Dyadic thinking will be the death of humanity.
There is never "just two" options in a complex situation.
There are just people whose maximum capacity for thought is two things.

You realize that the Islamic Empire already exists, and you never hate on their actual existant Empire?
They know that they are an Empire. It is referenced in some of their books about Islamic jurisprudence.
I will gladly back an attack on Iran if they don't get off it. The impact of proliferation and terror caused by their goals is unacceptable.edit on 2012/1/19 by Aeons because: (no reason given)

I have never understood why people label the U.S. as the bad guy as another country like Iran goes and throws out Nuclear Inspectors checking out tech the Iranians were sold and could not make on their own.
IMO…It’s because they hate America so much they blame America first. They justify every wrong-doing around the world by saying it’s America’s fault. It’s a SICK and naïve way of thinking, and devoid of all logic. They choose to be intellectually dishonest to further their sick agenda. Little do they know (because they’re dumb) they would bring about their own (our) demise if they called the shots!
They will sit back and talk smack about the injustices of the world and how America is to blame until we are finally dead. Pacifism KILLS!

It annoys the hell out of me when easily led, brainwashed people

I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground: That "all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States or to the people." To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition. - Thomas Jefferson

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. – Benjamin Franklin

Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none. – Thomas Jefferson
one has to ask... when did we let jobs go over seas, and why are some of our defense contractors getting imports and not making them here?
A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government. – Thomas Jefferson
hay wall street this one is for you, PS could I get a loan?
If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. – Samuel Adams
this one could be for the obama care, what do you all think?
To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical. – Thomas Jefferson
sadly this does not fit into today's world, the world is sick of US intervention, so world it is time for you to stand by your self or fall
America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She well knows that by enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standards of freedom. – John Quincy Adams
well we tried to do just that but FDR for better or worse did not heed your words come to think of it neither did Woodrow Wilson come to think of it NATO comes to mind
I have ever deemed it fundamental for the United States never to take active part in the quarrels of Europe. Their political interests are entirely distinct from ours. Their mutual jealousies, their balance of power, their complicated alliances, their forms and principles of government, are all foreign to us. They are nations of eternal war. – Thomas Jefferson
well this one falls to the way side by the selective service act, by the ad on the radio it is a live and well today
Where is it written in the Constitution, in what section or clause is it contained, that you may take children from their parents and parents from their children, and compel them to fight the battle in any war in which the folly or the wickedness of government may engage it?-Daniel Webster
oh yes an other FDR big hit the SS act or social security act to give them that retire a ... oh nope that's not it, it is for the GOV, a big piggy bank to dip in when needed I do hope you have enjoyed some history with as I see it today, as they are applied in today's world
I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. – Thomas Jefferson
