You asked who has "accused" Trump of anything. There are the names in Message 27. The accusations themselves are the proof that he was accused.

Izquierdo.

Actually, having an idiot like Trump in the White House makes it clearer to me what a good system of checks and balances you guys have.

Re: Tired Joe Biden

Unless it was just a bad 30 seconds, no way is Biden going to be our next president.


Back in the 80s when Brian Mulroney was Prime Minister of Canada, he was away at some international conference. A lady I worked with objected, saying he should be here running the country. I told her that, as far as I was concerned, the farther away he was the better off the country was.

So Rip van Winkle for President.

YOU are the one interested in their color, Trump is not, the Republicans are not. It's a Leftist preoccupation, the Right has no interest in their color.


If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck - not just people preoccupied with ducks.

The words are in reality, yes. In black and white, yes.

But you don't read his actual words. You only read what the commentators claim he meant.

The scary thing is I think the Leftists believe it's racist, which is a mental problem.


It's better to have a few false alarms than to miss the real ones.

If the alarms were false - i.e. if Trump wasn't racist, he'd be able to demonstrate it.

Say you lived in an average family with hard-working parents. Yes, you grew up in the Aberration of the late fifties and sixties, but your family was not wealthy.(Though they were better off than the average Puerto Rican)
Dad died and left a modest will. So you initially stood to inherit maybe $25,000.00. Now imagine that your "family" adopted 20 more children. Now, you are left with $1,250.00 rather than $25,000.00.


That isn't too far from the mark.

I didn't always get along with my father. He did threaten more than once to cut me out of his will. I told him, "Go ahead."

I owe as much to my parents as anybody - but not cash. What they gave me could not be diminished by spreading it thinner.


But your hangups have nothing to do with my remark to Faith. Her posts have become downright embarassing. I can no longer believe that she is just right-wing stupid. She is either a troll or she is actively promoting evil.
