      Coach Roy Williams is the coach of the North Carolina Tarheels college basketball team. It is good to see him support ACA. I’m so sorry the NFL didn’t help.

        I’m happy to see some good news related to my Tar Heels for a change lately.

        Roy is top-notch all the way!

    Does anyone understand how sanctions against Russians who aid Russian government with arms supplies works out in practical terms? I don’t understand how the sanctions work of these are Russians nationals. Hate to be so dimwitted, but I puzzled over this when I heard it and when I read it and couldn’t find the answer.

      Think of it like this Jackie, if you have a bank account that has sanction on it. Money doesn’t flow into and out of your bank account. Now multiply that by the number of people that also have bank accounts that you do business with. In the case of Russia, President Obama is going after a network of people that aid Putin.

    McCain On New Russia Sanctions: Only Weaker Response Is ‘Doing Nothing’

    Does the last sentence make any sense ?

        I am right there with you Layla! Every time McCain opens his big mouth someone needs to remind him to get over the fact that he is not the President. He had his chance and Barack trounced him.

      So what do McCain want POTUS to do? Beside go to war. What would McCain do, what sanctions would he put forth?

        I agree with what you said Layla, because as far as McCain is concern this President never does anything right unless it’s to start another war. If President Obama wanted or needed McCain advice he would have call and asked him. Since he hasn’t gotten the call I guess McCain should get the message that no one want his advice. Like no one wanted him to be President.

      Frankly my dear Cranky old senator, I don’t give a middle finger to the likes of McCain. He throws tough talk, goads, but lacks solutions to resolve any crisis.

      This traitorous comment, from the guy who declared the American economy fundamentals ‘strong’ as it crashed around him, without an ounce of knowledge or understanding of economic fundamentals. After being in the Senate since the LAST Crimean War.

      From the guy who whined last week how disappointed he was that there were no military options in Crimea.

      Anyone who apparently can still sleep at night as he still defends the choice of Palin should have resigned in shame.

    Ukrainian government refuses to remove troops from Crimea, prepares for war

    “In the wake of a March 16 referendum in which Crimeans voted to join the Russian Federation, Ukrainian leaders refused to cede any part of the peninsula, calling on their troops to prepare for war.

    “Crimea was, is, and will be our territory,” said Defense Minister Ihor Tenyukh in a statement delivered at the Ukrainian Crisis Media Center on March 17.

    Former heavyweight boxing champion and leader of the Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform Vitali Klitschko announced that Ukrainian troops would remain at their bases, even after March 21, the end of a peace treaty signed by the interior ministries of Ukraine and Russia.”

    clip

    Earlier on March 17, the Ukrainian parliament voted to allot 6.7 billion hryvnia (more than $600 million) to bolster the country’s defenses over the next three months, and to partially mobilize the armed forces. Tenyukh said that the mobilization was intended to bring the military to “full readiness.” The Verkhovna Rada called for 40,000 troops to be mobilized, calling on reservists to prepare for active duty.”

    I have just heard that the West Baptist founder, Hater Phelps, is dying of untreated AIDS illness and when found out by his flock last year, led to the ex-communication…..and the ban by his church members to even visit him at the Hospice facility he is currently at.

    If true, wow. That would be another rightie Hypocrisy.

    I will search for the story to see if there is any validity.

      GOP Women’s PAC – there’s your answer.

      Would you really expect this person to care about getting facts straight?

      What is wrong with all these GOP women? That woman sounds exactly like Sarah Palin.

    Israel was formed in 1948. Crimea was give away in 1954. Many nations known today were not even nations in those years.

    That is why it is so dangerous in 2014 to be re-drawing maps. How far back shall it go? That is the wickedness Putin is driving today.
