Wonderful news. As you pointed out, most of the casualties are not on the front line. IED's (roadside bombs) have been a leading cause of death in this war and these are not selective killings. Good to see the women getting protection fitted for them. It is shameful it took us into our 12 year of war to do this.
Richard Dawkins: why didn't you ask why the Iraq war was off the books until Bush left office? If you were so concerned about the debt, you should have thought about and protested the war like you are protesting Obama. Iraq war cost us 3 trillion. What did we get in return for this war based on a lie? 4800 dead Americans, nearly a million dead Iraqis and a pile of debt.
Where's the outrage?
Romney and the host of the party Marc Leder of Sun Capital are both private equity managers. They make huge profits on performance fees, which is income. The hedge fund and private equity managers lobbied Congress and had a loophole put in which changed their fees from income tax to capital gains which is taxed at a lower rate. Thus, Romney pays no income tax. If anyone is a free loader it is Mitt and the hedge fund managers. Mitt won't even release his tax returns because he knows he hasn't paid any income tax. Sheer hypocrisy and disdain for America.
Get more background on Marc Leder by googling Marc Leder and his party at the Hamptons.
This poll is an affront to me. Look what the Vols did by replacing Fulmer with Kiffen.... oh Gosh, there are no words. GIve Derek Dooley a chance. He's a kind, smart man who is Vince Dooley's son. Give him a chance. I stand with Coach Dooley.
I would like to see a debate in TN-27, too. Frank Eaton vs. Richard Floyd would be great debate.
Fifty Shades of White by Mitt Romney
Gee, I thought there would be some people at the Convention in Tampa. That is Tampa, isn't it? Newt promised he'd take his campaign all the way to Tampa. Hate to see the big Bloviator leave the stage.
The Dems have two great candidates: Bill Taylor and Mary Headrick. Bill Taylor is a CPA and businessman in the health care industry. Dr. Mary Headrick is a retired physician. Both know and are protective of Medicare and Medicaid. As opposed to Fleischmann who voted to kill and privatize it.
Here's a link, embed didn't work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTrgT8...
Mayfield said he doesn't have any differences than Fleischmann, so why run? So far, he hasn't given us a platform only stating he will tell us after he is assigned a committee in Congress. How arrogant and presumptive of the ice cream heir.
Kudos to Weston Wamp and his connections for releasing the devastating video. Mayfield ought to know his life is public now and speaking at a political forum, especially in front of college kids, is open for scrutiny. We all saw first hand he isn't prepared. He reminded me of George W. Bush, but worse... it was horrendous, in epic fashion.
Btw and off topic, what happened to the preview, link, italics, bold and block quote buttons? I would like to embed the video. Should I use basic html for this?
