    Our debate over torture reminds me of the Obama era idiotic "rules of engagement". DO NOT enter a war with self imposed handicaps. What actually takes place is, and should always be a case-by-case military decision. The key word is "military". They are living it in the present.
    McCain, Pelosi, and the rest need to STFU.

    When their only means of fighting Trump is the usual "racism, sexism, anti-homo, etc." it means that they really don't have a principled reason for any of their complaints or objections.
