As the Title suggests I am a vet, and proud of it, and proud of all those that wear the uniform of the United States of America. You name it we'll talk about it. Politics, sports and much more. However, I am also very interested in what is happening to this great country of ours, politically and socially...So SOUND OFF PRIVATE!!!

Pretty much speaks for itself, but I will help it along a little...
What you have here is another attempt by Pro-Abortion groups to have their will over the private sector. WalMart, shouldn't succumb to this stupidity. Privately owned stores have the right to carry what they want by public demand. In other words if it is a high seller, you sell it. If it is required by law or laws of the states, you carry it. However, in the great state of MassCONFUSION, there is no such law on the books and therefore WalMart can decline to carry any medication that is not prescribed. If these groups win this "lawsuit" (as dumb as it may be) it will again open the doors as to who controls what in our country, the majority or the "special interests groups". I say WalMart should take on the group and not succumb to the wish of those that support the purpose of murdering an innocent life so they can continue their slutty behavior without repercussions, and I can pretty much bet the ACLU will be in the middle of this one before too long, if they aren't already. Far right I am not, in the middle struggling to maintain some resemblance of moral stability, I am.
Intelligence director: Al-Qaida, Iran, N. Korea are top threats to security

WASHINGTON - CIA Director Porter Goss said Thursday that the disclosure of President Bush’s eavesdropping-without-warrants program and other once-secret projects had undermined U.S. intelligence-gathering abilities.
“The damage has been very severe to our capabilities to carry out our mission,” Goss told the Senate Intelligence Committee. He said a federal grand jury should be empaneled to determine “who is leaking this information.”
His testimony came after National Intelligence Director John Negroponte, who directs all intelligence activities, strongly defended the program, calling it crucial for protecting the nation against its most menacing threat. “This was not about domestic surveillance,” Negroponte said.
Sullivan said she was told by Dean’s chief of staff, Tom McMahon, that a Dean letter to the co-chairs of the party rules committee was not an endorsement of the party’s calendar commission’s recent recommendation to place one or two caucuses between the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary.
Given the wording of the letter, that’s debatable.
But the letter’s content is not what angered Sullivan.
It’s the fact that she, as a member of the rules committee and the state chair, has yet to receive a copy from the DNC and first learned of it from a Washington reporter last Thursday.
“Someone who must be closely affiliated with the DNC sent a copy of the Dean letter” to the D.C. press “before it was delivered to other members of the rules committee,” Sullivan said. She found the leak “very offensive.”
“When someone at the DNC makes a decision to leak a letter like this to the press and not first give it to the members of the rules committee, I start to wonder why I am so loyal to the DNC,” Sullivan said.
