Re: Another Shooting

The gun rights crowd says these things always happen in a "gun free zone" and those laws don't work and, I guess, that if the would-be shooter thought he might be gunned down by heroic civilians before he shot many people, I'd think better of pulling a stunt like that. Seems to me, if somebody consi...

Re: The Weight-Management Thread

Three different times in my adult life I've lost at least 40 pounds. The methods I used didn't seem too extreme at the time, a balanced diet, nothing crazy, and exercise (though in retrospect, the 90 minutes of cardio I did most days of the week when I was 23, a year out of college and losing my piz...

Re: 2020 Census Citizenship question

Something in his remarks just now made me think of this: Every other American president has used "we" and "us" to describe the United States as a whole. Donald Trump says things like "the courts have been, frankly, very unfair to us," and there lies the difference. To him, "we" and "us" refer only ...

If Garland could not get enough votes, could Obama have somehow claimed a victory of sorts or could i...
