On today's show I read more news concerning the past election, the results, news that Dr. Ben Carson will run for President, some news concerning the Culture of Life and finally news that Obama will finally take the Islamic State Army seriously. Regarding Dr. Ben Carson announces that he is running for President.  He is an accomplished man saving lives, and being a very devoted Christian.  I compare Carson with Jeb Bush and report that I like and respect them both but that unlike Bush, Carson does not annoy the Tea parties which actually worries me.  In the news that Republicans made inroads with Latinos this election cycle.  I have my doubts.   I talked about this on my show, Latino Talk Texas, today. I believe that rather than assuming these numbers in percentages mean more Republican support they actually mean that because of very low voter turn out that there was great apathy toward Obama and the Democrats and that the few voters that actually did turn out were energized Republican voters. Thus, you get weird results in low voter elections.  Then, we discuss the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals has Upheld a same sex marriage ban and that opens the door to a Supreme Court hearing on the matter and I add my perceptions on the issues as a Christian and my understanding of the law.  Finally, I discuss the nature of the problem with the Islamic State Army and am glad that Obama will seek specific congressional authority to address the problems but I submit that, again, it is too damned little, too damned late.  I also mentioned earlier in the show that Secy of State John Kerry announced in talks with China that the USA would not take any position with regard to Chines movements in the South China Sea which should be a headline but was lost in the election drama.  This is a major departure for US foreign policy and will strongly affect the situation with Japan, Indonesia, Phillippines, and Viet Nam.
