Wondering what the counter is there for? I thought this was a fishiing site! Deleting my profile now, don't need this stuff. Good fishing to all!

The counter is a fact.  Since when do we Americans, not want to know the facts?

Counter is fine with me.

I don't mind the counter, but I would like to see it speed up some. As a tax payer I like to see my dollars at work. I would rather spend the money now than pass this problem on to the next generation.

I would accept a tax increase if was going to wards the war effort, but I would like to see a few rules of engagement changed, to give our troops the advantage they need.

I would rather my money go to rebuild religious relics, than spend it on more troops and logistics, only to have these insurgents take shelter in a mosque, and kill our soldiers indiscriminately. Whats the cost of a building compared to an American soldier? Destroy the buildings and those in them would be my doctrine.

I would rather support a general who practiced the same tactics as General Sherman, who knew how to fight a war, and drain the enemies desire to continue.

Sherman knew all to well, the horrors of war, but more importantly he knew how to end them.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.
