    What exactly these 15 lives were lost for when Obama's puppet masters are also pursuing "peace talks" with Talibans in Qatar through the corrupt king Karzai and other dictator kings?

    My Congressman tweeted a speech he gave honoring a fallen soldier and I replied back stating we need to bring them home. He then called me out by saying it was tacky and poor form of me to invoke the soldier's death to make a political point.

    The next day he goes on to tweet "they deserve a vote" (referring to the Newtown tragedy) and I told him not to invoke the tragedy to make political points otherwise we should be having a discussion about Afghanistan and he blocked me on twitter right after.

    These politicians who only talk about Afghanistan when they get to show that they support the military by honoring the fallen really piss me off.
