Imagine if you will,...:icon_eek:

Donald Trump gets elected President of the United States,...
Everywhere he goes, at all times of the day and night,...he has the Nuclear Football in close proximity, in case of a nuclear attack,...

...Then, it is revealed that Donald Trump is in actuality a deep-cover KGB agent,...:dazzled:
Then he can make friends with Putin Resulting on world peace. :)

Get your facts first, and then you can distort them.

Could you trust a man married thrice {3} , ending mostly because of infidelity = cheating ?

Strange republicans with their sacred and sacrosanct pseudo-christian viewpoints would
consider him a candidate, representing their viewpoints, morals & ethics.  Mirror images ?

To the NSA: please remove me from your database - it's a tongue in cheek comment and
I'am not a national security threat because I refuse to wear a toupee.

the real problem with trump is not his morals, or even his terrible hair
it's the way he amassed his wealth

typical trump business model:
create a parent company
create a number of subsidiaries
put money into the parent, which then "invests" in the subsidiaries

now, any given subsidiary may be a gain or a loss
if it's a gain, he "wins at the game"
(actually, to be considered a gain, it has to return better than, say, 10% per year of the investment)

if it's a loss, then he drives the subsidiary into bankruptcy
in bankruptcy, the taxpayers carry most of the burden of debt
again, he "wins at the game", this time at the expense of the public

so, win or lose, he comes out ahead
the parent company is protected from the results of the subsidiaries

the republicans seem to think this is a "good guy", if that gives you some idea how they think
not to say the democrats are any better
many wealthy people do the same thing, just not as well as trump has done it

Truth be told, there are no good guys. At least not in any of the two political mafias masquerading as parties. They get eliminated early in the process. What remains are the ones with most ability to do fundraising. Is no secret that the #1 activity of politicians is fundraising. Which is selling influence in government at the highest bidder.

Just as capitalism is based on perception of value, so are the elections.

The game, a winners take all one, always end in two parties representing no one but themselves. And people voting for turd A for fear of turd B and turd B for fear of turd A. A weighted system can take care of that, but as is the mafias the ones that decide when to call an amendment is wishful thinking.

Knowing this, I am going to get some popcorn and enjoy the show. At least candidates like Trump make it a fun one  :lol:

As an example of Government being run by Business interests,there is a bill working its way through congress,and what it does is prevent anyone from pushing for transparency of what is in food,in its main it prohibits anyone(Federal,state or local) from making food distributors show if said food is Genitally altered(this bill would disallow even local Gov to make this law) so no one would know what,or where their food comes from. Their argument is that such labeling law(showing where food comes from) would drive up food cost..

Sounds like something that MontSatan (sorry MontSanto) would push.
I would argue that it would lower the price of GMO foods. Making the profit margin not as high, thus lowering the incentive of using GMO instead of natural foods.

Besides, with the ridiculous surplus of Mexicans, there should be no problems to find people for agriculture.

Well thanks anunitu. Back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, for a summer job in Boston I scored highest they'd ever seen on a test proofreading technical writing - 200 words per minute. In a way that's not boasting, I'm talking about a complete stranger who died long ago, and has essentially nothing in common with me except the name (today, it would be 50 WPM).

So I've gotten compliments b4 on my eyes, but for some reason the ladies seem to prefer the wooden spoon 8)
