schestowitz>> The images may be spurious, but it's a matter of taste.Jan 06 01:47
schestowitz> Hmm.  For me, they add visual clutter and do not add to the function ofJan 06 01:47

schestowitz"Yet, Leftists like Yang love centralized control,... like Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini and Mao. Those 4 killed something like 100 million -- nearly 1/3 of the United States for their lust for power.

schestowitz"Nope! Not in name only or any other way, shape or form. Democracy is a much HATED form of government which means the majority abusing the minority -- even the minority of one. The founding fathers built into the democratic Republic many checks and balances to PREVENT the majority from such abuses. One of those genius mechanisms is the Electoral College. A pure work of art -- to prevent L.A., Chicago and N.Y. from running the entire country."Jan 06 06:22

schestowitz"Good! Congress should've done that when Obama went crazy with war lust. And Congress should've done far more investigation under Bush before starting 2 wars. Afghanistan begged to stop the war, offering to hand over Bin Laden to a third party if Bush could supply proof of Bin Laden's involvement. I don't know which is more frightening -- that Bush didn't have evidence, or preferred war to peace.'Jan 06 06:22

schestowitzWithout evidence? While that's possible, the language is illogical. It rests on an Argument from Ignorance logical fallacy. More accurate would be to say, "No evidence we know about..." and therein lies the rub. What if Trump has evidence and he's not sharing?Jan 06 06:28
