Ridiculous, not very many of us have been complaining about our lifestyles because we live in Houston and reap heavy rewards from the energy sector but, the cost of this war is going to be hard felt by the younger generations.

let me be clear about something...I do not mind heated GROWN UP debates on hot topics...when kids start doing childish instead of talking like a big boy then I will take it to a whole new nasty level. So if you people want to debate a topic of discussion with me save the childish gestures for someone else because I will call you out on it.

Had petheticans and civil rights activists kept their squeeky little mouth and hands out of it, we probably could have been done a long, long, long time ago. So do thank them next time you get a chance.

I would like to hear your reasoning on that... I have heard it from that point of view. (I'm really curious, and not trying to be an insinuator....)

Do I really need to explain the obvious. All it will do is stir up all the liberals and haters on the board. The ones that think will be ok in the world if we just mind our own business.

I work in the oil industry too and yea im not complaining I was just saying were in some deep and its gonna get worst.


And we haven't been at WAR since vietnam. we have been the police since vietnam on. if it was war civil liberties wouldn't matter a lick it would be see enemey and shoot. not wait to be fired on and then kill.:/:

too many problems enteracting with our gov. to blame one group or part. but they didn't make the process any quicker or easier.

wonder why politicians keep calling it a war then. this is the most exspensive police activity in history.

to keep people into it instead of turning against it. There is no official war doctrine stating who we are at war with. That is why bush keeps having to get more and more money approved to fund the "war"
