Re: Why Bernie - Income Inequality

How does Mark Zuckerberg's $50 billion lessen your life in any way, shape, manner or form?

That's a lot of bridges not fixed, potholes not filled, and water not cleaned. It's why our infrastructure is crumbling.

Re: Walt Mossberg on the Apple app user experience

Have to agree with Walt. When I bought my first Mac in 2004 it really did "just work". It continued to work until about 2008...since then it's started to be much more of an "in your face" OS.

Re: Bernie and/or Hillary

For me, the problem is that too often it is Republicans vs Democrats, instead of what's best for the American public. We sometimes get lost in the dust over the two-party power struggle.

Agreed...except that because Republicans are [more]

Re: Mensa Convention

There should be a TMF rule: no active posters from PA should be allowed on the HURL board. They ruin this place.

Once again, trying to own something you didn't create.

If you cannot tell the difference between a joke and the truth, you should not be any where around where jokes are being told.

It wasn't a joke. It was a parable to make stupid people feel better about themselves.

Kinda reminds ya of The Government, doesn't it?

No, it reminds me of people who put together long, tortured, and non-sensical anecdotes to try and make a "point". Your post is a mirror...

Re: Bernie vs Hillary

Is Sanders a more effective public speaker than Obama?

Not generally, I just think he's made a better case on that issue.

Re: Liberated from Ethanol Subsidies

So from now on, there's no reason to sell out your 'free market' principles. Screw Ethanol subsidies.

There isn't a single liberal who believes Hillary is honest, they just prefer a dishonest liberal/progressive over any Republican.

Re: FoxNews Getting Good at Catching Cruz Lies

If you're lying too much for Fox, you're really lying.

I think that's the wrong measure. They just don't like Cruz. They'll accept any amount of lying from people they like, and add plenty of their own if it's about Obama.

Re: Neurologist Explains Ted Cruz Facial Express

For Cruz, the ugliness on the inside is well reflected on the outside.

If his face is such a barrier, how does he have so many followers? I'd find that more interesting to know.
