Urban Problem Bigger Than Detroit

Katrina did the job in New Orleans but unfortunately there is no Katrina on the horizon where Detroit and the other cities in dire financial and political straitsare concerned. Race baiters like Jackcon and Sharpton will exploit every opportunity to profit from the misery they have helped to create. Like their friends and supporters on the left they will assume no responsibility for their failures and will, in fact, continue to support the same corrupt leadership that has brought about the situation. Good luck with making the chnges necessary. Not much chance of that happening.
U.S. foreign policy should not hinge on whether some Pakistani in some backwater podunk approves or disapproves of us. Attitudes of a third world country man-on- street with regard to the U.S. has been given respectability and deep meaning by the Madison Avenue mentality that sees deep meaning in the outcome of every screwball poll hatched in the foggy mind of some advertising account executive. It's all just one big "Shock and Awe" operation.
Were not the majority of the 911 terrorists from Saudi Arabia?

The pols and bureacrats in DC don't want any reductions. They won't get their annual wage increases. And if real cutbacks were to be made they might evn have to takeup ObamaCare likecthe restof us.
You just don't get it Doug. Putting women on the front lines isn't about winning battles. Our political leaders find winning to be distasteful unless its them running for office. Obama and his sycophants find military victory distasteful hence the one's apology to the Japanese. Political correctness, that's what matters for these emotional metro-unisex mentalities. It's all about feel good ideology. It will all come to a disastrous end when reality meets their fantasies.

Will Obama Shun 'Perpetual War'?

Military weakness is not the result of an unwillingness to engage in one war after another. Our resources have been wasted and more important the lives and welfare of thousands of our fellow Americans have been sacrificed for debatable reasons. It's time we bring our troops home from Europe and with a few exceptions from everywhere else as well.

Europe's Wishes Came True

Balony! Yes, Britain, France and other European states have contributed but unfortunately for the U.S. it has been the major contributor to these useless wars in both lives and resources. Those days are ending. Europe is going to have to provide for its own defense instead of having its welfare state existence subsidized by the U.S. Good luck with your continued welfare excesses.

Feel the Healing that Higher Taxes Bring

Sure, we can just spend our way out of this debt and unemployment problem. Sure, we can raise taxes without curtailing investment but we can continue to enlarge government and not be concerned with outrageous spending and accompanying debt increase. In the meantime we can continue to support a variety of military operations of varying degrees all over the planet. We can do all these things because we are rich. We're broke and getting even more broke while our leaders continue to promote the illusion that we are rich. The mayors of some of our large cities cannot control crime so instead make shows of controlling their residents dietary habits. These and other actions are clearly signs of failed government.

An Honest Liberal Writes about Gun Control

Mexico is great example of the effectiveness of gun laws and prohibition. Besides the fact that the cartels are armed to the teeth and busy executing whoever they disagree with.you have an emmense police presence and many of its armed members are nearly if not as corrupt as the cartels. Then you just have the average lowlife criminal who is armed and going about business as usual. Who isn't armed? Why it is the law abiding citizen and he/she is at the mercy of any lowlife who decides to invade their home at night, hold them up on the road or just generally abuse them.

Budget Farce Suggests Term Limits Needed

Getting tem limits on Congress is wishful thinking. The Senate won't even pass a budget. We arre witnessing a failing government. It is in the throws of fighting a delaying action, its members working to enjoy their frivolous perks as long as possible before the logical conclusion of their malfeasance.
They will continue to destroy the middle class.
