The GOP are still trying to say women lie when they claim sexual
assult. Even though  sex has been used by rich men to control
women in the work place for centuries. Many women have had to
give into being used for sex to get good jobs or to keep them. So
why should we be surprised when rich powerful men want to call them
liers. Many women are afraid to say anything for fear of ridicule or
worse. It is true that a few women falsely accuse men of assult for
money or some kind of pay back, but it's not very common, and
a lie of this kind is often found out.

It seems Fox News doesn't give Trumps rallys full coverage like they
have in the past. Appears Trumps ratings have fallen off. So Trump is
spending an hour a day on Fox trying to build his ratings up. Trouble
is who is running the country when Trump is out bragging on how
good he is? I can guarantee if Obama had spent an hour talking about
himself on tv, Trump and the GOP would have been raising heck about it.

Both major political parties have been guilty of trying to limit voting in the
past. That was why laws were passed to protect voting rights. Trouble is
the GOP got the supreme court to remove the requirement to get approval
for changes in voting rules by states or districts. Now when states pass laws
that limit voting, people have to file suit in federal court to stop laws that
discrimiate against minorities. I think this is one reason the GOP want
conservative judges in federal courts.

The GOP is working hard to  limit voting all across the country. They are
afraid of fairly competing with the democrats. So they have been trying
to limit voting groups who typically oppose the GOP. This may work in
the short term, but will seriously hurt the GOP in the long run.

President Trumps election was a big mistake for our country. Because he
has so many business interests around the world. These interests will take
presidence over national security. He is not going to give up millions if
not hundreds of millions putting sanctions against any country who is
making him even richer. No very rich man could be expected to not do
the same.

Trump has made huge sums of money from Saudi Arabia, so can
we expect him to shoot the goose who is laying golden egs for him?
I think not. This is why we should never elect another like him. He
is trying to say all the money they are spending is to much to put
sanctions on them. He claimed 109 billion. This is misleading as it's
mostly a promise to spend over several years.

He claims they would go to China or Russia if we stop selling to them.
I think not as they have been buying our weapons systems for many
years. So would be incompatable with anything they bought from
Russia or China.  They are dependant on us to keep their wepons working.

Just got  a CZ-83 in 9x17mm, needs a little refinshing work, it shots great...

I have a CZ-82 of 9x18 Makarov. Darn stamping of frame with importer and caliber info ruined the finish, but can hit a golf ball at twenty feet. Lucky to find spare mags in the bargain bin at Gander Mtn.

Bought a large lemonade at Mcdonald's.   :)

I removed the importer mark from my guns and redo the finish on them. I just picked up a Yugoslavia M-59/66A1 SKS with grenade-launcher...

The GOP continue to call those who speak out against them angry mobs. They don't
like it when women try to stand up for their rights. They seem to think women should
stay home and let them decide what is right, because women are too emotional to rule.
They know women are more willing to help the disadvantaged, and will spend the
money the GOP wants to keep for their rich supporters. One man in Las Vegas has
spent over 100 million dollars trying to help the GOP stay in power. Why? The GOP
saved him well over a billion dollars in taxes with their big tax cut last year.

President Trump likes to talk about how big his win was in 2016,  but it would have
only taken a football stadiump full of people voting in key states overall for his win
would have been a loss. Almost 3 million more people voted for H Clinton than for
Trump. This fact drives him crazy. So he claims it was due to ill eagle voting. If
the truth was known I bet Trump has had his lawyers check to see if he could declare
an election null and void. Especially if the GOP lost both houses of congress during
this midterm election.

Actually the only reason Trump won is because most people thought H Clinton would
win and didn't take the time to vote. It's this kind of thinking that hurts our democracy.
People thinking their vote doesn't count or listen to advertising paid for by big business
who have an agenda of their own.

Many people talk about how broken our government is. Well it's no wonder when only
6 people in 10 vote. When the voter allows the politicians tto decide for them selves
how to run our government, many will run it for their own benifit. The GOP being a
minority party works hard to limit voting. They know if people did vote they would be
lost in the chaff. Instead the GOP should working to grow their party, but they know
the majority of Americans oppose much of their agenda for the country.

It seems Trump isn't talking much about the hurricane, instead he continues to talk
about himself. Trump should be giving the airforce heck for not moving their jet
aircraft out of harms way. The damage to the air base in the panhandle of Florida
has been devastating. This is just a small part of the damage thousands of people
have suffered. Whole towns were wiped off the map. Trump should be doing nothing
but seeing that those people are being taken care of. Instead he has a party in the
oval office. I have a hunch the GOP is wringing their hands over Trumps inattention.

President Trump is complaining that the rise in interest rates are hurting the
economy. Well if Trump was as smart as he claimes he would know the federal
reserve is trying to limit a rise in inflation. But Trump is worried more about how
it affects him instead.

There are reports that Trump will fire the Atterny General after the midterm election.
Even to rplace the deputy atterny general as well. He apparently plans to replace
them with very smart friends who are loyal to him instead of the constitution.

A colonist from the Washington Post disappeared after entering the saudi arabian
embassy in Turkey. There is speculation that he was killed by a hit squad from the
government of Saudi Arabia. Trump claims he has people in Turkey investigating
the disappearance, but Trump and family are close friends of the Saudi leader so 
who can say how much of an investigation it is. After all Trump has been trying
to get loans from the Saudi Prince for his family.

Unfortunately the hurricane turned out to be a bad one. A terrible storm much
like a 200 mile wide tornado. Recovery will take a long time, but I wish
everyone affected all the best.

We have had 6 strong hurricains hitting the United States over the
past two years. Evidence shows global warming may be partly
responsible, but Trump and the GOP are denying it. This country
used to be a world leader, but with Trump and his GOP friends we are
becoming a laughing stock instead.

However our so called great president decided his rally was more important than
the people affected by the hurricane. Trump can't help but lie and make up stories.
He claimed he didn't want to disappoint the thousands of people who were expecting
him. Many of which according to Trump had waited all night in lie. Turns out no one
spent the night in line waiting for the loud mouthed lier. Trump even posted a picture
stole from a tweet made previously, trying to show the lines of people. That picture
showing people who were in line about 5 hours before Trump and not the previous
night as Trump claimed.

Thanks for the cider Kobuk :orbunny: But I think I will continue for a while with my
political news and opinions. There are 40 or more people who stop by every day.

This new hurricane is giving the Trump man a reason to grin. The people of the gulf coast
will get first class help with the election only a few weeks away. The last thing the GOP
or Trump wants is a bunch of people in GOP strongholds  mad at the government.

I hope the storm does little harm, but at least the people will get more help than those
poor U.S. citizens did in Puerto Rico last year.
