Thank you, Ohio, for foisting this fraud upon us again. Your voting intelligence is rapidly approaching that of Massachusetts. I only hope there are enough conservatives in the House to deny him another 2 as speaker.

I would say the problem is twofold. First the government has made a crime of any activity IT does not like. The big debate and harsh laws about marijuana is foolish, costly and time consuming. Before some politician needed a wooly booger platform to run on back in the '30's most folks never heard of mj. Today thousands are locked up because of it and some pissant politician. Second. Elimination of capital punishment can be blamed for overcrowding and the large percentage of recidivists. If a person is incorrigible why should the taxpayer support him in prison for a lifetime at something around $30,000.00 a year?

This nightmare has been with me for many years, in part. Years ago I was in the mid Pacific talking to airplanes on HF, VHF and UHF. VHF and UHF were good for line of sight mostly while HF was for long distance. In '69 or '70 the French detonated a nuke in the Society Islands. The nuclear radiation destroyed all voice communication on HF frequencies for a week or 10 days. The ONLY means of communication with aircraft over a distance was CW (dots and dashes code). They quit teaching CW in military over 35 years ago and with satellite communication they dismantled all the aircraft reporting stations 30 years ago. Now I understand they no longer teach celestial navigation to sailors at The Academy. So should push come to shove one of the first things to go will be communication satellites. And the first nuke will destroy voice communication on HF frequency radios. How the hell does the military expect to communicate under these conditions?

Contempt of Congress means very little to these folks. Unless pay and/or retirement is withheld pending compliance. That might get a little incentive up.
Now let me get this right... A SecDef who applauds open homosexuality in the services wants..."..moral character and moral courage.."???????????

Damn! I had to look twice to make sure Ann Coulter was the author of this.
So if the ATF doesn't cooperate why are they still funded? Congress still holds the purse strings... I presume...

Go ahead, GOP RNC and learn nothing from pushing Dole, McCain and Romney off on us. Push Christi or someone like him and we will stay home again. Possibly, this time, forming a 3rd party.
