    Are you nuts! If Karzai could write, he would not have gotten the job.

    Yes, people lie. And, government oppresses. They are immutable laws of human nature.

    What was that cost again for the IRS to make sure everyone complies with Obamacare?

    Actually, the bribes to Karzai were chump change compared to a lot of the other war costs. (One war being necessary, and the other one ridiculous……..)

    You have a gross misunderstanding if you think one cent of foreign aid is squandered on foreigners. They get vouchers that can only be spent by giving them to Friends of the administration (Bush, Jr gave out vouchers that could only go to his Friends, Obama gives out vouchers that can only go to his Friends).


    Even the Marshall Plan was in the form of vouchers the Truman administration gave the Europeans so they could buy food from American farmers who were Friends of the Truman administration. (And enough of those farmers voted for Truman that he won in ’48, defying all odds. See the Oliver Stone history of the US for details about the Marshall Plan.)

    Several years back, I mistook an 8 printed by a dot matrix printer on my W-2 form for a 0.
    I owed $8 in taxes and they spent more than $8 in postage threatening me.

    “One war being necessary, and the other one ridiculous”

    Neither war was necessary. The Taliban was ousted by the Northern Alliance, with the help of American air strikes & a few thousand Special Forces. We should have left the Afghans to fight or share power as they saw fit once Al-Qaeda was ousted.

    Instead, Bush placed the ‘trusty’ Karzai in power & moved on to his real goal: Iraq. Obama made the typical Presidential mistake of thinking he could fix the mess.

    Troop levels in Afghanistan:

    We would all be better off if we ignored the trolls (Ms. Ima, HOWGOZIT, Gore Bane, onguard, ConserveGov, etc.) … all they do is spew the same one-and-two-line bulsit (misspelling INTENDED!!!!) on each page — rants that get under the skin of right-minded people … consider that either (1) none of them care any more than to hit-and-run like most who spray grafitti on any blank space, and don’t really care what anybody thinks, or (2) some right-wing/Tea Party sugah dadda pays them to spew this garbage, making them low-life freeloaders, just as they accuse everybody who actually employs actual thought processes before posting on the Internet.

    I would be VERY interested to see a DD214 proving more than three months of honorable service from any of these right-wing trolls … but I expect that could never happen …

    Just a couple of cents from a 20-year USMC (Ret) who earned a master’s degree in something other than a redneck agenda …

    The IRS should get credit for auditing $Millionaire’s returns. The last report says they have collected $Billions because of unsupported Deductions.
    A Flat Tax structure benefits the rich, but not as much as the current tax structure. Almost anything would be better than what we have, now.

    @Fuzzy Thinker (I)

    If you think a “flat tax” or a “Fair Tax” would be better than what we have now, you haven’t done much study on it. Both are essentially the same thing a consumption or “Sales Tax” and as such are highly regressive. It benefits the wealthy and the elderly disproportionately. I could go into detail but you are a smart thinker, you can do an internet search and find plenty of self-interested sites extolling the “virtues” and then you can find credible sites actually analyzing the plans and figure out for yourself why they are a travesty. I do agree though that the current system needs to be overhauled, but I don’t expect either party to actually do anything about it, and especially not in any meaningful or revenue neutral or revenue improved way.
