Its just more big government piled on an already oppressive system. Once in place, states would be demanding more and more money and Santa Claus (Feds )would dole it out like ice cream cones to kids wanting sweets. How about eliminating the programs that are no longer needed first or better yet, all of these welfare programs and let each state decide what it wants to do in the way of welfare. That way we eliminate one bureaucracy which has an unlimited alimentary canal.

Beau Bergdahl’s Duty—And Ours

Sorry Ken, we do know he deserted his post and walked out of the Camp without permission and he was looking for the Taliban. He was not taken by the tooth fairy nor captured by a hairy monster nor given drugs or any other fantasy trip. And we know that American soldiers were killed looking for him because his former comrades were among them and they know when the deaths occurred and who died. So do the parents now know and they are rightfully upset. Pictures of him with his new Taliban friends and walking freely around a camp and even given a weapon show he was not always a prisoner. They guy's letters home and distaste for the American military preceded his leaving without authorization and violating his duty. The real issue is what are is our military going to do about it? He has to be court martialed and he can tell his story if he wants. I doubt he will testify about anything.
That is what a court marital is you idiot. He gets to present his defense. Its not a "marshall" either. That is usually an officer of the law. Remember Marshall Dillion?

The title of this article tells us why it just a POC. I cannot believe you wrote this Ann. Just let the voter fraud go on and "live to fight another day"? Just let the McCains and other Rhinos get out the minority vote of Democrats to elect our representatives? What kind of attitude is that which will encourage others to take up the fight as GOP candidates in the future. Meanwhile, we get Thad (Where does the GOP meet for lunch?) Cochran to vote with the other RHINO's.

RIP Louis Zamperini

Maybe the greatest book I ever read. The courage, perseverance, guts and determination of Louie Zamperini are beyond description. His life was an adventure no fiction writer could dream up. You owe yourself to read this book so when things get tough, or where you think its beyond hope and time to quit, you can recall what having true grit really means.

NPR Shills for Socialism

What the hell difference does a boxer's name make to the subject of why people risk their lives to leave Cuba. Cuban exiles have been floating and dying for decades to get out of Castro's world. And NPR is providing a false narrative about the wonders of this Castro's Cuba. Its socialist BS. As for supporting NPR, in no way does it compare to museums, Zoos or other one Institutions with no competition. Government does not get to pick winners and losers in the entertainment business. If NPR cannot make it on its own with donations from you and others like you, then it deserves to go the way of Air America and other liberal stations that did make it. No one gave a rats A** about them and they had no listening base. No other radio station, of which there are hundreds nation wide, gets $4 billion of our money to support it. And its still got its hand out. If you cannot make it on your own, get out of the radio business. The Eric's of the world can support you -or Not. PBS produces quality programs with advertisers and donors. Good for them if they can sustain their model. But don't expect me to pay for it through my tax dollars any more than for NBC, CBS, ABC or any of the cable channels. They make it on their own, why not "Public Broadcasting". If its worthy, it will attract advertisers and customers who support if with their dollars, not mine.
No nuclear allowed by the leftists/ environmentalists. Forget that one. It produces energy in other countries but not in" my back yard." Nothing we currently have will replace oil and the value and variety of petroleum products. If there was such a substance it would be developed and being sold for billions. Wind is way too unreliable and not available in sufficient quantity for sustained use. Solar has value but it still cannot replace coal and oil. You have assumed that warming is a bad thing. Forget that it has not occurred in almost two decades in this country and that there have been many warmer periods in recorded history than now. iWhat we should be in fear of is an ice age because that has a dramatic effect on production of our necessary food chain. As recently as the 40"s -50's that was what scientists wrote about as the coming menace. Wrong again.
I am with you. The problem is people thinking government is the solution. Its the problem. Term limits, sunset provisions on spending laws, getting rid of half the staffers and eliminating all the redundant agencies which perpetrate themselves with no purpose other than to exist. People today are non-thinking sheep who follow the flock and thus we get an Obama.
How in the world did this shallow report come from a Managaing Editor of Town Hall. No analysis at all of the types of jobs- full or part time-nor how many people went out of the job market at the same time.
No, it makes her an Obama supporter. She takes her guide to political lying from the BO in the WH.
