Re: FBI Uniform Crime Report: Murders Down, Self-Defense Up in 2019

It'll be interesting to see how much the numbers changed from the preliminary report last January . At first glance, it looks like the final numbers are significantly higher--as in not as good--than were the preliminary figures. What's a little bit odd is that I'm on all of the FBI's public mailing ...

Re: debate = BUY SUPPLIES!

Watched the whole thing. Even DVRed it (which disk space will soon be deleted without a rewatch). Regrettably, it looked to me as if Trump took the whole thing way too much for granted. As if with a few jabs Sleepy Joe would be reduced to stammering, drooling, and talking about his 180 years in offi...

Re: Joe Biden

Or does he know he lied? He may really think he went there. By now he may even think he's black, maybe even Corn Pop himself. No. Not Corn Pop. Corn Pop was a really bad dude who used a ton of pommade in his hair. Joe remembers Corn Pop. Or was that Jiffy Pop? Soda Pop? But, man, either way, all th...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

A) How did the TP Times legally get personal and private tax return information? B) If it's real, why are they refusing to show the evidence to Trump's attorney? A copy of a tax return wouldn't have the informant's name on it, and if it did it could be redacted. C) There can't be any bias in the fac...

Re: Our worst nightmare

I would not call her stupid necessarily, but she has a different definition of land-locked than I do, considering the Mississippi River runs through Minneapolis and then all the way to New Orleans. She is also leaving because she doesn't like the weather extremes (20 year mega-drought and resulting...

Re: Joe Biden

My understanding of the law, and this could be wrong, is that the party controls their nominee's slot. If anything happens to the nominee between the convention and the electoral college ballot, the party can name any other qualified person to the slot. If it happens after the electoral college vot...

Re: Texas GOP Urges Abbott to ‘Open Texas Now’

Just curious. Does anybody recognize more than one or two names on the State Republican Executive Committee (SREC)?

Re: Five James Bond guns stolen in brazen robbery in England

Andy's got the only reason I can possibly think of. Certainly it wasn't an experiment to see how much lint can accumulate in the firing mechanism. ;-) Turns out there aren't many good pictures of this small, ugly gun on the web. You'll have to use your imagination to figure out what the pistol would...

Re: Joe Biden

An article today in the liberal mouthpiece, "The Independent," states that what Biden needs to do is promote his OWN choice for the Supreme Court, and that will help him get elected. It says the one, overwhelming best choice is......Stacey Abrams. Holy smokes.... they're serious, too. Dang you! I s...
