    I agree that Ms. Kelly isn’t innocent. I don’t like hers or Wallace’s seeking of “gotchas” and basically trying to stir up trouble rather than trying to inform voters. However, I do believe that NO ONE should be referred to as a “bimbo” or other such distasteful terms, no matter how vile the person is.

    BTW, I think Chris Wallace is just a lightweight version of his father, whom I also think is not a real journalist but a Leftist shill.

    Leftists often whine about labels while they call label people they don’t like. For example, they say all Republicans are old fat racist White guys. I am a bit fat, but I am not really old, I am no more racist than anyone, and no one has ever accused me of being White.

    I think the real problem some people have with Ted Cruz is that he is a real conservative and has the talent to change the Leftist Progressive course the US is on. Do a websearch on this: “5 Reasons Ted Cruz Is Even More Dangerous Than Donald Trump” to find an article at Salon.com by Robert Reich, a former high ranking Bill Clinton administration official. Those are the reasons the Left are afraid of Ted Cruz. Those are mostly the reasons why we need to elect Ted Cruz president.

    I agree. Plus, asking different questions allows them to do ambush questions meant to be sensational or a hit on a particular candidate rather than being an opportunity for viewers to compare/contrast candidates’ views on the same issues. IMO, candidate specific questions are more appropriate for interview situations, not debates.

    I have lived in my current neighborhood for almost 24 years. Over those years there have been many home invasions. The owner being armed is very helpful. Over those years, how many serial killers have we had? Ans. ZERO!

    You like to call yourself UseYourBrainz but it doesn’t sound like you use yours.

    And it has been my experience in California that FFLs follow the law to the letter. For example, in Cal we have a 10 day waiting period from the time you filled out the background check paperwork until you can take possession. I discovered the rule is actually a 14400 minute waiting period (10 days to the minute) after I came 9 days 22 hours later and was’t allowed by the FFL to take possession until 14400 minutes had passed. I got the impression from that FFL that the Feds look for any reason to deny their license and put them out of business. So they are very careful to follow the laws to the letter.

    I don’t want to bash Catholics but I will just mention a true story. On one occasion my mother-in-law, who was raised in a Catholic orphanage in Burma, told me that she was taught to hate Jews by the priests and nuns of the orphanage. I asked her, “Why? Jesus is a Jew.” She replied, “Really? I didn’t know that.” I was dumbfounded that she didn’t know that. And just like that she abandoned her antisemitism.

    After the CNBC embarrassment, I think all moderators will be more careful about going for the gotchas and try harder for more substance. IMO, Megyn Kelly did set the tone for subsequent debates going for the gotcha, with each subsequent one the moderators got progressively bolder. Trump and Ted Cruz (especially Cruz) put the brakes on at the CNBC debate. The debates have been pretty good since.

    I did upgrade from iPhone 5 to 6+. I did so only because my near vision isn’t as good as before and needed a bigger screen. Otherwise, I would STILL be content with a 5. I am sure there are plenty of people that feel the same way. In other words, there has been nothing new that is so great that I would itch for an upgrade.

    The Android based phones are nice but I saw nothing compelling a switch.

    It isn’t rocket science why Apple’s sales are declining. They haven’t provided a good justification for me to shell out several hundred dollars for an upgrade. Even if I had Donald Trump’s wealth, I am not so sure I would upgrade. Plenty of people apparently agree with me.

    While I have not been.a Trump basher, I find this one to be a cheap shot and it is not a remark “in all fairness”. While it is a factual remark, it serves to purpose other than to inspire ia prejudicial view.

    IMO, Obama really isn’t interested in performing his actual duties as president, like providing national security and the faithful execution of laws. In all his actions, I only see his interest in the “fundamental transformation of America” and the world into his Marxist utopian vision. Nothing else matters to him.

    I am really tired of the verbal contortions of the Obama administration. I really don’t give a cr*p if what they say is “technically true”. Judging from the results, what they say is not what they mean as it would be interpreted by the vast majority of reasonable people. In other words, I am calling bullsh** on the Obama administration. I hope more Americans will do the same and let them know it.

    They keep saying on the news that the weapons used by Farook and Malik were legally purchased. NO. THEY WERE NOT PURCHASED LEGALLY. Marquez bought the rifles for Farook and Malik. (I am speaking from firsthand experience) When one fills out the paperwork in California for purchasing a firearm, one of the first question that is asked is whether or not the weapon is really for you. If you answer “no”, you are automatically disqualified. So Marquez had to have answered “yes”. That means he falsified the paperwork. Therefore he did not buy the weapons legally.

    I am so tired of the media lying or distorting the truth to advance their Leftist agenda. It is bad enough when politicians do that. The media are supposed to inform us truthfully. The proper function of our type of government depends on it. Voters need correct and reasonably complete information in order to make reasoned choices and hold officials accountable. The media being dishonest is a major reason for our government failing to work well.

    I get your point, but that isn’t leadership. That is despotism.

    But Obama was reelected. I didn’t think it was possible that such a lousy president would be reelected. Such a president would not have been not that long ago.

    Dan Bongino said that exits polls from 2012 indicated that people said Romney bested Obama in every category (economy, foreign policy, etc.) except “the candidate cares about me”. So it seems Obama’s smear campaign worked. (I saw such ads in Colorado during a business trip there in 2012.)

    BTW, Obama lost the White vote to Romney by 20 percentage points. However, Obama’s overwhelming advantage in the minority vote (pretty much every group) overcame that disadvantage in the White vote. I am not White but I never believed Obama’s smears of Romney for a second. I think Romney is a bright guy but a stupid politician and let Obama get away with such campaigning.

    CJ Pearson is obviously not a conservative, at least not in this universe. So I think people should stop referring to him as a conservative.

    It is a fact that not all students entering college are prepared equally. I was in the top 5, not top 5%, top 5 (I think #3) in my HS class. I took all college prep classes but even that didn’t prepare me for the shock of the competitiveness of college (a highly ranked one at that). After my first two quarters, I started geting depressed and started to wonder if I could get an “A” grade. (I finally started getting A’s by my third quarter.) My point is that even I wasn’t as well prepared as I should have been.

    Admitting students with even lower preparation/performance is setting them up for failure. I attended college during a time when affirmative action was in full swing. Every fall term there were masses of students that didn’t make it to the spring term, mostly from particularly ethnic groups. Don’t take me as suggesting those ethnic groups are necessarily not as smart as others. I am saying that I suspect they were not admitted purely on merit. Admitting student who are not sufficiently prepared doesn’t help anyone except possibly politicians. It doesn’t help those ill prepared students that get frustrated and drop out. In fact, at my school there are usually increases suicides in the spring term – more than at other terms of the year.

    Especially in Chicago. It is a long tradition there.

    Let’s assume the allegations of those two players is correct. If that justifies the seriously injuring, even potentially cripling that ref, we have arrived at a very bad place in the USA.

    Many of the terrorists involved in the Moscow theater attack were widows.

    The Obamas will be just fine. They get security the rest of us don’t.
