      I was just sitting here watching the vulture capitalist Romney attack Trump with far more passion than he did Obama in the last election.

      All that did for me was made me think about the differences between the two. Romney made his money by picking at the corpses of companies who went bankrupt by not being able to compete with China. Trump made his money by building businesses and giving folks jobs.

      In the last election Romney tried to play down the fact he was rich. Trump brags about his. I normally don’t like braggarts but in Trump’s case it don’t bother me a bit.

      I think Romney is going to try a third party run. I see no difference between him and the Hildebeast. If either get elected our jobs will still flow to Mexico and China.

    The Trump better learn fast that the only way he’ll get cooperation from the GOPe is to threaten to cut their pork.
    And then if the threats don’t work, cut it with a meat axe.

    • May 10, 2016 at 8:32 pm

      A Meat Axe? Perhaps a CHAIN SAW might be more apropos!

    • May 10, 2016 at 8:35 pm

      Start with slitting a few throats
      Just to encourage cooperation, of course…

    As far as I can throw them. Or Trump, for that matter.

    Trump really should nominate Cruz to the Supreme Court. Just for the fun of watching senatorial heads explode.
    Like shoving a lit M-80 down a snake’s throat.

    Not suggesting harm to any genuine snakes, though. Just the wannabes in DC.

    • May 10, 2016 at 10:26 pm

      Agreed… I think Trump could sell the publishing rights as a reality tv show…

      How does “Cruz and the Supremes” sound? “Cruising with Judge Cruz”?

      Love it. Cruz to the Supreme court. Would not be as much fun as hanging a dozen (equal numbers of) democratic and republican senators. And a slightly lower per cent of members of the (no longer the people’s) house.

      • May 11, 2016 at 7:45 am

        I dunno, get a monthly income from casinos, entitlements, free housing, and pay no taxes?
        Sounds like a sweet deal. I had to work for all my income, PAY taxes, buy my own house (pay more taxes), pay for healthcare, food, transportation, insurance, property maintenance, and if there is anything left over maybe some recreation (NOT at a casino). What part of their deal sucks, aside from having to whine about not living in the stone age and being dependent on the government teet?

        PaulS – Think about it. This is what they gave the losers after that long term running fight that they lost. They did lose, biggest of all, they lost their freedom. They want their freedom back too. I think of it as a fair warning. This is what those who want to make our choices for us want us to have. Only with less freedom and less material possessions.

      • May 11, 2016 at 2:04 pm

        Aboriginal Americans on the whole have been ruined as a people. They have been kept as caged pets on the gov teet as you say; some have prospered but most live desperate lives, and whether pampered or abused, all are caged.

        And like the rest of the dole dependents that the socialist/progressive system has produced, many now have no ability or even desire to escape its grasp. It is maybe the greatest American tragedy, yet it is being perpetuated and expanded as we speak. Why? Perpetuation of power and control for elites and politicos of every persuasion. We are at the beginning of the end times unless there is monumental or catastrophic change in the very near future.

      • May 11, 2016 at 11:02 pm

        Move twenty miles away from the casino and see how the rest of the tribe lives that don’t have a job at the casino. Some tribes are doing very well others are gradually dying off. Not all tribes get “free housing” and what are these entitlements that you speak of? There is no uniformity among them any more than you and I can buy the cars and trophy wives that the Donald can afford just because we are not Native American.

        To glibly group all of a particular nationality into one single group only broadcasts a lack of education as to the actual facts.

      • May 12, 2016 at 3:45 am

        Whites are the “native Americans”, U neo-con twits. There was no “America” until Whites hacked it out of a howling wilderness then populated by 400 savage Asiatic tribes, all running around naked, shooting arrows at each other, and living in holes in the ground covered with animal skins

    After walking out of that nest of vipers, I’d want to go straight to the hospital for 20 different inoculations.
    In dealing with any member of the FedGov Klown Kongress, I’d want to have a simple, straightforward, ironclad contract, consisting of words of one syllable or less. It would consist of three parts: what I promise to do; what they promise to do; and the gruesome punishment for NOT doing what they promised to do, said punishment to be enacted anywhere, at any time. Punishments such as. . . .. . well, I’ll let your imagination fill in that part.
    I have some in mind for our “beloved” spineless hands-across-the-aisle ancient fossil of our state’s senator, who’s been breaking promises since he was first elected 30+ years ago.
    “I’ll only serve one term”, he says. Yeah. Right.
    His original campaign slogan against his opponent was, “What do you call a senator who’s been in office 18 years? You call him home.” And he’s served twice that long. (Ptuy!)

  • May 10, 2016 at 11:00 pm

    Dude knows his way around contracts and performance clauses. He’s there to make some preliminary deals (letters of intent). I really think he will act in the best interest of his shareholders (that’s us), because he knows that the deal he has with us is the ultimate one, and we have some performance clauses of our own.

    • May 12, 2016 at 9:54 am

      Congress is not bound by the promises of previous Congressional sessions. That was decided long ago by the Supreme Court. E.g., if you think you have any legal right to your Social Security account, you’re the victim of a fraud – that the fraudsters can’t be hauled into court for.

      Just think about it: there’s no way under the law to hold those that make the law to a contract.

    Trump will make it clear to every GOP senator and representative in Washington, DC: “If you lie, resist the reform program, or otherwise cross me, I will end your career. I will recruit a better man to run against you in 2018 and will expose you by campaigning for him. You will lose. Asshole.”

    Fascinating. Trump has the agenda that the GOPe senators have been presenting to the public as their agenda.
    The vast majority of the people have similar agendas.
    There are some discrepancies.
    Getting the GOPe senators to do as they have said they would do has always been a problem. Witness the first desperate request of the people by the GOPE: We need the House. If only we had the House we could stand up to Obama and the Democrats. The House was won by the people. No change. Then the GOPe desperately pleaded: We need the Senate. Without the Senate we can’t stop Obama and the Democrats. The people gave them the Senate after hard fought battles in which the GOPe even fought against people with TEA Party, Libertarian, and conservative support, thus making it a difficult and longer battle. The GOPe did not want senators they could not control.
    Then the GOPe said that they could not stop Obama and the Democrats because of the great Obama and that they were too weak or whatever.
    They could have stopped Obama cold. Bill Clinton was stopped cold and had prosperity because the Congress forced him to agree to some, just some, logical bills concerning the nation.

    Anyone but Donald J Trump would not be representing the will of the people.
    The GOPe has not represented the people in quite a while.

    This was not a meeting of friends.
    Donald will be able to talk with them.
    Donald will be able to make demands within the boundaries of what is good for the USA should such time come that he meets with them as President.

    Donald Trump may not be perfect in many people’s eyes. yet, who he is, is perfect when considering all other current options, and, considering the rule of good enough to do the job Donald Trump is perfect.

    The GOPe senators have a decision to join, or to lose all.
