  • Is grass the highest form of life on the Earth?

    Think about it. Many people take great care of their lawns. They water the grass, remove weeds, fertilize it, trim it, etc. all to keep it as healthy as possible. What other life form has enslaved so many others to take care of it without the slaves even realizing they are slaves?

  • Should we punish thousands of Americans in order to punish Saudi Arabia and the Crown Prince for killing Khashoggi?

    That seems to be what people want to do by cancelling the $110 Billion arms deal with the Saudis to punish them. Do that and thousands of Americans lose their jobs when the defense contractors lose that order.

  • Why is it whenever we have these lengthy vote counts, or recounts, the Democrat always benefits?

    We saw it in the Florida 2000 recounts, and we're seeing it today in both Florida and Arizona. Arizona is taking many days to count some estimated 500,000 remaining ballots. Florida was supposed to have mailed in ballots counted within 30 minutes, yet they are still counting them today.

  • Will starting witch hunts against Trump in the House wind up destroying the Democrats in 2020?

    Democrats in the House have already made it plain they intend to start multiple investigations of Trump. Didn't they learn from last September and the Kavanaugh hearings that witch hunts piss voters off? It cost Dems 4 seats in the Senate. Seats they should have held. The same will happen in 2020 if the House Dems go full witch hunt mode. ... show more

    At latest count, the Republican Senate candidate has more than a 50,000 vote lead and 99 percent of votes are in. Are they holding off so the Democrats can manufacture some votes somehow?

  • We are being told this is the most important election of our lifetimes. Do you agree?

    Personally, I think 2016 was far more important than this one. I'm so thankful that America got that one right and we avoided all the damage that a Hillary Clinton administration would have caused.

Or will you vote for Republicans because Trump has delivered tax cuts, regulatory reform a booming economy, the return of manufacturing jobs, better trade deals, record low unemployment for women and minorities and rising wages? Will you vote Democrat because you believe Trump colluded with Russia, and that Kavanaugh raped women, even though there isn t a single shred of evidence to back up either accusation? Or will you vote Republican because Trump has made progress in reducing tensions with North Korea and made NATO stronger by pushing NATO members to fund their own militaries more? Will you vote for continued improvement in our economy and our military? Or will you vote to stop all that? The choice is yours. Choose wisely.

    Some of the cast like Bradley Whitford could come back. He could be Chief of Staff to President Rob Lowe, who was predicted to be a future President in the show. The guy who played Toby could come back. And Martin Sheen and Jimmy Smits could make guest appearances as former Presidents.

  • Will the film They Shall Never Grow Old air in the USA?

    It is a World War 1 documentary, using digital techniques to make the old black andwhite, silent, jumpy and scratchy film look much more like modern color and sound documentary. It is scheduled to air in the UK later this month. I can't find any info if it will air or show in the movies over here. Any news on that?

    Our Healthcare system is broken. It was broken before ObamaCare. It is still broken. Even the way the actual healthcare is delivered is broken. Personally, I think we need to think of Health Insurance like we do Homeowner's insurance. The day to day normal stuff should be taken care of out of pocket, and the insurance kick in when a big ticket illness or injury happens. Then we can supplement that with Medicaid for the poor folks. But I'd even be willing to have an honest discussion about Medicare for all and what the bill would be vs. what we (individuals, employers and government) pays now. Your thoughts?

  • What magic does Trump have in his magic wand? Obama asked what magic wand Trump had to bring back manufacturing jobs?

    Clearly Trump's magic wand was loaded with some powerful magic because in 2015 and 2016, Obama created only 60,000 manufacturing jobs. But in the 21 months under Trump, 434,000 new manufacturing jobs have been created. Bureau of labor info on manufacturing jobs - https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/CES30000...
