    But if the Russians wanted to influence American politics, wouldn't they just donate to the Clinton Foundation?

    I can assure you that Australians know FAR more about America and Americans, than Americans know about Australia!

    Found that out after 3 trips there. The Yanks we have here are rare but knowledgeable exceptions. Most think that Australia is just south of GERMANY!

    i agree, Americans know nothing about Australian. I lived in Australia with my parents for 3 or 4 months in 1965. It reminded me of suburban Southern California, pleasant Eucalyptus scented streets. I can locate Australia on any map, I've been to collage.
    Hey OC, you left out Jews, Asian and white college-educated women in your equation

    It's not often you get an admission of STUPID, but when you do, I believe its only right to point it out. And so above, I give you Exhibit A ...

    Firstly he asserts that Hillary has a 95% chance of winning - i.e. the popular vote, the majority, MOST

    Then he asserts that MOST of the worlds population are morons - ergo, those who vote/support Hillary are morons.

    Well done ego ..... a very special kind of STUPID indeed ..... hats off to you :/:/

    (and to top it all off, his circle jerk buddy comes in and likes the post)

    Ah I get it now. When he said the system was rigged, he didn't specify if it was rigged for or against him.

    What are the odds for "Hillary for Prison"?

    ...but I can't believe what I'm hearing on the TV at the moment, they are talking about the "elites" being invested in the Clinton campaign and controlling how the media presented Mr. Trump. They're sounding like conspiracy theorists!

    Another 11 Trump points should do it :D

    But I really think these Clintons will be on a plane very soon to a Arab country
