Hillary = the same old thing for the last 30 years.  Not happy with that.  I'm voting for someone different.  The establishment (dems and repubs) hate Trump.  He has my vote.

Never give up.  Banana

    I love the Hillary tv ads where they ask Trump what sacrifices he has made.  What sacrifices has Hillary EVER made? Not counting human sacrifices of course...lol. Be very scared if Kaine is ever president. He is more of a socialist than Obama.

      Well, there was that time when her $12k+ Armani jacket was at the cleaners and she was almost forced to wear something off-the-rack, but the dry cleaning establishment was threatened with perpetual IRS audits, so they rushed it out.

      The horror.

        It doesn't get any more childish than that. And if a real war starts, will you send your children to fight and possibly die for "gestures"?

         

        Politicians don't send their kids to die in a war... If they do go, they sit in a safe risk free cushy role.

          But right now the Iranians are not only thinking we have a poosy in the White House but a lot of Americans want to put another one in.

          One of those boats stopped about 100 yards in front of one of our ships, making our ship change course. They're doing things like that and harassing our ships to see what our reaction will be. Testing us. 

          Maybe we should change the answers on the test.

          But you're right. We have a poosy in the White House. And a lot of Americans want to put a bigger poosy in the White House that left Americans to die in Benghazi.

              I agree, now they want to bring refugees into our country, feed them, house them, and give them health care, we have no idea who these people are, or how well they have been vetted.

              Sick of this BS, Do I think we will hear about crimes they commit? NO

              Do we know what diseases they carry? no

              Do we know if any are Islamic Jihadis? No

              Do any of them have any skills to contribute to Society? Don't have a clue.

              We can't bring the whole world here on a whim.

                moonos,

                You're right for the most part, but there are exceptions.

                In 1967 I was in the 82nd Airborne in an artillery unit and one of Agnew's nephews was in the same unit. He had been in the 173rd Airborne in 'Nam in an infantry unit.

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

                Lep

                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.

                    Trump was talking about shooting at the boats not nuking a country and probably starting WW III as Coin Toss suggested. Going to war believing a country has and will use weapons of mass destruction is one thing, but that old fool is saying "Nuke 'em 'til they glow then shoot 'em in the dark."

                      Airborne!

                      82nd Airborne Division Color Patch | Medals of America

                      All American - also known as the Jumpin' Junkies!

                      When I got there some of the units had just come back from the riots in Detroit. 

                      In the fall of 1967 the Army took all its Airborne troops with time enough left to go to 'Nam and sent all the short timers to Ft Bragg.

                      Once we got to the 101st they made most people grunts.

                      We were in a place called Cu Chi for all of 10 days and then going out the 'fifth wire' one day, there was our artillery unit from Bragg.

                        Off topic but this whole thread really is.

                        I went to Cambodia on holiday earlier this year and learnt a lot. The whole Vietnam USA war was just tragic.

                        I'm not blaming soldiers who went to war... Many didn't believe in it but were compelled. Others were just trying to do right for their country.

                        I'm really talking about the USA government's concern about communism and total disregard of Cambodia.

                         

                        Cambodia was an innocent country, it's so sad what happened to them.

                          The Australians were there too with a significant number of troops. (60,000)  They were there from the early days of U.S. involvement to the end of that involvement.

                          Many didn't believe in it but were compelled

                          2/3 of the U.S. troops who served in Vietnam volunteered.

                          I'm really talking about the USA government's concern about communism

                          If you're referencing the domino theory, that was accurate. The ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries, Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand stayed free of Communism because of the U.S. commitment to Vietnam. The Indonesians threw the Soviets out in 1966 because of America’s commitment in Vietnam. Without that commitment, Communism would have swept all the way to the Malacca Straits that is south of Singapore and of great strategic importance to the free world. If you ask people who live in these countries that won the war in Vietnam, they have a different opinion from the American news media. The Vietnam War was the turning point for Communism. (source)  That's an opinion from the referenced website, but it is true, proved by history.

                          Cambodia was an innocent country

                          Uh huh, right.  Everything that happened to them after the Vietnam War was directly due to the Khmer Rouge Communists...who, during the Vietnam War, aided the NVA and Viet Cong in the fight against the "Yankee Imperialists".   Of course, Cambodia and Vietnam fought each other for several years after the U.S. withdrawal.  Not long after that, China invaded Vietnam, but was forced to pull back because of stiff resistance, helped in a large part by the massive amount of weapons the U.S. had left the S. Vietnamese which were captured by the victorious NVA and Viet Cong....all in good shape, I might add:  "Never fired, dropped only once".

                          But yeah, in 20-20 hindsight, the U.S. should never have been involved over there, instead letting the Commies kill each other off.   Then again,  without American intervention in Southeast Asia, the Communists might have instead invaded Australia.  That'd been better, right?
