Trump is #2 in GOP Field - Page 31

I like Trump for two reasons. First, he has made immigration the key issue. Currently, 147 Hispanics are born every hour, whereas six "non-Hispanic whites" are born every hour. That means that the U.S. is going to look more like Venezuela and less like the U.S. by 2043. Fragmented languages, divided races, "punishing your enemies," all fighting for a good feeding spot on the corpse. Let's put Che Guevera on the $20.00 bill. Yay. Trump has blown through the uncodified Thoughtcrime statutes with impunity. That is a good thing.

Second, Trump is sending a message to Government, Inc., the cozy pro-wrestling façade--the D.C. / Wall Street "establishment"--that uses the vast resources pumped into Washington DC for personal gain. Hillary Clinton is public enemy number one.

You can dismiss Trump as an idiotic goon, but that is mere catharsis. Trump's candidacy has meaning and impact, but he is useful only up to a certain point. He will soon outlive his usefulness.

I am not worried about immigration for two reasons. First, we need immigration, our fertility rate is only ~1.5 right now, which is below replacement rate. We're going to have an even bigger entitlement problem then we already have because there won't be any young people to pay the FICA taxes. Second, I'm going to guess immigration is naturally going to slow anyway.

I would modify that a bit. The GOP has a fetish for "outsiders." Look who's at the top right now - Trump and Carson and Fiorinia is rising. Every election they get all fired up about someone like this and then wind up with someone like McCain or Romney.

Tell that to Europe.

As an example, the population of Yemen:

 I have to admit that I even enjoy the way he has of tweaking the noses of the status quo, but its those who actually see Trump in the oval office that worry me. These guys are not in on the joke .This country has been limping along with piss poor leadership for quite sometime now and reducing the election of the POTUS to another episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians isn't helping

Germany is slowly shrinking. Italy is stagnate. Both also have rapidly aging populations. I'm not saying there is going to be a huge drop in population: it could easily be 20 years before we see a big change.

Don't bother.

The educated and evolved Britons wrote me off as a crackpot in 2002 when I predicted beheadings in the UK and the sound of evening prayers echoing through the streets of London.

Guardian took down their talkboards, but I'm sure the NSA can access those posts. Wait, was that paranoid too?

My record of predicting events has thus far been spotless; leaving me in the unenviable position of saying "I told you so" while watching Western Civilization commit suicide by its own trembling hand.

Laugh or cry. Laugh or cry.

Nobody is saying anything about Hillary . This country is in dire need of solving some serious issues and this shitshow is a distraction . America is a nation of immigrants this will always be an issue . There are prices to be paid for the freedom we enjoy and all the paranoid rhetoric and racist scapegoating in the world isn't going to change that

How about reducing the $5 quadrillion debt? (Cue commercial with Republicans throwing old lady over a cliff in a wheelchair).





As far as racist and paranoid rhetoric, here are some gems:

"Punish your enemies."

"Lipstick on a pig."

And so it begins.

Donald Trump is getting slammed from all sides for disparaging comments about Carly Fiorina's appearance, with his GOP rivals once again calling on the Republican presidential front-runner to end the "personal attacks."

At the same time, Republican candidates are stepping up their own attacks. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal used a National Press Club speech Thursday to ridicule Trump's candidacy, warning the party is in danger of nominating a "non-serious, unstable, substance-free candidate."

As the criticism mounts over his bid and his behavior, Trump's standing in the polls is holding steady. One recent national poll shows his support topping 30 percent for the first time.

Yet the Fiorina remarks have put Trump on defense, at least for now.

Trump made the comments about the former HP exec in a Rolling Stone article. "Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president," Trump told the magazine. "I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not s'posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"

Asked about his comments on Thursday, Trump told Fox News he probably made them but claimed: "I'm talking about persona, I'm not talking about look."


He also said he was speaking "in a jocular manner, obviously."

"They're all assholes, so elect the biggest one" is a horrible way to elect a leader.

Where has Harvey Birdman been?

Could he have left SF to become a Trump speech writer?
