Europeans came to the "New World" and took the land from the indigenous people.

The UN took the land where Jews and Arabs lived and made a new country without the permission of the majority of people living there. As far as can be determined, what is now Israel is part of what used to be Phoenicia. It has been ruled by many different people through wars as the U.S. did in the Southwest. Now Israel is increasing its size through allowing Jewish settlements on Palestinian land. 6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust. Does that give them the right to take over someone else's land?

Why am I singing Crimson and Clover?

And eating Twinkies?

NSA documents.

I have looked up NSA documents over the years. I have a problem with those that have allegedly been declassified. Any report on the attack of a Naval Security Group ship that was important would not have a Secret SAVIN classification. First because it would not have had a SAVIN codeword and second, it would have been TOP SECRET codeword always never just TOP SECRET and not released for a minimum of 50 years after any investigation. Any one on the ship would not have any idea why they were attacked. And since the ships was in contact with NSA and the Israelis would know that NSA was receiving info that they were being attacked by Israelis they knew they could not blame Egypt. Again, I am not taking sides in this because I can not figure out why this took place. Now, I am going to write a sentence that will seem to have no meaning but anyone who served in any branch of the military and worked for NSA will understand and can verify my knowledge of codewords. When I was discharged, I wanted to open a restaurant near NSA headquarters. What would I have called it?

I have never fully grasped what happened.

I figure it has to be one of two ways. One, Mossad's intel was bad. They wanted to attack the Golan Heights and knew that we would stop sending them supplies if we found out about it before they took the land. So they attacked our spy ship figuring that since it was close to Israel it had to have Hebrew translators aboard. They didn't want it to pick up anything about the Golan Heights. That was the bad intel. All translators aboard were Russian translators. Even if there had been Hebrew translators aboard, we also had Hebrew translators at classified land sites so attacking the ship would have been meaningless. Two, it was all a big mistake. The ship had already been identified and it did not look anything like an Egyptian barge. That is my problem, it has to be one or the other, but neither fits. 1963-1967 a Russian translator with the Army Security Agency working for the National Security Agency.

Dumb idea.

Not that I would want teachers to be armed, but I would like to read exactly how many hours of training they would receive and what would the training consist of. When I went for a class to get my CPW in Broward County, it was an hour class and we didn't even have to take a test, written or shooting.

Correct, and it is diversity.

But diversity means variety, the word does not have anything to do with good or evil.

My wife and I are covered by the government.

I have VA and my wife has Medicare and CHAMPVA. 32% of Americans are already covered by the government. I have 6 pages of physical and mental health problems and 15 medications and know that without the VA I would not be alive today.

I don't care if a man wore blackface or was accused of committing rape.

One is not a crime and it is up to the people in the state or district to decide what should be done. The other is a crime and should be investigated. Until the investigation shows that the person probably committed the crime I want a guilty verdict before he is removed. Until it is changed, do what the Constitution tells us to do.

I think that this would be a fair trade.

Congress gives Trump $5 billion for the wall the day that all illegal immigrants are made citizens and Trump and Pence resign. He could say that this was a big win for the country.
