Your president = male version of Sarah Palin. :tearlaugh:

How about something like the Darwin Awards For Politicos?  "We don't want to give you birth control or other options because blah-blah, but you can't have maternity leave IF you get pregnant and oh we don't want to pay for your pre-natal and post-natal stuff either. We're just going to pretend no one has sex (do they? do they really?) and babies don't happen. Why don't you just stay home and barefoot and pregnant and cook dinner for me like a nice wifey?" That's great, if you're not a single mom. That would be Grand Prize Winner of this last twelve months in my book.

Male? Where?  :ummm:
Do you know that between the nicknames of the 'president' one is "culbuto"?  :shock:
Of course, we have flamby (like a mark of flan), gros mou (hum, "flabby big"?) and so many others.

Before, we have another president: "naboléon". Less of nicknames, but several too.

You know the whole issue here is rather a mis-application of the ability to change peoples' thoughts and ways over time. Marshall McLuhan had it right: the Medium is the Message. We have purposely been divided - old wounds opened that were never all the way healed, because there were still injustices abounding from the old days underneath it all. One can of worms opens into yet another.

Instead, the media has been used to render us confused by mis-information, twisted truths, selective quotes taken out of context, and so forth, until the young people who don't know what happened before are functionally illiterate. The Climate arguments are a prime example. It's freeking obviously changing, and if you haven't noticed "What cave have you been living in?!" Quit arguing about it and do something instead of the same old, same old. Wail...we can't. We are hog-tied by pork-barrel, slandering, flip-flopping on issues constantly, corporate-whore politicians - the great lot of them. Some do try, but they're in the minority.

This is exactly why Donald Trump is gaining ground. Quit making sense, Donald. You're scaring me. Yes, I did something I probably wouldn't otherwise do. I went to YT and listened to the man's "I'm In" speech. I just wanted to hear what he had to say. I know what the others say. Okay, so: He can't be bought. Theoretically this is true. He's a business man and an extremely successful one! He points out all the stupid things the government does with taxes and wasting money. "This is a different time, things are falling apart rapidly and we need to do something fast." He says it straight out. He knows the games they play, because he's played them too. I don't agree with everything he said, but at the same time he said a lot of true things that matter. Things need to be fixed - period. Would he? That's the part I can't answer and why he's 'scary'. You know...he could be the next FDR or the next Slick Willie. No one can say...except him. And the fact he might put Sarah P in the Cabinet terrifies me. Secretary of the Interior? Nooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!! That would be tantamount to putting Ted Nugent in charge of "Homes for Wayward Teen Girls".

They've had Hillary's computer for some time now. Funny how they waited until now to release all this. What timing! 

Humans.......!

You haven't idea like i shout against media on tv, radio and web :psycho:
We have chance to have a radio show morning in week, and the journalist leave people talk. Not always with same ideas that him, but we have debates by this way.
Several topics by morning often.

I know i never liked obama. I don't like trump. Like berlusconni, hair implantation :psycho:  I'm not ure he has trust with Republicans. I'm afraid he will make something for they lost the next year  :lost:

It is definitely going to be one hell of a bumpy ride for us in the next election and it certainly will be chock full of mud slinging by all

Tis almost fun to read the "rubbish" being spouted by all in the running.

Avoiding those cute lil 'gotcha' questions (as SP calls them), flip-flopping on their previous stands on some things, avoiding answering difficult double-bind questions. Yeah...

Carly Fiorina doesn't like the Iran deal because 'they are not good actors' are 'untrustworthy', will not allow monitoring, etcetera, etcetera... and yet, under her as CEO of H-P, they sold computers to Iran until 2008, when the SEC said...."Wait a minute.... Yes, it's a loophole, but there are economic sanctions in place against Iran, per Bill Clinton. Tsk, tsk." Partnership was then dissolved.

Yet, your company was selling computer equipment to someone you don't trust in brokering a nuclear agreement through a foreign subsidiary with your knowledge? What was your point, Carly?

Her views on Planned Parenthood and Carson remarks about a Muslim being president are also "intriguing" :sigh:

I know.....

Is that like - "Yes, I'm black but I'm not a Muslim" in a round about way? Why else even say that!?

Yay, Scott Wanker dropped out   :crazysmile: :yippee:

I'm sure it's so the Koch Bros can put all their money toward Carly to beat Trump....

And Debbie Wasserman Schultz is 'holding the Democratic debates hostage' by making sure everything is about Hillary. She supports Hillary. So......

Carly against Hillary......ohhhh, scary-scary thought.

Then we could have yet another do nothing Congress who obstructed any and anything they did and we'll still be arguing over the SOS four or eight years from now, until it's lame...so lame. And then to the growing list of 'People Who Should Not Be President of the US' - Women.
