    Donald is first major presidential candidate to accuse his foe's family to be behind Kennedy assassination.

    This is impressive, even for a guy with a faux steak company.

    My mother-in-law is a Trump supporter. I got her a copy of the Warren Commission report as a Mother's Day gift.

    If I were Cruz, I'd be greatful that he's carrying on with this nonsense rather than talking about all the times I cheated on my clinically depressed wife.

    In the clip I heard, Trump didn't mention Kennedy at all - he just said Cruz's father was photographed with Lee Harvey Oswald (which apparently is true). Regardless of what was said, I'm sure Lyin' Ted will distort it the way he always does. For him to call someone else a "pathological liar" is a joke.

    1. build a wall that was already promised to be built in return for prior amnesties and other goodies
    2. Pushing for Tariffs on assholes who send jobs overseas where they don't have to follow our laws on safety, pollution, and labor, but can still get them sold here.
    3. Punishing those who employ illegal immigrants.
    4. Enforcing existing immigration law, rather than ignoring it and violating oath of office.

    The rest I have no idea of, I don't listen to his speeches. But the above would have more positive effect for low skill middle class and the working poor Americans than any minimum wage law. This issue is all that matters to them if the alternative is the present course . Which is why he has so much support. And opposition. It's the issue of the age.

    The other problem with a wall is it won't solve Mexico's problems and what happens when they don't have the emergency valve of the United States' economy?

    But here's the thing...
    1) he's not building any wall. And he couldn't, as president, FORCE any country to pay for it. It's ridiculous.

    2) he has and does use foreign labor to make his products

    3) he employs illegals to clean his hotels. I've stayed there and seen them (no, I don't have PROOF they're illegal, but we all know he deal)

    4) I'm totally for this but he's going to have A LOT of opposition from business

    1. I assume he would attempt to use his bully pulpit to get congress to go along with it. Of course a ny president faces the issue of having to get congress to go along. But if he were to win, other Republicans might see the handwriting on the wall of their careers and go along, fearing being voted out more than the loss of campaign contributions or bribes.

    2. Yeah, he wants to make a profit. If you're playing tag football and the other team gets to play tackle, you play tackle too if you want to win. Hypocritical, maybe. But nobody is ideologically pure. With an even playing field everyone can hire legally, pay more for labor, and not see themselves undercut, at least for domestic services. The biggest beneficiaries would be legal immigrants and blacks who want to work.

    3. Not every Latino or Asian cleaning rooms is illegal. But yeah, if he were knowingly hiring them, it'd be very hypocritical. I don't have any illusions about him being some great guy or dignified world leader.

    4. This might be a reason why he could get it done instead of bowing to them. He doesn't need their money. But again, it really comes down to congress too.


    It comes down to me agreeing 15% or 40% with most candidates. They all get a big F. If I were to bother to choose I'd have to choose the 40 over the 15.

    I hired Trump to build a wall in my backyard. He said it would be huge and he'd get my neighbor Phil to pay for it. He skipped town and never saw him again.

    Sad.

    Ivanka just arrived. Looking good. I asked if her dad ever tried to bang her. She smiled demurely and went about her measuring.

    Okay, wall will get built. Gonna be about 30 feet long and 10 feet high. Don's estimate says it will cost $3 billion. Seems high.
