Keep that gene pool tight! Remember incest must have started with Eve and her sons because she had no daughters. Even if she did brother/sister sex is not so healthy for the gene pool.

Bobby9 comments on Apr 28, 2019:
Democrat Party rules are NOT democratic. While Super Delegates no longer vote in the first round, they do in all subsequent rounds. With as many hopefuls as are running there is an excellent chance no one will win in the first round, so we are back to the Party power brokers selecting a candidate.

Bobby9 comments on Apr 28, 2019:
@Admin Thank you for your concern. I have also noticed that liberal thought outnumbers conservative thought. While not far right, my thought tends to be conservative. I am not upset by any single or gang liberal replies. In fact many liberals seem to look for reasons to feel offended and I find that amusing. Bottom line is I don't think you need to do anything. In fact no censorship would be an improvement.

Bobby9 comments on Apr 27, 2019:
The concept of original sin, and then that sin passed on is indeed absurd. Using that criteria, we should punish everyone who's ancestors ever committed a crime. The only explanation I can offer is religious people purposely let their logic lapse to accept many biblical teachings.

New Study Shows Medicare for All Would Save US $5.1 Trillion Over Ten Years
Bobby9 comments on Apr 26, 2019:
I've always thought that if one takes the sum of all health care premiums paid by individuals, plus those premiums paid by employers for their employee health care, that sum would be less than any tax increase necessary to fund a single payor system.

Robert Mueller Report: Outline For Prosecution | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC - YouTube
Bobby9 comments on Apr 24, 2019:
Maddow is a perfect illustration that degrees do not necessarily equal intelligence. Trump and his team stink, however Maddow is merely a shill for the left and obviously more interested in TV ratings (which she does not get) than news reporting. She her show is virtually all opinion, and no news.

Bobby9 comments on Apr 24, 2019:
The fact that the same religious people say something cannot come from nothing and then assert god came from nothing (actually they say he always was) don't realize they contradict themselves, speaks to their election of suspended logic. By the way, there are many well known scientists who agree with your "expansion, collapse" theory. It could be correct.

Bobby9 comments on Apr 21, 2019:
Perhaps. However since Trump was cleared of collusion, wouldn't it be hard to convict a person of obstructing prosecution of a crime that didn't happen? I know it is legally possible to do so, that is not my question. My question is wouldn't it be hard to convict.
