Annemarie,
I know that. 
I just read an article in a German news magazine about the global phenomen of right-wing politicians and that their supporters often feel that everybody else does much better than they do. The loosers of the financial crisis have something in common, and that's the same foes: the establishment. And the press which is lying to them. And of course elections who don't end in the result they want, so they have to be faked. They see their own reality and ignore the facts. All aliens / refugees are rapists, terrorists and are criminal, no matter if you know any of them. All politicians and therefore part of the establishment are corrupt and lie to them.

Of course there are peoole who do better than I do. My sister's former boyfriend once accused me for earning more money than he does (I still don't know how much he earned, but since I work for the government, our wages are public). My reply was: You left school when you were 15, started training and earned money from that point on. I went to school until I was 19, went to university and started earning money when I was 23. Until my parents needed to support me because I had no income and needed to live in another city which wasn't cheap. So I would suggest that it's only fair I have a better salary. We can always discuss if the difference is fair, but it's always difficult to wage the value of everybody's work. And you always have the choice to go back to school to get a higher degree, to go to university and make more money, that's your choice!
His respond was: "I done with school, will never go back. " "That's your decision, but don't mourn other people's income". "But that's not my fault, I just didn't find the right school, my teachers didn't see my talents."

It's always somebody else's fault...

I will just never understand why these angry, bitter, has-beens who want Trump to make America great again, don't see him as part if tge establishment and the system. I mean, somebody who's proud of not having paid taxes for years and is responsible for a couple of bankrupties and hasn't paid bills, is also responsible for other people's loss of jobs, loss of houses and bankrupties of banks...

So I would see Trump as part of the problem, not as the solution...

ladybug - Mike Huckabee may be a "we the people" candidate - but only for people who believe as he does. There are many US citizens with the same rights as his but different beliefs., He wants to change the laws so that we all live the way he thinks we should. Sorry. I want a "live and let live" candidate.

You can't believe everything you read.  Corporate Business owns the Washington Post.  Sounds like a move by Corporate Business to discourage the Gov. Mike Huckabee "we the people" write in vote.

What I mean is I want a candidate who is happy to live his/her own life as he/she wants and is able to let others do the same. My feeling is that as long as you aren't actually hurting anyone else, your life is your business - not mine.

And before anyone says that's fine, except for abortion, please understand that I believe no outsider should insert themselves into the most intimate, difficult decision of a woman's life. Also, I find it difficult to find common ground with people whose interest in those "unwanted" fetuses ends at birth. If it's so important that these children be born, then it should be equally important that they get loving, nurturing care throughout their lives, Why, then, are so few of them adopted by people who were so insistent that they be born? Why, once they're born, are we so reluctant to spend a few dollars to see that they get whatever help they need? IMO there's a lot of hypocrisy surrounding this issue.

I asked because I liked your statement "live and let live"

I use to say democrats want to kill the unborn and republicans want to kill the living (pro guns/pro war).

Gov. Huckabee has great economic solutions.   I also think he will stand tall on the international conflict we face.  I am pro-life do you think we can agree to disagree and work together on things that affects all of us, like the economy?

We have a better chance of living with someone who has NOT been in the midst of international conflict.  Gov. Huckabee walks into office without any connection to past international conflict.  Something to think about.

Yes saw that carolhathaway. Its overwhelming to remember all the negative and derogatory comments this excuse for a man has made since he began his sorry campaign.

I'm hoping that not only will Hillary get a majority of the vote on Election Day but that she will win by a huge margin to send a strong statement to Trump, the Relublican party and to those people who believe America is broken that we don't buy it. And we are not going to solve our problems by scapegoating and pitting different groups of people against each other.

PAN and fava - Re: Trump rape charges - I find it odd that when Bill Cosby was accused it was all over the media for weeks. There was no escaping it, and he's just an actor. Trump is running for PRESIDENT and there's hardly a word in the media about this.

I wonder if it's because the media are afraid of repercussions. Whether he gets elected or not I'm sure they anticipate lawsuits if they give the story full coverage. I only hope they can prove the case in court and send him to jail forever. He's done enough damage already.

I think the rape case against Trump is not based on too many facts. Questionable witnesses. Here's a Vox article that goes into the many sexual assault charges against Trump. Check out the last section which specifically addresses the rape accusation. At this point it looks as if the case is pretty weak with questionable witnesseswho don't want to reveal their identify. May explain why the press and the Clinton campaign don't want to touch it ... at this point.

It's a horrible story if it's true.  And with a minor no less!  What reasonable woman would want to admit to being raped or assaulted?  Why would any woman want to go through the assault a second time ... meaning the interrogations, the questioning of the woman's character, etc. if it wasn't true.  Especially in the case of assault accusations against a celebrity. A woman will be dragged through the mud by high powered lawyers and the media.

I wouldn't put it past Trump to have committed this heinous act. His lack of basic respect and his extreme misogynistic views of women play right into this type of behavior. You can say what you will about Hillary Clinton but she has empathy and care about others. Trump doesn't have an empathetic bone in his body. He cares only about himself and how he can manipulate any person or situation to ingratiate his own image.
A disgusting and horrible human being.

I was in NYC lat week... flicking through the news channels at an un Godly hour early in the morning.....I think it was on Fox or CNN I watched a very brief interview with Giuliani, it must have been about 5/6am (NYC time) beginning of last week, I don't know the day exactly......

Giuliani salivated as he talked of what was coming down the line at Hillary over the next week....HE KNEW.....I'd put my life on it, he knew about the FBI....4 or 5 days before it happened...Check it out it you can....


If I were Hillary I'd call Rudy out on that....Very fast...Very publicly....


PS. not sure but I think the interviewer asked if what was coming was more email stuff.....I might be wrong on that...but I do remember I never seen so many teeth...his smile was HUGE....go see...

Well FBI staff were apparently prepared to leak the info. So as a former prosecutor he may have contacts and a heads up. Or at the Wall Street Journal who were already preparing an article according to some.  Rudy been very unhinged this last year.  Hope he goes into obscurity after this election.

Fava - Why would the FBI "leak" anything?  Do the FBI see Hillary as a threat to the United States?  Do you think Hillary's pledge to bring 55,000 Syrian refugees to the United States have anything to do with FBI concerns?

No, I don't think it has anything to do with Syrians.  But the FBI has leaked a bunch of info over the last 5 days.  I think it has to do with lower level analysts who are heavily invested (and perhaps myopic) in what they are investigating being overruled--often with justification--by those at the top.  I understand this is very common in the investigation/prosecution cycle.  A detective conducting an investigation may not understand why a prosecutor says there is not enough evidence to prosecute.

Donald dumb has said that Hillary is a bad role model for his son and the nations' youth. 
Since your role model should be your parent, I feel sorry for this boy.

I think Comey is getting much more credit for his decision than he deserves. I don't think he was getting ahead of a leak, and I don't think it was a leadership decision to protect the agency. I'm convinced the man is a duplicitous Republican partisan who was trying to sway the election, if not for Trump then certainly against Clinton.

He intentionally fed the e-mail fire by damning Clinton with faint praise at the Congressional hearings, rather than just saying, "There is nothing criminal here, and we're done." He then went against policy and the advice of his own high-level staff to notify Congress (Republicans first, I might add) of the renewed e-mail investigation. 

And now we find out that he himself decided not to announce the preliminary investigation into Trump's former campaign director's (Manafort) ties to a Russian bank, which included communications from the campaign computers, because it was too close to the election -- precisely what he had been advised against on the e-mail BS. The decision on the Trump campaign was Oct. 7th; the Clinton e-mail disclosure came Oct. 28th.

So... Oct. 7 is too close to the election, but Oct. 28 is okay. What kind of sense does that make? None.

It actually looks good for him for people to say he was just covering his ass. I think his motive was a lot more nefarious than that.
