Oh yes, I forgot he was a reality TV star in a fake program . Tv soaps that people believe are real. he's an actor , crap one at that. Burt Reynolds, Arnold swastsanin..whatever and Charlie Chaplin were much better actors. I would vote for Bruce Willis myself ,cool ,calm and able to kill everyone with a toothpick and a rubber band

I know this is the opposite view but people need the right to air their opinion without fear of others critizizng it to the point that they feel threatened. To give feedback and argue the point is acceptable but to call one names is wrong and well childish

What's a harpie ?? And why blame it on someone else why do you keep blaming Obamacare. If you love America so much why do you live in Thailand ??. Once again you have spoiled the site with your American rhetoric for the sake of the site give it a rest were not interested in Trump or American politics only you.
You can't even comprehend the information that's provided to you.

This is why I went for a long period of time ignoring you. You don't have the intellectual capacity to even understand the answers to your questions.

Take care, vladdie. Still love ya, but I'll be ignoring you.

The risk for Trump and Republicans is that the appalling "send her back" theme is a big motivator for many to vote against Trump and the Republicans. No doubt the Republican pollsters will be exploring this.

Trump is very insecure and needs to be liked. That's one reason he enjoys Putin and Jong-un's company but is uncomfortable with adult world leaders such as Merkel, May, Macron etc. I expect he will enjoy Johnson's company.

In the video (from around 16.12) Nobel Peace Prize winner Nadia Murad informs Trump twice that her mother and six brothers have been killed by ISIS and then he asks "Where are they now?"
Poor woman; she'd get more genuine attention and compassion talking to a brick wall.

"Though Trump has repeatedly claimed that the countries on which he imposes tariffs bear their costs, business experts say the reality is that the levies are paid by U.S. companies, which absorb what they can or else pass the cost onto consumers. A recent study calculated that the 25 percent tariffs imposed on China would cost the average American household more than $800 a year, according to a blog post from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

Similarly, though Trump maintains the drawn-out conflict is mostly hurting China, experts say the trade war is damaging the U.S. economy and possibly fueling a global slowdown. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome H. Powell has pointed to the head winds from the trade war as a primary reason the central bank could cut interest rates later this month. In January, the World Economic Forum predicted the trade war could reduce global GDP by 0.7 percentage points to 2.8 percent in 2019. And in a recent research note, Morgan Stanley’s chief economist warned that the trade war could spur a global recession within a year"

Now we have 2 hopefully reputaible sources the Federal Reserve Bank of New Yourk and Morgan Stanely saying teh US best watch out for Donald Ducks playing with the World Economy

.

DC District Court Judge on Friday upheld Trump's expansion of short-term health insurance, which provides Americans more affordable alternatives to the high-cost ObamaCare plans.

ObamaCare forces people to carry coverage for medical care that individual purchasers may not want. Like men being forced to pay for coverage involving pregnancies, mammograms, and other female health issues. ObamaCare didn't allow the short-term plans because they wanted to force Americans onto ObamaCare.

The states of Maryland, Delaware, California and Washington implement rules to hamstring their citizens in health care and don't allow short-term coverage for longer than 90 days. Other states do not allow these short-term plans to be renewed. These states are against free markets and hurt their citizens financially.

The short-term plans allowed by Trump cost as much as 80% LESS than ObamaCare's least expensive plan.

Trump also expanded Health Reimbursement Accounts, which help smaller businesses better afford health insurance to their employees. Estimates are that more than 11 million employees and their family members will benefit from this expansion.

Free Markets Work for MAIN STREET.

It is outstanding that the Cry Babies of Siam continue to participate in the threads they claimed to hate so much. As I stated previously on more than one occasion, I knew they'd LOVE the threads if they ever found any reason to dance and laugh about something about Trump.

They've proven that their repeated pearl-clutching outrage over Trump threads was all pure-D bullsh*t.

With all of the back and forth regarding polls and Democrats vs Trump in the presidential election, there are some very simple things being lost on all of those who hate Trump.

1. How many people who voted for Trump in 2016 will vote for a Socialist in 2020? I'm betting zero.

2. How many people today, as a result of Trump's policies, are gainfully employed, off of welfare, running a thriving business, and see real improvements in their life? I'm betting there were lots of these people who did not vote for Trump in 2016, who might vote for Trump in 2020 to continue the cuts in regulation.

3. Which Democrat running for president, who has claimed that Trump's MAGAnomics is not working, has offered any program or policy to IMPROVE the US economy or will lift ALL Americans without penalizing another group of Americans? NOT ONE. Democrats are set to penalize the makers to give to the takers.

4. When was the last time there were active movements -- publicly announced and organized -- to leave any political party? I'm referring to organizations like Walk Away, BLEXIT, JEXIT and others. Registered Democrats leaving the party. Black Americans leaving the party. Jews leaving the party. The Democrat party, in their lurch socialist has left these groups and other groups behind.

So are Americans going to vote to reverse all of the economic success and individual liberty? Do you think they want government to intercede and run their lives, make private health care illegal, raise taxes on everyone, fling the gates open on the border and allow everyone in with free health care? You better think again.

Trump may say some things that make people cry and it may hurt the feelings of some, but the ones crying are the ones who want to tear down all of the progress that has been made in the last 30 months.

1 and 2. Not surprised.

3. If those Democrat candidates for president want to be taken seriously, they better have a plan other than seizing assets of Americans and giving them to someone else. Much like you and your other CBoS members, these candidates criticize Trump and his policies, but NEVER tell us what they are FOR and what would work better. They're running for president. GET TRUMP ain't gonna get them to the White House. Americans who weren't alive during the Reagan years are seeing how free markets work. Democrats have to convince those people that they have a better idea to improve on it. So far, nothing.

Trump is 30 months into his administration. Read up, Mr. Don't know: https://710wor.iheart.com/featured/mark ... ts-so-far/

4. Those other political parties were not started as a rejection of any particular party. Green and others were started to emphasize a particular mission -- a positive mission. The examples I gave are a REJECTION of the Democrat move to the left and the fact that those groups do not feel adequately represented by Democrats. Note their names ... Walk Away and two others include the word "exit" -- the goal being to LEAVE. They represent negative feelings toward Democrats.

You're entitled to your opinion, but you're out of your depth; and your examples do not adequately address the issues that I put forward.

Certainly those other 50 parties were started due to rejection of both the Democrats and Republicans what other reason(s) would they start another Party.
The Dem/Rep had a member and he said boy I sure dont like the way this is going with our Party so I am going to start THE Black Riders Liberation Party (which is viable Party) or the Vermont Progressive Party (which 9 elected members in Vermont)
Their names can be what ever they want BUT ALL parties are started due to a dislike of the platforms of what the Democrats and the Republicans are representing

Your statement was "When was the last time there were active movements -- publicly announced and organized -- to leave any political party? "

Lip Service Did a bit more research and here ya go

1)The United Utah Party
(UUP) is a political party in the United States. It was founded in 2017 and is active only in the state of Utah. The party identifies itself as politically moderate, and was created out of frustration with the Republican and Democratic parties.

2)American Party of South Carolina.
According to Rex and Lovelace, their impetus in starting the new party was to present a centrist alternative to the Republican Party and Democratic Party that could address perceived government dysfunction.

3) Oregon Progressive Party Presidential Candidate Ralph Nader and he most certainly does not like the Dems or Rep

There are more if you are interested but this deflates your argument that NO Parties have ever been started due to rejection of the Democrats or Republicans

You have failed to see.

All of your examples are NEW political parties. New parties are started all the time. Forever in US history. They come and go like vacations every year. I never said that new political parties weren't being formed.

Walk Away, BLEXIT and JEXIT are not political parties. They are movements AWAY from the Democrat Party. None of them are forming new parties. None of them. They are either voting for Republicans or registering as Independents -- away from the Democrats.

You're trying to win an argument that I never made. Straw man.

You even quoted me -- AND STILL GOT IT WRONG. You proved that starting another political party was not my argument. Damn, man, you do this all the time. You substantiate my argument instead of prove it to be wrong. Image
"When was the last time there were active movements -- publicly announced and organized -- to leave any political party? "
I said NOTHING about starting another party. I also didn't state that it never happened before. I ASKED A QUESTION. "When was the last time ... " Image

Your statement:

You deflated yourself. Image

I NEVER said that other parties were not started. Again, for the reading impaired:
"When was the last time there were active movements -- publicly announced and organized -- to leave any political party? "

So you run along and keep listing political parties. You can win that argument with yourself because I'm certainly not making it. I never made that claim. What is happening to Democrats is entirely different.

Your emotional investment in my posts is eating you up.
