The mother reported to the police that her son purchased an AK-47 and the police said there wasn't a damn thing they could do about it because there are NO LAWS AGAINST IT.

Dementia is a standard for Repubs!
And I gather from your post that poor reading comprehension is a standard for Dems!

^^^^Dissing the victims that refused to meet Trump by saying "My how civility has changed since then". Ouch.

Many liberals, not just AOC, Tlaib, and Omar sympathize with Palestinians when they fire rockets into Israel or carry out suicide attacks?

Perhaps we should look at why people are angry about ILLEGAL immigration, about our tax money being spent on people who shouldn't be here? On jobs lost because illegals have driven down wages in so many industries? I don't think its a matter of Americans not wanting to do certain jobs but a matter of illegals having driven down the wages so low because even if they live 20 to a house its still better than in Mexico while an American can't live that kind of Third World lifestyle. Maybe we are tired of drugs and gangs coming here from Mexico.
Exactly. Always a double standard when a white person does something especially one that allegedly did something from a motive the left disagrees such as being opposed to continuous, mass illegal immigration from Latin America.

Assuming this mentally unbalanced shooter did this because of illegal immigration and wanted his nation and community to remain culturally white, then the only storyline should be "it's fine to oppose illegal immigration, but don't resort to violence, duh".

But no what did the left instead do as always? Capitalized on this tragedy to conflate wanting illegal immigration addressed with being a "white nationalist" prone to resorting to violence like this shooter allegedly.

The left's tactics and policies are probably creating more agitated white people convinced that an independent white nation is a necessity to escape the left's anti-white dystopian America than anything else is.

It is always where his head is at, instead of being human. Always discrediting others so he can feel more powerful..and he thinks this makes him look better?? He cannot get outside of himself ever, have compassion, be an adult. It will be stated by some how he "needs to do" such and such, "act maturely", "get it together", etc., when that will never happen, he is not going to miraculously turn into a better person.

The guy is emotionally ill and everyone gets to suffer through this song and dance, continually. Thankfully, those seeking to oust him are adults who will laugh off his habitual childishness, keeping their eye on the prize.

Yes, it's all an act, just going through the motions.. it means nothing to him. He is so wrapped up in his own head at all times and is unwell. He truly needs help and should never have been in this position, and as said, is wasting everyone's time and money.

So that's "some" out of eight, leaving a handful of patients who didn't want to meet with the president specifically. Let's at least paint an accurate picture of the situation.

LOL this reminds me of the time my dad called when he was on a business trip and he was SO EXCITED about meeting President Carter.

One of the two he met is two months old. It's kind of hard for a two month old to refuse. So only one adult agreed to meet Trump. Trump probably paid him or tricked him into doing it. Trump wasn't wanted there. If he had any decency, he would have stayed away.

2024 maybe. Or maybe when the left leaning media, socialists, and hollywood stop attacking him daily. For the past 3 years thats all they have done.
The right is tired of trying to be nice. We tried with Bush 1, Bush2. We tried to get Romney in, Mccain in. But no, you leftist socialists played childish insult games 24/7 and dont want to have dialogue or conversation. Its your way or the highway.
Well, that attitude gave America Trump. Not PC, and he represents the majority of the USA.. Get used to it snowflake...
