How sad that our self-confessed little bigot thinks that his responses address the obvious racism and bigotry of his hero. His responses just reinforce them child. 

However I will not take the time to respond to your responses because I think it's obvious to everybody you're just digging yourself in deeper. In addition, when you do respond it's with logical fallacies, non sequiturs, strawman arguments and whataboutisms. You play right into the stereotype of stupid Trump supporters.

You want proof of just how bad this presidency is? Bad enough that bill and I are backing each other up and enjoying a laugh together. It takes a special kind of bad to shake the world.

Bloomberg. 

No. Give money to Biden in a SuperPAC. Don’t take votes away from him. 

Thank you for coming to my TED Talk. 

An early speech in Citizen Kane brings to light the thinking of people like Bloomberg. This dialog of Kane's is supposed to be noble, but reading it now it actually seems like the beginning of the end of Kane. I don't think this was this deliberate.

Anyways his guardian, rich man, Walter Thatcher is discovering that his ward is against everything he and the other rich men of New York are for. So Kane explains to him his newspaper's new philosophy:

"KANE--On the other hand. I am the publisher of the Enquirer. As such, it is my duty - and I'll let you in on a little secret, it is also my pleasure - to see to it that decent, hard-working people of this city are not robbed blind by a group of money - mad pirates because, God help them, they have no one to look after their interests! I'll let you in on another little secret, Mr. Thatcher. I think I'm the man to do it. You see, I have money and property. If I don't defend the interests of the underprivileged, somebody else will - maybe somebody without any money or any property and that would be too bad."

That last sentence in retrospect is so weird. However, it is prescient: save us from the rich out to help us little folks. Or, with the current president, those who would rob us.

In today's Wall Street Journal;

"Ambassador Bill Taylor said that his work to release frozen security assistance to Ukraine was stymied because top-level cabinet officials were too busy dealing with President Trump's idea to purchase Greenland. "  

Napa  There are a few job openings at FOX News.  Take one and make it your full time job.  Then you will be able to kiss a$$ of the bone Spur guy.

Would love to hear of your justification as to why the bone spur guy was invited to marshall the Veteran Days event in NYC.   He was a draft dodger, hated anyone that was captured in battle [McCain], cuts back the Veteran's Benefits, Cut services at the VA hospitals etc.  A real T--d in my book.    Has no knowledge of the US Constitution, and as a well known fact he does not like to read

Or anyone's opinion on Trump actually considering attending next year's May Day celebrations in Moscow.  When I first saw this headline, I thought it had to be The Onion.

The orange dump is obsessed with trying to forge a legacy. This said, he will be successful as he will be only the third president ever to be impeached. 😂

I haven’t been on the forum much lately. I see Napafluffer is no different than the man he fluffs... seems I recall he was finished with this site. Liar, which is the best of what can be said of him/her. 

Now that Iran called the little bone spurs bluff and has positioned itself for a rapid nuclear breakout that none other than Mike Pompeo sounded the alarm on Thursday of this week.  What a failure from the swaggering reply Orange Dump and Pompeo who both said that sanctions would force Iran to change their behavior.🤣.  A willfully ignorant president surrounding himself with only old white yes men that has the intellectual depth of an amoeba  and the temperament of a petulant child is simply dangerous. All this plus a clinically ill narcissistic coward that refuses to listen to the pentagon does not bode well.

There was nothing either nuanced or humorous about that post, Cat.  But if you consider yourself so nuanced and humorous, perhaps you could get a booking on a conservative comedy channel.  Oh... yeah, I don't think there are any.  Wonder why?

And... calling people idiots and morons is no way to influence people.  Typically, this is done with logic and facts.  Still waiting for your treatise on the Electoral College, and your answer to my question about the phone call.  

PH

People say the worst things and when someone else speaks like them they say “don’t call us names”.  It’s just a bit of the same.  
People say Trump is not civil...however he has been attacked every single day with some terrible things said about him...just more hypocrisy.

I’ll need to go back and read your two questions...missed them.

Napacat whether or not you have a homosexual bone in your body I'm not going to call you a f@g. In much the same way I'm not going to call bman a n!gger, Purplehaze a retard, or TheOldMan a wop. It doesn't really matter if one is black (he happens not to be), one is autistic or otherwise mentally challenged (he certainly isn't) and one is Italian (I don't believe he is). I just don't use those words for anyone. In my head or out of my mouth or with my fingers on a keyboard. 

"Pocahontas" is no less a slur than any of those other ones I typed above (which you hopefully cringed while reading). It has no bearing on her ancestry, it's a slur.  

All of us here need to be better than that, you included. 

Fair post Rob...point taken. 

Why do I suddenly want to bust my Belgian waffle maker out of the cupboard?  Damn you, Bytown Rick!  

In unrelated news I just found out after decades of mistaken good intentions, that #6 plastic Go-Cups are NOT recyclable.   

I've likely put a few thousand of these puppies into the blue bin with good intentions.  Not only are they not accepted where I live, my putting them into the bin has likely caused additional expense and aggravation to our municipal employees.  It's hard to be good these days.

Bloomberg vs. Trump:   Two 74+ year old wealthy guys.  One was a Democrat who became a Republican. One a  Democrat who once was a Republican.  Basically, both from NY.

Meanwhile, Trump said about Bloomberg a day or two ago, "He's got some personal problems."    Trump, of course, is an expert on personal problems.

Something horrendous happened to friends of ours recently. I really need to get better at not getting too worked about disagreements, and being able to discuss/argue things in a less angry way. Goes for work as well as here. There are people dealing with things way worse than what I could imagine living with. I’ve always been reactionary to a fault; using the pause button would be good for me to remember to do. And yes, we agree on this subject for sure.

"As for Biden...yes I have heard the same defense.  Odd how this quid pro quo is ok though."

God you're so ignorant and as I've said many times just such a poor debater. Funny about that word "though." Not only is it the proof of the demagogue in chief's anti-democratic act, but with it your use of it you are admitting that Trump did what he's accused of, offering a quid pro quo to it get a foreign country to give him dirt on a political opponent. Meanwhile there's no proof of anything in regard to Biden. But let's say there were, I'm going to make a shocking statement that it's not near the offense of blackmailing other countries to help you win a US election.

Also please read up on today's news from Great Britain that Trump was trying to squeeze information against his political "enemies."

"His job was to recommend charges or not."

I guess you didn't read my response, or are deliberately ignoring it as a good Fox State News viewer. He was constrained from recommending charges because of a DOJ rule. PS, not a law.

May I suggest you find some other thread to respond to because every time you do here you just dig yourself down deeper and deeper.

You are a bitter and rotten soul and I presume an overall jerk of a human.  You, Old Man,  think I implied that Trump had a quid pro quo ( I did not).  I stated "odd how this quid pro quo was ok" (Biden).  You interpret that to imply that I indicated that Trump made one as well...nice leap.  Stick to the person I was speaking about. 

If the rule is that a sitting president cannot be indicted...then what was the point of the entire investigation.  You know they would have nailed them if they could. On one hand....Trump is a moron and the dumbest president ever.  On the other hand, you also want us to believe he is brilliant and worked with Russia to get elected and was able to hide it from the special council. Man...You all are a tiring bunch. 

And the Cellarnewbie  who states: "Also, he lost the popular vote by 3 million, because is president because land gets more electoral credit than urban areas".

This is only due to Los Angels County / Southern CA and Manhattan.  You think we want  this group of out of touch people to sway the general elevation in their favor...not at all.   Any talk of dissolving the Electoral College is nonsensical and just bitterness from the losing side.

Get over it...Trump will win again.  

There are more people in Los Angeles than in Wyoming, North or South Dakota, Idaho, etc, yet each of those states gets far more representation in DC than just the people of Los Angeles.  You don't think people in NYC or LA should get an equal say in the vote?  Why shouldn't 1 person = 1 vote?

Vice versa...you think that a large concentration of liberal democrats in LA or NY should make a small state’s populations vote irrelevant?

As to the debates on the "one man, one vote" and number of representatives and weight, etc., as reflected in the above two posts:   I wonder if the folks who drafted the Constitution in the 18th century had debates with as much vitriol. 

Apparently our disease had crossed the border to the North.  For the Canadians on the forum...is the below statement really deserving of losing your job over it?

The longtime broadcaster went on a rant about the lack of poppies he had seen leading up to Remembrance Day. In Canada, the flowers are traditionally worn in honor of veterans.

“I live in Mississauga,” Cherry said. “Nobody wears, very few people, wear a poppy. Downtown Toronto, forget it. Downtown Toronto nobody wears a poppy.

“Now you go to the small cities and you know, the rows on rows. You people love — you, that come here, whatever it is — you love our way of life, you love our milk and honey. At least you could pay a couple bucks for a poppy or something like that. These guys paid for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada. These guys paid the biggest price.

Just amazing.  All he is saying is wear a Poppy...it's about the least you can do.

Age removes filters and those things that you once said in your head eventually get said out loud and you are at a point where you don't realize or don't care when people hear it. 

Don Cherry is a racist, xenophobe and isolationist. Now with the filter gone he's a raving one and doesn't realize that what he's saying goes against how the majority of Canadian's feel. Most of us are very turned off by it.  

I agree that everyone should wear a poppy leading up to this day. The thing is that everyone watching that rant by Cherry understood that what he was saying was in effect "those foreign, brown people streaming into our country are not like us, don't care about us, will never be like us and shouldn't be here."

If the majority of Canadian's feel that way about him, imagine how we feel about Trump.

I had / have no known history of this man or even who he is or his background. Just was noting the statement itself taken at face value did not seem that it warranted the firing.

So you react in the moment, are too lazy to make any attempt at researching the “victim’s” background or perform even a small measure of due diligence, and come straight here to whine like a snowflake?

Thanks for confirming yet again you are dumber than you look........

I think so as well.  Glad you agree that the outcome does not make sense.

Not really...just by the politically correct crowd and the crowd that has to label everyone.  And then there are people like you...who just like to pounce on when they think they see easy prey and really have nothing to add.  

I don't think I have ever read any post of interest you wrote or contributed to.  Really a bunch of drivel.  But carry on...
