    "ENTITLEMENT" (Welfare) MY BUTT

    Employed Americans paid into Social Security [and Medicare] with every paycheck.

    Our benefits aren't some kind of charity or handout!

    Check out what Conservative/Republican/Tea Party members of Congress take in:

    Free Health care for them and their families
    Outrageous retirement packages
    167 days of PAID vacation
    Unlimited paid sick says

    Now THAT'S welfare.

    And this Republican/Conservative Congress has the nerve to call Social Security and Medicare, entitlements?

    OCCUPY DEMOCRATS

    Vote Democratic, vote Blue if you are sick of their poop, and disgusted with these Conservative/Republican/Tea Party "leaders."

    How does Conservative/Republican/Tea Party/Ronald Reagan/Trump's "trickle down" theory work again?

    First, the 1% at the very top of the money chain gets all the money.

    And then what?

    That's it.

    Now it's being reported on Fox by a Ret. General that Obama ran guns from Benghazi to Syria before the consulate attack.
    Hillary was the Sec. of State.

    Go ahead and tell me again how great Obama is, quietwolf.

    Hillary's numbers have never increased; they continue to slowly decline every time she opens her mouth. Maybe the reality of what she's done to people and the lies she's told are coming home to roost. The declining numbers don't mean more popularity. She's afraid to debate Bernie in California too. Wait until the ads for the General Election come out after the Primary. Trump has spent a fraction of what Hillary has had to spend and he's had more air time and publicity than he ever thought possible. Trump is playing the Dems and the liberal media for the fools they've been all along. Very interesting election cycle this go around.

    Said one voter about Romney, "Now he seems like Mandela."

    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In a sign of voters’ shifting perspectives about Presidential hopefuls, a new survey reveals that Americans are deeply nostalgic for a Republican candidate who only wanted to screw over forty-seven per cent of them.

    In interviews conducted across the country, voters expressed wistfulness and even a deep longing for a man who was indifferent to the fates of nearly half the nation’s residents.

    “When he was running, it seemed like a bad thing that he didn’t care whether forty-seven per cent of the country lived or died,” said Tracy Klugian, of Akron, Ohio. “Now I realize we were being too picky.

    Remembering those on Memorial Day:

    Some gave all

    Some dodged--Here is a short list of Conservatives/Republican Haters and Chicken Hawks who crawled under a rock when the shooting started:

    Mitch Romney

    [Fascist/Racist] Donald Trump

    [War Criminal] Dick Cheney

    [NRA Dedicated Crazy Racist] Ted Nugent

    [Racist Loony] Rush Limbaugh

    [Crazy Wife Abuser] Sean Hannity


    It's not so much about the dodging, it's the dodging then calling for war so other people's kids can die.

    Hey troll, since you are such a patriot, what branch of the armed forces did you serve in? I joined the Navy when I was seventeen, how about you, where did you serve? When I served the only thing you received was the satisfaction of knowing you were doing the right thing and a honorable discharge.

    What would FoxNews say if a DEMOCRATIC presidential candidate's wife was a former centerfold nude model?

    Whose nude pics could be found with a simple GOOGLE search?

    What would the say in the megachurches?

    So why is Melania Trump getting a free pass?

    The hypocrisy stinks to high heaven!

    Occupy Democrats



    And the "liberal media" did the same with Bush#2's binge drinking daughters while he was president, ignoring incidents of one or two of them barfing outside of a bar in South America. His daughters were on one of their drug/alcohol binges. And the "liberal press" ignored all their other drinking/useless escapades, as well.

    Compare that to President Barack Obama's daughter Malia Obama, scrutinized by the "liberal press," ready to attend Harvard.

    Seriously is right. 

    I don't know when or where Trump said this as i've never heard it. It is possible he, as a leader, is going to uphold the Constitution and the will of the people instead of his own power-hungry agenda. He now may not oppose those things as it has become clear our liberals are for porous borders and easing punishment for criminals. 

    After all, Obama and Hillary have a track record of having their positions "evolve".

    Yes, seriously.
    You are correct not knowing when or where Donald Trump would have commented on his support for assault weapons ban, that is.
    However, you can read for yourself at http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/09/19/trump-latest-policy-paper-marks-departure-on-gun-control.html
    As for the evolution of thoughts/positions. I’m sure as I have aged my thoughts and positions have evolved. However, my concepts have remained the same.

    A Conservative/Republican will brag through out a restaurant dinner how rich he is, his cars, his babes, his home by the beach, making sure the waitresses overhear.

    Then right before the bill arrives, he will disappear into the restroom and then into the night.

    Check it out Gimme-Gimmefolks and diaperrash, and Trumpanzees, one of your Conservative/Republicans, Toxic Orange Baldy Trump's son, Junior, is asking furin' nations for handouts, welfare and entitlements for shyster dad.

    Here is one response and it's a gem:

    Dear Donald J. Trump Jr.

    Quite why you think it appropriate to write emails to UK parliamentarians with a begging bowl for your father's repugnant campaign is completely beyond me.
    Given his rhetoric on migrants, refugees and immigration, it seems quite extraordinary he would be asking for foreign nationals for money; especially people who view his dangerous divisiveness with horror.
    The U.S. elections are a matter for the American people, but I do send my warm hope that they reject your father fundamentally at the ballot box, not just to protect and improve the cohesion in society, to stop his corrosive othering of immigrants and for the protection of hard fought women's rights in the U.S. but also, selfishly, for world security, and international relations. The thought of his reactionary type of politics and apparent ignorance of world affairs having access to a seat at the world table is both surreal, and terrifying.

    The above is a long way to say No and do not contact me again.

    Sincerely,

    Natalie McGarry
    Member of Parliament for Glasgow East

    Quietwolf - you're getting topics confused. Is that instability thing acting up again?

    Heard a panel on CNN discuss Trump's casino in NJ and the bankruptcy. One of the panel said even with the bankruptcy, Trump put Atlantic City on the map and made it a great destination for most of the 90's and beyond. Kind of surprising coming from the Clinton News Network.
    See - even in failure the Republicans make things better.

    "If you define success as building a sustainable long-term business that benefits you and others I think he failed abjectly," Kramer said. "If you define success as being scrappy and doing everything you can do to remain personally solvent and live to make money another day? Well Donald Trump may have been very successful in Atlantic City from that viewpoint."

    Interestingly enough Organized Crime has also profited heavily by Altantic City's success, a legacy long established before now. Even at Atlantic City's "low points" Organized Crime flourished and those who survived the lowest points had their help in doing so.

    Trump's exwife says she'll support him and thinks he will win. Doesn't sound like someone who was treated poorly.
    Trump's also been married for 18 years. About 50% or marriages fail. About 60%of second marriages fail.
    In other words, you are like listening to the used car sales person. All hot air and will lay down and do anything to convince you what they say is true.

    The childish school-yard name calling is nothing more than hot air.

    It sure looks like Melania Trump copied her speech from Michelle Obama

    http://www.vox.com/2016/7/19/12221566/melania-trump-michelle-obama

    There’s no explanation (yet) for how this happened. Certainly big time speeches like this aren't written solo. And they tend to be vetted and edited by the campaign. Unfortunately for Trump, before the speech, she told NBC's Matt Lauer: "I wrote it...with a little help as possible."

    CNN reported that Melania Trump had been working with a speechwriter "for the last five to six weeks, honing her speech."

    And there’s more;

    Regarding the Art of the Deal by Donald Trump

    Although Mr. Trump claims to be the author of the best business book of all time, Howard Kaminsky, the former head of Random House, which published “The Art of the Deal,” begged to differ.
    “Trump didn’t write a postcard for us!” he told The New Yorker.

    Mr. Trump pushed back against the accusation that he had little role in the production of the book, telling the magazine, “I wrote the book. It was my book.”

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/19/us/politics/trump-book-tony-schwartz.html?_r=0

    As for Mr. Schwartz, Mr. Trump called him and expressed disappointment at how disloyal he had been. “Have a nice life,” Mr. Trump said, according to Mr. Schwartz, before hanging up.

    Like I said, sometimes you can’t make this stuff up.

    Somewhere down the line reality blurs for these two.
