Of course the media is running with the story 24/7 as if they&rsquo;ve never heard that kind of talk before. Will this be the end of the election for Trump? &mdash; Quietly Concerned<br />\n Dear Quietly: &nbsp;<br />\n Donald Trump seems to bounce back from everything that has either been thrown at him or he has detonated himself. But time is beginning to run out and it appears that Team Hillary has latched onto a strategy that just might work, perhaps their &ldquo;October surprise.&rdquo;<br />\n Hillary has discovered that Trump&rsquo;s ego never backs down from personal attacks which actually keeps the negative press flowing. Knowing this, Team Hillary continues to parade out women claiming malfeasance from the &ldquo;groping octopus&rdquo; in order to divert from the real issues facing our country. The last thing Hillary wants to do is discuss the Obama economy or her foreign policy not to mention the WikiLeaks&rsquo; emails exposing the true Hillary. As one pundit put it, when Trump is talking about himself he loses; when he talks about Hillary he wins.<br />\n It&rsquo;s true that his comments were reprehensible but I do believe he has expressed proper contrition. What I find laughable is the media&rsquo;s response to Trumps 11 year old hot mic comments.&nbsp; They are reporting on this story with their faux righteous indignation acting as if their little virgin ears have never heard such crude language. They recoil at how Trump supposedly objectifies women yet conveniently forget about all the garbage produced by their friends in the music, movie and television industries.<br />\n With that in mind, if Hillary is that offended by Trump&rsquo;s remarks shouldn&rsquo;t she return all of the campaign donations she has taken from her Hollywood friends? I didn&rsquo;t think so. Then again this is the same Hillary who claims to fight for women yet whose foundation takes money from countries openly hostile to women.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: &nbsp;<br />\n First Hillary called us deplorable now her idiot husband is calling us standard rednecks. Just because I support Donald Trump doesn&rsquo;t mean I&rsquo;m either of those.&nbsp; I&rsquo;m in management in the software industry and have never hunted, fished or worn flannel. Liberals aren&rsquo;t supposed to use a broad brush yet listen to those two. Why are the Clintons making these attacking statements? &mdash; White Collar Trash<br />\n Dear Trash: &nbsp;<br />\n The statements from the former first couple were not random thoughts gone astray but a calculated strategy straight from page 14 of the liberal playbook. &ldquo;When losing on the issues try to demonize your opponent through broad negative remarks that are difficult to defend in short sound bites.&rdquo;<br />\n As far as Bill&rsquo;s claim that he was a &ldquo;standard redneck,&rdquo; give me a break. He played saxophone in the marching band for Pete&rsquo;s sake.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: &nbsp;<br />\n I can&rsquo;t believe what I just read. The University of Florida will offer special counseling to students who are offended by Halloween costumes.The country that I love with all of my heart and soul is slowly becoming a country of weenies. Can this be real? &mdash; I Got a Rock<br />\n Dear Rock: &nbsp;<br />\n I apologize for doubting but I had to do some research because I didn&rsquo;t believe your report could possibly be true.&nbsp; Sadly the University of Florida does indeed offer this type of counseling. Here are some highlights from the newsletter the administration sent out to reassure their fragile students.<br />\n &ldquo;Regardless of the intent, these costumes can perpetuate negative stereotypes causing harm and offense to groups of people.&rdquo;<br />\n &ldquo;If you are troubled by an incident please know that there are many resources available including a 24/7 counselor.&rdquo;<br />\n &ldquo;Finally students are instructed to report any incidents to the Bias Education and Response Team.&rdquo;<br />\n I believe the proper response from university officials to the Florida students should be &ldquo;College is to help prepare you for the real world. In the real world you will confront offensive scenarios almost daily. The only &ldquo;safe spaces&rdquo; are between your ears, in your heart and in your gut. If you are offended by a Halloween costume then you are doomed. Also please don&rsquo;t tell anyone you graduated from the University of Florida.&rdquo;</p>\n<p> E-mail your questions to <a href=\"mailto:marklevy92@aol.com\">marklevy92@aol.com</a>.
