shortly before his own assassination, JFK ordered the assassination of the Diem brothers, guaranteeing expanded US presence in Vietnam...
WRONG.
actual White House tapes show the Kennedy administration SUPPORTED a coup without considering the consequences of Diem's life......

Washington D.C., November 5, 2003 - A White House tape of President Kennedy and his advisers, published this week in a new book-and-CD collection and excerpted on the Web, confirms that top U.S. officials sought the November 1, 1963 coup against then-South Vietnamese leader Ngo Dinh Diem without apparently considering the physical consequences for Diem personally (he was murdered the following day). The taped meeting and related documents show that U.S. officials, including JFK, vastly overestimated their ability to control the South Vietnamese generals who ran the coup 40 years ago this week.

The Kennedy tape from October 29, 1963 captures the highest-level White House meeting immediately prior to the coup, including the President's brother voicing doubts about the policy of support for a coup: "I mean, it's different from a coup in the Iraq or South American country; we are so intimately involved in this…." National Security Archive senior fellow John Prados provides a full transcript of the meeting, together with the audio on CD, in his new book-and-CD publication, The White House Tapes: Eavesdropping on the President (New York: The New Press, 2003, 331 pp.+ 8 CDs, ISBN 1-56584-852-7), just published this week and featuring audio files from 8 presidents, from Roosevelt to Reagan.

To mark the 40th anniversary of the Diem coup, a critical turning point in the Vietnam war, Dr. Prados also compiled and annotated for the Web a selection of recently declassified documents from the forthcoming documentary publication, U.S. Policy in the Vietnam War, to be published in spring 2004 by the National Security Archive and ProQuest Information and Learning. Together with the Kennedy tape from October 29, 1963, the documents show that American leaders discussed not only whether to support a successor government, but also the distribution of pro- and anti-coup forces, U.S. actions that could be taken that would contribute to a coup, and calling off a coup if its prospects were not good.

"Supporting the Diem coup made the U.S. responsible for the outcome in South Vietnam in exactly the way Bobby Kennedy feared on October 29," said Dr. Prados. "Ironically, though, as the conversation continued, he and the other doubters abandoned these larger considerations and concentrated only on whether a coup would succeed - nothing else mattered."

The posting today also includes the transcript of Diem's last phone call to U.S. ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, inquiring "what the attitude of the U.S. is" towards the coup then underway; Lodge dissembled that he was not "well enough informed at this time to be able to tell you."

Why wouldn't you support the elimination of minimum wage? You don't believe in free markets?
Social security is a socialist program don't you agree?
Eliminating minimum wage could have two negative backlashes. Slave labor or higher prices for consumers.

In a perfect world, everyone could decide what was fair and pay their employees accordingly. But we don't live in that world.

No one would apply for the same jobs that weren't as competitive pay-wise as other jobs. Businesses would have to continually increase pay wages to be competitive and increase prices to pay for those higher wages or go out of business altogether.

Social Security is here to stay whether we like it or not. It was the Democrats brain child just like Obamacare and it's much harder for the government to take away than to give.

Look at Greece.

Rep Daryl Issa owned a used car business and shortly before his failing business burned to the ground, he took out a large fire insurance policy on it. The fire was the result of arson, only the prosecutor for some reason couldn't tie it to Issa....a campaign contributor

you can't bring one thing to table that shows that cutting spending while cutting taxes has ever been proven to be sound economic policy. Reagan had to raise taxes after he cut them with the largest peacetime tax increase in American history. how hard is it to see the reality?

Sadly enough, it only means we're still the Dumb and Dumber United States of America.
You can't admire someone you didn't trust only a month ago.
Last month, 53% of Americans thought the president was not honest according to a CNN/ORC poll and only four out of 10 thought Obama could manage the federal government effectively.
Moreover, fifty-six percent of the public last month said he is not a person they “admire” and not agreeable on issues concerning the country.
http://www.msnbc.com/morning-joe/obamas-trust...
So, as usual, a lot of people are still really confused in this country.
You also can't admire someone whose disapproval rating is 49% with only 42% approving and 56% disapproving of his signature law with only 40% approving.
http://www.gallup.com/poll/113980/Gallup-Dail...
http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/lates...
So what's there to admire if the majority don't approve of his job performance as president, don't trust him and don't approve of his legacy law?
Pew....

Republican approval.....35%.

Republican disapproval.....59%.

FOX....

Republican favorable....30%.

Republican unfavorable....63%.

Whatever is running around the thread crying for attention with her panties down around her ankles, posting nonsense, screaming;

"Pay attention to me" "Please pay attention to me!!".

The attention she so desperately craves and obviously doesn't get at home!! LOL

Get over yourself. You've already posted far more times than anyone else - AND That's only this morning!!

You needn't provide further proof of what a lonely moron you are.

I've got the week off for New Year's.

I'm an investor. No mogul, but one who knows the stock market is the route to financial security. I know a lot about investing.

You're a fraud, as I proved so easily last evening.

It makes you angry that the stock markets are doing so well with Obama in charge.

That's delightful. I'll make money, you can whine about Obama!!
