What does it mean to be moderate?

A moderator can know the extremes. But the choice is not to go there unless absolutely necessary.
Any effort to reach for a middle ground, especially from an extreme is a remarkable thing.

The "sex scandal" in news is about exhausted. Like the li'l boy who cried wolf too many times. I am uncertain if its a feeding frenzy, deep pocket searches, or some other motive, or a planned strategy to discredit- and that could come from one or numerous sides with the same result of reader weariness and apathy.
Any way cut, we're being carved up like a roast.

I read 25 candidates, GOP and DNC may challenge Trump. The GOP split into many pieces, upon which Trump capitalized by collecting the losers' delegates. The DNC split with Clinton and her dirty deals to sack Sanders. If the nation splits apart too much, we may begin to resemble Italy. Imagine the dollar challenged in value by the lira? Historically we have been a solid wall. Lately our wall needs some repair. If we let it go, to argue too much, it will eventually be ruined.

    Why is there this need to do this with you every time? You know what my point is but you choose to start out with some wacky extreme. No thanks.

            Denyiny their business model depends upon ypur intentional and wilful denial. Surely your intent was not to boor me with a boorish reprise?
            • I do not deny it. I point out that men have no one to blame but themselves. Men need to man-up and fix their Business Model and themselves instead of blaming their victims.

                  Is there not another diversion we can take up and run into the ground?

                    Unedited raw. No autotune. No editing with sound correction software. This is a first take, confirmed by the studio producer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MUdKrtsrCBI

                            he ought to not be in a studio, much less on stage for a live-in performance. There are millions of pretty good singers. Big deal. What does Bob have? Good looks? A big crotch package? Huge tits?... more
