I dont want to live with ISIS: I want to kill it. My policy is that when threatened with death I take the threat at their word. Its like the saying at the French zoo: This animal is wicked. When it is attacked, it defends itself.

Heres a good idea: Have your messiah present a plan to Congress that balances the budget, right now, not after the passage of time and some mythical increase in GDP created by voodoo tax increases on everyone.
