No, Mr. Trump, hiring workers is not the same as dying in defense of your country.

“Pressed by Stephanopoulos to name the sacrifices he’d made for his country, Trump said: ‘I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard. I’ve created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures. I’ve had tremendous success. I think I’ve done a lot.'”  [usatoday.com]

 

Compared to our warriors in the grave laid

Like the Muslim-American killed in a raid.

Trump was asked , “Be precise.

What did you sacrifice?”

“I am proud of the thousands of  jobs I have made.”

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Trump speaks to supporters during a campaign rally at Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, New York

 “The son of a wealthy real estate developer, Trump received four student deferments that were followed by a 1968 medical deferment that came a few months after he graduated from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.” [thesmokinggun.com]

  • We should keep in mind that, although Trump has not sacrificed until now, if he becomes president he will sacrifice much:
    Poland,
    Romania,
    Ukraine,
    Latvia,
    Lithuania,
    Estonia.

    Nott wishing to disagree, but your list seems a little short. Probably ¾ of the Middle East. For instance he said he was going to make Israel deal, notwithstanding what our meddler in Jewish and Israeli affairs says. Trump has had at least 6 positions on ISIS, including "let Saddam handle it" and "let Putin handle it," Trump also says he is willing to deal with the DPRK, the counterweight being giving Japan and S. Korea nukes. I thought we learned in WWII that the latter was not a good idea.

    Gen John Allen summarized the situation, but I'll discuss him in the previous thread.

  • BREAKING NEWS: Traitor!

    In Other News: Hillary fiddles Progs increasingly retreat to hyperbolic fantasy world.

    Government Accountability Institute? Objectivity manque.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Again, you made me look at Merriam Webster, but well expressed.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    ¼zen: I also find it psychological projection that a supporter of someone who advocated Russian espionage and was called a traitor now uses the term on someone else. You are certainly a strange one to be categorizing people as traitors or patriots.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    BREAKING NEWS: ¼zen can you cite anything POSITIVE your candidate had to say? I guess not, since he hasn't had anything.

    In fact, the Tribune has a headline "Defiant Donald Trump: I've been 'viciously attacked' by Muslim family." This seems to be the worst thing to happen in thugdom since since Nelson Muntz cried because someone told him that his father was kidnapped by the circus.

    Like I said, you seem to have some need to troll unverified blogs, but your candidate lacks the elemental decency, humanity, or common sense to apologize and move on. Who is he and you going to insult tomorrow?

  • In reply to jack:

    Jackazz, if you weren't such a coward you would address the content of my post. The information is all over the place, including 'Clinton Cash.'

    Instead, you and Aquinas hide under your partisan beds attacking sources, praying for the latest media false flag to bail out your monadic positions. Where is there an unbiased source?

    Far as your dribble on the Middle East, you have to be a special kind of fool to not see what Obama/Clinton have orchestrated there, Europe is fkd. And now they want to bring that pestilence back here, lets hope you get a big dose of it in your backyard. They're going to love you buddy.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    Sure, 4Nazi.

    And your bully hasn't suggested a solution. One of his buddy Putin's helicopters was just shot down in Syria.

    And you still have not provided anything responsive to
    ¼zen can you cite anything POSITIVE your candidate had to say? .

    Take that dare before you expect anyone to respond to you.

  • In reply to jack:

    Kim Jackazz-un,
    You're becoming unhinged again, maybe someone needs another nappy with mommy.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    Sure 4NAZI. Keep projecting yourself on me.

    I said you were too stupid to figure out that Kim Jung Un supports TRUMP. Do you think I do?

    Not only are you reduced to your fuehrer's tactic of insults, you don't even have his knack of formulating them.

    There is something seriously wrong with you. I suggested how you could seek help. DO IT.

    Or maybe AW should just ban you from this forum, since you seem incapable of contributing in a constructive manner. Maybe you'll come up with some insult for jnorto next.

  • I'm not going to give Dennis Byrne click count, but his chicagonow headline says exactly what Trump is doing. ¼zen can't figure that out.

    Remember when I said Bloomberg and Trump had the same objective, just different means?

  • Is Trump the Russian candidate? Journalists are now taking a closer look at Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign manager. The New York Times (which some find as reliable as the online Government Accountability Institute) reported today that Manafort's last client, President Viktor F. Yanukovych, of Ukraine "who owed his election to, as an American diplomat put it, an 'extreme makeover” Mr. Manafort oversaw." Yanukovych bolted the country in the face of violent street protests and found sanctuary in Russia, as his patron, President Vladimir V. Putin, proceeded to dismember Ukraine, annexing Crimea and fomenting a war in two other provinces that continues. "Within months of his client’s political demise, [Manafort] went to work seeking to bring his disgraced party back to power, much as he had Mr. Yanukovych himself nearly a decade earlier. Mr. Manafort has already had some success, with former Yanukovych loyalists — and some Communists — forming a new bloc opposing Ukraine’s struggling pro-Western government."

  • In reply to jnorto:

    Or is Hillary the Russian candidate.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    Breitbart, the only source of facts, I presume.

    Have a good day.

  • It even appears that Pence is trying to distance himself from his running mate. As the thug says "Not good."

  • In reply to 4zen:

    Anti-Semite, Anti-Muslim 4myself, trolling the blogs again. I guess their son didn't die.

  • In reply to jack:

    There it is folks, the last refuge of a tired intellect. Someone's really having a bad day. Ha!

    'Oh please give me back my echo chamber AW'

  • In reply to 4zen:

    I'm sorry you describe yourself in that manner. I hope you have a better day tomorrow.

  • In reply to jack:

    Hey, thanx Jack. See how much better it is when you're civil.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    BTW:
    1. Mark Cuban just called your man what you called me. I'm with Cuban.
    2. I've decided not to goad the mentally ill. I've also decided not to vote for a candidate who has manifest personality disorders.

    So your work is done. Have a good day.

  • Trump got his name as usual on the CNN banner. However it was TRUMP CONDEMNED FOR ATTACK ON GOLD STAR FAMILY. Essentially the same on FNC, but they eventually got to Hillary. I guess, though, that's the publicity he wants.

    As Roe Conn pointed out. let's see how he walks back from this one, like he tried to do with the Russian espionage one. He had recordings from Trump's Ministress of Propaganda that somehow George Stephanopoulos set him up or tricked him.

  • Colbert stated in his WERD segment that Trump says something even more outrageous to make us forget the last outrage, and mused what it would be next. Tribune headline may have answered that:
    National politics
    Trump says election might be 'rigged,' calls Clinton 'the devil'

    Maybe today's events here may show a path around this. All that has to happen is the Khans apologize and the Democrats forfeit the race, and the raging cantaloupe will be satiated, for the moment.

    Colbert also had an interesting video juxtaposition about how Trump otherwise lied to Stephanopoulos.

    The Donald News Network also must be leaving the ship. Colbert noted that Fareed Zakaria called Trump a bull(bleep) artist, but while CBS censored him. CNN did not censor its reporter (CNN video).

    On the other hand, a kitten pooped on Colbert's desk.

  • Warren Buffet on a challenge to disclose tax returns:

    "You are afraid only if you have something to be afraid about." "He's not afraid of the IRS. He's afraid because of you."

    Is the bully going to take Warren up on it? As I said "I've also decided not to vote for a candidate who has manifest personality disorders."
