You know Don the Con is not merely a racist bully and a cruel man

He's fucking mean - his entire Foundation is an unregistered fraud. He makes Scrooge look generous.
How does someone aspiring for the top position in a country cheat the government for decades.

Don the Con is a taker on heroin.

Just heard that over 700 folks from the Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay

will be moved to Florida.

Yep - GITMO may take a direct lick.
The US will move 700 employees and their families from its Guantanamo Bay naval base Sunday as Hurricane Matthew inched toward Jamaica, Haiti and Cuba.
Military planes will airlift people from the base in Cuba to various locations in Florida, including Miami, Pensacola and Jacksonville. Family pets will join the mandatory evacuations, base officials said.

Those getting evacuated are mostly nonessential personnel; there no plans to evacuate the 61 prisoners detained at the facility that holds terror suspects.
"Remaining personnel and their families will be taking shelter in their homes or designated locations," base officials said in a statement.

Seven things about Don the Con's supporters -delish!


Tell me you are conservative. Tell me you are Christian. Tell me you are Republican. Tell me any of these things, and I won't make too many assumptions about you. Sure, I may assume you go to church every Sunday, eat red meat, and get most of your news from Fox and Friends, but beyond that, I will withhold judgment on the kind of person you are until I get to know you. In fact, as a Southern white male veteran who lives in a very rural area, most of the people in my circles are of the right-leaning variety. I can attest that most people are fairly decent when you get to know them.

This equation changes when you tell me unequivocally that you are voting for Trump. Instantly, I know there are certain things about you and your character that I can assume that I wouldn't if you told me you supported any other GOP candidate. Ainít none of them good.

Tell me you are a strong Trump supporter, then you are telling me:

1. You want to be ruled, not governed.

The single trait that predicts the Trump supporter has nothing to do with race, income, or education. A researcher at the University of Massachusetts found that the top predictor of whether a voter supports Trump is his or her proclivity towards authoritarianism.

Authoritarians obey. They rally to and follow strong leaders. And they respond aggressively to outsiders, especially when they feel threatened. From pledging to ďmake America great againĒ by building a wall on the border to promising to close mosques and ban Muslims from visiting the United States, Trump is playing directly to authoritarian inclinations.

So spare me your lectures about market freedoms or any constitutional rights you claim to hold dear. You want a dictator in the style of Putin, which pretty much makes you anti-American.

2. You have no class.

Seriously. You donít. Iím sorry. I tried to revisit this one several times but I donít know how to sugar-coat it.

It is NOT OKAY that Trump mocked a disabled person. If Hillary did that, it would be a deal-breaker for me. I'd go third-party, or write in my own name. I have standards. You apparently don't. Some people try to justify this by saying Trump didn't really do it. Except he really did, and it was awful.

Tracking Matthew folks - what if he does not turn North

and continues WNW - what then?

He is still going West (add)

Who's watching Rachel

Bwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! The Channel 13 in Michigan reporter has me howling. Love how she asked him how he felt about USA Today saying he's unfit to lead

He fugging lied again - he's leading in the polls. one more lie
