Hmmmm... on one hand I think 'OK' - as he even speaks the language of Muck, but on the other hand... I don't think we should inflict his level of moronicity of the islanders!!!

I don't dispute you heard that once, but it was an extremely isolated incident.

One thing you're right about, Trump is a response to the liberal BS and PC crap the left has been pushing for the past decade.

Had the democrats run anyone but Hillary/Warren/Sanders, Trump would have lost, faded away and become nothing more than a footnote in Republican history.
Trump hasn't one iota of Christian virtue... he is an opportunist, he knows how to tap into religious fervor and other divisive issues. Forget Trump... he is only an opportunist for a short segment of time.... the longer term issues of the American divide are anti intellectualism, compassion quotient, multiculturalism, globalization, decline of religion, regional economics, and corporate and personal greed.

Obtained legitimately. One such example is if you were attacked by an enemy, you won the war, and now have say over Territory seized.

And then along came an outsider who understood better than the party itself how to appeal to the angry mob they had created. The outsider saw that he could turn the mob against any party members who opposed him. Itís kind of like Dr Frankenstein who lost control of his own creation. I donít know where the GOP goes next, but it is clear that the R base is all-in with people like Trump and Gomer.
In my reading today, I came across this today. Mike Sommers was Speaker John Boehner's chief of staff and after Boehner quit... Sommers sized up Boehners term as speaker by saying, "We fed the beast that ate us."

Strange as it may seem, raptors (which includes vultures, which includes condors) prefer dead meat/fish which doesn't fight back or try to escape. Even Bald Eagles prefer dead fish as easy catch floating on the water. Week/s-old dead animals lay in raptor nests which the hatchlings slowly devour (or each other so that the biggest and most aggressive survive). And vultures will kill when hungry enough: last century a drought saw the vultures killing and eating cows in Florida.

These creatures have very strong digestive systems, minimal sense of smell and instead go by visual clues like color.

For over a century, War is a racket. These days it's pretty hard to justify this anymore.
