you have issues if you believe that......please get help
Rob - you make a lot of sense. Remember though, everything this Administration does is to destroy America, they will never give him credit for anything he has done that is good.
say Hello to Cuban Stogies!!!! Remember though Elk, regardless of what Obama does, it is always a failure, just ask the RWNJs, they'll gladly remind you every day.
Here you go Pole......an excerpt right from the Dept of State.....sorry you couldn't find it yourself:
Utilizing these Executive Orders, the United States has steadily increased the diplomatic and financial costs of Russia’s aggressive actions towards Ukraine. We have designated a number of Russian and Ukrainian entities, including 14 defense companies and individuals in Putin’s inner circle, as well as imposed targeted sanctions limiting certain financing to six of Russia’s largest banks and four energy companies. We have also suspended credit finance that encourages exports to Russia and financing for economic development projects in Russia, and are now prohibiting the provision, exportation, or reexportation of goods, services (not including financial services), or technology in support of exploration or production for deepwater, Arctic offshore, or shale projects that have the potential to produce oil in the Russian Federation, or in maritime area claimed by the Russian Federation and extending from its territory, and that involve five major Russian energy companies.
Dickw - let me be clear here, we need the CIA, of course we do. Of course they have provided valuable intelligence. However, turning a blind eye to their misdeeds is NOT being a patriot either.
yes pole....lots.....but I'll let you do the research on it. He got this one right. Not a fan of his by any means, but I think he did well on this one.
Incorrect Dickw - what they did in Iran to overthrow the government has been publicly released information, not conjecture. Iran Contra, not conjecture either. Extraordinary rendition, not conjecture.......why can't they come into Italy anymore, because the courts their convicted them of kidnapping. I think that is running amok.
Dickw - a few quick things. What the CIA/MI5 did in Iran to topple their government set the domino pieces in play to get us to where we are today. Iran Contra....remember that? How about Extraordinary rendition? These aren't choir boys. Now, I will say and totally agree with that we need a spy agency, every country does. However, when they run amok, they need to be reeled in.
Russia is hurtling towards an economic crisis as its currency continues to plummet. Ruble in free fall.
Looks like the economic sanctions imposed on Russia after what they did in Ukraine are actually working, and it didn't cause us to put 'boots on the ground'. Looks like Obama got something right.
Will it cause your head to explode if you admit he actually did something right?
DickW - please be specific. What lies have I bought into. The fact that the CIA and Brits are responsible for the mess we have in Iran? The Iran Contra scam - drugs for guns? Proping up Dictators for commercial profit.
Did you know that the #$%$'s did the exact same thing the CIA did in the 40's, and they were tried after the war and hung? Are you aware of that? So, when we do it, it is OK, if someone else does it is a crime against humanity. We have lost the moral high ground. Time to regain it, don't you think?
He really has no clue........he drank the far right kool aid and spouts bumper sticker talking points from the Tea Party.
You wrote: "Hussein is a warmonger and a racist , born and raised communist who hates America.
What were you independent voters thinking. Everyone knows democrats love communism and government rule. It was ignorant independents , liberal j ews who hate Israel and bon bon eating fat oprah watching independent and republican women that put this evil person in charge of America." - it is scary that someone like you is around and about in this country. You sound dangerously ill - please seek help! The ACA plans include Therapists and Counselors, please take advantage of them and good luck in your mental state recovery.
it is a regional issue....the local regional countries should/need to get together and handle this.
Absolutely Rob....bring back conscription......then we wouldn't be so complacent about what and how we do things. Mandatory 1 year service in the military, just like in Germany, it would do wonders for this country.
Elk and Bum.....the guy lost because he didn't own "Romneycare" - he is actually, or at least in Mass was, a complete moderate. If he had picked someone that wasn't a complete joke like Ryan, and vowed to make the ACA work, he could have won for real. He catered to the fanatics on the far right and that cost him. He miscalculated ..... well, just an opinion.
You are absolute correct Pole.....they are centuries behind Christianity. Believe me, I'm no fan of how Islam treats their own or others. I think, my opinion, is that we need to disengage and let them figure it out on their own. When they finally get tired of killing each other, then we can welcome them to the rest of the world.
Is it because, maybe they are onto something? Maybe that they are right? Education is to challenge belief systems, to make people think, not to indoctrinate them, like religion does.
They remind me of tactics that sick #$%$'s did in the 30's. You can't get there tomorrow, but over time and with enough influence you can change belief systems.
