Coney Island's Steeplechase Man. Note the resemblance to HRC?


THE DEBATE


OUR VERDICT

Trump - Boisterous
Cruz - Clamorous
Rubio - Vociferous
Christie - Loqacious
Kasich - Articulate
Carson - Judicious 
Bush - Pretentious

One of two adults in the room. Who was the other?

What’s YOUR opinion?



See Saw from whore to whore.
Soon, we’ll be newly mastered,
But nothing’s ever going to change,
‘Cause each candidates is a bastard.

  1. I managed to watch most of the debate last night. Not boring! It was the best GOP debate of this crazy election cycle.

    As for evaluating the debate, I'll go along with this: It's Over for Jeb, Kasich, and Carson, and I rarely align this completely with The Weekly Standard.

    Each of the other candidates -- Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Christie -- certainly had powerful moments and projected the strong-man image, but Cruz not as strong as the others of the strong men. Rubio clearly has the best command of evidence to support his claims.

    A little factoid I gleaned last night in the post-debate coverage...During the debate, Hillary Clinton didn't get as many hits in the social media as did Bernie Sanders.

  2. FT said this about the debate at Always On Watch:


    "Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people."



    ~ Eleanor Roosevelt



    Yes, indeed, but she should have added, "Morons waste their time and that of every one around them sneering, jeering, insulting, and casting aspersions on everyone in sight while taking pot shots at each other."


    There was entirely too much BRAWLING and BAWLING last night, and nowhere near enough evidence of THOUGHT in the room.

    I found it depressing that the emphasis was largely on "PERSONALITIES" with very little attention paid to specific ideas about how we might first DEFINE and then SOLVE the deadly serious problems that lie before us.

    Loud, pushy, rhetoric and a lot of chest-thumping displays of too much testosterone are no help at all in making what-may-well-be the most MOMENTOUS decision of our lives.

    As far as I am concerned –– a this surprised me greatly –– Governor KASICH came out as the most serious, well-informed person on the stage with a list of sound qualifications a mile long to back him up.

    Dr, Carson appeared to be one of the sanest in the room, but he was nowhere near aggressive enough to have a meaningful impact on those rowdies.

    FOX's obvious AGENDA was to try to goad those men into battling EACH OTHER instead of dealing intelligently with the issues. I'd be willing to bet the farm that FOX is a slave to the GOP Establishment, and would love to break Donald Trump.

    Ted Cruz disappointed me. He's a brilliant, extremely informed, well-educated man, but he allowed himself to get drawn into a stupid shouting match with Trump –– a boisterous, petty, childish, vulgar display of temper that brought the proceedings down to the level of a barroom brawl.

    The shouting and vying for attention seemed adolescent and did nothing to enhance the image of the Republican Party.

    I thought it was the LEAST helpful yet in the entire series of Republican debates thus far.

    That is not to say he has the answers because he doesn't. Rather it says he is true to his principles. Which is something in my opinion is lacking in the GOP and to some extent in Democratic party as well.

    2. Well, Lisa, the desire of the Democrats to tyrannize us through ever-increasing government expenditure and more and more micro-management of every aspect of our lives is alive and all too well.

      They will tell us, of course, that everything they propose if "for your own good," but if we doubt that they call us all sorts of names, and then double down on pushing their policies through the legislature.

      I would never doubt their SINCERITY in all this, though, would you? §:^)

  12. What did you think of the role FOX Business Channel in the persons of Ms. Regan and Mr. Cavuto played in this last debate?

    Why do you think they deliberately avoided asking questions of Dr. Carson and Governor Kasich to the extent they did?

    Was there a hidden agenda behind that, or was it just a natural occurrence?

    Why did they appear to allow a loud, pointless, shockingly unruly dispute over the citizenship eligibility of Senators Cruz and and Rubio with Donald Trump take up so much valuable time?

    It irritated the hell out of me, because it took the focus away from things that really matter like growing chaos and brutal hostility in the Middle East, falsified employment statistics, bogus claims of increased prestige abroad and growing prosperity at home when NINETY-FOUR-MILLION have left the work force, use of FOOD STAMPS is at record highs, the cost of so-called higher education is OBSCENE, and the stock market has declined SIXTEEN-HUNDRED POINTS since the first of the year. That's more than TWELVE PERCENT.

    Rather than concentrate on imagined slights, the black community has to find a sense of responsibility for their continued failures. There is no family structure, there is no responsibility for improving their lot through education and hard work, their is an overriding sense of dependency which has been encouraged by the Democrats.

    I doubt any Intelligence Expert or Senior Military Leader would deny that with adequate resources ISIS can be defeated. Same for our borders - adequate resources & priorities can solve this issue too. But POOR LEADERSHIP can not be overcome with resources - the last eight years have proven this.

    The simple fact that a seventy-something year old communist who isn't even a member of the Democratic Party has surged ahead of her bodes ill for the Bitch of Benghazi.

  38. A Sanders presidency? Possible but unlikely. His democratic socialist (not communist) positions, while gaining in popularity are not accepted by the majority of the American electorate.

    America is simply not yet prepared to accept European style socialism; although social security and medicare are as socialist as socialist can be.

    Bernie Sanders is a firebrand and has certainly elevated some serious national issues, opening a national discussion on center stage.

    Bernie could very well be a present day George McGovern should he capture the democratic nomination. A scenario one would think the cons would welcome.

    But, a Trump, Cruz, or Rubio presidency (the three most likely to advance) would be an unmitigated disaster for the nation. Anger and hate becomes a cancer on the soul and best avoided at all costs.

  57. Regarding your "technical difficulties", I will offer this for your consideration since it is something that I came across recently.

    "For several years, Kaspersky Lab’s Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT) has been closely monitoring more than 60 advanced threat actors responsible for cyber-attacks worldwide. The team has seen nearly everything, with attacks becoming increasingly complex as more nation-states got involved and tried to arm themselves with the most advanced tools. However, only now Kaspersky Lab’s experts can confirm they have discovered a threat actor that surpasses anything known in terms of complexity and sophistication of techniques, and that has been active for almost two decades – The Equation Group.

    According to Kaspersky Lab researchers the group is unique almost in every aspect of their activities: they use tools that are very complicated and expensive to develop, in order to infect victims, retrieve data and hide activity in an outstandingly professional way, and utilize classic spying techniques to deliver malicious payloads to the victims.

    To infect their victims, the group uses a powerful arsenal of “implants” (Trojans) including the following that have been named by Kaspersky Lab: EquationLaser, EquationDrug, DoubleFantasy, TripleFantasy, Fanny and GrayFish. Without a doubt there will be other “implants” in existence.

    Ultimate persistence and invisibility

    GReAT has been able to recover two modules which allow reprogramming of the hard drive firmware of more than a dozen of the popular HDD brands. This is perhaps the most powerful tool in the Equation group’s arsenal and the first known malware capable of infecting the hard drives.


    I'm not suggesting that this is your exact problem, but it suggests that the "hacking" business is not something driven by individuals with nothing better to do than attempt to hack into individual user accounts, but is inside industry driven and enabled, so it is more likely higher level snooping even paid for out of the taxpayers pockets.

    use of private email as Secretary of State, and as they have expanded their look at whether she had violated public corruption law in the Clinton Foundation and State Department business.
    And as the evidence that the FBI is compiling is turning out to be so compelling. Will Hillary’s supporters still be in her camp? And if they are? How could people be so ignorant?
    And If Hillary should win the nomination it tells volumes of the left wingers. It tells us that they have no scruples... to put in nicely and mildly.
    This woman has been caught in so many obvious lies, and in so many scandals that there is no doubt she is a psychopath or that she and her followers, supporters are completely brain dead.
    And if by some lucky reason. she wins the election it will be only for one, a very poor reason, she is a woman, and she has a “D” next to her name, and not because she is at all qualified. In fact she should no longer eligible to be President after the baggage she is carrying.

(Note: This is a question of great possibility and not necessarily a prediction) Barack Hussein Obama II, is opening the doors and welcoming the terrorists into our country to kill us. This isn't a game. Not all of these people are terrorist, but some are. Actions always speak louder than words. It is there own people among them that is destroying there own countries, and left their wives and children behind to starve, suffer and die, so they could come here and destroy our country as well!!! The war has been theirs for years and is coming here now. It's only a matter of time before the terrorist start doing the same thing in America that they did in Paris. Of course, you can be absolutely sure that the attacks will be on a much grander scale here! That is why the enemy has infiltrated the major cities, and the largest states of our country with their terrorists. Oh how soon America forgets what these terrorist have done and are continuing to do in our country and others as well. Obama seems to be biding his time until he gets as many of them here as he can. I believe the attacks will happen shortly before the election, and Obama will declare martial law which would mean he could remain in charge as long as there was resistance to him. This would give him more reasons to kill Americans and take away their arms. Is this his grand plan to aid the terrorists in taking over this country!!!

    As soon as Donald Trump proclaimed we needed a ban on all muslim immigrants until we can “figure out what’s going on” liberals, especially Clinton, we bananas and called him a bigot and a racist and someone that couldn’t be president. Well you’ll never guess who once supported a ban on muslims and also supported profiling of muslims following 9/11. Here is an interview she did with ABC’s Sam Donaldson proving that she supported profiling of muslims after the terror attacks

    1. I wjsh you'd provided a lonk or two, but what you ay is plausible. H. Rodham Clointon is the type of person who will say ANYTHING if she thinks it might help her to get her way. Getting HER WAY is ALL she;s EVER really cared about. Those who cannot see that must be blind, deaf and dumb.

  75. You live the high life in a multi million dollar 15 room mansion. You have 3 exotic cars in your garage . You fine every night on Lobsters, Steaks, and Cavior. All this while people are starving and living in the street . Veterans are also living in the Streets, and being denied hospitalization . Our brave troops are out there away from their loved ones and getting shot at, and bring targeted by women and children. All that so you and I could be free... And you Will Smith is complaining about too many Whites winning Acadsmy awards! Suck it up cupcake!

    1. You sound an awful lot like a typical Bolshevik, Anita. That kind of egalitarian thinking is a good part of what is bringing us down.

      If life were "fair," life wouldn't be life. It would, instead, be a deadly dull, continual grinding down process, until nothing would be left but the ooze and slime from which we supposedly sprang (according to the militant evolutionists, anyway ;-).

    The Republican party is in full panic mode right now. As we inch closer and closer to the first presidential primaries, Donald Trump hasn’t gone away. In fact, most polls show his numbers at all-time highs. If you’re a rational Republican (yes, they do exist) you know there’s no way your party can go into 2016 with Trump as your candidate and expect to win.
    Despite popular belief, Republican voter turnout would be low: Yes, the “base” will be highly enthusiastic and rabid for a “President Trump” – but almost nobody else within the party will be. Politicians with future ambitions to either extend their careers, or advance them in some other way nationally, are not going to want to risk being tied in with Trump. Not only that, I’ve spoken to more than a few moderate to fairly conservative Republican friends who’ve told me they won’t vote for him because he’ll destroy their party. As I’ve stated before, I do believe there are more than just a few Republicans who would rather see Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders elected, and focus on winning in 2020, than risk seeing Trump dismantle the GOP from within, potentially doing damage from which they might never recover.
    And another thing, soes anybody really respect Sarah Palin on a political level? I know she got popular with the VP nomination that ended up bombing McCains campaign, then used her popularity to start a reality TV show, however, I hear many conservatives talking about this influence that she has... I just don't see it. Listening to her talk is like listening to a mindless robot spitting out conservative talking points to a kindergarten class. Why is Trump putting so much weight on this endorsement?? Is it because they are both Reality TV stars? Can anybody explain this?

    Bush never said anything about Obama because he wasn't the president at the time. And you just keep denying anything that Bush ever did wrong. You guys blame this man for everything. Yet its the republican politician that are causing the problems with this country. You won't work with him on anything, Sow me they tried other than bull crap. they spewed.
