It's 100 percent true that people that want jobs can find them- most don't want them or the pay they give .....
This election is an absolute joke - in my life I have never seen a candidate tell people to vote for someone else
You may not believe in what trump does - but you can't deny he does want to be successful as a president-
Can't believe kasich thinks "wow new election" I won Ohio- if he does its one state WHAT GOOD IS THAT- and it's HIS state to boot. The whole election is absurd- unemployment numbers are absurd because they are not even close to accurate- the government just erases people from the count after a certain period of time.
There are jobs- and ways to make money you just have to work.
The family structure in our country is ruined for the most part- my gf is a teacher and has to call home at times and the replies she gets from parents are disgusting - not to mention sometimes for class trips the parents can't sent in 10 dollars but the kids are wearing new air max 95s
That's my rant- thanks for reading



It's all about the math, now. Rubio takes FL, Kasich takes OH, both winner-take-all, and the mountain gets that much steeper for Trump , nearly impossible, to go into the convention with enough delegates to win a first ballot. He won't win another one if he doesn't already have the delegates.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I'll take trump anyday - everyone knows he will tone it down some-



It sounds like what you're saying is that you support Trump because you don't believe in his platform.

but can anyone honestly say that we should not have a 50 foot wall it's a joke what goes on at the border- it's totally unsafe and the amount of drugs coming in is stagerring ,



If he can't earn enough support to win the election, it will be very clear the majority of Americans are saying exactly that. Personally I find it amazing that Trump advocates violence against Americans who attend his political rallies, but can't support the idea of using violence against Mexican drug smugglers by adding electric voltage to the wall we will be building next February.

Just got off the phone with my mom. My parents live in Ohio. I asked who she's going to vote for on Tuesday. The conversation went something like this:

Me: Who are you going to vote for?
Her (sounding displeased): I don't know....
Me: don't vote for Trump
Her: did I say I was going to vote for him?
Me: you should vote for your governor...
Her: yeah, that is probably the best choice that we have left. If it comes down to Trump and Hillary in November, I'm probably going to stay home. I know that's awful, but this is ridiculous....

I've heard so many people say they are going to not vote in November if it comes down to them. It's crazy.

That's the first time I've heard of that scenario (bolded area) -- if the wall is tall enough why would it need to be electrified? As time goes by I don't think Trump will be our next President. Another term for Obama and his agenda to transform America seems inevitable, another socialist in the white house will be the end for this once great and exceptional country.

maybe I was mistaken about the meaning of socialist/ism. Sanders is not a socialist, then what is he? He is a social democrat; which is radically different from being a democratic socialist.

That's what 'average' means. Doesn't matter
what the IQ number is, half are below it and
half are above it.


Isn't that the median? I wonder if there is a big discrepancy between the average intelligence in the US and the median intelligence and if that has changed over time. Sounds like a research project for some University PhD with time on his/her hands.

I've previously mentioned this term 'right of passage' the link below describes it in another fashion however it still has SOO many parallels to my term above. BTW the link below is an excellent read.

Does anyone actually believe that Mexico really has anything to do with our drug problems? What would building a wall do for that? I could listen to other reasons, but for drug enforcement is just retarded.

If we have the demand, the supply will be there. Shut down the border and more will come domestically or through tunnels, the supply WILL meet the demand, the demand(we) are the problem.

Would think that over 40 years of the same sort of thinking regarding drug enforcement with zero tangible effectiveness would be enough to convince people otherwise, but I guess not.

It's only part of the problem but truthfully he has some views (trump) that I don't agree with but a lot of what he says - ie trade imbalance- Isis and other items are spot on
That being said Ted Cruz is spot on with his irs solution although I cannot see it ever being passed by congress

As for the rest of your argument, when you engage in ridiculous hyperbole like the above, you don't deserve a response. Respect is earned. Or maybe you want a respect handout.



I don't want, need, or give a flying crap about your respect. As far as wanting a respect handout, I've never asked for a handout. I am not going to start now.

Have a nice day!!

Here's what you said, precisely:

That was in direct response to the quote from Boz in which he said:

Quote: Boz

But why does my opinion even matter because according to Michael BlueJay, [sic] I'm an idiot who cannot spell 3 letter words, not worthy of debate.

So, in your own words, you equate a third-grade education with being part of an "educational elite". You apparently think we live in the Middle Ages.

As for the rest of your argument, when you engage in ridiculous hyperbole like the above, you don't deserve a response. Respect is earned. Or maybe you want a respect handout.



No, we EARN things on our side. The left has a lock on the handouts, that's why they win elections and will probably win this one. You can't win a majority when your message is hard work and sacrifice, but it nice to hear and know some still believe in it.

As for you Mr Bluejay, I would love to know more about what you did to become so much better than the average person. Again, were you just born special and others were just not so "lucky", or did you make the choices that you know others just can't or won't make? It has to be a heartwarming story for others to hear. Please tell a less educated person like me, what can we all learn from the Michael Bluejay story? The world needs uplifting tales in these dark days.

My story is also here for others to hear, but it's just not as exciting. Nobody wants to hear about so guy who can't spell so good (well??) and still turned out alright. Kind of makes it seem regular people can do well without the help of elites by making good choices and working hard. But that doesn't fit you storyline and doesn't make you seem so special then, does it?
