    You want a fence around the White House or a Wall at the Mexican border that works? Easy. You must man each with Soldiers and .50 M-2 Machine guns with instructions to engage at will, the wall or fence is now immediately 100 percent successful.

    A fence or wall without enforcement is a waste of money and resources….Ask the East Germans how to build a wall or fence and make it work…1961.

    In my opinion, if you are not willing to shoot those who will cross your barrier, do not erect one inf the first place.

    I have tried a few churches in my area in the last few years. In addition to the “feel good message”, they spend more time reading notes about internal church projects and internal church ministries (youth group, singles group, etc.) than they do preaching (they do not pause for you to open your Bible to follow along because you don’t need to know where passages are in the Bible, and THEY want to be the authority (sounds like Big Government to me).

    Teaching The Word is no longer conducted. (I attended a Pentecostal Church headed by Dr. Lester Sumrall, he would reach on a topic such as “Was Mary a Virgiin?”, arguing with himself about the original meaning of the word “V” possibly meaning a young married woman without child…near the end of the sermon as you expected him to reveal a definitive answer he would say “it doesn’t matter what the “V” word means, that he will believe in Jesus Christ and ask Jesus himself what the scripture meant when they meet face to face!”

    Also, too many churches have a “drummer” in a box and if you cannot simultaneously sing four notes on each syllable of each word in each song, you are not worthy to sing along with the Praise and Worship at the beginning of service.

    I like this plan…Finally we will get the poor and the criminals who exist on an underground economy to PAY SOME DAMN TAXES..because we know these people all purchase guns legally. These people get the same amount of National Security that I get, yet pay little taxes..such people should not even be allowed to vote…but I digress.

    If you are white, have a pen!s and a job and are law abiding,….you are funding EVERYTHING in this free “friends of the court” for divorce if you have a p3n!s….etc, etc….

    At least Trump has Executive Leadership experience…unlike mere Senators (who only know “rule by committee” such as Cruz, Rubio..etc.). Only Governors, Military Leaders and CEO’s/Entrepreneurs or others with successfully demonstrated and measurable Executive Leadership experience should be considered by any voter…petty government functionaries below the level of POTUS (unless they have be a Governor) should be allowed to run.

    Rush made a great point about this issue, “born rich” as mentioned here by AbrahamsSheepdawg or actually I believe, given some money by his Father. Anyhow, Rush said something about idiots inheriting money or winning the lotter only to be broke later. Getting money does not make a person smarter, it does not mean they will not waste the money, shoot it up their arm, snort it, or drink it…..

    The point is, Trump may have started with a modest sum of wealth but not only held on to, he amassed even more….why do so many people fear those who are successful in life? Do you want a loser leading a nation of 320 million people?

    Personally, I do not even want former Senators running for let alone being elected POTUS…Executive Leadership Experience should be on the top of every voters list. If a person has only ruled by committee and never been in charge of anything…what qualifies them to lead a nation of 320 million people. The only people who should even be allowed to run for POTUS are: former Governors, former Military Leaders and CEO’s/Entrepreneurs.

    To Marnin,

    Let me break this down to you so even you can understand why I am supporting Trump.

    1. Only an idiot would vote for a person with no Executive Leadership Experience, to lead a nation of 320 million who has not led so much as a Cub Scout den.

    2. Former Senators, Members of the House, Secretaries of State and other petty government functionaries who know only how to rule by committee, who know not the sweet taste of success based on solely made, autonomous, unilateral decisions to guide an endeavor should not even be allowed to run for POTUS, and only idiot voters would vote for them.

    3. Personnel deserving of votes for POTUS: former Governors who have made decisions, enacted legislation through Executive Order and wrestled with life and death issues such as Stays of Execution; Military Leaders; CEO’s and Entrepreneurs.

    4. You are welcome for the enlightenment.

    Here is how to fix this:

    Trump should be charging $100 per person to attend his rallies (how many people pay more than that for tickets to see an entertainer?..I just spent $250 to see Garth Brooks).

    Now as a paying attendee, if someone interferes with my right to a reasonable expectation of enjoying a “paid event”, I can knock the crap out of them, fully justified.

    By charging $100, most of the off-the-street riff-raff will not attend and the professional agitators who do pay to enter will at least be “donating” money to Trumps effort.

    Mr. Trump could graciously donate all the proceeds to charity, now my ticket is tax deductible….a win/win for all.

    Even at a free rally, why does not the media speak up for MY RIGHT to a reasonable expectation of enjoying listening to someone I want to hear.

    …at the Garth Brooks concert I had to ask a person next to me who was singing obnoxiously to stop it….I told her I paid to hear Garth Brooks, no one is paying to listen to shut up. Most people, out of fear, will do as you direct because they are not used to being told what to do….too many snowflakes out there.

    I attended the Trump Rally in Fayetteville, NC on Wednesday 09MAR2016. There were many protesters being ejected…fortunately for them, they were not sitting near me. Do I not have a right to a reasonable expectation of being able to listen to someone at a venue I selected to attend, without distraction from riff-raff?

    Mr. Trump, here is how to reduce the number of protesters (though I know that the protesters get coverage from the MSM who must mention your name when showing the protesters, thus, free advertising). Start charging $100 per person to get in..even if the “professional protesters” cannot afford the ticket, their “handlers” will pay their way, thus helping to fund your campaign by offsetting some of the cost of renting the venue…a win, win!!! To make it more stringent, attendees could be required to show a voter registration card for either Republican or Independent….as there is no reason to be addressing non-voters…..thus denying entrance to registered democrats (people who will never vote for Trump anyhow, thus should not be attending the Trump Rallyies).

    I paid over $250 each for two tickets to see Garth Brooks last night in Raleigh…..I suspect most Trump supporters would be glad to pay an entrance fee of $100 helping Trump to fund his effort…AND….not having to listen to riff-raff.

    Personally, I think it was a great day.

    Trump, by poking people in the eye (setting up a rally by a Capitalist in Chicago of all places), we learn who our enemies are….too bad the MSM does not play this lack of decorum up more. Certain people are revealing how poorly they were raised.

  • [6] March 12, 2016 at 8:36am

    Donald, please quit trying to talk to the animals, the 47 percent who pay no Federal Taxes (yet enjoy the safety of National Security and the benefits of groceries being delivered to their neighborhoods via a great Federal Highway infrastructure), it upsets them, and in the big scheme of things, as “takers”, they deserve no consideration from those of us who do pay taxes.

    Donald, focus on the base and you will win.

    I was a member of the 10,000 audience at the Trump rally in Fayetteville, NC this week.

    When does MY right to a reasonable expectation of going to public event and enjoy the message/speaker I expect to hear take effect? Why must I suffer protesters disrupting my enjoyment of the event?

    Can I walk in to a black church on Sunday and stand up and shout obscenities? Can I attend a Mrs. Clinton event and stand up and shout obscenities? Sure, but why would I?….I was raised better than that, it is impolite to disrupt an event I did not pay to host. This type of thinking is why we Republicans are not being successful at winning anymore because we are too polite and too timid to tell others to shut up or leave.

  • [1] March 11, 2016 at 3:03pm

    As a Capitalist, Trump would of course manufacture goods where he can get the best deal (taxes and wages…which can be “incentivized” by a U.S. government to be more favorable)….to make more money…that is what a Capitalist does…

    Now, if we had politicians who understood that they have the power to “incentivize” businesses to stay or return to the U.S., we would be in much better shape as a nation with respect to jobs and the economy.

    Of the remaining viable candidates, Trump, Rubio and Cruz…who has demonstrated Executive Leadership experience?…hint…it starts with a “T”….

    Petty government functionaries such as mere former Senators, Members of the House, Secretaries of State or ilk such as Community Organizers (a job title I never heard until 2007…but I digress)…who know only rule by committee, who have never been allowed to make autonomous, unilateral decisions to guide an endeavor, who cannot be terminated on the spot for failure should have the decency to know they are not qualified to lead a nation of 320 million.

    Only idiots would for someone to lead a nation of 320 million who have no Executive Leadership Experience, and have never been in charge of anything.

    People who we should vote for: former Governors, former Military Leaders, Entrepreneurs and CEO’s…..everyone else need not apply.

    Tell Cruz and Rubio to run a State for a few years, then run for POTUS….stupid voters…..

    to Gustav,

    So if someone is raping your wife you would just stand by and cheer and watch?…pervert!

    I was at the Trump rally in Fayetteville, NC on Wednesday 08MAR2016. There were about a dozen protesters ejected by the authorities.

    Where does my right of reasonable expectations to enjoy a public event I attend without disruption from protestors?….when I say it ends! Had one of the protesters been near me I would have put my hands on them and pushed them back into their seat until the authorities grabbed them.

    Trump plays the protesters off well, he says it is the only time the TV cameras pan around and show how large the audience is. (I would not be surprised if Trump is paying people to protest as he gets free advertising on the MSM news outlets as they cover the protesters for than they cover the event…if Trump is supporting he protesters he continues to prove that he is a marketing/media genius, if not, he still gets a big bang for the buck with respect to advertising).

    Why are Republicans not out protesting at Mrs. Clinton’s events?…because we have a sense of decorum as to how to behave in public….OR the MSM is not reporting on the protesters, running interference for the poor helpless female.

    Recently retired Army Veteran here, served 26 years, four combat deployments since 9-11 as a Paratrooper in the 82nd…..Electronic Maintenance Chief.

    Did Muslim Extremists sign the Geneva and Hague Conventions?

    Is there a Repatriation of POW’s upon cessation of hostilities agreement? (hard to accept the remains of decapitated corpses).

    Are the provisions for the Red Cross to visit POW’s held in captivity by the Muslim Extremist Terrorists?

    Do Muslim Extremist Terrorists use civilians as shield?

    In WW-II ow many German civilians and military personnel did we have to k!ll to force their leader to commit suicide and defeat their military?

    In WW-II how many Japanese civilians and military personnel did we have to k!ll to force their leaders to publicly sign documents of surrender?

    When was the last time America won a war? (hint, see the two previous questions, since we abandoned these proven tactics, we have not won a war).

    After answering all theses questions, I always wondered why American Forces had to adhere to “Escalation of Force” and “Rules of Engagement” guidelines (sure, to win the hearts and minds of people who are unwilling to extricate themselves from tyranny, and to maintain a positive world-wide public relations gambit).

    Do not tell me you cannot k!ll an ideal, you just have to k!ll enough of the right people….also, we must be willing to k!ll them wherever they are, wherever our intelligence leads us, regardless of borders.

    Personally, I am OK with roughing up the media…they need to be taught to “heel”. I am tired of the media bashing MY views, and the public at large expecting me to be PC, they think they have the right to control my language.

    I was at the Trump Rally last night in Fayetteville, NC (09MAR2016) with several thousand in the fully packed Crown Coliseum. There were about a dozen incidents of “protestors”, all of whom were ejected by the security team. I had to wonder why WE are not disrupting Billary’s events…is it because WE on the Conservative side are too polite and actually have manners?

    I am attending a school for IT and during Career Week, we had mock interviews about a week ago. I used the word “subordinate” when referring to my past experience with respect to supervising subordinate team leaders. The instructor (a black female 30-something) said I should not use the word “subordinate” in an interview because it can offend some people, that work places are “teams”. I told her that if that word offends someone interviewing me I hope they express that opinion, then I can tell them they will not control my language…I would rather know where my enemies are so I can walk out of the interview as I would never work in a place where the employees are so sensitive. With my Military Retirement income, I can afford to be selective where I work. Just to push her buttons, when she asked me what industry I would like to support, I told her anything but a non-profit entity.

    Mr. Trump to Mrs. Clinton, in a debate (as he WILL BE the nominee..other than Kaisich, he is the only one with Executive Leadership experience..unlike mere former Senators Cruz and Rubio. and only idiots would vote for people with no higher experience than Senator)…but I digress): Mrs. Clinton, you keep claiming that you never sent E-mails on your PERSONAL SERVER as Secretary of State, however, using a personal server for official government business possibly being illegal, aside, which were MARKED as Classified…. you are aware that if a communication contains information regarding the location or movement of National Assets, names of operations, names of operatives, etc., that it does not matter whether the document is marked as Classified, the information is the determining factor…not the marking?

    Mrs. Clinton: stutter, stammer….

    Mr. Trump: Mrs. Clinton, as the Secretary of State is it not likely that YOU actually were the originator of critical communication containing Classified information, that such original content with you as the author, having not been yet submitted and vetted for Classification identification, could in fact be Classified, whether marked as such or not?

    Mrs. Clinton: Stutter, Stammer…..why are you asking such pointed questions?…Right-Wing Conspiracy…..Roswell…..erp…….

    Two hours, really?

    Dart gun, net….that’s how they get bears out of trees in a yard. Charge her for the financial loss as a result of lost productivity of all who were delayed by the traffic shut-down…just as people in Ferguson were held financially responsible for the damage they caused….this is how you prevent other idiots from doing the same thing….oh, we never made the Ferguson rioters pay for damages….NEVER MIND.

  • [1] March 6, 2016 at 1:02pm

    To tazzman,

    Really? You are willing to vote for someone to be POTUS, a mere, fomer Senator with no Executive Leadership Experience?..This is your metric for selecting a person to lead a nation of over 300 million people? Someone who knows only “rule by committee” and has never had sole, autonomous authority to make unilateral decisions to direct an endeavor? Someone who has never been held directly responsible and accountable for success or failure, someone it takes a recall or merely waiting four years to vote them out, instead of them facing immediate termination for failure?

    As for me, I am only considering people who have demonstrated Executive Level Leadership experience….such as: former Governors, former military leaders, former CEOs/Entrepreneurs/

    Not on my list for consideration: functionary government employees such as Members of the House or Senate, Secretaries of State or Community Organizers (a job title I never heard of until 2007), or others of this ilk who have never been in charge of anything and thus are not qualified to lead a nation as large as America.

    Make America Great again!! To Trump Go!!!
