Where there’s no leadership, there is no responsibility Where have all the leaders gone, long time lasting? After reading the book “The Generals,” I was impressed with the leadership during WWII. Supreme Commander Gen. George Marshall and second in command, Gen. Dwight Eisenhower, made decisions to remove unproductive generals from service — i.e. those who were either too old or too set in their ways, who were not aggressive, not battle-ready and, above all, not ...

Clint Green paints a disturbing yet accurate picture our youth's overindulgence with electronic devices. It will likely take more of that anti-social conduct before parents and educators get serious and start limiting their children's use of these machines. We as a society have been much too slow to re-act to the negative effects of these devices on today's youth. I agree that these devices have helped to create a generation of zombies who will fall through the cracks without having the ability to think for themselves or be able to engage their social skills since they are void of any.

Eric Barnes tell the families of the people that Mandela put gasoline soaked tires around their necks and set them on fire about how wonderful and forgiving he is. Mandela was a communist who was on the U.S. terrorist watch list.

Vince should pay attention to the real news. The IRS scandal actually targeted more liberal groups than Tea Party ones. The Benghazi fiasco began years before when Republicans cut the foreign budgets, but let's blame the President for a single misstatement. No one went after Bush and Cheney when they took us into an illegal war, now did they?

pollywog, your points are right on and easily verifiable truths, but I too take extreme exception to how Ms. Sebelius has so far been allowed to slide through. The buck stops with her and she has so far avoided any accountability, save for some uncomfortable moments in Congress. This is the very picture of what's wrong with the Obama administration and the rest of the Democratic Party; an apparent inability to stand up to those who need to be held accountable.
.
Ms. Sebelius, as well as the contractors of the website and those who hired them, should be summarily shown the door. And then sued.

Polliwog. Which of the hundreds of misstatements by Obama. Was it " the murder of our ambassador was caused by an obsolete Internet video" or was it " if you like your health insurance you can keep it" or was " if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor". There are also a hundred more absolute lies by Obama like we will have to most transparent government in history, another lie since Obama is being sued by all of the news agencies who say he Obama is blocking access and running the executive branch in secret. Liberalism another word for liar.

Yes polliwog, Chucky is right. Every point you made is an "easily" verifiable truth. The beauty of being uninformed, gullible, ignorant and simply ideologically dishonest is that you can have an opinion and not care that its based on utter nonsense. How cool is that? Plus, you have the added benefit of even less informed people telling you how smart you are. Can it get any better??????
