Word of the Day.....Sanctimony

     I chuckle when I see wet behind the ears reporters on TV talking about how unsettling this language from Trump was in a private conversation made public by NBC conveniently on the same day emails on the Clinton speeches to Wall Street were released. Clearly this was sat on till the best moment.
     I see the 18-35  crowd everyday and many of them can't speak a sentence without an F bomb or worse. The corporate media culture promotes misogyny in music and other entertainment. No one under fiddy opens a door for a woman when on a date, in fact they walk through the door first.
     So the faux outrage is just that....faux... And by the way how can NBC continue to employ Billy Bush under these circumstances ?
      On Trumps utterances, I am more offended by things he has said publicly but this little NBC set up is just guy-talk that was recorded. I was bothered more by making fun in public of the disabled guy or ripping on the judge in a case you have a stake in.
       I just hope there is a Bar Rescue marathon on tomorrow so I can get away from the nonsense.

Not a guy should be able to come on here to say they have never chased a girl they shouldn't have, never locker talked about it, and may have made the error of a unwanted touch or two. I still will be voting for Jill. But I still have no outrage for young Donald Trump's comment's. Big deal, he likes touching the opposite sex! What if he was taking about a guy, would anything be said?

No one your age should use the word "fiddy" in lieu of "fifty". You do this often and it is embarrassing. While the tape does not not shock me, it is rather sad that a sixty year old man talks like this. Rather pathetic. Goes back to the old saying that if you have to talk about it, you are probably not getting it. Trump was unfit to be president a week ago, so this tape changes nothing for me.

You run a bar, not a great comparison. Pretty sure even in your bar you're warning the 18-35 age group to watch their language if they're dropping the F bomb. If not, I feel bad for your bartenders and female customers.

1234 Northside bar flies vs Ives Street bar flies. There's a big difference.

this seems to be hard for some of the oldsters around here. the problem isn't that trump was lewd or vulgar by saying pussy. the problem is that he boasted of committing sexual assault with impunity.

Ray, you just earned your moniker. "Young" Donald Trump was 59, newly married to his 3rd wife and a baby on the way. Dump Trump.

Hey, wait a minute ... I live just off of Ives... damn. Never mind.

The left keeps lying about this. Trump sounded like he was literally when he described his approach of just kissing women. But when he said just grab them by the pussy, he was obviously horsing around and speaking in an exaggerated bravado locker room manner.

I've had a lot of women kiss me first and I never gave them permission. But I take responsibility because of the way I was dressed and acting toward them.

I realize that now in NY, thanks to people like silly jilly and her culture of sexual assault she has created in our military, and brought to a campus near you, we now have to get signed contracts to have sex on a NY campus, or else it is legally rape. But the reality is that when people have sex, it often starts with a kiss that the more assertive kisser did not receive permission to initiate. If it is reciprocated, it continues or escalates, if not received well, the assertive person backs off.

So far, no one has accused Trump of not taking no for an answer, unlike like Hillary's husband who has been accused many times of being too aggressive, to the point that he had to pay out almost a million dollars.

I remember when I said Dannie lived just off Ives Street. He cried, then threatened yet again to sue me. Never mind, per se.

I saw bull on 59! The spin dog news has stated 30 something all morning. You missed the point, and always do. Only 12 percent of Rep dubs have an issue! The same that never wanted him. This crap went down over ten years ago! He wants to fix a broken system, and he had sex. Omg nooooooo!

Of course if the Donald had said he was going to fondle some guys nuts, CNN would be fawning all over him by now

OK, Ray, lets do the math...Donnie is 70,this happened 11 years ago..which would make him.. 59. But, hey, if its on the internet or TV, it must be true, right??

You are missing the point. You don't fix a broken system by electing a clown that can't stop digging his own grave daily. With no help from others, he is doing it on his own.
