    You do resemble them! Yes, you most certainly do.

      Dumb comment. "If you were", if this or that.

Moreover, if you were or are currently in the military, do you seriously think that you could have gotten away scot free after making some of the comments that the Donald made? I think of at least one person from my days on active duty for making what he thought was an innocuous comment.

        Remarks from strangers don't normally bother me, so I don't consider myself sensitive.

        I didn't start out a Trump supporter but I find myself coming around of late. I find myself in agreement with him more often than not.

          I voted for him just out of the choice of him or hillary. Btw he's doing quite well in my score book.

          Looks like some real 'hope and change' for our economy.

              Fair enough; quite a few of my friends voted for that POS as well but I am still friends with them although when I posed them the same question I almost invariably get a stammering response or the almost inevitable response "I know he is an a-hole but it was either him or Hillary." From my perspective Belzebub himself would have been preferable to the Donald.

                  Doubtful, thus far Trump has accomplished more in one year than a lead paint chip punk did in eight. As far as Hillary is concerned, anyone that voted for her needs their head checked. Stealing from the American people is her most exceptional talent.

                      The black unemployment rate of 6.8 percent in December was the lowest since the Bureau of Labor Statistics started tracking it in 1972, a year in which the rate ranged from 11.2 percent to 9.4 percent. In the 45 years the data has been tracked, the unemployment rate for black or African-American workers aged 16 years and older has never fallen below 7 percent.

                      This is so racist! Imagine - forcing black people to work.

                        If US politics continues to evolve as it does the next presidential election ballot will likely have Beelzebub vs. Homer Simpson.

                        It will be tight race no doubt, and as you point out anything's better than Hillary Clinton

                          I'd look forward to it so we can leave the rest of the world for China to play with and save our own time and money.

                            We elected Beelzebub before, makes no difference.

                            Different shade of green in military uniforms, and a better cut - that's all, preferable hairdo also, don't worry

                              actually check the chart out.

                              He did

                              It is a good indicator though certain gaps maybe be closing. although next question hows pay gap doing

                                What pay gap? You realize that you can't pay McDonald's workers the same thing that registered nurses are paid regardless of their sex or color, right? I work for a female boss that gets paid more than I do. Should I gripe about the pay gap between her and I ?
