I was remembering back in high school when the only people who cared about politics were the social study nerds who made their parents subscribe to US News and World Report. Now everyone cares.

Given that Barrack Obama really likes drone strikes and will therefore never nominate a candidate who opposes them, who should he pick instead of Brennan?

I support drone strikes and I support hurting John McCain's feelings. So I'm fine with these nominations.

Have we discussed the Joel Connolly report that Gregoire will be nominated to head EPA?

I like the idea of the theory that Obama wants Hagel so that he can cut the defense budget.

Further, I agree with Hagel's goal to reduce reality to a more synthetic unity within the system of transcendental idealism by expression in rational categories and it's far-reaching impact on the Defense Department as a whole.

Leave it to Republicans to purposefully misconstrue his dictum that "the rational alone is real" is an antisemitic statement.

I agree with this editorial: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/20…
which is why I support his nomination.

Would you prefer a stupid-ass ground war?

@3 I can assure you that the vast majority of High School students still don't give a shit about politics.,

Not everyone who wants to reinstate the draft is a hawk.

I want to reinstate the draft and make it so that there are no deferments for both men and women (exception being certifiable mental illness).

That way, next time there is a war, people will have to give a shit about it, including the bastards in Congress who might vote to authorize it.

As it is now, no one gives a shit since very few Americans are affected by our modern wars such as Iraq and Afghanistan.

@1

You're mixing up "anti-Israel" with "daring to question the infallibility of every action by every Israeli government ever, no matter how detrimental to their own best interests and regional peace." Common mistake in our country.

@ 3, US News & World Report (now owned by Morty Zuckerman, the douchetard dood) has ALWAYS been a completely fictional mag and rag.

@ 6, No sane person ever discusses Joel C.
