“There are two sides here. Obama who wants to keep the printing press going which will make the deficit about 20 trillion when he leaves office. He does not care that at some point US money will become worthless around the world. Then when people stop buying our debt, he will be out of office making millions a year on speeches.
The Repubs try to be conservative but that is hard to do when 40% of the country are takers and not makers.
It is a dileman!”
“Stop complaining about this Country.
Give workable suggestions.
Besides the King of Chicago has made this country into a third world one!”

“OK how about getting serious about having every single gun purchase,including giving a gun to a friend, family member or stranger go through a serious background check. How about any person that has mental health issues that could put someone else at risk be flagged an not be allowed to buy a gun. How about we stop selling military type weapons to the public. You want to play with them join the military. How about we start teaching the younger generations that guns do not solve problem and are only to be used in situations of life and death. How about not buying guns form manufacturers that make guns for 5 year olds. Children need to be children and not think about learning how to kill. There is time enough as they get older.”
“So, your econ 101 courses that you took at a liberal college said it was fine to spend more than you make. And that if you need money, just print it the way Berneke is doing.
Right you are one of the takers who voted to obtain more for nothing.”
“Our local media stated that people who worked there where cicilian employees. This was suppose to be military facility with classified information.
Don't we use those in the military anymore.
We have money for outside hiring but not for military spending.”

“They are mostly civilian employees for the Department of Defense and the Department of the Navy--an indispensible component of the DoD team. To a lesser extent, civilians are also present as contractors, and it was this category to which Mr. Alexis (the shooter) apparently belonged.
The government civilian employees bring expertise and time-on-target that uniformed service members typically cannot. Having uniformed service members do the work of DoD civilian employees would tend to degrade their warfighting skills over time.
Aside from tthe immediacy of this shooting, the bigger question is how much we should rely on contractor support. Contractors fill important gaps, and they often employ highly talented, former members of the military. But as we've seen with Alexis and Snowden, they can also be the chink in the armor.”
“You are very correct that I am not as intelligent as those in Washington or yourself.
But, I will compare my "sharpness" against you intelligence any day of the week.”

“Your post shows any lack of sharpness that you may think to have. You are dull and unrefined, in intelligence and in making the rest of humanity hope that there is a better world. Because of dullards like you that dare to use their political feelings to cloud their judgment and uphold the bloody virtues of third world dictators, we continue to scrounge in a dark age. You need to retire from having opinions from this time on.”
“Obama does not share the American people values.
Get the hint. We are tired of being the world's policeman. Tired of giving up the lives and limbes of our children and grandchildren.
Anyone who votes for an attack should be automatically put int the army.”

“Since he cannot get it passed by either parts of Congress, he claims he can attack.
Can he be impeached?”

“IF he acts without the people support and IF he goes against congress he is outta here. Now the question is will he? Answer: HIs ego could drive him to it.”

“Wishful thinking on the impeachment idea.”

“He "could have been impeached" a long time ago, but everyone is afraid. All they want to do is get elected, time after time.”

“Give it up...
Obama has no real desire to bomb anyone. He got what he wanted: Dismantlement of Syria's chemical weapons and Russia's ownership of the Syrian crisis. Also, the UN will be doing the inspections. Obama has to keep the threat of military action alive in Assad's mind. Try to keep up...
By the way, if you want a President brought to justice, you should screaming for Bush's arrest (along with Cheney, Rumsfeld and Rice) for war crimes. Now that's real....”
