How about our fearless leader be the first into battle?

He cowardly got himself out of one stupid war in Vietnam, he owes his country the same he's going to expect of those in our military.
4  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Bill Requiring Women to Register for the Draft Passes Senate on: Today at 10:31:49 am
There should be no draft.

But since there will always be old, rich, white men in power who have never fought a day in their lives for anything but are all too willing to send our kids off to war...the draft will never go away.

And since it will never go away, it shouldn't single out only one sex.
5  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Donald Trump brags that he got highest ratings since 9/11 on: April 24, 2017, 09:58:28 am
But he's said and done SOOOO much horrible sh**t, why focus any attention at all on something so clearly NOT true at just a glance?

Well, everything else doesn't bother his followers, so I'm grasping at straws?

But he does sort of allude to having higher ratings, so while it's not directly saying that outright, it is hinting at it.
No, he said "since".  He wasn't hinting at anything.  Yeah, it's a low class move to bring up 9/11 when you're bragging about something, but he didn't say his ratings were higher and he didn't hint at it either.  The Independent UK read that into it and you ran with it.  It's not like he said he was "more popular than Jesus right now" or something.

I won't argue about interpretations but saying "I'm more popular than Jesus" is something I can totally believe Donald Trump would say--and his supporters would eat it up no doubt.

I'm personally pro-life, but I recognize that it's a complex issue and one that, as a male, my opinion on it is not as valid as someone of the opposite sex. Also without legal abortions, the procedure would still be performed, only in extremely unsafe conditions. So it must remain legal.

One of the things that bothers me most about this is that his supporters will either think he's right or just not care.

Now if Obama or Hillary had something something like this...."LOCK THEM UP!"

Because nothing says patriotism like saying you're more popular than one of our nation's greatest tragedies.

Seriously though, when did Republicans suddenly become the unpatriotic party? Maybe they always were and I just never noticed it. Not to say Democrats weren't patriotic, but that was one of the GOPs things. No more can they claim they're a party of patriots.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/donald-trump-9-11-approval-ratings-interview-who-with-first-100-days-us-president-world-trade-center-a7698516.html

Donald Trump boasted that his “ratings” were higher than broadcasts of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in an interview about his first 100 days in the White House.

In an interview with the Associated Press, the President railed against the “fake media”, former rival Hillary Clinton and the election during which he lost the popular vote.

When asked if he thought he had changed how people vote, Mr Trump pointed to his “very high ratings”, claiming they increased by two or three times when he appeared on the Sunday morning shows.

He highlighted Chris Wallace’s Fox News show.

“It had 9.2 million people. It’s the highest they’ve ever had. On any, on air, [CBS’ John] Dickerson had 5.2 million people,” he said.

“It’s the highest for ‘Face the Nation’ or as I call it, ‘Deface the Nation’. It’s the highest for ‘Deface the Nation’ since the World Trade Center. Since the World Trade Center came down. It’s a tremendous advantage.”

Who else would their be to blame?

He was and is completely unprepared for a job he probably never really wanted.

Next thing you know they're going to accuse the president himself of sexual harassment! It's a witch hunt against conservatives!

White Christian America is under direct assault from the lib-tards!
13  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Merkel had to teach Trump how EU trade works 11 times on: April 23, 2017, 08:18:16 am
He's never had to learn or work hard at anything before because his entire life has just been handed to him. I imagine (hope) that as he learns more about the actual world around him (and that it doesn't revolve around him) that he'll focus a little more on bettering it and not just go for another round of golf like he's on a four year vacation from life.
14  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Book "Shattered" - Inside stories of Hillary's campaign on: April 21, 2017, 09:21:55 am
I'm interested in reading it, but my emotions about that night are still pretty raw. There were definitely problems with the candidate and her campaign, but that in no way a justifies electing an outright authoritarian and demagogue to the White House.

Eventually, Trump voters will see this beyond strict party ID and ideology: he is and always has been wrong for our country, and better suited for a dictatorship.

Jeez. Calm down. He's not THAT bad.

He got caught on a hot mic bragging about raping women

Well, not raping. Just sexually assaulting a married woman. As she was walking towards him. I can't believe that's a distinction that must be made and I also can't believe how quickly Republicans have forgiven it. Partisanship is a pretty sad thing.

Incorrect.

He was bragging about how being famous allowed him to get laid. 11 years ago. When he told Billy Bush "They let me do it because I'm famous", sure...it was uncouth, but letting him do it implies "consent".

If Trump walked on water, you liberals would say he couldn't swim.

Before he said that they let him do anything he also said "I don't even wait" which implies that he was not asking for consent.

I think the generalization of Trump is ridiculous coming from liberals who always say "Don't generalize". He attacks Rosie O'Donnell. That doesn't mean he attacks "women". He attacks the Khan father. That doesn't mean he attacks "Gold star families".

If he yelled at one crazy liberal employee of a Wal-Mart, would that mean "Donald Trump yells at Wal-Mart employee(S)?" plural? No. He yelled at one.

"I moved on her. I tried, and I failed." If he was a "rapist" he wouldn't be saying how he "failed". You guys are ridiculous. This is why you lose elections.

This is why feminists always scream about all the rapes that go unpunished. Because under the actual law, they are not actual rapes.

I think that you (and other conservatives) have let Trump off the hook just goes to show how completely hypocritical you all are, considering Bill Clinton is often deemed a rapist by you lot.

If a tape of Hillary had been leaked saying something along the lines of, "I just walk right up and immediately grab their dicks, I don't even wait," what would your response be?  I would bet you a lot of money she would have been shamed much more than Trump ever was over his comments.

Regarding women, it was never just Rosie O'Donnell that Adolf talked badly about. If you don't already know that, then you haven't paid any serious attention at all during the last few years (even though his statements go back much further, I can't fault you for not knowing about them when he wasn't campaigning for prez).

If a Democratic presidential candidate said any of the following about women, how do you think conservatives would react?

"You're disgusting." (said to a breastfeeding mother)

"If ____ can't satisfy her husband, what makes her think she can satisfy America?"

"26,000 unreported sexual assults in the military-only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?"

"Look at that face. Would anybody vote for that?" (regarding a female contender)

"Yeah, she’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father..."

"If _____ weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her."

"Now, somebody who a lot of people don’t give credit to but in actuality is really beautiful is Paris Hilton. I’ve known Paris Hilton from the time she’s 12. Her parents are friends of mine, and the first time I saw her she walked into a room and I said, ‘Who the hell is that?'"

"It must be a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees."

"It doesn't really matter what (they) write as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of a**."

"Wonderful looking while on the ice but up close and personal, she could only be described as attractive if you like a woman with a bad complexion who is built like a linebacker."

"You have to treat em like sh**." (regarding women)

"I have days where, if I come home — and I don't want to sound too much like a chauvinist, but when I come home and dinner's not ready, I go through the roof."

"I think that putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing."

"There are basically three types of women and reactions. One is the good woman who very much loves her future husband, solely for himself, but refuses to sign the agreement on principle. I fully understand this, but the man should take a pass anyway and find someone else. The other is the calculating woman who refuses to sign the prenuptial agreement because she is expecting to take advantage of the poor, unsuspecting sucker she’s got in her grasp. There is also the woman who will openly and quickly sign a prenuptial agreement in order to make a quick hit and take the money given to her."

I guarantee you that if a Democratic presidential candidate said even just one of those things, you would flip your lid (and rightfully so).

Wisconsin and Pennsylvania are now deep red states. Democrats have a better chance at winning Alabama at this point. Trump is gonna win in a 1972 landslide in 2020; time to give up.

Haha!

Wait, that was a joke, right?
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Could the following states flip, and how? on: April 18, 2017, 05:28:29 pm
A lot of things about Trump's victory has pissed me off but up there is that Trump wasn't racist but "democrats were racist aganist white men" give me a break Trump is trying to freakin ban a religion but Hillary saying "basket of deplorables" was just going too far

Yep.

Which is why she was 100% right; they are all deplorables.

A true patriot.

Very much unlike the sorry excuse for a leader we have now.
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Could the following states flip, and how? on: April 15, 2017, 06:35:31 pm
Democrats are treating white people the same way they treated black people back in the 1950s and 1960s. Democrats treat white people horribly and I'm sorry but democrats aren't going to get anymore than 40 percent of the white vote at the national level especially not the white working class voters. That's a solid republican voter block

Yea, because white men are so disadvantaged in our society..........

Calm down, dude.
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Republicans Offended By Pepsi Commercial on: April 15, 2017, 06:33:18 pm
I don't know about this ad, but what I do know is that Republicans are less offended by somebody grabbing pussy against a woman's will than they are about two men getting married.
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Tennessee Republican Gov. Haslam proposes free tuition free community college on: April 14, 2017, 01:56:16 pm
But the "there's no such thing as free" argument is spat out every time a Democrat proposes this.

I'm waiting to hear his fellow Repulicans call him a socialist.

Or we could just...you know...give credit where credit is due.

When was the last time a Republican gave credit where it was due?

The voters in his district will likely not care.
24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: US drops 'largest non-nuclear bomb' in Afghanistan in area populated by Isis on: April 14, 2017, 07:12:30 am
Per AP, 36 IS fighters were killed, and several IS caves and ammunition caches were destroyed.

No civilian casualties.

36 fighters killed.

176 new fighters recruited.

This isn't how you fight terrorism.
25  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: North Korea says it 'will go to war' if Trump keeps on provoking on: April 14, 2017, 05:38:41 am
No one takes what North Korea says seriously anymore.

Trump takes things the National Enquirer says seriously; I think he'd believe anything that comes from North Korea too.

And one thing is certain: if he keeps bombing away things to bring up his approval rating, he will eventually spread our forces too thin. We can't (and shouldn't) be the world police.
