  • Why is Trump holding his parade on Nov. 11th?

    November 11th will be the hundredth anniversary of the end of World War One. Shouldn't the parade honor the sacrifice of the military who died in wars, not a draft dodger who claimed to have bone spurs that miraculous healed by itself?

  • Can you imagine the aneurysm the press would have had?

    Can you imagine the aneurysm the press would have had if Obama had said his only goal was to make sure McConnell was a 1 term Senate leader? They would have screamed and hollered about such a comment. So why did the new Majority Leader in the Senate get a free pass for his comments? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-A09a_g...

  • Was there a lot of Christian outrage?

    At the NRA convention Sarah Palin compared the torture of waterboarding to the induction into the peaceful religion of Christianity. Was there a lot of outrage in the Christian community that she would compare an act of violence to their beliefs? Are they demanding an immediate apology for her words? Or will they simply let this slide, again?

    restricting Republican voters rights to chose their next Presidential candidate? "The Republican Party has over-learned the lessons of the outrageously damaging 2012 presidential nomination calendar, and today, it passed a raft of new rules designed to, as Zeke Miller writes, tighten control over the process. 1. It takes power away from state parties, many of which, including the all-important Iowa Republican Party, are controlled by Tea Party activists. It centralizes power in the Republican National Committee. States that want to jump ahead will face serious penalties. (Of course, the nominee could always move to restore the delegates taken away from the penalized states at the convention.) 2. It increases the threshold for earning delegates, which will help GOP candidates who can win in larger states, and will penalize those who hold to a small-state strategy. It also makes the larger states much more valuable than they currently are. 3. It shortens the period of time between contests, which means that candidates who unexpectedly win a state won't have as much time to bask in the free media that accompanies it. 4. It reduces the amount of money that serious candidates have to raise for the primaries, allowing them to focus more on general election fundraising. 5. It marginalizes movement conservatives in smaller states by effectively writing them out of the process. http://theweek.com/article/index/255572/... So does "less government" really translate as "less control over the government by the people"?

    There have now been two incidents of snack food related attacks in Florida. First George Zimmerman was the victim of a vicious Skittles attack and had no choice but to pull his gun just barely escaping with his life. Next Curtis Reeves came under a relentless popcorning and had to shoot to kill. Clearly there are too many people in Florida who can simply walk into any corner convenience store and pick up any deadly snack they want. How can our children be safe knowing someone is walking around with an unlicensed Hershey bar just waiting to pounce on some poor soul armed only with a gun? When will someone finally stand up and put an end to the madness?
