or perhaps you can find some incident when a country have "begged" for help from the US and give us some links!


Apparently you were born long after World War II, Korea and the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Perhaps I'm too old and my memory start to fail...
I don't remember any US involvement in the collapse of the Soviet Union.


Support of the Mujahadeen, among others.

Having a sufficient,ready and capable set of armed forces may well mean that won't have to use it. Or if we do use it we won't bog down with pussy-footing, inadequate numbers and political correctness. Pretty soon we will all be carrying uzi's to go to the supermarket like they do in Israel if world trends continue.

So I say to you: Sprechen Sie Deutsch or how are you at teaching the finer Murderous dictates of the Koran.

For all of our pacifist friends, we are at war now and so are our allies. Wishing it will go away is a fools game.


So, let's say ir clearly: do you believe, as Jodi Ernst claimed, that ISIS is now present in all 50 states? That they have a base just over the border in Mexico? Or some similar belief at least?

And what exactly are you saying in your second paragraph? Are you leveling an accusation at me or another here? How exactly did this prevent what you speak of in your second sentence?

As for your third paragraph, could you tell me when the U.S. has not been at war???

Was not the draft still in effect during Vietnam?

Pretend that you were the advisor to President Donald Trump. What would you advise ?

I would like to take a shot at it myself. This is just the start.

[list]Withdraw troops from S Korea, Germany, France, Japan, England. Keep only airbases in these countries.

Close 60% of our overseas bases.

What about Turkey. Airbases need defending, who's going to do that. Defense is probably best done offshore, you are proposing bringing it back to the shores of the US and endangering millions if a war was to break out.

Eliminate entire departments: Education etc

Who ensures at least a common set of standards across the country. Who pays to educate subjects and level so that students can be moved from low to higher standard states?

Mandate 10% reduction per year in all remaining departments except DOD--use early retirement for those with 20 years. Mandatory retirement with those having 30 years.

Who employs retrains and employs these people after this service?
30 years work is not long enough to save enough for retirement and health care in old age, who pays for this. Without immigration the birth rate is not high enough for the younger generations to support the old'uns.

Initiate a draft.

Ah this is where your education budget is going, as a lot will now need extensive education and training to do the required jobs, and don't forget draftee's are usually only in for 19 months to two years.


Reinstate the draft, go to a few more wars (perhaps with corporations that are in our WR's "territorial waters", ones at least 50% U.S. owned according to WK, kill off several young men (and women) in this war, less need for using money to support post-secondary education. Also likely to severely reduced/completely cut any teaching WR might still do. Round 'n' round!

A couple of hours ago, I ran into a Clinton delegate. (I'll let your brains go wild trying to figure out how that is even possible.) I started doing the same Bill Clinton imitation I've been doing 25 years. He didn't get it (until later, after being a condescending &*^$#). Before he got it, he said "Oh, you must be a Bernie supporter!" Why? Because of Slick WIlly nearly-lost-my-voice imitation? Because of my 1/2 way down my back pony tail? Because of the mountain climbing t-shirt I am wearing? If these are the reasons for his assumption, then he is as condescending as Hillary.

give the man credit for being a great orator.



You're kidding right?


Can you stand up & give an oration for 77 minutes?


As a matter of fact, I can and do.

In front of how many?

No, it is are they forced to be there?


They can walk out as easily as the alternative media cameras showed people easily walking out on several key RNC speakers. (EDIT: for about 17 months I did work a job where the level of compulsion was quite a bit higher and legally so.)

And, Sirius, "in front of how many" increases as years go by. If something I say angers them or is difficult to understand, I have much less separating them from me and I have to answer their questions, where as a politician can just barrel on, factually or fact-free.

Tell me how you can respect someone who has absolutely no respect for anyone else but himself?
Perfect description of Hillary...........


We get it. Hillary sucks. No, really, I agree, she does!
But ... how many threads do we have about Hillary now? (Including 1 new one this week?)
I hope it's not that stuff your state legalized that's making it hard to determine which thread to post in? ;)

I really wish that some of you would have a bit more respect.
Whether you like it or not, I have little doubt that Trump ;is going to be our next president......Of the good ol' USofA.

It might not be to everybody's liking, but consider the alternative.

And she might be jailed before the election, God willing.

Meow.


Sorry, respect and politicians overwhelmingly tend to be mutually exclusive.

Trump is poison.
Clinton is worse.

Either one of these two wins, the nation is screwed. Effectively we are presented a choice between Hitler and Stalin.

We NEED someone else.


You mean Hitler and MADE-OFF.
CALLING CLINTON ANYTHING ALONG THE LINES OF A LIBERAL/PROGRESSIVE/SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST is ab ASOLUuuuute .... FREAK'ing HILLARYous jOOOke.
Get it together, Kong.
P.S.: love how all posts end with a note that your posts have ended "textexit"! NICE! ;)

Trump's Foreign Policy Advisor...

"He will never give up his style, his way to target his enemies. The Americans are fed up with the bullshit they heard for many years. They want the truth, they want to believe what their leaders are saying again. Trump is such an underdog, a fighter -- a man who rebels against the establishment, against all kinds of resistance. That is what Americans love."

... :-)

I guess I sort of forgot there are speech writers(in which case the blame can be directed to), but I'm amazed Trump's would borrow so many turns of a phrase from Obama's.

Gordon, remember The Donald claims to hire only the best. ROTFLMAO.


What's worse is that he had the audacity to blame Hillary for the uproar over the plagiarism rather than addressing it within his party. Is this what we can expect from four years of his presidency? Crooked Hillary is sounding better and more trustworthy by the minute in comparison.


Oh, gimmie a break...



Ms. Trump (or more likely her speechwriter) may have lifted some material from a speech Ms. Obama gave a couple of DNCs ago. So?

Ms. Obama (or more likely her speechwriter) lifted some of the material from *that* speech ( a couple of lines) from Saul Alinsky's publication "Rules for Radicals"... (the phrases 'world as it is' and 'world as it should be'.) So?

Mr. Obama lifted some stuff from Deval Patrick. So?

Ms. Clinton lifted some stuff from Mr. Sanders. So? (he probably lifted it from someone else anyway).

Plagiarism... They ALL do it. To expect them to either not use others words and/or ideas, or to provide attribution when they do, would be... quite unrealistic.


The same thing keeps happening, over and over.

I've seen it before, I will see it again.


I don't care so much about the plagiarism. As you said, it happens all the time. All I care about is how he handled it, and all he did - all he ever does - is blame others.


It's how one responds.

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2016/06/27/al-qaeda-urges-lone-wolves-to-target-whites-to-avoid-hate-crime-label.html
Lone wolf jihadists should target white Americans so no one mistakes their terror attacks for hate crimes unrelated to the cause of radical Islam, Al Qaeda writes in the latest edition of its online magazine.

In an article first reported by The Foreign Desk, Al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) called for more self-directed Muslim terrorists to kill in America. But the article, titled “Inspire guide: Orlando operation,” tells terrorists to “avoid targeting places and crowds where minorities are generally found” because if gays or Latinos appear to be the targets, “the federal government will be the one taking full responsibility.”
...
Although Al Qaeda does not take credit for Mateen’s attack in the online article, it urges more “lone wolves” to take up arms. Jihadists should target “areas where the Anglo-Saxon community is generally concentrated,” it states. “This class of the American community is the majority and it is the one that is in the American leadership.”

Al Qaeda is "very carefully threading a needle" by endorsing the attack while criticizing Mateen's target selection, said Ryan Mauro, national security analyst for Clarion Project, a Washington-based nonprofit that tracks the international terror threat.

"This is Al Qaeda's way of asserting itself above ISIS in the wake of its competitor's success," Mauro said.

Inspire magazine often exploits terror attacks in the West and makes threats against Europe and the United States. While the terror group responsible for 9/11 has been overshadowed by rival ISIS in recent years, it praised Mateen for his monstrous act.

“We stand by and support all Muslims who attack America in their homeland regardless of their affiliation to any group or loyalty,” the guide states, though adding that Mateen could have killed even more if he had used bombs in addition to the guns he carried: a Sig Sauer MCX semi-automatic rifle and a Glock 17 handgun.

"Al Qaeda is talking condescendingly toward ISIS while remaining supportive, like a guru of jihad mentoring a reckless amateur," Mauro said.


Gonna work on my tan!

Yes, this time it is about who can use a bathroom, who can refuse to bake a cake, who gets birth control, who gets a gun, and Jim Crow voter laws.

Yes, exactly the same issues as 1860's.

And this time around one side likes guns and has guns and the other side doesn't like guns and doesn't own guns. But they will expect the LEO/Government/Military to protect/defend them while, those ranks are filled with lots of gun loving/owning people who will be expected to kill their like kind. Oh! Yah!

R0TFLMA0!!

Where is your evidence "they" don't like guns?

Margin of error for sample of 400 ~ 1.58 * Margin of error for sample of 1000.
IFF samples are random and all answer when questions are put to them.


AND answer sincerely/honestly.

However, margin of error is NOT meant to cover these issues. m = critical value for confidence level * standard deviation / sqrt(sample size).

One also needs to study,

number of those polled, low numbers like ~400 will produce much larger errors than a poll of over 1,000.

history of the poll, is it the first or is it an update and therefore shows trends.

and probably more importantly who did the poll, are they biased. Like Rasmussen Reports since Mr. Rasmussen left.

If Trump were to win, he would be world's only national leader to reject climate science
Donald Trump would be the only national leader in the world to dismiss the science of climate change should he become president, putting him out of step even with Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe and Kim Jong-un, the leader of North Korea.

The potential isolation of the US on climate change has been laid bare by a new Sierra Club report which found universal acceptance of climate science among the leaders of the 195 countries recognized by the US state department.


You believe he doesn't believe in it? He'll say anything, except when it comes to rising sea levels endangering one of his golf courses in Scotland.

I didn't know that the golf course was under threat, and I have lived, for a short time, in that part of the world.

The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.
Donald J. Trump


One source for what I said: http://www.politico.com/story/2016/05/donald-trump-climate-change-golf-course-223436.

WHy believe he BELIEVES climate change is a Chinese-made hoax rather than one more thing he'' SAY to get attention/power? On some issues he's brought up, approximately, 5 positions in 24-48 hours.
