Re: Death Throes of the Trump Presidency

I left out pro-Israel, anti-Muslim, against equal pay for women and people of color, and above all wildly against the rich/corporations paying any taxes. Because, supply side. Pff Pff.

Re: NRA Implodes- Lawsuits and Finances, Oh My!

The NRA is one of the masters at this, but many of the questions are "push poll" types where there is only one reasonable answer based on the way the question is set up. As a poll it's valueless. As a recruiting tool or a spreader of fear it's a masterpiece. My understanding of a push poll is that ...

Re: Death Throes of the Trump Presidency

I enjoy reading Rick Wilson, but I know when we get a democrat in the White House again he'll attack him with as much bile as he does Trump. Even now he slips an occasional slam against democrats in the anti-Trump stuff. He was responsible for the Jeremiah Wright stuff back in 2008. That was OK tho...

Re: NRA Implodes- Lawsuits and Finances, Oh My!

Wow. That is a textbook example of poll expressly written to elicit a series of desired answers, rather than actual opinions. Note especially the question regarding the banning of assault rifles...and handguns. I get annoyed enough with politicians (I only see the Dems) who ask meaningless feel-good...

Re: Democratic Debates 2020 Presidential

The Dem leadership cannot lead. None of them. Not the DNC, not the DCCC, certainly not Schumer, and, sadly, not Pelosi. Their version of leadership appears to be micromanaging the daily flow of news in hopes of either enticing the infamous undecided voters into their camp by not offending them and a...

Listed to Thom Hartmann yesterday. He shared his idle speculation that one way or another, the 2020 ticket will be Pence/Haley or Haley/Pence (he didn't specifiy which). Based on Haley's recent tweet of Pence approval. I normally scorn idle speculation but I'm in a mood to enjoy this. Will tune in M...

Re: Joseph "Joe" Robinette Biden Jr. 2020 - 4/25/19 He's In!

Once again, the MSM has forgotten to qualify their observations by adding that a perceived problem (in this case, voters seeing a candidate as an unpredictable risk) only applies to Democrats.
