    I don't think we've got much choice but to go after ISIS. It's either that or we better get used to the beheadings. A few more of them, and they'll become the new normal. Pretty soon they won't even report them on CNN any more. Sen. Johnson doesn't need to send any family members, since there are plenty of people these days who want to join the Army. They do it with ad campaigns, I guess. As for how to pay for it, Lawrence Korb says have a surtax, but in reality we'll probably get the Chinese to handle it for us. Then, when ISIS comes to call, we can tell them to go knock on China's door. A free war, who could ask for more?
