    Fucking ignorant people!

    Two days ago I said the Republicans wanted war with Iran.

    Bibi reneges on the Palestinians, falsifies Iran's nuclear capabilities, and interferes with American politics. Meanwhile Republicans are seeking MORE money for the Defense Dept.

    All this will do is create more recruits for ISIS.

    oops forgot link!

    I would much rather bomb Moscow, Russia and take out that hateful, vicious fascist Vladimir Putin and all his Russian Orthodox cronies and sycophants.

    Gohmert is stupid, not dumb.

    Here's the 1st paragraph from the article.

    "During an appearance on yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, told host Tony Perkins that “we need to encourage this administration to go take out Iran’s nuclear capability” instead of pursuing negotiations: “I think it’s time to bomb Iran."

    Washington Watch Radio is for fundamentalists. Tony Perkins is a famous 1st class liar for Jesus. Gohmert was speaking to THAT audience telling them what they wanted to hear in order to get their broader support just like Prez Obama has done many times.

    Dumb is another subject. Here's some examples.

    *Muslim leaders banned long range space travel because there's no way to pray towards Mecca from space. Unbelievable? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/02/20/mars-fatwa_n_4823059.html

    If too many people get on one side of an island it may capsize into the sea. Unbelievable? Meet the dumbest Congressman ever born. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cesSRfXqS1Q

    Dumb and stupid are synonymous:
    North Americaninformal
    stupid.
    "a dumb question"
    synonyms: stupid, unintelligent, ignorant, dense, brainless, mindless, foolish, slow, dull, simple, empty-headed, stunned, vacuous, vapid, idiotic, half-baked, imbecilic, bovine; More


    If someone intentionally, like Gohmert, incites WAR for no other reason than for his aggrandizement or $$$ that is DUMB and STUPID. That "he was speaking to THAT audience telling them what they wanted to hear" is no excuse. "... in order to get their broader support just like Prez Obama has done many times."
    That's quite a stretch! Obama is trying for PEACE and negotiations.

    Has Obama been a pawn of the "Military Complex" Eisenhower warned us about? Yes, absolutely....as has every President since at least WWII.
    "President Barack Obama is losing some of the control over the defense budget that his administration clawed away from top military commanders early in his presidency, with the service chiefs and Congress once again openly conspiring to undo tough spending decisions made by the White House and the Pentagon."

    Stupid is giving away HUGE sums of money to people who fight against PEACE, like Bibi.

    Since 1949 the U.S. has given Israel a total of $83.205 billion. The interest costs borne by U.S. tax payers on behalf of Israel are $49.937 billion, thus making the total amount of aid given to Israel since 1949 $133.132 billion. This may mean that the U.S. government has given more federal aid to the average Israeli citizen in a given year than it has given to the average American citizen.



    But apparently Israel is feeling used by taking our money:

    "An increasing number of Israelis are pointing out" that these funds are not in Israel's best interest. Quoting Peled, Zunes said, "this aid pushes Israel 'toward a posture of callous intransigence' in terms of the peace process." Moreover, for every dollar the U.S. sends in arms aid, Israel must spend two to three dollars to train people to use the weaponry, to buy parts, and in other ways make use of the aid. Even "main-stream Israeli economists are saying [it] is very harmful to the country's future."

    http://www.wrmea.org/congress-u.s.-aid-to-israel/u.s.-financial-aid-to-israel-figures-facts-and-impact.html

    That was in 2001. Lately it seems to me that Bib wants to be the Jewish John Wayne. He no longer has a problem with intransigence. And has backed away from the peace process.

    "In the fall of 1993-when many had high hopes for peace-78 senators wrote to former President Bill Clinton insisting that aid to Israel remain "at current levels." Their "only reason" was the "massive procurement of sophisticated arms by Arab states." The letter neglected to mention that 80 percent of those arms to Arab countries came from the U.S. ...."

    Clearly the only people who are interested in promoting War are the munitions industry (since businesses are a people too now, it's not an absurd statement [a statement I don't agree with!]).

    I've often heard this given erroneously as the definition of insanity, but isn't one definition of dumb or stupid lacking the capacity to learn?

    Seems like not learning from past mistakes is the problem here. How many countries have we bombed because they didn't do things the way we want them to, and how many of those did we leave in chaos?
