1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Colin Powell not taking hillary's statements lightly- ups his attack on: August 22, 2016, 05:58:18 pm
As everyone should know by now, the Clintons will say anything, do anything, no matter who they have to destroy or run over, to get their way.

But they have hit a road block with Powell.

The Clintons are crooked.

Yes, because we can quit listening to those annoying Trump surrogates who are scared to death to tow anything but the Trump line, no matter how ridiculous or stupid it may be.

Of course not.

And his victory speech will be typical Trump.

Proposed amendment:

Quote
The Freedom to Drink Act
1. The National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984 is hereby repealed.
2. The federal minimum drinking age is now 18.
3. The regions shall each be allowed to each modify the minimum drinking age within the following range:
3a. No region shall be allowed to have a minimum drinking age lower than 16.
3b. No region shall be allowed to have a minimum drinking age higher than 21.
I don't believe section 3 is really necessary. You can't really subtract from federal laws, only add to them. Regions may still have higher minimum drinking ages, but they can't really have anything lower than 18.

I support this amendment.

A legal drinking age of 16 is ridiculous for reasons I have already mentioned.

21 would be a good age, but I do not believe this would gain support in the legislative branches.

Personally, I believe alcohol consumption should be banned completely, but the legislatures would not likely support that either.

The regions should not be permitted to set their own legal drinking ages.  They might do something stupid like setting the age in their region at 16.

Are you insane?

Minimum drinking age of 16?

What have you been drinking?

16 year olds are supposed to be working on finishing high school and graduating, going on to post secondary education, so they can make something useful out of their lives, not sitting in some sleazy dive getting sloshed out of their minds, turning into alcoholics, working at minimum wage jobs for the rest of their lives, falling into a gutter someplace, freezing to death or dying of alcohol poisoning.

What kind of question is this? You can't be serious. All scam adventures are detailed in full in the Update thread.

I'll take that as a no.

Has anyone on this forum ever attended Trump "U"?

If so, what was the result for you?

No.

She will be graceful in defeat, I am convinced of it.
9  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Should Clinton apologize for her e-mails? on: August 20, 2016, 10:33:19 pm
She should apologize and admit she is a crook.

Trump could read the New York City phone book at his rallies and get uncontrollable applause from his audience.
11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 20, 2016, 08:35:32 am
Now that Obama has finally accepted my advice to go to Louisiana,  Smiley  this controversial and informative thread will be locked.

Thank you all for your invaluable participation.
12  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 19, 2016, 09:26:48 pm
Winfield, you're not supporting Trump, are you?

Simfan, my friend, check my posting history and you will see some very anti Trump postings that I have been making for months.

I have made some very anti Hillary postings as well.

I just happen to believe, however, that Obama should have gotten off the golf course sooner and gone down to Louisiana.
13  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 19, 2016, 08:01:33 pm
So by your definition, someone who believes the President should show up personally at one of the most devastating disasters in U.S. history, and give comfort, encouragement and assurance to the victims, is playing the political hack card

THEN DEAL      ME      IN!      (to paraphrase Hillary)

(And I began this discussion a full day before the White House announced that Obama would be going to Louisiana)

14  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 19, 2016, 07:06:12 pm
Stop with the wild, ridiculous accusations.

The White House only announced that Obama would be going to Louisiana today, Friday, August 19, 2016, after Trump and Pence led the way. 

About time.

He is only going after Trump and Pence went there, and after much criticism online and in the press, and a full day after I started this topic on this forum.
15  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 19, 2016, 02:28:28 pm
The visit of the President should be much more than a photo op.

It is to let the people know, on a personal basis, that THEIR President is making sure that everything possible is being done for them.

A personal visit reassures people of that.
16  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 19, 2016, 01:57:55 pm
I believe with just two weeks to go before the 2012 election, that Obama, up for re-election by the way, conveniently found time to pay a personal visit to New Jersey during the devastating floods that struck New Jersey.

Yet since the 2016 election is not until November, and since he is not up for re-election, he can find no time to visit Louisiana.

I see a pattern developing here.  If it's politically expedient, he will visit during a disaster for a photo op.  If he sees no advantage in it for him, it goes on the back burner for a possible later visit.

And where is Hillary in all of this?  Probably back home erasing e-mails and transferring 600,000 dollars from the Clinton Foundation bank account to Chelsea.

Tut,  tut, now aren't we just a tad bit overboard with our comments?

20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 19, 2016, 11:20:41 am
CNN is reporting on the Trump Pence visit to Louisiana that someone, presumably a resident of Louisiana, said that Obama is too busy trying to bring his golf game up to par so he does not have the time to visit Louisiana.

This was reported by Ashleigh Banfield during her show on Friday.

I believe many residents of Louisiana feel this way.
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 19, 2016, 11:08:59 am

Winfield really doesn't care! he'll find any double standard available to convince himself voting for Trump is "the only alternative".

I am terribly sorry, but I really must correct you.

You clearly have never read anything I have said about Trump during the course of this campaign.  I have been very critical of Trump, not totally, but mostly, and have been enthusiastically advocating for his defeat.

So no, I do not view Trump as the only alternative.  In fact, I really do not see him as a good alternative at all.

22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 18, 2016, 11:20:38 pm
Oh my, my, aren't we testy today.

But that's pretty bad when Trump beats him to the punch.

So attack me with your juvenile accusations, your bitter vitriol, and your ridiculous sarcasm, I don't really care.



23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 18, 2016, 09:39:41 pm
Getting side tracked.

If you want to discuss Zika, start another thread.

This thread is to discuss Obama's refusal to even show his personal concern for the devastation and for the devastated people in Louisiana by paying a personal visit.

When Louisiana was hit by Hurricane Betsy in 1965, after talking with Louisiana Senator Russell  Long, President Lyndon Johnson paid a personal visit to Louisiana, assured them the federal government is doing everything possible, which the people of Louisiana greatly appreciated, because they knew that the President himself cared enough to pay them a personal visit, and the people felt reassured.

That's all they are asking for in 2016.

That is not too much to ask.  
24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 18, 2016, 11:54:27 am
It's bad PR for Obama, who appears as if he's "checked out"...

Aaannddd what is the Republican controlled Congress doing about a Supreme Court vacancy, Zika funding, authorizing war in Syria, and the flooding of Louisiana?  Oh, yeah, they are on a SEVEN WEEK VACATION!  Obama's fault!!!


The people of Louisiana need to see that there is leadership from the top being shown, which up until now has been glaringly absent.

And I am sure that the Louisiana Congressional delegation, all eight of them, have been doing all in their power to help as much as they could.

And quit making excuses for Obama's woeful lack of leadership in this crisis situation.
25  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 18, 2016, 11:23:30 am
They voted for McCain and Romney. Let those two handle the mess. Both of them have plenty of money.

So what you're really saying is that if a state votes for the other party's candidate, then you won't help them because they didn't vote for you.
