"The Cafferty File": Mud flying in '08?How should the U.S. respond to a Saudi court sentencing a gang-rape victim to 200 lashes?
The U.S. should respond to it the same way we responded when the Saudis attacked us on September 11th... we should attack another country in the Middle East and accuse it of treating its citizens unjustly. -Chris, Flemington, New Jersey
Jack, This is just another example of the U.S. trying to interfere with another country’s culture. For heaven's sake China has all kinds of human rights issues, yet the U.S. government encourages trade with that country. The Olympics is also scheduled to be held in China. What's the difference? We need to focus on our own issues and stay out of other countries’ cultural differences. -Bonnie, New York
WE will do nothing! WE are in Iraq to protect the Saudi oil. Saudi Arabia is the source of the Bush family fortune. Hell will freeze over before "WE" do anything to upset that apple cart.-Michael, Gulf Breeze, Florida
Rather late to ask that question now, isn't it? How long ago is it that we hocked our humanitarian impulses, our sense of justice, and our national ideals, along with our line of credit -- all to allow us to keep buying their overpriced oil at their price, and thanking them for it. We can't change them. What we should do is admit what hypocrites we are, and change ourselves.-Bill, Medford, New Jersey
What's behind Senator Hillary Clinton's drop in the polls?
Overexposure. You can not stay on fire forever. No new oxygen has been blown into the Clinton campaign, but there is a lot of hot air. The Democrats want and need change, not just the same old political face on a woman to excite this country for change. Obama offers that hope.-Mauricio, Austin, Texas
Jack, The drop in the polls is what one would expect. As time goes on, the public is finding out what she is really about. I'm a Democrat and a woman and knew a long time ago that she was not the way to go. -Anne, North Carolina
I would like to think it might have something to do with the fact that people are understanding that she can be counted on to do only one thing, which is, protect her backside. She is a politician’s politician and is seemingly as two-faced as they come. -David, Palmdale, California
Because people want change and Bush, Clinton, Bush, Clinton is not change. -Kim, Corn, OklahomaShould employers be able to fire people who don't speak English on the job?
YES! You should speak English at work. How else will your employer know if there is abusive or inappropriate language being used? Plus, this is the USA. Speak your foreign language on your own time. -Miyuki
Jack, Yes, English should be spoken on the job. Let's vote the Democrats out of office, beginning with Pelosi in 2008. -Mare, Iowa
I have no problems firing them, I don't even HIRE them. -Bob
