    I know I buy gas at $2.15 per gallon. Our oil industry must be doing something right.

    I agree that we don't need to be in the ME as much. I think we should sell weapons to those we can use and not to those we can't or don't want to.

    There are posters wanting us to stop helping SA in Yemen. That would accomplish exactly nothing. SA is going to fight there no matter what.


    Al-Qaeda is in Yemen. They are our enemies too. I don't see why we should be concerned about the Saudi's fighting them.

    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

We fund and give arms to Izrahell to invade other nations. etc, ad infinitum!

    And bankers make tons of cash funding both sides of a war, and launder trillions of illicit drug money.

    “Why, of course, the people don’t want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece. Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship…

    Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”

    We, the USA, has accepted the task of securing the free flow of oil to our friends to secure peace in the world. It is as simple as that.

    Considering your anti-Semitism I doubt it's surprising to anyone that you take Goering as an authority on anything.

    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Yes, it really is. Some of us don't understand that the US is the primary support for the current global order.

    Who would the rest of the world trust more with that responsibility? Russia? China? Oh.... The UN.

    We should pull out of the ME and use that money to build and protect our own country. Trade with all ally with none.
