Just because it is the most fair to-date does not mean there is not room for further improvement in equality and fairness.

Quote :
"they don't know war"


There has been war in the middle east for as long as a lot Millennials have been alive. And conservatives can't not scream daily about war with Radical Islam.

Quote :
"poverty"


The poverty rate in the US has remained pretty consistent since the 1960's only fluctuating between 11 and 13 percent. There was a peak in 2010 at around 15 percent however.

No. You completely missed the point. Compared to previous generations, as I said, "in the history of humanity", we don't know war, poverty, or suffering.

Millennials haven't seen a draft, actual poverty (think depression era) or actual suffering. The baby boomers and millennials are spoiled rotten, and have been pussified to the point where despite being the most privileged, we are somehow finding ways to invent "oppression" to complain about.

To compare any of the Marxist SJW protest/riots going on in 2017 with actual activism in the 1960s is a bad joke.

Look people, there is no point in arguing with someone on this who believes sexual orientation and gender identification are diseases that can be rehabilitated. The fact that you hold that belief means you don't view it as an issue of equal rights but rather as something like a broken leg. That view is horrible, unempathetic and maybe a bit sociopathic but it's not worth arguing.

"“States can pass whatever laws they choose,” Sessions told a crowd of attorneys general at the National Association of Attorneys General Winter Meeting. “But I’m not sure we’re going to be a better, healthier nation if we have marijuana being sold at every corner grocery store.”"

Opioid abuse is a HUGE problem for these dying factory and blue collar towns. If POTUS wants to stop drugs from tearing apart American families and towns, he needs to focus his attention there.

Did Nate Dog ever sing "shoot heroin everyday"? Case closed.

OK, I guess my post wasn't clear. Of course weed isn't an opioid. The president should be addressing opioid abuse in the country, not wasting time and clogging our prisons with weed dealers.

So Flynn was lobbying on behalf of Turkish interests while serving as national security advisor. He was paid $530,000, which explains the bizarre op-ed he wrote calling for the US to be more supportive of Turkey's leader and to return Gulen.

The literal definition of pay for play. Amazing. This guy wouldn't even be fired if not for investigative reporting by WaPo.

sorry, yes i should have said that he was a lobbying for the turkish dictator (without registering as a foreign lobbyist) while a trump campaign adviser. he ended his contract a few days before he accepted the national security adviser position.

and everyone is definitely lying now about not knowing

I feel like I have to say this any time I'm defending Trump now - but I can't stand the man and hope that he makes his exit at most after one term.

Having said that, nepotism in the WH is nothing new. It has been going on as long as there have been cabinets. I read an article this morning while waiting on a dental cleaning in the Smithsonian magazine regarding the Liberty Bell's trek across the country. It was done to raise money for the war effort. The money raising was the brain child of Treasury Secretary McAdoo, who was the son-in-law of then president Woodrow Wilson. Look at the Kennedy's FFS. JFK's brother, wasn't he the AG?

What I would like to see are arguments against the merits of people that Trump is putting in place, and that's ok and it seems like that is what most folks are doing. But talking about nepotism itself, it's not like Trump is breaking new ground here.

I don't like it, and I'm not defending Kushner or Ivanka, but I just wanted to point out that it isn't anything new.

"

Every American condemns the atrocities in Syria, and we cannot help but be shaken by the images of innocent women and children dying. It is also true that often in foreign policy, things are not as simple as they appear, and actions often have consequences well beyond the obvious.

It is for this very reason that the Founders wanted a deliberate, thoughtful foreign policy, and when military action was needed, they wanted it debated and authorized by Congress.

Make no mistake, no matter who is president or what their party is, it is my firm belief that the president needs congressional authorization for military action, as required by the Constitution. I call on this president to come to Congress for a proper debate over our role in Syria, just as I did in 2013 when President Obama contemplated acting in Syria."

I believe that nothing about this situation has changed. Military action is not in our national security interest and should not be authorized. Our prior interventions in this region have done nothing to make us safer, and Syria will be no different.

There is no doubt Assad is a brutal dictator. But if we seek to remove him, we must ask what comes next. Assad is fighting radical Islamic rebels, including large parts of ISIS. Who would take over Syria if Assad is deposed? Experience in Libya tells us chaos could reign, and radical Islamists could control large parts of the country.

Make no mistake, bombing Assad means the United States is fighting on the same side as ISIS and other radical Islamists in Syria. This is a dangerous and morally wrong policy.

But no matter your view of the merits of engaging in Syria, every member of Congress should stand up today and reclaim our Constitutional authority over war.

The Constitution clearly states that it is Congress that has the power to declare war, not the president. Even the War Powers Resolution, shoved forward by hawks as justification, clearly states criteria under which the president may act – a declaration of war, a specific statutory authorization, or a national emergency created by an attack on the United States.

That’s it. Absent those criteria, the president has no authority to act without congressional authorization. Congress must stand up and assert its authority here and now.

No president is above the law or the Constitution. I said so when it was Barack Obama, and I will say so when it is Donald Trump.

Our Founding Fathers had this right, and we should heed their wisdom about allowing the president to have war powers. They were concerned the president could rule like a king.

Madison wrote that the Constitution supposes what history demonstrates – that the executive is the branch most interested in war and most prone to it. The Constitution, therefore, with studied care, vested that power in the legislature.

Before any act of war, we should have a serious and thoughtful debate over the ramifications.

In Syria – what is our goal? What happens if we depose Assad? Will the Islamist rebels, as they have threatened, turn their weapons and attention elsewhere, including Israel next door?

I will hold accountable and oppose the actions of any president who takes military action without proper legal authority and congressional consent.
