27 Last Sunday I went to hear a talk by one of the USS USS Pueblo (AGER-2) sailors. He was a QM1 at the time. Lots of torture by the NOKs.

Any defiance was severely punished. Visiting Western reporters helped point out some of the more obscure (to the NOKs) defiance like the Hawaiian good luck greeting.

Yet this torture and that in Viet Nam is never mentioned by the current press on water-boarding.

It's horrible on every level. We release 3 convicted murderers for an innocent civilian and normalize relations with a police state that does not have to reform itself in any way at all.

And the Congress and American people were not consulted at all, but that's just the standard.

The Cuban people are still in chains, impoverished, and enslaved, with thousands still languishing in their prisons.

Horrible from a moral, ethical, legal and policy standpoint at every level.

In a sense, it doesn't matter what you think about it.

I have nothing against the Cuban people, and I've long believed that all this "embargo" stuff was simple posturing horseshit from Our Betters in D.C. With Castro's connivance, the politicians have been playing us -- and the Cuban "exiles" -- for chumps since JFK.

That said, any "deal" involving Choom Boy is going to have a harmful effect on the U.S. He has a long record of kissing the butts of America-hating terrorists. And a similarly sordid record of p*ssing away our money on said terrorists.

This was a deal worthy of Jimmuh Carter. Had a Republican President tried this stunt, his ass would have been impeached within days.

275 With all these Christmas greetings flying around I am fearful of a backlash. Why just yesterday I was down at the mall and a man dressed in a Santa suit was quietly removing his fake beard and dabbing a tear from his eye. I encouraged him to put his beard back on and that I would sit with him on his sleigh for a while. Have courage, Santa!

Agreed. But Hollywood always caves to special interest groups, all the dang time - they make sure what they put out doesn't offend CAIR, LGBT, NAACP, etc. That's how we've ended up with most movies where the villain is either big (White)business, deranged (White) military/defense contractors, domestic or foreign White supremacists, and evil Christians.

But this is Obama, a guy who bows to China and Saudi Arabia, is mocked on facebook by ISIS and the *kid* of a dictator, is publicly mocked by Iran, even mocked by Russian elite (tweets about him eating a banana). If Obama wouldn't lift a finger to save his own ambassador, why would he protect Sony?

Because she didn't see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her. Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn't anything new.

A very fair point. Several survivors and relatives of victims of the Aurora CO theater attack have decided to sue the theater., The only apparant reason being, they have deep pockets and the vicious shitbag doesn't.
