  • Why I Now Feel Compelled To Vote For Trump

    fireman15 to ASA Vet
    What he’s really saying is that he’s not intelligent enough to keep up with the rapid fire manner in which really smart people talk with each other.

    That was what worried me a bit during parts of the last debate. In parts I knew exactly what Trump was referring to, but I wasn’t sure that the majority of people who do not obsess over politics would understand.

    Better be careful with this Assange guy.
    He’s a loose cannon.

    He is not very loose; he has been stuck in the Ecuadorian Embassy for years. But yes I always thought of him as more of a Sanders kind of guy. That is why I said that politics makes strange bedfellows. But if his efforts manage to keep Hillary from being elected I don't give a rat's @ss... he should be given a pardon and allowed his freedom. We will owe him that much and much more.

    I had a 1968 Chrysler New Yorker with a 440 with a ported intake and 4 barrel carburetor. It was rated at 350hp stock. It outweighed the 67 corvette by 800 pounds so it would take longer to get up to its top speed. But at high speeds the extra weight probably made it more stable than the vette. It was long, low, had solid suspension, good tires and a tight front end. It’s speedometer went to 120 and it still felt solid at that speed, but it would not go much past that.

    I do not know if the “official” statistics support it, but my own observations both professionally and personally over the past few years are that the crime situation in Washington has gotten much worse since marijuana was legalized. Whether it is marijuana or the bad influence of Obama’s policies I do not know for certain.

    Politics makes very strange bedfellows. Assange has been put through the fire stuck in the Ecuadorian Embassy for several years with no end in sight. Trump has been put through the fire as well and I am sure that both have had their perspective changed in ways that neither ever expected.

    I sincerely hope that if Trump is elected that Assange is given a full pardon for what he has done to expose corruption at the highest levels in our country’s current regime. It is becoming fairly obvious that without his assistance that the globalist elites would have stolen another election.

    Early in the Primary there were probably more Cruz supporters here than Trump supporters. Many of my friends here and elsewhere were strongly opposed to Trump but I do not have any acquaintances at this point who have not made the transition. Many were never were able to get behind Romney. Yet with Republican Party leadership we have the opposite situation. All were able to get behind Romney but they are still not giving Trump their full support and any little bump and many are ready to turn on him.

    To me this seems strange given the stark contrast between the two candidates.

    fireman15 to MarchonDC09122009
    I just met Monica Lewinsky at a conference last month and she looks completely healthy.

    I have no idea whether Monica has HIV. The middle of the National Enquirer issue has a readable photo of a memo with many blacked out names which says that “Monica apparently had a penchant for gay men.” and that one of them is now dead from AIDS. It mentions several other gay men with the names blacked out. I assume that the document is meant to cause the reader to speculate.

    Many people have been living with HIV for decades without any outward signs of illness, while others look like Bill Clinton does these days. The only direct statement made about Bill's health is that he has "heart trouble" which is on page 33. The NE has published an interesting 9 pages and claims that they say are based on 24 years of journals and a 2 year long investigation.

    The National Enquirer that came out today implied strongly that Bill has HIV and that Monica is the one who infected him. Apparently the guy she had been associated with before Bill came on the scene died of HIV as did other men she has been associated with over the years. Bill does look like death warmed over and they have reportedly been doing all they can to keep him fattened up.

    They had it at the Walmart near our home but not at the grocery store we went to, so I bought a copy to support their effort. It is actually a fairly convincing and detailed section of the paper. I don’t know how it will play out. Obviously the mainstream media is completely ignoring it; they are hoping that it will not catch on until after the election. But I think that it could have legs. I believe that the Cruz mistress story hurt him in the primary and this one seems to be better detailed and documented.

    I do know people who ARE citizens, and who don’t have the money to round up the money for the documents, or even purchase an ID. They aren’t voting. They want to but can’t.

    Whether you realize it or not you are quoting Democrat talking points. I am not sure what you are talking about? All you need to show you are a citizen is a copy of your birth certificate. In our state it costs $20 to get a copy of your birth certificate, in Kansas it costs $15... what does it cost where you live? In our society if people are not responsible enough to be able to save $20 or $15 for a birth certificate maybe they shouldn't be voting in the first place?

  • Debate over: IBM confirms that Macs are $535 less expensive than PCs

    10/20/2016 5:51:30 PM PDT · 63 of 87
    fireman15 to VanDeKoik; Swordmaker
    PCs are indeed less expensive to own than Macs. . . by a range of $273 to $1000 depending on the type of PC.

    The discussion here is completely irrelevant except within the very narrow confines of the article that Swordmaker posted. I have no idea about the actual expenses from the IT Department of a large corporation, and those expenses have no relevance at all to home users such myself or most of the rest of us on this forum.

    A few months ago I purchased a little Windows 10 laptop/tablet computer at Walmart for $99. It has a little 10” screen and a keyboard that can be removed. It came with a free version of Microsoft Office. It is great for creating Word Documents, surfing the internet and playing games.

    It is very handy and it has been used daily since that time without difficulties. Supposedly it was on sale, but it remained available for $99 for months. Currently they are $118, but I expect that they will be in the $69 range for Black Friday. I can guarantee that there were no comparable Apple products available that were not several times more expensive. And the situation has not changed.

    My primary laptop is a Lenovo and cost $399 six years ago. It gets used several hours a day and is still going strong. I was able to upgrade the processor to an I5 easily because the computer has access through the back panel. I also doubled the memory to 8GBs with no difficulty. The laptop also has a PCMIA slot that I have been able to use numerous cards to expand its uses. There were no comparable Apple products at the time that were not several times more expensive.

    So it is kind of interesting that in a corporate environment that Apple products can be comparable in expense over their lifetime, but it is completely irrelevant to myself and most other home users. This is especially true when we already have an investment in software compatible with the Microsoft operating system.

    The choices available to those of us using Microsoft operating systems are nearly limitless both in software and hardware. This matters when one is interested in peripherals such as PCMCIA "expansion cards", 3D Printers, CNC Routers and Milling Machines, eprom programmers, robotics, automotive analysis interfaces and so on and so on... This is not to mention open source operating systems and software which gives nearly limitless options to those of us who use hardware originally designed for Microsoft operating systems. If you are using Apple products your options in all these areas are severely limited by comparison.

    So yes, severely limiting your options by choosing Apple products may very well make sense in some corporate structures. But at this point I will continue to choose products that give me the most options and also can be found at a much cheaper initial cost.

    fireman15 to Ernest_at_the_Beach
    From the article, "Trump has called on Moscow to hack into Clinton's computers".

    That is an absolutely false statement. Trump never called on anyone to hack Clinton's servers which were already offline by the time he said anything about them. Trump said that if the Russian's had Hillary's deleted emails that he hoped that they would hand them over. Of course the Russian's have the emails and I am sure the Chinese, the Israelis, the North Koreans, the Iranians and a dozen other hostile foreign entities have them as well. But they are holding onto them because they will be a valuable tool to manipulate Clinton if she is elected. The proof that the Russians have nothing to do with this is that the 30,000 missing emails have not surfaced.

    Someone else said this so this isn’t my original thought, but maybe it was for the best that she was allowed to ramble on.

    The same thought occurred to me. I find her more grating than Obama at this point. Every other word coming out of either of their mouths is part of a shameless lie. But both of them seem to do better when they are out of the news cycle. So maybe, just maybe her rhetoric doesn't play as well with the average public school and Mainstream Media indoctrinated fool as the Democrats think that it does.

    fireman15 to TomGuy
    Wallace would allow Clinton to ramble on and on and on. Whenever Trump started giving responses that were a little too hot or discomforting, Wallace would interrupt him — usually after the first or second sentence of Trump’s responses.

    I suffered through the entire 90 minutes and this was my feeling also. No matter what she was asked... Clinton would look at her notes or whatever it was she had with her talking points on them and immediately go into one of her canned routines. Wallace would then let her prattle on for an annoyingly long period of time, to his credit on a couple of occasions he mentioned that she did not answer the question, in response she would just go into a different prepared routine that had nothing to do with the question.

    It made it difficult for me to judge how this would be viewed by the people who do not know much about what has been going on. Have any of the major networks covered the wikileaks disclosures or the Project Veritas videos? Just barely if at all... they have spent all their air time bashing Trump for his Billy Bush comments and the stream of women that the Clinton Campaign has trotted out.

    My feeling was that Trump was much easier to listen to and I wanted to hear what he had to say. I have never seen another Republican in front of at least 100 million Americans say what he did last night about the horrors of late term abortion and I was very proud that he had the guts to do it. Hillary annoyed the hell out of me every time she opened her lying over rehearsed mouth. But I wondered how the debate was playing with the “undecided” and the easily manipulated. We will find out and I am glad there will be three more weeks of Trump working his butt off and Hillary probably hiding out half the time.

    The words don’t matter. The tone does. Trump doesn’t come off like a ranting idiot. He comes off as assured and confident. The Bitch comes off like everyone’s nightmare of a nagging ex-wife.

    I agree with you completely, I think the tone is very important. I can't even stand to listen to her at all. I just hope Trump is speaking in terms that the average person gets. In some cases tonight he has said things that I understand completely, but largely because I obsess over this stuff. When you are speaking to your supporters they understand the code but people who rely on the MSM may not get it.

He has taken a lot of heat, death threats and considerable loss of income over his observations and support for Trump. I wouldn't place a lot of credence in his “endorsement” of Gary Johnson. At one point he also said he was “endorsing” Hillary for his and his family's safety. The Johnson “endorsement” is the same.

    Let’s just hope that the Democrats are buying into their own polls and that they decide not to use every nasty fraudulent voter fraud trick that they have and are overwhelmed by Trump voters at the polls. It was not a huge surprise that Romney or McCain lost. In hindsight it doesn’t seem like either of them had the will to win. Trump is a different animal altogether; he is a hungry lion and will continue to fight for all its worth until the end and beyond if there is evidence of fraud.

    fireman15 to TheShaz

    I have been buying Lithium Ion rechargeable cells for various projects for several years not to mention cell phone and computer batteries that have gone bad. As you say they have “the best power for size ratio” but they are a pain in the rump in so many ways. I have had them overheat and be destroyed. I have had them be destroyed by over-charging and conversely they have been destroyed just by letting them sit on the shelf too long and get undercharged. They can be destroyed if something bad happens to the built in circuitry that is suppose to protect them. I have many NiCad and lead acid based gel cells that are 20 years old and still functioning at a fairly high percentage of their initial capacity. But I have dozens of lithium ion cells that barely were used and have gone bad... a whole lot of of wasted dollars.

    It was inevitable that when applications such as hybrid and electric cars became more popular which use much larger batteries... that is would put a strain on the supply of lithium and the price would “necessarily sky rocket”. Why is it that the people and entities advocating for “alternative energy” solutions never seem to plan for the most basic concept of supply and demand? It is because at this time the entire “eco” game is all smoke and mirrors. Governments are using it to funnel billions of dollars into the pockets of their cronies while the real backbone of the energy based economy is going to be “carbon based” fuels for the foreseeable future.

    fireman15 to ken in texas
    One day, still before legal driving age, Dad told me to take the pickup to the dump to get rid of some stuff. A town cop happened to be there and came over to ask for my license and registration.

    My parents and grandparents also used to not only let us do stuff that would get them in trouble today, they would also sometimes asked us to do stuff that was maybe a bit questionable even back then.

    When I was about 7 my cousin and I were at Yellowstone National Park camping with my grandparents. My grandfather asked my cousin who was about the same age and I to paddle the canoe down a river that was behind our campsite into Yellowstone Lake that was about a mile away so we could go fishing. It was a slow moving river and in years past my grandfather had stayed in the same campground had taken the canoe up and down the river to the lake to go fishing. But for some reason this year there were signs at the campground that warned people not to take their boats out on the river. The signs did not say why and it made my grandfather mad.

    My cousin and I loved to paddle around in the canoe so we were more than happy to take the canoe out. But I was an advanced reader for my age and saw the signs. My grandfather just said that the sign didn't apply to kids, but even at that age I was a bit skeptical. So my cousin and I started paddling down the river.

    When we got to where the river opened up into the lake it got shallow and there was a herd of moose standing in the water eating weeds with their calves. Ahead and above us there was a big crowd of people taking pictures of the moose "herd" from a bridge. There was also an excited looking ranger who was running around making hand motions and yelling something at us. We couldn't understand what he was trying to say. My cousin and I didn't think anything about it; the moose just looked like weird horses to us and we paddled right through them without any confrontations and out onto the lake.

    When we got to where we had agreed to meet my grandfather, he was talking with a couple rangers. He had told them that we had taken the canoe for a joy ride and that “boys will be boys”. The rangers gave us a stern lecture about how we had just done something very dangerous and that our poor grandfather had been worried sick. We were savvy enough to go along with the story, so we all got let off with a warning from the rangers and got to spend the day fishing for trout with my grandfather. Afterward grandfather had to walk back to the campground and get the station wagon, while my cousin and I guarded the fish and the canoe.

We didn’t leave the property on motorized vehicles but we road our horses to town to get ice cream, hamburgers, and candy.

    I agree that it was a decent analysis from someone who admitted that he drove 300-miles because he thought that, “after a week of “Access Hollywood” tape replays and sexual assault allegations, Trump might finally be ready to completely blow his stack, start roaring and foaming and biting the heads off of members of the media.”

    So he admitted right off where he was coming from and then said that the media reported it completely different than what actually happened. It is a good observation and some of us shouldn’t be quite so quick to condemn those who are starting to see the truth despite their preconceived notions.

The name absolutely could not have been Jeb Bush, or John Kasich, Lindsay Graham, and to a lesser extent most of the others. The only one who brought it all together was Trump. The only one who clicked with the people in the primary by telling the absolute unvarnished and ugly truth was Trump.

    The crowds and excitement that Trump is able to muster day after day, even up here in the liberal Northwest demonstrate that the Democrat “ground game” is a myth. The crowds the Democrats get for the Clintons, Gore, Kaine, etc. is often measured in the hundreds and sometimes even less. What does this say about their “ground game” when Trump can draw tens of thousands day after day on short notice?

    People do not want to listen to the Democrats trash a good man with their constant over the top lies and scheming. That is the definition of a “scorched earth” campaign. They are always projecting what they do on others. It is getting pretty pathetic. I am glad that Trump is calling them on it every day.

    Those refrigerants were banned because they attacked the ozone layer, not because they had anything to do with global warming.

    Actually CFCs, chlorofluorocarbons are a different generation refrigerants that were banned to keep the “hole” in the ozone layer from increasing. They were replaced by HFCs, hydrofluorocarbons which the enviro-wackos are now claiming are “potent” greenhouse gasses. The “science” supporting their claims in both cases is dubious at best. It is now thought the “hole” in the ozone layer over the Antarctic is a phenomena that has occurred in the past and will continue to fluctuate in size in the future with or without chlorofluorocarbons. It is also a phenomena that is now thought to have little if any effect on people, animals, and plant life.

    This is cover for the Hillary campaign which is trying to divert the narrative from her misdeeds now being uncovered by these leaked emails. The amusing thing is that the Russians almost certainly have the “deleted” emails and this empty threat might actually cause them to release what they have.

    We owned a family lumber mill business. One of the lumber brokers we worked with came from a wealthy family and Trump reminds me a great deal of him. The broker didn’t seem particularly good looking to me, but he had a sparkle with women. This was in the early 1980s... he drove a Porsche and knew how to dress. He could read women like a book. He truly could get away with just about anything with women with absolutely no complaints from any of them. And these were beautiful women.

    That is the kind of thing Trump was bragging about with Billy Bush and the same type of things that I heard and witnessed with our lumber broker friend. He moved fast, but he didn’t do it with women that were not sending signals back indicating that they were receptive to his advances.

    I am sure that Trump was able to read women as well as our friend. I doubt whether he made advances on any woman that wasn’t receptive. Like our friend he didn’t need to or have any desire to pursue any woman who didn’t indicate that she was interested. That is why this woman’s claims do not seem believable to me at all, along with her story not adding up in the first place.

  • Wikileaks: Hillary Clinton Deleted At Least 16 E-mails To Sidney Blumenthal On Benghazi

    Hmm....see #59,,,,

    The info in #59 has been out for nearly a week. As I said in my post, I do not doubt that her servers were hacked and that several entities have everything that was on them. But that information is being held on to so that it can be used to manipulate her if she is elected.

    I am sure that the Chinese have it all, but do you think that they are going to help get Trump elected? Most multinational corporations would hold on to them as well. The Russians are a wild card. There is the possibility that a group unaffiliated with a foreign government has them but these groups are likely to look out for their own best interests which means selling them to the highest bidder.

    If any of the hackers can find those missing emails, it will be utterly devastating. Those emails were deleted because they show exactly why the US went into Libya.

    They don't need to find them, they are out there. Foreign entities, multinational corporations and the NSA have everything that was on Hillary's servers. They are holding onto them in case she wins the election so that they can use them for leverage. They are potentially worth billions of dollars. If Trump wins they are worth nothing.

    As voters we want someone who shares at least some of our values to be President. The people who have her emails and other information want someone who can be controlled. If the candidate is corrupt they like that even better because that guarantees they can be controlled. As far as the powers that be are concerned Hillary is a $5 whore who will do anything that they ask.

    So I doubt whether the “deleted emails” will be released. They are worth too much to those who have them and it is like an investment that they are holding onto. It will be an act of God if they are released before the election.

    I am not completely sure what is going on with Wikileaks, but I suspect the trickle is not for maximum effect but is merely the application of steady pressure to manipulate some type of concessions out of the Clinton's before the election. Assange is probably getting pretty tired of being holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy. At least Snowden is able to basically have some freedom of movement.

    I am not buying this. There already is not enough time to replace Hillary. I am certain that her server was hacked and that foreign entities have the emails, but if she is elected they will be able to use them to manipulate her. This goes for the Russians, the Chinese, the North Koreans, the Iranians, and even the Israelis. They all would love to have leverage over the President of the United States, and they know that someone as corrupt as Hillary can be controlled with much less. None of them want Trump; they wouldn’t be able to control him and they do not know what he would actually do.

    This is going to be a knock down drag out blood fest until November 8. And even after that we had better be ready to keep fighting. There is a good chance that with the massive amount of cheating that will most likely be taking place... that this thing may well be fought into next year. I do not expect Trump to roll over like Nixon did after Kennedy cheated. He will keep fighting if they try to steal it from him.
