  1. well that would be a conversation stopper but why not?  At least it is true.

    we are all Donald Trump now

  2. Don the con?   I’m sorry, but that’s just lame. 
    4th grade 
    petty
    unbecoming and off-putting.
    nail clippers where a rapier is required

  3. Maybe she could ask, “Hey, Mr. President, what’s the fondest memory you have of spending time with your friend Jeffrey Esptein, out of the numerous times he’s stayed with you at Mar-a-Lago?”

  4. I just put on All the President’s Men and began wondering what movies will be made of SFB and his destruction of the presidency and America.  This movie was made just months after Tricky Dick was removed from office (yes he resigned, but that was the easy way out). 

  5. I already gave what I think is a better idea but other than that, no…..but that doesn’t prevent me from pointing out what I think is a bad idea.    Not like any of them are going to ask me.

  6. But Churchill ::::Don’t wrestle with a pig….you just get muddy and the pig enjoys it.  Or something like that. 

  7. I lived with disaffected, nearly homeless Trump supporters at Motel 6 and Days Inn for 7 months in Orlando, they are so lost unless brought back to reality. Elite Dems don’t have a clue what’s happening.

  8. Um, Elizabeth Warren wrote a book on it:

    “The Two-Income Trap: Why Middle-Class Mothers and Fathers Are Going Broke is a 2004 popular nonfiction book by Elizabeth Warren and her daughter Amelia Warren Tyagi, examining the causes of economic insecurity in American households and increasing rates of personal bankruptcy.“

  9. “They think Dems think they’re their ignorant. So does Trump. But they don’t get that.”
     
     …if the shoe fits

  10. “Sorry to keep bringing up Hitler but this is exactly the scenario that brought him to power.“

    yeah we tried to tell you that 3 years ago

  11. All she has to do is say she is proud of her Native American heritage and the fact that so many laugh at Donald Trumps ignorant and racist joke, shows what Native Americans  face everyday.
    Say it quietly, say it with force and say it often.

  12. Mrs Jack always believed that she had significant Native American ancestry.  Turns out she had none but she did have 1% African Bantu DNA.  Her Grandparents were from Louisiana, if you were light skinned being an Indian was a better choice if you were married to a white.

  13. This bears repeating

  14. The presidential candidate should return light for darkness.

    Calling trump names such as “Pervahontas!” “Pussygrabber!” “Human trafficker!” “quisling!” “Draft dodger!” “Adulterer!” “golf cheat” “Abortion buyer!” and so forth, would typically be the vp candidate’s job, e.g. dict cheney, dict nixon, spiro agnew & bob dole.

  15. Yo, what Jack, XR, Sturg, Bink … [I’m exhausted] said. 
     
    Gotta say I’m pretty much in awe of the level of discourse here – Which probably explains why I’ve been coming back again and again since this freaking site And it’s predecessor began. 

  16. Book of the year:
    ANABASIS, by Zenophon. 
    How a leaderless Greek army VOTED their way out of central Persia to the sea.

  17. 10,000 Greeks who’d signed on at top dollar to  the challenger to the Persian throne……their guy, as you may imagine, got a spear in the eye and so his 10,000 man Greek hirelings were marooned in the middle of Persia trying to work out a deal.   

  18. I’ve always viewed myself as a Xenophon type of person. As I remember he was much more a practical philosopher but then anyone would look practical when compared to Plato.  If the total screwups in the western world could be placed on a single individual it would has to be shared by Paul and Plato. 
    To be honest I’ve forgotten all I ever learned about them Greeks when I took that philosophy/history class some 40 years ago.

  19. Sturge sounds like the makings of a good movie. I remember the story but have forgotten the particulars.
    Jack

  20. So the entire Greek officer corps goes to meet with the Persians to work out a deal 
    The Persians send back a severed head to the Greek army.
    the Greek army decides to vote new leaders, and votes to fight their way out.
     

  21. Xenophon was a history guy…..he was according to him a member of the expedition to the sea out of persia

  22. Reading these potential comebacks for Warren takes me back to post-election TV appearances by HRC when she said she wanted to “turn around and tell this creep that was hovering over me (during a debate) to go back to his lectern.”  Trump has already revived his Pocahontas slur, so yes, Warren should attack back.  My Facebook pals call Trump a litany of horrible, but so-fitting insults, all which would be good, but the USA public isn’t conditioned to x-rated attacks just yet.  I can’t usurp any of the zingers on this thread, so all I can offer Warren to use is “This LIAR”.  WaPo says he lies 13 times a day on average.  That is a lotta lyin’.  

  23. Anabasis by St. John Pearse is also wonderful. It’s powerful poetry about a march up country and then to the sea, such as Xenophon’s. However, the poem doesn’t identify it as Xenophon’s in particular. It could just as well have been the tale of some other general. 

  24. faux news poll has Biden at 50% and trump at 38 % w/12% undecided, for ‘other,’  or unwilling to give an opinion.
    538 gives the faux news polling an A. 

  25. The coroner gave a directed verdict in the epstein case, but there are way too many loose ends to justify the report, in my opinion.
    Like the Peter Smith case from 2016, epstein shrieks for deeper study by a team of the very best forensic investigators.  

  26. 1.”If the total screwups in the western world could be placed on a single individual it would has to be shared by Paul and Plato.” – Mr Jack
    I couldn’t agree more. 
    2. “The sea ! The sea !” 

  27. If trump can wangle exec privilege to prevent lewandowski from testifying, then why not the undocumented workers at his various resorts, etc ? Why not extend it to hannity and tucker ??? 
    This is totally bogus, just another delaying and diverting tactic.
