albaby, was it my imagination, then, when at a Republican gathering/rally whatever-the-heck-it-was, I heard the crowd yelling, "LET THEM DIE! LET THEM DIE!"

Did I imagine that?


You are misremembering it. It was a

Would you disagree Al, that there are many Republicans who have taken the position that they shouldn't have support any social program, no matter how deserving the recipients?

So let's add some nuance. The mine closes. I'm a coal miner. There's no place for me to go (as a coal miner). So I turn to alcohol or opioids (as is happening). Am I now a goofus when I started as a gallant (and would be again if the

Let's say I decide (assuming I were still young) to get into coal mining. Not a dream job, but it's available. Does the fact that coal is phasing out affect whether that is a good choice? Seems to me I've chosen a path that will end

Was planning on working in a factory, at what was often a very stressful job, a poor decision when the factory closes? Anything that doesn't work out is a poor decision. The results of those "poor" decisions can vary widely
