Another link? Can't you come up with your own comments? Or don't you have any original thoughts?

It's too easy to just post any controversial BS just to debate what others post. Takes away from the article that started the mess in the first place as so many get way off topic. I'll bet once you've read down less than a third of the way through these posts you don't even remember what the article was about. Anonymous posters tend to do this and change the subject to whatever they want to debate. Maybe the Patch could do more checking to make sure the posts actually relate to the article and not whatever new subject someone wants to throw in.

BREAKING NEW! The President is now proposing to cut $129 Million from America's Embassy Security, Construction and Maintenance. Since they are all burned down and destroyed now, this should not be a problem for him. Maybe he will use the savings in construction and maintenance and buy some bullets for the Marines and embassy staff members? http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/09/14/Obama-releases-sequester-report-cuts-defense-embassy-budget
