Many of the people who vote for Republicans have no health insurance--and if they have a major health problem will be forced into bankruptcy. But they seem not to understand that when they vote for Republicans they are voting against their own economic interests.

  You must be talking about someone else.  Never cared any about gay marriage.  Only point on marriage I make is that Hetros ruined marriage as an institution back in the 50s and 60s.  51% divorce rate.  Half that remain together wish they would have gotten a divorce.  That means less than 25% success rate.  That is not even a good batting average.  Really the only question to gays is "Why would you care?"  I get that gays believe it is a right, so they care for that reason.  Anyway, to me those decisions already played out and are in the rearview.  I also do not get why Hetros even care, it is not like gays can sully the fine reputation of the institution of marriage.

Socialism is rejected because it has killed 100s of millions in the last 150 years alone.  It is a failed system everywhere it has been tried.

Corporations have been really great to me.  They have paid for my house.  Paid for my cars.  Paid for my kids college. Allowed me to travel and visit my kids in college and when they play in remote locations.  Allowed me to invest.  Allowed me to take equity in kind for sweat. 

I have started corporations.  It is very damn hard.  The often quoted 80% failure rate is very real.  You have to risk capital, and when it goes under, it stings, mightily.  In addition to having worked 100-120 hour weeks for 2 years, it will leave a huge hole in your wallet.  Then you have some employee who joins your finally successful startup, works there 2 months and comes in demanding this and that, telling you how you did not build the company.  

Turns out a job is your number one path to any kind of self determination.  Once you have a job, then it becomes all about your spending.  Spend less than you make, always.  This will put you on the upside of the curve of life.  Where you are investing, people are borrowing from you, and making payments to you.  When you are making payments to others, you are sharing your earnings potential with them. Much better to be on the receiving end of payments.   

Don' t be a loser like Kazoo/Dui/freshy.  The never made enough, spent to much and now are bitter and unhappy, even angry.  They have to sit around and hope a vote turns their way so the government doles out a small pittance to them.

I am quite sure they are used to showing up, having a casual breakfast, some idle chit chat.

Not this time.  Trump rips into NATO.  All valid points, well laid out, on how the American taxpayer is getting a raw deal from the Europeans.

You guys are morons who are being played by an American traitor--Trump--who is more loyal to Putin--than our longtime allies. Have you wondered why Trump is making SUCH a big deal about the defense spending of our European allies. Our allies have committed to spending more--and yet Trump keeps up this harangue. Why? It's not about the money: He's doing what Putin wants him to do. Putin hates NATO, which helps to contain and constrain his authoritarian country. You freakin' rednecks are too stupid to see what is going on here. Trump plays you saps...like saps. Look at you--pretending to hate the FBI because Trump criticizes the FBI; pretending to dislike our most important allies because our traitorous a-hole president has been compromised by a dictator/ex-KGB murderous thug. And you wonder why coastal elites call you rubes. Because you are....I'm embarrassed to associate with such idiots.

I know Kazoo's kind.  He wouldn't last ten seconds.  Those rubes and rednecks he makes fun of are the ones who make things and grow things in this country.  Kazoo knows nothing of blisters, hard work, what it is like to walk into a factory where you can see the air, ...  When I was a machinist and when I worked in a foundry, I would have to do the "farmer's blow" several times after clearing the building.  When I worked in the one foundry, my wife fixed a place on the back porch for me to take my clothes off since they reeks so badly of "no bake" that she couldn't stand the smell and wouldn't let those clothes come inside until she hosed them off.  Kazoo knows nothing of that.  In fact, all of those qualities he admires reek of white guilt and and hatred of all of what most of us experience.  I'd like to see Kazoo walk two blocks in the neighborhood I grew up in.  He'd have given up his wallet in the first block and anything else those thugs wanted by the second block.

You might be the most brainwashed of all of the socialist on this site.  When Trump went after Merkle today and chastised her for making a special deal with Putin and Russia for a secret natural gas pipeline I suppose he was making friends with Putin.  What a pud!

Trump is corrupt, mentally ill and a dupe of Russian and Putin. He's got to be the most absurd wanker in a leadership position in the history of this country. A uncivil man liked by those who are uneducated and somewhat uncivil themselves. Everyone else is utterly appalled--every day--but his rants and his insults and his non-stop idiocy. A massive embarrassment--and, let me repeat, completely corrupt. Everybody knows he's corrupt--he doesn't even try to hide it--but the rubes try to look away and pretend other people and other institutions must be the problem. Oh, if only everyone had a brain and a modicum of integrity.....And the Republican Party has become utterly corrupt too--so determined to wrest power from the Democrats that they cheat and lie about everything. Spent years spewing propaganda and lies about Clinton--the fake Benghazi scandal; the fake email scandal. This is the modern GOP--gerrymandering, propaganda, stealing Supreme Court picks. Look at the 2000 election--stolen when conservatives on the Supreme Court refused to allow a recount in Florida. Why? Rampant corruption among conservatives. 

Meanwhile, here's even more on how Russians has used fake news twitter accounts to play the rubes. Of course, there are conservative groups in America that have been doing this as well--creating fake news organization accounts to spread their BS. This is the state of conservatism in America these days. "Polls by Kaiser, Pew, Reuters, Politico, and Gallup [have] found that an overwhelming majority of Americans think that access to abortion — at the least under certain circumstances — should not be outlawed." And yet we have a small minority of undemocratic conservative crazies who want to reverse Roe v. Wade. It all shows how completely undemocratic conservatives have become. Look at all the dark-money conservative groups operating now....Notice how the Koch Brothers and the Mercers and all the other wealthy conservative crazies try to operate in secret, anonymously, afraid to defend their extremist positions in public. Pathetic.

Are you ready yet to admit your guy is a flaming idiot?  He made a total fool of himself - and US - at the NATO summit.  He put his ignorance on full display and put our democracy at risk.  A new poll shows that over 40% of Germans now want all US forces out of their country.  Do you realize the gravity of that? 

Wake up, Reps.  This man is seriously impaired.

seriously.  Muh Russia?  We went over this.  
Trump blasts Germany for Russia Pipeline.  That is directly against Putins' desires.

Europe better wake up and realize that they have been living off the backs of Americans for a lot of years.  NATO funding, Defense Spending and Tariffs.  It is not ok. Time for them to get the f' off our hind teets and carry their part of the load.

From Slate - still think this guy isn't unhinged????


For all that Donald Trump is often described as “erratic” or “unpredictable,” the basic worldview underlying his foreign policy is pretty consistent and easy to understand: He doesn’t think the U.S. should be expending resources on any initiative that he believes “helps other countries a hell of a lot more than it helps us,” as he once said in reference to U.S. troop deployments in the Middle East. Don’t talk to him about international stability or global order. Other countries’ conflicts are not our problem, and there’s little we can do to solve them anyway.

It’s this thinking that guides his opposition to maintaining U.S. troops and military exercises in South Korea and continuing combat operations in Syria and Afghanistan. To this end, the president has spent the week so far hammering other members of NATO for spending too little on defense and free-riding on U.S. security guarantees. Trump probably doesn’t actually care that much about the specific 2 percent spending target that’s become such a flashpoint, but it’s a useful cudgel to bash an alliance that, in Trump’s view, “helps them a lot more than it helps us.”

So it was a little mind-blowing to hear Trump end his press conference in Brussels this morning by contradicting all of that. The answer came in response to what was, in fairness, a somewhat difficult-to-understand question from a Tunisian journalist about what the U.S. could do to help resolve conflicts in North Africa. Trump seemed to take it as a question about “Africa” as a whole (my emphasis):

We are looking for peace. Africa, as you know, is on our very strong list. But we are looking for peace. We want peace all over. We want to solve problems. We’re looking for peace. Africa right now has got problems that few people would understand. They have things going on there that nobody could believe in this room. If you see, some of the things I see through intelligence, what’s going on in Africa, it is so sad and so vicious and violent. And we want peace. We want peace for Africa. We want peace all over the world. That’s my number one goal, peace all over the world. And we’re building up a tremendous military because I really believe through strength you get peace. But, we’re going to have a military like we have never had before. We have given out orders for, you know, the best fighter jets in the world. The best ships, the best everything. But, hopefully we will never have to use them. That would be a dream. To buy the best stuff, to have the best stuff, to have the best equipment in the world, and to never have to use it would be a really great part of my dream.

Put aside for the moment that the president, who described some African nations as “sh!thole countries” in January, has reduced an entire highly diverse and varied continent to a monolith of violence and despair. (And what “very strong list” is he talking about?) What jumps out here is that Trump has spent the entire past week repeatedly arguing that the U.S. is spending too much on countries that should be helping themselves, and is now saying that the purpose of having a strong U.S. military is to “solve problems” and bring peace to the “vicious and violent” conflicts of Africa. Sending the military overseas to solve conflicts is precisely what he has repeatedly argued the U.S. should not be doing anymore.

Perhaps Trump was just ad-libbing at the end of a long press conference following a long meeting. Regardless, if this becomes a regular feature of his rhetoric, nothing coming from him will make any sense anymore.
