Holt Prejudiced in Trump-Clinton Debate?

No, No, No, Of course not. If ANYONE  who watched the debate think he wasn't pro-Hillary all the way must still believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. Naivety, on Trumps' part in the political arena is more excusable than being a corrupt liar which most aptly describes Clinton.

You could tell by Trump's reactions during the debate that he was 'set up" as he predicted but he he showed Presidential timbre in the way he basically controlled his anger..

Hillary is phony, a Pinocchio, a consummate liar who stupidly or consciously abetted the killings at Benghazi and perhaps abetted the "suicide" of Vince Foster who may have stopped the Clinton's from ever advancing beyond a governorship. Trump is a sometimes liar; Clinton's every statement contains at least one falsehood. Trump is a fact-stretcher but his points are valid. Clinton, if elected, would be even worse than a Socialist or a Marxist.

As I blogged before, maybe this is what the populists want. Unfortunately, if she is elected, I may not be able to get out of this country before I pass on.

So sad.


Every time I see her on TV I switch channels before I puke.

The Great Presidential Debate of 2016

Of course Trump was on the defensive. She was asked by the "moderator" to go first giving her the opportunity to attack Trump putting him on the defensive from the get-go. It was always Clinton first. I don't know if they flipped a coin or drew straws. But the moderator was not able to control two head strong people attacking each other.

Nothing new came out that most of us who are following this "race" hadn't already heard over and over. Many half-truths. Regardless of who wins, very little of what was said by both candidates tonight can be accomplished. I do not agree with Clinton nor does Trump but he evaded the question that all workers should make the same amount of money such as the much debated minimum wage. Clinton supports it and most likely $15 an hour. I believe no matter where you start on the minimum wage type jobs, that their must be an opportunity to share

Overtaxing the wealthy is always a mistake. It takes decent profits to expand and hire more workers and managers. Also more construction jobs. Clinton, like so many politicians has never met a payroll. It takes wealth to grow a business but the profits should not all go to the owners or those running the operation. I do believe that no person on this earth is worth more than $17 million a year plus the generous benefits all receive.

One thing Trump was absolutely right on and that is the state of affairs on this earth. That most of the blame goes to the Democrats, Republicans also own a large share of the mistakes made to put us where we are today and more important, the disastrous direction we are heading. If Trump is elected, he will do a better job than Clinton because he has started,  bought and sold businesses, went bankrupt and has met a lot of large payrolls even as others lost their jobs.

Shit happens.

Trump a nuclear threat? Not hardly. I'm not sure of this number but 8 or more countries have nuclear weapons. Maybe even ISIS, if not now, possibly soon. The most dangerous is still probably Russia although the nutcase in North Korea is capable of making a horrible mistake.

Trump talked about the stock market bubble which will soon burst. Clinton evaded the "bubble" because she is beholden to Wall Street. .

Anyone who criticizes what I write about a bubble should read the "Forgotten Man" by Amity Shlaes.

High Tech Corporations Raise $113 Million For Clinton

Among the leaders are the struggling Yahoo, Netflix and the semi Socialist Facebook. I am cancelling my Facebook today. Many should be concerned because the tech industry promotes less jobs while our real number of unemployed stands closer to 15% wile another 10% or more are underemployed.

One to many 1's in original post. Bad enough, though. Sorry

Shooting at Cascade Mall in State of Washington

Unknown number of dead and wounded in another killing. Please start cutting the discovery time to 6 months and those guilty of these killing be hanged and not housed in prison for 15 years while they and Marxist attorneys file endless appeals for clemency.

Louisville Slugger Complex Off Schedule

Drove out to the site today and was greeted with a "stay out" sign. According to the June 2015 IB, the complex was to open in June 2015. Now 2016 is basically gone and the complex is still under construction. Accordion to the complex attorney, the large sports complex with a huge indoor facility will not cost the taxpayers one dime.

Does this statement sound familiar to those of you who didn't invest in the Peoria Baseball Chiefs new stadium?, The City of Peoria invested more than $5 million of your money, forgave a $1.2 million dollar loan and George Ryan had the State of Illinois donate $2 million of your money.
State Representative Dave Leitch tried to get the taxpayer to reimburse us investors with more of your money. Since information from the Chiefs was very hard to secure, I don't know whether he succeeded or not.

A year of so ago, I sold my $50,000 investment made in 1994 when the club was still at Meinen Field.for a pittance. (The Club stopped communicating with me about 2 years ago) Unless there were some back room deals all 42 ( 2 owners quickly donated their stock and one transferred his stock to his son) of the 45 investors may be holding stock for which there apparently is no market. The Chiefs apparently bought back the shares of the Community Foundation of Central Illinois because of pressure from the elite that run this Foundation.

I have a great deal of information on how unwisely tax payer dollars are spent. I hope some one will accept before I pass on.

More on the Chiefs sorry history in the future and how the $29,000 offer from Kevin Shields for my shares never came to pass.

Cruz Endorses Trump - Some Right-Wing Elite Peoria County Establishment Republicans Jump Off the Top of the PRM

Or off the top of the Chamber of Commerce Building, housing about as inept a group ever in their long history of ineptness. Do the jump before the Chamber relocates again Those who believe one can't change their mind should read "The Forgotten Man", a book that describes the constant waffling of FDR before and during the Great depression that ended mainly with the help of the start of WW1 in the late 1930's. Most public educated kids do not know when the U.S.A. entered this war and why. Yes, it was the bombing of Pearl Harbor. But FDR was already personally involved and planned to take this country into this war. PH was the final catalyst.

Our country is, admit it or not, divided into two classes. The wealthy or at least the well-to-do upper class and the public school educated or not educated, lower class. Not to mention the elite colleges versus the colleges that accept the public school graduates.

Yes, I know their are exceptions in both classes. Like me when I opened my business in Peoria in 1964, bank officials wanted to know "who my daddy was" and if I was a college graduate and what college. I told them that Dad was a poor "dirt farmer"and I graduated from Western.. That got me only a $2500 line of credit. But I had the gumption, taught by my poor, hard-working, uneducated Dad and Mom; a gumption so lacking in the majority of the lower class today.

Guess I'll have to wait for the results of Monday nights huge debate to see whether the "establishment" Republicans decide to join Cruz, a man who out drew Trump by Peoria County voters in the primary. (Expectations are 100 million viewers Monday)


Message to All Authorized Authorities - Shoot ALL Looters

To KILL. The world will be a better place without them. Another message. Every security person authorized to carry a deadly weapon must have a Taser and body camera. Do Board members really believe million dollar lawsuits are cheaper??

The public should tell ELECTED BIG SPENDERS to STOP spending so much on NON-PRIORITIES.

Community Word - A Socialist Newspaper?

In this month issue, the CW have a  picture and a quote of Eugene (Gene) V. Debs, five times a Presidential Candidate of the Socialist Party. The quote the CW printed with his picture is as follows: "I am opposing a social order in which it is possible for one man who does nothing that is useful to amass a fortune of hundreds of millions of dollars, while millions of men and women who work all the days of their lives secure barely enough for a wretched existence. The class which has the power to rob upon  a larger scale has also the power to control the government and legalize their robbery."

Well, I agree with a small part of what he said, aren't people clamoring for a change when with Hillary or Biden people would get the same or worse. But certainly all the "wretched' in Peoria have a frig, a TV, electricity and most have air conditioning. ( I grew up with NONE  of the above accept we did have electricity and a fan or two). Same in school.

And most poor have a vehicle. Or a bike. They have free schooling which most poor resent. They have more freedom than almost any country in the world. They have the right to vote but most only want to push one button that says "Democrat". Last election in Peoria about 20-22% of eligible voters, voted. I'm voting for Trump to CHANGE the system and if he doesn't do a reasonable job, I hope there is a candidate I can really accept and I will vote Trump out.

See my next blog. I am so weary of half-truths and outright lies.
