I rate you in the "Stupidity gone to seed category."  I would deem a slug more intelligent.

 

Is that another one of those records you misplaced, can't find, or really doesn't exist?

No I watched her lie on TV.

 

I can show you where Clinton said "half the Trump supporters "belong in the basket of deplorable". Some of your remarks are very silly and you can't or won't validate other remarks, but IMO, you're not deplorable. Why do you think you are?

Call one and you call them all.  First tell me this, how many of the half has she ever met? I guess she uses some kind of esp

to get that figure.   

 

Yep a woman President! Are you saying women aren't qualified to be Commander-in-chief?

Nope! just Hilda in this case.  I would love to see a woman as president.

 

For the record, Islam began in the 6th century C.E., about two hundred years after Jerome compiled the Vulgate. However, it's your prerogative how you choose to interpret the Bible.

I get my information from what's called the old testament. Nothing important concerning eschatology in revelations can't be found

in the old testament.   Muslim as I relate to is a geographical term and denotes a people not a religion. 

 

Some Biblical scholars say the Book of Revelations is about the Roman Empire and Nero played the fiddle while Rome burned.

Some but not all of the book of revelation is past tense.

    I thought you said you are a "disabled veteran"?

    Thanks for volunteering, but I'll sleep better knowing our real military is defending us.

     

    What an insult to a veteran. Especially a disabled one. You owe the man an apology.

      RL,

      Anyone who talks of people cowering i bunkers was no doubt a REMF (Rear echelon MF)

      The grunts were in the rice paddies and triple canopy jungle getting rocketed and mortared while the REMFS were making up war stories to write homer about.

      When I used to reply to Stack I guessed that 47 was his birth year then he said maybe it was his age when he joined LP. Pretty neat trick if he was 47 in 2006 and served in 'Nam. Just another lying liberal. I think his military service is a total fantasy. He said he's a lifetime member of the VFW (I'm lifetime DAV) and now he says he went to 'Nam when he had nine months left....it was a 13 month (usually 12 if you were lucky) tour and the Army didn't usually send people with less than 13 months left.

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        I guess you never heard of constitutional amendments or just getting the Supreme Court to rule on what these documents

        actually say.  Some bewildered idiots think the 2nd amendments right to bear arms does not include personal gun rights.  I

        know, it's kind of stupid that a working brain would interpret it that way but that's why the election is more about the Supreme

        Court than anything else.  Hilda is on record that she wants all our guns, not just the big ones but all of them.  I know your

        kind of slow so maybe this will help you understand.   Do you trust lying crooked Hilda to hold to the constitution in her evil

        plan.  GW said it was just a piece of paper and Hilda thinks even less of it because it stands in her way.  I still say that anyone

        who does not like it should move to another country where it's not the rule of law. I swore a oath to defend the Constitution

        against all enemies both foreign and domestic and I plan to keep that oath. 

        RL

        "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

        The National Guard has a constitutional right to carry firearms, people do not. I don't think we should completely ban it, but severe regulations are needed on such destructive weapons. 

        "I still say that anyone who does not like it should move to another country where it's not the rule of law"

        Dop you also hold the same view towards the Republican members of Congress who actively try to ban abortions or defund Obamacare despite both being laws in this country?

          I saw on the news last night that the price for obamacare is going up 25% in January. So much for cheap, affordable insurance.

          "Heritage did put forward the idea of an individual mandate, though it predated HillaryCare by several years. We know this because we were there: In 1988-90, we were employed at Heritage as a public relations associate (a junior writer and editor), and we wrote at least one press release for a publication touting Heritage’s plan for comprehensive legislation to provide universal “quality, affordable health care.” As a junior publicist, we weren’t being paid for our personal opinions. But we are now, so you will be the first to know that when we worked at Heritage, we hated the Heritage plan, especially the individual mandate. “Universal health care” was neither already established nor inevitable, and we thought the foundation had made a serious philosophical and strategic error in accepting rather than disputing the left-liberal notion that the provision of “quality, affordable health care” to everyone was a proper role of government. As to the mandate, we remember reading about it and thinking: “I thought we were supposed to be for freedom.” The plan was introduced in a 1989 book, “A National Health System for America” by Stuart Butler and Edmund Haislmaier. We seem to have mislaid our copy, and we couldn’t find it online, but we did track down a 1990 Backgrounder and a 1991 lecture by Butler that outline the plan. One of its two major planks, the equalization of tax treatment for individually purchased and employer-provided health insurance, seemed sensible and unobjectionable, at least in principle."

            He is.

            Presidents like to issue "Executive Orders".

            Don't like guns? Try a couple executive orders.

            Of course, there will be liberal judges to appoint to the Supreme Court.

            Hillbag gets in, things ain't getting better if you like freedom. No matter what the naysayers believe.

            "Article II, section 1 of the U.S. Constitution reads, in part, "The executive power shall be vested in a president of the United States of America." And, Article II, section 3 asserts that, "The President shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed..." Since the Constitution does not specifically define executive power, critics of executive orders argue that these two passages do not imply constitutional authority. But, Presidents of the United States since George Washington have argued that they do and have used them accordingly."

            "In extreme cases, Congress may pass a law that alters an executive order, and they can be declared unconstitutional and vacated by the Supreme Court."

            http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/thepresidentandcabinet/a/Presidential-Executive-Orders.htm

            Executive Orders are LITERALLY in the Constitution and aren't some mystical supreme power that is above checks and balances.. A change in the Constitution can only happen through an amendment, which won't happen for the foreseeable future.

              The electoral college follows the voters wishes from their respective districts.

              http://archive.fairvote.org/?page=967

              No. Some states require electors to vote according to the popular vote winner, but not all. I have no doubt in my mind though that Bill Clinton would vote for Clinton or Donald Trump Jr would vote for Trump if either wins NY (yes both of them are NY electors for their respective partiesso one of them will in all likelihood be casting an electoral votr come December)

              Also lottery sidenote, one of the Democratic electors from Tennessee is a former Powerball winner named Roy rum

                You could tell me something that only someone who served with you would know, I have connections with many

                veterans and I am sure one of them served during the same time you claim.  Maybe a commanders name, maybe

                the name of someone killed etc..  Nothing to give away who you are but that can be confirmed.

                 

                My last duty assignment was at TFB OK. My CO was Col Preston J. Daniels, He was nicknamed Can do Daniels.

                Our motto was "Lead, follow or get the hell out of the way"  You will have to find someone from that time to know

                what his nickname was.  I don't think it's published anywhere.

                RL

                "You could tell me something that only someone who served with you would know,"

                And that would mean nothing unless you know the person I served with. Years ago, I read in the paper where someone I served with was running for mayor and he asked me to verify his rank and his Vietnam service because they thought he was lying.

                "My last duty assignment was at TFB OK. My CO was Col Preston J. Daniels,"

                Daniels retired from there in 1982, nine years after our military involvement in Vietnam ended. Daniels was stationed at Nha Trang Air Base in Vietnam but oddly spelled it Natrang in his bio. Were you in Nam with him?

                "Nothing to give away who you are but that can be confirmed."

                I was in with the first brigade, first infantry division at Quan Loi. The brigade commander "Devil 6" was tanker.

                  Is that email public record that we can all see or should we just take your word she said it in a deleted email?

                  Guess you have never heard about the leaked emails.  I am sure you don't believe they are real so until you do

                  then why would you even ask. 

                   

                  Been around lots of other vets and never heard any of them mentioning the Oath of Enlistment much less "withdrawing" it? But I've heard of recruits retracting an Enlistment.

                  So I guess you don't consider the oath you took important?

                   

                  I was drafted and sent to Vietnam my last nine months. I know I served regardless what you believe.

                  I will have to take your word for that.

                   

                  I questioned if you were disabled while in the service because your job didn't sound like you were wounded in action. And than I said something about how anybody can say they were a General; we're anonymous posters on a message board.

                  I am rated service connected 30%.  You sound a little like Trump.  I guess something as meaningless as lets say a aircraft explosion 

                  or maybe being exposed to hazardous materials or getting a heavy object dropped on a person would not count as a real injury.  How

                  many bullets did you take?  I knew a guy that was shot in the head with a BB gun as a prank and thought he should be awarded a

                  purple heart. True story.   Many Air force personal are exposed to the same dangers in peace time as war time because the job is the

                  same.   I had a buddy that lost both legs in peace time doing his job.  They were crushed by a gun turret.  Maybe that don't count 

                  either.   

                   

                  Does he believe our military is in the terrible condition Trump says it is?

                  He is not one to complain, you would have to ask him.

                          You got a Lil off topic- you think? You need to focus on answering one question & one only, why? Because it's as you said,  you go off topic but I am not that surprised because being a disciple of Trump,  his mastered the art of going off topic within seconds. Some habits are hard to break,  but you do have the potential to break free...After the election. I will light a candle for you. You can thank me later. 

                          Going way off topic is getting to be the norm for lots of these Trump supporters. RL said he reads Clinton's deleted emails.

                              None of your arguments hold water.

                               

                              Two issues here, "A well regulated militia" and  "the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed"

                              If this statement only means militias have the right then why add the word "people" in the latter part.  Why not say that

                              it is unlawful to denied militias.  The reason is because part is to the state and the second is to the people. If it's as you\

                              say then why was the peoples guns not taken at that time.  People hunted for food and needed guns to protect themselves

                              from any number of things.  Wild animals, unfriendly people  etc...

                               

                              First I am not a republican and I think that the government has no business getting involved in abortions, for or against. 

                               

                              Obama care is maybe the worst law ever made but I do pay for it.  Laws can and are changed all the time.  I could not

                              be happier to see Obama care go.

                               

                              New laws come and go all the time. There use to be laws concerning sodomy, maybe we should bring that one back,

                              after all it was a law.  I don't think the Gays would think to highly of that one.

                              they are not.  Many great discoveries come while searching for something else
