    Coors Light (sold in an aluminum can with minimal printing, called a “Silver Bullet”) is a cold filtered, 4.2% alcohol by volume, pale lager with almost no hops.Not a bad drink if you are thirsty, but not a lot of taste.A beer for people who don’t care for the taste of beer.

    You are not limited to the two main parties.There will be other candidates on the ballot for that office.Might only serve as a protest vote, but if you are already at the polling site, you might as well.

    A) Even if true, the reclassified documents should have been removed after they were reclassified. No doing so is a violation that results in the person responsible ( in this case, Mrs. Clinton) losing security clearance.

    B) You’ve never dealt with classified information, have you?Everyone accessing classified information is required to have the necessary clearance for that information.A subordinate may, and often does, have a higher clearance then those above them in the chain of command.

    Yes, the POTUS is a special, in that access is granted to all levels of security IF there is a “need to know”. “Need to Know” status is NOT determined by the POTUS, and a record of not following security procedures is a valid reason to deny “need to know” status for classified information.There are many types of information that the POTUS does not normally have a need to know, and will not have access to under normal circumstances.Under unusual circumstances, when the POTUS may believe they have a need to know information they do not normally have access to, the POTUS will need to make a case for access to such information. Such access may, or may not, be granted on an individual basis.

    The minimum penalty for Mr’s Clinton’s misuse of classified documents is that her security clearance would be revoked.That could result in an interesting conversation:“My apologies, Madame President, but you don’t have the clearance to be briefed on this matter.”“How am I supposed to make an informed decision if I don’t have all the information?”“You can’t, so you’ll have to let the decision be made at a lower level by people who know what they are doing.”

    Might not be a bad idea…

    Most of those I knew about, just not that they had Black ancestry.Minor correction: Mendez (not Mendes) was born in 1942, went into space for a bit over a week in 1980. First Hispanic in space, reported to be the first person of African ancestry to fly in space, considered himself to be Hispanic, not Black.

    Every person to have flown in space since 1950 has had African ancestry, as our ancestors all came from Africa.Mendez had one or more ancestors who came from Africa since 1492.

    Not entirely correct.ACA provided the opportunity to get health INSURANCE, possibly at a reduced price.Emergency health care was already available, often at no charge to the patient, being paid for from taxes, to nearly all of those who purchased health insurance under the ACA, due to Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA), passed in 1986.

    Dr. Chang Dias is a remarkable individual, but he wasn’t the first to do anything (first astronaut, first Latin American, etc) at NASA.
