      Nerdy Wonka, I don’t understand how someone who claim to be a christian, could support someone like Donald J. Trump.

      • October 14, 2016 at 12:20 pm

        It comes down to their willingness to compromise their so-called values…and Pence, Falwell Jr, et.al, seem very willing. But it does make you wonder where “Do unto others…” and “Love thy neighbor…” fits into their brand of Christianity.

          I don’t know, I think the church defended the Nazis at one point, also aparteid in South Africa. When I say the church I mean some part of the state connected church at the time. Fascism.

        Pence’s and other “so – called” christians are what the new testament referred to as sheep in wolf’s clothing. These people use religion as a cover for their true beliefs and activities. It is by their actions that they are to be judged.

      Pence is a predator in his own right, women. I can say that because I live in one of the Koch satellite states where Pence consistantly works to remove women’s autonomy. If you asked him when no one was watching I am sure, yes I am sure, he believes woman must obey men, bible stuff, and also should never serve over a man. Fascist that he is misogyny is not his only failing.

    GM. I hope that Michelle Obama’s speech yesterday is the moral turning point for this campaign–the time when so-called “undecideds” look at themselves in the mirror and finally say, “Enough is enough!” regarding the odious GOP standard bearer. Not only did she destroy every atomic particle of the Republican candidate, she delivered the most compelling case for Hillary that anyone has ever made. From this day forward, I think her speech will be the standard by which all other persuasive speeches are measured.

      I agree and her husband is a close second. Did you watch the clip of him calling out the Republicans in Congress for their weak, vacillating behavior? Both of them are national treasures.

      Did he show their speeches on his show? I don’t watch from beginning to end but what I did watch (the Ben Carson smack down) I figured he would not show Mrs Obama’s part about this being “enough” nor PBO’s smack down on the GOP created this monster now wants credit that they’ve had enough of DT until it looks like they are losing the house & senate then they love DT again.

      • October 14, 2016 at 12:38 pm

        i did not see his show…just the tweet…i was curious if he said anything about FLOTUS’ speech….and that tweet is what i found

          Yes, he did have her speech on his show and said a lot of nice things about Mrs. Obama and how the speech was genuine and heartfelt. I went to MSNBC MJ website. He only had PBO speech where he said both FLOTUS and speech were great.

      The martyr complex is strong in this one. They have had a whole propaganda network working for them for years and its not enough to satisfy. If these ideologues, fascists, were to have more power they would do away with our democracy because it gets in the way of their fundamentalism and entitlement.

    President Obama TRASHES Donald Trump & GOP In Columbus, Oh. FULL Speech 10/13/16.

    President Obama got legitimately angry at Republicans suddenly dumping Donald Trump… He took a more mocking tone towards these Republicans earlier this week …: “They know better, a lot of these folks who ran, and they didn’t say anything, so they don’t get credit for, at the very last minute, when finally they guy that they nominated and they endorsed and they support is caught on tape saying things that no decent person would even think, much less say, much less brag about, much less brag about or joke about, much less act on, you can’t wait until that finally happens and then say, ‘Oh, that’s too much! That’s enough!’ and think that somehow you are showing any kind of leadership and deserve to be elected to the United States Senate!

    You don’t get points for that!” He said he’s “more forgiving of the people that actually believe it than the people who know better and stood silently by out of political expediency because it was politically convenient.”

    The president was amazed by how Republicans are standing by such a morally corrosive man when they’ve said for years they’re the party of “family values.” “I’m sorry, what happened?!” he cried. “It’s disappointing. It really is.”

    President Obama is making another campaign stop for Hillary Clinton in Columbus, Ohio. The president appears to be enjoying being on the campaign trail again, mocking Donald Trump and Republicans attempting to figure out how to handle him.

      “Some Retailers and Malls Plan to Close on Thanksgiving to Save Black Friday”

      Consumers have shopped more online and have spread out store visits over holiday weekend in recent years.

      It turns out that opening stores on Thanksgiving Day wasn’t just bad for family dinners. It was bad for business, too.

      A growing number of retailers and shopping malls are reversing course, including mall operator CBL & Associates Properties Inc., the Mall of America, electronics chain Hhgregg Inc. and Office Depot Inc., all of which said they would close on Thanksgiving this year.

      They say closing will allow employees to celebrate the holiday, but also help refocus sales on the day after Thanksgiving, known as Black Friday.

    If you think Donald Trump has problems, consider those of Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari. Elected last year as a no-nonsense candidate to clean up Africa’s biggest democracy, his popularity has fallen amid various spiraling crises — a faltering economy, a deadly insurgency, a devastating famine. And now, even his wife is skeptical.

    In an interview with the BBC’s Hausa language service, Nigerian first lady Aisha Buhari suggested that she might not back her husband’s potential reelection in 2019 if he didn’t shake up his government.

    Then came Buhari’s response. Speaking to reporters while on a trip to Germany, the Nigerian president offered up a tasteless jibe: “I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room,” he said.

    His remarks were made in front of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who according to reports, glared and then, briefly, laughed.
