    Interesting that they wait until after Labor day to start the sell on the next war or anything else for that matter. It looks like the potus is doing a good job on the sells side and I’m sure they will all fall in line but the very few and vote yes with no oversight to were it might end. Yep plenty money for wars but nothing for Head Start, Meals on Wheels and so many other Main Street safety net items. I’m sure it’s just a little oversight and they will come back later and fix it;)

  2. We just might luck out here.

    The Senate resolution limits the action to 60 days and prohibits boots on the ground.

    Various House and Senate Republicans have said that they won’t vote for this unless it allows for boots on the ground and a full-scale effort to topple Assad.

    Fingers crossed.

      Well, I have written.

      Rachel seems to think it’s going down. It would be nice, even though it will inevitably trigger the spate of “Obama is finished” stories from our propaganda sheets.
