    I wouldn't be surprised if this President went ahead and attacked Iran during his lame duck period. He's taken a lot of money from people with a keen interest in knocking out Iran. I hope that doesn't happen, though. Iran is not what it was at the end of the W. Bush administration; they now have serious military equipment, and a real treaty with China.

    I don't think America is doomed to split apart, nor do I think anything would be solved if it were to split apart. I think that those who think that they would find small government in Texas or the like, if that state were independent, would be quickly disappointed, unless their goals were exceedingly modest. Just look at the federal government in the last...ten decades. It makes virtually no difference which party is in power. The GOP does a reasonably good job, or has historically, of pretending to care about small government, but they plainly don't want to pursue those policies when in power. Do people forget that the GOP controlled the Presidency and both houses of Congress for two years, just two years ago? Boy did government ever get smaller...?

    Your anecdote aside, there was no meaningful reduction in federal regulation. The administration's own figures show savings in the hundreds of millions when the total annual cost of regulation is several trillion. As for endorsing socialism, take a look at current federal spending or the current balance sheet of the central bank. There are no more capital markets in this country. All debt and equity prices are fixed by the federal government. Well more than half of all economic output is consumed or redistributed by the federal government.

    Every state pension fund in the country is invested very heavily in treasuries. I don't have the figures at hand, but I'd say that well more than half of their assets are treasuries. And, the majority of the balance are corporates or munis which, requiring federal subsidies, would go to zero if treasuries did, so they might as well be treasuries. Fine by me, mind you, but that's a very tough sell politically. And, call me crazy, but somehow I suspect that the leaders of this secession movement would blame the foreigners for this catastrophe, as everyone else would blame them, and then gunfire. See? Easier said than done.

    Yes I might be more concerned about the overwhelming majority of members who've been cheering the White House the last four years. No skullduggery involved; they just openly endorse socialism.

    Day to day, I'd go mashed potatoes, but I like stuffing on a holiday. The idea is to stroke out before I get diabetes. As for stuffing, I suggest throwing in some loose pork sausage: magnificent.

    The Democrat Party has been a warring party since Woodrow, certainly. But, if I understand you correctly, you think the GOP is different? If you know what a VHS tape is, you will recall that the GOP started the still somewhat ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Do those not count?

    If that would mean peace, I'd have no objection. In fact, I do have no objection, but only because I think it won't matter one way or another. Separation, last time attempted, proved a bit complicated if you recall... Now? So much more complicated. Here's just one relatively simple thing; how is the national debt to be apportioned? Everyone is going to blame everyone else for accruing it. You think the Russia/whatever hearings were acrimonious!

    It's funny how different people see the exact same objective facts so differently. That somebody as milquetoast as Dave Ramsey is talking about revolution should be worrying. As a general public service announcement, folks, we in the old days made a point of putting a three between the R and the V. That wasn't for nothing.

    Why does the market economy, sans state interference, work the way it does? Is it necessary that businessmen be good and moral for the market economy to function? No, it is only necessary that they be self-interested. That's a neat solution, isn't it? Now think about politics.

    Bitcoin remains, in essence, a no-earnings tech stock. Other than the network effect (i.e. it has value because it has value), which cannot support the price of anything long term (see the story of every speculative mania), the only support for bitcoin is its utility as a payment processing system. I don't think it's a useful payment processing system right now, let alone the dominant system of the future. But, hey, Tesla's trading at a p/e ratio over 1000. What could go wrong?

    I'd say, ignore this undifferentiated cog in the machine of this disgusting government and, if you actually want to fight injustice, focus on the poor fellow who was falsely accused of robbing a 711, who is not in fact owed any quo by any politicians, and sure as hell won't be getting any pardon.

    Hydro is one of the most efficient forms of power generation (also "green" if one cares about such nonsense). If the yellow-bellied weasel-fish must go extinct to further the goals of the rightful masters of this planet, tough. ...we could hold a hearing, but neither the weasel-fish nor the trees would have an opinion.

    Even supposing he was railroaded, there are millions of criminal defendants every year facing all kinds of charges, some improperly. Why do I care about this one, as opposed to, say, some guy who was falsely accused of robbing a 711? Is this news just because he's part of the ruling class? That is why you folks care about him more than Rufus Smith, 711 robber? See above

    I'd be interested to know why anyone in favor of the pardon has any affection for Gen. Flynn (for the record, I don't care one way or the other). ...don't tell me why the Dems are bad, tell me why Flynn is good. What has he done for us lately, or ever?

    Why, it's almost as if the recent talk of peace in the middle east, between countries like Israel and Saudi Arabia, which have been cooperating for decades, and between which there was never the slightest chance of war, is a propaganda effort designed to obscure the formation of what is in fact a new and aggressive anti-Iran alliance.
