The Mogul and the Babe - The New York Times

        Maureen Dowd is puzzled and bedazzled by Trumpism and the plain speaking she is certainly not used to in the circles she travels. I mean really, referring to Senator Warren as "Pocohontas."  That's Manhattan heresy.
         There's a lot of coverage of Trump this weekend. Even an OP/ED in our local paper of course stresses Trump's status as a playboy and ladies man.  Being on the Stern show is a deal killer for those folks, but for most it's just more grist for the anti-Trump mill as we all know about this very public man who at 69 has transitioned to successful businessman, father and Presidential candidate.
          All of this is considered odd....Odd ? In a country where the top issue and the White House's #1 priority is bathroom privileges, nothing is too over the top.

A bigger example of "odd": when Muslim extremists infiltrate our country taking advantage of the lack of common sense decisions about our security, from our president. Next, they kill dozens of Americans at a Christmas party. Next our current president and his inept crackpots in his administration, decide that backlash against Muslims (which never happens), is the subject he should speak to when addressing the nation.

Yes Trump is odd. But it goes to show that anyone willing to step up and declare "opposite day" is over, has the best shot at winning the white house. The American public is sick of being told that they think something that they really don't think. they are sick of being told not to believe their lying eyes. Be it SSM, all religions are created equal, that rarely used enhanced interrogations "don't work", or that it is us who brings on the hate from the rest of the world because of our behavior. And so now we got Trump.

Yup, the media will be lining up the women, much like the 700 or so, supposed relatives of Prince. 9:43, well said. We provoke so much hate in the world, that Islam, is murdering so many of their own, to prove how much they hate us.

an even bigger example of "odd": all the crazy conspiracy theorists like 9:43.

It will be interesting to see just how things work out. Duh Dans/D>>:s/Kumquats aren't stupid. They know the trouble this country is in, and they know how their blind obedience to party line principles has made it all happen. As a nation, with $19 Trillion dollars of vote buying debt in our kids' pockets, we are pretty well finished. Debt, disease, terrorism, the continued health care crisis, open borders, the corruption and bribe taking of our political leaders, and the stupidity of our people, yet golfers are more concerned with where the local confused penis empties itself. What these stooges don't realize, is Trump's draw is based on what we already have for a government. We have 40 year professional cronies, all getting rich by selling influence. People are willing to try anything, Dan. Your way of government controlled life sucks. Incomes are stagnant, and your beloved middle class is dying. Bums do well, as do those like you and I who managed to get on some government payroll. Regular people and their children enjoy no such advantages. No state jobs for them. No teaching jobs for them. No PX for them. Full tax bills for them. We are now like the old Soviet Union. We have a privileged class, like you and me, then we have the unwashed masses who need to be careful where they pee. What an American tradition we have provided them. And you wonder why a Trump candidacy has traction. It's because your people are criminals.

9:43 AM wins the internet for the day! Opposite day is over, that pretty much sums it up. And it goes so much further than the policies to stop evil people from killing us. These idiots opposed using the safest method available to transport oil from Canada to Texas where it could be refined under strict EPA oversight. Instead, it's being shipped and transferred (which happens to be the most dangerous part) multiple times to China where they have no pollution control regulations. But they're all about the environment...

Hermit.. Your a total establishment person.. They lie to the media and tell them how things are. The media tells it their way and thats what most accept a fact.. The CIA and certain politicans started using the name conspiracy theory.. No one believes a conspiracy theorist so tell the truth and laugh and thats what everyone will do when someone comes up with any theory other than whats been told to us.
As 1258 states we are 19 Trillion in debt so keep using the Federal Reserve so they can print money with nothing to back it..Disease is made up by fiction by medical suppliers and fed to the media to make us believe they are in danger and will buy the miracle drugs they produce.. Terrorism is something our CIA created years ago to make our war machine happy with the never ending war they always wanted..
As far as Hermit goes if he could read and understand and I doubt that, he could possibly have an opinion of his own

I think many of us are done with double talking fools in D.C. Might as well come out and tell it as it is. Trump didn't coin that name, he heard it someplace, and he repeated it. They say Abe could tell a lie. I saw some of the movies of that man's life, he was very outspoken for his time. He still was president, and did what had to be done at the time.
