wow.  that's the best nonanswer I've seen in a while.  :P :P  oh well.

Ask a specific question, you'll get a specific answer.

Ask a vague question, you'll either get a request for clarification or a vague answer.

So looking around about planet nine, it sounds like the possibility of a 15,000 year elliptical orbit that would explain its absence?  When is it coming back?   - they should simply call the movie Planet 9 (instead of District 9 :)   )      Who should be in the cast?

Is it a prequel of Planet 51?

Correct way to read the bible is to not open it.

Even better, burn it! :D

Shouldn't promote book burning, joke or not.

A Trump advisor says that Hillary Clinton should be executed for treason. What treasonous act did she commit?

CLEVELAND -- It is not enough to simply beat Hillary Clinton, an adviser to Donald Trump’s campaign said. She must be killed.

The theme of the last two nights has been less 'Make America Safe Again' or 'Make America Work Again' and more 'Lock Her Up.' But some of Trump's most diehard supporters want to go further -- they want her to be executed.

"Anyone that commits treason should be shot," Al Baldasaro, an adviser to the Trump campaign for veterans issues, he told The Daily Beast. "I believe Hillary Clinton committed treason. She put people in danger. When people take confidential material off a server, you're sharing information with the enemy. That's treason."

Baldasaro was expanding on a violent call he made Tuesday, when he called for Clinton to be "put in the firing line" over her mishandling of classified emails. He made these remarks on the Jeff Kuhner Show, Buzzfeed reported.

But Trump’s adviser, who is also a state representative in New Hampshire, is not the only one at the convention who believes that Clinton should be executed for treasonous acts.

West Virginia lawmaker Michael Folk said earlier this week that Hillary Clinton should be "hung on the mall in Washington DC" for treason. And on the campaign trail, reports show that Trump supporters have repeatedly called for her death.

[...]

“I'm a military man. Any person who gives up information on an unclassified server, you're putting Americans at risk,” he told The Daily Beast. “If you're the commander in chief or you're the secretary of state, you're dealing with the military. What makes her any better than people in the military? What makes her above the law?”

[Edit]

I just looked, the US Military hasn't executed a soldier since 1961. So, the question isn't how is she any better but why is she less than a soldier if she's been a leader of them as a Secretary of State?

[Edit]

The guy is being investigated by the Secret Service:

I had the displeasure of listening to part of Chris Christie's 'speech' last night, and I was rather disgusted.  What the hell are these people thinking, calling for the opposing candidate to be locked up simply because of the accusations of someone on the opposing side?  Especially when a number of those accusations are specious at best, and several of them have been shown to be false?  Even though I don't like Hillary Clinton, that's not an excuse to pull that kind of crap.

Frankly, at this point, the Republican Party is pretty close to dead to me.  Which is sad when you consider its history.

So true.  You'd like to think that the Republican Party respects the FBI and House committee investigations that tore through Benghazi and the emails over and over and over and over.  For them to continue against Hillary after the investigations says more about how sad they have become then about Hillary.  But they continue (ala Christie) nevertheless.  I believe we will see in November exactly what happened 4 years ago.  The right lives in a bubble of their own thinking that ignores the realities around them.    Isn't there someone with clout within their ranks that is objective enough to see that?  Their inability to see how they have affected a growing Hispanic community whose votes they need show their shortsightedness.
