Actually, there's some real concerns about northern border security, but jihadis from Canuckistan would have to work hard to inflict a greater loss of life and money on the US to eclipse what we get from south of border.

Just to be clear, unless things change I'd certainly vote for Trump over any of the Dems.  I'm just saying we need to see a lot more before putting our good name in his hands.

It is not like we have a lot of choices. No one I would prefer  has near the attraction. Trump beats what the pub establishment would shove down our throats.

Trump nailed the CNN reporter tonight. Thousands of people for Trump and CNN wanted to ask him about a couple of protesters present.

Cantor endorses Bush.....Bush should have said "don't do me any favors".



The more Trump bitchslaps the corrupt media, the more I like him.

The 14th Amendment argument will be a very tough one to make too.  There is a lot of headwind against the reading Trump is advocating, even from a lot of right of center talking heads.

Screw the talking heads. The actual victims of the criminal invasion are much more compelling.

32  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Re: FP: on: August 17, 2015, 08:00:14 AM
Let the dominoes fall. Launching strikes against Taliban targets has become all but off-limits for the handful of American special operators still working in Afghanistan, FPís Sean Naylor reports, though commanders have recently added the Islamic State to their shrinking hit list.

The number of missions that the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) conducts in Afghanistan have been slashed in recent months thanks to restrictive new targeting rules which specify that the Taliban canít be hit unless a specific target poses a direct threat to U.S. interests or allies.

Limiting the strikes against Taliban operatives doesnít mean that the war is winding down, however. Late last week, a spokesman for the Defense Department said that since January, a staggering 4,302 Afghan soldiers and police have been killed in action along with 8,009 wounded in what has by far been the bloodiest year for Kabulís security forces since the ouster of the Taliban in 2002. Overall, 13,000 Afghan security forces have been killed over the past three years.

Not all Taliban-related groups are in the clear, however. The Haqqani Network continues to be hunted by JSOC, though only after a thorough scrubbing of of the details of each mission by military leadership. It remains to be seen whether the recent naming of Sirajuddin Haqqani, the head of the network, as the Talibanís new deputy commander will further complicate JSOCís ability to target the group.


Enemies are just friends we haven't properly appeased yet. See Iran.

GM:

The WE piece you post says "U.S. government debt stands at $210 trillion, not the official $13.1 trillion". 

Ummm , , , aren't we at $18+T?   

A strange error to make , , ,

Still, of course I get the point about unfunded liabilities-- and it is quite valid-- but without a proper grasp of the numbers it is hard to know how accurate they are.

I doubt anyone has the real numbers at this point. The key element is how severe a situation we are facing.
36  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Re: Government programs & regulations, spending, deficit, and budget process on: August 15, 2015, 08:59:53 PM
Forgive me the quibble with your hyperbole, but proportionally we are not even close to being the brokest nation in history.   For example, doesn't Japan have a debt/GDP ratio of something like 245%?

Anyway, if my math is correct, current numbers mean a very slight decline in debt/GDP ratio.


http://money.cnn.com/2015/07/23/news/economy/japan-debt-imf/

Japan: Roughly 11 trillion in debt

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/study-true-size-of-federal-government-debt-is-210-trillion/article/2565559

US: approximately 210 trillion.

I recall conversations where using the term "Islamofascism" was considered some sort of insulting sloganeering. And then I read a piece like this and wonder how folks who can get so worked up over a coined term that contains more than it's share of congruence to reality can't find a commensurate measure of outrage in face of information such as that found here:

Krugman and Bernanke are walking down the street and see a pile of dog shit. Bernanke says ďIíll give you twenty thousand dollars to eat that pile of shit.Ē Krugman does it, gets paid, and they keep walking. After a while they see another pile of shit on the road. Seeing an opportunity for revenge, Krugman says ďTell you what, Iíll give YOU twenty grand to eat that pile of shit.Ē Bernanke does it, Krugman gives him back the money, and they keep walking. After a while Bernanke says ďIím feeling pretty sick. We both ate shit and neither of us is any richer.Ē Krugman answers ďYouíre missing the bigger picture. Weíve increased GDP by forty thousand dollars and created two jobs.Ē

Hahahahaha!  Good one, BBG!  It might be funnier if it didn't perfectly describe the wisdom guiding current economic policy.

Exactly.
