This morning Barack Obama will announce the restoration of diplomatic ties between Cuba and America. They were severed in 1960, when the United States banned exports to Fidel Castro’s young regime and he turned to the Soviet Union for support. The two embassies will probably be reopened within weeks. America’s trade embargo will last a while longer however; ending it requires help from Congress. What begat this sudden cosying? http://econ.st/1JvUKx8

In a broad statement, Univision disputed Trump's account.

“We just reviewed Mr. Trump’s complaint for the first time, and it is both factually false and legally ridiculous," the network said. "We will not only vigorously defend the case, but will continue to fight against Mr. Trump’s ongoing efforts to run away from the derogatory comments he made on June 16th about Mexican immigrants. Our decision to end our business relationship with Mr. Trump was influenced solely by our responsibility to speak up for the community we serve.”
Donald Trump made good on his promise to sue Spanish-language broadcaster Univision over its decision to scrap plans to air the Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants.

Counterpoint to the previous article (which you should also read).
My mother was born 5 days after the start of the bus boycott in West Montgomery, AL. She understood exactly what the Confederate flag represented.

His last sentence is the clincher...."on a government building." I agree with that sentiment and I think most would. I haven't really paid close attention but I hope most calls for removal of the "confederate battle flag" are in that respect. I personally find it having no redeeming value but at the same time I don't think it should be banned outright. Jocularly, it's good flagging for those that might have some learning to do. Lol

Jindal is a disgrace. I am so disappointed that I once considered him to be a saving grace for Louisiana back in 2003. He's a perfect example of recent studies that show money and power lead to lower morality

Story
Tagline
Love learning new things.
Introduction
Dad, Consultant, Cornellian, traditional liberal (it's about free markets, free trade and free speech), avid reader and film buff, youth soccer, basketball, little league coach, tech geek, policy wonk, historian, SF lover, sports fan and even more which at some point I'll get to. I truly enjoy open, tolerant, frank yet respectful exchanges. Love learning new things.

I love to share all kinds of posts and have respectful, intelligent debates and conversations. While many posts will be related to politics or issues of personal liberty and freedom, you'll also find a fair number of other things given my wide range of, at times, eclectic interest. The main thing is to be respectful and have fun. Also, don't be afraid to moderate the comment threads on your own posts (I'm not). If people can't be polite and civil, don't be afraid to block them. Being open to conflicting and different ideas does not mean you have to accept rudeness.

Grew up back East in NYC, engineer and ROTC in college, though now live on the West Coast and have lived and traveled all over the world as a kid and an adult (if i can just get to Antarctica, I can nail down every continent). Member, Pacific Council on International Policy.
