A recent poll found that a high percentage of voters in CA and in TX have a "positive view" of socialism and I have to wonder whether they even know what socialism means.
I know what it means and I have a positive view of socialism. Why do you dislike it so much?

Sanders’s leadership style embodies the populist values, which are different: rage, bitter and relentless polarization, a demand for ideological purity among your friends and incessant hatred for your supposed foes. What the heck is he going on about? I go with your suggestion JQP, although I would...

It barely moves the WTF-O-Meter these days, but corruption fighter Donald commuted Rod Blagojevich's sentence for 17 counts of corruption.
Yeah, that one has everyone shaking their heads. Was there a lot of outside pressure to let Blagojevich's off?

This Presidents Day, let us never forget the extraordinary men and women serving our Country.
I think it's more appropriate if we remember them on Arbor Day.

Re: The Democrats are down to three?

First off, I think we should stop comparing everyone to Obama - he was extremely unique and will never be emulated Sorry Omar but that's one of my pet peeves... You shouldn't put a modifier in front of "unique". Something is either unique or it's not. It can't be "very" unique, or as you put it "ex...

Where did I, or Carville, call anybody bumpkins?
Well, twice in the OP:

"Ditch the "urbanist" mindset and stop looking down at the "bumpkin" Trump supporters."

"Inspire people - even the "bumpkins" - and they will follow."

Re: When guns attack

Seriously Wabash, think about what you post before you clot up the board with nonsense like that. Endless repetition of meaningless phrases like "thoughts and prayers" or "why do you care" will just get you warnings.

Please stop.

Not according to the Anti-Defamation League. You are confusing two different symbols.

You are referring to the "Blood drop Cross".

Perhaps I should say it's laughable that you would make that mistake?
