I have listened to this man say many things and he simply pulls them out of the air. He is about as accurate as the 8 ball that answers your questions with "yes', "no," and "maybe," plus he is not a politician. He has a thin skin and takes so many things personally.
Recently he has an ongoing "feud" with the Khan family who's son was killed in the military. Despite his attacks on Mrs. Khan, a local businessman told me that investigations show the senior Khan believes in Sharia law so this means he wants to kill us, and he is our enemy. I didn't even check into the allegations of the businessman, but nonsense like this is what you get from Trump supporters. Even if this was true, does it justify what Trump did?
Trump appears to have renewed his "feud" with Megyn Kelly. It's not so much that there is some issue on what any of this is all about, it's the pettiness of it all. We are expected to hand over nuke codes and other sensitive information to a man who acts worse than a spoiled teenager. Are we insane?
Trump will make the Mexicans pay for the wall, and he will also load up the illegals on buses and send them back to Mexico. Ignorant people cheer while we assume due process will be ignored. Hello, Hitler.
Back to my businessman friend again on the national debt. He assumes that Obama did something here and we have to deal with this debt. Obama did nothing. The national debt comes from policies of the previous 8 years with Bush politics and things approved by Congress, but going into practice as law later. Even so, what could Trump do about that? Is he going to give you some of his billions?
"They say, I'm told, I'm hearing, we can figure that out when the time comes," and all the other "yes, no, maybe" of Mr. Trump is not appealing to me. When people say all of his family likes him, even ex-wives, I have to claim they know where the money comes from.
At what stage of this game will Mr. Trump possibly decide to just pull up his pants and go home? When will he decide to quit because the public did not react properly? Will he have or cause "nuke feuds" with others? This man is much more scary than Barry Goldwater ever was.
Any thoughts on this?
I believe that's correct, but the message was somewhat blurred by placing its delivery in the hands of Trump, where it could easily be viewed as xenophobia.
I would make no wagers on that one, Adam. Frankly, based on his past performance, I could throw Drumpf further than I would EVER trust him.
Watch him like a hawk.
If I might for just one moment praise Donald with faint damnation, our one hope is that he really doesn't give a shit about anything except the Donald. He don't need no stinkin' conservative principles.
Yet another superb editorial by Mr. Pierce
Hillary Clinton Was More Qualified. Donald Trump Was the Better Candidate.
She has weaknesses. He exploited them.
She gave a great speech, powerful and graceful and leavened with enough obvious pain to belie (once again) the cartoon that too many people in this business have made of her.
. . . She was smart and careful, full of nine-point plans and ideas, and she was a woman. He was ignorant and reckless, full of vague promises and wild threats, and he was a man, a faux alpha-male appealing to various alpha-male wannabes.
. . .
And thus ends a long and honorable career in public service. But it does not end HRC's public life. She is going to be investigated by Congress because the Republicans there are going to feel empowered to do so and they are going to need a diversion to prove to the new crowd in the White House that they are with the program. Trying to put HRC in jail is going to be the ultimate loyalty oath.
Failing that, and with the cooperation of an elite political media that just can't resist the prospect, the campaign to demolish her reputation will run on a parallel track to the campaign to erase the legacy of the president who was defeated on Tuesday night as surely as she was. Ugliness is going to be the ultimate loyalty oath.
Well, we're stuck with him now.
So We'll Go No More a Roving
So, we'll go no more a roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart be still as loving,
And the moon be still as bright.
For the sword outwears its sheath,
And the soul wears out the breast,
And the heart must pause to breathe,
And love itself have rest.
Though the night was made for loving,
And the day returns too soon,
Yet we'll go no more a roving
By the light of the moon.
I'm finding in Quora posts that the Donald might have learned things from Obama when they met. Maybe things like:
Your day is from 6 AM to 9 PM
You have to read up on everything daily and might be done by 9 AM if you are a fast reader
You cannot fire anybody in Senate, Congress, or Supreme Court and you also do not hire them
You cannot just make a law and you cannot just resend a law
The list goes on and on but simply you cannot just say how it's going to be and that will become the way it is. There is a process for everything and everybody will not agree with you. This will be a lot of fun because Trump reportedly hates to read and a slow reader will have to read about 4 hours each morning. A fast reader is done by 9 AM. If Trump cannot keep up with this he will not even know what is going on.
