The government form said I had to pick a clinic and a doctor, so I wasted my time researching clinics and doctors and picked them. When I got the card I found out the government picked a different clinic and doctor then I did. Here are some questions for Bernie. Do I have to smoke pot or can I smoke tobacco and can I afford to anymore? Can I drink a soda today and what size, diet or sugared? How many miles can I drive today? How about some fast food? Can I eat a steak? After eatin...

FNC's Shep Smith: "We Are "Failing Our Children" Because We  Can't Figure Out Why They Are Killing Each Other"   Here is a hint. I am 54 this is how it was when I was in school. They set the trash can on fire two classes a day. Spit wads the size of baseballs made out of news paper. Punched in the back getting on the bus for no reason. Gum in the hair. Eggs on the chalk board when the teacher turned her back. Kids tee shirt said "flunk now beat the rush". ...

See iffn ya'll can remember this...Moderate Man   The day was dawning bright and clear at Yosemite National park; the sun rose serenely over the treetops, the advancing day chasing away the shadows of night, still pooled in the misted valleys and in the deep woods. Suddenly, a flock of birds scattered at the sharp sound of the word "NNNNOOOOO!"   The sound cut through the stillness of the early morning like a laser through pudding, carrying for miles through the misty air; ...

Why do people immigrate to the United States? Why do people move out of California?

The problem with anything is trying to over control it. Progress waits for no one. No one has to force progress it will happen even if you try to prevent it. The climate will take care of it self, the human race will invent new technology and carbon pollution will decrease. The problem today is people are panicking and panic never works. Just get out of the way and progress will take care of any problem real or imagined. Progress waits for no one.

I wasn't going to bother voting for Gov. on the 7th as I am filled with disgust by Chris Christie's Lieutenant Guadagno, but Democrat Murphy and his pledge to turn our already screwed and overtaxed state into a sanctuary for illegal Mexicans is something that I cannot sit idly by and not cast a vote against.So thats it. A lesser of two evils argument sends me top the poll on the 7th to vote for an official that fills me with revulsion. Only less revulsion than the alternative.

 Hard to believe this was only 5 short years ago. If the Russians are even slightly as dangerous as Democrats now hysterically claim, what does that say about Obama and his judgement?

Some may say I need a psychiatrist, but I've always enjoyed politics and the topics involved. With that being said, wading into the sewage of political discourse these days is an exercise in madness. Gone are the days when such discourse could lead to anything remotely resembling a civilized exchange of ideas. We've ushered in a new era where most people who have such interest are more out to prove that they are right, and any person with any disagreement, or objection to any policy and ...

I was talking about political issues with a friend on fb and it caused me to decide never to do it again. The friend had posted on the topic of Trump, and a Jewish issue of some kind, I think it was one of those unfounded Trump/Antisemitism attacks, so I gently, or not so gently reminded him that Obama's support in Israel was the lowest of any American President in history. The poll I cited was not tilted or partisan in any way, cause it listed Bill Clinton as the Israeli favorite. So it rea...

I can't take credit for this as I found it out there on the internet. I was amused, so I thought I'd share. A Schumer. In the animal world when a donkey is mated with a mule the result is a jackass. The modern term now for a jackass is a schumer. Unlike a mule, noted to be a dependable hard working animal, in contrast, the schumer is exceedingly belligerent, un-dependable, and spends much of it's time braying at the world. Braying is somewhat of a disgusting sound emitted by a ...
There's a lot of mystical, teary-eyed attachment, especially among my fellow libertarians, to the idea of a hard backing such as gold for the dollar.  The reality is simple supply and demand.  People need dollars to pay their taxes.  There is effectively no substitute.  Mortgages and other financial instruments in the U.S. are also tied to the dollar and there is no sign that somehow bitcoin or any other replacement - including gold - is immediately av...

Can we have an extension on the day? Hows about a year without a Democrat?
