Cruxie (and evidently all Republicans) are not capable of grasping the simplest of mathematical facts: when taxes are levied as a percentage of income, people with larger incomes will pay more than those with smaller incomes.

They also seem to think that very rich people should pay a lower percentage than the rest of us.

Debating the fairness of their cockamamie world-view is pointless ... they have no sense of fairness, and never will.

These guys make no sense whatsoever, but you have to admit that their idiocy carries some entertainment value.

Here's the latest somebody dug up on "The Donald."

Well, as I live and breathe, our Stonewall has finally come up for air. Welcome back oh mighty Stonewall, standing there again so tall.

Your temporary incompetence at running this Forum denied me a zillion chances to joke about politics.

But it didn't matter much. Republicans did a finer job of acting like clowns during the past few months than I could ever have done.

Mike Tyson

Postby Coondog » 2016 May 02 08:59

So.....Mike Tyson endorses Donald Trump. Trump has no problem with rapists from Brooklyn, as long as they don't sneak in from Mexico.

Ted Cruz calls Tyson a weakling and a coward. Ted is looking forward to attending a contested convention in Cleveland...... with only one ear.

Meanwhile, thanks to Stonewall, we now know that it takes about 4 months to get a facial tattoo removed.

Now that we know, let Congress do something about it.

on 3rd party candidates.

I'm interested in reactions among us forum users think about it, especially Fangz who I detect may have inclinations toward 3rd party participation?

PS. I voted for Bernie in the primary election. With a tinge of regret, I'm voting for Hillary as the next best thing on the scene with any chance of winning. She may lose a close election to Trump only because of Nader-type idealists. In my view, this would be an existential threat to American Democracy.

OK......I read the article and found it as guilt-trippy as willfully blind Clinton supporters. I'm not buying anybody's guilt trip, no matter how they wrap and adorn that package in a thinly veiled attempt to pass it off as something else.

That being said, here is where I stand at this point in time. Over the course of my lifetime, I've voted 3rd party more often than not. This election is ramming the choice of the 2 worst possible candidates (for the major parties) down the voters' throats.......replete with all of the fear-mongering and brow-beating they can scrape together. Add to that, the complicit corporate media, and we have a recipe that allows the oligarchs to retain control at the expense of the people.

The Wikileaks e-mail dump going into the Democratic convention laid bare the corruption inside the party for all to see. And we with a conscience and moral compass are supposed to fall in line and give that a pass...turn a blind eye and support it? That is great example of what is wrong the nation and our supposed 2 party system.

I would say I'm sorry but I'm not. I voted for Sanders in the primary and held out hope through the convention that the tide would turn. But the sickening display in Philly by the elite Democrats brought too many visions of The Stepford Wives to mind....and the corruption within the party was not only ignored, it was swept under the rug. The very poor attempt of the Democrats (once again aided by by an obedient press) to spin this as a Russian hack job on behalf of Trump was not only laughable, it was shameful. They really must believe that the voters are stupid.

I have to agree with a number of people that real change will not be possible within the current system or within the current Democratic and Republican parties. The change is going to have come from outside the entrenched corporate duopoly. Until people have the courage to vote their convictions and support candidates who have visions beyond the corporatocracy of the duopoly, this nation will continue its downward spiral.

That old axiom "Nero fiddled while Rome burned" reminds me of the DNC and the RNC and all who blindly follow their path. Rome will definitely burn to the ground if people are too damned afraid to vote for real change.

Catch a clue.......the change will not be found in either Clinton or Trump.

I haven't decided yet whether my vote will go Green or Libertarian. I still have some research to do there even though I am not unfamiliar with either Stein or Johnson. I want to review their current platforms in their entirety.

Interesting Poll

Postby Crux » 2016 Jul 31 09:12

https://twitter.com/wikileaks/status/758855786806190080

50%Donald Trump -Republican
22%Hillary Clinton -Dems
12%Gary Johnson -Libertarian
16%Jill Stein -Greens

This is a Twitter/Wikileaks poll of over 117,000.

We already know Independents will break for Trump. He is garnering marked support of far more blacks, Hispanics, Democrats, women, gays.
and Bernie voters that the media cares to acknowledge. Hold onto your hats, because the MO could swing big for Trump come election time.

Hillary is a disaster, and a lot of folks on the Left, and in the Center KNOW IT... :sail:

Interesting indeed. And frightening.

It may only be a nonscientific Twitter poll that carries little weight, since Twitter is mostly young people and young people have a notoriously poor voting record.

But also show Trump strength. Clinton and Trump are tied. And here's .

I am very worried. We have to do everything in our power to keep this evil fascist bully's hands off government.

Wise One.....

You have most lived a very colorful life, rich with interesting characters. I have great respect for your opinions even when I don't agree with them.

The quote about Trump being presented as a lunatic is credited to John Pilger, a true journalist whom I greatly admire.

I don't disagree that Trump is dangerous. However, Clinton is no less dangerous to the welfare of the nation and the world at large. She is just damn better at polishing lies and spinning webs of deceit.

The following read from Mr. Pilger is quite educational and eye-opening. A lot of what is contained was already known to me since I tend to seek out alternative media sources and pretty much take with a grain of salt what the American press has to say about anything of major importance. They have become the lap dog propagandists of the Beltway and the multinational corporations. They are doing nothing toward actually educating the public with facts which is the major responsibility of any journalist with a shred of integrity.
