    I think we can all agree that a 17 trillion dollar deficit needs to be addressed. And I think we can all agree that 85 billion is a drop in the bucket. Stop all the whining

    good news is that thousands of Jews and other thinking Americans are gathering there too to tell the Congress that this lobby doesn't speak for them.

    Good Morning saywhat

    Some encouraging news I saw yesterday says Netanyahu is having trouble forming a coalition of likeminded war mongers, The younger genearation seems to be replacing the old gaurd with a more moderate stance. Hopefully this translates to a more level headed approach to their problems. Negotiations first before war.

    Doing something about spending cuts? It's not in their realm.
