How will they do that? You don't understand. They can't. The only thing they can do is pull the funds. And they won't.
Of course, if the White House decides to reduce forces in 2008 as has been reported, the Dems will take credit and claim victory. Not in Iraq...but in Washington.
Oh, and I find it amusing that you claim they will be seen as "giving the plan a chance" while they pronounce it a failure all summer. Nice.
That's exactly what happens, actually. And you're mocking their deaths that have been practically encouraged by the Democratic leadership. Also nice.
Hey while your feeling so special don't forget you didn't address any of my assertions!
You just dismissed them as being nonlogical. Sorry that doesn't cut it.
Now I know you're young. Smoking out? I was only 16 in 1969. I know they start young these days but we were a little more innocent.
I have nothing against people keeping what they earn. However the world is a lot more complex than that. And some have learned to keep more of what they earn than others under the current tax laws.
It was my generation that started the focus on young people. We are the only culture that doesn't embrace and honor people who've been around awhile. The theory being if you've made it that far you've learned a thing or two in that time. Don't worry. When I was young I couldn't see that either.
1. Yes, you do. You even said so in the next sentence. Ironically, you don't realize that the "poor" got to keep more of their money...as did the middle class. Yet, that won't stop you from sticking the party talking point of "tax cuts for the rich." And pssst: Tax cuts for the "rich" work. Kennedy did it. Reagan did it. And both times those tax cuts benefited the economy, not just "the rich." But you're party blindness can't see that.
2. If you were posting that just to point out the issue of respect for one's elders in our culture, I would agree. But you're not. You're pointing it out to try and prove that your opinions are more qualified than those that are also mature adults in the forum. It's really quite a lame argument and cheap tactic to pull the "I'm older than you" card, especially when you're in your 50s and I/we are in our 30s. If you were talking to teenagers or 21 year olds or what not, you might have a point.
Yup! They do. I didn't say I approved of it. I simply see their strategy.
Politics has become so convoluted sometimes in that game you have to do the wrong thing to accomplish the bigger good thing. Sometimes you have to play by the opposition's rules to win.
I didn't say it was right.
Like I said I realize that democrats like libertarians and republicans or whatever are politicians also.
Uh, yes you did. You said exactly that. "sometimes you have to...." You implied that you sanctioned it. In fact, no...I'm wrong...you actually said it.
