Funny thing is y'all don't want fetuses to be aborted but then would rather pay for the bombs to drop on babies In other countries than to pay for the needs of unwanted children in this country.

Those are separate concerns you are conflating and surely you can't make that argument anymore since Trump who has been more isolationist than lamestream Dems and Reps neocons.

Haha! Look at their great soyboy and soygrrl vocabulary - consists of maybe a handful of words, clearly shows inferior intelligence. I would have loved for that ICE woman unload a clean headlock on one of the soy lunatics. Ironically - again - people like ICE and the military guarantee the soybeans free speech. In any of their utopia leftoid government one word against the great leader would cause them to get executed with their backs to the wall.

I'm for the legalization of all drugs on a federal level for adults but for consequent harsh punishment if you break the law on drugs (same as if you weren't) or offer it to minors or in general people who haven't asked for it. I would allow states/municipalities to criminalize it though, should their voters/government decide to do so. I'd assume that considering data at hand addiction will not rise significantly if at all, it may bump in the beginning and then level off or even decrease and we would end most drug-related crimes by offering regulated cheap substances. This is different from a moral go-ahead of course or a declaration of drug use being a human right (although one could make a case for it), but what we had so far failed miserably and it is a practical libertarian approach.

Agreed. How is it possible that the left, once organizing concerts with the likes of Sting aka "the russians love their children too" pretty much protesting any hard stance against Russia by thew Republicans is now foaming out of their mouth in a POST-COLD-WAR era where the biggest problem between those two countries is a small and economically and militarily insignificant eastern European area and a few hackers? Trump needs to declare he loves Oxygen so the leftoids go and choke themselves out.

Amazing how Bush, Kristol, etc. all became Left Wing heroes.

And Ron and Rand Paul are absolutely being vilified right now. They always had their principled Libertarian stance on foreign relations but now there is an opening to do them in. It's like bizarro-world, remember the left shitting and pissing their pants about "warmonger" Trump and the nuclear button, now they are banging the drums of war over a few hackers.

And Islam.

Yeah sort of overlaps with the rapefugees. But it's a well learned lesson on manipulating the masses, they played their hand well with their frenzy over a few hackers detailing how Hillary fucked over Bernie, that's really all that it is. But they cleverly turned it into a question of patriotism which it really has nothing to do with. I think they are assholes but they played that hand better than Trump IMO. However my observation is that the left is so batshit crazy that they will likely continue with their rabid hyperbole and in a few days to weeks we're back to "normal". Also we know Teflon Don has eventually successfully repelled any incident throughout the election and his presidency thus far. We'll see.

Trump did not start the failed war on drugs. Unfortunately he probably wont stop it. A self proclaimed teetotaler Trump is heavily addicted to caffeine in the form of diet coke.

Trump already signaledhe will not stand in the way and treat it as a states rights issue which it should be - if communities can completely outlaw smoking tobacco they should be able to outlaw weed (or everything should be legal and communities and states have no rights to overturn). It's up to congress to pass legislation, Trump will sign it.

The problem is that this has become an extortion business for any "protected minority" do jour, be it muslim, black, lgbtqq=xyzawesome or even women. It's not different than those lawyer skanks leeching around in supermarkets, restaurants and where not just trying to find any ADA violations they can sue the business owners for. People get fired, careers and business destroyed over that shit. If there is a legitimate grievance there should be some small claims court equivalent, fast decision with a cap on fines (like a parking ticket) for adjucating those cases but nobody should lose their job or business over shit like that.

There's a reason the saying is true.... "Ignorance is bliss!"

Yet polls show that Conservatives are typically better informed on the issues than Liberals.

Conservatives are marinated in Liberal group\-think our whole lives through non-stop programming by our media, Hollywood and academia. So we grow up knowing both sides of the issues and have to have tougher skin to stand up for our views.

Liberals can go their whole lives and insulate themselves from Conservative points of view. Especially when they reach college and their formative years. When Liberals occasionally stumble upon ...

Yeah it has nothing to do with ignorance or intelligence. There are believers and non-believers across the full spectrum and likely fairly evenly distributed. I do think it is deliberate propaganda by lamestream media and elites that eventually causes people to groupthink and be mad at all the rays cysts who don't think like them. Divide and conquer.

The problem mainly you only have 2 choices... What options does a fiscally conservative and socially liberal atheist have in the current environment? Trump is treating the presidency like a reality tv show.

You can support the Trump policies and presidency without being a fan. In the end policies, concrete actions matter, not feelz or how you mince words. I consider myself fiscally conservative and socially liberal as well (despite being Catholic). But I see no policies/laws enacted/signed by Trump that have harmed minorities or changed basic daily life. I supported Rand Paul but it was clear soon he isn't going to win. I'm not always with Trump and his deliveries but we dodged a major bullet by defeating Hillary and that deserves credit.

well placed and unnamed source aka FAKE NEWS?

This is a testimony, very different from an unnamed source. Why would she be lying about it, there's no upside only downside for her. The whole thing confirms that women are better at being in it for themselves - it's smart on her side to cooperate here. Strzok got cucked, rightfully so. This is getting better by the day, let's see if this crucial detail makes it into the lamestream media.

Page is testifying that it was the Chinese. Sure she has it from their sources but she is the one testifying. That is different from any blogger or newspaper who can make up whatever they want based on "unnamed sources" without any consequences for them, it will have consequences for her if she is caught lying. Could she be lying? Sure. Not likely though. You'd have to force the FBI to reveal their source(s) to get full confirmation, good luck with that. Esp. since they don't want all their anti-Trump operations to come out. And no matter whether you believe it's fake news or not, just for balance the lamestream media should report on it as they do routinely with all their anti-Trump "unnamed sources". They don't have to say it's the truth, just reporting on it would be a big fist step in the right direction from losing the fake news status though.

Its like every time we talk about using our democracy to benefit the masses you and your pals switch the subject to socialism and how that is a bad thing.

The funny thing is that Hugo Chavez' big mistake was failing to permit the continued exploitation of his nation’s oil wealth on terms dictated by international oil companies, no one would have the least concern for any “tyranny” found within his borders.

Obviously wealth evolved beyond nation states now into one international corporate elite, who uses American military might to enforce their rule globally. The boom in military budget simultaneous with the loss of taxes will bring about the desired end of ALL programs like social security and medicare.

BTW the basic deal between elites and certain preferred elements of...

Disagree on a few points but interesting thoughts. So 1) what do you propose as a better alternative to capitalism (there's none so far) and aren't you then delighted by Trumps policies which embody traditional leftist protectionism as well?

a better alternative to capitalism

Is there an "ism" word for taking what we got and focusing it on the population instead of neocons who want to use our military to bring the world to its knees?

What kind of "ism" is that?

So far we don't seem to be able to stop the military build up simultaneous with the loss of tax revenues and the loss of our jobs, and jobs are the wealth that we create. If we can't regulate the neocons from gutting our country of all its wealth then we don't have much of country left already.

This recent tax break set us up to fall into corporate globalism as a bankrupt warlord nation.

You are going to be surprised how fast life is going to change into a new corporate feudalism if we keep going like this. Plenty of people feel the change already with the loss of retirement, the forced migration for short lived jobs, loss of homes, loss of he...

Prophecies like these have been made time and time before. At the end of the day you can look at all countries and see where life is worth living, and it's going to be 99% capitalist countries. Doesn't mean they have the best model. But they do so far. I so share some of your observations, the economy has changed quite a bit into a service-driven model where jobs are often temporary and people naturally now have to have 2nd jobs or other means of making money. I don't see how this is connected though to specific political influence, it's simply capitalism constantly evolving. We're certainly moving away from a warlord nation under Trump, so that's a good thing - if the left would stop complaining. I assert that if Trump wouldn't have so much resistance in the neocon / deep state / left space he would have been much much more isolationist and would have taken the US out of many more useless wars.

his complete immorality on matter of sexual conduct

He brought 5 children into the world in marriages that were/are far stabler than the average marriage today, provided for them financially and gave them - as well as his spouses - a good life. They (except for the youngest) are all successful an have their own careers now, haven't been in conflict with the law and have their own families. Far from being a saint, yet there's a million times more morality displayed than by the abortion-praising, men and nuclear family-hating, and murderous-criminals glorifying soy-laden pussyhatters.

Heraclitusstudent says
his total disdain for allies and adulation of despots, and enemies of the countries

This was never a problem when leftists visited countries where women, gays et al. are routinely stoned. It's called diplomacy and Trump at least achieves real change for the better in those countries.

Obama didn't brag about grabbing pussies

Every man does at some point in his life. Those who claim otherwise are most likely lying, going by Occam's razor. Most women brag at some point about wild romps with their lovers (or exes), penis size and girth and how they took charge (or were taken wildly when submissive).

Ah, I see. Another propaganda article: 'It was Democrats fault when/if families were "broken up" by politics'. What nonsense.

Seriously, is there nothing better to do than to post and celebrate these feel-good Republican/Trumpist propaganda articles?

I know about many family splits where the left side quit relations with the right, I don't know about a single case on the opposite. We had Republican and Democratic presidents forever and families did not split up over this. Clearly the hyperbole that you cannot live in peace with a family member, friend, colleague etc. of the opposite political tribe is currently coming from the left.

But of course, all the holier-than-thou blessed-asses evangelicals are perfectly happy to look the other way.

There are many religious conservatives who have criticized or even denounced Trump over this. I don't think many that take religious sexual morals very seriously are looking the other way. It's just that Trump has a lot of support from other groups as well, he isn't the perfect candidate for the religious right for sure. But he's got something for everyone.

By this metric, I have balls the size of the Liberty Bell because I was a Goth Kid wearing Mascara in 1991.

I listened to a lot of so-called goth music but never went for the fad and the looks. However on a few occasions - just because the girls thought it would be funny - they put white powder and a bit of mascara and dark lipstick on me. I remember coming back from a concert being accosted by a more islamic turk (some are very secular) for being a faggot and I told him just to mess with him better being a faggot than a stinking half-legal immigrant turk - he was steaming but we were all 6 ft 3 and up strong industrial/goth types so he just continued with verbal diarrhea since he was too afraid to attack. I have made fun of my own partial mediterranean (immigrant) roots with same rooted foreigners (back then the left wasn't quite as rabid) who then wanted to start a fight with me, the rayscyst (while my friends chuckled) because I talked shit about their rays! Good times. I miss those times where shit like this wasn't politicized at every angle and corner and it was just good fun and a few brawls.

Also the recent Schnatter case shows the whole craziness of PC politics. The Papa John's founder was - during his own mandated diversity training - asked to come up with examples of bad treatment and racism in the past and he detailed something along the lines that "blacks were dragged from trucks until they died" - and he got in trouble and had to resign for telling a truth. Guess instead of reporting the real cruelties during slavery this was way to traumatizing to confront people with (the truth) and he should have come up with an example of a modern micro-aggression instead. And he's gone.

Everyone with two functioning brain cells understands that the mainstream media is utterly owned and controlled by six billionaires who are pro-globalism, pro-New World Order, pro-mass immigration, anti-worker, pro-debt, and pro-military industrial complex. They use social issues du jour and racial issues as a way of muddying the waters and dividing people into camps. Before Trump, those camps were divided down red and blue lines, but the party leadership of BOTH sides was following the script and the agenda set down by these billionaires.

Exactly, except instead of discussing globalism, immigration, anti labor policies, debt and crony capitalism, people are now screaming about pussy grabbers, Stormy Daniels, shitty nations, kids separated from their mothers, immigrants are rapists, etc, etc... Everything fell down to Trump's level.

There is no nuanced debate of complex id...

Sure, DT's politics are controversial and there seem to be points of gripe for many, but the unhinged, undemocratic, and fascist behavior is coming from the left. That is what the original article claims and the author is spot on here. I don't think the OP claimed that DT is always right or never lies or embellishes etc.

This is definitely an opportunistic flip-flop. He used to criticize the Feds ZIRP - to be fair a bit different than 1%-2% but still - but now that he is in power he doesn't want higher rates so that his economic numbers - which are by almost every measure fantastic nonetheless - stay where they are and don't decline. Don't think it's a big deal, the market barely reacted, neither did the Fed. Keeping his hate relationship with the Fed, could be worse. But def a flip.

There is no need for the Fed to raise interest rates.

The purpose of raising rates was to combat inflation. Paul Volker raised rates when inflation was over 10%.

I hope they don't raise rates either.

Well there is inflation in local goods and services that cannot be imported, just look at housing or healthcare. Overall it is not super high, but prices in general have been rising a bit faster lately. I think the Fed shouldn't exist at all and let the market set the rates.
