  1. Reply to tmcoffee

    The fact that you can't spell Senator Reid's name correctly, despite it being all over the Sun's website, speaks volumns.

  2. sevenhills says: "Shows you right there that all the political options are a JOKE."

    It shows that people are to lazy to get away from the computer and do something about their future.

    They would rather just post nonsense here.

    tmcoffee2003, you are a perfect example of your statement.

  3. vegaslee, 7hills has a point.

    The concept of voting indicates "choice."

    When you look at a ballot and see no reasonable choice, walking away is the only intelligent, reasonable choice.

    Voting for wealthy left or wealthy right has become tedious and insulting to the "unequal" working class.

    I will walk around for the remainder of this year, looking at voting age people.

    A majority (63.3%) made a choice (voted) from a position of no choice.

    This voluntary action (really programmed patriotism) earned Las Vegas the right to retain the "Dumbest in the Land" heavyweight belt.

    Don't be insulted.

    Stop waving your flag and...think.
