    Can we limit Congress on voting their own pay raises this way?

    And can the cartoonist learn the difference between “cooperating in a group NATO mission” and “unilateral war?”

    Um, I believe you forgotten the most important condition, Mr. Bolling. That is, to wage war, the President ***must*** lead the charge.

    Actually, I think this is a commentary on the laws designed to prevent women from getting abortions: must travel out of state, must watch a sonogram and/or hear a description of an embryo or fetus at that stage of development, may not use federal funds.

    Oh yeah, the waiting period laws as well.

    See, this isn’t really a comment on the war, guys. It’s a comment on how difficult it is to get an abortion. Because the war procedure on OtherEarth is the same as the abortion procedure here. /Explained

    Thanks, Ironman92. I was wondering when somebody was going to point out what seemed obvious.

    Well, it is an interesting contrast between how hard it is for one (1) woman to have an abortion versus how relatively easy it is for one (1) President to commit the military to, well… war, or whatever newspeak phrase he uses to call the governmental act of hurting people and breaking things.

    The problem is that if the restraints on war making seem reasonable, then maybe the roadblocks to abortion aren’t so bad. No federal funds for war, a cooling off period, looking at the consequences of the planned action. It’s a great piece of satire but it really does work both ways.

    but see, forcing the president to have a 72-hour waiting period before starting a war would be patronizing because men carefully and rationally think through all actions before making them. women, on the other hand, are prone to abort children on a whim if they haven’t had enough chocolate that day, missed a shoe sale, etc.

    *prone to aborting (?)

    “Lean forward”? Can MS-NBC really believe their new catch-phrase will deflect attention from how far they lean Left?
