Re: Democratic debates

Kamala Harris did what she did for over two decades--act as a prosecuting attorney and DA. Biden was not prepared to defend his record. And even worse, he doesn't seem to be prepared to simply say "I was wrong." If he doesn't, his anti-busing stance and Anita Hill hearing will dog him throughout the...

Re: Oil Tanker Attacks

The President said we were "cocked and loaded." The phrase, of course, is "locked and loaded." Something he didn't learn due to his bone spurs.

Now have some fun and google. "cocked and loaded movie" or "cocked and loaded film." Fun stuff.

That he could shoot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue and his voters would still vote for him is the most honest thing Trump has ever said.

Yes, it's an abbreviated commission officer course,the same for doctors, nurses,attorneys and ones with a special knowledge a military branch needs, but you still have to learn military protocol, history, basic firearms, self defense, and yes,even have to do PT. it's about six to eight weeks or so ...

Re: Trump in the U.K. - The Daily Show

There was a great photo being spread around Twitter purporting to show red-clad Trump supporters in London lining up to cheer him on. But alas, it was a victory parade for Liverpool's Champions League victory. https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/uk-news/american-claims-liverpools-champions-league-163...

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.

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 Electoral College.

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 for low intr...
