So, it's been a few hours and no one has said anything either on or off topic.

But the minute someone expresses a thought unrelated to the topic you can bet your bottom dollar some will materialize to complain because that's what they do.

Andy,

Which is the primary reason why I seldom have anything to say beyond my initial response to the poll question anymore.

The poll used to be very disciplined but no more. Too damn many prima donnas more interested in doing their own thing (vis-a-vis the Velveeta Raccoon).

Andy, seems to me people commented on the poll topic until they ran out of stuff to say.

Besides, who exactly is preventing anyone from commenting or conversing about the topic?

Aesop's Fables, translated by Laura Gibbs (2002)
434. THE MAN AND THE GOLDEN EGGS
Perry 87 (Syntipas 27)


A man had a hen that laid a golden egg for him each and every day. The man was not satisfied with this daily profit, and instead he foolishly grasped for more. Expecting to find a treasure inside, the man slaughtered the hen. When he found that the hen did not have a treasure inside her after all, he remarked to himself, 'While chasing after hopes of a treasure, I lost the profit I held in my hands!'

The fable shows that people often grasp for more than they need and thus lose the little they have.

Note: In other versions of this fable (e.g., Avianus 33), the bird is a goose. In the Buddhist Suvannahamsa - jataka, a bird with golden feathers is plucked bare by its owner.

Usually, things are the way they are because someone above wants them that way.

Well, take a look at the budget just passed in the Senate.

"First, let's look at the budget bill that the Republican Senate passed Thursday, which Trump is now publicly applauding. It would cut funding by $5 trillion over the next decade. And guess who would suffer the most from these cuts? Senior citizens, the poor and the disabled.

Here's why: The GOP Senate budget calls for "$473 billion in cuts from Medicare over 10 years." That would be a painful blow to the over 55 million Americans -- including my own mother, and maybe yours, too -- who depend on this very popular program to manage the cost of their health care.

Add to that, the GOP budget cuts over $1 trillion from Medicaid over the next decade. This is the very definition of cruel. Medicaid is a lifeline for over 70 million Americans -- including the disabled, poor, children and, once again, senior citizens. In fact, seniors would arguably bear the brunt of the GOP's cuts because Medicaid covers 60% of those in nursing homes. So some seniors may see both their Medicaid and Medicare benefits slashed.

And as Trump stated in his tweet, all of these proposed budget cuts are designed to give "the biggest tax cut in U.S. history." And who will benefit from this gargantuan tax cut? Well, again, you don't need to be an expert to know that when the Republicans are in control of government, the rich often benefit the most."

Dr White, your admonishment and request is falling on deaf ears and blind eyes. It is probably about a year and a half too late. In the words of GA MacArthur aboard Missouri in Tokyo Bay, "These proceedings are closed".

Andy, I have given up reading these polls due to excessive partisan and off subject posts from all sides. I checked back just now to see the pulse of this poll. No change. Opportunity lost.
