I don't believe we should commit our military to war without first giving a lot of thought and research into why we should or shouldn't put them in harm's way.
The story of a unique flagpole and what it stands for.

WAR

The republicans hurry to war but refuse to care for the veterans their war created. With that in mind, I believe that more veterans than ever are going to vote for a Democrat who is against senseless WAR! Bernie Sanders has been against all our wars since he has been a Rep. or Senator. Nearly all the GOP candidates are in favor of said wars. They even want to start another with Iran.
There is a lot of federal money that is supposed to go to the States highway funds to repair roads and bridges. The Tea Party controlled House has held up those monies.
POW trades have happened for almost all wars. Those who argue that we should not trade for our soldiers don't seem to understand that if we leave them and don't try to swap for them we will have trouble getting people to join the service.
Hillary's debate skills may not be enough to defeat Trump in the debate, she may need one or more strategies, depending on how Trump conducts himself, to win the debate not only on substance but when it comes to perception.

Sgt. Bergdahl

As far as Sgt. Bergdahl is concerned, I think he should be given the benefit of doubt. We don't know what he witnessed to make him walk off into the enemy territory. Some soldiers are more attuned to combat while others are less so. I feel that he was overcome by his experience.
Despondent and angry, could Bergdahl have walked away expecting to die?
First , let me say I am not a big fan of labels like "conservative" or "liberal". I believe they are misleading at best. Second, I have some questions and would appreciate some answers.
The purpose of the American Jobs Act is simple: to put more people back to work and more money in the pockets of those who are working. It will create more jobs for construction workers, more jobs for teachers, more jobs for veterans, and more jobs for long-term unemployed.
