We treat Presidential candidates like we do our sports teams. Use the New England Patriots as an example. Everyone knows Tom Brady was aware of the deflated footballs, yet Patriot fans defend him to the end. Winning is more important than integrity and morals in our society.

I check the vent once a month to see if they’ve gone back to the old vent to please their readers or kept the new one to please the AJC. See .you next month!

What amazes me is how the media can make or break any candidate. They dig up something insignificant and turn it into a controversy which ultimately ends a potentially good candidate’s run. All while our predominantly uninformed public hangs on every word as though they’re watching “Dancing With The Stars”.

What is your definition of a christian. Christians — crusades, inquisition, witch burnings, flat earthers, did not actively oppose slavery, aided in oppression of native americans and other native peoples.did not stand against Hitler, just a few examples.

If Republicans were smart they would stop wearing their religion on their sleeves and quit getting baited into looking like a bunch of Bible-thumping hypocrites. Stop being led into focusing on abortion and gay marriage. Democrats lie to elected and then do whatever they want. Republicans need to take a page out of their playbook.

Saying comments are not very christian assumes that folks are really christians. According to reports christianity is on the decline in the US. Also non religious, agnostics growing as well as muslims. And people can discuss religious topics wthout being christians. Some people have just studied religions at some point.

If the Republican candidates are smart, they will take on the mainstream media. Call the mainstream media out as the democratic tools they have become. The latest polls show people despise the media.

Election of U.S. Representatives are by districts drawn up by politicians and dictated by federal law. Those are manipulated intentionally to try to equalize representation. No doubt many whites vote for whites only and many blacks vote for blacks only. and in many states races live in clusters. The Republicans were able to turn out their districts.
Senators elected state wide. More whites are registered to vote than other races. Thus both U.S. House and Senate are majority Repub now.

You conservatives wouldn’t know a socialist if he came into your house and nationalized your toaster. Your constant gross misuse of the word has watered it down to a meaningless buzzword you use to disparage people who disagree with you.

Hillary never said there were no emails. She did say there were no classified emails and there weren’t, until today when the FBI classified one. Apparently making it public would endanger a source, but I suppose that’s ok with you.

Have a safe holiday weekend and don’t forget to take along your drivers license (or a fake one), your registration (still in the name of the last owner), your tag (which is cardboard and reads “ain’t got no tag”), and your insurance card (valid for one day only when you do finally buy a tag. Don’t worry about taking along you concealed gun carry permit. It’s illegal in GA for anyone to ask if you have one. Drive safely and good luck out there!

You are right, but I get so aggravated when only half truths are given here and in the news.
Not only did President George W. Bush negotiate the deadline for withdrawal of our troops from Iraq, President Obama tried to extend that deadline. EXTEND it.
But Iraq would not exempt our soldiers from possible charges, imprisonment and execution had they accidentally hurt or killed an Iraq citizen. Who would want their child or soldier there under those circumstances?
