RE: I would not call me wanting to protect my “kind” racist. I would not use that word.
wanting to protect your kind? How do you define what your kind is?
Members of the same family/tribe?
Members of the same religion or philosophy?
The same nation?
People who look like you?
….. By what means are people added to your “kind” or kicked out?
These are key questions that are rarely asked. Hot button words/terms are a much faster and more emotional a way to be misunderstood.

Experiment if you dare:
Try saying that
“to be black is to be ____ ” and fill in the blank with something- anything negative.
Repeat it as if it was a fact, over and over.
See how long it takes to be burned at the stake: criticised, intimidated, and possibly fired…
Do the same thing but substitute white for black. Is the response equivalent?
By the evidence, it is whites who are being systematically discriminated against.
It’s OK to accuse an entire race of people of being mean or bad – but only if they are white.
Where is our White Pride day, White History month, etc. ? (crickets…)

He got bad press and censured by congress… naughty naughty, slap on wrist.
He was not Impeached (removed from power) though there was an attempt to do so. If all rapists etc got off that light, what a world we would live in!

“White Privilege” survey sounds a lot like a witch trial where if she floats, she’s a witch…if she drowns maybe they made a mistake.

I have one complaint – the BS about “paying back” as if he took something that wasn’t his and decided to give some back. Call it what it is… paying it forward.
It may seem like a small issue, but it is part of the culture, the underlying assumptions people have about capitalism, money, etc. Why support an idea that undermines what we believe in, even with lip service?
I agree completely. not to mention all of the companies that brag about being non-profit when there are those out there that are for profit. Hospitals are the main example. profit is what funds the research that makes all their services better. it wont be too long until all of the federalized hospitals in the single payer system will be touted as non-profit so as to make their image better while the government confiscates more and more profit to pay for this non-profit.

A question I have not seen asked:
Does equating extremely rude talk with “sexual assault” trivialize rape?

I was only surprised that they had to go back over 10 years to find any tapes that awful. I’m sure he has said disrespectful and irresponsible things since. That said, there are more important issues than diareah of the mouth. Unfortunately, neither candidate is well suited to addressing them.
Which candidate is worse depends on what you are most concerned about, and what issues arise in the next few years. Both are poison. Both are wanna-be dictators. Both will expand some of our troubles/create new ones. I couldn’t bring myself to vote Trump and HOPE he really is the lesser of the 2 evils before us. With regard to the constitution & S. C. appointments, T has his own weaknesses, even if they are less obvious.
For example, Trump’s history with the abuse of eminent domain is troublesome in itself, and for what it may reflect with regard to how he views the concept of ownership itself. (What’s mine is mine, what’s yours is negotiable…we can renegotiate later) To own your own body, your labor, and the fruits of that labor ( your money & what you buy with it) are concepts that have been undermined by progressives for generations. They also underlie much of the the idea of human rights, and the rights of the people the constitution was written to protect.
Hillary is dangerous to the constitution, but I don’t immagine that Trump is less so.
His emphasis would be different, that’s all. Arguably, his damage could be deeper.

I read the article on how fact checkers compared C. & T. in the debate. What does it say about him that he went on national TV to debate with a known liar ( even Democrats laugh at calling her ‘honest’) and fact checkers say he played more fast and loose with the truth than she did?

3rd party & article Convention of States.

Good luck hoping one of them won’t kill you.
I choose C.

Trump may be an outsider (Democrat at heart) who stood up to the party…but he can’t stand the thought of anyone else breaking ranks with him. How very collectivist/statist…..
 September 27, 2016 at 12:21pm
My family split on the issue…some for T. the rest for Johnson.
Trump will be what he is, not what others want him to become.
He isn’t even pretending to change to get elected. What you see is what you get, a liberal who wants to undermine the protections of a free press, supports abuse of eminent domain, and speaks vaguely about helping innocent people get off the no fly list while supporting the use of it to deny people a constitutional right without due process.
You will get a RINO who doesn’t understand conservative principals well enough to articulate them in an interview, much less support them in practice.
He will be a tin pot dictator.

All computer models have produced predictions that deviated from reality… but This Time it will be different and we should believe them because….. ? (They can’t be wrong forever, if a broken clock can be right twice a day then they have to guess right someday … You must have faith – and give them money and power…)

I lived in Alaska. Climate change may be real, but the “science” is really questionable.
There are a LOT of variables, weather/climate is complex. The climate has been changing since before humans evolved. To seize on “human caused” and the plant food CO2 as THE cause now seems to be very political and not very scientific.
A lot of research money is going to studies involving CO2 and very little is going to research other climate variables. When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

What Clinton will not say during the debate
When she uses the word “fair” she assumes that she will decide whether something is fair.
Millions of people in the economy deciding that someone benefited them so much that the people directly affected were voluntarily paying $— , or avoided the product, just have to be incompetent to decide what is important to them – or how important it should be.
She and her friends will decide how much you should have valued things. That’s “fair”, right?

When her eyes move rapidly, they go out of sync. Not a symptom of stroke, but either post concussion or a certain degenerative disease. If concussion, it will gradually improve.
Her thick glasses have an unusual prescription associated with recovering from a stroke. She may have several health issues going on.

I am surprised he didn’t call her on the no fly list gaffe. He could have pointed out that stripping someone of a constitutional right without due process is taking a slippery slope a step too far.
Then he could have talked about
A. How easy it is to get on the list …how Kennedy ended up on the list 2x but had the political clout to get off…
B. That there really is no systematic review / due process to get OFF the list.
Instead he said vaguely that he supported helping people get off the list who were placed on it by accident but that he otherwise generally agreed with her.

Possibly. R.P. would be a good match for them, I’m not sure about Cruz. Any decent 3rd party candidate would attract attention at this point. R.P. & C. Would both be better than the current options. K. is too conventional to run 3rd party (especially this one) but if he were anywhere on the ticket independents would be interested.
I may make J. my protest vote. I haven’t seen any good options, and he would be better than Hillary. I have been worried that Trump might be as bad/worse in some ways than H. so Johnson may be a better pick than T.
Does anyone have a better idea?

They have to qualify for free /reduced cost lunches in most places.
Since the parents didn’t apply for free lunches….
