1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who, at this point, is more pathetic? on: May 03, 2016, 04:57:49 am
Man this forum has become mean-spirited.


They're public figures and I don't think only mean spirited people would describe Ted Cruz's continuing campaign as 'pathetic,'

Jeb Bush may be a little unfair because he's pretty much stayed out of the media since dropping out, but he did run one of the most pathetic Presidential campaigns I've seen in a number of years. 

First of all, I don't think Jeb was pathetic. He ran a solid campaign but this was definitely the wrong year for it. A successful two-term governor with a solid record of achievements who was more moderate in tone. What the hell else do you want? He did well in several debates, and had good money behind him. It just was not his year.

So what? Let's belittle him and call him pathetic? This forum has become very cynical and mean-spirited. You think Trump is bad...jeez...

Michael Bloomberg ruffled some sjw feathers in his University of Michigan commencement speech.  He criticized the idea of "safe spaces" and "microaggressions" and was booed by a good portion of the audience.  Who boos as a commencement speech anyway?  Tacky.

Ugh, don't you get it? They don't care about freedom of speech.

See, growing up in the 90s, I remember seeing liberals like this in history books:


They have grown angry and violent. No longer the peace and love of the 60s.

As someone who supported Rubio and voted for Kasich, I'd like this to be effectively over tomorrow night.

I was speaking the other day to a woman I know who liked Sanders. She's in the whole "Both sides are corrupt" camp.

It's kinda good news for someone like me. Either we get a President Hillary Clinton who gets elected in spite of all her flaws and goes into an electoral victory without much "emotional investment" in her (IE Jimmy Carter, Bush 41) and then runs for re-election in 2020 for a fourth straight Democratic term in her mid-70s. She is also quite more of a neo-con in many ways than Trump is, so I would feel confident she'd blow the crap outta enemies and I accept she had to flip-flop on positions to please the looney Democratic base. Her votes for the Iraq War, her husband's anger at the BLM movement, all illustrate this.

OR...we get President Donald Trump.

Either way, at the end of the day, I guess I'll be content.

Saying you want to follow the law and keep people from coming across the border unless they do it legally is not racist. Any single way you slice it.

What about saying the majority of immigrants are rapists? Is that racist enough for you?

Statistics have shown that immigrants are much less likely to commit crimes than native-born citizens.

Reaganfan keeps avoiding this fact.
He doesn't want to touch it, because the truth hurts. The issue is beyond just "following the law and keeping people from coming across the border." trump said more than that !
It's easier for people who support trump, to just put on their blinders and cover their ears to some of what Little-Hands-Drumpf-Fuhrer said, and just accept and intake what they like most.
Pure mental denial.

I'm not avoiding the fact. First of all, most Republicans support some path to citizenship. So your argument that all Republicans wanna keep Mexicans out is ridiculously flawed.

The fact is you liberals believe in freedom of Speech, unless you disagree with it. That doesn't make it illegal. You can't outlaw vague opinions. Racism, offensiveness, they're all opinions. I find things offensive you might not. We can't outlaw them.

I think the sad truth for me is...I don't really care. Do I care of my President is pro-gay marriage or against it? Not really. Do I care if my President wants to build a wall or create a pathway to citizenship? Not really. (After all, I'd vote for Jeb as fast as I'd vote for Trump) Do I care about the color of my Presidents skin? No, I really could care less. I'd vote for Condi Rice should she be the GOP nominee.

It's sad when in 2016 America, REAGANFAN is the open-minded one.

I think there are alot of stupid people in America who do not understand our laws.

Being a racist - Not illegal
Being offensive - Not illegal
Controversial statements - Not illegal
Emotional assault - Not illegal
Jumping on police cars - Illegal
Blocking traffic - Illegal
Physical assault - Illegal

Catch my drift? They are morons.

Sure, but wanting to deport 11 million people and revoke birthright citizenship smells an awful lot like ethnic cleansing.

That's your opinion. You have yours I have mine Trump has his. That's America. You cannot say, "Well...I FEEL that I'm right..therefore you can't speak." That's not America.

No. Racism has become something other than what it used to be. In other words, 40 years ago, I'd be considered pro-feminism. But the definitions keep getting so radical, at this point I'm considered anti-feminism.

Saying you want to follow the law and keep people from coming across the border unless they do it legally is not racist. Any single way you slice it.

Also, these protesters are more bark than bite. A few hundred at a rally in California. But the pro-Trump crowd was about 32,000 people. Who is the real crowd here?

"We don't believe Trump should speak because we feel he is offensive!" Good lord. I feel Bernie Sanders shouldn't speak because he offends me. What would make their being offended overrule my being offended?

FYI, in our country of laws, being offended is NOT AGAINST THE LAW!! It's not a crime to hurt feelings. But jumping on cars and blocking traffic is.

Here's the ironic thing...all these young liberals in college bitching about "white privilege", are probably in college because of what they believe is "white privilege".

Unbelievably sad. All these innocent victims all because liberal minded people don't want hurt feelings. They seem to forget that feels and emotions aren't legally relevant in society.
14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Clinton has released her first anti-Trump ad on: April 25, 2016, 09:02:28 pm
The big problem liberals are having is that everything they are fighting for, isn't really possible.

For example, their definition of racism, can never be solved, because so many of them can find racism in anything. Obviously we cannot get rid of everything, so according to their definition, we will never get rid of "racism".

Also, they seem to be prioritizing emotional thinking over rational thinking. For example, they would rather take the risks with transgender bathrooms rather than hurt the feelings of transgender people. But doesn't the risk outweigh the reward? If women are hurt by sexual predators, are a majority of those victims and their families going to care about if a transvestite feels better about themselves? If a handful of Syrian refugees are terrorists, doesn't the risk of thousands of dead Americans outweigh the reward of happy refugees? If someone breaks in your house with a knife in their hand and you blow their skull apart with a shotgun, is that homeowner gonna be proud he protected his home or upset that he killed someone looking for money? I think they are trying the impossible.

It's a risk/reward situation and liberals lack the intellect to make safe decisions, because they are in and of themselves, weak people blinded by emotion. Thus their fear of inanimate objects (firearms), fear of conflict (anti-war), fear of wealth, and their constant running to their Government nanny. 

What do you think more Americans will do tomorrow? Say something politically incorrect, or quote a Maya Angelou poem?

17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Clinton has released her first anti-Trump ad on: April 25, 2016, 06:54:51 am
Yawn. Nothing Trump said in that video would be terribly out of place in a conversation between friends, family members or coworkers in middle America. She'll need to do better than this to win the election.

Agree. For better or worse, politics aside, find me one average white person in the midwest who hasn't made similar politically incorrect statements.

Who do you think you'll find more of in Ohio or Indiana or Missouri or Florida? A person saying what Trump said, or quoting Maya Angelou poems? The disconnect in this country is astounding, regardless of which side you are on.
18  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Congress takes its first step toward killing the military draft on: April 25, 2016, 06:39:15 am
As a former member of the U.S. Air Force, I can say we have new technology and air power which is quite useful to the point to where I see the draft being obsolete. If needed in a situation like in WW2, where Roosevelt implemented it, it could always be used again in a dire situation.

Kasich is a rare example of an LBJ type pick that could actually help at the convention and help deliver Ohio. As a resident, I can legit say he is very well liked throughout the state. He actually would be a general election candidate who would make his homestate go from battleground to safe Kasich. I think he would have a positive effect.

I like the Tim Scott, idea, to be honest. I am all for reaching out to African Americans with solutions that could improve their situation in society. Progress doesn't have to always be liberal.

Sadly, there is no center in America, anymore. This is thanks to the voters in both parties.

When the voters in the Republican Party are holding rifles pretending it's 1776 and the voters in the Democratic Party are holding up pictures of Mao on Wall Street, there is no more room for centrists.

I don't understand why Democrats don't prepare impeachment. Or bills to create it.

You cannot impeach someone just because you disagree with their policies. This is why I roll my eyes at stupid conservatives who say "Impeach Obama!" No matter how much you disagree, no laws were broken. We have to stop this already.
