Re: 60% favor going after ISIS

Well, if we do, I would like to see these lists a little more even or what with all the big talk on here, maybe even a little more on the "right" side!

 

JAW DROPPING: We’ve Compiled A List Of Repubs And Dems Who Have Served Their Country, Or Not.


In 2015, you’d be hard-pressed to find a Republican who wasn’t all for a military retaliation against ISIS.
In fact, one could go back any amount of years/decades and find that Republicans push for military action in almost every circumstance abroad.
It almost seems as though Republicans enjoy sending people to war; maybe it feeds their testosterone fueled idiocy, who knows.


One thing is for certain. While Republicans are really quick to start a war, or even knowingly go to war with the wrong country, they definitely don’t believe in serving their country.

Re: 60% favor going after ISIS

At least I was serving my country and performing a vital mission that would eventually bring the cold war to an end.  We had several little wars after that one.  When and where did you serve during those?  I know when and where I was.  C'mon smart a33 tell us about your military carreer!

Re: Knowing pure evil

You've brought us Larry Kudlow and one of Joe Farrah's neophyte interns.  

 

Noticable is is the relative silence of Pat Buchanon.  Could it be that he hears the quacking and realizes that it is indeed a duck?
