Alison is reporting on Syria’s options and likely moves in the face of a U.S. intervention in the region, Adam is using his confrontation with Helen his late mother in law to make a point about dealing with crazy.
Adam is asking if military intervention has ever worked out with the Middle East and has a great point about a dead body being a dead body and it shouldn’t matter whether chemical weapons were used, death is death.
Adam is now commenting on the hypocrites who now won’t tell the truth because “their guy” is in the Whitehouse, Adam is bringing up an article that shows many of the usual suspects have been mysteriously silent with Obama as commander and chief.
Adam is now breaking down the hypocrisy one both sides of the fence, the right wing suddenly not into military intervention and the left suddenly not into critiquing military intervention, brilliant observation from the Aceman!

Alison is explaining the arguments on both sides and Adam has a great number one reason not to build one involving daughters using said bunker for teenage antics.
Adam has a new rule on feet underground equating amount of time before your daughter loses her virginity and BB has an inverse plan, great scissor lift comedy from Ace!
