    Rand Paul is exactly right. The U.S. should immediately cease funding the Israeli war machine. The U.S. is 14 trillion in debt and we should not be borrowing money from China in order to send it to Israel. And we should stop blindly supporting Israel; maybe it would be different if our money bought one iota of influence with israel- it doesn't. We can't even get them to stop building settlements on occupied territory - a clear violation of the 4th Geneva Convention. All the world knows that Israel just wants the land, the religious sites and that there is no plan to allow the state of Palestine to come into existence. Shame on you, Israel, get your boot heel off the collective necks of the Palestinian people. And everyone knows that the U.S. is the "enabler"; we give Israel money and weapons and political cover at the UN. Question: is all the world wrong about Israel? I don't think so; the U.S. is wrong for allowing Israel to behave like a small, spoiled child.

This Valentine's day, celebrate not love, but the sublime bond of friendship

Friendship is free of the indignities, suffering and drama that characterize romantic love; it doesn't have an expiration date; we rarely suspect it to be a figment of our imagination. But love is what fuels our economy.
