Happy Thanksgiving to all DUers, their families and Friends and all Americans!

Be well and have a great time with your family and friends.

I am so itching to ask DUers if you are glad that Glen

is alive on the Walking Dead. Prior to that, I was so excited with Sasha's smile and then we saw they got rescued by Darryl (sp). I love that show.

Sad to say, just my opinion and nothing against Mrs. Clinton's supporters, I do not

think Bernie has a chance of winning the Democratic nomination. Omalley is way behind. Mrs. Clinton is inevitable! Even if you do not like her, she is better than any republican, republicans are not progressive.

You all have to vote for Hillary if she is the nominee, otherwise, there are stakes at the supreme court. Just my two cents from across the border. We got Justin Trudeau and we are proud!

This is a hypothetical question about giving a politician a second chance!

What would it take for the American voters or Canadians to accept Mrs. Clinton's apology for voting for the invasion of Iraq? I do not see Bush, Colin Powell or Ms. Rice being hauled over the coals for their collusion in an illegal invasion. Mrs. Clinton has apologised but it does not bring back what the US did to Iraq, invaded a sovereign country that never attacked the US, killed countless people, raped girls and the end result are people who dislike the US, so much so, they do not even care who they kill anymore.

Another thing that baffles me, the powers of the time gave settlement to the Israelis in Palestinian land, yet Palestine is not a state and the minute that UNESCO accepted Palestine for educational purposes, the US and frigging Canada stop their financial support to UNESCO.

Is this what Americans signed up for after 9/11? The answers am looking for is that if anyone came into my home, I will try to protect myself as best as I can. How do you think people feel when another country invade their sovereignty?

I know this is highly political and the powers at DU can feel free to delete it. The world is so full of double standards that you feel so lost when you cannot find answers to simple questions.

Thank you.

DUers, That was a fantastic debate and Rachel Madow was a great Moderator

Having seen her debate with all three Candidates, am tongue-tied as to whom I would support, not that I can vote.

Mrs. Clinton did great but for some reason am leaning towards Mr. Sanders. Whom do you think may win over the South?

Why do your electoral process take so long?

Is it a mandate in your constitution?

Am curious, here in Canada, we had three months and voters were complaining it was too long! Mind you, within the three months, we got to know more about Mr. Justin Trudeau's policies and we even got to know who Mr. Tom Mulcair policies were. Well, Mr. Trudeau won as we all know!

Not sure if this is the right forum to address how much I was disenchanted that the

Walking Dead killed out Glen! And I was liking the guy who shot himself in the head.

If the producers kill anyone else, I will be devastated.

Anyone looking forward to seeing the new episode of the Walking Dead?

I cannot wait to see the new series, I just hope they do not get rid of Daryll.

Why cant the US try some of the gun control laws that most developed countries have tried

and are now working regarding mass shootings?

No one is trying to take away guns from people in the US, but why a person who is not of voter age is able to amass many guns? You do not need to stockpile weapons to be safe!

Here in Canada if you are not a homeowner, you cannot get a gun and it takes about six months to get through profiling and you have to get at least two recommendations from people who know you in order for a person to get considered to get or own a gun. That to me seems like a good idea. If you like in an apartment or a condo, you cannot own a gun in Canada. Is this so hard for America to introduce?

It breaks my heart to see so many killings especially with the recent one in Oregon!

I really do not understand why the GOP wants to defund Planned Parenthood!

That system is totally geared towards womens well being, how on earth the GOP wants to defund it. It is a necessity for women.

Gosh, I benefitted from it when I moved to Barbados in 1990, had to go there to get examined and then they recommended a doctor for me to see.
