We were at war when the CIA used enhanced interrogation. In war times we should listen to our generals before listening to community organizers.
Obama is the worst president? My choices are Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, who, using their trickle-down economics, caused millions of people to be jobless. I should know. I was one of them.
Never miss a local story.
Being American does not relieve anyone from international treaties and law, up to the president and the vice president and all others involved. I thought America was supposed to be a beacon of light, not torturing and killing detainees. There is no legal excuse.
These pro-torture cowards just don’t get it. There is never a justifiable reason for a human being to torture another human being or, for that matter, any other living thing.
Like the intrepid Sen. Dianne Feinstein, I’m opposed to torture. In regard to Jonathan Gruber, I would be tempted to make an exception. My favorite middle school kids would refer to him with an expression The Eagle will not print.

Research shows “that men really are more stupid than women.” Does that mean that women are also stupid or just less stupid? I think whoever did the research was stupider than either men or women.
Tornadoes in Los Angeles? I blame fracking.
I was just wondering if paper carriers ever throw newspapers at a customer’s door anymore. I go all the way to the street or in the street to get mine.
Because the Shocker basketball game on Saturday was only available on ESPNU, I listened to and enjoyed the radio play-by-play. In fact I’ll be muting my TV and listening to the radio from now on.
