IMHO, the US in 1959 was much better off than today. None of this progressive crap. People were generally more decent and moral.
If I could go back in time, the period 1957-1964 would be my choice. I would gladly give up all the technology and perks I enjoy today to live in that much simpler, more honest time.
Dear Lord those Castro brothers.
Is the Democrat party nuts?
Those two are so transparent. They can’t speak Spanish. One is “married” and by the way they showed so ostentatiously spans of his “wife” and child it was obvious to me that a political meme was being created.
Now they get those two, lisping nothing-burgers both, to come out and tell us we must get gun control.
I live in Rehoboth Beach Delaware. I know a Gay when I see one.
And I really hate being treated like I don’t see it.
Yeah, if Pat Frank was still alive he could re-write the book but it would be much more dark and possibly morbid.
Imagine the scene if it had happened today. Roving gangs of inner city Utes invading the countryside. Illegal aliens from the produce fields of Florida. Displaced tourists from Disneyworld.
Pat would need to move Fort Repose to Alabama!
I find it surprising (not) that these so-called pundits don't understand that Obama is using the tax the rich issue to divide and destroy the GOP. He is not interested in reducing the debt and deficits. Obama wants to increase spending. Are the Reps supposed to roll over and accept that as well since the Dems won the election?
In fact, we have the status quo with the Reps in control of the House. Obama only received 51% of the vote in 2012 down in both percentage and votes he received in the 2008. The Reps should use the leverage it has or lose it in 2014.
Let's go over the cliff. We need a national discussion on the dire state of our fiscal problems. The vast majority of the public has been insulated from its effects. If the public wants the benefits of the welfare state, then they should be willing to pay for it. The increase in taxes on everyone come January 1 will help focus everyone's attention on our spending problem along with our revenue problem. They will have some real skin in the game. I see it as an opportunity for Reps not a calamity. It should be welcomed if our side was smart enough to use it.
We have a $3.7 trillion annual budget and the politicians cannot figure out how to reduce it by $100 billion a year under sequestration. Neither party really wants to reduce spending. We pay $220 billion a year now on just debt servicing costs.
Well, if there was such a thing as reality, you could fire an overpaid/ineffective teacher, and fund two armed guards.
Hillary will be the next President of the United States absent any physical problem. It is as much a lock as anything is in politics. The Dems are now the permanent majority party for nationwide elections.
I like it.
I got a little bit of a broken heart that granddaughter must live with this but so it is.
The union-run public education system; and the apparatchik lamestream entertainment media and its kook cousins in the computer games racket.
As to the latter, I’m always tickled when Hollywood types say that their products have no impact on viewers (and USERS in the case of games).
This same platform for liberal-speak (claiming their carefully crafted images and narratives have no influence over youth behavior) not that long ago persuaded their own moguls to remove cigarette advertising from TV because it was too seductive and led children to try smoking.
The hypocrisy is rank and evokes the olfactory sensation of a walk through a landfill.
Not sure I agree with you about Hillary but could be. I do agree with you about the Dems being our guys for a while.
One of the bigger reasons why this is so is due to a total lack of an opposition party.
Aye, there's the rub!

That was really good stuff on Wayne's part. He handled DNC Dave well.He's used to the drive-by methods of intimidation by now.
I watched 5 minutes of MTP with Gregory trying to hassle Wayne Lapiere(sp) of NRA, Gregory was pretty pathetic, Wayne did well under circumstances
Then I switched to FNS for about 5 minutes probably less, just caught the last portion of the Rick Warren Show.
I am a Christian, I LOVE Jesus, but am afraid I do NOT have very warm feelings towards Rick Warren, I really do not, I do not see him as even being on my side.. I really have no respect for him. Sorry
Franklin Graham is a Christian leader that I have tons of respect for, not sure why they bother with warren, I take that back, for sure I know why they have him.
Rick Warren was instrumental in getting Obama elected the first time, that values charade he held with Obama and McCain, what a joke!
Warren is teamed up with that liberal Jim Wallace guy, really have no use for any of those liberal folks.
Warren says he is “pro life but” should have that on his tomb stone I have no use for the guy, not even sure he is a Christian.
Cant even see a difference between the Presidency of GW Bush and Obama...Warren is a loser
60 million + trumps everything fellow. Really the NEW AGE guy Joel Osteen is much like Rick Warren, wont take a stand on anything, wont say that homosexuality is a sin, when pressed he finally says well it`s not God`s best
And Finally Chris Wallace asks Warren about Christmas, says Newton (where the 26 were killed) colors it for us?
Yes it was a terrible heartbreaking senseless tragedy, but life goes on. Chris thinks every single person watched sickening wall to wall media coverage of it all, I for one watch less than 5 minutes in total!
To put into perspective, far more that 26 children are aborted every morning in almost every stated, Same will happen tomorrow morning.
More than 26 Children die in Childrens hospitals every morning, probably in every state, there was something really deplorable about the media coverage.
No Chris,life goes on
Hillary has a lot going for her. She's bi-sexual,female, communist,has major league crime boss experience just like Jarrett and she hates America!!She could easily be the left's candidate.
Dick Gregory totally losing the argument with LaPierre.
I dislike that guy anyway but this morning he sounds like a dumbbell as he is a dummbbell, bought and paid for.
He holds up something supposedly a gun magazine. Says to the effect “wouldn’t putting fewer bullets in this help the problem”?
Dolt, let us all pray that these media hacks someday go away.
But LaPierre is holding his own and by the American public, I think he will win the national argument.
You can believe the White House called up Gregory and begged him to pounce on that notion of armed guards and provided him with the talking points, as it always goes.
I still think the argument for armed guards at school is going to be damn hard for the politicians to argue against.
Isn’t the safety of our children more important than, say, Planned Parenthood?
LaPierre did mention us sending money overseas and again, what a great sound byte. Americans will consider that Schumer will vote to send money to Egypt by is against protecting our own children here in America?
It’s how the pubs should do. And Gregory, heh,....
.....you sound like the talking head idiot you are.
The biggest reason is the rapidly changing demographics in this country fueled by immigration, legal and illegal, and high minority birthrates. Immigrants and minorities vote Democrat. By 2019 half of the children 18 and under will be minorities as defined by the USG and by 2042 half of the country will be minorities.
Right now government at all levels controls 42% of the GDP. Almost one in every two Americans receives a government check.
