Mexican Laborer Delivers Devastating Response To Donald Trump In 58 Seconds — & Never Stops Working



Transcript provided in the video, with occasional curse words omitted:

INTERVIEWER: Hi. Can I ask you something? What do you think about that guy?

LABORER: Donald Trump? That son of a gun who says we’re all thieves? Look, bastard, how we rape…these stakes! How we work ourselves to death just to eat. I make $1,100/week and the government takes $350 to feed your lazy, unemployed drug addicts. Look at these guys, busting their butts in the sun. It’s 107 degrees Fahrenheit, it was 115 degrees earlier. Look at these guys, flooring a mile a minute. What rapists and criminals?

INTERVIEWER: Which drugs do you do?

LABORER: This is my drug, you bastard! (Holds up a sledgehammer) This one’s my drug and this one’s (holds up a hammer) my booze, fool!

Obama: Repubs almost have enough candidates for 2016 to throw their own ‘Hunger Games

“We’ve got some healthy competition in the Democratic Party, but I’ve lost count of how many Republicans are running for this job,” Obama quipped in a campaign-style event.

“They’ll have enough for an actual Hunger Games,” he said, referring to the popular fight-to-the-death young adult novels.

Though he did not mention Walker by name, Obama clearly had him in mind. The two men met at the airport where Air Force One landed, shaking hands and chatting amiably.

Donald Trump IS the GOP.


Otherwise bright professional people seem shocked that Donald Trump is doing as well as he is.

Which is weird.

Because if you have watched the GOP dumbspiral down, down, down for the last 40 years from anyplace other than inside the Beltway bubble, Trump making a strong early showing is a perfectly logical next step. He is Crazy Uncle Liberty with money: a braying moron, invincibly confident in his own racist and impregnably ignorant opinions.

Trump doesn’t just represent the Republican base on immigration. He is the Republican base on immigration. His anxieties are their anxieties. And his rhetoric—a revanchist stew of foreign policy belligerence, small government ideology, anti-elite agitation, and raw bigotry—reflects and appeals to a meaningful part of the Republican electorate.

Dylann Roof’s Sister Uses Charleston Massacre On GoFundMe To Pay For Wedding, Honeymoon

http://www.postandcourier.com/article/20150702/PC16/150709873

&maxw=800&q=90

The sister of the man accused of killing nine people at Emanuel AME Church has launched an online campaign to raise money to pay for her wedding and honeymoon after a planned June ceremony had to be cancelled in the wake of the massacre.

Amber Roof has started a Go Fund Me page and is asking for $5,000 to “cover lost wedding costs, to pay bills, and to send us on our dream honeymoon.” She pledged to donate 10 percent of the money raised to Emanuel AME Church.

As of this morning, $1,490 had been pledged.

...............

On her page, Amber Roof said her wedding was supposed to be “the day every girl dreams of,” with the perfect venue and vows ready to be read.

The entire statement on her GoFundMe page read:


Dear Family & Friends,

As many of you know Michael and I had to abruptly cancel our wedding day, due to the tragedy that occurred in Charleston. June 21st was suppose to be the happiest day of our lives. It is the day every girl dreams of, it was the day we dreamed of. We had each other, we have the perfect venue, and we had our vows ready to be read. We were ready! We had planned out every detail for months and months. It was going to be the PERFECT day!

Our wedding day was suppose to be the most important and special day of our lives. It was suppose to start our lives together with our new family. Our day was the exact opposite. Our wedding day was full of sorrow, pain, and shame, tainted by the actions of one man.

The Charleston Massacre took place and our lives were forever changed. The media abused our privacy and published all of our wedding information and destroyed our dream day. Destroying the first day of Michael and my life together.

We cancelled our wedding to protect our family and mourn the lives of those lost. Many friends and family members came into town and took time off of work to be there for us. We could not ask you to do that again.

We would like the chance to start our lives on a postive note. Therefore, we have decided to start a Go Fund Me account. We know money cannot replace the wedding we lost and our perfect day, however it will help us to create new memories and a new start with our new family.

Money raised will be used to cover lost wedding costs, to pay bills, and to send us on our dream honeymoon. 10% of all funds raised will be donated to Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. We thank you for any contrabution you can make.

Our lives have been forever changed and touched by all the love and support you have shown us through this difficult time. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS! GOD BLESS!

You, Too, Can Buy a Congressman!

You, Too, Can Buy a Congressman!

The best investment you can make isn't gold or some revolutionary technology.

The best investment you can make is to buy a politician!

Investing in a politician can yield more returns than any stock or other commodity ever could:



.....according to www.opensecrets.org, oil, gas and coal companies donated at least $43,000 to Zincke's campaign. That's more than 10 percent of Ryan Zincke's total contributions from Political Action Committees.

And what are the companies getting in return? They're avoiding paying $19 million a year for taking that coal from you and me and the rest of the US, which owns the public lands.

Over the last two years, they've made $38 million on a $43,000 investment.

So Ryan Zincke's investors are seeing a rate of return that's over 86,000 percent.
