Also true. I also love all the "Clinton suicide" conspiracy theories. According to the people that subscribe to that the Clintons make the Mafia of 1900-1960 look like rank amateurs.

Don't get me started on local elections. Remember. I live in Oregon We actually tried to impeach our Governor and failed this year. This bitch wants to force feed us higher taxes,ignores the death penalty,and insists that climate change needs all out money. All of which we already voted opposite. Talk about useless votes. This state is so blue a Smurf would be jealous.

Unfortunately with social media and the internet in general, anyone who can string 3 words together coherently can write, publish and build an audience spreading any message they can think of. Will be interesting to see how much money is spent on Fakebook and others during this next election cycle spewing complete bullshit.

It's no longer good enough to question the source, the shit flows from everywhere

I vote. But, it doesn't amount to much.
I ran for office and won (big deal local school board) I promised to serve one term and accomplish 3 things I thought were important... and we did those three things... and even though I had plenty of support to run again, I said, nope, I said I wanted the luxury of integrity by doing one term and focusing on that... and I did not run again.

One of my relatives is a congressman and it looks like a shitty business.

I don't care about politics, I think it goes like it goes whether I do or I don't, so I spend my energy on stuff I can make a difference on. My wife works with foster kids and it turns out if you focus on her case load, 25 kids, you can actually help about half of them. The other half just aren't ready or it just isn't the right time or their issues are greater than the help we provided...

My post retirement career is cool. I actually get to help people and while I do have to deal with some political people, I try to marginalize those interactions as they always include compromises that are not cool.

One thing I know from meeting political people, generals etc who make world wide decisions.... they are very regular people and all very flawed... it is usually their ego and their ambition that lead them to their roles.. not intelligence nor talent... When these dudes do the stuff they do... they aren't more capable than regular people... just more obsessed with being 'important'...

which should be a concern. Our democracy is strong... it was designed by people who knew our frailties and they planned for it... Stand by, another retard is on the way to 'save us'.... and we'll survive that too.

that doesn't happen by accident. but yeah, it has been what seems like quite a while since we've had an assassination attempt (sorry congressmen, you don't count as important enough. somebody could blow up parliament and all us peasants wouldn't blink an eye)

This one is fun. As if the Clintons aren't a PR team for thousands of constituents who all have varying interests and connections themselves. But no, it is just these two people. Not the business interests they represent.

True. The bullshit heaped on Obama here was just like what BossBuilt is saying has happened to Trump.
All sides are equally as guilty of this stuff.

I was pointing out that you had just given me essentially that response. I guess you missed that. "Trump's a dipshit." "So what are you?"

You're pretty sure of that? Because you're so confident of his thoughtful, intelligent presidential bearing?

He sounds like everdouche.



I actually don't hate his presidency, as Republicans go...he's just obnoxious.

Only news I hear about comes from the PBB and I take it with a grain of salt. I gave up watching the news & TV in general about 3yrs ago when I moved to Tx. Life is good.

Disappointed. I don't understand how these people can still want her around when she has no respect for our choices. It's baffling. She's blue and they hate Trump so they keep her.

No I got your point and you're right. I Tend to look past his obnoxious persona and enjoy that it stirs the pot. I'm sick that way. I see what he's doing and like how he thinks. Like all humans he has his strengths and weaknesses. If he was a great speaker (by the way has nothing to do with intelligence) I think things would be very different. I'm of the opinion that he thinks further and deeper than most people think or can comprehend
. It's fucked that the media is making him hurdle but he has exposed them and they have no choice but to dig their hole deeper. He brought it on himself which is regrettable but at the same time he has exposed their hypocrisy and bias. I think it's important that people know they are being lied to.

You've got a good point. "EverDouche for President" is a pretty fantastic recipe for luls.

I'm still not convinced on the 3d-chess thing. He's fantastic at tweaking the noses of the media, but I don't see any over-arching strategy or direction. But maybe he's such a super-genius that he can flawlessly maintain his cover as an average doofus...

I've been getting a real chuckle out of my liberal friends saying "He's going to declate martial law, and refuse to step down!!! " Because 1) horseshit, and 2) I heard exactly the same line about Obama from conservative friends!

I am not really a fan of how Trump structures a conversation. ď I had a call with Ukraine and it was PERFECT! NOBODY couldíve had a better call with the Ukraine! Everything I said was BEAUTIFUL!ď It just sounds ...... insecure or dumb. But thatís who he is, and even though I would much prefer a Paul (Rand or Ron), he is better than about anyone else on the field.

I'm starting to agree with position. I really don't like the way the guy talks. But he's doing a good job of shaking things up and making people question the establishment. Maybe that's all his roll really needs to be.

Like the cartoon Tanzanian Devil: "A ravenous beast with jaws like a steal trap - Eats (list of everything)" - followed by headlines of hysteria about how he'll eat you.

I hope he clears the way for meaningful change. The Left has a strong hold that needs to be broken (mentally). It's not the kind of thing that war could break. It's a mentality that has manifested itself as a humanitarian movement. It's good that people are beginning to think for themselves and wake up from the brainwashing of the Left. I believe Trump and his anti-establishment message has a lot to do with that. Even people who hate trump have sought to figure things out on his behalf.

For years the Dems spewed whatever bullshit they wanted and the media carries their water.

The left is going insane that Trump calls them on their bullshit, I admit it is very entertaining .
