Your video doesnt work on other sites.

You only quoted one phrase. The nuke BS.

He never asked "if we have them why cant we use them"

That is not an actual quote. That is BS you never fact checked.

And the dream is dead. Most people cant buy a home, car and educate their kids with the worthless jobs we have and the current cost of living.

That was the dream, and it is an impossibility thanks to a top heavy government that sold our infrastructure and left us to pay insane taxes with little return while we wage wars for profit with that money. Oh, well, we do get a pittance back if destitute but only if we stay poor can we get it.

Also, propaganda is legal....which sucks, our media is a monopoly by a select few, which sucks, and we have criminals running for office who are propped up just because they have a vagina. The dream is not that.

If these Kids Really want to Learn Something about the American System of Government , and the Politics of it , they should Petition their Principle to Bring Civics Classes back into the Schools Curriculum . That was the First Teachings the Socialist Liberals made Sure to get Rid of when they Hijacked Learning in America and turned it into " Ignorance Is Bliss " . .

He isnt losing, kids should fear the war Hillary wants to start, and what exactly is his "doom"?

You can't seriously be asking that question.

Start with 'The American Dream is DEAD". What child should have to listen to that BS?

"Why have nukes if we aren't going to use them" I'll just leave it there.
Listen to him and figure it out for yourself.

I agree, "The American Dream" isn't dead, You just now have to travel to Central or South America to achieve it. I'm thinking Uruguay at 22-1 exchange rate and the Government is Pro Cannabis, so "pro" they actually sell it.
I saw a 990 sq ft. apt. in the Capitol city of Montevideo, 2 blocks from the water and it rented for $68.00 USD/month. What do You think a Lobster dinner would cost?

But if I survive My Wife, I will head to either India or somewhere in Asia, where the elderly are appreciated. By the time I get 'there' IF I get 'there' the "Affordable Healthcare" will have expanded to actual "Death Panels" I just read where an assisted suicide pill is $1.20 but the insurance won't cover the chemotherapy for the cancer. The little old Lady pulling Her oxygen cart? Someone will beat Her up yelling "I'M SICK OF PAYING FOR YOUR AIR!!!!!!!!"

It's about time we raise a generation of children who don't scurry off to safe spaces when confronted with different opinions..

We become better from being able to debate our differences of opinion...

There is so much more that our next generation can achieve, create, invent.. if we teach them that it's ok to think for yourself..

There will always be extreme opinions that take advantage of the freedoms our country allows... but it is minimal compared to the sheltering of our future through PC BS that stifles individual thought...

Good lord, the kids I know don't scurry off about anything. They have opinions and aren't afraid to express them.
They stand up for themselves.

I think this whole "safe space" thing is exaggerated.

There are some who fight to keep their identity.. I agree... but too many are lost in the progressive school system..

Someone has to fight for them... they deserve to learn more than an agenda pushed by a large liberal lobby...

1+1 doesn't = 11

Oh, for God's sakes! Get the safe spaces ready! You know what the kids in previous generations had to look forward to?

Storming the beaches of Normandy with a scant chance of living through it. Each generation subsequent to that has gotten weaker, more dependent, and more entitled.

Yes. Boomer here, I know what I had to look forward to. Nuclear annihilation and/or being sent to fight in a stupid war in Southeast Asia. All courtesy of that previous generation.

But you weren't annihilated, were you, Phage? Turns out MAD worked. :-) (Courtesy of the same guy who brought us the Many Worlds Theory, Hugh Everett.) And that war in SE Asia? 58,000 or so of our generation died, and it was stupid. Or, more to the point, we gave up. Now, how many of our fathers died in WW II? So are you a Vietnam vet, Phage? How about a "Vietnam-era Vet"? Subtle difference there.

a reply to: tadamanYes, if Hillary gets elected we will lose America forever. She is running Obama's agenda which is to have One World Government, open borders under UN control. Why can't people see what is happening in other Countries where the Islamic Muslims are taking over their Country! It's all part of a plan that has been in the works for a long time. John F. Kennedy tried to warn us, but he was murdered before he could lay the facts out to us. He also warned the media not to lie to us, but to be honest with the people so that we could keep the WH in check. There will be One World religion. Islamic! The Bilderbergs, Bush's, Clintons, Chaney, Kissinger, etc are all a part of this. Like Obama jokingly said, The End To The Republic Never Looked So Good! Only he wasn't joking. This isn't even the half of it!

These comments are all over the net. If you want to believe people can't accomplish a good lifestyle in this country, and have a better chance of that here than many other countries (most other countries - the world is a big place) and that Donald Trump is not a buffoon who thinks only of his own self-glorification, then you go right ahead.

I don't have to think about it, because he's a loser, and he's losing this election.

I'm out. Feel free to attack me in my absence. I don't have time for your silly offenses and your defense of this pathetic excuse of a human being.

I wish that you would do some research because this Country is about to be lost forever in a few years if Hillary gets elected. a reply to: angeldoll

What you said

3-Do you push these agendas at home, with your children or siblings?

If you are, then you are in my opinion teaching children to hate based on your beliefs, not their experiences. Roll around the house screaming about Clinton? What is your daughter/sister going to take away from that? Do the same thing about Trump? What is your son/brother taking away from that? Dem or Rep? Are you teaching your children and fellows to be divisive over imaginary groups?

I'm no saint. I'm guilty of some of these things. I am however going to make a change.

Nice to see that there are people who haven't drank the Kool Aid. Good for you!

Thats not an actual quote. There is no transcript.

It is an allegation. By one man. And its BS.

You could simply say, "oh my bad," but you try to defend a lie, blindly.

He is not losing, hence the fevered campaigning by the hillary campaign.

CTR is busy trying to cover up scandal after scandal, project veritas and other such REAL journalistic efforts and so on.

You are the only one who insulted anyone and called anyone names.

I didnt. But hey enjoy being mean spirited when people dont agree with you. Typical and expected at this point.

Could we talk about the kids experiences from the video in the OP and how this year it's started up, the bullying of Hispanics or Muslim or other cultures as a childlike reflection of Donald Trump's rhetoric that gives voice to these type of sentiments?

Subtle difference there.

You not so subtly revised your claim from this:

You know what the kids in previous generations had to look forward to?
I know what I had to look forward to.

On topic, if you think that the denigration of a child has no effect you are deluded. If you think the words of some one who aspires to be the leader of the country have no effect, you are deluded.

Part of me thinks what these kids are experiencing is simply called immaturity. The fact is when these 'kids' are making comments like those in the video they are doing it for attention and to gain popularity from their peers. The group of people I used to be in at school became very much into 'bullying' people in order to gain popularity with peers. May I please make clear that I didn't join in with this behaviour and saw being in the group as a bit of immunity as well as the fact i'd been friends with people in this group for years and didn't feel I had any outside of it. Additionally I thought about calling this out but never saw anybody gain success whether internally or with school staff so simply kept my head down.

This wasn't in America, this was in Britain and mind you it was only about 2010 and at high school when I was around 13. People from outside the group were preyed on - one girl who looked middle eastern obviously had the 'terrorist and racial slurs said behind her back. Girls who were of a larger size and who didn't mix with boys were called lesbian whales. Random boys being called retard outcasts. what American's might call jocks were actually called cavemen and neanderthals (a name they in fact liked and kept). The way which this behaviour manifested was that it was classed by those in the group as 'banter' there was a fair bit in the group itself - one lad who probably had some genes from the Mediterranean and was often joked about and portrayed to be middle eastern. Another boy who was black had jokes around him referring to his skin colour and heritage which became the trademark of his own popularity. In fact this form of verbal beat-down was something that actually seemed to happen to a majority of people even in the group - one boy being called a sex maniac who was into bestiality and child pornography (to paraphrase), another being called 'completely inbred', another being called a 'gay faggot'.

Really considering my experiences in school I feel that this is all behaviour that could be considered natural, to boys at least, of that age. I even remember being 11 and two boys prompted each other to do Nazi salutes behind the teachers back to provoke laughs and to stay boredom.

This behaviour is of course bad behaviour which shouldn't be encouraged but to my experiences to throw out these edgy insults and these stupid ways were simply very advanced class clowning of which I'm quite certain that the Nazi saluting boys have turned out the opposite of Nazis, those calling out 'gay faggot' weren't and aren't homophobes, those who called others inbred didn't really care who your parents were or what your gene makeup was, those who called paedophile weren't trying to take meaning away from that word by misusing it and those who brought out the racial slurs aren't and weren't racist.

The fact really was that at that school you had young males who wanted to show off and be popular, and you had a school system with very weak authority over student behaviour that was generally struggling on all fronts. I if this school has the same bad discipline and lack of care from teaching staff.
