Hmm.... Why do I Feel that the Apparent Sarcasm in your Post here seems to Me to be Very Unamusing considering it Lacks a Pretext to Decipher in Normal/Speak Other than just yet Another Attack by Atheists and Agnostics to Any Peoples Faith Comrade Sarsacski > ?
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

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.
I know who I am and what I know.
I dont need you to validate me.
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.
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.
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.
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.
AOC will learn as she goes, I find her a bit over the top..but I'm sure she believes what she says.
Have a good night.
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.
