What’s missing here…o, yah; Trump stories. ( Really need to make this a daily feature and stop trying to ignore it)

I would like to think that there would eventually be “Trump burnout” as people get tired of seeing and hearing his antics everyday, but I don’t know. Hell’s Kitchen has been on for like 15 years now.

Interesting week involving interaction with Europeans here, particularly Italians, Greeks and Bulgarians. Concensus, things are very bad in Europe because of their corrupt governments. It is a “dangerous” place. They are extremely proud of the beauty of their countries, their love for the traditions and very sad for the conditions driving those that can, out.

Their observation is that we can’t step back and see that the U.S. is going down that same road slowly with a choice of a crazy man or a corrupt woman. Getting free from corruption is the more “impossible”.

If you are depressed about the state of our government around here, this should make you feel better:

Not sure I see the issue? Care to explain what is so scandalous about these emails? Maybe there’s an article out there from someone other than Putin’s favorite financial blog.

If you don’t see something wrong with the contents in the article I linked, then keep kidding yourself. The Clinton Foundation asking favors of the Clinton State Department? Two months in? She hadn’t even had real time to familiarize herself with the 7th Floor. Is there not even the appearance of a wee bit of conflict of interest? Her staffers assisting Bill’s? Even if they used their own time, one better do a FOIA request to see if they put in for Annual Leave on the days in question. Go ahead and parse those words. Build the defense. It might… Read more »

Our country is strong enough to withstand this sort of undermining.

False equivalence. Who would treat the face of day to day rantings and subsequent explanations of an egotist absent the temperament, knowledge or experience to lead the US government with much respect. The negativity, obstructionism and persecution complex of a large minority if not majority within an overall minority GOP is running the GOP into the ground at the national level. Much of the GOP’s current power hinges on the distribution of voters—Democrats being more concentrated that Republicans—and a national system that currently favors red state over blue representation.

Trump could win and never leave NY if he would put some stops under his cannons and focus on the direction he is shooting.
Doesn’t look good as corrupt Hillary has some pearls to toss to the masses.
