Bill, I've never seen you so fired up! Are those silent Trump supporters keeping quiet out of embarrassment? I can understand their discomfort - supporting a candidate who brags about molesting women and not paying tax. Someone who dodged the draft but has the temerity to criticize a hero like John McCain. It must be hard reconciling all that by saying this man is the one we want to be our leader. The US Presidency is rightly called the most powerful position in the world, that's why the world is watching and can't believe Trump, given his erratic temperament among many other obvious deficiencies, has gotten as far as he has. Leaders should inspire, lift our eyes to better things. Trump ain't no leader! Robert de Niro summed him up perfectly.

What brought this about was that right-leaning folks were tired of stiffs like Romney and McCain who did nothing but lose - badly. People wanted a candidate with some energy and excitement. Trouble is Trump's insults and abrasiveness have turned a lot of people off in the process.

I think that giving a crap what other countries think of us is a large part of what has gotten us into trouble (See Obummer apology tour).

Finally, don't believe the polls. There are a lot of Trump supporters out there who are, for the most part, keeping their mouths shut. We shall see...
dave 2016-10-25 09:07:57
Grant, I'd say that's a pretty accurate assessment
grant228 2016-10-18 08:55:26
Bill, that writer I quoted is from a Rupert Murdoch-owned paper so things must be bad for the Republicans if Rupert is against them. All the GOP had to do was pick a candidate who could stand upright, sound reasonably cogent and had a less than lurid past and they would be laughing. It is this dragging down of conservative forces to the lowest common denominator that will cost dearly. A candidate of the ilk of Mitt Romney or John McCain would now be almost there. The GOP has given us men of calibre like Eisenhower and Reagan and to think it's been hijacked by reactionary forces who have billowed Hillary's sails is the greatest tragedy of this campaign.
bill 2016-10-17 16:23:17
Yup. And Hillary is a liar and a crook. So, where do we go from here? I do like Gary Johnson to some degree. He's a little ill informed but at least he's not a liar or a nut job.

Much of the problem is that the Dems and the GOP set the rules and they make it such that no other parties have a chance. For example, if a party doesn't show 15% in the polls, they can't participate in the televised debates. Well, they will never get to 15% if you don't let them in the debates! I'd like to see maybe 5% or above in the polls and you're in. People need more choices!

In the meantime, we're stuck with the two parties.
grant228 2016-10-14 21:53:45
Bill, good to hear from you but the opprobrium this campaign has generated has made the world view America differently. In a respected Australian paper today Paul Kelly, a distinguished conservative writer, started his article with following words: "Despite all flawed past prophecies it is surely impossible to view the ghastly freak show of the US presidential election without apprehension that we are witnessing the decline of a civlisation and the death of the virtues that made America great. Donald Trump should never have become the Republican nominee for president. His nomination and his campaign is the greatest failure of the Republicans and of American conservatism since World War II. The crisis has been decades in the making." Regardless of the election outcome, Trump's antics, vulgarity, lack of thought and the enthusiastic support he's received for dumbing down your national I Q have made the U S a global joke. That last sentence is mine.
bill 2016-10-14 16:19:04
Hi Grant: I think Trump does have lofty goals for our country. He just has a way of insulting everyone whether they are for or against him. He is just far too brash for most people. I'm okay with his style but many aren't. Hillary would be more of the same mediocrity.
grant228 2016-10-13 06:56:54
Gentlemen, you know I have an abiding interest in your political system but I can't remember a more tawdry, demeaning and demoralising election campaign than this one. Do you feel like a cleansing bath? Surely your country is capable of better? Where is the appeal to loftier ideals that has made the USA a world leader?

It was on at 9pm here, Grant.
grant228 2016-09-27 07:12:35
Watched to great debate and will with hold judgment. What time was it shown over there? We were watching it in the middle of the day so I thought it must have been on late at night?
grant228 2016-09-25 01:22:56
Dave, bizarre is a nice way to put it!
dave 2016-09-21 00:42:24
It's really bizarre grant.
grant228 2016-09-20 21:10:13
Dave, we outside your election bubble shake our heads at what is transpiring in your campaign. I know politicians always have to pander to the lowest common denominator but this time round the bar has been set frighteningly low. There appears few attempts to appeal to lofty ideals.
dave 2016-09-19 02:02:10
Grant, I think so!!!
grant228 2016-09-16 08:23:51
Gentlemen, today I heard the Republican candidate interviewed on his state of health and exercise routines. He stated he did a lot of gesturing in his speeches which he regarded as exercise! Is he really a subversive social study to ascertain how many stupid statements a person can make before the majority of your countrymen and women realize they're being taken for a ride?
grant228 2016-09-15 22:00:47
Dave, thanks for the update. Michigan has never featured in travellers' tales of famed ski runs. It's only natural living where you do that you should have a fair bit of snow.
dave 2016-09-15 18:27:37
We have some skiing here in Michigan also Grant.
grant228 2016-08-28 09:24:15
Dave, we have more snowfields than Switzerland! It's just they're a fair way from the majority of the people and our ski runs pale when compared with those say in Europe or Colorado. Our mountains are pretty small also so the snow doesn't stay for long. The ski season lasts at most for three months. If you're looking for good skiing in the southern hemisphere then check out New Zealand.
bill 2016-08-26 14:06:28
Gang: Each day, for the next ten days, we'll be featuring a pre-season top ten team, starting today with Notre Dame. Good luck and enjoy!
dave 2016-08-26 10:14:58
Bill, yea I figured but I am just going by Michigan's opener. Grant, are there many locations in Australia that are good for winter sports?
bill 2016-08-25 11:42:33
Even closer than that, Dave! Actually, college football kicks off tomorrow night when Hawaii visits Cal (although most teams don't start until next week). In recognition of the CFB season, we'll feature a CFB quiz daily starting today for the next week. Lots of fun!
grant228 2016-08-25 11:37:53
Bill, that's cold comfort to we who live in Oz. We do a lot better in Olympics when the water is not solid!
dave 2016-08-25 09:45:29
And of course, two weeks or so until college football here in the states.
bill 2016-08-24 13:32:24
These sorts of things happen, Grant. Hey, only 533 days until the 2018 Winter Olympics! :-)
grant228 2016-08-20 04:33:06
Bill, so was I. As with a number of our teams at this Olympics they appeared to have suffered stage-fright. I think your boys can safely bank this gold medal. One hopes our team will gain something from this resounding defeat. It is a test of character to learn from a loss and do something with it.
bill 2016-08-19 23:46:49
Grant, so sorry about your Aussie boys. Can't believe how badly they took it on the chin from the Serbs. Was looking forward to a AU vs US match. Oh well, maybe in '20.
bill 2016-08-19 13:34:06
Don't get me started, buddy! If it weren't for the volleykinis, who would actually watch it?!
grant228 2016-08-19 00:01:44
Bill, I think the beach volleyball is an even better spectator sport.
bill 2016-08-11 15:35:40
Wow! Our swimmers are performing very well! Watching The Games right now and a reporter is out on the beach there. Looks very inviting (and so does the beach! nyuk, nyuk...)

Yes, I saw the hoops yesterday and it was a great match. Your Aussie boys out hustled us in every phase.®    Introduction    Privacy Policy    Conditions of Use
