Greece is the Word

"Didn't I give a speech here before?"

“This looks familiar. Didn’t I give a speech here before?”

Obama is touring Greece on the first leg of his “Goodbye Cruel World” tour.

This is an open thread.

  1. The press didn’t stop either assassin. They never saw Oswald shoot JFK. If not for the press maybe Jack Ruby wouldn’t have killed Oswald.

    They’re not press, they’re paparazzi. Like the vultures who chased Diana to her death.

        She’s gone mad. Obama pushed out the media many times. Infact it’s why he went on so many vacations and golfed so much. He was just more subtle about it. Remember how he only allowed photos in the WH to be taken by the WH photographer, not the press? Obama loved stagecraft. But the media again got duped and don’t get it. Though personally, i’d more like to see trump take a keep my enemies close approach woth the press so they can’t pick and choose and say he just wanted a photo op. They could instead pick up spontaneous moments of good.

          I remember a time where he was going to Camp David (which he rarely did), and they said that they had to land the helicopter and drive the rest of the way, because the weather was bad. They had a car waiting that he got in to, and they drove off.

          My Marine, future SIL, was on that trip. He happened to call that day, and I started laughing about the ‘story’ that the weather was bad, and they had to land the helicopter before arriving at Camp David. (There was a lot of chatter on the internet about it because people that live in the area were chiming in stating that the weather was fine.)

          Do you know that he called ME (not my daughter) the next day from Camp David, trying to convince me that the weather really was bad. I’d still love to know who was meeting with Obama that day.

          Oh well, I should now empty my mind of those conspiracy thoughts, and enjoy my Camp David T-shirt.

          You are sweet, but naïve. They’re going to trash every word out of his mouth. He should exclude every one of them from every conference until they demonstrate they can report without the incredible bias.

      Uhm, Trump isn’t the President yet. I wish he was because I’m not real trusting of Prezzy Lameduck with a grudge.

          I don’t know – he may look at it as “what’s the point?”. He’ll do something like put some of his staff in permanent civil service positions to embed them in the bureaucracy, he’ll pardon a lot of criminals, but any sweeping things, I’m sure he’ll realize he’s spinning his wheels.

    • kanaughty says:

      So with this comment are they suggesting they want to ne there when he is taken out, cause they only use that as an example of why they should be there in two instances. Not we were there when gw realized 9/11 was a terrorist attack, but assassination attempts? Really?

    • Venus says:

    • blowme0bama says:

      Yeah, this “press pool” is so important, they can’t be bothered to report on the huge Greek anti-Obama protests.

      If the press is so important, why do I see Tur re-tweeting Vox on her timeline?

    I agree with elliesmom in a previous thread that we can celebrate Trump’s victory. We’ve given the darlings enough time to grieve for the lady who had too much baggage to be president.

    • Lulu says:

      I’m starting to really like this Pence guy. Trump says “You’re fired!” and Pence says “Get the fuck out NOW!” No wonder the NYT was whining about a change in the Washington mafia culture.

    • kanaughty says:

      It’s funny because obama said he would do it, but didn’t end up doing anything of the sort. So full of words. He just wanted to be a symbol not necessarily an actual leader.

    • Lulu says:

      This statement is directed at his now not operable “foundation” donors and middle eastern despots who are not going to be giving him birthday checks or Euro-trash “intellectual” dinners. Think of the schmucks who have already promised money for his library. And imagine a “community organizer” think tank. Soros already has that covered so what is he going to grift on? White people are now a special interest, civil rights, ethnic, racial identity, voting bloc. He fucked up. Although he is still flailing away at the globalist scheme of borderless, lawless, culture-less, no human sovereignty world.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Obama needs to raise bazillons for his library and foundation, probably why on this world tour, hit up those countries for a little Pay2Play. He can write a lot of checks back at them in 65 days. Hope Congress notices what’s being stuck in the budget.

    Good morning deplorables ! Don’t let the stupid media spoil your day 🙂

    • Somebody says:

      She had an exclusive interview on her show last night from inside the Trump campaign. She interviewed a guy that did the metadata and microtargeting for the campaign. This was his first political campaign, but he’s been doing this kind of work for businesses for years, including Trump enterprises.

      • Lulu says:

        So Trump knew that the Republican “consultants” were overpriced (and not even first rate) scammers as he had been using what they were selling for years.

      • taw46 says:

        I saw that. The media, but, but, Trump had no organization!!

        • Lulu says:

          My favorite thing is still Hillary’s fabulous get out the vote network got Trump voters out instead. They PRESUMED everyone was a Hillary voter. Too, too funny. I wonder if they bused them to the polls or paid them walking around money too.

  4. God forbid that people get their news unfiltered.

    • Lulu says:

      More made up bullshit from Bobby Reich. In Latin “media” is the feminine of medius. The nouns meaning (Plural) is a format for communicating or presenting information. It is one of the most basic Latin terms. It does not come from “mediate” which is just another made up word which is a late English term which borrowed “media” from Latin. The English word means to settle (disputes, strikes, etc.) as an intermediary between parties; reconcile. Latin Medius is communication and has nothing to do with settling disputes.

    • Dora says:

      And we all know what the word ‘Reich’ means.

    GREECE IN FLAMES: Riots in Athens at Obama’s visit as Greeks scream ‘Barack go home’

    FURIOUS protesters have screamed for Barack Obama to “go home” and launched petrol bombs at police as the US President landed in Europe today.

    • DeniseVB says:

      So actual news breaks out and the media …. invited on the world tour…. fail to cover that?

    • Lulu says:

      It seems that this is an annual “thing” about some other thing and an uprising and anarchists. But Broncobama being there made it worse. And the history and cultural and diplomatic illiterates at the White House didn’t check it out or ignored the Greeks. The Greeks hate Goldman Sachs vehemently and know Bronco is connected at the hip with them as well as the interference in Syria to secure a pipeline for GK and their ilk they thought a rioting send off a good idea. It looks to me like “sorry, not sorry” Bronco.

      • lateblum says:

        Of course they didn’t check out the Greeks. Don’t you know they/we are so smart we don’t need any new information. And if the old information isn’t good any more, It’s “not my fault”.

    Criminal complaint filed by FBI against 24 who threatened to murder US President elect Trump dated 11/10/16.

That man deserves to decease (sic) existing.’ “Benson said he had no intention of following through with the threat and was ‘just frustrated thinking about how President-elect Trump’s policies could affect his job’.”
      “SuperStation95 contacted the US Secret Service to inquire about how many “threats” against the President-elect have been reported to them since election day. They replied “very many.” When asked how many of those persons can expect to be arrested, the Secret Service spokesman replied “All of them.” ALL OF THEM. This fool is in jail awaiting a bail hearing. Also note he was “frustrated” on how Trump’s election would affect his JOB. It is all about money.

  11. kanaughty says:

    I’ve been thinking this morning that if the dnc does go ahead and pick ellison, that will be a big middle finger to the middle working class. The dnc would be saying we don’t need you to win elections to the middle working class. Sounds familiar like what brazile told us pumas.

    This pick would prove they just want to move further left. But the middle class doesn’t want to hear these leftists ideas like their 70/80 hr paid work week will get taxed more for redistribution. Or how their tax dollars will go to pay for other kids free college when they still have their own kid to send to and pay for a private college for instance. They don’t want to hear how their tax dollars are going to support illegal aliens when they see americans or vets homeless or without any care.

    The dnc will not learn their lesson and they are reckless. It’s obvious that the people they are targeting with an ellison pick, are not taking the time to go out and vote. They just like to riot and cause chaos and take our hard earned money for free.

    It makes me sick to my stomach that this is the direction they want to pursue. But at the same time, if repubs keep with a populist message, then they will keep me as a voter and a lot of working middle class people who don’t have to bribe to vote.

    This is the same reason i didn’t like gw’s form of republicanism, i thought they were too far right on social issues. But ultimately, they’ve kicking and screaming figured out that’s not what voters want.

    Basically if they pick ellison, they are horrible strategists and will prove it at the ballot box again next time. The lot of them are horrible people too.

    They needed to pick someone more like webb or booker (even though he reminds me of obama he’s still more centrist than activist ellison).

    • DeniseVB says:

      The Dems need to throw out the trash and rebuild. They’ve been losing their party since 2010, squeaked by in 2012, then kept losing. Isn’t Ellison pro-Sharia law? What a smack in the face to the women and gays.

      Hoping Jim Webb would join the Trump Train, he’d be great cleaning up the VA. I like Booker, but he’s too dependent on party politics which seems to avoid putting him “on the bench”. I blame that on Hillary not letting any of the fresh cream rise to the top which would threaten her.

      My prog friends on FB are posting Elizabeth Warren hectoring videos now in that if she says Trump is a bigot, he’s a bigot. She’s the future of their party?

      • taw46 says:

        The trash runs the DNC, party is owned by Obama and his fellow Marxists. Looks like the party intends to keep moving left, which has accelerated in the last 8 yrs. When I left the Dems in 2008, it was for good. I don’t see them once again becoming my mothers’s party anytime soon.

      • Somebody says:

        Elizabeth Warren is the future of the dems, that’s funny! She’s the same age as Hillary isn’t she?

        The republicans have a deep bench of young guns. Some I like more than others, but I’ll keep my powder dry for now. Kanaughty I think if it’s left up to Trump he’ll avoid the wedge social issues. I think he will push to repeal the Johnson amendment and as well it should be repealed. Apparently it only applies to churches the left doesn’t like. AA churches have no issue get political and they are in your face about it. Nobody questions the political messages in mosques either. The law has never been enforced equitably, so I’m cool with it being repealed.

        All in all though, I think Trump doesn’t want to get bogged down in social issues. He wants to go full steam ahead on immigration, Obamacare, taxes and the economy.

        • elliesmom says:

          I think we’ll see a religious freedom act that prohibits people from suing mom and pop businesses over gay and lesbian issues. I don’t think the boys in the girls’ bathroom issue is going to get very much further. I don’t think the left should risk pushing any harder on abortion. I think they’ve lost the hearts and minds of a lot of people. School choice, maybe. All of those things would have the support of the Republicans in congress. Trump wouldn’t have to twist very many arms to get them passed.

  21. Muldoon in Love

    Afterwards, I felt bad for a while about Miss Deets, but Mom told me to stop fretting about it. She said the problem was Miss Deets had just been too delicate to teach third grade in our part of the country.

    Besides being delicate, Miss Deets must have also been rich. I don’t recall ever seeing her wear the same dress two days in a row. To mention the other extreme, Mr. Craw, one of the seventh-grade teachers at Delmore Blight Grade School, wore the same suit every day for thirty years. Once, when Mr. Craw was sick, the suit came to school by itself and taught his classes, but only Skip Moseby noticed that Mr. Craw wasn’t inside the suit. Skip said the suit did a fair job of explaining dangling participles, which turned out to be a kind of South American lizard. I would have liked to hear the suit’s lecture, because at the time I was particularly interested in lizards. But I digress from Miss Deets.

    No one could understand why a rich and genteel lady like Miss Deets would want to teach third grade at Delmore Blight, but on the first day of school, there she was, smellingof perfume and money, her auburn hair piled on top of her head, her spectacles hanging by a cord around her long, slender, delicate neck. We stood there gawking at her, scarcely believing our good fortune in getting this beautiful lady as our very own third-grade teacher.

    We boys all fell instantly in love with Miss Deets, but none more than my best friend, Crazy Eddie Muldoon. I loved her quite a bit myself at first, but Eddie would volunteer to skip recess so he could clean the blackboard erasers, whether they needed cleaning or not. For the first month of school, the third grade must have had the cleanest blackboard erasers in the entire history of Delmore Blight Grade School. For me, love was one thing, recess another. God had not intended the two to interfere with each other. But Crazy Eddie now skipped almost every recess in order to help Miss Deets with little chores around the classroom. She was depriving me of my best friend’s company, and bit by bit I began to hate her. I wished Miss Deets would go away and never come back.

    Worse yet, in his continuing efforts to prove his love for Miss Deets, Eddie started studying. He soon became the champion of our weekly spelling bees. “Wonderful, Edward!” Miss Deets would exclaim, when Eddie correctly spelled some stupid word nobody in the entire class would ever have reason to use. Then she would pin a ridiculous little paper star on the front of his shirt, the reward for being the last person standing in the spelling bee. It disgusted me to think Eddie would do all that work, learning how to spell all those words, for nothing more than having Miss Deets pin a ridiculous little paper star on his shirt.

    Then one day Miss Deets made her fateful error. “Now, pupils,” she announced, “I think it important for all youngladies and gentlemen to be able to speak in front of groups. So for the next few weeks we are going to have Show and Tell. Each day, one of you will bring one of your more interesting possessions to school, show it to the class, and then tell us all about it. Doesn’t that sound like fun?”

    Three-fourths of the class, including myself, cringed in horror. We didn’t own any possessions, let alone interesting ones! Miss Deets looked at me and smiled. “Patrick, would you like to be first?”

    I put on my thoughtful expression, as though mentally sorting through all my fascinating possessions to select just the one with which to enthrall the class. My insides, though, churned in terror and embarrassment. What could I possibly bring to Show and Tell? The only thing that came to mind was the family post-hole digger. I imagined myself standing up in front of the class and saying, “This is my post-hole digger. I dig post holes with it.” No, Miss Deets probably had a longer speech in mind. I glanced around the room. Several hands of the rich kids from town were waving frantically for attention.

    “Uh, I need more time,” I told Miss Deets. Like about fifteen years, I thought, but I didn’t tell her that.

    “All right, then, Lester?” Miss Deets said to one of the rich kids. “You may be first.”

    The next day Lester brought his stamp collection to Show and Tell, and held forth on it for about an hour. An enterprising person could have cut the tedium into blocks and sold it for ice. But Miss Deets didn’t seem to notice. “That’s wonderful, Lester!” she cried. “Oh, I do think stamp collecting is such a rewarding hobby! Thank you very much, Lester, for such a fine and educational presentation. Would you like to clean the blackboard erasers during recess?”

    I glanced at Crazy Eddie. He was yawning. Eddie had a habit of yawning to conceal his occasional moments of maniacal rage. Good, I thought.

    At recess, Eddie refused to play. He stood with his hands jammed in his pockets, watching Lester on the third-grade fire escape, smugly pounding the blackboard erasers together. “Did you ever see anything more boring than that stupid stamp collection of Lester’s?” he said to me.

    “I think I did once,” I said. “But it was so boring I forget what it was.”

    “I’ve got to come up with something for Show and Tell, something really good,” Eddie said. “What do you think about a post-hole digger?”

    Lester’s stamp collection, however, was merely the beginning of a competition that was to escalate daily as each succeeding rich kid tried to top the one before. There were coin collections, doll collections, baseball-card collections, model airplanes powered by their own little engines, electric trains that could chew your heart out just looking at them, and on and on until we had exhausted the supply of rich kids in class. We were now down to us country kids, among whom there were no volunteers for Show and Tell. Miss Deets thought we were merely shy. She didn’t realize we had nothing to show and tell about.

    Rudy Griddle, ordered by Miss Deets to be the first of us to make a presentation, shuffled to the front of the class, his violent shaking surrounding him with a mist of cold sweat. He opened a battered cigar box and tilted it up so we could see the contents. “This here’s my collection of cigarette butts,” he said. “I pick ’em up along the road. You’ll notice there ain’t any shorter than an inch. If they’s an inch or longer they’s keepers. Some folks pick up cigarette butts tosmoke, but I don’t. I just collect them for educational purposes. Thank you.” He returned to his desk and sat down.

    The class turned to look at Miss Deets. Her mouth was twisted in revulsion. Suddenly, someone started clapping! Crazy Eddie Muldoon was applauding! And somebody else called out, “Yay, good job, Rudy!” The rest of us country kids joined in the applause and cheering and gave Rudy a standing ovation. He deserved it. After all, he had shown us the way. From now on, Show and Tell would really be interesting.

    Farley Karp brought in the skunk hide he had tanned himself and gave a very interesting talk on the process, even admitting that he had made a few mistakes, but after all, it was the first skunk hide he had ever tanned. He said he figured from what he had learned on the first one, the next skunk hide he tanned he probably could cut the smell by a good 50 percent, which would be considerable.

    Bill Stanton brought in his collection of dried wildlife droppings, which he had glued to a pine board in a tasteful display and varnished. It was a fine collection, with each item labeled as to its source.

    Manny Fogg, who had been unable to think of a single thing to bring to Show and Tell, was fortunate enough to cut his foot with a double-bitted ax three days before his presentation and was able to come in and unwrap the bandages and show us the wound, which his mother had sewed shut with gut leader. It was totally ghastly but also very interesting, and educational too, particularly if you chopped firewood with a double-bitted ax, as most of us did.

    Show and Tell had begun to tell on Miss Deets. Her face took on a wan and haunted look, and she became cross and jumpy. Once I think she went into the cloakroom and cried,because when she returned, her eyes were all red and glassy. That was the time Laura Ann Struddel brought in the chicken that all the other Struddel chickens had pecked half the feathers off of. Laura Ann had set the chicken on Miss Deets’s desk and was using a pointer to explain the phenomenon. The chicken, looking pleased to be on leave from the other chickens, but also a little excited at being the subject of Show and Tell, committed a small indiscretion right there on Miss Deets’s desk.

    “Oh, my gahhh …” Miss Deets gasped, her face going as red as dewberry wine, while we third-graders had a good laugh. This, after all, was the first humor introduced into Show and Tell. From then on, those of us who still had to do Show and Tell tried to work a little comedy into our presentations, but nobody topped the chicken.

    So many great things had been brought to Show and Tell by the other country kids that I had become desperate to find something of equal interest. Finally, I went with my road-killed toad, explaining how it had been flattened by a truck and afterwards had dried on the pavement, until I came along and peeled it up to save for posterity. The toad went over fairly well, and I even got a couple of laughs out of it, which is about all you can expect from a toad. Even so, Miss Deets chose not to compliment me on my performance. She just sat there slumped in her chair, fanning herself with a sheaf of arithmetic papers. I thought she looked a tad green, but that could have been my imagination.

    Now only Margaret Fisher and Crazy Eddie were left to do their Show and Tells. I knew Eddie was planning to use several pig organs from a recent butchering, provided they hadn’t spoiled too much by the time he got to use them. But Margaret changed his plans.

    She brought in a cardboard box and proudly carried it to the front of the room. Miss Deets backed off to a far corner, her hands fluttering nervously about her mouth, as Margaret pried up the lid of the box. A mother cat and four cute baby kittens stuck out their heads. Everyone oohed and aahed. Miss Deets went over and picked up one of the kittens and told Margaret what a wonderful idea she had had, to bring in the kittens, and would Margaret like to clean the blackboard erasers at recess?

    At recess, Eddie was frantic. “I can’t use the pig stuff now,” he said. “I got to come up with something live that has cute babies.”

    “How about using Henry?” I suggested.

    “Yeah, Henry’s cute, all right, but he don’t have no babies.”

    “Hey, I’ve got an idea!” I said. “I know some things we can use and just say they’re his babies. But you’d better call Henry a girl’s name. Heck, Miss Deets won’t know the difference.”

    Eddie smiled. I knew he was thinking he would soon have back his old job of cleaning the blackboard erasers for Miss Deets.

    Everyone in third grade counted on Crazy Eddie Muldoon to come up with a spectacular grand finale for Show and Tell. An air of great expectation filled the room as Eddie, carrying a lard pail, marched up to make his presentation. Even Miss Deets seemed to be looking forward to the event, possibly because it was the last of Show and Tell, but no doubt also because she expected one of her favorite pupils to come up with something memorable.

    With the flair of the natural showman, Eddie deftly flipped off the lid of the lard pail, in which he had punched air holes. “And now, ladies and gentlemen,” he announced,”here is Henrietta Muldoon … my pet garter snake.” He held up the writhing Henry.

    Miss Deets sucked in her breath with such force she stirred papers on desks clear across the room.

    “And that’s not all,” Crazy Eddie continued, although it was plain from the look on Miss Deets’s face that Henry all by himself was excessive. Beaming, Eddie thrust his other hand into the pail.

    “Here, ladies and gentlemen, are her babies!”

    He held up the squirming mass of nightcrawlers we had collected the evening before.

    At first I thought the sound was the distant wail of a fire siren, a defective one, with a somewhat higher pitch than normal. It rose slowly and steadily in volume, quavering, piercing, until it vibrated the glass in the windows and set every hair of every third-grader straining at its follicle. We were stunned to learn that human vocal cords could produce such an unearthly sound, and those of a third-grade teacher at that.

    Mr. Cobb, the principal, came and led Miss Deets away, and we never saw her again. We heard later that she had gone back to teach school in the city, where all the kids were rich and she could lead a peaceful and productive life.

    As the door closed behind her, I turned to Eddie and said, “I think you’ve cleaned your last blackboard eraser for Miss Deets.”

    “Yeah, I suspect you’re right,” he said sadly. Then he brightened. “But you got to admit that was one whale of a Show and Tell!”

    On fox now, illegals want obama to pardon them! Fuck them! Get in line and wait 7 years like legal aliens. I love the idea that trump might cut fedral aid to sanctuary cities! Awesome!

    • CiscoKid says:

      Without federal funding, those sanctuary cities will dry up.
      They can never ever make it without tax-payer money.

      • Lulu says:

        The scam is predicated on everyone in the country being forced through federal taxation to pay for their schemes for subsidized cheap labor for their rich donors AND illegals voting for the sanctuary city Dems. If they and their taxpayers were the only ones who pay for the illegals’ shit the tax rate would be so high they would either lose power or everyone and business would move out of the area decreasing the tax base and going broke even faster. It is a wealth transfer from citizen taxpayers to non citizens and those who profit from them. When the illegals bills no longer are paid the budgets will be in great shape. Illegals cannot afford to live here if they are not heavily subsidized by taxpayers.

        • Constance says:

          I think we are about two conservative supreme court justices away from voter ID laws nation wide. That should put an end to illegals voting regularly.

      • kanaughty says:

        Maybe the cities will start executing the law and stop making our own licenses as not worth the paper they are written on when they don’t any longer prove citizenship in some states because they give illegals licenses.

    • Lulu says:

      Pardon them for what? This makes zero sense. A pardon is for crimes committed through the date of the pardon and not for future crimes. It doesn’t change their immigration status. The immigration lawyers have been trying to explain this to them but they want King Bronco to wave a magic wand. The gravy train is over. Get out.

      • elliesmom says:

        You can’t pardon someone for crimes they haven’t committed yet. The second after Obama pardoned them, they’d be criminals again because they’re still here.

  23. CiscoKid says:

    My dear friends.
    I know that I’ve broken with tradition or protocol by calling President-elect Trump, President.
    But I’ve waited so long. This election cycle took a lot of wind out of my sails.
    I’m beat yet elated.
    Not to be morbid, but if I pass away today, I know that America is in good hands with President Trump.

    You each had something different to say to me about my pain, and each of your statements brought great comfort in its own unique way. All bases are now covered, time to move forward. Thank you all so much for you compassion. Love you guys.

    Just heard obama denied secret service to do security updates in oval while he was there. So trump won’t get to use the oval for awhile. Will work out of executive building instead. Pretty lame. It’s all about obama. So no photo ops for awhile in the usual presidential office for trump.

    • kanaughty says:

      Personally, i think they should start doing them now. Obama loves being as far away from the oval as he can now that he is a lame in point, he’s off on another trip right now. when he comes back he will probably go golfing 5 more times.

    • Anthony says:

      He’s such a petulant little bitch. Does he realize that the entire world is watching him act like a spoiled 12 year old?

    • votermom says:

      That’s ok. Trump needs to fumigate the whole building first anyway.

    • DeniseVB says:

      So let Obama work out of the executive building for awhile. There’s plenty of time, the holidays will provide them with weeks of the Obamas being gone. Plus, doesn’t Prezzy Lameduck McGrudge have a DC mansion to move to ? Or is he waiting til noon on Jan 20 ?

      • elliesmom says:

        I wouldn’t be surprised if he leaves the moving vans with the Trump belongings waiting at the curb while he takes his time getting out.

        • Lulu says:

          No. The Trump’s should move in a month later. After the fumigation and the construction, ahead of schedule and under budget, is complete.

    • jeffhas says:

    barbara boxer introduces bill to abolish electroral college

    she knows better. she has been living off the taxpayer dime for years and has contributed nothing to the welfare of this country. she is a disgrace to her office

    • kanaughty says:

      Thank god repubs control congress and won’t give this the time of day. Repubs know it’s the death of their party nationally if they signed onto this so that only california and new york ever decides our president.

      • kanaughty says:

        Besides, it’s an amendment. She can’t just get rid of it with a bill. It has to pass at the state level in so many states to make a new amendment. That’s how it works. She’s stupid.

        • 49erDweet says:

          Well, yes. She is. But that’s not new. Everything, everywhere is always only about her. Just ask her.

          • kanaughty says:

            Plus it’s rich coming from a congress member from california where they can rack up the popular vote. They already get 55 EV’s isn’t that fair enough compared to states that get 4. The 55 EV’s make up for how big their population is compared to other states. Next census they will probably start adding illegals to the total to rack up even more EV’s for california.

    • Constance says:

      Good luck with that.

    it is going to a long two months. can’t we keep in flying around the world in the look at me , I am too sexy for my shirt tour, so he can not do too much damage to the country?

    another reason we do not need the ME with all their nonsense

    • lateblum says:

      I wondered when his support was going to cause questions and even some opposition. I suppose now that broncobama is not going to be around much longer (praise Jesus!), it is safer to question these questionable decisions and promises of support.

    During the summer my town had an Italian Street Festival which Schumer attended. He walked through the crowds for a while shaking hands. I was wearing my Trump hat and when he shook my hand he told me that he liked my hat. I answered with a little smirk – “Sure you do senator. Sure you do”.

    BTW he’s got very white, very soft and very mushy hands.


    Chuck Schumer Elected Senate Minority Leader

    Chuck Schumer, who has served New York in the Senate since 1999, was voted Senate minority leader for the Democratic Party Wednesday.

    DeBlasio out front of Trump Tower, listing all the things he just TOLD Trump. You would think he was the one who is President elect.

  36. taw46 says:

    He thought it was important that Trump hear what people think. He did. On November 8.

    • Somebody says:

      IDGAF what the mayor of NYC has to say. I’m surprised Trump bothered to meet with him, what an asshat. I hope Trump made it clear immigration laws will be enforced

      • taw46 says:

        Really? You are mayor, and you don’t care about business concerns, traffic problems that affect your citizens?

    Captain America hates the Electoral College.

    I called the Texas Democrats because they sent my parents an email saying we had to FIGHT RACISM. I asked them–a man–what they were going to do about Keith Ellison being the candidate of choice to lead the DNC. He asked me why that was a problem. I told him that Keith Ellison was a 30 year member of the Nation of Islam, a close friend of Louis Farrakhan (who by the way called Hillary HITLER 2 weeks ago) and has 1000’s of recorded instances of Anti-Semitism, Anti-American, Anti-White, Anti-Women shout outs, and thus was a BIG OLD RACIST. He put me on hold–sounding very scared. After about five minutes he came back and told me that Washington told the Texas Democrats to STAY OUT OF IT. I asked him what he thought about an avowed racist who had, in fact, stated on record that JEWS caused 911 and did so to make money on it and they did make money on it. He got quiet and said he was not aware of these issues. I told him that every single one of the employees in his office should know who is an OPEN and AVOWED racist if they are sending out emails warning us of the dangers of racism especially since this is who the Washington Democraps are selecting to head the DNC. His voice was actually shaking a bit when he told me he would do the research. UNBELIEVABLE. How can someone working for the TX DEMS not even know who Keith Ellison is? This is another glaring example of idiots running the game.
