    I understand the reasons for us not to be involved in the Ukrainian uprising. Frankly, a country given freedom will not understand what is required to keep it. It must be fought for and earned. But, when we pledge by our word to support the sovereignty and borders of the Ukraine and then ignore that pledge when Russia invades their land, how can we expect the world to trust anything we commit to? This is a test of our nations integrity and honor. Are we just another lying, stealing, cheating nation or are we the shining city on a hill? Lately, especially with this administration, letting down our allies in their hour of need is policy. Weakening our ability to rise to their aid only gives pathetic excuse to our lack of integrity. Our leader lacks the moral fortitude and courage required to lead a nation of such greatness. Instead we see fear, confusion and abuse of power from him. He is great at vacations.

    I think you have it right and @Crumb-Fighter is wrong. The fourth amendment is about the right of the person not the right of the house. In other words, if there are more than one person on the lease/deed, thee requirement must be that all must waive their right. No one else can waive my right to free speach, religion, etc…

    This is not about guns, it’s about votes and control. If people voted based on logical thinking, Obama wouldn’t be president, our economy wouldn’t be in the toilet, our education system wouldn’t be 2nd class and we wouldn’thave killed 55 milion children over the last 40 years.

    With the ever increasing government intrusion into the lives and privacy of the American citizen, please be cautious of where, when and how we expose our intentions. Those who would destroy strength and freedom are very smart, long-game players who have spent decades undermining our strength and spirit. Know your enemy! Don’t broadcast your battle strategy. Learn who you can trust and work with them. Make sure your strategy engages them at their weakness and emphasizes your strength. Do not play the game by their rules. Be smart. Be vigilant. Be ready.

    Is there something in the water in Fl? They seem to have more than their share of crazy, stupid situations.

    They may start referring to it as PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act), it’s formal full name. We should call it Obama’s Patient Killing Care Act. t will provide much less coverage as policies are cancelled, prices for replacement policies that covers less goes up and we will not be able to afford the coverage/care it makes available. No care for even simple things means some, especially the old and young children, will not survive normally simple things to prevent or cure like the flu, chicken pox and a resurgence of diseases like polio, measles, whooping cough, diphtheria and small pox. We must kill this law before it kills us.

    What is of concern here is not only the threat of confiscation but the incredible disrespect in the tone of their comments. The voters of New Jersey should remove anyone of any party who thinks and feels this way about their constituents. They obviously feel they are above the public. This is the foundation of tyranny.

    The individuals who have perpetrated these mass murders have all broken many local and federal laws. The only objective of such laws is the subjugation of the citizenry to the government, period!

    It’s all about the money. Televisioni used to be suported by the commercials only now you get them and have to pay for access service. Soon we’ll get 20 minutes of entertainment for 40 minutes of ads. I guess I’ll go back to reading books. Oh wait, it cost $40 to $50 bucks for a freaking book now. I used to work for a company whose operating guidelines included “Honor God” and “Make a FAIR profit”. Of course they’re gone now.

    People have the option of being employed elsewhere whrer this coverage is offered, the owner doesn’t. If someone believes this coverage is essential their health, they have the freedom to go elsewhere. There is no logic in this ruling.

    Such a ruling in effect denies Christians the right to own and operate a business without requiring them to violate the ethical and moral values of their belief system. Would themselves court require athiests to post a cross above the door of their place of business or require daily prayer for their employees? This is another case of the courts and our current administration engaging in anti-Christian action.

    Thanks East. I get the Patraeus – Kelly connection, it’s the Broadwell – Kelly connction that isn’t clear. Was she jealous or trying to protect Patraeus?

  • November 16, 2012 at 4:49pm

    I am missing something here. Why was Broadwell sending email to Kelly? There seems to be no connection here. If this is a setup, it’s got to be one of the worst. It makes no sense!

    So once again we are supposed to buy into the story that portrays the CIA as a bunch of incompetent bunglers and the poor administration is left out of the loop and not responsible for any of this. Bovine excrement! Somebody is hiding something. That is very obvious. We cannot trust this administration. Vote them out.

    Most people don’t have a clue what they pay in hidden taxes. When you don’t pay them directly, it doesn’t feel like you are paying them. When a business pays taxes, whether it is corporate income tax, unemployment tax, the half of the social security and medicare taxes for each employee, inventory tax, etc. it will pass those on to the consumer through the cost of the goods or services they sell. The other maddening thing is the hidden tax increases. Every time a credit or deduction that you are eligible for is removed, it increases the net tax you pay. So whether the government increases your tax rate or decreases the credits and deductions, they are raising taxes.

    Can we survive four more months of this complete incompetence? Even Dumbo Joe would be better.

    BECKISTHEKING: You speak like someone who is deeply afraid that there might be a higher power who will judge your ability to lead a moral life. Some can do a decent job of leading a virtuous life but no one can do that perfectly. But that is for you to struggle with personally. That aside, I don’t believe I spoke of the issue from the religious perspective. I see you recognize the seven sins and virtues, but I never said they were for people of any specific religion. They are not. The issues exist for all of us. How we chose to deal with them is our choice. It’s called free will and freedom is the opportunity to make that choice without government intervention. The reason government intervention is required in this case is to protect the unalienable right to life of the one being killed. That, of course brings us to the argument over when life begins. Scientifically, no one can say for sure. You may not want to agree with that, but if you will be intellectually honest with yourself, you know that is true. There are plenty of theories but no hard fact. We must then, making moral decisions, take the safest position, which is life begins at conception. Because, if we are wrong, we are perpetrating the worst genocide in the history of the world. That would not be a very moral position for anyone to take.

    OK, let’s get real. The true foundation of the abortion issue is moral. There is a fundamental difference between those who base their day to day decisions on the Judeo-Christian value set and those who don’t. To some, it is desirable to choose to feed the base motives of pride, lust, greed, envy, gluttony, anger and sloth while others choose faith, hope, charity, fortitude, justice, temperance and prudence to guide their decisions. This is relevant because underlying all the positions justifying abortion is the desire to have sexual relations without enduring the consequences that oppose other motives such as greed, gluttony, pride and sloth. This covers the 99% of abortions which are convenience abortions and have nothing to do with the threat to life of the mother or victimization. In the case of the mother as a victim of rape or incest, strong social support is the right answer not the termination of the life of someone who is, in large sense, a victim of the crime as well. In the case of survival of the mother, this is truly the mother’s choice of her life or the life of the child. Arguing the logic of when life begins or when the unborn is a human only skirts the underlying motives. For one to change their values from sin to virtue requires a deep self assessment and life-changing decision.

    My comment sent to MSNBC:I cannot believe that any news network would allow the type of interchange that went on between Lawrence O’Donnell and Tagg Romney. The only words that come to mind are disgusting, completely unprofessional and anti-journalistic. He should be terminated immediately unless this is the type of interaction your network promotes. In that case, your broadcast license should be revoked. This was trash of the worst kind. You should be embarrassed.

    Ms O’Brien is the female version of Chris Mathews.
