It would have been nice to figure out how they could have separated out the good parts from that bad.
the article wrote:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, (D-Nev.), said it was important to speed the military’s growth without letting recruiting standards slip. Presently, he said, “We’re taking people into the military that we never dreamed of taking in a few years ago,” including some with criminal records.

The legislation includes a 3.5 percent pay raise for the military. In response to complaints, it enhances veterans’ health care, expanding treatment for brain injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder, and assuring speedy mental health evaluations.

I think congress has given up on using budgetary legislations as a way to control the war. They probably figure that it doesn't make that much sense now.

So, they accept the war spending as part and parcel with their omnibus appropriations bill where they shove-in a whole bunch of earmarks for the favor of each of their constituents.

All of the leading candidates are endorsing perpetual war.

How can we endorse any of them?

Why should we?

No, that is not true. This is the sort of general statement which contributes to the degrading simplification of our political discourse.

When you say, "All of the leading candidates are endorsing perpetual war", you are mainly talking about the REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES!

Let's not engage in such disingenuous generalities, as if the Democrats are just as bad. I've had it with that sleight of hand tactic.

No more shell games. If you have a point to make in this regard about specific candidates of either party, then make it.

No more generalizing in order to make it seem that both parties are equally guilty, because you know it isn't true.
