IF THIS IS AMERICA - THE NEW YORK TIMES

Honored Social Butterfly

jim - I get the feeling that Roger Cohen does not like President Trump. And yet, he attributes amazing power to him - he can make that roof rust that much in only 11 months.

 

By the way - that was quite a classy response you got to your "Merry Christmas".

"American cannot be first, as Trump insists.  It can be a thug and a bully only in the betrayal of itself.  It must be itself, a certain idea of libery and democracy and openness, or it is nothing, just a squalid, oversized greedy place past the zenith of its greatness."

 

Sigh.   Sad.

Bravo!  IMO, that very well written essay speaks to how 2/3rd's of all Americans feel.

 

Thanks for posting this, A.P.

Btw, the picture in your article looks like one of the buildings on my property.  I don’t recall signing a release recently... Hmmm, need to look into this...

The house shown in link I guess deteriorated in the 11 months since Trump has been President . More than likely it got in the condition is in the 8 years Obama  was President but face it -It is FAKE news New York Times.  Once in a while the NYT does publish the truth -2 days ago  it pronounce that Fox and Friends was the most powerful time slot of all cable news.

Being "the most powerful time slot of all cable news" is not synonymous with 'broadcasting truth and unbiased news'.  Anyone not knowing the difference falls into the category of:

 

“The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated Communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction (i.e. the reality of experience) and the distinction between true and false (i.e. the standards of thought) no longer exist”

@ChasKy53—Absolutely spot on and very much in keeping with posters here who can no longer tell the difference between truth and fiction, reality and fantasy, and, worst of all, are unwilling to discover the difference.

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!

Highly unlikely - Not even Fox calls that slimy swamp of propaganda a "News" program.

LMAO—Those who cry fake news are the largest consumers. NYT—extremely credible!

The House under Obama was controlled by REPUBLICANS sworn by McConnell to obstruct at every turn.

These same fools who obstructed Mr. Obama as he strove to make this country a better place are now falling all over themselves kissing the feet of a fool who on an almost minute by minute destroys the credibility of the same.

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!

62 million believed trump's lies and voted for him.

 

That's 19.5 percent of the US population of 323 million.

 

The other 80.5 percent didn't believe him - they still don't.

 

Trump's statements have been repeatedly fact checked with one consistent result - trump lies about 70% of the time...

 

Four out of five Americans know trump lies, and know his supporters tell lies in support of the BLOTUS.

 

He now has the lowest approval rating - and still sinking - of any president in history.

Yep  A P, and as long as the majority feels this way there is hope for America. The minority you speak of and go buy a 'Tumpy Bear' to give them security when the trump house falls down.

Was Rasmussen doing polls back then?

Was that poll on Lincoln a statistically valid poll? 

Or is that yet another of the same kind of lies that trump and his republican/conservative trolls continue to tell us - based on the republican/conservative assumption that the majority of American Citizens are as obtuse and dim-witted as trump-suckers have been demonstrating they are?

As a side bar AP, I had to memorize that for a school punishment one time. Kinda negated the power of it. lol
So it begins.
