    Are they in collusion? Are the Clinton's using Trump? Or is Trump an idiot?

    I am not a man given to wild speculation. I am firmly planted in reality with a healthy level of cynicism in the tank. However, after these past few months, I have a sneaking suspicion that the Trump campaign is either a Trojan horse meant to hand the election to Hillary on a silver platter...

    Ok, I was WRONG.

    I posted earlier today that 1200 deaths last year from police shootings was horrendous and that is represents a bigger problem of police militarization. I was wrong. The numbers do NOT bear that out. http://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/cpp08.pdf According to the Justice department, there were...

    Why permit refugees into your country?

    I don't understand the rush by certain people in Western civilizations to permit refugees to enter their country on permanent basis. It appears to me the net effect is a drain on social services, a rift in community cohesion and the transplantation of foreign culture inside ones own borders...

    Are mass shootings and higher gun deaths an acceptable part of a free society?

    We live in a country in which we are guaranteed the right to bear arms in order to defend ourselves and our property. In order to maintain that right we sometimes must deal with mass shootings. Are these shootings a necessary part, or an inevitable side effect of that right?

    Do victims bear any responsibility for sexual assault if they are 'blackout' drunk?

    This is not about 'victim shaming' but rather about responsibility for one's own safety. Are you responsible to keep yourself OUT of such situations?

    I am so looking forward to November and December.

    I'm very anxious about two things...what do the Trumpsters say when he loses and what physical condition Hillary is in when she's inaugurated. Neither will be good I predict. I think the sites like Breitbart and InfoWars will come unglued and all the angry, so very angry, Trump supporters who...

    I'll give a nod of approval to President Obama.

    I had claimed earlier that he would apologize to Japan for the A-Bombs, but he did no such thing. He was a perfect statesman today without being a toady of the politically correct contingent. Sympathy for victims but no apology as Obama makes historic Hiroshima visit He expressed sympathy...

    Where is the 'intelligence' in the CIA?

    According to the NY Times today the CIA is aiding the arming of Syrian rebels. What a great idea. After all, it worked so well for us in Afghanistan didn't it? What could we possibly have to gain from these shenanigans? Is the American need to export 'democracy' so great that we would...

    Hello Everyone.

    I've been lurking here for a while now, and I like the robust debate you guys have going on. As a refugee from the old Slate boards, I've been looking for a new place to call home. I'm an Independent who leans right on fiscal issues, left on social issues, and Libertarian on foreign policy...
