Default Obama doesn't like proactive congress...

Have you noticed how Obama is trying to stop a procative congress when it comes to Iran and the nuclear bomb. I figure this is the way government should work. Let Obama and Kerry do the diplomacy and let Congress weild the big stick. Obama wants to wait while the Iranians continue to work away.
The Congress is letting both Obama and the Iranians know that there are going to be severe reprecussions when and if the Iranians say the treaty is no good and they want to negotiate another treaty.

If you disagree that congress is not being proactive concerning Iran than state your case. Don't just throw out a one liner like Obama to get audience attention and credit for an email on your editorial account.

Don't just throw out cheap one-liners, Manuel. Please make a reasoned, documented case that Congress no longer exists.


I don't use smiley faces, but please infer a grin.

I am so sorry that my comment dis-pleased you.


A person can always be wrong bur I do believe that I do a right to my opinion.
Since we are not in school I also believe that we are not going to be graded on our writing expertize.


Lets just say that congress may exist but if they all resigned, we would be better off.


An may I politely say that yes you do have the right to my opinion.

Or you could simply create several board identities and post multiple opinions supporting your position

Manuel--Please re-read the WHOLE string, especially the post from gladiatrix. I think you may have missed my meaning.


Kuki--Do people really DO that? HERE?

Yes I could, but I have no desire to express multiple opinions.

Oddly,yes.. Sometimes up to 6 identities

I've really never figured out why people would do that. Perhaps to support positions, or perhaps to make a thread seem more active. Don't know!

I would simply get confused in the process of choosing which person was going to be posting when.

Too funny!!


Reminds me of the time years ago that I was in the checkout line at a bookstore. At the counter they had a display of a paperback book called Overcoming Schizophrenia. I said to the kid at the counter, "I'll take two of these." He looked at me blankly, had no idea what I was talking about. Meanwhile, the guy behind me absolutely cracked up. Between guffaws, he said, "I'm a shrink."


True story. Apologies to the purists if it's off topic.

AR...

I used to use a certain one-liner, but it also went over the heads of most people...

"Someone once told me that my behavior shows a sociopathic tendency - I told him, 'frankly, I couldn't care less."

Actually, you can use all of the psychographic diagnoses:

"Someone once told me I have a narcissistic personality disorder, so I said "tell more things about me."

"Someone told me I have histrionic personality disorder, so I took 50 Tylenol and dialed 911."

There I got you started - I guessing you can't resist coming up with a few of your own.

How about. . .


Roses are red
Violets are blue
I'm schizophrenic
And so am I
