    Bertha+Liberal=Why?

    I'm beginning to feel like Dustin Hoffman... you don't happen to resemble Laurence Olivier, do you? :wink: Why do you suppose this is such a "big open nerve?" Please give me your impressions before I answer.

    Re: something I could never understand - I didn't say at what stage I, if it were up to me, would disallow women from having abortions. (Is a fetus viable at the end of the first trimester, for example?) But it's not up to me--neither is it up to anyone else but the woman.

    not intending to start a welfare debate... I don't know if it's because I grew up on welfare, or because there was a time that I needed the help myself, but I strongly disagree. It's not always a matter of irresponsibility. In my stepfather's case, it was. In mine, it wasn't. In my...

    The incarcerated have already had their right to vote revoked, as you know. Welfare recipients shouldn't be allowed to vote because they receive their sustenance from the state. Vrai, I'm sorry, I hope you won't lose your patience with me on this issue, but you'll have to explain this as you...

    hey, Larry Agreed, and the thought of Clark as a viable candidate wasn't my point. He's not a viable candidate, and I never thought he was. My point, and I'm sorry I didn't make it clearer, is that although someone--anyone--got more than twice the write-in votes of Al Gore & Hillary Clinton...

    Book: JFK Jr.'s wife had drug problem

    IMHO Books like this contribute absolutely nothing good, either to the annals of biography (for this is voyeurism, not biography, IMO) or history or even pulp fiction. OTOH, I suppose perhaps there is some good in this book: at least one person probably had a job, running some kind of...

    How young is too young to get married?

    Oops. I voted for 18-21---and then I noticed the survey question is different from the thread title. D'oh! I married at 37. That was the best time for me. Mileage varies.

    Bragging again!

    Brava! That's great news. Keep on bragging. And let her know she makes you proud! :thewave:

    stuff I'd never seen

    :lmao: I had to look it up: it's the white-throated sparrow. Faab-ulous, thank you for asking. I got a surprise 40th birthday party, trips to Catalina Island and the San Diego Wild Animal Park, and spent enormous amounts (but not enough) of time with my sisters, my niece, 15, and my...

    stuff I'd never seen

    I love birds. We feed them on the deck, and watching them is better than television. By default we also feed the squirrels, but we try to keep them happy with their own corn. (It's a losing battle.) My favorites right now are the goldfinches. Oh, I forgot a couple: black-capped chickadees...

    Why? Good lord, why? I grew up on the dole. My stepfather, definitely part of the problem, worked the system instead of working. But if you had your way, my mother would never have voted, and I probably would have grown up ignorant of the system and my duty. FYI & FWIW, he was a...

    You assume that an increase in the numbers of voters automatically means that those voters will not educate themselves before voting? :rolleyes: Do you honestly have a problem with people attempting to drum up more voters? You're satisfied with less than 50% turnout? I think it's...

    stuff I'd never seen

    Before moving to Southern Maryland from Southern California, where I was born and spent the first 36 1/2 years of my life, I had never * seen a lightning bug * seen the Atlantic Ocean * driven on a carpet of tiny frogs after a hard rain (didn't like that one bit) * been in a thunderstorm...

    Mm-hmm... I'm not surprised. Why are you (ostensibly)? Why would any member of an organization this far to the left vote for a Republican president in a contest intended to rate its members' preference from among the declared Democratic candidates? Larry, on your top write-ins, you missed...

    Older, gentle BIG dog for FREE

    I wish I could take the dog, but I can't. IMHO, the good woman should've said "hit the road, Jack!" What kind of a person makes that kind of ultimatum? The mind boggles.

    Finally, the results of the write in vote might surprise some of our more staunch GOP members. See the bottom of the page found at the MoveOn.org link above.
