    Bill O'Reilly's pre-debate talk was good. He summed it up so well at the end, saying that no matter what either said in the debate, Trump's people will still be with him, and same with Hillary. I believe that to be true. It will just depend on how many she actually has voting for her, and how many he has. That is, unless the vote is tampered with which I so, pray not to happen.

    True Ken, even I noticed that. I was proud of Trump to not allow that mod to keep him from responding, wtg Donald;)

    He does have some allergies, I recognize it because I have them. I think Hillary's only "real" sickness was to do with allergies/equilibrium I'll bet. I don't know, but one thing I know is I am so glad I watched. He just did so well, he is a real man of the people, at least the "real" people of this country, as well as other countries. It's really bad when a crook can run for president, but wait, we've had a few of those haven't we;)

    That was definitely not the case with CBS.

    I don't think Trump did well at all. It's certainly not going to change my vote, but it wasn't a good performance by Trump. Agreeing with Hillary on depriving someone of their constitutional rights because the president chooses to put them on a no-fly list was just wrong, on so many levels. How can it be unconstitutional to stop and frisk someone during a period of unrest but okay to deprive someone of their constitutional rights on the whim of a president? Personally, I don't think he will do that as president but I can see him losing some support from people on that because he came off as being very weak on the Second Amendment.

    I ended up with NBC and they were way biased. I don't understand why the media (main-stream biggies) are so biased. Is it they are being bought like some say?

    I love how Hillary can simply chalk up her emails with a "I made a mistake" LOL! And the fact that she is getting away with it. But I don't believe anyone gets away with wrong-doing. Not in the end.

    I didn't have any idea what that was about Ken. I don't understand all of it. I'm saying imo, he did well against someone that is so "schooled" in political (all things political). If you're around, could you tell me about what that was all about? Was he agreeing with all of what she said, or just part. Was there a good part to what she said?

    I thought her yacks on prisons, laws, whatever, were really comical because of her being a law-breaker, but above the law.

    From the "far corner"......I watched the first half-hour, and quit in disgust. I was disappointed by Trump, and surprised by Hillary's vocal agility, not at all like the stuff being shown daily.

    Maybe it really wasn't her........unlikely as that seems, but the impossible has been foisted on the American Public many times in Presidential election matters. Simply stated, it appeared to me that Trump was having a rough time ad-libbing, while Hillary ran on like a recording.

    Rant over.

    I know, I felt that too, that's what I mean by programmed. She is programmed, and Trump isn't. That was Clinton, unless there's a secret cloning factory we don't know about. And that wouldn't surprise me.

    I think he gets so caught up in wanting to be a law and order candidate that he forgets to be a constitutional candidate, and people are looking for both. On the issue of denying guns to people on the no-fly list, he mentioned a way that someone could have their name removed from it, but with no details. Since people aren't even told that they are on the no-fly list, I don't know how they'd go about having their names removed. Even when denied permission to purchase a weapon, they aren't necessarily told why they are denied. I could be that Trump doesn't realize that someone doesn't have to do one thing wrong in order to have their name listed on a no-fly list. But if that's the case, he should know.

    Tried to go to bed and read, did manage for awhile, then I got up again to have a piece of toast and peanut butter, lol;) Saw your message, and thought I'd take a look. Only time I heard that term, no-fly was I think about "no-fly" zones. I'm not even sure about that though;)

    Ok, so Hillary wants to pull our guns, and dissolve the 2nd amendment, that I did know. The rest I don't get at all. I need to listen to that part of the debate again. Here I was glad to see them agree on some things, I think there were 2 things although I don't know what they were now. One was this I see. I think it's more than important that American's except whoever is elected, and hang together, I plan on doing that even though I can't stand Hillary Clinton. It won't do me any good, or anyone else for me to continue to fight a lost battle.

    After going ahead and watching this debate, I've learned some things, some realities, and remembered some of my most important beliefs (spiritual), and to hang onto those. But keep my feet on the ground:)

    I'll check out the vid tomorrow and see if I can pinpoint that part of the debate and listen again. The gun thing still makes zero sense to me because like I've said over and over, the bad guys aren't going to give up the guns they already have, and if they want more guns, they always seem to find someone that will supply them. That only leaves law, abiding citizens turning in their guns.

    Anyway, I'll talk to you tomorrow I'm sure. I'm glad I had you and some others to talk to tonight about all this, thank you much, denise

    I agree with Ken. I'm not changing my vote but this was not Trump's finest hour.....even though I didn't watch just going on what I read from both sides on all the places I go.

    Why the heck didn't he take some something for his darn sniffles? He could have stopped them for 2 hrs. He's not like me and has to get generic crap at the pharmacy.

    All the talk about Hillary being on death's door last week and now she looked fine and he had sniffles. Smh.

    Some of that sniffling could also be habit. It's not like he had a runny nose. While we're on the subject of "illnesses" how "did" Hillary look so good after supposedly having pneumonia. Makes me want to think that was to get some sort of sympathy vote.

    No one who understands how a person is "supposed" to act as a politician, thinks Trump is a good politician. From the start everyone I know has said "Trump" didn't do very well with this or that. As a strong supporter of Trump, with all his faults and screw-ups, I'd rather see him in the Whitehouse than anyone else I've seen running. Some people worry that he'll be (and is) a loose cannon, I say hurray!! If anyone wants more of the same as we've had, than go with that.

    Personally, I believe his faults, lack of experience, inappropriateness, oh, and that hair, omg, that hair, and all the dough he's made, that's it man, we can't have a person that's rich in the Whitehouse. Hell, those things are what this Trump-Gal loves about him. He was dead-on when he said Hillary has lots of experience, bad experience. But, but, she was so eloquent in her "words". I'd say we best stick to building him up instead of tearing him down.

    Don't get me wrong either, I do not for one minute think he is the lesser of two evils, and that's my reason for voting for him. I believe he is a good man, and shines bright, especially standing next to hillary clinton! Perfect he sure isn't, and thank God for that.

    I'm sorry Denise but I say how I feel....even if it means the truth. This is all coming from what I've read on both sides of the aisle.

    I'll have to watch it myself.


    Anyway, it's the people who haven't decided yet that should be polled or questioned as to how this debate played for them. I've already decided.

    No apology necessary CC, I say what I feel, more and more every day. I'm glad we can still do that.

    Not even all Trump supporters are the same. I think we have different reasons for why we are voting for him.

    For example, I often read from the left that all the conspiracy nut jobs are voting for him. They are mistaken because I'm so not a conspiracy theorist...total opposite.

    That's one mistake the left is making....lumping Trump supporters into one deplorable basket. :)

    People like him for different reasons....

    Lester Holt should have taken more control. When he tried to stop Trump from interrupting, Trump said (commanded) "Wait" and Lester let him continue to talk! WTH?o_O As moderator, Lester should have said "NO. We're not going to wait. You're talking out of turn. STOP." and moved on.

    They don't even "try" to hide their bs anymore because so many accept it is ok. Still, I will keep praying we out-number them:)

    I can still see the hand in the back of her head. its not the real her. also she mentioned raising the Tax's on the rich but forgot to mention the same for the middle class. He should have jumped on this one. will the mods ever mention Benghazi or the Clinton foundation etc ??? no and they probably won't.
