Bet Trump tries to put thru Jack Kemp's inner city enterprise zones..'what have you got to lose..' :-)

Clinton is closer to "down to earth" than they usually admit each time she attempts standing up or walking.

I have long ago lost my marvel at TM reading the NYT. Still its beats the hell out of me doing so. Thanks buddy.

common man

A swing of 1.5% of the vote from the wicked witch of the East to Trump is a full 3% swing. Its not as far fetched as many make out for Trump to get this as that would be about 10% more of black votes than Romney got. Remember this when some liberal pundits scoffs at the prospect of Trump carrying black votes. He wont, but that is not the objective. And if Democrats were any good at math, it would terrorize many of the smug looks right off their faces.

Momto2

Trump is not writing off any votes - he wants them all and I like that!

Beasts of England

Did the Times note the standing ovation that Trump received?

I see the morons at Gonzaga University hired that mean, nasty and bossy Journalism Assistant Prof chick, Melissa Click, who got fired from the University of Missouri for being such a disgusting A-hole to some student reporter during some BLM protest, then claimed sexism. I hope Gonzaga winds up firing her and then she sues them in retaliation for Sexual Harassment, and that the Lawsuit winds up costing those Gonzaga imbiciles a fortune. They might as well have hired Ward Churchill---idiots.

Hello, JOM.

I would like to wish a happy birthday to our departed commenter and friend, bad, who passed away in 2010. She would have loved this election. She had a wonderful sense of humor and great optimism.

So to you, bad - Happy Birthday! Obama still sucks. :) And so does Hillary!

daddy

Today I got up very early and took a train into London and did a nice walking tour of the section of Rome that was the main City during Roman times. Fascinating, and had a great tour guide. Anyhow, was great to see that since the last time Momma and I did that town back in the 80's, they have located the ancient Roman Amphitheater beneath a new Museum/Art Gallery they were building outside the Guild Hall. Cool to go down and see what they discovered during the excavation. Apparently the amphitheater had disentegrated rapidly following the Roman pullout of Britain in 410 AD, and much of the Roman structure was pulled down so the bricks and stones could be used for other medieval structures, and what remained of the amphitheater basically became a big garbage dump. Of interest was that they dug up 2 bone carved Ice skates, that could be secured on ones foot by leather thongs inserted thru holes drilled in the bone tops. These were from about the 11th Century, but I was amazed to see them drom London.

I knew the Thames had frozen over a time or 2 in the 14th or 15th Century, but how interesting to see that it must have been cold enough back in the 1000's to warrant people having enough skill and know how to utilize ice skates. Very surprising and very cool.

Also I see via Drudge and Insty that there is a story up about Gay traffic lights in Trafalagar Square: http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/706789/Gay-traffic-lights-leave-pedestrians-confused-Trafalgar-Square

Well I went to Trafalgar Square and intentionally looked at about 30 traffic lights and I didn't see any gay stoplight at all---just a green guy walking or a red guy not walking on the crosswalk lights, and the regular red and green lights on the traffic signals. Hopefully the City Fathers and Mothers and Transgenders have come to their senses. The Gayest thing I did see was a guy in a kilt with a beard playing the Theme from Star Wars on the bagpipes. It's gonna'take a lot of ale to get that image out of my head. That's about it. Nice job Clarice! Hope Hawaii is great!

And here's something fun for the rest of us.

WordPress, the online retailer based in Louisville, has used sales numbers to predict all presidential elections since it opened in 1999. It has been correct every time.

In October 2012, Obama sales were leading Romney sales 48 percent to 42 percent, with 10 percent going to Johnson.

http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-10-07/news/ct-talk-candidate-merchandise-1007-20121007_1_pro-romney-pro-obama-mitt-romney

Obama ended up beating Romney by 4 percent.

Currently, Trump sales are beating Clinton sales by.......over 20 percent.

daddy,

The Thames also froze over from time to time during the 17th century to the early 19th century. They used to have "Frost Fairs" on the Thames with booths for food and ale. There were sledding and skating races on the frozen section of the river.

I imagine that sensible people were afraid to participate in the events. At one time, they walked an elephant onto the ice to reassure customers that it was safe.

Are they really, TK?

I can't imagine it. Is it just pique because Trump demolished their favorite candidate in the debates and primaries? He played hardball in a very cleverly crafted way we haven't seen in years. He gave life to the stodgy old Republican Party.

If they are watching Trump the last few weeks, they must see that he is a much more complex man than the media would have us believe. I just cannot understand why anyone of intelligence would vote for Hillary Clinton either by omission or commission.

Matt

It is just amazing how careless the Clintonistas were in this whole kerfuffle. You might even think it was on ppurpose, for goodness sake!

Hillary's next book will be titled ""It Takes a Crime Family"

"Watching out for the little people" and hanging out with the Oligarchs is a theme Trump needs to hammer her with.

I do hope it has become so obvious that even the dunderheads who instinctively pull the D handle are taken aback.

And Julian Assange is still out there with another data dump, and I'll bet it's not done on a Friday.

Robin, just knitting


Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

It strikes me that George W Bush was mocked endlessly by the Press for the phrase "Mission Accomplished" even tho' it was a phrase he had nothing to do with and was posted on a banner on an aircraft carrier upon the completion of their cruise which was involved in the combat attacks.

Yer the phrase came effortlessly off the lips of Chris Wallace 2 days ago when he was praising Hillary for beating the rap in the FBI interview.---"Mission Accomplished."

"Bush lied, people died!"

"Hillary lied, Mission Accomplished!"

So it goes.

Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist

Liar? Misogynist? What about Bill and his enabler Hillary putting the nation through the ringer by lying about Monica Lewinsky by name for 8 mos. before finally fessing up? Part of the definition of "misogyny" is mistreating a woman. Bill Clinton mentioned "Ms. Lewinsky" in his nationally televised initial lying performance and "Monica Lewinsky" in his nationally televised "Indeed I did" quasi-mea culpa months later. I don't remember him apologizing to her for anything either time. His and Hillary's actions insured her name would continue to live in infamy, as they drove away from the WH with stolen property on a crusade to enrich themselves. The heartless, self-centered chutzpah of both Clintons is beyond belief.

Threadkiller

It is something maryrose can't prove otherwise, Barbara.

Remember, she believes there is no such thing as #NeverTrump.

daddy

Barbara,

Thanks for the climate info on the Thames. It makes me think that in future no one will know anything that happened before the age of sound recording and video, because we are now pretty much a world of 24 hour instant media access, and future guys will probably rely only on what they can see and hear on video since it's so omnipresent and requires so much less mental effort than actually reading and studying dry lifeless texts of the ancients.

What will be the term for the brave new world we are now in to demarcate us from our non video ancestors? The Media Ages? And what will be the term for those unrecorded rubes? Beats me, but better we create the terms than let the Left come up with them as some subliminal variant of promoting their agenda.

Miss Marple 2

daddy,

It amazes me that the climate people ignore the Little Ice Age. Anyone who reads Regency romances knows about the Frost Fairs, which are often included as part of a plot. I can think of at least 3 book I know of that mentioned them.

Or, for anothr example, therre is an old children's book called "Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates." The plot is set on the long distance skating on frozen canals, which rarely happens anymore but yet is why the Dutch are still powers in speed skating.

You probably can't find that book in children's sections of libraries anymore, but it was a staple when I was a kid. Whitman even issued a glossy cover dime store edition back in the early 50's.

Barbara, somewhere along the line they became convinced it would be "beneath them" to vote for a crass, boisterous loudmouth. Backfill that with rationalizations and there you go, blinders pulled in tight.

Either that or it is in their financial self-interest to see the status quo maintained.

Buckeye,

The place

"along the line where they became convinced it would be "beneath them" to vote for a crass, boisterous loudmouth ... "

was when they started thinking and believing that he is a "crass .. loudmouth." I'll grant that he's boisterous from time to time, in a good way.b

But crass? I've never seen any evidence of same. When he talked nasty about Rosie O'Donnell, it was in reaction to the disgusting things she'd gratuitously said on tv about him, his business and his family. But being "crass" is not his nature, imo.

"So crude and unrefined as to be lacking in discrimination and sensibility"

rich

maryrose

yes and no. from a competitive stand point it is probably bad for football, but the ncaa being what it is, the schools that play the powerhouses it is a difference maker. 1.5 million dollars probably wouldn't run the University of Alabama Athletics department for a day, but makes a meaningful difference to Kent State. And you never quite know: The Citadel has surprised a number of now FBS schools (including the SEC) and how can we ever forget App State going to the Big House.

Beasts of England

It's not easy scheduling the filler games, according to a few folks I know who have actually been involved in the process. On the bright side, the schools get much-needed cash and exposure at the highest level. Schools such as East Carolina were whipping boys for a long time, but used the money and experience to climb the ladder...
