Re: Franken would not have resigned if ...

The Dems already look like hypocrites. After all, they kept Ted Kennedy in the Senate for decades after he committed (at least) manslaughter, put Bill Clinton in the White House twice, and are still having a hissy fit over their failure to put him back (albeit in a different wing). Assuming Moore wi...

Re: Drug Test the Welfarians

When I was told to pee in a bottle to prove the company wasn't hiring a crazed drug addict, I considered whether taking the job was worth the invasion of my privacy, and I violated my principles and took the job. So I was all set to say people should suck it up and pee in the bottle if they want the...

Re: Tax reform ?

I think my taxes will go down, cool. My kids will not be so lucky, but that is their problem. Planning for a deficit, what ?. Did Clinton win the election afterall ? Wrong example. Clinton eliminated the deficit. (Actually Congress did, but Clinton got the credit.) Oh, wait, you meant the other Cli...

Re: Gay Cakes & Speech

How about if a black baker is approached by a couple who want the Confederate flag or a swastika on their wedding cake? Well, if the question is for me. As I said, I don't think the customer has the right to demand specifications. Now if you are attempting to declare a nazi as a protected class, th...

Franken would not have resigned if ...

Al The Unfunny Comedian would still be in office if he had been elected in Wisconsin instead of Minnesota, where the governor (currently Democrat) appoints his successor, especially if Wisconsin played by the same rules. But actually Governor Walker does not have the power to replace a senator who r...

Re: CMA awards -musicians or models ?

Carrie Underwood won the fifth season of American Idol.

Some wiseguy once said modern country is rock and roll from 20-30 years ago. I really like '70 and '80s country, which is pretty much early rock and roll.

Johnny Cash's American Recordings albums are spectacular.

Re: About those Russians

Maybe it's a stretch to say a gang of thugs rocking the bus containing Republican legislators was a riot, or that a mob of people surrounding a lawmaker and shouting at him until a Democratic colleague rescued him was intimidation, but they're examples of why people who supported reining in the publ...

Re: About those Russians

All a poll measures is the number of people willing to express an opinion. The way some people are willing to insult and belittle others for their beliefs, it's no surprise that many will decline to be polled until they can do so in secret at the real polling places. That's what happened with the Wa...
