Any republican who goes on a show or debate hosted by Stephi, Candy, or Chrissy is being a stupid member of the republican party.
Hey John F*ing Kerry, The US Constitution was ratified 21 Jun 1788. The storming of the Bastille happened on 14 Jul 1789. What followed was 10 years of back and forth struggle between the royalty and other factions which included periods of general anarchy and "the infamous reign of terror." Stability was finally restored when Napoleon became First Consul in 1799 which led to his consecration as Emperor in 1804. Now how much did you pay Yale to teach you that the French Revolution inspired the US Revolution and Constitution?

I'll take a war fighting homosexual over a straight Wesley Clark any day. The homosexual issue is a RED HERRING designed to promote left leaning officers because that is what most (but not all) of the homosexuals are.

I took the same oath in June 1968. To me the most important thing that is left out is anything regarding "supporting and defending the chain of command, or more precisely the Commander in Chief". When the chain of command and the Constitution are in conflict, the Constitution wins. I hope it will always be so, but I fear that the current CIC is trying to change that with his personal promotion list. Promotions to O-7 and above require Senate confirmation. I have marginal hope that the new Senate will not serve as a rubber stamp as they have for the past 6 years for the CICs preferences.
I agree. The folks that were responsible are long dead. Their progeny have built a successful and peaceful nation. Maybe they feel compelled to be as apologetic on Japan as Obozo is on the US. He'll probably apologize (again) for us nuking them.
Women have ALWAYS (in the USA) been permitted to give up a child upon birth for adoption. In my state any woman can TODAY anonomously drop off a new born at a hospital and give up all parental rights and responsibilities. Abortion was NEVER about being "overburdened with a child she could not afford to feed or clothe" It has ALWAYS been about (a) eugenics (Margaret Saenger) and (b) not requiring a woman to "endure" a few months of pregnancy and child birth.
That is a stupid question. It is kind of like asking "How will technology affect the future of arircraft"? To that equally stupid question I would respond: "It depends upon whether the A/C is designed to carry 600 pax across the ocean, 6 pax into space, or is a home built ultralight designed to carry 1 pax to a height of 500 feet.
Dittos. Me too. My "home" for the first 11 years of my life was my great grandfathers barn which had been marginally converted to a house. I did fine in life and like ole Bernie am worth a few million now. The article also notes the Bernie graduated from the University of Chicago which (perhaps even moreso then) is an elite private University. So "daddy" the paint salesman must have done pretty well too.

Agree 100%. And this is the "tax" that MIT economist Jonathan Gruber was bragging about sneaking through. Surely he knows that NOBODY would be stupid enough to pay it. I guess he thinks the deficit spending Ponzi scheme will work forever.
I'd take 1,000 illegals if we could get rid of those three.
