Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.

What we would do? Well border agents backed up by dept. of homeland security would be on that missile the second it hit the ground. Because instead of a nuclear payload it had 75 fellers that wanted to pick apples. “We” would then provide them with drivers’ licensees, health care, and a free telephone. Then transport them to a sanctuary city they choose.

And I will make you a great nation (Isreal), And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed." (Genesis 12:2-3)

Why not make Isreal the 51st state? We send major tax money there and we have vowed to defend it as jealously as our own territory. Let's annex the place.
I don't want to feed an ugly dog!
Yeah Israel is the only country we send tax payer's money to help support isn't it? It amazes me the number of Israel haters out there.
It's more like anti American. The left is so concerned about how much tax money is sent to a friendly nation like Israel, but seldom complains about the billions being sent to the muslims.
And, of course, a lefty like Sarge pays so much income tax, he should have a say in where it should be spent.
When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.

Headlines in the NY Times this AM:
How does this read: Hamas dumps rockets on Israel. (Some speculate that they have acquired longer-range rockets from Iran.) Israel responds. Hamas then squeals about how unfair that is, and looks to its big brothers to help them out.An Outgunned Hamas Tries to Tap Islamists' Growing Clout
By DAVID D. KIRKPATRICK and MAYY EL SHEIKH
As Israel and Hamas met separately with Egyptian officials for indirect talks about a truce in the ongoing Gaza fight, Hamas seemed to be trying to exert its sway over ideological allies in Egypt's government.
Then the next headline:
Brigades That Fire on Israel Are Showing a New Discipline
By JODI RUDOREN
As many as 15,000 Qassam fighters are responsible for most of the rocket blitzes that have blanketed southern Israel in recent days, experts say.
