Posted on 07/17/14 at 05:55 pm in response to Poll: 68 percent of Republicans say Obama should be impeached

"Col. North emerged a hero from those proceedings."

Only to the most partisan and least-informed among us. He engaged in criminal conduct and tried to wrap himself in a flag to excuse it.

Posted on 07/15/14 at 02:18 pm in response to Senate candidate Mike McFadden's 'groin gate' ad named best of summer

So just who is it who finds this commercial so appealing? Obviously nobody here. It's just stupid and certainly has nothing to do with anything I care about in politics.

Just tell 'em it's TRUVIA. In your coffee. Good grief.

"Like the financial crisis, Obama inherited a mess in Iraq and made it worse."

Hello? Try getting your news from more than one source. In case you hadn't noticed, the Dow is up to 17000 for the first time in history - twice what it was when the GOP walked away from the crash they drove us into. If you think the present day is worse financially than 2008 I have to wonder what you're smoking.

So, it's cheaper to pay for the (still covered) prenatal care, delivery care, postnatal care, and the public cost of sheltering and educating a unwanted child, than to pay for birth control? I hope whatever you're smoking isn't covered by your insurance.

Helmet laws save lives too, but for both helmets and life jackets, we have the inevitable chorus of "nanny state!" complaints. Then these same people will complain about the quality of their emergency-room treatment for failing to take these precautions -- if they survive.

How very peculiar. I'm 65 years old and I've lived in big cities and in some of the more dangerous and unsettled parts of Africa, and I've never for a minute felt I had to carry a gun to be safe. Maybe paranoia somehow attracts the bad guys?

Posted on 06/13/14 at 06:54 pm in response to GOP Supreme Court candidate didn't disclose DUI/resisting arrest charges

Well, she may have refused all alcohol tests (blood, saliva, breath) after the traffic stop, but the next day she did her own tests somewhere and avows that that proves her innocence, never mind that the alcohol would be gone by the next day anyway. I'd certainly hate to see her in any position of judicial responsibility; her behavior smacks of "rules are for the LITTLE PEOPLE" and those people don't make good judges or legislators.

Posted on 06/03/14 at 02:50 pm in response to U.S. role in the world: Neocons want more muscle than Obama Doctrine

Those who call out for increased American military intervention in other countries should be the first to volunteer to go and fight. If they're too old, they should send a junior member of their own family. I'm tired of pointless wars for the benefit of war profiteers, who should be ashamed of themselves, not bragging about it.

Posted on 05/31/14 at 04:59 pm in response to Edward Snowden interview: He seemed calm, articulate and reasonable

Snowden didn't release the names of any agents -- unlike the Bush administration (Karl Rove) who named agent Valerie Plame in print.

I think it boils down to -- who are you gonna trust, the people who lied to you or the one who told the truth?
