@TEJANOLASEREYES – you ride a horse proportional to your size, that’s all. Kids ride ponies, adults ride horses of various sizes, armored knights rode Percherons, which are massive. Think of carrying someone around on your back – how big a person would you want to carry?
So much for the “moral” party.
@Garycooper, he rode in on a horse to the polls. And…For those wondering about why horsepeople are mad at Roy Moore:
According to friends of mine who own and ride horses and know their stuff, three things:
1. The horse was too small. Made it easier for him to get on and off, but it means he was too heavy.
2. He doesn’t know how to ride all that way, which is harder on the horse
3. The horse was clearly spooked by the crowds and the camera flashes, and any experienced person would have understood that and been able to handle the horse better. Moore apparently just hauled back on the reins in a way you should never do, essentially hurting the horse.
For those wondering about why horsepeople are mad at Roy Moore:
George HW Bush, Ronald Reagan, Ike Eisenhower…
@getaclue: if what you assert is true, then a number of people in Congress and the President should resign, as Al Franken did. Haven’t noticed that happening yet.
@Superposition: entertainment personalities can’t rationalize or hide bad behavior as well? Notice who is in the White House lately?
Someone should sue FoxNews for false advertising. They admit that most of their programming is NOT news, but people think propaganda like Fox & Friends or Hannity actually have some kind of “truth” associated with them.
Here’s an idea: Fox is largely responsible for distorting politics in this country – could we try to put them all in jail for election fraud and voter manipulation?
Contrary to what he claims, Trump will frequently settle lawsuits to make them disappear, usually with a nondisclosure clause. He has used NDCs as a matter of course with his settlements with divorced wives, his contracts with business partners, and even when hiring his campaign workers. He knows doggoned well he is vulnerable to lawsuits, or he wouldn’t protect himself so thoroughly against them.
As for his frequent threats to sue, it’s just bullying. If he can make someone back down with a threat, he’s safe.
@ANTIQUETRACMAN – Gee, so Obama was trying to “change America for the worse” by reducing warfare and increasing diplomacy to save our troops, by restoring our economy after the Bush meltdown, by saving the auto industry, by helping provide affordable healthcare for all Americans, and by supporting working and middle-class Americans? Whose side are you on? Are you off your meds, or are you cashing your checks in rubles?
