Dude served his country honorably and why can't he run for Congress?
Back off man !
HD please and popcorn too
Follow the money guys say 65% of the $$$ originates from the Kingdom
Actually the Iraq assessment was done by a Democratically-appointed CIA Director and staff ..,,,,
As for right and left wingers --- both "teams' are low grade morons as are most politicians.
I say take our armed forces out of handcuffs (yes they've been in handcuffs for many many years) and give them one week without the handcuffs on to see what they can accomplish. My bet is within one week a US military minus the handcuffs could Kentucky fried chicken fry, dismember (ie. behead plus), and/or "fill with lead" about 60-75 % of ISIS
Well that's very kind of him, since he and his kingdom are 100% behind and backing ISIL / ISIS.
He needs to get a grip, clean up his own "backyard" which incidentally happens to be the breeding ground of 90% of all modern day terrorists.
Is that nutcase still posting here ??
From what I remember he's been posting trash on this board for years and has turned this supposedly Ford Board into a political cesspool---- Ford should cut off his pension for trashing their message board.
You'll only hear about it during cocktail #$%$ chat inside the Beltway, but it's bad, very bad:
Studies show that 80% turn to Islam and approx 15% of these become radicalized. Given prison populations we're talking upwards of 100,000 radicalized individuals in state and local prisons.
I sure wish this country had better things to offer these folks ---- and we need to start thinking about this problem and helping these folks before the dark side gets them.
Says market is rigged because of the Fed
Says market is rigged because of the Fed
Hey Old Lib Coot --- try reading the July 2014 Fed Reserve Report on
2013 Report Economic Well Being US Households
It's tells it like it is --- people are busted and not doing well at all
Today's Yahoo Headline Article:
Nearly five years after the recovery began, Americans in alarming numbers believe the Great Recession permanently damaged the economy and that many aspects of the lifestyle they once enjoyed – a good job, income security and more – may never again be theirs.
Even more troubling, most Americans don’t believe the economy has actually improved – or will improve – despite nearly half a decade of job growth and declining unemployment rates since the recession officially ended in June 2009.

These and other findings are from a new study released Thursday morning by the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University.
“The slow, uneven and painful recovery left Americans deeply pessimistic about the economy, their personal finances and prospects for the next generation,” Carl Van Horn, the center’s director a co-author of the study, said in a statement.
The Heldrich Center is a leading research think tank that has tracked the economy and the American job force since 1997 and researched the effects of the recession. The center’s goals include strengthening workforce education, placement and training programs. It’s also done cutting edge research on the declining morale and mental health of those who have lost jobs or are just hanging on.

The new findings are similar to those of other recent polls and studies attempting to plumb the public’s psyche over a long and uneven economic recovery. A recent Wall Street Journal-NBC News poll found 71 percent of Americans believe the country is on the “wrong track,” while 7 in 10 blame the malaise on President Obama and Congress more than on structural problems with the recovery.
Again, old coot you're not keeping up with current events --- try reading (for once) the following out the Fed just a few weeks ago:
Supplemental Appendix to the
Report on the Economic Well-Being
of U.S. Households in 2013
Hey old coot -=--- guess you don't read or didn't review the Fed's own study!
A Federal Reserve study has been highlighted by several news media reports which have primarily focused on how family net worth has been hurt by the financial crisis and the recession. This USA Today article reported that "The median U.S. household lost nearly 39% of its wealth from 2007 to 2010". Much of this lost wealth is due to large declines in home values. I reviewed this Federal Reserve study and found some other findings that show the problems of the Fed's zero interest rate policy.
Part of the study looked into how incomes have changed from 2007 to 2010. The study broke down the incomes by categories, and one category is "Retired". Table 1 on page 11 shows that the mean income of families with a retired head of household has fallen from $53.5K to $44.4K. That's a decline of 17%. It's likely that much of this decline can be attributed to the big decline of interest rates. This reduction is probably becoming much worse as retirees' long-term CDs and bonds mature.
That little fact just eliminated NY City and Washington DC from my upcoming vacation plans.
Our HUMINT (human intelligence) on ISIS is horrible and we're in deep trouble because of it
The latter has been whopped unmercifully for all intensive purposes
Most have lost significant ground the past several years
Definitely --- she committed at least three (3) felonies....."Orange is the New Black" should reserve a guest slot for her after she's served some time
In a word - disgusting.
Hillary has done a remarkable job of hiding what everyone in DC knows about her -- if you want a conflict t'd up somewhere she has and will continue to vote for it. My big problem with this is the US gets absolutely nothing (e.g. Iraq) when we send our troops somewhere these days --- just a big ugly bill with no return.
