About Me

I am not an English Major. I do and will from time to time make grammatical and spelling errors. It would be appreciated if those errors are pointed out using DU mail, but if you must show your superior ability to use the English language by posting on the forum, do not be offended if I choose to point out your need to show that superiority on the public forum also.

What is the best way to report a potential troll

This morning I noticed someone who on their 1st post made a questionable post. I didn't want to alert. Maybe it was just someone who feels calling out Obama's failings are acceptable Democratic actions.

Can they be brought to the Administrators attention to watch without calling a jury.

Who is the most trust worthy news source?

I would do this as a poll but there are so many today I don't want to miss any.

I am asking about networks TV/Radio but would welcome specific programs also.

I have only seen the sound bits from Romney's Obama Bash yesterday.

I really don't have the stomach to watch the whole thing, but something I have notices.

There is a bald man in work clothes sitting behind Romney. He of course is there for the photo op. But, he looks less than excited to be there, the only applause seems to be polite applause at best, usually he is just looking bored.

Did I just see his few bored moments?

Has anyone else noticed this man?

You know I hated it when Bush bypassed Congress

But turn about is fair play.

If congress continues to act like 5 year olds, ok actually 3 year olds, I say go for it.

Senator Rubio: Short term solution for long term problem

Well Senator, who has stopped the log term solution? Your republicans. Also, your party has made it clear they had no intention of fixing the problem.

On another note, if Romney chose Rubio as a running mate would that get him any latino votes he wouldn't already have?

Did I understand this correctly?

On Martin Bashir if I understood correctly. The announcement which President Obama made today was going to be Romney's great compromise to solve the immigration problem? If so will he take credit or denounce it?
I am sure this will be considered political, but fine it was the right thing to do (something Republicans don't understand), but I am sure it will help the President with the latino vote. But, won't it also force the Republicans to run even more to the right alienating them from latinos even more?

Just wondering

Has Romney ever been interview by any reporter who either doesn't work for FOX or appears to be on his staff?

Is he vetting the reporters who has access to him? Does he control those who are at his appearances where open questions are allowed? Will he ever be asked a real question? Will anyone ever hold him to the fire?

Obama vs. Romney

The news networks are all talking about the two speeches today. I often hear Republicans say Obama or the Democrats don't have a plan. From my point of view there is a plan, the Republican simply won't vote for it.
But, I would like to know Romney's plan. I know cut taxes, I know cut services but has he given any specifics? I know he wants deregulation but do we know which ones he wants to end? I assume he wants to end banking regulations but what about labor, environmental, OSHA, basically what does he want to deregulate.

We have the cliff notes but what about details. Is America simply suppose to "trust" him?

Seriously, has he released any details?

When SCOTUS announces a decision on ACA

Will they make an announcement telling when it will happen, just walk out and tell it, release a written statement or how.

I should know, but sadly I don't. Can someone help me out?

Do people vote for the right person?

Do people really know the issues and where the candidates stand?

Yesterday there was a post with a link for "I Stand With". You answer questions and it tells which candidate your stand with based on your answers.

I did ok. Mine was 92% Obama and 16% Romney.

I had my step father take the test. He is a strong Democrat. But, he mostly stands with Paul, next Obama but Romney wasn't that far below Obama.

No of course I am not going to argue with my step father that he is voting for the wrong person, but it shows no matter how often he may say he follows the issues the truth is he votes for the party.

I wonder how many Republicans do the same?

I have included the link to yesterday OP which has the link for the website. I encourage everyone to take the test, even if you don't want to post your results.
