    Exactly. I would never think of switching ring bands with legal cigars in order to bring Cuban cigars back through Customs after visiting certain border countries North, and South of me. Just wouldn't be prudent.

    I think it must have been about the same time other nations with which we have diplomatic and trade relations became democracies.

    The cold war ended 23 years ago. We won. It's time to celebrate its end.

    Haha! After the way this president has been treated I think he wakes up every day thinking of different ways he can piss off the Conservatives. And it's working

    You know, you may be right.

    It's also possible he wakes up every day thinking of different ways he can get the little Skippy's and Scooters who shiver in delight at the thought of him to dash about praising his accomplishments. No question that is working!

    Someone should tell Putin.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Cool. I bet he's counting on it! Probably write another secret Executive Memo as a reward to himself.

    Oh, I think he's beginning to figure it out. The further the Ruble drops, the more obvious it becomes.

    There are plenty on the left and the right that have no appreciation in the way Obama goes about implementing his (progressive) "Change". You see they have a respect for our laws and Constitution and find his flagrant disregard for it by so often making himself a government of "one" very dangerous. Whatever he can't get passed in Congress, he announces a new E.O. to get what he wants. If changing laws/policies were suppose to be so damn easy, our free republic would have never been designed to include a Congress. Just a president with a pen!
