Re: Gonna' Be Bloomberg?

Re: Gonna' Be Bloomberg?

Bloomberg is one sharp dude. Of all the Dems, he's the one I can see blasting Trump to pieces in any kind of debate or forum. He can be sarcastic and nasty as hell, but, again, he's also a sharp guy who knows his onions. I [more]

Re: Weed killer -not Roundup

Gee, white vinegar in my sprayer has worked like a charm for me. I sprayed it on the weeds in the sidewalk on a hot sunny morning and had them turning brown and dying that afternoon!

Re: Do scratch-offs have a place in LBYM

A "professional gambler" (he admitted he spent plenty gambling) once told me that, if you want to gamble on a lottery, buy ONE ticket -- not 5 or even 10. "The odds are so high that the extra money for those few extras really won't [more]

Re: letter to the NYTimes re impeachment trial

Seems to me Trump's assertion that this whole thing is "just because the Democrats want to reverse the 2016 election" is totally absurd, and they should clearly state that more often!

No Casualties... And Then...

First, we are told that the Iranian missiles caused no casualties among our troops in the bases attacked. Nobody hurt. Nothing. Our president said so! And he wouldn't lie about THAT, would he?

Come on now. Do you really think all GOP senators would dare honestly vote "guilty"?

For reasons I don't understand, most apparently are afraid to speak up. But there will come a time...

Re: Very productive 28 days!

How many GOP senators will have the moral integrity and the guts to standup for the constitution instead of blind obedience to their "king"?

Amen to all you've said.
