What would auto insurance cost if we used it for new tires, replacement wipers, batteries, car-wash, etc and had NO deductible?
That's what we expect from health insurance and we wonder why it's expensive...
There you go again, assuming I am pro war just because I asked you to explain your reasoning.
I accept your answer that none of them are a fundamental threat to America and therefore we should not spend scarce resources on them.
Now let's apply that same criteria and logic domestically, shall we?
What threat to America exists that requires a gun be put to the head of taxpayers to finance corn, sugar, wheat, ethanol or oil subsidies or even the $2 billion paid to farmers to grow NOTHING?
What pressing emergency requires that people have money taken from them forcibly to provide another person with a cell phone?
Is there a pressing need for homeland security to take our hard-earned money to purchase 12 snow-cone machines and a beer-brewing kit?
Or $150 million per year taken from working americans to upgrade federal employees airline tickets to first class from coach?
Are any of those things even as big of "a threat" as Iraq was ? No, but you guys just keep right on defending the folks that bring us all that and more.
By some of you guys' logic I should stop in every municipality and county I drive through and give them a token for my car passing through.
Do you have an answer for my question? Why is it wrong for america to go to war in those countries?
Profit and greed have fed more mouths and cured more sickness than charity or socialism EVER will.
Addlips comment tells us why we are doomed.
Take a innocent idea and attach everyones "rights" to equal treatment under the law and you are left with two choices...
Force everyone to use english only or fund the tower of Babel.
I think Roach actually makes a pretty good point.
I do not support the move but he's right on how and why it got done.
Can you please tell me why, in your opinion, it is wrong for America to go to war in places like Iraq or Iran or Libya, etc?
Many times in this blog I have stated my opinion that the ills of this nation go way deeper and much farther back than Obama and that they span the pollitical establishment from right to left.
At our last communication in "Omar Campbells "Ship of State" you had NOT ONE coherent, intelligent reply to my 8 point rebuttal of the statement you directed AT ME... NOT ONE!
Even though I DIRECTLY stated in point #5 "we agree that Bush was a failure. I didn't vote for him." but did you take note of that? NO!
Here you are again accusing me of "According to you every ill of this country was caused by Obama..." You simply don't read or you are intentionally mis-representing my oft-stated position.
Frankly, I think that you are so blinded by rage whenever anyone attacks your mascot that you see nothing but red.
Unless you can acknowledge the concessions I make and speak truthfully and to-the-point about my statements I wish no longer to converse with you.
You misquoted me. I said "ratholes like government haelthcare" NOT "...ratholes like government and healthcare. The "and" kind-of shoves the argument to a much broader vantage point from which you are more comfortable attacking me, no?
There is no difference in losing billions on fraud domestically and losing it in Iraq. I agree that what happened in Iraq was inexcuseable. Please take note of that last statement... What happened in Iraq was inexcuseable. I heard about the lost billions. You did hear that those billions were not ours... they were funds that belonged to Iraq that America had frozen in our banks during the war, right?
I would like to ask you a question about lost billions if I may.
If we had a government that was smaller, lets say only in charge of a half billion dollars at any one time, would it be easier or more difficult for that government to lose billions of dollars in Iraq, healthcare fraud, Solyndra, etc? Hmmmm?????
Whether for right-wing programs or for left-wing programs, government can not lose money if it is not allowed to posses those funds to begin with. That alone is a valid argument for smaller government, no?
