re: Hillary saying tax cuts caused 2008 meltdown - M. A. Ryland
yes, I really wish he had said something along the lines of... " How can my opponent prevent the next economic meltdown, when even 8 years after she still doesn't understand what caused the last one."...

re: Seattle Mariners catcher suspended for the rest of season - M. A. Ryland
[quote]He's right, but I support their decision to suspend him.[/quote] Ordinarily, I would agree with you... Employers have rights too. If you don't like it, go work for someone else. But MLB is a monopoly, which I think should limit their ability to discipline someone for free speech....

re: Post your most hated liberal terms - M. A. Ryland
"diversity" is the one that ticks me off the most. The modern left uses it as a euphemism for lefty racism. "Social Justice" has been a code word for communism for at least 50 years. the phrase "Gun Violence" is an attack on our 2A rights....

[quote]Tell me what government program is going to fix the fact that my children are going to whip their children's asses in life. [/quote] I think your kids should whip their kids asses in life; why would you want the government to "fix" that. All the government can do is try to hold your kid do...

[quote]a dude that's won a bunch of elections in his time, relatively scandal free, with the media backing him I'd assume, WITH ACTUAL IDEAS, is going to struggle against Donald Trump?

re: Obama will bypass Senate, ratify Paris climate accord himself during trip to Chi - M. A. Ryland
[quote]What you want them to do? Obama is not using the Senate. He's once again is sidestepping and what can they do? Have a government shutdown so they can get blamed for it? What can they do? [/quote] If the president makes an announcement that "we have ratified" the pact, then I would e...

re: I would love to know if this has any validity. - M. A. Ryland
Just pointing out that even if true, this poll would be meaningless. The important point: 1000 people in each state and it sounds like they were weighted equally... That rather seriously under-weights people in populous states (like NY and Cal) and over-weights states like Alaska and Wyoming. I wo...

re: Obama seeks to disarm US thru UN - M. A. Ryland
[quote]The lowest yield weapons in our current arsenal have about 100x the destructive power of the ones dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.[/quote] That is pure BS... Any idiot should know better. Much of nuclear weapons research has been geared to making lower yield weapons rather than higher. ...

re: Harry Reid advises Intel Officials to give Trump fake security briefings. - M. A. Ryland
yeah, like anyone believes anything Reid says after his performance for the last presidential election. The man stood up in the Senate to tell blatant lies about Romney, in an effort to sway the 10% of the population dumb enough to listen....

re: Anyone watching Hannity? - M. A. Ryland
[quote]Hannity just has to be the worst person on TV at the moment - maybe I detest him so much because he is on my side of the divide - but damn, he is a douche. [/quote] The problem with Hannity is that he is as dumb as a box of rocks and has a moderate case of assholism....

re: 20k guaranteed or coin flip for 100k? - M. A. Ryland
[quote]There is $20,000 cash in front of you. You can take the cash and go home if you'd like OR you can flip a coin one time for $100,000 cash. [/quote] if I had a little time to set it up, I would probably sell the opportunity for $40k to $45k. I'm sure I could find a gambler who would jump...

re: Using "watch lists" is not a reasonable standard to restrict access to guns - M. A. Ryland
You can't take away a fundamental right without conviction of crime! Should we take away free speech rights because the FBI is suspicious of someone? I actually take it farther... People in jail should not be allowed access to firearms. But if you are not in jail, there should be no bar to ow...

re: The history of the supreme court and 2nd amendment - M. A. Ryland
[quote]Until the 20th century, it was taken for granted that the 2nd Amendment was unincorporated - that is, it didn't restrict anyone other than the feds from abridging the right.[/quote] I think you might be confusing this with the 1st amendment. The text of the first explicitly says "Congr...
