    Yup, photo op = whole hearted support. Actions such as the Bush Administration cutting veteran’s benefits don’t count.

    And how many fewer photo ops like these would be possible if we hadn’t gone into Iraq? Chicken Hawk.

    Hey! If it wasn’t for false equivalencies, the right wing wouldn’t have any equivalencies at all!

    You could say the same for North Korea, parts of Somalia, Syria, etc., etc. My question is:
    “When is it time to have a people work out their problems themselves, as it doesn’t seem to be effective to impose solutions from outside?”

    I cannot cure the evil in the world, ignoring it keeps the stress levels down.

    I can cure the evil in my home, ignoring it would mean I was an evil as well.

    When all people hold all the world as their home….

    Hey, I’ll stand around all day with the men/women whom my policies disable as long as I don’t have to see anyone in my family go to the front. Why not put down the propaganda and try looking at how to stop our aggression world-wide in the first place?

    I don’t think it works that way. First, are you really sure that our way is the right way for everyone else? Is morality a uniform code? (The experts would say no.) There are many ways to skin a cat (morally). Second, I also consider that all humanity is my relation (biologists actually see this quite clearly), but I don’t think everyone wants someone else to butter their bread for them. (Please, Mother, I’d rather do that myself!) Third, as one who follows the Quaker philosophy, I cannot accept force as a useful tool. It is true that some Quakers volunteered in WW2 because of what they perceived as the evil of the Nazi aggression, but it should be the absolute last resort used only in the event of real immediate threat to our people, not as a mechanism for regime change.

    As a Vietnam vet, I qualify for VA medical benefits. They set me up with a series of appointments for tests and said I would hear from them. Then I received five containers of pharmaceuticals in the mail, drugs with horrific side effects which I immediately returned unopened. I just received a bill from the VA for over $400. As for the drugs, they tell me I can’t return them and they can’t stop sending them until the prescription runs out in 2 years.

    I don’t expect to be rewarded for serving my country. But I don’t expect to be punished either.

    In addition to the drugs, I was prescribed and issued glasses, which I have returned three times because they make my vision worse. But I have to pay for them anyway (not the glasses themselves but the eye doctor charges $50 per appointment).

    I will never go back to a VA hospital again.

    The US has never been much interested in helping the oppressed. Check out the history of the US in Central America, for instance — and in the post-WWII years, check out US policy in Iran or in Guatemala. Hey, the US was never much interested in helping out the oppressed in the US. Check out the history of lynching in the US.

    I know that is a reason many do reply, but really all you do in this case is encourage him to post even more stuff of less than stellar quality. You might be interested in this article that I just found about how and why people don’t really reason about political questions. It’s from Ezra Klein’s new site VOX:
    How politics makes us stupid (Ezra Klein, Vox)
    .
    As far as presenting reliable material, you can always do it without hitting the “Reply” button. ;-)

    Yes, photo op. The quantity of Bush’s photo ops with disabled vets and/or the dubious actions of his successor don’t change the cuts made during the Bush Administration.
