Comment Re:Anti-Hillary is not Pro-Trump (Score 1) 820

In fact, I perceive Trump as the greatest threat to American democracy ever.

My kids believe in the tooth fairy as well, that doesn't make them right...

So you thinking that doesn't mean anything... When you grow up maybe you'll understand, or perhaps not... lots of people like to live in fantasy land...

Clinton is self-serving and doesn't give two shits about anyone but herself, you'd know that if you bothered to open your eyes and mind...

There's a strong correlation between education level and support for Trump. So don't worry it's not your fault.

Ahh, so you're a flaming asshole who thinks you're smarter than me because I support Trump and you support the criminal?

Good to know...

There is maybe hope for you yet, if you decide to pull your head out of your own ass long enough to buy a clue, but probably not, most people are morons...

you don't need to be an expert to know the simple thing that hot steel gets soft.

And when it gets soft and has half a building sitting on top of it, it can bend and deform, and once it starts to go, it runs away and comes apart.

Yes, I agree with you, the 9/11 "truthers" are nuts, right up there with the "we never went to the moon" nuts. :)


I can take it a step further... half a million people saw the planes hit the buildings, not on video, but in person, it was in fucking New York City. It isn't like it was a secret event. Further, one of my best friends was supposed to be on the AA plane that hit the tower, she swapped routes with her best friend a few days before because she had a family event to be at, otherwise she would be dead.

You can't cover up an event like that, too many people know too many people, same with the moon landings, someone would talk...

BTW, regarding the moon thing, I've met Gene Cernan (last man to walk on the moon) more than once in person, I had the chance to go to a lunch that he was a featured guest at and got to speak with him afterward, I don't for one second think he was lying to me about being on the moon.

Welcome to the internet.

Yea, you'd think I was new or something! :)

I am not a nuclear power expert, I have opinions and thoughts, but they are just based on reading stuff online combined with my personal worldview.

And that is all most of what is written here really is, except some of it is really out in left field, such as the "ten thousand years of nuclear waste" comments. Anything that is radioactive for 10,000 years isn't actually very dangerous, that is basic science. It is the stuff with a 50 year half life that will kill you.

Anyway, you appear to want the job. Inevitably that casts aspersion on you.

I think I have a reasonable chance of doing a better job than either of the two people we have running, but that is only because I don't have visions of power and world domination... I also know that I don't know it all and anyone who says "I'm ready on day one" is full of crap, no one is really ready, you just have to be as prepared as you can be and have a good team of people.

For what it is worth, I think many normal people could do the job, if they are only willing to be intelligent about it... Of course, I suppose that disqualifies a lot of people. :)

Side note: If you'd like an idea of my thinking... When George W. Bush was planning to invade Iraq, had that been me, I would have looked at my three choices of people to listen to...

Dick Cheney
Donald Rumsfeld
Colin Powell

And I would have asked myself... which of those three people actually knows from personal experience how military operations work? Which one spent 35 years in the military, rose to four star general, and perhaps knows 10 times more than the other two combined about military operations?

Yea, George picked the wrong people to listen to...

No, she actually wasn't.

Then you're uninformed...

You're either too stupid

Why are you talking about yourself?

There are democrats that are useless, annoying, and flat out wrong; the percentage of them to the whole party is far, FAR smaller than the current republican party.

You're wrong, the numbers are similar across both parties...

But you aren't going to listen, because you're brainwashed...

Democrats by in large work for the betterment of the people...


Fuck that was funny... oh wait, I hope to hell you don't believe that shit...

The stock market has almost doubled under Obama.

That isn't hard to do when you're printing money like it is going out of style... They are hiding the inflation well, but it is coming...

You don't print $5 Trillion and hide it forever... (and it isn't "hidden" so much as they have covered up the effects for awhile)

Jobs are recovering.

U6 is more interesting than U3, as it work force participation rate... how is growth in the US economy? How is wage growth going?

Do you really want to give that up?

Yes, because they all suck right now, they should be far better... Everything from food stamps to health care has been a disaster under Obama... You think this is good? I'd hate to see what you think is bad, because this is terrible... It should be much better...

Beware of being led by emotions. They seldom lead to good decisions. To reason alone must be one's first master.

Yes, which is why I don't want Clinton in charge of a Lemonaid stand, much less America... She is pond scum... Actually, as a human being, I don't like her at all. Moving past her policies, she is not a nice or good person.

Trump is actually the more reasonable of the two choices... He isn't married to any one position, he has already shown flexibility when it comes to various points during the election. He is more more of a moderate than Clinton is.

The only comparison I can think of that may be valid is Trump has shown a method of getting elected where truth doesn't matter; where career ending gaffs don't matter; where obvious attempts to court racists don't matter; where blatant appeals to emotions and feel good slogans are the rule of the day, with no real plan to implement any of it works. It is bombast rather than true leadership and wisdom.

Did Ronald Reagan in 1980 really have a plan for anything before being elected?

How much of that survived his first 6 months in office?

Trump knows that it doesn't matter what policies he puts forward, none of it will apply in a year anyway, the world will be different...

And side note, it has ALWAYS been this way, remember Reagan's "Morning in America" thing? That was just feel good emotions as well...
