Tips And Open Thread ….. For Just A Little Bit!


So, I’ve to go run for a bit to practice.  I will be back to make a few posts, though, later.  I wanted to squeeze a few in but, they all seem related, and, thus, one lengthy post.  …….. But, I don’t like lengthy posts….. so, I’ll rethink.  Maybe readers can chime in on some of the things I’m thinking about. …..

Trump and Cruz …. what’s their appeal to conservatives?  ….. Clinton and her ongoing lack of ethics ….. apparently, a private citizen has some of our classified documents on a thumb drive …. somewhere.  I don’t see Hillary beating Bernie Sanders in a Dim primary ……  He’s got their base.  Speaking of Bernie …. he says he’s not for an open, unfettered border, in that it hurts wages and jobs here in the US.  Apparently, he believes the border is somewhat protected. 

This time a legal green card holder murders Americans.  ……. and around and around we go!

    Trump and Cruz …and Bernie….. what’s their appeal to conservatives?

    I’m sick and tired of Boehner crying…Liindsey and McCain whining…McConnell lying…wait, all of them lying…and on…..and all of them acting more like little girls than the real women (who are eating them alive)
    Trump, Cruz, and Bernie all have essentially the same message…Illegals are hurting us, government is giving our money to these huge (too big to fail) institutions, we’re running around lost and weak to the rest of the world…..etc
    The rest of the republican candidates are either a total mess, or just more of the same..I do like Carly a lot.

    Here’s what I see as the dynamics…republicans ran McCain…who came across as a whiny uppity and lost…teamed with Palin who everyone knew could he him for lunch…not a good match
    …then comes Romney, teamed with Ryan (what happened there), who came across as a victim of spousal abuse, Romney that is…and was attacked more from the republican party than the democrats! So much for winning….

    We’re all sick and tired of reaching across the aisle, making deals, and compromising….sic and tired of electing these lofty asswipes with no balls….

    Trump, Cruz, and Bernie are coming across as the only male candidates that know what Testosterone is….you would have thought they would just ask one of the democrat women….and that’s why they are out in front. Republicans have been looking like road kill for years.

    There’s no such thing as a liberal or democrat….independent. When they say someone is appealing to the independents, that’s the conservatives that left the republican party.

    • suyts says:

      Well, Bernie is a socialist running against Hillary….. but, yes, the appeal for Trump and Cruz is that they’ll say what they mean and fight and stand up. To an extent, Sanders is the same way on the left. Sanders honestly believes what he’s saying, as far as I can tell ….. but, he is a self avowed socialist.

      • Latitude says:

        but…listen closely….he’s saying practically the same thing as Cruz and Trump

        That’s what’s leaving a mark…..people are sick and tired and this is what they want to hear….both sides

          “but…listen closely….he’s saying practically the same thing as Cruz and Trump”

          Lat, a similar phenomenon happened in 2014 in Germany, when right wing PEGIDA and AfD as well as extreme Leftists both heaped scorn on the state media for their NeoCon propaganda for war against Russia.

          The criticism is the same, the prescribed solution differs wildly.

      • suyts says:

        True, and that’s his appeal. But, as Leftin points out, he’s a socialist …..

    Our current president got elected making statements like Bernie’s border comment. If anyone believes anything from a campaigning Dem again, they should be declared not mentally competent enough to vote.

  3. Latitude says:

    and now for something different…..

    Clinton emails are being investigated because she could have sent classified info on her private server…
    …They withhold the emails and don’t release them
    Judge says he’s going to put them all in jail if they don’t comply
    …they answer back that it’s taking longer because they are having to run each email through intelligence to be sure they don’t contain classified info

    …film at 11

    The thing I like about Trump is he doesn’t take any crap from the press. He’s not afraid to tell them they are corrupt. The RINOs continually suck up to the press. They always think the press is their friend. They never learn.

    Perfect example are the debates. Typically, all the questioners/moderators are media Libs. Why doesn’t the GOP require a balance of moderators. For example, one Lib, one “Savage”, one Lib, one “Limbaugh”, etc. Answer: the GOP is controlled by RINOs.

    (I like Trump for stirring things up, but am not sure he would be my ultimate pick. But, I would vote for a dead cat over any Dimmo!)

    • suyts says:

      Exactly! Trump isn’t afraid. Cruz isn’t either, and that’s their appeal!

      “The thing I like about Trump is he doesn’t take any crap from the press. He’s not afraid to tell them they are corrupt. The RINOs continually suck up to the press. They always think the press is their friend. They never learn.”

      What’s pointless about all these considerations – and about Trump, etc – is: You all don’t consider, what does the CFR want.

      Bilderbergers, the European branch of the imperial power backbone, are behind Hillary, so the CFR is probably as well, and of course CFR+Bilderbergers also have a guy on the other side, which is most likely Jeb Bush.

      At this point it looks like they will have to let their Rep candidate win. So they will remove Trump; by letting their media fire on Trump until he gives in, and at the same time offer Trump a very good deal indeed so he retreats into a little private dealmaking again. Carrot+Stick approach.

      Maybe this deal is already ongoing and Trump plays a role of letting off steam for the Tea Party faction and later “honorably fails”; maybe attracting all the fire from the “left” (and by drawing fire on himself, letting Jeb Bush rise unopposed, and when Trump “falls” you have a “clean” Jeb Bush rising up behind him).

      Trump is not a guy who would decline a good deal.

      • Latitude says:

        Dirk, Trump is not interested in being bought. He’s going to stick it through to the very end. His money is in real estate, if he’s up to anything it’s making property values go up.

    So what is the difference between a democrat and a socialist?

    We still don’t know.

  7. DirkH says:

    After nearly starving the Brits twice with U boot sea blockades, our third attempt, using our African Chunnel blockade special forces, is starting to bear fruit.

  8. Latitude says:

    so let’s see….after several years, thousands of bombing runs….we can’t kill 10 ISIS fighters..

    …but Turkey can kill or wound 700 Kurds in just a couple of runs
