What's ignorant is your single minded support of this misconceived, misadvised, misguided and mismananged war that's a drain on our resources and our economy and has done absolutely nothing to make us safer; infact quite the opposite.

Yes, I'm sure you're all for war profiteering.

But how are you getting that I am looking to give more money to do more tasks? Are these not tasks they should already be focusing on? Key word in my statement is "if" it takses more money.

I am willing to give money for a return on a better healthcare system and more stable funding for our education system and more available resources for education in inner cities that lack funding our children are our future are they not? If it is possible off of our current taxing than great but if I lose 5 dollars on a paycheck to see these things help revamp our falling infrastructure I will gladly join in for your future, my future and our kids future.

I feel our elected officials can do this job if we washed this party line BS and worked together but until then I will say that I am very dissastified in there performance as a government and looking out for there fellow countrymen.

I guess I would like to say I have hope which seems like there is definitely a lack of in our country right now.
What evidence do you have that throwing more money to the public school system will yield better results? The District of Columbia spends an enormous amount of money on its school system ($14K+ per student a year) and fails miserably. The solution to the failing public schools is not more money but competition. The inner city kids you are so concerned about would benefit much more from being given the choices that wealthier families have, a choice in what school they attend. Public education is the only field I can think of where if you continually fail in your primary mission, you get to keep your job and get more money to fail with next time.

Even more so than education, which states and local communities do have a responsibility for; the government, especially at the federal level has no responsibility for health care. The reason we have this "party line BS" and will not "work together" is because a large number of Americans do not want the government involved in their health care. Which government agency have you ever dealt with that delivered its services in such an effective and efficient manner that you would want to entrust them with your health?

Would that be the same Rupert Murdoch who supported Hillary Clinton this year?

Murdoch is a private citizen with no role in the government.

Are you going to show us who sold the war with a promise of cheap oil or just admit you were wrong?

Nice try, but the issue remains. What reason for continuing our efforts in Iraq is being given now that was not stated before the war?

Yes, and you prove it more and more with each post. Would you like to explain what a "privileged contractor status" is or is this just another talking point that you simply repeat without being able to substantiate?

Then I guess Halliburton is good to go then. They are not profiting off of the destruction of our future or lies.

Sure they are. Sole-sourced by their crony Cheney.
