Well, I know they still burn witches in PNG but I think the Salem witch trials are a bit distant to be driving any sort of politics in the USA these days!

I like how porn freaks and masturbators get separate mention. But what is a 'cutter'? Someone who doesn't want Comcast?

Someone who self-harms I think.

 

It's a rather arbitrary list of 'offences' methinks.

I think they are circumcised, masturbating porn freaks with blisters on their hands. Unless we are talking in the female context in which case they could be a "cord" cutter, preferring the freedom of batteries rather than a direct connection to the mains!

 

Regardless, there are many areas in the states that still live with a strong medieval influence about what is considered right or wrong.

Prelude to the presidential debates.     Both candidates get some tough and easy questions from the interviewer and guests at the forum.    The forum was held on an old aircraft carrier.

 

These videos are on Youtube and run for around 26 or 27 minutes.     Hillary did not fall over or have a coughing fit.    Donald did not nut off at anyone.     So pretty much a draw after watching both videos IMO.

It's perfectly fine to post YT links on here, provided it's not a link to anything that violates the rules. There's even a BBcode for it. smile

Inserted using bbcode.

I have not watched these but saw a clip of the Trump one. Something like:

Interviewer: What makes you qualified to be commander in chief?

Trump: I've been to a lot of countries, I've done business in those countries, America gets a terrible deal from those countries, I've done great deals, great deals..

The video of Hillary Clinton collapsing and being helped into the black van could be very damaging to her campaign.     She has been diagnosed as having pneumonia but this news was only released after the incident at the 911 ceremony.

 

When Gerald Ford fell down the steps of Air Force One it made him look clumsy but he had bad knees from playing American football & it was something that most Americans would have understood, & totally different to the image that Hillary portrays.

 

Trump  sensibly said he knows nothing about the incident, leaving it to the supporters to post and repost the video to Youtube and elsewhere.

 

This election contest is going to get even closer very soon!

The way this has been panning out over the past couple of weeks has me, an atheist and skeptic, almost starting to believe apocalyptic end of times prophecies...

 

Latest is Clinton's pneumonia / fainting - the answer to Trump's prayers to whatever it is he prays to.

It's also something for which the image (of perceived frailty) is going to be very hard to credibly refute - it will endure.

 

Unfortunately it's probably going to matter more as a rumour - than the facts about Trump, that he's a serial liar, a racist, a misogynist, a "birther",  has a very dodgy past in his business dealings, endorses hacking by the Russians, is against free-trade, won't release tax records etc.

This one really scares me. Maybe Hillary should bring Tim Kaine into the limelight more to reassure people.

Stand by for a video of Trump playing soccer or softball with his grandchild, grand nephew/niece etc to emerge!    Imagine if it were Rubio against Clinton, he'd have his whole family doing something like indoor climbing on  a rock wall, beach volleyball, anything to emphasise his comparative youth.
