I have also noticed several posters who clearly lie in what anyone would consider to the left of center. They will post the most inane comments and when called their stock answer seems to be "you can't take a joke?" It also brings to mind Al Gore's comment that if you are don't have a college degree the only thing you can do is end up in the military. When told that was demeaning his response was "It was just a joke bro".Perhaps liberals, progressives, or what ever label they wish to hide behind now simply don't have a sense of humor. After all they all suffer from Anal Optilitist where they have their eye balls crossed with their $#@!s and this gives them a $#@!ty outlook on life.
    You ever see late night shows? Yup, we have a sense of humor.

    It is amazing to me the Dems haven't and can't seem to figure out why Trump was elected. Why they lost the middle Blue Voters. Here is one big reason. The BIG TENT PARTY isn't so big anymore. Middle Blue Collar dems are not accepted because they don't agree with the left wing. They are attacked and ridiculed in today's Dem party. One is not allowed to disagree. The whole selling point of the Dem Party was the ability to differ. Not anymore.

    My point exactly. Late Night Shows are mean spirited and 100% left wing oriented. No humor there except to those with a rather pervert world view.

    Oh, but they are. They are hilarious. YOU have no sense of humor as you think Trumper is a god.

    Oh, it's not mean spirited to look at a jackass and buffoon who takes money from taxpayers like he's a king and make fun of his stupidity..not at all.

    The problem with Carson was he was the first to bring out celebrities and allowed them to make political commentary.

    He was a snappy dresser however and when in Hong Kong I bought one of his tailor made suits.

    Wow
    I couldn't ask for better vindication of my viewpoint then you are giving me. Keep it up. Lets see just how ridiculous you can get.
