"Those" libertarians

I recently saw a list that someone compiled of the "10 most influential libertarians." I didn't recognize most of the people on the list but was startled to see that many of them support bombing some nations into the stone age, closing the borders, deporting anyone with skin darker than the average ...

Re: Bubba:Still A Liar

Frankly, the only thing that surprises me about this report and related links is the suggestion that Hillary supporters "changed their mind at the last minute" and voted for Trump. I have never seen an election as polarized as that one - no one changed their mind after, I don't know, August. The peo...

Re: New Years message from our Prez

Is this a Monty Python sketch? We went from "If he wasn't talking about Americans, who was he talking about?" to "I guess you're a Trumper." I know you are, but what am I?

Re: President Oprah ?

Not sure what unqualified means as it comes to Presidents. But having a hapless figurehead in office sounds appealing. I was riffing off the statement in the article that she seemed to start taking the idea seriously when she realized that Trump is unqualified and she always thought of herself as u...

Re: New Years message from our Prez

Apparently Americans were not his focus when he made this cynical comment. @realDonaldTrump As our Country rapidly grows stronger and smarter, I want to wish all of my friends, supporters, enemies, haters, and even the very dishonest Fake News Media, a Happy and Healthy New Year. 2018 will be a gre...

Now imagine if H.L. had had that pessimistic view.
That's a pretty good point, actually.

Re: President Oprah ?

Why not? The more unqualified people we have in office, the more people will take the reins of their own lives and stop waiting for the perfect dictator to run it for them.

Re: Trump's Big Beautiful Wall

This kind of condescension, self-importance, and haughtiness by you people is exactly why Trump won. The actual quote is "basket of deplorables," a statement of breathtaking condescension that probably cemented her loss more than any other single remark. Disclaimer required because some folks don't...

Re: C'mon Trump

With regard to politics, I've been a pessimist for a long time. Why do you think I stopped writing about it?

Re: Christian libertarian?

Thanks for the response. Now I know you don't practice turning the other cheek. That clears that up. However, I find it inconceivable that as your neighbor is robbing you in the middle of the night, you wake up and start beating the thief with a baseball bat that you are loving him. Do you understa...
