Re: Random Thoughts Again

Indeed. At the pulpit the left continues to fire back at hyperbole with more hyperbole, all the while looking at the front row where their supporters are eating it up and frothing at the mouth. They don't bother to look at the large crowd behind that whose smiles are gradually turning to deeper and ...

Re: Politics

I'd be more concerned with the USSC's path toward big $$ and corporations vs. workers rights. And it might not end here. At least 2 more liberal justices are on the doorstep of leaving, aren't they? What if that happens in the next 2 years?

Re: Other Sports

Entertaining, up until that 0-0 agree-to-not-lose sham of a game between France and Denmark. Yawn.

Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

I should program an ad-block plugin to filter out awareness shaming, whingy "repost if you're still my friend" calls for attention, and those infuriating hyperbole memes from either wing. I'd make a killing, join the top 1%, and rest on my laurels while thumbing my nose to the rest of you....

Re: Politics

Certainly how we got here is a textbook lesson in political procrastination. And in my opinion your crazy assertion has some validity. I would say there is a significant amount of support of the outside-the-polls variety because, to answer my own question a) previously, there is a large swath of vot...

Re: Politics

Attended a wedding weekend at Ritz in Naples last year. I would totally immigrate illegally to get me some more of that.

Re: Politics

The previous POTUS tried (1) and (2). He established family detention centers that kept families together while their cases were processed. But a federal court decided that the family detention centers violated the Flores Agreement that put restrictions on the detention of children. Fair point. But...

Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

Pet peeve: social media chain letter peer pressure. Anything that goes along the lines of "blah blah awareness blah blah most people won't repost this only true friends will respond and share" My immediate response is along the lines of "eff you and the horse you rode in on".

Re: Politics

That didn't answer my questions. But to reply to yours: (1/2) and (5) If processing, detain them in housing that keeps family together. Stop wasting time prosecuting a first time misdemeanor. If facility is full send them back across border without taking the time to give them a ticket. BTW, the pre...
