    I don't think anyone is advocating an all or nothing approach, consider the reality of middle ground.

    Yes, but that's the next generations problem. Paul Ryan should be ashamed of himself for attempting to stop its eventual demise.

    You gotta be careful about who's reporting this sort of thing, according to the Secret Service the number of threats against Obama were comparable to the previous two Presidents, Clinton and Bush.

    Minor side note: Secret Service protection was changed two decades ago to 10 years after leaving office but the legislation was then repealed by President Obama during his second term.

    That's not a fair question. Facts and reason only harsh a good buzz.

    I must admit I'd forgotten about the 25th Amendment option until reading Ross Douthat's article yesterday. Surprisingly, I find it oddly satisfying.

    If 80% were already decided, where's the payoff in wooing them?

    Maybe if California were a bit more politically diverse.....

    Your vote mattered in California, mine mattered in Ohio. California delivered 20% of the electoral votes Clinton needed to win the election while Ohio delivered 6% of the electoral votes she needed...

    As a legal concept, one person one vote has never applied to Presidential contests due to the Electoral College and it is not used in the Senate due to it's limit of two representatives per state....
  12. One person, one vote still applies, it's just...

    One person, one vote still applies, it's just that people have forgotten that the Federal Government is a client of the States and the Electoral College transmits the individual state's wishes to the...

    I don't think so. I honestly believe people were fed up with the status quo and saw a non-politician as the best option. In many cases, a vote for Trump was a message to the Republican Party in much...

    I have a little AA recharge station set up in the basement where my youngest grandson often spends the entire weekend playing Xbox games. Those controllers really go through batteries with constant...

    Excepting the pompous part, I didn't suggest you did unless you consider yourself the consensus view. Assumptions are often bi-directional.

    He is a lifelong Democrat now posing as a Republican, so no surprise there.
  17. Yes, that may put us back on the path of a...

    Yes, that may put us back on the path of a Constitutional Republic. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
  18. Well, you know how we racist, xenophobic,...

    Well, you know how we racist, xenophobic, ignorant (and lets not forget pompous) conservatives are. Just read any of the post election threads in this forum and you'll see the popular consensus leads...

    In a world as dynamic as ours, there are very few things that never change. The modern liberal's view of the perceived opposition being one of the standouts.

    One of the great things about getting older is the benefit of experiencing long years of familiar themes. People have been presenting Republican voters in this manner since at least the Reagan years,...

    There are multiple versions of the Mac operating system. The most current is version 10.12.
    Same with Safari, I believe the most current version is 10.1.
    Procedures may vary depending on version.

    I think some of us are having problems understanding exactly what it is you're trying to delete, at least I am. I'm thinking these are probably temporary files similar to cookies which are used to...

    Yes, in many ways, but mostly just an opportunist. He'll vote for anyone who gives him what he wants.

    My brother-in-law had two of those phones, he sold them both and then was refused a third. Boy was he pissed at having to buy minutes from Trac-Fone.
