Our weekly look at News and Politics. I am no longer surprised at how often the two subjects become meshed. The Amtrak crash certainly brought this to the forefront. I rather liked John Boehners comment about Amtrak has bags on money but prefers to sudsidize food service rather than improve safety systems. I'll bet he would not be saying that had he been a passenger.
Jeb bush and Iraq. Exactly how many positions can he have on the subject?
ISIS takes Ramadi. Is it time to do something about the Caliphate? but who? There seem to be few countries in the region that want to take the lead. And there is little interest in entering into the battle from the west.
