I am constantly amazed at how many “smart” people dismiss the fact that Trump has been a lifelong liberal Democrat and then suddenly becomes a “conservative” without espousing any conservative policies.
They really believe he’s going to nominate someone who is a CONSTITUTIONALIST to the Supreme Court? Really?
Reagan was a life long democrat head of actors union, till he saw the light
people can change
Trump is 70 yrs old. When is he going to stop changing. lol
@bobbie22 – It’s the same old false narrative. Reagan became a Republican 18 years before running for POTUS. Trump became a “Republican” 18 seconds before running for POTUS. Reagan preached conservative principles for decades. Trump has never preached conservative principles. Reality is a bitch, huh?
"people can change"
Sure, they can. Trump has not.
“Trump has been a lifelong liberal Democrat”
that is horribly inaccurate.
from 1987-1999, he was a registered (R)
from 1999-2001, he was (I)
from 2001- 2009, he was (D)
from 2009- 2011, he was (R)
from 2011- 2012, he was (I), again
and from 2012- present, he’s supposedly (R).
obviously, he doesn’t really care about your stupid political parties.
I am constantly amazed at how many “smart” people dismiss the fact that Trump was chosen without caring if he was a conservative which is relative to who you are, where you live and what you’re going to do when you get there. If you mean Bible preaching stompers well, then, you are not as “smart” as you think you are, smarty.
Trump is not a one faceted man but one thing is for sure, Hillary is.
Add Governor Perry to the Ronald Reagan list.
Here's to you:
Obviously we simply have no idea what Trump is going to do which has been my problem with him all along. Will the real Donald Trump please stand up and even if he did how would I know?
Don't forget that the FEC has records that Trump has donated more money to the GOP over the last 26 years than he has the Democrats, by a 2 to 1 margin. The problem is that too many people eat up whatever the media throws out without doing their own research, such as SlantedRant. EastInfection put up a great fact about Trump's REAL affiliations. Haven't seen any response yet.
Moral of the story - the bulls*** ends when the facts walks in.
Nice bit of research there, East. Thank you.
"Based on WHAT?"
This is like the first repub debate when he said single payer works and we need to look to Canada to fix our healthcare.
Now all the sudden on his website he said nothing about single payer but instead has done a complete 180 and basically wants privatized ins.. And we are supposed to believe him?
Based on what? His stance from a few months ago, or now?
I would have supported Trump. However he "changes" so frequently that I cannot trust him anymore than the usual suspects.
Now ask the witch!
Which would you prefer? Vote or don't vote at all!
You can guaranty what will happen with the witch, I hope you have a bunker because you will need it! Saying I made a stupid mistake will not change the outcome and too late, is too late.
Reviewing Hillary's health, I do not rule out madness when she tries to seizes political power. . Hillary lives in a world over run by madness. Madness is both beneficial and subversive constantly changing directions, stumbles as it rises, tells lies while shouting, aiming to pleas and displease simultaneously. I can describe Hillary's path going from nowhere to nowhere. Hillarie's delusions and fits of rage sees only the White House and what the WORLD can do for her. I say to myself, she is a witch or she is mad, stark raving mad, mad as a hatter. There is only one person in America and that person is Hillary Clinton.
I am constantly amazed at how many “smart” people have no preference between certain destruction vs possible destruction, and see them as one in the same.
Lemmings follow a catchy slogan right off the cliff
I guess the 18 years he spent as a Repub BEFORE he was elected president doesn't count, but the 18 MINUTES Trump said he was a Repub means everything, right?
Hey OLD WOMAN, you need to get your facts straight.. Donald Trump has been a registered Republican since the late 80's... Google before you spew... You know nothing about Donald... So before you make an idiot of yourself, educate.....
What people do is hear something and they don't check it. Ya always have to check ...
You need to quit believing his lies. If you want the truth, Eastinfection has the list covered quite well. Clean up your own yard before you criticize others.

Spanky, calling me names doesn’t do anything to strengthen your position. My position is based on common sense and, unfortunately, on proven safety concerns. What’s yours based on?
You shop where you want and I’ll shop where I feel most comfortable. That’s the beauty of Capitalism.

We have THREE Target stores within an easy drive and they typically get the first shot at outfitting my grandchildren. No more. This past week I spent $233.52 at Kohl’s instead.
Kohl’s announced that they will NOT follow Target’s lead and will expect men and women to use the dressing rooms and bathrooms of their naturally assigned gender. They now get first dibs.
Good to hear. Usually they are located in competition with them in many places. And a little higher class.
Well that makes sense... A Store like Kohl's with a bigoted washroom policy would attract customers ( like yourself) who are like wise bigoted.

We were frequent Target shoppers till this fiasco started. Yesterday, we took two of the grandkids (ages 7 & 8) to Kohl’s and spent $225 on summer things that we would have previously bought at Target.
AND, we had a good talk with the grandkids about WHY we won’t shop Target ever again.
This has little to do with being a R or D thing. It has to do with what WE, as citizens, tolerate. I will be mailing a copy of my Kohl’s receipt to Target corporate later today.

Last week I took my grandchildren into the Women’s restroom at a local RaceTrack after their soccer game. I stopped when I saw a sign on the restroom door that read:
“Gals. The Seat Will Always Be Down.” It was a royal blue sign about 12″ square with the typical female logo and a dotted line pointing from the woman to the words. (I took a photo of it, but can’t upload the photo here.)
I honestly didn’t know what to think. What are they saying here? They allow men in the women’s room, but assure me that they’ve already pre-screened these men and know that they won’t leave the seat up? Or, they won’t allow men in there?
If I hadn’t been in such a hurry, I would have stopped to talk with the manager. You can be assured that I will stop to ask before we use that gas station chain again. If they allow men, they are off my list of safe places to take my grandkids.
I could be wrong, but I believe what the management was saying is that they will not tolerate men in the ladies' room (hence the seat always being down). Just my opinion, but it does make sense.

It’s NEVER been about what the “trans” people want.
The Progressive movement has to destabilize the family. Sexual norms must go out the window, and allowing people to use whatever bathroom fits their mood is part of the Progressive movement’s agenda.
As is the forced acceptance of all the monikers they now proclaim are legitimate sexual expressions. (Remember when it used to be just Lesbian and Gay that we had to accept?)

Both the artist and the wealthy people who feel the need to spend millions of dollars on trash. It speaks volumes about their inner beauty.
Yes, yes there are some very sick people out there.
Yet I wonder if God allows them to exist, so that, in the end, humanity can see the influence of evil on the lives of people who embrace such madness, insanity, and ideology of death incarnate.
Are you making a comment about the artist, or just making a statement about people in general?
 May 5, 2016 at 8:51pm
Thanks, Bearway. I literally just brought my two grandchildren (ages 7 & 8) into the den to sit down and watch both videos. To the best of my knowledge, neither have ever been around a handgun or rifle.
When the video above was over, both agreed that the youngsters should never have touched the gun. I asked what they should do and the 8-year-old said, “Run out of the room.” Why? “Because i wouldn’t want to get shot.”
Then I played the NRA video. It’s geared to their age and was quite simple, but good. It teaches the kids through a song — “Stop. Don’t touch. Run away. Get a grownup.”
They are now talking with their mom about scenarios where they might find a gun and what they’d do.
Good teaching moment! Thanks, Bearway64.

Charlie, the key here is the word “faithful” Catholic. Neither Pelosi or Kerry fall into that category.
 May 5, 2016 at 12:35am
Charlie, you should come down South! I had lived in 7 states before I arrived in Georgia. In each of the other locations, Catholicism was the predominant religion. Most Catholics I knew were poorly catechized and what we’d call “lukewarm” in their faith. They knew the basics, but that was about it. So, I was never challenged in my faith.
Down in the South, Catholicism represents only about 1% of the population and it was here that I found out many of the strong Protestant faiths consider Catholics to be heretics — not Christians at all. Under that kind of scrutiny and lots of questions about my faith, I was forced to study it in earnest and learned so much that I had missed as a child.
Thank God for the religious groups that made me work at it, as I learned so much and really came to know Jesus in a much deeper way. Now I can say that I’m proud to be Catholic and can dialogue easily about what we really believe.
 May 5, 2016 at 12:26am
Freunlaven, you are making a mistake that many Catholics make. Christ has promised to protect His Church and has said the “Gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” The key word here is PREVAIL. The Barque of Peter has been under assault from within as well as from without, but She WILL PREVAIL and ultimately win in the end.
As you should know, the Church has had many popes who were scoundrels. They have, in their own times, given the Church a black eye. But the Church has always righted the boat and prevailed.
Anyone who has taken a serious look at our current Pope has got to see the Marxist tendencies there. He seems to delight in leaving not only the faithful, but the uncatechized, scratching their heads. Strong, orthodox Cardinals have called him on the carpet for this.
Cavallo was merely pointing that out, which doesn’t make him a heretic. The rest of Cavallo’s arguments don’t make a lot of sense to me, but everyone is entitled to their opinion.
I just wanted to set the record straight regarding the “Gates of Hell” comment, which has been tossed around a lot lately in the Catholic circles.

Pegasus, it’s even more deplorable that there are very, very few homes for unwed mothers here in the US — even ones sponsored by the Catholic Church. Our country has abandoned the practice of helping these women because abortion is so readily available.
As a part-time sidewalk counselor outside of an abortion clinic, I have MANY times tried to find a place for a woman who chose to walk away from the clinic and keep her pregnancy, but who also faced being kicked out of her current living situation if she did NOT abort. They know that keeping the pregnancy means they will be homeless and we often don’t have a good solution; mainly because the few beds we have available have a long waiting list.
I’m happy to say that our local Archdiocese here in Atlanta donated an unused retirement home to a local Christian charity who specializes in helping these mommies and it had the grand opening just last week. With ten units, they are already at capacity! The facility is called “Sheltering Grace.” It is run by a wonderful Christian group and these mothers get hands-on help getting their lives on track — job training, parenting skills, schooling, etc.
 May 4, 2016 at 4:59pm
I can’t imagine a more ridiculous headline.
Not only can FAITHFUL Catholics be good citizens, it used to be that others looked to the Catholics as standard-bearers in the community. Catholic charity work has been the bulwark of many institutions — hospitals, schools, universities. Not to mention homes for the terminally ill or unwed mothers.
Catholics held the belief that we are to give back to our community and hold ourselves to high moral standards.
Granny : It is deplorable that the Catholic homes for unwed mothers and orphans have justifiably received such a bad rep in Ireland. It appears that the situation in these "homes" was frighteningly sub-standard

Oh, how I wish Cruz hadn’t jumped on the trash Trump bandwagon. He needed to stick to his policies and stay the high road. I believe he lost a lot of votes due to the recent negativity.
 May 3, 2016 at 7:38pm
aaaro88, acceptance, but not in the way you are thinking.
Acceptance in the fact that many tens of thousand of people have fasted and prayed for Cruz, acknowledging that our nation has walked FAR from God’s principles and many more tens of thousands are asking for a “king.” Those people have no idea what they will be getting when their “king” sits on the throne.
But we do.
Acceptance that God has permitted it is different — far different — than accepting The Donald as our leader.
 May 3, 2016 at 7:31pm
Sorry, but NEVER TRUMP. I’d rather see Hillary in the WH than Trump.
The devil you know.
 May 2, 2016 at 12:31am
Sorry, Monk, but when you work in a service industry, you have to learn to take the crap with a smile on your face. What harm would it have done for this wanna-be owner to have kissed butt, even though he was seething inside? He has to learn how to grow up if he wants to be an owner.
You know better, Monk. You let me down on this one.
 May 1, 2016 at 8:15pm
gdibig, everyone of any significance has already shot down Trump on that one. There is no there there. Cruz’s eligibility is a non-issue — just another one of Trump’s smokescreens.
 May 1, 2016 at 7:58pm
Sorry, Sailplanesailor, I’m calling your bluff on this one.
Cruz smug? Trump has that in spades, and it’s the least annoying of his traits.
