Re: Congratulations Wisconsin!

Kerry: I don't know what rules apply to local elections in your region, but the Wisconsin Primary is and has been for some time an open primary. Indeed, some years ago there was a strong objection by the Democratic Party to the open primary and some suggestions that Democrats would forego the Wiscon...

Congratulations Wisconsin!

I want to congratulate those people of Wisconsin who took the trouble to vote in yesterday's election. Television crews covering the primary showed the snow and ice in the background of many campaign and voting sites. But the turnout in Wisconsin -- particularly compared to some other states that ha...

Re: Bush, Pope Among Nobel Nominees

Flosum, I suspect you are up to your old tricks of attempting to bait folks into another debate so that you can drag out your tired old "You-guys-just-hate-Bush" line. Anyone can be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. The list of those nominated in recent years include some of the worst tyr...

Re: Kerry and Jane Fonda connection

You are absolutely right, Flosum. Alan Greenspan did not directly say that we ought to keep the tax cuts to the rich. He said that we ought to make permanent Dubya's tax cuts. Of course, that is tantamount to the same end since those tax cuts favor the upper-income brackets much more so than the low...

Re: Kerry and Jane Fonda connection

First, it will not stop illegal immigration since it requires all immigrants to certify that they have jobs before immigrating and will require them to return to thei...
