Alex Jones' penalty

Let me first make it clear that I am not a fan of Alex Jones; he is a conspiracy theorist (which is something that I deeply dislike).

Still, his recent civil penalty of almost 50 million...

Re: China to act provocatively toward Taiwan

Perhaps we should make it clear to the Chinese that we no longer adhere to a policy of "strategic ambiguity"; and any invasion of Taiwan will be regarded exactly as an invasion of a NATO member would...

Newsmax anchors from Fox TV

I just discovered the Newsmax channel on TV; and some of Fox's former anchors are on there.

Greta van Susteren and Greg Bolling are both anchors on Newsmax now.

Some contributors include...

China to act provocatively toward Taiwan

I heard this morning, on the news, that mainland China--in response to Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan--will send warplanes into Taiwan's airspace, and hold live-fire exercises near Taiwan's border.

Negative political advertising

There are some primaries underway in Tennessee--actually, they will be fully underway in November--and the various candidates are now advertising.

Most of the ads are very negative.

Re: "Vegan" friendly foods

But what evidence is there that vegan foods are "a popular idea"?

Re: China is now threatening the US

Since Texas actually is a part of the United States, this analogy seems to presuppose that China is correct, in assuming that Taiwan is really a part of mainland China.

Oh, by the way: Nancy...

Re: China is now threatening the US

I would not be at all surprised if this sort of cynicism were at work here.

Still, I emphatically do not wish for a foreign country--and especially a hostile one--to dictate just where American...

"Vegan" friendly foods

Lately, I have seen some products advertising that they are "vegan" friendly.

This strikes me as rather bizarre, since the number of vegans in America is probably smaller than the number of...

Re: China is now threatening the US

I totally agree!

That is why we should begin manufacturing items in the US again. (The words "Made in the USA" used to be a symbol of pride in this country. Nowadays, however, they are...

China is now threatening the US

China has now threatened the US over Nancy Pelosi's possible visit to Taiwan: Why, anyone who "play[s] with fire" is likely to "perish" by fire.

(Pelosi is, indeed, going to Asia. Whether she...

Re: Nancy Pelosi and Taiwan

If it does--and if we can prove it--that would be an act of war (as it actually was the first time).

And we should act accordingly.

Re: Fighter jets to Ukraine?

Strawman.

I never accused those who believe we have no business in supporting Ukraine of being "communists."

Erect a strawman, and it is very easy to topple it...

Nancy Pelosi and Taiwan

Very seldom do I agree with Nancy Pelosi; but I certainly do agree with her stated intent to visit Taiwan. (Of course, now she is waffling a bit.)

China is now threatening retaliation if she...

Over four-fifths of all Republicans do not want Biden to run again

I am rather surprised that 81 percent of Republicans do not want Biden to run again in 2024.

Yes, 81 percent!

I am a Republican; and I very much hope that he will run (although I quite doubt...

Re: Fighter jets to Ukraine?

Are you suggesting that Russia is "honoring its commitments to prevent mass slaughter of innocents and protect the territorial integrity of others"?

Why, pray tell, would we need the Fairness Doctrine in order to book serious analysts?

Those in charge of the various channels must think the public desires mere cheerleaders.

I simply detest special pleading; and I gravitate, instead, toward serious, analytical thought.

And I am not a Team Player; rather, I am an individual; and I think for myself.

Re: Fighter jets to Ukraine?

You seem rather angry--no, utterly enraged.

In any case, if the Ukrainians are, effectively, "given" these weapons, then that should be changed.

But why would you wish to throw out the baby...

Re: Dick Morris on the 2024 presidential race

Well, as president, he can probably be described as the nominal leader of the party.

But he is little more than a figurehead.

Dick Morris on the 2024 presidential race

Dick Morris is now predicting a 2024 rematch between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Of course, they will both have to win the nomination of their respective parties.

What do others think?
