Obviously my earlier post struck a nerve with you since you decided to use my term "obviously" right back at me. :wink:
Struck a nerve? On the contrary, it tickled my funny bone :roll-laugh1:
Military industrial complex? (yes I know what that means so don't try to explain the term) Really? I thought Iraq cost America $1.7 trillion and $6 trillion worth of veterans care. :wink:
Logical fallacy. If you know what it means, then why are you attempting to conflate the massive profits incurred by military hardware, munitions, weapons, etc., companies such a Boeing, General Dynamic, Raytheon, etc., with the wars' negative consequences such as higher taxes and indebtedness bestowed on average American people? The MIC is not negatively effected by these costs and higher taxes, rather, it's how they make their livelihood.
I have a copy of the Koran right here and while Islam acknowledges Jews and Christians as "people of the Book" and consider Christ a great Prophet they despise the Christian doctrine of the Incarnation, considering it blasphemy. Islam is inferior to Christianity.
Tell me something I don't know...
Let me say this: the wars in the Middle East will continue to give America a bad name in the Islamic world for years to come as the reputation of our armed forces over Abu Ghraib, Guatanamo, renditions, waterboarding, etc. will also be continued to be questioned. But when it comes to the nation harsh tactics are needed to safeguard the homeland. I acknowledge the fact that neoconservatives in the Bush cabinet started useless wars in the Middle East simply to safeguard Israeli interests. I myself however am not terrifed of Islamic terrorism since those people don't know how to park a bicycle straight. :wink:
I agree. I also agree with using harsh tactics, but only when a real attack is imminent or when we've already been attacked. Since the orchestrated false flag attacks on 9/11, and the subsequent U.S. military campaign effecting our imperialism in foreign lands, it is true more Muslims extremists have been spawned due to the horrendous treatment they've received. It's an intended Hegelian dialectic - Problem, Reaction, "Solution" - that keeps the War Machine turning indefinitely, however, prudence needs to be used when deciding when to use harsh treatment. Most of these Muslims are not a threat to America or the Constitution, despite their disdain and hatred for the U.S. If DHS and the DoD really wanted to keep the U.S. safe from Muslim terrorists, they would simply end immigration of Muslims from regions historically "hostile" to the U.S., and prohibit visas to the same people so they cannot travel here. There is the 99.9 percent of the "Muslim terrorist threat" solved, right there! What about U.S. installations in the Middle East and abroad? We need to pull out - NOW. Most of the U.S. presence in foreign lands needs to end immediately. This is another solution to preventing attacks on the U.S.; and it would save taxpayers exponential dollars.
Good for you, but even this obsession with the "free market" is based on fallacy, since regulations and taxes are needed on businesses and stiff regulations are definitely needed when it comes to our popular culture.
Perhaps you are obsessed with New Deal programs of FDR and other sugar coated names of socialism and big government intrusions on the lives of people?
Keep U.S. jobs here by law. Prevent outsourcing and closing of factories by traitorous, mammon worshiping corporations; other than that, for the most part, there should be no govt intrusion, except regarding safety for workers or when there is a detriment to public health (such as Monsanto's GMOs). I believe there SHOULD BE mandatory labeling on GMO "food".
Let freedom reign; and keep it American and Christian, baby!! :dancing:
