Why haven't the Democrats made more progress on their campaign promises?
Jack, Why do you continue to beat this horse? It's dead. No matter how many times you systematically repeat this question, my answer is and will always be the same. Once they get the prize, they forget about the people who bought their ticket. --Nick, Mount Carmel, Pennsylvania
The Democratic Congress has been all smoke and mirrors since they were elected. Unless they start coming through on some of those campaign promises, they will find themselves the minority after the next election. --Terry, Kernersville, North Carolina
If you decide to repeat what you've been doing, you know exactly what to do. If you are going to strike out for something different, the choices are endless and gathering a consensus is much harder. Also, the Democrats do not have great big leads in the Congress, especially the Senate. --Lee, Phoenix, Alaska
What can be done to prevent the United States from going the way of the Roman Empire?
The Caesars should listen to their slaves. --Eli, San Marcos, Texas
Our present representatives in Washington, D.C. have forgotten our Constitution and all of history's lessons of the past. The politicians act as if this country should be run "By, Of, and For" the large corporations. It's sad to say, but the only way to prevent a repeat of the Roman Empire fall is to borrow a French guillotine and put it to good use in Washington. --William, Sanford, North Carolina
By not trying to conquer the world. The lifespan of empires is measured in decades in the modern era, not centuries like the Roman Empire of old. --Ray, Lubbock, TexasWhy do you think men and women diet differently?
Men, once pushed against the wall, will act with all they have, such as hitting the gym and cutting out beer. Men are into extremes. They are volatile. Women are deliberative (most of them) and thus will not act so rash. Brain wiring, plain and simple. --Sam, Bloomfield, New Jersey
Last I checked, men and women drive differently, work differently, act differently, play differently, walk differently, talk differently. Why not diet differently? --Rob, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Jack this one is simple, American men are too consumed with their outer appearance in our superficial society and they are normally trying to impress women. American women tend to be more sensible and don't see extreme measures as the end all answer to weight loss...Or we can just say men are just aggressive and women tend to be lazier but that wouldn't be politically correct. --Steve, New York
Simple Jack, men just don't give a damn what they look like, so they eat like pigs. --Mark, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
