Did the Squat Cobblers do anything noteworthy today?
Uh oh...Michelle My Belle wants to join the Squat Cobblers? They may need to unionize at some point.

I am not calling brown people liars.
Oh, they do, though. It's called "Taqiyya" and you should look into it, it may wake you up.

I understand your fear. The Trump supporters realize that by parroting and owning every one of Trump's ideas and proclivities, those ideologies become theirs. Because of that, if he is labeled a racist, so are the supporters. If he goes down, so do they. They are so linked at this point, there is no going back.
But you dug this grave.

Did anyone see this? Anderson Cooper tried to get together 8 Texas Republican women to get at least some of them to say that Trump's tweets were racist, and not one of them, not even the immigrant one, would say they were.
This is why they don't get it. Democrats constantly tell us that women are a natural constituency group of theirs, but how many more women are there like these who are getting both bored and angry by all this?

I've met some white people in my time that have been horrible people and not once have i had the urge to tell them to go back to the country they came from. I doubt if any white citizen has ever been told to do that.
So ya, I think there's a tad bit of racism involved.

My friend is native American, and ya she does have a chip on her shoulder at times. But ya see, she spent a good part of her childhood in one of the Canadian Indian schools, so I have a good idea of why that chip is there.
One thing I am pretty sure of is that most of the white people in trumps rally haven't experienced anything close to what she did at the hands of of any person of color and am just about willing to bet none of these Congress women has hurt them at all. I understand her reason, what is yours?

When was that ever the case? While not being nearly as dominant as it has been since the run-up to this previous presidential election, it was always there. When Bush was in office, quite a bit of bashing. When Obama ran, quite a bit of bashing. When Obama ran again, once more quite a bit of bashing. This previous election did have a high water mark of folks joining in on the bashing and pushing the conspiracy angles to the background. It's part of the reason I'm so suspicious of those who joined up right around the time of the race as a matter of fact, my guess is it's a lot of paid posters on both sides. I've tried to get a feel for what the pay rate is on the more obvious ones, but never can get an answer.

As an indipendent, I have to look at the sides.
One side is offering socialism, open borders, destruction of the second amendment and higher taxes.
Democrats want secure borders, none of the current candidates have never mentioned destruction of the 2nd Amendment (it would never pass anyway), and are (on average) asking for a 2% raise (in many cases) on incomes over $500,000, that won't affect 98% of Americans
Socialism gave you a 40 hour work week, weekends off, pensions, workplace benefits packages, labor standards, workplace health and safety standards, human resources department, envoronmental controls and regulations, and many other freedoms that you enjoy every single day. If it were up to Capitalism, the world would still be in the Industrial Revolution with how it treats workers.
If you're against Socialism, you should be willing to give up every little benefit that it ever provided to you and your family.
