Shut up and stand ready is my choice. We need to stop the intimidation games at every corner. The USA and North Korea are equal in the fact that neither of us have a Leader that knows anything about War and winning Wars. Certainly not insinuating Bush did either for you political dogs. Problems are solved with solutions not by drawing lines in the sand. J. Kerry reminds me of Lurch from the Adams Family show.. you rang.

The US military bombed Iraq to smithereens and invaded Afghanistan, even. Been there for quite a while.
They don't have nukes, NK does.
They're going to launch a missile soon, so it is getting interesting.
If they launch a rocket with a nuclear head on it, what city in the US would they aim for?

So many cities, so little time...

Well, it seems the war mongering all knowing righties are up early today. The bird shows his leadership by running in all different directions and then mocking the secretary of state because of his looks. Certainly shows where your upbringing has led you. Problems are also not solved by going in and blowing things up in a shock and awe mode without a plan. Heard that one before. But, there never has been a war that a Republican did not like. So, how do you think the Chinese would react to your "blow them up" mentality? As to keeping track of the money spent, that was your hero's problem as he kept the spending on the wars off the budget. Nothing like twisting the facts. But, that is normal for the right.

Centerfield, now that you brought up leadership, IMO a true leader will look in all directions for solutions. Looks are a very integral part of first impressions for humans and we should be considerate of that fact. How about we come up with an Asian American to represent us over there? Does that fit in your world dominance plans.

Have you read about how the Koreans use their tallest soldiers to man the border? It gives the impression they are big peoples and should be more feared. Our own Military has minimum height requirements also so we look big and intimidating when we approach our enemies. The greatest of all wars are fought and won/lost in the human mind.

Now, what about these taxes, animal. Seems you want to twist that too. Let me see. $400,000 in salary, 11,000 in interest, $250,000 for a book...hmmmm $661,000 gross. Deduct- $50,000 to retirement-Allowed, $120,000 to charity-allowed, and other legal deductions of around $140,000... Leaves $335,000 in taxable and a total taxes of $112,000. That runs around 32%. Not quite the percent you posted.. Now, we don't really know what Mitt paid as he did not want to release it. But, lets figure 12% on how much income? Oh, $24-$25 MILLION in income. Just a little difference. Well, lets throw in the hedge fund managers who take in $25-50 million a year and pay 15%, thanks to the tax gifts to the rich. Maybe you should preach a little honesty, animal, since you never seem to have any. Why do you care about dollars spent now when you had no interest when you party darn near destroyed the economy and spent like drunken sailors. My apologies to the Drunken sailors.
You have a lot of brass to talk about a true leader when you supported Bush, who went AWOL during his military vacation, as well as perpetuating a lie to get into a war with Iraq. Invading a soverign nation on a lie. That's leadership? Look down, you are standing in quicksand.

You wingers are so precious. There is one disagree on the Presidents taxes which I took directly off his tax returns which are listed on line. You guys are soooooo smart????

Center buddy, sorry but i did not support Bush. I wanted Ross Perot, brand that on the inside of your eyelids please. Personally I have never followed party lines and always try to see the greater good and vote that. I don't think the political parties and their staunch followers care about anything but themselves. It must to be obvious to most people or we wouldn't have so much discontent with the Federal Government. You and many like you have messed the bed you lay in and you don't like it because nobody will fix it for you. Scream and cry all you want but someday you will have to be responsible to Humanity. And thanks for dragging me down to your level. Have a great day.

Do we really want to start a nuclear war? We need to negotiate with them so that it doesn't come to war, but we can always park a couple of our missile subs somewhere between Korea and Japan as an insurance policy.

Bird, you are so eloquent when you are defending your illogical and non-factual opinions. Your alleged indignation is pitiful. There is not anyone on the blog that believes your statement of being an independent. That is a laugh. I believe Ross only ran once and got some support but then the supporters went red for the most part. That would be you. If you really believed in the greater good politically, you would be harping on the Republican obstructionism that has been rampant for five years. But, that is easily explained by listening to Fox News and Rush, who put the blame for everything on the Left. As do you. Leave the false indignant verbage in your closet. Oh, and that bed you mentioned, could hardly be messed by us, since the congress has filibustered almost 400 bills, the house has done nothing, the deficit is shrinking, and the policies, bills, wars, and other spending measures have flowed out of the Republican administration.

Center, sorry buddy I'm not in your pigeon holes and never going to be.

Center, I finally figured out what he great separation is between me and you, you are happy or at least OK with politics as they are and I don't believe in politics. I am a firm believer that when a person is elected politics needs to end and they need to work together as one party representing the people of the USA to the government not representing the government to us. It's not entirely your fault for being that way but many times people are what they imitate.

Maybe we should all stop buying North Korean (Kia) to start with.
Seems nowadays the more a certain country hates us the more we buy from them.
Oh yeah I'm sure thats considered racist or something on those lines.

Kia is headquartered in Seoul. That's in South Korea...
Ah, such a snowy morning but it really reminds me of Earlybird. Totally walking in a blizzard of dreams. Obviously, you don't deal with reality in the political scene. It is what it is. The right wing likes it as evidenced by the "conservative" wing of the Supreme Court who believe that "corporations are people too". We have to deal with what is out there and unfortunately, the middle class and lower have no say in our government. It is set up for the rich and the corporations which is what the Republicans support. They don't even support you, bird, but you "blindly" support them. Yes, bird, you live in the dream world. I have stated many times that nothing can be done until we do complete campaign reform and get the rich/big corporations from buying the laws. Ah, but you missed that... Must be that zero visibility and no travel advised into reality that you live in.

Must be a slow day for you animal. I got my figures directly off President Obama's "tax" forms which are on line. Did you miss that. I am sure you remember your sources since they were wrong. You don't read Liberal material anyway. Fibbing is not allowed but in your case, we come to expect it. The deductions taken were allowed, just as the waitress has deductions she can take. Now, I am sure that you took deductions this year too. But, the figure for President Obama is around 31%. What was Mitt's or the Koch brothers rate. How about the Wall street boys and Hedge fund manager who get special tax treatment from the Republicans and pay around 17% on millions and millions of income. So, come on animal, you read liberal media? More fairy tales from the right.

Center wrote.."Obviously, you don't deal with reality in the political scene. It is what it is." Thank you I was wondering if you were getting the drift of things, simple as can be here it is again... I do not support your less than ideal reality in politics as they are. I believe politics needs to stop after being elected to office. Politics are for the campaign trail and not for making laws. People like you who perpetuate divisions among citizens of the USA are the biggest problem we have in government. Put that in your pipe and smoke it!!
What to do about N. Korea....that is the question. I would say negotiate till they make a move. Use our allies to do the negotiating. If they do nothing, we do nothing. A preemtive strike would serve no purpose. He knows it is a war he can't win. He is a little man with little man syndrom. He wants to play toy soldiers, let him....In the meantime watch his every move and let him make a fool of himself.

Was going to add, none of the options in the poll fit the profile I would prefer. So I did not vote. Whoever wrote this poll forgot the walk softly, carry a big stick point of veiw.
Centerflake, are you gainfully employed?
