Russia, China empower N. Korea
North Korea cant survive without the help of China and Russia. Also, Pakistan and Iran for their help in building nuclear weaponry. Thats the problem Washington wont admit to. Put the squeeze on China, Russia, and you lose potential allies in an area where they have almost none. Cut off all supplies, and maybe the North Koreans will take back their isolated country to join the rest of us. Its time to serve notice to China, Russia and Iran. Theyre using N. Korea to keep the U.S. off balance in order to maintain their own influence as major players in the world.

Justices shouldnt be ordinary
They say Sonia Sotomayor has an understanding of how the world works and how ordinary people live. Maybe these credentials are essential for a community organizer, but definitely not for a Supreme Court justice.

Cheneys actions were criminal
Dick Cheney: You protest Obama criminalizing your administrations actions. Outing CIA agents, warrantless wire tapping and torture are crimes! You actually want memos released proving torture yielded information Republicans dont get it: The ends dont justify the means. Why talk all over TV anyway and not before Congress under oath when as VP you were nowhere?
