    Only to vote in the primaries; some states are like that. The rationale being that only Party members should have a say in who the Party is going to support. (To which I say, "Fine. Then let Party...

    Have you noted the marked increase in the number of abortion-related threads on certain RW boards since the Kavanaugh confirmation? Even posters who've never seemed to have any particular interest...

    Kavanaugh was clearly coached to stick to his talking points - It's a conspiracy, I have a letter from all these other women, etc. - and take up as much time as he could with long, rambling,...

    I have to confess I had no idea who he was or who he played on the show, and I'm one of the biggest SoA fans on the planet. I watched every episode numerous times when first broadcast, and I've...

    What the others have written is all very true, William - about big boys and their toys, etc. Perhaps something that hasn't been said - and I hope you don't think I'm too mean for being the one to...

    Hey, but you know the important thing is to get that Wall built, G. Besides, you know...people who are dying don't generally have the strength to get out and vote, anyway.

    I actually think that's two or three different topics, MB, but first - thanks for joining the forum and posting!

    As far as term limits for Supreme Court justices, I'm against it. For one thing I...

    I think you're all channeling Henny Youngman. Doc, some of yours gave me a good chuckle.

    In the late '80s, I was stationed in Long Beach and some of us were given tickets to attend the opening of...

    The hypocrisy is glaring. The same people who rant about "judicial overreach" have no problem supporting an Executive - as long as he is one of theirs, of course - who wants to rule by fiat, as...

    I came of age, as they say, during the heyday of some great rock & roll groups, but I was never really into it like some of my friends were. (I remember I stayed over at a friend's house one night...

    I think that in addition to the fact that, as you say, he's attempting to "run the country" like he ran his financial empire - past tense because, of course, he's completely out of the loop on the...

    I'm afraid that if we don't get a grownup in the Oval Office again soon, the Toddler-in-Chief will inflict irreparable damage to...well, pretty much everything.

    Trump told his supporters at a rally yesterday that it will be their fault if he's impeached - because they did not get out and vote to maintain the Republican majorities in both houses of Congress. ...

    One I didn't go to and probably should have. In the late '80s my Navy P-3 crew was hanging out in the south of France for about a week - rough duty - and some of the guys decided to attend some...

    If this were a Kubrick film, the White House staff would be planning the best way to put him down and make it look like an accident.

    I had it in mind what I thought "socialism" is - as opposed to the way many people use the word - and in looking it up online I found that I was right: "a political and economic theory of social...

    The same people who claim that "it's easy for anyone to get a photo ID" to use in voting will dismiss this as a non-issue. #brownpeoplesproblems

    They've lowered the flag again, and say that it will remain at half-staff "until the day of the internment".

    I've met and spoken with two famous UFO abductees - Whitley Strieber and Travis Walton. Strieber seemed very normal and - no pun intended, of course - down to earth. Walton, not so much.

    Very much in the mold of another Arizona statesman - Barry Goldwater. Particularly toward the end of his life, Goldwater totally lost patience with "conservatives" whose agenda appeared to consist...
