    Re: Al Franken

    I think he, and we, got a raw deal. Perfection ought not be the enemy of the good. Judging past actions by current standards can be tricky.

    Re: Liz Cheney , You go girl!!!

    The GOP has gone to a very dark place. November's elections may actually be the most important one ever. Thanks to our misconstruing of the 2nd, those trumpsters are well armed.
  3. Re: Requiring honesty from elected officials

    Even advertising should be required to be truthful. Saying a product will do something it will not do is no different than lying about the miles on a used car.
  4. Re: Contingencies For When Trump Is Arrested

    I think speculation now is unwise. If we get our hopes up, we're likely to be disappointed.

    FOX said, "If they can do this to him, imagine what they can do to you." Their viewers ate that up.

    We accept it as free speech, and it is leading to our downfall.

    The majority opinion CAN BE WRONG. Didn't we learn something about burnin witches?
  7. Re: Requiring honesty from elected officials

    When Watergate was happening, everyone had the same set of facts. Imagine how that would have turned out if people had different sets of facts, as we have today.
  8. Re: Requiring honesty from elected officials

    Fraud, Libel, Slander, and inciting violence are NOT free speech. Why make exceptions in the realm of politics?
  9. Re: For all who are cheering the Mar-a-Lago raid

    Assuming he does run, his likelihood of winning the nomination is probably dependent upon how many not Trumps are in the field. The more vying for the GOP nomination, the better his chances.
  10. Re: Requiring honesty from elected officials

    I've been 'preaching' this for three decades. Lying for political gain is no different than a car dealer turning back an odometer.

    Not just they tell the truth, but also, as part of their job, cooperate with all congressional committees. They should be under oath their entire term.

    The invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq were dumb mistakes. I opposed both, and so stated in my book.

    If Trump skates, I'd find it hard to convict anyone of anything.

    That said, he may not skate. He's got legal problems on several fronts. I wonder how successful his fundraising off of them is....
