I agree it's a 'joke', but man.  Siding with a foreign country over hacking is pretty close to encouraging espionage.  Are we not sane here??


His whole campaign is just comical. I think in time his ego, quick talking & wittiness will just get the best of him.  Then again, I've said that since September.

How is he siding with another country? He says find, not hack. Could indicate he wants them to do it again, or it could indicate if they already got a big stack of emails they will find the Hillary ones. It's ambiguous, and with Trump should no longer come as a surprise. His statements are crafted like that to get attention, and get it he does.

Honestly, what presidential candidate even jokes about stuff like this?  And notice how most of the other smart (read:sane) Republicans are getting the fuck away from this ASAP.

This man is not presidential material.  No big US banks would lend him money.  He routinely stiffs over the little guy/working class.  There's a lot more out there that I didn't even mention.  Oh now he is claiming he doesn't know Putin that well.  What a joke he is.

And Hiliary was never charged by the DOJ so she didn't break the law.

GE polling is not the same as state polling. And, if the argument is being made that these states are on play, I'd like to see evidence of that.

Also for both candidates, I wouldn't pay too much attention to new polling numbers during the conventions. I'd imagine we'll get some bumps, then the smoke will clear.

Bingo.  Most of these polls right now are useless.  What you have to do is follow the money.  Clinton just made a multi state ad buy that didn't include Wisconsin or Colorado.  So clearly she is not worried about that state being in play.  The states that she bought ad time for were: Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Not to mention that some of the polls out there have sketchy methodologies anyway (undersampling and oversampling certain groups).

Joke or not, Loose lips sink ships. Is this the guy who is going to be privy to highly classified intel?

Trump isn't capable of not running his mouth. Knee Jerk is all he knows.

Not a US citizen but I am still surprised some folk here are basically saying

"Dear Other Sovereign Nuclear Power,

Please hack our government and steal classified information and use it to defame one our presidential candidates. If not hack at least go through everything you currently have and find some dirt and publish it.

Yours,
The American People + The Other Person Running for President"

Why would you advocate and welcome Russia:

1. Breaching your governments infrastructure
2. Stealing sensitive and classified information
3. Blatantly interfering in your countries political process

None of that sounds like a good idea, at all.

Acquiesce...you got me intrigued on this Jill Stein candidate. Haven't paid any attention to these independent candidates running. Mainly focused on Trump and even though I didn't support Sanders, I loved how he refused to be bought off.

Why are you supporting her specifically? Just as a protest vote or does it go much deeper?

Hi James. I may have been a bit unclear with my previous post. I am not personally supporting Jill Stein. Most of the Bernie supporters I follow on social media are supporting her, however.

Hillary is in bed with Putin while people think Trump is sucking his cock. What a wonderful world. Got a good laugh reading twitter feeds today.

That one guy had the nerve to say Putin is "afraid" of Hillary. Really?

HIllary did business with the "enemy". Guess we better lock her up for treason. Obviously I don't think its treason but I don't think this Trump issue is either.

Hillary is bought and paid for by every corporation from here to Timbuktu.....and she's in Russia's back pocket as well. But we have to pretend this isn't true because an outsider that the establishment hates is running.


TheMOle.....great post but its too lengthy for me to respond to it line by line at the moment. I'll get to it later. I do have one thing to say.....I am not someone who denies global warming is real. I read that again and it appeared I was mocking it due to stating other planets are heating up. I googled the debunkers and of course they say the opposite....the Sun is cooling down! I guess we no longer have to worry since its getting colder, not hotter.

It hasn't been debunked. Like many issues, there are differing opinions.

I also didn't know you were an astronomy buff. I know Bri is. Polluxlm to an extent. I should start posting more space news. The past couple years has been amazing on this subject.
