    about folks who say it for fear of being labeled unpatriotic.

    i just want to mention that not everyone says it reflexively or meaninglessly or out of fear.

    Politics is like driving. To go backward, put it in R. To go forward, put it in D.

      But I swear, if one more congresscritter starts what should be an adversarial investigation or questioning of anyone in Intel, or the DOD, with that mantra, I will throw something at the CSpin Channel.  Congress is there to ask hard questions. They represent the American people. They MUST do the heavy lifting.

      Mind you, for 8 yrs, none of the heavy lifting took place, not even over the last two years. Hard to do it when your leader takes things off the table, tho.

      What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.
