re: Would you be alive today without modern medicine? - dinosaur
Well, I am diabetic, so near sighted that I would probably have qualified as blind a long time ago, had a heart cath and a ruptured appendix. So I guess I would have found out what was on the other side by now....

re: At Don Jr. meeting was a FUSION GPS employee...Lynch Tapped Phones!!! - dinosaur
Not trying to be difficult but I don't understand. First, I thought this was a face to face meeting, so who cares if a phone was tapped? Second, I thought FISA warrants were aimed at foreign nationals thought to have ties to terrorism. Why let this woman into the country if her phone was tapped a...

re: The cult of ignorance in the United States: Anti-intellectualism - dinosaur
I agree that the idea of removing competition from some things tends to cause an expectation of reward for little effort. But I think that the problem discussed in the article is more of a result of a toxic soup of children who are not just not interested in learning, but deride those who are, of a...

re: Gerrymandering, For or Against? - dinosaur
This is one of the main reasons the nation is so polarized. The districts are designed to elect a person from party "X" and the fact that you don't have to get approval from the other side of the political fence to get elected makes representatives less and less likely to try to find a compromise....

re: Pre-Internet: Did your dad subscribe to Tiger Rag? - dinosaur
I subscribed for years. Had the same problems with late delivery so dropped it. Used to leave it in the lobby and it wouldn't stay out there a day before someone would take it. ...

re: Did the Obama Administration Try Stacking the Deck Against Trump at the Justice - dinosaur
Old guys like me recall that the Watergate mess started out something like this. But I think this one will be worse. What sort of warrant was obtained? If a normal warrant, what was the probable cause? If a FISA warrant, why base in on banking rules? That was intended for anti-terrorism, I thoug...

re: Did a Big Law Attorney Act Unethically to Sabotage Trump's Travel 'Ban'? - dinosaur
While this thread has diverted into more of an argument of whether Trump is worse than Obama, I understand the ramifications of the conflict rules and am shocked that that firm filed that brief. In normal circumstances and normal cases it would be close to professional suicide, nearly insuring some ...

re: Thinking of getting a Hyundai Genesis - dinosaur
My wife had one. Great car for about 35000 miles, then began to have issues. Real problem I had was that it would stall out on the highway and I would bring it back to All Star under the warranty. While the dealership tried, and I honestly think they made a good effort, Hyundai would refuse to ...

re: Parade Irony - dinosaur
You realize, of course, that Obama was the first black president and pretty much every black person I know wanted to be at that historical event. But all that I get from the riots and demonstrations is that the hate is strong in the democrat base. ...

re: Tillerson Russian Connection - dinosaur
I thought he was to divest himself of Exxon stock. Also, that article implied that he would get some financial gain but didn't say anything about how he personally was going to gain anything from his dealings as secretary of state. Looked to me like someone in media doesn't like the fact that ...

re: Obama awards Distinguished Public Service Medal, to himself. - dinosaur
The first response of the left seems to always be that your guy did this, too. Well wrong is wrong and dumb is dumb, regardless of who did it before. As if the President's picked man is going to tell him no on something like this. And if someone else did it before, it just shows more how we nee...
