Re: Afhghanistan and Global Perspective
My gripes historically have focused on the dwindling favoritism towards people like myself.

Why do you need favoritism? What's wrong with the idea that everyone should be treated fairly and decently?

And the only reason I liked Trump diplomacy in any way was that he thought American interests were getting taken advantage of by foreign interests who benefited from us more than we did from them.

That was your mistake. The real problem is that corporate interests have been benefiting at the cost of ordinary citizens (like you). And Trump favored corporate interests.

Re: Afhghanistan and Global Perspective
It would be as if you were suddenly slapped with $100,000.00 in debt and told that you must pay it back.

That's pretty much what happens whenever Republicans are elected. They give tax cuts to the very rich, and the rest of us will eventually have to pay down the resulting debt.

I'm simply in favor of not selling our own citizens down the river while the world passes us by.

Again, that is pretty much what Republicans do.

Re: Gang gallop ?
Well, marc9000, I usually don't reply to you because I don't see much point in piling on. And I assum that (piling on) is what you mean by "gang gallop". I'm usually satisfied with the replies that others make.

Two people responding yes, but how many more reading, and gathering up rage for future posts?

I'm not gathering up any rage. Maybe I am laughing at you. But you aren't worth getting angry.

All I'd like to do, is get to a point where we can agree to disagree.

I would be okay with that. But it would help if you didn't always come across as angry and on the attack.

One such problem I am having is understanding what would motivate a person to spread, no matter how laid-back and pleasantly, half-truths so politically slanted with what appears to be malicious intent knowing they’re going to be called out. The lies are bad enough but the twisting of data and use of emotion-laden words to manufacture corruption from nothing, in this case, looks like political payback.

The odd think about this, is that they claim to be Christians. Yet what they are doing is thoroughly unchristian. At best, they are fake Christians.
