Hard for me to understand as their hero dodged Vietnam several times when their nation called.
False narrative. He had bone spurs that kept him from being in the military and don't start with the BS that it was a fake problem by calling it "dodging". You cannot prove that it wasn't a legitimate problem so spewing the leftist, biased "opinions" means nothing!

Globalism set the ball rolling to the decaying of our inner cities where our industry died... jobs left, buildings and neighborhoods died.. poverty took over.. many decaying cities all over the country because of globalism.. using other countries resources and people to make a bigger bottom line. China has surpassed us by far with newer infrastructure.. new cities.

Couldn't agree more with this.

What a laugh!


Obama was one of the most corrupt presidents in US history. Obama brought us Comey and Lynch and created the deep state crew of treasonist federal workers who attempted a coup against Trump.


The rule of law was not applied equally during the Obama admin and "special friends" got away with murder. History, when no longer influenced by the fear of PC liberals, will judge Obama harshly, as he was an ineffective, lazy president who tolerated and fomented corruption. Just another Chicago gangster on a grander scale.


Libs hate Trump, as he is totally transparent and says exactly what is on his mind. We know he is doing the right thing, as the left hates him, and the left is always wrong. When those who hate America, love socialism, hate Jews, and love radical Islam hate Trump, we know he is doing the right thing.


As a matter of fact, I would use liberals as a perfect reverse barometer- if libs hate a politician, they are probably a good one.


Any spelling errors?

I don't know about spelling but there's certainly a gross distortion of reality here!

BTW, Trump, lying SOB that he is isn't worth the energy hate saps from the hater. If anything, I feel sorry for Trump who apparently suffers the delusion that continually and publicly tearing down others elevates himself while in reality it only displays what a pathetically needy for attention, narcissistic, spoiled little brat he is.

You want to know where our morals are? What's your reaction to this: https://www.politico.com/story/2019/...ration-1643512

Quote:
A 41-year-old Detroit man deported to Iraq in June died Tuesday, according to the American Civil Liberties Union and two people close to the man’s family.

The man, Jimmy Aldaoud, spent most of his life in the U.S., but was swept up in President Donald Trump’s intensified immigration enforcement efforts.

...the death appeared to be linked to the man’s inability to obtain insulin in Baghdad to treat his diabetes. Aldaoud was an Iraqi national, but he was born in Greece and came to the U.S. as a young child, his family friend said. He had never lived in Iraq and did not speak Arabic, according to Bajoka.

The beginning of the end of Rome actually began when Constantine made Christianity the official religion of the empire. It didn't fall because of acceptance of homosexuality like fundamentalist pastors like to say it did. Homosexuality was actually illegal in Rome during the Christian era.
