18 years later, Truman was as resolute in his decision as he was in 1945.
@BeschlossDC you folks criticizing Truman r unreal. Take into context the entire war - Pearl Harbor & the pacific. It was the right decision. A. Vlavianos. 56m56 minutes ago. A. Vlavianos @avlav9. @Fizzmas702 @BeschlossDC not even. A. Vlavianos · 54m54 minutes ago. A. Vlavianos @avlav9 ...

If you will recall, the Japanese were not completely moved to surrender even after the Hiroshima bomb. The Japanese military was planning a coup to stop any talk of surrender. The Nagasaki bomb was the clincher. Even after that devastating blow in Hiroshima, the Japanese were going to push to continue the war. How can anyone look at that and say he was wrong?

I voted for Cruz in the primary and the Caucus. Can't blame me for this mess.

Before the crash that she blamed on speculators, Senator Elizabeth Warren made a bundle by flipping houses.

Some writers have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins. Society is produced by our wants, and government by our wickedness; the former promotes our happiness possitively by uniting our affections, the latter negatively by restraining our vices. The one encourages intercourse, the other creates distinctions. The first is a patron, the last a punisher. - Thomas Paine, Common Sense, 1776

“You’ve brought a subcommittee together that can’t agree on what time of day it is. We can’t agree on the Affordable Care Act. We can’t agree on the Iran sanctions deal. We cannot agree on tort reform and tax reform and entitlement reform,” Roskam said of the IRS and Justice Department. “But we are all together in thinking [the IRS and Justice Department] are the problem and [the small business owners are] the good guys.”
Calvin Taylor filed petitions with the government asking the IRS for the rest of his money to be returned after it was seized through civil forfeiture.

ISOF is in town, so spec ops teams have been doing demo's all over downtown Tampa. Its really an awesome display of what our teams can do in bite sized chunks.

I have to wonder about the optics of such a high profile display given the recent concerns over Jade Helm and BLM. Trust seems to be at an all time low IMO.
A video showing US Special Forces on a training mission in Tampa, Florida has gone viral after being posted on the Forces TV Facebook page. Footage of the Capabilities Demonstration rehearsal showed ground troops, Navy SEALs, paratroopers, helicopters, RIBs and ATVs all involved in a mock assault on one of the city's waterways. Shot by members of the US Forces, within 24 hours of being posted it had garnered in excess of a million views.

Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump need to watch The LEGO Movie, to understand the failure of central planning.

Donald Trump is currently auditioning for the role of President Business in the real life remake of the Lego movie.

Private companies must do better because they get fired if they don’t. Government never fires itself.
Our next president will almost certainly be Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. But I take heart knowing that America's founders imposed checks and balance

You think Obama is bad, wait until either Killary or tRump are in office. This is what happens when a country continually shoots for the bottom of the political leader barrel, year after year. They hit the bottom every time and each new leader is worse than the last one.

Of course, there is another way but it requires people to think beyond their political party affiliation in order to consider the greater good - the good of the country. It requires people to recognize that there are more important things in this world than simply winning the next election at any cost. Most people simply aren't prepared to make that kind of intellectual leap. That's sad, really, because until the electorate stands up to the DNC and the GOP and demands a better quality of candidate we'll continue our slow downward spiral into the dustbin of history, led by the likes of tRump and Killary.

+ed pluck well your argument for media being false just went out the window. I don't expect them to be right nor report a right count. What seemed like you agreeing with the media bias just turned into an excuse for their miscount and your continued regurgitation of falsehoods.
I expect before you post anything you have an idea of the truth. That's our responsibility.

I was convinced that because insurance companies were required to ask for permission for increases of 10% or more they would be 9.9% every year. I was wrong.

In the last couple of days, Donald Trump has bashed Republican border Governor Susanna Martinez, who is also chair of the Republican Governor’s Association, has mocked Rick Perry for endorsing him (FOR ENDORSING HIM), bashed Gov. Nikki Haley, made fun of Gov. Jeb Bush, and attacked Gov. Mitt Romney. He really hates Republican governors I guess.

But unity, you guys.

Trump has also admitted he used to use aliases, including Barron, which was the alias a reporter recently revealed Trump used to pretend to be his own publicist. This is after, and WHILE, denying he did it. He also waffled on trans bathroom edicts, he fired his own campaign director over a squabble, and his campaign lied about a pending Paul Ryan endorsement.

That’s just the last two days. Yet from among the bloggers and pundits and thinkers and writers and talking heads, do you hear the troops coming together to object to this duplicity, these betrayals? Are big shot bloggers and columnists spending their time demanding that our nominee, our supposed party leader, our standard bearer stand by his word? Insisting that he focus on the enemy for the sake of the election and stop bashing other Republicans?

No. They’re whining about #NeverTrump.
Some folks just can't focus on the big picture and what's at stake.

To anger a Progressive (like TR), tell him he can't legally control others.

Our allies in the European Union are still using cultural and economic protectionism against America and American companies.
 
The same people pushing the colonization of Europe by millions of third world immigrants and open borders within the EU have the audacity to promote "cultural protectionism" against American companies? At the same time, the cultural marxists within the European Union are working to stamp out any remaining traditionalism or Christianity with in European countries. These people are destroying the nation states of Europe and their cultures. They are electing a new people, and purposely destroying their own cultures.
It sounds like a paradox but it is not. The European Union or rather #Eurabia was created not to protect Europe, but as a counterweight to America.
