Here's what I want to see happen in the media. Stop referring to Bergdahl as a SGT, start referring to Chris Kyle as Chief Petty Officer, or Chief for short. One man deserves to be honored with his military title, which one do you think it should be?
Michael Savage is banned from entering the UK but this swine is allowed to live there? That's insane.
That's not a hug, the first thing you do with a mark is bump into them just before you slide your hand into their pocket to snatch their wallet.
I don't get it. What does "Hands up..." have to do with troops in Iraq? What troops in Iraq? Why did they crash this ceremony? For the sake of goodness, these idiots should be publicly ridiculed.
Pie in the sky stuff here. Congress won't end Obamacare, corporate welfare, or any other form of subsidies to Big Business in America, that's who bankrolls their campaigns. We can't just bring home the troops either. What the hell does that mean exactly? The U.S. Navy protects the world's sea lanes which enables us all to enjoy the fruits of the global economy. Not to mention the deterrent effect those forces have on bad actors throughout the world. The fact we have forward deployed forces and use them keeps the snakes in their holes and keeps tyrants of all shapes and sizes from rising to power. Now, we can and should stand down our forces in certain regions and allow for powers such as the EU (Germany in particular) and Japan to re-arm and that will only happen if we remove some power from their regions and have them pay for their own defense. However with Japan and the rise of China, we should do less removing, more relocating, and encourage the Japanese to reconsider their pacifist constitution. Ron Paul is a washed up political light weight, he's also an insincere hypocrite, and his followers were duped into believing he was something he was not. He was a pol his whole life. He used government to enrich himself and his family. This message has been carefully crafted over time to draw people into his circle of all bark and no bite rhetoric. I'm sure he has an army of family members standing by to collect your donations and to circulate his goofy ideas.
Mike seems like an honest and sincere man but he has a 0.0% chance of becoming the President and I think he is smart enough to know that. So why run? Ron Paul enriched himself and his family with his regular presidential runs with similar chances of winning. Mike Huckabee seems to be following Ron Paul's former footsteps here.

The Ironies of Oil

Cheap oil, it's what will propel the world's economic growth into through the next decade.
Funding the government is the right thing to do politically and from a practicality standpoint. Shutting down the government right now makes no sense whatsoever. However, I am sure Federal employees would love to get a couple weeks of paid vacation again. Seriously though. The Republicans need to grab hold of the power of the Legislature. They get to control the Congress next month. At that time, they have one primary mission. To use their power effectively and they can start by producing a budget on time. That's the true power of the purse. Send the President a budget he has to sign or deny. They will control the committees, they will control what gets put in the budget, they can make their stand there. They can take popular positions on political matters through the legislation they pass. In that way, they will control the agenda going forward.
Nope. They are not mutually exclusive ideas.
Trey Gowdy needs to be the principle party questioning people during Congressional hearings in the future.
