Oh my god ! Where did you get Hillary''s photo. She has not looked like this for 40 years ? I justRead More love the media showing a photo like this when she looks like an old goat ! Remember she already lost once and she is the most disgusting person in the world. When are we going to get some new people in politics. Why do we keep recycling the same losers over and over again.

Hillary is a very smart able woman. She served well as Senator from NY and as SECSTATE. I wouldRead More vote for her again. The drooling halfwits from the tea party can't stop her. The republicans will never win with tea party assholes fragmenting the vote. Very reasonable republican candidates are now forced into making idiotic statements to show that they agree in some way with the droolers. Hil is a winner already.

That Newsmax article constantly says this is a way to circumvent the Constitution. But since theRead More Constitution grants states the right to award their EC votes any way they want, this is perfectly legal. A state could decide to award its EC votes based on a contest. Have the Democratic nominee and the Republican nominee guess how many jelly beans are in a jar. Closest one gets the EC votes for their party.

Let's stop with the euphemisms. ILLEGAL, not "undocumented" is what should be used allRead More the time. Every time this country give out "amnesty" to millions of ILLEGALS, more come illegally and those who wait on line to request entry legally get screwed. I have family living in other countries who would admit them legally since the quota for Europeans had been met here. So, pardon me if I have no sympathy. How about a Dream Act to cut tuition rates for those legally living here and who are burdened with loans, but persevere to get a degree. It took me ten years to pay off my students loans, but I did it to get a BA, MA and a MS!

Patrick, that's really dumb. Dan, the CBS article cited does not mention cameras spying onRead More passengers, despite the way this Patch article is written.

I wonder if they can't pay because we are still in an economic depression? In a society that reliesRead More on cars, not sidewalks, taking away their ability to commute to a job is tantamount to throwing them into pauper's prison. why not just throw them in jail and be done? It's the same thing.
