    Kim was an airlifted orphan from Vietnam. Kim is not Honey.

    Comic strip timing is different.

    We didn’t go to war under Jimmy Carter. He wasn’t perfect but he did a far better job than many would assert. Being POTUS is no piece of cake. Presidents are only human. They have monumental tasks. There are also checks and balances. Everything that takes place is not entirely up to the POTUS. I tend to always want to look for a diplomatic outlet for the conflicts we face. However, there will always be a need for a military solution at times. Even the recent incident of a terrorist on a European train reminded us of that just this past week. Thanks to some brave off-duty US service members, many more people did not die.

    Veteran benefits have been under attack throughout the years, regardless of who is in office. The GOP did not support those who served in terms of benefits, instead they overspent in terms of weapons, which serves no one. Jimmy Carter has raised the bar for all ex-presidents in terms of what he has done once he left office. His humanitarian efforts have been tremendous. He has worked on housing for the poor, removing guinea worms in developing countries, fair and open voting practices and many other important issues. At 90, he is now fighting cancer. God bless him. I wish him well and hope he can overcome this too, though at 90, I know it will be an uphill battle. It is unusual for a man of his age to not be battling dementia and incapacitated. Jimmy Carter remains exceptional.

    Walden doesn’t sound like the school my daughter will be attending next year at all.

    When my daughter was in 9th grade, she was in fact required to do independent research for her History class. Off to the Truman Library we went so that she could learn about the Korean Conflict. It can be done by high school students. I am sure that she is just one of many.

    Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid people, it is true that most stupid people are conservative.

    Conservatives are afraid that reality has a liberal bias, as we know.

    Bernie won’t flame out, Trump will. Bernie will just lose. Trump will probably run as an indy then lose. Trump has too big of an ego to not try to be in the race somehow, as he has demonstrated. I was shocked that the black lives matter campaign took over the sanders event. I thought they had secret service people around? Also, why would they target Bernie? It reminds of the occupy movement always going after Democrats, never Republicans? Huh? Some of these people need to realize who is on their side and who isn’t. But that is nothing unusual.
