Great picture, I love fields of sunflowers. Reminds me of northern Wisconsin with fields of sunflowers as far as the eye can see.

Obama had no choice and as much as the far left wing of the party hates the tax cuts for the rich it was this or they would have lost their child tax credits and such. In the end taxes will have to rise but this is not the time as so many are just barely hanging on.

The American people are finally waking up to the fact that by giving up their personal freedoms the terrorists win without ever having another successful attack. The TSA does not make you safer, when has an attack ever been averted on the ground? In every case attacks have been thwarted by passengers or before they happen by the intelligence community.

Wow the Pope actually admitted that condoms prevent AIDS? That's amazing, wasn't it just last year he was saying condoms in Africa did nothing to prevent AIDS? The really funny thing is the circumstance and mentioning male prostitutes. So no problem with male prostitution but condoms, well we're still a little worried about the moral issues.

Wow that's what happens when you get a conservative government, what a bunch of kill joys. By the way tourism will suffer, I have friends in Gernamny who make the trip just for the coffee shops. They also tend to shop and eat meals while in Amsterdam.

I hope Talibani will prevail and Aziz will not be put to death. His execution would merely be political points for the Shiites.

I agree with those who say charge by weight. Make it a maximum passenger and luggage combined weight. Let's see I weigh about 170lbs and my 2 suitcases at 40lbs each that comes out to 250lbs. I'll let the airline decide what the upcharge over that weight is.

lostrune2: Sadly my senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, the only senator to vote against the Patriot Act was defeated in the recent election. My countrymen are too fooled to ever repeal the Patriot Act, they believe the shrieking that there's a Jihadi in every boarding line.

The TSA and their over the top scanning does nothing to make you safer. The only thing that stops terrorists is good intelligence. Name one time anyone has been apprehended at the airport.

Still a world power but a falling one like the US and Japan. We 1st world nations made China what it is and made millionaires and billionaires in the process while gutting our middle classes. The greatest experiment in market economy known as "globilization" has decimated our societies and economies. Help us all China will be our master unless we change directions and protect our own first.

You can argue till the cows come home about the justification for the use of the bombs. The wr should never have happened as it was primarily a fundamental misunderstanding of cultures on both sides. Tojo and his friends thought they could fight the Americans to a truce with Japan gaining territory. They never expected to defeat America just create a stalemate where Japan gained ground. The misunderstanding lies in the fact that the US once attacked was going to fight to victory not a settlement. Of course what precipitated all this was the Hull note and sanctions that America just expected Japan to accept, again fundamental misunderstanding, it was an afront to Japanese pride. It was an ugly war and it was a long time ago. Most of the soldiers on both sides were fighting for the survival of their family and friends or because they had no choice.
