My mistake. Thanks for correcting me.

Even if it was true, I fail to see what
it has to do with John Wayne's
character. He wasn't fat, far from it.
He might have a small paunch typical
of men in their 70's, but he certainly
wasn't a 'fat ass' as you implied.

Here he is in The Shootist, his last
movie. Does this look like a
fat ass to you?

info on "John Wayne"



One of my fave stories about John Wayne
is from the time he made a movie with
Ed Asner. Asner was a loud mouthed NY
lib and he was always shooting his mouth
off at Wayne, who was a staunch right
winger. It got to a point where Wayne
banned Asner from his presence and started
referring to him as 'that NY actor', instead
of using his name.

People like alpha males, we trust them. John Wayne,
for instance, was just as alpha off screen as on. It's
something you can't fake, you're born that way.



It is not just trusting them, it is wishing we had their abilities and the guts to do what they do. People hear Trump talk and wish they had the guts to say it like he did.

My politics vary, but I am getting tired of the ultra-liberal prattle from the nattering nabobs of NPR.

Lord, they go on and on about the poor, poor migrants in Europe, it's so sad, it's the world's problem blah blah blah.

My wife pointed out something: she said a news clip showing migrants trying to get on a train in Hungary showed the migrants were almost exclusively young men: few women and kids.

Why aren't these young men back home, fighting for their freedom, instead of running away like little pussies?

In May the bookmakers had Trump at
33/1 to win the election, after the debate
he was 10/1, on Aug 28 he was 5/1.

Bush was 4/1 on Aug 28, they are pretty
much tied. Hillary has always been
even money and it hasn't moved.

What are the people actually hoping for in a President?

This is an important issue of why drug prices can't be negotiated.

The only purpose for a woman in Islam is to procreate.

They don't write poems and songs of love to them, and they don't send valentines and flowers.

A lot of Christians have tried to sail to Europe from Africa, but by the time the boats make it to Europe, or are discovered at sea, the "poor migrant" Muslims have tossed all the Christians overboard.

But on one mentions that.

Why stay home and fight for your freedon when you can move to a Western country where the taxpayers are forced to guarantee your food, shelter and medical care for the rest of your life?

Germany and France are the engines of the Muslim Invasion of Europe.

Hollande got 90% of the Muslim vote and Merkel probably got the same.

They both want to impose quotas on European countries to force them to accept even more of the migrants.

For her part, Merkel has said "Islam belongs in Germany", and "There is no legal limit on the number of asylum seekers that Germany can take".

She has also attended at least one Muslim rally.

On one hand, history is full of men leaving home and sending money back as they work the frontier or the oil fields.

OTOH, Europe and the USA are playing with fire on this unlimited, illegal immigration they are allowing. Eventually both will be unrecognizable from the places these people are fleeing.
