Perhaps Americans should embrace the solution made by the town of Cormorant in Minnesota to overcome the dilemna of who to vote this coming November. The town has voted for a dog to be their mayor for three consecutive terms and the town has never been more peaceful, progressive and prosperous. Moreover, it has never been in any conflict or war with any other towns or municipalities. Long live Duke the dog mayor of the town, who is a nine-year-old Great Pyrenees. He was first elected mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota in 2014.
Presidential forum proves no matter who wins, America loses
So Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump appeared one after the other last night for a half-hour on NBC to talk about being commander in chief. Polls will tell us who “won”; frankly, I have no idea.
But overall, America lost, big-time.
Listening to Clinton prevaricate about her emails and Trump prevaricate about positions he holds and doesn’t entirely seem to understand once again raises the unholy horror of the fact that out of 330 million people in the United States, these are the two who have ended up in the race for the White House in 2016.
NBC’s Matt Lauer was quite relentless with Clinton when it came to her handling of classified information on an unsecured private server, even going so far as to ask whether it disqualified her from the presidency.
She has tried out various approaches to this matter, from saying she made an error for which she had no excuse (a line she repeated to Lauer) to saying she did nothing wrong and had nothing to apologize for. But last night her chutzpah reached an all-time high when she pointed out there was all kinds of evidence that government servers had been hacked but no evidence her private server had been hacked.
The clear suggestion here was that Hillary Clinton had been a better steward of the classified information of the United States government than the United States government ? even though she had just said it had been a mistake to set up her private server in the first place. By what logic, then, should she consider her conduct a mistake?
The simple fact of the matter is that there’s no defense for what she did, since she did it in bad faith to shield her email improperly from future public discovery ? and would have succeeded had the events in Benghazi not occurred on her watch. So now she simply uses every opportunity she has to create new smoke screens simply to evade more thorough and direct questioning.
The FBI may not have indicted her, but her conduct has been so unbecoming a leader that the American people have ? polls show nearly 70 percent of the American people consider her untrustworthy. She did nothing to improve on that last night, and indeed may have harmed herself further.
But at least she didn’t spend three minutes of her time sucking up to Vladimir Putin, the way Donald Trump did. Trump not only praised the Russian thug’s leadership and cited the KGB goon’s poll numbers, but appeared to draw a comparison between Putin and Barack Obama that favored Putin. I’m the opposite of an Obama fan, but that’s just disgusting. Obama hasn’t had reporters killed, hasn’t choked off press freedoms, hasn’t swallowed up Crimea, and isn’t seeking imperial dominion of America’s geographical neighbors.
Some other choice gems included this one: “Our generals have been reduced to rubble.” Even for a guy who once intimated that attempting to evade sexually transmitted diseases during the 1970s had been his own personal Vietnam, this was low.
It was said in response to a question about his claim that he knew more about ISIS than the country’s generals. After the “rubble” remark, he claimed both that he had a secret plan to defeat ISIS and that he didn’t have a secret plan to defeat ISIS. Or at least I think that’s what he said. Who knows?
Democracy, the great cynic H.L. Mencken once said, “is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.” And boy, are we going to get it, one way or another, come November.
So, Hillary Clinton has been diagnosed with pneumonia after she collapse while attending the WTC remembrance ceremony in New York City recently. I have seen many reports that she is really "sick" and sometimes wheelchair-bound. One well-respected medical doctor even speculated that she has Parkinson's Disease, which is a debilitating disease, based on his observations of her movements and behaviors. Normal people like us need to pass a medical exam and check-up before we are hired into a new company, and we have to "retire" from work at 65 or earlier. How come Hillary can still "run" for POTUS when she is already 70 years old?
Read this article about Hillary Clinton's health problem. It is believed that her physicians are hiding her Parkinson's Disease. Other leading physicians have been able to remotely diagnose her Parkinson's Disease through her behaviors during her public speeches over the last many months.
She was recently "publicly" diagnosed as having pneumonia but her official medical team neglected to be specific about what kind of pneumonia she ia suffering from. Read this article and you can find out.
Last week Clinton and Trump had a forum on an old navel raft carrier. I cannot remember who said it but I think they hit the nail right on the head when they said someone should cut the line and let it drift out to sea... It is a shame Jessie the Body Venturea didn't have the guts to try for the job... I think we are screwed with either of those smucks... Does anyone know how to apply for asylum in China? How to immigrate to China???
Neither Trump nor Clinton are ideal candidates for the position of POTUS. It is a shame and a pity that the U.S. has a population of over 300 million people and no one who is of high integrity, highly qualified and experienced with proven leadershio abilities has step up to the plate and offered his candidacy for the position, either as an independent candidate or with a major political party. This is one of the fallacies of the democratic system of government. It just goes on to prove that this system of government will eventually fail as a result of corruption as well.
@ppan We did, we all wanted Bernie but Hilary rigged it. Third party candidates we got Gary Johnson, who was governor of New Mexico for 8 years, where he left a budget surplus after coming in and the state was deep in debt. Jill Stein's also a candidate with many of Bernie's ideas. I love how much sh!t you talk on America.

Hi Wookie. I am not writing shit about America, only quoting what American journalists are saying about America to share with others in China because many here do not have access or so not know how to access these kinds of information, while I am fortunate enough to have them sent to may e-mail daily. The Globalists and Illuminatis are going to do their utmost to get their chosen \"candidate\" into the Oval Office in order to continue pursuing their own self-interests and objectives of world domination and subjecting everyone else under their own rules. It is good that they are meeting strong objections and resistance both within and outside of the USSA.
What do you think about that?
replied by Sagan on 13:47:08 28 Sep
ppan is a propagandist for the Communist Party of China. He\'s too busy building brown nosing them to notice any wrong doing.
This is a contest between the most hated man in the USA and the most hated woman in the USA. Voters will vote negativity. i.e. vote for Trump to stop Clinton and vice versa.
It's a loose loose situation.
replied by Sagan on 12:38:19 24 Oct
Yes, except that the loss to America and the world would be far, far greater with Trump in the Oval Office.
Anyway, he won\'t win, so let\'s focus on keeping Hillary in line for the next 4 years and look for someone better for 2020.
Mr. Shelly, if you want to write about organ harvesting you should post it somewhere else. This is not the place to discuss that topic.

I feel you\'re not even discussing anything, you are blatantly spouting biased unsupported rants to further whatever agenda you support. It is quite obvious what you\'re doing but also a little sad. I highly doubt you do enough research to try and truly support any claim to any stand you try to make. Also I feel in person you seem to probably not be one to trust in any form of information giving, but those who read your rants do seem entertained as I do. But as for the validity of any of your nonsense it really is just personal opinion and a very negative one. If you wish to be taken seriously I recommend you study more into your topics and be less biased and more intelligent with these discussions you will probably have more respect than being known as a troll or propagandist. I\'m just saying.....I like the tangents here more than the main topic hahaha
This is a choice between a rock and a hard place. On one hand there is this idiotic and egoistic S.O.B. who thinks he is the greatest in the whole wide world. On the other hand there is this criminal who has committed crimes like treason and corruption at the highest levels in the U.S. government that the party she represents wants to ignore and fool the American people. It will not be loss to the world. It will be a severe blow and curse for America whoever wins the election. Hopefully the present FBI re-investigation of Hillary's e-mails will result in her imprisonment, and the G.O.P. can decisively abandon Trump as their candidate and instead offer a really god and qualified person in his place. Wishful thinking, maybe, but what else can be done?
