1) I consider myself a pretty devout non-interventionist (I even opposed the first Iraq War - yeah, I was wrong). Like Mr.s Paul and Kucinich, I only think that we should act militarily when our own national security is at stake. But I'm telling you here, folks, if I were President and I had actionable intelligence, and I could take out that butcher, Bashar al Assad (he's starting to make his father look like a camp counselor), with a single missile, I'd do it. I'd do it and I'd feel about as guilty as I felt when I was a kid drowning ant colonies....with urine.............2) Nor would it bother me to be called a war criminal over it, either. Fuck China and fuck Russia, too.............3) Virtually all of the unions who would stand to benefit from the Keystone pipeline are now supporting it. Only groups like the SEIU and transport workers union are opposing the project (probably because Obama is opposing it). Hm, what do say that we score this sucker Environmental Lobby 1 the Working Stiff of America 0?............4) For a balanced examination of the Keystone XL pipeline, I strongly recommend "Five Myth About the Keystone XL Pipeline" by the Washington Post's Michael Levy. Forewarning - if you're a hard-core partisan on either side here, you're probably not going to like it. http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/five-myths-about-the-keystone-xl-pipeline/2011/12/19/gIQApUAX8P_story_1.html.............5) It's up to 98 now, the number of major sponsors who've said sayonara to Rush. Wow, huh? I mean, I don't know, if I HAD TO guess right now, I'd sat that the scrimey ends up on satellite, maybe pay-per-view....He's just too toxic for anything else, essentially.
