Skip to comments.Americans Would Rather Get a Root Canal or a Colonoscopy than Launch War Against Syria

We noted last month than Congress is less popular than North Korea, cockroaches, lice, root canals, colonoscopies, traffic jams, used car salesmen, Genghis Khan, Communism, BP during the Gulf oil spill, Nixon during Watergate or King George during the American Revolution.
The Washington Post notes today that a Syria intervention is less popular than Congress. So that means that the American people would much rather get a root canal or a colonoscopy than bomb Syria.
Indeed, while John Kerry announced today that the Syrian government used chemical weapons, Reuters noted:
The polls suggest that so far, the growing crisis in Syria, and the emotionally wrenching pictures from an alleged chemical attack in a Damascus suburb this week, may actually be hardening many Americans resolve not to get involved in another conflict in the Middle East.
The bottom line is that Americans are sick of war.
Courage Freepers ...
Market doing its pre decision drop this AM, seems to indicate they believe the traitor will sink the entire world into hell.
"Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent
International Commission of Inquiry on Syria,
told Swiss TV there were strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof, that rebels
seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad
had used the nerve agent."
So now there is proof that the undocumented pRes_ _ent
has given al Qaeda MANPADs, Fast&Furious weapons,
SAMs, open borders, legal support of the DO"J",
coverups to allow the Boston Atrocity, and now WMD.
What is next??? nukes?
I’ve had two root canals and a colonoscopy.
I concur that I would rather go through either again.
get it while you can. it probably won’t be an option under Bammycare.
... with gold and oil shooting through the roof and the commodities markets overwhelmed to the point of shutting down ... you might say that!
YES ! Americans are sick of war but I wouldn’t say I’d wouldn’t rather have a colonoscopy. I’ve had 2 in the past 11 years and there has absolutely been no pain whatsoever so don’t believe the horror stories.
The only unexplainable side effect was that I craved for a cigarette after both procedures and hadn’t smoked in over 30 years...and yes, I’m a breeder not a sodomite.
But I'd agree to have a root canal AND a colonoscopy at the same time if it would stop that cowardly a$$hole from launching another war in the Middle East and putting the lives more of our nation's finest young men and women in peril, just to support his muslim "brotherhood" buddies.
It ought to be illegal to mention “John Kerry” and “colonoscopy” in the same sentence.
This will be a chosen political war for the aggrandizement of Obama’s political with no commitment to victory. This would be a distraction from the Obamacare vote upcoming. All eyes will move the movie of the week where we watch a ‘shock and awe’ fireworks display with no time to examine the budget coming up to fund obamacare. Same-ole-same-ole,
I’ve had both, and neither was that big a deal.
That said... NO EFFING WAR IN SYRIA!
And you watch...once again, as with the ballouts and the takeover of healthcare, our “elected to serve” dictators will not give two flea’s butts on a dog what the American people think.
The only bad thing is the foreplay the night before.
Not to worry, the universe will call on Bill O'Reily to say the market is fine and that everyone wants to get in on the Syrian conflict right before they bomb. Just another day in the controlled collective....hohum.
Yep I had one every six months for two years now I get one every year. Had cancer six years ago.no big deal with me.
Look how long we have been involved in their conflicts!
Heck, our troops are still in Afghanistan and Iraq. We need to bring our troops home! We need them here as our constitution demands.
And are we going to fall for the "chemical weapons" trap again? Last time the world swore there WAS NONE IN IRAQ.
Doesn’t matter what we want.
We don’t want Obamacare, we don’t want high taxes, we don’t want more debt, we don’t want more illegals nor in state tuition.
We get what this idiot Muslim and his Traitor Secretary of State want.
The Congress is as useless as a sea nettle.
Barry getting ready to stomp in a BIG OL’ DOGPILE here...
Obama needs to shore-up his manhood.
Speak for yourself jackass!!!
I’m finishing the clean out drink this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Or watch Miley Cyrus "twerk".
And yet all those things are much preferred to whittling down one's lifestyle and income in order to force the government to behave as it should.
Especially the King George thing. It appears that even conservatives, today, would tolerate his reign, indeed support it gratefully. Because what the government is doing today is far, far worse, and nearly every professing conservative is consistently sending his hard-earned money to it.
If you did that in Revolutionary days -- if you sent a large part of your income to the tyrant king, and fed his locusts -- you'd have been shot. The other George (Father of His Country) would have endorsed your execution and spit on your grave.
Starve the beast. It's the right thing to do.
