    It should be interesting and entertaining at least at times. Thankfully they have found a safe space to do this in. At least it is now after they built their wall. May be a little slow in the speaking department tho. I wonder if their DNC chair (for a few more days) has a more pressing speaking engagement elsewhere? Maybe some other national socialist party event?

    Steve, to me it is about the same if slick hilly is truly that clueless (which I doubt) or obfuscating to keep us in the dark (which I suspect). Either way she isn't fit to defend anyone in traffic court, much less run the country.

    Well, gotta get the popcorn ready!

  • Just that last post Carl. When it gets childish or downright nasty, I pull out and let the chips fall where they may, instead of trying to referee.

  • I think conventions are meaningless, they're a pep rally. Let's get past them and on to the campaign and the debates and the election. Most people's minds are already made up anyway.

    In most any other year I would be for the Republican because I don't like Hillary, but when the Republican choice is Trump, then Hillary gets my vote easily. In 3.5 months we'll know where we stand, let the silliness begin.

  • It seems both parties have some things in common:

    1.) Both parties were biased towards the winning nominee. The GOP was opposed to Trump and the Dems were in favor of Hillary.

    2.) They both cheered "lock her up".

  • Live, I'm confused. You can't say that both parties were biased towards their nominee and then say that GOP was opposed to Trump and Dems were for Clinton.

    The phrase "biased towards" suggests that you mean that both parties are FOR their nominee. Unless you meant that they were negatively biased towards their nominee. In which case you are saying both parties were against their nominee, but you said the Dems were in favor of Clinton.

    Can you clarify your statement for me?

    Thanks!

    Bias can be for or against.

    -- Posted by fair share on Mon, Jul 25, 2016, at 7:47 PM
  • Sure ClarkDV glad to clarify for you.

    bi·as.[ˈb"əs]

    1.prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair

    synonyms: prejudice · partiality · partisanship · favoritism.

    The GOP was biased against Trump.

    The DEMS was biased for Hillary.

    Both parties chanted "Lock her up".

    The Dems complained when the GOP chanted it. I don't think either side complained when the Dems did.

  • If the Russians were able to get these emails from the DNC, is it really a stretch to assume they got the emails from Hillary's basement server?

    What is her blackmail risk?

    -- Posted by quietmike on Tue, Jul 26, 2016, at 6:30 AM
  • Quite Mike; they also got into the joint chiefs of staff servers, and probably every other part of the government. If it is any consolation, I am sure we are not sitting on our hands to respect the privacy of the Russians. It is not like espionage is something new.

    Here in the age of the internet, the only people in the dark are the citizens.

  • Espionage is nothing new.One thing is for sure,we are in for a roller coaster ride.

    Agree.

    Watch out for the dumping of the fertilizer.

    Maybe not on our hands, maybe just thumbs. I really don't see how the ruskies could fear slick hilly more than Trump. Didn't she already reset the button?

    QM, maybe I am reading this wrong, but I wonder if black male risk is politically incorrect? Anyway, I am sure slick hilly would take any risk needed to have 4 more years to drive this country into the ground.

  • Yes, bias can go either way, thanks for clarifying your statement about which way you meant.

  • I was surprised to learn that Hillary will not be the first woman to run for the office of President. If she wins, she will have a first but for now ......

    Yeah, but they sure are making a big deal about it. I wonder where you can get a bumper sticker that says: Cain and unAbel ?

  • I don't remember anyone saying she was the first woman to run. Just the first to be nominated by a "major party." personally, I think that is less of a milestone than having the first black president (that one really surprised me). The woman as a world leader ceiling has been broken many times (Margaret Thatcher, Indira Ghandi, Golda Meir, Edith Cresson, Angela Merkel, Catherine the Great, and many others). If anything, the US stands out for not having had a woman as the head of government before.

    I think some woman ran in the late 1800s...something about voting rights as best I recall. Speaking of the convention, sounds like they had a breach of their 8 foot fence last night. Guess it didn't keep people out like they were trying to. Maybe they should have gotten Trump to build it.

    -- Posted by fair share on Thu, Jul 28, 2016, at 4:06 PM
  • Will Trump build it with the thousands of foreign workers he imports through the US Visa system to work in his companies for low wages instead of hiring Americans.After all his motto is " I will bring jobs back to America".America is not even good enough to make his suits and ties. The DNC convention represents all Americans ,not just the country club bunch that showed up in Cleveland.The DNC crowd was much bigger and more enthusiastic. The RNC did not even give Trump a bounce in the polls which usually happens after conventions. No one in Trumps campaign or his family can control his dangerous rhetoric.Keep talking Mr Trump. America and the world is getting to know the real Trump and it is not good.God is revealing a little more of this each day.

    America has known slick hilly for a long time and it has never been good.

    Hillary isn't out of the water over all those emails yet and now she has added 20,000 more DNC emails to her lists of accomplishments.

    Debbie Wasserman was caught rigging the election in favor of Hillary and was booed so loudly that she had to resign.

    Now Hillary has hired Debbie Wasserman to be on her campaign. Don't you democrats see what Hillary is doing? She does everything in a questionable way. Most people would distance themselves from someone who is forced to resign for breaking the law (Rigging an Election), but not Hillary. She welcomes scammers and law breakers on her side. That is the way Hillary operates.

    She will be the same way as our president.

    "The DNC convention represents all Americans ,not just the country club bunch that showed up in Cleveland."

    No, lbr?, the DNC convention does not represent all Americans. It certainly does not represent me. And I am certainly not part of the country club crowd. And how sad slick hilly had to cheat with the help of wasserman/schultz to get to final round. Anyone remember Germany in the 1930s? Priceless that you guys are comparing Trump instead of slick hilly to Hitler!

    -- Posted by fair share on Mon, Aug 1, 2016, at 4:32 PM
  • I don't understand the comparisons to Hitler.If I recall,the Nazis were responsible for a huge portion of the over 60 million people killed in WW2.That kind of remark is in poor taste.
