    Alyssa Milano: “But isn’t it worth trying?”

    As I say, you and I completely agree on this. "The normal manner", today, with most mental health issues (except drug addiction, which interestingly is the most acceptable form of mental illness, because rich people go to comfy spa-like rehabs instead of jail) is to do what you did with the...

    Hey Yooper!

    Are you from the UP? I always assumed so from your name, but I always referred to those from the UP as "hey dare"s. Because, in the mornin' you say "hey dare" to people, eh?

    Father of Parkland shooting victim: 'Guns didn’t kill my daughter, Democratic policies did'

    Do you have a point on the issues raised in the opening post, or are you just here to troll? The idea seems to be a valid one - background checks done are meaningless if someone's background does not represent who they are because of policies/practices that try to protect people from having a...

    Alyssa Milano: “But isn’t it worth trying?”

    That's the thing. While I agree with Sam's post you quoted, what are we supposed to do? You can't limit someone's freedom because they're different. What I think we need to do is, as a people, modify our culture over the next generation or so to allow for mental health issues to be...

    Roasting Col. Sanders

    So, a business man started a company that made food with a recipe that the business man himself did not create? That's somehow a story?

    Saudi Oil

    Presidents have been known to do that. Remember this one, right before the 2012 election? "We have been very clear to the Assad regime -- but also to other players on the ground -- that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. "That...

    Saudi Oil

    Just so you know, SA didn't "sponsor" the 9/11 attacks.

    $1,000,000,000,000 WINNING!!!!!!!!!

    Why do folks like you and @transporter focus on the taxes? Why not discuss the debt on our children in terms of the spending instead of the taxes?

    Trump weighs in after writer's Andrew Yang tweet

    Shock or surprise? Of course not. But, surely you are not surprised by dignified men and women with self respect.

    Trump weighs in after writer's Andrew Yang tweet

    I think I've used this old joke as an example before: Rich man walks up to a beautiful woman, says, "I'll give you $1M for a single night of lovemaking with you." She excitedly tells him she is up for it. He says, "Wait, no, let's make it $100." She angrily responds, "Absolutely not. What...

    Democrat gets #### on for a change!

    I thought this was going to be about Pelosi actually getting asked a real question by a reporter recently. I think the reporter was fired, flogged, and one-leggedly mops floors for I-HOP now. Because, she asked Pelosi why Pelosi didn't bring the House back and re-write new gun control...

    As a general rule, I do not read what you post. You're a waste of time, because you do not respond.

    Trump weighs in after writer's Andrew Yang tweet

    Which goes to your initial post - an awful lot of us will take that. The problems I have with Trump as president would be significantly worse under any of the D's running, plus more worse things than the ones I suggested. So, crude and more good than bad, or diplomatic-speaking crappy...

    Trump weighs in after writer's Andrew Yang tweet

    If it were you and I over drinks saying other people think they can do that, it would be somewhat less vulgar (although I'd likely never do that because you're female and I'm male - it would be worded far less crudely). But, that was a guy saying he, personally, could do that. I think most...

    Trump weighs in after writer's Andrew Yang tweet

    I have no problem with his personal extravagance, because he tempers that with private philanthropy that I wish I could do and really wish others with his disposable cash would consider coming close to. Or, doing at all. On the personal side, he rivals Keanu Reeves - a private and personal...

    Trump weighs in after writer's Andrew Yang tweet

    :yay: Trump would not be my choice for a friend. The Access Hollywood comment would be enough for me to choose to not hang around with the guy - he's a braggart and vulgar. If he starts vetoing spending bills that are astronomical, I'll like him better as president. If he follows through...

    $1,000,000,000,000 WINNING!!!!!!!!!

    The difference is, of course, pay is based on performance and value provided. Taxes are not "pay" to the government, they are "theft committed by" the government. A reduction in pay would be stupid unless you had a concurrent reduction in value provided to those paying you. The problem is not...
