All throughout the 1980's and early 1990's, the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein had a covert worldwide arms procurement network that was used to buy technology and material for the regime's program to develop chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons.
Both the U.S. and Britain allegedly turned a blind eye to the network's activities.

You can criticize the latter but can't deny Saddam's "worldwide arms procurement network".
Get a life babe__and learn about the capabilities of US military and spy satellites. There were no secrets__only lies.

Saddam's military was buying junk from whoever they could and then storing it in haphazardly constructed bunkers around the county while at the same time hoping they would never be called on to use it. The only reliable WMD's Saddam had were the ready to use artillery rounds that Reagan gave him. That's right "gave" not sold and Saddam used much of that gift to wipe out a few thousand Kurds.

What our invading forces found was outdated and improperly stored chem/bio weapons and about 550 metric tons of very low grade yellowcake that took nearly a year and a half to repackage just to move. Oh, and three Scuds one of which might have made it Jordan.

You're nuts and this subject is so far beyond you that it's no longer a source of humor.

Your problem is that the views of the majority of people are increasingly different from the views of old farts like you.
It will get worse until you die. At that point, you won't recognize anything going on around you.
Deal with it.
Yep, and as a former Colorado State Treasure claimed, we are running out of people to tax. Guess what happens when the majority of the responsible tax paying old farts die off. That's right, chaos, because all those "majority" freeloaders are still going to be expecting those government handouts.

Trader Joe, which sells specialty foods products at above-average prices in small, limited inventory stores, is not in remotely the same market as Costco or Walmart.
Costco pays checkout personnel $10-12 per hour.....
I think it's more than that; plus health insurance. Trader Joes has finally come to Florida; the first store was a hit, we have two more opening soon, one on the Boca Delray line and the other in the southern border of Deerfield.

Not familiar with any statement by Cruz, but the President of the United States cannot choose to ignore federal law, and marijuana is illegal in the US, even for so-called medical usage.
So, either change the law or enforce the law.....
Same with ObamaKKKare, which cannot be arbitrarily modified by Imperial decree....
It is always a slippery slope when the Federal government steps in to challenge laws that have followed voters' approval of ballot measures. Nineteen states and the District of Columbia allow some legal use of marijuana.

"The attorney general told the Washington and Colorado governors that the Justice Department will work with the states to craft regulations that fall in line with the federal priorities, and reserves the right to try to block the laws if federal authorities find repeated violations" under the new established guidelines.

"Under the new guidelines, federal prosecutors are required to focus on eight enforcement priorities, including preventing marijuana distribution to minors, preventing drugged driving, stopping drug trafficking by gangs and cartels and forbidding the cultivation of marijuana on public lands."

Cruz, in typical Republican fashion, is pissing backwards. He has absolutely no clue as to how to implement a balanced approach by the federal government that respects the states' interests in implementing laws passed by their voters. None. What a loser.

Finally, with the Iranians showing no signs of releasing the hostages, Carter decided to take a risk. On April 11, 1980 he approved a high-risk rescue operation, called "Desert One," that had been in the works for months. Though the odds were against its success, the president was devastated when he had to abort the mission due to three malfunctioning helicopters. When another helicopter crashed into a C-130 transport plane while taking off, eight servicemen were killed and three more were injured. The next morning, gleeful Iranians broadcast footage of the smoking remains of the rescue attempt, a stark symbol of American impotence.

tells us why a democrat is in the WH.....

Republican strategist Karl Rove asserted on Sunday that New Jersey’s Gov. Chris Christie’s (R) handling of the George Washington Bridge Scandal showed he had the right qualities to be president of the United States.

During a panel segment on Fox News Sunday, host John Roberts pointed out that many Republicans were praising Christie for firing one of his top aides after a newspaper exposed his administration’s role in closing part of the busiest bridge in the world as part of political retribution plot, but President Barack Obama had not fired anyone over the health care reform law.

“I think he did himself a lot of good,” Rove said of Christie’s reaction to the scandal.“I think he did himself some good by contrasting with the normal, routine way of handing these things, which is to be evasive, to sort of trim on the edges.”

“You’ll notice we haven’t been hearing a lot from the Clinton camp about this,” he added.“Contrast both with Bill Clinton and Secretary Hillary Clinton’s handling of Benghazi.”

Later in the segment, Roberts asked the panel:“Where was this media coverage on Benghazi, the NSA or the IRS?”

Columnist George Will admitted that “this was not a phony scandal” because Christie’s administration had used the machinery of government to “screw our enemies.”

“There are reasons why conservatives had disagreements with Chris Christie, I don’t think that the tea party is going to seize upon Fort Lee and the George Washington Bridge as their defining difference with Christie,” Rove opined.“In fact, I think his handling of this, being straightforward, taking action — saying,‘I’m responsible’— firing the people probably gives him some street cred with some tea party Republicans, who say that’s what we want in a leader, somebody who steps up and takes responsibility.”

The Washington Post‘s Bob Woodward noted that the media needed to uncoverthe mindset of Christie’s staff because the decision to close the bridge “came out of that office.”

“So did Benghazi, and so did IRS… come out of appointees of President Obama and Secretary of State Hilary Clinton!” Rove shot back.“The amount of attention paid this week to Chris Christie makes the coverage of Benghazi at the same time and the coverage of the IRS pale in significance.”

still whining about faux scandals. will it ever end?

Dick Cheney's $250-Million 'Get Out of Jail Free' Card

What's the going rate for getting a former vice president off the hook in a major criminal case that involves charges of government corruption and raises concerns about violent wrongdoing and even murder?

If you're Dick Cheney, it's roughly $250 million.

That's the amount that Halliburton and its former subsidiary KBR Inc. are reported, by Nigerian officials and international observers, to have paid to get the government of the African country to drop bribery charges against the former corporate CEO and other Halliburton employees and operatives.

Gates-gate is dead.

Former Defense Secretary Bob Gates, who wrote critically about Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, on Sunday said both would make good presidents.

"Actually, yeah I think she would," Gates said in an interview with "CBS Sunday Morning" when asked if Hillary Clinton would make a good commander-in-chief.

When asked about Biden, Gates also said he would also do well in the role.

"I suppose to be even-handed I would have to say I suppose he would," he said.

Gates, who in his book said Biden was "wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades," conceded that he sometimes agreed with the Vice President. And Gates had additional praise for Clinton.

"The thing that I like best about Secretary Clinton, other than the fact that she has a great sense of humor, was she's very tough-minded," he said.

What don't you understand about the death of the Shah?? If he had died a week after the hostages were taken, the hostages would have been released. It isn't Carter's fault that the Shah didn't die until July 27, 1980 or that Iraq didn't invade Iran until September forcing Khomeini's government to decide it was time to end the matter. Get a clue....repeat, in September, before Reagan was even elected and only after Iraq invaded Iran, Khomeini's government decided it was time to end the hostage crisis. The negotiations had nothing to do with Reagan. He was a stumbling block.
Maybe it would help if you asked yourself a few questions:

Why is it so important to you that a bunch of terrorist would have to like Carter?

Why just minutes after Regan entered office the hostages were released?
