Iraq Vet

A young man, haunted by his life in Iraq and Afghanistan. He looks SO young but he does not smile. Empty eyes, and even in the midst of a crowd very much alone.

MIC Eisenhower

It all comes down to profits for those who have more to gain from war than peace. We have McCain in the Senate who never met a war he didn’t like. Why, because he can line his pockets with considerations.

The idea that Obama did NOT do anything on LGBT equality is something that HP has been suggesting almost from the very beginning of his first term. The same goes for his record on job creation. At the very moment that his historic decisions were producing their first effects, HP was eagerly joining the GOTP choir that was crying ‘Where are the jobs?’.

We are now witnessing the inevitable consequences of going into a war in a nation that posed no threats to the US, was politically stable, sectarian, where Shiites, Sunni and Christians lived side by side in relative harmony and al Qaeda was viewed as an enemy by all sides.

Fighters of  al-Qaeda linked Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant parade at Syrian town of Tel Abyad

Who does ISIS have to thank for the deadbolts being broken on the doors to Iraq? They ought to commission a bathtub self portrait of George W. Bush out of gratitude.

Yes indeed, I have a new plan, for all of you. A plan of hope. A plan of adventure. A plan of such extraordinary magnitude as to take the breath, and challenge the senses, of all who would consider it. A plan to bind our common people in hope, and finally free our conscience for noble purpose.

The Navy played an important role in supporting the D-Day Landings. Off of Omaha Beach, my dad and his crew bombarded beaches where American forces struggled to survive.

Bad guys with guns are always on offense and can kill anyone at any time. Good guys with guns are necessarily on defense and rarely in the vicinity of bad guys with guns…and they could only act AFTER the bad guy has pulled out his gun and shot someone. So no, they don’t stop the bad guy from killing.

HP Divorce

Not only has HP now refused to dance with the one who brought them to the party, they are jumping into Mark Zuckerberg’s Ferrari and waving back at their community with a champagne glass in hand as they speed away.
