With all the talk about health records, should we be looking closer at the Vice Presidential candidates?

    Most people don't put too much emphasis on the VP pick because it usually isn't too likely they will have to do anything but warm the bench. But this time, what with Illery's penchant for passing out, some might want to take a closer look at Cain. But I would be extremely surprised if anyone that could make themselves vote for slick hilly in the first place would be able to find anything bad enough about Cain to make them change their vote. Even tho it is unlikely Illery would be able to make it through four whole years. I wouldn't be surprised if she didn't even make it to the inauguration. At least if she had to stand up for it.

  • To me the whole presidential election, or more specifically, the office of president, has become a huge danger to our representative republic.

    The executive branch has gained waaaayyyy to much power! As it is, the president has the authority to select which laws to enforce, which ones to ignore, make agreements with foreign countries and even dictates law/policy. Confined to the proper role of only executing all duly passed laws, and supporting the constitution, the person occupying the oval office would have far less significance.

    The media is supposed to be the watchdogs, reporting unbiased news concerning what our representatives are doing. Instead, the media has become the lapdogs for the liberal/socialist agenda.

    I think Trump/GOP will be scrutinized more by the media than the Democrats. Which is a good thing. We don't want a corrupt lying president who is given a free pass by the media.

    I don't know much about the VP candidates either. I was hoping for a viable 3rd party. But it is not to be.

    I have to agree with fair share, what I already know about Hillary and Trump is enough to make me not want to support either one, regardless of who the VP is.

  • I have more concerns with Trumps mental health, than Hillary's physical health.

    Did you see him barking like a dog or something?

    I use the phone probably more than the computer. I don' really recall any problem getting started or using it since then. Sometimes I have trouble getting it to work using the computer tho. Technology is wonderful......When it works!

  • Trump barks like a dog all the time ,which time are you referring to fair. He is hiding his medical records as well as his taxes.

    Lbr?, you need to pay attention to current events. Trump doesn't bark "like a dog all the time" or even once. It was sick hilly that did, back when she had the stamina to stand up long enough for a rally.

    -- Posted by fair share on Wed, Sep 14, 2016, at 11:09 PM
  • Fair share I have a question for you. Which candidate complained about the length of the first debate and had to lean on the podium most of the night? Now he is actually trashing a minister after she banned him from spewing his rhetoric in a house of God. He can not handle strong women.He left Flint with his tail between his legs.

    Trump yells and screams at his rallies like a mad man ,except when he is medicated and placed in front of a teleprompter or reading off paper.

    So you say Trump is on an antipsychotic. Which one? Did you happen to see sick hilly hanging onto the post for dear life until her handlers were able to drag her to the suv? That was on 9/11. When I first saw it I thought they were showing a rerun of "Weekend at Bernie's". Trump works 18-20 hour days every day for a long time. Poor sick hilly has worked maybe half the days over the past month. And that was even before she started claiming to have pneumonia. Of course, if she happens to win that would be beneficial for we the people if she could only work half time. By the way, do you ever wonder if God laughs every day when sick hilly takes her rat poison?

    Health isn't an issue! It isn't required in the constitution that I am aware of and just like anything else in their life, records can be bought.

    What we would like is an honest politician! Where would we find one of those people?

    Obama has been transparent! One of the most Transparent presidents ever appointed (twice).

    We have been able to see all the crimes he has committed as the president. We have been able to watch him spend money left and right on terrorists, Auto Industry, Solyndra, the solar-panel maker that received a $535 million loan guarantee then went belly up, Obamacare that is just a Government insurance company that is going broke faster than it can get policy holders, arming Muslim Brotherhood countries that Hillary Clinton created, but not on Our Military.

    Hillary will be just as transparent as Obama, because Hillary can't keep a secret. She can only lie about keeping secrets.

    Take your brain and put it back in your head for a minute and think about this.

    Obama has turned everyone against each other. He has divided the people right down the middle and given your wealth away to 3rd world countries.


    This is a political race between two entirely different people, yet IT IS A VERY CLOSE RACE, just like the Obama and Mitt race. It was so close that no one could call for a recount.

    This race is exactly the same thing. 50% against Trump and 50% against Hillary. Which one will win or lose?

    It is so close, you could call the race with the flip of a coin and pick the best loser. It will be up to the Powers-To-Be to instruct the Electoral on who to vote for.

    Even if the Electoral votes are honest, they have made all the polls to look like either one could win, so a couple miscounted votes here and there...?

    Don't forget the "SWING STATES"! They claim the Swing States determine who wins the election. You mean the people's vote in all the other states doesn't really count?

    To me it doesn't matter, one way or the other! I would like to see Trump win and prove the idiots wrong. Trump will not only make America great again, but would change the World in the process.

    But then again, I would like to see Hillary win, just to be able to watch all the idiots receive their punishment and disappointments for voting for her, before I leave this world.

    If Trump wins, the people win.

    If Hillary wins, the Government wins and only a Sovereign can survive unharmed.

    Hillary took a red reset button to Russia with her when she was the Secretary of State and made an _ _ _ out of her elf and the American people by calling it a reset button. What did she reset? I never figured that out.

    Trump likes Putin and said he felt like they could get along good and work together.

    According to Hillary Clinton, Vladimir Putin is the "grand-godfather of this global brand of extreme nationalism." That sounds like "HATE SPEECH" to me, and Hillary condemns Hate Talk as "Racist". Doesn't that now make Hillary a "Racist", just like the one she calls a Racist?

    It is also said that Russia has 20,000 of Hillary's emails that he is thinking about exposing. That is why Hillary hates Putin and she worked with Putin on the "Reset Button" for all the good that done. Hillary has just undone all the good there was in dealing with Russia. Who do you think will be able to deal with Putin now?

    Saturday, US-led coalition airstrikes reportedly killed dozens of Syrian troops, during the cease-fire. The US military said it was targeting ISIS militants and if it hit Syrian troops, it was an accident.

    Russia and Syria said the strikes prove Washington and its allies are sympathetic to ISIS.

    Obomba has been aiding the Rebels and Putin has been bombing the Rebels. Now China is backing Syria as well and Obomba still isn't smart enough to get out of Syria! Obomba has killed enough people in Syria and made thousands of Syrians refugees.

    These are areas that were bombed because there were Isis fighters in them. The Syrians have and still are leaving these areas that Obomba has helped or caused to be bombed. If these Syrians are leaving, so are the Isis Fighters, and Obomba is inviting them here.

    Hillary will welcome them with open arms, but Trump will stop them from coming inside our states, with our arms, until they are vetted.

    The US-led coalition and Saudi-led coalition is bombing "Doctors without Borders" Hospitals all over the East.

    If America is so sensitive to human lives, why are they bombing Hospitals in these foreign countries, that we built for them, yet don't want to bomb men, women and children and babies in the Isis camps?

    It's okay to bomb injured people who are just being treated from their injuries, killing them, Doctors, Nurses and other helpers, but send drones to take out one Isis leader.

    Hillary will keep Obomba's legacy alive, but will destroy anything she has done to make women proud of her.

    Watching Hillary get helped in that van when she was about to pass out, reminded me so much of that black man who was actually dragged over to the police van (apparently he was unable to walk over to the van) and actually lifted up into the van, just to be pronounced dead on arrival from being tossed around in the van.

    Was Hillary strapped in her seat as the van sped away to evade the news reporters who were suppose to stay with her...?

    Of course, Hillary's hands weren't handcuffed behind her back, so she could have caught herself if she wasn't passed out, that is.

    Oh well, the time is coming when she will have her hands cuffed behind her back. Putin might see to that after that remark Hillary made about him.

    You know, poor sick killary needed more help getting into the vehicle because she had a cough and it was 77 degrees than President Reagan did when he was shot in the chest and had a collapsed lung and a bullet an inch from his heart. Just saying. I wonder if spotted owl bore is glad she couldn't handle the heat? He probably thinks "it's about time we have a victim of global warming".

  • If there is one thing this election has uncovered, it is a massive conspiracy by the AMA. I have to wonder why we spend so much money on visiting the offices of physicians and having all those examinations and tests. Look at how thoroughly we can diagnose illnesses merely by watching video clips. Home Psychiatrists have successfully diagnosed Trump with narcissistic personality disorder, sociopathy, and alzheimers. But they have nothing on the legion of self-trained physicians attending to the many ailments of Clinton. The poor woman "obviously" is suffering from: aphasia, autism, brain cancer, heart disease, multiple schlerosis, diabetes, hypertension, parkinsons disease, post concussion syndrome, radiation poisoning, seizures, stroke, tongue cancer, and a urinary tract infection....You are right, Steve. We need to get more video clips of the vice presidential candidates out there, so a thorough medical examination can be performed.

  • Boy, I sure wish medical diagnosis was that easy. I know your comment was meant in a slightly different way but I have trouble understanding the medical/insurance/legal environment. Maybe another post. :-)

    Well lazyrus, you may be right. Maybe sick hilly isn't sick at all. Maybe when she gets those goofy looks on her face and can't say anything for several seconds that could just be her being her. Comforting thought. I would prefer it to be some illness that could be cured or controlled, at least if she ends up winning.

  • Fair share it's called thinking before you speak,something your guy Trump does not know anything about.Some like him because he blurts out things without thinking and reverses them the next day or same day, saying that was not what he meant.First impressions are usually right.

    How is he going to spin" using other people's money" as he calls it to buy personal items and pay off legal fees? This is some of the things he accused the Clinton Foundation of with no proof.

    There is iron clad proof of what he is doing.

    -- Posted by lets be real on Thu, Sep 22, 2016, at 4:55 PM
  • This is money from the Trump Foundation that others have donated. There is no evidence of him donating anything since 2008 to anything.If he reveal his taxes this would be settled. The IRS has stated there is no reason being audited keeps anyone from doing this.
