I love reading History. I find it more fascinating than most fiction. Although a registered Independent voter, my political and social views lean to a conservative outlook. Both major political parties are, in my opinion, totally bankrupt in ideals and intent. Both pull too far in their respective direction, and all have sold themselves to the highest bidders. A New England Yankee, I have great admiration for the founders of our nation. The early ones, Washington, Adams Jefferson and others put their lives on the line. Add Madison, Franklin and more. We are most fortunate that our Revolution/Rebellion was organized and led by educated, enlightened men (not to forget Abigail and some other uncelebrated women) who thought far into the future, and it took other men like Jackson, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and FDR to maintain the hopes & dreams of millions. France's Revolution started well, but was taken over by lesser men, and fell into the Reign of Terror, and the Guillotine. Russia suffered Lenin & Trotsky. We were luckier! I cannot get through the day without reading the Comics. Regular comics first, then the Political 'toons. Unemployed for 35 months, I finally landed a good position with a good company! However, now I have less time to comment, (a relief to some) and less time to read other comments. Just typing out my gripes & diatribes gives me a feeling of being a little less helpless, and I feel better having said it. Sometimes I goof. I do like reading other comments: occasionally I learn something.

    When I started downhill skiing at 24, I thought “What on earth did I do all winter before I caught this bug?” At 71, winter is the blahs again.

    Always? Are you simply daft or do you really believe that?

    Hey Brain, why not stay, giving yourself a retention bonus? (You can leave just a few months after you get that!)

    They are working soley on the orders of their “campaign” contributors; the Wealthy Elite and foreign governments. Don’t forget this!

    Ok, in addition to many of the posts about gun mfgs, NRA and and the ease by which firearms can be had, there are also serious social problems in our country that are being fueled and exasperated by the rise of social media platforms. Add in lack of good education, less reading, (newspapers on the way out) less THINKING, and a broken system of federal government awash in money. No quick fixes here, and beware of any pol who says he/she can!

    “When pressed on this point (the establishment of the National Bank) he stated that Liberty and sound morals were served by a sound currency and a nation free of debt. Disordered, depreciated currency, an empty treasury, and general economic depression were the breeding grounds of those dread opposites tyranny and anarchy.”-John C. Calhoun; The Price of Union, book by John Niven.

    I have been a registered Independent since the 1970’s. I have many gripes about what the Dems (Libs?) have done, but I do not want to see this country sold out to the Wealthy Elite, gift-wrapped, more than it already has. These are your present-day repubs, who have displayed an arrogance unsurpassed in American political history, an unwillingness to discuss and compromise, since Newt instructed his House members back in the ’90’s. I DO read, Sammy; Both sides. That is why I am scared about republicanism today.

    This is a trial run. It will be introduced again in 2024 if the repubs gain the WH and the Senate.
