  1. When all is said and done and the Republicans do their postmortem for the 2016 election, I think they're going to conclude that Trump's base was mostly independents and Democrats who were allowed to vote in Republican primaries. (Note that Trump did much better in Open primaries than Closed primaries.) And it will cause Republicans to completely overhaul their primary system -- eliminating Open primaries, shortening the registration deadlines for Closed primaries, and adding Superdelegates. Basically, Donald Trump noticed loopholes in the Republican system and he exploited them perfectly. People will be writing books about how he tricked Republicans into ruining their own party.
  2. That's too bad. I like her.
  3. Guys, the +3 is sarcasm.
  4. Newsflash: most of those people are already voting for Trump. ;)
  5. Sometimes I read these stories and I want to tell you guys "Just give him one more chance!" And then I see "@#$% that baby - where's my father's day card?" and I realize I should just shut up.
  6. "We have top men working on it right now. Top men."
  7. Imagine how much worse Trump would be doing if Jon Stewart was still around.
  8. Chicago PD only said that Trump didn't speak to any of their "senior command". Doesn't mean that Trump didn't speak to a random Captain or patrol officer or security guard.
  9. whoknew: But has the "profit motive" really created better schools? Seems like most of the bad charter schools have ties to management companies motivated by profit. How many of the "good" charter schools were created from a profit motive?
  10. I'm not sure I believe in the argument that it's better than nothing. If we phrased it as "Let's spend $3 billion in taxpayer funds so that a few kids will get a better education but the rest will either see no improvement or they'll see their schools close in the middle of the school year", then I don't think many people would say that it was better than doing nothing. "Charter Schools" are one of those things that seem better in theory than in practice. Because right now it seems like it's just a haven for corruption and bad teachers.
  11. Hey Shady, stay strong. Don't worry about your dad. He is who he is and he's not suddenly going to change just because you're going through a crisis.
  12. Maybe she's just saying that Jesus didn't exist.
  13. Yankee23Fan: Here is a CNN poll that asks the birther question. 19% of Republicans and 9% of Democrats think Obama is foreign-born. I also found this poll which cracked me up: More Iowans think Ted Cruz was born in the United States than think Obama was born in the United States
  14. We are creating a whole generation of dumb kids with even dumber names.
