Of course, they get hired because it's just a country they've always wanted to visit! Come on America, does anybody believe the Obama administration even has a foreign policy? No foreign policy, no real need for ambassadors!

Two words: Martin Bashir.
Color bars or a test pattern with hits from the 80s played over the picture should do it! After all it's CNN; half their audience is watching the six TV tuned to CNN at the Dayton airport!
As an aside, the poem cited in Larry Elder's article is called "Incident" by Countee Cullen. It's still found in many American lit text books used in many US high schools. I have used it as part of a poetry unit on the "Harlem Renaissance" in my Jr American lit classes for many years. Incident Once riding in old Baltimore, Heart-filled, head-filled with glee, I saw a Baltimorean Keep looking straight at me. Now I was eight and very small, And he was no whit bigger, And so I smiled, but he poked out His tongue, and called me, 'Nxgger.' I saw the whole of Baltimore From May until December; Of all the things that happened there That's all that I remember. (can't post with the "inappropriate language"; spell change)
And the fact that GM's European division (Opel/Vuxhall cars) is deeply in debt with low sales and projected plant closings. The Bochem plant in Germany will close after the current union contracts expire in a few years. Two German GM plants in Russelsheim and Kaiserlautern have cut back work weeks. (Under current union contracts half of the "lost" pay will be made up by the German government.) And back here in the US, when you put the bill still owed to the taxpayers ($27.2 billion) for the bailout together with what GM owes to its former workers ($24.5 billion), that's $51.7 billion dollars that GM still owes to just US workers and US Taxpayers! "Osama is dead and GM is alive," really means GM is on life-support!
Cear the "undergrowth and diseased trees" from forests! Great idea, but some states try to do that, but the feds have to take the lead. Why? Because the feds have a better chance of fighting all the environmentalists (and their own EPA) who too often take the states and other local governments to court. Try and get an environmental statement to clear a forest today, and in some cases, it can take years after you submit an environmental impact study, and go through all the costly and legal hurtles. During the WPA and the CCC days, we didn't have the EPA and a host of civilian enviromental groups who derive their profits through litigation. These are some of the things that need to be addressed in the next administration.
Fine, we can all give those who do "household tasks and errands" respect, but don't expect "society" to give them a pay check. The household breadwinner, whomever he or she is, is the one who should "pay" that person. Now, I just finished vacuuming the rugs and mopping the tile floors, and when my wife get's home, I hope she gives me respect and a few bucks! (Caution: I said "bucks.")
