I think I understand, and it's Unbelievable.

 

Republicans lie biggly and other republicans swallow the lies without blinking. 

 

To continue the redistribution of wealth from the middle class to the very top, they tell their dupes stopping the flow would be SOCIALIST, and somehow that prevents a single GOPer from actually examining the facts.

 

To begin their campaign against Elizabeth Warren they re-issued Trump's "Pocahontas" ethnic slurs, and when that didn't get any more traction than it did before, they decided to call her a Commie.

 

Next they pretend stopping ICE from riping infants and children from their mother's arms, arms that will now never hold their child again, must require abolishing ICE and claiming ICE protects us from invasion by a foreign power instead of refugees who love America enough to risk death to come here

 

Then they pretend we'll be safe with walls along the border without ever explaining HOW, since it would take the entire US Army to patrol our 7,458 miles of International land borders. (of course they only want to wall up the SOUTHERN border of 1,933 miles, but since Canada hasn't banned flights from Mexico, that will not accomplish the Republican objective).

 

Then they use a single op-ed piece to claim the Democratic Party wants to abolish the Presidency instead of simply wanting to restore an ounce of dignity to the office by flushing the current occupant.

 

Most recently, they think Ms Warren is proposing to seize all Corporate dividends and hand them out on a per-capita basis to everybody in America, and they say this without a trace of a smirk or giggle - they should really try stand up - they're naturals.

 

What one must understand from all this is they are TERRIFIED of Warren in 2020, and as they did with Hillary, they have begun slandering her with every nonsensical lie they can concoct so their lofo base will be sufficiently enraged to vote.

 

The fact their base is swallowing this is indeed UNBELIEVABLE.

I agree with you on that. The posts that we should see should be posts in which they really name all of those  TRump Followers that are giving a very bad name to Republicans, they need to be unmasked, No time to loose on silly cartoons or silly posts attacking only Trump. There are others that need to be named and kicked off from Government.

Soosie you say that you are the mother of a 40 year old, well I am the mother of older children than 40, I spoiled them as much as I could and I am proud to say that they are all independent and very responsible adults. and I am also not a Trump follower What do you think about that? Please don't tell me that only the people and parents that support Trump are the only ones that can be responsible parents and are the only ones that do actually expect free things for their family. That is what you said. and I am surprised that an intelligent person that i know you are, You can actually believer your words.
Have you become to seriously impaired by your political beliefs that you really really actually believe what you have posted?.....@rker.......what the hey are you reading? I said nothing about anyone else's parenting skills. If you can find those words, please copy and paste them. Some people would not be happy if you hung them with a new rope. Now, having said that I am sure you will find it to be death threats. This place makes me need a padded cell due to the craziness.

What about the daily multiple thread generator on many nonsensical topics?

@Epster.......As the parent of a 40's something son, I have beaten myself up from time to time for spoiling him and keep remembering what a great Basketball Coach told me. He told me to stop trying to give him so many material things, that all I OWED him was my love. I am thankful that he stands on his own in spite of my Mom skills.

I think I find it almost unbelievable that people in a group of senior adults would think there should be a free ride. I must be much older than most here. I see so much tunnel vision where people keep throwing out what they see as problems, but when asked about their thoughts on a solution, they come back with a response to degrade Trump and raise Obama's throne higher.

I have said I come here for entertainment and I stand by that statement no matter how loud some hollar that I don't see what is important to them. If I tried to take this seriously, I would have constant heartburn.

Please don't think that I am trying to tell you that you shouldn't support Trump by all means please do And please continue to really have that tunnel vision that you are blaming others for not seeing what you ovbiously see.

@Soosie  A non-parent, I don't have maternal skills, so cannot speak to that. (I mean, I raised two exceptional greyhounds, one grumpy cat, a few flighty finches, a dozen mild mannered turkeys, a thousand fish and hundreds of good natured chickens, but that's different) Smiley Happy

 

I can, however, speak to the value of doing without, the incomparable value of struggle and of the great character building exercise of pulling oneself up by one's bootstraps.

 

Like you, I find it incredible that members of the senior population think little of earning one's way. I suggest that they give away everything they have amassed --every knick knack, every tome, every dime-- to those in need (illegal immigrants, perhaps?) as a place to start. Lead by example, I always say. Smiley Happy

The thing that strikes me most while watching all this is that the 1% has perfected their game of controlling the masses. They push us around like so many chess pieces. And we let them. Which is to say, methinks we deserve this emotional slavery.

 

The above is sadly quite typical of some here. If one disagrees with them it is simply inconceivable that they were able to come up with alternate opinions on their own - it must be that they are being manipulated.

 

 


"Alternative opinions of their own" would be refreshing. I see the same opinions posted, often in the same language, over and over again regardless of the actual topic. It is as if the posters cannot read or comprehend. It is as if they have been told by Pavlov to simply repeat the same thing over and again.

 

I find it comical, and silly, and think such behavior accomplishes nothing outside of wasting time, but hey, knock yourself out. Smiley Happy
