Re: Why the gun industry doesn't like Republicans

Speaking of the gun lobby, the NRA has turned into a real poop-show. LaPierre and North fighting over which one of them gets to skim the most money. LaPierre apparently won.

Re: Changing Democracy

I was wondering how you were going to wiggle out of documenting your position this time. I thought for sure you'd use your typical " Not my responsibility, look it up yourself, it's in in the history books " evasion. But, of course, it is getting a bit worn.a Back to your willfully ignora...

Re: Changing Democracy

What do you mean by "played a part"? ... Good lord, I pretty much stopped reading after this. If all you have is parsing, you have nothing. No intelligent human would not understand the simple phrase I used in contrast to your statement "slavery has nothing to do with" the Elect...

Re: Changing Democracy

Sure, I’m familiar with the 3/5 compromise. I just don’t see what it has to do with the electoral college topic we're discussing. I've always admired your ability to jump from making a thoughtful posts straight into the wilfully ignorant post when you do actually know better. You, and pretty much a...

Re: Changing Democracy

Slavery had something to do with hi, historical revisionism not withstanding. I'm sure you're educated enough to understand a reference to the "3/5 rule." And yes, we can plainly see that there was a reason to over-ride an election. Hamilton said that it would keep someone with “talents fo...

Re: Changing Democracy

Of course I can. Why would the electoral college have made sense previously but not now?.................Luca One, we don't have slave states to protect any longer. Two, it wasn't designed in a winner-take-all manner it is executed in now. Three, it didn't fulfill its promise of having "inform...

Re: Some polling nuggets

So if individuals draw conclusions different from yours they must of necessity be like Jenny McCarthy, ill informed with baseless facts and clearly less intelligent. a What? No?

Re: Second worst title ever

Who said that was Trump's fault? If it happens again, it will be. And seeing how he denies it had anything to do with getting him elected he has done little to prevent it from happening again. And they didn't miss it. That's how we knew there was interference in the election. That's why Obama sancti...

Re: First Charges filed by Mueller

Mueller said he didn't feel the evidence--and there was evidence--was strong enough to prosecute on any collusion related charges. I'm fine with that. Unlike the lunatics on the right still blathering on about Hillary's emails. She wasn't prosecuted in the same manner that Trump wasn't. Now the obst...

Re: The lying sack that is trump's Press Secretary

At her next press conference, each reporter should politely ask her a question. And when she answers they should say, "thank you, now was that a real answer or one you just made up?"
