"Why Republicans have this obsession with "decorum," when clearly the Democrats have ZERO concern with this - and use it quite effectively against Republicans routinely - is beyond me. "

Obj.  You and I are on same team.  I agree with you in principle.  I will vote for Donald.
But decorum is important and in view I will say why.  And that is we need to attract those who are on the fence or in the middle or if we call them independent ( which to me are those who don't stand for anything and will vote with the wind or whatever sounds good on any given day)

Trump has to be careful not to offend them

As  doctor in NJ I work with many foreign born doctors Indian HIndus, Msulims, Orientals.  While I do not bring up politics with most I have some tell me Trump is a "bigot"

I don't think he is but those who are sensitive will.  A few of them WERE Republican.  They are not now and it is because of him

Do not underestimate what a big vulgar mouth can do to people.
IF he was simply more polite and eloquent and tactful about making his points, this may not have happened.

I can tell you now that with these groups from Asia -  it IS ALL ABOUT RACE first!

"Wages will rise to $12.50 in rural Oregon, $13.50 in mid-size regions and $14.75 in greater Portland, all by the year 2022."

This is nuts.

can you imagine the confusion?

There can be NO end to more and more micro management in our lives
Anytime I hear the word manage it is basically telling me I am losing more freedom.

*Big data* is making the extent of this truly insane.

In the medical field there is an endless supply of supposed "researchers" who are sifting through reams of data to come up with anything .  So they can claim  a name a for themselves and publish in some trash phony medical journal and get place on yahoo health etc. some statistical association of something (virtually anything) with some disease and tell us we could save 5000 lives a year if (for example) we reduce our opening the refrigerator door two times less a day.

And this is extrapolated to 330 million people.  So all 330 million should be aware not to open the refrigerator door 2 less times a day because they find that 1 out of 100,000 people may have their life saved.

Then since this is not enough the next "expert" horses ass, will publish an editorial that says we should only include those at high risk to do this and they will discuss more research is needed to identify those at "high risk".   Then there will be another round of "researchers" who will come up with crazy tables and formulas that are supposed to identify people at high risk.

Then they will publish and all doctors are now supposed to screen people for high risk and ask them if they are identified based on a whole slew of features or scores to not open the refrigerator for 2 times less per day.

Then after we are all driven freakin nuts with all this bullshit in about a year another study will come out with opposite conclusions and advise not to do any of what we are "supposed" to do for the past year.

You want to live in a leftist society like this?

I "f" don't!!!

Well this is what is happening in medicine.

"Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and his wife, Kiya, a fashion designer, will host a private fundraiser for Clinton at their home Tuesday afternoon."

Naturally the wife will be happy to donate a high end wardrobe that is oked by Hillary's marketing team for her to wear on the red carpet.

"Trump Is Right to be Suspicious of Judge"

Objectivist.  I don't disagree with this statement.  Any member of LaRaza has to be suspect as believing in radical political activism and most specifically pushing for amnesty etc.

But that doesn't mean the judge believes this or even more importantly rules his Court with this bias.

It was the way in which Trump brought it up that is very hard to defend.  He brings up his *personal*Trump University issue at a rally and accuses the judge of being  a "hater" and more.

Very crudely done and not thought out well at all.  To do it in that manner was embarrassing. 

I could go on but I think I make my point.

"How far we have sunk as a nation from a moral sense when 70% of Democrats believe that Hillary should continue to run EVEN IF SHE IS INDICTED."

Half the country including myself agree with this.  Some portion of the other 50
%  (~ 1/3?) also agree but will vote for her because they will not vote Republican and the rest could care less because they are all in on her mafia organization.

In any case there is no controlling legal authority that will do anything about it at this time. Obama won't.  The AG won't.

I still guess there will be some sort of deal made to get her off.   Like with no admittance of wrong doing, just mistakes or at most carelessness, maybe be disbarred , take a national security class, fine, or whatever slap on the wrist General Patraeus got .  And he was finally let off in anticipation of letting her off easy.   It was the setup for her.

Yup, all just so sickening.

Hi Objectivist,


Like your posts.  I agree with a lot from the above post but I would like to make a clarification of this:


"But this comparison is false and misleading, for Trump and Clinton have had very different careers with different obligations and responsibilities."

But this is misleading.  Because now they have identical career paths and obligations and responsibilities.  They are both RUNNING for President.  And yes I personally expect some level of common decency from a potential leader.  How about a bit more tact and politeness.

Trump is NOT a team player.  He is in charge and everyone else must by his disciples  who pick up after him and try to clean up his messes.   

That has worked for those who are delusional to the point of excusing every bomb shell that comes out of his mouth but for the rest it is slow suicide.

I agree with them on many points but they are delusional to think they are going to win over any independents or moderate leftists with this strategy.

I just don't see how this can avoid losing more from the party then we bring in .

Thanks GM

Perhaps the answer to this is make marijuana legal in all 50 states.  So simply using Colorado as a base for growing and then transporting across states lines to sell is not so profitable.

That said I am very ambivalent about legalized marijuana in the first place and also it's medicinal value which I think is very highly exaggerated by pot heads and those seeking profit.

OTOH we may as well try making it legal say for a defined period of time to see if it works overall.

"There was no inspector general at the State Department during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as secretary — a state of affairs unique in modern history; and she knew that. How much more knowledge of her manipulations will the Justice Department tolerate before enforcing the law?"

I brought this up in a previous post.  Well why is THIS FACT also not a crime of hers.  She, or someone at State was supposed to appoint an IG by Congressional statute.

Swiss set to reject basic income for all

Geneva (AFP) - Swiss voters were on course Sunday to flatly reject a radical proposal to provide the entire population with a basic income, with no work required, initial results and projections showed.

National projections showed 78 percent of Swiss voters had opposed the initiative, according to numbers provided by the gfs.bern polling institute to public broadcaster RTS an hour after polls closed at noon (1000 GMT).

The result comes as no surprise: Opinion polls ahead of the vote had indicated more than 70 percent of Swiss voters opposed the measure.

The projections showed that 66 percent of voters had embraced a government proposal to speed up the country's asylum process.

Sixty-one percent also said "yes" to a call to allow genetic testing of embryos before they are inserted in the uterus in cases of in vitro fertilisation, according to the projections.

In a global first, the Swiss were asked whether they wanted all Swiss citizens, along with foreigners who have been legal residents for at least five years, to receive an unconditional basic income, or UBI.

The group behind the initiative has suggested paying 2,500 Swiss francs ($2,500/2,300 euros) a month to each adult, and 625 francs for each child.

The referendum came after reformers mustered more than the 100,000 signatures required to hold a popular vote, a regular feature of Swiss direct democracy.

But the idea was controversial from the start in Switzerland -- a country that values hard work -- and the government and nearly all political parties had urged voters to reject the scheme.

Andreas Ladner, a political scientist at Lausanne University, told RTS the Swiss were "realistic" in their assessment of the UBI plan.

Accepting that people can "be paid without having to work would have been a very big step" for the Swiss, he said, adding that the initiative appeared mainly to have been put forward to "spur debate".

"Just getting a broad public debate started on this important issue is a victory," Ralph Kundig, one of the lead campaigners, told AFP before the vote.

Supporters of the initiative argued that an unconditional income would help fight poverty and inequality in a world where good jobs with steady salaries are becoming harder to find.

"We need to find a new redistribution model," Kundig said.

"PS: It is a civil suit, there is no prosecutor, there is a plaintiff.  The attorneys for the plaintiffs are major contributors to Hillary and that is worth noting, but the term conflict of interest does not apply for them IMHO."

Thanks for clarification.

If a judge in a civil case seems to rule in a way that is not following a "reasonable" interpretation of the law is that grounds for some action of some kind?  Such as an appeal?

I am only asking out of ignorance and seeking "counsel" here so to speak.  I really don't know.

I mean judge's are expected to be impartial and follow the law right?  So what if a judge seems to be biased and goes out of bounds?

Just like we doctors have our biases.  Some of us support Obamacare some like me are not fans.   I don't recall taking a patient's own political views into account when treating them.

OTOH I never brought up politics unless the patient did and I would agree with them.  If I didn't I would nod yes and move on.

"It does not help when Trump makes an ass of himself and farts all over those of us intending to vote for him with stupid, stupid comments like he made about the judge in his Trump U. case."

Agreed. 

As for the judge, if there is a conflict of interests due his affiliations then let his lawyers bring it up in a way that will not insult Mexicans and is in accordance with the justice system.

OTOH I don't know if there is a tactful legally acceptable way to do that.  I suppose if his decisions or actions taken seem to not be impartial or objective to the law then a case can be made?
What say attorney on the board?
