    As posted already:

    :facepalm:

    Also, I'm relatively sure you posted a picture of a British policeman, not an American one since the badge on his hat appears to have a crown on the top.

    Picture of a British Scotland Yard Badge:

    You could have at least gotten a picture of an American policeman.... your forum skills are slipping! ;)

    Who would honestly vote for Trump? lol Sure he would make a great host for a new Jerry Springer type show.... but we're talking about him actually being President. Absurd. He is the greatest thing that ever happened to the Democratic Party though. He doesn't have a chance.

    His opponent defended a pedophile and laughed about knowing he was guilty when she got him off, has had people killed for political gain, covered up her husband's sexual assaults and ****s....


    But go on, vote for Hillary.

    Yeah... Trump will fix the problems :rolleyes:

    Dude is nothing but smoke and mirrors... He will sell out the working class in a millisecond if it means putting more cash in his pockets or one of his buddies pockets.. Just like he has done throughout his "real estate" career. I hope the "write in Bernie" campaign that folks are yapping about since he will not win the Dem nomination is successful. Not because I agree with him politically, but because if our country has to implode before the brainless voters get a clue, we may as well go ahead and do it full throttle instead of slowly sinking into it.... and make no mistake about it, both Clinton and Trump will do nothing but continue the same path that we are already set on sadly.

    Sanders is a socialist who doesn't even understand economics, all he'll do is thrash around and wave his hands in the air uselessly.

    I can't vote seriously in this election. Wasn't their a kid gaining traction for awhile under the pseudonym Deez Nuts? We might as well put some UO PVP'ers in the running.

    Lots of people get audited, taxes are complex. Just getting audited isn't an accusation of guilt.

    Sorry man.. but to me that rings about as true as the Hillary supporters who say, "Benghazi does not matter." and "The email investigation is not a big deal.".... TOOOOO often folks are blind to the wrongs when it comes to the candidate they support and only give a dang about the impropriety of the other sides candidates... sad commentary on our Country imho..

    If it was Hillary who was getting audited I'd say the same thing. You can't compare LITERALLY PEOPLE DIED BECAUSE SHE ****ED UP and "The IRS wants to look further into your tax return"

    What kind of ****ing nutjob comparison is that?

    Fully agree. It just seems like once folks make up their minds which person they are voting for they forget (or are oblivious to) the fact that their person is only slightly less evil than the other one...

    I actually agree with Aran about the audit thing, just being audited doesn't mean you did anything wrong.

    I was audited three consecutive years and didn't do anything wrong. I learned that the IRS throws audits at people as a form of extortion, and I say that in complete seriousness.

    It went like this:

    Year 1: I got audited, so fought it knowing I did nothing wrong. After about a month of dealing with them on a near daily basis they agreed that I was right and let it go.

    Year 2: I got audited again, so fought it again knowing I did nothing wrong. After another month of dealing with them nearly daily they once again agreed I did nothing wrong and let it go.

    Year 3: I got audited yet again, but this time had a lot going on in my life, was extremely stressed, and didn't have the time to spend another month fighting them. Even though I still did nothing wrong, I just agreed to pay them the money they claimed I owed (it was like $1,200 or something).

    It has never happened again, and it's been 11 years.

    It's extortion, in all honesty. They harass people non-stop just because they can, until the person agrees to pay them money that isn't actually owed.

    IRS audits mean less than nothing to me after that whole ordeal. It wouldn't surprise me at all if they were simply trying to extort money out of Trump now that he has become the center of attention.

    I've reached a point where I don't truly like (or trust) anyone running for any office. However, I will be voting, and my mantra is, "Absolutely anyone is better than Hillary or Bernie!"

    Trump is not going to make America great again. What experience does this man have running a country or even politics in general? Running a country and dealing with Congress is nothing like running a corporation. As a CEO you have total dictatorship. As president you are part of a democratic process and must gain consensus. What exactly is he going to do to 'make America great'?

    Hillary is a true politician. I don't personally care much for her. But at least she is experienced. Who gives a rip if she had her own email server? That argument is politics at it's finest.

    And even though Bernie didn't make it, I like what he had to say. Unfortunately the man is delusional. There is no freaking way that he could implement the programs he touts (not during my lifetime). I would love for my kids to get a free college education. And I'd love free healthcare. But it's just not going to happen anytime soon.

    Ok forget the hillary email thing if people think that isn't a legitimate blunder let this slink in your skull filler for a bit.


    She is implying the government makes jurbs. Now government created jobs are funded by tax dollars.

    Let's think about that for a minute and examine Bernie Sanders. He believes a 90% taxation "of the rich" is not too much. He believes if you have more than 1 car then you need to give that or those in some cases to other people (read: the government will take them away and redistribute them to other people conveniently for you). He has his face on underwear with a slogan that says "feel the bern". Oh yeah, way to identify with me bro. Way to go.
    [​IMG]

    Then we can take a look at the Trumpster. The Trump. Trumpmeister.
    Trump thought his sister would make an excellent Supreme Court Justice. Now whether this be the case or not, Trump is running as the Republican candidate. Now, there are sub titles associated with that, and we're to believe he's running as a "Conservative" republican. Historically it has been the stand of a conservative republican to stand against abortion (there are some cases like health of the mother/****/incest) where it has been morally grey for whatever that is worth. His sister is hardcore pro abortion, I'm talking like liberal style on it, parents do not need to know their 13 year old daughter has had an abortion because she skipped school to party with the football team and got pregnant etc. She is extremely liberal. If you look at Trump historically, he's all over it as a liberal himself.
    Don't take it from me, just listen to him for yourself.

    In decades past, I believe the year was 1927, a failed "Socialist" candidate by the name of Norman Thomas finally gave it up.. He saw his time was not there yet. But he had this to say, think of it as a lesson for socialists to learn from. "The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of "liberalism" they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened."

    If you look this quote up on the internet sites will now try to 'debunk' he said this, let me refer you to a book called "The Book and The Right" by Maynard Millard, I think you'll find what I'm saying on page 227. I could be off, it's been years since I read it. But I bring this up because I think people are onto Liberals enough now they hiding out in the Conservative Republican crowd and corrupting that 'platform'
    Right now our government isn't even running on any level of conservatism, and if it is, I'm sitting here wondering exactly what you can point me to that isn't smoke and mirrors to give the idea we aren't at least 60-70% socialized. Things like Social Security, Federal Income Tax, Property Tax, Obamacare, Section 8 Housing, Foodstamps. Blah.

    I don't trust any of them. But this.. [​IMG] this you can trust.make stratics great again..

    Sadly they have been for a while, the idea of limited government, and more personal freedom doesn't have to mean run your platform on the legalization of drugs and running folks like rand Paul as your prime candidate.

    I work in private audit and financial reporting for hedge funds and private equity groups. 75% of my clients who make 7 figures get audited EVERY YEAR. That's the IRS just making sure they aren't getting shorted on their tax bill.

    What about General Eisenhower? He did fine as President.

    CEO's are not dictators. They answer to, and serve at the discretion of, a board of directors who are elected by share holders.

    Hilary is a true piece of hot garbage. How can you say she has some type of special experience but Donald doesn't? Donald has run several multi-billion dollar companies and done it in a successful fashion. Before he became famous, he was the master at renegotiating debt and turning around some properties that he bought which would have otherwise been liquidated. Hilary accomplished nothing during her time in the US Senate - voting and running your mouth does not equal experience. Her time as Secretary of State was a disaster. Aside from the Benghazi incident, Iran's relative strength to the rest of the world grew exponentially. Russia did whatever the hell it wanted. Our special relationship with England fell to it's lowest period in 150+ years and our standing with Europe was no better off than it was under Bush. China continues to pound our rear end on trade policy, not to mention, relentlessly steals our technology without any repercussion. How is that anything positive to hang your hat on?

    You're right about Bernie being delusional - hence Donald's nickname of "Crazy Bernie" is sticking.

    Yes, there are definitely Libertarian wack jobs. There are also GOP kooks and Democratic crooks. Nice job playing to the up side considering the field everyone is running. If I said I was pleased with any choice at this point I would be lying.

    What happened to the discussion of a flat tax in the campaign cycle?

    I'm sure there are some defining moments in both areas where there is agreement, and where there is not. Fiscally conservative and socially liberal is an actual thing. And, about 50 percent of voters are registering as independents. I'm not here to win followers for anyone. A discussion of issues that folks find important would be refreshing.

    I hear you there... At our ages (at least judging from the Uhall thread lol) we are all pretty much set in our ways.. I mean it's not like anyone is going to say something on an internet game forum that makes anyone else suddenly go, "Oh CRAP!! I have been wrong all my life. Let me change my opinion."

    Politics is always a difficult subject to navigate, especially when you really don't enjoy offending anyone. That said, I'd like to offer something to those who may believe Hillary Clinton's email server isn't important -- a brief excerpt from a June 2nd article by Judge Andrew P. Napolitano:

    "Late last week, the inspector general of the State Department completed a yearlong investigation into the use by Hillary Clinton of a private email server for all of her official government email as secretary of state. The investigation was launched when information technology officials at the State Department under Secretary of State John Kerry learned that Clinton paid an aide to migrate her public and secret State Department email streams away from their secured government venues and onto her own, non-secure server, which was stored in her home.

    The migration of the secret email stream most likely constituted the crime of espionage -- the failure to secure and preserve the secrecy of confidential, secret or top-secret materials."


    The full article goes into much more detail. Based on facts revealed to date, it simply isn't possible to view Clinton's actions as excusable in any way. Combined with the rest of her long political and private track record, I've come to the conclusion that she is a serial liar, a cold and dedicated manipulator motivated by self-interest, and unquestionably unfit to be President of the United States.

    Since about the start of the 1st Clinton administration, (I was about 11 or 12 or so) I have not once seen a candidate I would have supported had I been old enough to vote at the time, up until I saw Ted Cruz run this campaign, and I would have voted for him, and even he was a little more shady than I'd prefer, but we need a very stout conservative in office to stop the railroad of full on liberalism. Terms like 'one world' have destroyed the idea of national sovereignty, our borders are no longer a real thing. Trump is very studied and has a VERY correct idea of what strong conservatives want foundationally, of course secure our
    borders, focus on producing something anything really instead of importing everything, but if u study his history, and see what he says and what he always leaned on politically, u will see he is pretty lefto. He is not somebody I would vote for if I had choices, but Hillary and Bernie don't even pretend to be non lib, this election is really terrifying. Obama is going to push for ambassador of un after he gets out, and everything he's done has been tobweaken American economics, lower our militarybforce, and more greatly strengthen the un. And all we get tonrwplace him is a selection of libs.
