Re: Randall_B, Perhaps the following definition of the word "Warrior" from the merriam- Webster Dictionary will help you to understand the use of the word "Warrior" by Col. Schlichter. "Warrior" a person who fights in battles and is known for having courage and skill Hopefully this will end your nitpicking of a word that seems to escape your understanding. Fred Speckmann commonsenseforamericans.webs.com commonsenseforamericans@yahoo.com Your explanation of U.S. Military members and their duties certainly are correct, gut that does not mean that the word "warrior" is not appropriate for them.

Thank you for your service, but more than that, thank you for speaking the truth about what our military has become as a result of the incompetent civilian leadership. Sadly, as you stated, that incompetence has seeped into some of the upper echelon of the officer corps as well. Fred Speckmann commonsenseforamericans.webs.com commonsenseforamericans@yahoo.com
This story boils down to a few simple options. It seems that it is a fact that Rep. Scalise did speak before a group involved with David Duke. Duke was known to be a leader within the KKK and Rep. Scalise should have known that fact at the time of the speech, If he didn't, then he should have, so he either is sloppy in his research or his staff is. The bottom line is that it really doesn't matter who is at fault for this bad choice, Scalise is ultimately responsible. It really doesn't matter what other politicians are guilty of, we already know that hypocrisy is the coin of the realm among politicians. The choice for conservatives boils down to this, no matter what others do, we must hold our own responsible for their choices whether they are caused by laziness or incompetence. Scalise must go as well as any other stupid politician whether democrat liberal or conservative republican. It is high time to bring back integrity into politics before it's too late.

Re: Stam, It seems that Stossel has often explained his conversion to conservatism in his outlook over the years. Perhaps you weren't listening, reading or watching his interviews where he explained it. Sometimes people, especially in the media business take quiet a long time to see the media for what it is. I have always found John Stossel to be very honest even during the times that he was a little more liberal in his outlook. The point is that his change strikes me as completely honest and he at least is willing to provide facts to back his opinions. It would be truly delightful to see a little more of that attitude throughout the many know it alls pretending to be intelligent in their reporting.

Re: Needfulthings, Sir, your attempt at being a satirical critic of John Stossel's writing doesn't quiet measure up to any acceptable standard. In your attempt to be sarcastic you state that "You got it in spades and got every point wrong." Okay, exactly what di he get wrong in this article, and what specifically are you describing as his "bad work." A few facts may be in order to explain your point.

Re: Michael247, Sir, your comment regarding Wendy Davis, while I sympathize with your opinion about her treatment of her husband and her general despicable conduct during the election, nevertheless I find your calling her a "hoe" just as despicable. If you want to accuse her of being a prostitute, then make your accusation and provide the proof or simply stop using terms that are absurd in their use to describe political disagreements. Your point would be better made if you and many others simply grew up and debate these matters like gentlemen. Enough of this stupidity already.

Theatres bid on films for a certain number of weeks on a percentage of gross ticket sales. The longer a film remains in a theatre the lower the percentage after the first term. It used to be 6 week cycles, but I'm pretty sure it's shorter now. this form of payment is the reason that refreshment sales are so important and prices so high. Without those sales theatres wouldn't make any money at all. Fred Speckmann commonsenseforamericans@yahoo.com
Dear Mr. Ransom, I believe you have a slight miscalculation in your math, the Nazis declared war 73 years ago. I'm 66 and was born in Germany in 1948.a few years after the war was over. Fred Speckmann
Re: Cam25, First of all, there is no such clause in the Constitution that states "separation of Church and State." The Establishment Clause to which you are referring states that , "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." Since the Constitution was written and voted to be the supreme law of this nation, many federal judges who are anti-Christian have found reasons to rule against th practice of religion in their hats. Or perhaps in some orifice or other. Sadly, at times this has included some progressive liberal supreme Court Justices. Frankly, it has become very doubtful if some of those judges have ever read the Constitution. It has certainly become very clear that few of them understand it. Of course when it comes to our elected politicians, there is no doubt at all as to their acquaintance with the Constitution. If they had such an acquaintance they would have to rip up 90% of the federal laws that have been past in the last 100 years. To clarify any misunderstanding as to the meaning of the Establishment Clause, it means that no governmental body in the United States has the right to inflict any form of religion upon the citizens, but more than that, it has absolutely no right whatsoever to interfere with the practice of religion anyplace and anytime by anyone in this once great nation, period,end of sentence and end of this absurd argument against religious practices by citizens of the United States.
