Mr. and Mrs. Khan's presence and speech at the DNC was a great moment to talk about American exceptionalism and also a wonderful bait for Trump. If Trump was a non-narcissistic non-sociopath person his response would have read something like this. "I want to express my condolences to the Khan ...Jump to post
A dead soldiers family shouldn't be treated any different from any other family. The family member made a conscious choice to serve, if they die, tough, it's part of the job description.

All of Texas has benefitted from the oil boom of 2000ish to 2015ish. Now with the oil bust, who knows? Frankly, I find DFW and HOU metros to be rather soulless concrete jungles akin to Los Angeles.

Too much authoritarianism does the same thing. Ever seen how corrupt most one party states are? As a free democratic western nation, it's very, very, hard to understand real corruption.

Same thing with the hack of the DNC. Could have been plenty of ammunition against HRC and the DNC; people really doubted the DNC's Russian claims.

I watched the Khan speech at the DNC, and when it was over I turned to my spouse and said: "That's going to leave a mark". Had Trump handled it correctly it would have been a 24 hour story.

Trump is trying to be Putin's fluffer so that either outcome he will gain financially. If he loses, he will use all that goodwill to finally get a tower built in Moscow. If he wins, he'll have his kids running Trump Inc. over in Moscow trying to finalize a deal before he's even sworn in.Jump to post

One more thing, though Trump is an INCREDIBLY inept politician (well, he's not really even a politician, is he?), equating him with the global monster Adolph Hitler is just off the wall.

The problem is, America's Constitution is relatively old, comparatively. America's is 240ish years old. If I remember right, the bulk of Canada's is around 1867, some 100 years later. (??)

It is the one thing the Republicans have done well, vilifying HRC for 25 years to a level not seen by many (any?) other politicians, and yet have failed to actually find any proof of all the evil deeds she's been accused of.
