And while they're swabbing his feet and hands allegedly looking for chemical residue from bombs, they're forcibly obtaining his DNA in violation of his constitutional rights (yes, I realize the US Constitution doesn't cover you outside the US). People will defend this and claim the government isn't compiling DNA data from these collections. Yup...you keep believing that.

Why is this nuts? Are men and women not equal? Are they not citizens? Do they not share an equal stake in our Republic? Way to be demeaning and dismissive, but not a surprise either.

“Listen, we have had enough with political correctness, especially in the military. Political correctness is dangerous. And the idea that we would draft our daughters to forcibly bring them into the military and put them in close combat, I think is wrong, it is immoral, and if I am president, we ain’t doing it.” http://politi.co/1TN8o2h
"Political correctness is dangerous," he adds.

So he's saying that not only does he intend to discriminate, he intends to draft if he's president? That's not exactly comforting. Drafting anyone is nuts, but if there's going to be a draft, everyone should be subject to it regardless of gender. And no education out, either; that's a thinly disguised class out.

"If you think the theocratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives is scary, imagine having a president whose father believes that not only is Satan in charge of the U.S. government (Rick Santorum says Satan controls the film industry) but that evolution and LGBT rights are a communist plot, who says that, “There is nothing scientific about evolution.”

"Director Todd Haynes has established himself as an indie filmmaker who creates memorable roles for women, including his newest film, Carol, which stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, Oscar-nominated, respectively, as best actress and best supporting actress.  Haynes and Carol producer Christine Vachon tell us that their past success didn't make it easier to find money when financiers learned there would be no male leads in their movie."

That is, I'm thinking of it in terms of this article I read in The New Yorker about (which I don't necessarily agree with) on the difference of relationships, especially marriage, as written in fiction by men and by women.

http://www.newyorker.com/books/page-turner/the-ideal-marriage-according-to-novels

Personally, I think the examples were extremely cherry-picked....but this movie, I found, to be quite a good example of romance seen by the stereotypical male eye, as described in the article. (I want to be clear that it isn't my view.)

Strong winds caused a colossal crane to collapse in downtown Manhattan on Friday morning. Someone in a nearby office caught in on tape from above, and holy shit is it scary to watch.

Hard to think of anybody running for President this year who has been fact checked lying more often than Trump.

http://www.politifact.com/personalities/donald-trump/
Donald J. Trump denied calling Senator John McCain a loser. But he did say it, in reference to Mr. McCain’s loss to Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential race.

Trump appeals to stupid people. Yep, he tells it like it is in the minds of the stupid and delusional.

+Darnell Jackson Well hopefully the Center for Medical Progress will be convicted of the charges the grand jury returned and then the guilty will indeed be punished.

+Jason Thompson​ I agree with you, at least in this case. I do however recognize that different people set different limits. If it is at Trump campaign meetings, at neo-nazi marches or KKK rally's, that's up to them to decide. If Elton John has another view than us, be it right or wrong, it's his call, not ours. And it's definitely not Trumps.

“People call for more transportation investment but never talk about how they’ll pay for it,” he said. “We need major new investments and a long-term funding solution.”
The proposal, to be included in the administration’s budget request, is part of its effort to fight climate change. The revenue would be spent on highway infrastructure and research.

Story

Love learning new things.
Introduction
Dad, Consultant, Cornellian, traditional liberal (it's about free markets, free trade and free speech), avid reader and film buff, youth soccer, basketball, little league coach, tech geek, policy wonk, historian, SF lover, sports fan and even more which at some point I'll get to. I truly enjoy open, tolerant, frank yet respectful exchanges. Love learning new things.

I love to share all kinds of posts and have respectful, intelligent debates and conversations. While many posts will be related to politics or issues of personal liberty and freedom, you'll also find a fair number of other things given my wide range of, at times, eclectic interest. The main thing is to be respectful and have fun. Also, don't be afraid to moderate the comment threads on your own posts (I'm not). If people can't be polite and civil, don't be afraid to block them. Being open to conflicting and different ideas does not mean you have to accept rudeness.

Grew up back East in NYC, engineer and ROTC in college, though now live on the West Coast and have lived and traveled all over the world as a kid and an adult (if i can just get to Antarctica, I can nail down every continent). Member, Pacific Council on International Policy.
