    You are right to be cautious. Hitler moved into Austria and then Czechoslovakia because Germany was out of money. Hitler's rearming of Germany and the infrastructure projects used up a lot of money. Annexing these countries provided foreign exchange cash and gold. The money went to Germany and was replaced with monopoly money. This was enough money to run their rearming for 2 years. Additionally, the Czech arms industry went straight to Germany, They made excellent small arms ammunition and tanks throughout the war.

    I think that you may have missed the open mike tape where Kerry says that he'd love to have a war with Russia. If we weren't broke, we'd be fighting them right now.

    Dave remember the world was in the great depression in the 1930's even Germany so the money angle don't work here our economy a little better than the 1930's today. It's about not being bluffed once you show weakness like Trump will do playing nice guy to Putin you have lost your edge your ex military you know the game. Our military still better than Russia there only aircraft carrier has to have a ocean going tug along any were it goes incase it brakes down all we got to do is not show weakness. Not shake Putin's hand like you want to do and put our tail between our legs.

    Now Trump wants security clearance for his kids WTF there was a saying in WW2 loose lips sinks ships young kids lets stuff slip out to friends in talk with out even knowing it. It's on a need to know bases and they don't need to know use to have a clearance at one time . Maybe good to know some stuff for the stock market and make money on the side. Hope Trump realizes this is a bad idea and what the public will start thinking about this no other President ever made a request like this before they knew better.

    At least he's asking. You think BHO or HC asked? Crap, they were giving intel to movie directors and letting maids handle classified material.

    It's not uncommon for senior military and political leadership spouses and advisors be granted special purpose access clearances, it's not always on a 'need to know' basis; more like the ability for the spouses to travel with them and of course to avoid 'pillow talk'.

    I had a security clearance just because I worked in the S4 section of my battalion in VN. In those days the FBI actually send a couple of agents out and looked into your character. There would be no problem with them giving a SC for level Confidential to Trump's entire family.

    Trump is infinitely better than Hillabeast. She is a moral and ethical dumpster fire. She and Barry don't know squat about things military and treat their information in a cavalier manner. Trump SAYS bad things Clinton DOES bad things.

    On the flip side, DJT has how much experience of things military ?

    Speaking solely of things political, DJT has not yet had the opportunity to do bad things.

    I agree. I had to be cleared to Category 1 for my work at Camp David. A couple of agents visited my friends, family and neighbors to check into me as I needed to be cleared to have a loaded weapon around the President (and had knowledge of how security worked at Camp David). If I had any of the associates those two had I never would have been cleared.

    There will be plenty of anti Trump ammunition coming out for the next year. I find it hard to believe that a guy with that many chestnuts in the fire all over the world would take it upon himself to make sure some little old lady was screwed over, but you can believe what you want, it isn't going to stop. I don't suppose that you've spent an equal amount of time looking into that foul mouthed fetid old bag you voted for? It might not be as bad as screwing an old lady out of her house, but Hillary did sell off 25% of the US' uranium reserves to the Russians for a bribe to her husband's library. They also collected millions for Haiti hurricane relief and used about 5% to give to the natives while selling the entire cell phone contract to a rich pal for a few hundred thousands in bribes. They are so crooked that a guy wrote a book about it "Clinton Cash". It isn't popular with the people who ignore stuff like this and swoon at the sight of the Clintons. By the way, they did lose. And since we are a republic and not a democracy, popular votes didn't carry the day for the folks who screwed over Bernie Sanders. The best person for the office was a democrat, former Marine LT and Sec of the Navy, James Webb. He took one look at what was going on and walked, as I would expect anyone with any sense would. He would have been elected in a heartbeat.

    Dave lets just say they are both crooks you saw the video with his own words it'd not made up but true remember this could of been your mom or grandmother a little old lady and that was OK for you. Ether one who got elected I believe will end like Watergate just a mater of time. I know you like less government he used more government to try to use Eminent Domain with the local city government to work with him saying they can make more taxes with out her ugly little house being there and tear it down for a parking lot and that's OK what would you do if some one wanted to do it to your house what would you do if the government came in and wanted your house because some rich guy wanted it ?. There is a saying does a leopard change it's spots Trump the same then as now.

    Maybe hillary didn't bring up the issue of eminent domain because she was a little worried that Eugene Pfeifer III might turn up at one of the debates.

    I'm with you man! I'm so sick of people defending either of these assholes! I didn't vote for either of them, and neither should anyone else. They were both lackluster candidates that will do nothing to help our country or the "little guy".

    That's hardly what I meant. Just that neither of them were a good choice. People in this country are too occupied with Democrat vs. Republican without thinking about anything in a nuanced manner. And because of that, I fear that candidates moving forward will continue this trend of general shittyness. Maybe Trump will do a good job. I seriously doubt it though. Clinton would have done just as horrible a job as the last 3 presidents.

    One of the two was going to win, buffoon or sociopathic liar. Fortunately enough people chose the buffoon over the liar. I like owning guns and did not want to be criminalized for doing so.

    I'd say it was sociopathic liar or sociopathic liar, but I take your point. I too like owning guns (and know many people that voted for Trump on that issue alone), but we're screwed if people continue to let our options be people such as these two. Voting for someone based solely on one issue still reinforces that options like Trump and Clinton are acceptable.
