I think Mr. Trump used a poor choice of words, inadvertantly insulting many vets who served honorably. I think he had every right to pound McCain as a loser and a squishy panderer to illegal fence hoppers. I happen to be refreshed by Trump’s brashness and ability to throw a combination haymaker when one of his enemy’s hit below the belt. I also enjoy that Mr. Trump calls a spade a spade instead of pussyfooting And parsing every word, a-la Bush and Clinton. If we elect this man, we are electing a guy that will say many things off the cuff and at times swallow his foot. But Id much rather that than the rehearsed doublespeak that has to go through panels of pundits to beinterpreted on Sunday news shows. I will not hold that comment against Trump. McCain deserved a smackdown for calling decent honorable Americans who are searching for a candidate to get behind as “crazies.” But he chose the wrong insult, IMO.
Donald Strumpet and her RINO supporters have a history of hating and slandering war veterans, the disabled and POWs. Donald Strumpet and her supporters are hateful, ignorant trash. They spam hate, lies, ignorance and slander.
--- "... poor choice of words, inadvertantly insulting many vets ..."
Thanks... but no, I don't want a president with his finger on the nuclear button who is prone to using "poor choice of words" and diplomatically "inadvertently insulting many" of our important world nations that we're trying to engage in REAL issues with.
Trump is a joke. He's a joke.

It pains me deeply to say that I think your post and assessment of what awaits us is spot on.

These damned b@stards. And the mainstream media and congress just stand by and watch it go down without saying a word. God help us.
The media is more than just complicit at this point; the inbreeding between media and regime alone is passe now.
I said this almost a year ago on this site and it bears repeating:
This is part and parcel of overwhelming the system. In the system of news reporting, this is obviously reported because you read it here ;)
It is simply overwhelmed by other, more salacious news.
The object is to overwhelm the complete system that is the individual, YOU. How much time, energy, outrage does one expend on arguing, complaining, refuting before you as an individual are overwhelmed by the voluminous insanity of it all?
Stay sane, my friends.

To the dufus who created the headline: What the hell is an “ALOGRITHM”
Anything like the AlGoreithm? He did invent this thing, ya know.

One day, when the economic meltdown hits and this house of cards comes crashing gloriously down, then I believe the blinders will be yanked off of 51% of America who went from comfortably and blissfully fat and ignorant to broke and pan-handling. This country will mourn how badly they were taken and deceived, even when the truth was slapping them across the face every other day with scandals and demonstrable lies.
America is the theme park of a truly seductive and evil spiritual entity.

Well, you know you gotta winner when the NY Times slimes you.
This is a good man, a principled man. Unbelievably powerful and moving speaker. I hope his political career takes off, but sadly, I think the American system is so rife with progressivism, it will see to it the this good man ends up on the fringes, on the outside looking in, rather than front and center of our American morass, where he could do much to reverse the bleeding in our broken country…

You can’t unload 11 rounds into a dude with a knife (or an object “consistent” with knife). Even if he had a knife, the cop is a safe distance so that the knife presents little, if any danger to him whatsoever. On top of that he’s lying on the ground and the cop is still putting caps in him. Now, if the thug is firing at you with a gun, sure, fire 100 rounds into him, who cares, he deserves it. This was senseless, I don’t care what the guys wrap sheet was. Totally unnecessary. Cop should not only be fired, he should be jailed.

To be criticized by Bill Maher is a truly badge of honor.
I don’t hate Mr. Maher. I pity him. I pity the masses that have bought into his vitriol the world calls harmless humor. Imagine being Bill Maher and standing before the throne of the Almighty. This man will be dead in 30 years. That day is coming, Bill.
I pray Mr. Maher’s eyes are opened before his miserable, worthless existence ends.

I don’t know how any human being could be looking forward to any of the predictions of this futurist.
I don’t at all argue that humans have made astonishing discoveries and inventions that have made our lives easier and more convenient. But humans, as they have done for ages, have taken things designed/intended for good and human progress and twisted them into tools of evil that either oppress/enslave people or create societal perversions that destroys civilizations from within.
Whether it’s atomic energy, the internet, microchips, biotechnology, information technology etc., humans will always think of ways to pervert what is meant for good, and turn it on the masses as either tools of war, or population control, or extreme invasions of privacy.
Believe me, it’s just a matter of time before humankind enslaves itself and then destroys itself.
The God of the universe, however, is greater than anything the most skilled and intelligent among us can construct with their hands. I am thankful He is in control. I feel badly for the folks who do not have the hope of salvation, because they live in an age where they will be subjected to the very real evil that comes with exponential knowledge combined with human wickedness.

You found yourself a new fan.
The party of John Boehner is on death’s doorstep, a withering, impotent dinosaur. In two years time (or less) the GOP will be irrelevant. Thank you for not abandoning your constitutional convictions, and keeping your promise of fiscal sanity to those who elected you, unlike the Boehner-controlled sellouts that share the same bed as the progressives.
Your time will come. I just pray the good people of this country survives the world financial holocaust that now approaches us as certain as the night follows the day.

The hell with John Boehner.
If we wanted a democratic house, with a tax and spend speaker, we would have elected one.
Grow a set of balls, GOP. If you sign up with the Dems for raising taxes and it implodes on the country, like we all know it will, then the GOP will be implicit in the downfall along with the Left, and there will be nothing that distinguishes them in any future election. By standing your ground and refusing to budge on taxes, and doing the RIGHT thing, you separate yourself from the money-printing lunacy that is the status quo.
Damn this country is circling the drain in the porcelain fixture.

Westboro Church is an abomination. Who exactly do these guys hope to reach or persuade with their message? The .0001% of the fringe?
I am a follower of the teachings of Jesus. Jesus loved and had compassion on thieves, prostitutes, and criminals who were enslaved and mired in their sinfulness. When he miraculously healed and ministered to the sick, he told them (warned them) to go and leave their sinful ways for good. But he did so in a loving and gentle way. As has been been posted many times here: Love the sinner. Hate the sin.
These guys think they will get some great reward in the end because they are so persecuted (and deservedly so). But in all truth these Westboro jokers are just as lost and deceived as the people they condemn.

Perhaps, Cornell, you ought to brush up on your Spanish and move to Spain, where your policies are more widely embraced. And if you go, please don’t come back.

Very disappointed in 60 minutes, burying this uncomfortable admission until a couple days before the election. They used to be better than this. It is amazing how the press falls all over themselves to protect Obama. It is truly sinister and demonic the lengths they go to not report the whole truth.
Of course, if this was George Bush or (insert name of any conservative here), then nothing is sacred.
I’m so sick and tired of the double standard. The network press simply cannot be trusted to tell the entire truth anymore.

THE JERK: “Listen, we’re becoming a nation of lazy, obese, intellectually challenged, bodily modified, tattooed, primitive, looters, moochers and takers. We are living through counter-Darwinism, reverse evolution, cultural suicide. These losers are nearing critical mass in our population. When they hit that critical mass, our way of life is finished. It’s only a matter of time. This election, or the next. Welfare societies have no other result.”
Sadly, I agree with Jerk. It’s not a question of if we reach critical mass; it’s only a matter of when. If we elect Mitt Romney to office Tuesday, we can but only delay the inevitable in a handout-addicted society that calls right wrong, and wrong right. I am nearly certain that re-electing the status-quo will be the final nail in the coffin for what once was the great US of A.

I could only imagine looking down at the earth from 23 miles in the air, the toes of my shoes hanging off the step.
I thought my bungee jump from 150 feet in the air at the local fair was terrorizing. But this? I would have hurled in my jump suit.
You, Felix, are one really crazy dude. Well played nonetheless.
