  1. Donald Trump running for president


    I just saw Trumps announcement that he is running for president, I also just saw where he's being dropped from selling his clothing line from a large clothing chain and he was fired from NBC. Any thoughts on him running for president? Does he have a chance?

  2. Doesn't matter really. Presidents don't actually run sh*t they are just put up front while the main people run the world.

  3. That's true, but I do think it matters who the face of the country is. If the president is more of a liberal then things like universal healthcare is passed and gay marriage is made legal and if they are more conservative there is more focus on things like education and illegal immigration.

  8. think he blew his chance about 2 mins into his campaign.

  9. Trump is a brilliant businessman. People may call out his past bankruptcies, but make a note those were corporate bankruptcies. He has never filed. He is a shark with a keen sense for smelling blood and making money.

    Realistically he would be an efficient leader but one that would perform poorly in a nation with such a large passion for helping the little guy and minorities right now. He would help the economy though, probably just not through routes most people would like. Then again most people have no understanding of how business works.

    In the end though I would never vote for the guy.

    My opinion on trump is that he's a business man, I don't think he would do well as a political figure. especially not as president. Does he have any political background?

    No he does not. Then again political background equates to an in depth understanding of the manipulation system we have in place and public relations. Nothing more.

    How much political background did Obama have. State senator, 1 term US Senator. maybe we need someone that's not tied to the political machine.

    Personally, anyone that gets the establishment republicans and democrats scared enough they feel like they need to destroy them is a good start. Trump is a straight shooter, knows about the economics involved without relying solely on advisors, and can't do any we worse than Obama and his radical college buddies that have been calling the shots lately.

    How exactly is he a straight shooter? I watched his presidential run speech and he just seems like a bored rich guy.

  16. Is that speech the only time you've ever seen Trump speak? Maybe you missed the part of him telling the truth about illegal aliens, that started the ruckus you opened the thread about. That's pretty damn straight talk. Which of the other candidates on either side have ever talked about a major issue like that? None.

    Personally I think military service should be required in ones past myself. If you are going to be making choices that affect the lives of millions you should know the value of life.

    No, it's not. He's been all over TV pageants and shows. I mean that's your opinion, I personally don't agree that every illegal immigrant is a rapist and a thief.

  20. He said that Mexico is sending us the people with problems. Bringing drugs and crime. But he assumes that some of them are good people.

    Here's the transcript.

    He is one of the few that gave a speech that wasn't full of bumper sticker platitudes, yet talked about actual problems we are facing that none of the others are willing to try and tackle, let alone talk about.

  22. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.

    What part of that was factually inaccurate or even inflammatory as has been made out by the media?

    I'd love to read the statistics on immigration and a break down of the crime rate if you could provide it.
    I'm sure at the republican debate it will get brought up again, hopefully he will go more in depth on the subject.

  25. Go ahead and look it up. This should be treated like the stupid confederate flag debate. Meaning everyone is so distraught and up in arms over 1 stupid kid that was racist. Here's one that was deported multiple times.

  26. I agree there, I don't see how all of the sudden the confederate flag is overly offensive. That kid was insane.
    Besides that one case, I would like to see the stats on the immigrants from Mexico and the said incline in rape and theft and crime.

    The face of the country is the face the powerful want everyone to see. The president is just an actor. Good 'ol George W could not be as stupid as he made out. Everything was written for him, to serve a purpose.
    "I know how hard it is to put food on your family." LOL The person who wrote this stuff is a comic genius.
    Obama wants gun control. Democrats are known for that right? So they need a democrat to push for it.

    This says 95% of arrest warrants issued in LA are for illegals

    1. That there is a significent immigration issue involving Mexicans

    2. That the majority of Mexican illegal immigrants are criminals and/or rapist

    Both are factually inaccurate

    Immigration trends do not correlate with violent crimes and the net immigration from Mexico past few years has been zero.

    Unless you have evidence to dispute this... evidence besides, "I just know", please
