      A new Military Times survey finds that fewer American troops identify as Republicans.

      According to the survey of 1,800 troops released on Monday, the number of active service members self-identifying as Republican has fallen by one-third since 2004, with 9 percent of that drop-off occurring in the last year.

      Military Times reporter Brendan McGarry writes: "These career-oriented officers and mid-grade and senior enlisted members are still far more conservative than liberal, but they are less likely today to identify with the GOP, the survey shows."

      The shift in party affiliation among active-duty troops comes on the heels of similar findings from a survey the publication released in 2008. Infantry officer Jason Dempsey writes on a comparable shift observed among troops between 2004 and 2006:

      A pretty little girl named Suzy was standing on the sidewalk in front of her home. Next to her was a basket containing a number of tiny creatures; in her hand was a sign announcing FREE KITTENS.

      Suddenly a line of big black cars pulled up beside her. Out of the lead car stepped a tall, grinning man.

      "Hi there, little girl, I'm President Obama.. What do you have in the basket?" he asked.

      "Kittens," little Suzy said.

      "How old are they?" asked Obama.

      Suzy replied, "They're so young, their eyes aren't even open yet."

      "And what kind of kittens are they?"

      "Democrats," answered Suzy with a smile..

      Obama was delighted. As soon as he returned to his car, he called his PR chief and told him about the little girl and the kittens.

      Recognizing the perfect photo op, the two men agreed that the president should return the next day, and, in front of the assembled media, have the girl talk about her discerning kittens.

      So the next day, Suzy was again standing on the sidewalk with her basket of "FREE KITTENS" when another motorcade pulled up, this time followed by vans from ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN..

      Cameras and audio equipment were quickly set up, then Obama got out of his limo and walked over to little Suzy.

      "Hello, again," he said, "I'd love it if you would tell all my friends out there what kind of kittens you're giving away."

      "Yes sir," Suzy said. "They're Republicans."

      Taken by surprise, the president stammered, "But.... but... yesterday, you told me they were DEMOCRATS."


      Little Suzy smiled and said, "I know. But today, they have their eyes open."

      Liberals live by The 11th "Commandment" which states "If you want to live your life with your head lodged firmly up your A$$, then that is your prerogative. So go for it! Breathe deep and don't worry about the direct relationship between oxygen and proper brain function. After all it seems to be working for Liberals thus far.

      All those morons that voted for the bill are realizing what they did.
      They are now learning what's in it.
      All of a sudden, they are talking about the debt and deficit.
      DUH. Idiots.
      58% of Americans are for repealing the bill.

      George Soros is an enemy of the world...A sociopath no doubt from the days when he turned in the Jews to Hitler.

      Karl West /Daily Mail
      Representatives of George Soros’s investment business were among an all-star line up of Wall Street investors at an ‘ideas dinner’ at a private townhouse in Manhattan, according to reports.

      A spokesman for Soros Fund Management said the legendary investor did not attend the dinner on February 8, but did not deny that his firm was represented.

      At the dinner, the speculators are said to have argued that the euro is likely to plunge in value to parity with the dollar.

      The single currency has been under enormous pressure because of Greece’s debt crisis, plus financial worries in Portugal, Italy, Spain and Ireland.

      But, it has also struggled because hedge funds have been placing huge bets on the currency’s decline, which could make the speculators hundreds of millions of pounds.

      The euro traded at $1.51 in December, but has since fallen to $1.34. Details of the secretive dinner emerged days after Mr Soros, chairman of Soros

      Finally, for those who refuse to live within reality;

      “At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child – miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill disciplined, despotic, and useless. Liberalism is the philosophy of sniveling brats.” – P.J. O’Rourke
