“Each missile costs $2 million. They will fire off at least 300 of them, of which about 15% will do real damage, So there's $600 million gone, plus the manpower and fuel costs. We're looking at about $3 billion here to "send a message". A message that Barack Obama declared then-President Bush did not have the constitutional authority to do. Liberals, stop being hypocrites. Oppose this war mongering on your side too.”

“$3 billion minimum for the first foray.
and in 2 months the goptp will be demanding that cost be offset in cuts to programs that help americans.
it will be added to the debt, and congress will be wailing that the debt ceiling can't be raised unless obamacare is defunded and cuts are made to "entitlements".”

“The money to produce these missiles has already been spent.
So, we are actually dropping FREE BOMBS.”

“We can oppose it all we want..but how will that change anything?
Unfortunately, the people don't get to vote on things like this.
I wish we could. I think most of us, on both sides are against this.”

“...and here at home we'll all get to watch the social media videos of dead Syrian children.”
“Starbucks is a great company to its employees no doubt. But if every company has to raise its prices to do what Starbucks can do now the American economy will be an even more miserable place to be than it is now. Inflation will push all prices up, gas will top $5 due to the weak dollar, etc. Obamacare will have to be paid for somehow. It would have been cheaper and less disruptive to subsidize private health insurance for 30 million Amerians that it is to bring all the insured down to the same level.”
“Thats what they all said, all proud liberal Democrats, truth hurts doesn't it? So you call somebody immature while using the term bagger? Theres the pot calling the kettle black in more ways than one.”
“Hey, wait a minute here...this wasn't self-defense, it was workplace violence. The burglar was working and has every right to a safe work environment. Who needs the Justice Dept, the Labor Dept will get all over this, maybe a little OSHA intervention.”
“We already know they included the Boston Marathon killer in this number. How many of those people were criminals killing criminals? Police killing criminals? Criminals shooting an innocent jogger like today in Oklahoma? Honest Americans shooting a criminal. Come back to us with the real number of innocent lives taken by other innocent people.”

“Over the last decade, roughly 60-65% of all gun deaths have been suicides.”
“Once again, liberals make excuses for criminals by blaming the weapon. It's the person, not the weapon. A woman and her kids were raped stabbed and burned by 2 criminals in Connecticut 5 years ago - didn't need a gun. If I had an AR15 - don't have one - I wouldn't go on a rampage. The guy that will use a knife or a bat on you possibly will go on a rampage. Grow up liberals..”
“What this article is saying in effect, is, Democrat voters are too dumb to get a photo ID. I would think you whiners would be offended by the dumbing down of your party, not what the governor signed.”

“What your comment is saying in effect, is, you are too dumb to understand undue hardship. I would think you uninformed would be offended by the dumbing down of your species, not what the governor signed.”
