    That is the American Federal Government in a nutshell. Afterall, it was Reagan and North who propped up Bin Laden.

    The rule against personal attacks is really good one.
    If one doesn't attack others, one will find one is attacked less.
    Most of those we strongly disagree with have some merit in
    their views. I even like some people I hate....er, disagree with.

    Then life will be difficult indeed.
    But it appears that you do care.

    It's not like caring makes it any easier. I don't want to continue this discussion since it's derailing the thread.

    It's good derailment when there's potential for resumption of equanimity & civility.
    We can always choose this path.

    Dems use the back door. Repubs use the front.

    The middle class isn't even on the table for anybody. It never was since the fifties.
