    I think Biden looked better to SC voters simply because he tried to maintain some decorum and didn't jump on the dogpile with the others. At times it was quite embarassing to be a Democrat. The worst...

    Bloomberg had at least one very effective ad that focused entirely on Trump and his idiotic buffoonery. Not directly supporting Bernie, they seem to be aimed at shaming the Trump supporters who are...

    I can agree with all of what you said, only just...

    The definition of consciousness is to be aware of one's surroundings, so maybe awareness versus conscious awareness is a false dichotomy. Instead one can say - there is awareness - and the idea of...

    I wouldn’t count out Warren for sure. Klobuchar has always been a longer shot. I also really liked Booker. From what I’ve read, the general feeling among older black voters is that we need an...

    I live in a city of 90,000 and the scope of mayor's responsibilities are trivial compared to what it takes to run a country.

    I think it's necessary to distinguish conscious awareness from awareness as a general term. A squirrel or an insect or (I would say) even a computer can be described as sensing or of being aware....

    I've never noticed him stuttering in the past. And this doesn't come across as stuttering either. The latest one seems more like Alzheimers, although the inability to make sense or find the right...
