Re: voters for Trump
The point is half the country voted for the man and still support him and we NEVER hear from THEM on the in-your-face media.
But not even half the voters that actually voted in 2016 voted for him.
see 2016 United States presidential election - Wikipedia for the details.
Summary:
Trump         Clinton
Popular vote 	62,984,828 	65,853,514
Percentage 	    46.1% 	    48.2%

           eligible                  turnout                       percent
2016 	250,056,000 (estimated)   138,847,000 (estimated)    55.5% (estimated)
So 62,984,828 / 250,056,00 is about 25.19% of the eligible voters, not close to "half" as you claimed.

Re: Bizarre-O World
Hyro inquires:
So you don't find it odd listening to Democrats for the last 50 years defending Russia...
WHEN??? I might have to go all the back to Isadora Duncan's day to find such things.

Re: Dan Crenshaw Has a Message For Faith
Faith, do you suffer from dyslexia? Seems you don't know the left from the right. That's the only way I can explain your posts.

Voter ID
Percy writes:
...it is a significant enough inconvenience to certain segments of the population as to discourage voting.
Indeed.
Voter ID is actually a form of voter suppression. It is similar to closing certain polling sites, leaving the only open sites too far away to get to.

I guess you think that when Jesus said (as he supposedly did) "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." he meant that he wanted to go first.
The joke on the internet went "as soon as he said that, a stone flies over him from behind and he whirls around and exclaims 'Mom!!!' "

Re: terrorist attacks
Faith throws in the towel:
it's just beyond me and I don't care a whole lot.
well then we shouldn't care a whole lot anymore about you, Faith.
sad. nobody's forcing you to post on EvC.
obviously your vision problems are seriously impairing your participation, as they understandably would.
so if you want to quit, so be it. you will be missed.

The Mueller Report
Faith asserts:
The Mueller report first concluded that there was no evidence of Russian collusion by Trump's campaign...
Not true. He said there was INSUFFICIENT evidence, not ZERO.
You are quoting Barr's summary, which was a lying mis-characterization - leave his lies out of this discussion.

Re: Impeachable actions by Trump
Faith asks about the whistle blower:
They have NOTHING, it's all innuendo...
They have Trump himself on national TV, they have Taylor's testimony and just now Sondland has reversed his original view. And the list of testimonials is growing and growing.
They don't need the whistle blower anymore - there's plenty of corroborating evidence now.

Re: global warming
You could google "global warming" and find that your view is simply ignorant.
Here's an old (June 2015) site I liked for the graphs:
Bloomberg - Are you a robot?
Click past the misleading link label.
Another link:
What is global warming? | Live Science
a bit easier for those who have math/graph vertigo.
"Here are the bare numbers, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA): Average surface temperatures rose a total of 1.71 degrees Fahrenheit (0.95 degrees Celsius) between 1880 and 2016. The pace of change has been an additional 0.13 degrees F (0.07 degrees C) per decade, with the land surface warming faster than the ocean surface 0.18 degrees F (0.10 degrees C) versus 0.11 degrees F (0.06 degrees C) per decade, respectively."

Re: waste cleanup
marc9000 wonders:
I've always wondered just what environmentalists expect coal and power companies to do with their waste...
Here's a thought:
QUIT MAKING IT and cease to use fossil fuels.

Re: whistleblower analogy the stupid GOP needs to understand
(testing of posting an image)
click this image link:
Note that when I use the [img-/img dbcodes, it prints the IMAGE NOT FOUND message we just saw in the humor thread (on 11/22/2019).
Edited by Admin, : I added the [img] tags back in and it seems to be working. Hopefully image still displays after I post this edit.
