I love reading History. I find it more fascinating than most fiction. Although a registered Independent voter, my political and social views lean to a conservative outlook. Both major political parties are, in my opinion, totally bankrupt in ideals and intent. Both pull too far in their respective direction, and all have sold themselves to the highest bidders. A New England Yankee, I have great admiration for the founders of our nation. The early ones, Washington, Adams Jefferson and others put their lives on the line. Add Madison, Franklin and more. We are most fortunate that our Revolution/Rebellion was organized and led by educated, enlightened men (not to forget Abigail and some other uncelebrated women) who thought far into the future, and it took other men like Jackson, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and FDR to maintain the hopes & dreams of millions. France's Revolution started well, but was taken over by lesser men, and fell into the Reign of Terror, and the Guillotine. Russia suffered Lenin & Trotsky. We were luckier! I cannot get through the day without reading the Comics. Regular comics first, then the Political 'toons. Unemployed for 35 months, I finally landed a good position with a good company! However, now I have less time to comment, (a relief to some) and less time to read other comments. Just typing out my gripes & diatribes gives me a feeling of being a little less helpless, and I feel better having said it. Sometimes I goof. I do like reading other comments: occasionally I learn something.

    No, Scott; the shootings, like the beatings, will never stop. They are too numerous now, and are running the country.

    The problem is not as much the second amendment any more, as is the attitudes of so many Americans about THEIR RIGHTS. And, as Bill Maher exhibited on his HBO show 10 days ago, about the increasing spate of movie releases, crowded with firearms use (automatic, military grade etc), loud long exchanges of gunfire, and with themes/titles with VENGEANCE….. Some of the recent mass shootings have been committed by young men who felt cheated, and wanted to act out against their percieved oppressors. Gun owners and gun-regulation supporters better start talking to eachother, and these ultra-violent movies should be boycotted. How many young, impressionable boys are growing up watching this violence on cable TV, movie theaters and their mobile devices?

    Zom, Only the Bill of Rights restricts the government. The rest of the Constitution spells out what the govt can or should do.

    To wellis1947 and all of you, ESPECIALLY Trump supporters; . . Below are two Utube links to the 1960’s movie “Judgement at Nuremburg”, one of which I have not posted before. I hope you Trump supporters will view them, especially the first one. I would like to know your . . . the first, actor Burt Lancaster, portraying a noted, once respected jurist, explaining to the Tribunal the reasons why he took part in the new climate in Germany. I can substitute some of his words: “Only when you understand… can you imagine what Trump meant to us. ‘Lift up your heads! Be proud to be White! There are Devils among us! (Libs, Blacks, Hispanics). Once we do away with these Devils, your troubles will be gone!”In the second, actor Spencer Tracy*, as the leading judge of the Tribunal, explains the verdict.In the final scene of this fine, dramatic movie, Judge Haywood* visits the cell of defendant Ernst Janning. Janning (B.Lancaster) tells him that he never thought that it would come to that (mass murders, gassing, cremation), that Judge Haywood MUST believe that, please. Judge Haywood replies “It came to that the first time you sentenced a man you knew to be innocent.”

    Having Congress and, possibly, the White House was not enough. Now, the Wealthy Elite own the SCOTUS, and many more laws and regulations will be scuttled, and a few cabinets will probably be defunded.

    “Not just China, but India as well. All that progress from the fruit of unregulated capitalism.” …….and a lot of that was because of the millions of manufacturing jobs, once held by American machinists and assemblers, (not to mention shipping & recievers and support administrative staff), as a LOT of American dollars went to China, Asia and Eastern Europe.
