Awesome day today!!!!
Posted: 1/21/2017 9:51:37 AM
"it stopped being great, when 1/2 the voters..." that's part of the problem. One half of one half of the population (1/4) actually voted him in. Today people are taking to the streets, whereas they should have taken to the streets prior to the election and actually VOTED in the first place. Don't become complacent prior to an election. It's far easier to vote than suffering the effects of complacency for four years.

Fake News is the point - its the new truth

Today's Fact Check: http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/politics/fact-check-trump-starts-on-familiar-note-with-exaggeration/ar-AAm4HGw?li=AAggNb9&ocid=u143dhp

Three Fake Newsies for Trump in just that speech today - at least he's a consistent faker. Eventually he'll be known to his followers as "The Clown Who Cried Wolf" once they can start using logic (hmmmm...not sure that's likely, given the disconnect to date).

Ya know, it's just as well Trump doesn't like conventional media. It may just make them mad enough to report on the discrepancies more consistently, rather than just reporting the consistent crap that comes out of Trump's mouth without calling him on it in a verifiable manner.

Dee: What you and his supporters don't seem to be able to wrap your heads around is the damage that can be done in a closing the barn door after the horse has fled sort of way. You/they, think they have it bad now...you likely haven't seen nuthin' yet. As per the following link: “If we were [sic] wait for all the ill effects that could come from this, too much damage to our democracy would occur,” said Ron Fein, legal director at Free Speech for People. “It will undermine faith in basic institutions. [...]" http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/politics/the-campaign-to-impeach-president-trump-has-begun/ar-AAm4cxo?li=AAggNb9&ocid=u143dhp

It's not always just a matter of "don't like it, vote him out", particularly when dealing with other world leaders via inflammatory tweets. As I said, giving Trump "a chance" is like giving North Korea "a chance" to see if they can send a missile that will reach the U.S. coast. At least there are those actively looking for ways to legitimately impeach the now Clown in Chief.

^^ yeah...wait for him to start taking credit for the companies that had decided to reshore two and three years ago...

It wasn't a "bumbling" speech, being that it was read off of a teleprompter...it was simply the usual rhetoric at a venue that didn't warrant it. He had the usual type of crowd that any inauguration gets, but the tepid crowd response was pretty telling.

That was the most pathetic speech I've ever heard an in-coming President make. You'd think the man was still on the campaign trail. Ringling Bros. had to go out of business because of the huge circus this clown, his party and supporters have created. For those saying he should be given a chance, that's tantamount to saying that North Korea should be given a chance to create a ballistic missile that will reach the shores of the U.S. This whole clown act would "almost" be funny if the ramifications stayed only within U.S. borders in a reap what you sough sort of way. Unfortunately, that's not the case.

Will President Elect Donald Trump Last The Full 4 Years?
Posted: 1/16/2017 2:11:17 PM
I think you're right on track, Cotter, that they never planned on him being president at all, never mind for the full 4 years. How he got to this point was that he was simply a vehicle based on the following he attracted and the GOP planned on riding on his coat tails, either thinking they could use him as their puppet and rein him in (good luck with that) or that he'd bow out to go back to running his businesses because he knows he's woefully underqualified, no matter who he surrounds himself with to "advise" him. He holds much stock in his daughter's advice but, clearly, she's not doing a very good job to this point and after the inauguration I can't see her having any more sway with him than she has to date. If she knows her father so well, she should have known he didn't have the ability to be a politician in any capacity, never mind president, and should have dissuaded him from running in the first place. So far he's flaming the fires with China, Germany, N. Korea, Mexico and his own country, et al...and is the puppet of Russia for whatever gawd awful reason - and it probably IS gawd awful.

I think Scotland has it pretty much right: http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/politics/scottish-tv-listing-dubs-trump-inauguration-nightmarish-twilight-zone-episode/ar-AAlTSxp?li=AAggFp5&ocid=u143dhp

wow, my name in headlines!
Posted: 1/11/2017 12:48:06 PM
While I disagree that others are having a difficult time processing and accepting the election results, being that it's a foregone conclusion that the fool will be president for however long that may be, I do agree that people who wish to make change do need to contribute to that change instead of, for instance, not voting at all. It's sad when you have approximately 25% of the population of a nation being able to vote in an incompetent, bumbling idiot (at least when it comes to politics - it's obvious he's been able to "make business deals" because of his ability to baffle with bullshit when dealing with others of the same greed mentality). Sadder still is that the majority of that 25% voted based on rhetoric that was largely hollow and false and that they didn't and still don't have the ability to discern it. Disgusting is the GOP who went along with the dog and pony show in order to preserve their seats, rather than being concerned about the discord he has and will continue to cause, instead of disassociating with him when they could have.

Wishing for peace and contentment is a nice, flowery, inane, kind of pageant queen contestant statement when not only the US but the world is faced with the ramifications created by the soon to be Commander-In-Tweet's ability to enflame nations and peoples that have the ability to literally blow part of your own citizens off the face of the earth caused by off the cuff, spontaneous, incredibly ill thought out (read stupid) 140 characters or less comments. But hey, he's not even to blame for that...we've been advised that we shouldn't listen to his words but to read his heart. What a f'ing joke!

Autism/Aspergers doesn't exist.
Posted: 1/10/2017 1:07:51 PM
Wow, some people are more concerned with labels (putting them on people) than they are with taking the time to actually do their research on a topic before they put their fingers to the keyboard. There is a spectrum to the malady in the same way that cancer has a spectrum. Not all cancers present the same, nor does all autism present the same. If a person has stage one cancer, does that mean they don't have it unless it's stage four? Is the treatment the same for one as it is for four? I'm sure there are misdiagnoses of cancer, just as there are for autism. The point is that both are very real maladies that cause much grief for both the individual affected and their families.

The bigger concern isn't the labeling or the small percentage of misdiagnosis. What is alarming is the fact that there are so many legitimately diagnosed. It seems the prevalence is increasing, which makes the cause just as important, if not more so, than any possible small percentage of misdiagnosis.

What is your prediction for next 4 years?
Posted: 12/30/2016 3:32:41 PM
Obama was likely in a catch-22 situation re the Russian hacking. Perhaps no sanctions were brought against Russia until this week because prior to the election, there wasn't the preponderance of proof that has since come to light more recently. He's getting the "why didn't you say/do something earlier and why are you doing it now", with each scenario drawing derision just because it would be him doing it with the belief it has something to do with Trump.

What I find odd is that Trumpsters don't understand that the release of certain specific information could have further ramifications they couldn't hope to realize or understand and yet they demand to have the information released to them as proof the hack was Russian based. Even more astounding is that apparently Trump, the person who should be as knowledgeable on the topic as possible, isn't privy to the intelligence information himself, self-admittedly waiting until next week to go to actual briefings on the matter to get to the heart of the matter - he should already be at that point. Perhaps he has been briefed but still refuses to believe it of his ego stroking Russian friend, or he simply is too dense to understand what he's briefed about. Fooliani has suggested Trump hire his own intelligence team. I can see it now...he'd put together a team from Russia because they're good at hacking and "finding computer stuff out"...

Trump still doesn't realize, because of his inflated ego, that the issue post-election doesn't have anything to do with the results and no one is out to overturn them. It's a matter of not allowing Putin to get away with blatant interference (or any other country for that matter). One has to wonder if it was Kim Jong Un who was behind the hack, or if it was Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi who was behind the hack, if Trump and his supporters would be as nonchalant about it as they seem to be right now. It's funny how ego stroking Trump and, by proxy his equally feeble minded minions, can sway their thought processes. It's literally like watching deer caught at night in the shine of headlights, with the potential for equally disastrous results in one form or another. This time it was tampering with and leaking political party information which may or may not have swayed election results - one will never know. Would this same nonchalance be the reaction if it disrupted your banking system in a major way or electrical grid, particularly in the middle of a cold snap? Would Trump and his followers still put their collective heads in the sand and make like they graduated from the Kelly Ann Conway School of Spin Doctoring?

The first "red flag" is his use of insult to dismiss anyone who disagrees with his opinion. Using insults like "trumpets" and "chump" are just plain childish and render his posts unworthy of serious consideration.


That's kind of my thought process when it comes to Trump...but beyond his goofy name calling which is juvenile when it comes to the seriousness of the position (which is far different than forum posting here), it's his bumbling attempts to be a serious leader and the stupidity that he displays on a daily basis that was the most logical reason making him unworthy of serious consideration in the first place by logical individuals (those who voted against him). It is that which will be the reason why he won't last for four years. The method of his demise from the position has a few possibilities.

Vote recount? challenge results? Now that would be a mess
Posted: 11/29/2016 12:28:41 PM

Hmm, haven't read anything this nasty and dumb in awhile.

It does seem to go with the territory, doesn't it? Unfortunately, I suppose that's what happens when roughly 30% of the population votes in an equally nasty and dumb president simply because of poor voter turnout by those who could have made a difference by actually voting. So, again unfortunately, not only do the gullible/not too bright Trump followers get what they voted for, the complacent/apathetic remainder who didn't vote at all, or spoiled votes, get what they didn't vote for and really have no reason to complain. The most unfortunate aspect of it all is that the rest of the world has to live with the ramifications of the above because, due to a largely arrogant attitude in the States, their voting decisions are none of anyone else's business.

That's going to cost the taxpayers plenty. The president-turd back and forth from Washington to NYC, in addition to costing an arm and a leg, is going to cause plenty of traffic problems in both Washington and NYC.

So far, they're thinking the Secret Service is going to be 400 individuals, that the Secret Service will be renting space at Trump Tower, with such rent being paid to the Trump Corporation. It just gets better and better (read crazier), doesn't it?

Yanno sometimes this thread does sound anti-American. Having an opinion is one thing...

You don't have to be from the States to be anti-stupidity. What so many from the States tend to forget about is that, as a powerhouse nation, your governmental choices DO have an affect on the rest of the world and, although we don't have the ability to have a say in your vote, we certainly have every right to voice our opinions and deep concerns, no matter where we're from. So many problems within your own borders and yet so conceited. That's not an anti-American statement - simply reality.

Posted: 11/23/2016 10:14:39 AM

I do think it's crazy talk for liberals to be disappointed Trump isn't going to follow through on actions that he said he would do but in reality were illegal, stupid and dangerous.

It's not a case of liberals being "disappointed" Trump isn't going to follow through. It's a case of any individual with a modicum of decency and intelligence pointing out that his followers voted for him based on those actions that would have been illegal, stupid and dangerous - which, in turn, points out that a large portion of his followers are uneducated when it comes to legalities or are of an illegal bent themselves, are either stupid or deliberately obtuse (as evidenced by some Trump supporters here), and many of them are, in fact, dangerous, as is being proven by the sudden rise in hate crimes. They believe Trump has given them license to display their heretofore barely latent repugnant selves. <--This does leave a lot for liberals and/or decent people to complain about.

"""""" - he has proven he doesn't have an understanding of so many things faced by the average citizen, it's disgusting."""""""
How did he prove that?

Seriously? You must already be living under that SNL bubble. Average citizens include Muslims, blacks, Mexicans, disabled, women, unemployed, etc. He's so not in touch with their lives and what they are faced with before he even opens his mouth and makes their situations worse by inciting his followers to crawl out from under their rocks and act like the cretins they are.


See, you are wrong again. Who is a homophobe? How did you come to that conclusion?
Disagreement is not hatred or fear. Start from that reality.

Difficult to be wrong "again" when not wrong in the first place. You obviously don't hear his and his accomplices views while living in that bubble of yours with respect to marriage equality, for one, nor the fact that his pick of decided homophobes is just fine by him. Look up conversion therapy and you'll likely see his running mate's name pop up with it. You, Trump, Pence, Bannon - the list goes on - all homophobic. Speaking of reality, homophobia can include hatred and fear but it also includes discrimination. Soon you're not going to be able to pay for all those bananas you're going to have to buy.

No envy here of anyone's wealth. That a person happens to be a "wealthy" idiot who uses wealth to play with lives of people to satisfy ego is the issue, not his money.

I have to agree with rockstartrucker. His example is no different than men who spend every penny they have on flashy cars, clothing, and taking women to places they can ill afford while living in an empty apartment and then crying foul when they are chased by gold digging females, and then say, "That's all women are out for". There's more chance of being hit on the way a hooker would be if that's the way you present. This isn't saying that it gives a man a right to be a dangerous pig (hooker or not), but it does tend to be an enticement to those with that mentality - kind of like rat bait to a rat.

I understand what you are saying but do you have to be homosexual to promote homosexual rights or a woman to promote equal pay?

Nice try but no banana for you. To promote homosexual rights and to promote equal pay, you have to have an understanding of what is faced by those you are attempting to promote the rights of - he has proven he doesn't have an understanding of so many things faced by the average citizen, it's disgusting.

With respect to Maleman's comment about wages, on minimum wage, Trump has flip-flopped any number of times to this point - first with a $10 minimum wage, then that it should be governed state by state, then it should be a federal $10 minimum wage....and so on and so on. He doesn't have a clue when it comes to being able to relate to being in the category of earning minimum wage or even $100,000 per year wages, never mind what governmental bodies control minimum wages and how much would be equitable for a person to live on outside of a grossly gilt laden tower.

It's funny that you even chose to bring up homosexual rights as an example, being that he's chosen to surround himself with homophobes such as yourself, which would indicate he can't relate to that portion of the population any more than you can. Let's make that two "no bananas" for you.

Like all the Jews who changed their name to Brown? So what? Just another logical fallacy of leftists.

I don't see where anyone was making a "logical fallacy"...just a simple comment that someone did note that Trump's lineage had a name change. It seems it's you who is trying to jump all over something that isn't there.


And it shows true desperation, something to hold on to. You know, your candidate lost. It is not the end of your world.

When will "you people" begin to understand that it's not about Hillary not winning but it's all about an idiot who did win. That it happened to be accomplished by many individuals that don't have enough brain cells to see all that is wrong about it/him/who he is choosing and the ramifications is the astounding part.


See, people who supported Trump know that politicians are not perfect. They are also prepared to call him on his breaking election spouted policy positions.

With all his promises to them already being broken before he's even in office, should we mark our calendars as to when they'll start taking to the street in protest of what they should have seen coming? Nah - I can't see them being able to even understand the game that's been played on them and will continued to be played on them. The usual excuses will be made for him as were made during his whole campaign.


He isn't even in office yet and you people are spit leaking for something on which to hold on to prove yourselves right. Trump supporters have things besides politics to make themselves feel good about themselves. The world won't end.

It's more a case of pointing out that a wealthy redneck charlatan appealed to an equally redneck following who already didn't feel good about their lot in life and were looking for a saviour to make their lives better. They didn't feel good about themselves to begin with and it won't be long before they start feeling even worse when it sinks in they've been duped and they won't be getting what they thought they were promised.

As for lessons being taught, one first has to have the ability to teach. The word derp comes to mind once again.

What's with Trump having his daughter, and whomever else, sitting in on government meetings, like when meeting the prime minister of Japan recently? Is that going to become a regular occurrence when Trump officially takes over?

...because he needs someone who understands (to some degree) what he does and doesn't know and why and why not things will work (according to her/them) and to be his interpreter, aka "Dad, this is what they said, this is what is meant by it and, Dad, you forgot to wear socks and have a bath today." - you see where this is going... I'm thinking they have recognized signs of dementia but want to help him fulfill his last wish to be CEO of the country before it gets too bad, and then use it as a platform to try to worm their way into running for whatever themselves down the road - self-serving family that they are.

Muslim in America
Posted: 11/14/2016 11:22:33 AM
You may want to consider moving to Canada. I'm not going to say there aren't redneck attitudes here as well but, overall, we seem to be far more accepting of other religions and races, particularly if you have something to offer as a skill set and are willing to go through our vetting system. We have a higher percentage Muslim population than the States does, with Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal having the highest percentage of Muslim population. Each of those centres have similar type of lifestyles as New York.


According to Canada's 2011 National Household Survey, there were 1,053,945 Muslims in Canada or about 3.2% of the population, making them the second largest religion after Christianity. In the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), 7.7% of the population is Muslim, and in Greater Montreal, Muslims are 6% of the total population.

when was america great??
Posted: 11/11/2016 4:15:36 PM
Financially, it's probably as great as it ever was, which means there have always been problems to be faced, one of the biggest having been the start of income tax (3%) initially to pay for the civil war and then increasing thereafter, brought on by more wars (and the current war machine the U.S. is) and an ever growing population which required more taxes.

It's probably also been as great as it ever was (read not great at all) when it comes to bigotry, racism, misogyny, elitism, and a certain arrogance. Any one of them are either brought about by fear of someone or cause fear in someone. It's like the more things change, the more they stay the same. Your country is more in turmoil at the moment because of fear, which was what allowed Hitler to gather his followers. Germany felt weak and vulnerable to invasion and at this point in history, U.S. citizens feel vulnerable and weak when it comes to terrorism and are looking at someone to blame, which is turning out to be their own citizens more than terrorism. Add that to the fear caused by the existing and recently promoted bigotry, racism, misogyny, elitism, etc., and from the outside looking in, it's definitely not as great as it should be, never mind was or could be. Trump's recent influence over the past 18 months has gone a long way to promote, by constant repetition and acceptance by not shutting it down when it should have been, that which is not great about your country. You have no chance of being "great" unless and until steps are taken to not promote such tolerance of the "isms".

I wonder if this was like it was during the fall of the Roman Empire...

Trump for President
Posted: 11/11/2016 12:46:06 PM
Cracks are starting to form in Trump's "promises" to his supporters. An interview with the Wall Street Journal today has him now stating he will keep "parts" of Obamacare - so much for repeal and replace in it's entirety. We will start seeing all kinds of other things he spouted off to the masses who buy into illogical promises and they may yet be taking to the streets along with those already protesting.

Another interesting article:


At the end of our September conversation, Lichtman made another call: That if elected, Trump would eventually be impeached by a Republican Congress that would prefer a President Mike Pence — someone who establishment Republicans know and trust.

“I'm going to make another prediction,” he said. “This one is not based on a system, it's just my gut. They don't want Trump as president, because they can't control him. He's unpredictable. They'd love to have Pence — an absolutely down the line, conservative, controllable Republican. And I'm quite certain Trump will give someone grounds for impeachment, either by doing something that endangers national security or because it helps his pocketbook.”

Posted: 11/9/2016 1:05:16 PM

well the crowd can turn on you in a blink of an eye,,how will he handle that??? ...


Yes, we shall see how they react when, in the first 100 days, the following doesn't come to fruition, as "promised" with a [bigly] "believe me" that followed:
-removing "more than two million criminal illegal immigrants from the country;"
-canceling "every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum, and order issued by President Obama;"
-suspending immigration "from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur;"
-repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act;
-allowing the Keystone XL pipeline to move forward;
-lifting restrictions on fossil fuel production;
-selecting a Supreme Court nominee in the mold of the late Justice Antonin Scalia;
-canceling "billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs;"
-establishing "a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated;"
-ending federal funding for sanctuary cities.

...to name but a few of his "promises"...

President Elect Trump

I guess I better stop criticizing him, since one of the things he wants to do as president is have tighter controls and more government monitoring of the internet, so that anybody who says anything bad about him could have the law knocking on their door.

Don't ever stop the criticizing when it's warranted - that's how bullies thrive - by people not challenging them.

President Elect Trump

The real joke on the people who voted the jester in is that they figure they were voting against the establishment. The jester is so inept when it comes to understanding how his own government works, how the world works and how much of that world impacts the U.S. internally, it's still going to be the establishment running the show - just under a different party name. It's one thing to have advisors that a president turns to, however, Trump, because of his ineptitude, lack of world political knowledge, inability to articulate effectively, and belief that running a country is the same as running a private business, will be the puppet being maneuvered by the hand beneath it. Instead of the Apprentice, it's more like the Gong Show has been resurrected. How a country that has such a high percentage of its citizens feeling both scared and concerned about him at the helm of their country and yet vote him in speaks to a cognitive dissonance, the result of which is likely cutting your noses off to spite your faces.

Perhaps the people who voted for Trump should start relying on themselves more to make their lives better instead of depending so entirely on a government to do it for them - getting a complete education for many of them would be a good start. The world isn't what it used to be when people made a living by working in factories and coal mines. Take some initiative. Instead of being so angry at the "establishment", be a little introspective to see what really is making your lives as bad as you believe they are and so readily blaming the establishment and other races and cultures.

After every U.S. election our Immigration website has a lot of action, however, last night it was so much so that it caused it to crash. At least there's some comfort in knowing it's not the Trump supporters looking to move here.

"""""""But its obvious now that this has dampened Trumps rising momentum"""""
And that was the whole point of the plan that I predicted on 10/30/16.
Appear to prosecute her for the "new" email and then TWO DAYS BEFORE THE ELECTION announce that there is nothing there so that she can appear the wronged victim. Voila. President.
Not shocking, not unexpected.


Oh puleeeeze...that's as asinine as saying that Trump staged the whole "gun" incident at his rally over the weekend in order to make like he was the conquering hero that got back up on stage two minutes after an "assassination" attempt so he could have the crowd roaring after he said nothing would stop their collective (bowel) movement. Deplorable's conspiracy theories certainly know no bounds!.

Do you have to spam every Trump/Hilary thread with this?

Nope, but it's obvious it cluttered your brain by doing so a whole two times for different reasons.

vvvv Yup, I see the same kind of pattern emerging. I'll cease and desist...or at the very least resist, or it might wind up digressing to a "you started it first" type of whine by a usual suspect.

Will Trump be the biggest loser? What's next?

I'm not going to type or post the whole thing again....You can find it, here..Post # 517....


You assume it meant anything the first time it was posted. Thanks for not regurgitating yet again.

Edit to add:
This type of verbalization is what gives your country such a bad name the world over -->
What you want doesn't matter, as you don't live here...
If you figure that backwoods militia idiots who openly state they plan on using their guns in a revolutionary manner because they don't have the intelligence to understand the difference between amending a law and abolishing it because rational individuals want a more civilized society by keeping your precious guns out of the wrong hands, such as those idiots, I suppose you reap what you sough. I'm glad I don't live there.

Re 148 - Granted, you are going to have rabble rousers of the unintelligent calibre on both sides with much unsubstantiated blatherings and actions from both...stupid is as stupid does. The culprit tied to the fire bombing hasn't been found yet so that ties into the unsubstantied blathering category. Tie in with the quoted article the number of backwoods "militia men/women" because of the, again unfounded, fear of having their present day "muskets" taken away from them and there's bound to be mayhem in your streets, or someone's streets, perpetrated because of not just Trump's ridiculous rally rants but also because of a large portion of other Republican members and supporters as indicated in the cited link.

I didn’t think any rational person would consider voting for Tic Tac Trump, after he said “he could stand in the middle of fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and not lose votes”. I guess I was wrong. People are so enamored with reality TV, that for them, this election is like watching a combination of the Kim Kartrashian Klan with the Jerry Springer Show.


Speaking of "shooting someone" and irrational people, here's yet another appalling example of the type of phobia laden, red neck, unintelligent, "well armed militia" that slathers Trump with adoration. Seems he's awoken something akin to a virus:

Oh, I read your post alright. Perhaps you should practice a little introspection to determine if you're really offended or if perhaps you're actually experiencing self-loathing.

Fallen womanhood and the self-loathing that comes with it has done more damage to females than some perceived culture of misogyny.

So, you, Trump, and men like you, are misogynists because of fallen/promiscuous women and their self-loathing - that's how it works? How dare women be promiscuous with promiscuous men and demand the same rights!

Since civilizations were formed, there have been any number of problems that have afflicted humans.

How profound!


The nature of sin precludes that which would allow us to approach anything resembling a utopia.

My comment wasn't suggesting utopia, just the disappearance of (or just less) misogyny and the best person for a job, whether it's POTUS or dishwasher, man or woman. As for sin, I'd prefer to use the term human nature and knowing the difference between right and wrong inherently without using the religious reference of "sin", being that religion is too often used as a reason/excuse for keeping people "in their place".


Throwing out the misogyny card shows a blatant lack of respect for men in general and points towards self pity.

Get a grip. The fact that there is misogyny in this day and age has nothing to do with respect or lack thereof for men but has everything to do with a blatant and unjustified lack of respect by a certain segment of men towards women. Case in point: Trump. The fact self pity was used by you in this regard shows a decided lack of understanding about misogyny and is, in itself, rather misogynist, as are the rest of your comments that don't even warrant further response for that very reason. Your lack of knowledge between right and wrong is clearly evident.

Advanced polls also showed that Brexit wasn't going to happen. No one really knows until election day, but Clinton will probably win. The novelty of the first female president also gives her a boost.

While I agree that no one knows until election day and can only hope that Clinton will win, I disagree that being the first female president is what's giving her a boost in any meaningful way at all. After all, she ran before and was a woman at that time. It has much more to do with who she's running against and that there are people stupid enough to not vote for her because of such things as not liking her pantsuits but vote for Trump because they liked him on the Apparentice and tells it like it is when they can't tell what "it" is. It sure would be nice if misogyny would disappear from the face of the earth and that the best person for a job - any job - was placed in it, with no concern or need to comment on gender.

I find it disturbing how Tic Tac Trump followers believe the guy who lost a billion dollar in one year, refuse to release his taxes, and lies 20 to 37 times per day can handle our nation finances.


And if this is true http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/politics/trumps-missing-emails/ar-AAjEwtF?li=AAggNb9&ocid=u143dhp his lying and deception has a very long standing history - the way he spills them out so easily isn't something that just came about because of an election - it's his way of life and likely has been since he was a kid. There must be a picture of him in the dictionary beside the word "trumped-up".

Not quite. More like the sweet taste of hope. At least that is what Twitter seems to be all a flutter about at the moment. :)


Odd that one would "hope" for a security breach that could possibly impact their country, just for the sake of upping the chances of an incompetent getting more votes in a default sort of way. Then again, that's pretty much how Trump's managed to get to where he is - by default through the negligence of the Republican party early on to act on their non-confidence of the clown who would be king.

not expecting them to be shrinking violets in these situations. Because, they roar after all now, don't they?


This has less to do with women being "shrinking violets" in such situations as it does calling the guy out for being the lying pig he is today. There has been no legal action taken against him (yet), so where is the cold-digging coming into play? The majority of women who have been subject to his unwanted sexual bumblings are simply confirming he lies about lying about lying, as is so readily apparent by fact checks showing the incredible frequency of same. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/lists/people/comparing-hillary-clinton-donald-trump-truth-o-met/
