"Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Leave either party in power for too long, and they will be corrupted. Let's sweep out the Dems in favor of the Reps for a few years. The framers of the Constitution believed in rotation in office. It's time to rotate and get some fresh blood in there.

It is obvious that the Democrats over-played their hand in this situation. They had uniformed State Police swoop in to the Board of Elections to interrogate everyone. Really? Justice has been served. The man is out as Commissioner. He has admitted guilt and been appropriately fined. The reaction from the Dems has been akin to killing an ant with a hell-fire missile. I wonder if they realize how opportunistic they look?

A combination of greater enforcement and education would help. I also wonder if the novelty will wear off over time.

Should we be concerned that medical marijuana does not have FDA approval? The sale of marijuana has not been legalized by the feds. However, 23-states have passed laws allowing for the sale and distribution of medical marijuana. And three of those states have legalized marijuana for public use. The most corrupt U.S. Attorney General's office in the history of this country has issued "guidelines" to the states. Apparently, these guidelines are intended to help the states ignore federal law. In the meantime, the State of NY has passed a bill allowing for the production, sale, and distribution of medical marijuana. Something's wrong here.

It's heartening to get advice from a left-wing columnist. I'm sure Mr. Cohen is very interested in the future success of the Republican Party. (sarcasm alert)

Hey McCafferty. I'll ask you the same question we "deniers" are always asked: "Who's paying you to write this nonsense?" Of course, I should be careful. At the Coast Guard graduation two weeks ago, Obama said that people like me are "a threat to national security." Obama. The great mastermind. He wants us to pursue his frivolous passions, just like Mao got the Chinese to kill sparrows due to crop failure. McCafferty - the world is on fire. ISIS is here, trying to behead those who champion the 1st amendment (see Pamela Geller), the Chinese are on the move building islands in the Spratlys to attack Taiwan,, Iran is getting the nuke to wipe out Israel (and us with their ICBMs), Iraq has been ceded to ISIS as they rape teenage girls with impunity, the IRS is the big-bully and political wing of the DNC targeting REPS, the NSA vacuums up every text and phone call my family and I make, AND YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE.

Ron Belli. We are experiencing the calm before the storm. It's not a question of "if" we're going to get hit again. It's a question of "when." And I believe we are going to get hit HARDER than we did on 9/11. Victor Davis Hanson had a great piece two days ago about this very question. I encourage readers to check it out.

Learning to live with fossil fuels is a little bit like learning to live with water. We can't live without it! Man has yet to develop a technology that will allow us to store potential kinetic energy safely, in a 15-gallon tank, to be used at a moment's notice to drive 200-miles with the need for instant acceleration should an emergency call for it. The solar panel phenomenon in our neighborhoods will disappear once the government stops subsidizing it. As for the Keystone Pipeline, and others like it…there are over 2.4 million miles of pipelines in America transporting hydrocarbons. Do people prefer to have these materials transporter via train? Or do they propose to cease the use of hydrocarbons altogether? I'm with you Russ.
