But this brainiac thinks that they need to register for the draft so that they can serve, except that there won't be a draft. He is daft on the draft; say what branch of the armed services did !bej serve in again ? A second read through couldn't hurt.

That (Formation) is indeed one odious video; not only is the music terrible, but the lyrics are stupid and offensive to anyone with a brain in their heads.

Exactly, James D - throw the bums out. Nothing at all revolutionary, or new, about that, at least not within the context of the U.S. system.

James D, what's the alternative? Tear down the walls? Shout out the window that you're not going to take it anymore? What does one do, I wonder, once they've committed to not taking it anymore? We have a democratic process, it's the best process in the world, we have to work with it to achieve change. The world has gone to hell, I don't disagree with that but, barring anarchy, change involves hard work and patience.

"Under Sanders, income and jobs would soar, economist says" That's the headline of the CNN Money piece, and they don't seem to have any clue how absurd that notion is; apparently, from the editor's note at the end of the article, they had to amend the article to include the little fact that the economist in question has done work for Bernie. http://money.cnn.com/2016/02/08/news/economy/sanders-income-jobs/

Hey, with my bemused Mom I saw A Hard Day's Night on the big screen in 1964, as an eight-year-old with a Beatles haircut. I wasn't mad as hell then (I've never been, really), though that Network speech could have been given in 1964 or '54 or just about any other time in the history of mankind. And, at any point in time, it's a laughably stupid exercise to go to the window and shout about how you don't like what's going on in the world. Change it, that's all. It takes a lot of effort and compromise and sober thinking and resolute action to turn a big ship around; hotheads are just a distraction riffing off the lower instincts of man.

Doesn't Dixville Notch, NH vote in 20 minutes or something like that?

"...credit downgrades and other things a governor "can get done" in New Jersey" Yep, five years or so ago, when Christie was presumed to be headed to favorite status as the 2016 nominee, it wasn't just that his self-serving 2012 keynote speech and animated Obama-hugging hadn't yet happened - he also was popular with voters of both parties in his home state and offered the possibility that a Republican might actually carry New Jersey. Now he's toast at home.

Bush 2d in new NH poll... http://www.theecps.com/ And Wapo says something has "clicked" for him the last few days... https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/something-has-clicked-for-jeb-bush-in-the-last-few-days/2016/02/08/04564aa6-ce81-11e5-abc9-ea152f0b9561_story.html If he finishes a clear 2d in NH, he stands to do pretty well (like, win it) in SC with GW on the trail. Just sayin'.

Beyonce needs to go away. Her music is atrocious. Her attitude sucks. She's a really good singer who hasn't ever done anything really memorable (really poor when it comes to choosing material). As Etta James made clear, Bey sure isn't any Etta James. And she suffers from what most black Americans her age suffer from - a chaotic view of what collective black history should mean as regards going forward with their own individual lives. If hrt ever shows backup wondering about what to say to the poor progs who think the right has any control over anything in DC, read this Lois Lerner used a gov't agency to harrass conservatives. I'm aware of that. As I recall, though, the crux of our conversation was that I took exception to an article you lauded which stated that the real enemy was the liberals who enabled terrorists through lax immigration policies (not the terrorists themselves). And that you believed that my suggestion that those laws can by changed at the ballot box was ineffective, though you didn't express what your solution might be.

Jane, thanks much for the nice comment, and I've also got nothing against proud cootie carriers. There are some expert limerick composers in the house.

Gus, since you put Jeb in caps, and I know that's your signature style, I'm concluding you're excited about his candidacy. Nothing you say now will convince me otherwise.

Off-topic, but I see that Adam Liptak has penned another one of those "How come Clarence Thomas never says anything?" articles for the Times, but this one doesn't conclude that it's because Thomas is stupid (I seem to remember that was the shameful conclusion the last time 'round). For me, one of the more galling utterances from Obama was when he opined that it was a mistake for Thomas to have been chosen for the Court. Of course any liberal thinks that, but for Obama, who had an upper middle-class upbringing, to disparage a man with the experiences of Clarence Thomas..ughh.

So, just a word about a post from FTL on the last thread: "hrtshpdbox, Just as the left are the west's enemy within who work overtime to enable the jihadist enemy without, *you* and your fellow GOPe-pushing squishes are the right's enemy within who work tirelessly to enable the western leftist enemy without. We are where we are because of you." Oh, yes, the word I promised: Nonsense. Anyway, I'm down with Cruz, Trump, Bush (I'm collecting signatures to get Jeb on the ballot in Pennsylvania, yay squishy me!), Rubio, Kasich. And the Bern for the upset.

"And I laugh and laugh and laugh. " When you tire of laughing, tell me what the solution is that you (or the author of the "it's all the fault of the liberals" article) have for the dilemma. I mean, if not the apparently ineffective route of electing better legislators whom, you might hope, will appoint better jurists? And, if you can allow that there are both conservatives and liberals in this world, what counsel might you give to a liberal who feels that the right (or Wall Street, or the Illumanati or whatever) controls the entire Federal government? When the ballot box won't work, what's next? Maybe Donald Trump is the answer - he definitely strikes me as the sort who would make Obama's use of executive orders look picayune.
"...the left is not longer interested in participating in "civilized democracy."" Precisely what the left would say about the right, and while they may tire of just voting Dem and wish instead to take up arms against conservatives to get rid of us once and for all, the rule of law prevents that and helps keeps us a civilized society.
"The left creates the crisis..." They don't, really, it's created by Islamic fundamentalists. And the "left" can't even properly be accused of enabling the crisis-creators, because it's American law itself that admits Muslims, protects residents from overreach by law enforcement organizations, and provides legal aid to those who commit crimes. Maybe the author objects to those basic foundations of democracy, but surely he can't believe they all sprang forth from the "left". By the same token, in a civilized democracy the only place to defeat the ideas and agendas of those you oppose is to beat them at the ballot box.
"Maybe you should read the entire piece, hrt." OK, I read it, the quote you included here needs no further context, and I think the author overstates the complicity of liberals. Granted they're dummies and dangerous, but they can be beat at the ballot box - it's a lot harder to keep the terrorists themselves at bay. You can't say it's Neville Chamberlain, not Hitler, who needs to be defeated (alright, you can say it, but it's preposterous).
"The Jihad would not be a significant threat without the collaboration of the left." Presumably the left has been causing mischief since the 7th century, then, because that's roughly when Muslims began killing in the name of jihad.
GOP top five in order: Cruz, Trump, Bush, Rubio, Kasich
"Now, loose vs lose is not as bad as there/their/they're or its/it's.." It's plenty dumb, though (and maybe less forgivable than its/it's).
