    The insurance companies got their foot in the door in some unholy agreement with Obamacare, and now we have mandatory supplemental insurance. I fervently hope that arrangement goes away with any new...

    I doubt taxes for the vast majority of the citizenry will increase much, if we re-institute progressive tax rates.

    I've never understood how getting some return on the taxes we all pay--one way or the other--translates to "free shit," but I've always resented the waste and fraud that permeates the...

    Hillary did win, by a reasonable margin. They didn't factor in Russia. Or cheating.

    Is there a way to re-establish virtual cross-connects? I have no idea how Magic Jacks work, but that did the trick when I worked in telephony.

    She's an attractive woman, aside from being surpassingly smart. What amazes me, as an old gimp, is the footage of her sprinting through the halls of Congress or dancing in Pride parades, rocking a...

    There are going to be a lot of people who will come up with any excuse not to vote for a woman. What would they prefer, one wonders, some weak, simpering fool? Plenty of those around. The caliber of...

    Elizabeth Warren has plenty of charisma, IMO. Her rally attendees seem to think so, too.

    Biden is supposed to have some, but I don't see any. I guess it depends on the observer.

    I have no doubt. But I've done my penance as a vegetarian, and they'll get my cutlet when they pry it from my cold, dead hands.

    There's conjecture that Columbus was glad to remove himself from Europe because he was a crypto-Jew at a time when the Inquisition loomed large, and people were told by the almighty Church to convert...

    I agree. And the other explorers who landed here never get any credit (Chinese, Northern Europeans, possibly Africans)--maybe because they didn't wreak as much mayhem on earlier inhabitants.
