November, 2016 is a long way off. Christie's political future does not depend on the past few weeks, but on how he goes forward. As of now Hillary is a two:one favorite over any Republican on the horizon. Her focus needs to be on maintaining a low profile, yet relevant stance for at least after this November elections.
God has chosen to give the lowly insects like the wooly-worm or yellow-jacket more knowledge about global weather forecasts than the narrow-minded and denier human.
Two of my great-great Grandfathers lived within about three miles of each other and fought on opposite sides. One lived in the Lewis Chapel region and joined the Union; the other lived nearer the Sequatchie Valley and was conscripted by the Confederates. One was captured near Rogersville and sent to Andersonville while the other was captured near Tullahoma and sent to Delaware. As survivors they appeared to harbor little ill-feelings toward the opposite sides as they tried to raise a family by farming.
Don't throw-out the entire bag because of a couple rotten apples. Some of these folks wait in line for hours at free clinics just to get some basic health care. A good quarter of our citizens are suffering with little hope for any future. We basically have a third-world country right under our noses.
The only thing worse than a "do nothing" Congress is a "do anything, even if it's wrong" Congress. I don't remember any Congress session in my immediate past that put public above party.
It's about time Boehner charged out of the corner that the minority right-wing nuts kept pushing him into. How these nuts managed to coerce the entire Party has amazed me.
According to the latest statistics on wealth distribution, Reagan's initiation of trickle-down economics has turned into a drip, helped by Bush's fallacy that wealthy tax breaks create more jobs.
In a recent survey, more folks think that politicians should be drug tested than they do for those on welfare.
I find it amusing how those who aren't struggling find ways to justify their thinking about those who are struggling. How many of you could raise a family on less than $300 per week with no benefits? The fast food business and customers have adjusted to the significant increase costs in meat, bread and other materials. They can also adjust to a much needed minimum wage increase.
I'm not a Catholic, but Pope Francis is a breath of fresh air compared to this country's political and religious blindness to the economic disparity between the have and have not's.
