    If you don't like the current situation, try and change it.

    Right now it is what it is whether you or anyone else on this planet likes it or not.

    Ignoring reality doesn't make it go away and certainly doesn't change it.

    By posting this article and replying, I'm doing just that.

    I'm not sure if most of the followers of Mandela or Obama know what Communism and it's history entail.

    A good move, and a honorable thing to do for a close friend of our country and a great leader.

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I am in totally agreement with you on this CB.....the Flag is suppose to be flown Half-Mast for Americans who paid the price. Not for other countries leaders nor the Pope. Not because of another stood for Democracy. Like you said.....they want to fly a flag at Half-Mast. Let South Africa and the UN do so. Let them have their stage.

    That's not to say people can't pay tribute to him. Nor even other countries. But, there should be that.....which is given for our own. Our People, our Sovereignty.....and No One Else!

    I didn't know he ran a website and was a good coder? Funny the things you learn while sat in prison.

    Now, got anything genuinely provable please? I mean beyond someone else's nefarious words and fake website?

    Anyone could put up a website in another person's name and concoct words to denigrate an opponent or hated person.

    Like I said Pol, I was just looking at via the numbers and what each could bring to the table in the electoral college. Rubio would be a good choice too as VP in delivering Florida's 29 EV, but I don't think Rubio would ever accept number two. Portman or Kasich of Ohio also, but they more be too close geographically. Linc's idea of Pence is probably better. Way too far out though. I need to concentrate on 2014.

    It seems to be at the Prez' volition

    Foreign Dignitaries

    When the death to be honored is not an American official but a foreign leader, diplomat or other dignitary, U.S. flags may still honor the occasion. In these cases, however, the president must specifically authorize a half-staff display; such displays may also be called for informally, as long as they do not conflict with existing law. This honor falls to the president’s discretion; flags were not officially flown at half-staff for the 2013 death of former U.K. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, for instance, although the president did issue a formal statement of mourning. The flag was flown at half-staff after the 2005 death of Pope John Paul II, however.
