Librul you were on a roll until you hit the STOP regarding social movements, primarily welfare programs....My opinion is:
Social movements advanced under the banners of equality, brotherhood and sustainabliity are "socialist agendas".
Assure an education is obtained and an opportunity available is the right agenda.
Know when to hold'em, know when to fold'em, Go all in or all out. aggressively wipe out all terrorist group doing whatever it takes without trying to avoid collateral damage. Or, get totally out of the quagmire and let them take each other out until there is a country with which to go to war. Collateral damage in a wipe them out strategy would not likely be any greater than what terrorist groups will do.
My preference would be 100% out of the middle east and north Africa plus most of the 105 military bases around the world. No involvement and no arms or financial aid. Use the funds to assure a strong and ready military to protect the U.S. and provide the resources necessary to establish secure borders.
Should we declare war with ISIS let's hope there is more success than seen with the war on drugs, war on poverty, war on obesity, war on illiteracy....mmmmmm is there even one war where there is evidence of a win or measureable progress? Perhaps if we selected one and devoted the necessary resources the results may be better.
You all need to read CJ Werleman's "Why ISIS Can't Be Defeated"
Ki, no doubt you agree with him. From whence does his expertise come? Does he make a logical viable recommendation about what the right course of action would be?
Not to change the story, but ESPN says less than 1% of abusers in NJ got the same deal as Rice:
What words would you use to change the story or go off topic?

He has a league of his own which is experiencing a lot of drop outs.
Barney is putting the one bullet Andy gave him in the gun. Once he fires it and does his tough talk routine all hell may break loose.
Press conference...My fellow Americans, we are not at war I am just going to poke the hornets nest a few times and stir them up and see what happens. I will request funding from congress but I will not ask them to debate and vote on whether or not to declare war this close to an election. I will monitor the situation closely by watching CNN news and take prompt and measured action based on polls and public opinion. May God bless and protect America while I am fund raising, campaigning and working on my social agenda.
conservative said...My statement is quite clear, your question is not.
The question is; Does your statement that many NFL players would be hoodlums etc. if they weren't playing in the NFL mean that it is a good thing the NFL exist to prevent them from being hoodlums?
conservative said.....You could not be more wrong, I wrote:
I have believed and said for years that if it was not for football many NFL players would be in prison or jail.
If your belief is true then it the NFL is a good thing to have exist, is that your point?
Why would Rice not have the same due process rights as every other spouse abuser? He did hit his wife to be when both were drinking and acting like drunks act. Why is he not in the court system which is separate from league rules and by-laws which may carry a penalty if violated but the league is not authorized to prosecute outside the courts.
She got the crap knocked out of her and now people want to hit her again by not allowing her spouse to support her in the life style to which she has become accustomed. Why is no one advocating an investigation for prior instances and both of them being obligated to many hours of community service and mandatory counseling? Any penalty Rice receives also penalizes the wife.
