    I don’t think people get it. The politicians have set up a pay to play government (Both Republicans and Democrats). Donald Trump as a business man simply plays by the rules his government has given him, either you pay, or you don’t get to play. THE DIFFERENCE? Donald Trump will tell you that he has paid to play. Any large company pays to play, if they say they don’t, they are liars. He does not hide behind the lies and deceit. He knows how politicians work with businesses, therefore, he knows how to fix the corruption. If he didn’t want to fix it, he would try to hide behind the lies and deceit like all the other businesses that don’t want to hurt their chances of being successful by rubbing their senators back.

    Does Harry Reid really think this administration knows how to give a REAL or TRUTHFUL briefing anyway? …hahahahahahaha

    Isn’t that what Romney said?

    CATALYST: So “typical Trumpanzee response to something critical of Trump’s judgement.” Are you meaning his judgement to endorse someone that ended up losing, just like the judgement those that supported Cruz, Rubio, Bush, Carson…? Or are you bashing his judgement on endorsing a tea party candidate, ummm, kind of like Cruz?

    The problem with the political world today is that it is mimicking the school playground. Everyone wants the same thing (ie fun, fairness, a chance to play), they just disagree on how to do it. Instead of learning how to talk to each other and find a solution on how to do it, they just fight over why it has to be my way or the highway. If I can make you out to be the bully or the weakling or the stupid one, I can get my way. Honestly, we need someone that can tell the far Right and the far Left to come to the party or get out of the way, because the majority will benefit with a middle ground compromise.

    “My point in this is not to give you a gavel by which to go around pronouncing judgment on others,” Driscoll concluded. “But rather, for each of us to examine our own life to see if we have truly met Jesus and if so how he has changed us.”

    Christ is the judge, not us. We all sin in some way. We have no right to cast the first stone.

    Why would you pick a picture that shows an excited man to symbolize a neutral gender bathroom?

    Affirmative action is policies that provide equal access to education for those groups that have been historically excluded or underrepresented. I don’t see how this is even comparable. If affirmative action was used during this race, you would have seen just as many white, black, Hispanic, Asian, male, female and transgender 1st place winners. How is this “celebrating mediocrity”? Is 1st, 2nd and 3rd superior and worthy of celebration, while 4th or below is just “mediocrity” and should in no way be recognized in a positive manner? Are we that heartless today? In the Olympics, we should shun and ridicule the 4th place runner, because he/she finished .01 second behind 3rd place? Is it victimhood to give someone a “participation” ribbon for having “participated” in a race? Did she “participate”? Did she win? Did she get a ribbon for winning, when she didn’t win? Being the daughter of a highly competitive football player, don’t you think she knows the difference between a 1st place ribbon and a “participation” ribbon? I know that this rhetoric (2nd is just the first loser,celebrating mediocrity…) is used to make us feel good about our self as a parent, “look at me, I’m raising tough kids in a soft world. They need to cry. They need to know that they suck once in a while. It makes them better in the long run.”

    lockandload: I can’t understand where your “by that logic” even relates to your “there shouldn’t be grades in school”. If you follow the logic of getting a paycheck for your job performance, that is exactly why there are grades in school. It’s not an A for the best student in the school and the rest don’t get a grade. You get graded on your effort and how you perform. Just like your job, just like the race. This girl participated and was graded accordingly. Did she get an A? No. If she had not attend school, should she get a grade? No. This is not a liberal way of thinking, this is how the world works. I’m still trying to figure out how getting paid based on your job performance is even comparable to your claim that no one in school should get a grade (that is liberal thinking). This is going to keep me up tonight trying to figure out how anyone can draw that conclusion. hmm, baffling.

    See, you just want to know how much he really makes. This is for self gratification, not anything to do with being qualified to be president. There are plenty of places to look and see if he is a great business man, as he claims. His taxes are not one of them. I can be the best business man in the world and a recession could make my taxes look like a loser, because my taxes are based on money earned, deductions and tax rate. They have nothing to do with how I work with a team, how I delegate responsibility, how I hire or fire employees, how I budget… A tax form is just a stupid political tool to get the poor to support the “least wealthy” politician.

    Don’t you think the IRS would recommend prosecution if there was any fraud or illegal stuff on his returns? The only reason people want to see them is to see how much he has earned (so they can bash him form being a 1%er, which does not disqualify him from being president), how much he has or has not given to charity (something that does not disqualify him from being president), where his income has come from (which doesn’t always mean that’s where the money came from, ie Clinton Global Initiative, Speaking fees…). Nothing on his tax return would disqualify him from being president, unless fraud was found and he was convicted of a crime. That is for the IRS to figure out, not the American people. Finally, where in the Constitution when giving the guidelines for who is qualified to be President, does it state that tax returns must be released for public scrutiny? Neither does it require medical records to be released. Birth certificate is another story, because it is how you prove you were born a US citizen and that you meet the age criteria.

    Does anyone really care about these tax returns? If they were doing something illegal that showed up in their tax return, the IRS should be all over it. When they get indicted for tax fraud, then there is something to look at. You know that the IRS is in the Democrats back pocket and if they had any dirt from the tax returns, they would be exposing it. Get over it, Grow up, move on.

    Sovereignsoul: If you were trying to be sarcastic in your initial response as well as your second response, maybe you should do more reading on Johnathan Swift, because you didn’t do it very well.

    makingout: Did this girl do NOTHING? NO, she ran in an event, she PARTICIPATED. I agree that those at the VA that just stay out of trouble, should not be getting bonuses (ie 1st place ribbons), but should we withhold their paycheck entirely? NO, they did do something, even if it was just show up every day and answer the phone, or file paperwork, or clean the floors, or make food for the cafeteria. Because they did not excel above and beyond, they get their PARTICIPATION pay. If they had gone above and beyond and made a difference, then you are justified to give them a bonus (ie 1st place ribbon). Would you go back to work if your boss said, “if you work harder than everyone else I will pay you $1million this year, but if you come in 2nd or below, you get nothing. Would you work there? HECK NO!!! See, you are getting a participation ribbon every day you work, that is why you keep going back to work. Some day, you might get a bonus, then you may really step up your game. EBT cards are not even a participation ribbon, because they have done nothing to earn it. There is the problem, getting something for nothing. This girl ran, she did something. She did not sit on the sideline and then ask to be rewarded for doing nothing, she did something. It’s just unfortunate that you are like her dad and are trying to shoot her down for having done something, but not to your expectations, therefore, she is a loser and should not be acknowledged in any way.

    “awesome dad”?

    An awesome dad would have recognized that his little girl was showing him something that she was proud of. An awesome dad would have asked one simple question to that little girl, “Why did you get that?” Why are we all assuming that this little girl did not do anything to deserve this recognition. What if her answer was, “Dad I ran as hard as I could. I wanted to give up, because I wasn’t going to win, but I didn’t quit. I stuck with it. See, I got this because I stuck with it.”

    No, this awesome dad had an ego that said, if it aint #1, you don’t deserve it.

    My regards to this little girl.

    Armyof7- Of course he would not turn down the Bronze medal if he was awarded it, but he sure sounds like a macho man and builds up his ego by saying he would.

    Simple questions:

    Did this girl “participate” in the event?
    Did she win 1st, 2nd or 3rd?
    Did the ribbon she was awarded agree with where she finished in the event?
    What is the problem?

    People’s egos

    amendii- Did this girl sit and watch the others run to EARN her ribbon? Or did she go out there and run in a competition to EARN that ribbon? She DID EARN it. In your job, do you get paid the most? If not, why do you even collect a paycheck? If you don’t earn the most, you shouldn’t get anything, that will teach you to work harder.

    You say, “It is up to the friends of the child to tell that they tried their hardest”. Are you serious, this is not the role of a parent too? I feel for your children. “Sorry son, as a parent I have to tell you that you suck and I am disappointed in your dismal performance. If you want any encouragement, go talk to your friends, that’s their job.” Classy!!!

  • [-14] May 13, 2016 at 11:25am

    No, everyone needs a dad that would have taken that participation ribbon and said, “girl, I am proud of you for trying your hardest, this ribbon shows that you tried. I want you to keep trying. Because when we keep trying you get better and better. Eventually you can be the best. So keep trying harder and harder each time. You rock, girl”.

    Not, “Girl, you suck, this ribbon is garbage. If it doesn’t have a 1 on it, just give it back. Sorry, you suck. See that girl with the 1 on her ribbon? She is awesome. You should be like her.”

    “Winning isn’t everything but wanting to win is.” – Vince Lombardi
    Participation ribbons, 3rd place, 2nd place may not be a “winner”, but the recognition will at least give them the want to continue trying to get #1.
    All these people saying it’s 1st or nothing, are just trying to portray a “holier than thou” attitude to boost their egos that have failed in some way. What is wrong with giving praise and encouragement to those who don’t come in 1st? Are you afraid it will take away from your glory? By all means, celebrate the winner, but don’t kick the rest to the curb in doing so. Put your ego away. Grow up!!!
