Good Grief, people! Get off your "alternative reality" BS!

Alternative Reality? Wow!

I guess the President doesn't deserve respect like the one before.

The office should be respected. Given some of the current president's actions so far in office I question whether he respects the office.

We there is another way too look at it. There are millions of people that are completely happy with Trump and his actions. They voted him in. Those same people dealt with the last eight years. They also had more dignity and more respect for our president.

There are more millions who didn't vote for him because they recognized he would be in over his head and was unfit for presidency. But argumentum ad populum is an invalid argument. As for them having more dignity and more respect for his predecessor, well, maybe I'll comment on that later. It's hard to type when I'm laughing so hard.

Hard to respect someone who shows little to no respect for the office and position he holds, the constitution our nation is governed by, our endangered environment which we need to protect and ALL Americans, regardless of sex, race and religion.

This is a man who is profoundly intellectually, temperamentally, morally and ethically challenged (to say the least) who lacks honor, honesty, integrity, emotional stability and manners, to name a few.

All because he has different opinions than you and the rest of the liberals. If he thought like you did he would be just perfect. Like Bill Clinton. I'm sure he is a much better person than Donald Trump.

You liberals lost because of the radical and unapologetic wealth redistribution that occurred over the last eight years. Many in the blue wall states were affected. Your advantage in that area is lost. As long as prosperity is apparent most people are more inclined to vote Democrat. They have been taken from and they aren't happy.
Plus how can you constantly bash Trump but support Hillary Clinton. Do you really believe she is a good person? Because there is plenty of evidence to the contrary.
Or is it because she knows what you want to hear and will do anything to get your vote.

Where was all the bemoaning when the previous president was violating the rights of Americans

The level of cognitive dissonance is mind boggling to post things like this (Unless you are trolling) I guess if they have a D next to their name, its OK

That's not disrespectful at all, OBama was saying he was going to do something illegal that shouldn't be done.. something that technically shouldn't be possible to do (and thus, a lie).


Got anything from the first 50 days, or 3 months, or 1st year where someone worth 9 figures with a HUGE following "mock shot" the president?

I don't see how you can even categorize the two in the same light.

Plus the mainstream media LOVED Obama no-matter-what, they HATE trump and that's obvious as hell (plus highly influential to an unfortunate majority of the US).

The negative bias is comparable to the positive bias I guess.

There were no "republican funded" riots or riot groups, none of this has ever happened before. it's a bit insane.

That is nothing but leftist jaw boning. Liberals have been saying this stuff so much no one except leftists are paying attention to it. You guys need new material.
That guy that had the guts to run against Pelosi for MINORITY leader should have been elected unanimously. He seemed to have some good ideas. Nancy Pelosi is a nut case who only connects with her nutty constituents. The Democrats should tell Hillary to stay in the woods. The Clinton's will have to be done with for the party to ever be in control of anything again. There are several that need to go for the good of the Democratic party. None of them will move aside voluntarily. So for now screaming, crying and name calling is the strategy. Trump will dismantle the opposition if they don't change their strategy soon. He was smart enough to win with all of them and the media screaming their heads off.big grin

I'd really like to see Rand Paul run for President in 2024. After Trump changes the political climate in DC

Wow! You've bought the tickets to the "alternative reality" (aka/LIES) and you're not giving them up. Hope you and your children's children's children don't suffer from your short sightedness and your unfortunate beliefs in a self-serving charlatan.

Unfortunately, I think we all will.

"It is not, perhaps, unreasonable to conclude, that a pure and perfect democracy is a thing not attainable by man, constituted as he is of contending elements of vice and virtue, and ever mainly influenced by the predominant principle of self-interest. It may, indeed, be confidently asserted, that there never was that government called a republic, which was not ultimately ruled by a single will, and, therefore, (however bold may seem the paradox,) virtually and substantially a monarchy."
ALEXANDER FRASER TYTLER, LORD WOODHOUSELEE, University History, vol. 1, book 2, chapter 6, p. 216 (1838).

37% approval rating.

The deal with Trump is the same deal with Bernie to me. Populists make promises they can't keep (not that other politicians don't) and these promises are the direct reason they were elected. We really had an unacceptable choice this year for president. That said, Trump's manic tweeting, his irrational behavior when meeting foreign leaders, and inability to humble himself ever are going to be what brings him down in the end. I have a lot of popcorn and rum

If you mean the US military, yes. Indefinite nearly free health care for families, stipends that significantly brace up cost of living, retirement benefits after 20 years, special discounted shopping for life, free college for all those Phoenixes .... definitely entitlement.

It's a separate and well-tended to cultural class for sure - made possible by US paranoia and political strategy (or lack of).

Definitely feeds the I got mine attitude among military personnel and veterans.

To hell with feeding hungry children and shut-ins.

Trump isn't helping himself, certainly; but the nearly complete media collusion against him has to be factored in as well, that's not happened before and most people are mental lemmings, following what ever the glowing box says.

Seems like a heavily manipulated situation, from all sides.

Oh those ad hominem arguments. My comment had nothing to do with the overall military budget. You change the subject.

As a matter of fact, I have friends and family actively serving in the military.

Most are low level officers who take full advantage of all those benefits and entitlements that are legally theirs to exploit BTW. Lots of ways to do that and accumulate wealth. What a racket.

But I'm sure you know that, too.

Polio, measles, mumps, chicken pox and diphtheria are why vaccines are essential to protect babies. But if you don't care about anybody but yourself then let's help those diseases make a come back.
