"Hatred filled with anger" - have you ever seen one of us on the R(ight) side post "Dems suck"? Nope, just other insults and false accusations. 

For example - what compares to "Reps suck"?

And look at all of the hatred for the makers vs the takers here. And look at all of the hatred for the "takers" vs the "makers".

It isn't hatred. It is reminding people something they would rather overlook as they attack the self-sufficient.

Then there is the obsession with Nazis, fascists, Kluxers, alt-right, etc. etc. etc.  Then there is the obsession with "Marxist", "socialist", "dependency".

What do you compare the reality of "dependency" with - Nazis or fascists? Do you consider "socialist" on a par with Kluxers? Be careful, you might be calling some newly out of the closet Dems that. As to Marxism, it is a political ideology the same as Conservatism. As such, it is certainly worth open and honest discussion.

 

No chas- you on the other side own all that hate jazz. That pesky reality thing disagrees with your view on this.

You are going to have to find some new "reality". None of the above made the grade.

I understand your problem. Occasionally I run into someone who is of the neoMarxist belief. Some are great to discuss politics with. They have a deep understanding of their beliefs and an understanding of Conservatism.

 

But then there are those who have been used. They have been convinced that they are unable to make it on their own and need the government to "carry" them. They have been convinced that the successful did not make it on hard work, but rather they stole it from the less successful. So, their "discussion" involves 1% vs 99%, Nazis, fascists, racists, alt-right and the rest of the litany. Such people use such logic as "Republicans suck" and "the pig in the WH" while claiming to be of the intellectual elite who know more than others.

 

You're right, a smile and a pat on the head is the best reaction.

Well, I guess we will have to see if hurricane Florence makes landfall on our Shores. Since the Trump Administration, has had prior experience in dealing with hurricanes during his first year in office. I just hope that the Government response is swift. I would hope that  better response plans have been put in place.

I am sure that after November's elections, a Democrat candidate will emerge that will defeat in 2020 whomever replaces trump after he is taken out of office or he resigns.  Smiley LOL

Never confuse Trump Cult members by using FACTS. Three days ago, an ABC News/Washington Post poll put Trump's approval rating at 36%.

 

The Kaiser Family Foundation poll put his approval rating at 37%.

I`m hoping Elizabeth Warren is the candidate picked by the Democrats.

Apparently not in his maladministration, but congresscritters who depend on him enraging his moronic base and driving them to the polls are still all Der Trump all the Time, and of course his lofo's who love him because he hates the same people they hate - minorities, women, Muslims, refugees, immigrants, the poor and John McCain.

No, that is petty, personal and insulting. What about the thoughts do you disagree with and why? That is the basis of "discussion".

Unfortunately we have several dedicated members of the Trump Cult. They worship Trump who can do no wrong in their eyes. They defend everything Trump says or does.

 

Thankfully most decent people in American repudiate the hate and warped bigotry offered by the White Supremacists and Nazis in Charlottesville on Saturday. Trump Lovers also pretend the protest comes only from Liberals, but that is very far from the truth. Outrage comes from:

  • High ranking members (Generals) of the U.S. Military
  • CEOs of many major corporations
  • Republican Members of the House and Senate such as Bob Corker
  • The former director of the CIA
  • Sorry, David Duke isn't on the list
  • etc.

Your hateful opinion of the POTUS does not belong on this venue. I am neither a republican nor a Trump fan, however he is still the president and should be respected as such. This trash doesn’t belong on here and just cost you my membership. Please refrain from ever sending me any correspondence from your classless association again. You should be ashamed of this.

As a Republican and an American I was taught as a child to respect people that merit respect. and I find it very difficult to respect a man that has been proven to be a serial adulterer. a cheat, a liar, and a man that has been throwing this country into a chaos that now we seem to think is normal. Unfortunately, you think that his job as President absolve him of any wrong doing. but that is not way that I was taught. Morality cannot be changed and not job absolve you or anyone of that.

You respect the office not the person. The person has to earn respect and Trump has not earned mine. In modern times with the exception of Nixon, I respected all the Presidents up until now. It doesn't mean I agreed with all of their policies or their behaviors. I never thought one of them would sell us out to Russia until now.     

He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone. Do you sleep under Trumps bed?  So you know what he does.  Every single president has done something sinful.  All I know is he is against abortion and my family are all working in Detroit.  The economy is fabulous.  Yes he has a big mouth, and I hate that.  But I need to look at the big picture.

Oh yes we have, Ask Ivana Trump.  ask his present wife. and Stormy Daniels. they will tell you, they have been under his bed. And yes, we all have sinned, but we have had the capacity to recognize our sins and atone for them not feel that we are empowered by them.

Enabling a serial sinner does not make it moral, it akes it an enabler of sinners.

@GlenK986582—Hate filled people who do abhorrent and hateful things are usually not spoken of in glowing terms—thus the commentary RE: the disgusting animal called trump. The reality of the type of subhuman trump is may also weigh heavily on verbiage used to describe him.

Personally, I will never write phony respectful things about anyone so underserving of respect. 

BTW, do the moderators know you have decided to take over their jobs?? Here’s a hint for you. In this forum,  people are free to express their opinions, whether all approve or not. Guess you and trump have much in common—the attempted circumventing of free speech. So sad!

I have often said I do not have a "hateful" view of the temporary POTUS. I do recognize that he has no experience in the job and is attempting to do everything differently than any of his predecessors, especially Obama. Sometimes there are good reasons, backed by institutional experience, as to why procedures are used. Based on the chaos of the WH and the complete incompetence we have seen Trump demonstrate in almost every action, I would say he could learn a thing from his predecessors.  

 

PENCE IN 2019!

"I voted for the agenda that President Trump ran on and still support it."

How's that working out for you?

Here's the Trump Agenda

  • No significant legislation passed
  • No health care reform
  • No infrastructure upgrades
  • No wall on the Mexican border
  • No tax reform
  • No deficit reduction plan
  • Trump insults everyone who disagrees with him
  • He attacks the FBI and our Intelligence Agencies
  • The Republican controlled House & Senate initiated 3 investigations of the Trump Administration
  • Chaos and dysfunction in the White House
  • Is it the White House or a Reality Show?

But the above proves that's the agenda Trump Lovers continue to support.

Typical - a list of items totally out of the context of the point trying to be made followed by "But the above proves....".  

Did you not notice that much of that requires Congressional action. Did you not notice that investigations were not part of his agenda? Did you not notice that "insulting" is not an agenda item, it is an interpersonal item.

 

Try to get your blind hatred under control and it may be possible to post rational opposition to President Trump.
