Trump will tell you he never has had recourse to Chapter 13?


I'm not sure what that is.

You do know there are a wide variety of "intelligences", correct?

There is 'business' intelligence, 'emotional' intelligence, 'tactical' intelligence, 'musical' intelligence......and so on and so forth.

His business ability has nothing to do with his ability to be a world-leader and commander in cheif. PERIOD.

He's an interesting candidate and the job will go to whichever is best SUITED for the job. And that is Hillary, hands down. Do I like everything about her? No. But I don't think she's dangerous, and I was an Obama voter twice. Bernie pushed her far enough left that she has agreed to 'try those on'. Warren also pushed her.

Trump, by comparison did nothing but bully his way to the nominations by getting people all in a froth with a few hateful catch-phrases.
Do you know anything about SEO and Keywords? Yeah. He's pandering to the lowest common denominator, and there are a lot of them. They exist. He has no concept of their actual lives....he just knows what they want to hear. This is a game to him.

This is a "prove it" (either beneath his orange hat or between his ears) thing for him. He has to prove it to himself. He has done so. Do not think that the man has any genuine insight that is not contaminated with his background, personality traits, and lived experience. He has no flipping CLUE what you all are really wanting. He just knows what words to say.

He's like your ringmaster....

"And now, I direct everyone's attention to the feckless mob, in the first ring!"

ANyway - yes, I feel ya there. I gave him a look. Then I watched the show some more....another couple of looks --- show and related info....

and just, no.
SOMETHING had to finally drive the nail in....it's grammar. I am pedantic, and when someone hits that nerve, I'm at a crossroads. He just got to that nerve. I'm going left.



I know it is rather pedantic of me to point it out but you are only partially pedantic, The pain in the buttocks part.
One would have to actually use proper grammar to be truly pedantic.

You can't make this stuff up.



“The media is very unfair. They’re very biased,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity, parroting a claim he has made throughout his campaign. Trump also unveiled a new nickname for the established outlet: "The Failing New York Times."

“You look at The New York Times, I mean, the fail — I call it ‘The Failing New York Times’ because it won’t be in business for another, probably more than a few years unless somebody goes in and buys it and wants to lose a lot of money,” Trump said. “But The New York Times is so unfair. I mean they write three, four articles about me a day. No matter how good I do on something, they’ll never write good.”

“They don’t write good. They have people over there, like Maggie Haberman and others, they don’t — they don’t write good,” he said. "They don’t know how to write good.”


How can you honestly support this moron?


"They don't write good"??????????? What is he, an imbecile?

Good question.


I was asking you to clarify your question because it made no sense.

Lol. I was being subtle. I guess it flew over your head. I guess you don't do subtle good huh?

The internet is great because it seems the party of the poor believes just because you cant see them that we forget they are the party of the poor weak gay and feckless and they give out life advice. Seriously, imagine walking into McDonalds (where employees are democrats) and the fry lady starts giving you geopolitical lectures. ATS is the McDonalds of the internet.

No, you were right, it was too subtle, and I didn't pick up on it. That doesn't make it a good joke.

Yes I get it now.

ATS wasn't always like " The McDonald's" of the internet.

And as far as being the thing stated in the first sentence, I think FaceBook has it beat for first place.

No, he's not even remotely eloquent. He's inarticulate to the point of incoherence and I really am starting to wonder if he's having some kind of breakdown. He's having almost a crisis a day now.

Are you sure about that? The man is 70 and does a rally almost every day, press conferences and interviews, yet all you guys can do is find a sentence or two and discuss it ad nauseum. it sounds like the press and its sycophants are having a crisis, can't keep up, while Trump is going strong with no signs of slowing down.

hmmmm........

thinking about it.....

NO. No. He used it three times. He didn't clarify that he meant they won't write the word "good."

He meant that they don't write WELL.
But I give you a star for playing!!! Which do you honestly think it was? Honestly? Not just trying to somehow explain it as anything other than a gaffe.


I don't know, I guess it was a poor choice of words either way. But who cares, honestly? The overall quality of topics is going way down around here, all because it's political season.

"BREAKING: Hillary has coughing fit"

"BREAKING: Trump uses bad grammar"

Pfft....

Perhaps, but ultimately there is only the UNIVERSAL GENIUS.

Where is the average politician on the scale of UNIVERSAL GENIUS? How well do they express the ARETE residing in all of us?

Maybe that's what the American sheeple should ask themselves.

A sentence or two???

From ABC's 'Ths Week':




STEPHANOPOULOS: Vice President Biden told me this week that Vladimir Putin wants to beat Hillary and Madeleine Albright said that your victory would be a gift to Putin.

And what they're pointing to is things like your statements about conditioning our commitments to NATO allies, softening the GOP platform on Ukraine, even considering softening sanctions and recognizing Russian annexation of Crimea. They fear that that's going to hurt America and advance Russia's interests.

TRUMP: They only fear one thing, losing the election. If our country got along with Russia, that would be a great thing. When Putin goes out and tells everybody -- and you talk about a relationship, but he says Donald Trump is going to win and Donald Trump is a genius, and then I have people saying you should disavow. I said, I'm going to disavow that?

But when Putin says good things and when we have a possibility of having a good relationship with Russia...

STEPHANOPOULOS: But if we have a good relationship...

TRUMP: -- I think...

(CROSSTALK)

STEPHANOPOULOS: -- his annexation of Crimea.

TRUMP: I'm not going to be mean to anybody. George, you know me pretty well. I don't bow, OK. I don't bow.

But if we can have a good relationship with Russia and if Russia would help us get rid of ISIS, frankly, as far as I'm concerned, you're talking about tremendous amounts of money and lives and everything else, that would be a positive thing, not a negative thing.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Even if that means conditioning our commitments to NATO, as you said?

TRUMP: No, because you're not going to do that. NATO is going to be just fine. But NATO countries -- we have 28 countries -- many of them are taking advantage of us because they're not paying. So we're protecting these countries and they're not paying.

And when people leave that last part in, everybody agrees with me.

I'm all in favor of NATO. I said NATO is obsolete. I was asked a question by one of your competitors and I said NATO is obsolete, because it's not taking care of terror. You understand that. And it turned out I was right. A lot of people gave me credit for that.

Then, three months ago, on the front page of "The Wall Street Journal," they said NATO to develop a terror division. And somebody who's supposed to be very extraordinary was put in charge of it.

That was all because of me. So I was right about that.

I was also right about the fact that NATO, we're being taken advantage of by NATO countries, totally advantage of (INAUDIBLE)...

STEPHANOPOULOS: Then why did you soften the GOP platform on Ukraine?

TRUMP: I wasn't involved in that. Honestly, I was not involved.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Your people were.

TRUMP: Yes. I was not involved in that. I'd like to -- I'd have to take a look at it. But I was not involved in that.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Do you know what they did?

TRUMP: They softened it, I heard, but I was not involved.

STEPHANOPOULOS: They took away the part of the platform calling for the provision of lethal weapons to Ukraine to defend themselves.

Why is that a good idea?

TRUMP: Well, look, you know, I have my own ideas. He's not going into Ukraine, OK?

Just so you understand. He's not going to go into Ukraine, all right?

You can mark it down and you can put it down, you can take it anywhere you want.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Well, he's already there, isn't he?

TRUMP: OK, well, he's there in a certain way, but I'm not there yet. You have Obama there. And frankly, that whole part of the world is a mess under Obama, with all the strength that you're talking about and all of the power of NATO and all of this, in the meantime, he's going where -- he takes -- takes Crimea, he's sort of -- I mean...

STEPHANOPOULOS: But you said you might recognize that.

TRUMP: I'm going to take a look at it. But, you know, the people of Crimea, from what I've heard, would rather be with Russia than where they were. And you have to look at that, also.

Now, that was under -- just so you understand, that was done under Obama's administration. And as far as the Ukraine is concerned, it's a mess. And that's under the Obama's administration, with his strong ties to NATO.

So with all of these strong ties to NATO, Ukraine is a mess. Crimea has been taken. Don't blame Donald Trump for that.

STEPHANOPOULOS: You said that...

TRUMP: And we'll do better and yet we'll have a better relationship with Russia.

And having a good relationship -- maybe. and having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing.


The above is pure unadultered gibberish.

In any case, How could you vote for Hillary knowing everything she has done? Honestly asking. I feel like a lot of people spouting anti trump stuff did not actually do any research on Hillary and have no idea what she actually did/does.


Are you suggesting that someone should vote for Trump because Hillary is despicable? Why isn't it a valid option to vote for neither? Trumps interview there made a pretty good commercial for Gary Johnson.

So bad grammar is akin to corruption and backroom deals?

Please try again.


That's not what Trump was talking about. He was attacking the fact that the NYT doesn't write good articles about him, they're all negative. Trump believes the media should spin everything about him as a positive.
