Trump accuses Clinton of rigging debate schedule

Donald Trump late Friday accused Hillary Clinton of intentionally stacking debates against primetime programming to “rig” the election process, despite the fact that the schedule has been set since last September.

“As usual, Hillary & the Dems are trying to rig the debates so 2 are up against major NFL games. Same as last time w/ Bernie. Unacceptable!” Trump tweeted late Friday night.

So the debates were announced in 2015, the NFL schedule in 2016, but Hillary is so powerful she was able to "rig" the process. We Believe! Pants on fire!

At the end of the day, I was barely able to get my leg into the car. I'm now in my recliner with a pillow under it. I think it will still be very stiff tomorrow. I'm going to ask to switch from 3142 to coach.

Take the day off, medically unfit, see urgent care to get some good pain killers.

Body language usually displays the truth, where words are often lies.

+1
<ed>Thought police liked circumstantial evidence ....

"I was going to hit one guy in particular, a very little guy," Trump said, making a clear reference to Bloomberg's stature. "I was going to hit this guy so hard his head would spin and he wouldn't know what the hell happened. He came out of nowhere!"

Who's attacking whom, a threat of violence would suggest Trump is the aggressor.

Might be actionable terroristic threats?

This week I had one of the most disturbing train rides of my life – and it changed my perspective on Black Lives Matter

I tune into the conversation around me and hear the kids. Let me emphasize KIDS. Kids making a game plan for what they will do if the police start to shoot them – because they are black

but because it will hopefully have a chilling effect on any other large, multi-national, multi-billion $ computer/software/etc. type companies considering anything even remotely similar.

Unfortunately it would become a textbook case and all the little "errors" M$ did would be pointed out so that your client won't do them.

Gary, I think you're just addressing mission creep of laws. Fair topic but I do not see it as the same as the question I raised.

The original response was to look at your question backwards. Who breaks laws? There are the people who are so honest they believe everyone follows all laws all the time. I haven't met anyone who thinks there are people who break all laws all the time.

Reality is a sheet of paper with writing will not keep you safe. What keeps you safe is there being no reason to attack you. A job to keep idle hands busy perhaps? A path to grow? Others who don't bully?

Heck, maybe dark matter is almost naked singularities that are now so small that they only have one quark in them and they can't evaporate all the way. Saying their hole size is now so small that they can't eat a particle because all particles are larger than the hole they must fall into.

“I wanted to hit a couple of those speakers, so hard, I would have hit them, no, no, I was going to hit them so hard.”
...
he went on to say that he wanted to hit one guy, a little guy “I want to hit this guy so hard his head would spin.”

Really?! A candidate for president who wants to physically assault people who don't agree with him? Is he running for President or Dictator?

It's becoming trendy around here to raise chickens in the backyard, but I'll stick with the grocery for my eggs.

Trendy or poor?

No hablar espanol mi amigo? Por que'.


JaundicedEye,

Uhh... You forgot to conjugate the verb.

Hablar = 'to speak'.... the infinitive.

Second person singular formal would be 'habla'.

Furthermore, since the question in English would tend to place emphasis on the word 'You', one might also include its Spanish equivalent...

Perhaps...

¿Usted no habla español, mi amigo? ¿Por qué?

You do not speak Spanish, my friend? Why?


There are likely other errors in it, but a bad verb conjugation? Dayum. That is obvious even to me. My old Spanish teacher drilled those into us but good. And my wife (Both a Spanish and a German major on her BA) does not let me forget it either.

Well, in Madrid maybe. In México you would need to conjugate it into the familiar tense. There are some big differences between Castilian and LAM Español. Of course that doesn't count Spanglish.

Oh, never mind in México you may need to speak some Native languages as well, such as Mayan.

Rather strange story though.
That he had "build" an AR-15 is ridiculous.

California. That is the answer to your confusion. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer. Semi-auto rifles are banned in California. Even for police officers. They had to write a special exemption into the law so the guards at the two nuclear power plants could carry them.
