    The Contrarian Blog: The Moron’s Case For Hillary Clinton…because some of you really are that stupid.

    This guy made me feel good when I read his blog. I won't say what is in his article, but the title should give you a hint.

    Wow ! Five stars (out of 5). Perfect. The whole country should read this and get over the 1950's backwards thinking. "If a woman gets a chance we'll have to obstruct like we did with

    The black guy otherwise, blacks and woman are going to want to be involved in important matters and we can't stand by and let non white men to have hopes or dreams." SARCASM.

    The choice is obvious and those who can't see it should find the Windex and clean those glasses.

    Thanks for sharing what should be obvious but apparently is not.

    The fact that he was a close friend of Roy Cohn is enough alone to disqualify Trump. Negotiating bubusiness deals as arms length adversaries resulting in numbers differences is not comparable to negotiating for safety of lives and peaceful existance. Even as selfcentered as Trump is he should recognize the difference.

    Thanks for sharing Schmidt. Joe Contrarian hit the nail on the head.

    The cognitive dissonance so many Hillary haters live in simply astounds me. Suggesting that she and Donald Trump are one in the same isn't idiotic, it's dangerous. Donald Trump stands against everything Secretary Clinton stands for.

    He is a racist misogynist who has built his hotel and golf empire by screwing people over and then declaring bankruptcy whenever things don't go his way. The right (and even some of the left) want to bash Clinton over her charitable work, but they are eerily silent when it comes to what they think about a billionaire businessman making decisions as President that will very likely be to the benefit of his businesses.

    Secretary Clinton has spent her entire life trying to help other people. The hatred spewed at her from both sides of the aisle is just sickening. Nobody's anger is based on anything factual, it's just that they hate her just because. That's what happens when the media spends two decades attacking you, but I would expect more from our friends on the left.

    It's a turbulent time. 5 - 8 regulars are suspiciously quite. I wonder. What's on their minds and why they typically say nothing or next to nothing. Seems like they should say what's being held back. Perhaps they are not feeling articulate or ......

    Read what J.C. said in another thread. Some people on this site are very biased and refuse to see things as they relate to BOTH candidates. Even I have faults. Thus my answer is be realistic; both candidates have plenty of faults. Like was said by me ages ago, neither candidate actually is an fantastic choice for such difficult job. Certainly the selected V.P.'s are even worse.

    Sorry to say Bernie would have been an better choice, without all the baggage.

    So I'm not waving any flags or jump from joy; neither should Jared or Schmidt. Amen

    Dutch you are right. If anyone picked two candidates out of the entire country, it would be insane to pick these two. However it is what it is. Provided we have two choices the decision is easy. One is a hate inspired jerk and the other spent her whole life working in government towards helping people. Mistakes ? He'll yes she's made them. I don't ever say she's without issues. However she's not near the low level of him. Too many struggle with the idea of giving a woman a chance.

    Bernie was great. My problem with him was he promised the world without a plan to pay for it. If she gets in (yes I said if) perhaps Bernie can get an important cabinet position and bring positive changes to this country.

    Thanks Tony; After the "pussy" thing, I guess he will loose. But knowing the guy, he may still do everything to win. So I guess some wild days ahead. Hope that Hillary does not screw up in next debates. Your comment related to Bernie; sure I agree, but the DNC itself has to change drastically after the Wasserman debacle, otherwise he will not get any influence on any policies.

    Dutch -- Quoting from the Contrarian article above:

    "I am really sick and tired of people saying both candidates are equally horrible choices, how much America thoroughly hates both of them to the core, that there’s not a single positive trait in either one of them and wow, if only we had voted for that guy behind the deli counter or the neighbor’s cat, America would be WAY better off....Fuck you. Fuck the deli guy and fuck your neighbor’s cat."

    This is my sentiment for those who think that Hillary is the lesser of two evils...or who say that if only we had nominated Bernie, we wouldn't have all this Hillary controversy (much of it manufactured) to deal with. But what did we really find out about Bernie during the campaign? Not much. Hillary did not vet him or call into question his "socialist past" because she needed his supporters. Republicans wanted to run against Bernie. They would have been ruthless calling up all the "Bernie baggage" that Hillary chose to ignore...they would have eviscerated him. So it gets back to the known versus the unknown...

    "Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns – the ones we don't know we don't know. And if one looks throughout the history of our country and other free countries, it is the latter category that tend to be the difficult ones." -- Donald Rumsfeld

    What I know about Hillary Clinton I absolutely like. I can go through her vetting list and say I agree with 95 percent of it. And many on this website if they did the same exercise would come to the same conclusion. But it's that purity test that we apply to the other 5 percent that separates me from Dutch and others.

    Hillary Clinton will make an outstanding President. She is the most qualified person to run for the office in history. Give her a chance and quit applying purity tests. The mythical candidate you want exists only in your mind and that conforms 100 percent with your worldviews...nothing less.

    Schmidt, I wonder about you. Are you in love with Hillary?, just because of what others wrote? Sorry she's an woman with an past as anyone of us; including plenty of mistakes . Remove your "colored" glasses and see the world around you as it is, including "politics". You would not be suited for that job, because you don't look farther than the "written" word; even "bibles" are lies; you should know that by now. Yes both candidates are bad choices, both have "agenda's" why they are running?; how about "ego's? Ego's are always an obstruction and in the way of rational thinking

    ( Moses said so Art. 27-41) Did you ever ask yourself why she does want that job?

    Bernie Sanders. If Donald Trump is elected, you'll never hear from him or about him again. It's that plain and simple. Schmidt you're entirely correct about her. She'll be great if the masses can get past their undying need for a penis in the oval office.

    Yes Dutch, the DNC needs much work. Campaign finance reform must be a priority.

    Dutch -- Here's the list of her experiences from the Contrarian website. Is there anything in here that you dispute or disagree with? When you cite she made "plenty of mistakes" I suppose you would never be satisfied with a Bernie Sanders either. He's made a lot of mistakes too that just haven't been made public. Tell me the mistakes that Hillary made that are so profound that you cannot see her any more than another "evil" or that would disqualify her from the presidency. Then let's talk about them in comparison to her list of accomplishments and her comprehensive list of proposals should she become president.

    Sure but she did those fabulous things without a penis. Disqualification. There's mad penis love in 'murica. Mad love by too many on this site as well.Those with zero tolerance for two penises in a private relationship also have zero tolerance for a ticket without two. WTF would Freud say ?
