Yet with all that experience, you can’t smell the mountain of bull**** that constantly dribbles out of his orange pie hole.

Trump does nothing but gaslight his idiot cult followers and you eat it up, while screaming ‘fakenews’ and just don’t have a single solitary clue of how stupid it makes you look.

Yes well thank you for acknowledging my experience, you are correct, I do have a lot of experience but what does that experience mean? Experience at what? The truth?

We talk about hypocrisy, corruption, character, investigations, legislation, elections, statistics and a whole bunch of other horsesht. No one talks about doing what's right for our country, the citizens of our Republic and the legal guests and visitors. We seem to have lost that concept.

You don't realize it as you're just patronizing me but you're right I do have a lot of experience, a second nature, it's in my blood and after so many years you get real good at it. Trump is what he is. He got to where he is in life the way he did it and then chose to become the President of the United States as the final big accomplishment in his life and he did it. That gives him the power that he craves to make a mark, you talk about him being corrupt and committing crimes. Good God man the guy spent his own money, he's not here to steal or commit crimes, he wants to be president and he wants to do a good job. He likes the attention as if fuels him. He's a populist and a character. For fun sometime you may want to study each and every president of our country like I have. You would be amazed at some of the characters and what they accomplished using that character. Of course we had the simple Crooks too that just did it for the money and that ain't Donald Trump.

Now let's get real. You are right I have a nose for the news and the truth. There's so much going on in our government that is not shared or available to the General Public but it still goes on. Everything isn't what it appears to be.

It is the ultimate hypocrisy to hear people like you talk about Donald Trump's crimes but are you that stupid that you don't see the real crimes here? I do, it's staring me right in the face, it's actually been made public but not following up or pursued because it doesn't fit the narrative of the corrupt Press today and certainly could never be pursued by the powers to be, deep in our state.

You give me way too much credit my friend, I personally would never be able to investigate what I want to investigate. I would probably end up on the pile with all the other dead bodies. It has to be done by the highest levels in our government with the help of patriotic dedicated honest agents of law enforcement. It certainly is not going to happen in the legislative branch of corrupt ignorant bozos who are too busy stealing their own money.

Whatever you think Donald Trump is if he was actually given the formula in the way of a fair press and a professional legislature who is open-minded, intelligent and has the interest of its constituents so as to accomplish true bipartisanship, true leadership of this country then Great accomplishments could happen for the people of this country. Sounds good huh? Actually I wonder if that sounds good to you. You all think you're so smart but nothing you do would ever end up in that scenario.

As much of a character as he is he does have the ability to do what other presidents have not been able to do but unfortunately it's Against All Odds with no help from anybody who is put in place by the people to help him.

It's time for some of you guys to get your head out of your a** and realize the potential that we do have to accomplish good for our nation and the people who live in it, by God that's what they want and they're not getting it... but they know how they can and it's not by going socialist.

As fast Eddie Rendell said, for those who you don't know he's the former mayor of Philadelphia, the former Governor of Pennsylvania and the former head of the DNC. A good old-fashioned corrupt Democrat with his coat pockets stuffed with cash, who always got things done for the people... If the price was right, he said to this Congress when they were sworn in. Don't investigate, legislate or you're going to lose in 2020. Well, the Democrats are going to lose in 2020.

You have me at disadvantage since I can’t seem to cut and paste the CNN headline but I’ll try tomorrow on the PC.
So I guess you would want a baseball team if they got more hits then the opposing team to be the winner even if they got fewer runs.
I don’t want California and New York City deciding the presidency but rather the states.
The idea was crafted very carefully and it works.

You don't seem to have fully comprehended his analogy.

So the analogy of procedures and rules applies to the Obozo administration? The Iran money shipment and other things blow that premise right out of the water. His administration an his policies were bullcrap to the next level of buffoonery. Not only that but very corrupt and naive. The man didn't even know there were 50 states and said corpse men when reading from his teleprompter to say corpsmen. He's a flipping idiot to the highest order.

And oh how true that is. Many people don't even know basic history let alone the inner workings of their own damn government. Probably don't even know how many Senators there are.

Very well said Poltergeisty.
I also recall when Obama was first inaugurated, one of the first things he said to paraphrase that was there now 44 men who were president.
Yes he was the 44th president but only 43 men served as president.
The reason for that is that Grover Cleveland served 2 non consecutive
terms so he was the 20th and 22nd potus.
Easy error to make given the stress of the day but if Trump had said that the MSNBC and CNN crowd would have blasted him nonstop.
Let’s take the Trumpster out of the equation.
If Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, or any other of the 2016 canidates would have won,
as sure it’s cold at the South Pole they would have blasted and disrespected them as well as finding some stupid irrelevant crap on them .
Just look how they treated Reagan, HW Bush and W Bush.
Perhaps in different ways but just as nasty and vile.

The votes in the electoral college are more in proportion so the smaller states like North Dakota and Iowa have more of a say than a state with much higher population like California.
Each state has the same number of electoral votes as their congressional house members and that’s based of course on population.
Is that what you wanted to know or is California so screwed up that they don’t even bother following the constitutional rules now?

No. That seems to be optional for most Trump supporters. You must be experienced at something else.

You know, most stories I read in the newspapers, where I actually know the back story, are wrong to some degree or another. This observation goes back 40+ years. I long since came to the conclusion that the reason is because, in general, journalists are not familiar at all with the subject matter they're writing about. They may have degrees in Journalism, or English, or Literature, or something similar, but rarely in the subject they're writing about. So, they take notes, go back to the office, and write their article. And they get stuff wrong.

Trumpism now calls that "fake news". But Trump and his army of brain dead Trumptards are too stupid to understand what the problem really is.

The solution, for the intelligent public, is diversity in sources. Read more than one newspaper. Watch more than one news channel. See what everybody has to say, and the truth starts to rise up out of the noise. Right now, what rises up out of the noise is that Trump is a liar. Nothing he ever says adds up. And the ones screaming the loudest about fake news, ARE the fake news.

I'm really not too impressed by you journalists. I wouldn't be waving that flag around too much these days.

I'm quite aware of how it works. There are two houses of congress, and an act of legislation requires passage of both houses. The House of Representatives membership is based on population, the Senate is based on two Senators for each state. There's a check and balance system there that works well. With the Electoral College, the second half of the system that works well with Congress is missing.

Now, explain again to me why the voters of a more populous state should matter less than the voters of a low population state. I still don't agree.

Zz as insulting as you can be for you to compare me to a journalist of today is the ultimate insult. I'm retired on a pension but do some independent Contracting because of my reputation and experience. I am what you would call Old School. I was proud of what I did but I don't see how any journalists today can be proud of what they do.

Well I don’t understand why you ask the question if you already know the answer.
Ok ok.
Because each state actually holds its own election for potus.
CA. has more population hence more electoral votes.
But you already said you know that.
The sun rises in the east but I assume you know that as well.
The late Angry Grandpa loved to fart loudly too but I’m not sure if you knew that so would you like me to explain that too? :)

Your analogy is based in ignorance. Especially about "full throttle" in a plane. You do that and not only will you break company policy on their specific derate, but you'll add wear and tear to the engines not to mention you'll surpass the aircraft's top speed and bad things will happen.

So I guess with that you pretty much described the Obozo administration. Many people considered him like a high speed train or some other bullcrap, but I like your, "knows not how to fly for sht and breaks everything" plane analogy instead.
As usual you have either the reading comprehension of a Tse Tse Fly or you are a simpleton idiot who likes to intentionally misquote what I write.

I am now putting you on permanent IGNORE status. Goodbye Hipster Doofus.

The problem I object to is that, while the number of electoral votes are the same as House Representatives, all the electoral votes go to the winner, and are not apportioned proportionally. This allows for situations such as we saw, where a minority makes a decision for the minority.

Don't be an a**hole zz... I don't claim to have my 40 + year career, it's what I did for a living. I could care less if you believe me or not.
I'm not being an AH. I didn't say anything about your 40 year career. I said I observed how journalists always get something wrong over 40 years ago.

The cure is news diversity, not just one or two sources.

Why don't you try looking in the mirror for once. Then understand the damn fact you're a Canadian idiot living in a country with Canadian idiot polices
Better quality of life, longer life expectancy and I won’t go bankrupt if I get seriously ill die to medical bills.

Added benefit is we don’t have Donald Trump.


You first.
