    I don’t think Putin will yield anything. He is one of the wealthiest men in Russia. Like our own, he will stay his course no matter how much his economy or people will suffer.

    Lisa’s ‘toon is reminiscent of Herblock’s ‘toon of Richard Nixon, clad as Marco Polo, approaching China on an elephant.
    (I wish I knew how to get Herblock’s drawing here. I tried to COPY it, but it won’t paste here! I still have much to learn about computers.)

    “….solving real problems that affect middle class America.”

    Sorry Ted: Not enough money in that! (for THEM, that is.)

    Perhaps because Fidel and Kim did not want them to change.
    Islam, on the other hand,……

    I know I’m butting in, but here’s my two cents. I have long preached to younger folks to NOT get their history from cable TV, or the internet. Today, I’ve even seen enough distortions, continued myths and outright historical fabrications, even sometimes on PBS, that mis-inform people about world events. Well, I think the same now applies to science. We’ve got all these shows about alien guidance of man’s creation and destiny. I do not discount the basic possibilities, but some of these shows, just to stay on the air (cable) keep making more and more claims, to the point of absudity. “Learning” your history, or science from the flat-screen is no substitue for selecting a well-researched BOOK, or perhaps attending a lecture from a person who has done research in the laboratories, or first-hand sources.
    In addition to this, I believe that the Republicans brought creationism, and all kinds of other Biblical claims into public “discussion” only in the effort to court the votes of the south & the bible-belt states.

    The integrity of the Adams clan, from before the Revolution up through the Civil War and beyond, is unquestioned. Better than anything I can glean from the Bush clan, who put their own, personal desires first, last and always, no matter how detrimental to American society.

    Only last week, I listened to a radio station, from Vermont, carrying a historical discussion about the Diet of Worms, in the 1600’s. At that middle-age meeting, the Catholic Church excommunicated Martin Luther, and banned ALL his written works being read. As it turned out, said one commentator, once the church’s edit was sent out throughout Europe, many, who had not heard of Martin Luther, became curious enough to read his theses. Luther gained many converts. The Church’s ban backfired!

    I also understand this to be true. Simply standing 90 miles off-shore, with his middle finger thrust upward, Fidel gained admiration from many, regardless of anything else he has done.
