Re: The Trump for President Thread

So Trump is at it again. Asked about potential problems involved with building a wall across the entire length of the US-Mexico border, from Brownsville-Matamoros (or even El Paso-Ciudad Juarez) to San Diego-Tijuana, the "T-Rump" browbeat reporters in the following (paraphrased) way: "...

Re: The Trump for President Thread

Look, I understand a protest vote as well as the next Joe or Jane. I've cast a few of them myself. But is it really a good idea to protest against the very idea of human decency?

Re: The Hillary Clinton for President Thread

I'm admittedly connecting a couple elements that aren't directly tied here, utilizing a mixed metaphor.... Regarding the hysterical, rabid, avaricious congressional Republicans who are threatening a government shut-down, using Planned Parenthood as their pretext: At least Hillary Clinton isn't prese...

Re: What's wrong with the GOP, anyway?

Are congressional Republicans nihilistic, morons or just plain nihilistic morons?

Re: The Trump for President Thread

If one were to stage a contest to determine who was worse, Scott Walker or Donald Trump, there would only be losers. And that result would include the residents of Wisconsin, the USA and the whole world - at least those of us who are constantly subjected to the ravings of these two especially derang...

Re: The Trump for President Thread

I called it! Trump is an Evil Clown, I said. The Observer described him, basically, as a malign buffoon. Same difference. But this creature must be taken seriously. Although Trump's on stage performance is that of a one-man "political" freak show, he is DANGEROUS. He accurately reflects an...

Re: The Trump for President Thread

Fascist. Arrogant. Bigot. Bully. Donald Trump.
Sorry, I couldn't find it within me to be more articulate.
But the description fits.

Re: The Trump for President Thread

"An uneducated man rarely refuses the opportunity to speak." When I first heard The (Ronald Mc)Donald ranting against "Mexican rapists," I felt the kind of disgust I would towards anyone who effectively employs such revolting prejudice and pandering. His diatribes are not mindles...

President "Jimmah" Carter: Some thoughts on his presidency, legacy

I was born in 1963, so Jimmy Carter is by far the best president in my political memory. He told the American people what they didn't want to hear - that we needed not only to conserve energy, but develop and utilize alternative, renewable sources of energy. As you may already know, he installed sol...

Re: Waukesha County D.A. Office is more emotionally disturbed than accused "Slender Man" girls

Not yet, and not necessarily in the future, bdog, but as the article states: "Waukesha County Circuit Judge Michael Bohren’s decision to keep the girls in the adult court system has major implications for Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier, who are charged with attempted first-degree intentional ho...

Re: Waukesha County D.A. Office is more emotionally disturbed than accused "Slender Man" girls

A fair enough criticism, I suppose, Dogmeat, "touche'." I'll leave you for now with the thought that a period of incarceration of forty-five years seems excessive, even for a crime this horrific, mainly because it was committed by a couple of delusional girls who were twelve years old at t...

Re: Waukesha County D.A. Office is more emotionally disturbed than accused "Slender Man" girls

Actually, I DO get you. You clearly believe the girls need additional confinement, past the age of 18. But whether or not they remain an obvious danger to the community at that future date remains to be seen. That determination should only be made by actual experts, not by vengeful prosecutors, jade...

Re: Waukesha County D.A. Office is more emotionally disturbed than accused "Slender Man" girls

Yes I am disagreeing with them, and with you. I most definitely disagree with ALL of you, if you actually believe an eleven or thirteen year-old has the same emotional maturity, ethical frame of reference and overall cognitive capacity as an eighteen year-old. And I do so (for the sake of avoiding a...
