Buffet "Have you no sense of decency sir?"




Trump claims debate is rigged against him by disallowing cursing and name calling.  "If you rule that out, I have nothing to say".  He beat 16 others by his informative, bombastic style.  He had been saving the show stopping big "F*** Y***" for Hillary which was going to put him over the top with his followers, particularly the  Christian right.

Recently, however, he seemed to pledge support not just the Constitution but beyond -- pleading to defend "Article XII" which is two articles too many for the Constitution.

Afghan Cleric Defends Marriage To Six-Year-Old Girl As A “Religious Offering”

150px-muslim_woman_in_yemenAfghan cleric, Mohammad Karim, is in his sixties but he decided to marry a younger bride. For most people (including all non-pedophiles), this might mean a woman half his age in her thirties. For Karim it meant a six-year-old girl. After being arrested, Karim insisted that the girl was given to him in wedlock as a “religious offering.” The little girl could only say "I am afraid of this man.”

Hillary_Clinton_Testimony_to_House_Select_Committee_on_BenghaziHillary Clinton admitted this Sundaythat it is "fair" for voters to have questions about her truthfulness. However, she then proceeded to make the very type of statement that has undermined her credibility with voters.  Despite the express statement of the FBI that her emails contained clearly classified information, including some with classified markings, Clinton insisted that there was no such finding and seemed to deflect blame for her conduct to subordinates.

Warren Buffett Challenges Trump to Show Tax Returns, Says He's 'Afraid'



Business magnate Warren Buffett took on Donald Trump over his refusal to release his tax returns -- issuing the real estate mogul a challenge to put his cards on the table.
Speaking at a Hillary Clinton rally in Omaha, Nebraska today, the multi-billionaire joked he would meet Trump "any place, any time between now and election" to go over each other's tax returns. The GOP nominee has claimed that he can't release his tax returns because he is being audited.
"Now I've got news for him, I'm under audit too," Buffett said. "There are no rules against showing your tax returns and just let people ask us questions about the items that are on there."
Buffett instead suggested that Trump is withholding his tax returns intentionally.
"You're only afraid if you've got something to be afraid about," he told to the crowd. "He's not afraid of the IRS. He's afraid because of you."
Buffett also challenged Trump on his claim that he's "made a lot of sacrifices."
"Donald Trump and I haven't sacrificed anything," Buffett said. "No member of the Buffett family has gone to Iraq or Afghanistan. No member of the Trump family has gone to Iraq or Afghanistan."
The second richest man in the country closed out his introduction of Clinton with an offer to voters. Stressing Nebraska’s importance come Nov. 8, Buffett said he is launching a website called drive2vote.org — where he has reserved a trolley to drive people to the polls.
"It seats 32. I'm going to be on it all day. I’m going to do selfies, whatever it takes." Buffett said. "My goal is to have the turnout here be the highest percentage of potential voters of any district in the country."
Clinton upped the ante on that goal, making a promise to return to the district if they have the highest percentage of voters.
"I will shortly after I become president, sometime as soon as I can arrange it, come back here," she said, "and Warren and I will dance in the streets of Omaha together!"
