I don't agree with you about the tree huggers. What do you think it would take to fill in the mouth of the North and South Rivers between 3rd and 4th cliffs.

You're bringing up welfare in the context of tyranny? Welfare is a gift, paid for by people like me. It should not be used for entertainment or anything else that isn't essential. Your point has no place in any discussion about obamacare.

Ahhhh you brought up tyranny like most of your off the wall rants and like it or not welfare is NOT a gift! Its an entitlement and has become a way of life for millions. There is also corporate welfare thats practices by many Republicans. Giving someone free basic medical services should have certain conditions and birth control for people who have no means to support their offspring should be one of them!!

The doctor is in. And so is the mogul.

The latest poll about the 2016 Republican presidential nomination from Quinnipiac University shows both retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and real-estate mogul Donald Trump making the cut for presidential debates.

Both Fox News and CNN have said only the top-10 finishers in national polls will earn spots on stage at GOP debates. The Quinnipiac survey, conducted May 19-26 and released Thursday, won’t be the last word. But going on this survey, at least, Carson can get comfortable: He’s in a five-way tie for first place among Republican voters with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

Trump is further down the list, in eighth place. But “the Donald” fares better than South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former New York Gov. George Pataki, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum. None of them make the top 10.

Trump of course will have to actually run for president to be included in the debate.

Pataki announced his candidacy Thursday morning. Santorum declared he is running at an event in Pennsylvania on Wednesday. Graham is expected to unveil his campaign on June 1. Jindal is expected to announce his bid next month, and Perry is actively laying groundwork for another shot at the White House.

Carson and Trump will have to keep their numbers up if they want to get on the Republican stage. Fox has said it will require contenders to finish in the top 10 of an average of the five most recent national polls in the run-up to its Aug. 6 debate in Cleveland. CNN will feature the top 10 in its own Sept. 16 debate. The network will also hold a separate debate with lower-tiered candidates who have at least 1% in polls.

Would the same crowd who whined about Obama's lack of experience actually vote for Carson?

I don't think the population or government have a the ability to fix it themselves, what's it going to take?

This hole "global warming" cry is just a money-grab from insurance bigwigs who want us regulars to pay through the nose.

SeaDog Tho I cant vote for you in Scituate I did throw you a vote for you the last time you ran for office, Steve Coulter. And you know from our recent call I think you do a good job as president of our local GOP, Steve, poking the demobrats! But I also think you are getting a might bit dirty with posts here and on facebook. I wasn't sittin' on the bedpost but it sounds more like this Ed Meech is a fool gambler who lost his job no reason to keep kickin' the man when he's down or hurtin his family. Maybe you should bring your Board of Housing in Scituate to meet with Marshfield and sort out your ideas?

Political parties do matter in the minds of too many American voters, unfortunately. That is why we are still in danger of electing Hillary or Jeb, or one of the other establishment candidates, despite what we know they would bring to the presidency.

I am saying neither major party should matter. The Democrats and the establishment faction of the GOP have lost all identity. They are absolutely useless to American middle class. These two could merge and become one party. The could call themselves the party of Betrayel.

The parties, as we see them today, exist through the efforts of the Government Media Complex. You know, the six corporations that own 90% of the nations's news media - the guys who benefit most directly from all the campaign funds they raise for the establishment candidates. Why would they want anything to change? Think of it as a spell they cast over us. Call the spell "name recognition."

This stuff is obvious. So while we're here wasting time over whether the parties matter or not we should be discussing which candidate would be most likely to break the propaganda spell coming at us, AM and FM, 24/7.
