You can't deal with the Taliban, because everything boils down to religious dogma written 2000 years ago!
You can't deal with todays Tea Party because everything boils down to religious dogma written 2000 years ago!
Thats why they both represent backwards thinking.
They both support Theorys that were tried and long ago debunked!
Like Communism their thinking is dead on arrival ! We tried it, it almost killed us!
We do not have to or want to try it again!
Chuck, wake up, if someone steps one foot forward and inside your roundhouse kick, then throws you on your butt, you wouldn't try it again, would you? Thats what Republicans nowadays are doing!
The Grand old Party cannot survive with this kind of failed thinking!
They have lost it !
