"true believer" tells truth

"It reminded me of the Cuban missile crisis in the 60s when Kennedy's strong "come what may happen" stand made Khrushchev buckle within a week." Me, too, "true believer."

What in the world happened to the political party of which FDR, Harrry T, and JFK were leaders? Harry Reid, Nancy Polici & John Kerry?

I recently read a book about General Vo Ngukyen Giap--the N. Vietnamese military genius that beat the French and then the US. I think he's still alive. Maybe we could offer him a contract to take over our confrontation with Iran. Something equal to what Howard Stern is getting, about 100 million a year for 5 years, with a renewal option. He, Giap, doesn't have much money these day. Maybe.
