    McNerney dare not make these statements in public where someone might read the bill to him in front of witnesses.

    So, Lodi's Rep. is sending the troops home to Libya? I know there has been some confusion in the last several years of certain African states status within the United States, but the last I heard, NO African state qualifies as United States Sovereign Territory, although some areas may hold "sister city" relations with Hawaii.

    As for those war loving Republicans, they are not strong enough to fight to save the lives of those who will be terminated by Obamacare that are about to draw their pensions for the first time, and that body count will be higher than any Earthquake or Sana-mi. My hope is that our President will finally make some good judgments rather than making decisions consistently damaging America.

    I am amazed that Congress is OK with things like they are which is obvious by the vote! Oh I cannot help laughing - of course I expected this! I guess Republikans are OK with spending unlimited money on war. Thank the Lord they stood up to CLick and CLack though!! Freedom sure is expensive for us poor folk.
