re: Can someone explain the mindset of a liberal/progressive? - Volumnia
It's a little odd that you can't see things from another perspective, even if you disagree. For the most part, it's just a difference in priority. While it seems like your priorities are generally cost and security, other people feel that the environment, equality and empathy are more important. I d...

re: I keep hearing people say how "scary" it is that people are supporting Trump - Volumnia
What I find most disturbing is that he doesn't seem at all thoughtful. He says the first thing he thinks and then stubbornly sticks to it. Complex issues don't seem to get any more analysis or review than deciding what he wants for lunch. The decisions a president make seem like they would require t...

re: Why was jindal hated so much? - Volumnia
That's a good point. You can scratch my one positive. Realistically, that's what running government like a business means. You can't expect to accomplish anything if you rely on $40k/yr state employees who leave at 4:00 every day and can't be fired. ...

re: Why did Vitter do so poorly this time in a statewide election - Volumnia
I think people just don't like Vitter. It felt like he never really took a hit from his scandal, and was more arrogant and entitled than ever. Then, he has a reputation for being a nasty person. People wanted to see him fail. The arrogance of not showing up for debates combined with running a na...

re: Why was jindal hated so much? - Volumnia
He didn't live up to his potential. We all had such high hopes, and then he turned into an insincere, pandering politician. It's one thing if you just aren't capable, but he was capable of being better and still chose to act like a crazy person because he thought it would make him president. Inserti...

re: Can a "Godless Liberal" help me understand the hypocrisy of their beliefs? - Volumnia
I know it's a troll question, but I can't help but point out that it makes no logical sense. Believing that something happened doesn't do anything other than acknowledging that it happened. I think viruses exist, but I don't think we should stop fighting them. I think gravity is real, but I'm cool w...

re: Should Baby Formula be banned in the United States? - Volumnia
Everyone knows breast milk is better. If you've had a baby, they tell you every 3 seconds. Everyone from the doctor to the packaging that comes with bottles. But, banning formula would be stupid. Mothers still die in childbirth and some can't produce enough milk. Why kill kids because only the secon...

re: What would you do if you found out your mom is cheating... - Volumnia
I'd talk to her. There may be more going on than you know. Your step-dad is not unbiased. I'm older than you (33), but I wouldn't hate my Mom over it. I know now that my parents are just people and they make bad decisions just like everyone else. Being older and a Mom doesn't make her immune to bad ...

re: Hobby Lobby Denied Obamacare Waiver - Volumnia
Does Hobby Lobby pay 100% of their employees' premiums? If so, then they should be able to choose what kind of insurance coverage to provide. But, if employees are paying portions of their own premiums, it shouldn't matter what the owners of the company believe. ...

re: Does anyone know a "normal" Democrat?? - Volumnia
Plenty. Plus, I am one. I never talk about politics in public, because I live in Louisiana. So, I'd guess there are people who don't know I'm a Democrat. But, I am. And I have a good job, a husband with a good job, 2 smart kids, and have never benefitted from any sort of entitlement. ...
