What Difference Does it Make?

And this is why I felt Trump lost every debate. I was listening for the intelligent conversation and insight / strategy. Since I wasn’t hearing any, I figured he had lost the debate. More than once, I turned to my wife and said, “He’s done!”
And yet, almost every poll would show he won. At that point, I figured the polls were rigged or being pumped. (Drudge comes to mind.) But then, he would win the primaries!
At some point I figured out that a large portion of the people didn’t give a hoot about the issues, they just wanted to send a bully down to DC. Ok, great plan for Day 1, but what about day 2 and the next 4 years?
Still, I suspect a debate with Sanders will result in me thinking he lost, but most people thinking he won. Sanders will get flustered because of Trump going off topic, therefore, since the actual issues don’t matter and were not debated, people will see one person “commanding” the debate, and the other a flustered defeated man. In other words, the outcome will be based on emotion and looks as compared to content.

The FBI can’t figure out that if cops are afraid to do their job for fear of it ending their career that crime and murder may rise?
Of course, you can cue up the gun grabbers in a few seconds.
After all, it isn’t really the ruthless criminals that are free to commit crimes without punishment… They’re just misunderstood.

…and we thing the Obama DOJ is going to indict?
Not a chance! Pardon, maybe, Indict, no.
I completely disagree. If you think Obama is going to save Hillary then you haven't been paying attention.
The DOJ has already gone farther than they would have if Obama wanted to protect Hillary.
Obama has made it crystal clear that he wants Sanders to win, and he has the ability do so via the Justice Department. With Cruz out of the way, Republicans now have zero chance of winning the white house.
That means the Dem wins regardless of who it is. And it will be Bernie. Watch and see.

So, the post is Liberal leaning….
Who the heck is still voting for this woman????
I thought Trump lost every debate in the primary, yet the public thought differently. Have to reassess. Bernie has a very narrow range of debate, as soon as Trump takes Bernie off topic he will flounder.
Sanders will make some logical point, and Trump will respond; “Bernie the Bum, never had a real job in his life! He doesn’t have any idea how to win, that’s why Crooked Hillary is wiping the floor with him!” At that point Sanders will have no idea how to reply and will go down in flames.
“narrow range of debate”
Isn’t that the point of a debate? Nothing is more infuriating than when you’re arguing (“debating”) something, and the person you’re talking to goes off-topic. Whoever goes derails the topic (pretty much what Trump does with every question he’s asked) is obviously losing because they CAN’T answer the question.
Topic: Safety when driving
“You should really use your blinker before turning so you can indicate your actions to other drivers, making the road safer when operating 3-ton vehicles that could kill someone in an instant”
“Look…I have a car…I have a great car. My car is the greatest, ok? If you saw my car, and then you saw my wife in my car, you’d say, ‘wow, that’s a great car and a great wife you have.’ And another thing…this guy over here can’t even drive. I make great business deals, and that’s how I can afford great cars.”
Which of these sounds like the losing response?
Anyway, what I’m saying is, Bernie wouldn’t even have to do anything, really. He’s smart enough to outsmart Trump if he goes off-topic tries to stall or derail the conversation.

You're over estimating the intelligence of the average Trump supporter...they love his stupid insults because he reminds them that he's one of them...and of course he's not.
I’m with you all the way until “Sanders will get flustered”.
We’ve never seen Trump debate anyone one-on-one yet (right? I mean, there’s been so many debates, I might be mistaken). If it’s going to be one-on-one, Trump doesn’t have anyone/thing to deflect to. Bernie’s a smart guy. A handful of the other Republican dropouts are smart guys…but no one has ever gone one-on-one with Trump. I think whoever (jeez, at this point, it could be a well-versed high school student) goes one-on-one with Trump is going to make him look like a complete idiot.
All of his responses to any questions — whether it be in a debate, in an interview, or on a talk show — are just rambling, incoherent, nonsensical responses. You put that up against anyone else, and it’s definitely going to backfire. I’d be really surprised if this debate actually happened because I feel like everyone in Trump’s camp would (should) be terrified at this prospect.
Even if Trump tries to fluster Sanders (or anyone he goes 1-on-1 with), the easiest thing to do would just be either ignore him and stick to the debate questions, or call him out on avoiding answering the questions, and wait for him to flounder himself because he doesn’t actually know how run anything. Just my two cents.
@John - The reason you thought he lost was because you failed to understand the answer he gave. It's not that you aren't intelligent or well educated, you obviously are. Its that you didn't understand the manner or way he was speaking. You heard the question, formed an answer you would find acceptable and then dismissed those that didn't answer in as sophisticated a way as you would have. Unfortunately, 75% of the population lacks the ability to do that very thing. They hear the question, then wait for an answer. If they like what they hear, they support the person that said it. Trumps genius isn't in the fact that he can work the system to his benefit or that he understands economics better than any politician (he has and does), it is that he can speak to that 75% of the population using the same language they use. He is as smart as you are (maybe more so) but he is practiced in communicating with the widest range of people possible. Everything he says is designed and meant to be understood immediately by those people, not by people like you. People like you should be smart enough to figure out what he is saying without him having to 'smarten it up' for you. People like you should be smart enough to read between the lines, do some research and understand what he means instead of being spoon fed information like everyone else. Or maybe I'm just giving you to much credit.

Yea, he was full of BS on that one. The event didn’t raise that kind of money, but he feels the need to make everything bigger than life. In fact, if you take out the $1m he says he put in, you come to $1.4m raised. At the time, he was PO’ed at Megan and Fox, and boycotted the debate and used the $6m figure to show “how great” his event was compared to the debate. At this point, I discount every number he quotes by 50 to 75%

Asphalt in India is also not the same as here. It is a simpler mix with a lower grade of tar. This has to do with how they refine fuels over there and a lack of standards for contractors. The result is something that doesn’t stabilize and is subject to melting.
Hey John, and good morning!
If the veterans had in fact gotten the last 6 million from this guy, I might even pay it credence. In my opinion he uses the cover of “charity” too frequently and follows through too infrequently for me to take him at his word, instead of just another distraction from his intent to exploit any opportunity for further personal gain.

@Barf/John - Follow the money.
Trump didn't raise as much as he said, but the money he did raise has been given to various charities involved with Veterans. While he didn't raise the 6 million he previously claimed, he did raise 4.45 Million and at least 3.1 has been dispensed to Veterans charities around the country. I think I'll take David Fahrenthold's word on this over anyone else to date. You can disregard the source all you want but it doesn't change the fact that he has still raised more money this year for Veterans than ANY other candidate in the race has ever raised for them at all.

The “out” that the feds will use is that there is no guarantee in the constitution that states get federal funding for education. So, “we call the shots or you don’t get your money! ”
And that is the TRUE cancer of allowing a bigger government to develop to the extent that even our education system is on a type of Federal welfare. States and counties should have never started accepting the financial handouts from the fed. Now they see the real cost, a loss of control of local power.

I though that in August, but it looks like he’s only scratched the surface. Clinton is a goldmine of scandal and corruption stories, and the press (who doesn’t much like her) will eat it all up. Easily enough for a new scandal every week from now until the general.

Lets clear the air on one thing—-
For the most part, it’s not the workers making the demands, it is unions and union thugs that are staging these “protests” in hopes of convincing fast-food workers to unionize. If the $15 mw goes through, they will then pressure fast food workers to join the unions, claiming that they are owed! This is all about increasing membership and producing more dues payments.
While that may be one take on it you can be guaranteed that many of these kids aren't going to join unions so that they have to pay part of that $15 an hour to them.
And don't forget union wages are pegged to minimum wage. That's really what it's all about.
Join or don't work!
Just why do you think the unions are behind this?
Hus(in)sains nlrb will enforce it!
Do you understand that in commiefornia the unions are bribing the legislature so they will be exempt from the 15.00?
@Mcsledge - it's not that the kids will be joining unions. It's that unions by and large use "minimum wage" as the basis for indexing their OWN wage demands. The higher minimum wage goes, the higher union wages go, becuz of course "union workers are worth MORE than just minimum wage." And with Bernie Sanders' advocacy of punishing US corporations that offshore work and forcing businesses to keep a certain amount in the US, that guarantees massive, rampant inflation as though we were seeing yet another incarnation of Jimmeh Cawtuh.
But the bottom line is: The robot will not pick his nose, scratch his azzz, create pimples, dirty hair, smelly hair, smelly armpits, nasty azzz dirty clothes, unbrushed teeth, bad breath, crappy fingernails, pants that hang off their azzzz, and lets stop there.. I'm almost sick thinking about some of these losers.. Tats all over them, nose rings, and those horrible huge round holes in their ears....ARGH, that makes me hurl...
You best start cleaning up your bods, its coming... Clear up that complexion, fill in all those holes, rid your body of tats, get an education, (lmao),LEARN HOW TO SPEAK THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, not the hood speak, if you hurry up, in about five years you might get a delivery job....lmao
It is more than just wanting to unionize the fast food industry. An increase in the minimum wage, especially one as large as this, impacts all hourly wage rates. On average a person who enters a minimum wage job advances beyond the minimum wage within 6 months. Supervisors who had worked their way up the ladder and now earning between $15 and $20 and hour, meaning that the business values them 2 to 3 times more than a beginning worker earning minimum wage. Now all of a sudden the beginning worker starts at $15. The Supervisors are going to have to have their hourly rate bumped up as well, but it would be extremely doubtful that a company could afford to value them at the same rate. And these rate increases continue to work their way through the system and they will have an impact on union jobs too. If a starting rate for a union job is currently $15 an hour if the minimum rate goes to $15 that union job will be increased. All of this without a single increase in productivity, meaning it is a net loss to the business. A business only choice will be to automate and/or get by with less employees. The extent to which businesses cannot cut payroll and/or increase productivity they will have to increase prices. These price increases will be purely inflationary, meaning that there is no increase in quality, service etc.
Unemployment will go up and the group that will be hardest hit are those unskilled workers and young people working their first jobs. So the cost of l

I love how the entire part about her DELETING 30,000 emails (at her discretion) before handing anything over has just faded into “yesterday’s news.” To me, that is the single biggest issue! All this trouble from the 30,000 she kept…. Imagine what was in the 30,000 she criminally destroyed!

Man falls in Lion’s den. Only a few licked clean bones are found several hours later.
Is it a reach to come to the conclusion the lions ate him?
Trump said the obvious as it had a 95% chance of being true.
(And this comes from someone who doesn’t like him!)

Would have to agree that if you are looking for a booming voice, ya ain’t gonna hear it!
At least to me, it is usually a passing thought that appears to have no origin relevant to what I was thinking, yet something in me knows that the “thought” is true.
Guess that’s why a progressive would never think they actually heard anything from God, and would write it off as early signs of schizophrenia.
The difference is, the thought usually fixes, or is helpful, even if you resist it because you don’t feel like doing something.
Actually, it sounds like he may have been more swayed by the nature of the crime. Why else would he include in his opinion the man's confession? He wasn't being asked to decide the validity of the case, only if excluding all black people from the jury was discriminatory.
Racism isn't even a factor either. It doesn't matter why the prosecution excluded all black people. I don't care if they did it because the don't like black people or if they thought all white people (imo stereotypical) would be more likely to convict. It doesn't matter. What matters is they excluded all individuals based on race alone.
I don't think Thomas is saying there was no racism. He is merely saying that the Batson issue was harmless error. There is a significant difference.
At the end of the day Judge Clarence Thomas is NOT Black, he is a CHRISTIAN, which is why he was attacked so viciously at his conformation hearing. Apparently Judge Thomas walks with God and as such he does not see color, he sees just another one of God creations.
If only America walked with God again. In God We Trust.
Don't forget the defense could of objected to no blacks on the jury, but didn't. Looks like a smart defense team that actually used race to win.
There was no fake racism! The prosecutors bluntly admitted to every damn thing! What about that do you not understand?!
If YOU think you get 'justice' in a "kangaroo court of law".......think again....it's all about 'payback' for 'past transgressions'........wait for the next phase: "SHOW ME THE MONEY"..........
If blacks are on jury they will let them go every time. They don't care if he admitted the crime.
Clarence watch your back, 0bama had Anton Murdered
we need you Brother.
The law exists to protect the innocent from the guilty. If this guy walked out of court society would be put in would be in danger, but not before more money would be wasted in the trial process. We could lose twice. Here the original trial did error in the jury selection, but with a confession he was kept locked up. Justice won in the end . If it aint broken, …

Obama, your TREASON is complete! Nothing like arming communists….
While trying his best to ban them here.
But we're too busy arguing about restrooms.
We can't wait for January. Let him stay in Asia.
I'm giddy with anticipation of his next move. The hits just keep on comin'!
You must have missed that whole "cold war over, we won" thing.
You must be a young 'un. We didn't mean anything in Nam. Because of politicians, we just left and let the commies have it. Crack open a history book occasionally, we lost a lot of good military people over there for nothing.

Any store that calls itself “Target” and doesn’t sell ammo has a problem in my book!
As for the stock and sales, they can make all the excuses they want, but at the same time as their sales went down, competitors, like Walmart had an increase in sales.

It will be a “curb” instead.
