How old fashioned.
33 lawmakers: Congress must approve Syria action. the fact that it's only 33 out of 535 tells you all you need to know. My attitude was expressed in line yesterday at Lowes while I was getting the stuff to fix my A/C. The subject came up in conversation between two customers behind me, neither of whom thought this could end well. I turned and said, "Well, as the father of a soldier who did three tours of Iraq and one in Afghanistan -- and two daughters of military age -- I think that if backing our existential enemies the Jihadis in Syria is what Obama wants to do, let him send HIS daughters this time. Hell, they've got child soldiers in Africa, don't they? Let them fight and leave the rest of us alone. Let's see how he feels when HE'S got skin in the game." One of the customers said, "Damn right!" and the rest nodded their heads.
