lol! that's what happened! LOL...and if she wants them resent, she better get them before Oct 1st...the Chinese or

Russians might get it after that..or they might just wind up as censored information and get deleted or filed somewhere.

 

5 AG's file suit against transfer of internet control to ICANN...Texas AG said trusting authoritarian regimes to insure the 

freedom of the internet is lunacy. And the suit states that handing over government property is against the US Constitution

and that the president has no right to do it without Congressional approval..An internet law professor said Russia or China 

could wind up managing fbi.gov or army.mil...also said losing control of our web domains puts the nations security at risk.

Ted Cruz, yeah that one...said that Obama administrative actions are dangerous and indefensible. FCC commissioner said

handing over control to ICANN should worry anyone who cherishes free expression and free speech rights. 

 

Obama did it again and Hillary will continue the destruction of this nation.

I don't blame Obummer. I blame the idiots that voted for him because we all knew what he's about.

Now we have idiots that want to vote for the SAME THING AGAIN!!!???

INSANITY.

    bigbear29,

    Trump e-mailed his tax returns to Hillary. They must have mysteriously got 'deleted'.

      Trump, release those taxes so bigbear will shut up.  I think the only thing he wants to hide is how little he had

      to pay.  As long as he followed the tax laws I don't care if he got back millions even if he paid nothing in.  He has

      said he has been under tax audits for 15 years.  Seems to me that if he had broke the law the IRS would be all

      over it.   Trump may not pay personal taxes but don't forget that he pays millions in employer taxes.  If bigbear

      won a big jackpot I think he would shelter every cent without taking a risk investing it in something that would

      make things better for many.   Why don't more people start a business?  It's because they don't have the balls.

      Let me ask you this, if you won a 100 million jackpot, would you leverage it to borrow another 200 million to start

      a company where you could put many to work.  My guess is no.  Lottery players want to win big so they can set

      back and  do nothing, nothing that is but buy more tickets hoping to win again.   Not putting anyone down here

      just putting things in contrast.  Little know, little expected.  Trump is a fighter in what he does and if he takes a

      cheap shot from time to time then that's OK with me.

        Yes, I will shut up if trump will release his taxes.  But we all know that trump will not release his taxes.

            I know it was from there;  I read the article, but my point was that the site is paying for supporters to push back, to be trolls and bear called B.S., so I proved it to him.

            Why is it necessary to call Bear stupid?  Have you even read his posts?  His most legible ones are C&P from websites...and biased ones at that.

            "my point was that the site is paying for supporters to push back"

            I understand why people with too much time on their hands rag on one candidate or the other on sites like this, but some of the people here actually believe their childish insults will convince people to change their votes. I know I waste lots of time discussing politics, but I try to stick to the facts. Right now the facts are Texas and KY will be red on election night regardless of who we vote for. 

            "Why is it necessary to call Bear stupid?  Have you even read his posts?"

            Bear is a rookie at this and is making rookie mistakes. One of these days they might ask if Clinton is such a bad candidate as the majority here is saying, why isn't Trump up by 20 points?

              Aw, everybody but you is an idiot because you are the smartest person in the World. How do you intellectual types reconcile supporting and voting for McCain in 2008 and now supporting Trump after he said John McCain and POWs are not war heroes?

                I had a uncle that was shot down 3 times in WWII and the last time he was captured by the SS and spent

                the rest of the war in a SS prison camp.  Near the end the SS forced marched them from camp to camp until

                one day he woke up and they had all fled during the night.  He never considered himself a Hero as he made

                it out alive.   I guess there are different levels of heroism.

                    ...but some of the people here actually believe their childish insults will convince people to change their votes

                    Not me.  I know there's no changing his mind.  Some might say it's a character fault, but in the case of someone like bear, I enjoy pointing out how incredibly ignorant they are and what's worse, how much of a partisan hack they happen to be.  It's akin to pulling wings off of flies, which would make me cruel (mea culpa!) but the analogy is reinforced when you consider what flies are attracted to.

                    Bear is a rookie at this and is making rookie mistakes.

                    "Rookie" is generous and far-too-kind to him.  "Numbnuts" would be more fitting.

                    ...why isn't Trump up by 20 points?

                    Because as you well know, the country is pretty much divided in half.  I would turn that back around at you and ask if Trump is such a bad candidate, then why isn't he DOWN by 20 pts.?   There have only been a few in this thread defend Hillary and I don't know why that is.  It might be that any other supporters in here know they would have a hard time defending her.   I might be mistaken, but I don't recall ever defending Trump, but have been attacking Hillary...which as far as I can tell, only happens in message boards and forums such as this as well as in a few right-wing websites, but certainly not by the MSM.

                    Trump has his faults, some "Yuge" ones and has made some incredibly stupid statements.  He has no filter and while candor is usually refreshing, a politician needs to parse their words more carefully than he has.  He's obnoxiously brash and likes to play the bully.  I have problems with much of what he's said and how he's acted and some of the things he's done but I have the same problem with Hillary, only ten-fold.   It's as I said, this election, same as the last two, is the choice between the lesser of two evils.  Yes, even the lesser is still evil, but the greater evil is worse.   To me, Trump is like the guy arrested for drunkenly urinating in public, while Hillary is the person who drove the getaway car after a bank robbery.  The former is distasteful, but the latter is unforgivable.

                    I would vote Libertarian, but I think the weed has put too much tar in Johnson's brain and Stein?  Pffft, she's a joke.  So, it's either leave the box un-ticked or vote for Trump.  I was this >.< close to being a "No-Trumper" but again, I'm much more of an "Anybody But Hillary" person.  The only other viable "anybody" is the loudmouth.

                      Trump isn't perfect. Hilldog is most definitely not perfect. That is part of the problem in the country today. The media spends it's time looking for every teeny flaw for Hilldog and Trump, and people want the perfect candidate. There is no such thing. Candidates are people, and people are flawed. 

                      For me, the things Hilldog has done are unforgivable. Benghazi. Clinton Foundation. Stealing items from the White House when Bill was president. Just to name a few.

                      Again, if you want the same old same old, tired politician, doing the same things we've had for the last 8 years. Hilldog is it.

                      If you want a non-politician who doesn't have special interests, or anyone else for that matter in his pocket, who owes nothing to anybody to help him get elected, and will change the way politics is today, because he doesn't care about Repub or Dem, Trump is it. Warts and all.

                      He knows how to gets things done. He does not care if feelings are hurt. He just gets things done that need to be done, and if that means he has to be mean at times, so be it.

                          Blindly supporting Hillary, for the most part.  I'm voting for Trump, but at least I won't do so blindly and will admit his faults and things he's done.  Of course, it "helps", for lack of a better word, that I really dislike him.  That said, if you put his faults and transgressions on one end of a scale and Hillary's on the other end, hers would plummet to the bottom, breaking the scale.   She's crooked as a dog's hind leg;  Trump is just a snake oil salesman.  He's snarky, she's slimy.

                          For cryin' out loud, stop with the tax returns.  For what it's worth, I'd like to see them too.  You know what I'm thinking, though?  He's using them as a distraction, just like Obama did with the birth certificate controversy. The President could have released the copy of his BC, but let it be a long, drawn-out affair, letting his supporters attack anyone who had doubts and labeling them as nutters.  Just pick any other of Trump's issues and if you do it in a reasonable manner, then I'll leave you alone or at least try to rebut your point.  It's not easy for me to defend Trump but it's beyond me how anyone can defend Hillary.

                          People who sound like broken records annoy the hell outta me, just like that Aussie who kept harping on lottery anonymity.

                            MikeinTexas, excellent response and the comment about Trump/Taxes vs. Obama/Birth Certificate makes absolute sense to me. Let the media do the dirty work.  But then again I am a Conservative/Republican and a "deplorable" human being.

                              Blindly!  because I do not agree to your BULL!  trump has not admitted to anything he's done or said, he's a total idiot.  And he really should release his taxes, because trump is no different than any other candidate.  Trump whines about everything because trump is a sore loser.  Obama did not use his birth certificate as a distraction, that is total stupidity.  And what did trump do 5 years after seeing the birth certificate?  Trump kept the the BS going, so you are totally incorrect.  And I could care less if you keep this up or leave me alone.  And it's beyond me also how anyone could defend trump.  Oh and here's my broken record, trump should release his taxes.
