"The Senate overwhelmingly agreed on Monday night to nudge President Donald Trump to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a campaign promise that he punted on last week.

The Senate voted 90-0 on a resolution marking the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem's reunification. The measure includes language that "calls upon the president and all United States officials to abide by" a 1995 law that urged then-President Bill Clinton to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem."

“Due to this resolution’s overly narrow scope and politicized nature, and because it calls for unacceptable limits on the fundamental freedom of expression the United States cannot support it,” the U.S. mission said in a statement. That, and we just elected a fascist president.

This is utterly unconscionable.   Washington doesn't give a damn about the people they are supposedly elected to represent.

Obscene.



 
"all courtesy of the Afghan government"——No sweat off Washington(I hestitate to say "us" as I feel Washington has NOTHING to do with me).

 IMO we shouldn't be in Afghanistan anyway and if we are going to mess with it we should make it flat first, that'll take care of that nasty"uninvadable" thing.

Hey, you are ex-lawdog, right? And looking for a new direction in life, as I recall... How about coming down here to Arizona and being a Vigilante in the Old West?

This general sentiment you have expressed is why I always question those who espouse broad and amorphous principles like "I don't support Big Government."

One person's worthy government expenditure is another person's example of wasteful spending.

Somewhat the same thing happens when folk talk about State Rights.  For some, that's a big yes when it comes to, say, abortion laws, but a big no when it comes to, say, same-sex marriage. 

Principles are valid if they are applied consistently, across the board.  Talking in the abstract usually is not helpful.  The devil is in the details, so that is where the discussion must focus — specifics.

When drowning in red ink, make cuts that will not impact WE THE PEOPLE.
The UN has 192 Member States and the tab picked up by The US is 22% of the total operating budget. Now, that makes sense? The UN is a fanciful notion where corruption runs rampant, feel good resolutions are ignored and promises made are regularly violated. Some years back, The US was booted from The UN Human Right's Commission, to be replaced by Sudan, home of Darfur...

One can always find an excuse to protect this or that against budget cuts...it would appear you found a rat hole to protect.

We are bleeding red ink...cuts can be made or taxes jacked. Pick one...
