The Sons of Liberty in 1777 pulled down a statue of King George V in NY and that is the reason why nobody knows today who won the American War of Independence or who George V was. Pity. And if it were no for the pretty statues on Richmond Avenues nobody would know about the Civil War. Suc…

Eaton, "The left prides itself on it's boorishness these days." Is that why you and yours are screaming "Send her back," and "Lock her up?" Is that why you and yours swear allegiance to a proven liar, a sexual predator, and thief? I am sure you heard the story of a liar, a thief, and a se…

Jeff, we haven't done all that much to help others, based on GNP. We give the most in foreign aid based on dollars, but as a share of GNP (now GNI) the Swedes are at the top with 1.41%. We are not even in the top twenty with .15%.

Fred Mahmout, Trump right now is competing with Andrew Johnson and James Buchanan for the bottom spot as America's worst president, after only 2 1/2 years. Obama has been voted by 31% Americans as the best president in anybody's memory, and 9th best overall.


Fred Mahmout, I don't know who owns Rasmussen, but this is what Nate Silver had to say about them: After the 2018 midterm elections, Silver concluded that Rasmussen's polls were the least accurate of the major pollsters in 2018, having an average error of 5.8 points and a pro-Republican b…
