bowelhunter - You are so blatantly ignorant rebuking you is unnecessary. Almost everyone can see that.
"secrete top secrete and above top secrete national defense secretes to our enemies". ...
"That is called espionage."
Hillary did not "expose secretes". If someone hacked into her computer email THEY may have exposed information. BUT the emails/computers of the Dept of Defense, Secy Colin Powell, the director of the CIA and other govt officials have also been hacked into. So, on your stupid terms, they were also guilty of espionage.
And I really ought to thank you for providing "secrete top secrete and above top secrete national defense secretes to our enemies". ...That is called illiteracy. If someone with even half a brain wrote that I might think english was their 2nd language. But in your case it's just evidence of idiocy.
You're right about one thing. Donald Trump is smarter than you. Everybody is.
hateliberally - Your high opinion of Bill Clinton is much less widely shared than you think. Certainly the republican base saw and sees him differently. His campaigning for hillary seems to be having little if any positive effect. And as these "villify to victory" campaigns roll out, his denegrating donald will hurt his own image as well. What a mess. Both candidates running for the highest office with the same agenda: the other guy is a bigger, more corrupt jackss than me.
dennygrate - No, I don't agree with you. People blinding themselves to trump's faults are borderline desperate. I don't think either candidate is the answer. And I'm worried about my country's future. Times like these have historically given birth to tyrants and fools.
juan.a.hoe. - You are a certifiable idiot. You think somehow "a witch" magically travelled back in time and had the hawaiian newspapers print his birth notice 50 years ago??? A witch - since you can't find any other way to explain away long existing evidence that you're wrong. Are you posting from a padded cell? And if not, why not? You jump from being a communications clerk to being a CIA operative who called in his mafia operatives from time to time to "do the dirty work." And suggest you could call them in to lean on some retail store your sister didn't like? You are a certifiable idiot. And your ability to type 200 wpm (a skill all CIA operatives must master) only serves to demonstrate your sorry delusive state at great length and repeatedly.
Have a nice day (and don't skip your meds.)
dennygrate - What I don't see is trump re-negotiating trade deals and returning jobs and manufacturing to this country from abroad??? Let me tell you what you don't see.
Your wet-behind-the-ears cubscout version of how simple it will be to set things right is less than foolish. I was never in favor of NAFTA & other trade deals. Perot was dead right about the jobs. And I voted for him. You naively think bringing lost jobs back will be as easy as outsourcing them was. Not! You think China is going to say "Oh, OK Donald' we're sorry, take back the manufacturing that has revolutionized our standard of living and empowered our eonomy.". China has never worked that way with other nations at any time in history. One-way trade deals are in their DNA. They do not play on a level field. Neither does Korea nor Mexico.
So do you bootlessly think (like DT) OK we'll slap a serious tariff on the PCs and i phones and flatscreens to raise their price of goods to what it costs to manufacture here? That will mean US consumers will have to pay 2or 3 times as much for those items, shrinking the domestic market enormously. Meanwhile the huge foxconn class factories willbe selling the lower priced goods to the rest of the world - so US made goods will not be able to compete in all the global markets. And that's just the tip of the not-so-niceberg. The financial chaos and structural nightmare of throwing global logistics into reverse are mindboggling.
Do we have to make some serious far reaching changes to the way it's going. No doubt. Will it be painless? No way. But thinking the simplistic hairbrained carnival barker's Wham-Bam-Fixed! fantasies are workable is nonsense. Nonsense! You are drinking mindless koolaid.
dennygrate. - It's you who should employ the few functioning neurons you have to imagine what donald's debt will be if (as he says) he doubles the size of the military and cuts everyone's taxes. If you have some trouble with that you might want to get some gradeschool kid to help you.
Your heah, heah, heah, is reminiscent of that dimwitted texan puppet who restrained the borderpatrol and opened the floodgates so mexicans could "do the work that americans don't want to do" as he often babbled. Not that he will go down as a president who did nothing. He started a fraudulent war that killed tens of thousands of people and undermined the middleast, and he set the economy on the path to financial collapse. A record so dismal that it would drown jebby's career and probably any other bushies for some time to come. You saw what happened when they exhumed dubbya & mommy to make jebby seem presidential.
You are totally out of touch with reality. Altho in your case, not too surprising.h
correction - dubbya's absolutely fraudulent $5billion surplus excuse (that never existed). Should read ...
dubbya's absolutely fraudulent $5TRILLION surplus (that never existed) excuse to cut taxes
dennygrate. - I haven't bantered with you lately because it's a waste of time trying to talk sense to someone whose rightwing ideology has revised history to fit agenda and blinded him to everything that does not support it. I sometimes call it cheneyism since he was so clearly guilty of it. "It's true if I say it's true," declaring WMD existed when he knew there were none. Establishing his own little intelligence group inthe WH who would say whatever he wanted them to.
That you can maintain that reagan was responsible for the boom years of the nineties. Or completely ignore the gramm/leach/bliley act that opened the floodgates of deregulation and its myriad fraudulent derivatives and blame clinton for signing the bill they were going to pass even if he vetoed it. Or to ignore dubbya's absolutely fraudulent "$5billion surplus" excuse (that never existed) to cut taxes and start a war whose $trillion cost was off-the-books. And somehow ignoring all of that blame obama & clinton for the burgeoning debt...There is no point in discussing problems with someone who makes up all his facts. That's why the bantering stopped.
Your propaganda isn't thinking, it comes right off the rightwing menu; the same revised history and distorted facts repeated over and over.
There's little doubt that hillary is not the solution. Just more mindless PC and kicking the can down thre road. But trump is totally unpredictable. An egomaniacal samson who may very bring the house down on all of us. Please don't think the congress can keep him in check just take a look at all they've accomplished in the past ten years. And how impotent they are in dealing with their own inhouse problems.
The trump lemmings, among whom you seem to number, are desperately seeking any port in a storm.
hateliberally. - It's hard not to wonder at times if this is the end of the American empire we knew. Trump? Clinton. And that burgeoning ship of fools that have set sail for Pennsylvania Avenue since dubbya demonstrated that you didn't need any qualifications to be POTUS: Cain, Hucklebuck, Palin, Bachman, Flimsey Graham, Carson, Snarky Fiorina et al. Scary stuff. And not just potential presidential detritus. Pelosi, Wasserman-Schultz, Jindal, Inhofe..the list ids endless.
And yet I think you have dismissed Bernie for overly meaningless reasons. The man is that rarest of modern politicians - honest. He believes in the constitution to whom others like Cruz, trump, rubio those words are just a phrase they wrap themselves in and wear like a old glory lapel button. He's been in congress for some time and struck deals with hardnosed opposition and he knows he can only get a part of what he proposes BUT he's the only one willing to engage the battle.
He & the donald both oppose the influence of big money in politics, self defeating trade deals, the destruction of the middleclass. Clinton is OK with things as they are ( hey, it's worked for her). But the difference is Clinton abides it, bernie abhors it, and Trump despite what he brays, has always been a part of it and it's served him well. He says money plays too big a role in politics out of one sideof his mouth and brags that he greased (bribed) dozens of politicians to get what he wanted out of the other. It's his MO.
From the beginning DT's appeal has been that he's NONE OF THE ABOVE. But the confused and embittered coalescing behind him really have no idea what the hell he will do if elected. In a sense they're just giving up.
Be careful what you wish for.
hateliberally - "Trump won't debate. ...He knows he isn't as smart as Clinton.".
Nor was he as smart as Cruz or Rubio or Paul or Fiorina but look how that turned out. The issue isn't is he smarter than Clinton but rather is he smarter than the mobs who believe him? Many of whom believe the Clintons murdered scalia and foster and our own govt "staged the World Trade Center attack. And that obama is a foreign born muslim terrorist and that the world is flat.
In the broadest terms using raw numbers to choose an american president is a process of seeking the lowest common denominator. This year it is disturbingly common.
dennygrate - I agree we ought to dump and/or undo 97% of the PC nonsense and get our priorities straight. (Only 1 4syllable word so far. Still with me?). But "a businessman" is a term so broad it incorporates visionaries and dolts alike. A businessman like Bloomberg or Ellison would inspire confidence but there are small armies of "businessmen" who have run going concerns into the ground. It's like saying we need a POTUS whose had military experience (like a former jet pilot) to conduct a successful war in Iraq. We know how that turned out. Our problem is jobs and factories leaving the country? It's the "successful american businessmen" who shipped our jobs & factories overseas in order to make the maximum profit lowering the cost of goods by exploiting cheap third world wages. Admit it, you like Herr Hair because he isn't "highbrow", judges women by their bodies, believes money is the only meaningful metric (OK, that's 2) and thinks a debate is an insultfest. Remember the old chinese saying:
Be careful what you wish for - you may get it.
dennygrate - I used only one uncommon word in my last post and did so because it was a perfect descriptor. And I included an apology for doing so.
In simple terms: Q: are polls inaccurate? A: "Dewey beats Truman", "Cruz will win Indiana."
Q: Is a "businessman" the solution our country's problems? A: Herbert Hoover. Herman Cain.
juannabee - Wow. While I agree that PC mentality and values are a destructive social force 99% of the time, I can't find a shred of humanity, intelligence or christian charity in anything else about you. You must really lament the loss of the #$%$. So people who don't adhere to your version of proper behavior, dress, language, culture are "the dregs of society"? When you were (if you were) in China or indonesia or India or Africa and YOU DIDN'T accept and practice the manners, dress, and social order & customs of those countries, did you accept that you were the dregs because of it? Like I said, the children of the clergy. Small wonder you palm a derringer just to go out and pick up your morning paper.
juannabee - I can't tell you how amused I was to read that you were the child of christian ministers. I grew up with a couple of them and have routinely found them to be the mostscrewed up humanbeings unless you count pyschiatrist's wives who should have a whole volume of the DSM devoted to them alone.
You are a strange and solipsistic* christian who does not believe christianity is a religion (because religions are basedon faith) but believe Christ rose from the dead and ascended into heaven. You define that as a fact? Not an act of faith? Hmmm. I don't suppose you'll answer that because you and rivethead don't read the posts you both miraculously respond to. But on the chance you might, save yourself the trouble.
*sorry about that word gang, but its the descriptor that fits juannabee exactly.
bailey. - It's a little hard to see how market approval for bladder cancer could happen this year. According to the trial design cohort 1 (3pts) will take 9 weeks. 10 if you allow a few days for OR scheduling and the histopathology report. After which comes cohort 2 - another 10 weeks. And even if we allow only a day or two to choose which regimen (1 or 2) to proceed with we have to enroll, treat, excise and analyze another 12 patients, so at least another 10-12 weeks. 7 1/2 or 8 months and it's almost June. At the earliest it looks like early 2017 when (if all goes smoothly & well) we apply for approval. And even that's assuming we apply for market approval based on a Phase1 trial with 14 patients and don't have to field a confirmatory trial with a greater n.
manureexpected. - You thought that the mindless jumble of caps ranting streetmob-level warnings would incite adult discussion? If the answer is yes, you have proved my case. The prosecution rests.
manureexpected. - cybershouting (ALL CAPS) doesn't make stupid statements stronger or more believable. You obviously don't know that. You probably won't believe it. OK, just casting pearls.
speedy - yeah, but... That tsunami did not occur in open water. Rather in a narrow fijord where a 40 million cu yds landslide crashed into water that had no escape out of the fijord. By the time it reached open water it was only ninety feet high and dropping rapidly. Doesn't mean I give much weight or credit to the wiper. Just that the example was not a classic tsunami.
dennygrate. - It's a little strange (on a board where others are endlessly posting how much smarter they are than I am) to read those same geniuses can't understand my posts without the help of a dictionary.
You choose to ignore what you've chosen to ignore - IOW you've dismissed your voluntary blindness to trump's negatives by dismissing the fact that your own bias distorts your perception. For instance:
As to the backfire effect of $100 million attack ads. A little old example: a man visiting his friend in maine awoke one morning to find his host scattering lemon peels & pepper on the lawn. "What're you doing?". He asked. "I do this to keep elephants off the lawn," the friend replied. "But there aren't any elephants within a thousand miles of here," he pointed out. The friend stopped and stood with a surprised look on his face. "Wow!" He said, " I had no idea it worked that well!"
What you missed is that jebby's moano-a-mano campaign revealed the weakness of jebby far more than the strength of the trumpeter.
I don't ever remember a time like this when the most powerful argument each candidate has is how unacceptable the other is.
bailey - I was wondering how recent the information of the Duke trial was. Late in the report they mention 21 patients (8 of whom died) . The trial began in 2012 with a patient quota of 65. It would seem that after 4 1/2 years they would have treated well over half of the 65, especially since results were so good and it was single assignment, open label. Maybe they intend to cut short the original trial number and begin a PII now that they have the breakthrough designation.
