“Boo-Hoo” for Diana Nyad

Re: Donjindra, -- but at least she has a goal -- Yep, and so did all those Cubans that drowned in its pursuit.
Re: byeBarry, "What the hell is a Cuban-American! " It's what pro-Castro imbeciles believe are the only ones that hate Castro. I'm Mexican and I find him among the most loathsome person that ever existed, besides Mao, Pol Pot and Stalin.
Re: allofoz, "Who is more of a dinosaur, Castro, or the Cuban-Americans obsessed with him? " I don't know if he's a dinosaur, but he is certainly as long lasting as syphilis, and just as funny.
Re: Phd3, "I also find it interesting how they never talk about Batista, who was a far more brutal dictator than Castro ever was." That's a lie. He was a dictator, all right, but nowhere near as brutal as Castro and his regime. Castro has jailed and killed more dissidents than Batista could have ever dreamed existed.

A Moral Question for the GOP

-- Many conservatives reject President Obama's recent policy to defer action against illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children. -- Many "Conservatives" are nothing more than Progressives in drag. Anti-immigration bias stems directly from economic protectionism (that is, economic fallacy) and simple chauvinism, all the staples of Progressivism. Most contemporary anti-immigration laws and quotas were the DIRECT RESULT of Progressive policies, starting in 1924. You can't have the promised Paradise On Earth if it's "soiled" by foreigners, especially if these are *gasp!* Catholic! OMG! True Conservatives respect NATURAL Law, limited government and freedoms. Faux conservatives are nothing more than socialists.

Re: arthur131, "First it was people with last names like Chavez that introduced Africans to the new world as slaves." You've got to be kidding me - a supposed conservative using a GENETIC FALLACY? Like I imagined, so called "Conservative" Townhallers are nothing more than Progressives in C drag.

Re: McMichael, "Chavez claims to be a conservative?" Yes, she's more of a Conservative than you. Immigration restriction is an entirely PROGRESSIVE idea, mr. progressive.

Re: Cartwright, -- "Ryan may have voted for big spending in the past" So, your derision for those that see Ryan with suspicion is unresonable. If Ryan voted for Big Government spending, then why wouldn't a freedom-loving person see his selection for VP with reasoned dread? -- "Ryan is likely, like many others, more aware now of our fiscal peril " Yet he voted the way he did. He wasn't a fool, he just didn't care! Is that what you're suggesting?

Re: John5840, "The lack of specificity is noticeable" Perhaps the Founding Fathers did not believe the United States would be populated by equivocators, obfuscators and downright cheats. And perhaps the US is still not populated with obfuscators, equivocators and cheats - only the GOVERNMENT is.

Re: Maryann45, "If this was a perfect world I would be a Libertarian too " If this were a perfect world, I would be a Statist because I would then know that government is populated by veritable angels and not corrupt individuals, the most corrupt among us. Your thinking is totally backwards. The very reason to be free is precisely that man is fallible. It is through freedom to interact and to KNOW that we can minimize the hazards and risks cused by thieves, cheats and liars. Instead, with a government, people tend to lower their guard, thinking that Daddy Government is there to protect them - leading to what we've seen for years.
