Re: 2020 General Election

The only people Trump inflames are those on the left including pro BLM & ANTIFA. Trump inflames all of the rubes who support him. He inflames the ignorant people in that group in a way that is associated with supporting him. On the other hand, he also inflames anybody with a sense of decency. He in...

Re: Chinese Trade War

I think that, by the time everyone realized that there was a problem, a total travel ban would not have worked. Once it's in the most important thing is limiting it within. I also disagree with the idea that Trump, or I guess you could say our government if you don't want to blame Trump, could not ...

I think the "horrible" aspect of the situation is that a greater percentage of the people trust Trump on ANYTHING more than they trust the media.

There must be some evidence that they attacked the little boy for there to have been arrests but the video doesn't show that. They did steal a hat. They knocked it off the boys head.
