I'll be on the radio this afternoon around 4:30 p.m. on WPEK (www.880therevolution.com). If you have some time, I would appreciate it if you could tune in.
It looks like the United States has confirmed that Syria has indeed used chemical weapons on its people. Now President Obama is really between a rock and a hard place. I don't see how we can avoid taking a more active role in this internal civil war.
Mark Sanford has had a really, really bad week in politics. To be honest, I'm not sure why anybody in South Carolina would vote for this guy. He's already proven that he is more than happy to lie to voters. Maybe he is a changed man. On the other hand, it seems to me that the voters of South Carolina could probably find some other Republican who is lost on the Appalachian Trail.
It has been a little over a week and we still don't have a good idea about why a fire started in a fertilizer plant in West, Texas. Wouldn't it be amazing if we had effective regulations? What if we had regulations which stated that a school or an apartment complex could not be located within one or two miles of the fertilizer plant? What if the fertilizer plant had been forced to place "expensive fire suppression equipment" in their plant which would have snuffed out the fire before it got out of control? What if the volunteer firemen had been adequately trained in such a way that they would've known that it was hopeless trying to put out this fire and instead could have focused their attention on evacuating the area?
Oh, if you're a Dallas Cowboy sports fan, like I am, the thought that the Dallas Cowboys picked a center with their first pick, a center who probably will not start, is so disappointing.
