    Dear Hijinx:

    The fetus can definitely feel pain. Which would YOU prefer, a few minutes of being cut to pieces, or a few years of intermittent abuse? I've had members of my own family who weren't great parents - but they actually weren't bad when the children were small, and their needs didn't go much...

    Now we know: it was (and remains) an attempted coup

    And it had about as much traction in the press as the "truther" campaign (that's the one where Bush orchestrated the 9/11 attacks and the "missile" attack on the Pentagon). I'm sorry, but in terms of scope, they're not equivalent. If by that you mean the Trump/Russian collusion stuff, has...

    Border crisis experiment

    Well I am saying that it doesn't matter if it comes up in election years - it's like saying you don't have a problem with weight or blood pressure, because your doctor didn't say so - and you haven't seen him in two years. I've rarely seen in my lifetime a huge problem that Washington didn't...

    Now we know: it was (and remains) an attempted coup

    Really? Where was the press on that? The outrage from the Senate and House? The years long investigations, and the never-ending coverage of it in the press? The marches, protests, the assaults on social media? The constant drumbeat from Hollywood, TV, late night talk show hosts, the evening...

    Border crisis experiment

    You're saying that our government always swiftly addresses serious problems, if they're serious enough? You can't be serious.

    Border crisis experiment

    In any event - it bears observation that the border crisis observed in the past is referred to as such - by liberal outlets. By news sources not widely known for succumbing to pressure from the right. You can go back a little FURTHER - and find all of our favorites decrying the problem of...

    Border crisis experiment

    By the way - one of my concerns about a third party or independent getting elected President is precisely this - unless his agenda aligns with one or the other, all such a President will get is stonewalling.

    AOC - What Is The Berlin Wall

    Neither the President nor anyone else is trying to claim that a wall is impenetrable and can't be defeated - but a good one will reduce the crossings substantially and slow the advance enough that crossings can be interdicted. Prior to the building of the Berlin Wall, millions crossed into West...

    Now we know: it was (and remains) an attempted coup

    I do know that 25 years ago, people I work with were being pressured by higher ups to "modify" some of the economic statistics they publish every month. I'm aware of the sleaziness of Washington. I'm just surprised that someone would admit - and defend it.

    Now we know: it was (and remains) an attempted coup

    I think it's appropriate and useful to examine these kinds of events this way -- Imagine if the year wasn't 2017, but 2009. Imagine if law enforcement and members of the Department of Justice were doing the SAME THINGS - but with Obama. For those on the left - would that sort of thing created...

    Dear Hijinx:

    I'm not sure I wouldn't call being sliced apart piece by piece is NOT torture.

    Border crisis experiment

    My memory was gnawing at me during the whole ad nauseam repetition of "manufactured crisis" mantra - which utterly proves beyond any need for evidence that the left cannot think on its own - and I remembered something. Go to Google. Type in "border crisis" or "crisis at the border". Go to...

    AOC - What Is The Berlin Wall

    Well, certainly not by MEXICO, who would be the corresponding government in this comparison. And the reason was, they did NOT want people to leave. And the smuggling and tunnels made up only a fraction of the total who left East Germany. Estimates for being smuggled into West Berlin are about...

    ‘Ouch’! Brian Stelter tries to pin Smollett story ‘rush to judgment’ on ‘celebrity press, activists & Twitter,’

    Yeah well - don't expect any apologies. https://nypost.com/2019/02/17/dont-expect-apologies-from-the-left-over-jussie-smollett-attack-fraud/

    AOC - What Is The Berlin Wall

    Yes - but not by going over the wall. About 3 million made it - over a period of forty years - but once the wall went up, fleeing to the West by going to West Berlin mostly ENDED. Being SHOT at will do that.

    Government is getting a 2019 pay raise

    I've done both - worked for the government - gone to private industry - gone back to government. My dad did the same, although all things being the same, he would have loved to stay in the Navy for life. As it happens, he worked almost forty years for them as a civilian after working as an...

    In the everything is racist category, nominee is

    At what point in her career would she EVER have been considered a sex symbol. The first time I ever heard of Whoopi was in "The Color Purple". I never actually saw the movie, but having seen clips, I don't get the impression she was cast for her looks. There have been gorgeous black...

    AOC - What Is The Berlin Wall

    I guess they'd be similar IF the Mexican government had armed guards there to SHOOT anyone trying to cross.

    Government is getting a 2019 pay raise

    Hoo-frickin'-ray. I know that feds seem to be everyone's favorite whipping boy - but aside from ridiculous comparisons and outrageous estimations of benefits and salaries - pay raises for federal employees is far less than your average American has received - Since 2008 - 2.5, 2.9, then 1.5...

    Empire Star Beaten in Homophobic racist MAGA attack

    And now even the major outlets are claiming it was a hoax. Of course, they will still blame the attack that didn't happen on Trump. You know what didn't make sense? See, a long time ago, a roommate made an observation to me that I've often claimed is one of the most important revelations about...
