    Where's my other l in Michelle..?? 

    Oh wel...lo...

    Soros voting machine conflict...with 13 days to go, what will they do about it? I don't like the fact they're in PA.

    I can fully understand Trumps concern and accusations. It's been happening for a long time with the media.

    They clearly do not want him in there..but it's up to each individual and not a company or newspaper to have

    a preference. The New York Times outright embracing Hillary just about says it all. Gone are the days of a fair

    and unbiased media.

      Black people are voting for Hillary!

      And lots of the poorly educated say they are voting for Trump. Remember when Trump told his Florida supporters, "Go register, make sure you go out and vote Nov. 28."

            Talking about rigged machines... ABC has an investigation on tonite at 11PM about Pennsylvania's voting machines...

          Ty Dee!! That should be interesting. I wonder just how they'll handle this...it is entirely possible with all that's

          at stake for a fix.

          I think people just count on things going as they should but when there is such a drive for the WH by so so many

          that want Hillary in there, you have to wonder what lengths they'll go to in order to make that happen.

          Pence's place slid off the runway in NY..he's ok.

            Weird I thought we were talking about RL standing guard duty preventing ISIS from stealing your Trump bumper sticker.

            "But yet you still think she is the best person to be president?"

            A third of the Republicans are saying they won't vote for Trump and it looks like Trump won't even win in Utah. It's more like, why don't those people want Trump making opinions about Clinton being the best person irrelevant.

            "Just an observation, but has anyone else noticed that Hillary hasn't been wearing an American flag pin on the front of her clothes like other presidential candidates have done."

            I saw those pins on their suit lapels too. Do you expect her to dress like a man?

            Better hide your Hillary stickers and lawn signs, ISIS doesn't like women.

            I like to see a president show a little patriotism. If she can't wear her own country's flag, then who's flag would she wear?   

            I haven't seen her in a skirt or dress lately, have you?

                It will probably be something like this.

                The rumors about problems with the machines are unfounded, don't believe them.

                Security has been put in place... to prevent tampering.

                Don't worry about double checking your votes. The machines cannot be rigged.

                Remember, Al Gore won the popular vote over Bush by 3 million and still lost the election. Don't let that happen this year.

                Gore a Democrat, protested and took it all the way to the Supreme court. But Hillary and the media want Trump to just accept the results if he loses a close election. What a bunch of hypocrites!!!

                  When did wearing the American pin on the lapel signify one's patriotism? Isn't being SOS sufficient enough?  When one political party shuts down the government because they can't get their way, is that lack of patriotism, after all,  the country should be run smoothly without hiccups? . Which begs the question: Have the Democrats ever shut down the governmen? Just asking. .

                    The white people are voting for Trump.  They want jobs!  See his rallies?

                    "They want jobs!"

                    They want good paying jobs, but Trump said he will not even raise the minimum wage. But because he is Billionaire lots of those people think Trump will give them high paying jobs at his resorts.

                    "See his rallies?"

                    Are the rallies large because of the people who want jobs?

                    I've been to a few rallies over time and the size of the crowd depended on the size of the venue. A high school gym, a couple thousand, and NFL or large college stadium several thousand.

                      Letter from President Obama to US Government employees affected by the shutdown in 2013

                      In U.S. politics, a government shutdown is the process the Executive Branch must enter into when the Congress creates a "funding gap" by choosing not to or failing to pass legislation funding government operations and agencies, or, after the Congress passes a bill to fund the government and sends it to the President, the President vetoes that bill. If interim or full-year appropriations are not enacted into law, the United States Constitution and the Antideficiency Act require the federal government begins a "shutdown" of the affected activities. If the funding gap lasts long enough that shutdown plans must be enacted, the law requires the furlough of non-essential personnel and curtailment of agency activities and services. Programs that are funded by laws other than annual appropriations acts (like Social Security) also may be affected by a funding gap, if program execution relies on activities that receive annually appropriated funding.[1] Although the term government shutdown usually refers to what occurs at the federal level, shutdowns have also occurred at the state/territorial and local levels of government.

                      During Gerald Ford's presidency, one funding gap occurred, lasting 10 days. Under the Carter administrations, funding gaps caused 5 partial shutdowns that affected only the departments of Labor and Health, Education, and Welfare. These lasted from 8 to 18 days and the primary issue of dispute was federal funding for abortion. During the Reagan administration, there were funding gaps with technical shutdowns lasting less than 48 hours or over weekends while spending measures were negotiated rendering them to be of negligible effect. A funding gap during the George H. W. Bush administration also caused a weekend shutdown, resolved late the following Monday.[2]

                      During the Clinton administration, there were two full government shutdowns during 1995 and 1996 lasting 5 and 21 days respectively, both the longest and most severe to that date. These shutdowns led to massive furloughs and significant disruption. The primary issue was the United States budget deficit.

                      During Barack Obama's presidency, the United States federal government shutdown of 2013 ran from October 1 to 16, 2013. The primary issue of dispute between the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and the Democratic Senate was the Republicans' desire to delay or defund the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), signed into law in 2010.[3] A bill to end the shutdown and fund federal agencies through January 15, 2014, passed the Senate and the House and was signed into law on October 17, 2013.[4] Standard & Poor's, the financial ratings agency, stated on October 16 that the shutdown "to date has taken $24 billion out of the economy," and "shaved at least 0.6 percent off annualized fourth-quarter 2013 GDP growth."[5]

                          Better hide your Hillary stickers and lawn signs, ISIS doesn't like women.

                          I like to see a president show a little patriotism. If she can't wear her own country's flag, then who's flag would she wear?   

                          I haven't seen her in a skirt or dress lately, have you?

                          "I like to see a president show a little patriotism."

                          But how does that translate into having a President that has a great working relationship with Congress so the business of the people will get done? Will wearing a lapel pin convince Paul Ryan to tell his people to do whatever the President wants?

                          "If she can't wear her own country's flag, then who's flag would she wear?"

                          Sounds like you never wore a suit jacket; there is a hole in the lapel for pins. I've heard lots of reason why some people are not patriotic, but saying a woman not having a flag pin somewhere on their blouse is not patriotic is about as silly as not wearing one on a pajama top while you they sleep.

                          "I haven't seen her in a skirt or dress lately, have you?"

                          Sounds like you don't know what a suit jacket lapel is. Hint: it's not on legs.

                            It will probably be something like this.

                            The rumors about problems with the machines are unfounded, don't believe them.

                            Security has been put in place... to prevent tampering.

                            Don't worry about double checking your votes. The machines cannot be rigged.

                            Remember, Al Gore won the popular vote over Bush by 3 million and still lost the election. Don't let that happen this year.

                            Gore a Democrat, protested and took it all the way to the Supreme court. But Hillary and the media want Trump to just accept the results if he loses a close election. What a bunch of hypocrites!!!

                            US Flag Trump 2016

                            I'm not understanding the logic behind claiming rigged voting because Republican control the majority of the counties in the U.S.

                            "Gore a Democrat, protested and took it all the way to the Supreme court."

                            Does Federal Court cases like "Bush v Palm Beach County Canvassing Board" or "Bush v Gore" sound like Gore was doing the protesting? 

                            Seriously, I understand political passion, by why are you misleading people by distorting the facts?

                            "if he loses a close election."

                            What's your definition of a close election?
