Hillary's emails and losing my vote

Leaders have a responsibility to not only lead by setting direction and establishing goals, but they have to uphold the standards by which their people execute those goals. One of the standards that a large number of government employees must follow [more]

Re: Poll: How much should we spend combatting IS

The very same resources they now tap into to spread hate,war and displacement around the globe. Funding for this sort of stuff apparently is not a problem.

Joint force consisting of the money and armed forces of Indonesia, Pakistan, Turkey, Saudi, Iran, etc.

Re: I'm Not Tired of War

To say that this is really al-Qaeda or al-Zarqawi or wal-Jihad ignores the caldron in which it was created. There is nothing al-Zarqawi in the way that al-Bilawi executed a brilliant tactical military takeover of Mosel.

A fair point, [more]

Re: Poll: How much should we spend combatting IS

One would think that at some point the 'innocent muslims' would gain the sympathy and support of other Islamic countries.

And use what resources to do anything about it?

I see no way that countries that are predominantly [more]

Re: Poll: How much should we spend combatting ISIS?

It basically comes down to this:

Do you feel obligated to stop an apocalyptic evil that hypothetically could spread world wide and will inevitably lead to casualties in CONUS? Or do you look at how it would be limited by things like [more]

Re: I'm Not Tired of War

De-Baathification ensured that anyone who understood how to run the basic infrastructure in Iraq was disposed and chaos ensued.

Re: I'm Not Tired of War

Wouldn't the success of the Sunni Awakening support the assertion?

Re: I'm Not Tired of War

As a result of Regime change #2, many Iraqi military personnel lost their jobs in the Iraqi military. They eventually became the core fighting and training group for the Daesh.

While there may be individuals who fit that model, I [more]

Re: The case for light rail

In other words, there is no case for light rail. It's a monstrous drain on the taxpayer.

I thought the case for light rail centered on lower energy consumption and carbon emissions as the primary driver and decreasing road congestion [more]

Wifi extention ideas?

I recently set up a TV in a room on the opposite side of my house from my wireless router. This has proven to be too great a distance for my poor roku to be able to detect my wireless signal.
