With reports of on then off action in response to the downing of a US drone by Iran, it’s apparent it’s going to take a few more buckets of chicken and cheeseburgers before Trump’s gut feeling is set. The GOP will explain military action was unavoidable if it comes to that., though it would have been avoided had Trump not withdrawn the US from the nuclear deal. But that’s a lie for another day.

Yes it’s Trump’s fault the drone was shot down! If he was not a racist and Islamophobe it certainly wouldn’t have happened!

Wait, Trump could be lying about the drone strike …and the moon landing too. He is just trying to start another war. I heard that on CNN and The NY Times. It must be true…

The mind is a terrible thing to waste…

Dave Bearse

I didn’t say the drone downing was Trump’s fault. It had nothing to do with his racism or Islamophobic pandering. You must be a hardworking Georgian.

Trump doesn’t want to start another war, but him doing so is a significant risk given his instability, and the sycophants and war-mongerers about him. Necons are now making the case the Iranian regime is so fragile the US military could depose it—who needs allies anyway. Yeah, they’ve really thought this through.

Are insults enough of a campaign strategy to win for Trump’s opposition? Serious question. Where is the 2019 version of serious Democrat politicians like Sam Nunn or Bill Bradley? And the major insult of “racism” is getting ready to tag Biden if the Democrats aren’t careful. He’s gonna be “Trent Lott-ed” if this plays out like it appears it might. I am looking forward to next weekend’s Democrat debates. Aside from Biden not one has a chance.

Is there any economic message from the democrats? The only thing anyone has heard is we will tax you to death and you are going to like it.

Who wants that? How on earth can that win?

Insults? It’s the style of the Republican head of government, it being necessary to communicate with conservatives in a style they know and understand.

It’s tough to say anything complimentary about Trump calling off a retaliatory military strike in response to the drone downing beyond Trump noting 150 lives was not proportional, because of his instability, narcissism and serial lying. Who calls off an attack 10 minutes beforehand with planes in the air? Trump said he didn’t order plan preparation, but planes were in the air when he ordered it stopped? Trump stopped it after asking how many casualties were anticipated—like nobody but a stable genius would have thought of that—and the military hadn’t already told him. Trump has turned the US into a… Read more »

Trump’s MO: create fake crisis – threaten action over fake crisis – claim negotiation victory – Claim non-existent, fake crisis solved. (footnote for any Trump crisis: review Trump’s tweets and you will find Trump lambasted Obama, Dems, Rosie O’Donnell etal for taking the same action Trump does now)

Democrats told us that there was no crisis at the border. Isn’t that a colossal lie?

Is Trump finally addressing 40 years of Chinese cheating a made up problem? How about NATO not paying their bills? The democrats said so.

Was having a tax code that pushed jobs ovrerseas for decades a made up problem? Do liberals have any credibility on so many topics? Shouldn’t they thank Trump for addressing these problems?

NoParty4Me

It wasn’t one party that claimed there was no crisis at the border. Many reality based military, Security, state, local officials and other government and non-gov employees and people “with-a clue” said this. You Russian trolls need to stop fixating on “party-this-party-that” trolling. It’s not even credible.

Democrats told us that there was no crisis at the border. Isn’t that a colossal lie? At the time Trump took office border crossings were at their lowest levels in decades. There was and is no “crisis” at the Southern border. Is Trump finally addressing 40 years of Chinese cheating a made up problem? How’s he doing that exactly? By raising taxes on middle-class US consumers? By increasing our deficit so we become further indebted to China? By pulling out of a trade agreement that would have pulled Asian markets closer to the US and instituted stronger IP protections throughout… Read more »

So I guess you are saying there is no border problem…really? Do nothing. 2. So don’t do anything about China? Don’t upgrade 30 year old trade deals…they are all just fine thank you. Lower corporate taxes in the US encourages businesses to stay here. You know why do so many businesses flee high tax liberal states? You pick the industry.

So I guess you are saying there is no border problem…really Precisely. Most illegal immigrants are the results of visa overstays, not folks walking across the Arizona desert. A border wall won’t stop that. The vast majority of illegal drugs coming from Mexico/Central America enter the US through legal points of entry in trucks, a border wall won’t stop that. A real crackdown on “illegal immigration” would involve significant fines and criminal penalties against employers who hire undocumented immigrants. But we won’t do that because US agriculture is heavily reliant on cheap immigrant labor. Heck, the President’s own golf clubs… Read more »

Are our liberals for Bernie’s new proposal of paying off all of the student loans? “FULLY PAID FOR” by a 2 trillion Wall St Tax?! Fully paid for by who? Whoever HE decides to tax… 2 wrongs make a right I guess if you follow this logic. Is this the winning new platform?

Well as a election tactic, the Santa model will fail. The student loan giveaway scheme will also fail. Thank God we still have a 25 year backup of folks who despise giveaways. So, push all of the freebies you want. People will see the hilarity and flock to Trump even more.

Grendalwald, I am confused. I thought you loved the student loan giveaway!! I cant wait to hear liberals come out and support this one!

Not quite the suffering from slavery ….What do you think the racial component is on that one? 90% White?! What will the minority community think of this pearl of a giveaway?! Another pearl.

Only to the extent of perception of her as an elitist. Elites will always rule. Orwell’s Animal House was one example. It’s only a matter of which elites rule. Numerous vacancies (no one that qualified by even the vary low bar of McConnell’s Senate) the general caliber of cabinet appointments reveal an overall low caliber elites. Trump is in office only because of circumstances of the time. Trump ideas are few, shallow and fixed. He’s subservient to those circumstances despite they have changed and are always changing. He’ll stick with them even though there are other circumstances that could get… Read more »

I think you mean Animal Farm. The moral of Animal House was that the elites will eventually get their comeuppance at the hands of a band of misfits that loves to party.

As for Clinton’s emails, they’re old news and I’d invite anyone who still gives a rip to explain why we shouldn’t be launching criminal probes of Jared and Ivanka’s email and text practices.

And we can thank the history of the factory in Camden, SC and the 20 year effort in expanding the Port of Savannah. It should be noted that some of these jobs had already been announce for the warehouse last year. Haier Group purchased Roper in 2016 with the plan to expand along the Savannah logistic corridors.

Wow, I didn’t realize Boeing, United Technologies, Lockheed, etc. are all liberals. You do realize of course that “defense” gets the majority of our tax money. Mostly being used as an “offense” in support of other industries, like oil. Lately blowing even more cash trying to foment a war on behalf of Jared’s friends, the actual instigators of 9/11, the Saudis. Damn those liberals.

I am sure they would rather get more free food stamps and Obama phones instead of all of these jobs!

Trump had it right! What do you folks have to lose? What have these clueless socialist clowns done to help improve anyone’s lives?

Clint Eastwood was right too. We would have been better off electing an empty chair rather than have all of the new taxes, regulations, preachings and intrusions.

The thanks is only due to wrangling by the PSC. “These credits are a result of the reduction in Georgia Power’s federal corporate tax rate from 35% down to 21%” “The typical residential customer using an average of 1,000 kilowatt-hours per month would receive a credit of approximately $18 on their June Georgia Power bill”. Somehow I’m not ‘feeling’ an equally 14% refund as a one time credit.

Two corroborating witnesses. An alleged perpetrator with a long (and admitted) history of sexual assault. An alleged perpetrator already lying about his degree of contact with the accuser (hard to say “I don’t know her” and “I never met her” when there are multiple photos of y’all together). Seems like it’s worth investigating.

By the way, are you just a new screen name for the guy that was on here saying that Roy Moore didn’t do anything wrong and the teenage girls asked for it?
