Let's throw another log on the fire. Let's turn this into a bon fire!

Of Course the Trump's are trying to raid the coffers on their way out!


Like the Clintons and the Obama's. It's a time honored tradition.


Except Trump is losing millions since he took the position.



well sure, but thats is because he is greedy, it has to be true the left said so.......


The level of cognitive dissonance is amazing.

I predict this whole discussion will be entirely different by Christmas.



I honestly hope it doesn't take that long..

I am old, I don't have much time left, all I have is handfuls of money to keep me happy now, and a wife😲😂😂🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Stop being divisive.

You really should UNITE.


They don't understand that they are a part of #Resist.

I blame our Department of Education for that.

However, we as citizens should still attempt to educate the unfortunates....

~sigh~

I am in your boat!!!

I hope they straighten this crap out so my kids will have a chance though.

I do think that strides have been made to shake it up and hopefully make it better.

Well db, I'm not the one living in a country that is heading toward civil war, so if you're happy with the way it's going, have at it.

I have popcorn and beer and will watch that unfold from the comfort of my living room.

It amazes me.

They say, "Trump is so divisive."

Then they say, "I hate him, I will fight him to the death AND BEAT ANYONE WHO VOTED FOR HIM!"

smh

Although I didn't vote for trump and don't really trust him I have no problems with this.

I would rather this type of upfront money grab than the Obama and Clintons money grab style where they do a bunch of secret favors for lobbyist in the background. They come in worth a 1million and after office somehow end up worth 100 million+ and doing speechs for $100's or 1M and doing bogus book deals on books nobody are buying.

In your face screaming with spit spraying saying "You are THE PROBLEM!!! Just think like Democrats do or you are TEARING THE COUNTRY APART!!!"

It's a weird time in America.

I'm personally leaning towards your idea of throat punching our representatives who just outright lie and get away with it.

Adam Schiff... " I have incontrovertible proof in my possession that Trump colluded with the Russians to steal the election."

Citizen... "Where is the proof?"

Aam Schiff... "EErrmmm"...

Citizen... Throat Punch.

It would have to be televised, of course.

For the children.

Yea... Trump was naive enough to think that after the election, people would accept the results and go forward as a nation.


Trump, naive??
he ran the his whole campaign on divisiveness, 'I'd like to punch him in the face " material.
Elsewhere, he liked to, or rather, "didn't care", while hoping that he could kick people off their own land for his own purpose...AKA greed, and you want to tell me he is naive??

I don't think any Cherokee would appreciate that should it have been their homeland...would er, you?

Trump should be on the top of your list then.

But, be careful. You can threaten lots of people (Democrats), but if you threaten the president, even in sarcastic jest, you will be investigated to the bone by the Secret Service, be put on "No Fly" lists, among others, and have to pay big $$$$ to lawyers to restore your life.

You were ribbing me about my use of the English language earlier so I explained that for you.

Now I have to explain to you that I'm an American.

My cultural background is Cherokee and I was raised that way and am quite proud of it.

When I joined the American military I did not join as a Cherokee.

I joined as an American.

I live as an American.

I vote as an American.

I would assume at this point that you really don't understand the concept of being American at all.

But you're Irish, so I have to assume you really don't understand a lot about anything geopolitically.

You couldn't understand anything about colonization.

You REALLY wouldn't understand anything about sovereignty.

And you certainly wouldn't understand what it is to live in a free nation.

I should add that I don't have any animosity toward so-called "lobbyists." I'm sure you already know, but the term comes from the practice of hiring people to "hold a place in line" in the lobby before attendance to a public hearing on a given matter. A "lobbyist" is inherently democratic, in a capitalist society. I happen to believe that capitalism is better than other proposed economic systems, and I feel that democracy is better than other proposed political systems. I think lobbyists are a product of the least worst system we've managed to devise, given the circumstances. Those circumstances? Pride and greed, then secondarily lust, envy, and wrath, then lastly gluttony and sloth, in that order. No different than any other value system. Capitalism just doesn't put on pretenses about what people want. I think that honesty is to be commended.

A law represents the redistribution of rights from one class of people to another. I think that's an important definition. There's nothing inherently unjust about a law, even the worst ones ever passed, for instance Jim Crow laws, were "just" just by the mere fact of having been passed. We can have debates about natural law versus the law of man, I personally love those sorts of discussions, and that's probably something for another thread. My point here, in this thread, is that the passing of a law is inherently a socialist act. It is the redistribution of rights from the infringers of said law to the infringee. And NOBODY SANE thinks laws are a bad idea! Murderers infringe upon the rights of the infringee to breathe, for example.

Those old bastards who came up with the 10 Commandments(and let's face it, they probably died much younger on average than we do now) had a pretty good idea, and then the founders had another good idea(also to have died younger than we do now, on average) and now here we are! Young, dumb, and full of cum. Thinking we know better.

Relax.

Why intentionally divide it further though? The last thing we needed was a 4 Chan level Twitter troll in the white house. The last time this country was united was in the aftermath of 9-11 and even then they used our emotions to get in to mindless wars with Afghanistan and Iraq.

I don't think like you though.

Thank the Gods for that...

I don't think I could handle the whole "bitter and angry because my Queen didn't get crowned" thing.

This isn't about me. I'm not the one fantasizing about "throat punching" my political adversaries, or fantasizing about Trump entering the "Church of Fake News" and massacring his political enemies.

I am against Trump awarding a no competition federal contract to himself, forcing foreign leaders to pay him to convene for a global conference.

Quoted for Truth.

~Applause~

You (or you and I) should make a thread on the idea of passing a law that states that any monies generated because of position in the Federal Government should be forfeit to the Treasury.

Take it out of the Mud Pit, as it were.

Because you have a really good idea and it shouldn't be wasted in this thread.

I'll PM you tomorrow and we can talk about it, if you wish.

It's an excellent topic!
