    On my incident, I posted my concern on a Lake Havasu boating forum, and the owner of the company said those boxes were "old stock" and have all been sold, and NOW, everything is made in the US of A. Umm huh.

    If Trump wanted to give someone a medal, Gary Sinise would have been more appropriate than Tiger Woods. Sinise builds several handicap accessible home for amputee veterans each year that the veteran gets free. He recently paid for 1,000 children of deceased soldiers to spend five days at Disney World.

    A man died and went to Heaven seeking entrance. As he stood in front of the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.





    He asked "What are all these clocks for?"






    St Peter answered, "These are Lie-clocks. Everyone on earth has a lie-clock. Every time you lie the hands on the clock move.





    "Oh". said the man. "Whose clock is that?"





    "That's Mother Theresa", replied St. Peter. "The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie”.


    “Incredible", said the man.





    “And whose clock is this one?”



    St Peter responded, "That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abraham told only two lies in his entire life."








    "Where is Donald Trump's clock?" asked the man.






    St. Peter replied, “We are using it as a ceiling fan"

    I've been absent from this thread for awhile & haven't read the posts to keep up, but I saw something today that I wanted to share.
    So, Eric Swalwell isn't endearing himself to people.
    Imagine if someone asked him this question during a debate. Some Democrats defended his post as saying the person asking was a "known troll". So, if she was, why would he even reply at all? On one hand, it's a funny response, on the other, it's not a good reply for a presidential candidate. The optics are bad. Also, regardless of whether people consider her a troll, she asked a valid question. I don't think a lot of these candidates think about how they are going to accomplish things.
    So, say they pass this law to go round up guns, how will they do it? Will they have to violate 4th Amendment rights to accomplish it?

    Swalwell is the one who suggested using nukes against Americans who refused to turn in their guns.

    The gun confiscation/buy back in New Zealand is not going well. Out of an estimated 300,000 guns, 530 have been turned in.

    Yeah. I actually replied to Swalwell to say she had a valid point & that rolling eyes at people was not going to work in debates. I also asked how he would propose finding out who has the "assault guns" & how he would take them away w/o violating 4th Amendment rights or ending up in bloodshed from people who would shoot law enforcement rather than give up their guns. Bc frankly, the people who are the dangers are the ones who won't voluntarily give up their guns. And others who are not normally a threat could resort to violence to defend their property from seizure.

    Other people pointed out that the 100% is the exact opposite of his ratings/chances in the election.

    I suspect he might not make it to the primaries. He puts his foot in his mouth & I don't think he has a realistic sense of how to accomplish his goals. One of my pet peeves is candidates who come in & claim they are going to do things but don't have an actual plan of how to get to the end result.

    Trump has it in the can unless the Demoncrats pull out some new unknown messiah to replace Biden. Biden is a canned comment waiting to be spoken. He's like Obama Version 1.5 with a W Vista operating system.
    Original Trump voters are all in. No way would they vote for Biden. Sanders it a horror story in the making. He has zero chance because of his radical views.
    .......................if Trump can stop or slow down his idiotic Twitter comments. :rolleyes: Naw, he can't. I was dreaming. :D
    He'll still gonna win pretty easy, but his Twitter comments have have bothered me from day one. It probably bothers 99% of his "followers" too, but Trump is "Trump" , a Braggart, egotist, but unlike his predecessor, he's trying to make America great instead of doing a round the world apology tour. Trump would gain 5 points overnight if he'd just delete his Twitter account.
    America has nothing to apologize for. Even when we've messed up it was with worthy intent.
    Trump want walls and American jobs............ Dems want a door mat that says welcome and we will provide. :rolleyes:
    The ever so hopeful anti-Trump media machine is in full force and they have not learned a darned thing since they screwed up their previous attempt to influence the last election.
    .......as Martha would say.
    It's ................a good thing. :D
    I mean................ has anyone heard anything positive reported about Trumps visit to Britain?
    That alone says a lot.

    Until the Brits once again get their chi chi in a wringer and need to be bailed out again. They will then be kissing Trump's hairy toes.

    Trump has straight up committed criminal acts via witness intimidation & encouraging boycotts of companies with his tweets. It's not just inappropriate for him to do as president, it's illegal.

    Sanders is all mouth, but he hired a guy with connections to the Russian mob as his campaign manager & he voted against sanctions on Russia.

    We'll have to agree to disagree about Trumps intents & affect on the US. LOL.

    But the Democrats just drag their feet. People defied subpoenas & instead of immediately holding them in contempt (which the GOP would have done) they say, "Oh, we'll have hearing next week about whether or not to hold them in contempt" & then never did anything. I'm really wishing a 3rd party candidate could get enough votes bc neither party is doing what they need to do. We've got GOP members witness tampering/obstructing & encouraging people to break the law & the Democrats just being doormats. Both have written strongly worded letters about how they oppose something, but neither have really acted on it. When it comes to voting, some of the GOP members will say they are against something, but then vote for it-- that's when McConnell actually allows a vote. Once he's out, we need to reform the laws so no one person can have that much power. One day it could be a Democrat in that position cockblocking all bills coming from a GOP controlled house. It's just not right. Both parties are too caught up in a pissing match to care about what it's doing to the citizens.

    Candidates are saying "I'm going to do x, y, z" but when asked how they will do it, they deflect bc they have no real plans. It's like the underpants gnomes from south park. Step 1: steal underpants. Step 2: ???. Step 3: Profit!

    Yes, they drag do their feet. When Trump was elected and promised a wall, and border enforcement and added border security, and sending illegals home ....... what happened?
    Now that the Democrats have given them a virtual green light by being able to stop the wall and enforcement especially "sanctuary cities"............ what has happened?

    Got the impression that Nichols might be self-inflicted. Smith is being investigated as a homicide.
