You posted a photo of the receipt for your contribution to Donald Trump's campaign.... facilitated by slave labor in China?
This election cycle sure is a mess.

Sure, the late 40's and 50's were "great"...

If you were a white male.

I wonder if Trump would admit that we could not have won that war if it weren't for the cooperation with Communist Russia.

The D-Day invasion would have ended differently if the Eastern Front wasn't a focus for Germany.


It would of ended diffrently if the UK and Canada did not take there 3 beaches swiftly and the USA was left on its own to flounder in the near catastrophic mess that was omaha.

I wonder if Soviet Russia would admit that if it wasn't for the lend lease program and the continued war on the western front that they probably would have been overrun by Hitler and company? See how this works?


Not really.

That again just shows me it was a ALLIED win not a US only win.

The majority of women were much happier back then being fulltime mothers before feminists denigrated women for being fulltime mothers.


satire or a genuine mysogynist? it can only be one of the two.

Maybe a Marshall plan for the Middle East would be a good idea? Can't see Americans going for that


The Petro rich Nations there could do it themselves, but they seem intent on spending their money to kill other Muslims. Kinda odd, don't ya think? It's not a lack of money, it's a lack of will from S. A. and the Gulf States. Just think if how many TRILLIONS of dollars have been squandered over there...... for what?

I don't know, but the guy sounds like the kids in middle school who thought they had a handle on what life and the world were about because they had rich parents and they were just spoiled little, know little to nothing, dumbass rich kids.

Most of them were bullies.

This country was built on people doing what they had to do to get the job done by themselves, by figuring out a way of working past and around adversity and problems placed in the path of the goals they pursued.

Now people just go get a loan from a bank to pay somebody else to do it for them.

And whine about the interest rates.......

Trump does not speak from experience, and he doesn't know anything because he has always had the resources to pay somebody else to get the job done for him.

This guy is a danger to the entire planet.

Frickin dumb too, when I listen to the nonsense spewing forth from his pie-hole, it is a veritable wince fest that I need a nap from afterward.

How did we get here?, to where a reality TV "star"? is running for the highest office in the land?.

It has to be a joke.

I don't think he is anything more than a spoiler, a distraction.

If all of the votes that go to him are for naught, for whatever reason, who would they go to, in effect, or who would they take votes from?.

"When America Was Great" is a time frame that's in the mind of the person speaking/writing. My 17 year old who just got accepted into the college he wanted, thinks America is GREAT right now.

Trump has stated what he feels. Naturally he's not going to replace all TV shows with Three Stooges re-runs and have everyone sewing the holes in their socks again.

IMO, Trumps comments will not cost him any votes, but will bring more Democrats and Independents to him. Hillary has no "vision" for America beyond free Associate degrees, and illegals getting free health insurance.

please do tell why he's wrong


Because any self-professed "leader" who claims there was a "golden age" for his nation needs to be rejected outright as a liar or an ignorant fool - more appropriately both.

The idea that anyone would think he's right is even more insane.

Trump is actually right here in some regard

America was economically growing immensely after WWII because we protected trade and jobs and taxed the rich appropriately and created massive infrastructure with those taxes that created jobs and grew the economy.


The problem is he doesn’t say the first step in our downfall:
That is when Ronald Reagan cut taxes for the rich in 1981


He does admit that Reagan messed up by starting the trade deals but he won't admit that the huge tax cuts for the rich were also destructive to the macro economy as were the trade deals

Are you REALLY this idiotic?

Apart from this being the Sun, a known tabloid trash rag, it's already been made clear that this was actually taken entirely out of context. When this film was made Hitler was a clown to be mocked around the world and that salute was nothing more than a hand gesture.

I take it you do realize that 1933 was BEFORE WW2, BEFORE the holocaust, when Hitler was nothing more than the ranting Chancellor of Germany?

Please, go back and get the education you clearly never had, or perhaps demand a refund for the utter failure of any supposed education you claim to have been given.

It's not difficult to look like a successful growing nation when you've just spent billions of $'s and lost thousands of lives in war.

I wonder how prosperous the US would have been in this period if they weren't comparing it to a time of war?

Two points.
1.) you're right about Reagan. The fact is that the idea that became NAFTA originated in the Reagan admin.
2 .) nobody running for the GOP nomination dare criticize Reagan. He has attained almost Godlike status.

How many of you self proclaimed intellectuals actually believes when he says "America was great during the 40s and 50s", he means going back to segregation and women who can't vote?? Are you all serious?? You can't be this lame.

This is undeniable, and hilarious, proof of how biased you people are. You're all upset about what you THINK he may have meant, as opposed listening what he actually said. Complete fools.

A bunch of whiners looking to be offended don't have to search far.

SJW's .. every single time.

You Trumpsters really do need to have it all spelled out for you, eh?


Not a Trump supporter, that doesn't mean that he's wrong though when he said the US was far stronger economically in the 50's.


1946 onwards: women in the workforce, quite mystifyingly, don’t want to go back to scraping excrement off diapers. They're also quite keen to be making their own money and not having to ask the Hubster (a kind of Trumpster-at-home) for a few bucks whenever they want to have their hair done. So they stay in work, and guess what, it’s great for economic growth and for women too. In fact, even more of them enter the workforces, so that the proportion of women in the workforce increases every decade from 1940 to 2000.


1967 was our peak, though 1955 got close. In both cases it was well before most women entered the work force.

What Trump wants to return to cannot happen because the labor supply is too high. Unless of course you created a system of basic income and encouraged people to drop out of the work force.
