I'd like to be there, but I expect it to be too crowded and too chaotic for me to enjoy it. Do you think he'll make a promise to read to the kids and then bail on them like his opponent?

This thread should spiral out of control rather quickly. Wonder how long it lasts before it is removed or locked. I say it does not last the day.

If this thread is going to go off the rails I figured we should do it with a smile! If there is one thing the whole forum seems to agree with it is the greatness of Dogs!!

Dog Elected Mayor Of Cormorant, Minnesota — Again



Duke may be the most popular politician in America, winning re-election for a landmark third time in a landslide.

What’s his secret? Probably the fact that he’s a dog, and everyone loves dogs.

In a vote held over the weekend, the 9-year-old Great Pyrenees won his third consecutive term as mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota. Voters paid $1 each to cast ballots in the election, which was held during the annual “Cormorant Daze” festival.

“Everybody voted for Duke, except for one vote for his girlfriend, Lassie,” David Rick, Duke’s owner, told local ABC station WDAY.

As mayor, Duke appears on three highway billboards promoting the community.

While Duke’s role is somewhat unusual, he’s not the first animal to be elected to office in the U.S. Roadtrippers has a fascinating look at some of the nation’s non-human mayors, including two other dogs, a cat, a cow and a beer-drinking goat named Mayor Clay Henry III.

Can we also ask Hillary about the Clinton Foundation and her daughters 900k salary?

FYI: As Richard Pryor did in "Brewsters Millions" I wish we could vote for "NONE OF THE ABOVE"

Just got word that my brother hooked me up with a ticket. The rally starts at 7:30, and gates open at 3:30. I'm hoping that I can get in.

I support Trump as the only viable alternative to Hillary but I won't be attending the event.

I'd rather yield my space to someone who is on the fence. They can see the man in person and make up their mind, hopefully to vote for him.

Default .....hey Melania, just look what I got up in Laconia!

I wonder if a public forum similar to this is safe to do in today's Russia......or, in Russia today, do citizens only make positive comments concerning Vladimir Putin, and keep their opposing comments quiet?

From 1917-1989 in the Soviet Union regime of Russia, one never had to go too far to find their local communist party, and everyone probably kept their opinions very quiet so the party would not come looking for you.
................

Here's a friendly suggestion for Donald: Suggest he stops at the Laconia Wal-Mart, very close to his Laconia Airport airplane landing spot while enroute to the Middle School and go get himself an exercise bicycle for working out on his plane. You know that just twenty minutes/day of pedaling a stationary bike would probably do him a lot of fitness good.

As you may have heard, yesterday, Dr. Oz on tv called the Donald "almost obese" because he weighs not 237-lbs as he claimed but actually 267-lbs, and not the 198-lbs as was previously reported by Donald. He is 6'2" tall, not the 6'3", and weighs 267-lbs (NY Times)? If true ...... that is way, way too much weight. A healthy weight for him is 210-lbs, and not 267-lbs....so he is about 57-lbs overweight.....which is a lot.......what a fat pig! .... and he is not just almost obese but is obese.

.....for just 98-dollars, the Laconia Wal-Mart has a small stationary exercise bicycle that could be used on the airplane while watching tv.

Thats a great idea FLL! After the election he can then star in 2 different reality shows with the same name: "The Biggest Loser". Or would that be "The Hugest Loser"?

This has really been a weird presidential campaign and it's going to take a lot of work for the next president to bring everyone back together, but I have confidence that she can do it.

Just like the current President promised he would! How is that working out for you?

Somehow it just doesn't feel like we are all that unified.

Pretty easy to explain why. Political Correctness has fractured the citizens of this country from being just plain Americans into some iteration of hyphenated American and once those groups are established then the process of pitting one against the other ensues. The political class love this and exploit it for all it's worth. After all it's a great way to buy support with other people's money.

I would add that each division has become an opportunity for some to declare "You're either FOR us or AGAINST us".

"You know, I never really think about this issue" has no place these days.

Default .... nice hairdo Donald!

So, what's going on with the donald's hair ...... how did it look last night? ..... he seems to usually be wearing a hat, but mostly when outdoors? Was he wearing a hat inside the Laconia Middle School last night?

Anyone there at the Middle School get to muss up his hair like on late night tv?

'A hair surgeon explains what is going on with Trump's hair':
http://www.businessinsider.com/hair-...s-hair-2015-12 ....... (1,389,546 views, 1:29)

The donald .... has had something like two surgical hair transplant procedures ...... according to a hair transplant surgeon, as he sees it? Who knew ..... and I thought it was 100% totally natural ...... just like the color ...... who knew?

As Abraham Lincoln said back on September 2, 1858 ... 158-years ago: "He (Donald Trump) may fool all the people some of the time; he can even fool some of the people all the time, but he can't fool all the people all the time."

No matter what you think of this election cycle, Trump's 15 minutes of fame is almost up. The next couple months will be full of "interesting" stuff, but at the end of the day, he can go back to the most important thing in his life, collecting money. He is unelectable - both due to the electoral process and due to his own doing.

How did attendance compare with Hillary's rally in Concord?



Maybe the crowd was in response to our Vice President's message of just one minute?

Yes, question--especially pictures comparing different types of events in an attempt to prove a (false) point.

What's cool about this is that you did the same thing the media did last fall with pics of Sanders and Clinton rallies and the reports of debate 'winners' that contradicted actual polls.

I don't care what my students come to believe--not a single one of them knows what my personal beliefs are--but I care very much that they're educated enough to spot manipulative rhetoric before making their decisions.

What's cool about this is that you did the same thing the media did last fall with pics of Sanders and Clinton rallies and the reports of debate 'winners' that contradicted actual polls.

I don't care what my students come to believe--not a single one of them knows what my personal beliefs are--but I care very much that they're educated enough to spot manipulative rhetoric before making their decisions.

So was your picture from NH or not? Simple question, because the way you constructed your post it sure seemed like you were posting a picture from NH, truth matters.

Also the politician books the "type of event" to fit the expected turnout at said event. Hillary has been appearing other organisation's rallies for as a guest for most of her large turnouts, her events have been more like the one APS posted. Trump on the other hand has been attracting large crowds.

You call it manipulation, I see truth.

Oh, and I would much rather see you teach your students to ignore the rhetoric completely and go to the source, which is very easy to do now days. Trump's speeches are easily found via youtube in their entirety, as are Hilary's. And, like event attendance the differences are astounding and very unlike what is portrayed in the news.

Edit: Woodguy53 post where the picture is from, I hope you are more honest with your students.

No, no, no--you implied Trump's crowds are destroying Clinton's by comparing two totally different scenarios, one of a rally in a gym, the other of a town hall forum in what appears to be a small museum or something. That's what the manipulative media does everyday and one of the reasons America is in the pickle it is. Now, you may be correct in that Trump is/will draw bigger crowds in NH, but to make that case you must (should) do it honestly and not just with cherry-picked images that feed your narrative.

If you can't fill an auditorium you book a town hall, that's common sense.

If you are discussing a crowd in NH, you don't post a picture from Omaha to look like a picture from NH, which you did, then pontificate about manipulation and cherry picking images.

And Trump's crowd did destroy Hillary's crowd and have been for months..... spin away professor spinmeister, I'm done.

Talking Apples vs Oranges

https://m.mic.com/articles/122531/on...-is#.cVDNZSktJ

Key takeaway from the link above:
"What it means: While Sanders ability to attract huge crowds is a key narrative of the campaign so far, crowd size is a notoriously imperfect indicator of a candidate's prospects in a coming election. In the days leading up to the 2012 presidential election, Republican nominee Mitt Romney played to roaring crowds in a number of states, including Ohio. On Election Day, he would lose there by more than 100,000 votes."

I believe the largest single campaign rally in the U.S. was at Fenway Park in '68 where 60,000+ turned out for our beloved president to-be... .Eugene McCarthy.

"You will learn a whole lot more about Donald Trump if he produces his income tax return." ... quote Warren Buffett on August 1, 2016 at the rally from an Omaha, Nebraska high school with Hillary Clinton.

"The only reason he won't release his taxes is because he has something to hide!"
...quote Warren Buffett, August 1, 2016, at the rally photo above.

From the Omaha High School photo above: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/02/us...aska.html?_r=0 Warren Buffett video 1:31, Aug 1, 2016

Hypocritical Bernie... poor guy being manipulated by the corrupt Clinton/DNC juggernaut. I wonder how much it took to pay him off to all of a sudden play nice. He has no creditability on the subject - not that MSNBC has any, oh that's right who watches them anyways? Nobody!

He railed against the establishment, now he praises it, where's his integrity? Oh right can't have that and support Clinton at the same time.

Bernie just turned 75 this month, and his 6-year senate term runs till the end of 2018. In August, he bought a rustic, older waterfront, summer house on Lake Champlain in North Hero, Vermont with 500' of shoreline.

http://www.heavy.com/news/2016/08/be...c-wife-jane/2/


Wonder what Bernie will get for a boat, and does Lake Champlain have a speed limit? ..... will Bernie be driving a Donzi with a name on the transom such as 'Power to the People' ...... or maybe ...... 'Feel the Bern' ..... budda-boom....budda-boom....budda-boom..... go Bernie go! 'Feel the Bern' would be a super-good name for Bernie's new, used go-fast...... don't u thinkum!

One of the photos shows the home is located on somewhat of a point in the shoreline, and there is a long dock with a boat lift and a canopy cover, but no boat is visible .... so that means Bernie needs a boat!

.....yup! ..... just like you say Maxum ........ "poor guy" ....... poor poor poooor Bernie!

See Post# 47 by FLL. The house on Lake Champlain was his "going away present" from the DNC. Yes, he is a true hypocrite! Burn one with Bern, baby!

I think for myself, thank you. Your boy was bashing capitalism all during his campaign. Yet amazingly, as soon as he's snuffed by Clinton and the DNC, he's buying a $600,000.00 lake house? Funny how capitalism ain't so bad when it suits him and his ilk. True hypocrites, and truly deplorable.

Default Traded for a summer home in Maine inherited from Mrs. Sanders parents.

http://www.snopes.com/2016/08/10/ber...s-summer-home/

O'Meara Sanders said that she had inherited a vacation home in Maine, but the family was unable to make use of it due to its distance from their primary residence in Vermont, so she sold it and used the proceeds to finance the purchase of a more suitable vacation home in North Hero:

“My family had a lake home in Maine since 1900, but we hadn’t had the time to go there in recent years — especially since my parents passed away,” she said. “We finally let go of it and that enabled us to buy a place in the islands — something I’ve always hoped for.”

In the 8:43 MSNBC interview of Senator Sanders from my post #45, Bernie mentions his seven grand-kids, and four kids, and explains why he very strongly wants Hillary to get elected president. U know he just turned age-75.

That MSNBC video link in my post #45 also includes some recent videos from Hillary and Donald, separately, including the entirety of Donald saying that President Barack Obama is a US citizen, born in Hawaii, in the el crapo way that only the donald talks .... i.e. donaldese tough-guy spoken thuggery with his thug glare!

The "Sanderses" wanted a view of Vermont.

Snopes has dismissed criticism of Bernie, but why does Snopes always revert to statements by the accused? (Michelle says it isn't true, Hillary says it's a conspiracy, Barack says it's conspiracy-driven, Ms Bernie says she paid for it from inheritance monies).

Interesting that Joe Biden installed a new railing before Hillary's visit. In videos, you can see Hillary grasping the Biden's new railing, and indoors, table tops, kitchen counters. She always has pillows and a tall stool handy for appearances. This is no way to start a Presidency, even if it's "earned" or an "entitled" one. Neurological problems "creep" within the afflicted individual.

While it's sad when anyone deals with a neurological affliction, to "officially" deny it—or to have Matt Lauer and a compliant US press never addressing the problem—is deplorable.

Dehydration, pneumonia, and allergies?

Oh well.....sew buttons and a bag of beans about Hillary! ....and what about Franklin Roosevelt who was president from March 4, 1933 to April 12, 1945, when he died at age-63. In April 1921, he was diagnosed with polio at age-39. Television was not here till about 1951, and television would not have been good for Roosevelt. FDR was very good on the radio!

The donald is about 60-lbs overweight as he weighs about 267-lbs, and is 6'2" tall which makes him obese ..... no surprise there ..... just look at him!

At age 68 and 70, it sure seems like both Hillary and Donald are both too danged old to be running for president. Ronald Reagan was in better health, it seems, when he started his presidency at age-69, just two weeks before turning 70.

www.time.com/4030136/martin-omalley-video/ Would be very surprised to see Hillary or Donald singing on Wall St like this.

Here's the guy who the Democrats should have been supporting as a candidate, Martin O'Malley, age-53......who unfortunately went nowhere in the primaries. Plus, he sings and strums a guitar, and does songs like 'What do you do with a drunken sailor?'

Well then, let me ask you similar questions:

Do you get your news from CNN, MSNBC, ABS, CBS and the other overtly biased mainstream media that do nothing but provide cover for Clinton? This latest "bombing" incident is a perfect example. She used the word "bombing" at the very same time Trump did. However, CNN chose to edit her statements, thus removing the word "bombing". Then they turned right around and crucified Trump for using the same exact statement she did. Totally pathetic.

See, it works both ways.

http://www.snopes.com/2016/09/14/pol...t-trump-rally/

Nothing even close to this punching assault incident took place at the Laconia rally.....everyone was very well behaved in Laconia ......but not so in Asheville, North Carolina on Sept 12.......go figure? Includes a 1:21 video of the rally crowd and a 68-year old woman holding a 'Dump Trump' sign and hooked up to a portable oxygen breather tank supposedly getting punched out by a 73-year old man.......is a little chaotic during the assault punch out.

So, all things considered.....Laconia was an incident free Donald Trump rally.......way to go Laconia!

Supposedly, according to the report, she said to him something like; "With Trump, you will soon be talk'n Russian" or something, and he immediately hit her. Apparently, her comment struck a sensitive issue with him, and he smacked her .... and now he has a big legal problem with local justice system. Wonder if the case will be heard by a jury, or by a single judge?

Can you say staged? I mean really complete video of the whole thing as if this was not done purposely to instigate something? I don't care if she is a crippled up old woman...seriously I have to wonder what the hell is the matter with people. If anything somebody that age should know better. Not that I condone what happened but tempting fate is usually rewarded with a Darwin award.

Protecting the US from a greatly-flawed immigration policy, Donald Trump initiated his campaign by cautioning against a massive Middle East "immigration" of hundreds of thousands.

Trump was reviled with the quote,
Quote:
"...That's not who we are..."
FDR, on the other hand, rejected a similar, much smaller, and pitiable group from a US arrival in 1939.

Especially after three US attacks in 1 day, "Common Sense" should be the sole determination for a new immigration policy.

Then they turned right around and crucified Trump for using the same exact statement she did. Totally pathetic.

See, it works both ways.
Truth and reality do not have 2 sides. You completely made up your assertion that the DNC paid off Bern to the tune of the 600k to buy his lake house.
You then said you "think" for yourself, right before another poster detailed the real way Bern got his lake house and the DNC had nothing to do with it.
I suspect you have confused "think" with "hallucinate".

So your take is that I'm supposed to believe what the liberal, biased media has to say about Bernie's acquisition? Yeah right. I'll stand by my position about how the Bern got his new crib. In typical fashion, you failed to comment on the media covering for Clinton. Are those Prius or Subaru fumes that you're inhaling?

Default ..... M.S. St Louis tragedy

The M.S. St Louis tragedy on about May 27, 1939:

www.wikipedia.org/wiki/MS_St._Louis

www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cordell_Hull

Big surprise: Secretary of State Cordell Hull, an Episcopalian, was married (1917-1954, her death) to a Jewish woman, Rose Witz, originally from Austria.....and he advised President Roosevelt not to let the M.S. St Louis dock ashore and unload Jewish passengers into the United States.

Cordell Hull remains the longest serving secretary of state, for 11-years, from 1933-44.

Times have changed since 1939; today's 114th congress, 2015-2017 has 10 Jewish senators, 9-Democrats and 1-independent, and the House of Representatives has 18-Democrats and 1-Republican.

Am trying to determine what was number of Jewish senators and congressmen in May, 1939? It had to be much fewer than today?
.............

So, how does this relate to today's two candidates, Hillary vs Donald ...... which one is the better choice and why?

Hillary - After all her so called experience, years as head of the state department, senator and so forth still is unable or unwilling to identify who the problem is and continues to endorse subjecting the American people to suicidal policies such as importing 10s of thousands of refugees from a part of the world where we 1. know is an incubator for terrorism and 2. terrorists organizations have openly stated their goal is to infiltrate this population with their kind to continue carrying out attacks against this nation and others. Need I remind you with quite a bit of success as well. Now either her and BO have rocks in their heads or have an agenda they are operating on that is clearly not in our best interest as a country. We owe these people nothing, nor have any obligation to take them in. So she can take her so called experience and shove it you know where because this is simply insanity. Haven't we seen enough violence already or do we really need to keep the doors open and readily invite more in all in the interest of being PC? Those people don't like us, never will and will not be happy until everyone submits to their twisted ideology.

Trump on the other hand at least (with no so called "experience") can easily identify who the problem and suggests simply shut the freaking door. Furthermore states that unless or until we are in a position to properly figure out who these people are, where they came from and under what circumstances their entry into this country is beneficial to us, no entry. To that point his ideas of putting some level of scrutiny on those that are already here certainly makes sense as well.

Seems pretty darn logical to me... but then again having been to the middle east in the gulf war I saw enough to know that I don't like or want that kind of violent chaos, stone aged culture or their crazy religion (I use that word very loosely) here in the US. We have enough problems already to deal with - why openly import more?

The amount of refugees the President wants to allow in this country doesn't come out of thin air -- it must be chosen in consultation with Congress. Moreover, the president and Congress set budgets for the agencies involved in resettlement.

Some people who are posting here are depending on the media for all their information and don't have a clue as to how government is really run.

Don't cloud the issue here, the problem is both BO and Hillary want to bring these people over here and illustrates complete incompetence on their part. Oh sure they pay lip service to vetting these people but it has already been well established we do not have a means to do this and clearly this is of no concern to either of them. Whether or not they need congress's approval or consultation is irrelevant. The media has nothing to do with this, they both have clearly stated their desire to do this. No spin here... straight from Hillary's mouth.

Billionaire George Soros has augmented Congress' budget by a half-billion dollars. If you don't know the name George Sorosor Saul Alinsky for that matter—you shouldn't be voting.

As for the "refugees", most of the murderers of Americans were sons of similarly-inclined "refugees". Orlando- and San Bernardino attacks come to mind.

Quote:
[Mateen] follows in the footsteps of Syed Rizwan Farook, one of the San Bernardino, California, terrorists who was the son of Pakistanis; Nadir Soofi, one of two men who attacked a drawing competition in Garland, Texas, last year and whose father was from Pakistan; and then-Maj. Nidal Hassan, the child of Palestinian immigrants whose shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009 set off the modern round of deadly lone-wolf attacks.
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...ost-fruitful-/
Very troubling is that the FBI had the mass-killers "on lists".

______________

I will look for the following at the debates, as it is rumored that Hillary has an earpiece that connects her electronically with her aides.

The rumor:

Quote:
A hearing aid would be 100% allowed, if it was a true hearing aid.

Listen to her latest speeches or talks. She speaks (sometimes sounding a bit drugged) in perfect little clauses, pauses as if to think, then finishes the sentence perfectly. It doesn’t work like that, speaking off the cuff. It seems like she is reading. Another clue is at the end of one phrase she will end the sentence, by mistake too early, and then have to restart and end the sentence.

Such as: “and that brings us to where we are toDAY!” [whoops, after her strong sentence ending, she hears the rest of that sentence...] “which is why Donald Trump cannot be President!” She’s hearing the phrases and repeating.
All I can say, is "be aware".



______________

Headline:

Clinton/Kaine Rally Draws “Crowd of Dozens” In Pennsylvania…

Interesting that "crowds are unimportant to the election's outcome"; however, Hillary's Omaha "impressive" crowd was augmented by high school students bussed-in for the occasion. Many football jerseys from local high schools can be seen in the crowd.

Gates strung across the gymnasium floor controlling close-in access to Hillary made the crowd look bigger than it was (to network cameras, who were restrained to a position even further away).

Manipulation is very evident to those who analyze it.

“My family had a lake home in Maine since 1900, but we hadn’t had the time to go there in recent years — especially since my parents passed away,” she said. “We finally let go of it and that enabled us to buy a place in the islands — something I’ve always hoped for.”
So Mr. and Mrs. Sanders took the proceeds from that Maine house to buy another vacation home. I find it deliciously ironic that Bernie enjoys some of life's excesses while preaching to us how much we should be able to have or not have. I wonder how many refugees will be invited to stay at that nice lake house. He has always been just another two faced politician who fooled his sheeple really well! Socialism is for the people, not the socialist.

AMEN! Right on! Bingo! And on top of it all, the Queen just shelled out $1.6mm to buy the house next door to them. Do as we say, not as we do, preach the Democrats. Not bad for someone who claims she left the White House "dead broke". DEPLORABLE! http://nypost.com/2016/09/22/clinton...-in-chappaqua/

Default ....not Carter, Bush-41, Clinton, Bush-43 or Reagan!

It seems to me that it is safe to say that every former president; Carter, Bush-41, Clinton, and Bush-43 will all probably be voting for Hillary. Voting is a secret ballot and one does know for certain but think about it.

Will both Bush's, father and son, be of the same mind as son and brother Jeb, and vote for Hillary........it sure seems like they will, yes.


How about Ronald Reagan, who passed away in 2004 at age-94 ...... would he be voting for Hillary too? Hmmmmm.....if Reagan was still here, then probably Trump would no way, even be the nominee candidate....Trump would have gone no where in the NH primary, back in February .... Ronald Reagan was presidential!

Timing really Is everything. I honestly thought we would never see another Republican president until they came a little to the center on some social Issues. But this year WAS definitely there for the taking. Hillary Is the most beatable candidate (aside from Trump) I think I've ever seen. Oh well, 4 more years and we'll see If They can come up with something. All those years Ron Paul ran In futility, I think he could have pulled it out this year. Timing really Is everything.

I find it completely embarrassing that this is the best the American voters can do...Trump and Hillary???...Really?? What does this say about the mentality of the American voter?? We are the laughing stock of the civilized world.

JFK and Ron Reagan must be turning in their graves!

• Donald Trump isn't gaining his momentum from Republicans, he's getting it from those millions disaffected by "The District of Corruption"—"The Imperial City". Where Transparency and Crony-Capitalism were brought to incredible lows these past 7¾ years.

• Trump's real adversary isn't Hillary, as much as the "MSM", or the "Main Stream Media". Wikipedia lists The New York Times and CBS News as examples and further states,
Quote:
"An elite mainstream sets the agenda and smaller organizations parrot it.[1]"
• Tomorrow night, the MSM will want to portray Hillary as this:



But what they must work with, is this:



"Pneumonia", "allergies", and "dehydration"?

While unkind, this .gif is making the rounds:



• The MSM isn't the only advocate for Hillary: Google's autocomplete feature made researching this post very difficult.

Quote:
[WikiLeaks' founder] added that Google will support Hillary Clinton as the company has close ties with the US Department of State, which Clinton previously headed.


2. Confiscation of Property ← Link...

Dilbert's creator, Scott Adams, makes a compelling case: maybe it's time to change a certain signature?
Quote:

“Private property and freedom are inseparable.” — George Washington
• Not following Redditt? An army of ordinary "surfers" (not MSM) uncovered that Hillary aide Paul Combetta asked Redditt for a method to cleanse emails for a "very" VIP.

"BleachBit" as reported here, was used.

• Of Hillary's closest aides, five have been given "immunity from prosecution".

When nothing's illegal, one should be surprised at any mention of "immunity from prosecution".

• Hillary is said to carry Obama's objectives "Forward". Those who've "Led From Behind" included Soviet Commissars, who followed Soviet WWII troops, and carried revolvers pointed at their backs!

• You might be a "Deplorable", if...

I completely understand what you are saying but it all depends on who gets in the race. We really cannot help who runs or who does not. Trump was not my first pick. However, I have wanted an outsider as POTUS who in theory cannot be bought.

Trump came to be because enough Americans have had it. The R's were given the House and Senate and still did nothing. Thank or blame them for Trump being the nominee. You are right either way! There would be no such thing as Candidate Trump if Romney had won.

I feel the exact same way, I've been waiting for someone to break up the 2 party system, Then it's this guy? unbelievable, somethings got to happen to change the whole structure. There's change needed in almost every aspect of Gov and none of it will ever happen with the 2 party system, rigged to swim in billions for both sides. Staying in power is the only goal.

Here is the question that Republican politicians need to ask themselves. Are they more afraid of Trump winning or losing?

The system does not allow for you and I to realistically run for POTUS. It is set up that way to allow for the establishments to remain. The everyday hard working tax paying American would be a threat the establishments. I would be at least.

With the Donald questioning Hillary's stamina, meaning her ability to endure the demand and rigor needed to be a working president........say hey.....why not throw in a tennis match......Donald vs Hillary.....in addition to the three debates.

A tennis match.....Hillary vs Donald.....what a great idea......America loves sports on tv.....so a tennis match would be very big!

Here's the Donald from April 7, 2015, 1:44, in Virginia, hitting a few tennis balls with Serena Williams: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04PxQm_L1Hs

And, here's Hillary.....where is Hillary playing tennis......apparently, there is no video, ever, ever, that has Hillary playing tennis.....surely...doesn't she have a local tennis court where she serves down the tee at 122-mph.....come on Hillary!
