What l truly want to know is this: What happens to the Republican party if Trump loses & goes back to his business& golfing given that he destroyed all the other political candidates that the republican voters rejected?  Who do they see rising from the ashes?

    I have just one thing to say to all the Trump supporters out there..In fact the Rolling Stones sang it " You can't always get what you want. "  Trump was over the moon when Comey announced that the agency was looking into more emails dealing with her server. Trump said his " confidence has been restored" in the FBI.Now that Comey has said " No smoke here folks" suddenly his advisor Newt Gingrich is saying Comey was under tremendous pressure to say what he had to say " For goodness sake people,  the game does not always end the way you want it too." You win some,  you lose some. Just get used to losing this time.

    Btw - l wanted Anton Chigurh to buy the farm so bad, but it didn't happen- we all get used to disappointment at times.

    If wishes were horses- beggars would ride.

    The American people will lose, Obamacare is crushing those who can least afford it and the middle class will struggle with higher insurance, higher taxes, stagnant pay.

    Think about, I mean really think, what do you get rid of first just to make ends meet? if millions are getting rid of the same extras, that will hurt some kind of commerce. People lose jobs.

    With no extra money, people will run up credit cards, not for furs and jewels, but for food and home repairs, nothing worse then needing a roof, or furnace when you have no money.

    Have you seen the cost of food?

    We need jobs, we need job creators, if the middle class folds.....

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

      With all due respect to your post Sully.America is NOT electing a Dictator, If Hillary is elected,  she is  going to have to go through Congress to get things passed. Let's lay off the Gloom & Doom as though we will see soup kitchens on every street corner. I wish the best for America. You cannot seriously be thinking that all the people voting for her are all idiots? Let's get real here.Or are you saying Trump supporters are Smarter?  I read today that a Trump win will send the stock market plunging to new depths &  America into a recession like one we have never seen before,  and this is coming from economists. Are they idiots as well?

          LOL.

          Mike, don't give them any ideas!

          OK, but I suspect they've dredged up as much mud as they can.  Ya never know, though. 

          I voted Friday; there were a bunch of folks there, but I didn't have to wait because most didn't take long and I reckon they were voting a straight ticket.  Not me, though - I never have done that.  I hope the Libertarian candidates for judge and Railroad Commission appreciated it.  I also didn't vote for any incumbents in local races except for one;  a friend is the tax collector/assessor and she's doing a good job.  She looks a lot like Lee Ann Womack.

          Hope you set your bombs clocks back one hour last night.

               Before we talk about getting rid of something, we  have to have something much better to replace it with. And that is what exactly? Unlike getting rid of a President, we at least have the VP to step up into those big shoes. What do you see out there right now that can take the place of Obamacare? What happens to folks who are already on the program,  where are they going to get help during the Obamacare dismantling period- see what I mean?  We need to think clearly,  lives are at stake here. Perhaps some " surgery" could be done to the present program where just about everyone agrees on what a health care system should look like.  Rising costs are unavailable,  we just need costs that even the poor can afford- right?

                                                                            Stairway to Heaven

                 

                There's a lady that's sure.

                All that glitters is gold.

                And she's buying the stairway to heaven.

                When she gets there she knows.

                If the stores are all closed

                With a word she can get what she came for.

                 

                There's a sign on the wall

                But she wants to be sure

                Cause you know sometimes words have to meanings.

                In a tree by a brook

                There's a songbird that sings

                Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.

                 

                There's a feeling I get

                When I look to the west

                And my spirit is crying for leaving

                In my thoughts I have seen

                Rings of smoke through the trees

                When the voices of those who stand looking.

                 

                And she's buying the starway to Heaven.

                 

                And it's whispered that soon

                if we all call the tune

                Well the piper will lead us to reason

                and a new day will dawn

                for those who stand long

                and the forests will echo with laughter

                and she's buying the stairway to Heaven

                 

                ooh, it makes me wonder

                ooh, it really , makes me wonder.

                 

                If there's a bustle in your hedgerow

                Don't be alarmed now

                it's just a spring clean for the May Queen

                Yes, there are two paths you can go by

                But, in the long run

                There's still time to change the road you're on

                and it makes me wonder.

                 

                Your head is humming and it won't go

                In case you don't know

                The piper is calling you to join him.

                Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow?

                And did you know

                Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

                 

                And as we wind on down the road

                Our shadows taller than our soul

                There walks a lady we all know

                who shines white light and wants to show

                How everything still turns to gold

                and if you listen very hard

                the tune will come to you at last

                when all are one, and one is all

                To be a rock and not to roll

                 

                And she's buying the Stairway to Heaven

                                                                               Jimmy Page and Robert Plant.

                Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

                For a lead role in a cage?

                        The beastie Boys huh?

                        Was just kidding Sully with the above remark. Did get a chuckle from the court case earlier this year..

                        The third day of the high-stakes copyright trial played out in a downtown federal courtroom as Francis Malofiy, the attorney representing the estate of singer Randy Wolfe, continued to try to build a case that Page and Zeppelin singer Robert Plant lifted parts of Wolfe’s song “Taurus” for the famous acoustic opening of “Stairway.”

                        Page sparred for two hours with Malofiy, a carry-over from Wednesday when the lawyer called the 72-year-old, white-haired rock star to the stand. In sometimes sharp exchanges, Malofiy tried, largely in vain, to extract incriminating concessions from Page.

                        Trying to sidestep repeated objections from Zeppelin’s attorneys and increasingly impatient admonitions from U.S. District Judge R. Gary Klausner for out-of-bounds questions, Malofiy delved into the minutiae of the musical composition of “Stairway” in an effort to show similarities to Spirit’s 1968 instrumental “Taurus.” 

                        “Yeah, that’s what I’m saying,” Page responded brusquely, when Malofiy asked with a clear note of sarcasm whether it was true Page couldn’t estimate the tempo of “Stairway.”

                        Klausner thwarted much of the inquiry because Page was not designated as a musical expert in the case and so was not permitted to give his opinion on the structure of either song.

                        The judge also shut down repeated attempts by Malofiy to introduce elements of “Taurus” included in recordings of the song.

                        People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.
