  1. I saw an interesting example of this in an earlier post. Someone cited "failed hospitals" in their laundry list of complaints about Trump. Hospital preparedness is something Puerto Rico should have thought of beforehand. While Trump pointed out their poor infrastructure, I think that could have waited. That doesn't make it untrue, just bad timing. It appears to me their failures will make our assistance a bigger job. But yes, of course we can, are and should help Puerto Rico.
  2. No, it's the truth: https://www.google.com/search?source=hp&q=one+third+of+puerto+rico+on+food+stamps&oq=one+third+of+puerto+rico+on+food+stamps&gs_l=psy-ab.3...4777.10882.0.11141. The truth is never nonsense. And the mentality of people in general in a disaster-affected area will absolutely have an affect on how said people get through a natural disaster. People who are used to providing for themselves will fare better than those who stick their hand out waiting for others to do for them.
  3. What irrelevant assertions? My comments were addressed specifically to the topic at hand.
  4. Agreed. An island hit by such a horrible natural disaster, we should certainly be sad about those who have perished. But also we should be grateful that the death toll wasn't higher. At some point, it would be interesting to see how Puerto Rico's infrastructure preparedness played a role. That should certainly come later, and I could have done without Trump commenting on their infrastructure so early in the game. There will be plenty of time for analysis later.
  5. This story is hilarious. If one reads carefully, there is no meat to this story. There is literally nothing to complain about. There seems to be a strange obsession with Duke's statement: "I know it is really a good news story in terms of our ability to reach people and the limited number of deaths that have taken place in such a devastating hurricane," Duke said. In reality, there is nothing wrong with her statement. Furthermore, Puerto Rico is a welfare state. 1/3 of their population is on food stamps- about triple the rate of that in the United States. Of course they are going to sit around and whine. That's what welfare state leftists do. Complain. Thankfully, Houston had an entirely different experience with the outpouring of volunteering and cooperation in the affected area. Hopefully the author of this article crawled back under his or her rock to come up with some better material than this vague whining.
  6. Why was that the big tip off? I guess my not having cable TV and you being a Fox News fan has me at a disadvantage. Do tell. And if bad news is fake news, why then did Fox cover this story about Price resigning? Your assertions seem to be in conflict with each other.
  7. The report should probably read something more like, "several items that look like missiles.....".
  8. Ummm... no, they're not all reporting the same thing. Julian Assange is willing to come forward with proof Russia wasn't involved. He's rarely if EVER proven to not come up with the goods.

    Yes, it's because we have something called the Second Amendment. Bad things happen in free countries. One can always choose to live in other, more heavily regulated countries like Singapore if that is more to their liking. The basic problem in the United States is lack of accountability- from top to bottom.
  10. Toddler shoots two children at Michigan home

    Not so fast. Perhaps she was unaware of the gun in the house. I would sooner look to the parents and specifically how they had the weapon stored. I'm not dismissing a look at the babysitter, though.
  11. I agree. Trump should have just ignored Junior instead of playing the saber-rattling game. But specifically to the topic, I suspect North Korea could be easily dealt with. Their rocket tests aren't impressive. They appear to be point-and-shoot. I don't think they have an accurate delivery system. As for shooting down US bombers: even if they could, they can rest assured they would pay an extremely heavy price for doing so. I'm not convinced their military is very impressive at all.
  12. There should be far more DC hacks flying commercial. This guy broke the rules, he's got to go. That's pretty much it.
  13. It's not a scientific poll. Period. Everyone knows that.
  14. No need to deflect. I provided you with several examples of the behavior I described, including murder. You just tacitly conceded you lost when you modified the quote to distort the truth. Why else would you have felt the need to be so dishonest if not to cover up your realization that you couldn't win without said modification of quote? This is very basic stuff. No sourcing, copying or pasting needed. Just one thinking person with a brain versus you.
