Re: How do you make your 'treat' coffee?

At one time, I ground my beans fresh every day. But I've gone lazy. A dolce gusto machine with several coffee choices. In winter, I will sometime do a shot of decaf, with something. Right now I have spiced rum, and Irish Cream in the cupboard. But the selection varies. It's a nice treat on a frigid ...

Re: Iran Will Not Let Trump Rip Up Nuclear Deal, President Rouhani Says

This is an international agreement. The embargo it replaced was falling apart anyway. Obama and Kerry (and other countries diplomats) did an amazing job getting this done. Not only does this do what it does on paper, it gives Iran an opening to join the world of reasonable nations. It won't happen r...

Re: The "Right to Vote"

It is not just a right. it is an affirmation.

Will prisoner voting tip elections? Certainly not. But it will affirm that they have rights...and responsibilities.
Let's do that.

Re: Bernie Sanders Goes On The Warpath As Trump Nominee Signals Cuts To Social Security

I doubt Trump plans to dismantle Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. This prick Bernie's going off about is from my home state and he is truly a prick of cosmic proportions. Even so I don't see Trump going after Social Security etc. but he may go after the bureaucracy that runs them. If there i...

Re: PSA - It' Flu Vaccine Time!

I get it every year too. Some years I get some mild symptoms for a bit, but I never get the flu.

It's offered at work. It surprises me that the majority of employees don't get it. And many of them...get the flu.

Re: ... The Clintons Are ‘Being Wiped Off the Map In Democratic Politics’

The Clintons are of an age, and have lost a huge election. Yes, fade away. Can the Republican House let them go? There's talk of MORE hearings. That would be very foolish. Don't poke an old lady. Who will not go away? The Obama coalition. They're not old; they're not stupid; they won twice. And Bara...

Re: President Trump's Cabinet & SCOTUS Appointments

Maybe Romney will be offered the job. Maybe he'll take it. I have real doubts. John Bolton is a nonstarter. He is eager to go to war, wherever, whenever. The Donald is not. It won't happen. Giuliani? The Donald might be ok with him, but the family understands that there can only be one hothead, the ...

Re: President Trump's Cabinet & SCOTUS Appointments

Looks like another entrenched Republican establishment choice for Attorney General: Senator Jeff Sessions (R - Alabama) There's definitely an unwelcomed pattern developing here. The only thing to like about this guy is his name. Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III It's aristocratic southern, and pret...
