Re: Cuba...

I do not understand why people expect instantaneous change in Cuba as we lift restrictions. 50 years of embargo have done nothing but strengthen the Castro's. Arguably, China has a far worse record on human rights, yet we have no issue there. These things take time. We cannot influence them if we ha...

Re: Obama does it again

"Defied everyone" by doing what he is constitutionally required to do? Why is it such a surprise? The surprise is he picked a rather older, moderate candidate. Ball is in the Senates court, which clearly they intend to do nothing and I am sure the court of public opinion will come into play this Nov...

Re: President Obama and Christianity

Obama Muslim Fruit I acknowledge that Obama has claimed to be a Muslim and on other occasions he has claimed to be a Christian. QUESTION: When was Obama telling the truth? Really? I don't know why I bothered with the heavily edited video, but no, he never says that he is Muslim. I can quote the Kor...

Re: To all of you Millennials out there who want FREE colleg

I do not believe millennials expect free college, just a more reasonably priced one. I opted for the Navy route, myself. Cost was a factor, but mostly because I did not know what I wanted to do. Since I scored in the top 2% on their tests, they talked me into their nuclear program which required 6 y...

Re: More Republicans Say They’ll Block Supreme Court Nominee

It's not actually "common practice". As one Supreme court justice I admired, Sandra Day O'conner says: "I think we need somebody there to do the job now and let's get on with it," said O'Connor, the first woman appointed to the Supreme Court. O'Connor, 85, agreed it's unusual for a Supreme Court vac...

Re: Ted Cruz for President Talk

Also, back to Ted, as Kenny has asked... I find it interesting that he was born in Canada to an American woman and folks are talking about his birth certificate/nationality. His father is Cuban. Will this be another situation like President Obama? According to his "website", you maybe right, the ir...

Re: Ted Cruz for President Talk

It should be interesting how this plays out. Obama will certainly nominate someone. to suggest he shouldn't is idiocy. He must. Then the ball will be in republican senates court, with a disproportionate amount of republicans defending their seats for re-election. At the same time, the nominees for p...

I would like Peyton to win as it is likely his last game ever, but Panthers are the better team, and they will win.

Re: Donald Trump You're Fired!

I predict Cruz will do as well as the last 2 Republican Caucus winners in Iowa. Most likely. Extreme Democrats will win over extreme Republicans. Do I like it? Not at all. I can't stand where the party has moved to. I'd like to see the leadership of Newt Gingrich, who worked with Bill Clinton, to b...

A stronger, smarter military. The size is not the point any longer. Quality of troops, equipment, and intelligence. Boots on the ground mentality is not the same as before - except to those who can't give up the history of the past and their hooah days. Forward, quality, smart thinking is required ...

Re: Donald Trump You're Fired!

I am quite sure we are polar opposites when it come to who we think the very stupid people are. I also would say that I think the Oligarchy direction of the country is more of an issue then socialism. To that ends, I agree with you, Campaign finance, the dark money, is a huge issue. I have also come...
