For fun I have bet a euro on Donald Trump. The payout was better.

    When Trump's plan called for a  "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on.

    Jeb Bush tweeted, "Donald Trump is unhinged. His "policy" proposals are not serious."

    And Lindsey Graham added Trump "has gone from making absurd comments to being downright dangerous with his bombastic rhetoric." and "He’s putting at risk the lives of interpreters, American supporters, diplomats, & the troops in the region by making these bigoted comments"

    I've heard that Trump has a plan to find and deport 11 million illegals, build a very high wall on the Mexico/US border, and make Mexico pay for it, but never saw the exact details of how it could be done. Trump want to lower our tax burden while increasing the size of our military so he can "take out" ISIS, ISIL, and maybe North Korea and Iran.

    I'm sure he has excellent plans on how to do his magic act and his LP supporters probably have all the real details and will share them with you.

    I guess facts are hard to find...

      I don't blame ya, esp. if the odds were good.

      One word of advice:  don't ever bet on the Cowboys, even if you're getting points.  I lost a whole pay check on Super Bowl XIII, taking Dallas + 3.  I'm glad I had a charge acct. at both the grocery store and gas station.

        You called me a liar when I quoted Trump and obviously ignored the video link where Trump said it.

        You don't even know what "the pot calling the kettle black" means and probably your reason for arguing facts and the juvenile name calling.

        Hey Stack...What do you think it means?  I make perfect sense, you don't.

          Jethro where are you?  Waiting for a reply.  Newsflash... Newly released emails though FOIA requests prove Hillary is guilty of pay-for-play.  Hillary Clinton via Clinton Foundation accepted money for political favors.  How do you feel about Russia getting 20% of United States uranium reserves so Bill Clinton can make half a million dollars a speech for several speeches?

            The media isn't reporting it. Their only agenda is to keep bashing Trump.

                Did you hear about big fire in the townhouse in DC? It was owned by a Democrat, Socialist, and a Republican. Only the Republican survived the fire! Why? Because she was AT WORK.

                  What are the first three letters in NEWs? We already know that she's a power hungry and money hungry selfish person, and a guy climbing Trump Towers is certainly new and interesting.

                    Don't You Know Better Than Betting On Romo In Crunch Time?

                    Is It December Already?

                        This Is A Yearly Problem.

                        Roger Staubach was the Dallas QB of SB XIII. Tony Romo wasn't even born yet.   Romo has more 4th quarter comebacks than any other QB since 2006, although he's only one of 11 men on the field.  He also has the highest passer rating in December, but yet again, he's just one of eleven.  Of course "sooner or later he will not be able to play".  Duh.  You don't know who their backup is?  It's either Prescott or Showers, although some analysts think Dallas will make a move after training camp cuts, pick up someone on the waiver wire and not have to give up a draft pick and/or a player in a trade.  I don't see it happening, but....Yearly problem?  It was a problem LAST year, that's it.  It's a problem most other teams have when they lose their starting QB.

                        Seriously, you need to stick to giving your opinion on sports you "might" know something about, like curling or ice hockey...or tiddlywinks.

                        You also need to work on when to use capital letters.

                            "Always"? His collarbone injury last year (they rushed him back too soon from the first injury) caused him to miss most of the season, as did the same type of injury in 2010 which caused him to miss most of the season.  Other than those, he hasn't missed all that many games, all things considered AND other QB's injuries considered.  I don't have time to go look at the stats, but I think Romo has been more durable than Roethlisberger (although I could be wrong) in total games missed and if percentages are taken into consideration, more durable than RGIII, Michael Vick, Sam Bradford, Jake Locker and a few others that I can't remember off the top of my head.

                            I'm well aware of their lack of playoff success.  I'm still a fan, though and have been for over a half-century.   You don't sound like much of a fan, just another bandwagon whiner.

                              I checked the story again on CNN it's quite lengthy. They have the retail value of the suction cups listed at $280+
                              each. They must be bored with the current news items, they couldn't wait to go into great detail on this one.

                              Nothing more about Hillary than what she and Trump would do for their parents...What?
