    This is way way way off topic, please forgive me. Did you by any chance pass through Sandown, NH? That is where I started out in life and I've been thinking about Sandown recently. Rob

DH believes that Trump is doing a great job, even though he admits he's a jerk. He believes you can be an a$$ and still be a good president. I think a lot of people feel that way.
    Catherine, Thank You for your explanation. I believe you are right - Biden is not capable of generating a cult following nor stirring up such a high level of interest. Trump, regardless of what I think of him, does have die hard fanatical suppporters. Who would not question any move he made. Scary. But to the point - Biden is not going to inspire support anywhere near that level. I as an uberliberal on thus board would rather that the nomination went elsewhere. Rob

    Biden sent us some lovely stickers. Not sure where we'll put them, perhaps on the inside of one of our kitchen cabinet doors or some other semi-secluded place so that someone will discover them years from now and be curious...

    Apologies that they're upside down. Apparently the forum software feels similar to me in regards to his campaign.

    I didn't but SO did. Early on in this election cycle he was a big supporter of "vote blue, no matter who" and gave all the candidates $25 apiece. He has since narrowed his funding down to the three candidates remaining that he would actually be excited about. Joe didn't make the cut. But he likes the "joe cool" sticker (the one with joe in his sunglasses) enough to take it to work and put up in his office somewhere. The rest will become hidden time capsules in random places in our apartment.

    Not entirely:
    "Puppy breeder, kennel shut down by St. Charles County for unsafe conditions, 170 dogs removed"

    Thatís like saying restaurants are not entirely legal because one got shut down for health code violations.

    ILís point was that puppy mills are legal in her state. Trying to say that isnít the case by pointing out one instance of law violation is like saying public education isnít entirely legitimate due to the actions of a few abusive teachers.

    The fact remains that puppy mills are legal in that state, the people and their elected representatives having assented to their (regulated) existence. We can hand the central government the power to override a greater range of local decisions because we donít like what they decided in any particular instance, but if we do it enough we may as well give up on the idea of federalism.
