    There should be exceptions to due process. If a person transgressed against a child or woman his name should be turned over to a group of septagenarians or older (the Eagle Squad) that have learned to tell when a person is guilty and poses a threat. Then the eagle squad could hunt him down and erase the h/feces.

    Trump never had any intention of helping anybody . Bernie was honest and absolutely could pay for everything . He was going to tax derivatives. That alone would put money back into the economy by enticing billions upon billions of dollars to go back into investing in jobs producing investments . That would put money back into the hands of people that would spend it and prosperity would prevail.

    Bernie proposed a "speculation tax." A proposal is different than "he was going to." Presidents are not kings and don't get to waive a magic wand in order to get everything they want.

    Bernie's proposal undoubtedly riled up his supporters, but what he conveniently left out is that fact that his proposal would have to pass a bitterly divided Congress which no matter what happened in the Presidential election would have almost certainly still had a Republican dominated House of Representatives.

    Far too many people in this country desperately need a civics lesson.

    Article I established a Congress; Article II established the Executive. The Congress writes tax bills; the Executive signs said tax bills into law or vetoes them.

    Bernie's promises were as worthless as a $3 bill.

    What you say applies to anybody. Accordingly a president would have to have Republican interests at heart to get anything done.

    I would have to say the civics lesson needs to go to Trump. He is stepping all over the restrictions you say would curtail Bernie.

    Bernie Sanders on MTP, Chuck Todd moderator, I wanted to throw up. He spouted his progressive agenda and suggested what democrats needed to do to win elections. He thinks Americans are coming around to his way of thing, haha. not.
    If that makes you throw up then what is giving you hope .

    Why white teenage boys? Probably the single group that feels the most discriminated left out/behind. Their feelings. The BLM has to make them feel left out. Black people can literally say anything without recourse while white male teenagers saying the same types of ideas would suffer immediate commdenations designed to both punish them and show BLM how quick and far condemnations would go. Just a thought.

    At one point Harry drove Meghan to the next event of the wedding day in a convertible XKE. Noting that hundreds of millions if not a billion were watching the XKE was an American style left-hand steering wheel car. Wonder why ???

    Regarding the too many Doors suggestions. Fires are where they are needed. 2000 rushing to 2 Doors is another potential tragedy.

    I don't think there is any thought of sealing doors. Designating entrance doors is probably the idea.

    No matter how bad it gets there will never be a gun control law that stops another tragic school shooting this year or next year or maybe never. Trump had 62,979,879 votes and none of them will support any law removing guns and some of Hillarys 65,844,954 won't either and then are the people that didn't vote that won't support a gun removing law. Removing guns is the only gun control solution. But schools could be protected within a month by treating them and the adjacent areas as gun free zones zero tolerance immediate action. Stopping shootings is not the objective . Just like David Hogg. More awareness is not needed. Stopping shootings is.

    Chet Ruminski Wrote: What does this have to do with lots of good paying jobs. Nothing to do with free college.

    My post has everything to do with "good paying jobs" and "free college." A solid minority of Democrats have fallen for politicians who promise them everything in the world..."for free!!!" without ever once thinking critically about how all this "free" stuff will be paid for. Their mantra is "low taxes and free everything!" Or I should say "low taxes [for me] and free everything!"

    How do you suppose "free college" for tens of millions of people will be provided? How do you suppose universities will be able to attract competent professors if they are paid sub par salaries? And how do you suppose we fight the inevitable Constitutional challenge concerning "free college!" when it comes to state versus Federal rights in the courts? I would be very hard pressed to see any Appeals Court other than the 9th say that there's a Constitutional right to a post-secondary education, but even if the 9th ruled it Constitutional, I would be SHOCKED if the Supreme Court didn't overrule them.

    Now, I'm all for community colleges offering deeply discounted (paid for by the local taxpayers!) education and trade program certificates, but most community colleges are already doing that. Students can get an associates degree or enroll in a trade program for little to zero money at all already. What we haven't figured out as a society is how to make it affordable for the lower and middle classes to take the next step into an affordable bachelors program at a state or private university.

    This is what I'm trying to get across. Promises of free! this and free! that undoubtedly fire up the base, but they are terrible in the long run because it only pisses off the base when they find out that there's no such thing as a free lunch.

    "Those who don't know their history are doomed to repeat it."

    I'm well aware of the history of the Democratic Party, Chet. I'm aware of the good, bad, and downright ugly history of the Democratic Party.

    We were the party of slavery, Jim Crow, and segregation which also happened to be the party that helped out the "working [WHITE] man" (and only men).

    We're now the party of inclusiveness, gay rights, women's rights, civil rights, and still care about the working people, but unfortunately some of those people decided that following demagogues who promise them everything in the world for free! is easier than ever thinking critically about stubbornly complex problems facing our country.
