    The Republican failure to pass an Obamacare replacement, tells me that the USA is doomed to have a single payer health care system, eventually.

    There's an old saying, "That guy couldn't get his name in the newspaper if he got arrested!" Well judging from the paucity of coverage on this story, the guy got arrested and he still can't get in the papers! Why isn't this a bigger story? This ONE guy and his family had ALL the Passwords to the Democrat members of various congressional security committees, he gets arrested trying to flee the country with $300 000 in cash, and isn't even FIRED until after his arrest, even though some accounts say the DNC knew about his being a suspect in security breaches since at least Feb 2nd 2017. Something STINKS about this story, and why isn't being reported more by the mainstream media?

    I've noticed a phenomena with microwave ovens and hope someone can explain it. Have you ever noticed that when you place an object in a microwave oven with a turntable, that no matter where you place the object on the turntable, when the cooking cycle is over, the object is in the BACK of the oven. maybe one in 20 or 30 times will the object be in some other position. Every microwave oven with a turntable I've encountered behaves this way. Is it some sort of issue with physics? Is this an artifact of the turntable design?

    This may sound a bit obsessive compulsive, but I have no idea what the traditional rules are for English when Gray and Grey are used. I never feel comfortable with either, both always feel wrong. SOMEBODY must know!

    I think he'll do a very good job. As RNC chair, he had a most difficult job these last 6-8 months balancing the needs of a non traditional candidate with those of a VERY traditional old guard who controlled the money. He impressed the heck out of me. Any thoughts?

    A lot of mixed emotions today. I don't think Trump ever demonstrated that he understood the office of the president. At this point though, I want him to be very successful, just like I wanted Obama to be successful when he won the first time. A successful president means a Successful USA. But I'm VERY happy Hillary Clinton will be denied the Presidency. Her arrogant sense of entitlement always rubbed me the wrong way. And it was that sense of entitlement that prevented her from ever formulating an effective message to the American people. Her de facto message was "More of the same!" when the Sanders supporters were a VERY strong indication that very FEW people, even in the Democratic party, wanted more of the same. Her hubris created a situation where the only option for the American people who wanted change, was Donald Trump. They felt they had better take this chance because if this uprising failed, the political class would tighten down the controls and further efforts at change would be impossible. Obama's increasing politicization of the DOJ, and the IRS would only accelerate under a Hillary Clinton administration. And frankly, that scared the **** out of me. In the end, I held my nose and voted for Trump. I was not happy with my choices, but the bruised apples I was given only allowed for applesauce.

    I'll admit I'm not a Clinton fan, though I'm not totally comfortable with Trump either, so I think I'm a 'reasonably' neutral observer here. But all the negatives Clinton faces in this election cycle are negatives of her own invention. And they are negatives that she could have easily avoided if she had just thought about what it was she was doing and the logical consequences of what would happen if they got out. (And negative stuff always gets out, always). Why can't she see this and change her behavior? This is the biggest puzzle of all.

One quote of the politifact link stands out to me, "This set-up means the Clinton foundation’s finances get complicated in ways other foundations do not. Partly because of that, one of the leading independent groups that track charities -- Charity Navigator -- has been flummoxed about how to analyze that foundation and has stopped rating it, at least for now." Charges of play for pay, and non standard accounting practices, turns this controversy into into more than the usual gotcha politics. This needs serious investigation.

Don't the liberals think the USA has the right to protect its borders? Do you think the USA should just disappear? What do YOU think is a viable way to deal with this very real problem? I'm not going to set restrictions on how people should respond, that's for 13 year olds, but I'd like to hear some thoughtful responses from the liberals.
