"I think that this is an issue that necessarily needs to be negotiated democratically. It's easy for me to support immigration of farm laborers, janitors, etc., because they're not competing for my job... Their presence is an economic…"
"I don't own one, but I've shot a friend's a number of times. The first time, I went into it thinking that I was shooting it as more of a historical experience than a good shooting one, and boy was I wrong. It was a delight…"
"The US is huge and there is a lot of good hunting in a lot of US states. If you haven't planned your trip yet, which part of the country are you planning to visit? From there, it would be easier to help you find good hunting…"
"You've apologized. I would make some other apologetic gesture (getting the drink tab, getting him a decent cigar if that's his thing, or something along those lines). But, at the point where you've apologized and done…"

In March, 2016, then Mr. Trump released a seven point healthcare plan outline that he wanted Congress to adopt. As far as I can tell, the only parts of his proposals that showed up in either the House or…"
"Cool your jets. This hill ain't worth dying on. Let it slide, but make damn sure your emails actually get sent. (I had a similar 'went to draft' email situation when I went to Windows 10. A number, but not all,…"
"Just don't let the hobby take over and run your life to the exclusion of all else. You do want to have provenance on stuff. There's lots of reproduction stuff around, especially since "military recreating" became a…"
