    the politics - not when children are being kicked out of head start and seniors are going without meals on wheels and families are getting kicked out of the food stamp program and so many of us are sick and uninsured.  We have our own problems right here right now.  Kids graduate from college and can't find work.  Household budgets are strained to the breaking point thanks to the idiots that are calling the shots right now.  I'm sick of being the police of the world and I'm sick of footing the bill, personally.  And I'm sick of not taking care of our own first.  If the rest of the world isn't on board with us, maybe we should rethink our position.  Why do we have to go it alone?  And should we?  I don't think so.  I don't care whose side that puts me on.

    The GOP will destroy anything they can't own.

      We are all over the globe with our military, the world's most expensive, front and center in every "global police force" action.

      Let's take a break, some time out, concentrate on the "homeland", and ending that 12 year long war in Afghanistan.

      As other countries are pulling out, we still have almost 70,000 troops. Let's get them home and get the hell out of Afghanistan.
