NSH - I think what Diana was saying wasn't necessarily in direct conflict with your sentiments. But Boomers didn't all take and not give....Civil Rights and anti-war marches were not all self-involved. As for Fox, the Tea Party etc....I find it curious that you want to hang that on Boomers when....it happened on your watch.

He is no more flawed than his predecessors and today I voted Republican. However, we do have a 17 trillion dollar national debt hanging over our heads that he and his party have made considerable contribution to. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to some extent can be attributed to George W. So what else is new?

So the Heritage Foundation no longer likes their plan now that was the Democrats doing the implementation? They seemed to like it well enough when it was Mitt Romney doing the implementation.

"Curious... Very curious..."

Even in movies, the evil doer is usually the cop. And for all the cop lovers out there, no I don't call 911, that is unless I want a bad situation to further deteriorate. LE has long appealed to the bullies and George Zimmerman types. It is the highest paying job that the proud holder of a GED can aspire to, short of working on an offshore rig. Most of the cops I know - on both city/county, state, and federal levels are dirty; the few that are not are dying to retire as soon as possible. I do not fear criminals; I fear cops. I have a more than even chance against a criminal: smarter, wilier, and better armed. Against a cop, I have no protection unless a camera is rolling. And I am a white woman in her 60's. And the icing on the cake? The only sexual assault I have ever experienced was at the hands of a uniformed cop. Thank God for Anonymous. Hack on!

Like it or not, college football is joined at the hip with alumni engagement. At least for most public universities, private giving has taken the place of the state funding that started to dry up two decades ago. I'll be curious to see which major American university is the first to drop football, and even more curious to see what effect that has on alumni donations.

Oh spare use the far left nonsense about "cynical and frankly, patently unpatriotic practice of universal obstructionism -regardless of its impact on the welfare of the American people." The Republicans are standing on principle and have few other options since they are in the minority and, for now, a weak position. Obama has been crystal clear, he will not negotiate, anything. It’s his way or a (probably illegal) executive order is threatened. The Democrat party did exactly the same things and much worse when George W Bush was president. Then they self-righteously declared they were standing for liberal “principles". All they really stood for was hatred of George W Bush.

So-o-o-o-o-o!

After more than a decade of angry lefties frothing at the mouth with wild commentary about WMDs being the big lie of the evil criminal George W Bush who just loved war, etc., etc., etc...

... It turns out that he was right all along, and his forces quietly captured and removed over 5,000 WMDs. it turns out that it was more important to neutralize the threat than it was to win the PR campaign back home.

In a time when our current president is quick to release any details of any covert operation if it helps him politically... and when he instructs you to believe that success happens because he (alone) is the hero, I find this news curious and the bigger picture actions prudent.
