Re: Chicken Littles

rsbs; what is sad is when you use those excuses.

 

Clinton and uranium

FALSE according to Snopes

 

And if you have not heard the tape of your now president, then look it up and then check out how many women have accused him of sexual attacks now.

Re: Chicken Littles

Buce, when you read a partisan piece like that, and see the author resort to using phrases like "seem" and "probably", isn't there anything  left in your body from your critical thinking course in college that puts your radar up? If not, you must have been an easy lifetime mark for salespeople.

 

How about your hero Paul Krugman.....he was so convinced that a Trump presidency was going to be the end of the world as he know it that he said the markets would crash and never recover.

ILiberal New York Times columnist Paul Krugman predicted economic ruin with no end in sight under the new president. Specifically, he said that the markets would never recover thanks to Trump.

"... really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. When might we expect them to recover? If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never," he wrote.

We are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight. I suppose we could get lucky somehow. But on economics, as on everything else, a terrible thing has just happened.

This, of course, has proven to be false. 

 

Be happy, keep spending your monthly retirement checks, and just keep your progressive male hands to yourself, and life should be just fine.

 

Trump has made America a better place, and it is going to be hard to run against him. I don't think the liberal standard bearer is going to be either Al Franken, or Keith Ellison...and pretty doubtful that Pocahontas will be on any ticket either without turning in the results of her $59 DNA test. My humble opinion.

Re: Chicken Littles

From your link. "U.S. intelligence agencies have reported "with high confidence" that the Russian government was behind break-ins to the email accounts of Democratic operatives during the 2016 presidential campaign as part of a campaign to "undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process" and harm Hillary Clinton's "electability and potential presidency."

 

 

 

To this day the DNC has refused to allow the FBI to examine their computers and we still don't know who hacked them. We are to take their word for it.

We have "military actions", and "military operations",
Not to say they are less dangerous or demanding,

But not all out war

Re: Earth to elcheapo

Sam,

 

True enough, but it is a “water spigot” sort of war we are now fighting. We can turn it up, down, or just turn it off depending upon the mood of the country and poltical climate of the moment. More American men died on a single day of fighting at Antietam Creek in Maryland on September 17, 1862 than have died in 15 years of Afghanistan. Given the then US population in 1860 and what it is today, a similar battle like Antietam fought in 2017 would mean the loss of close to 50,000 men in a single day of fighting in either Afghanistan or Iraq.

 

In other words, a decade and a half of spigot wars in Afghanistan and Iraq cannot ever be confused with a single summer month of fighting in Mr. Lincoln’s Army in 1864, John Pershing’s Army in 1918, or Dwight D. Eisenhauer’s Army in 1944. It is like comparing apples to Buicks.

 

For 98.5% of us, today’s foreign troubles is what peace looks and feels like (so far) in the 21st centrury. And a good thing too.
