  1. Come on Mike, the Muslim Brotherhood, Louis Farrakan, Bill Ayers and other left wing extremists endorsed Obama. And "Black Lives Matter" inspired police killings happened under his watch too. All of it sucks, but Obama chose his endorsers. Trump just didn't do a good enough job downing the kkk. Who, in my opinion, should be run through a wood chipper. Along with the other hate groups. On either side. I'll need more time to study the assertions in your link. But the article itself reeks of bias. Get back to you on that. I have to say, your stance is no less mind numbing to me. And yes, I clearly remember your history here from years gone by. It's why your apparent 180 is quite shocking to see. I'd like to think I have a good built-in lie detector, too. And no, I do not think I'm some deep right wing intellectual. And, I would assert that the brainwashed masses reside on the left. We'll never change each others minds on that.
  2. No sir. I don't. He's got as much BS with him as anybody. But I don't buy into any assertion that he is the worst. Ratings have nothing to do with quality reporting. It is precisely to pursuit of ratings that has ruined every single news organization in the country. Their own ratings are what matters to them. And they all lie, mislead, and manipulate things in order to gain/keep them. If the crap they're peddling happens to be true on occasion, then it nirvana. That's what I meant. Sorry for not explaining better.
  3. Not sure there's a definitive answer here, TGB. I think I mentioned in an earlier post that I consider ALL tv media to be 90% BS. And that print media can be more accurate. But I don't think any are, consistently. Sorry I can't be more specific. As a general rule, I assume most all of it, print, tv, web... is BS. When I see something that peaks my interest, I will try and track down more on the subject. Until I'm either satisfied, or determine it doesn't warrant further time and effort.
  4. It's funny how not being endlessly critical of someone, is somehow "slurping on a guy". I remembered you being more sophisticated than that. But, I have been away for quite a while. I didn't think he bowed to Putin. Time will tell how things play out. But President Trump doesn't have to accomplish much to outdo President Obama's "Russian Reset". Wouldn't you agree? For the most part, I think he's doing quite well with foreign policy. Same with NoKo. If everything goes back to what it's been for the last 20+ years, the hostages he got released, and the remains that just came home, are more positive developments than anything Clinton, Bush, and Obama, combined, got done. I don't like the twitter stuff either. But it's all worth it knowing Hillary still isn't President. As to your last statement about rabbit holes and reality, half the country agrees with you. The other half agrees with me, that the opposite is true.
  5. You and I never had problems either. Even though we differed often in our opinions. Hated to see you gone. How've you been, t?
  6. I do read online wapo. I just logged back in and read Amber Phillips article. If you want, I can come by and teach you how to do it. Since you don't appear able to. Here's the next to last paragraph. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2018/07/27/why-washington-insiders-think-democrats-will-take-back-the-house/?utm_term=.80a089b1798e But but but: There are two caveats to all this. Democratic voters traditionally aren’t as likely to vote in midterms as Republicans. Also, the economy is doing well (though it could slow), which is normally a major indicator of success for the party already in power.
  7. As one of the other long time members here, you deserve a little more respect than the general respect necessary for ordinary members. I don't want to put words in your mouth, so I'll ask. Looking at this post alone, it appears that you're of the mind that only the right is guilty of all your assertions. Is that correct? Do you not see, that at a minimum, both sides are equally guilty. For the record, IMHO, the left is much, much more guilty of hate, racism, and dishonesty.
  8. Well, the main problem is you won't accept any answer that isn't yours. Two things. 1. The WaPo is delivered to work everyday. And every day I have the time, I read what interests me. 2. I just logged in to the online WaPo, again. No paid subscription needed to skim the headlines. But, thanks for playing.
  9. I did mention in the post that CNN was the biggest joke of all. Their dismal ratings would suggest I may be right.
  10. Never watched any Tea Party Rallies. Though I did find this encouraging. From The Root https://www.theroot.com/black-tea-partiers-speak-1790879398 Didn't know who he was until your post. Looks like just another blowhard. Yes, I have watched Fox during the Obama years. It's a more realistic view than CNN during President Trump's current tenure. It is my opinion that Obama helped flame the racial divide by siding against police officers, in almost every instance, before knowing what the facts were. Just as many are now blaming Trump for a rise in white supremist asshole sightings, racists organizations like the new black panther party, and black lives matter, were emboldened to riot, destroy property, etc... Candace Owens, and Sheriff David Clark would likely agree.
  11. Obviously, I don't agree. Accurate, would be my assertion. Most of today's racism, and promotion of violence, comes from the left. They constantly scream for tolerance, while possessing little, to none. Well then, let me explain. The Ax-Man never said he did. But thanks?
  12. I'd like to re-address this, since I completely missed the first of your 2 questions. My original answer, to the 2nd question, was more than sufficient. But since you, and someone else, didn't think it was detailed enough, I'll try again. Though I have my doubts it will make a difference. But, a guy can hope. I can, will, and do watch all the MS tv news/so-called news channels. This would include, but is not limited to, ABC, BBC, CBS, CNN(Very limited) FOX, MSNBC, and NBC. I read print media, newspaper versions, that include, but are not limited to, Washington Post and New York Times. Online WAPO, NYT, and too many others to remember. Links given in stories, from everywhere, take you to sources, other stories, etc... I hope that is more definitive for you. If not, you might ask for further clarification. I'd be glad to try and answer any question you might have. Now, to the 1st question, which I missed completely... "...what media outlets do you consider honest & unbiased?" Answer: None. Because they do not exist. Obviously, some are a little better/worse than others. With CNN being the biggest joke of all. But every "news" institution on the planet has a bias. And honesty is always trumped by ratings. Always
  13. Damn, lots of liberal hysteria to reply to. Gotta commute home now. Back for laughs after dinner. I'll bring my snow shovel.
  14. And none of it. Not one little piece, touches on Trump. But thanks for playing.
  15. I watch as much of all the channels as I can stomach. But on important issues I research as much as I can to verify/dispute what's being reported. I'd say the tv MSM are 90% BS. Print can be more accurate. You just need to find the source of the info to determine motive. That's what you want it to mean. But as with most things, you are wrong. Again. Can't be both, for long.
  16. No. That's one instance when he did the right thing. Of course, he had little choice. Slick Willy took grief for wussing out. Obama didn't want that to happen. and my guess is, he had a ready scapegoat if things when bad. Yeah, but not too many. Failed policy doesn't have to be weak, or strong. It just failed. not as bad as sending millions in cash to the world's #1 sponsor of terror. No, I'm saying after Baghdad fell, Tehran should have been next. No, but I'm Super Smart. Well then, let's flip the script. What makes you believe he was not a weak leader. Being a weak leader wasn't his only problem. He knows nothing about economics. He is a socialist. I'm not trying to convince you you're wrong. That'll never happen. Knowing that you are is enough.
  17. Preachers calling out liars is what they do. Unfortunately, too many should be doing so in a mirror. And I realize that not citing verifiable evidence opens the door to criticism. It gives one the ability to totally dismiss anything said. Not knowing how wrong you are only hurts you. I'm doing just fine.
  18. Is it actually beachfront, or is there a dune blocking the view? I love being called a liar by a preacher. You are still a preacher, aren't you. Or something to do with organized religion. No evidence. You mean like, Mueller?
  19. Well, all 3 of them are wrong. But, the MSM has damn near everyone afraid to voice a differing opinion. Unlike myself, they can't handle the swarm. Obama was weak. The only reason many allies liked get their picture taken with him, is because standing next to Obama, they didn't look so weak. Eisenhower knew the country was war weary. So he, like Bush, took his foot off the gas. Had China and Russia been handled then, we might be in better shape. No way to know for sure. Reagan was wrong to pull out, in the way we did. That was only 1 instance. Obama was weak, everyday. Bush also succumbed to media/political pressure. But there were more instances of not being weak, than of being weak. When no one fears you. At all.
  20. Well, as I told someone else, we know different people, that's all.
  21. Each issue is it's own. Integration was the right thing to do. It was also inevitable. If they'd have listened to Mac, things might have been better. Of course, they might have been worse too. The militaries purpose is to be the most devastating killing machine on the planet. Having a weakling CIC is not the preferable choice.
  22. So was General Custer. We know different people, that's all. Lots of top officers took an earlier retirement than they planned. Once Obama started replacing them with "quota" officers, sympathetic to his socialist leaning worldview.
  23. I should clarify what I meant by privileged. Obama was raised in a white household. Doubt he ever spent a hungry day in his life. Was able to go to college. If he was all white, instead of half, wouldn't he have been, according to some, a beneficiary of white privilege? He may not have had a silver spoon, but compared to a lot of people in this country, of every color/race, he's had an easy life. As in, privileged. Obviously, you can't know what I pay now, compared to before. So, calling me a liar, is your choice. Being wrong, is the reality. Hey! You win the cookie!
  24. Gutting the military doesn't have to be limited to just dollars. Especially when those dollars aren't itemized. Though I realize that is the usual meaning. I should have been more clear. I'd say he gutted morale. That's worse than just dollars. But there were/are many shortages of supplies/weapons, not to mention few pay raises. Forcing soldiers to accept men, who want to play female, didn't help much either.
  25. Yes, damn him for quadrupling my premiums. For tripling my deductible. And for lying about it during the process. Nothing is better. And you'll get no argument from me, the R's haven't, and likely won't, do anything about it. It simply isn't true the R's stifled anyone's agenda. (Well, except currently) I know that's the myth that the left believes. As they swallow every bit of spoon fed drivel that the Democrat cheerleading MSM feeds them. Oh, he could read a teleprompter well. Gotta give him that. Snowflakes are real. Rush is a blowhard. But he's smarter than anyone on the left. Anyone.
