Trite but true: There will only be peace in the Middle East when Arabs love their children more than they hate Israelis.
The questions to ask are: 1) What would happen if the Arabs put down their weapons today? and 2) What would happen if the Israelis put down theirs?
But the fact is none of the shooters who killed 19 and shot 50 were pulled over and it's improbable they would have been. If you're going to deal in hypotheticals, cite one with at least a probability of more than 0.001%. I would've thought they teach something along those lines in journalism school.
As we used to exclaim, "OMG". I thought Bennett was incapable of creating a cartoon not critical of Republicans and incredibly he's even created a positive cartoon.
Other than to flip a coin to decide in which primary to run, I'm not sure how Weston's decision was made. Now I understand Mary Headrick's endorsement of Weston. If she can't win, why not have a Democrat run in the Republican primary?
I'm against government subsidized and mandated abortion services but I confess to fanaticizing about what a better paper we'd have, had Bennett's mother ...........................
In the day, I remember having to deal with unions at the NYT. It was horrible to have employees scheming how to get maximum pay for minimum work all day long. I hope the Huns get their act together and locate the new SUV here soon. In the meantime, I'm so embarrassed what the left side of my paper's editorial pages has become, an outlet for socialist claptrap. I spin in my grave daily!
In 2008 the UAW's PAC contributed $2 million to politicians. 99% went to Democrats even though 42% of union households voted Republican. In 2010 the UAW's PAC contributed $1.6 million with 100% going to Democrats. The total spent by the UAW PAC in those two years was over $23 million including what was contributed to other PACs which gave solely to Democrats. But don't take my word for it, to Opensecrets.org.
Painfully predictable: Democrats = Good, Republicans = Bad. It's rare to witness someone whose political outlook is so predictably binary.
"His actions in the Battle of the Ganjgal Valley were no less heroic than General Washington crossing the Delaware in 1776."
Captain Swenson's actions were heroic and worthy of the Congressional Medal of Honor but comparing them to George Washington's defeat of the British at Trenton is the definition of hyperbole.
I know when I was running this paper, Weston Wamp would be lucky to be delivering it, not writing in it! Standards have certainly dropped.
A very very bad idea. I had to join two unions as a summer employee here during the early 70's. The time spent trying to game the system and plotting how to do the least amount of work for the most amount of pay was rewarded when those two companies moved most of their manufacturing offshore. The guys I worked with weren't bad people per se, they were just provided with too many disincentives to be productive.
