    There is not one thing in the mini speech that is false. Several points should be made. One, who cares was Brits think about our political system. What could be more insane than to pay tax dollars to put up a "royal" family that does nothing, has no governing power, and borders on being unphotogenic.

    The next point is that you make the same mistake in every post, believing there is a gap with Democrats. I could take that video and substitute the five Democrats running and it would be just as true. One of these days you are actually going to pull out a copy of the Constitution and DOI and read them.

    We should care how they view us and our politics and our leaders as it impacts our and their foreign policy.

    I had not heard about the phrase that is going around the USA and the world the GOP Clown Car.

    Hmmmmmmm, I didn't make any point. I just posted what I thought was an interesting view from across the pond. The Brits do have a biting sense of humor.

    I do not see how the Constitution or DOI have anything to do with this thread. Are you trying to say their video violates either?

    Crabtownboy, this is pathetic. Let's look at some of the reasons given why these candidates should be called clowns:

    Christie: He's a bully. (Tough on departments that waste money.)

    Carson: He's black.

    Bush: The name "Jeb" is an acronym.

    Kenneth Page: Who? Anyway, the claim is he performed an "unauthorized" exorcism in college. (What is an "authorized exorcism"?)

    Huckabee: Wants to de-fund Planned Parenthood.

    Cruz: Was born in Canada.

    Walker: His former chief of staff made up some embarrassing emails about him.

    So, really, is is all ya got? This is supposed to be substantive? It's pathetic.

    Crabby is not concerned with why they want to call them clowns just that they do. His insinuation is that unless the GOP is as liberal as Crabby and those calling them clowns then calling them clowns is justified.

    Poor Democrats.

    Bernie Sanders is who they wanna be. Naive, ignorant to history, but with his heart in the right place.

    Hillary Clinton is who they are. Dismissive, condescending, and corrupt to the core.

    I think the GOP actually has a few good candidates. They are most definitely in better shape than the Dems.

    CTB--

    So you've dissed some of the GOP's presidential contenders.

    If I had a mind to, I'd diss most of them too!

    Okay, CTB, since you've admitted in some of your previous posts, that you're not too happy about some of the jackass party's presidential contenders, I want to see your post that disses them to the very same extent that you've dissed the GOP's presidential contenders.

    You did tell us that you are non-partisan, remember? :smilewinkgrin: :thumbs:

    As soon as I find one from the Brits on the Democrats I will post it. They do have an interesting sense of humor.

    Why must your source be from a Brit?

    Are you saying that there is no source from right here in the USA that's capable of providing you with enough references about the Dems' misdeeds, scandals, or other wrong doings that you need to rely on sources from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean to supply you with the information you need to dis the Dems?

    Bro. CTB, you seem to be grasping with straws here.

    I can go to plenty of anti-Dem websites that'd supply me with more than enough anti-Dem dirty laundry in a short period of time--and so could you if you honestly tried.

    Seems to me that you're purposely avoiding what shouldn't take more than an hour or 2 to come up with my simple request.

    Nice try, Bro. CTB, but apparently you only want to evade the obvious. I for one am not about to just lie down and concede that you're purposely delaying my request.

    I'll give you more time, but not the several hours you hope that I'll give you .

    Because the source of this thread is a Brit source so it only seems fair to find a Brit source on the Democrats. I looked today, but did not find anything. Maybe because there are so many Republican candidates and they are fighting each other that they find the Democrats too boring to report anything yet. Who knows?

    No, but it is interesting to get a take from a foreign source. If I cite a US source it is easy just to say they are just leaning right or left and thus discounted.



    I am out and about ... not in front of the computer all day. Helped an elderly lady hook up a wireless headset to her TV this afternoon and then visited a friend who is terminally ill with not much more time here on earth.

    Nope, just out doing things. Will not be around the cottage much tomorrow. Have a morning exercise class and then I am to help a friend look over some things he needs to do. I may have to help him with some tasks.


    I will answer when I can. As I said I am not here at the computer all the time.

    Hillary is going to win. She is not a clown--more like a burnt-out light bulb. Just what we need--another old white Democrat.

    The truth Mr. is that the democrats are running a crook and an old man. The only democrat running that can be called a man is Jim Webb and has a snowballs chance in hell of winning the nomination.

    Actually the Republicans have the best field of candidates running, with the exception of Donald Trump, since Reagan won the nomination and smacked Carter around in the general election. All 16 Republican candidates make the two Socialists leading the democrat pack look Obamaesque in their capability to serve as president.

    Hillary should be thrown in jail for life for her deliberate use of an unprotected email server. Anyone with half a brain should know that the Sec. of State would handle classified material. Of course that job was just a front for Hillary to fly around the world as "bag lady" for the Billy "boy" Clinton foundation. Why else would she delete 30 thousand emails.

    It is obvious that Obama is sabotaging the Clinton campaign or he would not let the FBI investigate her stupidity in handling classified material. Biden will rum but will not be able to keep his mouth shut sufficiently long to mount a real campaign. Perhaps the democrats, those with a full head, will turn to Webb in desperation!

    Whoa, you underestimate senior citizen Bernie Sanders, the last of the Woodstock Hippies, who will bring us socialism along the lines of the Swedish model.

    [​IMG]

    Not this Swedish Model--see Fausta's Blog for a complete rundown of how the Swedes are abandoning socialism.
