I'm no more fond of legislated "morality" from the left than I am the right. Everybody should be free to do what they want if they aren't SUBSTANTIALLY hurting others (Ie, hurting their livelihood or their freedom to go elsewhere, ect...)

Despite being pretty staunchly antireligious (keep your religious laws out of my life), I think businesses should be able to turn anybody away for any reason--the crime of not getting somebody's business should be punishment enough in itself without law enforcement piling on.

Things are stranger than they were a decade ago.

Undermining our allies. Unfortunately, I wasn’t wrong. Wielding a weaponized national debt and a disdain for our standing in the world, President Obama draws us nearer and nearer to the dystopia that I warned against in 2016.

Obama 2016, love him or hate him, you don't know him. Watch the video

Didn't know Charles manson either. Knew enough to not want to know more, unless it was more evidence at his trial, leading to a conviction.

LOL. Precisely the things we are seeing with Trump, except now it is far worse, and you love every second of it.

Yah, except it was tiny back then. He added more debt than every POTUS before him combined! Think about that.

BTW how is it that the tag on this video is from 2013? If he replaced the video as an update, shouldn't it have the upload date and not the original video date? That's very confusing.

So did Reagan and Bush. Reagan actually raised it TWICE as much as all before him combined (he tripled the debt).

If you are looking at total dollar amount, yes. If you are looking at the percentage, Roosevelt owns that one.

I didn't even notice the OP was from 2013. Since then Dinesh D'Souza has been convicted, sentenced and pardoned.

False.

In any case, the debt is out of control.
