Seems like New Yorkers , being NYers, are giving Cruz the proverbial finger for his comments about "NY values" in one of the debates.

153  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Science, Culture, & Humanities / 15 ft gator on: April 06, 2016, 03:26:45 PM
Gators up to 12 feet are very big.  Some of the old timers get to 13 or 14 but 15 ft must as big as they get.  Nile or Australian crocs get bigger though. Okeechobee , Florida is like another world.  It is a small town in the center of Florida by the big lake we always see on a map of the state.  I used to drive through there every week.  For fishing fans it is very relaxing.  They have rodeos there too.

I bet this gator could have taken down the boa snakes now endemic in Florida.  Two apex animals.

"I pay for the Twins stadium because the team is a 'public entity' but can't see a game televised."

No one can convince me that taxpayers should subsidize professional sports team.  Something wrong in Denmark.

"Paid TV made sense to me as an alternative to commercials."  Most of my cable shows have loads of commercials. 

I just signed up for Levin TV at $59/ yrs.  I'll let the board know after I check it out how it is.

"where will they post the secret service protection in relation to her cell?   Will it affect her acceptance speech if she skypes it in wearing an orange jumpsuit?"

One could imagine she will run her mafia organization from jail .  The SS will be used to smuggle out covert orders to her soldiers.  The Clinton Foundation will have her daughter run day to day operations under Chelsea, Bill will remain the "front man" and Hill will still call all the big shots from jail.  Just let the guards and SS in on the action.  That's all.

Now one can be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors.  But is there any Constitutional guidelines on a convicted felon from running for office.  They cannot vote but can they run for office?  President?

Hat tip to Mark Levin's Conservative Review.  About 35 % of the electoral votes are from states that would not allow Trump to run (in those states) due to "sore loser" laws.  That is to prevent someone who ran in the primary from running in a third party.  I never knew this.  So Trump could go 3rd party but only in states that would total about 65% of the electoral college:

 "It is Democrats who are trying to inject social issues into the campaign.  In this case, Chris Matthews pressing DT on abortion when it hasn't been an issue this year."

I was saying last night that Trump made a grave error in not being ready for Matthews to press him on this or similar social issue.  Of course he questions every Republican he can on this or as Doug points out the gay rights stuff.

He fell right into the leftist trap.  Hook line and sinker and he is now squirming on the ground on the shore line while the left , including Hillary is ready to chop his head off and cook him for dinner.

That said Trump also stated that there should be a punishment for women if "it were made illegal".

And naturally the MSM left out the second part of this with him stating women should be punished for abortion on every headline in EVERY news media outlet.  At least CNN does point out that he was "thinking out loud" a topic he apparently hasn't thought through and give him a little leeway.

"Yes, this is just gossip."

OTOH everything she is claiming fits the profile to a tea.    
Even the part about Chelsea being conceived as a political calculation.   Would anyone doubt that this does sound just like everything we know about both of them?

Hillary certainly has some sort of personality disorder.  I don't know if it is psychopathic or narcissistic ?  There are at least features of each.  While it is true that there are a higher percentage of psychopaths in the prison vs the general population it is also true that the most are not murderers like in the slasher movies.  Her being on the wrong side of the law is characteristic.   Wish we had a psychiatrist on the board to give a better opinion.

The problem is that it is hard if not impossible which ones harbor a hatred of the US, Christians, and Jews.

*****Deceit and power work in Hillary Clintonís favor

Hillary Clinton speaks during a rally at Rainier Beach High School in Seattle on Tuesday. (Melina Mara/The Washington Post)
In politics, it is said that you can fool some of the people all of the time and you can fool all of the people some of the time. In other words, liars have pretty good odds. The smoking guns keep piling up at Hillary Clintonís feet, but nothing seems to trip her. Yesterday, Judicial Watch released a batch of documents, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, that it says reveals blatant coordination between then-Secretary of State Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. Stunningly, the internal State Department emails expose Clintonís eagerness to ďthank [Clinton Foundation] supporters for their commitments.Ē Of course, these ďcommitmentsĒ must mean money. Itís incredible.

And, Clintonís State Department was apparently coordinating meetings for Bill Clinton with foreign heads of state. If any other employee at the State Department had arranged such meetings for their spouse and actively thanked contributors to their spouseís foundation, they would likely go to jail. No lawyer would even let it go to trial, because the sentencing guidelines would guarantee years behind bars. Another way to think about what was going on is to imagine that another countryís foreign ministerís spouse or family ran a foundation that American companies were caught giving to. Those American companies would certainly be vulnerable to prosecution by the Justice Department under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).

Itís only because Hillaryís last name is Clinton and because she is the Democratic front-runner for president that she isnít already being prosecuted for something or another. For anyone else at the State Department, their conviction and sentencing would produce only a matter-of-fact, back-page reference in The Washington Post.

The double standard doesnít end there. If any other State Department employee had decided to conduct all of his or her official business on a personal server located in his or her private home, that person would have already been prosecuted. Period. Full stop. And the story of that guilty plea would only have been prominent in the news because of the brazen gall displayed by the officeholder in question.

While itís not all criminal, Clintonís record of deceit has become something of an advantage for her campaign. One thing she can count on is that no one trusts her or believes what she says about her current policy positions. She rails against the big banks and the bankers she has always been cozy with, in part as a response to the popularity of Bernie Sandersís message. But if you ask any bankers how they feel about Hillary Clinton as president, they will tell you they donít fear a Hillary Clinton presidency. They will tell you that Hillary Clinton knows them and they know her. No one believes her White House would be hostile to the financial services industry. No one assumes she is telling the truth. They all know she is just saying what she has to say on the campaign trail in order to pacify the most gullible among the Democratic voters. The bankers and Wall Street types all count on the idea that whatever Clinton says in the campaign is irrelevant. They are all getting the message; they all see the wink, and they are happy to shrug off todayís rhetoric.


Itís the same thing with the free-trade advocates and the Keystone XL pipeline opponents. There is not one business executive who thinks a President Hillary Clinton would actually block the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade treaty. The anti-Keystone groups will rely more on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau than on Hillary Clintonís newly minted assertions that the pipeline wonít get built.

Donít just take it from me. Voters can sense her lack of authenticity and sincerity. In the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll, 59 percent of voters said that Hillary Clinton is not honest and trustworthy. The only person who is viewed as being even less trustworthy is the Republican front-runner, Donald Trump. How is it that in a country of approximately 330 million people, there arenít two well-adjusted, honorable people who are likely to end up being our choices to be president of the United States?

Itís all very discouraging. Election 2016 is taking American politics beyond a new low, entering us into a reality where deceit and deception are assumed.

I for one am getting more offended every day by Trump.  I started out very open minded and agreed with immigration etc but his behavior is getting really ridiculous as is this latest back and forth with Ted Cruz about the wives. 

I want a President not a reality show or a gossip column.

You are with all due respect very mistaken on how many other Republicans very much dislike him and mean what they say when they will not vote for him

Probably nearly every Black most Latinos and Asian will vote against him. 

He is driving voters away at least as fast as he brings them in. 

Hillary will run even in the unlikely event of an indictment in my humble opinion.

Even if indicted she will have her terror lawyers go after a misdemeanor "just like Petreaus".

And she will still run.

Either way to just ignore sky high negatives for Trump is putting one's head in the sand.

If I am wrong Doug McG will buy you breakfast   grin

We keep hearing rumors about brokered conventions. 

I don't know which is worse.  We nominate Trump and almost certainly lose. 

Or nominate someone else and he goes 3rd party like the vindictive guy he can be and his  followers will vote for him out of spite and we lose the election anyway.

Isn't reported that essentially all the new jobs are going to people from other countries.

Why this is wonderful.  We are merrily employing the world.  How beautiful.

I tried to find out who the people behind, 'Make America Awesome' PAC are.  Their website cannot be accessed.  My sense it is more of a Bill Crystal or National Review type group behind the picture and not Cruz.

Trump's shoot from the mouth response is I agree, one more reason he should not be President.

Crafty you are right about the *delusional* nature of his supporters.  I would still vote for him over any Democrat but I would have to hold my nose and close my eyes.

Actually I thought I chased you off the board.  In any case your posts are appreciated and enjoyed.  I hope you would reconsider posting.

And yes the policy makers have intruded big time into the medical field with regards to narcotics.  In the 90s and early 2000s doctors were criticized big time for being too wary of prescribing narcotics for pain.

Now we are told we are too lax.

Truth is we are very limited in what we can do for pain.  pain specialists will send patients for injections and procedures less for their value and more because they make mucho dollars.

From the CDC which for some reason is involved.  I guess because of an epidemic of people buying selling and using these drugs illicitly.

One can perhaps find similarities among narcotics throughout recent history and society

After the Civil War it became apparent veterans were becoming junkies to morphine.  Remember the cocaine in COKE  and the realization of how that was a disaster?  Go ask Sigmund.

How about the great movie 'Monkey on my Back' about the true story of Bennie Ross becoming an addict.

Who ever invents a medicine that can SAFELY relieve pain that is either not an NSAID or a narcotic will become the biggest "drug dealer" and the most deservedly rich one the world has ever know.

Who are the American Jews?  Good article by Charles. 

May be a reason for Jews identifying with the Democrat party as their new religion though I don't think this fully explains it:
