Tonight is the final debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. I recommend you open at least a dozen giant, industrial strength barf bags in advance. As the moderator is Chris Wallace from the Republican Reichsministry of Propaganda, Faux Noise, I expect him to join Trump in tag-teaming Hillary. The New York Times has composed a dozen prospective questions, two for each segment. Here are the first three.

Well, I won't see it, because I won't be watching (and my gratitude to those who do watch so I don't have to knows no bounds). But it has been suggested that she pull a Donald and answer actual issue related questions regardless of what is asked, and I think that might turn out to be fun.

I don't know if I will be able to stomach it at flawed as Hillary can be, I am just so sad it is not a slam-dunk and still scared that somehow the fear and hate-mongering will win out like in 2000, 2004.....then again hope did overcome in 2008 and 2012

I can only hope for HRC to remain cool, calm, and collected. I don't like the fact that Faux's moderator is Chris Wallace either.
Actually, I wish that there wasn't a debate tonight. DT's going to be like a loose cannon, and Wallace isn't going to help either. Shame I can't yell, "You're Fired!!!" at him. Oh, wait...I can. LOL.

Since I will be getting the play by play for the next two weeks I think I will not watch. It just can't compete with a little 1964 movie called " Fail Safe" - it's about a miscommunication which sends planes to drop atomic bomb on Moscow. Right after is Advise and Consent - confirmation hearings on appointment of Secretary of state. If I remember correctly - They are well worth the watch on Turner Classic Movies.
And so appropriate for tonight. Henry Fonda in both w/ Walter Matthieu and Charles Laughton. Heaven.

I will try to watch it online. 
NY Times has some excellent questions which I hope will get asked.  I have absolutely no faith in Chris Wallace to be fair, and I don't completely share CBS's hope for Wallace.  
While Clinton is not perfect, Drumpf is much worse.

I'll pass on the speech ,.thanks Tom. If I was an American voter I'd pass on voting for either of those two candidates.I question the integrity of one and the sanity of the other.

Even if I had a TV I wouldn't watch this spectacle...two evils avoiding having to answer questions of any substance that will let American voters know exactly where they stand...on anything. Thanx TomCat.

I watched, and was surprised at how Chris Wallace handled it.  He did not appear to me to be giving Trump the advantage, but asked hard questions  to both.  Trump as usual was full of bombast and did not answer any of the questions and kept interrupting Clinton, and Wallace called him out on that.
He did ask about how they would handle the outcome of the election andpointed out that others have always accepted the result for the good of the country.  Trump wants to wait and see.  We all know if he loses he is going to try to start a revolution.

I managed to watch the entire walls are now a consistent Linda Blair green from ceiling to floor. He makes me SICK and worse, LIVID. I do become physically ill when I try to watch that oral sphincter of his in operation. Dawg, I wanna puke just from the mental image. Drumpf, presidential......NEVER.

However, there is a LIE written by Robert Pear.....and it's this....."But an aging population is a driver of rising government debt and of a budget deficit that climbed last fiscal year after several years of decline."

Once again ma peeps.....Social Security IS NOT A PART OF THE DEBT OR DEFICIT. Period. It's in trouble because 1) CONGRESS CRITTERS keep dipping their grubby greedy little hands into the pot for their pwn pet projects and 2) the affluent ARE NOT paying their fair share. The cap needs to be lifted and that needs to be done RIGHT NOW. It is a LIE Rethug idiots like to perpetuate for the sake of fear and for the purpose of they can really go to town STEALING from the American People.

Sphinctermanbaby committed treason yet again last night, but no one cares. Nothing will be done to that Nazi Bast*rd....ever. He does not want a peacful transition of power, he wants his goons and minions to riot and try to take this country by force. He is a sore loser when he cannot get what he wants. He will be no different with wanting the WH..

I was surprised the Chris Wallace did as he did – I thought he was very fair but I see Trump is already complaining that he asked "unfair questions". Most agree that Trump did okay the first half hour and blew it completely the other hour… he stayed at the podium at the end while Hillary was walking around – and then, red-faced and looking angry, he left right away leaving his kids to handle the aftermath. I thought it was wonderful to see him lose it and newscasters seem to agree that his refusal to accept election results was the nail in the coffin.

"Nail in the coffin,..." - Trump hits it himself. Our world is full of error, misdeeds, manipulations, contrived schemes, win-at-all-costs, devil be damned mindsets, fin anglings, and all the rest of our behaviors that came from our dinosaur brains. He is willing to insight more destruction in his homeland if he can't win what he wants. His future plans are to keep cashing in on the Trump-Cash-Machine. Win or loss the election, Trump's ego has absolutely no desire to embrace humility or any of the qualities that our world holds as a virtue. I'm aware that business's bottom line does not list virtue as a profit. I am also aware that when Trump beat his chest with his 'star and wealth' manliness, he was quite comfortable to brag of his free and easy control over the women he violated and took to the locker room to dishonor in thought, word, and if possible, his deeds. Whatever Hillary has done in life, we cannot claim our own purity. However, I do not believe her heart is empty, nor her mind cloudy regarding what the presidency demands of the free world's leader. Trump is pleased to just keep his own income taxes free of clutter and if others are abused by his style, well, pity those fools. Our country's dirty laundry is blowing in the breeze. The Clinton family issues are flapping out there, too. Trump's dirty American behavior is flaming red with anger and hostility. I can only speculate how 2017 will unfold. We will not see Trump's humility evolve from losing this big race for power.

It just goes to show you that Trump is living with ET and Peter Pan in Never, Never Land. He sounded like a mad 5 year old. He might not accept the outcome of the election? Seriously? Okay, go ahead. Trump looks like a fool and is just doing real damage to his "brand". Who wants to do business with a sexual predator? How many companies in the world want to be associated with the sexual predator known as Trump. He's a sad and pathetic little man who acts like a petulant 5 year old.

I have to agree with Arielle, and not for the first time. The Daily News related headline, today, reads "Trump: 'Hillary's rigged the whole world against me.'" The New Yorl Post, owned, and operated by Rupert Murdoch's
I watched the whole thing, had been reedit pull the plug on it, but managed. I am glad that I saw Empty Orange say his piece about the election results in live time. Wallace, apparently stunned some, asked him a second time, but the ass just stood his shit!
News Company: "'Trump harrumphs in final debate. He's in a fix! Refuses to say he'll accept election results. Oh, and Emmy's were rigged, too.'" YES, that is the NY POST, bastion of right wing, idiotic, propaganda!!! I wish I had been able to see the look on my devout Republican cousin, and her husband, when they retreived their door stop copy. One of the western, GOP congressmen, last night, said, in response to this uncivility, "that's beyond the pale." Mayhap the Rump is toast!!!!!!!!!

Sorry about the typo, above, I thought I was putting the "I watched...,"piece at the beginning.

I early-voted for Hillary last week.
I watched most of the debate - Hillary looked about 55 yrs old - fresh and pretty. Trump looked 100 yrs old, especially after the debate was over. He was frowning and slumped over and barely greeted his family. He got creamed.

Well, I couldn't watch the debate as it was around 5 AM local time, not when I'm at my best. But I can assure you I've seen and read more on the subject today than many Americans. Although only a few of the very relevant questions were put forward, it hardly seemed to matter what either candidate had to say about it. Only one thing did and that was Drumpf's show stopper:" I'm keeping you in suspense" on whether or not he'd accept the outcome of the election. Or as my newspaper put it "Donald Trump takes American democracy down in his fall". That completely overshadowed any answers given to other important questions, which is a pity I must say.

Didn't watch it but everything I've read today says Hillary wiped the floor with him. And his "refuse to concede" comment hurt him more than anything. What is he threatening an armed revolution if he doesn't win? Hillary seemed to have made the point so well that this is just more of his usual blather. He whined the Emmy's were rigged when his stupid show (which I NEVER watched, not a minute because I could never stand this creep and I surely know now how good my instincts were even back then) didn't win an Emmy - he still hasn't gotten over that, whined about it last night. And he'll be whining about this too for the rest of his life. The single worst presidential candidate of my lifetime. I'll never see one worse. What I really, really want is for HIM to truly get that, for that truth to sink in at some point and him know just how rotten a candidate and person he really is. For the delusion to be over and for him to see himself as he truly is. A self centered, misogynistic bully in a caricature of a human male, a bad joke, but a joke nonetheless with that stupid little index finger pointed up like it was his pinky. Detestable thing, truly.

Watched the whole thing and couldn't believe how mad/frustrated/angry/disgusted DT looked through the majority of the debate. Of course, it only got worse after about the first 30 minutes. Hillary stayed calm and collected, obviously very prepared for DT and his tantrums. They will be talking about this for at least a couple of weeks. Thanks for the post, TomCat.
