Question for legal eagles.

Mayor Cruz is a native-born US citizen.

So, that means she can run for President, right?

Just wondering.

Anybody else in this group want to throw things at the TV every time Jonathan Capehart opens his mouth?

Adding link by request - I figured people here would remember vividly, as I do. Capehart has a lot of gall to call himself a journalist.



Going to bed before watching the vid, but I assume it's either "He's not" or "Who cares?"

Watched the first 30 seconds.

"Why is everything white?"


This is true, about chances of passing at this time.

But it's not just symbolic, unless by that you mean holding up a banner for people to rally around. Can't get ideas into law if they are not out there.

Um, that's what I said.

It's in the perception and judgement.

I don't know about the other source, so I *reserve* judgement at this time.

So it's *not* the asking for donations that is the deciding factor, as I said.

Thanks for the condescension....

Don't agree.

Think the distinction is on the perceived worth of the news source.

I might agree with you, if

We had a system like most other current democracies.

We don't.

We have a binary, winner-take-all system. Plus the electoral college.

Do I want it changed? Yes, I do. Is it currently what it is? Yes, it is.

Anybody who does not choose the lesser of the evils in our unfortunate system is not, IMHO, facing reality.

And, yes, "lesser" implies only two choices.

Good grief.

I just realized your last post directed to me on this subthread was in response to a post of mine that wasn't even a reply to you. So one can only assume you're monitoring the whole shebang and playing whack-a-mole, still. Sheesh.

Your goal seems to be to get everyone to agree with you, and, furthermore, to say they feel the way you want them to feel. Ain't going to happen. Not my problem if you persist in not listening to others and not thinking anyone else may have a point.

And recs are not proof of right, even on a liberal message board.

Now how about giving up on this? You "won."
