This is why I love politicians. They always say genius things when most appropriate.
"AW MAN I LOVE ME SOME IRAQ WAR!"
He claims he would make the same decision, to send our troops to Iraq, if ever necessary to for a second time.
According to Wikipedia, 4,378 US Soldiers have died in Iraq. 31,639 US Soldiers have been wounded. Is that really something to support? Maybe that's not as bad as WWII, but this isn't a World War, this is a war fought mainly in middle eastern countries.
It may have saved Iraqi citizens, but we have to watch out for ourselves. We are still in debt, people are still struggling to support their families, and our economy is still in the crap hole.
Imagine how much money we could be saving by not investing in another country's freedom. Maybe we could save more money by investing a lot less into another countries freedom. The economy is trying to rise, and I'm all for helping other countries, but maybe we should be greedy for a while and help ourselves prosper before our economy craps out again.

You should check out the Youtube channel called "RappinHappenFineTime".
In other news, there is a new Apple "iPad". It's super great right?
It's like a very large iPod Touch.
But isn't it supposed to be like a touch screen laptop?
I looked over the technical specifications of the iPad, and it doesn't even have any USB ports. Only ports that will connect from the iPad to your computer.It doesn't even have any of Apples' famous Firewire ports.
"The large Multi-Touch screen on iPad lets you see web pages as they were meant to be seen — one page at a time." - Apples' Website
Is that saying it is superior to the iPod Touch or iPhone? Just because it's bigger so you get a better resolution on safari?
And there are only a few new, unnecessary features with the iPad.
But, it could be more cost effective, assuming you'll keep either the iPhone or iPad for a year or two.
You could buy the iPhone 3GS for $199 and pay the AT@T Plan, which I believe is $30 a month. (?)
Or, you could get the iPad for $499 and not pay for an AT@T plan. But that means you can't get on the internet unless you're near a Wifi Hotspot.
Getting the iPod Touch may be more worth it, because either way you're getting internet only near wifi, and paying a couple hundred dollars less, AND you're getting an identical product.
