Because Godzilla likes it when America is the villain not the hero.

Why, it serves no purpose other than to tarnish us.

Upping sanctions seems reasonable without knowing deeper details.

By: Godzilla

Iran is testing missiles in direct violation of the “deal” made with the UN. Should sanctions be “snapped back”?

And this is what you get when you let people who don’t understand anything about ecosystems talk. Ignoring that without more information I dno’t buy the idea that wood is sustainable. One need only look around but burning trees is harder than it looks and they kinda serve lots of other purposes.

By: Godzilla

Imagine that….wood….sustainable….duh. Here’s another revelation for you environmentalist types….if you harvest timber, you’ll have less fires, which burn more trees than if you had just harvested them in the first place!

Maybe. It’s certainly not impossible and he can stick around. But he’s not winning right now.

Hillary? Lucky. Whatever else you feel about her the woman has literally spent the last forty years at least with the singular goal of being President and she might lose again. This has nothing to do with luck. This is the culmination or a project that’s been in the works for longer than I’ve been breathing.

Joe Biden will not step in. You make the silliest predictions sometimes.

By: Godzilla

Chris Christie blew his chance when he didn’t run in 2012. We would have a different President now if he had, but he’s still young enough that he has an outside shot at a future run. Hillary is the luckiest human being on the planet…..right up there with the guy that drove over the bridge in Iraq a split second before it blew. It’s fucking scary to imagine what kind of network one must have to pull off what she has and may get away with. I hope her luck has run out. My prediction will then probably come true…..Joe Biden steps in and won’t even have to campaign.

By: Sean Renaud

Well I expect one of your losers to stick around out of spite but yeah. Rubio is a solid winning package. Assuming Hillary get her birthright finally Rubio paints a stark contrast as young minority. She’s a woman sure but that didn’t save her against Obama either. He’s not “True” establishment. Despite the Establishment being about to fall inline with him since they’ve basically got the Beast they unleashed, the guy they all hate (and I don’t know why) left at the top. Chris Christie was always a joke, Jeb just can’t catch fire, Carson has proven to be inept beyond being black and calling out Obama. He’s essentially Stacy Dash but she knows her place.
