    Actually, I would think it’d be more like..Eye of newt, and toe of frog,Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting,Lizard’s leg, and howlet’s wing,—For a charm of powerful trouble,Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

    Why is it that Republicans/Fox “news” viewers are so happy with Trump refusing to release his tax returns?

    Are they just as afraid of the contents as he is?

    And do they seriously believe that Trump U did NOT commit fraud?

    By the way, I love how Toles draws Trump with the pouty lips and the teeny tiny hands!

    Trump has obviously been intentionally alienating all the voter blocs he can. I think he’s on Hillary’s payroll, and is the reason she says, “The fix is in!”

    On the other hand.. the road to looking like a fool is getting wider all the time.

    I was reminded of the story that the “needle” was actually a small, narrow gate, but I like this examination much better. Especially because it includes this little gem from Talmudic literature: “They do not show a man a palm tree of gold, nor an elephant going through the eye of a needle.”

    All he has to do is pivot his way through the needle. It is surprising that the GOP elected a man based on his straight talk has now changed all of those “straight-talk” positions. But, anyone who has resigned themselves to voting for Trump wouldn’t change that position just because he is saying and doing crazy things.

    Elephant or camel, Trump’s ego would be far more difficult to fit through.

    I mean really, Zero Hedge… the Onion? Both equally legitimate news sources.

    Mr Bean with his head stuffed all the way inside a turkey, staggering around the kitchen comes to mind.

    I read Zero Hedge for laughs.

    Is Zero Hedge anything more than a clickbait hotspot?

    @ GuyFawkes…perfectly illustrated.Thanks! :) @ kurtzwicky Ohoh, I hadn’t but now you have me curious :( @ UncleJoe great graph! @ OldCoal I had not heard of Zero Hedge before so I looked it up. I expected a rampant conspiratorial webpage but was surprised to check references by the likes of Paul Krugman rolling their eyes at the site. Reading the site’s history I can see how it sort of started but also how it ended up. It ramped up to become a rampant conspiratorial site. As you said. No wonder Tom Hyland reads, and believes, its crap. @ DrDon1 Someone must agree with you since it’s also mentioned in the wiki entry.
