we all need to be hammering our Congressional Reps over this. Light there in-boxes and switchboards up people.
I agree, but do worry whether China would jump in again to protect their client state. China has a lot more to lose these days,but who really knows what they would do.

Can someone with a background in aviation please explain something to me? You would think this question would have been answered what with the constant coverage of MH370, but I never heard it. So here goes.... Why do pilots have the ability to shut off the plane's transponders. In other words, what legitimate condition would exist where that would be necessary. I guess what I'm getting it is... why is this system not automatic and why can it be shut off from inside the plane? Thanks....

I've been waiting all week (somewhat impatiently I'm afraid) for this column. God Bless You Mike, congratulations, enjoy your retreat. You've earned it.

UAW Defeated in Big Upset to Union Labor

I wouldn't do victory laps just yet. This isn't over. The union didn't lose by very much.
Even though you wrote this a long time ago, thanks for this series Mike. I dated a "feminist" that had moved to VA from Denver, CO and after reading these columns I understand her better. I also don't feel bad that the relationship is over now. Every word I said to her, she analyzed for some perceived insult to her, or the feminist movement in general. Every time I was with her, I felt I was navigating at night, through a minefield. I was down in the dumps (for some dumb reason) when it ended, (mostly because she was attractive), but know, especially after reading this series, am breathing a sigh of relief. Thanks Dr Adams!
I'm as conservative as them come, but this still makes me sad. It's easy to blame unions, but they're just working people who took what they could. We would all do the same thing (maybe not strike) with our employer. We'd all take the maximum amount of benefits and pay we could. A lot of those retirees retired knowing they would get a set amount of money, and planned for that. Now they potentially won't be getting that. Some are too old or infirm to go back to work somewhere. I just think its a shame and I blame the Dem party fully for this debacle.
Ok, Posse Commitatus isn't an issue. If invited in by the state's govenor, the National Guard can assist local law enforcement.
