  1. In other words you will vote for the Democratic candidate for the rest of your life. It is the party of Trump and it's never coming back to anything better.
  2. I thought an expert was a person that came to a business from at least 200 miles away.
  3. I believe there is a federal court decision that bars teaching ID because it's a religious belief not science.
  4. Maybe they live by the. ethic "It's morally wrong to allow suckers to keep their money."
  5. Blocking an investigation won't hurt any GOP Senators or Congressmen. Their base is 100% behind the Big Lie and wants to do everything they can to minimize the violent insurrection. Voting for a bipartisan commission will increase the chance of getting primaried.
  6. Do you have an example of any US exec that does business in China who ever made a similar comment that didn't apologize? I'm not sure any of them have for the last 40 years and if they did they probably got fired.
  7. This isn't something I care about much. However the US and most of the other nations of the world have a "1 China" policy. That means they recognize that Taiwan is part of China. Obviously this is at odds with reality but ever since Mao won the Chinese Civil War the US has only recognized 1 China. Until 1979 it was the ROC but then we switched to the PRC. It's both parties too, Reagan, Bush I, Bush II and Trump all had the chance to change the policy as well as the Democratic Presidents and AFAIK none of them ever tried to. John Cena supports the official, long time, US position that Taiwan is not a separate country from China but he's the person you criticize when I doubt there's any big corporate CEO doing business in China that would dare sayTaiwan is a separate country.
  8. In 1964 Ted Kennedy and Strom Thurmond were both US Senators and members of the Democratic Party. I don't think there would be any problem finding current Democrats with Kennedy's political philosophy. There are no Democrats that are anything like Thurmond.
  9. . THe vast majority of people who say they are conservative now are the people who get to define what conservatism is. What it is now is Trumpism. You want to say that's different than what it's been for most of the last 60 years I won't argue
  10. I'm not trying to define what "conservative" means. I just think the majority of people who describe themselves as conservative get to define what conservative means. Trumpers would decribe themselves as conservative first before GOPers. I'd use different word than conservative but it would get me banned I really hope reasonable people like you get control of the conservative faction but I doubt it will happen.
  11. Not really. The Trump wing of the GOP sees themselves as the real Conservatives. I don't think the Trumpers care about being Republican as much as they care about care about being conservative.
  12. No, not even a little. The majority people who define thmselves get to decide who is a "true conservative". I see how it's changed over the last 50 years. Are you denying that most people who say they are conservativse now, are die hard Trumpers?
  13. Who gets to decide who is "Conservative"? It seems to me that the majority of people who define themselves as "Conservative" should be the people who get to define the term. At the moment the vast majority of self identifying Conservatives are die hard Trumpers and they regard everyone who isn't as not conservative. It doesn't make you a libera but most of the conservative don't see you as part of the Red Team.. I used to think Liberal and Conservative were defined by policy positions held over a long period of time. Maybe the Liberals now are not all that much different than RFK was in 1968 but the Conservatives are very different than Richard Nixon in 1968 or Reagan in the 1970s
  14. I agree. It doesn't bother me when the many far right wing posters on here insult various left wing, center left, or centrist pols. I only object to the moderation standards that favor the far right posters. Apparently that's the standard the site owner wants from the mods.
  15. People who denigrated the last President's mental acuity would get suspensions.The moderation standards for this insulting POTUS appear to be much more lenient.
  16. The last dozen years seems to contradict that. I don't understand why.
  17. Democrats praising her probably expedites the end of her leadership position. I expect some ultra right opponent beats her in the primary next year.
  18. I was tempted to respond on twitter but thought better of it.
  19. The Knight is on E4 not D5. What is the meaning of that?
  20. But certainly not the fault of anyone at a higher level.
  21. They must of all tripped and injured themselves.
  22. I think Md doesn't want DC and DC would rather be on its own.
  23. When I lived in the DC metro area ~25 years ago I was under the impression that most of the people who worked for the federal government lived in Maryland and Virginia not in DC itself. I'd guess the same was / is true for the elected Reps and Senators. I can't recall either Virginia or Maryland having any additional power due to proximity. There's been discussion on this board about how the divide in the country is divide between rural and urban area.The rural areas of the country have more than their share of power - at least if it's based on population and economic impact. Making DC a state, IMO, would reduce that disparity.
