tsk....con man. By their fruits........hehehehehehehehehe
I reckon the media is chompin' at the bits to shred Donald.. this has been my concern all along. I can see through FRAUD and con artists......hmmmmmm No wonder he is pals with the "Blinktons"...they lie with such ease, it is troubling.
"I can change to anything I want to", still rings hallow in my head, along with " I can murder someone, and my supporters will not leave". These must be the "under educated" he says he loves. I reckon because they are EASY to deceive and lie to.....the jig is up, America. We are being conned and bamboozled in broad day light....another "Liar-in-chief", with a muderous twist?.......hehehehehehehehehe
Flop, anyone who believes in and abides by the US Constitution is not an extremist. That being said, you definitely fit the mold of an un-American extremist. Your ignorance and immaturity are so palpable that you really didn't deserve a reply. If you had your way this country would never return to its former status as "leader of the free world." You have nothing to offer so please take a hike. Moscow calls for you.
Fraud, another excellent and informative reply from you. Keep up the good work. You are definitely on a roll. Thank you.
DW, I only wish, America is on a roll with the TRUTH and what lies ahead. Today is SUPER TUESDAY, and the pivot point of America as we know her. The wrong tilt today will cast America into VERY DARK times and perpetual darkness, where there will be "weeping and gnashing of teeth", but I pray for the mercies of GOD.
We are slipping into darkness, amigo, and it is subduing, but I have FAITH and HOPE in GOD, yep, the same one WE TRUST....not the prog hope, aka hopelessness.....hehehehehehehehe. Peace, brother.
Pole, if flop thinks the charges against HRC are unsubstantiated he has his own little private bubble and again his ignorance is palpable. He doesn't like it when I say this but I carried clearances throughout my working career and if I or my colleagues had violated the trust that was placed in us we would have been long gone. You just can't do what she did without suffering the consequences. It would be another blow to our security if politics were used to dismiss the violations she committed. What she did was not an accident. It was willing and purposeful to any intelligent mind. If I believed she was innocent, I would say so. There are forces of evil at work here who are dedicated only to their party and, I hate to say it, but the country be damned.
Richard, flop is drive by his ideology and his complete ignorance. Only an uninformed ideologue would defend TWBoW and that is exactly what flop is.
Noam Chomsky says Trump's rise is partly due to deeply rooted -- and potentially fatal -- feelings of fear and anger.
02/25/2016 | Matt Ferner | The Huffington Post
What's killing white, middle-aged, poorly educated American men? Noam Chomsky suggests it's a sense of hopelessness that may be fueling Donald Trump's popularity.
Noam Chomsky, the renowned scholar and MIT professor emeritus, says that the rise of Donald Trump in American politics is, in part, FUELED BY DEEPLY ROOTED FEAR AND HOPELESSNESS THAT MAY BE CAUSED BY AN ALARMING SPIKE IN MORTALITY RATES FOR A GENERATION OF POORLY EDUCATED WHITES.
“HE’S EVIDENTLY APPEALING TO DEEP FEELINGS OF ANGER, FEAR, FRUSTRATION, HOPELESSNESS, PROBABLY AMONG SECTORS LIKE THOSE THAT ARE SEEING AN INCREASE IN MORTALITY, SOMETHING UNHEARD OF APART FROM WAR AND CATASTROPHE," Chomsky told The Huffington Post in an interview on Thursday.
Trump's rise as the Republican presidential front-runner has been confounding for Americans across the political spectrum. The bombastic, billionaire demagogue has won three of the first four primary states and holds a lead in the polls, both nationwide and in upcoming primary contests. He now appears poised to take an insurmountable delegate lead over the next several weeks, based on a platform of hate and vitriol targeted at women, Latinos, Muslims and other minorities.
A LEGION OF LESS EDUCATED, WORKING-CLASS WHITE MEN HAS FUELED TRUMP’S RISE. AND WHILE MANY SAY THE BUSINESS MOGUL IS CAPITALIZING ON THEIR FEARS ABOUT THE PERCEIVED DECLINE OF WHITE DOMINANCE IN AMERICA, CHOMSKY SAYS THERE MAY ALSO BE MORE EXISTENTIAL FORCES AT PLAY.
LIFE EXPECTANCY, IN GENERAL, HAS INCREASED STEADILY OVER TIME. AND THANKS LARGELY TO ADVANCES IN HEALTH CARE, MANY PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD LIVE LONGER LIVES. THERE ARE EXCEPTIONS, OF COURSE -- DURING WAR OR NATURAL CATASTROPHES, FOR EXAMPLE. BUT WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW IN AMERICA, HE SAYS, IS “QUITE DIFFERENT.”
DESPITE VAST WEALTH AND MODERN MEDICINE, THE U.S. HAS LOWER AVERAGE LIFE EXPECTANCY THAN MANY OTHER NATIONS. AND WHILE THE AVERAGE HAS BEEN INCREASING RECENTLY, THE GAINS ARE NOT EVENLY SPREAD OUT. WEALTHIER AMERICANS ARE LIVING LONGER LIVES, WHILE THE POOR ARE LIVING SHORTER ONES.
POORLY EDUCATED, MIDDLE-AGED AMERICAN WHITE MALES ARE PARTICULARLY AFFECTED, MULTIPLE RECENT STUDIES SUGGEST. While Americans from other age, racial and ethnic groups are living longer lives than ever before, this particularly segment of the population is dying faster.
A STUDY ON THE ISSUE FOUND THAT THE RISING DEATH RATE FOR THIS GROUP IS NOT DUE TO THE AILMENTS THAT COMMONLY KILL SO MANY AMERICANS, LIKE DIABETES AND HEART DISEASE, BUT RATHER BY AN EPIDEMIC OF SUICIDES, LIVER DISEASE CAUSED BY ALCOHOL ABUSE, AND OVERDOSES OF HEROIN AND PRESCRIPTION OPIOIDS.
“No war, no catastrophe," Chomsky says, has caused the spiking mortality rate for this population. "Just the impact of policies over a generation that have left them, it seems, angry, without hope, frustrated, causing self-destructive behavior."
That could well explain Trump’s appeal, he speculated.
In an interview with Alternet this week, Chomsky compared the poverty that many Americans now face with the conditions an older generation confronted during the Great Depression.
“It’s interesting to compare the situation in the ‘30s, which I’m old enough to remember,” he said. “Objectively, poverty and suffering were far greater. But even among poor working people and the unemployed, there was a sense of hope that is lacking now.”
Chomsky attributes some of that Depression-era hope to the growth of an aggressive labor movement and the existence of political organizations outside of the mainstream.
Today, however, he says the mood is quite different for Americans who are deeply affected by poverty.
“[They] are sinking into hopelessness, despair and anger -- not directed so much against the institutions that are the agents of the dissolution of their lives and world, but against those who are even more harshly victimized,” he said. “SIGNS ARE FAMILIAR, AND HERE IT DOES EVOKE SOME MEMORIES OF THE RISE OF EUROPEAN FASCISM.”
CORRECTION: A previous version of this story misstated that a study on rising death rates for middle-aged white Americans received a Nobel Memorial Prize. It was, in fact, one of the authors of the study who won the prize for other work.
Editor's Note: DONALD TRUMP IS A SERIAL LIAR, RAMPANT XENOPHOBE, RACIST, MISOGYNIST, BIRTHER AND BULLY who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims -- 1.6 billion members of an entire religion -- from entering the U.S.
"we have spent about 3 trillion dollars on it and all we have to show for it is more people than ever on welfare. The Great Society was a monumental failure."
Polecatt, we both and millions of fellow Americans are also looking ant the same MONUMENTAL FAILURE of this "great society" experiment......jes like the "great workers paradise", all FAILURES. This crappola has to end in America.
We the people, need a government that will stay out of our ways and let us unlock our GOD given talents and potential to keep America great.
"DECENCY for President" is an article All need to read. It is in the Washington Post. This is what America needs, if we hope to return to the ways that made us great and prosperous. Peace, brother.
As the father of three daughters, I reserved the right to interview their dates. Seemed only fair to me. After all, my wife and I’d spent 16 or 17 years feeding them, dressing them, funding braces, and driving them to volleyball tournaments and piano recitals. A five-minute face-to-face with the guy was a fair expectation. I was entrusting the love of my life to him. For the next few hours, she would be dependent upon his ability to drive a car, avoid the bad crowds, and stay sober. I wanted to know if he could do it. I wanted to know if he was decent.
This was my word: “decent.” Did he behave in a decent manner? Would he treat my daughter with kindness and respect? Could he be trusted to bring her home on time? In his language, actions, and decisions, would he be a decent guy?
Decency mattered to me as a dad.
Decency matters to you. We take note of the person who pays their debts. We appreciate the physician who takes time to listen. When the husband honors his wedding vows, when the teacher makes time for the struggling student, when the employee refuses to gossip about her co-worker, when the losing team congratulates the winning team, we can characterize their behavior with the word decent.
We appreciate decency. We applaud decency. We teach decency. We seek to develop decency. Decency matters, right?
Then why isn’t decency doing better in the presidential race?
The leading Republican candidate to be the next leader of the free world would not pass my decency interview. I’d send him away. I’d tell my daughter to stay home. I wouldn’t entrust her to his care.
I don’t know Mr. Trump. But I’ve been chagrined at his antics. He ridiculed a war hero. He made a mockery of a reporter’s menstrual cycle. He made fun of a disabled reporter. He referred to the former first lady, Barbara Bush as “mommy,” and belittled Jeb Bush for bringing her on the campaign trail. He routinely calls people “stupid,” and “dummy.”1 One writer catalogued sixty-four occasions that he called someone “loser.”2 These were not off-line, backstage, overheard, not-to-be-repeated comments. They were publicly and intentionally tweeted, recorded, and presented.
Such insensitivities wouldn’t be acceptable even for a middle school student body election. But for the Oval Office? And to do so while brandishing a Bible and boasting of his Christian faith?
I have no inside track on the intricacies of a presidential campaign. I’m a pastor. I don’t endorse candidates or place bumper stickers on my car. But I am protective of the Christian faith. If a public personality calls on Christ one day and calls someone a “bimbo” the next, is something not awry? And to do so, not once, but repeatedly? Unrepentantly? Unapologetically? Can we not expect a tone that would set a good example for our children? We stand against bullying in schools. Shouldn’t we do the same in presidential politics?
Could concerns not be raised about other Christian candidates? Absolutely. But the concern of this article is not policy, but tone and decorum. When it comes to language, Mr. Trump is in a league of his own. “It is out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks,” Jesus said.3 Let speech befit the call. We, as Christians, would do well to summon any Christian leader to a higher standard. This includes pastors (especially this one), teachers, coaches and, by all means, presidential candidates.
All of them.
The stock explanation for Mr. Trump’s success is this: he has tapped into the anger of the American people. As one man said, “We are voting with our middle finger.” Sounds more like a comment for a gang-fight than a presidential election. Anger-fueled reactions have caused trouble ever since Cain was angry at Abel.
We can only hope, and pray, for a return to verbal decency. Perhaps Mr. Trump will better manage his comments. (Worthy of a prayer, for sure.) Or, perhaps the American public will remember the key role of the president: to be the face of America. When he/she speaks, he/she speaks for us. Whether we agree or disagree with the policies of the president, do we not hope that they speak in a way that is consistent with the status of the office?
As far as I remember, I never turned away one of my daughter’s dates. They weren’t perfect, but they were decent fellows. That was all I could ask.
It seems that we should ask the same.

One major problem with Trump being so bad is that the other leading candidates Cruz and Rubio are no better.
Donald Drumpf claims to be a prsbytarian, when will the prsbytarians claim him?.......hehehehehehehehehehehe The media are already calling this guy a serial Liar . TRUTH is powerful, ya see, and will always TRUMP lies and liars alike....hehehehehehehehe
This is jes the beginning folks. Give progs a big hand, the are VERY good at deception and deceiving the weak mind.
Decency will cause you to manufacture ya little red hats in America, if ya want "to make America great again", (words which were FIRST uttered by Ronald Regan on Jersey Shores), instead of China....where is the decency of creating jobs for the very same America ya want to make great again?...tsk, serial liar and serial plagiarizer.....hehehehehehehehehehe
fraud, three things:
1. "The media are already calling this guy a serial Liar ." The press is in the tank for the socialist party and will trash all conservative candidates. So I don't believe anything the press says.
2. I am not emotionally attached to any politician. In my view almost all are low lifes.
If Trump is the GOP candidate, I will vote for him because anybody, a cigar store Indian, will be better than TWBotW. I hope you feel the same because every vote counts to defeat a real evil - TWBotW.
I agree with you about the media, however the low info, handout zombies the created over the years are the ones I am concerned the media will drive to the polls to get ya TWBotW into the WH, by opening "Drumpf's" pandora box.
I am not emotionally attached to any political Ideology, but I am a person of FAITH, and if I have learned anything from the WORD, is holding onto what is TRUE, not to bow to any FALSE doctrine or exogenous pressures, and to speak boldly of the TRUTH.
I have my doubts about the GOP. As an independent conservative American, they used to talk a game closest to my ideals and beliefs, but it is crystal the had been hiding the fact that they have evolved to something foreign and contrary to who I am. That said, I will vote for COUNTRY, and not for revenge, party or anything short of TRUTH and decency.....peace, brother
Trump says he didn't hear the question very well, because of A bad ear piece?....really?
I wonder what other story or excuse will America be served next. A pattern is established for "I can change to anything I chose"...it is cause for concern....hehehehehehehehe
