He doesn’t want the Fed audited? And he demonstrates this by publicly supporting auditing the Fed?
I think maybe you haven’t thought this all the way through. Yes, he missed the vote. It would have been nice if he made it. With more than 40 nays, it was dead. Would have been nice doesn’t mean much then. When a person runs for president, he has to pick his battles. There are only so many hours in a day.

And he refuses to acknowledge the reverse: how many crimes will not be stopped *because of* his anti-2A actions. He absolutely will not acknowledge that there is a price that will be paid by some. Instead, he will continue to pretend that everything he does only has an upside.

I read a stat once that said that something like 99.7% (can’t remember if that’s the exact figure) of all species that have ever existed on earth are extinct.
While I don’t think people should be hunting things to extinction, at the same time, trying to save every rare species kind of runs counter to the laws of nature. Not saying we should never save things, I just think we go overboard sometimes.

Climate change in France must be worse than we realized.
They’ll have to pry the extension cord out of his cold, dead hands.

Maybe there is no fix or maybe it will take us decades to discover it. But that doesn’t mean we should continue to pretend that this is all fine and normal.
We should treat these people with compassion and like human beings and part of that should be the facing of reality that this condition is not normal and ok, even though we can’t precisely pinpoint the cause yet.
They should not be singled out or ridiculed any more than a person who has some physical handicap or someone with a mental handicap. But that doesn’t mean that the pendulum should swing in the complete opposite direction to the point where it somehow becomes acceptable to declare your gender to be whatever you feel like and then impose yourself on others, especially children.
The “fix” is to recognize it for the disorder that it is and stop indulging the fantasy and to hope for a real cure some day.

I’ve never studied the pyramids or ancient Egypt enough to know whether his theory is plausible or completely impossible.
But people are acting like he said the pyramids are unfinished space ships or that they were built to house the stargates. Ok, so he might be wrong. It’s not like it’s an insane theory, though.

I don’t understand why this point isn’t stressed more by the candidates themselves, the talking heads, etc.
Besides, what gridlock is Jeb talking about? The list of things Obama has been denied by the GOP is pretty short.
The only thing gridlocked in Washington is conservative principles because Democrats fight like they actually care what happens. And apparently they don’t even need majorities in Congress.

Yeah but on the flip side if someone digs up that he uses the product and puts it out, it looks like he’s trying to hide a relationship.
Those of us with common sense realize that his use of a product doesn’t necessarily mean anything but common sense doesn’t often intersect with politics.

Anyone that still supports Hillary Clinton, or that refuses to even criticize her, has a serious case of cognitive dissonance.

If we’re already socialist, why is it then that when we point and say “That/he/she is socialist!” they call us kooks and nutjobs?
Oh, right. Alinsky.

Eminent domain is a necessary evil. It’s one thing to do it to build a road or a school. But to do it for economic development “for the greater good” is entirely different. How the Supreme Court upheld this practice is beyond understanding.
Not only is a system like that rife with cronyism, but it is a little too communist for me. Private property rights are one of the most fundamental conservative principles. How someone can support taking property by force so that people can make a buck is a mystery to me. Especially so-called conservatives.

I appreciate you saving me some typing.

How many mass shootings can you name in the past 50 years where the guns were acquired through the “black market” with no background check?

I’m pretty sure Nye made the argument that if my father is an a-hole, my mother should have the right to kill me.
that is what he said !!!! so, if your parents were in love when you were born, and they lived happily until you are about say, ten, and then they get a divorce and HATE each other, then she has the right to kill your ass because she hates your dad now ??? wow ..... just wow !!!

I don’t think I would ask her any question. I would just point out to her that if a baby survives an abortion then, by definition, there was just an attempted murder of a person. This is why she insists it never happened.

I’ve been saying that for a long time. And I go one more step. Have a huge list of the things that get funded by the government currently like research of shrimp running on treadmills or funding for the arts and all the useless departments of whatever. Check the box and include in your total. Watch how fast spending is reduced.
Never mind the research...who bought the treadmills for the shrimp?

I don’t know, but a lot of people, including the league itself, seem to think it is a social advocacy organization.

In my observation, NFL teams seem willing to overlook an awful lot if they think a player can help them win the Super Bowl. Domestic violence, DUI, steroids/recreational drug use (probably less of that these days with the testing), general bad attitudes, etc. I have a hard time believing not a single team in the league would look past being gay if they thought he was a good player.
