So the two of you can post what you want, I do not care; just do not pretend you are a superior contributor.
Thank you I will. I do not pretend to offer superior comments. I do offer superior contributions. Other than trying to define me, do you have anything you would like to contribute? Sticks and Stones my friend. I have had my share over the past two years tossed at me and I am still here.
I am not on the extreme left. I think that in the past 50-60 years some players have been able to amass a significant amount of newly created money. It just doesn't "trickle down" to the masses. That is the people who are filling up Trump's rallies and they have a right to feel like they were left behind.
The problem is he is not the solution and IMO he is an embarrassment to our country. I appears that his supporters will defend him no matter what he says. I'll never forget the time he boasted that his supporters were so loyal that he could shoot someone and they would still support him. What I don't understand is how easily people who I believe have common sense suspend their belief not matter what Trump says or does.
What I do not understand it what possible interest someone would have to create this poll other than as an internet troll. Maybe I am a troll on the other side of the bridge, but I don't have to reach back to the past as Trump seems to open mouth and insert his foot on an almost daily basis.
My problem is not with Republicans or Democrats. I certainly have no interest in going over an event that happened almost a year ago. Which leak mattered more? Did it matter at all is something political science majors can debate forever, but to what end? I don't like the fact that 3 million more people voted for Clinton, but Trump won based on the rules. There is no point in crying about the Electoral College as it is here to stay. Just like gerrymandering districts is an issue that happens when you are not looking.
So if you dissect my comments I am socially liberal and will admit it. However, to change the distribution of wealth in this country I do not see a quick remedy. I think small changes in our tax system are needed over time. I think we should try and protect those who cannot protect themselves by which I am referring to the mentally ill, the elderly, those who work, but still live in poverty. I think this is best done by private foundations rather than government bureaucrats. Small changes in our tax codes can go a long way to ensuring a social safety net for those who were not so lucky in life. The elderly could not possibly afford healthcare without Medicare. The poor and mentally ill cannot have access without Medicaid. We have a drug epidemic in our country and locking people up is not the answer. Alcohol and Drug addiction are a diseases not a character flaws and should be treated as such.
"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore."
What happened to this country that we now are trying to close our borders and feel contempt for the poor? How did a buffoon get into the oval office? I think Americans got conned by the greatest huckster of our time and I am not surprised. I am saddened.
That is a superior comment to
Look at this and "add link" Perhaps others just see it as nonsense. I can't change who I am or what I perceive to be true.
