  • Scott Adams says Trump critics may scare him to vote: 'They're coming for you next'

    Consider the over the top consuming hatred Strzok has for Trump and Trump voters. This level of hatred leads to evil decisions.

    This is what I found so disturbing about his testimony at the one Congressional committee hearing. He swore under oath before God and the entire nation that his personal feelings had no effect on his job performance. But common sense tells us that can't be true. A person doesn't say the things he said about Donald Trump and his supporters without a hatred that is deep and pathological, and must of its own soul-searing corrosiveness permeate his entire rational and irrational being. An individual with that kind of pathology simply cannot avoid having their ingrown hatred express itself in their job performance.

  • Mexico Goes Full Venezuela, Elects Socialist Prez Andrés Manuel López Obrador In Landslide

    I was thinking of men w/o the wall. Some have suggested that because they think the wall is “racist”. That’s dumb. That would require a lot of personnel. The wall makes the difference. Fewer personnel can guard more territory with the wall. Emperor Qin figured that out over 2200 years ago. I think we can do as well today. So I agree we will need personnel to man the wall, but probably less than we’d need without it (if it would be possible at all).

    Amen to that. As soon as this clown (further) ruins Mexzuela, there is going to be a human flood tide of refugees into this country. We don't have the military personnel to guard every last mile, so the wall is the only way to stop it. They sure aren't going to go south. Nicaragua and Panama aren't going to want them. Our national security will be at stake, not from force or arms, but the veritable tsunami of refugees that will inundate our economy and overload our social support net.

    I do not disagree with any of that. I think our experiences with the Grace that comes of accepting Christ as personal Savior may vary from person to person, but the source of that Grace is the same. I cannot say anything I have experienced is necessarily “spectacular” in the sense of being showy or gaudy, but has been more of an inner peace and calmness of spirit that I am able to call upon when feeling anger and hostility towards those I perceive as unjust and cruel. I tend to find the perfection of God revealed in more subtle ways but is nonetheless real and apparent if only we have the eyes to see and the ears to hear. But that’s just me. Others’ experiences may vary.

    "...demanding rights for immigrants, women and Muslims!..."

    Idiots. They have rights now. The only ones who don't have all the rights of citizens are non-citizens and, for some rights, convicted felons. But even they are accorded protections under the law.

    I guess I don’t have the ability to look into a person’s heart and pass judgment on their mortal souls based on that. Its true that we can see what they do and evaluate those actions in terms of religious precepts. As to how far I can go with or without the support of a particular voting bloc, I don’t know, we’ll have to see. Aside from avoiding having this thread degenerate into a religious pissing contest, my main focus will be to do what we can to change the direction of the country, because the course set by Clinton and Obama, without correction by G. W. Bush, was looking pretty bleak. DJT has a chance to right the ship (politically speaking, the devil can stuff it) and IMO we should support that.

    Well, I guess I was thinking more in terms of the political realm rather than a theological one. Misapplying sacred Scripture is also something to avoid.

    In any case, putting the house in order is a good first step. We can keep a wary eye out for Satan while the cleanup is in progress.

    DJT was elected on the promise of changing things and cleaning out the rot in DC that has accumulated over the last couple of decades. He promised to do that and is making good on that promise. From a political perspective, Trump doesn't owe the 'Rats a thing. They hate his guts and always will, so f-them. Disloyal 'Pubs are also in that category, but some of them perhaps (note, perhaps) can be salvaged.

    This is our chance to really get something done for a change. We can be agents of that change if we unite behind this President and stand up for those things we believe in. We have to get behind our candidates this fall and really push them over the finish line. No staying home and whining about how so-and-so isn't perfect, or a "true" whatever. It's either that or continue to be a voice howling in the wilderness. We've been that for too long and I for one am tired of it.

    Aren't income taxes a relatively recent (note, relatively) twist on generation of revenue for the federal government? The original Constitution could not have required public disclosure by candidates since there was no income tax back then.

    It took Amendment 16 in 1913 to start it. I checked Amendment XVI and it says that the government has the power to levy taxes, but it says nothing about Presidential candidates, or anyone else for that matter, being required to make them public.

    Every time these ‘Rats pull something like this, it gains Trump more support. They still can’t seem to grasp that this is the very reason Trump beat Hillary the last time out.

    Remember that a lot of these snowflakes are GenZ and Millennial-GenZ crossovers who have only known, as voters, Barack Obama’s two terms. So they can't fathom losing an election. They can't deal with the concept that many others would disagree with their views. In a lot of ways, they are still children, emotionally and intellectually. That's why they act out and lash out with such hostility against those who disagree with them. Their emotional development has been stunted and just isn't capable of dealing with a complex (i.e., one in which others have different viewpoints) world.

    Okay, I’m ready and loaded for bear to hit the voting booth and vote for Trump supporters down the line. Nobody has asked me about it. I haven’t been polled by anyone. But that doesn’t matter. We’re out here, and like in ‘16 our votes will still count.

    No matter how 2018 turns out, it should be clear that both Rosenslime and Sessions are the DC establishment’s Terminal Men. Win or lose in 2018, Trump will have a free hand to clean house, which he should do before 2020 rolls around.

    Good question. Are not all weapons, by definition, assault weapons? I mean, if they didn’t assault, even for defensive purposes, they wouldn’t be much good as weapons. And that includes not only guns, but knives, spears, arrows, clubs, rocks, fists, feet, elbows, knees, head butts, chemicals, fire, acoustic, lasers, and any number of other things.

    Let North Korea actually begin to follow through on their commitment and then award the medals.

    You're right about that. This is just the first step. Establish some kind of initial level of rapport and build on that. It may take awhile, but if Kim is serious about this, he'll end up gaining yardage on various fronts.

    And none of us should really spend any time with the Nobel thing. They essentially delegitimized the thing when they gave it to Obama for no other reason that to suck up to their leftist messiah.

    Well, if they don’t like it, they can step into the breach and pick up more of the load for themselves. If they think they are so strong and capable, show us by doing the things for yourself that we have been doing (for too long). We’ll stand with you as allies, but we won’t be the host if you’re going to be a parasite.

    It’s worse than that. We don’t have an operational, man-rated launch vehicle that could duplicate Alan Shepard’s suborbital hop in 1961. Now we have to pay the Russkies millions to use their vehicles as taxis to orbit.

    The thing about Koufax was that he tended to telegraph his pitches so batters could infer that the next pitch was a fastball or a breaking ball. Koufax would add an extra “hitch” in his windup if it was a curveball coming. Some said he also telegraphed his next pitch by the angle of his elbows when he put his hand and ball into his glove on his windup. But it didn't matter because his pitches were essentially unhittable most of the time anyway.
