you never come off passive aggressive, but rather show a quick sense of humor

As the average American, I've had it. Enough already. There's an election in two years. If you want Trump and his Cabinet gone. Vote Him out..

PRONOUCE BETO'S NAME CORRECTLY. He's not going to win, so give him that at least.

You talked about how it's odd that republican voters like outsiders considering it's the party in control most of the time, but did you guys consider that the GOP and it's base always acts like it's the victim? They might have power but they don't believe they do. The GOP feels like Christianity is under attack even though the vast majority of the country is Christian. They play the victim of the establishment, it doesn't matter that they're the establishment. It's about feels over reals.

SC and its Justices' Clerks need to consider all Moon's points made here and in supporting documents, and not only the lawyers' interpretations: unassisted opinions will be worthless.

Live shows are awful. They just come across with a focus on entertainment rather than information.

Why not IRV (Instant Run-off Vote) with remain, clean brexit, and May's plan. Seems simple enough for a referendum.

Caroline Thompson An Instant Run-off Vote (IRV). Vote for your first, and then second choices. That's it. Simple. My first choice would be remain. My second would be May's plan. Tally all the first choices. Something gets more than 50% that wins; otherwise the choice in last place gets eliminated. The people who picked the choice eliminated get their votes moved to their second choice. Now there's a winner. My guess is that remain and clean brexit would go on to the second round and most of the voters for May's plan would move to remain. The end.

GraWsA Three options gets so dicey though. Do you ask it in two questions? Or one with three options? But then how would the vote go? One vote or ranked voting? It's anything but simple

Metoric is a misnomer you should call it ballistic like. Metors fall, rockets follow a ballistic trajectory hence a quick rise...

Wayne Crannell my brother Wayne a good way to remember his name is by going by his race. He is Irish, so a good way to remember is by saying "potato." Yes, "Potato Francis O'Rourke" for President! yeah my father was Irish (Dillon), but he died when I was nine (in 74). However my mother is Mexican, and I lived in Mochis Sinaloa after pops passed. I NEVER ran across a Irish-man named Robert, called "Beto" for short! He's trying to appropriate my mother's culture!

For the love of all that is holy and the sweet little baby Jesus, Nate will you learn to pronounce Beto's name correctly. If you're doing it on purpose, it's neither cute nor some sort of intellectual contrarianism. It's HIS name. He has told us how to pronounce it. Just stop.
