Apparently, too, the duration is for the rest of your life.

I'm hearing that the NDA is not only unconstitutional via First Amendment protections, it's unenforceable. And more than ironic, given Trump's stance on being able to say whatever nasty thing pops into his head, without apology or factual basis. Transparency, he claims. What a laugh. More third world dictator policies, more like.

That part about employees is certainly unenforceable. And ironically, given all the other legal trappings, there is no severability clause. That means the contract rises or falls as a whole. Maybe that's the out -- when you sign it, you're "agreeing" to something that you know a priori is unenforceable so the "agreement" is void ab initio.

I wouldn't feel sorry for Trump's employees and their rights being violated any more than I would a Nazi death camp guard being forced to work unpaid overtime.

Trump (and conservatism in general) is fundamentally about depriving people of their rights, so anyone who signs up to be one of his flying monkeys shouldn't be surprised if that is done to them. Though it would be effin' HILARIOUS if Trump wound up suing one of his monkeys, er, staffers.

I haven't seen this before. Kind of has a lot of dirt and is sobering. Really might even deserve its own thread.

Poor Donald.

He made a fool out of himself on Twitter again.

Lyin' Hillary Clinton told the FBI that she did not know the "C" markings on documents stood for CLASSIFIED. How can this be happening?



(C) stands for Confidential, NOT Classified.

If you're gonna berate Hillary for not knowing something, maybe you should learn what the heck you're talking about!!

In my state (Texas) the Republican usually wins by a landslide, so I typically vote for a third-party candidate, like a Green. But there's a chance that the Texas race will be close this year, and if so, I plan on voting for Hillary. Which is a long way of saying, I didn't vote in the poll, because my answer isn't listed. ("Undecided")



For the first time in 75 years, Dallas Morning News endorses a Democrat POTUS candidate (in todayís information age, I donít think newspaper endorsement matters).

There is only one serious candidate on the presidential ballot in November. We recommend Hillary Clinton.

Hillary did a press conference this morning.

Hopefully all the righties who were desperately clamoring for one are satisfied.

What non-issue will they berate her for now? Back to Benghazi?

I'm not all that surprised by this editorial appearing in Dallas; Texas is a big state, and there is a wide political spectrum there, even though it may seem sometimes like there isn't. If we looked at the newspapers in Cowpie or Gun Love, Texas, we'd see 100% Trump slobber in the op-ed pages (AND in the "news" coverage).

Of course, NO ONE should endorse Trump, but I do wonder, like you, whether endorsements matter that much these days. Particularly in this race. Trumpers seem to be flocking to him because he professes to hate some of the same people they do. I think that matters more than whether Congressman Winklefester endorses him or not.

Edit: I note with amusement that one of the two reasons the Dallas paper endorses Clinton is that so many Republicans appear to actually like her. What more critical criterion for governance is there than being approved of by Republicans???

Her myriad of errors and shortcomings are non issues for you, but not the American public. I fully expect her to win as she is facing DT, but they are close enough in the polls now to at least worry her. I really enjoyed reading her Dallas newspaper "endorsement".
In summary, it said, "SHE SUCKS, BUT SUCKS A LOT LESS THAN HIM!"

I'd say that's the position of most voters this year.

I have so many solid Republican family members who just aren't going to vote for President this year. It's amazing.
