It's a shame you didn't follow that line of thought thru to completion. In this day and age things have changed dramatically from the time we were kids and before. You say that the professional class has loyalty to country, not party or elected official. That used to be a whole lot more true than it is today. Now a large majority (95%, 98%, 99.99%?) are firmly in the progressive left....

Not that we apparently do a great job of learning about our government in civics class. The responsibilities and purview of the various branches of government are poorly understood. And the same can be said of the federal, state and local governments. For all our strongly held opinions, most of us have little idea who actually does what. But, there is an even more significant breakdown of our government structure. There are...

Ha ha. I was thinking more like a pacifier, lollipop, cyanide pill, or lying twisted words. Or superglue would work. Really, it could be anything. Not my concern as long as they leave me out of it. As long as hillary didn't have to do certain things she didn't care what slick willy did. Until he got caught and embarrassed her. At least he can always say he was a winner. Something she still can't say.

That sounds like someone running the mafia instead of a country. The supreme court only gave him part of what he wanted for now but I am sure he will call it a clear victory. Trump claims he is just learning about Russias involment in the election when he was briefed months ago.Why is Sessions saying anything about this when he will not even and has not talked to Trump about this and he is the...

Just makes me think less of the left. Now their identity politics is making them squabble amongst themselves. Just saw that the BLM crowd in the Twin Cities interfered with the gays prancing for their pride. Can't make this stuff up. I'm definitely going to need to pick up more popcorn next time I'm at the Wal-Mart.

We want people in the government who are loyal to the country, not some wannabe dictator. You can check out the oaths of office. No one swears fealty to a person.

Loyal people don't leak. But looks like comey is one of the head leakers. Wish the camera had shown him standing up after his testimony. Maybe he leaked more than we know.

Nothing. Cause even he believed the lame stream media lies that hillary would win (or did he?). Is it beyond your imagination that b o may have set up surveillance? Apparently you missed it when the news was reporting b o's administration had been illegally spying on thousands of Americans (maybe even you) for years.

NOTHING. He will not even admit that it happened and praises Putin. Now he admits there were no tapes that he knew of insinuating that Obama might have put a surveillance device there.He also admits that he said that to influence Comeys...

This legislation would have never gotten done in open meetings. Truth is, little of consequence is ever done by the government in open meetings. Regardless of open meeting laws, most of the business of any consequence is done outside, and what occurs in public meetings is merely a performance. Of course, this particular legislation presents a real problem for the Republicans. No matter what form it takes, more people will be unhappy with it, than happy. Quite...

Seems like nowadays it is all about going along to get along, not making waves, not rocking the boat. And not getting anything done. But when you want to get something done, you gotta actually do something. You know, possibly the best era of music was 1970s classic/mellow rock.

I see it as a new "taking care of business" approach that I would see in a large corporation. Limit the number of participants so that it does not take FOREVER to come up with options. It will still come out for evaluation, but too many voices make for confusion and distraction. I don't think healthcare is a race topic for this challenge, but for those who see...

The pragmatic answer to the glass problem is "hey, there is plenty of room to add vodka/Jack/adult beverage of choice".🍸 Wish the poor anchors at CNN could have one or two.

But it sure would be nice if we all lived under the same laws. As far as her real point goes I think 13 white guy republicans can come up with a better healthcare plan behind closed doors than 1 black guy democrat intent on imploding the whole system in order to institute single payer (total government takeover).

I believe that LB Reel has come up with something we can all agree with. I don't know that it is realistic to think the nation could afford for everyone to have the health plan congress typically rewards itself, but it would go a long way towards me buying in if congress put itself on the same plan they are creating for us.

But I think it is a chicken or the egg kind of question. Are the parties responsible for their disconnect with their constituencies, or do people bear some responsibility for listening to someone who just tells them what they want to hear?

The same party that elected Kennedy, FDR, Wilson, and Andy Jackson. They tried to elect Stephen Douglas just before the War of Northern Aggression, not Abe. The two parties never got together one day and said "hey, let's switch names". But I can see why you have to believe what the party tells you instead of learning history for yourself.

When the president of a country was heard and seen telling americans to punch people in the face,offer to pay for their legal fee and let the 2nd admendment take care of his opponent what do you expect will...

And no, I don't want a civil war. But the more uncivil, violent, and mainstream the far left get, the more likely it seems. And true, the lack of agenda-passing isn't wholly the fault of the dems/media. The left wing and anti-Trump portions of the Republican party are also at fault. But I lump them in with the libs and sometimes call them rinos. At least the dems have taught those that don't want a democrat for president how to...

We have 7 american soldiers killed and Trump goes on a self congratulatory rant on twitter about his d*** fake poll numbers. He never mention them or their families,this is inappropriate for a president.Like I said he only cares about himself.This is a man who went golfing on Mothers day instead of spending it with his family.

It does not seem to me that it is all about liberals and conservatives, or Republicans and Democrats. We have some basic perceptions of reality that do not mesh, regardless of political philosophy. 1) You believe that Trump is out to make life better for average Americans and "make America great again." But, all I see is a two bit hustler born with money. I see the same guy that is selling counterfeit Rolex watches on Times Square, or rolling back odometers on used...

Otherwise there would be no argument because you are wrong. If he really thought it was all about his wants, then that would make him a masochist, not the sadist the progressives make him out to be. Why else would he spend his last years putting up with all the BS the left is constantly slinging at him? He could spend the rest of his life doing anything he wanted for fun.

Did not have time to mix up some soap and oil tonight but will tomorrow. It may seem counterproductive to mix something that breaks down the oil but they both do different jobs. The soap does not stop the oil from suffocating the insect and the soap helps the oil and water as a surfactant to cling to the insects as well as dehydrates by breaking down the protective coat on the insect.
