It says one thing clearly, right wing politics is without a moral base, it is rather a sad tribalism that excuses the evil of breaking up families in need because a loud mouthed draft dodger shouts hate and lies. Sad.

    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Yeah, I was wondering about that too. The truth is that they have no qualms about imposing their values. Or perhaps I should say "shoving their religion down our throats".

    It really is odd. This is another area where the progressive left is woefully inconsistent. One day morality is private. It's personal. It is not to be imposed. The next day politics must have a moral basis.

    Hegelian inconsistency. Remember the left rejects the logical law of noncontradiction. It's more about will to power. Baffle 'em with bull$#@!.

    My favorite line from the NOKO meetings. "We tried to discuss this with Obama in 2012 and he wouldn't give us the time of day."

    Breaking campaign promise. Why? Because he was ran by handlers like most politicians.
    Blacks and poor people been voting Democrat for years and years. Hey are no better off. Vote for economics and traditions. Be part of saving America from the nutty left. The ones that highjacked this jaskassery Party.

    No need to imagine it.




    This amateur that you guys keep whining about has accomplished more in a year and a half than Obama or Clinton accomplished in their 16 years in office combined.

    He makes some legitimate points about Trump being governed by instinct, but he's completely off base to say that Trump's instincts about meeting with North Korea were wrong. Specifically:

    There were voices, yes, that warned that maybe doing something like this on the spur of the moment wasn’t the world’s best idea. That something like this takes planning. That maybe there’s a reason a bilateral summit with North Korea just hasn’t magically happened in these last 80 years, and maybe even diplomats—dour, bureaucratic men and women that they are, always seeing the complicated side of things—have a point about treading carefully into these waters.
    There is nothing magical about having a bilateral summit with another leader, even one who is hostile towards your country. During the cold war, the US and the Soviet Union had several bilateral meetings with one another. This writer just cannot stand the thought that Trump's instincts were better than decades of DC group-think. The "experts" have been telling us for so long that a bilateral summit with North Korea can only happen under some unspecified, perfect conditions, crafted carefully by "dour" bureaucrats with decades of experience in the subtleties of international relations, that most people have simply accepted this shibboleth as fact. But with one afternoon, Trump was able to disprove this sophistic narrative by relying on his instincts. That must hurt for someone like this writer who has placed his faith in the political establishment.
    Two things awe me most, the starry sky above me and the moral law within me.
