Nonsense, and that's being polite. If you make an analogy between Senator Harris and gang members, you have even less credibility than I thought you did. I didn't think that was possible.

Unlike the fast food Electrolux in Chief, of course.

I love it. The "kids" are all right. And right.

He didn't pay attention to the reports, nor did he bother to address the argument that Mr. Pitts made. That's typical of most message board posters who take exception to Pitts's articles. They just don't want him in the LJW. If he weren't in the LJW, the paper's reputation and credibility would take a hit, however. Pitts has won the Pulitzer Prize and there is no doubt that his are among the most compelling--and, for that matter, fair, balanced, and factual--columns in the mass media today.

The letter is nonsense. The student was wrong to have that weapon on campus and the school authorities handled it the right way.

I value the letter writer's commentary. A human being was shot and killed. As she states, and very reasonably so, there were alternatives.

Yes. The behavior and BS of so many Evangelicals is accomplishing one thing with flying colors, however--ensuring that the trend of young people abandoning religion will intensify.

Young people, in general, also do not like 45th President at all. The "kids" are all right--and right.

The comment shows you know more about which side of a boat is which than you do about what's good for the country.*

This is typical of the majority of statements by people who stick up for Trump. They are incapable of arguing for him on positive grounds. They are forever on the defensive, lauding their hero for annoying their perceived victimizers ("the media," "the liberal elite") and preventing politicians they loathe (often women and people of color) from winning elections.

Can't totally blame them, though. Not easy to make a case for the merits of someone who lacks them as a political leader, a businessman, and a human being.

I'd say it's because Gary cannot critique the argument that Pitts makes, so he settles for trying to sell us a false equivalence, along with making all kinds of other references that have nothing to do with Pitts's argument and everything to do with Gary's delusion that Donald Trump is a victim.

Fun fact: Alan Dershowitz was on the Simpson "Dream Team" that successfully defended him in 1995.
