I voted for Bill Clinton in my Kindergarten Mock poll. I have been a Democrat my whole life, but I guess you could say I've become more "left" as time has gone on.

Many former Dems (including myself) grow out of that...unfortunately, many Lemmings don't.

Trump and R.N.C. Raised $105 Million in 2nd Quarter, a Sign He Will Have Far More Money Than in 2016.

WASHINGTON — President Trump’s re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee said on Tuesday they had raised $105 million in the second quarter of this year, outraising President Barack Obama in the equivalent period during his 2012 re-election campaign and signaling that Mr. Trump will have far more resources than he did in 2016.

Maybe you could enlist like my brother Door Gunner and figure out what it's all about.  flag-day.jpg?quality=80&strip=all&w=1236

This is so stupid. You're telling someone to enlist in the military so they appreciate this country... by showing someone who dodged serving in Vietnam and has talked mad **** about POWs. And anyone who has served in the military knows that hugging the flag is disrespectful and inappropriate.

I have folded flags in glass cases representing friends who died in pointless wars or killed themselves after serving multiple tours... wars that have achieved nothing.

You are one misguided person.

I mean...Trump was speaking about McCain only, and years later you still believe he meant all POWs.  

I'm a bit dismayed that you think that nothing was achieved, really? I know you're stronger than that.  Hey we all get down about this or that BS sometimes, but we all look out for each other and make sure we get home ok, or at least try to.  That's something.

A guy in Iraq was telling the younger dudes, "I don't want to hear ANY of you complaining!  If you had voted for Gore, none of us would be here right now." ;)

He said “I like people who weren’t captured.” I don’t really give a **** who he was talking about. I’ll let you worry about what he “really meant.”

I’m proud of my service and I never complained about what I had to do. I’m not complaining about it now. I genuinely miss the mindset and simplicity of life in a war zone sometimes. Genuinely. I used to sit up all night just wishing I could go back because normal life felt empty. I have an attitude of accountability though. I’m saying thousands of Americans and a ton more civilians have died primarily to further enrich the already wealthy. Iraq was about oil and defense contractors, not terrorism or liberating the people. We got blown up and killed escorting trucks loaded with candy bars, potato chips and Gatorade for people to buy ffs. McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, even KFC opened up stores in Iraq after we invaded.

We created a void that ISIS filled and did even more to damage and destabilize the region. And anyone who thinks Al Gore wouldn’t have invaded Iraq is crazy. He had a speech in 2002 talking about building a coalition to take down Saddam Hussein. It probably just wouldn’t have happened the same exact way.

Afghanistan has been a **** show from the word go. Controlling the poppy fields there is the biggest thing I never hear anyone talk about and whenever we leave there we will have gained almost nothing. The Taliban will take over again when we leave, it’s inevitable.

Now we have crooks in Washington hellbent on starting a conflict with Iran. 

People who interpret “patriotism” to mean flag humping and being a yes man to clear corporate interests and the drums of war blow my mind. So many people have been fleeced in this country and will fall for anything.

Just goes to show you how many racists Trump has fired up and recruited to his side. What has this country come to under his 'leadership'?

As far as Iraq, I was one of the most gung-ho guys before it started but when we finally got the call I was puzzled about the necessity.  The containent strategy was working, and why weren't we being sent to Afghanistan instead?  I had to internalize that the the UN gave us the green light and make peace with it.

Iran has their **** together.  Patrolling a road that was the border, every so often there were mud brick observation posts.  We'd wave to the soldiers, and they would flip us off...wait, where did they learn that?  They followed us in parallel, rolling around in jeeps with recoilless rifles mounted on them.  At night they were nervous and had a jet dropping IR flares, and heavier forces in BMPs and BTRs that were behind the hills.  When they put one in the air, "Stop joking about who gets to shoot down the Hind over the net!"  Good times.

Just tearing down the whole backboard like Shaq dunking on a kid's basketball hoop. And what's she going to do about it, start arguing with progressives over whether she herself is racist and supports the establishment too much to not ultimately side with the Republicans over them? Trump has her exactly where he wants her, but because he's stupid and racist and that was the only point of those tweets, there's no reason for Pelosi to side with him even to the extent that she did unless she buys pure stupidity (doubtful), or...she tacitly supports what Trump's openly selling? It's gotta be that one, right?

Back to respectability foreign and domestic. Nice try at the race diversions though, Squirrely Bob.

I read something interesting: the idea is that Trump is acting deliberately, trashing the Famous Four in a sufficiently disgusting way so that the whole D party would vocally support them, therefore creating in the mind of the public the notion that the D party is shifting more to the left and thus being more likely to be rejected.

Maybe too Machiavellian for a petulant toddler... I don't know...

Trump is doing more to make defacto party leaders our of a bunch of freshman Congresspersons when than could have ever accomplished themselves. 

And that's the plan. Trump wants AOC, Omar, et al to be the face of the Democratic party. Even when the truth is the party is run by centrists that basically cave to Trump at every turn.

It's really no different than Rove's strategy in Dubya's campaigns. Trump is just doing it in a more boorish and disgusting manner.

Not going to debate you over a racist piece of poop. The racist Whitehouse swamp will disappear in 2020.
