Send the entire Congress and the entire Obama Administration to Syria to fight the war on terror in the Middle East.

It will be supported by the 90 percent of Americans who are tired, sick to death, of this never ending fiasco.

If they want to fight the war on terror so bad, then they can go and fight too. They're all chickenhawks, everyone of them, doesn't matter if they are dumbocrats or rethuglicans, they can fight too.

Diane Feinstein and Chuck Schumer can lead the way with no guns in their hands.

It would be a great day for America.

Just think all this is because of religious beliefs! God created Man. Cain killed Able. Man has been killing man for their so called God. They die for Allah! We die for our religious beliefs! In the end we all die! So much for the intelligent life on this planet!

"Our war on terror has no end", that's what I said about 12 years ago!

The article says..."During the past decade, U.S. strategy against terrorists has been primarily defensive"...

Whaaaa. The use of "defensive" here must be in the same context as the use of defense in "department of defense" formerly known as the "department of war". Has the MDN so blanked out he Bush years that it has forgotten the Iraq war?

The flood in Colorado is Obama's fault, just like you blamed Katrina on Bush.

willgrr, did you read where bdgi said for those who actually need it, he could support that?

For those who don't actually need it, who could be gainfully employed at some kind of job, I don't support life-time SNAP benefits or welfare.

Saying "vets and children" while leaving off those who are able to work but choose not to limits the argument...in your favor.

No surprise there. Another emotional ploy by a liberal.

Another thing. Certain people will go on and on about "waste" in gov't, especially Dept. of Defense waste. (Toilet seats)

But what about "waste" in other gov't spending? And what about "fraud?"

I do not mean to insult "veterans and hungry children" but there are examples of waste and fraud in the Dept. of Agric. SNAP program. Let's get Dept. of Agric. as well as Dept. of Defense cleaned up and accountable, shall we?

But wait, there's more. While we're at it, let's clean up ALL gov't waste and fraud and make ALL gov't programs accountable.

What a wonderful world that will be

Do you pray to stop being a moron -- or have you accepted that this is the Lord's plan for you?

Veritas, what difference does it make? They died in Katrina and they are dying in Colorado.

The Toyota Tundra has more domestic parts/labor than our big three. We must fight terrorism smart. Profiling works in the fight because the vacant eyes are a give away (remember the Canadian border crossing find? It was the eyes. We can't waste money on Iraq type wars. We can't listen to Bengazi news and take our eyes off the big picture. The reds have made Bengazi the issue of the year--that kind of distraction is a danger to the country. We need to feel concern for every protector lost and stop the pres. bashing. Our mil. is doing well at getting the bad guys. Respect them all.

What if anything have all the investigations revealed? It is just a political game plan designed by Carl Rove--he said it. It gives fox (bengazi) talk something to fill their time and your ears instead of real news. They did it to Bill C. for 8 years and all they got is a girl friend--50% of us have one. Not nice but in the grand scheme of things--peanuts. Those who listen to or worship rush should get help--he is the problem not the answer. He is vulgar toward women. I like em. Dont be a fox brainwashed experiment. be a news junky and fact check everything. Have you noticed the blues don't lie on the internet like the reds? If the wealthy take control they will take your guns faster than any lefty--the history of our world has proven that.

It limits the argument, willgrr, the argument. Of course, the recipients are not all liberals...

I feel for the families affected by the incident at the DC Navy base. I hope the investigation brings answers.

Whistler: "You know with all the influence garr and his alias’s have with Bryan O maybe he can get a convention of posters to attend = no doubt would have great national coverage for garr and Rugby and maybe Rachael Maddow could do a fair assessment.

"Love to meet JackA, OldDog, stunning, Loco, Disgusted and the list is just far too long but we could have a blast as versitass would say. Love to see how OldDog ;-) is doing and we could have Wadye Nelson from Hillsboro moderate."

Yes, I do like the many personalities I've "met" here on MDN. Now I can't comment for anyone else, but that convention thing? I just don't know if I could handle that much virtual fun.

I thought this would be an intelligent discussion of the topic but all I see is sophomoric nonsense about the personalities of posters. Do any of you have an astute comment to make on the subject?

The war on terror is essential and takes many forms, here at home and abroad, but can we afford the Homeland Security Budget with its typical federal waste?

whistler I certainly don't know this blog, so I'm sure you are correct. Thanks for the warning. I probably won't post much on this topic. I'm on for the Racy book article by Andrea--the book that is listed as a exemplary book by ND Dept of Instruction, complete with sado -masochistic graphic sex for our North Dakota 11th graders. A book selected for ND by Common Core standards in education that are coming down the pike.
