Yes, among others. We need stable, intelligent people in the government. People with critical thinking skills, not a person that speaks badly of anyone that does not agree with his constant dribble of nonsense.

holy sheet. Americans should be ashamed.

Be careful of the words you use in front of impressionable american minds. Too many dumbazzes here will easily start a race war.
Aren't you ashamed of the way the liberal overlords have turned CA into a dump of human waste, needles, and trash in the streets?

Why hasn't the homeless crisis been called a crisis? Several of Los Anelglesboard of supervisors have been trying to call it just that for years and the liberals won't have anything to do with it. ON top of that Typhus is back after 120 years and the entire state has a rat infestation. Why isn't that being addressed?


Newsome is more interested in supporting illegal immigrants than helping our citizens in tent cities.






Anyone living in CA and paying those insane taxes should be ashamed of the political crap hacks they voted in.

You can't name anything factual, and back it up with statistics, to prove Trump has hurt the nation. All you can come up with is opinion based insults. It has been well over two years, and we are still here despite all the fear mongering over what Trump is supposedly going to do. The current democrat offerings will certainly destroy us with crazy plans like the green new deal, student debt forgiveness and medicare for all.

Like it or not, Trump is the safest bet in 2020. We simply can not afford the crazy policies the left wants to put in place.
That the country is better off now is your opinion. Trump has cut EPA regulations and endangered our wildlife and our environment. That's one thing he's done. He's destabilizing our economy for his own personal gain, trying to bully the Fed to lower interest rates by playing Russian roulette with this trade war. He's ballooned our debt and deficit. Immigration is even more of a mess than it has been. He has gotten nothing done on the drug prices or infrastructure or healthcare like promised. I know he's convinced so many that he's doing all of these positive things, but when you look at it, he's not. When he's not golfing every other weekend, he's on Twitter 24/7. He has no idea how government or diplomacy works. NK is still launching missiles. Nope, really can't think of one instance where we are better off with him. The majority of Americans agree with me.

It is absurd in the year 2019. Land purchases such as those you referenced are all things of the past. Land masses are no longer bought and sold.

Invoking the 25th will never happen, but it's the one thing that could save us from economic collapse.

Yeah, land masses are still being bought. Last one for the US was the Virgin Islands I believe but this is still going on by other countries. Back in 2012, in what some considered highly controversial Japan bought the Senkaku Islands (sp?).

But I decided to google this and it wasn't hard to find this article in the Washington Post from 2015 discussing land purchases by other countries. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...?noredirect=on

So yeah, you're wrong. This is still going on - you just didn't know that.

I am trying to be non partisan here (although most liberals will not believe it). Trump has not done anything that would warrant a 25th amendment solution. He has done lots of things that people disagree with (so did the previous president) , he says or tweets some things I definitely wish he didn't, he speaks in ways many would think are not becoming of a president (lots of people like that very thing about him).
But nothing he has done should lead an unbiased person to feel he is unfit or unable to serve. Not liking what he does isn't enough. Elections are for that (vote him out).

I feel if Joe Biden is elected the 25th amendment could become a real possibility. He appears to be slowly approaching a state of senility. Maybe a year or two , maybe longer, maybe not at all but I can't watch him and not wonder about his current and future mental acuity.

Senkaku Islands are a total of five uninhabited tiny islands and three rocks that make up a mere 7 square kilometres (1,700 acres). Their ownership had been disputed for some time as several countries had claims. Big difference from something such as Greenland.

Just admit that you had no idea what you were talking about when you first posted, it'll be easier for everyone once you accept that you were wrong.
