Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.
Biden is the vice president of the US. We have a right to hear him and should be permitted to hear him speak daily. Between his lunacy and DWS, I get all the comic relief I need during a stressful day.

Why Do Liberals Love Obama Anyway?

The student unrest against LBJ erupted when it became apparent that white middle class kids were being drafted, not just black inner city kids who could not get draft deferments. The movement had more to do with narcissism than ideology. Current left wingers find power to be the very same aphrodisiac that it has always been for them.

Where Have All the Leaders Gone?

I do not see a leader of the magnitude about which Paulson speaks in our future. Certainly, there is no one on the left. Republicans will assault anyone who steps out of line with the party rule.
Latinos are not a unified voting block. Cuban and most South American Latinos have conservative leanings. Central American Latinos generally favor Democrat policies. There is absolutely no call for any immigration in America. We have some 16,000,000 Americans unemployed or underemployed. Immigration policy must first and foremost serve the national interest, not the interest of those who are dis-satisfied with the way things are run in their home country. I seem to recall that some 238 years ago, those in this country were dis-satisfied with the way things were run here. They did something about it. Hey world, suck it up and do something besides looking to the US for a handout.
Assad is a right wing dictator, that is the absolute worst case and can not be tolerated, just as with Mubarak and Qaddafi. It does not matter what replaces the evil right wing anything, so long as it is not right wing. Liberalism is a mental illness.
Obama's "plan" was nothing more than a political trick - a plan so stupid that Republicans would have to vote it down. Low information voters would not have any idea about how stupid the plan is, but would only be told that Obama had a plan to stop ISIS but the nasty Republicans voted against him because they want him to fail. Boehner did not take the bait. Obama got what he asked for but not what he wanted.
The trials that are faced by women in the service, it is an even greater burden for national guard women who are activated. My daughter, a combat medic, is training at the Armed Forces Language School. After 15 months of very intensive training, and being subjected to an unlimited degree of humiliation by Arabic teachers and classmates whose views on omen is 7th century, she will return to civilian life. No job, her former employer will not take her back - "What is she is deployed, where will that leave me?" , Without a job, no place to live. The Army National Guard has no concern for the plight of a soldier trying to serve and re-enter civilian life. The regular Army has no use for National guard. The civilian world has no use for them, and even the guard unit has little concern. The Army National Guard provides 60% of the Army order of battle. How will the security of the nation remain safe when we treat troops like this?
It matters little if the sanctions work. They make the socialists feel good and it gives what used to be the press a story to fabricate messages about leadership and boldly standing up to Russia, which by the way poses not immediate threat to France, except for the threat of shutting off the natural gas spigot for winter as a consequence of the sanctions. Altogether a brilliant strategy.

Funding A Fool’s Errand In Syria

Congress failed to take the administration bait. The Obama plan is something that might pass as a Monty Python script. Republicans were supposed to vote it down, giving Obama a scapegoat for the Middle East disaster that is his so called foreign policy. They gave him what he asked for, not what he wanted, and shoved the plan back down his throat to choke upon. Obama will learn that foreign policy is not some political game controlled by daily polling, but a very serious business controlled by people far more intelligent that the collective administration, and very ruthless in their ability to fill the vacuums Obama creates on the world stage.
