The late Sen. Daniel Inouye was remembered Sunday as an American hero whose legacy as a war veteran and longtime senator would be felt across Hawaii for years to come. The memorial service at Honolulu´s National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific was attended by more than 1,000 people, including an emotional President Barack Obama, who had previously called the late senator one of his first political inspirations. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Hawaii´s congressional delegation and a number of other senators, cabinet secretaries and other dignitaries were also on hand at Sunday´s service.

How great for all the senators and their staff, relatives and friends to have to attend a funeral in Hawaii. Check out their attendance at other fallen senators and I think you´ll find that they were just a bit closer to Sen. Inouye in death than in life. I realize this sounds cynical, but how can it be otherwise with this group? They spend on themselves and their constituents as if there is no tomorrow, and tomorrow is coming very soon. Their gig is up, and we´re all going to suffer the consequences; at least Sen. Inouye won´t have to endure it.

It reminds me of Bill Clinton´s behavior at Ron Brown´s funeral. Bill was a shuckin´ and a jivin´ as he walked out of the ceremony, until he saw the cameras, and immediately started to look sad and teary eyed.
He was good at that sort of thing.

As an old white guy, who has no sense of fashion or style for women - what´s up with Michelle´s dress? Is that appropriate for a funeral???

Who cares about the death of some old fogey liberal Democrat senator? All that senator did was vote for more debt, more entitlements, more spending, and more fiscal nonsense. Part of our problem is that our people re-elect these moron senators until they die in office in senility. And then we wonder why we have the problems we do?

Emotion: The only emotion Obama feels is self love, no one else exist.

As for Inouye he got the send off he deserved, with his President doing self worship.

The Senator was a legitimate War hero for that I salute him. His political career is another matter.

I think BO devoted several chapters in his auto-biogs to Inouye, didn´t he? That explains the torrential tears.

Inouye was a legitimate WWII hero.

Unfortunately he squandered that legacy of putting body and soul in harms way to defend the US Constitution. With his lock step support of the Democrat Welfare State Agenda, his uber-liberal politics spit on the very heart of the Constitution.

His legacy is one of massive debt, government dependency, unconstitutional Federal power grabs and indebtedness.

Not a pretty end result for a man who sacrificed so much in War to defend the Constitution.

Re #6´s question about MO´s attire at Sen. Onouye´s funeral -- NO, MO´s dress/sweater is NOT appropriate for a First Lady to wear to a Senator´s funeral, in Hawaii or anywhere else. Nor is the rag tied around her head or her hair style appropriate for a Senator´s funeral. Never, in the history of America, prior to the Obama pResidency, has a first lady dressed in such a disrespectful, unladylike manner.

Last night, Chris Hayes face off against Assemblywoman Michele Fiore over the ongoing saga of the Bundy Ranch. Fiore reminds us why we love TV. (Video) Fiore for the win! The Assemblywoman is feisty, unflappable, stays on message, goes at Hayes hard, and comes out looking great. A terrific segment and a good interview by Hayes, amazingly enough. The best part was when she left him flat-footed right at the end after catching him with the slaughter question. Although Hayes salvages the moment for himself with the barbecue crack.

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies awarded about $415,000 in contracts to a license plate-tracking company before Homeland Security leaders dropped a plan for similar work amid privacy complaints. Federal offices such as the Forest Service and the U.S. Air Force´s Air Combat Command chose Livermore, Calif.-based Vigilant Solutions to provide access to license plate databases or tools used to collect plate information, according to government procurement records compiled by Bloomberg. Vigilant, a closely held company, has received such work since 2009. In February, Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security

WASHINGTON— A Western official says the United States is considering deploying about 150 soldiers for military exercises to begin in Poland and Estonia in the next few weeks. The exercises would follow Russia´s buildup of forces near its border with Ukraine and its annexation last month of Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this week that the U.S. is looking for ways to reassure its NATO allies of its strong commitment to collective defense. The Western official says ground exercises in Poland and Estonia would last about two weeks but that such exercises would continue on a

This week’s POLITICO Magazine contains an uncharacteristic show of gratitude from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to President Barack Obama. Under the headline “A bipartisan message to Iran,” the senator thanks the president for signing his S 2195 bill into law, which prevents anyone who has engaged in espionage or terrorism against the U.S. from gaining entry to the country via the United Nations. “Thanks to President Obama for joining a unanimous Congress and signing S 2195 into law,” Cruz begins his piece.

The 147 people were discovered in a house at the 8900 block of North Bentsen Palm Drive. Border Patrol spokesman Danny Tirado said he didn’t recall the exact time of the bust, but said it was not too long after the 81 people were found in a brushy area of McAllen northwest of Sprague and North 10th Street about 1 p.m. The 147 people detained

A week after the Bureau of Land Management’s armed force left Bunkersville, Bundy and his supporters continue to make the family’s case relating to Bundy’s right to graze his cattle on public land his family has been on for many years.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
