But what happened is that once Dole became majority leader, he abandoned the very base that enabled him to be majority leader and threw in the NAFTA towell to Clinton. He put a knife in the belly of the very base that gave him the power he had. And now we have the EXACT SAME THING with the GOB (Good Ole Boy) faction of the GOP crucifying Cruz and the Tea Party who were the ones responsible for making Boener the Speaker. .

A couple things. First, Mr. Hewitt, the president DOES NOT WANT NEGOTIATION. He does want capitulation. If you recall when Obamacare was first past, he made comments to the effect that he would pass it NO MATTER WHAT. He WILL NOT COMPROMISE. Second, although I agree with you as far as it goes, there is something else about the whole process, and for me a more important reason to support Cruz and possibly Ryan. It has to do with principle, not something you are a big fan of becuase I have heard your criticisms of those who vote on principal and not expediently. It is this: If you recall the 1994 Republican take over of both houses. The very conservative base of the Republican party was responsible and one of that base's attitudes was antipathy to NAFTA.
the problem with Mika is that she associates loving America with having a dictatorial all powerful central government, a utopia in which she does not have to worry about the consequences of her actions. Where everything is taken care of for her and where the creative spirit, spirituality and self actualization are tied to the needs of the GOVERNMENT.
It's time for people to start filing injunctions against the Federal Government. These things constitute a taking of private property without due process in violation of the 14th amendent.
An example of overreach is the closing of Mt.Vernon. The property is NOT owned by the government, but by a private conservancy. They blockaded the entrances to the property. It is time for the conservancy to sue for a violation of their 14th amendment rights. Taking property without due process. And there are other instances of this where the park is neither owned by nor on the property of the Federal Government but Obama deemed it his right to shut it down. Next he will shut down a Mcdonalds restaurant if he does not like what they did. We had better watch out. The conservancy needs to sue for a Federal Court injunction to remove the barracades.
John: The interesting thing about this column is that, again, the evidence mounts that regardless of the issue, the left wing consistently demonstrates incoherence.
More and more, it becomes clear that the so-called president of the united states is not only not a leader of people, but is a petulant child, the Lord of the Flies, who belongs in a sand box, where he can rule the other children on the playground by bullying. But as a citizen of the United States, I can say a lot of nasty things about Hussein, but the VERY BEST THING I can say is that I am ashamed to be an American with him in the White House. He shames the White House and makes shame of us all, not by his impeccable leadership, but by his example of behavior that any mother would be ashamed of in their son.

Top Scientists Confirm: Humans Suck

Although the science is not absolute, or it would not be science, there seems to be some concensus that man has CONTRIBUTED, in some degree, to the warming of the earth. The fact is, of course, that the earth goes through warming and cooling ages regardless of the animal life, and in fact that natural cycle affects life on earth, rather than the other way around. On a completely different level, the idea that human creation, things that make life better in the short run for us, seems to consistently have unintended consequences does agree to some degree with the author of this article. But in ways not exactly the way he means it. To begin with, we need not forget that it is SCIENCE that has created the benefits we have, ALL OF WHICH, have led to adverse unintended consequences. Perhaps the most important invention in modern civilization is the light bulb. Seemingly an innocuous thing. But studies have shown that because of the loss of sleep that humanity has suffered as a reult of the light bulb, the entire western world suffers stress never before encountered, and as a result a whole different approach to living. This is just one little example. The ultimate problem is the arrogance of man. Scientists, in an attempt to stop global warming, which may have resulted primarily from the natural cycle of the earth, add yet another level of their arrogance in believing that they can, through science, control our environment, to our benefit. The question that these "scientists" cannot answer, simply by the nature of the question, is what are the unintended consequences that will result from their attempts to further control the environment, based on the assumption that the globe is warming because of human beings. Are they only going to compound the problem in ways that they cannot possibly foresee?

The USSR had a constitution much like the U.S. Constitution. But the Russian language wizzards were quite able to prosecute anyone they wanted to by wordsmithing of the sort that the Obama Administration and the Democrats are doing RIGHT NOW.
