Re: 55%?

The only way I could see that being accurate is maybe in a rural town in a red state where there simply aren't enough Dems for anyone to shun as friends. Here in the burbs of a blue state, there are plenty of both Rs and Ds and I stick by my original statement. Within a few seconds of an internet s...

Re: 55%?

I am listening to Jackie Gingrich Cushman speaking to Republicans. She just stated that 55% do not have friends of the other party. I have friends who voted for Hillary and those who voted for Trump. I live in an area, though, where many have no friends who voted for Trump. Are you part of the 55%?...

Re: Epstein

I'm going to say his name is Vincenzo Sr and he came from Abruzzi. How'd I do? Close. He was Anthony and, of course, my middle name is Anthony. I used to say that if you were Italian it was either your first or middle name. And, I don't even know where Abruzzi is. I always tell people that I'm gene...

Re: Countering medical cost myths

58 and take 3. Mediocre genes. Or zealous MDs on the preventive med bandwagon. Most people aren't like this crowd though. Your typical 65 year old is on: aspirin +/- Plavix, a statin, 2-3 blood pressure meds, 2-3 diabetes meds, 2-3 pain medications, an antidepressant or two, a proton-pump inhibitor...

Re: The Republican Brain?

Understood. 1. There are so many science based things that are likely proven wrong already or will be proven wrong over time. But,,,the thing that doesn’t seem to be in dispute (by most?) is that climate is changing. 2. The point of disagreement is how much are humans at fault, right? If climate wa...

Re: Figuring Out Religion

"Repentance, then, is nothing other than the appropriate reception of God's Word of Law and Gospel. The Law comes and preaches to us, showing us our sin, our failure, our desparate wicdkedness, our lack of love, and whatever else is filthy and rebellious in us, and we are contrite. The Gospel comes ...

Thanks to all who maintain an atmosphere of civility and respect for those who have different worldviews. It promotes an environment that is conducive to le...

Re: My Democtratic candidate grades!

Articulate, likeable fellows are people you want as neighbors, or the head of the PTA. I don't see them succeeding as the head of a country. I take it you give Obama a D or an F? I know your question was not directed at me. But I give Obama an A but I never totally got the articulate part. Maybe in...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

"Sitka", interesting novel by Louis L'Amour about historical Alaska. I think I read all of his books a few decades ago.
