Click here to go behind the scenes with Jack Cafferty.Watch Cafferty video: Funding the WarIs it fair to tie funding for the war in Iraq to a deadline for pulling out the troops?
The Bush administration's strategy has been to hold the troops hostage and demand funding to protect them. Which extortion strategy is worse?Jeff, Carmel, New York
It is most definitely fair. We cannot fund the war indefinitely and the best way to support the troops is by bringing them home to their families.Marty, Douglas, Arizona
Jack, It is a tough call. Was it fair that we were told the war was about WMD? Was it fair to all those who have served so bravely? Is it fair to those who lost their lives? Does it make any sense to throw anymore lives and money into this hellhole?Kay, Naples, FloridaWhat does it mean when almost half of college students binge drink or abuse drugs?
My college son tells me the same thing. After nearly 6 years in college (going for a double major) he has seen the shift from a little pot and a lot of drinking to regular binge drinking and a broad use of pills of all kinds. They get them from all sources: family, prescriptions, online... sometimes emptying them into a bowl or plate and just randomly picking them and washing them down with a drink.Charlotte, Monticello, Arkansas
It means that nothing has changed in American colleges and universities for innumerable decades or since Jack was young.Drew, Fairfax, Virginia
I'm surprised that the numbers of students binge drinking and abusing drugs isn't actually higher. When I was in college in the late '80s and early '90s, we always lied on those sorts of surveys. No one wanted to let the 'man' know what we were doing, and certainly didn't trust the university administration with that sort of information.Brian, Chicago, Illinois
The answer to your question is "nothing." These are kids of Boomers. And what were we doing in college in the 70's?Rick, Golden, ColoradoHow can Senator John McCain recapture his maverick reputation?
I lost all respect for Senator McCain when he caved on the detainee/torture bill. He had it stopped but went back on his principles.Jim, Southborough, Massachusetts
John McCain has followed the Hillary book of political makeovers. Both are saying what they think powerful voting blocks want to hear, and have left behind their independent integrity. Just as Hillary should be honest enough to proudly proclaim her compassionate liberalism, McCain should return to being the honest and independent maverick that gained him his following in the first place.John
Try dropping out of the presidential race. With his stance on illegal aliens, there is no way I would vote for him.Mike, Sebring, Florida
McCain needs to shut up and go home; he's over!Peggy, El Dorado Springs, Missouri
