Dear 41,

A man came along who had never been elected to public office and ascended to the office of President of the United States. Sorry you denied him as your last effort of proprietary political selfishness. A truly great man once said: "“I die the king's faithful servant, but God's first.”......before his execution. Today we bear witness to the Lords mercy in your long life......where politics no longer matter....,and ultimately never did.

Pitchfork peasant

Trump came along and raped America. May he rest easy.


How much longer are you going to pretend to be outraged? I'm of the belief you are posting to be an agitator - not because you actually believe what you post. Most of it defies any kind of logic, and I think you are either fully aware, or perhaps permanently baked. I do think it's funny - not just playing the agitation card, which has it's moments of hilarity, particularly when folks take it seriously and over react - but to spend so much time doing it. You've been pretending to rage for two years now - and nothing you have said about Trump has come to fruition. I;m a moderate and a centrist - I kick back and watch both sides - but how many times are you going to get curb stomped before you realize you are rooting for the wrong team? Oh, before you go all hostile - that's not saying you should be a Trump fan, I'm saying you should probably take a look at you 'information' sources and realize they are the problem, not Trump. Your faux rage makes me chuckle, though. :P

I may be the only one who sees through the charade. You're simply playing a character that is now the town fool.


Yeah, you are pretty much right on the money. I am glad to hear you are finding my posts as entertaining/enlightening as I am.

I don't take the time to write very lengthy and well-thought out responses here, as I am pretty busy unlike a few such as Hawk and Moe who are either unemployed or retired. But it is fun to come stir the pot as this board is about 80% far right Trumpers, 10% moderates/centralists and then 10% including myself of anti Trumpers!

I am not against some conservatism but I am completely against Trumpism. He is a total joke and you probably know this as well.

2) Its not a time of mourning....its an opportunity to bash Trump.

3) Reminds me of how Saul treated David

I think this is where you are making wildly inaccurate assumptions, or atrumptions. Trump isn't representative of conservatism or the right - he's spent his whole life as a democrat if you look back though his history. While conservatives will always be the core of the Reps, Trumps' election was a push back against the cabals of the horribly damaging Liberals and the Clintons. The left is SO far left now that moderates appear right to them. This election showed that moderates Americans are rejecting the dems and the Liberal extremism that has been allowed to fester under their regimes. This board, nor is America, 80% far right wingers. But you can make an argument that 80% are rejecting extreme liberalism - as they should. Extreme anything is bad unless pizza is involved.

Remember the latest rage? The 'caravan' nonsense? On what planet does it make sense to allow open borders? No first world country on the planet does that - none. But the leftist media is trying to tell you the opposite to harrass Trump. After Obama created the Syrian refugee crisis, Russia flat-out refused to take in their refugees, Why? "We take care of Russia, not the rest of the world's problems". Yeah, especially not ones created by Liberals. The influx of Obamas refugees has been a disaster for the countries that did. Putin 100% nailed it. The US should do the same - stop allowing the ilk in. There is NOTHING to be gained. Do you want them in your neighborhood? Do YOU want to pay for their housing, food, insurance, etc? Then go to Texas and hand out the checks, cause we cannot afford this welfare-state bullshit anymore. We are at capacity. Everything with the Libs is about redistributing your money to others. F that.

As far as Trump being a joke - can you pls give specific examples? Consider this. Clinton was gifted the nomination. Money was thrown at her, the nomination was thrown at her, every possible advantage was hers. Trump was given nothing. In the most crucial swing states - Bill urged Hillary to stump there - she refused. Trump did the work. Trump was disadvantaged from day one - and yet he won. Greatest upset in American history. How does that make him a joke? Seems to me all of these things make Hillary the joke. Something tells me you know this.

Trump is a self made man - he's worked for a living his whole life - Hillary has never had a job. Yup, Trump burps and farts and tweets and is in no way a polished politician, and yet he won. How is that a joke? He's probably one of the most skilled Presidents we've had in business, economics, trade agreements, negotiation, because he's had to actually to work for a living, unlike the his political constituents who've been living off of the American taxpayer's for decades. How is that not better? Since he took office he has been relentlessly harrangued by the media, and yet he's survived it all, unscathed. You don't think that is only going to make his base grow? The faux rage will only serve to make him stronger, don't you see that? He has his faults and flaws - pls show me someone who doesn't.

The "Russian Collusion' is the perfect example. The dems get busted rigging an American election (isn't that an actual crime?), and then the jump start this absurd Russian accusation (notice it was even worded as 'hacking' not "rigging" which is a actual crime so as not to antagonize Putin) to simply deflect attention away from the real criminals - the Dems.

The absolute best part about the (faux) trump rage, is that it doesn't make him look bad - by electing him it shows how much WORSE Hillary/Dems and Extreme Liberals are, and how sick of them Americans are. Ask most Trump ragers to be specific about what they're raging about, and it's usually these broad, vague, generalizations, nothing concrete or specific. None of this is about being a Trump fan or a right winger - it's pointing out how f'n stupid, clueless, and empty headed this breed of extreme Liberals are, and how quickly we need to run away from that, to some common-sense moderation. Trump is pretty damn moderate. Faking rage is part of the problem.

I'd be legit curious to know how you actually feel - because I get the impression you really don't fake hate Trump at all, that you actually understand he's doing a pretty good job, all things considered, especially if you tune out all the media/liberal fake news. Kind of refreshing to see a President putting THIS country first for a change. How is that a joke, exactly?

None of this is meant to be 'in defense' of Trump. SImply look at the data and the metrics and the patterns of media behavior, endless false accusations and fake news reports, and realize he's not the problem - it's the media and extreme liberalism that are the problem. All this 'noise' is just meant to distract from that. Ultimately, when you do the fake rage thing - you encourage and perpetuate social division, yo are not encouraging unison. We aren't all that different - we all want the same things - but manufacturing fake anger IS the problem, not Trump. I think it's irresponsible to stoke the fires of hate - while hiding behind empty notion of socially conscious 'liberalism'. Real liberalism should be a tool used to unite - this version is only a tool used to divide - and no one benefits.

To add to aurora's excellent rant above, we've moved away from the old Republican vs Democrat arguments. Trump is not very conservative unless you're looking at judicial appointments. He's a moderate who used to fit in nicely with the middle of the Democrat party. But as aurora says, the left has moved so far left that even moderate Democrats look like their far right-wingers.

The division now is between globalist and nationalist. Neither viewpoint is bad in and of itself. There should be a mixture, in fact, of national and global leadership from our politicians. What's happened, though, is that the socialists have taken over the Democrats and they're trying to march us over a cliff. How can we afford free health care and college and whatever while also allowing open borders and telling the world they have the right to come here if they've got a bad enough hard luck story. These socialists are actually aligned with the wealthiest Americans because it's those interests that drive illegal immigration. Only about 5% of these people are taking jobs that Americans don't want picking fruit and working in the slaughter factory. Over half our illegals flew into the country on Visas and decided to stay permanently. Those people are taking high paying tech jobs. Great for Bezos and Gates but bad for the American worker.

I prefer globalist over nationalist but it's a damn fine line.

Nice thoughts beenthere.
He lived a long life and so did his wife.
I loved that woman. Her dark eyes and

His memorials were nice. Seem's
