You are an ideological elitist. I am sick of hearing the cry about no WMD's. Besides our own foreign intelligence, the agencies of France, Britain and Israel all confirmed the same information that this country acted on. Did it ever occur to you that the WMD;s wound up in Syria where they were eventually used I mean Hussein was given like a 3 month heads up . Do you not recall the use of WMD on the Kurds of Iraq? The shooting down of the plane is but a blip on what Putin has been involved in. The Crimea,providing military weaponry to Syria,Iran and possibly to the new Islamic terrorists in Iraq. Finally the other day the testing of cruise missles in direct violation of the Nuclear Treaty of 1987 becomes yet another ratcheting up of his aggressive behavior. Doesn't the open mike statement to the Russian President by Obama "I'll have flexibility when I am re-elected" bother you. History has a tendency to repeat itself and I hope we are not in a Neville Chamberlain era.

War on women,what a disingenuous catch phrase the left has come up with. The Supreme Court rules against your ideology and all you can do is demonize and name call. The court sides with you,ie. Obamacare,and they are enlightened. Hobby lobby has been providing payment for 16 of the 20 FDA approved contraceptives and was only seeiking relief under the 1993 Religious Freedom Act, signed into law by your very own Bill Clinton your very own warrior on women.

ok climate change is real. But until there is an economically viable alternative to fossil fuel,something a regular middle class guy can use without severely altering his economic status forget it. There are far more serious issues in middle class life right now and all polls show that. Plus we can reduce what ever all you want but without Russia,India and China on board its worthless. And please dont even try and say they are

Okay , okay climate change is fact. Now what? What do we do about the fact that fossil fuels is a thread woven through every bit of our daily lives? It's in our food,shelter,clothing and transportation you name it. There is no viable readily cost effective technology to replace it. Solar is cost prohibitive for the average family. Wind has not proven to be able to mass produce energy in large enough quantities to again be cost effective. You want to stop coal oil and natural gas production (fracking) but what are the economically viable alternatives? Everything you would propose is currently impractical. I know myself and my family already feel the economic squeeze at current fossil fuel prices,what happens if your ideas go into effect.? We descend into a third world economy is my fear. If you eminent scientists are predicting climate doom within 50 years though you can't predict the weather two days from now, where are your great scientific alternatives? Until you " scientists" can come up with the answer the average Joe has far more to worry about then your " facts",.. Oh and by the way you better tell Russia,India and China about this because at the present time if we do everything you and yours propose it won't mean squat without them getting on board. It will just mean the end anyway won't it ?

Great lets do something!! But many of the same reports that state this as a settled science will also tell you that this has to be a global initiative. The United States doing it on its own will only result in a miniscule effective change. Need you be reminded the largest contributors of what you believe creates climate change are Russia,China and India who basically laugh at your science. Ad to the fact anything that is suggested for change places a devastating burden on an already devastated middle class economy. The cost of EVERYTHING in our lives has the thread of fossil fuels woven through it and until there is something created to take its place any radical change will have the effect of throwing us into a 3rd world status which the vast amount of Americans will not go for, in fact all polls show that as far as climate change goes we don't really care! Oh by the way were you aware that NOAA admitted a couple of analytical errors in reporting coldest and hottest months on record? Were you aware the Antarctic ice is at its largest in history? Were you aware the polar bear population has shown increases steadily over the last several years? Were you aware that the Great Lakes water levels have risen over the last five years contrary to "climatologists" predictions of severe depletion? Wasn't also not that long ago in the 70's that climate "scientists" were predicting a coming ice age? It just seems that the whole matter is anything but settled.

The immigrant heritage is ingrained into this country. The difference is these latest waves of immigrants are without control. We have no idea who is crossing the border into this country. One of the most violent criminal gangs is MS13 a strictly El Salvadorian membered gang. We need to know who is coming here. The vast majority of immigrants followed the rules to establish themselves here and also came to employment. What do we do with these people? The humanitarian need is there but last I looked things aren't that great for many CITIZENS here.

Re Ms Millie and minimum wage. Where does it say a business is responsible for a persons ability to support a family.As far as the ability to make oneself more valuable,maybe that should be taken care of prior to entering the job market. Graduating from high school gaining a trade ,not beginning a family until personal ability to support one,don't become involved in substance abuse, keep clear of gaining a criminal record are just a few of the personal responsibilities an individual can attain to enhance value. The jobs in the service industry were always entry level And made for students or second jobs. As a young parent I worked a second job or my wife worked if we felt it necessary to boost our income. It was OUR responsibility no one else's to ensure that our needs were met,not some business,company or least off some government.As far as non working people and government subsidy that is a whole other issue..

Unfortunately it has become a norm in today's America.If you are not a rapper,thug or minority and use the N word your racist.If you are white and are critical of something that is said or done by a minority or God forbid you are a racist. The president has become more Teflon then John Gotti (for those of you under a rock organized crime) and his blind supporters wrap him in this cloak of if your critical your racist. How do you know the intent was racist? Did the thought ever occur to you that people just might not like him,much like the detractors of Geroge Bush used consistent buffoon and obscene parodies of him and others before him? But wait this president is half black so he is protected from criticism in parody or for real.

Mr. Alvarez you are making some erroneous assumptions here. You assume these groups were chosen to prevent some backdoor effort to subvert the campaign law. If thats the case why was that not stated by the administration. Secondly the findings of abuse came from the Inspector Generals office an independent body within the framework of the checks and balances of government. Thirdly lets shift the numbers of the groups called for "special" attention versus those streamlined to approval and replace the Tea Party,Patriots with Green Energy,Free Palestine and I believe your opinion would be drastically different. The justice Dept. targeting journalists doesnt bother you? Now as for Benghazi lets make the ambassador or one of the dead former SEALS a loved one,and you know what Mr. Alvarez? That WOULD make a difference contrary to Hilary and this administration. Put down the Kool Aid and utilize some objective thinking.
