    Steve, it was about what I expected. But I was surprised that it wasn't a total waste of time. No surprise that the 2 that were asked if all lives matter just blathered around about black lives mattering and never said all did. What did surprise me was that 1 of them that wasn't even asked piped up and said all lives matter! Of course, he doesn't have a chance anyway so I guess he must have thought he might as well be honest. No surprise that Slick Hilly and Bernie didn't offer their opinion.

    It was kind of funny the way they fell all over each other claiming to be more "progressive" than the rest.

    No surprise that they think the biggest threat to us today is the 2nd Amendment and "climate change". Apparently they want to change the law from "you can't kill people with your guns" to "no, we really mean it, you can't kill people with your guns". Everyone in America needs to go back and read about the history of Germany in the 1930s. If we don't learn from history, we are bound to repeat it.

    I need to go take some ibuprofen for my sore neck. I have whiplash from watching the "climate change" debate. First we were going into a new ice age. Then it was getting too hot. Now since we know it is neither, we have to call it "climate change". Well of course it changes! Everything does. Have you ever heard "if you don't like the weather just wait 10 minutes"? For those of you who are so open-minded that your brains have fallen out, the climate was changing long before man was around. Time is a measure of change. When we quit having change, we will quit having time.

    I suspect that Uncle Joe was the big winner. After he caught his breath from laughing (which may well have been the next day) he likely told his people to sign him up for the primaries.

    Of course, the other winner was Trump who picked up a lot of twitter followers during the debate.

    lets be real;

    Republicans will not pass a bill to give Obama an unknown amount of money for infrastructure because Obama will use it to keep Obamacare going or spend it on other things with no way to pay it back. Obama is suppose to come up with a plan on paying back the money but he can't.

    Hell Obama has never drawn up a budget for the Government to run on. That is a flat out Violation of his Constitutional duty as a President to do each year in office. He has never done it once. He only spends and tells his democratic followers that Congress spent it and has the raise the debt ceiling so he can keep running Our Country further into Bankruptcy.

    Where do you think the money comes from to repair all the roads and bridges that have been repaired? Obama didn't pay for it out of his pocket. It came from the Debt Ceiling expense account, just like all the other Taxpayer Programs, including PP.

    Think about it if you can?

    Congress has to keep raising the debt Ceiling to put enough money in Obama's spending account to cover Planned Parenthood as well as ALL the Entitlement Programs. That is the proof you need to know that Congress has paid the bills that Obama has created PLUS the Entitlement Accounts.

    I am not against equal pay for equal work for women.

    Actually I would agree to paying women MORE than Men because it is the women who actually runs and maintains the businesses. The men can only do what they do, because the woman have provided them with information and instructions and detailed paperwork to do the finish work, close the deal, or go to court fully prepared.

    However when my wife had our children she stayed home and raised the children and kept them as safe as she could plus keep the house running like a Big Corporation must be run.

    She did want to go to work to get away from the house and have some spending money she could call her own.

    With 6 kids it cost us more money for a baby sitter than she was making at her job. I let her keep working because that is what she wanted to do.

    Now the women have to work because they don't have a working husband that can pay the bills the family masses. Today both parents have to work to make ends meet.

    So now women also want to be paid to the have children so they can stay home and raise them. How Brain Dead is That?

    So you get a couple weeks off to have the baby with pay. That's great if your insurance covers it. However you can not expect your boss to pay you to stay home and raise your children. That is what babysitters are for. A woman know what's involved with having a child, or at least she should if she is going to have a child.

    If the law said her boss had to pay her for as long as she needed to stay home with her child, who is going to pay her boss for the time lost and money he has to pay her? If a woman wants to take off, FINE, but without pay after her insurance stops paying. Her job should be held for so many days then her job goes to someone else.

    If a woman needs more time off, she must get a better insurance plan or have a man who can pay the bills while she remains home.

    Shouldn't Planned Parenthood be teaching women how to plan for having a baby and juggle her job at the same time and to wait until she is married first before she starts a family? I would think that would be what Planned Parenthood would be all about, not abortions.

    Women can have their Cake and eat it too, just not at the expense of her boss or business. To take off to have a baby with no limit on the time off and no limit on the money she can receive while staying home would only encourage young women to have babies while staying home and making money too!

    Hummm, Sounds like a good plan if you can do it!

    Rocket Valentine;

    Yes, the Democratic debate was a stark contrast to the childish mudslinging squabble we saw from the Republicans. It was almost as if it was rehearsed. No matter I agree with you 100%. The Republicans didn't show me anything except Trump. They did exactly what everyone said they would do. They didn't learn a **** thing.

    trump was the only one who had any plans about what needed to be done and how he would do it.

    The only thing the Democrats were talking about in foreign affairs was talking about agreeing with Obama who came up yesterday and admitted he was wrong and made mistakes in his foreign policies. The democrats are prepared to follow Obama's mistakes in the next 8 years if they lasted that long if elected.

    Hillary was excited because no one asked her any questions about the scandals she has created for herself.

    They agreed not to talk about her emails which I thought was great. I personally am getting tired of hearing about them but it keeps changing every single day. She is just digging herself in deeper.

    I believe since the FBI is investigating her emails, we should just sit back and wait for their findings. However 403 emails were classified emails which means she violated the law.

    Bernie didn't show me anything that would make me want to put him in office. He is another Obama also. Biden is waiting to see if anyone will be a challenge to him before he gets in. He is saving his money for a sure thing. They all put Hillary on a pedestal so I think Joe may be intimidated by Hillary now.

    Hillary wants to bring the undocumented aliens in and feed, cloth, house and give them free educations and Obamacare Medical Insurance and unquestioned citizenship no matter who they are or where they come from.

    That would include over 200,000 new Syrians; young men but very few women! Looks like fighters to me and not peaceful family men.

    The democrats spoke on MORE Gun control laws. What part of "CAN NOT BE INFRINGED UPON" don't the democrats understand?

    Gun control laws can only be applied to US Citizens or (Government employees and federal citizens). If they are going to run for the most powerful position in America, they should learn what the law says BECAUSE Ignorance of the Law is no Excuse! Everyone is suppose to know the law or be punished by it.

    Children being shot in schools is uncalled for and a horrible experience for our country.

    But did you not read the article yesterday in the T-G about the boy bringing a loaded gun with hollow points to the High school here in Shelbyville? What was that all about? Did this young man not understand that was wrong? The young man (against his parents wishes and heartbreaks) should be tried as an adult and charged with attempted terror attack. I am sure he wasn't bringing it to school as a show and tell class.

    This is a good example of what will the brain dead authorities do. The perfect opportunity to put the existing gun control laws along with the don't bring guns to school law, and the what was a young man from another county doing at the High School into practice? Will they send him to reform juvenile school or use the current Gun Control Laws against the youth?

    I bet he won't be punished by any existing Gun Control laws and if he is they will be minor charges.

    So Rocket V, looks to me like it just might be a normal everyday life and we better get use to it or protect the schools like they were able to do this time.

    I am sorry RV, I don't understand your Brain Dead comment about climate change and referring it to "The typical republican belief that all the polluting we do to the earth has absolutely no effect at all. It's all a hoax."

    You should do some research on the EPA before you mouth off. There over 14,000 employees working for the EPA to investigate, charge and punish violators of EPA Regulations not to mention cleaning the area contaminated. Here's what happens, the EPA charges polluters less in fines than it costs them to make the mess. It's cheaper for then to pay a small fine and just keep polluting.

    Whose fault is that? You want to blame the Republicans but I think there are some Democrats that sit in Congress too.

    Here's what the democrats said they want to do; Make stricter EPA Regulations and hire more EPA employees.

    The Environmental Protection Agency has approximately 15,913 employees right now to do the job that isn't getting done according to the Democratic Candidates.

    MORE EPA Regulations would require 230,000 new employees, at a taxpayer cost of $21 billion

    in the near future that would come to a total of up to 6.1 million employees.

    Do you brain dead democrats see what that means? The debt ceiling will have to be raised again for the EPA Government Agency that isn't doing it's job now. The only thing EPA is doing is damaging smaller businesses with stupid regulations and letting the big corporations pollute all they want.

    This would mean jobs for sure, but they would only be government employees with a badge and gun. Don't we have enough of those guys walking around bullying people.

    Streams and river are being polluted but again by big corporations that get away with it. Of course a third of all rivers will be polluted with woodworm.

    Now just how does that connect to climate change and Global Warming? How did the republicans do that.

    Pollutants in the air is the biggest cause? Look at all the shuttles launched into outer space burning Rocket Fuel all the way from Ground level to Outer space. You mean to tell me that all the burned Rocket Fuel Vapor trails don't heat up the atmosphere? What about the holes NASA - Kennedy Space Center have shot through our Ozone layers? Shouldn't holes in our Ozone cause everything to be sucked off the earth and into space? Guess not! But if there are holes in our ozone level it would surely allow for some extra global warming. If not please explain to me what is causing the Global Warming.

    And... what do the democrats think they can do about Global Warming?

    The whole democratic Debate was a bunch of men who want to do things that are impossible for them to do.and of no value to the American people.

    I will say one more thing here.

    Hillary Clinton can not give any women a bigger pay check unless they work for the Government as a foreign Agent. Hillary can not force companies to pay longer maternity pay except government agencies. Hillary Clinton can not give ANY WOMAN any rights at all. She can only grant civil privileges and she can take them back anytime she wants to Just like the Devil gives and takes away.

    When I watched the Democratic debates, all I saw was Girly-men following the loser, Hillary Clinton.

    You deserve more handouts

    Big oil

    Climate change

    More freebies

    You don't need to watch the debate when they've said the identical thing for decades.

    The overwhelming majority of democrat platforms are based on avoiding responsibility and trying to make others pay their way.

    Start with a victim mentality and you can predict 90% of what they will say.

  • Of course this debate would look different from the GOP debate. CNN is firmly in the tank for the Democrats and will frame the debate/questions very differently than for the GOP.

    I didn't watch them either. The democrat party is socialist. Bernie Sanders self describes himself as socialist and even refers to items of his agenda as "Planks" which is the same terms used in the "Planks of Communism". They are all career politicians who will continue things on the same trend they have been on all their career. They believe in more/bigger government, the plundering (taxation) of people by government instead of the prevention of plundering (injustice) by government.

    Climate change and pollution are 2 different issues. Both exist! One, (pollution) is man-made and needs to be address. The other (climate change) is not man made and is being used as a scare tactic to gain more power/control and plunder.

    Pollution simply means living responsibly and not trashing the place out. But, just as pollution is created by man, it can be cleaned up by man. The earth is good and balanced. Man, not so much.

    Climate change is a naturally occurring phenomenon and the very idea that man thinks he should interject himself into controlling the global climate should be a cause of concern for everyone.

  • Just a thought, when I see derogatory adjectives before or after a party affiliation or person's name, I am usually biased against the comment that follows. I might even agree, but may not even read it to know.

    If I truly want my opinion to be read by as many as possible, I do my best to contain my derogatories.

    There was only one person wearing the pants in the Demo Debates and that was Hillary! They all put Hillary above themselves and will wonder why they won't be nominated to run.

    The irony of it all is after they gave Hillary the Crown for the first debate and they step down proud of themselves, Hillary will be sent to prison and there won't be a demo to run the country.

    Obama is a good example of how a Democrat will run the Country.

    Weak, no leadership, no direction, no answers, no plans, no budget, no allies, no truth, no military Forces and no Common Sense.

    Obama did get the Nobel Peace Prize BEFORE he did anything, so I don't know why he received it to this day. What Peace did he bring to the World. He has turned everyone against everyone and all the World Countries against the United States. He has decreased the Good Credit of the United States for the first time in history. That should get him a Nobel Peace Prize. He has sat back and let Isis grow much larger than his JV and watched as Isis continues to kill innocent people worldwide. He has refused to protect his investments in his projects that are bad decisions. He has bankrupted America more than any terrorist group ever could.

    The only Thrown Obama should be allowed to sit on should have a flush handle on it.

    If you don't like Derogatory remarks, you don't get to read much of your blogs, do you?

    The people in this country need to be awaken. They are wandering around like Zombies not knowing what is going on around them. How are they going to protect their own lives let alone their family members, when Home Land Security came out with the most intelligent advise to Americans to treat an attack as if it was a Zombie Attack! Maybe they really know something after all! Nah! They are just another foreign Government Agency.

    Let's look at Obama and his latest failure which I am sure he thinks is a success.

    We trained rebels in Syria and armed them on the night that Benghazi was attacked by the CIA.

    Now we are trying to bomb Isis in Syria and Putin is bombing the rebels our CIA Agents armed and trained.

    What is Obama doing about it? NOTHING! He has just sacrificed the rebels to Putin just like he did with the ambassador & 4 Americans at the embassy in Benghazi.

    Obama has no feelings of guilt for doing it either, nor the loss of 500 Million dollars he spent training the rebels.

    And don't forget Hillary was the Secretary of State at that time and knew all about the arms being sent to Syria that night from North Africa and through Libya.

Even 2 republicans have already admitted it,first McCarthy then Richard Hanna who are congressmen.This has gone on longer than Watergate and cost tax payers millions.When they find nothing new or no smoking gun then they will have to invent a new conspiracy theory.Major Podliska,a conservative intelligent officer of Air Force and Benghazi committee advisor was fired after calling it a witch hunt to bring down Hillary.The republican party is falling apart.How can Sui call people stupid and braindead and write "The only THROWN Obama should sit on should have a flush handle on it?

    lets be real;

    Sanders was right! Even I am tired of hearing about those **** emails. I want to see what the FBI comes up with. The Federal Bureau of Investigation would not be investigating Hillary Clinton's email unless there was a reason to investigate it and remember, Obama just said on the 60 minute show that Hillary didn't have any emails that would be harmful to our National Security on her server. How would Obama know that unless he knew what Hillary had on her email server? Sounds like Obama needs to be investigated also.

    It all started with the Benghazi Investigation. In Hillary's own words, "What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator."

    The Benghazi investigations were doing just that. Trying to find out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from happening again.

    Obama and Hillary just gave the embassy up to the terrorists to use as a party house raising their flag on it to humiliate Americans.

    What did that teach us about preventing it from happening again? What about the embassy in Yemen when the Marines were forced to leave without their weapons. Is that something we learned about Benghazi and was able to surrender to that terrorist country which Obama called a Success?

    Just when will we learn what happened at Benghazi so we can prevent it from happening again?

    It looks like the FBI will have to step in and find out what really went on with Benghazi, although I have already explained exactly what happened that night.

    All the emails came up only after they discovered Hillary was using a private server for all her emails. The FBI will be finding the emails send to the State Dept, err I mean, Hillary's private email server, and the emails sent by Hillary during the time of the attack on Benghazi.

    Now we are talking about finding out what happened at Benghazi and doing something to prevent it from happening again.

    Let the FBI do its job and find out what really happened during the Benghazi Attack that night.

    We (the people who are not Brain Dead) have already heard Obama and Hillary explain that it was a Terrorist attack after telling the people several times that it was just a protest against a video that went bad. Both Obama and Hillary and even Rice knew it was a Terrorist attack but refused to say that to save Obama's political career which had already gone down the toilet by then.

    So if you want to know what really happened, "What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator."

    be patient and see what the FBI comes up with.

    Now here is what the Democrats called it: "This is a political witch hunt." They must have spent a lot of time thinking up this slogan. A Political WITCH hunt! What an appropriate name for Hillary, "WITCH" !

    Tell me Demos aren't Brain Dead when they come up with a name like "Witch" for their #1 Presidential Candidate. That is what they will be voting for. She is not a Lady nor a Woman who will help one woman after getting in office.

    Republican McCarthy admits being Brain Dead and backed out of the running for Speaker of the House. Republican Richard Hanna is a bad apple too and will more than like be voted out of office in the next election.

    I didn't get a Taxpayer form to fill out for paying Taxes for the investigations on Benghazi. I have told every one you as a taxpayer are not paying a dime for any of those taxpayer threats. The money comes from the Republicans raising the debt Ceiling against the voice of the people. It is all just added in on Obama's demand for more money to pay on the debt he has accumulated.

    When the FBI is done, that will be the last word on it unless she is found guilty of something. She may be innocent of Benghazi but guilty of a hundred other things now that they can read all her emails and the emails of every employee under her at the time.

    Major Podliska, spoke without thinking of what he was saying and it came back and bit him on his

    derriere.

    The Demos are Brain Dead and the Repubs are falling apart! Why is that?

    We must not have a great Leader who can bring life back into the people of America.

    Let's ask Obama what he is doing!

    I see Obama and his Administration is doing their best to turn Israel against America and its people.

    Can you not see anything wrong about what Obama and his Admin is doing everyday? Obama is going to give himself and his white house workers a raise but not going to give us a raise on our SS.

    I may be wrong but my guess is that all White House employees get free Obamacare Insurance too. Is your Obamacare Insurance Free?

    Time to flush the thrown!

    Did you hear what the Brain Dead Demos said about Black Lives Matter? Only one democrat said all lives matter.

    What about the Latino Lives they all want to bring in and feed and shelter and give medical attention to.

    That shows you how serious they are about Latino Lives after they get them in and register them to vote democrat.

    Well, Hell, what about the Indians, the undocumented Syrian Muslims and Iraqi Muslims and U.S. Muslims. Don't their Lives Matter? We have Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Cubans, South Americans and people from just about every country in the world. No one talks about their lives mattering.

    Only the Republicans seem to believe all Lives matter. Time to think about what you are thinking about.

    lets be real?, keep thinking and maybe you can come up with something good. Of course the dens are tired of the emails--they don't want her to go to jail. If it takes a witch hunt to find out why b o and slick hilly let 4 Americans die then we need to have a witch hunt. No big surprise she got caught lying again.

    The Democrats don't look at Obama that way, they only know that he is throwing Hillary under the Campaign Bus.

    If she gets the nomination, Obama will have to give her a pardon and I don't think he wants to do that.

    If Hillary doesn't make it after Thursday's Testimony before the investigating committee, Joe Biden will slither into the campaign.

    I believe if Hillary answers the questions with I don't know and etc. like before, the people will see for themselves what Hillary is inspite of all her campaign promises.

    Joe Biden is waiting for Thursday's committee meeting before he decides to run for office or not. Just think for those capable of doing that, if Hillary makes a fool out of herself Thursday before the world, Joe just has to say he is running and the democrats will vote for him because the other 4 candidates gave their voters to Hillary in the very first debate without a fight. Now they will look stupid if they say they want their voters back. It will be too late because Joe Biden will get Hillary's voters.

    All I heard was people didn't want Obama impeached because that would put Joe Biden in Office, so I don't think very many people will vote for Biden. They will all scatter their votes out to all the candidates so any one can win the nomination.

    Joe Biden will be no match against Trump.

    The only other thing they can do is try to amend the 22nd. amendment.

  • The republicans must be happy now since the troops will stay in Afghanistan, that is what they wanted.I am waiting for their complaints.There is nothing to impeach Obama for.Who ever gets the republican nomination will only get about the same or less number of voters as Romney.Hillary should say what the great Reagan said when questioned about selling weapons to Iran"I don't recall", on Tuesday.When people say Black lives matter it does not mean that all lives don't, it means that black lives matter also.Which to some in America black lives don't seem to matter.

    That's what Hillary has been saying plus she would say I don't know. It sounded to me like she was saying she didn't know anything about the job she was suppose to do as the Secretary.

    Now Hillary won't have to say anything because it will all be on her emails she sent and received.

    You haven't listened to anything that has been happening in the east have you! It has all been explained several times for anyone to understand the importance of what should happen.

    After the next president takes over then you will see what has happened over the past 6 years.

    Not only should Obama be impeached but his whole white house staff and employees should be imprisoned for treason.

    lets be real?, do ALL black lives matter or just the ones that are threatening cops or resisting arrest?

  • My My My !!!! LOL.... this topic sure brought out some interesting comments. Lets see, we have good Ole Mike - he has his opinion on the debates but gosh admits he didn't even watch them - how wonderfully informed and factual might that be ( Roll eyes) then we have the person who so colorfully commentated about calling a spade a spade. Geeze with a racist sounding comment like that can we safely guess hes is all about tea party ? Except far a few points most of what I have read here are hate mongers spewing predisposed talking points that they have been blabbing about for years.

    UNTIL people can put the hate away, and truly look at the issues, truly put our country before the hate they slither in nothing will ever change.

    This debate, like it or not, was very different from the Republican debate. It did not revolve around spewing hate and attacking others, and what they would tear apart, but instead it was geared towards the issues and what they intend to do for the country how they would improve things. It was nice to see a party finally tell us why they are the better party and what they will do for us as opposed to the republicans who offer only attacks and hate

    with no actual answers of what they will do for the country - only what they will take away from it.

    SO how about some of you from the right tell us what positive things your party stands for, how they will help the 99% FLOURISH instead of what they will rip apart and take away to increase the profits of the 1%. Sell your party and what good they have to offer,instead of try to destroy the other party.... Why are they better for America instead of why the others are worst....

    I have to wonder why some people think telling the truth is racist. No wonder it comes from the math whizzes that think the republicans are against 99% of the people. The dem debate was filled with their same old tired message of hating those that are able and willing to be successful. The only debate was who would take more from the makers and give more to the takers.

  • wonderwhy, from your comments I surmise that you align with the Democrats or at least "the Left". If that is wrong, please correct me. It seems you did not mind throwing in a few barbs of your own and easily point out something that has been said about your side bringing up the race card first.

    I believe the response about "calling a spade a spade" was regarding stevemills comment about labeling people "Brain Dead" and had nothing to do with race. The phrase originated in Ancient Greece, by the way.

    You are the one who labelled it racist, so which is the hate mongering side? In case you need hate mongering defined, it is "the act or practice of stirring up hatred or enmity" from Webster dictionary.

    I would also remind you that BOTH sides are represented in the previous comments and your comment about "spewing predisposed talking points that they have been blabbing about for years" applies to your side as well. A good example of this would be your own comments.

    Just a few thoughts for the morning.

    Exactly right Timeline. The phrase is only racist in the minds of those that want it to be. Sometimes I am wrong when I assume things, but I assume wonderwhy is a white person. That also would make them racist according to the new world order of left wing ideology.

  • Gosh I love where this topic is going... I recall about 8 years ago when Obama first came into the picture and I said he was a socialist Muslim loving "person' I was called a racist and could not get thru to the kool aid drinking sheep who thought him to be our next King that I didn't care what color his skin is that I was just smart enough to read his books and see what he wanted for America: And I didn't like what I had read. I could be jerk and say "I told Ya so" but that's not how I am ... I am just sad America had to suffer though his "reign "

    I can say ObamaCare is a complete and total mess just like I said it would be: Immigration is uncontrollable: Entitlements are killing the working people to the point of putting the middle class in the poor house: unemployment has become the "underemployed" : and his promise of bringing our troops home has gone out the window.

    I was never a Republican I voted Democrat my entire life but during the Obama sensation I did vote Independent . This year I am sure Trump is the answer . I do not expect him or anyone else to solve all our problems but I feel sure he will not create any new ones and will fix our Country the best he can. You may not like Trump because he says what he thinks but that is exactly why I like him.

    And I definitely need a" like" button for some of these post

  • The Benghazi meeting should be very interesting Thursday,since Trey Gowdy has released a CIA source's name.After going back and forth with democratics about how sensitive the information was and whether its presence in Hillary's private email account constituted a security breach,he broke the same rule he is witch hunting her for.Sound like the FBI needs to investigate and form a committee.This is just one more nail in the Benghazi committee's coffin.More evidence that this committee is incompetent and has no credibility.

    Dianatn, sorry the koolaid drinkers called you a racist just for speaking the truth but that is just the way our world is nowadays. If anyone says anything about anyone of color (except white)no matter how true and how much not related to skin color, they are automatically labeled a racist. Sometimes even the koolaid drinkers like lets be real? forget that and say racist things about Carson just because he speaks the truth and has common sense. I think a dream ticket would be Trump/Carson.

    wonderwhy;

    The stage has been set and all the facts are on the table. You come in and ask what is going on! You need to go back and re-read the blog so you will know where we are and can join in without us having to re educate you in what is going on with this election.

    You are starting with Racist and Hate. No one has said anything Racist except the Democrats.

    Please inform me as to what has been said that is Racist made by anyone other than a Democrat!

    The Tea Party? Where did that come from? No one has been talking about the Tea Party! I haven't heard anything about or from the Tea Party for months! Where did you hear anything from the Tea Party and what was it? The Tea Party isn't doing anything as far as I can tell and I watch the news everyday.

    Ole Mike hasn't made any comments one way or the other, but staying out of it. He is just allowing us to speak out with the TRUTH. Sorry if it hurts!

    It is hard not to sound Racists because the Democrats make everyday words Racist. You make it what you want it to be because you don't know what is being said.

    I am sick of all this Racist Talk because it is all coming from one side - the side of the democrats because they don't have anything else to say that would defend what they do.

    A lot of the hate talk is nothing more than the truth twisted by the democrats to make the republicans look bad.

    That's not going to work any more. People are wising up and seeing what is really going on.

    I watched the Democrats debate each other and there was no debating going on. They were all taking like they were at an Sunday School Ice Cream Social, praising Hillary Clinton as their Leader and do-gooder.

    They gave their voters to Hillary because they are all Brain Dead and do not have the common sense to run our country or any Public Office.

    Please list the things that your party spoke on and what they would do if elected president to help our country or the people and how they would finance all that money they want congress to give them to enact their dreams.

    Your democratic party just wants to continue doing what Obama has started with no advantage to the people or the world.

    Bigger Government, More Tax, Socialist Country where the government provides for everyone, which is communism, do away with Capitalism where people can earn what they work for?

    No plans for bringing jobs to America or helping the economy unless it is hidden in the EPA enlargement Bill they want to pass at Taxpayer expense. Maybe send more money to Iran so Iran can get nuclear weapons sooner for their missiles. Is your party going to protect our ally, Ukraine, from Russia or our $500 Million Dollar Fighters trained by our CIA against Russia Bombs. Will your party help Israel when Iran attacks them or send money to Iran to help them bomb Israel too.

    Is your party going to make the government smaller or enlarge it with thousands MORE of EPA and IRS employees or help our Country?

    Is your party really going to supply undocumented Immigrants with Soc Sec, Drivers Licenses, Food Stamps, Low Income Housing, Free Medical Insurance and free voter ID Cards or do something to help our Country?

    Is your party more interested in More Gun Control Laws that will do absolutely nothing to stop crime?

    Make me feel good! List all the GOOD things your Hillary will go for this Country!

    Just getting someone in Office who won't do what the Democrats want to do would be a big improvement even if they didn't do anything.

    All the things that Trump has stated is everything we need done for this Country!

    lets be real;

    Thursday will just be the beginning of it.

    Remember the Benghazi committee did everything in their power to get the documents that they needed to investigate the details and reason for the Benghazi Attack.

    Hillary Lied and refused to answer the questions and only answered with stupid answers that didn't give them any answers.

    A judge finally made her tell the truth under penalty of perjury, so now she will have to answer the questions correctly or she will be committing perjury.

    It was the Benghazi investigation that discovered Hillary had a secret server that she was using for her emails. So by NOT answering the questions she was asked, lead to the committee finding out about her private server and emails. She screwed herself by not answering the questions.

    She should have told the truth and say that there was a covert mission going on that night that she could not talk about. However, she did talk about that covert operation about that night on the Greta Van Susteren show one night. I explained what happened in a couple of my earlier comments on other blogs.

    Now the FBI is investigating Hillary's email and several emails date back to the time Benghazi was attacked. So now the TRUTH will come out. Good or Bad for Democrats or Republicans!

    Like I said earlier, WITCH hunt is the perfect name for the Democrat, Hillary Clinton and the Democrats gave it to her. Even Obama doesn't want anything to do with her and he is the worse President ever.

    Only the Democrat Candidates liked Hillary enough to give her their voters.

    Trey Gowdy revealed the name of a CIA source's name. The four men killed at Benghazi were CIA Security members who were named. Also there may be a lot more CIA Agents who will be named in the investigation as the investigation continues. The CIA Agents who lived to testify so far have been named.

    You wouldn't be trying to start a warlock hunt for Trey Gowdy would you. He is just one of many who are interested in finding out what went wrong and prevent it from happening again.

    Again I will repeat Hillary Clinton's own words: "What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator."

    What part of that do you NOT Understand? Hillary herself wanted to have an investigation to find out what happened and do everything we can do to prevent it from happening again.

    Actually she did not want an investigation! She just wanted her people to figure out what to say and do nothing to change anything, which she did!

    Please tell me what was done by Hillary or Obama "to Find Out what went wrong and prevent it from happening again"? They did nothing, but Trey Gowdy has worked several months trying to find out what happened against Hillary's lies and deceit. And Obama's too! What a pair! Now they can't stand each other. That's how the democrats think. Do your dirt then blame someone else.

    Yet Obama said Hillary didn't have any classified information on her server. How would Obama know that unless he was in on what she was doing!

    You need to stop listening to other democrat news hosts and listen to the news itself without the false explanations. If you can't decide what the news is without some one explaining it to you, maybe you should stop watching the news. Stop and think about it before you listen to others. Think for yourself.

    Hillary doesn't have a prayer NOW!

    You got most of it right, but you weren't listening close enough. What he said was, He thinks it is GREAT!

    He thinks it is wonderful to take people's private property to use for public use if it can be used to help many people, but not for private enterprises. He also emphasized on paying them for their property before using it to build something for thousands of people, making better use of the property.

    The government does it all the time, so why not someone who will pay you more than the value of your property. A lot of people are ran off their land or even killed for their property for some special building project. The government isn't going to pay you more for your property than Trump would. He can buy my property anytime. Listen to the news and not what some news host is saying.

  • But in reality hasn't personal property been taken for public use for years? I seem to remember TVA taking lots of personal property for Normany Dam project of course they were paid but they were given the option of either selling or be flooded out. It also looks like lots of personal property being used for 231 road expansion... just saying this nothing new but perosnally I agree I would much rather sell my property to Trump than basically give it to the government. If that's the worse you can come up with on Trump it should be a No Brainer to Vote Trump. I agree Trump/Carson is the winning combo

  • Just type in Trump on Eminent Domain and watch the video with Chris Wallace and see him dance around his answers.Trump should not be able to take anyone's property just becauce he is rich.He is worse than the government, taking property to make roads better and safer benefits everyone,Trump is only making himself and his buddies richer.Dianatn its ok if you want to sell your property but do you think it is right for him to force someone into it? Some peoples property mean more to them than money.Some have sentimental value and have been in their family for years. Sounds like a dictator to me.Fair share you are right about Trump and Carson being a Dream Team because he will have a hard time keeping Carson awake.You have to look at the man twice to see if he is still breathing.

    lets be real;

    I do not know of any law that says you have to sell your property to anyone for any reason, EXCEPT when the Government wants it. Then you accept their pay or lose out completely.

    Trump is not the government and can not force anyone to sell. That is why he offers a lot more money for the property he needs.

    Haven't you ever read the U.S. Constitution where it says, "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." (Amendment IV)

    And (Amendment V) "...nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, [without due process of law]; nor shall private property be taken for public use, [without just compensation]."

    If Trump is President he won't be allowed to build projects that will put money in his pocket.

    I saw a photo once that showed a small business at the foot of a high rise building. The owners would not sell so the huge building had to be built around the small business building on the street.

    Carson is kinda like Joe Biden then isn't he? Joe is always sleeping in the back row when the camera spans around on someone giving a speech.

    This is for all the Democrats;

    I was going to expose Joe Biden for what he is. Yesterday Joe Biden told the world that when he spoke to foreign countries they knew he was the Vice President and agreed with Obama because he was ordered by Obama to sit in on every meeting that Obama had.

    For the Brain Dead people, that means that Vice President Joe Biden knew exactly everything that Obama and Hillary Knew about Benghazi, the murders and the emails Hillary Clinton wiped with a rag.

    That means Joe Biden is just as guilty of the crimes committed by Obama and Hillary because he has known all about these things and has not said anything to the people. They are all liars and deceivers and can not be trusted with something as important as our Country and the lives of the people in our country.

    -- Posted by sui on Wed, Oct 21, 2015, at 12:05 PM
  • *

    Continued;

    Joe Biden said he was NOT running for President, then gave his first Campaign speech.

    Joe Biden is giving Hillary Clinton our Country to run just like she ran the Secretary of State job she had that turned the Foreign Countries against us.

    However, if Hillary Clinton can not run because she is a criminal, Joe Biden will run in a heart beat before giving the election to the other democrats running. Joe Biden should also be arrested with Clinton and Obama in my book. They all three knew what was happening and done nothing to stop it or correct it but just lied to the people about it making fools out of themselves.

    And the sick part about it is... The Democrats can't see it and how stupid they are for not have the common sense to see the emperors are not wearing any clothes.

    All it takes is just everyday common sense. It isn't taught in school. You have to learn it on your own by stopping and think what is going on around you. Does it help you or hinder you? Is it good or bad? Does it make sense? How does it benefit you or does it benefit the government? What will you have to give up to use or keep it?

    Common sense! It is a thing of the past.

    Just like the Zombie Attack this morning. A man attacked a man and bit him and several other people who tried to stop his attack. Go figure!

    I will feel sorry for any of the Republicans who have their Super Pac go after trump!

    They will be ending their career as a Presidential candidate and the life of their Super Pacs.

    As it stand right now, I believe Hillary will be chosen as the democratic nominee. Which is a good thing because none of the other democrats were worth listening to, including Joe Biden.

    All of the democrat candidates conceded to Hillary because they can't handle the job of being President. All 4 of those girly-men conceded to Hillary Clinton without even knowing it.

    They couldn't get elected now if their lives depended on it.

    Joe Biden also conceded to Hillary Clinton, so there is no need for him to try to run now unless Hillary gets arrested for something the FBI finds.

    Joe Biden isn't as good as he wants the American people to think! He confessed that he was sitting in on every meeting that Obama called. That means Joe Biden knows everything that Obama and Hillary knew.

    Yet Ole Joe Biden did NOT reveal anything to the American people. He agreed to everything Obama and Hillary said.

    Is that the kind of Man (Joe Biden) or Woman (Hillary Clinton) YOU want running our Country? Stop and think of how that would be to have another Liar running the Country for another 8 years! No Jobs, Bigger Government, No Guns to defend yourself, No freedom of Speech, No freedom from searches and seizures, undocumented Mexicans and Syrians and Iraqis and South Americans and Iranians and Central Americans taking your food stamps, your welfare checks, your low income housing apartments, your medicaid, your government loans, your religious rights, and your JOBS.

    In the middle of Hillary's talks today, she turned on Obama and started blaming him for not sending help to Benghazi.

    Now we have to see what Obama has to say about Hillary's accusations tonight!

    I believe Obama will really throw Hillary under the Benghazi Select Committee Bus after her remarks today, If and whenever he sees it on the news.

    Hillary thinks the Benghazi Select Committee is rough, wait until she has to go up against Trump!!!

    When Trump gets through with her, the Benghazi Select Committee will have more information to take Hillary for another ride.

    The Democrats never asked any questions because they are so Brain Dead they couldn't even think of a question to ask Hillary. They even told Hillary what to say.

    The democrats are really nice people! Nice to each other and Isis, terrorists, EPA Agents, IRS Agents, Iranians, Russians, Syrians, Iraqis, and Undocumented Aliens and Bigger Government with Bigger Taxes and Control over them. I can see how they need the government to control them because they just can't think for themselves.

    The democrats couldn't see how Hillary was play acting and pretending she was hurt by questions and situations as the demos were praising her for her Lies and killer instincts. They couldn't see Hillary act like she was disturbed by the lives she took by ignoring over 60 requests for help and reinforcement in their time of need for help.

    Did any of you democrats hear Hillary Today when she was talking about the guns taken out of Libya on the night of the Benghazi attack and sent to Syria? That was what the CIA was doing in the compound down the road from the Benghazi Embassy. That is where the CIA Security Agents came from.

    Where were the questions about that covert operation?

    They were told to stand down because the government could not have forces in Benghazi Fighting while the guns were being smuggled out of Libya and loaded on the ship to Syria.

    Where were the questions about that covert operation?

    The CIA had a drone flying in the air monitoring the arms shipment out of Libya. The drone was flown over Benghazi so Obama, Hillary, and Joe Biden could see for themselves what was going on at the Benghazi Embassy.

    Where were the questions about that covert operation?

    Hillary said early in the questioning that she didn't know anything about the attack on Benghazi until someone told her at 4:00 a.m.. She said she was in her Office at he white house at that time.

    Where were the questions about what was she doing at the white house at 4:00a.m.?

    Later in her answers she said they knew about it as early as 7:00p.m..

    Where were the questions about that LIE? Why didn't the Republicans ask her about the mix-up in her story?

    Why didn't the Democrats think of any questions to ask her or get some kind of an explanation about why she was lying so many times.

    Why didn't the Democrats ask Hillary how she could receive 55,000 (that is 55 THOUSAND) emails yet she never read one of the 60 that the Ambassador sent to Hillary Clinton? Yet Hillary said she knew she didn't have any classified emails on her server. All emails from other countries with classified emails.

    Where were the questions about that cover-up?

    And the Democrats think Hillary is an innocent, Harmless nice lady who just wants to be our next President.

    Hillary isn't fit to be a government employee, let alone a Government Official or the President of these united States.

    As I watch the Committee Investigation, it reminded me of a Reality Show! Did these congressmen even know what the investigation was all about? Hillary was able to turn to the page that had all the answers on it when she was questioned by the congress (if you want to call them Questions).

    I thought the investigation was a laugh and very boring. Right when they were starting to get on something interesting, they had to yield and the next person didn't know what to ask to continue with the subject.

    The republications should have had a closed door rehearsal, like the democrats did, before they went into that big room.

    If the Democrats wanted to find out the TRUTH about the Benghazi Embassy attack, like they claimed they wanted to find out, WHY Didn't the Democrats ask any questions???????????????

    Just for the record neither the existing Democrats nor the Republicans should be congressmen another term!

    Collectivism knows no bounds. Anything is justifiable as long as it serves, or is perceived to serve, the collective. Morality is out and relativism is in. Change you can believe in.

    Sui,

    For all your Constitutional posts I haven't seen any about the original, and duly ratified 13 Amendment, which banned lawyers from serving in congress. The original 13th Amendment was ratified by Virginia on Mar 12 1819 which made it a duly ratified Constitutional amendment.

    Here is a link about the original 13th amendment from a leftist source for all our liberal friends. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2007/07/10/356123/-The-Missing-13th-Amendment-an-o...

  • I wonder when we can expect Republicans to start their investigation into the 13 Embassy attacks that left 60 dead under George W. Bush?

    Bush didn't lie to the citizens about what happened because he was less than 2 months from an election.

  • Sui you need to ask your republican friends why they didn't ask questions about what happened in Benghazi.They already know what happened,this was just a front for the people back home.The idea was only to damage Hillary and it backfired.You can bet that they did have a rehearsal with Gowdy as lead actor.You are right RV,this is not the first or only Embassy attack to happen where americans died.Why did we not see hearing for those?Why is Gowdy afraid to let the whole report be seen with Blumenthal by the American people?That was the focus of his questions.The republicans gave Hillary another gift yesterday,a boost in the polls.Gowdy even admitted that there was nothing new.If Obama had been president during 9/11 and lied about weapons in Iraq he would have been thrown out of office and jailed.Sui how many hearings were there for 9/11 after thousands of americans were killed on US soil and thousands of US soldiers killed in Iraq?Bush had even been warned about Bin Laden's threat to attack America. Bush never had to go through the drilling Hillary has gone through.I guess those lives were not as important.
