Postal service is one of the legitimate operations of the federal government, mandated by the Constitution. If the feds had any sense, they would stop trying to make the service pay for itself and use it as a way to make US businesses more competitive with foreign competition. I can often buy an item and have it shipped to me delivered from China for less than what it costs to mail an item within the USA. In effect, the USA is subsidizing the competition. In trying to make consumers pay the entire cost of mailing an item - which is what current law requires - Congress is eliminating entire classes of mail, which makes delivering the rest of the mail more expensive.
With any luck Cochran will soon join his wife in the nursing home. It's obvious he has lost a step or 5 since his last election.
Voter outreach and cultural roots? Is that what they are calling bribery and race baiting now? Boss Hogg - aka Haley Barbour - and the other trough feeders in Mississippi convinced enough black Mississippi Democrats to get out for the runoff that their welfare and voting rights were in jeopardy to join the pork barrel Republicans to vote for Cochran. End of story.
Nah, that would cover the Whitehouse, the DOJ, the IRS, the CIA, the .....
Thank you Dr Pangloss. We live in the best of all possible worlds. NOT! Being a pessimist, I look forward to the NSA and police agencies using all the advances on communication and technology to control the hoi polloi, business owners using technology to replace workers, and smart phone and tablet owners to play games instead of fact checking the Obamas of the world.
I guess the NSA must not have as much on this judge as they have on Justice John Roberts.
I have seldom read an article about Christianity that showed so little awareness of the history of the subject. As far as I know there has never been unity of theology within Christianity, and often the differences have resulted in literal wars. You know, bodies littering the ground wars. Be thankful that, for the most part, theological disagreement with Christianity result in mere insults and recriminations and excommunications, and the heretics are no longer turned over to the Inquisition, renamed the Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office in 1904.
When seconds count, police are just minutes away.
For whatever reason, Nixon was unwilling to just destroy the tapes that brought him down and tell Congress to go pound sand. President Obama has no such compunction, no matter what US law says. He will not be brought down without the Senate being willing to convict him on articles of impeachment, which ain't gonna happen, no matter what the evidence is that is presented.
I'm sure that ISIS will be happy to honor the SF's non-combatant status.
It would be nice if the USA had a Commander in Chief who had a clue about what it is that SF is trained to do. "non-combat Special Forces". PLEASE! Obama needs to go back to being a community organizer and leave the serious stu8ff to someone who knows which end of the barrel the round comes out of.
