I thought this was interesting.

Although, I am a bit curious about the Alaskan source. My friend says he is still working. His ship has been going out regardless of regulations or not and says he hasn't seen anybody sitting around waiting for a permit. That could be a matter of whether a ship is operating independently or as a contractor for a larger company.

It is rare that we find a political figure who is making most of their wealth by actually working. The fact that she is from one of our nation's most beloved families makes it all the better.

You cannot live in the same neighborhood, attend the same kids soccer games, go to the same churches, attend the same charitable events, and work in the same building as another group of people for decades and not get to be friends with all but maybe a few of them.

I can't believe the editor didn't catch this.

I keeping hearing tale that our government shut down is causing the markets to drop.

Let me clarify that the market was dropping prior to the shut down and  despite the drop it will have a record close this year. It will also have grown faster than any other private market world wide. We actually closed with a small rebound Friday.

The market is fine. Well, it's been overinflated since the mid 70s, bouncing of a dangerous region of excess valuation, and has been obscenely volatile since the new deal, but aside from those things that predate Obama the shut down is having a relatively minor effect.

Those of us who invest, we had (or should had) already been sitting on cash waiting for it to drop so we can buy at a discount as we and it always does after reaching a new high and also how it always does at the end of the year almost every single year.

The market drop is a bit more than normal, but our stock values are about 40 times that of the companies they represent and will only reduce next years volatility which will be good for dividends.

Your pensions are safe.

Oh yeah, it costs $1.6 a day to be shut down.

That is much lower than the $10.46 it cost to be open each day.

I think we should fund the nutrition and research projects and let everything else sit. We could be running at 90% for 20% the costs.

This is ridiculous.

This is a huge PR opportunity. We should be promoting that we have a dual citizen in office. Especially for a good ally like Canada.

We could spin this as "we like our Canadian neighbors so much we let one run for government". And Canada would think "that's awfully cool of them eh".

But never mind that, lets be chauvinists. Forget the fact that Canada fought on our side in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Forget the fact that they signed NAFTA with us and Mexico. Forget the fact that they broker deals for us so we can still have a significant market share of the Cuban economy. Forget all the nice things they've done for us over the years like sending us tons of money to help us in times of disasters like tornadoes and hurricanes... which happen every single flipping year.

No, let's just tell them that they are weirdos and we don't want one of their bastard kids in government unless he declares his heritage meaningless to him.

Because that's what foreign policy is really about... pissing on the nationalities of our allies.

Join us next week when the House burns an Aussie flag.

Idiots.

(CNN) - Lest any questions remain about Sen. Ted Cruz's national allegiance, the Texas Republican announced Monday he was renouncing his Canadian citizenship.

He did not strengthen his claim to being a natural born US citizen by renouncing his Canadian citizenship.

If anything, he weakened it by giving credibility to his detractors.

But he did weaken his prospective candidacy by showing he will cave in to media pressure rather than stand on principle.
