: The Question: Would you be willing to pay higher federal income taxes so guys like me wouldn't have to spend over 200 days in the middle east, fly home, and find out I'm being shipped RIGHT BACK OUT THERE in like a couple weeks? i.e. would you pay more to execute this war on terror we're currently fighting on the cheep?

GEEZ! I thought that we won that damned war already, and killed the gosh darn sons of Saddam.

Why does violence seem to beget violence? I would pay 90% of my income if it guaranteed world peace. As it stands, I pay 38% of my 16,000 a year income, and now the government feels that I make to much this year (as opposed to 13,000 I made last year) to warrant them helping out with my classes which run me $1650/semester before books. So, I guess what I am saying is;

I could have made an educated response to your dichotemic line of borderline rhetorical questions, except that I cannot even afford an educated opinion right now. Would you be willing to pay more taxes on your income if it meant that I could answer in a year or so?

: Or maybe you reject the assumption we need to be there at all. Fire away, I'll be on for another 30 minutes
