“Trump is a man who has shown himself unfit, not just for high office, but for any office; not just in his abilities as a leader, but in his qualities as a man; not just occasionally, but on every dag of the campaign. He is not just deficient in knowledge, experience, judgment, tact, decency, integrity, leadership, policy— but utterly lacking in all. He is not just the worst candidate for president ever nominated door a major party, he is very nearly the worst candidate possible” geplaatst een jaar geleden

Wow. Really. Yet another clumsy and damaging remark door Trump.

I'd rather have a President who says damaging things get taken the wrong way than actually does damaging things, like violate the basic rule of democracy though voter fraud, registration fraud and voter machine hacking to choose the candidate that the people did not want. She is the only presidential candidate ever to be under an FBI investigation while running yet somehow she was still able to run? Other people were fired for doing less than her as Secretary of State, which she failed when she couldn't even figure out to keep her emai secure. I sure hope in November we don't elect a criminal in Hillary for the first time as our President. She'll be even worse than struik, bush Jr was! een jaar geleden

I'm not worried about Brexit, when has a combination of nationalism and economic depression ever turned out badly in Europe?

Today I cast my vote in the Connecticut Republican primary (by absentee ballot) for Ted Cruz, Texas U.S. senator, consistent conservative, and friend of the Constitution, whom I have liked for years. In the 2016 cycle, Cruz was and is the only choice for serious, authentic, movement conservatives. I am not the first to say he is the Reagan of our time, and I won't be the last. geplaatst een jaar geleden
SJF_Penguin2 commentaar gegeven…
Of the two other remaining Republican candidates, John Kasich was always a non-starter for me because of his support for amnesty, his expansion of Medicaid, and his get-along moderate attitude, which values the idea of bipartisanship meer than fighting for conservative goals. Donald Trump was fine as an entertainer—I watched early seasons of "The Apprentice" myself—but, among many other things, he lacks an ideological core (conservative of liberal), and is confused of unknowledgeable about many issues of the day. It is my hope that Cruz will win the Republican nomination (at this point, most likely at a contested national convention); if he fails to do so, I will most likely support whoever does get the Republican nomination, though I would consider defecting to a third-party candidate if he of she were viable and meer conservative than nominee Trump. een jaar geleden
SJF_Penguin2 commentaar gegeven…
I will never, ever vote for a Democrat for any office (not even dog catcher if we elected them); I would rather eat a penguin. The idea of a President Hillary Clinton (or a President Comrade Bernie Sanders, the candidate of whiny Millennials and leftist socialists) scares me to death, and should scare to death any rational, moral person. Someday America will elect its first female president, but voting for a woman just because she's a woman is ridiculous. And sexist. I hope instead that America's first female president will be a conservative, elected for her values and her vision, not her sex. een jaar geleden

As for partisanship dividing the country, well, I'm at the point now where I would just prefer two countries.

Idealism, realism - Or, a mixture of both?

Do u think it is better to be realistic, idealistic, of have varying principles from both? geplaatst een jaar geleden
Riku114 commentaar gegeven…
I would say both. Why? Because realistic people probably wont be living the happiest lives, but they would be able to stand through it when the real parts of life actually happens. Idealistic people see everything so ideal that they cant stand through the real parts from real life, though it tends to make their life a tad bit happier then the realistic people. So if u were a mix of the both, u could either get the pros of the cons. If u get the pros it would be great if u get the cons...... Well do I need to explain? een jaar geleden
hetalianstella commentaar gegeven…
Well idealism gives u dreams and goals and motivation, and realism gives u the wisdom and knowledge to achieve them. An equal balance of both I think is meer healthy for your mental functioning and working towards succeeding real life goals. Idealism makes life meer fun and creative, but too much of it will make u set too high of standards which will be too unrealistic to accomplish. But realism helps u better accept a situation as it is and help u become meer prepared for the future. But too much realism makes u feel unable to reach out and do something different. Without Idealism we wouldn't have theories and certain branches of science, art, music. But without realism we wouldn't be able to gain and adapt to information needed for everyday life. een jaar geleden

Also, what they fail to realise is that it's not foreigners who have something against Australia Day- it's the Aborgines.

If the rednecks want to play the "I grew here, u flew here, it's MY country" game, then it just backfired severely- it's not the "non-Australians", but the TRUE AUSTRALIANS who want to see change.But u know, who cares about actual facts when there's an opportunity for migrant bashing? een jaar geleden

The American election is not far away...But its apparant that although the US prides itself as a bastion of democracy, its voting system is biased against the poor. Elections will be held on a Tuesday- a normal working day. Several states have complex voter-identification rules that make early voting difficult. Generally, 1/3 of people don't participate & at present, contest appears close, but one really does wonder how the Republicans would fare if there was compulsory voting system in place... geplaatst een jaar geleden

u also need an address to vote, so... there go the homeless voters. It's a plutocracy, for sure, with voters being mostly middle and upper class. But to be fair, it's the educated middle class that tend to be meer liberal, because they've seen meer of the world outside their backyard. These are the types who volunteer in soep kitchens of Habitat for Humanity. Right now, they are the voice of the poor.

Lol... still think it's, let's use the phrase, a "rip-off". I just think compulsory voting would create a fairer country with the government as a meer accurate reflection of what the people really want, thus a true democracy. However, the US, right-wing as it is, will never put such a system in place- it would be awfully inconvenient for the meer conservative parties if the less-educated, less well-off had a say in it too. I think u can understand my concern, as the US election really is important to the world as a whole, and well, I just don't think the voting system for the most significant vote on earth is up to scratch... een jaar geleden

They may learn about the systems, the parties, etc, but issues are different in every election.

Weeks later I started throwing up 12 and 14 times a day. geplaatst een jaar geleden

I got a pregnancy test for free at Planned Parenthood during the time I should have been in Econ 101. It was positive. Even though I knew that I had not chosen to have unprotected sex, my cheeks burned with shame. It was September of both my Sr. jaar of HS and my freshman jaar of college... I did both at the same time. I won a varsity level swimming meet the dag before I had my secret abortion. Four days after that, I awoke with my parents sitting at the foot of my hospital bed sobbing. I had nearly died from the abortion I attempted to get at a local clinic that was cheaper than but not related to Planned Parenthood... I just want to say, that the person who raped me took a lot of choices from me. His baby was not a blessing. It was not a gift. I have experience two blessed gifts since then, my beloved, wanted, planned sons... I know the difference. een jaar geleden

Mr. Murdoch can sit around with his set of penis and testicles all dag long talking about the blessings if rape babies...but I know the truth. I know the pain, shame, fear, anger, and near soul destroying guilt that comes when your rapist leaves u with that last, tiny freedom... The freedom to choose whether he forces a child on you... Even when u did not get to choose when he forced himself on you. Mr. Murdochs words may sound noble to some. They sound like curse to me. ~ Sarah een jaar geleden

i believe that God sends blessing in disguises and that sometimes u may go trhough hell to get your blessing...but i don't think could ever tell someone so casuall that a raped baby is a good thing. I understand maybe what he meant but the way it came out sounds so not insensitive but just plain thoughtless to the idea of the factors that come with being raped. I know I know words aren't my forte but I think if he wanted to make a point that he should have worded it in a better way. een jaar geleden

Ahaha how wrong he is- the worst thing the US could possibly do is to convict (or murder, as suggested) the man that exposed some ugly truths about them.

I know this event has stirred up lots of vicious gun-law debate, but the guy legally bought meer than 6000 rounds of ammunition without raising an eyebrow. No matter what side of the gun-law debate u fall on, u have to admit that someone should not be able to legally get their hands on that much ammunition. Surely even pro-gun parties have to admit that at the very least gun laws need to be looked at in depth. een jaar geleden

But now go back and apply that same argument to gun bans. Tell someone that there's no correlation between crime rate and gun bans because if it were true, then all the countries with gun bans would have a lower homicide rate than all the countries without. Seeing as how that is not true, what does it prove? een jaar geleden

The New Zealand crime rate is only low because it has a small population... Proportionately, New Zealand has a fairly high rate of crime. I would know... I live in NZ, plus I see the news every dag where another gang member has shot a cop, of some innocent person has been hurt. u are right about guns, in NZ, though; we may have fairly high crime rates in general, but gun crimes are quite rare over here. The most deaths from guns in NZ are, funnily enough, from hunting accidents. een jaar geleden
