    Bill Clinton's "Work" habits

    "they were elected for the same reasons then as now. To stop liberal idiots"

    So, again, Springer confirms that the defense, the health and welfare of our nation is just not in today's' conservatives view. You make it clear that that's not what you or today's conservatives care about.

    So, if today's conservatives care nothing about our nation, as you have demonstrated, why should we trust any of them to run our country??

    Bill Clinton's "Work" habits

    Well, then it appears that the Republicans were elected to do completely different things in Clinton's era, and now.

    In the 1990's Gingrich, and Clinton talked and put the country first. As a result, they did the business of the nation, and worked together to defend and improve our country. Laws enacted, by Congress, then.

    103rd 1993-94 473
    104th 1995-96 337
    105th 1997-98 404
    106th 1999-00 604

    But recent Congresses seem to be completely opposed to doing the county's business. They won't even talk about what needs to be done, but simply ignore everything that is happening around them. There's a good reason that they've been called "do-noting" Congresses.

    112th 2011-12 284
    113th 2013-14 296
    114th 2015-16 177 (Still in session, so there may be a few more)

    What was Congress elected to do in the 1990's that today's Congress was clearly not elected to do?

    Geez, given all that Clinton accomplished in 8 years, it makes you wonder what his successor's work habits were??

    Clinton accomplishments include, highest home ownership rate in US history, lowest unemployment in 30 years, improved and increased education at all levels., Family and Medical leave act, smallest welfare roles in 32 years, lowest poverty rate in 20 years, deactivated 1,700 old Soviet nukes, paid off $360 billion in national debt, created 250,000 new jobs every month, on average, Signed the Brady Bill, GATT tax cut, with NATO and UN, brokered a Bosnian peace agreement, removed vulnerable enriched uranium from crumbling Soviet nations, contributed to Northern Ireland ceasefire, Lobbying Disclosure Act, and dozens more that I don't have time to type in.

    She's only losing with millennials because most of them have been supporting Bernie. That will change after the convention. There are still 4 or 5 month for folks to change their minds. We'll see what happens in November.

  • vt_investor vt_investor Jun 21, 2016 1:05 PM Flag

    Hillary seems to be losing among white men. That's 31% of US citizens. Among everyone else, she appears to be leading right now. But there are 4 or 5 months before anyone votes. We'll see what happens then.

    Orlando Shooter

    How can you get so many things wrong, all at one time??

    I don't want unrestricted immigration, or any unvetted immigration. Guns are not the problem, but putting them in the hands of terrorists, criminals, the mentally ill, and children is very wrong. Neither guns, nor car need be banned.

    How do you pan to keep guns out of the hands of terrorists, criminals, the mentally ill, and children? Until that happens, 10's of thousands of Americans will continue to be shot, and killed every year.

    And he appears to have had some mental illness as well.

    So, then, why have the NRA, and so many of today's conservatives, including a majority of senators, protected his right to buy those guns so strongly? They certainly look like they are the strongest supporters of the "home grown liberal radical extremist, Islamic terrorists" in the nation. Either we support their right to buy big guns, and explosives, or not. Today's conservatives have clearly shown which side of that coin they stand on, and its not the side that might stop these shootings.

    The national voter registration act of 1993 (motor voter act) doesn't change the requirement for voter registration. It simple requires that states provide the means to register to vote when people get or renew a driver's license, or at disability offices and public assistance offices. The requirements are the same: age, citizenship, and domicile.

    Romney's Payback: Utah To Go For Clinton

    I've spend about a month of this year in Utah. (and more than that last year). I've got a number of Utah friends and relatives, but what I reported here was based on existing polls, and maybe some Utah newspaper reports, not what they've told me, although they do support the poll results.

    The issue is not that Utah's conservative Mormons will vote for Clinton. They won't. but the issue is that they will also not vote for Trump. Utah pools now show about 1/3 voting for Clinton, 1/3 voting for Trump, and 1/3 voting for someone else, or not voting at all. A good ground game in Utah could turn polls like that into a Hillary victory. But 5 months is a long time. Lots of opinions could still change.

    Hillary Clinton Ahead, Nationwide

    Here's their recent results:

    Rasmussen (6/19) - Clinton 44%, Trump 39% - likely voters.
    Zogby (6/2) - Clinton 40%, Trump 34% - likely voters.

    API - Could not find any of their results, but I did see that they may be associated with Huffington Post.

    Some polls a month ago did show that Trump has some lead over Clinton, but that doesn't seem to be the case now. And there is still at least 4 months to go before many even begin to think about the election.

    Perhaps. What are those polls?

    In 2012 polls at this point in the year said that Obama has, at best a fraction of a point lead, and in reality it was a tie.

    On election day, 7 polls said that it was still a tie, or Romney would win. 4 others said that Obama had a slim lead.

    When the votes were counted at the end of the day, Obama had won by 4%.

    It looks like most pollsters are having the same problem this year. That is they still don't know how to count votes among minority groups - minorities who are becoming or already are the majority in many states.

    Yep. Exactly what the DT knows how to do.

    Of course not. He comes home from work and sits in his easy chair, reading the newspaper that the paperboy left at his doorstep, as his wife makes dinner.

    Sorry for the zeka reference. i didn't mean to confuse you. Let we rephrase what I said:

    "Perhaps you didn't notice that almost all the tuberculosis, measles, whooping cough, mumps, scarlet fever, and bubonic plague infections here were acquired by US citizens who had travel to places where the virus exists, both within and outside the US."

  • vt_investor vt_investor Jun 20, 2016 11:14 AM Flag

    Won't work. Perhaps you didn't notice that almost all the Zeka infections here were acquired by US citizens who had travel to places where the virus exists. It's just the same with other diseases. Measles cases in the US were nearly all unvaccinated US citizens, usually who had recently traveled some, within or outside the country, quite a few recently to a Disney park.

    And that ban is pretty much toothless, as a drive of a few hundred miles to a state with no magazine size ban would get whatever that terrorist wanted.

  • vt_investor vt_investor Jun 20, 2016 10:56 AM Flag

    So I repeat. It clearly looks like you support some additional government regulations that require that all citizens, travelers, and visitors be vaccinated. That would clearly solve the problem. Write you representatives.

  • vt_investor vt_investor Jun 20, 2016 10:44 AM Flag

    What's your solution?

    Those diseases can all be stopped dead with vaccinations. Are you now saying that you want the government to make a law saying that everyone must be vaccinated? That would clearly solve your problem.

  • vt_investor vt_investor Jun 20, 2016 10:36 AM Flag

    I'm sorry this is so complicated for you, Springer. When you register to vote, you need documents to prove your age, citizenship, and domicile. This can be done with a birth certificate, and an electric bill, this includes your name and a local address. (You may note that neither is a photo ID) You can even register to vote by mail (in the military service, for example). In that case you need similar information, as well as an affidavit that you sign, and that is witnessed by a justice of the peace, or other acceptable official.

    One you have proven your age, citizenship, and domicile when you register, noting else should be needed - unless you want deny the right to vote to those who couldn't get their birth certificate from their safe deposit box in time to vote.

    If you want to address voter fraud, then let's look at where fraud sometimes actually happens - with those working at polling places, and with the absentee ballots. I don't see how anyone can think that we have done anything to address fraud when all of the current efforts have been aimed in the wrong direction - at taking away the Constitutional right to vote from many legal citizens whose right to vote should always be protected, and not at where fraud sometimes happens.
