The #dncleaks, or #dncleak, or whatever isn't blocked on Twitter right now and is the current hashtag, is causing a lot of turmoil. At this point, if Hillary loses she spends the rest of her life being investigated. So she doubles down by hiring the resigning DNC head (aka DWS) and goes all-in. But I think it will be very bad for turnout to ask people to vote purely out of negativity towards Trump and not for Hillary. Dumping her (and everyone implicated in the scandal) would be best for the Democrats but again, that won't happen because Hillary can't allow it to happen.

So we get told that we should really be angry with Advanced Persistent Threat 28, Code Name: Fancy Bear, and not upset over the massive corruption and cynicism that's been uncovered.

1-2 punch against the Donald tonight at the DNC. Bloomberg with the big one. The biggest speech against Trump I have seen so far. Exposed by a real billionaire from New York. "Let's vote for a sane candidate..." That must have hurt. Not sure how effective Kaine's mocking of Trump was, but it was attack-dog-style. Didn't expect that from Kaine.

Tim Kaine supports bank re-regulation etc. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/tim ... ddc4d2c86c

I'm pretty sure he was only picked to be Hillary's VP because he used to be chair of the DNC and this was all decided upon a long time ago. Picking someone like him when she is supposed to be the centrist on the ticket doesn't make a lot of sense otherwise. This might have seemed far-fetched before the DNC leaks but now that we see how that organization works, I am pretty convinced that this is what happened.

How do you pronounce that? I read it as dink leak.
Big government is for those who can't handle freedom. Political correctness is for those who can't handle reality.

Gun-free zones are where the gun violence happens. Ban gun-free zones before many more get killed. Also, gun violence in Europe is as bad as in US, and getting worse.

The most bigoted people in the world insist that they are the most open-minded, the cruelest people in the world insist that they are the most compassionate, and the most illogical insist that they are the most logical.

Just because Al Gore says there's a planetary emergency doesn't mean there's a planetary emergency. And just because somebody says it's science doesn't mean it's science.

So how's the ol' campaign to bring jobs back to American workers going?

This month, Trump is bringing jobs to Florida, as he looks to hire 78 servers, housekeepers, and cooks at his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach and the nearby Trump National Golf Club, Jupiter.

But instead of making sure those jobs go to Americans, he is seeking to import foreign workers for the positions, which pay $10.17 an hour for housekeepers, $11.13 an hour for servers, and $12.74 for cooks. He filed applications this month claiming he couldn’t find enough Americans to do that work, and is seeking temporary visas to bring in 65 workers at Mar-a-Lago along with another seven waiters and six cooks at the golf club.


You know, once the Dems minimum wage increase goes through, Donald might actually be able to hire Americans instead of bringing in cheap foreign labour.

Bernie supporters are alleging foul play at the DNC convention: actors, white noise machines. Meanwhile, Trump +7 in the latest poll by USC & LA Times.

I envision a playing field that's tilted to about 45 degrees with The Queen safely strapped into her throne awaiting coronation. Bernie the Pretender has already vanished over the edge along with Debbie Whatzername while his supporters are clinging on by their fingertips. Despite enduring repeated beatings by throngs of courtiers, the court jester somehow manages to maintain his grip on Madam's throne and even seems to be somehow getting to his feet. All in a day's work in this wonderland known as U.S. presidential politics.
Totalitarianism: a political system in which the state recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible.

Trump and Hillary(ious) . Don't like Trump at all (Trump is out for Trump) and don't like Hillary that much either. She's looking out for number one herself. Americans don't have good people that want to be President it seems. Almost want to just keep Obama on for a 3rd term.

Didn't vote for him both times, but think he's not doing a bad job. In spite of all the hatred directed at him from so many quarters. Secret Muslim out to destroy America, etc.
