Whiner, how about an assessment of the wildly successful nation building efforts of other countries? Oh, no one else tries or cares or would spend one euro or yen let alone billions of dollars. So lets see if we can get a best seller out of criticizing America, and send snippets to sympathetic websites to hype sales. Thanks so much.

One might wish to consider the voting habits of the countries eating this dementia preventing diet. Frankly, voting for the governments that have been in charge there is better evidence of dementia than any medical test!

Mr. Blackwell is quite wrong about the 2/5 rule during slavery (a practice legal in many countries at the time.) the 2/5 rule referred to population calculation for the number of congressmen from a state. The slave owner did not "vote" the votes of his slaves. Even in "slave stated" slaveowners were a minority of the population.

The Motegi oval is a great track for old style Indy oval racing. Sato proved at Indy he understands what it takes to win in oval racing, real desire. Hope that Indycar racing can return to Motegi.

All the "protections" that Obama wants were already in effect in Connecticut when those children were killed. We in the rest of the country know that these proposals are not about safety for children, only the erosion of freedoms to support the Marxist agenda of Obama and the Democrats.

Americans love criminals. Scorsese trades on the tradition of the Italian criminals that controlled urban America from the beginning of prohibition in 1919 to the 1960's. Nowadays the urban centers are controlled by the parasite class subsidized by government handouts and government jobs, leading to the recent elections where 6% of Americas' land mass elected a president who carried none of the remaining areas of the country. Note that this president rarely visits most of the country which rejected him at the polls.

Marriage as a societal institution was supposed to support the family that emanated from the sexual union of a man and woman, sanctioned and often arranged by their families and sanctified by their religious institution.
Anal "marriage" to get government benefits for sex partners is certainly not the same thing. (Or oral marriage for lesbians) But the modern requirement that any itch we have must be scratched, and paid for by others has got us here.

Here in America we are only spending 3 dollars for every 2 taken in taxes! Will take a little longer but the result will be the same. Perhaps not today, but soon own something that cannot lose value, if you can find such an asset and can hide it from the government!

Not judging the whole industry, just all the recent mass shooters, all violent gamers. The smoking in movies has been removed as too influential on youth, but violent games with "points" to win by killing are reving up killer from Colorado to Connecticut.

The French are working on a "weath" tax to do the same thing. What crime did the depositors over 100,000 Euro comitt to be taxed at a higher level. The American constitution has a prohibition on such taking, of course the current administration considers the constitution as a racist document from the past, to be ignored when necessary. The "fairness" crowd around the world need all the money possible to pay the army of government workers needed to regulate every aspect of life, and by the way provide the votes to perpetuate the fair govenment.

In the US lawyers solicit such lawsuits and stand to keep most (at least 50%) of any recovery or settlement they can get. They often pay the "plaintiffs" money in "support" in advance of any recovery. And of course the judges that permit this scam are lawyers too, planning to retire as senior partners in the same law firms that appear before them now. In many states judges are elected and lawyers are the main source of campaign funds. This legal con game has nearly destroyed manufacturing in America, lots of rich lawyers though.
