Thanks for response.  I am glad you like it.  I was just wondering if it is safe there and one hears about the turmoil because of the drop in oil as in other OPEC countries that cannot afford low prices as can the Arab countries.

"As one pastor (who I will leave unnamed) put it, “if we elect this man to the White House, the first time Christians disagree with him, we will get everything that’s coming to us.”

I agree.  This is a very real concern.

Sure many of us can like him now.   But what if we become the target for him (once he no longer needs us).  When we are called crude names the honeymoon will end fast.

He is a very big risk.  His biographer was on cable the other day and more or less stated how in his deals that went bad he always came out better than everyone else.  And if he starts to lose he turns tail and runs.

If what is good for him is consistently what is good for America that we are in "good company".  If we get a divergence however, we will be left with all the debt.

Mark Levin rightly questions the sudden coordinated attacks on Cruz by fellow Republicans including many time loser Dole and a warming to Trump.  Did Trump make a deal with the establishment?

"Why does that not seem to matter to anyone / everyone conservative who wants to win?  I don't know.  Hard to say it is still too early for polls to matter.

Good questions.  I can only guess that people feel that when Trump has a chance to go up directly against the (C)rat he will punish her.

The elites in Davos are aghast at Trump but not Sanders only makes me want to vote more for Trump frankly.

I don't believe the polls anyway that Sanders is so ahead of Trump.  Just not true.  No way.

Got to laugh when we here the DESPERATE Clinton mob calling Bern a socialist.  Why just recently they blew those names off.  Slutty Schultz couldn't even tell Chris Matthews, no less, the difference between a Dem and a Socialist.  Even Hillary is on record fo zipping her mouth at the question.  The Clintons are really clowns.  Unfortunately so many fall for their crap.

Of course the (C)rats are out in force making this into a national political issue against the Republican governor.  I have not heard that while 8,000 plus were "exposed" only 45 or so have tested positive elevated lead levels.   I don't hear Hillary saying that Brock refused to declare a state of emergency as requested by the Governor.  While this warrants and immediate reaction, cause for concern, and study, this is not the disaster the Dems want to make this out to.  Here we go with the class actions.

117  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / What I already posted on: January 21, 2016, 10:48:12 AM
I read in "Once Upon a Time in Russia" a read I recommend, how British intelligence traced the radioactive polonium from Litvinenkos' laced tea at a restaurant to the airport and essentially the border of Russia at which point their investigation was not allowed to proceed by the Russian authorities.  Only 3 countries in the world can even make this stuff.   To think Putin did not have a hand in this would mean total ignorance of his authority, power, and control in Russia.   Litvinenko was an outspoken critic of Putin.   Remember,  He was in London at the time of his murder.   So others reading this board agreed with me and decided it is time to revisit this murder:


http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/22/world/europe/alexander-litvinenko-poisoning-inquiry-britain.html?_r=0

PS :  I love Putin's patriotism towards his country and people, and wish we had the same here, but I don't respect his brutal thuggish methods.   Rumors are he is one of the richest men in the world.

She must have some sort of personality disorder.

Narcissistic?

Psychopathic?

I am not sure but she ain't normal.

I remember reading a book on psychopaths.  One trait they have is they lie without any conscience and are perfectly comfortable lying even when everyone in the room knows they are lying and they know everyone knows they are lying.  They just will not stop.

This is her.

Well, we have said before she will have to be literally dragged out of the race kicking and screaming like a banshi before she will get off the damn stage.

I do notice Bush attacks adds making Rubio look like a flip flopper.  Supposedly he thinks he can consolidate the establishment vote under his heading.

"It’s difficult to see how these inaccurate responses could have been simple mistakes, because the IG report demonstrated that many people who were demonstrably aware of Clinton’s secret private email server chose to feign ignorance."


"That’s essentially what happened during the first stage of Judicial Watch’s pursuit of Benghazi documents, too. The State Department claimed it could find no further responsive emails, the case was closed… and then reopened after the existence of Clinton’s secret mail server was revealed."

Sounds like the Copyright office.  Pull records and make them disappear or switch around then when anyone complains they feign ignorance and claim that you are mistaken and if one shows them evidence they claim it was all just a mistake and find the material.  (if not switched)

I called Judicial Watch and do not recall who I spoke to but he believed everything I said without batting an eye and said that is par for the course.  They were sympathetic but unable to help me

No one in government is held accountable and all I can say is THANK GOD for Judicial Watch.  Without them EVERY dirty speck of corruption gets swept under the rug.

It's disgusting.   Government employees can get away with little to no accountability like no others.

well I posted on the other thread no one except Christy answered the questions on the national debt or social security shortfalls.

The debt is to me the biggest threat the US faces.  If capitalism cannot address this we are in for a big mess to say the least.

I thought Cruz sounded bad on NYC but I thought it ironic that Trump was criticizing him for being insulting.

Other than that Christy was decent as was Kasich though we know they are conciliators.

Bush just cannot accept he is done.

138  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Re: Political Rants & interesting thought pieces on: January 15, 2016, 08:49:05 AM
I saw most of the debate last night. 

My biggest concern was when some candidates were asked about how they would solve the national debt and social security debts everyone but one sidestepped the issues.

I don't recall Christy commenting on the debt but he does have a plan to save social security one trillion. 

To me this is the largest threat to the US.   The progressive debt problems.   And no one (except for the one exception) even answered the questions and both moderators who were otherwise, I felt did a good job, pressed for answers.   

Indeed every candidate on that stage should have been forced to deal with those 2 issues.

 
139  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / 2 issues seem hard to keep separate. Citizenship and eligibility for President on: January 14, 2016, 10:47:43 AM
I cannot agree with the proposal that anyone who is a citizen for 14 years and renounces any previous sovereign citizenship or loyalty is eligible.

The conclusion that this discriminates the rights of a foreign born citizen of their rights  is a big stretch.

Cited as justification is the smaller world we live in with migration being common etc.

This is exactly the reason we cannot allow someone to come here from somewhere else and after 14 years trust them to "renounce" previous allegiance and thus be able to be President.

I am not clear.  Examples given include citizens who live abroad and have a baby.   Levin keeps citing this with the further extreme of the citizen being military personnel,   Well what if that person goes to another country and becomes a citizen of that country?  Well if they can keep dual citizenship that may be ok.  But what if he/she doesn't?

From the opposite point of view what if a citizen from another country is here on business, or pleasure and happens to give birth here.  Is that not ridiculous that that person's baby is automatically a citizen?

The logic can be applied to someone here illegally.  There child can become President.  Is that not absurd?

Perhaps the citizenship issue should be better decided upon.  However we know full well the leftist justices will support interpretations along party lines.

Jus sanguinis

I just looked this up.  This is the right to citizenship by since one or both parents are citizens.

But the professor quoted in the article states this was not (at least in his opinion) the 'intent' of the founders.

Except through the father's side (which sort of makes sense in the 18th century when women did not have the right to vote) but not the father's side.
If his interpretation is correct than Cruz would not be a natural born citizen with regard to the original intent of the writers of the Constitution.

I don't know if the amendments specifically address this.

I haven't heard Levin's take on this interpretation.   As much as I like him he does sound a bit hypocritical on this.   Our side should not be blindly hypocritical.

If valid questions can be brought up about McCains or Obamas or anchor babies citizen status than the same goes for "our" guys.

Anyone notice the burlap bag she is wearing?  There is something very socialist about her latest attire.   I vaguely recall seeing futuristic movies with the President wearing these little Chairman Mao like garbs.  That is what she is wearing now.   She changed her look fro one of an early Americana like pantsuit with the scarf around the neck to look like one of the old presidential portraits to a socialist's garb
.
Must be to steal back some of Bernie's communist hoards.   She is just an average comrade like you and me of course.
