problem is judges are lawyers first and forever, we should train people in law school in 3 divisions prosicuters, defence, judges this switching between the 3 corrupts the system, also enter politice the law degree should become null and void forever
jr, then how do we go about electing judges? appointments are even more corrupt than elections.
The District Attorney's office screwed up and filed charges in Family Court as a Juvenile, instead of taking him to District Court charged as an adult.
We do elect our Judges here in Texas, and in partisan elections too. But people are generally too lazy to bother to find out about what the Judge has been doing on the bench. And in this Judge's case, she probably did divorces, paternity cases, etc. just fine.

If Kasich hadn’t been in the race, Trump would’ve won OH and the election would be over. If you support Cruz, then OH for Kasich is a victory. Never understood the Cruz strategy of trying to take out Rubio in FL. Cruz was never going to win FL, but Trump winning only gives him momentum moving forward. If the strategy is ‘prevent Trump from reaching the magic number’ and trying to outmaneuver him in Cleveland, the best chance for stopping Trump was Rubio winning FL.
If it was 1 on 1 a couple weeks ago he may have stood a chance.
Trump will now carry all the momentum and Cruz will fade away.
It is amazing how people refuse to use logic
Even if Trump won Ohio and if Kasich would drop out, Cruz could run the table on Trump the rest of the way. Cruz could have already been beating Trump by now if it weren’t for the other two splitting the vote. If Kasich drops out Cruz catches up and overtakes Trump, possibly even making it to 1237.
It was never an option for BOTH rubio and kasich to drop out. The establishment always has a candidate in the race. Whoever told you it could be Trump vs Cruz is a fool.
@jarhead.... Cruz would never get 77%, which is what he needs, heads up against Trump, not in anyone's wildest dreams. Games over for Ted, only 1 possibility for him going forward, VP with Trump.

He praises the mammograms and pap smears by Planned Parenthood while ignoring genocide – how is that not condoning violence?

You do realize that the companies that process the drug tests are also the ones making campaign contributions? Testing every public employee would be worth millions of dollars, with little to no public benefit. History shows that drug testing of welfare recipients doesn’t save enough in benefits than the cost of the test’s administration. Cost versus benefit doesn’t add up.

He also said Planned Parenthood does a lot of good, focusing on pap smears and mammograms while ignoring the genocide in the next room. He also said Hillary surrounds herself around great people and would do a good job negotiating with Iran. He said Obama was handling the economic recovery well. He also said he supported a ban on assault rifles. He also said if he ever ran for President, he’d do so as a Republican b/c Republican voters were stupid. Suck on that.

It’s Fascism when Trump proposes curbing the First Amendment because a newspaper published an article he doesn’t like, it’s Fascism when Trump threatens to sue Cruz for running a commercial that uses footage of Trump in his own words point out policy inconsistencies.
Given his longstanding support of using eminent domain from private development, he would seem to fail your litmus test.

Ashes, eminent domain for public works projects is one thing – building a highway, a school, or even parkland – that’s what the Founding Fathers had in mind. What they didn’t support were billionaires abusing eminent domain to further private development.

How is Trump not a RINO himself? Do you know many conservatives that donated thousands of dollars to people like Charlie Rangel (should be in jail), Hillary Clinton (should be in jail), Sheldon Silver (will be in jail), Alan Hevesi (was in jail), Malcolm Smith (is in jail), Adam Clayton Powell (raped his intern), ad Eliot Spitzer (should be in jail)? And that’s not even all of the politicians are in jail. Among his past and current positions that are anything but conservative: pro choice, pro gay rights, pro eminent domain for private use, pro gun control, pro progressive taxation system…the list goes on and on.

If the government actually committed to rebuilding our infrastructure – repaving highways, replacing bridges, etc – and gave hiring preferences to veterans at a living wage, $1000 a week ($25hr x 8hr x 5days) instead of local developers and unions that donate to Congress, bipartisan support could be possible. More likely is that a watered down veteran’s preference is included, with each member of Congress fighting behind the scenes and make backroom deals to secure projects in their districts so they can reward their local developer donors, irrespective of actual need. And passed in the middle of the night with no debate.

Wrong, wrong, wrong. Just because you’re willing to cede war powers to the Executive Branch doesn’t mean we all should.

In the world on online shopping, does anyone actually buy anything from the department store websites? The ability to instantly compare prices almost guarantees the lowest price won’t be from a department store.
