    I've made your first line. Now to push it down further.

    There are number of your items I agree with, and I have some of my own.

    May the road rise up to meet you......

    Regarding transformers
    The Netflix show war for cybertron series was very good IMO
    Better than the new live action movies
    That’s all I can help with on your list

    That might change as I follow Tom Brady more than the Patriots.

    I think we should all write lists like this (not necessarily to share). It was enjoyable to read - so thanks.

    I can go along with almost everything to a more or less enthusiastic degree. The one exception is I think we've had enough Bushes in the white house (and I am a die hard Republican). I can personally attest to the pancreatic cancer thing as a surgeon with 350 surgeries under his belt operated on me for the first stage 1 pancreatic cancer he had ever seen.

    I'm too much if a realist. I'll settle for an end to abortions that are medically necessary to save a woman's life. And an end to the absurd notion of 40+ genders. If you think you are something you are not you need psychological help not surgery.

    Oh and most of our problems could be solved by a return to dependence on God for blessings rather than government.

    We live here quite comfortably on our two ss checks. I have everything I need, a grocery store and a used book store I can walk to should I wish or the car breaks down. I never wanted to be rich or wished for the responsibilities that go with it.

    Seems to me the primary problem we have right now is too many that got rich way too young, and think that means that that gives them the right to run everyone's life. DC these days is full of them
