Since today's the 15th anniversary of his death, I figured this was a good time to ask this.
Had he not gotten lung cancer (or had he beaten it and returned), how long would he have stayed in the anchor chair for World News Tonight? Obviously, he would've been there for Katrina (arrived 3 weeks after he died). Would've had been around to cover the Recession? Is he there reporting on Obama's inauguration? Is he there to close out the 2000s and start the 2010s? Could he, barring retirement or death, still be there today (last week would've been his 82nd birthday)?Media & Journalism3 days ago
Mine is the politicization of everything (SJW logic is a close 2nd, but can be the same thing in a way). I understand the election is next year and political talk regarding that during the new year is justified, but (sorry liberals) it's beyond time to take a break from talking politics and social justice every 30 seconds.

I'm two days late asking, but I noticed a number of black friends on Facebook were trashing Columbus and Columbus Day. I fully understand Native Americans trashing him and the holiday, but idk why blacks are going after him.
As far as I know, he didn't bring African slaves to the New World and do horrible things to them.4 AnswersOther - Cultures & Groups10 months ago

With John McCain's death, I've been thinking.
Aside from Obama being the first minority candidate to be a major party's nominee for president (and his cult-like following), was 2008 the last normal presidential election we've had in the U.S. where you didn't see the type of smearing and division that we saw in 2012 and even more of in 2016?
Yes, it wasn't competitive and Obama, without question, had all the momentum, but you didn't see friendships and relationships get torn apart over the '08 election. You had more of "agree to disagree" and less of "I'm right and you're wrong."11 AnswersPolitics2 years ago
If you announce you're running for a major state office less than a yr before the election, does it hurt your chances of getting elected?
Let's say you're running for Governor or Lt. Governor. You end up waiting until December, maybe January to announce your candidacy. You then wait 6 months before the general election to start putting out ads and signs. And lastly, you win your primary.
Do you have a chance or were you doomed from the start because you waited too long?3 AnswersElections2 years ago
A part of me isn't all that interested in seeing Lebron vs Steph for the 4th straight Finals, but what about y'all? Yay or nay?13 AnswersBasketball2 years ago
No media outlets have clarified which version is about to be voted on.9 AnswersPolitics3 years ago
I've seen various stories from the last month and a half. Some of the stories include:
-The mayor of Austin defending a women-only showing of Wonder Woman
-Lebron's house being vandalized by some racist loon right before the Finals
-The officer who killed Philando Castile getting off and how gun owners and the NRA were silent
-A video a friend shared of prisoners in a St. Louis placed in a jail with deplorable conditions, one of them being no AC, causing prisoners to yell "help us" at people passing by
-Florida's attorney general getting pulled over by a police officer
A part of me sided with/understood the people voicing outrage (I would've sided with them outright 3,4 yrs ago), but another part of me wanted these people to shut up and quit talking. Not because of what they voiced outrage over, but just them voicing outrage.
Don't get wrong, there are real injustices out there that need to be addressed, but I'm just tired of the left's outrage culture and them flipping out. That mainly stems from them getting upset over non-issues such as the professor from Evergreen State College, people wearing sombreros and panchoes, people who believe that there are only 2 genders, someone dressing up as a Native American, sports teams with Native American names, and Trump's name on a sign or sidewalk.2 AnswersPolitics3 years ago

I know people have brought up the health issues he had, but how long would he have lived had he not been assassinated? Does he lived to see his kids graduate high school and college? Does he live to see the Reagan presidency (assuming little changed with presidential elections since he survived Dallas)? Does he live to see Clinton come to office? Does he make it to the 21st century? And would he have any shot at living to see his 100th birthday?6 AnswersPolitics3 years ago
Is it ever alright for someone to tear up the debt slips, but do everything possible to avoid hanging around or associating with a person or group that causes trouble?
I understand if it falls under the category of "forgive but don't forget," but the difference is that you're not dwelling 24/7 on whatever someone or some group did to you and you don't plan on using the incidents against them the next time they screw up. Essentially, what ever went on is nothing more than a footnote that rarely comes up in your mind.5 AnswersOther - Family & Relationships3 years ago
