Ukraine

Poll: 58 percent of Ukrainians against NATO membership

58 percent of who? Were the pollesters being fair and excluded all those that carry a Russian Passport? Were there as many Western Ukrainians polled as there were in th East? What are the ages of those polled, Were any of those polled under any sort of family pressures from Russia, in other words is mom and Dad living in Russia? What other motives would there be for anyone voting not to look at NATO from all aspects. As you can tell, I am very skepical of polls, and realize that all polls can be biased unless the it is done very carefully and all factors considered. Even the final poll (vote in Ukraine) was biased prior to the Orange Revolution. When one looks at the revote and the percentages for President Yuschenko at that time, it does make one wonder about this poll that is 58 percent against NATO membership. We need more information on the poll and all of its varibles.  (Oct 3, 2008 | post #2)

Ukraine

Ukraine moves to rebuild broken orange coalition

Why would anyone start a story like this, when there is no reliable news source for that area. One cannot believe the Russian news as it is now govenment controlled, started under Mr. Putin. there is no Western news source in the area as they would in all probability be allow in the area. The word PeaceKeepers amazes me, as I was under the asumption that the Russian Military went into the two breakaway areas with tanks and guns a blazing! Peacekeepers? Oh yes, if some one you do not like is dead, they will not complain anymore.  (Oct 3, 2008 | post #8)

2008 Presidential Election

We need change

Well, I must say the Democrats sure did not fillibuster this energy bill in the house, Good ole Pelosi just sent the Democrats home so that they would not have to show there negative vote on a bill to help our energy situation. Yes, as Obama goes, he will certainly take the U.S. more toward Socialism than we have ever been before. He even wants to start a welfare program for the poor of the world. Whew! He is known as the largest spender, in congress today. Uno, number one!!! Sad, but true.  (Sep 8, 2008 | post #37)

2008 Presidential Election

******PROOF OBAMA is A KENYAN******

Obama, has an American Mother, and she could have given birth to the little tyke in Kenya and still be an American. I am sure if he was a Kenyan at birth there would be members of the GOP all over it by now, and even Hillary. So it is not much news to write about.  (Sep 8, 2008 | post #3)

2008 Presidential Election

Cindy McCains half-sister will be voting for Obama

The posters of these last two notes would not be biased now, or would they? How about the Lyda Green, what did she really say? was it out of context or was it out of jealousness? The poor texan must have forgotten about a few Democrats in the last two elections, or is he just being a blogger that wants to make one side look bad without mentioning that both sides have done the same things? Just a thought and wondering why we are all so fired up over Cindy as to my knowledge she has not hurt anyone except for a few bloggers that are very upset that she would not marry them. Sad, but true, sniff, sniff, I feel so sorry for those people on this site that just cannot stand to see anyone get ahead in this world.  (Sep 6, 2008 | post #636)

Ukraine

Political, religious battles loom between Ukraine, Russia...

Hmm, 1020 years of the same church, is that freedom of religion? Could be, but it sounds more like a controlled population. What are we afraid of, by allowing other religions to grow in Ukraine or any other country. I think the U.S. has a really good program with over 50 different types churches offering differing doctrines. It is exciting and if one does not like a partictular doctrine being taught, that person can relocate to another church wihtout fear of being blackballed or critizied by anyone.  (Sep 3, 2008 | post #63)

Cindy McCains half-sister will be voting for Obama

Thank you for showing the world that you do not know your news, Cindy McCain is a class act and yes, she like you, myself and all Americans has made some mistakes in her life. None of us are perfect, so we need to accept others good sucesses with more Grace than I have seen on this blog site. It is really sad what people will say about others that they are jealous of.  (Sep 3, 2008 | post #614)

Iranian leader calls Bush a 'wicked man'

I can excuse your comments because of your age, and I am sure you were not not understanding the economy, when the Prime rates were up to 21.5 percent, there was no homes being built, no logging, no mills cutting lumber, it was devastating, but it was not 40 years ago. Pleas learn a little more of our history before you blame Our President for something that is not correct.  (Sep 3, 2008 | post #2036)

US Military

Russia 'could destroy NATO ships in Black Sea within 20 m...

This is really a silly statement about Russia knocking out all NATO war ships in 20 minutes in the Black Sea. Russia in not going to start WWIII in the Black Sea, In all probability it in general knock out any NATO ships in the Black Sea, but then what would happen to Moscow, St. Petersburg and etc. 20 minutes is a little far fetched, as the auto defense systems would take over and allow retalitory strikes before they were knocked out. This question is so far out that it is not even worth wasting ink on writing about.  (Sep 1, 2008 | post #836)

2008 Presidential Election

Cindy McCains half-sister will be voting for Obama

So who really cares that Cindy McCain's sister will be voting for Obama, there must be some uninformed people that do not know that Obama has associating with a lot of American haters, amd add to that a convicted crook and on and on. How can we as Americans overlook his recent past so easily? So now someone wants to distract the rest of America by saying Cindy McCains sister is voting for Obama? It is her right to vote for whomever she wants. It never ceases to amaze me how many people on these topix blogs attack the messenger when they do not find a good arguement for the message. How sad.  (Sep 1, 2008 | post #538)

Cindy McCains half-sister will be voting for Obama

All Americans should care when a sitting President stand under oath, and lies before all of America. We must all teach our children to tell the truth especially under oath, so that our country does not fall apart and become a country without a government. Sure one can forgive one for using a cigar on the Amerian peoples time, and not taking care of business while in the White House, but not lying while Under oath to all the American people.  (Aug 29, 2008 | post #97)

McCain, Obama say Russia faces fallout over Georgia

I agree with this writer. I also think Obama has no international experience at all in fact a few weeks ago in mixed up our state of Georgia with the country under attack. His great idea of change and bring new ideas to D.C. just failed when he finally had to bring in long time "Older" insider for his running mate. WOW, what a looser the Democrats have, even Hillary has said in the past that Obama does not have the experience to handle international affairs.  (Aug 27, 2008 | post #13)

In the conservative cause for our country. I respect the office of the US President, but I have no respect for the idiot in that office today as he has no respect for our Constitution and he says he did not know anything about Benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRS or the NSA scandals. If any one believes his lies, I have a bridge I would like to sell them, on top of Mt. St. Helens.
