    I can't think of a dumber aspiration, personally. If you're a team booster, wouldn't you yell encouragement without needing a phalanx of "leaders" to spur you on? Dangerous stunts only make it...

    I can think of few people more deserving. Well done!

    Population growth, on a global scale, is inevitable for now--but my take on it is that a little growth, or at least maintaining the population, is a sign of national health. I believe if it weren't...

    This article says 2 million--highest since 2006--so those must be some seriously unpopulated states. And only a fraction of those are getting in.

    I was so relieved to hear Greg Abbott say that! (Seriously though, that was one of the most clueless pronouncements I've heard lately--right up there with "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body...

    I don't know anyone who believes an open border is a workable solution, but there are international rules covering refugees. Our immigration policy was broken years ago, and compounded by the...

    If a person finds their true vocation--paid or unpaid-and embraces it, it's a beautiful thing. Or if they find an occupation they find pleasing, that's not a bad way to live, either. I don't think...

    I consider my cell a necessary tool that is always handy, and I occasionally use it to listen to TuneIn, but I vastly prefer my laptop when home. Like IrisLilies, I find the tiny screen irritating. I...

    They say if you marry for money, you'll end up earning it, but I don't call that "supporting yourself." Also, if you're an employed slacker, you're still someone's employee, so that's out. The trust...

    My admittedly semi-informed opinion is that flu shots are rarely as effective as most other vaccines--that they're mainly a product of an educated guess as to which strains will emerge in any given...

    I've noticed that--so many of these people end up looking exactly the same--like Barbie dolls.

    Update: Still a bit musty and medicinal, but I've grown accustomed to it, and will probably re-order. It's cheaper than kombucha; I need to make some of that.

    I've never had a flu shot, and I may have had the flu in '94--or maybe that was just a bad cold. I tend to think the latter.

    Trumpism is an ongoing problem.

    Adam Kinzinger is one of the few decent Republicans who have called Trump and his bootlickers out on the Big Lie. We need more like him.
