Criticizing the president is hostile? Factts? It's my opinion that people have been moving closer to extremes. I'd put money down that many people criticing AOC for saying dumb things don't call trump out for saying dumb things either.

That's all i was saying. Facts? Well you didn't post stats and studies in your comment. Why am i required to?

Try him for crimes against humanity, crimes against America, lock him up and throw away the key is what we should do to him.

I'm confused... is not being familiar with hurricane meteorology a crime against humanity or a crime against America?

That is a fair enough opinion. However, one must also realize that not everyone knows everything, and not everyone has the same strengths and weaknesses


Except Trump, according to Trump! that is why he gets piled on, but I agree, a lot of it is trivial stuff, and does diminish real problems.

It's too bad he can't just keep his head down and do the work without all the nonsense.

You're so sweet. I don't talk to you like that do I?
Do I get on here and tell everyone they are dumb?
No I do not. But it seems that its okay for you all to say that to me.
Good thing I dont take what you say to heart.

Yeah, self-depreciation is definitely not one of Trump's talents.

I guess it doesn't bother me because I have seen so many politicians doing the same thing over the years, just using a slightly less forceful manner. Witness Nancy Pelosi, the "Master Legislator" who thinks the border issue can be solved by mowing the grass. I honestly cannot think of a single politician who doesn't toot their own horn whenever possible. Most just use different language to do it.

To be honest, Trump's use of vernacular and crude language is somewhat of a breath of fresh air for me. At least he comes across as more human and less elitist, to me anyway. I know Terry above mentioned he wants someone "better than himself," but that places us the people in the position of being inferior, and I don't like inferior. I want someone who will keep their word, do a good job, and get results. I do not want an overlord.

I'll admit I feel somewhat betrayed by Trump's primary detractors as well. I opposed Obama, but I opposed McCain more. When it came time to cast a vote, I voted for Obama. Skin color never played a role in my decision; policy and expectations did. There were times, not many but some, when I agreed with Obama's policies and openly said so... but when Obama started talking policies that I disagreed with, I spoke out... and was immediately branded a "racist." Never during that whole 8 years did I suggest that those who voted for or supported him should be harmed in any way.

Now someone I do support gets in office through a free and fair election. Do I get the same treatment I gave others under Obama? No! I am disparaged every day for my support of the man, and in some areas of the country would likely be concerned for my and my family's safety! I mean, really... I laugh at AOC, I make jokes about Pelosi, but I don't wish evil on either. I don't care about Obama any more; he went away. I wouldn't care about Hillary any more if she would just go away and stay there. That is opposed to those who laugh at Trump, as I am certain many do wish evil on him (some by their own admission) and his supporters. Look at my post just above: someone wants Trump locked up for "crimes against humanity" and can't even say what those crimes are! So I become quite concerned about everything he does or says being misconstrued and demonized.

Truth does not depend on who says it or how they say it. Truth depends on truth. Nothing more.

Nice catch, you are a better observer than me
I never really look at the locations, the timestamp on my end said 12:20.

Anyway, many of us are here at odd times.

All in the eye of the beholder, it's all good. I do think Pelosi should mosey on into retirement.

Fair enough, I understand where you're coming from. For me, it's a bit much, but again, in the eye of the beholder.

Obamas 1st go at it was an interesting time, I think there really was a feeling of hope and change..a bit of a let down for sure. The 2nd term was a write off. I commend the concept of health care for everyone, but it was doomed from the start without first burning the whole system down.

The racist word has been thrown around way too much, especially as of late, it diminishes the real deal. There were times it rang true though.

I have never seen things more divided, in my time anyway..I have no doubt, it has been so in the past. I'm sure the civil rights movement, and Vietnam war era were just as intense.

AOC will learn as she goes, I find her a bit over the top..but I'm sure she believes what she says. People here mock her like Trump gets mocked, tit for tat, or cause and effect.

I agree Hillary needs to fade away into the night..tbh, I only hear about her on ATS.

I'm with you on how wrong it is to wish harm on anyone..not good karma.

I do understand why he won..I think he has done some good things, some things that trouble me, a lot of others as well. The environmental stuff, the trade stuff, he has given the finger to Allies, while carrying on with SA..difficult situation I know.

If he toned it down, he would have a smoother run I'm sure..I guess time will tell how it all works out.

Sleepy time for me..it's late o clock!


Have a good night.

on anything


On anything. However there is noticeable grumbling whenever there is even a whiff of him mentioning any form or gun control. Myself, I don't thing he is ever serious about those statements, he's just tossing out a comment here or there to quell the brunt of calls for gun control during any of these mass shootings.

So trump said something dumb? The fact you react like thats news is strange. Does anyone really care? Considering he's running against a socialist, a liar, and a former Vice President Gaff if this is the worst to discuss he looks pretty strong.

Are we really going there? Nancy Pelosi doesn't know where she is or what year it is most of the time, she's referenced President Bush more times than I can count. Joe Biden can't recall anything with any accuracy. We can keep going.

Trump says a lot of dumb things. He may actually be a retard. I'd still support him over about any liberal.

I will definitely agree on Pelosi... and I will extend that to Biden. Pelosi I believe has a serious drinking problem and Biden... let's just say I think I know what the problem is and I wish him well, away from office, to avoid drama.

A great many of our politicians are well past retirement time IMO.


Fair enough, I understand where you're coming from. For me, it's a bit much, but again, in the eye of the beholder.

I really can't fault anyone for feeling that Trump's use of crude language is a bit over the top. Sometimes it is for me as well. But I also like the idea that I can pull up the web anytime, day or night, and know what the President is thinking straight from the horse's mouth. Transparency has its pros and cons, much like anything else.


Obamas 1st go at it was an interesting time, I think there really was a feeling of hope and change..a bit of a let down for sure. The 2nd term was a write off. I commend the concept of health care for everyone, but it was doomed from the start without first burning the whole system down.

I had hope for him at the very first... just didn't take very long to fade once he started enacting policy. I have always said, after an election is decided, "The people have spoken. Let's see what kind of choice they made." In other words, once the election is over, regardless if I supported the winner or not, I would wipe the slate clean and give the winner the benefit of the doubt. That is the proper way to conduct oneself in a civilized society. But of course, that never happened with Trump, and that lack of civilization from his detractors only makes me want to return the favor in the future. That's assuming a Democrat is ever elected President again. I know it will take a long, long time for the association with this current crop of nincompoops to fade from my memory.


The racist word has been thrown around way too much, especially as of late, it diminishes the real deal. There were times it rang true though.

The few times it rang true, it didn't ring loud. That's the whole problem. I grew up just after the Civil rights struggle in the heart of the Deep South. I know well what racism is. The summer between my 1st and 2nd grade year in school, the old school building burned down. Rumor was that it was arson, because the school had just been integrated. I remember road signs on state highways, main drags mind you, with racial slurs and warning of what would happen if caught after sundown. They were not state erected or officially state-sanctioned, but they stayed in place for decades (and were observed).

It burns me up inside when I hear today's fools trying to turn everything into racism. They are the true racists, and their goal is obvious to me: When everyone is a racist, no one will be.


AOC will learn as she goes, I find her a bit over the top..but I'm sure she believes what she says.

I'm sure she does as well. I expected some naivety at first and was willing to overlook it (after having a good-natured chuckle, of course). The real problem is the the news has brought her to the forefront of the DNC and Pelosi has essentially handed her and her "Squad" the reins of power. That is a serious red flag for the party. AOC should have been congratulated for her win and allowed to fade into the background while she learned the ropes, but it is far, far too late for that now. She is the face of the DNC, and if she loses in 2020 (she seemingly has an actual challenger this time: a young black woman who is making a lot of sense) she will forever be the face of the failed Democratic Party.

She dances real goodly, though.


Have a good night.

You as well. This has been a wonderful conversation between us so far, and I have truly enjoyed it.

And if the forecast doesn't fit your narrative, just add a little extra to the weather map so that it agrees with you.
www.cbsnews.com...


President Trump is claiming ignorance after he held up a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration map that appeared to have been altered with a black pen to show a projection of Hurricane Dorian possibly striking Alabama. The unexplained map appeared during an Oval Office briefing on Wednesday and the hurricane comes after Mr. Trump tweeted Sunday that Alabamians were in danger from Dorian. The map was dated August 29.
