Trump: Fixing the country is like fixing one of my golf courses

In the nonsense Trump says I'm hearing echoes of Peter Sellers as Chance (Chauncey) Gardiner

At one point, Mr. Trump even compared his renovation of Trump Turnberry with how he is hoping to overhaul the United States as president. When a reporter pointed out — correctly — that a country is hardly a golf course, Mr. Trump replied: “No it’s not, but you’ll be amazed how similar it is. It’s a place that has to be fixed.”

Hillary: Trump has written a lot of books about business, they all end at chapter 11

Donald J. Trump has written a lot of books about business, but they all seem to end at Chapter 11.

Looking forward to the implementation of the new rules! Long live civility!

Tick Tock! 5 hours and 15 minutes and counting!

CEO of Trump SuperPac plead guilty to massive ponzi scheme in 1995

The CEO of Trump Super PAC "Get our jobs back", http://www.getourjobsbackinc.com/ , Steven Hoffenberg, in 1995 pleaded guilty to bilking investors out of $475 million in one of the largest pre-Madoff Ponzi schemes in history and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
See http://www.nytimes.com/1995/04/21/business/hoffenberg-confesses-to-ponzi-scheme.html

This is inconvenient considering what the ‪#‎TrumpUniversity‬ allegations already say about Trump. And yes its the same guy, its mentioned on the front page of the Super Pac website.

The lesson is clear. If you want to lead a political revolution from the left in the US

African Americans and Latinos better be part of your coalition from its earliest incarnations. They're not someone you try to pick up along the way.

Hispanic Official to Leave R.N.C. in Sign of Disaffection With Donald Trump

Cancer has a higher approval among Latinos than Donald Trump does.

The head of Hispanic media relations at the Republican National Committee is resigning this month in what appears to be another indication of the lingering discomfort some party officials have about working to elect Donald J. Trump president.

Ruth Guerra, who is of Mexican descent and was in charge of carrying the party’s message to Hispanic voters, is joining the American Action Network, a Republican-aligned “super PAC,” she confirmed in a brief interview on Wednesday.

But Ms. Guerra told colleagues this year that she was uncomfortable working for Mr. Trump, according two R.N.C. aides who requested anonymity to speak candidly about the difficulties surrounding the party’s presumptive standard-bearer.

It is relatively rare for party staff members to leave the national committee in the midst of a presidential campaign unless they are going to work directly for the nominee.

I can't believe Zimmerman the creep is going to make mid 8 figures from sale of that gun

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2016/05/13/bids-george-zimmerman-gun-auction-top-50m/84319096/

Bidding in an online auction for the gun George Zimmerman used to kill Trayvon Martin was up to $65 million Friday morning as Internet trolls appeared to drive the offers to astronomic levels.

Bidding on the 9 mm Kel-Tec PF-9 pistol began at $5,000 and reached more than $65 million early Friday. The top bidder at one point used the screen name “Racist McShootface.” That account was later deleted. Another bidder used the name Tamir Rice, which is the name of a 12-year-old boy shot by police in Cleveland while carrying a toy gun.

The most recent bid topping $65 million is by someone identified as Craig Bryant.




Conservative writer P.J. O'Rourke endorses Hillary over Trump

Still, there are some conservatives who are not knuckling under to the New Normal of Trumpism Triumphant. One of my favorite resisters is the beloved conservative humorist P. J. O’Rourke, who says –wait for it – he’s voting for Hillary. And his explanation is interesting:

I am endorsing Hillary. The second worst thing that could happen to this country. But she’s way behind in second place, you know? She’s wrong about absolutely everything — but she’s wrong within normal parameters! . . . I mean, this man just can’t be president of the US. I mean, they got this button, it’s in a briefcase, he’s gonna find it.

Now, remember: P. J. O’Rourke is so right-wing that he once made fun of FDR as being on the wheelchair ramp to the Gates of Hell. That right-wing enough for ya? This is no “RINO GOPe cuck squish” we’re talking about here.

I hold myself up to the judgment of this group regarding this accusation

http://www.democraticunderground.com/12511677501#post20

I hated the idea of "No Snitching" and I still do. I think its a terrible idea. But I submit myself to the judgment of this group.

Do you think I am racist for having that opinion?
