The military should pretty much be abolished. I guess keep the Coast Guard around to prevent Canadians sneaking in over the water, but that's about it. I don't see any benefit to any of this shit.

Fuck Cruz, fuck Clinton, fuck everybody.

Not quite RBH but I did watch the first televised Democratic National Convention . Adlai Stevenson was nominated to run against Dwight Eisenhower and it was boring as shit but my dad being the hardline Dixicrat he was we had to sit and watch it every night . I was an adult when JFK was shot.
Looking at that bunch of asshats we have to choose from,hopefully to effect some positive change in the way this world is headed, I gotta say it's been downhill ever since

"That's not to say that the world is safer because Saddam Hussein is gone. It is significantly safer."

 

No, Mr. Jeb Bush, this is false.

Sort of like a few years ago when Obama told us all not to worry about ISIS?

JV Squad, bro. Also, the Yemen model. 

 

This is why only Billy McRaven can lead this country.

Brutal dictatorships worked well for the U.S. and for the people living in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and those other countries. The Arab Spring has been a catastrophe.

Sort of true. The Hashemites have far and away been the best authoritarian rulers in the region. Brutal dictators worked OK for the US but not well like Abdullah, Hussein, and Abdullah II.
