The last time CNN posted real news, there was a firing purge to make sure it never happened again.

Wait but I thought you said the liberals run all the business? What happened?


One day he's saying that liberals are all the smart people, all the biggest market movers on wall street, all the actors, all the leaders in Hollywood.

The next day he says you have to be a man in a dress or a man dressed as a vagina to be a democrat.

Long before Trump, it was already impossible to follow his rants. Sometimes they were at least creative. At this point, they're just bizarre.

Isn’t that his job?

How low are your expectations?


- Tax reform (80% of households keep more money)
- NAFTA reform (potentially over $300 billion coming back to US markets from Canada/mexico)
- Stopping Chinese theft of US IP and Manufacturing jobs
- Good bye ObamaCare
- Good bye PARIS (theft) agreement
- Record stock market gains
-Recognized Jerusalem as capital of Israel
- First US president to negotiate peace with North Korea
- 4.2% GDP (highest quarter in the past decade)
- TWO SCOTUS nominations (let's be honest, #3 is possibly coming)

He's not even two years in. He's making Obama, Bush, and Clinton look like real assholes.

Seems somebody is too busy watching CNN and fretting about the little girls armed with sticks in distraction, to be able to keep up with what our government is doing.


In April, the DEA “asserted that the United States would not be able to keep obligations under the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs if CBD were decontrolled under the CSA,” the FDA letter reveals.

This is why you're sad?

Trump is letting weed stay with the states where it should be.

Seriously, you'd prefer that the federal government legalize weed and be in charge of regulating it and have the economy in shambles, and Hillary fucking you in the ass with taxes?

It doesn’t bother you that our Veterans are left to suffer in the name of upholding treaties with foreigners? - How so?

That Americans are forced to choose between their guns or their medicine? - Again, I disagree with that question on the 4473 form but would Hillary Clinton have made that any better? I think it would be worse as it is in California with the handgun roster (hand gun ban) and the de-facto assault weapons ban. Also let's be honest, is that question really being enforced on the 4473? I think you know the TRUTH, so do I, I know lots of weed smokers.

That children are forced to suffer, and if their parents choose to heal them they do so at the risk of losing everything, and going to prison? - How so?

Trump is not leaving weed to the States. Trumps DEA is putting foreign treaties ahead of Americans well being - Uh yes he is. Are you not invested into multiple weed firms?

He intentionally picked a lifelong Prohibitionist as his AG in Sessions, to keep the War on Drugs raging - I'm not a big fan of sessions. I hope he gets sacked soon.

It’s harming American business and costing us tens of billions in wealth, as well as millions of jobs - In one industry. I think it will change slowly as it all returns to the states.

I’ve never once supported Hillary, and I don’t think she ever claimed to end Prohibition - Good. Hillary is the prototypical Democrat. Far worse than Trump.

I think you'e very biased on the whole thing based on ONE issue (weed), and I understand why. But do you think the people who are worshiping socialism and statism is the way to go here? Really? You MIGHT get less restricted weed at the price of your pocket book, and other personal rights. Plus you'd be on board with the SJW train which is actually ruining America.

Looks to me that you aren't really a Democrat but more of a Libertarian. Should look into that.

Look man. I agree with you. I don't understand the whole weed thing with ultra conservatives. I think all adults should be responsible for their own choices (weed, beer, etc).

But I think the GOP is leaning more towards liberty than the Democrats. I'm not sure how you can argue that any other way.

I voted for Ron Paul twice who was very open about weed. I also voted for Johnson.

2020 I'll probably vote for Trump. He may not be perfect, but he's better than anything we've gotten in the past 20+ years.

Yet you will chide liberals 100x and Republicans never, while they hold power and enforce Failed Prohibition. You always used to claim to stand for all the things that Republicans violate, so why are you so quick to get into bed with them, and then defend t...


I differed wrt neocon warmongering, drug and prostitution laws and the patriot act mass phone collection and subsidies. All of those differences except for the drug/prostitution laws and some subsidies are gone with Trump's reformed Republican party. That's a pretty close match. On the Dem side I may agree with 2 or 3 issues instead and fiercely disagree on the remaining majority. 80/20 rule clearly in favor of the Repubs. Plus some issues carry more weight than others. So I'm looking forward to 4 more years unless miraculously a better candidate comes forward. Trump or Rand 2020.

It keeps the Dems from legislating through the court, something they’ve done ever since FDR’s threats to the SCOTUS in the 1930’s.

Exactly. Just because they lost the SCOTUS battle doesn't mean they don't have claws. I feel sorry for what Kavanaugh had to go through, but he also had to expect it. I know I would. The left is completely depraved.

Luckily, Trump and the R's are in control of our government. The rest of our power-institutions, which the left controls, will take longer to dismantle. Good thing we elected our Trump bull in a PC china shop. No-one is better at exposing and dismantling these entrenched powers than Trump.

We MUST fix textbooks and mandate a minimum curriculum and intellectual diversity in HS and State Universities.

Must consider taking tenure boards away from Liberal Arts Departments and having a democratically elected - or appointed by Elected Officials - people pick Professors.

Wouldn't it be great if Governor Scott of Florida picked the tenure board that decided which Sociology/History/etc. Professors got Tenure at the University of Central Florida, etc.?

I'd prefer just to have federal money removed from the process, then allow the local authorities to do whatever they see fit for their children. If you dont like it, move to the next county over. Federally mandated standards mean there is no competition between localities, and no ability for a citizen to vote with their tax dollars for their preferred educational system.

Heres an example, go look at the state income tax rates in early 1900's. No state had much higher than a few % points, because the citizens would simply move to a state that is more favorable.

Within a few years of federal income tax, we had a top federal rate in the 60% range.

Get the federal govt out of education! Return power to the states and local leadership!

^^do that and the problem solves itself.

OR we can mandate "dear colleague" letter type progressive tyranny from federal regulators, absolutely decaying the value of our university system and turning it into a political propaganda machine.

Florida doesn't have an income tax. But I think we do need some state wide standards for education, at least for State Universities. We certainly need to fix Professor tenure, because it's totally broken.

Florida does have amazing Charter Schools, including some new Classical Education Schools.
