    Certainly the better camera is a great thing but I mostly use it for a phone and texts and stuff, not selfies. I have an iPhone so young people will identify with me and think I’m cool.

    Since you have now come out I will too. My series of Iphones are the only Apples products I have ever owned. I watch cooler younger people struggle to do simple things on their very superior and complex Android devices and just shrug my shoulders thinking how easy I have it compared to them. It just works.

    That kind of describes Hillary Clinton. If she were a man, she'd be considered a hardass who can get things done. Since she's a woman and a liberal (sort of), she's the bitch-devil incarnate.

    Winsor seems to dislike female D politicians almost as reflexibly as he does Muslims. I'm not sure what to make of it. The general hate on the right for Hillary seems to be the result of a long term focused slander campaign in the FOX and friends media. The hate goes beyond ordinary political dislike and seems visceral.

    Not one single person on this site has called all Republicans Nazis. That's just an artifact of your hypersensitivity.

    Look at the title of this thread and try to imagine it not leading to Rs feeling that they are being called nazis.

    He could have let another democrat run given his lack of personal appeal due to his age.

    Who? No lifelong politician at this level gives up power willingly. Someone would have had to take it from him. The roster of potential nominees in 2020 contained no one better.

    Agree. Its gets lost in the noise sometimes but about 50% of all Americans are republicans. IMO only 10% are racists. Keep in mind that democrats have racists in their party as well.

    All people are racist to some extent, including black people and other minorities. It's part of tribalism and being human. But we can each control our behaviors. Trump and it seems many conservatives choose to use that fact to divide us from each other and gain power through manipulating our feelings. None of us can really ever know what is in another's heart. So we must judge them by their actions. The current leader of the R party behaves in a racist manner and since he is the leader the others are followers. Clearly his followers are willing to accept his racism. That means they are behaving in a racist manner. This is not stereotyping, this is fact.

    No, just confusing.  For calling them what?  Hitler?  That doesn't make a lot of sense.  Have black people been compared to Hitler?  I mean, they may well have been, but I haven't heard anything like that.

    I can’t keep up. I’m just not smart enough I guess.

    True, but those that aren't are doing a very poor job of dealing with those that are. 

    They may not have an association with Hitler, but they do have one with Trump. They may not support all that he stands for but they are more than willing to tolerate it which may as well be the same thing.

    I can't see Trump giving her another position, especially since she didn't complete her U-Turn with the requisite "Trump is the best choice for America!"  She just said she couldn't support Biden, so she has to vote for Trump.

    And that's what most conservatives will do. But thankfully, not all of them. Someday Trump will be a spent force. Hopefully in a matter of months.

    Makes me wonder if the change in verbiage to climate change rather than global warming allows people to not investigate the real reason for climate change and if the poster should read - global warming. 

    I believe you are onto something there. Climate change seems to be a term used to soften and hide the true meaning. It is dishonest. Global warming is the driving force causing the so called climate change and it is better to state that right up front and not pussyfoot around it.

    I can't tell if you're being sarcastic, but in thinking about it - why do we need four gas stations on every corner? And if city governments limited the number of gas stations per x number of blocks?

    That would be an anti-free market action. And I have noticed you having trouble picking up on sarcasm before. I'll give you a hint. If you think it might be, then it almost certainly is.

    In defense of the college students, it's doubtful most of them even know what they're protesting.

    They are protesting the extreme collective punishment and the blatant attempt at ethnic cleansing being meted out by Israel at the moment. Most of them probably don't completely understand the history and what led up to it. But they do understand that it has gone too far.

    Live in your own cozy little world where everything is black or white. The world has no color and people are the same everywhere. I’m covering a security problem, but in response you can’t say anything reasonable or offer options on how to protect people from this flaw. You are an ordinary consumer and nothing more. All that will be left after you is a ridiculous digital footprint and memory for one generation. People who move sports will live in the minds and hearts for centuries.

    Blah, blah,blah……

    I don't get how Abbot got to a pardon. Perry drove into a crowd, Foster pulled a gun ( a veteran also, so it's not a stretch to think he was going to end Perry if he continued to use the vehicle as a weapon), Perry sees the gun, pulls on Foster and kills him - but he was engaged in self-defense? Silliness.    

    It seems quite clear to me how Abbot got there. He first made up his mind to pardon the guy, then appointed people to the pardon board in order to enable him to do so. He decided to do it as soon as the conviction came in, possibly sooner. Why? Because the dead man was a BLM protester and Abbot wanted to make a political statement to the base. It is not mere silliness, it is an outrage.
