    14yo killed by own father at Florida shooting range .....

    Those are, in essence, the four safety rules that they taught us at Thunder Ranch. The wording was a little different though. I picked up some other safety habits as well, I don't recall if I learned them there. The main one is that whenever my hands touch a firearm, unless it is coming...

    8 possible VP options for Trump .....

    I've thought Mr. Christie was the front runner for a while. It wouldn't surprise me if he was not the choice, but I'd still make him more a favorite than any other individual possibility.

    Read FBI director's statement on Hillary Clinton email investigation .....

    I think that's about right; I think it was silly to expect that an indictment recommendation was coming. Frankly, I think this statement from Mr. Comey gives Mrs. Clinton's opponents more to work with than I would have expected it to.

    No indictment

    Holy cow, who calls her the smartest woman in the world? That would be crazy.

    Gross Negligence

    Okay. Then I'd say you've misdiagnosed the problem when it comes to why Mrs. Clinton, the horrible candidate that she is, would be able to get elected - why she's likely at this point to be elected.

    Gross Negligence

    Again, of course she should be easy to beat. Even without this she should be easy to beat. But even assuming that she will win, that doesn't mean that the GOP wanted her to win. A significant plurality of GOP primary voters chose Mr. Trump, yes. But I believe that most of them did so...

    Gross Negligence

    That's the thing. Mrs. Clinton is such a bad candidate - a historically horrible candidate. She should lose by 15 points. But she won't. And just to be clear again: The suggestion in referring to gross negligence is that we think Mrs. Clinton acted with gross negligence, right? That...

    Pound Plunges as UK Votes to Leave EU .....

    Ouch. Ballpark, if you don't mind answering, how does that break out - Europe, Asia, South America, North America?

    Pound Plunges as UK Votes to Leave EU .....

    It's down around $1.30 now. As much as any other measure, I'd like to see some renewed strength in the Pound (and the Euro relative to the Dollar).

    If my last name was Schmidt...

    I'm okay with failing a test focused on remembering names from a TV show I haven't watched in three decades and which wasn't among my favorites to begin with. :lol: Marsha was the only one whom at the time I might have had a crush on (I don't really recall whether I did), so I'd be okay even if...

    FBI Director Comey will address reporters at 11 a.m. ET at FBI HQ DC . . . Developing . . .

    But doesn't a President in effect have clearance? I assume they don't get an official clearance designation as others do - e.g., they don't have to pass a background check. But they get access to whatever information they might need, correct? For that matter, isn't the whole process for...

    No indictment

    I'd be willing to bet that the great majority of the regular posters here (at least those that post regularly on political issues) will not be voting for Mrs. Clinton, even counting those of us who have been critical of Mr. Trump. That said, you're correct in that some laws don't have a mens...

    Read FBI director's statement on Hillary Clinton email investigation .....

    It's not at all flawed logic. I don't understand why it's hard to understand that a party primary is a very different thing than a general election in many important ways. Do you want me to run through various reasons why, and demonstrate in a number of ways, why what you're saying now is...

    If my last name was Schmidt...

    I got 3 right didn't I? I think that's pretty good. I can also remember the name of the scoundrel that snatched the ball from Tony Tarasco's grasp and cheated the Orioles out of their glory in 1996. Culturally that's much more important.

    There you go. So we must have said... okay, if you want you can start protecting yourself.
