Successful business people from California for the most part.

I don't run a census business so sorry if dat ain't good enough. However, I think re-electing Obama last term had more to do with lack of quality opposition than overwhelming support for him.

Things like obamacare look fine on the surface for Canadians. Most people I spoke with seemed to say the same thing about it, it covers very little of what you actually need and people without private insurance overlapping with obamacare are still on the hook for big $$$

Agreed - although I'm not crazy about her name... kinda awkward to call out "Ivanka" in a moment of passion!

Obamacare is still better then anything every other president has come up with. The Republicans had 12 years of bush and 8 years of Reagan and could not come up with anything better.

I thought this was comical. Donald Trump seems to actually not understand the definition of the word 'sacrifice'.

Coles Notes:

A muslim couple spoke at the DNC about losing their son in war. The mother stood by in support. Not only did Trump make a completely ignorant comment in this speech about her "not being allowed to speak", implying that her religion forbade her, but this interviewer asked him to respond to what kinds of sacrifices he's made, and he responds by talking about the jobs he's created.

It's like if I ask you where you went on vacation, and you answering me by telling me how you made a pizza.


Here's an article with the response from the mother who "wasn't allowed to speak", along with a link to the original video clip to the father's moving speech at the DNC.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opini...d=ss_fb-bottom

**Bonus clip: the autoplay video after this is a clip of Trump criticizing the fire marshal about how many people are allowed in the room he chose to speak in, and calling him a Hillary supporter

Totally self centred. It's all about him. His three friends are, Me, Myself, and I. Michael Bloomberg said it best. Can't upload the link from my phone, but he was pretty much dead on with his attack on Trump.

Trump was born with a silver spoon and has no clue what life is about. He reminds me of Richie Rich, except Trump has a mean streak. Probably resulting from years of people making fun of him while growing up. Actually, I don't think he has grown up at all. As soon as he is verbally attacked by someone he comes back by throwing back insults, like a little kid, instead of proving they are wrong.

Anyway, this shit is fun to watch.................. god bless america.

He's going to get eviscerated in the debates. Playtime will be over because he's not dealing with the fuckups the Republican party was putting out there. C'mon...Ben Carson? Ted Cruz? Chris Christie? And ol' Whats-His-Name?

Once he has to talk actual policy and can't just pander to the Republican audience by talking about terrorism and religion, Trump is fucked.

Trump doesn't know when to stop when it comes to being a mean spirited bully.

I give big props to Mr. Khan for standing up on behalf of many Muslim Americans who endured months of hate filled rhetoric from this fool.

How can Trump attack the wife of Mr. Khan, a mother of a U.S. soldier who died in Iraq to protect, by saying that she didn't say anything at the DNC?

Mr. Khan is right. The Donald has a "black soul". He doesn't know what sacrifice means nor has he sacrificed anything for the United States compared to the ultimate sacrifice of the Khan family in losing a son. A son who fought his country and died in combat.

That is a patriot! That is sacrifice!

Trump? That fucker didn't even serve in the military. He sacrificed nothing for his country!

Yeah, Donald really dug his own grave when he said that about the Khan family. How can you compare losing a loved one to "creating jobs and spending money" as sacrifice? Dumbass. Once you slander the military, you're toast. He's such an idiot. Just because of his name, ppl think he's intelligent.
Brutal candidates. Go with a corrupt one or a lunatic. Pick your poison, America. Haha

A buddy told me that there is wager on Playnow.com about Trump.

3 to 1 odds of Trump being elected as POTUS.

Trump even yells at mothers with crying babies.

http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/02/politi...aby/index.html



Donald Trump, trying to reassure a distressed mother with a crying baby, said Tuesday that he loves hearing babies cry at his rallies and told her not to worry -- only to change his mind just a moment later.

"I love babies. I hear that baby cry, I like it," Trump said at a campaign event here as a baby could be heard crying in the audience. "What a baby. What a beautiful baby. Don't worry, don't worry. The mom's running around, like, don't worry about it, you know. It's young and beautiful and healthy and that's what we want."

Trump gifted Purple Heart, says he 'always wanted' one

But less than two minutes later, as the baby continued to wail, Trump took back his words.

"Actually I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here," he said to laughs. "I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I'm speaking. That's OK. People don't understand. That's OK

I'm at that point where I ain't even mad at Trump anymore.
The guy is a troll of epic proportions

I'm honestly more dumbstruck by his dangerously stupid as fuck supporters, and that's an insult to the word fuck.
You can't even have a conversation with most of these idiots because of how fucking stupid they are.

Trump is done.

I saw that and some of the comments floating around on the web does not support the mom.

Some of the comments were like "what are you guys talking about? Trump was trying to be nice initially. As soon as he said he loves babies, the mom should've rushed out of the rally for Trump and other people listening to him"

The parents were bashing Trump and he replies to a question honestly, and now he's being put up to slaughter (yet, again).

Yes, his answer to the sacrifices question was comical, but other than that, I don't see what the big deal is.

Side note, are muslim women not allowed to speak generally in public? Is it muslim women who are "supposed" to be second class to men, or is that women only in some parts of the world?

You can't even have a conversation with most of these idiots because of how fucking stupid they are.
I was at a party over the weekend and this guy was talking shit about donald trump. He was saying some pretty nasty things about Trump. Of course everyone was jumping on the bandwagon and talking shit too.

As a non biased person looking in, I simply asked him, why he thought Trump was racist and a POS. The guy just replied, "Dude, haven't you been watching the news, he's a freaking moron".

I replied, I've only seen him on TV during a replublican debate and he didn't say anything stupid, in fact he said all the right things. But, that's just what I saw in the one debate. Other than that, I haven't heard him say or do anything that was racist or moronic.

The guy didn't really have anything to say to that. I was honestly, just trying to see why people thought he was racist or moronic. I'm not a trump supporter trying to alienate anyone. I just want to see what they see, because so far, I don't see why Trump is such an "Idiot".

,

Honestly, Peanut. You should do exactly what the guy at the party says -- watch some news. It is not difficult to see why Trum is such an idiot. Or you might want to think about why Obama has most recently come out to openly say why he thinks Trump is unfit to serve as POTUS. Or why a number of Republicans have announced they will support Hillary instead of their party's own candidate.

Think about all of that for a moment.

She was grieving and holding back her emotions. A mother should never have to bury one of her children. Stop to think about that one.............

Also, not all women are yappers. Some are just quiet by nature. Under the circumstances.......... anyway, nuff said.

It's a gold star family. They are held in the highest honor because they sacrificed a child for a the country. Every other person turns the other cheek and just takes it.

Trump today got a purple heart and he said I always wanted on and it was easy. The only other person that's ever said I always wanted one was Frank Burns from the TV show M.A.S.H. No soldier wants a purple star because to get one you have to get in injured or killed in battle. saying it was easy was just as bad if not worse.

I could buy a purple heart on ebay but it does not make me a war hero.
