L'Shanah Tovah to our jewish


you can't not like

joe biden. just watching him on the late show.

chris matthews "you don't need a gun in DC".

i disagree. don't know what the gun laws are there. i'm originally from new york city where you could not own a gun. however the bad guys had them. now i live in phoenix and yes i own a gun. it's for personal protection. if someone gets passed my alarm system i'm going to use it.

that being said i'm for strict gun control laws.

i'll probably get flamed.

Appearing on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday, Powell responded to revelations that he used a personal email account, rather than a government one, when he was in charge of the State Department.

it seems not a lot of people know who bernie is

how can we change this?

i'm retired and can spend a lot of time watching MSNBC, etc. i've been able to learn more about our senators and congressman. i've been a fan of bernie for as long as i can remember.


What makes Sanders’ showing particularly impressive is that the same poll shows that more than half of Americans either don’t know who he is or don’t know enough about him to have formed an opinion.

When asked their opinion of Sanders, 23 percent of respondents reported a favorable opinion of him and 22 percent reported an unfavorable opinion.

However, 38 percent said they had “never heard” of him and another 13 percent didn’t know enough about him to form an opinion.
