Re: Let's live in the present & make the future better

I would say let not repeat the past mistakes in the present and the future better. What I see is we make the same mistake over and over again. Is living in the present mean to kill a black man for defrauding a $10 bill? I am sure that is not what Bill Maher meant. He's referring to the statues and ...

Re: Israel - United Arab Emirates landmark accord

Or burn it to the ground to prevent any future disputes over it. :D But someone would just come along and say, "let's rebuild this." Make it an international zone until the Messiah comes or the 12th Imam comes or Muhammad comes back down from heaven. If the Messiah is Jewish, give it to the Jews. I...

Re: Israel - United Arab Emirates landmark accord

The hold-up with peace between Palestinians and Israelis has always been and always will be Jerusalem. Accept the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state on the Palestinian territories occupied since 4 June 1967 in the West Bank and Gaza Strip with East Jerusalem as its capit...

Now if there could only be a real peace agreement between Israel & Palestine, then there might be real peace in the Middle East.

Re: Understanding the role of a president in US politics

While the process of candidacy and winning an election can be a natural way of testing the abilities of the potential president, i am not sure if being a celebrity or TV star makes a good president. I can't understand why people admire those who appear on TV to the extent that they become the leade...

Re: Understanding the role of a president in US politics

There are checks and balances set up in the Constitution to make it difficult for a president to do too much, but they still wield significant power in some respects. If they are somewhat popular, they can get some of their ideas to Congress. A president can't declare war, but he can persuade Congre...

Re: Biden's VP stakes

So she's a flip-flopping opportunist? From what I've heard, her political career started by dating a powerful married man who got her patronage jobs. Most, nearly all politicians are flip-flopping opportunists. Even Trump has changed from Democrat Party to Reform Party to Republican Party. There's ...

Re: POTUS poll #3

Nonetheless, since I live in a state where the Democrat will win no matter what, I plan on voting for the libertarian candidate. There are a number of states that are either solid-Red or solid-Blue so that's right in that case it wouldn't matter who you voted for since it's already pretty much pre-...

He looks pretty upset. :tongue: That's what I thought; I think she will not go over well with the leftists. Biden is considered a centrist and now he picks another centrist. How is Harris a centrist?

Re: Biden's VP stakes

Haley and Harris both converted / chose Christianity, nothing wrong with that; that is their choice, but Tulsi Gabbard is a devotional Hindu, ideologically closer to Buddhism. They are all good though.

Re: Biden's VP stakes

Trump did not waste time, tweeting a video on Kamala right after the announcement describing her as "radical left". That's to be expected as she is now the competition in the POTUS race. But is she really that "radical left"? She was a District Attorney, then Attorney General of California and then...

Re: Biden's VP stakes

If elected VP, she'll be the second non-white VP in American history. Do you know who the first non-white VP was?

Damn internet, you can google and find out, so I'll give you the answer :tongue:

VP under Hoover, almost 50% American Indian.
