Oh please. You think the infighting is bad on the GOP side?

Just wait and see what ruckus the Bernie supporters cause at the DNC.


Maybe, but I'm sure they watched the GOP convention and won't want to repeat that obvious cluster****!

There will be some passionate squabbles in the caucus rooms but they will project a unified front for the public.


I don't think it matters for them. They have had an 8 year long cluster f**k in office, so the convention won't be that important.


I totally understand your anger and disappointment that this GOP convention went south. Perhaps you should take your own advice that you gave me. Take some time off and gain some perspective. Your hate is eating you up and will eventually make you physically ill.


Lol, touche.


I know you are a gentleman, a noble individual and I want the same thing for you that I want for myself. Peace, Love and a little slack....


What's a good debate without a little fun heh?
I look forward to your barbs during evening 4!


I've been easy on you guys up till now. Tonite I'll be properly hammered and will be post banned before the evening is thru.



Have at it. I think it's also Tequila-Karaoke night for 'Silly'...so there should be some entertaining criticism from the Lefties.


I think we should have a gentelmans rule that the following words/phrases are restricted to one use only:
bloviate
Hitler
narcissistic
fascist
orange
cheetoh
hair
low information
bully
policy detail
plan
plagurise

...oh and definitely cognitive dissonance

Or we could just play word bingo with them.


Agreed. Now when we're NOT talking about Hillary, what words are banned?

The list was for the liberal rule set... they should have their own list for Hillary. as long as they don't include Lucifer on the banned list then i'll be ok.

Thursday: Make America One Again

America faces serious challenges at home and threats from abroad. In order to turn our challenges into opportunities and keep America secure, we need leadership that will focus on what unites us, not what divides us. Donald Trump will move our country beyond the divisive identity politics that have been holding us back by restoring leadership, building trust, and focusing on our shared love of country and our common goal of making America great again..

Primetime Program, 7:30 P.M.

Brock Mealer, Motivational Speaker
Brock Mealer is a walking miracle. After suffering a spinal cord injury on Christmas Eve of 2007, he was told he had a one percent chance he would ever walk again. Mealer’s story struck the hearts of millions of Americans. He sustained his injury in a car crash just five minutes away from his home. While his brother, an offensive lineman headed to the University of Michigan to play football, was able to free Brock from the wreckage, the two brothers lost their father, David, and Elliot’s girlfriend, Hollis Richer, in the crash. Today, Brock has conquered the odds and is able to walk again. He now shares his story with many, inspiring those he meets to join the one percent.

U.S Representative Marsha Blackburn (TN-7)
Rep. Marsha Blackburn was first elected to Congress from the 7th Congressional District of Tennessee in 2002. As a small business woman, author, mother, grandmother and Member of Congress, she has dedicated her service to making America a more prosperous place to live. No stranger to adversity and hard work, Marsha went to college on a 4-H scholarship and worked her way through school selling books for the Southwestern Company. She was one of their first female sales associates and one of their first female sales managers, assisting the company in establishing a division focused on women.

Governor Mary Fallin, Governor of Oklahoma

Her tenure is also marked by the work she did when serving as the chairman of the National Governors Association, where she led a nationwide initiative to help better align education with the needs of a modern day workforce.

Dr. Lisa Shin, National Diversity Coalition for Trump

Dr. Shin is a vocal supporter of Donald Trump. As a member of the National Diversity Coalition for Trump as well as a Trump delegate to the Republican National Convention, she has worked to support Donald Trump’s candidacy from New Mexico all the way to Cleveland, Ohio.

Reince Priebus, RNC Chairman
Reince Priebus’ three terms make him the longest-serving chairman in modern history. During his first term as chairman, Priebus oversaw a dramatic turnaround of the RNC, rescuing its finances, rebuilding the operations, and implementing the best ground game effort the committee had ever organized. Priebus dedicated his second term to taking the party’s message of freedom and economic opportunity to all states and all communities. By welcoming new voices and voters and harnessing the power of new technology, he led the RNC in building the infrastructure needed for a landslide GOP victory in the midterm elections. Now in his third term, Priebus is working to deliver victories in races across the country in the 2016 campaign.

Jerry Falwell, Jr., President of Liberty University and evangelical leader

Let the fun begin! Unlike my BFF, I usually don't watch conventions, but she told me this year I just had to. She was right!

I got to thinking. I can remember the snide remarks of Republicans directed at Dems for electing a "celebrity", Obama. I think they were jealous, because the RP now has a real celebrity candidate. Trump's life has been built on being "out there" in the eye of the public. Fortune. Fame.

I wonder, if he were POTUS, how long it would take, once the accolades turn to disapproval, how long would it take to hate the job he once sought. Remember the film, Patton, at the end there is one of his quotes

“For over a thousand years Roman conquerors returning from the wars enjoyed the honor of triumph, a tumultuous parade. In the procession came trumpeteers, musicians and strange animals from conquered territories, together with carts laden with treasure and captured armaments. The conquerors rode in a triumphal chariot, the dazed prisoners walking in chains before him. Sometimes his children robed in white stood with him in the chariot or rode the trace horses. A slave stood behind the conqueror holding a golden crown and whispering in his ear a warning: that all glory is fleeting.”

I agree - I think Trump will positively hate the job. Having to deal with the kind of people who wanted to be politicians when they were growing up. The snotty nosed, teachers pet type that grows up to be a disgusting pervert with no friends (or maybe that is just the UK politician?). Seriously though, he'll hate not being able to get things done quickly. I'd doubt he would do two terms.

he probably doesn't realise the military is lining up behind Trump.
I read a comment from John “Tig” Tiegen that the "best and the brightest" of the Special Forces will quit if Hillary is elected.

Can protestents give absolution? Rev. Falwell could forgive Melania for her stint as a porn star and all would be right with the Lord.

The Fundamentalist might find her porn star career a little "sticky".....

I would imagine the Lord was quite happy with Melania posing nude - he's human after all.. oh wait.

Seriously though, Beck started that rumour which he lifted from a gossip section of a tabloid in 2007 but there is no evidence. Part of me wishes there was evidence (though I won't say which part).

I remember democrat doomsayers predicting Armageddon...with Cleveland in flames. Congrats to the Cleveland P.D. for keeping things going so peaceful.


They weren't alone.

Glad everything has been relatively peaceful.

Interesting. I doubt that would happen. Things are just different here. Although, General Alexander Haigh comes closest in recent modern times to having much influence (coup some have said) as a military individual.

The article does mention the famous Truman and MacArthur situation, and recent remarks by Hayden. I found the one about Paul Manafort very interesting. Having worked for a former Ukrainian president, Vladimir Putin, characterized as Vladimir Putin ally.

BELIEVE me I regularly speak to alot of people who would have a pathological prediliction to jump on the idea.
WE JUST know what it would feel like to pull a trigger on American's like that, and we will need a F##K of a good reason for it or the shooter is nuts.
Trump or Hillary by themselves?
NO I don't see that without an attempt at political martial law.
I won't kill to keep bathrooms sexually divided or any petty thing like skin then.
AND I very much doubt the left has EVER fielded a credible national power, to rival mine in capabilities of violence.
HENCE...they still exist,because we were taught to be polite and let the other guy hit first...then decapitation if necessary.
