Re: Time Machine

Went to see the Imitation Game today -- riveting movie -- and saw previews for Selma. Not hard to imagine how Fox News and the GOP would respond to opposition to denying voters' rights today.

Re: Obama to hollow out Cuba embargo

it's interesting that you bring up the Soviets and Chinese. Both occurred under republican leadership.

Re: Congress disenfranchises voters rights


Could it possibly be because the Democrats in Congress shut them off, and you're hopelessly loyal to them?


Nah. Its the Republicans, to whom you are hopelessly indentured.

Re: Gee, This Is Surprising

So people working in places not covered by city laws don't need to make a "living wage"?

Re: Aspects of Immigration Policy Found Unconstituti

I'm not sure that this is really going to affect the immediate operation of the program very much.

Re: Why use torture?

Because it works.

That's the best you can do? Shame on you.

Did you know that rape works? If the goal is procreation by the man, it works. If it is revenge for the invasion of the USSR, it works.

Re: Congress disenfranchises voters rights

Well, why should they get it? They don't have the right to taxation with representation. In fact, they count zero fifths when counted for representation in Congress. And no one supports that more than the Tea Party and the Republican predators.

Re: Income Inequality - they breed failure

If you are going to write like a racist, with classic racist logic, then why do you whine when you're called on it?

Re: How Can ANYTHING Justify This Mob Violence?

Afraid to address the question directly.

Afraid? No. Rather, bored and appalled at the question.

Regardless of this or any other verdict, what can possibly justify the kind of mob violence going on now in Ferguson (and elsewhere)?

Re: Benghazi! Benghazi! Benghazi!

Will this be enough to satisfy the conspiracy nuts?

Conspiracy nuts long ago dropped Benghazi. The people who persist are far more vile and malignant. Or, they're FoxParrots.
