    We can debate the action in Iraq, but that has nothing to do with Chris Kyle who was obeying lawful orders.

    Get a grip, as I said previously, it's not paying taxes that is wrong, it is excessive and disproportionate treatment in the tax code, singling out a minority to pay the majority of the bill. For no...

    To Deena, not that it is your business, but I do not have kids. I Have been happily paying property tax for 28 years supporting the school system. I'm happy to do it...those kids are the future. ...
