The chance of every smuggler in that smuggler-rich region obeying this ban on luxury goods for Kimmie is nil. The country that calls the shots in the North Korea situation is China, not the US, because we sold our rights and interest for debt. Fake plastic diplomacy from a small, contemptible president.

I thought this was pretty interesting, too: Court rules boy can't compete on girls' squad

He's not our President. Most of us voted against him, even if the electronic tallies say otherwise. Just ask the 18,000 undercounted voters in Florida in 2006.

There were several newspapers that recounted the votes in Florida after Bush became president. Newspapers that don't like GWB. All of them came to the same conclusion that Bush won by those 500 plus votes. I don't know where you're getting that 18,000 figure from Will, since its been gone over so many many times all coming to the same conculsion.

Gee, PGR, not only are you wrong, but you can't read. Will's 18,000 uncounted votes are from 2006, not 2000.

And those newspapers that recounted came to precisely the opposite conclusion you claim. Funny, that.

Mea Culpa on the 2006 votes. But I'm correct about the about post-recount recounts for the 2000 election.
