    So does anyone believe we should go to war for Hollywood, and their phony liberal execs and stars who make their career out of bending our minds and hammering those who might carry a Bible and a gun?

    I’m not convinced that what we are told by either this Japanese Co or their pawns in our government is reality. I’d be more likely to refer to it as pretending and virtual reality which is what Hollywood specializes in.

    While we worry about Cuba there is a commie faction here that essentially want the same thing for the USA that they wanted for Russia/Soviet Union.

    Some of the commonalities are gun control, political correctness, opposition to religions especially Christianity, pretend to be benevolent to the downtrodden as a power grab before they become tyrannical. They also encouraged a type of diversity and moving around different cultures (I.e Ukraine) as a means to weaken nationalism and unity, and insert their own ideology in local government.

    Our relationship with Cuba does not bother me nearly as much as a Congress that kowtows on policies from an imperial President on amnesty and immigration that are so obviously counter to America’s interests.

    Everything the media publishes is meant to move forward an agenda that is biased. That is obvious with their reporting on illegal immigration, gun control, race baiting, perpetual victimhood of some, Trevon-Zimmerman, Duke Lacross, PC, hate crimes, etc.

    Cosby doesn’t speak in the same group think of the media about race and responsibility. While Cosby could be guilty, the media much prefer hyping that possibility and always dividing us more rather than promoting objectivity.The gender divide is important to the media too.

    They could turn Christ and Christians into pariahs if they wanted, but wait they do exactly that in many not so subtle ways at every opportunity.

    I’m old enough to remember a USA that had good jobs in every community. We made stuff. We had a tax base instead of a giveaway program for those at the bottom and more outrageously those who own our pols on TOP..

    We have our own commies that pushed their globalist agendas, open borders, gun control, diversity. Many were behind the policy that represented 40 yrs of free unbalanced trade with their Chicom friends and others. They waltzed away with bailouts and spoils of public assets and did great harm to the USA.

    Compared to the harm that has already been done to the USA, Cuba is not that significant to me. Be assured a few connected people will make money while screwing America.. They’ll convince pols to give Cuba billions in aid for their crony friends.

    The Rs have their highest percentage representation of Congress in very many years because of immigration and foolish strategic Democratic policies. Repubs have this huge representation only because most Americans want the USA kept as America, and not turned into some third world Mexican etc. country to benefit only the Wall Street thieves.

    My sense is the Repub Party leadership will throw it all away to serve the Party elites. The Repub elites see it differently from us. Their interests are more concerned with getting cheap labor, Hispanic votes in the future, rather than serving the long term USA culture and R voters.

    I have no problem with this. The American gets freed and goes home. Americans get to have commerce with their neighbor. American business benefits. Rush and other Americans can get good cigars.

    If we examined and listened to the various lying media every country has problems with government behavior towards its people. For Pete’s sake we gave (no not “we” but the traitors in DC that we pay and who failed to defend our national interests with balanced trade) gave the Commies in China our economy. China is just as non-democratic as Cuba.

    I never figured out why we didn’t start restoring relations 30 years ago and create commerce and improve relations. Instead handful of ex-Cubans with a chip on their shoulder controlled US policy. Maybe if I was a Cuban that went through it I’d think differently, but I’m not.

    I’ll say again he could be guilty. I’m not beyond believing that anyone (at least those I do not know) could be guilty of anything. I do not know Bill Cosby nor his accusers.

    But instead of depending upon what I’ve come to believe as very untrustworthy media, who make up stories on the fly to suit their agenda against average Americans, I’ll wait for a trial to determine his guilt or innocence, if that ever occurs.

    I’ll start by saying that I despise the new media because of what they’ve become. They represent a consolidated propaganda entertainment machine. They once candidly exposed political, government and big business corruption and that served the public.

    Today they are on a mission to keep average Americans infighting about relatively picayune subjects only they get to pick and choose. To better control they are dropping comments from their “news” articles. Most of the FOX News among others say Comments Closed.

    The media always tends to pit males against females in one manner or another, as part of their divide process. Usually males get the short end in these situations too. It is their game plan.

    Cosby could be guilty but since the victims did not come forth in a reasonable time (and there may be in their minds legitimate reasons) I can’t enthusiastically get behind a media movement to nail him.

    Thanks for replying to my post #7

    To clarify I thought his statement about “black media” whoever that is, was crazy.

    My point was those who attempt to bring charges after such a long duration do a disservice in promoting victim justice. We need to seriously change our culture and justice system if victims are afraid to come forth.

    I don’t know if Cosby is or is not guilty. I refuse to judge based upon what a media that gets profits by increasing the shrill and hype index. They thrive on these types of cases that always revolve around something that they can then use to divide society - racism, gender, trans gender, guns, GLTB, etc.

    Having served on criminal juries, I simply refuse to judge and try people based upon what the entertainment media says, be it Nancy Grace or Wolf Blitzer or etc.

But the letter you refer to (post 37 ) was signed and headlined by Daryl Issa - Chairman of House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and only co-signed by Cummings. It’s rare event but sometimes good things for America can be politically unanimous opinions. This is what makes Boehner’s actions so frustrating because it represents overreach.

    Boehner supposedly allowed the same banker lobbies, that we are now back on the hook for on their risky derivative investments, to kill it. But then what should we expect, a government that actually works for transparency for the citizens? Never forget these are the same global bankers that I am still as a Tea Partier PO’d about, because they got to live very high on the hog off our debt, bailouts and Fed printing presses, while the impact to our financial system and economy is still very questionable.

    Today, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and Ranking Member Elijah E. Cummings, D-Md., called on the House to pass and send the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Improvement Act to the President for his signature following its unanimous passage in the Senate last night.

    “The FOIA Improvement Act will strengthen FOIA, the cornerstone open government law,” Issa and Cummings said in a joint statement. “The House unanimously passed companion legislation, H.R. 1211, earlier this year. The FOIA Improvement Act is a bipartisan bill that, after last night’s passage by the Senate, deserves to be taken up by the House and sent to the President.”

    The people (and if we had a legitimate media) need to pit the two Parties against each other based upon how well they can lead by transparency and by exposing corruption and fraud. The political corruption is at the root of what is tearing our country down.

    Now we are adding more immigrants from Latin America that are more adept at accepting corrupt governments than fighting it. That’s probably part of the amnesty rationale by the connected elites.

    All these things where we're kept in the dark like the IRS, Benghazi, HUD need FOIA reform where the government is forced to disclose what went on. This bill would have helped in that regard. Boehner didn't want that openess requirement and thus stymied a bill that had already been passed unanimously. He obviously doesn't work for honest government or the people. It's a club and the doors are kept sealed to those who pay the bills.

    “Escalating widespread distrust of government at all levels, causing massive cracks in our foundation.

    Sums up what I too feel, el perfecto”

    While the American D/R sheep are conditioned to argue about relatively insignificant minor stuff, our nation is being corrupted and lost by the political elites and their benefactors, from the outside in and inside out.

    Our most significant problem in America is not politics, but political corruption and it runs from bottom to top.

    This isn’t about race or politics or left or right.

    It’s about public servants who should be protecting and defending overstepping their authority, and taking public lives or their pets, etc in the process. I no longer make excuses for law enforcement even though they have a tough job dealing with the dregs of society. They get paid well and they retire damn well, which is more than many taxpaying Americans get.

    My views are that police that are incompetent, that shoot the wrong person at the wrong house, or obviously over step their bounds need charged criminally. Their pension funds needs assessed if taxpayers are put on the hook for their actions. They need held civilly liable too just as most Americans are if they do something negligent that hurts others while doing their job. No more excuses.

    This is directed to all of us. Call me Scrooge but I think Americans would be better served to tell the merchants to stuff their Christmas (that can’t be called “Christmas”) hype and greed where the sun doesn’t shine..

    We’d all be better off doing something kind and helpful for others, than wasting our money buying Chinese stuff that we usually don’t need just to impress others that could care less.. Most of what we spend ends up as debt to China and less for our retirement. I hate to see Americans led around by propaganda and advertising.

    There was a time when countries represented singular if not similar cultures with the same language and religions and the inhabitants/tribes had common bonds.. The borders defined these common cultures where people lived with minimal ethnic friction. They had wars but they were beyond their borders.

    The political and academic elites push for multiculturalism because they use it to advance their own interests by playing people against each other. My concern is they plan on using it in the USA when they feel the time is ripe for turmoil. They can use their spin and media to turn us into anarchy and the Balkans so they can then plunder all of us as happened in many countries before. They want us unarmed too so that they can easily fund and pick winners.

    I have a shop full of tools and tool boxes from welders to chain saws to plumbing tools to automotive and I used to do everything. I no longer enjoy working in contortionist positions like you may need to do under the sink, dealing with counter heights, drain line, garbage disposal adapters, etc..

    These types of one off jobs for you, (not the pros) often take more time than you ever expect.. As others have said the pros will get in and out and take the old unit along, and if something goes wrong you are not in the middle..

    Have the store arrange for install. My 2 cents.
