When was our last military parade? Do you think it’s a good thing to spend money on? How do we benefit from it ? We don’t already know we have the strongest military?

Our last military parade was post-Gulf War.

No, one-third of African Americans don’t support Trump. Not even close.


Interesting. Were the Rasmussen numbers merely an outlier?

All of the polling services you listed were and are way off so there’s that. Rasmussen was the most accurate in 2016

I could see some justification for having a parade this upcoming Veteran's Day for the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI. If it's punted to next year, I'd rather pass until the 100 year mark of WWII's end.

Outside of France's Bastille Day parade, it seems like virtually all other large scale similar events are in authoritarian countries such as Russia, China and North Korea. In their day, such events were prominent in Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Unless it's to commemorate a special milestone for a major military victory, I think I'd take a hard pass on parading troops and wares around.

I like this idea by Trump and it's a prime example of how he takes on the status quo:

https://ca.news.yahoo.com/sec-asked-...5--sector.html

U.S. President Donald Trump asked securities regulators to explore replacing quarterly reporting requirements with half-yearly filings at the urging of executives including PepsiCo Chief Executive Indra Nooyi, reigniting a debate about how often companies should give financial updates to investors.

Such a switch would mark a huge change in the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's disclosure requirements and put them in line with European Union and United Kingdom rules.


I hate the quarterly reports as they just encourage short term thinking and more refined lying about what's going on inside a company. On top of that you're adding a non-productive burden to a company. This should be a slam dunk but of course the people suffering from TDS will be all over this screaming about how Trump wants to take over corporate America or something equally hysterical.

Our local newspaper had an article that the voter registration deadline for our county residents is Oct 9. The article goes on to tell you how you can register on line and also gave a list for designated places you can register. I found a few of the places just a little bit interesting. What do you think?
1. Board of Elections
2. Bureau of Motor Vehicles
3. County Treasurer offices
4. Ohio Dept of Health's WIC offices
5. Ohio Dept of Human Services ( This includes County Welfare, Food Stamps, and AFDC program offices)
6. Ohio Dept of Mental Health
7. Ohio Dept of Mental Starts with an R and ends ation ( will not let me type this word)
8. Ohio's public schools
9. Rehabilitation Services
10. Public Libraries

This is racist because it presupposes that people of are races know where schools, libraries and where to buy your license plates are located and therefore have an equal access to voter registration.

I agree with Trump on a lot of things...this military parade isn't one of them. Not only is it a questionable expenditure why feed into the dictator/authoritarian narrative of the left?

Not hard to see when you learn that Washington DC, the city that owes its existence and lifeblood to the federal government, wanted $21M new dollars for providing police services and to close the streets.......... and that's not counting the $3.1B the feds give DC annually.

Maybe we can finally get the truth about Roswell if we get more candidates like this.

If you watched the interview it was about a "perjury trap" which of course is avoidable if one tells the truth. Rudy knows Trump cannot tell the truth.

Not always avoidable, if I remember something as 1 way and 2 other people remember it another way - then you have a problem. If you've ever listened to 2 sides of an argument you can see how far apart recollections and interpretations can be.

Mueller has nothing, if he had something he'd be charging or recommending charges and would be reporting to his boss (Rosenstein) about where he was going. Trump's testimony isn't needed, he's either got something or he doesn't, if he does Trump would have to deal with it in a trial.

Understand...but the reality is they would be fine with different recollections. His legal team doesn't want him alone in a room under oath because who knows what he will say. Mueller and his team are being cautious and likely have a lot more info than has been disclosed.

Not true. If two people tell the "truth" it depends on who the DA believes as to whether they go to jail or go home. Not to mention what is the "truth" in all those he said/she said situations?

Meanwhile folks call Trump a liar which he may be on the little things but remember how President Obama assured us repeatedly that the refugees let into this country on his watch were put through a process of EXTREME vetting!

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/n...ee-under-obama

An Iraqi national who fought for the Islamic State and pretended to be a refugee to enter the United States during former President Barack Obama's second term was arrested Wednesday and has begun legal proceedings to be deported to face murder charges for killing a police officer in his home country.

I guess it depends on the definition of "extreme vetting". Maybe they asked this guy what party he'd vote for if they let him in and he gave the correct answer - democrat!

In Neop’s case would this be “extreme wetting”?

Everyday in the newspaper they give a short news item for all 50 states and I really got a laugh for Ohio's today. It was reported by the Nat' weather that the 5.02 inches of rain at the Cinncinati northern Ky airport was the most rain recorded for any day ever in Aug. for Ohio. I hope they know that the Cinn. airport is in Ky not Ohio so should that not have been the most rain ever in KY for a day in Aug.? I might ask is this not just more Fake News?

Maybe. But if they do, nothing Trump will say or not say will change that. Trump could agree to go to any meeting and immediately take the 5th. That doesn't make him guilty and it certainly wouldn't mean he's not.

If Mueller has something, it would probably be best to prefer charges against him and put them out there openly in the House to see if they would impeach him.

Too early to tell if Gen Z will actually differ from Millennials? (We can only dream. ):

'Generation Z' is Coming—and They'll Outnumber the World's Millennials Within a Year

http://mentalfloss.com/article/55510...ithin-one-year

Quote:
Millennials tend to steal the spotlight—whether it be for blowing their savings on avocado toast or killing mayonnaise—but it won’t be a Millennial’s world much longer. As Bloomberg reports, the younger Generation Z is quietly on track to outnumber Millennials in 2019.

Using data from the United Nations, Bloomberg predicted that Gen Z will make up 32 percent of the global population in 2019, compared to an estimated 31.5 percent of Millennials. However, Millennials will still remain the largest group in the world's top four economies: the U.S., China, Japan, and Germany.
Quote:
For its analysis, Bloomberg defined members of Gen Z as those who were born in 2001 or later. This is a population that has never known a world that isn't digitally connected, and many Americans in this age group probably don't remember a time when the country wasn't at war.
Quote:
Most importantly, the oldest members of Gen Z will be turning 18 next year, making them eligible to vote.

This means they will also soon dominate the workforce, but there's some good news in it for employers. Gen Z is widely reported to be less self-centered than their Millennial counterparts; they're characterized by often trying to create their own solutions rather than looking to others for help, according to a report entitled "Rise of Gen Z: New Challenge for Retailers." They also tend to be more optimistic about the economy and social progress, and "anticipate being slightly happier than" Millennials, according to a survey by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Ltd.
