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...

re: I Don't Understand Poor Republicans - M. A. Ryland

re: Is it acceptable to compare Trump to Reagan? - M. A. Ryland
Sorry no. Reagan was actually a real student of the American philosophy of government, and had been for a long time. Go watch Reagan's 1964 "A Time for Choosing" speech on youtube. Then you will know the silliness of the question....
