  1. The election is over. Just an idea since that thread is so bloated.
  2. I don't care about insults. I do care about death threats to the president and rape threats to the First Lady. I never saw one threat to lynch Obama, if I had, my reaction would be exactly the same. That so many others are different now should cause those people to pause and examine how far we've sunk.
  3. You gloss over the literally thousands of such examples on social media, but it's no big deal to threaten and wish death on the president. Ask Statick, Trump has other **** he should be worrying about.
  4. Nah, it's the left. Look to your party's leadership as an example, or to your party's propaganda arm, or to your party's violent thugs posing as protesters for months on end now, or to your party's actual protesters for months on end now, or... you get the idea. The left has won the battle for the biggest crybaby b*tches by a sizable degree.
  5. http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/324263-mcdonalds-tweets-to-trump-you-are-actually-a-disgusting-excuse
  6. I think this helps McCain's legacy. All this time I just thought he was a huge piece of wishy washy Rino s**t. It turns out that he's ******* senile or maybe just insane. For that, I can have sympathy for him...not much, but some.
  7. I can take the crying, pissing, and moaning. That's what has come to define the left, but the daily barrage of death and now rape threats? Not so much.
  8. Not the wisest business move, but I still laughed. Speaking of disgusting though, have they never tried their own food?
  9. It always comes back to being somehow on him? Nothing about the piece's of crap making these statements\threats, Not just Madonna, Snoop dog, or BW, but the many, many examples on a daily basis on social media, they just get ignored or brushed aside as you do here. Threats to kill you or rape and make your wife a sexual slave. Meh, doesn't he have more important things to worry about? GTFO
  10. Is this accurately reported Terror Warning: Several Injured in French School Shooting So, in your opinion is Breitbart in fact a "real news" organization, or was sobeit's point valid? You can't have it both ways.
  11. More than anything else this is the type crap that I find most annoying http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/media/324233-violent-threats-against-the-president-is-ok-now Violent threats against the president are OK now? Turn on TV or browse your newsfeeds on social media, and you will be bombarded with polemics about the sky falling and credible threats of violence against conservative figures. The FBI investigated a threat to kill Milo Yiannoupolis for the audacity to want to speak on a college campus. Threats against former Labor Secretary nominee Andy Puzder’s wife caused him to withdraw himself from consideration. Multiple intimidatory remarks haunted members of the Trump-voting Electoral College. President Trump has been the target of declarations of violence on a near daily basis. And yet, when it comes to this constant flow of threats, there seems to be little outrage from the nation’s leading journalists and pundits. Social media shines almost every day with a new dimwitted threat against Trump and his presidency. “Comedienne” Sarah Silverman called for a military coup. Madonna told protesters she “thought” about blowing up the White House. Violence seems to break out every time a conservative comes to speak at a college campus. Rosie O’Donnell talks about “stopping” Trump on Twitter. Snoop Dogg has done his best to get back on people’s radars since 1998 with his new music video in which he assassinates a clown dressed as Trump. Even if it was just a stunt by the 45-year-old rapper to stay relevant, it was still completely crass and unacceptable. The media has largely glossed over these serious threats with a shrug. A simple Google search on Snoop Dogg’s assassination video, for example, yields virtually no mainstream editorials expressing disgust. It’s almost as if there’s an overarching belief among the media that Trump brought this upon himself. All of these actions underlines what’s been obvious for a while now: The calls by President Obama for “civility” after the 2011 shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords were never genuine. The left only uses such efforts as a cudgel to silence their political foes, then turns around to call them Hitler when needed. The selective outrage is deafening. Obama was certainly the target of vicious remarks, but the calls for outright violence from the left have received nowhere near the same attention in the press as conservatives received during the Obama years. Every time a threatening, disrespectful, or unflattering comment was made about the former president, a national shaming storm sprung up. A staffer for an obscure congressman was forced to resign after stating that Obama’s daughters don’t show enough "class." Ex-congressman Joe Walsh was slammed in nearly every major outlet after he tweeted, “This is now war. Watch out Obama,” after five cops were fatally shot in Dallas. Even Tea Partiers were regularly called neo-Confederates. Selective outrage gets tiring, even in the Trump years. Both sides of the political spectrum seem to understand the concept of “outrage fatigue.” An Huffington Post op-ed asked its readers if they suffered from protest fatigue — the author wrote, "Daily I am poised to do something to ride the emotional tsunami." Fortunately for those of us constantly seeing crises on Facebook, we already have a term for such an ailment: The boy who cried wolf. Heck, the Onion was on this over a decade ago. Political tensions are reaching a boiling point and the mainstream media, pundits, and “analysts” do nothing but fan the flames. The American people are quick to pick up on coverage patterns. Many are still making up their own minds about President Trump but understand that he is doing his best. They know (and maybe support) that the Democrats are the opposition party. They don’t want the media to be another. These are serious times requiring serious attention – not just adoring coverage of ***** Hat protesters. At the end of the day it’s going to be the members of the traditional press gaggle left pointing fingers. Yesterday's example. Where are the p***y hats decrying this misogyny?
  12. Then had I directed this joke at you, you might have a point, but I didn't so you don't.
  13. No really good place to drop this, so this thread will do. Just sharing some pride.
  14. That's no way for a Hillary supporter to speak of the woman he chose as his ruler.
  15. They said the same of Trump, yet here we are with the media still looking for the red boogieman Part 12.
  16. From this morning. I want to see him put something forth to back this up.
  17. You don't say. So Canadians have common sense about something obvious (minus their liberals), just as we do (minus our liberals), ...who would have thought it.
  18. When the baby entered in the walker. Dead. My wife and I watched this and were laughing ourselves sick because it hit so close to home, to them interrupting my teleconference meeting, so the baby following the older sister, to the panicked wife realizing in terror they slipped away and where they'd gone. Never on this scale obviously, but **** near the same thing has happened to us.
  19. Trump has always been a RINO, I've never argued differently. I don't need a conservative purist in office in order to support him. I do appreciate someone who keeps his campaign promises and follows through on what he tells the people who supported him that he would do. The funny part about this to me is that Trump, who pretty much everyone agreed is no conservative, has been more consistently conservative in his policy than any of the so called conservatives whose "consciences would not allow them to support him" ever were.
  20. I think he wants to get on to tax cuts and his many other projects, but I could not disagree him more in being passive in how this is being handled.
  21. I could see that. That seems just weasily and disingenuous enough to be the plan they decided to go with.
  22. Who should receive the blame? I'm sure you'll say Trump, and he would deserve some because he did not shove this bill down Eddie Muster's throat the first time he read it, but Ryan ensured by the way this was created and introduced that it is his, or at least it should be.
  23. Probably, they hate the new health care bill. Ryan is trying everything under the sun to make it sound as though it is fabulous when the Obamacare lite moniker is much more accurate. I'm no fan of the new bill, and I agree with Trout that the Republicans are blowing their shot. I'm surprised by what a crappy job they have done in this, but not shocked. Seven years they had to get this right, all their grandstanding, all their smugness about how it should be done, and this was the best they could put forth. Ryan acts as though this first stage of three bs should pacify us. That is based on republicans trusting him, many of us don't...not even a little, so he can take that contention along with his PowerPoint and shove them. This is my first real disappointment in Trump that he is allowing himself to be sucked in by this Rinocare garbage. I know he wants to get it done and move on, but if this passes as it is, it will haunt him his entire time as president and even beyond. Tell those fence sitting ******* to go back and get this plan right the first time. If the dems won't pass a real alternative then let them burn with Obamacare. Rand Paul's plan is a much more viable option. All that said, this outrage over how many will lose their healthcare is a joke. I agree that a viable option for healthcare should be available for all citizens, it is not however the job of government to spoon feed that option to those too stupid, irresponsible, or dependent on them to plan for themselves. None of us like paying for health insurance, but we do it anyway because we're f****** adults.
  24. I was generalizing about the "real news" argument. Just used your post as an example
