What a load of crap this "both sides are guilty" stuff is. The GOP has both houses of congress and the dips**t in the WH. He spends all frickin day on social media throwing divisive, racist red meat to his numbskull, ignorant base.

Our democracy is fading and he's laughing all the way to the bank. Meanwhile, his staffers are using private e-mail servers for government business. And the base could care less.

The gist of some of the upthread posts, that donald is shaking things up, is true

What is he shaking up? He has done nothing other than write eo's.
He has not drained the swamp, in fact, the swamp is overflowing.
btw, how are those coal mining jobs doing?

"We" are acting like a herd of cattle.

I don't expect change because

What a cop out.

You don't include yourself in 'we' and I've seen no evidence of compromise in your writings, ever.

Get off your low horse and join the rest of us, American.

President Trump notwithstanding, I encourage us all to vote for politicians who will compromise for change rather than hold out for winner takes all gains.

Specifically, I look for a track record of a given politician voting against her party, when it counts. Of course the party punishes those who don't go with the party line, by withholding campaign funds, ie they buy votes with money. It takes a principled politician to hold out against such scoundrels.

If we elect elect folks who will compromise toward legislation, and not hold out for more money, we the people will find a more truly representative government. However if we continue with staunch partisan politics and reject compromise, then those who wield the party funding mechanism can buy all the votes they want, the people be damned.

What we’ve got here is failure to communicate
Some men you just can’t reach…

I know it is a bit old and perhaps somewhat of a cliché nowadays.

But just now, listening to Guns N’ Roses “Civil War”, it sort of seems appropriate for the times, discussion and sadly, perhaps the truth.

Bearbreeder to each their own, you want to post memes that support your point of view, go ahead. But who do you think you are kidding? I have yet to see a post from you that has an open mind or is willing to come up with dialogue or facts. And if silly memes are all you have, I sort of pity you. I want no flames with you, just commenting. I am sure you will find some way to fire back. Best wishes dude/gal.

Start thinking for yourself

Republican supporters want to shop at wal mart at artificially low prices while also wanting to work at a US factory doing unskilled labor for high pay

Democrat supporters want open borders and a mass immigration of low skilled laborers while also wanting to be paid a $15 an hour minimum wage

Politicians on both sides stoke these delusional beliefs

And the people love them for it

I actually partially agree with you. Except for this: "Start thinking for yourself".

You see, the trump supporters thought they were thinking for themselves. Unfortunately they were too stupid to realize they were being lead astray.

..... Yes, we are still waiting on the Muller deal.

How is it going by the way?

It's coming along fairly quickly, especially when considering how complex the thing is. But if you only pay attention to media sources such as Fox, Breitbart and the like, you wouldn't know this.

He is expected to begin interviewing WH staff later this week, and ex-staffer Spicer has hired a criminal defense lawyer to hep him through his dealings in the investigation. The IRS is sharing information about key Trump campaign officials with him.

But I suppose it's all going to be just a huge waste of money, and they will find nothing illegal or even unethical whatsoever has occurred...... All this will just prove that The Embarrassment of the United States has simply been the target of a smear campaign by Hillary Clinton and Crew who just can't accept that she lost the election....

Bearbreeder, I cannot resist, do you really breed bears? Or just breed bare sh#t?

Fire back dude. I await an infantile meme. I am having fun, are you? The remnants of Maria (or is it Jose) are sweeping through, and to be honest it is nicer to hear the whistling in the trees and the rain pounding against the window (as the Celtic Sea is only 60 meters away) than the sound of flatulence you produce. Hah hah.

Hey, let's be lighthearted, okay. Take a go at me and I may or may not return one, it depends, I am just relaxing after a day's work. I hold no grudges against anybody, life is too short.

Edit

What about Trump taking the knee when his draft came up? And he was in a military college, for what reason? And what about all his products made abroad? And the Chinese cement he has used in his projects? If Mr Trump wants to talk about being a patriot, perhaps he should look in the mirror first.

“I’ve been so lucky in terms of that whole world,” Trump told Stern of avoiding STDs. “It is a dangerous world out there. It’s scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam era. It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave soldier.”

Wow! And some you still think he is the messiah?

EDIT I have known people who lost their lives in Vietnam and elsewhere. I have seen the grief in families. And Trump plays flippant, yet, he is serious, he seems to believe he has served his country as a bankrupt businessman who has screwed others. Go figure. It is shameful we have POTUS more concerned with sparring with celebrities, sports people, as well as politicians who do not want to follow his agenda, than he does about nukes, Puerto Rico and the average citizen.

Dwain, I have not and that is so like you. Get a grip. and bearbreeder, thank you for proving my point.

But Cosmic, you could drive me to a whiskey. Where's your car? The nearest pub is about two miles away.

Cosmic/Dwain have you ever offered any sort of decent rebuttal on your part, like some other Trump supporters have? However fallacious their's may be?

I have not seen one intelligent rebuttal from you yet, but then I may have missed it.

And Trump supporters, and indeed anti-Trump people, memes are really stupid. Just plain lazy. I do not think I have posted one unless I myself made it up as an original and then...

But aren't these memes sort of silly?

At the end of the day, how to put it with due respect to all, I am just here to see what's happening. I can still lead 5.11/E3, sketchily like, legs a shaking and watch me.

I involve myself in the politard threads because as a writer, journalist, zoologist I just.. write act I think and lay myself out there. Vlad was an abomination of my thoughts, no that is not correct. I'll put my finger on it. But this forum is my outlet.

Now Cosmic, eff off. I have not been drinking and that is a crappy excuse for your not having anything intelligent to respond to me. If you were decent, you would owe me an apology. And if I have ever offended you, ask me in same.

Do some posts wind me ups? Of course they do, I am only human.

But. it is late and I am going to hit the hay. And as a parting shot, and I can prove it (details upon request, and with all due respect to Jim in BC who thinks all of my posts are about me), I have interviewed presidents and prime ministers, and came out alive after an interview with Maggie (August 1989) as I was editor of Training Personnel (Maggie had just launched the TECs in England and Wales).

I write this because some of have called me a fake. I write this because, Donald Trump is a fake. If you support him, look at his record since his adulthood, and then tell me I am wrong.

I write this because, good gosh, TRUMP CAN SCREW US ALL. Don't you get it?

Yes I am worried, with good reason. How about you?
