Warbler, I'll always be a crazy conservative like Ron Paul. It's time to clean our own house. We are in bad shape. We need to re-group. Rebuild.

Bring everybody home, flip everybody off for now, and come home. Rebuild our home.

I'm tired of all this Sunni/Shiite bullsh#t. Let them cut themselves to pieces. Israel can defend herself.


Agreed. Amen. But don't we have to get off our oil addiction first?

We have plenty of our own resources here at home, should we choose to extract them.

Oh, it also means we start drilling for oil here and developing our own resources.

We've been doing that all along Ron. Thing is, it's a limited resource so once we run out, we'll be even more dependent so maybe drain theirs and then drill the parts of ours we're not wanted to now (cause it's in Yellowstone or the arctic) when the price is $200 a barrel

I dispute that. Prove it.

Plus, the tail end of oil is WAY more expensive than the first half. Heard of Peak Oil. We're there. Some folks say Fracking will save us but have you noticed gas is over $4?

US oil production peaked, as predicted in the 70s, and not because environmentalists put a stop to it

http://green.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/03/30/less-than-50-years-of-oil-left-hsbc-warns/

Even 50 or 100 years isn't a long time when we have little that promises to replace oil as a transportation fuel. You'll get yours but better hope reincarnation isn't true

I read a blog about another blog about another blog, the gist of it as follows:Mr. Putin was a KGB colonel when he witnessed the fall of the Soviet Union courtesy of foreign adventures (Afghanistan and unruly satellite republics) fighting the U.S. by proxy, foreign aid distributed liberally across the planet,a currency crisis and unofficial inflation, and last but not least one Mikhail Gorbachev who couldn't have done a better job of singlehandedly dismantling the union if he had been a CIA deep plant.
Now nearly a quarter century later Mr. Putin is laughing his ass off all the way to the bank as the U.S. suffers nearly the exact same set of maladies that brought down his former empire. Maybe Romney knew something and didn't misspeak when he answered a debate question about who, besides our own disfunctional government, is the U.S.'s most dangerous foe.

Sorry, Bluey,

Must have been reading the text and not the sidebar

I know you're not Ron, not that there's anything wrong with that

Except of this thread of course, and that GOP Wrong thread ;-)

Ron, i can't attest to the accuracy of the info from the blog of a blog of a blog anymore than i can attest to the accuracy of the info these other posters use to bolster their "opinions" on. I am highly suspect of any information currently available on any medium, it all seems like propaganda whose purpose is to manipulate the masses and pit american against american.

I agree, but at some point you have to analyze available data and extrapolate what you can based on the data available. You have to use your own judgement based on what is presented.

You can't just say everything is BS. Gotta sift through the sh#t with a comb though!

Karl, everyone knows we have AT LEAST a hundred years of oil (shale/oil/ etc..). Some say 200 years. Not to mention Canada (Keystone?) and Mexico. We should tell the f*#king Saudis to f*#k themselves and pound sand!

Let's do more business with our North American bros.

Rick is right too. The Russians are feisty little f*#kers. Let's not f*#k with them. Like Libya/Syria. We saw how that turned out.

We need to back off. Come home. Regroup. We are positioned nicely to do this. Let them eat themselves to pieces. We have a nice body of water insulating US from THEM.

F*#k them!

As a Russian Studies major I can wholeheartedly aver that whoever
occupies the Kremlin for the foreseeable future will be unequivocally
opposed to anything the US is in favor of. Russians wrote the book
on xenophobia.

As concerns Egypt anybody who is surprised by Mursi's shenanigans
has no clue. There is no word in Arabic for 'democracy'. My wife's
family has 100 years of experience in Egypt and Africa and I have
benefited mightily from their collective wisdom. Regardless of who
occupies the White House you can rest assured that any response
to the Middle East or Africa will be amateurish at best. I have been
quite amazed at Obama's indifference to Africa.

If you don't look at our history: it seems so logical to just tell the rest of the world to "Fuk-off."

As a nation, we did that after World War One and ignored the rise of Hitler's Germany, until Franklin Roosevelt and a few of his “far-sighted” advisors forced us to start supporting England, and mobilizing for WWII.

Likewise George W. Bush tried to pull back from Clinton’s administration being “policeman to the world” and then received his and our punishment in Sept. 2011.

Sorry Dooede! We are not an isolated nation any longer.

I could only imagine one of you clowns winning the Secretary of State Sweepstakes. We'd be at war with the entire ME in about 0.4 seconds. You guys have all the tact of a fart in a phone booth!

Don't misunderstand me. We have capabilities to strike anyone, anywhere without using nukes. That is one tool in the toolbox. An effective one too.

Just because we come home doesn't mean we stop firing.
