Should Obama be doing anything different NOW? - BigJim

Seeking Congressional approval smart political move by Obama - BigJim
but it shows a true lack of leadership. If he really thought this was a big deal AND was planning on limited strikes; he should have done it already. Instead by punting to Congress he diminishes the military and diplomatic value of the strike. But by doing so he either gets to share the blame...

Feds should tax refund checks - BigJim
I don't think it is fair that some people get refunds while others are having to pay taxes. Rather than cutting our military or slashing grandma's health benefits, we ought to tax refund checks. Another plus is that it should hit all those 1% people whose use tons of accountants to dodge taxes...
