There are, they say, wars of choice and wars of necessity. President Obama has embarked on a war of choice - one that will delight some Democrats but could cost others dearly.
Republicans claim it is a "war on coal", a toxic mix of executive overreach and dogma. [...]
Whether he likes it or not, President Barack Obama's trip to Europe will be about Ukraine, Vladimir Putin and American power.
He may not stoop to pick up the geopolitical gauntlet thrown down by the Russian leader. He probably will set out new red lines - warning Mr Putin not to mess with Nato. [...]
On President Obama's watch, one of the most inhumane realities of illegal immigration has skyrocketed: children crossing the border without their parents.
Could it possibly be that the Obama promise of immigration reform is costing lives and creating child-trafficking?
Or do you think this is a case where theory (the promise of immigration reform) gets hammered when that theory meets reality? [...]
President Obama will announce Tuesday that the U.S. will only keep 9,800 troops in Afghanistan beyond this year if the government in Kabul agrees to such a pact.
Is this another case of President Obama telling his base what they wanted to hear so he could get re-elected, or is it a case of a theory (the promise of no troops there beyond this year) getting crushed once it meets reality? [...]

In an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote that would have been unthinkable just a few months ago, the House on Thursday approved a bill to cancel the government’s bulk-data collection programs, including the NSA’s phone-records snooping.
Reading further into this we find that Mr. Obama has once again become flexible enough (read "pressured") to do a complete about face in his position on the snooping. [...]
In a suburb of Colorado Springs, at the Talbott Elementary School in Widefield, Colorado, a young (8 years old) boy was disciplined for .... wait for it ... Thinking About a Gun!!!
What a Crazy way to educate children. You tell them to go outside, look into the sky, use their imagination to "see" what designs the clouds make, then discipline them if they don't "see" what you want them to see.
I say it's time to re-educate the educators and stop putting up with this type of management of our [...]
