    Sorry, I will update.

    Witnesses reported seeing an AR15 walking down the freeway,when all of the sudden it jumped up in the air and shot two innocent people driving down the road.

    A Hispanic performing a hit in the middle of rush hour traffic on the freeway,is perfectly normal and would not be considered a bad hombre.

    Thats 1980s drug hits Miami style,they were not interested in the garbage bag full of weed in the back seat,they were there for one reason,assignation,a bomb would have been better?

    You knew the next propaganda weapon would be brought out in light of it is hard to unseat a President in a election when the economy is bustling.

    The new word of the day ... Recession

    The economy of some of the rest of the world is coming off of thier peak,now it is the current president is at fault because of tariffs,and that will drag us down with the rest of the world.

    Interesting how the rest of the world is totally dependent on our trade policies in order for their survival.

    So, there you go, what is the reason for your endless complaints about unfair trade against the US, then?

    You drunk on that sixer o'Bud Light again there, Richard?

    ^ I was parlaying the mindset of the anti Trump crowd,foreign markets are downsliding because of that jerk Trump and his stupidity on wanting to create fair trade deals that also benefit the United States.

    Some just cannot stand the thought that he is actually doing what he was elected to do,look out for the United States first and foremost.

    If the worlds economy is based on our market,then why are we not providing jobs that actually support our own market.

    Because that is what capitalism is all about; corporate welfare and bailouts, insane discrepancies btwn rich and poor, no allegiance to nation, and a huge military to defend corporate interests' rights to plunder other nations' resources, insane cost of higher ed, and health care, more guns than you can sheikh a stick at, obesity and school lunch programs for the poor, oh; and school prayer, no abortion and Walmart. God bless.

    ^^^ That's quite an impressive summary there. I agree with some of it.

    Here's hoping there's no 'bleed' over (ex. 'insane discrepancies btwn rich and poor, no allegiance to nation') of this from other power groups/ bureaucracies we may be championing?

    PS. Prayer in school? Wondered why included in list as several religious groups choose that option.

    Yeah Canada sounds pretty messed up. Have you contacted true-d'oh! about cutting back on the cheese in your school lunch programs?

    There are people who supplement their income by picking up cans and bottles on the the side of the road. So by your definition we should encourage people to continue tossing cans and bottles out their car windows because it keeps the economy going.

    Much of your post confuses capitalism with corporatism (economic fascism). Corporatism combines big business with big government. The 10th. Amendment allows states a lot of latitude in rolling our expansive government to do things like operate public schools or have single payer health care.

    Corporate welfare and bailouts are corporatist. Bernie voted against the Iraq war and the bailouts. Tulsi Gabbard has been the only Dem. candidate to actively seek out a more sane foreign policy in this election. I don't see any Dem. candidate with an allegiance to our borders and beset upon American workers. None seem to comprehend that their policies played a big hand in our decreasing standard of living or that rising health care and university prices relate to our decreasing standard of living. As corporatists, much the same could be said about Chamber of Commerce Republicans.

    Capitalism is not responsible for improper gun use. Most people who die from guns and other weapons worldwide are victims of governments including our own. Wars and communist revolutions kill many more people.

    The Communist block nations including Eastern Europe, the USSR, and China certainly got rid of school prayer, private gun ownership, the insane cost of higher education, and eliminated some of the wealth/poverty gap. They provided government groceries, instead of Walmarts, that contributed to eliminating obesity. The Soviet Constitution even guaranteed affordable housing and jobs like the Democrats. Abortion were free and sometimes mandatory. The retort is that Scandinavia does better with its measure of social policies. That's true but numerically most socialists are still in Communist nations.

    Not many have a subscription to NYT in order to view the link,the recent firing of thier chief editor may boost subscriptions in the future though.

    Outside of that there are other links out there that say the same thing,and even go as far as saying it is an unverified comment.

    It would also appear that he is not the first president to allegedly make that comment.

    After the second world war, then-president Harry Truman offered to buy Greenland for $100m (83m) — a move that was rebuffed. The US State Department had floated the idea of buying both Greenland and Iceland as far back as 1867.
    US officials thus have considered Greenland to be important to their country’s national security interests, and have worked to make sure that China does not acquire an economic stake in the country.

    https://finance.yahoo.com/news/donal...075310880.html


    While people have been obsessed with Trump,China has been buying up entire cities that contain natural resources,mostly cobalt which is used in virtually every electronic device that we use and is crucial in future battery technology for electric vehicles.

    Control cobalt and you can control the world.

    So although the agenda always uses the we want to steal everybody’s else’s natural resources,they are forgetting that outside of a few critical national security resources,we have our own and do not need to send in the Salvation Army to take Canada or buy countries.

    Some times it is just about strategic moves.

    FYI: You don't need a subscription to view the link. Most newspapers, the Times included, will allow you to view a limited number of articles per month. This restriction is easily bypassed by opening the article in a the private browsing tab.

    Yes I understand that,but also understand when it comes to content anymore,very rarely does one media source have exclusive reporting on a given subject.

    Kinda like back in the day of Hot off of the wire.

    BTW welcome,interesting choice of first posts to respond to.

    Just so we get it out of the way from the start,I am a racist,deplorable,horrible speller that cannot form sentence structure and what ever else fits and very rarely watch FOX news,sense it will just stand to reason and for the record,no need to remind me.

    If I am really interested in a subject I try and read about it from several different sources,most are verbatim but sometimes one may have a line or two inserted that nobody else does,that may offer a little more insight and the unknown sources may be questionable at best it kinda leaves each source open to ones interpretation.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Thanks for the heads up. I try to avoid telling people what they are and how I think they should act. I mean, who the hell am I to say? Experience shapes who we are. We might not see things in the same way, but I haven't walked in your shoes so I try not to judge. I don't like being labeled and therefore try not to do it to others.

    As for me, my spelling is good, but only because I use spell check.

    It's abhorrent. Never saw ANY Republicans speak out about the multiple fake assassinations, lynchings, etc. of Obama:

    Not to mention the numerous REAL death threats, plots, and assassination attempts.

    ^^^ PLEASE GO KICK BRICKS! Posts and links regarding news, politics and opinions will go forward withstanding your unyielding, childish and unnecessary nasty remarks.

    I don't condone death treats regarding ANY president (shall I present a list of links, and former posts to prove that? Umm, nope), especially re. former president Obama where the concern was really high.

    As an independent I don't hold forth favoritism to either party or doxy when it comes to such crassness.

    Apparently you do.

    Some tend to have a bad memory. And it still continues to this day. Why was/is he hated so much? Honestly, my first thought is because he was the first black president. First thing out of McConnell's mouth..."my number one priority is make him a one term president"

    Actually they did but the left leaning media quickly either did not cover it or coined the concept of If you heard it on Fox News then it is a lie.

    Why do you think a biased media was such a subject in the last election,Trump did not create fake and biased news on the campaign trail,he used it as a sticking point because everybody already knew it existed and were tired of it.

    Only the news agencies can create and report biased news.

    The Republicans railed the previous administration just as much as the left does with this one.

    The difference is they tried to concentrate on getting down to buisness instead of countless drama based hearings and creating as big as a division in the country as possible.

    The government has stopped 53 terrorist attacks that would have equaled 9-11 but you do not hear about it,they do not tell you everything that is going on.

    Show me one instance where a comedian stood up with a severed head of Then President Obama,or the outrage with his deportation policies,or the amount of city burning riots,or the cleansing of history in this country of everything we do not agree with,the list is long.

    In the 8 years the only ones that received the hope and change that was promised was the bankers that hired the administration after leaving office with thier cushy multi million dollar salaries,while millions were thrown in the streets.

    Do you how much Fannymay sold those houses for after eviction of the buyer?

    A $200,000 forclosed house sold wholesale after eviction for $6000 in bulk purchase.

    I know people that made hundreds of millions really fast in that scam,they never even left the house or even looked at the purchases,it was all done with a laptop and moving numbers around on the screen.

    Hope and change all right,it was the systematic rape of the entire country,and he is a hero for it.
