  1. Hi Mark, Re: 'mobbed by her own colleagues for daring to stray from nutjob orthodoxy' Would you say the same thing about Geo. Will & his columns about Trump of the last few years? IMO Geo. Will is one of the most committed conservatives in the world. Jerry Baumchen
  2. Hi Nigel, Re: 'Happy to be wrong!' No one on here is perfect. Welcome to the club. Jerry Baumchen
  3. Hi Ken, Re: Pardoning Nixon was sold as for the "good of America" Ford also said that he did it because he thought that Nixon was suicidal; and he did it to prevent that possibility. Personally, I agreed with Ford; and still do. Jerry Baumchen
  4. Hi Wendy, PERFECT! People who were not there in '72 probably cannot understand just how popular Nixon was then. IMO he would have won easily without the whole CREEP thing. Jerry Baumchen
  5. Hi Robert, Maybe he will become the Harold Stassen of the 21st century. 'his name became most identified with his status as a perennial candidate.' Harold Stassen - Wikipedia 'We have to turn the election over,” Trump said from the Oval Office' 'This was an election that we won easily,” he said. “We won it by a lot.' Biden seeks unity as Trump stokes fading embers of campaign (apnews.com) If you're going to dream, dream bigly. Jerry Baumchen
  6. Hi Mark, Just for you, I re-read the entire piece. Now, show me where it says: ‘but it's not the same as snitching on your neighbor because he was in his backyard without a COVID mask on.’ I'll settle for anything similar. Jerry Baumchen
  7. Hi Nigel, A lot of people did not like rationing during WW II. But, they got thru it & it went away, You will survive it also. And, some places are doing it here in Oregon. You can chose not to frequent them. Jerry Baumchen PS) You're starting to sound like Mark Harju.
  8. Hi Bill, Re: "success"="growth." I do believe that is what Keynesian Economics is based on. Continual expansion is not sustainable on a finite planet. Jerry Baumchen
  9. Hi folks, And another Trumper has it: 'a member of Trump’s campaign legal team, Boris Epshteyn, announced Wednesday he had tested positive' The Latest: Trump won't be at Giuliani election fight event (apnews.com) Jerry Baumchen
  10. Hi Wendy, Re: 'He's right' IMO it depends upon context. He is not right about wearing masks, etc. Re: 'but sometimes there are exigent circumstances.' And sometimes it is simply that people can be stupid. I despise wearing a mask; however, I want to live a little longer & I want my family & friends to live also. Jerry Baumchen
  11. Hi Robert, I am going to disagree. I have long said that this election would be a referendum on Trump. The R's held the Senate & made gains in the House. That says that a lot of Americans voted for the R's. They then did not vote for Trump. Could he have won if he had done something different? Who knows; he lost & it is now history. Jerry Baumchen
  12. Hi Mark, You have posted: ‘The gov of Oregon is urging citizens to report non-compliance with the latest Royal Proclamations.’ ‘but it's not the same as snitching on your neighbor because he was in his backyard without a COVID mask on.’ ‘Nonetheless, I stand by my remarks.’ The governor of Oregon ( where I live ) never said to turn in your neighbor for being in the backyard without a mask. Do your homework & try to be correct in the future. Jerry Baumchen
  13. Hi Robert, Well done. Actually, I am amazed that you found it. And, I stand corrected: He did not say, 'Life is not fair,' he said, 'Life is unfair.' I'll try to remember that. Jerry Baumchen
  14. Hi Ken, Re: ' It is a difficult task to make emergency aid be fair.' During a press conference, when asked a question I no longer remember, JFK replied, 'Life is not fair.' I have always remembered those words. Jerry Baumchen
  15. Hi Ken, Yup, probably for more years than either of us can remember. And, just so you know; I was only trying to help. And, I am also a terrible on-screen proof reader. Jerry Baumchen
