    Santorum and Huckabee will be like Kim Davis - they simply won't go away. Like a winter cold or that really bad date you keep bumping into.

    Very strange, I've watched every second of THIS debate and that was not asked. What debate are you watching?

    Donald Trump, a literal billionaire, said on national TV that wages are too high

    I watched the entire 2-hour debate and I thought that Gov. Kasich proffered the most substantive policy arguments.

    He sorta comes off that he's in the wrong party. Definitely a centrist, but with the skill set to do the job.

    I remember the question, though I'm surprised you posed the question to the automated headline and link copy and paste Metta unit. The Metta unit does not engage in conversation, it simply copies and pastes, copies and pastes.

    Ironically, it recently malfunctioned and reposted a topic that it had posted weeks ago amusingly titled:

    The Flight From Conversation

    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/4136016

    A perfect summation of the automated Metta unit - "flight from conversation" indeed.


    "Very strange, I've watched every second of THIS debate and that was not asked"

    Of the prime time debate? Must have been during a commercial break. I watched every second including the 30 minutes or so before the debate began and nothing was asked like that.

    Gov. Kasich is definitely the right man to win the GOP primary. He has the leadership ability, he is very knowledgeable, and he is a fiscal conservative/moderate centrist. He would make an outstanding President and he would help unify this great country. His only obstacle, getting around all the ignorant hot heads and narrow minded bible thumping screwballs who have raised havoc in the GOP.

    Philosophers Don’t Get Much Respect, But Their Earnings Don’t Suck

    "when it comes to earnings for people who only have undergraduate degrees, philosophy majors have the fourth-highest median earnings, $81,200 per year, out-ranking business and chemistry majors, according to the ETS. Bar none, philosophy majors have the highest salary growth trajectory from entry to mid-career."

    "narrow minded bible thumping screwballs"

    I've never heard you use that one before. Whatever do you mean by "narrow minded bible thumping screwballs"?

    However you do it, gotta get through the GOP primaries before you have any shot at the big job. I think he could very well versus Hillary, but I think his chances surviving the primaries aren't that great. And I agree, if he made it, I think he'd be a fine president.

    What on earth would they do except sit around and post to RJ 24/7

    " Carly Fiorina, who has an undergraduate degree in philosophy and medieval history from Stanford"

    Good, I see she's prepared for the GOP debates.

    Lol (@ cartoon). The questions were generally such a gift the candidates could hardly contain their delight.

    My impression of the main debate (watched via a very good quality Fox live stream):

    Cruz - Over-rehearsed high school drama performance, but should have rehearsed his "departments to cut" speech a bit better (doing "a Perry").

    Kasich - Plenty of ideas and conviction, but came over as a bit too hectoring and annoying.

    Fiorina - I never really got past her constant mic popping (stand the f**k away from the mic!) - very distracting.

    Bush - Just too dull (again). Even when he 'went' for Trump it was like being savaged by a dead sheep.

    Carson - Calm and measured (almost soporific). Sidestepped his fibs and wasn't pressed on West Point issue (he will be if he becomes the nominee).

    Rubio - Silver-tongued, but got a pretty easy ride (no credit card query), except where Paul went for his jugular ("not Conservative").

    Paul - Seemed the candidate most committed to his principles and stuck to them.

    Trump - Getting weaker. Thin arguments and even his invoking good ol' Ike fell a bit flat. Mic popping (a la Fiorina, but not quite as bad).

    Is that everyone?

    Aren't you confusing this with Hillary Clinton naming "The Republicans" as her worst enemy?

    "Fiorina - I never really got past her constant mic popping (stand the f**k away from the mic!) - very distracting."

    Beats sibilance .... Thinking of all of my Harry Belafonte at Carnegie Hall, circa 1959, Living Stereo or reissues.

    "Kasich - Plenty of ideas and conviction, but came over as a bit too hectoring and annoying."

    Yep, I went to school with the guy. He was that way back then or maybe worse. Never really found him to be a warm and cuddly sort of individual, but he sure got a lot done.

    I think he's the best candidate (on either side) to actually do the job.
