      I know a way they can make up that $14B difference. Have Holder call a Big4 bank CEO and fine him that amount for things done wrong 8 yrs ago and already penalized for. ;)

      They sure are, but they still get the majority of their oil from the ME.
      SA is still #1 with Iran #3 on the top export countries to China. They get about 1/3 of their crude oil from African...

      Boring isn't nec a bad trait to have...maybe a calculated effort not to meddle in the affairs of nations half-way around the globe has allowed them to be free from ME radical Islam. I'll bet once...

      Nope, never said that. We sure are in the #1 spot on every single one of their target lists though.

      All 3 of those are very nice, yet all 3 are much more expensive to live in than the DC area. Greener pastures usually rely on a lot of green.

      Agreed. But I would like to know if the US would be a primary target of radical Islam...if the US didn't set up camp in their backyard? I believe there are 23 current US miltary installations in...

      2 of my childhood/HS/college friends have been USAF pilots for ~25 years each and both have considerable time in the ME (both war and peacetime) and both will tell you the US military presense on...

      Can be??

      To qualify for a new home loan on an "average" sales price house there (which is a 1500 sf fixer upper), you need 20% down (200K) and then roughly $6K/mo for PITI for a very good credit...

      If this is a primary concer, the city/state doesn't matter (too broad) as much as the neighborhood you live in and the schools associated with that neighborhood...specifically the income and...

      Making >$100K in salary in CLT as a IT PM (PMP cert) is easy. Now about owning waterfront property on Lake Norman (unless the northern part of the lake) on $100K...nope. ;)
      Anyone can tune out the...

      I ran into Marty Shottenheimer a year ago at a Lake Norman restaurant/dock bar and asked him what he's up to in this part of the woods. I find out he lives on Lake Norman year round and loves...

      In respect to "Charlotte" and politics - I disagree. Been here since '97, >50% of all my neighbors, friends and co-workers are northern transplants, Democrats make up ~half of the local political...

      See post 279.

      As for our ME foreign policy, it changes as the wind blows (friend one day, enemy the next) and is hypocritical in nature, although I understand why.

      I agree that we need to be involved and more times than not in a primary role, however whenever I hear the word coalition...I think 90% US troops and $ expenses, 10% everybody else.

      I am an American citizen and taxpayer residing in the US. How citizens within that country are governed is really none of my business.

      Th other variable not yet mentioned is: Honda.
      Maybe they want a driver shake-up for their F1 return and are willing to spend some $$ on a 4X WDC.
      All speculation at this point.

      You may be right, however how we handled Iraq post invasion...and the environment (for the US since) isn't any better than it was under his control.

      For your Iraq nuclear program scenario...I'd...
