Great to have you back a second time..

I am sure there is more to this story then is being told.

North Korea got what they wanted...a confession.

Obama administration has no balls. They are making America weak and we the people are letting it happen. Some day soon we the people will wake up, but it just may be too late..

Thanks for listening, Julia Pardini from Alamo

HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON

Precisely what do you think that the G.W. Bush administration or a Romney administration would have done differently?

It is that EVERY previous administration, with the possible exception of President Carter, has done more to more to ensure our safety and security than this one. Think about that the next time you plan a vacation trip overseas. Each day we learn that some new country is setting up a new challenge to our security and safety. The list in long. Most recently it is the new Chinese ADIZ. They watch us and see incredible weakness. And snatch a citizen here and there. And much more.

Mr. Doug Miller you are so right...Great post comment.

And for you Sam...when I said wake up folks I meant people like you..

Sam read what Mr. Miller said...he stated the facts.

Obama was not and is not Presidential material...He's a damn good salesman...well maybe I'm giving him too much credit with that statement.

Thanks for listening Sam...Julia Pardini from Alamo
