The Biggest Loser of last nights 173rd Republican debate this year (or at least it felt that way) was not a Senator, or a Governor, or a duck lipped rich guy.  No it was everyone's favorite wing place,Buffalo Wild Wings.  Senator Marco Rubio was kind enough to let us know  that one of Trump Universities "professors" was little more than a manager at a chain restaurant.  Now I do truly enjoy B Dubs... as it is affectionately called in some circles.  I do feel a little bad for the negative publicity they did not ask for last night... but I guess any press is good press.  In other BREAKING NEWS Donald Trump has announced that if elected he will be appointing the General Manager from his favorite Olive Garden as Ambassador to the United Nations.  He predicts that this will strengthen our Geo-political ties to Italy. #nevertrump


Death of a Con-Man.  I always find a way to include an Erick Erickson article in my Watercooler.  Why, you may ask?  I don't know I guess I am just a fan boy... So any who here is your dose of Erick from sister site Townhall.  Full article here.

In fact, Donald Trump has an amazing ability to make money by convincing others that reality is not real and Trump's lies are. Like a con artist swindling money from a widow by tapping into her sadness, Donald Trump now stands to make a fortune by tapping into the anger of many Americans who have long felt ignored.

Donald Trump will pay these angry Americans as much attention as possible to swindle them out of their future hopes as he has done to so many. Those voting for Trump have seen Washington betray them, which has set them up for the perfect con by a consummate con artist. Then in the ultimate con, Donald Trump will concede November to his friend, Hillary Clinton, whose husband encouraged Trump to jump into the Republican campaign for that very reason.


NRA v. Clinton Round Two.  Wayne LaPierre the President of the National Rifle Association does not like Hillary Clinton.  I know that may not shock you.  But Mr. LaPierre had the opportunity to speak at CPAC and unloaded on Hildabeast.

Clinton “has been clear about one thing – she hates the second amendment”, LaPierre told the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) near Washington. “She hates us and is coming after every bit of our freedom.”

He added: “Mrs Clinton, if you want to come after the NRA, if you want a fight over the God-given rights of America’s 100 million gun owners, if you want to turn this election into a bare-knuckled brawl for the survival of our constitutional freedom, bring it on. We aren’t going anywhere – and we aren’t hard to find.”

Gun Confiscation.  Staying on the theme of gun grabbing socialists.  This short NRA produced video is about what happened in Venezuela when the government came and took everyone's guns away.  *SPOILER ALERT* The only people left with guns are the rich who can afford security and the drug cartels and gang members whose guns were already illegal.  I am sure you already know this, but maybe it is something you can share with your hippy dippy aunt who thinks a modern sporting rifle is a "machine gun".


"Priests" Killing Babies.  If any of you have not read strieff's article today about a "women of the cloth" who un-ashamadly aborted her baby to further her career  please go check it out.  Sorry if I am wasting space here again addressing old news but I just can not shake this one.  This women's deviance makes my skin crawl.  I very badly want to post the address of the church this monster claims to shepherd but I am sure that doing so would violate Red State policy... so I won't.


So that is where I will bow out for today Redstaters I hope you will comment below about whatever has caught your attention today.  Remember this is an open thread so you can post about anything you like.
