7. Time To Shut Down This "We Are At War" Crap
Get ready...this is going to be the constant harping of the GOOPies as they get more and more desperate as we get closer to the election. The hyperbole will be kicked to high boil and we'll get fearmongering on a scale unseen in history. If it's not the A-rabs and "Islamofascists"...it's those damned brown-skinned Frito Banditos climbing over the border...or its those colored folks trying to take over our government. Trust me, there won't be a fear card that won't be played...it's ALL they have to go with.

So...if we are at war, then let's act like a country at war. Let's start with rationing precious resources...ration gas and put price controls on the price. Let's raise taxes to make sure the war is paid for and our military gets every thing they need...not some half-assed police action that turns into a "war of attrition". Let's have a draft with no exclusions or exemptions...send all 5 of Mittens kids to Baghdad and relieve the stress on the forces that are already there. If they want this war, let them fight it.

We are NOT at war...except with ourselves. We have inserted ourselves into Iraq and totally destroyed the country...and our economy and military in the process. The only war being waged right now is on the middle class and the poor...those who pay the real costs for the rich man's games. We have a facist regime hellbent on lining their pockets than protecting this country. And hopefully others see this bullshit for what it is.

Here's hoping Holy Joe gets a nice seat in the docket in the Hague along with all the other war criminals. As a Jew, he is an embarassment to my faith and heritage. I guess the term "Never Again" has a statue of limitations.
