Lol.... I want to see the look on peoples faces when he gets reelected in 2020. Seems like the dems are just digging the hole deeper. Please explain to me how he is blocking entry into the nation based on religion...lol. There are at least 50 Muslim Nations on Planet Earth and 43 can come and go as they please. Seven were stopped. Is that possibly because in the other 43 nation a national agency can pick up the phone and contact a national law enforcement agency to vet them?
My favorite moment was when the New person in charge of the Dem Party went on twitter to announce that the Dems were back and some of the replies were they were tired of the crap and saying goodbye to the Dem party...lol
It's that 36D chess Trump is playing. He has a plan for us all. Just you wait. He's going to blow Pizza Gate wide open, ban vaccines and therefore eradicate autism, defeat ISIS in 30 days (HE"LL START WHEN HE"S GOOD AND READY), make China admit to their invention of the climate change hoax, and expose the Lizard Illuminati. You're welcome, libcucks.
I wonder when libtards are going to come up with an actual plan to put a valid candidate into office instead of whining that they lost the election. All that college education hasn't helped them win many spots in US government these days.
The fact that THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA has had so many allegations of sexual misconduct made against him that it warrants an entire Wikipedia article is equally hilarious & disturbing...
My thought process: Oh the only candidate that the Democrats could find in hopes to beat a reality show TV celebrity failed miserably. Maybe this is just the wakeup call they need to get their shit in order and platform on relevant topics.
Clinton was the worst person they could have chosen. One can only hope they get their shit together. It's not healthy to let an extreme portion of one party make all of the decisions without any checks and balances. Most of the topics being discussed across the country are quite relevant, though. Our President is blocking entry for those fleeing terrorism, wanting to block entry based on religion, selecting a supreme court justice based solely on whether they think abortion should be illegal, building another wall (segments where possible) and making us pay for it, not understanding that a tariff on Mexican products mean US taxpayers would be paying for his wall twice, insulting other heads of state via Twitter, insulting anyone he doesn't agree with on Twitter, picking many cabinet members who are unqualified or have ties to extreme conspiracy or white nationalist organizations (Rick Perry had no idea his job involved the nuclear program.), believing climate change is a conspiracy, buying into the anti-vaccine autism bullshit, having many conflicts of interest around the world, ruling on the DAPL which he has financial investment in, being able to pick and choose which news organizations are legit based on who writes good things about him. The guy is incredibly ignorant and behaves like an eighth grader. He can't talk to anyone without reminding them how many people like him, and how it's not fair that everyone criticizes him. He can't help but lie every other sentence. He throws tantrums whenever he doesn't get his way. After stating he knows way more than any of our intelligence agencies, he met with the CIA, and told them maybe we'll have another opportunity to invade Iraq and finally take their oil, then reminded them how bad the media is. I could go on, but surely you can understand the outrage?
"maybe we'll have another opportunity to invade Iraq and finally take their oil, then reminded them how bad the media is."
I hope it's thinly veiled sarcasm. At least, that's the way it comes across to me. I'm sure you're aware that that line/accusation ("we're there for the oil") didn't originate from Trump. Likely, he's taking their own words, what many commentators in the media said (years ago) and mocking how it turned out to be false (thereby, demonstrating "how bad the media is").
The Iraq war was a mistake for other reasons and the mission was not accomplished. But still, we can learn from history and the false narratives being spread by media... recall the conspiracies saying that Bush was behind 9/11, that he was the master-mind who orchestrated the whole event to fabricate justification for the wars. Fast forward to today and we're being served up another outlandish conspiracy, this time saying that Trump was working with the Russians to change the outcome of the elections. Sure sounds like a conspiracy. But I'll wait for the evidence before jumping to conclusions.
"It's not healthy to let an extreme portion of one party make all of the decisions without any checks and balances."
"extreme portion" Please elaborate. Are you saying all 'pubs currently in office are extreme right-wing nutjobs?
Checks & balances (division of govt) is still there (3 main branches are there), even if to lesser degree when 1 party controls all branches... the founding fathers didn't set up any structure to prevent 1 party from winning all branches.
Regardless, not sure if you have a point here, because Trump and the Republicans in Congress are always bickering with each other. Trump isn't getting his every wish and hasn't been able to change much. You're talking about things he'd like to do, but how much can he really change when even a Republican Congress doesn't support him and the courts declare his bans & such unconstitutional? He might be a successful businessman. But so far, he's been ineffective as a politician.
"wanting to block entry based on religion"
Source? Sounds like leftist propaganda. How many countries did he propose to restrict immigration for? 6 is what I've seen. If blocking entry were based on religion, there would be more than 6 countries to restrict. There are many more than 6 countries with a majority population of Muslims, are there not?
"a tariff on Mexican products"
A tariff is tax on the exporter. I get what you're saying (that prices would rise, so it'd be like a tax). But no, it's not the same as a tax on citizens. Tariffs make it less attractive to manufacture sh!t elsewhere. The goal behind it is fewer companies closing shop in the U.S. and moving to Mexico.
Besides, free trade (as it's currently practiced) is over-rated. I've been saying for years that "free trade" isn't really free. Overall, the U.S. doesn't benefit from it. Mainly, the 1% benefit. Have you seen our trade deficit? For a while, it's been over $120 billion every quarter. The rate that our economy is bleeding cash through trade is insane and corrections need to happen (if we don't make some changes, economies will eventually correct themselves, in the form of a huge crash).
Cheap prices is what we're sold on. But in reality, the primary beneficiary of "free trade" is Wal-Mart and corporate America. They're making billions in profit through abusive labor practices. By setting up factories in other countries, they get out of paying minimum wage and skirt basic worker rights. If we really want to level the playing field and be fair about free trade, then we should create laws saying that other nations can only be granted most-favored trading status (immune to tariffs and restrictions) by adopting our laws (minimum wage and workers rights) in their own countries.
So you're fine with Obamacare and don't think that healthcare needs to rebuilt from the ground up?
Costs continue to skyrocket from what i've seen. My premiums rose by over 30% each year the last 2 years.
It's basically a law forcing people to buy insurance, further solidifying the for profit system. Ironically, Obamacare was modeled after conservative Mitt Romney's health care plan in Massachusetts. The whole plan was a joke (especially on Democrat voters, who got the proverbial wool pulled over their eyes...).
On healthcare, I tend to agree that many of the European countries have a better system.
For most sectors of the economy, free markets are great. But when I think of healthcare in the U.S., I can't help but think of a term i was taught Econ 101 - "inelastic demand" - which more or less means that demand doesn't change with changing supply (or price). It's a relevant term here, because healthcare is a service that ppl require, and literally can't live without. Demand is inflexible for healthcare and the principle of inelastic demand takes hold. Healthcare providers can charge whatever the hell they want and ppl will pay. The usual concept in economics, that changes in free market demand affecting price doesn't apply to our current system of healthcare... because demand doesn't go down (only up, as the population increases and gets older, average). Invariably, prices will continue to rise at seemingly obscene rates under such a system.
The piece of shit has less supporters then he thinks.
Not a huge fan of Trump, but the idea that he's a fascist or the next Hitler is obvious leftist propaganda/lies.
If Hillary were elected instead of Trump, it would've been 100x more likely that we'd be in another war. She has a background as a hawkish politician. Trump has a background as a businessman. He would consider the cost/benefit of going to war... and it's typically not good, so he's more likely to avoid a costly war, imho.
Svperstar: I ordered pizza last week and it got here in like 25 minutes, later I got an email that said "Sorry you pizza was so late here is a code for a free pizza on us". Score.

sj: Sorry for your loss. There is no why, dude. Tragic things happen to everybody sooner or later, and often (if not, typically) without reason.

sj: Jordan Peterson offers some of pretty good insight on these sort of issues (he has vids on YT), imo. I think a message he often conveys is that life is full of hardship & tragedy, and it's up to individuals to create meaning in their own lives.
