Oct 25th 2012 10:42AM Very cool idea...may want to draw the current POTUS attention to them, remind him of the sacrifice of Americans in the liberation of France. He might stop apologizing...
Enjoyed these allot, thanks.
Jul 2nd 2010 8:41AM I'm not proud to say that i was unaware of the massive humanitarian efforts of this man. I recall seeing him in person and it was impossible not to be focused on his physical presence...a testimony that, deeds speak louder as a representation of a man and perhaps we all need to be more concerned with character more than triple 3's. Great article. Thanks.
Apr 30th 2010 8:25AM Curious to know at what point (what event?) you lost your basic human compassion for triumph over adversity and determined that cynicism was a more effective and representative response?
Apr 29th 2010 8:34AM This man obviuosly has a constitution to match his intellectual capabilities in that his view is long-term. This is the benchmark we should be holding our athelets to.
Jul 30th 2009 2:55PM Just because this reporter didn't plant the question doesn't mean it wasn't planted...she just wasn't the mouthpiece for a pre-conceived question. OK, fine. The major point of this story is the truth regarding Obama's emerging positions on race (among many other things). No President has any business in the events that lead to Gates arrest. He stepped in it but then, spun it into a photo op to make himself appear to be the "healer." If he hadn't "helped the hurt" he wouldn't needed to anything. After hearing the ferocity of Gates' convictions, it is not hard to imagine him as uncooperative, hostile, belligerent, and possibly adversarial to the cop. When that happens, the cops will take control of the situstion before it takes control of them. If anything, Gates is perpetrating a "racial event" by his actions. Suppose now, only cops with the same ethnicity as the suspect should be allowed to confront them.
May 13th 2009 2:59PM I recall that Europeans came here seeking freedom and had no one to hand them anything. But if affirmative action is about balance/fairness and not "getting even" could it be that this has been achieved with the election of Mr Obama? Or does a race of people whose ancestors perpetrated injustice on another people need to suffer equally or pay a penance for this wrong to be righted? Sounds like the Middle East and its obvious how far that approach has taken them...
