any idiot would have given the order

looks like some idiot didn't give the order even though they had the resources


"the Bush administration blew a critical opportunity to capture Bin Laden in 2001. Bin Laden was wounded and on the run, but top Bush national security officials rejected repeated pleas for reinforcements from commanders and intelligence officials fighting the terrorist leader in the caves of Tora Bora, despite the availability of resources...
. Instead, the U.S. command chose to rely on airstrikes and untrained Afghan militias. [...]
Even when his own commanders and senior intelligence officials in Afghanistan and Washington argued for dispatching more U.S. troops, [Commanding Gen. Tommy] Franks refused to deviate from the plan.
The report “removes any lingering doubts and makes it clear that Osama bin Laden was within our grasp at Tora Bora,” but that decisions made by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, his deputies, and other top administration officials allowed Bin Laden to escape."

I'm with her

LTTE New York Times about Vatican crackdown on US nuns.

"How can there ever be too much focus on poverty and economic injustice? And how can the Vatican justly rebuke women busy selflessly carrying out Christ’s work caring for the least of our brethren for being silent on abortion and homosexuality, while for decades bishops were silent about grave sins against the innocent in their care?"

I stand with Patricia Burns of Edgewater New Jersey

The First Lady makes me understand how fortunate we are

to have her in the White House instead of someone like the clueless Ann.

We want a tax code that supports traditional america values

hard work should be rewarded
idle leisure class is a deadweight on the country

Time to have earned income with the lowest tax rate...investment income near highest tax rate...death tax sized to prevent lazy do-nothing heirs from living a life of leisure.

I think Trayvon's family should sue the home owners association

Then I think the homeowners association will be forthcoming about how Zimmerman is not following the rules set up for the neighborhood watch.
Right now the idiots are defending Zimmerman; once its them or Zimmerman, they will return to their roots and defend their own interests.
