Re: Name something the President has done well

Well, possibly the roaring stock market; the ultra-low unemployment rate; and the especially low (historically speaking) unemployment rates among minorities and women...

Re: The fault line concerning abortion

I agree with most of this.

However, when I speak of Judeo-Christian underpinnings, I really do not intend to suggest that it is "a religious matter." Even irreligious people (or Hindus,...

The fault line concerning abortion

I seriously doubt that we will come to any consensus as concerning the ethical (or non-ethical) nature of abortion-on-demand--at least, anytime within this generation. So I will not approach the...

Re: Name something the President has done well

What "regime," exactly?

It is my understanding that we were not attacked by any nation-state on 9/11; but by a non-state actor (i.e. Al-Qaeda).

Re: Name something the President has done well

The weasel words should be obvious: "have announced plans."

Does anyone seriously think that this is the same as a firm, irreversible commitment?

Re: How do republicans feel about Andrew Yang....

This "coming dilemma" assumes that the percentage of unskilled Americans will remain roughly static.

Maybe so.

And maybe not.

Re: How do republicans feel about Andrew Yang....

In most ways, Nixon leaned center-right.

But the UBI, nonetheless, may fairly be described as a socialist dream.

Re: President Trump's Dream Team?

I am not especially surprised that Donald Trump has done a 180 in this regard. That is partially because he is quite volatile (and not always consistent); and partially because 21 years--the length...

Re: President Trump's Dream Team?

It is my understanding that Rudy Giuliani deeply wanted to be a part of the team; and that he had left hints about this.

I really do not like Giuliani--his personality is not attractive, in my...

Re: FOX News Is a Threat to National Security

Liberals do not want a center-right news outlet to exist; so they do all they can to delegitimize Fox News.

They want only center-left outlets--such as CNN and (even more so) MSNBC--to...

The Tennessee Titans

The 28-12 win, Saturday, of the Titans over the Ravens--and in Baltimore, yet--must surely have sent shock waves across the NFL. After all, the Ravens are certainly the best team in professional...

Re: tRUmps loans backed by sanctioned Russian Bank ; Putin

Of course, "allegedly" is a weasel word--without which, the allegation would amount to nothing more than a smear. In other words, a libel.

Re: tRUmps loans backed by sanctioned Russian Bank ; Putin

I never take seriously anyone who cannot even spell correctly the president's name--or simply refuses to do so. (It is a certain sign of Trump Derangement Syndrome--or TDS, for short.)

Re: The cost of gasoline

I would not wish that the government should step in, and control the price. That borders on totalitarianism.

My point was simply that these distributors seem to be entirely amoral, judging by...

Re: The death of General Soleimani

We also fought alongside Stalin in WWII--once we decided we needed his help in the Eastern Front, in order to defeat Nazi Germany--but that hardly makes this murderer of 20,000,000 a good guy.

Re: The cost of gasoline

It us easy to imagine your purchasing large quantities of orange juice when it is inexpensive, and then storing it in a freezer. But can you really do the same with gasoline?

And as far as your...

Re: The cost of gasoline

Since their is no evidence that "too many people" were "chasing" too little gasoline at any time recently, how can you see this sudden increase in prices as a purely benign action?

Re: Irnian Missles are flying in to Iraq.

Yes, it was, indeed, "an act of war."

But do you seriously think that the storming of the US embassy recently was not an act of war?

Or that Iran's recent shootdown of an American drone was...

Re: The cost of gasoline

But there was still rampant price gouging during the holidays.



This is true.

Re: The cost of gasoline

Really?

Are you suggesting, then, that gasoline was just too scarce during the holidays; and that it therefore needed to be rationed by increasing its price?

This appears to be what you are...

Re: The cost of gasoline

This makes sense.

But what does it have to do with price increases that are done specifically during the holidays?

And does this not amount to mere price gouging?
