      "catastrophically poor legal reasoning" That's just an opinion about an opinion.

      The best lesson people should admit we all have learned from the last 7 years is that the ideology and policy of guy they compared Obama to when claiming he was going to bring a bright new future for America - Ronald Reagan - was one that called for smaller government as Reagan saw the government of 3 decades ago as already too bloated and broken, and this brought prosperity and growth for America. Contrast that with Obama/the left and their policies which called for bigger government. We got bitch slapped for that sort of stupidity. Trillions pissed away and things are getting worse day-by-day. Of course, collectivists will never, ever, admit the problem is big government, but will double down and tell you that the reason their big government shit failed was that it wasn't big enough.

      Any time you oppose anything Obama wants, you're being partisan. I thought it was racist? Who says it can't be both? And we can probably toss in "homophobe" and "misogynist" for good measure...

      Xetrov, don't you understand that it's only conservatives who are partisan? Any time you oppose anything Obama wants, you're being partisan.

      My favorite part was this: In two weeks, I will send this Congress a budget filled with ideas that are practical, not partisan. And in the months ahead, I’ll crisscross the country making a case for those ideas. See, if he says his ideas are practical and not partisan, that makes it reality.

      This is what Romney said in the interview referenced by the Sam Kleiner article: Well, I'm saying in terms of a geopolitical opponent, the nation that lines up with the world's worst actors. Of course, the greatest threat that the world faces is a nuclear Iran. A nuclear North Korea is already troubling enough. But when these -- these terrible actors pursue their course in the world and we go to the United Nations looking for ways to stop them, when -- when Assad, for instance, is murdering his own people, we go -- we go to the United Nations, and who is it that always stands up for the world's worst actors? It is always Russia, typically with China alongside. And -- and so in terms of a geopolitical foe, a nation that's on the Security Council, that has the heft of the Security Council and is, of course, a -- a massive nuclear power, Russia is the -- the geopolitical foe. This should clarify things, and should deflate the Sam Kleiner article aa well.

      Why Romney was wrong and is still wrong on Russia: https://foreignpolicy.com/2015/01/15/romney-russia-republican/ That's just a liberal's opinion. Hey, this hand-wave dismissal stuff is fun! Obama Can't Admit That Romney Was Right: Russia Is Our 'Top Geopolitical Threat' Just another opinion, no less valid that the one you posted.

      Also, was fun hearing about how universal free daycare (which, incidentally, did *not* exist during World War 2) is not a women's issue. This coming from the party that tries to make *everything* a women's issue.

      That you need to resort to Yoo legal opinions literally says it all. I cannot top that. Oh, you just did, by engaging in another classic CM hand-wave dismissal. Assuming Yoo was wrong about torture, it doesn't follow that he must be wrong about everything. This is just a fallacious argument, similar to guilt by association. Either you can refute the argument or you can't. Saying that the guy making the argument is a poopy-head is not refutation. Resolution 678 (1990) Adopted by the Security Council at its 2963rd meeting, on 29 November 1990 (Emphasis added) 2. Authorizes Member States co-operating with the Government of Kuwait, unless Iraq on or before 15 January 1991 fully implements, as set forth in paragraph 1 above, the foregoing resolutions, to use all necessary means to uphold and implement resolution 660 (1990) and all subsequent relevant resolutions and to restore international peace and security in the area; So there's your authorization. Just because you have personal problems with Yoo, it doesn't mean he's automatically wrong.

      Probably the stupidest line was when he said people who oppose the minimum wage hike should try raising a family on the minimum wage. That's not the purpose of the minimum wage. It's an entry-level wage, not what you're supposed to raise a family on. And I challenge HIM, if he thinks raising wages and benefits and all kinds of mandates doesn't hurt businesses to try to run so much as a taco stand.

      Yeah CM, that's the nonsense haters like you believe. Me, as a US citizen, believes that the US government should never, ever allow anything to do with its sovereignty to be decided by anyone but the citizens of the US, and certainly never to allow a corrupt entity like the UN any say in it. Doubly so when we are the ones paying for that shithole to then fuck us over at its leisure. What irks you, as was already pointed out, is that the US will not abdicate its sovereignty to a den of collectivist loving criminals and monsters. Your bias shows even though you try hard to hide it behind procedural bullshit. You can keep believing your bullshit, we will keep telling you to stuff it.

      Again, no single nation has the authority, under the UN Charter, to judge Iraq's compliance to UN resolutions and to enforce them.

      John Yoo.....of all people. Brilliant. Obviously he was consistent with his "catastrophically poor legal reasoning"...... http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2006/02/27/the-memo That you need to resort to Yoo legal opinions literally says it all. I cannot top that. On the Romney issue...there is nothing there which refutes the argument that rather than Russia being any sort of threat to the USA or wider world, it's diminishing further still and the Crimea situation is evidence of that, not against it.

      I honestly didn't know this was a fair or intelligent movie, I assumed it was another typical liberal Hollywood piece of propaganda (in this genre) i.e. anti-war propaganda. Then I realised Eastwood was behind it, and thought maybe it's worth a go. His movies seem to be the exception, immune to the usual Hollywood liberal pressures. Along with Nolan actually. Seeing the a Guardian review have to bite the bullet made me happy. Scum.

      Usually when people stop defending something, it's because it isn't worth defending any longer in their assessment. If we stay on the track of the leftists, we will soon be at that point. While my own military service flavored with a distasteful command chains of alcoholics, brown nosers, and Major trying to stay out of prison after stealing USAF equipment for resale, I'm assured that most people had a better experience.

      I have no idea what your point is. Hollywood elites spend $60 million making the movie, and nominate it for six Oscars. I think they're fine with Clint. I think you're mad at bloggers looking for hits by stirring up controversy about the MLK weekend box office hit.

      Why Obama Got Russia Wrong (and Romney Got It Right) Romney was right. Why was Obama wrong? Because, I think, he was willfully blurring the distinction between "geopolitical" and other sorts of threats. He was playing to the cheap seats. Voters do not fear Russia, or particularly care about its movements in its sad, cold sphere of influence. They do care a lot about terrorism. And Obama would use any chance he had, in 2012, to remind voters that he was president when Osama Bin Laden was killed. So you see the politics -- they reveal Obama as the player of a cheap trick. Of course al-Qaida isn't a "geopolitical threat" to the United States. It's a terrorist organization, untethered to states or geography. Obama himself (like George W. Bush before him) repeatedly claimed that the organization was on the run. How could al-Qaida be the greatest threat to America and a pathetic coalition of losers? It couldn't. Obama was spinning, hopefully faster than Romney could un-spin. Liberal mag admits: Romney was right about Russia

      I thought it was that Resolutions 687 and 689 essentially allowed the US to restart hostilities? Are you arguing this instead now? Why do you presume they're mutually exclusive? International Law and the War in Iraq But do U.S. actions show a disregard for international law? The answer here is clearly no. Both the United States and the international community had a firm basis for using preemptive force in the face of the past actions by Iraq and the threat that it posed, as seen over a protracted period of time. Preemptive use of force is certainly lawful where, as here, it represents an episode in an ongoing broader conflict initiated -- without question -- by the opponent and where, as here, it is consistent with the resolutions of the Security Council. Despite these actions, other leading nations (primarily France, Germany, and Russia) and many international scholars have argued that international law did notjustify the war in Iraq. The first part of this paper will explain why their view failed to properly read existing Security Council resolutions to authorize the use of force. Even putting the United Nations to one side, the war was furtherjustified as an exercise of self-defense. Under basic notions of...

      From what I have read, and others concur, this is much ado about nothing. The changes that the press has been tauting so highly look llike they are addressing a serious problem, but the fact is that they are exagerations because they don't address the problem and still leave the door open to the same level of abuse we have now, with just a little bit more effort on the part of the top men involved. As with everything else these people do, it is lots of talk and very little substance. I wouldn't even call it a step in the right direction, because I am too used to the people in this administration talking out of both sides of their mouths, and know better. Buyer beware.

      "Use whatever alternative words" = use whatever words you like, I'm just gonna imagine what you and everyone else says and thinks and reply to that instead. "If the vast majority of the world’s Muslims don’t agree with your version of their religion, then your claims are wrong" So if the Pope was correctly quoted the other day and, let's say, he did actually say it's ok to hit someone who hit your mother..... I can't say he's practicing Christianity wrong eh? Even though I am right and even if a billion Catholics said I was wrong, I'd be right and they'd all be wrong. Eh? Didn't read whatever garbage you wrote after that, you've made the same stupid arguments devoid of rationality or reading skills before, you simply don't seem to be able to read, so why bother? Happy to answer other questions from people who actually are not oxygen thieves. I'm just wasting my time here as it's just repeating the same arguments that you can't seem to understand. You're probably not even thinking for yourself, just repeating the silly arguments you read of Huff post and whatever, Idiotic statements like "oh, look, here are some Muslims who don't support terrorism"...

      Use whatever alternative words you like, the point remains the same. If the vast majority of the world's Muslims don't agree with your version of their religion, then your claims are wrong. Who are you to determine how they practice their religion? There are hundreds of millions of devout Muslims who are not involved in terrorist plots. Otherwise there would be considerably more attacks and they would be constant.
