There's light at the end of the tunnel for US economy, but DC obscures the view
Thu May 30, 2013
In reply to: BD-540164 #6.3 There are a lot of you complaining about the immigrants taking our welfare and taking the jobs, and using our healthcare system. A lot of the immigrants that came to Iowa were helped here by big corporations who couldn't find people here to do the grunt work. This …
NRA annual meeting convenes as gun-control debate rages
Fri May 3, 2013
Well you got your wishes. The unfettered gun laws of purchases and the fear that Obama will take away your guns have provided the U.S. with 300+ million guns. It's a little difficult to counteract that amount now, and that is exactly what the gun supporters want.
Senators spar over Boston bombing's effect on immigration bill
Mon Apr 22, 2013
We could do a lot for the immigration problems by eliminating the automatic citizenship for babies born in the U.S. to illegals. Everyone should earn their citizenship. Amend the Constitution! If you want to come here and get our services, then do it legally.
First Thoughts: The NRA fights back - with mixed success
Tue Apr 2, 2013
So is the NRA prepared to offer the funds to provide guns in ALL OF OUR SCHOOLS, and pay for the armed guards.? Schools have enough trouble just paying teacher salaries and providing books. Try re-enforced glass, fewer windows and then locked doors.

What's the problem with money being in foreign accounts. If it's money from earnings made in t he U.S. then it should be taxed. It's the secret accounts to hide the earnings that is the problem. Obviously they want to cheat our government and all the rest of us.
Fiscal nightmare looms at 'bloated' Pentagon

You can be as conservative as you want, but as soon as we even talk about cutting the defense budget, "We will cave into the terrorists, we will lose thousands of jobs in those states that have huge defense contracts, and we will blame the current president for layoffs and being unpatriotic with cut …
First Thoughts: GOP's weak position on the sequester
Thu Feb 21, 2013
Dear Joe in Albany. You sound like a jr. hi student with all of the name calling. Don't forget the sequestration was the idea of Republicans and now they have to bite the bullet. You never mention the mistakes that the Republicans have made.
First Thoughts: What happens if the sequester sky doesn't fall?
Wed Feb 20, 2013
We have the biggest defense budget in the world! With the Wars finally scaled down after 10 YEARS of draining the treasury, there should be enough money to cover future expenses even with the cuts. Of course we still have to payoff the no bid contracts.......Now let's start on immigration reform.
Guns in America: The weapon of choice for criminals, but also a deterrent?
Sun Feb 10, 2013
You defer from the subject at hand Tether. Let the woman decide how to deal with her body, and let God be the judge for that person. She has the right to decide just like you want the right to decide to buy a gun! Don't bring other issues in when talking about guns.
Former Westboro Baptist member: We prayed for people to die
Wed Feb 6, 2013
A lot of bad things have been done in the name of religion. The Spanish Inquisition for one. Hitler's blame of the Jews for the death of Jesus gave him an excuse for the "final decision" and extermination of millions.
