How Much Should We Tolerate?

I will flag you as offensive each time I see you post random, made up statements with no supporting facts anywhere in sight. Because it is offensive to waste my time reading your *rap. So far, this has resulted in flagging all of you posts. Congratulations for the perfect score.

Rand Paul’s Cluelessness on Cuba

Humberto is a one hill soldier, and Cuba is his hill. But for a more balanced view, you have to consider the overall foreign policy picture. In it, you will note the Americans can travel to Vietnam, and we import and export products to and from Vietnam. This is despite the 50000 American soldiers who were killed by the Vietnamese. As evil as you may think Cuba was and is, they aren't even in close running with that kind of evil impact on the US. So either we should put an embargo in place on Vietnam, as well as the Japanese, the Chinese and what's left of Russia, or more rationally stop the useless embargo on Cuba. It simply doesn't serve any national interest of ours to continue it. And, FWIW, I am a fiscal and social conservative, and can't recall many Oboso decisions I've agreed with.
Too bad he didn't hit the golf course on day 1 of his supposed presidency and stay there until someone mentioned to him that his presidency was over. The country would have been going gangbusters !

As a conservative and capitalist I have to agree. There has been no rational reason to boycott Cuba for years. If Americans can fly into communist Vietnam and purchase Vietnamese products, after they killed 50000 of our soldiers, what logic has us continuing a boycott against a country that has done far less damage over the same timeframe ? China is arguably our worst foe right now,yet we can go there, and they are supplying us with billions of dollars of products ? Time to end the farce. The only argument for continuing the boycott is emotional, and I'm not a big supporter of emotional arguments deciding foreign policy.

I like Walker, not least because the unions hate him.
At 6'7, I have been asked by various people over the years to get things for them from the upper shelves of stores. I didn't realize it was a racist situation if the askers were other than white, as I am. I just stupidly got their items for them, and for some reason we all smiled ! I'll try to pay more attention in the future /sarc
McCain and Romney would have made far better presidents than Obama. But they lost largely because a bunch of conservatives stayed home or voted for people who were conservative but had no chance at actually winning. Your strategy would simply ensure Hillery gets elected. Strategically it is great to support conservatives. Tactically it is important to vote for whoever ends up on the Repub ticket.
You apparently confuse painful ways of killing someone to interrogation. I doubt anyone would confuse water boarding with disembowling, beheadings, dissecting and burning alive. The 8th amendment does not preclude the use of what we call harse interrogation methods since they are not unnecessary cruelty, as you quote, and were certainly not inflicted simply for the sake of pain. Nice try, though.
I'm sure they will rule in the Repubs favor and fine the Demos $1000, about 6 months after the election...
