What does my financial status have to do with whether or not Trump is incompetent?
I accept the vote. That doesn't mean I have to like it and the only whiners are Trump and his supporters crying about how unfairly he's being treated by the media because they keep QUOTING HIM.

Survey says: Over 70% of polled doctors think Hillary's health is a serious issue
@Budwick You may be underplaying the seriousness of her illness. They haven't shared whether it's bacterial or viral...

You may be right. So what happens if Hillary is sidelined? Do they pass the baton to Bernie, does it go to TK or do they have another primary?
Why do I get the feeling that the outcome has already been decided and all this stuff is just window dressing?

If we Had the Ability to Provide Health Care for Everyone Should we do it?
The Current Administration is, without a doubt, the Most Corrupt in US History. amirite?
@unknowncondition Collectively we have all failed as citizens to allow any amount of corruption in the government to cause...

Just say no?? That's your solution?
Why?
Because it's worked so well in the past?

I think with the new tax bill the typical American household, two parents, two kids, a few limited liability partnerships, a couple of individual real estate LLC’s, and three or four investment vehicles throwing off streams of passive income, will be doing quite well.
@Budwick Yeah, if you live in one of those blue, high state tax states, your federal tax decrease may get gobbled up. But...

You realize those "cuts" disappear in 10 years and then we all pay more while corporate cuts and inheritance taxes are permanent.

If you were paying attention you'd know that this particular discussion started with abortion.

When you shake your head does it make a rattling sound like a BB in a boxcar.

Do you think women should be forced to have children?
Do you think women should be forced to have children?
@JerryHendrickson You didn't even answer the poll question yourself? My guess would be that you're okay with abortion right up until...

I didn't realize answering the poll was a requirement for having an opinion.
Your guess would be wrong.
You might as well ask questions since you can't answer them.
