    Why the drivel about jobs from the trolls? Since Obama’s stimulus, unemployment has been consistently going down. 1.8 million jobs were created in 2012. In 2008-2009, we lost 8 million. And the GOP-invented sequester will cause us to lose an estimated 1.8 million. If you want jobs, you need Obama’s policies, not Eric Cantor’s.

    Well, all the trolls can do is “drivel” since they can’t use any of the “politically incorrect” words that they would want to use. A little “reading between the lines” shows me that this theory is correct.

    Here’s a radical concept. Cut the military spending back to where Clinton left it in 2000. Bring home all the troops all over the world. If anyone “has to have” our military there for protection of their freedoms or internal security, have them pay for it. Take that military money and pour it into government grants to medical research in our universities and industries.


    I don’t think it would take long before we would regain our previous position in the world as the innovator (and supplier) of scientific and medical technology. Just a thought from a hater of war and a citizen that loves my country and believes in our capabilities.

    All these rightwing nutjobs just don’t get it and never will, the wackydoodles rule the comments. They profess saintly ideaology but express closed mind trash.

    That study does exist. I read it a few months back. The 98% number has been taken out of context ever since the study came out. It results from only 2% of drone casualties being top echelon Al-Queda and Taliban as being a part of the casualties. Certain sections of the media jumped on this and said the rest were civilians. Another problem in getting accurate numbers is the U. S. policy of paying family members for dead civilians which may have been Al-Qaeda. Stanford/NYU report, “Living Under Drones”, details the difficulty of getting accurate numbers.(This report is 45 pages long, a little dry but interesting). It covers much more than just numbers. It goes into International Law, Humanitarian Aspects, Culture, etc.The report list three sources for strike data compilation: “The Long War Journal”, “New America Foundation”, and “The Bureau of Investigative Journalism”. Since Stanford and NYU use those as sources for some of their information, my presumption is that they are credible.

    But……but…..but….. those are even somewhat liberal ideas! All of the ultra conservatives on here would condemn you (along with the likes of Rush Limbaugh and company over at FOX) as some kind of a Communist (just as some have dome myself in the past).

    I sense a kindred spirit in you, as like myself you seem to be an optimistic technocrat!

    That NOVA show about drones ran a couple of more times on PBS. I highly reccommend the show.

    @Robert Landers

    Thank you. As I posted before, I’m a Libertarian but I do believe that technocrats would be an invaluable part of our government process if they could come without a partisan influence held over them. BTW, I can’t stand most cable, Fox, MSNBC, even CNN. Too much non-nonsensical screaming and opinion, very few facts. I listen to PBS, watch BBC, and read the wall street journal minus the opinion page. I do watch Bloomberg and CNBC because I’m in finance and accounting.

    I did not say they were the same. It’s an enemy of my enemy thing. They are linked.

    “WE meed to have a stable growing economy or those soldiers will just come back to unemployment.”


    With a choice between paying for the military or paying the returning soldiers unemployment, retraining/re-education grants, I’d support the latter. If we wait until we have a more vibrant economy as it is going today it’ll take forever and we’ll continue to waste billions on the military instead of redirecting that money to civilian purposes that will participate in growth.
