  3. Re: Here's a creative way to suppress the vote

    What happens, if anything, if elections are decided by less than the number of voters illegally denied their vote?

    Re: Jane Fonda

    The bigger issue, to my mind, is we never learn Gulf of Tonken was a lie. Incubator babies was a lie. WMD's were a lie

    I would suggest we've not gone into a war with justification since WWII.

  8. Re: Donald to with draw US from nuke treaty with Russia.

    All these things need a replacement if one wants to change them. There was no vote to repeal anything before the vote passing the ACA.

    Repeal and Replace, as a phrase, was a farce.

    He openly admits that the Saudis bought space in his buildings and paid $40 million or more for it. We know the Crown Prince rented/leased an entire floor of his hotel, although it seems no one...
