Opinion : "Mueller Report" will result in new investigations in Congress

By: JohnRussell  •  103 comments  •  12 seconds ago
Analysts are going through the now released Mueller Report.  There is more than enough in there to trigger investigations in Congress.   The report specifically states that the prosecutors were not able to conclude that Trump did not obstruct justice.  It also shows that Mueller's team was not able to acquire sufficient evidence about various topics because witnesses were not...

By   Savannah Smith The New Hampshire Senate voted Thursday to repeal the death penalty with a veto-proof majority, setting the stage for the state to become the latest to outlaw capital punishment.

Apr 18 12:56pm @2.3.93 It's not the quoting. Dare I say it again....It's the non-believer quoting from a Book they don't believe in to call out religious people they don't like. When I see somebody do that, I go right...
Apr 18 12:54pm @2.3.92 "..." Then you admit it!  Why are we going in circles?Your sweeping generalization that people of faith (or as you specify -Christians) are hypocrites is wrong and unjust.
Apr 17 10:21pm @2.3.88 Good night Sandy
Apr 17 10:18pm @2.3.87 Then what on earth did it relate to? Was it a personal attack on me?Skirting the code, maybe?Just a random thought?
Apr 17 9:31pm @2.3.85 And you also added: "Jesus hated a hypocrite."You said that!

Apr 13 11:19am @2.3.34 Are we down to smearing religious people as hypocrites?  Let's assume they were...I'd prefer a hypocrite to a forthright progressive any day!

Apr 12 12:54pm @2.3.19 In what way?
