An American Comeback

Whether republican successes or democrat, why not take lessons learned from around the country and apply to lift everyone up? If Mr. Jindahl has had great success with charter schools, why not try and use as a model for other areas? I'm sure there are many examples of what works and hasn't (high speed trains to nowhere CA?) so why not take from the good and avoid the bad.
Ok, if it's a site/monument that, for whatever reason, required assistance, great I get it. But if it's a beach, mountains, etc, why would it need to be shut down? Do people need help walking on the beach or hiking? Agree, with Ms. Malkin, it's all "look at me, look at me" BS.

I laugh every time someone comments about how hard it is to find a decent man/woman to date anymore, when they are looking at bars, clubs at 2am while their multiple children are being cared for by mom/dad/grandma/grandpa, and they themselves are no prizewinners.

9/11: America's Unfinished Business

The word revenge is not used in the entire article.
Not too dissimilar to attack on FOB Salerno, after a period of relative calm, relatively same time frame; troops on-hand responded. Prepare for the worst. We had ANA/ANP guards a couple years prior to that, some places had contract guards but not sure if still used. Always vigilant, never know what may come.
Must not have enough homework....wonder what they are/were majoring in, I'd wager a guess it's not anything with a real job waiting at the end of it.
I get what you're trying to say kmassey, and agree to a degree. BUT, remember what occurred with Chik-fil-A, same story but on the other side. If they make a great chicken sandwich, treat employees and customers well, then personal beliefs of CEO shouldn't matter, right?

In addition to articles posted on TH, others are also taking exception. Granted, I'm sure it states "Based on a true story", I hope at the end the is the disclaimer that all characters are fictitious, and resemblance is coincidental, etc as the story/events seem to have been modified to make more "entertaining". http://thegrio.com/2013/08/13/actor-harry-lennix-calls-the-butler-historical-porn/

ABC's Good Morning Sex

This is unfortunate indeed.....as an owner of stock in Disney, repeated craptastic shows like this that appeal to few and are cancelled means loss of revenue. If ABC, as part of Disney, is in the business to make money, then when wil they stop making steaming piles of garbage in the same vein that don't work. Insert insanity definition here. Stick to making family friendly shows, movies, etc, that is what made Disney what it is....

The "to Hell with Them" Doctrine

God sent his Son for all....we are tasked with the difficult task to love our enemies. I think many don't really wish harm to your typical Muslim (or any other people/group/etc) but obviously do when faced with harm from some. US troops in these countries may provide some successes, but when removed it is possible things will revert or become worst. I pray not, but it is ultimately what the people of these lands decide to do. At some point, you have to brush the dust off your sandals and move on.

The "royal abortion" comment is a catchy phrase/point, but I've got to believe the bulk of women having abortions are not married and that abortion is a "remedy/solution" to poor choices and not something folks flaunt and talk about in a happy manor. Nor should they.
