Trump The Debate Leader

When the debate first started, I couldn’t believe that the moderators would single out any candidate the way they did Mr. Trump. Who, they asked, would pledge not to run as an Independent? The question presupposes, still eighteen months before the election, by people who said Trump and any other republican would automatically be toast for denouncing illegal immigration (wrong), that an Independent run by Trump would split the vote and give Hillary the election, when she hasn’t even won the nomination yet.

It seemed to me that rather than approaching the forum in a fair and balanced way, the moderators intended to cast a dim impression on Mr. Trump from the outset. I should say here that I was listening to the debate via SiriusXM, and did not see The Donald, front stage, raising his hand, the center of attention, the undisputed leader and ring master – who fully understands.

And, even though it seems to me that he ultimate won the initial encounter with the moderators, the approach was inappropriate. Who, after all, can say with certainty that an Independent run – eighteen months from now – wouldn’t win the election? The question really seemed to have a vitriolic underpinning from the beginning. Really, who cares if the man we choose as best to lead the country is running as a Republican, Democrat, or Independent?

The media pundits continue to speak out of both sides of their mouths as they declare on one hand that Donald Trump has struck a chord and is invigorating previously disenfranchised voters, while still claiming he is unfit, unworthy, inappropriate, can’t be taken seriously, doesn’t represent… ad nauseum.

So the debate rambled on. Rand Paul, Hip Hop Crissy, and the right to privacy. Blah, blah, blah. After awhile I began to hear the same ole rhetoric from the same ole, or different, faces. And then I began to analyze on the larger more general scale. In spite of my growing chagrin, this debate was exciting. The crowd roared after every response. Wait. Isn’t that usually taboo? Since I was listening to the radio instead of watching, the roaring crowd finally started to resemble the canned laughter of a 1960’s sitcom. That ain’t right.

There is no doubt about it. The debate was well orchestrated and spit polished from the beginning. I mean, I really want to go and vote today – right now – eighteen months too early. And that reminds me of the fact that Hillary has been running for president for four years already. She’s been mentioned in the media so often that I actually began to think the media was trying to blow her wad so far in advance that she’d become passe by election time. I mean, the email scandal might hurt her, but it could turn out to be a refreshing pallet cleanser before she get’s down to the real campaigning. Even still, are the Republican’s trying to catch up to her premature election?

It’s hard for me to imagine the Republican’s will be able to keep up their steam through the twelve debates currently planned all the way through next spring. And, Hillary’s email problem’s may still be her undoing. Anyway you look at it, I think this is going to be one very, very long campaign season.

    FLAG BURNING VIDEO!

    Absolute power corrupts absolute, and as I recall Ted Turner, wise man that he is, once called Christians “stupid.” He eventually apologized, but for what I don’t know. While Christians are foolishly attempting to take over government with religion, the potential grows for a flag burning amendment that would essentially set the stage for the dissolution of all basic constitutional rights to unravel like a braided sisal rope without a boy scout.

    Where’s Colin Kaepernick?

    Our leaders are in denial of what is obvious at face value. The biggest threat to the future of this country is the incompetence and corruption of law enforcement.

    "President" Trump Has Arrived

    Unfortunately, the shtick and the catharsis, however well-intentioned and sincere they may actually be, won’t be enough to erase and “heal” the deeper and longer term injuries that both sides have endured over the years. And, as noted in the rebuttal, there are already issues to which even a moderate conservative such as myself can and does take umbrage with…

    Newt Gingrinch, Republicans And Gay Marriage

    Newt Gingrinch and the Republicans are now waffling on all the issues the voters have already answered no to. Gay marriage is a major part of the socialist putsch to universtal Obamacare. It’s one more component leading to all out fascism, aristocracy, and neo-nazi socialism. So, I’m rerunning this article from 2003 to review, again, […]

    Trump Supreme Court Nominee Neil Gorsuch Sustains Pattern Of Extremism

    All in all Gorsuch seems like a good choice to replace Scalia, well educated, consistent, and even tempered. Unfortunately, his one notable credential is exactly the one that I consider to be one of the biggest dangers to our constitutional jurisprudence…

    Nuclear Holocaust: Grups vs Youngens – Buy The Book !!!

    So, if you followed that line of thinking so far, you’re probably a Grup, at which point you’re probably dissing this non-sense because it must be about toccin’ to the Youngens. If that’s what you are thinking, you are wrong. In fact, my pollyannish satirical diatribes are almost always directed at the Grups. No, I do not live in Birmingham, I know Michael Jackson is dead, and I don’t think Bernie Sanders is all that clever.

    Mr. Trump’s Whirlwind Tour: “You Think This Country Is So Innocent?”

    I could point out the “collateral” damage of innocent bystanders during our militaristic tirades,.. And, I could point out the obtuse decadence and indifference of billion dollars a minute Super Bowl commercials, and everything else in American culture, while there is poverty, hunger, and homelessness right here at home in the United States… ad nauseum.

    Eric Parker – Madison, Alabama Police Officer | Mistrial, Miscarriage, Gangland Thug

    In Eric Parker’s trial, one or more moron’s refused to convict what was obvious at face value. Eric Parker used excessive and unnecessary force leaving the Indian Grandpa partially paralyzed. It is impossible to understand how a rational person could not find him guilty. Unfortunately, there are idiots who believe that their personal agenda is more important than legitimate due process.
