    Remember when Global Warming was predicted to bring more, and worse, hurricanes?

    Hermine looms as first hurricane to make landfall in Florida in 11 years

    However, since it made landfall as a CAT I storm it didn’t break the major hurricane drought that’s been going on for more than a decade – no CAT III or greater storms have hit the U.S. since 2005.

    Prior to the current pause in major hurricanes striking the U.S. mainland, the longest pause had been the eight years between 1860 and 1869—146 years ago. NOAA has published its calculation of the categories of all hurricanes striking the U.S. going back to 1851.

    In the 164 years for which hurricane data has been collected, 72 have had at least one major hurricane. There have also been two periods of five-straight years (1915 throuhg 1919 and 1932 through 1936) where at least one major hurricane has struck they U.S. mainland each year.

    The last major hurricane to strike the U.S. was Hurricane Wilma in October 2005 over Southwest Florida.

    Thanks to Obama, the Democrats and complicit Republicans:

    National debt hits $19.5 trillion

    The national debt hit $19.5 trillion for the first time ever this week, a little more than seven months after it hit the $19 trillion mark.

    The debt clocked in at $19.51 trillion at the end of Wednesday, the Treasury Department reported Thursday afternoon. Precise debt figures on any given day are released on the following business day.

    The national debt hit $19 trillion for the first time ever on Jan. 29.

    When President Obama took office in early 2009, the total debt was $10.63 trillion, which means it has almost doubled under his watch.

    The Congressional Budget Office reported in August that the debt-to-GDP ratio will match levels not seen since 1950 by the end of the current fiscal year.

    The debt is the sum total of annual budget deficits, plus interest, and those annual deficits are soon expected to rise again in the coming years.

    President Obama has boasted of cutting the annual budget deficits by more than two-thirds over the last few years. But it was under his administration that those deficits soared north of $1 trillion, and only in the last few years did they return to the highest deficit levels ever seen under his predecessor, President George W. Bush.

    While he was a senator, Obama criticized Bush for presiding over those same deficit levels, and said they represented a failure of leadership on the part of Bush.

    And yet she didn’t even get a slap on the wrist – NOTHING, scott-free!

    FBI found extensive evidence Hillary emails violated federal records laws

    Though it was not their primary mission, FBI agents who investigated Hillary Clinton’s email collected significant evidence suggesting she and her team violated federal record-keeping laws, including persisting to use a private Blackberry and server to conduct State Department business after being warned they posed legal and security risks, government sources tell Circa.The evidence was compelling enough to convince FBI Director James Comey that the Clinton team had not complied with record-keeping laws and to cause at least one witness to raise their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination during an investigative interview, the sources said.

    In public, the FBI recommended not filing criminal charges against Clinton on national security grounds. But in private, the Bureau chose to defer to the State Department on whether to recommend anyone to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution on records law violations, the sources said, speaking only on condition of anonymity.

    Each email transmission of a government document that was not preserved or turned over to the State Department from Mrs. Clinton’s tenure could theoretically be considered a violation of the Federal Records Act, the main law governing preservation of government records and data.

    Other federal laws make it a felony to intentionally conceal, remove or destroy federal records as defined under the Act, punishable with a fine and imprisonment of up to three years. A single conviction also carries a devastating impact for anyone looking to work again in government because the law declares that any violator “shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.”

    Accounts from witnesses suggested the efforts to keep Mrs. Clinton’s government email communications on a device and server outside the reach of public records laws or congressional oversight were “systemic and intentional” and began as soon as Mrs. Clinton took office in 2009, one source told Circa.

    For instance, the sources said agents secured testimony and documents suggesting that Mrs. Clinton’s team:
    -Was informed in 2009 that she had an obligation under the records law to forward any government-related records contained in private email to a new record preservation system known as SMART but chose not to do so because her office wanted to keep control over “sensitive” messages.
    -Was specifically questioned by a technical worker who was involved with her private email server in the Clinton family home in New York whether the arrangement was appropriate for a government official under the federal records law. The worker was assured there were no problems.
    -Wanted to keep her private Blackerry email service because of fears a government email address would be subject to public scrutiny under the Freedom of Information Act.
    -Was aware that government officers complying with FOIA requests did not have access to search Mrs. Clinton’s private email for responsive records.
    -Persisted in allowing her to use private email to conduct State Department business even after a cable was sent under her name in 2011 to all diplomats worldwide urging them to stop using private email because of foreign hacking fears.
    -Allowed Clinton to keep using the private email system after after she personally received a 2011 presentation warning of dangers of the private email for government business.
    -Failed to preserve private emails from Clinton that clearly involved significant government business, including discussions with Army Gen. David Petraues, the Benghazi tragedy, meeting requests with foreign leaders and the State Department’s quadrennial policy and performance review.
    -Had prior reason from earlier legal cases involving their conduct to know that emails covering government business were legally required to be preserved and turned over to their agency and the National Archives.

    Logo’s ‘Gay Bachelor’ Reality Show Scrambles Over Reveal of Star’s Sex Worker Past

    “Nothing came up during the background check,” a person close to “Finding Prince Charming” tells TheWrap

    Gay news site Queerty noted its commenters were going “ballistic” about Seplveda’s casting, with some calling him “a disgrace to the community.”

    PLUS, important fact: Prince Charming WAS NOT GAY!

    On Tuesday, several gay blogs unearthed a scathing review written by one of Sepulveda’s alleged clients claiming Sepulveda wouldn’t meet with him because he was African-American. The discovery prompted celebrity blogger Perez Hilton to ask: “‘The Gay Bachelor’ Wasn’t Just A RentBoy In The Past… He Also Did Porn & Was Maybe Racist?!”

    Matt Bomer and Men Who Play Transgender Women Send a “Toxic and Dangerous” Message (Guest Column)

    GLAAD’s Nick Adams argues that Hollywood needs to let go of the idea “that putting a male actor in a dress, wig and makeup is an accurate portrayal of a transgender woman.”
    It’s been two years since Time magazine proclaimed a new era of inclusion in America with a May 2014 cover featuring actress Laverne Cox and the eye-catching headline: “The Transgender Tipping Point.” The groundbreaking Time cover came 10 months after Cox appeared in her breakout role as Sophia Burset on Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black. That’s the power of entertainment media — one outstanding performance by a charismatic and talented actress can accelerate change across an entire culture.

    Since then, trans people have begun to appear on reality shows like TLC’s I Am Jazz, E!’s I Am Cait, and in Strut, Oxygen’s upcoming show about trans models. Trans characters played by trans actors are beginning to appear in scripted TV shows like Amazon’s Transparent, Netflix’s Sense8, Freeform’s The Fosters, and CBS’ upcoming legal drama Doubt. And Tangerine, starring two trans actresses, was the indie film breakout hit of 2015, earning four Independent Spirit Award nominations and a GLAAD Media Award for outstanding film in limited release.

    And yet — in spite of the critical and commercial success of projects that put trans people front and center — Hollywood is having a very difficult time letting go of the idea that putting a male actor in a dress, wig and makeup is an accurate portrayal of a transgender woman.

    For more than 40 years, Americans have sat down in front of their TV screens or in movie seats and seen male actors “pretend” to be trans women. By casting Robert Reed, Terence Stamp, John Lithgow, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Tom Wilkinson, Lee Pace, Cillian Murphy, Liev Schreiber, Beau Bridges, Jared Leto, Eddie Redmayne, Steven Weber, Denis O’Hare and Walton Goggins as transgender women, viewers receive two strong and wrong messages: 1. that being transgender is an act, a performance, just a matter of playing dress-up; and 2. that underneath all that artifice, a transgender woman really is a man.

    See, the problem is both #1 and #2 ARE TRUE!

    Colin Kaepernick says the pigs on his socks were only meant to represent ‘rogue cops’

    The NFL is NOT a “free speech” zone. He’s making them look bad & should be punished for it.

    Colin Kaepernick made more news Thursday when photos of him wearing socks with pictures of pigs dressed like police officers began attracting attention.

    He also disrespected our military at the game tonight.

  12. Bodhisattva says:

    What moonbats have brought this country to:

    A former military couple is in jail, accused of sexually assaulting two children over several years in an effort to teach the kids about sex.

    Both the husband and wife are accused of “watching, coaching and instructing” the children on how to perform and participate in sex acts with the adults, according to arrest warrant affidavits.

    Jose Ernesto Ramos, and his wife, Annetta Theresa Ramos, allegedly confessed to some of the allegations in a 2014 interview with a Crimes Against Children detective.

  13. Bodhisattva says:

    A huge mistake – mark my words:

    A plan to create a state-run retirement program for nearly all private workers in California passed out of the Legislature late Wednesday and now awaits approval by Gov. Jerry Brown.

    But even if the governor signs the bill written by Senate leader Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles), which was opposed by some in the investment industry, the nearly 7 million workers eligible for the plan probaby won’t be able to start parking money in the retirement system until 2018.

    The Senate, on the last day of the two-year legislative session, approved Senate Bill 1234, which requires all California companies with at least five employees to either offer their own retirement savings plan or enroll workers in the new California Secure Choice Retirement Savings Program.

    Secure Choice would be structured as an individual retirement account but operate much like a 401(k), with a small percentage of every paycheck automatically diverted into the program unless workers take action to opt out.


    The name “secure choice”. The state will loot the system and the workers who use it will end up broke.

  14. Saxon Warrior says:

    #1 and #2 are indeed true, so they are NOT wrong messages. But we’re talking about moonbats here so they are wrong messages because moonbats hate the truth. The right message to a moonbat is always based on a lie.

    Between Louisiana and Mexico, Trump has already demonstrated that he is more presidential than Hillary.

  20. Mr. Freemarket says:

    In other words, those who predicted global warming are right again. (Of course had a major hurricane hit the US, that would also have made them correct.)

  21. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Spending money is the only thing that Obama is really good at.
    Just think how much he could have spent if he didn’t take off so much time for golf.

  22. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Hillary fired an ambassador in Africa for using a private email service for sending four emails. Her intent in using a private email server as a means to avoid government oversight and retention of incriminating emails is beyond question.
    Those who would excuse Hillary of these acts is not worthy of voting.

  23. TrojanMan says:

    Charles Manson is more presidential than Hillary. If Clinton sets the bar for what is presidential then it would need to go 6 feet under.

  24. Mr. Freemarket says:

    The problem is that finding someone who is actually transgendered and a good actor is probably impossible. And Hollywood has a difficult problem is making entertainment that people will actually pay to watch as is.

    One of the best “transgender” actors of all time was Flip Wilson.

    Oh wait…so he wasn’t actually transgendered? Who knew.

  25. KirklesWorth says:

    But yet you want Hillary…interesting…

  26. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Kaepernick should know that if some guys break into his home to steal his crap, at least he won’t have to call any cops to protect him or investigate the crime. He can live in a cop=free zone.

  27. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Just shows that having money and a public forum doesn’t make you smart.

  28. TrojanMan says:

    Nothing will convince you otherwise so keep living in your fantasy world.

  29. Mr. Freemarket says:

    And sometimes I will make a pass at one of her girlfriends.

  30. Mr. Freemarket says:

    A Marxist dressed up in a white robe is still a Marxist.
    Apologies in advanced to the Catholics who may be offended. You deserve better.

  31. KirklesWorth says:

    I don’t have to…you’ve already admitted it.

    TrojanMan: That’s too late. She was elected the moment Trump won the nomination which is why I have always told you that it does not matter who you vote for.

  32. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Here’s the problem with the illegal immigrants. It isn’t just a problem that you broke a law by coming here. The next problem is how are you going to work here? Where will you get a green card from? Where will you get ID that will let you pretend to be legal here?
    It is like telling your wife one white lie. It never stops with one white lie. Next thing you know, you are telling lie after lie and she is pointing a gun at you.

  33. TrojanMan says:

    Admitted what that this country is toast no matter who is elected? Yes i admit that. I admit that a Trump nomination secured a Clinton win because Trump is a horrible candidate. Would you like to take my words and twist them more to fit your false narrative?

  34. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Just because Hillary is totally unfit for office doesn’t make any of the other choices any better. It is like the difference between dog poop and moldy bread. Just because I wouldn’t eat one of them doesn’t make the other something I would get excited over.

  35. Kevcar says:

    In no way shape or form does what you posted support your statement that Trojan wants hillary to win.

  36. KirklesWorth says:

    Of course TrojanMan wouldn’t come right out and admit it – that’s why I have to make the case that he wants Trump to lose more than he wants Hillary to lose – so I have to accumulate his anti-Trump sentiment and other comments. LIke:

    TrojanMan: If the republicans have already lost by nominating Trump as you have said what would the purpose TO vote for him? Not voting Trump would send a clear message to the GOP we are tired or progressive RINO candidates.

    So there’s a “clear message” in that statement.

  37. KirklesWorth says:

    Kevcar also has your back, so I replied:

    Of course TrojanMan wouldn’t come right out and admit it – that’s why I have to make the case that he wants Trump to lose more than he wants Hillary to lose – so I have to accumulate his anti-Trump sentiment and other comments. LIke:

    TrojanMan: If the republicans have already lost by nominating Trump as you have said what would the purpose TO vote for him? Not voting Trump would send a clear message to the GOP we are tired or progressive RINO candidates.

    So there’s a “clear message” in that statement.

  38. KirklesWorth says:

    It’s fairly simple – if only so-called “conservatives” learned from past history:

    Not enough “conservatives” voted for McCain = Obama.
    Not enough “conservatives” voted for Romney = Obama.
    Not enough “conservative” votes for Trump = Hillary.

    What’s so difficult to comprehend? Are you saying things would be just as bad under Trump as Hillary when we know she will:

    1. keep 11 million illegal aliens
    2. no border enforcement
    3. Import millions more immigrants and “refugees”
    4. give healthcare to illegal immigrants
    5. give illegal aliens obtaining rights and citizenships
    6. increase gun control
    7. increase gun background checks
    8. ban “assault weapons”
    9. softer law enforcement
    10. expand Obamacare
    11. no school vouchers
    12. green energy debacles
    13. global warming nonsense
    14. ban offshore drilling ban
    15. ban Keystone pipeline ban
    16. spend on “stimulus”
    17. increas EPA regulations
    18. hike minimum wage
    19. progressive-liberal-socialist supreme court

  39. TrojanMan says:

    Lol that post in no way shape or form says that I want Clinton to win more than trump. Only trumpites….

    I’m saying the GOP has No intentions on giving us conservative candidates therefore stop voting GOP to force them to support actual conservatives. Next quote you want to twist….

  40. KirklesWorth says:

    So you are saying “Not voting Trump would send a clear message to the GOP we are tired or progressive RINO candidates” isn’t indicative of wanting Hillary to win? Interesting… Need another? How about:

    …The GOP needs to die because it is now a progressive party just a tad right of the democrat party. I am not voting progressive.

  41. TrojanMan says:

    “isn’t indicative of wanting Hillary to win? ” Correct.

    Yes the GOP either needs to give us actual conservatives or needs to die…. next…..

  42. KirklesWorth says:

    So you don’t want Trump to win, therefore you accept Hillary winning, QED.

  43. TrojanMan says:

    I do not want Clinton to win therefore Trump will win, QED.

  44. TrojanMan says:

    I see you modified your post to say “you accept” vs the original.

    “So you don’t want Trump to win, therefore Hillary Will win, QED..”

  45. KirklesWorth says:

    Well, we are talking your will to sacrifice the unborn in your attempts to defeat Trump, but I may as well continue with more things you’ve said:

    KirklesWorth: “You prefer a 100% liberal to a 50% liberal”

    TrojanMan: I prefer no liberal which is why I am not voting for either one.

    And since you obviously don’t know that Trump is only slightly liberal on Defense and International Issues, I will repost the graph that shows Trump is overall more conservative than liberal (with Romney as a comparison).

  46. KirklesWorth says:

    Correct. Obviously you don’t have the power to make Hillary win, so it seemed appropriate to correct it. Is that okay or should I issue an apology?

  47. Kevcar says:

    This quote supports your position better than your first choice. It’s interesting reading the exchange between you two and the best thing is – no name calling. Always the go to position for a weak argument.

  48. KirklesWorth says:

    Right. That’s why 762×51 changes his handle to avoid my blocks, and I respond to it once and then it gets blocked as well. Although truth be told, TrojanMan can get frustrated:

    TrojanMan: You claim to want to debate but you are really just a condescending bunghole troll. Its my fault for feeding your trolling. I will refrain from doing so.

  49. TrojanMan says:

    An apology would be nice but that will never happen. So i will fix mine as well.

    I do not want Clinton to win therefore i accept Trump winning.

  50. KirklesWorth says:

    The claim that “this country is toast” may be yours but not mine (yet). If the so-called “conservatives” would get off their duff and finally do some voting for a republican candidate, we may see some promise. Allowing Hilary to be elected would embrace the darkness.

    When you say “take my words and twist them more to fit your false narrative?”, am I misrepresenting what you say or taking them out of context? Please feel free to add context if you think it is necessary.

  51. KirklesWorth says:

    Sure you can get an apology – no problem. I apologize that I implied it would be TrojanMan’s fault if Hillary was elected. That was harsh and uncalled for, and I am sorry for the error. I have corrected my post to say that TrojanMan would accept Hillary winning, not cause it.

  52. TrojanMan says:

    Romney is a verifiable RINO and this chart shows he is more conservative that Trump. What does that make Trump?

  53. KirklesWorth says:

    It makes Trump moderately conservative. But since we got Obama instead of Romney, was that an acceptable concession for Romney’s RINO-ness, or have we learned something? How “conservative” will you be permitting Hillary’s unrestricted immigration and unrestrained abortions (not to mention the dozens of other progressive-liberal-socialist things to ruin our country)?

  54. TrojanMan says:

    Nice faux-apology. Your logic is deeply flawed. I will not accept a Hillary presidency. You are under the delusion that since i do not support Trump i must want Hillary to win even though time and time again i have stated i am not going to vote for her and do not want her to win. Therefore your obvious denial of such can only lead one conclusion, that you are indeed a Troll.

    You may have the last word.

  55. TrojanMan says:

    ” but not mine (yet)” At least you can admit that is a possibility.

    “Allowing Hilary to be elected would embrace the darkness.” See there you go. I am not voting for the bitch therefore i am not allowing anything.

    ” If the so-called “conservatives” would get off their duff and finally do some voting for a republican candidate” First i am not a republican but a conservative, second IMHO there is no republican candidate this year.

    “am I misrepresenting what you say or taking them out of context?” You are and you very well know that.

    “Please feel free to add context if you think it is necessary.” I have been, and it is only necessary for you. All others know exactly what i mean.

  56. Kevcar says:

    To be fair, we all get frustrated when trying to have a reasoned debate with someone from the opposite point of view. Especially when they disregard the point your trying to make without addressing the point your making. It’s like bait and switch. I think the Internet has done massive damage to reasoned discourse in this country. The “anonymity ” associated with the Internet brings out the worst in people, and yes I have seen it on both sides. You make a good point and all they do is call you names and cuss at you. Hardly productive.

  57. KirklesWorth says:

    Funny how nothing ever seems good enough for you. I guess that illustrates the all-or-nothing “conservatives” better than anything else.

    Sorry, but I don’t think you are unintelligent to believe that anything other than voting for Trump would hurt Hillary, so I will chalk it up to dis ingenuousness. Therefore, I challenge you to point out how lack of votes for Trump will end up with anything other than a Hillary presidency – especially considering the following:

    Not enough “conservative” voted for McCain = Obama.
    Not enough “conservative” voted for Romney = Obama.
    Not enough “conservative” votes for Trump = Hillary.

    Therefore, since I think you are smart enough to know about the inevitability, how you can justify not voting for Trump?

  58. KirklesWorth says:

    Thanks. It’s nice that people (especially people who value intelligence and reason over emotions like conservative do) can have differences with respect.

  59. TrojanMan says:

    Simple. Its my vote and i can do with it what I wish. If you cannot respect that you are no better than a liberal. It’s the democratic process after all and we all know how you revere that.

  60. KirklesWorth says:

    It’s an imperfect world and Trump could do something that would make him worse than Hillary…but not yet.

    “Allowing Hilary to be elected would embrace the darkness.” See there you go. I am not voting for the bitch therefore i am not allowing anything.

    Not choosing is still a choice. Actively trying to get Trump to lose while standing by while Hillary wins is hardly ideologically conservative. You wouldn’t be “conserving” rights but helping lose them on one hand and indifferently letting them be taken away on the other.

    “am I misrepresenting what you say or taking them out of context?” You are and you very well know that.

    “Please feel free to add context if you think it is necessary.” I have been, and it is only necessary for you. All others know exactly what i mean.

    I quoted you verbatim, not paraphrasing. If your comments are unclear or ambiguous, that isn’t my fault. Just because I post what you say and challenge it doesn’t mean it’s “out of context” or “misrepresenting” what you are saying. That would be like calling Trump a “progressive” when clearly he is not.

  61. KirklesWorth says:

    Then why are you attacking Trump? You are trying to influence others not to vote for Trump in an obvious attempt to sway the election to Hillary…whom you’ve already predicted as the winner.

  62. TrojanMan says:

    Yes you quoted me verbatim but apparently lack the mental capacity to understand it, therefore clarification is only needed for you.

  63. KirklesWorth says:

    Uh huh. It’s all my fault for my apparent “lack the mental capacity to understand it”. Did I need any clarification on these comments?

    TrojanMan: Everyone on this site who is in Trumps colon is a troll yes.

    TrojanMan: “live on your knees?” He lives on his knees now sucking the orange cock.

  64. Rex Kwon Do says:

    Thanks for clarifying your opinion of the American system of governance. Moldy bread and dog poop. Why not try another system?

  65. TrojanMan says:

    Broken record

  66. TrojanMan says:

    Lol IDK do you? Seems to be pretty clear. But if you need clarification I can provide.

  67. KirklesWorth says:

    Yes, you are – and your broken record is:

    Trump is a progressive
    Trump is a liar
    Trump contributed to democrats
    Trump is the same as Hillary
    Hillary has already been elected
    I despise Hillary but want to defeat Trump more
    The GOP is dead / needs to die
    Trump will lose on his own, but needs anti-Trump propaganda anyway
    Electing Hillary will ignite a “cleansing” of the country

    Did I get them all, or did you have some to add?

  68. KirklesWorth says:

    Proud of those are you? Very well.

  69. Torcer says:

    Finally! Some Good Polling News For Republicans In This Electoral Mess
    That said, there is a silver lining to all of this, at least for now. In a new USA Today poll where Hillary is leading Donald Trump by seven points, it appears down ballot Republicans may stave off some losses as Hillary supporters are looking to split their votes:

    In a nationwide USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll, a third of Clinton’s supporters, 32%, say they are “very likely” to split their votes, and another 20% say they are “somewhat” likely. Twenty percent say they are “not very likely” to split the ticket, and 23% say they’ll vote for Democratic candidates up and down the ballot.

    In contrast, a majority of Donald Trump supporters say they probably or definitely will vote only for Republicans. A third, 33%, say they plan to vote a straight GOP ticket up and down the ballot, and another 20% say they are “not very likely” to vote for Democratic candidates for other offices.

  70. TrojanMan says:

    Just curious. Do you compile your log in a spreadsheet, access database, Oracle? Use full text search for faster searching if you are using a CLOB field for example. Indexing helps a lot too. Too much indexing will degrade the speed of updating records in a table. If you need tips on database architecture I can help.

  84. Torcer says:

    It is the contention from the Trumpers that supposedly anything that denigrates Trump’s efforts helps Comrade Clinton – so we should look at it from that point of view with regard to Trump.

    Morning Joe: Trump’s ground game in Florida is ABSOLUTELY STAGGERING

    Morning Joe weighs in on Trump’s Florida ground game, which is pretty much non-existent, saying it’s absolutely staggering:

    Trump is making a big mistake in Florida. … @JoeNBC: His ground game is ‘absolutely staggering.’

    Chris Cillizza puts the primary vs the general in context, pointing that Trump will need to get almost 4 times the votes he got in the primary in order to win. In the primary Trump got around 16 million votes. In the 2012 general election, Romney got 60 million and he lost the election.

    The point is, as Cillizza argues, is the one thing they know about getting people to vote in general elections is you must have a ground game in order to convince enough people to come vote for you.

    Now Trump, I think, doesn’t have a ground game in Florida because he doesn’t think he needs one. He acts like cult leader who thinks everyone is just going to come out and vote for him on election day because they think he’s so amazing or something.

  85. KirklesWorth says:

    But, what’s the difference to you? Since Hillary is your endgame, why should you care if it comes at the expense of Trump supporters or not? Plus, your concerted effort to defeat Trump should not be passed over without credit.

    The definition of the word
    Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.

    Free people are not equal. Equal
    people are not free. (Think this one over and
    over…makes sense!)

    “A gun is like a parachute. If you
    need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.”

    Here are six Conundrums of
    socialism in the United States of America:

    1. America is capitalist and greedy
    – yet half of the population is subsidized.

    2. Half of the population is
    subsidized – yet they think they are victims.

    3. They think they are victims –
    yet their representatives run the government.

    4. Their representatives run the
    government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.

    5. The poor keep getting poorer –
    yet they have things that people in other countries only dream

    6. They have things that people in
    other countries only dream about – yet they want America to be more like those
    other countries.

    Think about it! And that, my
    friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century. Makes you wonder who
    is doing the math.

    These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:

    1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL
    Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun
    owners by the actions of a few lunatics.

    Funny how that works. And here’s
    another one worth considering…;

    2. Seems we constantly hear about
    how Social Security is going to run out of money. But we never
    hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money ! What’s interesting is the first
    group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t.

    Think about it…..and Last but not
    least :

    3. Why are we cutting benefits for
    our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level
    lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments or
    benefits to illegal aliens.

    Am I the only one missing

  91. PhiloTFarnsworth says:

    IT’s A FACT”

  92. Torcer says:

    Please note that as usual KirklesWorth is having trouble dealing with the reality of the situation.

    Instead of dealing with the FACT that Trump is not doing everything he can to defeat Comrade Clinton..

    Hmm could we say that his lack of effort ‘should not be passed over without credit.’?

  93. KirklesWorth says:

    I can’t believe how dumb you act, so it must be disingenuousness. I’m just dealing with the FACT that you only have a Hillary inevitability on your mind, and you are attacking Trump to facilitate it (thus giving you credit for your hard anti-Trump work). And to back it up, here is the graph on how much more hard work you are providing to defeat Trump…care to challenge me on my data?

  94. Ol' Uncle Lar says:

    Just because you don’t take an interest in government, doesn’t mean the government won’t take an interest in YOU.

  95. TED says:

    YOU bet’cha!!

  96. Bodhisattva says:

    I don’t have a problem with your points, but the one fact you failed to mention is we have a choice of 2 New York liberals. Trump may be running as a Republican, but for all the hype from the left – well in fact the very things they complain about, any truth to their complaints anyway (is there any?), is what shows how un-Republican he is.

  97. Mr. Freemarket says:

    We should try another system. One in which the government has to act within the limits of the constitution and where politicians are held to their oaths of office.

  98. KirklesWorth says:

    It is what it is. And saying “we have a choice of 2 New York liberals” is over-simplifying what I keep posting about how different they actually are.

  99. Bodhisattva says:

    True – there are some differences. And I am over simplifying it.

    However, there are some legitimate concerns about Trump which, also admittedly, have been somewhat exaggerated here.

    Still, no need to start tracking my posts – I’ll say again that while I’m not ardent Trump supporter I realize that stopping Hillary is the most important goal even if it means risking 4 years of Trump to do it. I’m hoping we get another alternative before November but I’m a realist and know that is unlikely at best.

  100. Bodhisattva says:

    Trump certainly did do well in Mexico, though that’s not the way the Mexicans or the press are spinning it.

  101. KirklesWorth says:

    You haven’t been attacking Trump supporters and cloaking your intentions. You have always demonstrated your integrity.
