Sounds like you'Re proud of that instead of being ashamed, which you should be. Do you think shooting someone dead is the preferred method of dealing with people you disagree with?
I don't know about you. If it were me in a car being punched by a stupid buy on rage, I would do everything I can to protect myself and those in my car with me. I would at least punch the guy back. Sounds like you prefer to just stand there and take the punches. I would not. I sincerely doubt that that road rage suspect would be one that can be reasoned with.

We should add the fact that Trump and his supporters don't even know what slogan to use for their campaign: "Make America Great Again" or "Keep America Great Again". At a recent rally, Trump asked his supporters which he should use. They in response couldn't make a decision. They all needed to be told what to think. That to me is so disturbing on so many levels.

Trump probably thinks that Greenland has much green, so that he can play golf whenever he feels like it.
Maybe it will be good that he buys his own island and ship himself off and stay there forever. It will do the world a whole lot of good. I hope he doesn't think he can waste anymore of American taxpayers' hard earned money.

Republicans are such a bunch of hypocrites. They want to change long-standing laws regarding even legal immigrants now, but will cry foul if anyone even mentions touching their outdated gun laws.

Does this mean they will have to change the quote on the Statue of Liberty? Instead of "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses ..." I guess it would then be changed to "Give me your strong, rich, white ...." This is what Trump's America is turning out to be.

Trump owns the golf course and it’s close by.
But it still doesn't take away the fact that it costs millions of dollars per trip just to pay for things like transportation, Coast guard service (to guard the waters surrounding places like "Mar-a-lago"), a Secret Service mobile office, ballistic glass, etc. There is also the ethical issue of promoting his properties while he visits them. And it doesn't take away the fact that he outright lied when he said he wouldn't waste time playing golf if he were president.

It's amazing how Trump is able to spin a tragedy and center it all on him. He always wants the spotlight on him and will do anything and at anytime to praise his accomplishments while downplaying the real victims of this massacre.

Not really, given the very large poor population in China. You still have more poor people than rich people, they will greatly suffer more than anyone in the US, just by the sheer numbers of poor people that they have.
Do you really think the Chinese government cares about their own poor people? In that way, Trump is similar. And in that sense, you seem to care more about Trump winning than for the American poor and farmers. But hey, Trump probably feels the same. As long as he wins and his ego is appeased, nothing else matters.

This is a blow to Trump's reelection hopes. He largely won because of the backing from the rural voters in America. Now, even farmers and their families are losing confidence and are feeling the effect of losing their markets. Trump's so-called assistance package is simply a Band-aid and will not help solve farmers' problems one bit.

Truth is, bad things happen,
Yeah, but it happens way to often in America. The GOP and Trumpers feel that just doing nothing, or making more guns is the solution. I'm sorry to say, but Americans need to start thinking outside of the box. They need to stop trying to pound a square peg into a round hole. At the very least, they should institute a ban on all semi-automatics. Why do regular citizens need them in the first place?

Donald Trump once said, "I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and not lose any voters." And now we're to believe that he cares about gun violence?
Also, what is amazing is that the police in Drayton responded to this shooting in 60 seconds. Yet, the shooter was able to kill 9 people and wounding 26 others. I'm pretty sure you can't do that level of carnage with a knife in 60 seconds. Guns are the problem.

Fact is, that Trump's lies have stoked hatred, like the one in the shooter's (Patrick Crusius) manifesto. Because Trump has tried to sell his lie that all Hispanics are rapists and murderers, uneducated followers will believe in it. It's kind of like the lie that Trump is trying to sell about tariffs on Chinese products. Trump wrongly wants his followers to believe that the Chinese are paying for the tariffs and no money is being shouldered by Americans. Either Trump doesn't understand Economics 101, or he wants to sell that lie to his people.

If it was a Muslim or Black that did this, Trump would use it as a platform to spew hatred. However, since it was a white male that did this shooting, he says nothing. His complete silence on this is really telling of his true character, and his followers will follow his doctrine of hatred no matter how wrong it is.
3 ( +5 / -2 )
Why is it always the case with Trump supporters and the rightists that when the shooting is done by a white person, it's all about mental heath. But when it's done by a minority, it's because they are thugs and rapists? Are they trying to make us all believe that a white male should be given a free pass because they were just a little mentally disturbed?

I feel like we're expressing our condolences to the deceased of mass shootings in America on a weekly basis. I long for the time when these shootings were shocking to us. I'm sure Trump will spin it somehow that more walls would have kept this criminal out of our country.

A result of this trade war is that China if finding out that there are so many cheaper options out there and more willing countries that would like to do business with China. Trump thinks that his 16 billion dollars promised to farmers affected by his trade war will help, but when its spread so thinly among millions of farmers, its not that much help. Also, the time and effort they took to develop their export partners will not be easy to get back. Would you rather trust the voice of a liar like Trump who says farmers are doing great, or from the voice of the farmers themselves who say they are experiences losses at an alarming rate?

Well, whomever is the Democratic candidate, would have to have a solution to get back all the lost markets that Trump lost for American farmers due to his so-called trade war. The American farming industry is starting to go the way of the coal mining business and will soon disappear. American farmers will join the growing list of people on welfare and food stamps, as countries like China have decided to import crops like soybeans and wheat from cheaper countries like Brazil and Russia. Contrary to what Trump would like people to believe, losses in the exports of crops from the U.S. will eventually negatively affect the American economy.

Let's see, on one hand, we have Robert Mueller, who is was a long-time director of the FBI, is a decorated (Purple Heart and Bronze Star) Vietnam vet, is an esteemed attorney, and has served under Bush Sr, Clinton, Bush, and Obama. On the other hand, we have Trump ... Who are you apt to believe?

Desperate times can drive people to do desperate things.
There is no justification for this. This was murder; plain and simple. I know a few foreigners who have divorced in Japan, but they never let it get to them and moved on with their lives. In fact, the two men I personally know who have divorced with kids, have found new girlfriends and still have time to spend with their kids on the weekends or days off.
On the flip side, I've heard of several divorced men in other countries, like the U.S., who have flipped and killed his ex-wife and kids. Does that mean the divorce system in those countries are whacked too? IMHO, most of the blame lies squarely on the perpetrator. Becoming an alcoholic, depressed, or withdrawn, is one thing. Resorting to murder is totally uncalled for and should not be acceptable.

Even if you don't agree with McCain's policies when he served as a senator, doesn't give you the right to criticize the service to his country, especially when you yourself have never served. It is what is called being a hypocrite is. That is Trump. Yes, there were Presidents in the past who have never served in the military, but never have they lambasted and criticized someone who was a decorated war hero after they have died, such as Trump has. It is utterly cruel. To top that off, Trump does it while showing off his own so-called successes and praises himself. Each day with Trump becomes more and more a journey into the insane and weird.
The President seems calm, cool and collected, more confident wanting the report to come out.
And when Trump's sheep says things like this over and over, like a hypnotic mantra, it gets even more surreal ...

And yet, Donnie's son-in-law is still allowed to have top level security clearance and have meetings behind closed doors with Saudi officials. Isn't anyone afraid that by doing so, he is putting American lives at risk?

As a side note, when will Trump ever release his tax returns (something every President before him has done)? It should be written as a requirement before you take office. Make your tax returns transparent, as least to show in good faith that you have nothing to hide. Trump wouldn't be in any messes involving investigations into his transgressions if he just came out and be open about information that people request. It's what tax payers who are audited do.

Again, if Democrats would support Trump the way they supported Obama we wouldn’t be in this mess.
And if Republicans had supported Obama more when he was in office, then he would've been able to accomplish even more for the American people. At least Obama had the support of the Democratic minority at the time he was in office. Trump is even losing some his GOP support.

Let's see, Kim Jong likes to use fear to rule.
Putin uses fear to rule.
Trump likes using fear on a daily basis to rule.
Coincidence that they are all buddies? I think not.
Throughout history, there has been despots and madmen who used fear to rule and control the population. Yes, it's been pretty effective in brainwashing a large group of mindless followers to do their bidding.
However, it never ever ends well. If we continue on this path of letting this madman control mindless Americans through fear, I don't see it ending well at all.

What I don't get is that Trump is refusing to hand over his son-in-law's security clearance documents. If he has nothing to hide, then why the refusal? Obviously it means that Kushner has had some dealings with foreign powers like Russia, that they don't want noticed. Trump is the only president I know actually ORDERING his own former chief of staff to grant a member of his own family a security clearance, as if it were like candy. No one, and I repeat no one, should be handed security clearance so easily. It affects the security of all Americans and can be deemed unpatriotic by doing so.

That was a very expensive photo op. Trump goes to Vietnam, meets up with his buddy Kim, takes some nice photos to look good, then goes back to his hotel. All of this at taxpayers' hard earned money. And for what? I wouldn't be surprised if Trump and Kim planned all of this. They probably said to each other: Let's meet, take some nice photos to look like we're making peace for the press, then say we played hardball with each other. That way, we'll look good in front of our own people. You can keep your nukes, and I can make it seem as if I'm making some progress towards peace by being buddies with you. Trump may fool us once, but not again and again and again.

A president who would rather believe in a person like Putin or Kim Jong rather than his own fellow Americans, could definitely be considered a traitor.
