Re: More Republicans Say They’ll Block Supreme Court Nominee

It's not actually "common practice". As one Supreme court justice I admired, Sandra Day O'conner says: "I think we need somebody there to do the job now and let's get on with it," said O'Connor, the first woman appointed to the Supreme Court. O'Connor, 85, agreed it's unusual for a Supreme Court vac...

Re: Ted Cruz for President Talk

Also, back to Ted, as Kenny has asked... I find it interesting that he was born in Canada to an American woman and folks are talking about his birth certificate/nationality. His father is Cuban. Will this be another situation like President Obama? According to his "website", you maybe right, the ir...

Re: Ted Cruz for President Talk

It should be interesting how this plays out. Obama will certainly nominate someone. to suggest he shouldn't is idiocy. He must. Then the ball will be in republican senates court, with a disproportionate amount of republicans defending their seats for re-election. At the same time, the nominees for p...

Re: Super Bowl 50 Who will win?

I would like Peyton to win as it is likely his last game ever, but Panthers are the better team, and they will win.

Re: Donald Trump You're Fired!

I predict Cruz will do as well as the last 2 Republican Caucus winners in Iowa. Most likely. Extreme Democrats will win over extreme Republicans. Do I like it? Not at all. I can't stand where the party has moved to. I'd like to see the leadership of Newt Gingrich, who worked with Bill Clinton, to b...

Re: Gonna hurt Trump or not?

A stronger, smarter military. The size is not the point any longer. Quality of troops, equipment, and intelligence. Boots on the ground mentality is not the same as before - except to those who can't give up the history of the past and their hooah days. Forward, quality, smart thinking is required ...

Re: Donald Trump You're Fired!

I am quite sure we are polar opposites when it come to who we think the very stupid people are. I also would say that I think the Oligarchy direction of the country is more of an issue then socialism. To that ends, I agree with you, Campaign finance, the dark money, is a huge issue. I have also come...

Re: Donald Trump You're Fired!

DT pulling out of the debate at last minute - is just to get more free publicity - much more than he would get if in the debate. I predict that - after the debate - there will be more talk about how it would of gone if Trump had been there, than about what any of the others said. He is a shrewd man...

Re: Voting proportions of the entire population.

In the UK (where I originally came from), Gerrymandering is a crime. It would be jail time for doing over there, what happens here as a matter of course. Technically it is a crime here but no one ever goes to jail or even fined. Worse case is they make them go redraw the map to make it slightly les...

Re: Voting proportions of the entire population.

Because it has been to an advantage for a certain party to have less people vote, there have been more laws aimed a suppressing vote (voter id laws, less early voting and such) in the last few years. Though making it easier to vote would help some, voter apathy still prevails. I always thought campa...
