  1. Doug Bandow brings up McCain…
    McCain and his mouthpieces like to brag that ‘he (McCain) knows how to win wars’…
    This is never challenged by the press or by writers. Just which war did John McCain win? Name one. Viet Nam? He must be delusional.
    Even his namesake father, Admiral McCain had to capitulate to the Israelis when they deliberately attacked the Liberty in 1967 and supervised President Johnson’s order to cover-up a blatant act of war.
    If we need a president who ‘wins wars’ lets dig up Reagan and his shrunken brain…he ‘won’ in Grenada.

  2. “mccain married a rich whore who financed his entire career what is so special about that.”

    would that not make mc cain the whore… i guess we could compromise (as mc cain so loves to claim)

    two whores to run a government of whores

    no offense to any one who has an honest job providing sexual interactions

  3. Everybody please Email Senators asking them to vote No to Resolution 580 (the same as 362 in Congress) because it´s virtually a Declaration of War as Congressman Ron Paul stated.

    Peace & All the best
