Re: a Turkey waits to be plucked.

Are there any signs (say, in public opinion polls) that the US voting public, true to form as defined by past history, may elect a predominantly Democrats House of Reps. later this year? Or do you think that the fact that this year the economy is growing at over 4% p.a. will hoodwink voters into re...

Re: Thank you New Zealand

But with the so-called "Continuing Anglican" movement, nowadays it may be the former, as socially conservative Anglican parishes look for an ecclesiastical home more in line with their beliefs. So within the Anglican communion there is a body of opinion that holds that the duty of the Church is to ...

Lol anyone else have a pick?
I'd go with low information voters, but then each of you would just assign that to your respective arguments. ;)

Re: a Turkey waits to be plucked.

This authoritarian club of Erdogan, Trump and Putin (and junior partner Duterte) is rather scary to me. I just hope some uppance comes for Trump before his supporters let him pass his 'enabling act'! :lol: I doubt whether Trump could ever persuade even a Republican controlled Congress to give him s...

Re: John McCain your name is "Swamp Mudd"

This whole thing is a mishmash of out of context partial quotes mixed with histrionic innuendo: expertly crafted bullshit. Agreed! What do you think it is moves these characters to imitate the lack of integrity of their political heroes on line? There's a lot of hatred out there these days. There's...

Re: The Canada Saudi Arabian war of 2018!

KSA has ordered all students studying in Canada home, so in one stroke we have expelled some 15 000 sleeper agents! More likely your universities have lost their income from university fees and your landlords income from their rents. Economic loss to Canada. Also I do believe that sleeping with goa...

Re: The November 2018 Congressional election mega thread

Not at the federal level. We have way too much government, we need to reduce it by 75% or so. That would basically be Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and the military. The US should cut the others but spare the military. So much for the theory that foreigners don't want the U.S. to give them h...
