I'm not a fan of Statism. I don't care for the Presidency and the power associated with it. I don't hate Trump . . . I'm indifferent to him - but I don't like the power he wields. I don't hate Obama either, but I didn't care for the power he wielded.

....sorry, old bean. I rather enjoyed the Obama years and, unlike the deranged sour-grapes/sour puss, hate-filled, spittle-splattering, snowflake, self-entitled, self-enabling loser libs, I harbor absolutely no hate what so ever against the never-did-produce-a-valid, unaltered birth certificate or college transcript, publisher-publicly stated Kenyan immigrant.


The inescapable impact of it all is the reason the orange-one was elected el heffe was-

....the eight years of 'elections have consequences, I won, I have a phone, and I have a pen' Obama.

Not only did I find the eight years quite delightful, entertaining, and enterprisingly enlightening for the electorate, I'm rather looking forward to learning  what continues to be learned historically and continues to be ignored  the mainstream  Pravda-esque self-serving press.

An administration that has no compassion and is hell bent on undoing anything Obama did, just because it is Obama even if it means going against the Republican way / business mindset.  Just look at tarriffs or for example the majority support tight environmental regulations, Democrat and Republican alike but Trump is in deep with coal and Murray so he ignores all the rest.  All politicans lie, Trump just has them daily and they are well documented.  "It's the demcrats fault kids are being separated from their parents".  To add how about having a bully as a role model.  That really helps the kids today, those being bullied and all the suicides, and supporting the bullies themselves because our president does it so it must be OK.  Trump is not a role model either party should want.  Last I checked 99.9% of us were from immigrants.  How things would be different in this country now if Trump were leading us back then when my late relatives got off the boat.

Hmmm let me get this right.... We are separating parents and children...Right? Ok just follow me here. We are doing this because ...the parents broke our laws and are being processed and the children are placed in the care of our Government. Hmmmm...now let me just go through this process but..
I am a parent (just say)... and I have 2 young children... I decide to do and sell drugs and commit a theft while under the influence ( no harm to anyone but myself?). I go to court... sentenced to saaaaay 2 years. What happens to my children? Do they go to prison with ME??? No relatives to take care of them... Sooooo...."placed in the care of our Government". This tells me we either treat OUR Citizens as good or as bad as those who broke our laws and NOT a Citizen.

Both parents knew better than to break the Law of the land and yet we are bitching about "Separating children from Parents"????

What am I missing??? Treated alike yet one is a citizen and the other...NOT....

Children of convicted criminals are not put in cages in detention centres in the US. 

If you read the article I posted on the other thread, you will learn that people have broken laws to come to the US for as long as people could get here, and esp since the establishment of the US. Which, in the history of humankind, is not that long..242 years since 1776. A pittance in the history of mankind.

( I have been alive for about 26% of US history...and I'm not ancient.)

Possibly even YOUR immigrant ancestors broke laws to get here. Possibly.

But, evil exists everywhere. I am sorry that, as a nation, we have stooped so low with regard to both immigrants and children...well, it is globally embarrassing.

This nation, particularly the Industrial Revolution, was built on the backs of immigrants, legal or otherwise, and it is tragic that we can't find a more humane solution especially for the children.

And you know, as well as I do, that SW PA, including Sharon and Pittsburgh and Johnstown and Uniontown were all built on the backs of European immigrants in the coal, steel and coke industries.

Your ancestors as well as mine.

I think the Immigration Act of 1924 stopped the Willy Nilly access through our borders and actually set up... Yup... QUOTAS from specific countries. And yes... Western PA was built by Immigrants that worked Railroad, Mining and Steel. The industry needed people with the want to work hard and build families... My Father put 44 years in Shenango Penn Mold... An immigrant Greek who was able to work and care for a family, buy a home and sent my sister to college... He couldn't do that on a job in Greece and fishing paid squat. Some actually came legally to have a better life and NOT expect to live on the handouts our country gives so freely now.... For the most part... the Industrial revolution was built on the backs of all immigrants but... almost entirely VOLUNTEERING to do that work to make life better for their family. And that was when FAMILY was CENTER in their lives. My Father NEVER regretted sweating in the Iron Foundries as long as his family was taken care of...BY HIM... a proud man.  So many will think I am "BLUSTERING" but I write what I do know... call it what you want.

Well, both of you are males, Caucasian,and presumably privileged.  Which I’m told makes you racist,[insert vernacular here]-phobic, and generally responsible for everything bad in the world. Oh I forgot...you are probably sexual predators. 

You seem to enjoy your life despite all of these moral failures and this makes you especially deserving of loathing from the enlightened. 

The ideology of the enlightened requires you repent but this is not enough, you must self loathe,deny yourself, and preach the approved gospel to be worthy. But you will never be worthy, you are bad to the core.   This gospel is presented as  parallel to another gospel but upon closer scrutiny bears no resemblance to the original as constituted.

In a nutshell you are either going to hell or your going to be run there on a rail by the “good people “because you have no idea how terrible you are. 

Does this seem about right? 😦

Let's see...it's well documented.. if someone posts an opinion, they are criticized by Gore.


If some posts an interesting article, they and their article are criticized by Gore.

If someone has a moral or theological basis for a viewpoint....


If they have no moral or theological basis for their view...


And on and on it continues... well documented.


Now I am using the word, criticized, but I am also referring to being laughed at, being mocked and generally berated for replying, participating, for existing, for thinking, for being. For trying and succeeding. For trying and failing.

Well documented responses to posts for over a decade. Hmmm..

Many lurk here, true, but don't participate, like it was years ago. Hmmmm....

A trend? Hmmm...

This forum is down to a handful of people who participate, from what it was, and from what Hey Martha was, years ago. That's sad, and the forum not much fun.

Having our human failings and inconsistencies constantly pointed out and thrown in back in our faces is very dysfunctional behavior, as I learned recently from a psychologist friend, whom, yes, I asked about such behavior.

Bringing up a post from 2016? Geez. You need to hike a 14-teener, Gore. Or go for a bike ride. Or talk to a stranger while eating your soup. Or donate soup to a food pantry.

Humans and human thought, even King Cheeto, are fluid. We ARE NOT consistent beings - we change with time, with needs, our adaptability, our brilliance and our stupidity, is what make us human.

So, dear, feel free to have at it. Laugh at me. Mock me. It's all well documented already but you're welcome to put more of your time into doing so.

I was not thrilled with Obama, but I'm not terribly happy with Trump either. Economically I don't think he understands how his short term goals are going to fall apart since China plays the "long game." He's trying to make gains short term, ie. what's going to hold up until the next election. China's plans are for 10 years out and further. Obama did the same thing, but not to this degree. Obama's foreign policy was nothing more than a continuation of what GWB started. Trump has a hard tome throttling his tongue. And while it may be colorful and some people think it's great, it's not what we need in a diplomat. There's a deluge of crap every POTUS does and it all comes down to whether or not you voted for them if you like it or not.

People listen to the pundits for their part and they spin things every which way and never give you the complete story. They deliver it on a platter so people get outraged at the person they didn't vote for. Limbaugh, Maddow, Colbert and so on aren't anything more than rambling ass-hats trying to make a buck... on us. The truth does not sell. In fact Mark Twain said it best... "Never let the truth get in the way of a good story"

.... the completely fascinating aspect to honest students of history is that that the ‘yes we can’ Obama years represent the epitome of disingenuous hyperbole hypocrisy, with the classic example being-

.... if you d merely disagreed with Obama you were immediately branded a bigoted racist, in a basket of deplorable red necks embracing your guns and God, a rhetoric and self-entitled and self-serving mentality which clearly became self destructive during the 2016 election, and has only continued to explode today to historically unseen provoking levels today, and now even more so in the face of the upcoming, and  rapidly diminishing, blue wave in the up coming anti-Trump- mid-term elections.....

The legacy of the eight years of the Obama administrations has become today if you don’t voraciously hate Trump, you are immediately branded and castigated as a racist, fascist, Nazi, sexist, misogynist, homophobe, pedophile hater-of-a-human being and are being publicly harassed and assaulted by what is rather no so ironically called is a factually play on words of a now famous term –

.....”the hate-est  generation

If you don’t proactively agree to and  fanatically toe the liebertard party-line and their hypocritical Orwellian lies, your now are worthy of, and in fact, being scorned and public attacke and physically assaulted.

“You will be made to care”.  Someone once told me this was the future.  You will no longer be permitted to have your own worldview. You must submit or you will loose your job, not eat in restaurants, be publicly shunned and maybe even shot while playing baseball with republicans.  😳

Reminds me of the “feminist manifesto” that encourages women force the men in women’s  lives to toe the line. Women who preach to men how they have to be treated apparently surround themselves with pretty weak and valor-less men. It also reminds me of women who force men to marry them via ultimatum. ...  Lol if you have to force a man to make a marriage commitment then you probably should consider choosing someone else.    I can’t imagine living a life that is so filled with contemp and bitterness towards the very human beings you seek to love.  It’s foreign to me.

Nice to see the servicemen return home, Obama hit 5.2% growth rate, we will see if Trump beats that.  Perhaps you are not aware but an estimated 2% of that, nearly half, was due to the push to export soybeans and the like before the tariffs kick in.  Soybean exports alone increased 9400%.......Should be interesting when that pulls back the next couple quarters, next quarter being right before the mid terms.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2018/07/26/us-growth-likely-hit-percent-this-spring-experts-say-its-blip/?utm_term=.a5031fe86792 (https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2018/07/26/us-growth-likely-hit-percent-this-spring-experts-say-its-blip/?utm_term=.a5031fe86792)
Economists say the spike is coming mainly from a  fluke: There was an unusually large increase in exports in the spring  that probably came because other countries were trying to buy U.S. goods  before Trump’s trade war escalated and tariffs kicked in. Soybeans  exports, for example, surged 9,400 percent in the period from March to  May over the prior year, Morgan Stanley said. China, a major buyer of  U.S. soybeans, put hefty tariffs on the American crop this month in  retaliation for Trump’s levies on numerous Chinese products.
This  is “likely a reflection of stockpiling ahead of the implementation of  trade tariffs,” Morgan Stanley economists wrote in a note to clients  this week, and they warned that it’s likely that growth will revert to a  much lower level in the second half of the year as foreign countries  slow their purchases of U.S. goods.
Ok... let's beat on Donald.... 4.1? ???  55 Servicemen remains returned from No Ko.... DAMN Him!!!

" Nice to see the servicemen return home.."  WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT?!!!! That is all you have to say about this???? 7600 missing from a WAR fought almost 70 years ago... possibly 2300 of them ended up in China... Approx. 83,000 have gone missing since WWII. You are more worried about the GDP than HUMANS being returned... to give families closure. NO OTHER POTUS EVER was able to do this ..NONE! All we got is a trickle. Now maybe more families will get answers...
Why am I so involved?? You ask.?? I wore my first POW-MIA Bracelet upon RETURNING to my Unit in Vietnam... 1970. I still wear it..and the man on the bracelet is still missing. I have been involved in this issue 48 years. I sit on the National POW-MIA Committee of one of our nation's largest Veterans Organizations. I meet with the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) at least once a year..(met with them about 2 weeks ago in Reno). I was privy of these returnees at that time, before the NEWS. You glanced over that like looking through the Society Page... You are one to grasp at anything to step on ANYTHING that Trump does, to satisfy yourself. I think GORE has given you enough info to re-look at that 5.2. Maybe that is a debatable "fact" but 83,000 is not so "debatable". I now wonder how you would have remarked had maybe one of those remains were to be one of YOUR family. No wonder we seem so "TRIBE'd UP". Enjoy your day... Hoping the best for 50-55 of our Service People's families... for a start. " Nice to see the servicemen return home..." :huh: .....Maybe the hairdo and small hands make for a better conversation. :-[ ..
Nice to see the servicemen return home, Obama hit 5.2% growth rate, we will see if Trump beats that.  Perhaps you are not aware but an estimated 2% of that, nearly half, was due to the push to export soybeans and the like before the tariffs kick in.  Soybean exports alone increased 9400%.......Should be interesting when that pulls back the next couple quarters, next quarter being right before the mid terms.

Economists say the spike is coming mainly from a  fluke: There was an unusually large increase in exports in the spring  that probably came because other countries were trying to buy U.S. goods  before Trump’s trade war escalated and tariffs kicked in. Soybeans  exports, for example, surged 9,400 percent in the period from March to  May over the prior year, Morgan Stanley said. China, a major buyer of  U.S. soybeans, put hefty tariffs on the American crop this month in  retaliation for Trump’s levies on numerous Chinese products.
This  is “likely a reflection of stockpiling ahead of the implementation of  trade tariffs,” Morgan Stanley economists wrote in a note to clients  this week, and they warned that it’s likely that growth will revert to a  much lower level in the second half of the year as foreign countries  slow their purchases of U.S. goods.
Ok... let's beat on Donald.... 4.1? ???  55 Servicemen remains returned from No Ko.... DAMN Him!!!

Identity politics are political positions based on the interests and perspectives of social groups with which people identify. It's not just the 'left' . . . .

It's interesting that we have a "real world" example of change in what happened to the Soviet Union. It wasn't catastrophic, and (most) folks seemed the happier for it. Ironically - some folks I talked to there recognized that while the 'form' of government changed - the players remained largely the same. Obama didn't accomplish change because it's not about the Presidency. It's about the bureaucracy.

I'll give Trump some credit - he's calling out the bureaucracy and folks don't like it. He's not exactly draining the swamp - but he's put up some klieg lights surrounding it - and what some folks consider to be hallowed institutions are  revealed to be quite something else.

....thanx for asking.The factual reality is the GUARDIAN  is a UK daily paper with a documented biased moderate leftist political perspective........and NEWSWEEK, while once an informative slightly left leaning hard copy weekly news magazine, has recently gone over the extreme-leftist hate-Trump propaganda ]fake-news falls........a balanced perspective is presented by the standard bearer of the US anti-conservative petard waving “All the news that’s fit to printand now anti-white racist promoting “Gray Ladyof 8th   Avenue -
