Mid Day Discussion – David and Goliath, Iran is Defiant

Iran has launched several “test missiles” and shelled Northern Iraq in response to recent sabre rattling by the U.S. and Israel. Iran has also indicated that their “finger is on the trigger” if they are attacked by Israel or the U.S. Do you think the U.S. and/or Israel will be involved with Iran in warfare by the end of this year?

BREAKING NEWS – Obama and Clinton to Campaign Together

Barack Obama’s campaign announced 30 minutes ago that he will campaign with former rival Hillary Clinton next week. This is seen as a step toward unifying the Democratic Party after a brutal primary season.

But it may be more. 

Obama’s campaign said in a brief e-mail that the two former opponents will campaign together for the first time on Friday, June 27. 

 Could this be a ‘test-the-waters for a Hillary V.P. nod????

I’m thinking maybe. What do you think?

In light of the recent flooding in Iowa, and problems with levys in places like Louisiana, and California – do you think Congress should take immediate action on a bill that would fund inspection and reconstruction, if necessary, of all levys in the U.S.?

Mid-Day Discussion – Republicans Block Unemployment Extension

What do think of Republican John Boehner leading the fight to block unemployment benefits extensions proposed by the Democrats, claiming that a “one size fit all” solution is foolish because unemployment isn’t a problem everywhere?
