Not sure why I picked this name. Maybe I'll change it back to Aunt Bettie Lou if there's a way to do that. Or even another name.

What do you think? Leave it or change it?

Ecuador Scraps Trade Pact Over U.S.

Threats in Snowden Case

Ecuador, the South American nation considering an asylum request from fugitive U.S. intelligence leaker Edward Snowden, renounced its U.S. trade benefits today, saying they were being used as “blackmail.”

“Ecuador doesn’t accept pressure or threats from anyone and doesn’t barter its principles and sovereignty or submit to mercantile interests,” President Rafael Correa said today in a speech in the central province of Los Rios. What Snowden revealed “is a terrible case of massive espionage, both nationally and internationally that clearly threatens the right to intimacy and the sovereignty of states.”

The announcement comes a day after U.S. Senator Robert Menendez, the New Jersey Democrat who is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he would lead the effort to block renewal of trade preferences for Ecuador if it granted Snowden asylum. The Andean nation has been lobbying the U.S. congress to renew the preferences, known as ATPDEA, which are due to expire next month.

Son, I don't need to pick on anyone... especially someone who claims to be honest but obviously isn't.

Besides, you do all the work for me... and the best part is I don't even ask for it.

Actually, I was getting kind of attached to my old name. Just thought after it had been stolen, I wouldn't be able to register under the same name again.

Think I should try to change it back? Or not.

I value your opinion on things like this.

In the end who ended up being the war monger? Did Goldwater manufacture the Tonkin Gulf Incident to justify escalating VN into a full scale war?
The Gulf of Tonkin incident (or the USS Maddox incident) is the name given to two separate confrontations involving North Vietnam and the United States in the waters of the Gulf of Tonkin. On August 2, 1964, the destroyer USS Maddox, while performing a signals intelligence patrol as part of DESOTO operations, engaged three North Vietnamese Navy torpedo boats of the 135th Torpedo Squadron. A sea battle resulted, in which the Maddox expended over two hundred and eighty 3-inch and 5-inch shells, and in which four USN F-8 Crusader jet fighter bombers strafed the torpedo boats. One US aircraft was damaged, one 14.5 mm round hit the destroyer, three North Vietnamese torpedo boats were damaged, and four North Vietnamese sailors were killed and six were wounded; there were no U.S. casualties.

The second Tonkin Gulf incident was originally claimed by the U.S. National Security Agency to have occurred on August 4, 1964, as another sea battle, but instead may have involved "Tonkin Ghosts" (false radar images) and not actual NVN torpedo boat attacks.

Republican divisions continue ...?

Republicans issued varying reactions to Wednesday’s historic Supreme Court decisions on gay marriage, highlighting the party’s challenge in navigating an issue that has growing public support but remains deeply unpopular within much of the GOP.

As Democrats rushed to hail the rulings striking down the Defense of Marriage Act and dismissing a challenge to California’s ban on same-sex marriages, most Republicans expressed their continued dismay toward the idea of gays and lesbians marrying.

“While I am obviously disappointed in the ruling, it is always critical that we protect our system of checks and balances,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said in a statement following the ruling. He added that it was his “hope that states will define marriage as the union between one man and one woman.”

"While I am obviously disappointed in the ruling, it is always critical that we protect our system of checks and balances," said House Speaker John Boehner, seen in this June 6 file photo.

(Boehner led the House GOP in spending millions – now, unsuccessfully – on defending DOMA before the high court after President Barack Obama announce his administration would no longer defend the 1996 law in court.)

Many Republicans stayed silent but more decried the Supreme Court’s ruling in the starkest of terms.

Conservative firebrand Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., added:“Marriage was created by the hand of God. No man, not even a Supreme Court, can undo what a holy God has instituted.”

Rep. Tim Walberg, R-Mich., warned the ruling put “society itself … at risk.”

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., a potential contender for the GOP presidential nod in 2016, expressed his concern that the proliferation of same-sex marriage would erode “traditional” marriage.

“I would tell people who are for traditional marriage: the battle is lost at the federal level; concentrate on your state,” he said on Glenn Beck’s radio show.

For $99 per year, you get three free rounds and discounts on all other rounds. That yields the $23 rate as opposed to a normal $29 rate.

Don't have any idea. Had posts under my old name too when I first registered. Remember? You pointed it out to me.

One of those unexplained mysteries - like the Bermuda Triangle.

But should I try and change back to my old name? Or does it matter? It just seems a little unusual posting under a new name at first.

The government watchdog that exposed IRS targeting of conservative groups gave a blunt response to Democrats' claims that the agency also targeted liberals: It never happened.

"We found no indication in any of these other materials that 'Progressives' was a term used to refer cases for scrutiny for political campaign intervention," IRS Inspector General J. Russell George wrote in a letter to Democrats.

Democrats have since turned on the IG's office, claiming it is only telling half the story.

But Republicans used the letter, and a House hearing on Thursday, to counter that narrative -- getting the current IRS chief to confirm that, in fact, there's no evidence to date that progressives were targeted.

"So far, the evidence only shows conservatives being systematically targeted by the IRS," Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., said.

Camp pressed the issue as he questioned newly appointed IRS boss Danny Werfel. Citing the IG letter, he asked whether Werfel's own internal report contradicted the claim.

"No," Werfel said, while adding "more investigation" is needed.
