Fair point about accomplishing anything, George, I was thinking along the same lines as I typed my last post!

Of course the past is a useful reference, being the only one we have. I just wish that discussions of national-level topics could focus more on the topics themselves, rather t…

Carlos, the Rightist media does the same, as I'm sure you know. And I agree it's sad, but, you know, paying customers...

Okay, I finally get it. Some, like Carlos and George, are posting to show the hypocrisy of the left. Show it to whom? Most people on this forum already believe in it; most of the "left" disagree it exists, and those of us in the center see it on both sides. So good luck accomplishi…

I'm also in favor of voter ID, but that doesn't require the voter to disclose their vote. The vote counts more than the name.

To post on this forum, I've already met the requirement of providing an "ID." Plus $14.

No hand-wringing; just answering your post. [beam]

You mean the Left and Center, don't you? [huh]
