    Outstanding work joe as all of your work is. There have been times when some “decent” things have been done by this nation. But on the whole, this has never been a “decent” nation. We’ve long ago passed the point of no return on that issue I believe.

    exactly….the democrats were present in government at the time to give us that if they so wanted to without one single republican vote. That it didn’t happen is all you need to know.

    the fake “shutting down the government” ploy that doesn’t really shut down the government is the go to governing stance of the “greater of two evils!” I’m sure that is coming first and foremost and the theater resumes as if nothing has changed and it really hasn’t.

    exactly….it was awesome! Which is my point….if you’re going to be called a socialist regardless of anything, at least do something that even a tiny hair that would resemble it would have been nice.

    military empire has to end mulp. No one who is elected wants to do that…D or R. No one can possibly represent me. Until that happens, everything is a lost cause.

    who cares. In 2008 with a solid majority, the Democrats only accomplishment was passing a republican health care plan. The votes were there for public option, Obama could have forced all democrats in both houses to do it. If you’re going to be called a socialist regardless, do something to warrant it, no? McConnell stated immediately upon Obama’s election that the goal for republicans for the country was complete failure. He flat out stated it. So Obama made it his goal to appease McConnell and his ilk. It was an impossibility from day one. someone said once if you have a republican running against a republican, people will vote for the Republican, not the republican that has (democrat) after his name. the proper results occurred this election. Republicans controlled the Senate with a minority. They deserve a majority without question.

    Wasn’t the plan a little over a year ago to have ISIS in charge of the entire nation of Syria?? Wasn’t it?

    I know this as I am an “essential” federal government employee and I have never not gone to work during a “government” shutdown. The one’s I have been involved with I just don’t get a paycheck or a full paycheck, then eventually I get back pay. More of the same.

    You know how this works, it’s why the government shutdown ploy works so well in their minds. There is no such thing that has ever happened as they separate out “essential” employees who still have to go to work such as federal air traffic controllers. These federal government employees whom are “essential” continue to go [...]

  • I was simply answering spockos request in 121 not realizing he had already answered himself. Sorry.

  • Rush Limbaugh did throw out it’s a distraction from the border issues rather than Benghazi. So your number 3 point was hit within an hour…wrong issue however!

  • Regardless of his mental state, that is desertion plain and simple. Trauma can take many forms. You have the guy who walked in and simply started gunning civilians down (can’t remember his name), and you have the opposite reaction in Bergdahl’s case where he just walked away. Based on the Hastings article I read, I’m not sure his mental state was all that bad. What is a normal reaction when you experience trauma?

    What I am seeing and reading about the reactions to Bergdahl speaks to the sickness of this country in it’s entirety. This is yet another sick episode in the “war on terror”.

  • I read that entire article. And it’s why I don’t think if Bergdahl deserted it is a sign of mental illness. I would argue the opposite in fact.

  • In my opinion “desertion” may actually be an indicator of stable mental health rather than the opposite. I am speculating that he deserted, but I do think it is likely.

  • I’m not sure what you’re talking about. The Taliban exists whether we have solders or not. So if Bergdahl didn’t do what he did, the Taliban ends? What are you talking about? It’s 14 years and the Taliban exists still. Bergdahl is meaningless to the story of the Taliban.

  • “Desertion” is an interesting concept. alantx offered his opinion on the type of soldier Bergdahl was. I will offer mine. My guess is he witnessed crimes being committed by the military and simply got sick of it. You cannot go through “proper” channels. Bradley/Chelsea Manning is in prison going about it the way he/she thought he/she should. Let’s say a German soldier in 1943 showed up at a “final solution” camp and couldn’t do it. He simply one day walked off and turned himself over to enemies as a POW. How would we view that deserter?? Yes, I’m likely comparing apples to oranges but not really. Horror is horror. Many have differing levels of how much they can take. We have zero clue if Bergdahl turned himself in to Taliban or simply tried to escape and was caught by them.

    And in the end, all this is simply another sad tale of the empire.

  • So you were in Bergdahl’s unit to have an expert opinion on what type of soldier he was?

    I agree. I’m close to 100 percent certain it was an inside job. You look at everything, it becomes almost as plain as day. I know this is anathema for a “liberal” to be declared a “truther” and agree with Alex Jones on this, but you know those conspiracy guys when everything is a conspiracy [...]

  • I don’t “know” it…I just think he’s FDLs version of Colbert but rather than portraying a right-wing media doofus, he’s portraying an Obamabot. I think he’s pretty talented. I’ve reached the point where I look forward to reading his inputs!

  • If he puts a tag it sort of defeats the purpose. I’m still a bit surprised people are still criticizing erik. He is 100 percent parody, I think it’s pretty awesome myself.
