Donald Trump is 100% right on this! Mexico has only rich and poor no middle class. The rich do not care about the poor and would love for them to leave Mexico to the U. S. so they can send money back to Mexico. We need to stop this. Donald Trump has it right. Legal immigration is what we want. This way the U. S. can make sure we get the best educated immigrants.
“The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems,” Trump said to supporters at Trump Tower where the real estate mogul declared his bid for the GOP nomination. “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best…They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”June 26, 2015 at 2:10 pm #42074
Nice hit piece.
Dude titles his rant Donald Trump: A Mexican-American’s take on businessman’s clownish presidential bid, which is just really click bait.
He quotes Trump directly, then spends his rant not only not rebutting literally anything Trump said, but goes out of his way to insult him directly, calling him a clown. Then spends a good portion of his rant saying what a bad person Trump is and how many problems he has and because he’s a Republican, he can’t possibly know what’s going on.
In the real world, this is called an ‘ad hominem ergo decedo’ attack. Literally, trying to discredit the message by attempting to attack and discredit the messenger directly, as well as saying they are incapable of understanding given their background.
His rant also includes something called a Red Herring – an argument made to mislead the reader from the original subject of contention. Along with other blatant fraudulent methods, such as Ignoratio elenchi (irrelevant conclusion), and Shotgun Argumentation. He;s literally all over the place – even taking a swipe at the reader, saying that if you feel anything like Trump does, then you’re stupid and equally as bad. In fact, this guy’s position is literally “If you don’t think like I tell you and agree with me, you’re a window-licking retard”.

Writes for the Faily Beast and WaPo? Why am I not surprised? I’m gonna have a heart attack and die from “not surprise”… If I called myself a “journalist” and wrote like this – and in this fantasy land, “journalists” are held to standards by editors who are equally skilled and competent – I would be eating Ramen noodles for the rest of my life…

Trump fires back at UnivisionJune 26, 2015 at 3:58 pm #42078
I’m no Trump fanboi – I don’t want him to actually be President, but I would like to see him included in every single debate. It’d be fun. Sort of like how throwing a rabid porcupine into a nudist colony would be fun. Wait for one of those blowdried phonies to step into a big bear trap and then sit back with a bucket of popcorn and laugh as Trump goes and derails the whole thing…
And I already said that Niel Young was a leftist progtard, but when did he start dressing like he lives in a dumpster?
Sorry for being such a cynic, free… I’ve voted in every election I was eligible for since I came of age, but I’ve since realized that it doesn’t make one damn bit of difference. They’re all sociopaths. They lie smoothly and evenly to your face – I’m convinced they could all pass a polygraph test. Every last one of them – but as soon as they get into office they do what they want, screw you and your piddly problems, and better-deal their way into as much bribe money as possible.
To make matters worse, every single gutless one of them is tripping over themselves to be the first to prostrate themselves to their gods of cultural Marxism, secular humanism and political correctness and sell out our culture to a very vocal minority of agitators. And why? Because they’re cowards. They are afraid of what the lickspittle Apparatchik 5th column “media” will say about them if they dare say something like “The flag stays. If you want it to come down, you’re gonna have to fight me for it!”. Bunch of gutless, craven cowards. They do not deserve this country!
I was over at the VAMC – the veteran’s hospital – and I looked around. I saw my brothers. Those who came before me. Those who came after. The sick. The lame. The blind. Guys that had their legs or arms blown off. Guys traumatized to an extent that no human being should have to endure. Guys who were dying. Guys who were in wheelchairs. Guys who would never again know what it was like to be with a woman. Guys with head injuries so severe, they won’t know their families ever again… and I felt that old, cold fury rise. Politicians, talking heads, the intelligentsia, the self-appointed “social justice warriors”, ivory tower denizens… all doing their best to bring this country down…
Well, what in the hell did we all serve for, if it’s come to this?
These m-f-ers don’t deserve this country! They were given something so righteous, so special, and they pi$$ed all over it. And it was handed to them. So f- them and the horse they rode in on.
And because the game is rigged, I’ve decided to not play anymore. I have sworn off voting. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. So, Imma sit back and laugh while Rome burns. Sort of like Granny in “Mars Attacks!”. Trump won’t do sh*t… no one man can reverse our trajectory. The cumulative efforts of 100 years of evil, maniacal men – and women – have ruined this place… Trump might talk a good game, but I’m betting he’s weak when he puts his cleats on. And his math is off – he says the magic number is “24 Trillion”… eh, no. We’re already to the point where it’s mathematically impossible to pay off our debt. Nothing special about 24 trillion… and I think he knows that. But to say it is a bit too much truth for the average American and their iCrap. If everyone knew how screwed we are, this country would burn. And I don’t think he wants that. Telling us “24 trillion” means “we have time to turn this around” to anyone hearing it… takes awhile to spend that kind of cash. But in reality, we’re done.
An asteroid can’t hit this country soon enough, my friend…

Malgus, I couldn’t help but notice that the writer didn’t even attempt to refute what Trump said too. The writer knows that facts are on Trump’s side so he did the only thing he cold, attack Trump personally.
As for voting, I’ve never lived in a State that wasn’t majority Democrat (not that there is a substantive difference between the D’s & R’s) but I still vote because I can. Every now and then the voters come through with a surprise.June 26, 2015 at 5:27 pm #42080
I’m feeling pretty much like Malgus right now. I can’t see where the Federal or State governments have passed a single law that has benefited me or anyone not collecting from the government in the last 30 years. On top of that the judicial system makes up new laws as they see fit and is totally out of control.June 26, 2015 at 8:07 pm #42085
Every now and then the voters come through with a surprise.
And when they do … that’s what the Justitutes of the Extreme Court are for — countersurprise!

Trump is a blowhard , he has run a few times but never stays the course , drops out before half way into the election most of the time . He has the means , if he was actually that concerned about saving the nation , one might think he would stick it out , and at least be there to ask uncomfortable questions in the debates , like Ron Paul did .June 27, 2015 at 1:34 am #42088
Trump was never an actual candidate any time in the past. At least he has the balls to say what he means instead of the constant political speech of saying nothing with a thousand words so what is said can be construed to fit any question.June 27, 2015 at 12:46 pm #42092
Trump will never be elected because folks don’t want politicians to speak honestly to them. It is refreshing to hear him call it as he sees it though.June 27, 2015 at 1:56 pm #42093
I’m not sure about that MountainBiker, Trump has been going up big time in the poles because he speaks the truth and doesn’t care.
