Through out the history of our nation, since it?s founding in the fire of revolution in 1776, we have spent more time at war through either actual fighting or in proxy wars, than we have at peace.
We have fought wars against almost every major European power, including ones who are now our allies, such as Britain, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, as well as nations that are still not so friendly such as Russia.

Obama seems to be plagued these days with administration picks with tax problems. While it means that the vetting process his team is doing needs some fine tuning, it begs the question? what are the odds that 3 of the people he has chosen out of the Washington elite have tax problems. It makes me wonder wonder how wide spread tax issues are among our law makers on both sides of the political isle.
