Winfield and members of his Winfield Brigade have been on the ground in Mexico City following the devastating earthquake that struck parts of Mexico.



The former Governor of the Northeast can be seen lower left in the black cap and white shirt, moving debris in order to rescue and save the lives of victims of the earthquake.

When asked by the press why he is risking his life to save the lives of those in a foreign country Governor Winfield responded

"When it comes to saving human life, to me, there is no such thing as a national border."

In that case, perhaps we should  go to a system of Co-Presidents, so we can support more than one at the same time.

You mean to tell me this pseudo journalistic backwater rag is still in operation?

No offence of course.

I am offended that you would you would use the same insult twice. Be more creative pls. I would suggest calling us the "epitome of fraudulent 'reporting'" next time.

As for the oakvale story, it turns out our source may have been a bit exaggerative. Good thing we didn't like run an entire smear story.

Yankee's most recent post above was also fantastic. He could write for the Questioner if he wasn't an icky lying swamp creature. ; )

But it was so good I had to use it at least twice.

No offence of course.

83  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Which President defined their decade the most since the 1950s on: September 20, 2017, 08:48:52 pm
Eisenhower, Reagan and Clinton had the most public support of the listed options. You can say they defined their decades.

Nixon and Bush were very polarizing. Large swathes of the public hated them from the beginning to the end.

Nixon had quite decent approval ratings (in the 60% range) until Watergate started unfolding.

His 1968 margin of victory wasn't that great compared ti Eisenhower/Reagan/Clinton's landslide wins.

True, but there's a middle ground here.  He wasn't overwhelming popular like those three were, but he was reasonably popular with the general populace until 1973.   Also, his '68 margin was respectable (in a complex three-way race), and while it wasn't as large as those of Eisenhower/Reagan/Clinton, neither was it a squeaker like Carter's or both of Bush 43's.

And of course, his '72 margin was rather impressive. Smiley  If large swathes of the population had hated him at that time, that margin wouldn't happened, despite McGovern's weakness as a candidate.

Yes, the Nixon win in 1968 was respectable, and don't forget, his margin in the popular vote, though razor thin, translated into a very impressive win in the Electoral College, 301 to 191 to 46.

1960s Nixon definitely.  He epitomized the 60s.

How so?  Nixon was President for less than one year in the 1960s.

IMO the answer would be Reagan.

Nixon was one of the most famous and influential people throughout the 60's, in or out of office.

He never quit running for President between 1960 and 1968.

His run for California governor was just practice, then?

When Nixon ran for Governor in 1962, he promised not to run for President in 1964.

But he still never quit planning for his comeback to run for President in 1968.  

And I should clarify, Nixon epitomized the late 60s and early 70s.

Well done to Iran calling this what it is.

What?  Are you kidding me?  Iran IS living in medieval times.

Trump threatened to commit genocide against the people of North Korea.
Now, THIS, surely, is the moment when he became president in ernest.

But in reality, strikes would be targeted at the North Korean leadership, military, and munitions.

Well, I really must apologize to all the wimp Obama fanatics here, apologize for the fact that your hero Obama didn't have the guts to stand to up bloodthirsty tyrants and take action years ago against these inhuman regimes.

It is because of wimp Obama that the United States and the rest of the world find themselves now facing a real threat from some maniacal dictator with his hands on nuclear controls.

It is because of wimp Obama that the world has been pushed to the brink, and Trump is now trying to straighten out the horrendous mess left by Obama.

Excuse me. This NK mess went far back as Bush W.
Tell us with your blue avatar and Deplorable attitude, what you believe about with "wimp" Bush.

The fact that previous Presidents before Obama did not take control of the situation is no reason for Obamas failure to act.  He was the most recent of Presidents who failed to act, and the situation was deteriorating under Obama.

The Trump speech was spot on, hit a bulls eye, said what no previous President had the guts to say.

Pinpointed evil regimes in the world who torture and kill innocent people.

The Evil triumvirate has been unmasked.

Good for Trump.

About time somebody said it.

If your signature is a slap at Trump, you know what, that is a donkey on the desk, not an elephant.

Hate to burst your bubble but Democrats have Cory Booker and Kamala Harris while Republicans have Tim Scott.

Democrats have 66% of total black senators.

Edit: I cant believe no one has realized that by now.
Strictly speaking, Kamala Harris is half black.
And Strictly speaking, so is Barack Obama. Try this as an experiment. Ask 1000 Black people whether they consider Barack Obama black or not, then come here and post the results.

I realize Barack Obama is half black.

Kamala Harris is half Tamil and half black.

Therefore, she could just as well be called the first Tamil Senator. (that I am aware of)

An observation

In spite of the fact that Democrats receive 90% of the black vote while Republicans receive 10% of the black vote

Both Republicans and Democrats have 50% of the black Senators

Just sayin'

Obviously Himmler's case is well known. He believed he'll convince the Americans they need SS to hold Europe after the war and thus he'll be in perfect position to take over during peacetime. At least, when this illusion fell apart, Himmler came to realize he's screwed and took the easy way out.

Goering believed that due to his status as designated heir, as well as the fact he wasn't officially involved with "those SS swines", he'll be the one taking over with the allies' approval, or, at the very least, will be treated with honors. Didn't work out.

Speer was certain he'll be asked by the allies to help out during reconstruction of Germany and that might be a reason he sabotaged Hitler's scorched earth policy.

But the funniest example was Kaltenbrunner planning to set up and lead a postwar government in Austria.

Like all murderous thugs, these arch criminals reaped what they sewed.

Uh, excuse me, but the last time I checked, there is something called biological reproduction.

If you kill all men, as in your platform, how do you propose to perpetuate the human species in Atlasia?

Sperm banks, love.

But you are not looking ahead.  Eventually, your supply will run out, as there will be no more men.

The human species as we know it will disappear in Atlasia in a generation, unless you plan to import men from other countries and other parts of the world.
