The statist theocracy infesting this land has, and is now threatening to destroy any / all semblance of security and opportunity.
 -- Mike, Norwalk     
    Strong Man - Saw the world for what it was. We could use a few more like him now.
     -- Elaine, Atlanta     
    Security in the name of the manufactured War on Terror, is anything but security. It is a training exercise to further the destruction of the American spirit and American values. I felt a lot more secure before there were so many secretive police and watchdog agencies with alphabet names.
     -- J Carlton, Calgary     
    Maybe he is speaking of the opportunity to solve the North Korea problem that the liberal statist Harry Truman refused to do.
     -- cal, lewisville, tx     
    When Truman fired MacArthur it was a pygmy firing a giant.
     -- jim k, Austin,Tx     
    J Carlton is right.
     -- jim k, Austin,Tx     
     -- Waffler, Smith      
    People like MacArthur are needed now more than ever these days.
     -- Anonymous     
    Survival is a responsibility, not an entitlement. We are born into a world in which every living creature lives off of other living creatures. Try to fix that, and the cycle of life ends. We are all headed to the grave -- the fear of the inevitable should not be our guiding force.
     -- E Archer, NYC
