re: Mark Levin on Tariffs - maine82
Tariffs are an attempt to tax your way to prosperity. If Trump imposes a tariff on a company overseas, that company isn't going to eat the cost, they're going to pass that tariff back onto the consumers. So before, you could buy a $30 t-shirt made in America or a $15 t-shirt made in China, and now...

re: A government "Go Fund Me" account for the Wall - maine82
I think at the very beginning of the Trump Administration, it would have been a good idea to sell commemorative bricks for the wall, because that's when his supporters were most in a lather. But that opportunity has probably now past....

re: Who should be allowed to vote in this country? - maine82
I would be OK with expecting people to pass a basic citizenship test and another basic test on the issues of the election. But the reality is given the history of denial of voter rights in America, those things would never pass....

re: Don Lemon on Job Numbers for Blacks: ‘What’s Full Employment Without Full Respect?’ - maine82
Reading the Roland Lazenby biography of Michael Jordan, I found this interesting: [quote]The deep sadness the whole family felt at Dawson's passing perhaps reinforced Michael's newly discovered racial anger. He didn't know every detail of his [great-grandfather's] life, but he had only to look a...

re: GOP to pick up 9 senate seats in November - maine82
I think that's optimistic, given that Republicans have been under-performing in every special election this year, apart from GA-06 where the Democrat was awful. I think the GOP will lose the House, albeit not by colossal margins. But I think the Dems will pick up 35-45 seats. In the Senate, t...

re: Louisiana is trying to get rid of the death penalty - maine82
It won't happen. However, the death penalty is practically all but dead in Louisiana because parish governments don't want to pay the fees to move convicts sentenced in their parishes through the process. It's been over 8 year since we last imposed it....

re: New Quinnipiac poll: 66% support tougher gun laws, highest ever recorded - maine82
[quote]I wonder if the graph below concerns the NRA. Or are they laughing it off?[/quote] It's concerning enough that gun rights supporters should devise solutions to address mass shootings that don't involve restricting law-abiding citizens' rights. And they should take that seriously. But t...

re: Predict the Electoral results for Trumps 2020 election win - maine82
As it stands now? Trump 270-268. That can change if he moves forward on immigration and passes a DREAM Act. But I think he loses Arizona and Florida while gaining New Hampshire. Also, according to the Gallup state approval ratings, he's upside down in Texas 39-54. Historically bad for a Repub...
