North Korea commemorates Memorial Day with it's biggest firecracker ever!

What does North Korea's latest nuclear test show us? For one thing, making a nuclear weapon is not as difficult as we have been led to believe, or as we would like the world to believe. That, depending on the Earth to sustain us has, at best, a limited future. That, as long as we are still here on Earth, international boundaries are not as important as international peace. The best way we can honor our Veterans is to realize that an unending series of wars no way to run an economy is a luxury we can no longer afford. We must turn our remaining resources, our treasure, towards making the world a better place for those living in its poorest regions, for we can no longer afford the ecological disasters poverty, strife and conflict produce. It is now waste not, want less. We must buy local, think global. In my own family, I have found we can cut 25% from the budget, without really suffering. But we can go further. As waste loses its appeal socially, we can expect this to become a worldwide trend, somewhat similar to what is considered "beautiful" in terms of the female form. However now our tastes change faster. Already the auto makers' advertising has decreased and is shifting its focus from gas-guzzling super fortresses to technical intelligence, safety and miles per gallon. We, in the U.S. can eat less meat, and grow more vegetables in backyard gardens and city farms. Backyard composters and even Chicken tractors are becoming more popular in urban and suburban locations. This may not bode well for the current or future GDP but we must remember that the real humanitarians want humans to survive longer than this Earth, (longer than this Sun even).

Death of the G.rumpy O.ld P.eople

It has become obvious to many former and middle of the road republicans that the party can no longer win national elections, and that it is likely to continue to deteriorate. Future challengers on the National scene are likely to be the libertarians, whose already increasing popularity among Regan-style republicans and conservatives that do not share the GOPs recent hypocrytical schizophrenia could be joined by rank and file taxpayers as gas, liquor, parking, local, property, state income and federal taxes, (I know I missed a bunch!) rates rise. One the other hand and the key reason that the Libertarians might win are the greens who can take the far left and even some of the middle of the Democratic party based on the platform that Obama has not moved quickly enough or in the correct direction on the economy, ecological and climate issues, the wars, and the prosecution of war crimes, even against democrats... [QUOTE who="Jones"]Governor Huntsman is clearly a Marxist liberal in the GOP who 'jumps ship' like Arlene Specter did few weeks ago.
Huntsman will get more loans from China to support the money reckless spending madness of the African Muslim dictator China style Barack Hussein Obama.
Governor Huntsman crossed the aisle to serve the Democrats Marxist agenda as a liberal who does not belong in the GOP.
Huntsman is a liberal like McCain who crossed the aisle more than he stays in the other side of the aisle because he represents the other side of the aisle more than he represents the GOP side of the aisle.
GOP will not survive as a party because it is ruled by liberals that represent the Marxist pro-Islamic Dictatorship of Obama and the Democrats and the rule of government over the industry, banks, insurance, and automaker plants like in China.
Crossing the aisle by the Governor Huntsman is similar to the crossing of Arlene Specter, which was another Democrat who failed the GOP from within.
It is time to create a third Libertarian party that will defeat both GOP and the Marxist Democrats since GOP lost its bearing as the conservative party and seem to be non repairable party with no ideology.
