I’m Back!

Well, I’ve just returned from an exhilarating and eye-opening month of backpacking through Europe, and now I’m prepared with renewed vigor to confront the supposedly real world in which Donald Trump is considered a serious contender for president.

Please don’t dazzle us with any flighty philosophical glitter. There are objective facts, and pointing them out can help to clarify any issue! This is not a hard concept to grasp!

      • I changed my provider and email address while you were away, so it now appears that I have made only one post on your website. Is there anyway to add the old comments to my new email address? If not I’ll just start over again.

      • I don’t know what you’re seeing on your end, Peter, but I still see all of your comments with your name on them. Even when I view the site without signing in.

  1. No matter POP,

    what I mean is that they seem not to be listed due to the different email address I now have. However, I know which topics I commented on and I can look in your archives to read them anytime I want.
