    Yes, death is a creepy thing. I remember reading a report some years ago that, surprisingly, disturbed me. It was that as of some date perhaps 30 years ago, there were more dead people in the ground...
  3. Poll: I understand what you are saying vis-à-vis...

    I understand what you are saying vis-à-vis Northerner, but I prefer to accept the thing as stated and move on. Your duty as a Moderator probably won't allow you to do that.
  4. Poll: Thanks, I try. It's not much fun (arguing,...

    Thanks, I try. It's not much fun (arguing, disputing, having a conversation) with someone who agrees with everything you write.
  5. Poll: I suppose if I like Sanders at all it's because...

    I suppose if I like Sanders at all it's because he has been transparent, expressing unfiltered support for a lot of awful things I don't want to have happen to this country. But, none the less, he is...

    Amoral? Well, I don't know about that, but we tried a morally-preening President with Carter and what we got was chaos and incompetence. As I remember the Europeans disliked him as much as any other...

    Mud is in the eye of the beholder; they throw mud at my candidate, we tell the truth about theirs.

    And yes, Bernie is doing well because he's authentic, but also because he stands for something....

    I think you make an excellent point with this European example. This was the way America saw itself in 1783; a confederation of free states in which the smallest population states saw themselves as...

    The Founders studied and understood everything they could; they had a big task and took it seriously. The point was, they weren't stupid. They created the current US system out of an abundance of...

    Yes, yes, yes.

    The Founders studied the history of democracy (I suspect especially that of Athens) and knew that its great weakness was the tendency to mob rule. The myriad of checks and balances...

    I think it's enough to point out that slavery has been with us for thousands of years (probably started in the Neolithic), has been practiced by most of the cultures of this world and accepted as...

    The critique has come from many sides, including supporters of the President. At the grass roots level the Saudis are not generally popular. Why would they be?

    As to the Uighurs, many nations...

    A nation's foreign policy is, frankly, not normally a question of ethics, it's a tool for the advancement of a nation's self interest. During the American Revolution we received, and appreciated,...

    Thanks. That was just the kind of explanation I was looking for (it's the reason I come to this site).

    So, do you consider 7 to be a close match, or is that rather middling?

    I always thought of myself as English/Dutch/German (predominantly northern Germany), the standard early American mix. My...

    I had my LivingDNA results updated recently and I find them more accurate now. Less English and more German than before, as it should be based on the last 10 generations. They also added some...

    Living DNA contacted me and said they had updated my results. They are now better than before, so we got that going for us. Then I was about 70/30 English/German. It now shows more accurately:
