continuing resolution based on flat FY2008 numbers lasting until March. Obama pass the 2009 budget with annual rate increases of 18% in spending authority. Those annual rates have been locked in with continuing resolutions ever since. Obama stimulus was $862B. Tarp was authorized under Bush for $B350, and the other $B350 authorization was requested by Obama. All the Bush amounts have been paid back. About $90B remain from Obama's. AIG was out of Tarp $90B, but on Bush. It has been paid back. DoD Authorizations happened under Obama too. Even your numbers make it 3783 vs 4808.

Well when he was in office they were too busy impeaching him for perjury. The stuff about granting China technology access came out after Bush took over so they can't impeach a guy when he his no longer in office. Impeachment is a removal from office process that precedes a criminal indictment. Under the law the President has immunity while in office. After they are out they can be prosecuted even for actions taken while in office.

To much Democrat hated of the elderly on this. I read an article, very sad, a while back about an elderly women who's cat was in a small tree next to the driveway meowing incessantly. She feebly took her step ladder out of the garage, placed it near the tree and climbed it, to coax the cat to come down. Unfortunately she lost her balance, feel to the driveway, hitting her head on the pavement and died later in the Hospital. This proves (according to Troll-li-dite logic) Democrats are secretly members of the Communist Party faction of Pol Pot intent on making America the Killing Fields, and hate the elderly. Democrats you suck!

What would fifty warring states accomplish? America is different than most Nations. We own a couple 100 million guns beyond what the Military has. I liked Red Dawn, but the concept is inconceivable. Even if the Military was disbanded an invading army would face armed groups numbering at about 100 million, with say 10 million of them pseudo snipers given our hunters with a reasonably good shot and a rifle scope.

The atheists that dominate this area of science, express faith that science some day will explain through Natural Selection processes how some acids could transform into a highly complex double helix with a very exacting protein reactive code that has to be just right governing its development, continual reproduction, and energy acquisition. Yet the fossil evidence is that after life began, it became prolific. But before life began there is no fossil evidence of failed formulations from which Natural Selection processes would select from. It seems to me the question of how life began is a matter of faith on all sides, with Natural Selection being as much of a stretch as any other.
