This is a pretty simple concept. Even the Stable Ginearse would have a good chance of understanding this. It would be interesting performing aircraft maintenance with instructions written like this.

In the South....even amongst those of us who sometimes wear shoes.....a typical response to your post would be the nuanced....."Whaaaaaattt?"

Or fairly interpreted as "Just what in tarnation did that Fool just say?".

Give us the short version will you?

Me thinks the DNC leadership is in full meltdown tonight after Nevada.

They’re coming to the realization of 4 more years of Trump, yet unlike 2016 they can’t do much to influence the outcome.

I must say, I found the Bloomberg beating entertaining in a cringeworthy kinda way. Pocahontas is good for something after all.

Of course, Westy, if the "DNC leadership" had managed to produce at least one or two candidates reflecting the views of mainstream Democrats, they would not be in this position. However, they decided to pander to various identity groups and leave the large middle ground group for the other party, and for Trump.

No sympathy here.

We are seeing the Democrats losing traditional hold on Unions, Blacks, Hispanics, and the working lower middle class.

The DNC Leadership (term very loosely used) should have learned one of the tenets of military leadership......called "Every now and then you should look back and make sure the Troops are behind you or else you might find yourself all alone.".

The answer that is going to be answered this election is simple....is the United States going Socialist or not.

When Trump wins as he surely shall....he gets four more years to shape the future of the Country by means of the Federal Judges and Supreme Court Justices he appoints.

He has already put a wooden stake into the socialist heart of the Ninth Circuit and will continue pounding on that one for sure.

The Presidents claim good Economies....but most have scant effect on the economy.

Trump. has been a very positive influence on the economy of the country.....and we have seen good continued growth so far.

The Democrats are headed down the road to perdition and until they reach that destination and realize they must rebuild by adopting the views of the majority rather than the Leftists they shall continue to suffer defeat after defeat.

I would say this advice applies to your troops as well.You may find a diminished % of voters among our age groups. I would also say that independent voters, although a smaller bloc than in the past, will be a deciding factor and nobody knows who they are or which way they will go. Don't count your chickens just yet, count your eggs first....

I would tend to agree with you turbine, however it would appear the eggs are all cracked on that side.

That's 37% of the electorate an entirely different thing to 37% of voters
You guys need not worry, you'll get your 4 more years of the great leader and by then who's to say the chosen one won't remodel/ignore the constitution and make himself Leader for life....you know he wants to

Why oh why are folks so paranoid? The number of grasping at straws stories to try and rally someone, anyone out there to shore up the Trump opposition is absolutely amazing, and so patently obvious.
Whoever, if indeed anyone, is coordinating all these disinformation campaigns, all they are doing is keeping the media happy.
If a dumb ass like me can see it.........

Interesting numbers out of Nevada:

Sanders won not only with voters under 30 and people who identify as very liberal, but also with men, women, Hispanics (overwhelmingly), voters 45 to 64 and people with and without college degrees, according to polls conducted as voters entered caucus sites. He also did well among black voters and moderates, finishing a close second to Joe Biden with both groups, which are supposed to be the former vice president's base.
After The Nevada Caucuses, Bernie Sanders Is The Man To Beat

I think when all is said and done, assuming nothing major changes, I am sure the DNC will rue the day they let an independent (Sanders) into their tent, the same mistake the RNC made when they let an independent (Trump) into their tent. Both organizations have lost control of their values, focus and possibly their destinies going forward. We shall see, time will tell.

Just to be completely clear I have no fondness for the Trump opposition, I think both your main parties are full of people I wouldnt buy a used car from
We are in the same position here in the UK, the quality and lack of integrity of our leadership is shocking

I'm only a few years younger than you, but I'm old enough to remember campaigning for Ike. I would agree that the RNC has lost the values of RINOS like McCain, Romney, Paul Ryan, and their ilk; i.e. the Washington Swamp Creatures. The values of these men and men like them explain why Donald Trump was elected. True, his victory was a shock and a huge disappointment to them, but to old-time Republicans like me, I view President Trump's leadership as re-finding the true values of the RNC along with a satisfying expansion to include more minorities and more blue-color workers.

So Ryan and Romney don't like it one but, I am not alone in being grateful that the Republican Party is finally getting it's wheels out of the ditch. The RNC is going to do just fine under President Trumps guidance and it's interesting to watch some of the Swamp Creatures climb up on the bank, wipe the slime off, and jump on the Trump Train. Jeff Sessions is one example. In eight more days, we'll see if he has rehabilitated himself sufficiently. I'm betting he has, he will once again be an Alabama Senator, and he will prove to be a staunch ally of our President.

The Democrats aren't so lucky. By allowing Bernie to set their agenda, they've jumped the ditch on the left and are headed out, Hell-bend-for-leather, into an endless muddy field. They may never recover.

Well now....a once powerful Hollywood swamp creature of the worst kind has really bit it in the shorts!

Weinstein found guilty of two Counts.....facing up to 25 years in Prison.

Considering his health....that probably is going to be a Life Sentence.

Good riddance to a real sleaze ball.

Let's see how the Hollywood elite and Leftie's handle this one....forced sodomy on Women.....now there is an issue they can get their teeth into if they are not careful.

One slip up....and they can land in the poo!

Don't you think he will appeal?

Not difficult to get a reprieve

I actually agree, the difference is Trump won, Bernie hasn't a chance.

In February of 2016, how many people predicted that DT would get the nom and the win?

I am not about to try and predict the outcome in November.
Bernie winning would not surprise me, even if I thinks he's (1) unrealistic in what he thinks he can do, and (2) has any idea what the knock on effects of his policy choices are.
And those two points alone are enough to not vote for him with my vote.

Given the way they rally around Roman Polanski I wouldn't expect too much.

In 2016 the Dems ran the only politician Trump could beat. I thought that would be a one off, however history looks to repeat itself. Bernie has a limited audience of those who’ll vote for him. Equally important there’s many who’ll vote against him as they fear his agenda more than they fear Trump.

History will determine who won and who lost, not one opinion as to who hasn't a chance..,. Are you a millennial? think about that for awhile...
