  1. Correct! That is the one salient fact most people tend to overlook.
  2. I agree. It is heartening to see the spontaneous and genuine outpouring of civic outrage coming from these young people. I think they are about to learn a lesson however about how grassroots movements can be co-opted by monied interest groups. Both on their opponents side and their own.
  3. Great non political interview.

    If nothing else, it was nice to see how two thoughtful people of opposing views used to converse before the advent of social media.
  4. Well, one tragedy avoided anyway. Yeah, it's access to guns, to be sure, but there's something else at work in these kid's minds as well. http://abcnews.go.com/US/weapons-cache-found-home-md-teen-accused-bringing/story?id=53224189
  5. SURVEY: Do you want Trump to finish his first term?

    There's always a lot of recency bias in those surveys. Not arguing that Trump doesn't deserve his dead last ranking, but with the perspective of a few more decades passing you won't be seeing Clinton and especially not Obama in the top 20.
  6. SURVEY: Do you want Trump to finish his first term?

    Right, that's what I just said.
  7. It is getting harder and harder to believe that Trump is not being blackmailed by the Russians
  8. SURVEY: Do you want Trump to finish his first term?

    Trump's sole prison sentence commutation was to a slaughterhouse operator employing 389 illegals. Some financial fraud too but it was the employeeing of illegals that got the authority's foot in the door. Strangely, there was wide support for this commutation by Democrats and Republicans alike. Probably because the perp was Jewish with lots of political affiliations. Anyhow, it doesn't look like anyone wants to go after employers. They are the political donation class after all.
  9. I'm not sure what you mean by "both sides of the fence" or the "right side ofthe fence" but what I know of how the FBI operates, is that they mainy commandeer local agencies. They run roughshod over operations. That said, they are the appropriate agencyto contact as a clearinghouse for major crimes. They are responsible to get local agencies to act as they see fit.
  10. And which would be the best agency to contact if one suspects someone is about to commit mass murder? I've known a few FBI agents, and met a few more in the course of getting background checks and investigations into others having nothing to do with me. In my experience they are uniformally idiots. Most of them have accounting degrees.
  11. America is an exceptional country and that is primarily due to its geography. It is currently afflicted with a population more concerned with its "rights" than its responsibilities but that too will pass.
  12. There is something that can be done about it but it requires a Constitutional Convention. Executive Orders aren't going to do anything, and whatever law Congress may pass likely wouldn't survive a Supreme Court action. Call your state legislator and get him working on it, but we careful what you wish for as they may just open Pandora's Box. http://prospect.org/article/march-toward-constitutional-convention-slows-crawl
  13. Wouldn't you say that the people you describe were already in the Trump camp?
  14. I'm sure that is exactly what is currently happening.
  15. That's a good setup line.
