Mr Hunter: What do you suggest the Republicans do? The MSM refuses to deal with the issue neutrally or fairly. Through it, the Democrats bombard the public with propaganda hourly. They also attack the Constitution from myriad angles on a constant basis. They're like firebugs who set not one big fire that's easy to see and deal with, but tens of dozens of little ones that require attention and scatter our force. I repeat: What do we do? It's easy to critique the Republican Party's performance here, but what's a better approach that will save the day?

Allen West's military service was exemplary. His awards and decorations include the Bronze Star, Meritorious Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, Valorous Unit Award, Air Assault Badge, and the Master Parachutist Badge.The incident which ended in his retirement (with full benefits) was a questionable use of interrogation techniques (while serving in Iraq) to uncover a plot to ambush his unit. It should be noted that there were no further ambushes against American forces in his area until he was relieved of his leadership post.

I was thinking the same thing, however, it's good to have a laundry list of "should haves" to help define the weaknesses in the questioning that did take place. I'm at a loss as to why suddenly so many Republicans have gone soft and weak-spined when it comes to challenging any Democrat's policy, action or position. There's something very wrong in Washington D.C. that goes beyond a socialist/Marxist presidency. The only people I trust right now to uphold the Constitution and its principles are the Tea Party members who came on board in Congress. The rest are too pliable; too willing to compromise or roll over and play dead.
Children, children! Quit squabbling! There are more important issues to debate.
Yep! But bless you for being one!
"Neither can pass laws which aid one religion, aid all religions, or prefer one religion over another." So would you be okay with all religions being examined in the context of, let's say, history? Religion, like it or not, is an intrinsic part of any society and therefore should be understood. When did we start banishing information that a few find uncomfortable from schools? Isn't the point of school to turn out informed students who are prepared to meet and understand the larger world? Again, religion is not some side issue of no import. It's everywhere and threads its way through society, culture, and history.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, Ms. Malkin! I'm an educational writer and have railed against this common core standards tripe for years. My mother was an elementary school teacher for over 30 years, and through her eyes, I witnessed the disintegration of our L.A. City Schools in the name of progressive education. I myself learned the old-fashioned way -- by rote -- and that is information that sticks. The more progressive we get in this country, the more backwards we become.

Do Gun Control Laws Control Guns?

Nicely put, but you're assuming that what the liberal anti-gun folk want is to save lives. Not so. They want to disarm the populace, pure and simple. They do this under the guise of "saving just one life will make it worth it", "for the children", and all the other smoke & mirror excuses they can conjure. They don't want the "little people" -- you and me; the cogs in their wheel -- to be able to resist the tyranny they have in mind.

ObamaCare Strikes Again

I just went through 5 years of watching my mother die of Alzheimer's. Thank God she had excellent coverage through her teacher's union. I'll never enjoy the fabulous end-of-life care that she had, and that truly scares me. At the age of 86, she fell, crushed her hip, and was given a replacement within 48 hours. Under Obamacare, no doubt she would have waited and perhaps been denied help altogether because she was "too old." The people behind this "healthcare" program are sick SOBs who will never have to fear for themselves or their families, and don't give a #@%! about the rest of us.
Objection to gay marriage (as opposed to civil unions, which are already legal) is not homophobic, nor is it bigotry. The social consequences are far-reaching and worthy of consideration. Why isn't it possible to have a rational debate about it, without the name-calling and character assassination? Those are not arguments, but avoidance of the issue. Like many other self-important groups, gays want what they want when they want it, and to heck with the consequences. If someone objects, well then, they're just mean (and worse) -- end of discussion. It's childish.
