Topic Wiki

Thread summary:

Trump walks in a room.

1. Moshe123 shoots at him because he is pure evil, 2. ilherman+hachover jump in front of the bullets because Trump is our savior. 3. aygart tackles Moshe123 because Trump is better than HRC, 4. but Baruch can't stand Trump so he tells aygart he's crazy and Trump is a madman. 5. ExGingi would like to point out that who cares what he is, all that matters is the supreme court nominations. 6. Dan and others aren't really sure how this makes them feel plus they don't really want to drink poison. 7. Spoiler alert: Moshe123's gun was empty, it was just a blank.

And Freddie is in the back of the room just cooking his cholent. Until he announces that there are TWO menu choices, Pareve Cholent or Vegetable Lasagna. While etech0 figured out that they are both poisoned.


Repeat x100.

And then Hilary walks into the room with the most confidence a candidate has had in recent history. She is so confident that she eats both the Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna. Everyone is the room is aghast, they don't know how this happened, could it be Comey is behind this poisoning or was it that her Obamacare premiums were to high to get her the help she needed.

Everyone stared as she choked and was cast into oblivion on November, 8, 2016 the last day she was heard from in the public eye.

Moshe123, ilherman, hachover, Baruch, ExGingi, Dan, Freddie, etech0, and the rest of America are in total shock and hope that so long as Trump doesn't eat any Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna and stays true to his supreme court nominees this may be the greatest thing to happen since the CSR and GC's.

But remember this may be the beginning of the end...

P.S. Thanks to cognitive dissonance aygart, Michael Moore, and Scott Adams knew the whole time that Trump could win, unfortunately for JTZ he may be off DDF for the next 4 years due to his mandatory 3 times daily consumption of CROW!

As things turns out, the most prescient view on this election was that of Michael Moore! Though Scott Adams is also claiming a high view level of prescience.

To whom has he not been loyal?

Don't tell me campaign manager. Official position is that it was mutual so any other theory is speculation.
Firstly, he's on his third campaign manager.
Secondly, loyalty is a wonderful trait. But ability to admit mistakes - yours, and those of your associates - and cut your losses and/or make a stand for what's right, is arguably more important.

Lastly, when loyalty is all you got...

I am no HRC fan but lets keep this real.

The shady dealing I don't care about. The way Comey put it as being "extremely careless" with the information is what I have a problem with.

I see the second as more significant. I don't think she intended to send classified information over the server, though it's clear she did and that was wrong. I think she wanted to hide her conversations from the world. And that frightens me.

She has a right to her personal conversations. They are none of anybody's business.

When half of her meetings were with donors and there was definitely collusion between CF and DoS that becomes a concern. Do you really think that all those Muslim sheiks are so interested in fighting AIDS? Why do you think they gave millions to  a "charity" where only less than 10% geos to anything chritable?

If they were in the context of her professional responsibilities, even if they are not confidential, that isn't true.

Had they been personal conversations there would have been no issue. Everyone has separate work and personal email.

Like I said get real. Where does it say she sold to the highest bidder?
I forgot, even the most obvious exaggerations are only allowed if they are anti Trump.

Quote
Word-thinking is a popular alternative to reason. A word-thinker ignores facts and logic, and tries to jam all observations into existing labels. For a word-thinker, everyone in the world is either a racist or a good person. The reality is that human brains operate on pattern recognition, which pretty much guarantees that all of us are sexists and racists to some degree. But word-thinkers only see two categories.
This same type of word-thinking was seen in the GOP primaries. Much of the discussion was about whether or not Trump was a conservative. People believed, quite irrationally, that if Trump didn’t fit into that label with precision, he was not worthy to be president. Word-thinkers are not confined to one side of the political world. It is a universal mental phenomenon.
Word-thinking is important to persuasion because if you can convince someone to accept a label on an opponent, it turns off their critical thought and turns on their confirmation bias. Nuance is lost. Context is lost. All that matters once the label is accepted is whatever qualities the label already contained.

The U.S. Department of ClintonKimberley Strassel, Wall Street Journal
Quote
In March this column argued that while Mrs. Clinton’s mishandling of classified information was important, it missed the bigger point. The Democratic nominee obviously didn’t set up her server with the express purpose of exposing national secrets—that was incidental. She set up the server to keep secret the details of the Clintons’ private life—a life built around an elaborate and sweeping money-raising and self-promoting entity known as the Clinton Foundation.
Had Secretary Clinton kept the foundation at arm’s length while in office—as obvious ethical standards would have dictated—there would never have been any need for a private server, or even private email. The vast majority of her electronic communications would have related to her job at the State Department, with maybe that occasional yoga schedule. And those Freedom of Information Act officers would have had little difficulty—when later going through a state.gov email—screening out the clearly “personal” before making her records public. This is how it works for everybody else.
Mrs. Clinton’s problem—as we now know from this week’s release of emails from Huma Abedin’s private Clinton-server account—was that there was no divide between public and private. Mrs. Clinton’s State Department and her family foundation were one seamless entity—employing the same people, comparing schedules, mixing foundation donors with State supplicants. This is why she maintained a secret server, and why she deleted 15,000 emails that should have been turned over to the government.

I am not the one who fell for it you are. I never had a hava amina that he would round them all up. Think about the difference between you and what you are hallucinating me to be. Your statements about Trump fit the worst pictures in your hallucinations only the other direction. I never said that Trump is a conservative. I never said he is an honest likeable person. I never even said that I thought he would be a good president. During the primaries I wrote this:

What I am seeing is that you are constantly painting every little thing he does in the absolute worst possible way even when it is clear that it is not what he meant or that it is very typical political posturing. This is to the extent that you could be a surrogate for Bill Krystol. That may be why you are getting so frustrated. You cannot deal with anyone even saying that Trump is not as bad as the antis are making him to be. I am sure that there are times that I went too far in my defense of Trump or attacks on Hillary. Anyone who is honest with themselves will realize that they can do that. You seem to be unable. As such you are imagining me to have certain opinions and are then arguing with your hallucinations and blaming it on me.
You, my dear friend, are taking this entire thing way too seriously.

As I've pointed out before, this is only decision time for a select few who vote in OH, FL, and a couple of other states. For anyone registered to vote in NY, NJ, or CA, this is nothing but entertainment (and a waste of time if you plan to actually vote on election day).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
