Then why have you posted such divisive topics?

NATO and the member contries have supported America's ideals and values for decades.  Russia has NOT.


Is that the function and reason for existence of NATO?


No, and the purpose of the President isn't to divide American's, but that doesn't seem to trouble you.


Evasive - again, is that the function and reason for NATO?

 

If you don't have an answer you can always post a rabbit-hole picture or something deep about Judge Judy.


It's always informative to see lo-fo responses here.  Now the word "no" to a yes/no question is evasive; so they repeat the question.

If we think we are only one man as a country, we fail. Smart people work together. Smart people do not sit back and moan. Smart people do not hit the streets and march for causes they sometimes don't really understand. Have you ever worked for a company where you were one of perhaps hundreds who were working for the success of the company? It is doubtful they all have the same likes, wants, ideas, but they do work for the success of that company. If they don't they find another location. I have reached the point that I see those who might need a new location.

Please tell us exactly what it is that you are doing to unite us.


While I am sure that Soosie will have a more extensive answer for "us". I would like to correct "us" - we were not divided by ONE man; we were and are divided by the irrational hatred for ONE man.

Please feel welcome to reread the @Olderscout66 post listing the one sided gop actions. And:

We grasp who the real enemy is

We grasp the real America

We grasp Patriotism

We grasp the Truth

We grasp Moral and Etical behavior

We grasp trump lying to us 

We grasp the immoral support of trump by his new trump gop

We grasp that trump is devisive

We grasp that trump wants us to fear

We grasp that his supporters believe his lies

We grasp that he supports putin

We grasp that he is running our country and it’s reputation into the ground

 

We grasp what we see, read & hear

There is no confusion on our part!

Soosie says "I have reached the point that I see those who might need a new location." @mandm84........The title says, "We Have Met the Enemy and the Enemy is Us." For some reason there are those that cannot grasp who "us" is. As long as some keep the brain cog centered in one place there is no way there can be anything that is progressive. Think about this. If your car is stuck in mud and you just sit in it and think about the mud, what are your chances of getting it out and moving on? Some people see the enemy some place, perhaps in something that influenced us from the media or other means rather than seeing the enemy as the mindset we have allowed to control us. We ruin our destiny by doing this. It is WE, not him, not them......WE! US!

 

Yeah, some are indeed "stuck in the mud" and it's often Fox viewers who claim trump is an honorable man and would never cheat on his wife.  "I would never go with the Russians"....


No one has denied that the Russians have been trying to weaken us for years by dividing us against each other. That clip shows one way they have been doing it. Your posts show another way.

The problem is only one side is telling outrageous lies designed to keep their members from seeing the real problem.

"Can't deny it. President committed Treason" which side told that outrageous lie?

"Speaker Paul Ryan Calls Social Security, Welfare/Socialism" who told that outrageous lie"?

And the list goes on.

 

Only one side keeps saying its the Mexicans or the blacks or the women who forced your boss to give them your job and your payraise.

No one has said that.

Only one side says only by giving MORE money to the Uberrich will things get better.

No one has said that.

Only one side says we must work longer, pay more and receive less to fix social Security.

Only one side says global warming is a hoax and we should not try and do anything about it.

Only one side thinks its okay for their leader to commit sexual assault.

No one has said that.

Only one side thinks taxation is theft.

No one has said that. However, the use of the tax system for wealth redistribution is theft.

Only one side thinks Gerrymanders are fine and voter suppression is necessary

No one has said that.

 

 


Maybe you'd best stick to how the federal government used to pay 75% of the cost of colleges and universities. It's wrong but would save a lot of typing.
