I don't think you would get an argument from anyone regarding that. And Milano can take a lesson from Trump--Ted's father and Lee Harvey...you know what 'they' say.

Debating anything with Ted Cruz is an exercise in futility. He is a mechanical drone, who will regurgitate preprogrammed messaging.

That is painting all people with a broad brush. Yes there are people here, and everywhere, who use childish name calling rather than logic and that is true for all sides of any debate. But it is not true that nobody who comes here ever modifies their thinking based on what gets posted here. Just because you don't hear about it doesn't mean it doesn't happen. I am speaking from my own experience. The arguments that do capture someone's attention are those that are well constructed and based on facts rather than emotional rants.

and she doesn't?

My IQ has dropped 20 points reading some of these responses, like "she's an expert in guns because she made a movie with Arnold when she was 8". JEEZ

You are correct. I'm talking about those who ignore the facts and still exhibit their sociopathic logic. If people, with a brain, never call them out they would come in here just to shut down every conversation.

You might be right about this! Somewhere in those 20 IQ points you lost might have been the ability to discern sarcasm from context.

And btw, Rae Dawn Chong, who was also excellent in that movie, wound up as a conservative, unlike Alyssa. Arnold of course wound up far-right. What went wrong??? Alyssa needs to do an intervention on both.

I'm not so sure about this. It's all a part of the effort to make the Democratic party out to be the party of AOC, Ilhan Omar, and now Alyssa Milana. I think this is actually an effective strategy for Republicans.
