Re: Now Trump Wants To Appeal to 'The Blacks'

I guess he didn't have "to appeal". The alternative was so "unappealing".

Re: What Have We Wrought?

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C3Dh-PuUMAI9NJw.jpg A nice example of being out of touch. The NPS, for the last 16 years has proactively shut down access.

Re: The Battle Flag: Time for the Museum...

I felt it unfortunate that the murder of 9 wonderful people became overshadowed. Overshadowed by a need of others to attack symbolism instead of substance. The result of which is to re-entrench and demean a lot of idiots who simply like the Rebel flag. I'm sure it feels good to protest and then make...

Re: I don't understand

You are right. Not really different. We force our business interest on the whole world. Either peacefully through the World Bank or forcefully through the military.

Thanks, Obama! OK, I'm kidding. But open racism really HAS increased exponentially since we elected him. A guy in my wife's insurance office in '12 was talking about the Tea Turds, and he said, "And if that makes me a racist, so be it." I don't think it was considered OK to tell people in...

I'd argue that the revolution has already begun. He wants to increase the pay of the bottom dwellers. What about the middle class as they hang on to their share?

Who are we to judge? Oh wait..... I will! We live our middle class lives frugally. So do many poor people. We start to judge when excessive behavior becomes acceptable. When consumerism is winked at.

They can hang up their closet soccer fetish. True that. I believe a lot of the "fetish" is the desire to make a buck off of something. The hype is fed to the masses and they consume. Nobody does that as well as the USA. There is good news...... out with the USA announcers, the ESPN hype m...
