"Whatever. The left will always see events the way they want to see them - regardless of the facts.."

Shep, you know that facts have a well-known liberal bias. Coming from a fan of the anti-science party, your comment doesn't mean much. BTW, how's the churning business these days? Better with this rally, no?

I don't have to look up IP addresses. Post locations appear magically on my admin site screen. I just found it interesting that in a story about five different groups of people who are concerned about Trump's presidency, a person posting from Great Britain chose only to focus on and trash immigrants. And you're still anonymous, buttercup.

Thank for the link Bruce! Of course you would pull something from another Lib newspaper like the Flyer. News Communications, Inc is 100% Lib in NY.

Re: “Pin and Bear It

And let's don't overlook Trump bad-mouthing Pharma for high drug prices and talking about (threatening) to make them lower prices on drugs. When Hillary does it it's Socialism, when Trump does it it's business negotiating.
Very little about this pompous jackass is anything Ronald Reagan would have supported. It only proves republicans don't have principles, except for doing anything and saying anything to gain and keep power.

Re: “Pin and Bear It

I've gotta sign off on @charlieepps comment.

Axiomatically, the truth is ugly.

Axiomatically, the truth hurts.

If you are not saying ugly, hurtful things, what you are saying doesn't sound like truth.

Conversely, if what you are saying is ugly and hurtful, even if it isn't truth, it's going to carry a lot more truthiness to a non discerning audience than statements that are not ugly and hurtful.

Surgeons do ugly, hurtful things to people all the time, but surgeons themselves are one of the highest forms of good that exist. There's nothing pretty about a bad diagnosis requiring surgery, but it's best to cut out the cancer than let it kill you.

Truth by definition is objective; emotions have no place in rational discussion. In our case, it is trumped up drama that is the cancer.

Bruce,

On the one hand, keep talking dirty. It drives me crazy, Tish. On the other hand, it's pretty creepy that you are apparently looking up the IP addresses of commenters. That's a slippery slope. Next people who express opinions contra to your uber liberal agenda might find themselves in the basement of Bruce Manor being "reeducated."

But the good news is that I am sure you would let those being reeducated use whichever bathroom they prefer. Thanks, Asshat, for proving what hypocrites liberals are and also the value of anonymity.

More revisionist horse-puckey. Plenty of links in here to educate yourself with about the reaction to Obama's election. http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/pres…

Re: “"I Love You Too, America": Memphians Prep for Life Under Trump

Funny how the past 2 elections there wasn't anything written from those that voted and lost those elections to Obama. "WE" that voted against him didn't take to the streets to burn down businesses nor did we mail it in for work or school, "WE" just went on with life because the American people had voted and he won. Now after 8 years of Socialism and it not working the American people have once again gone in different direction with Trump. Not saying I agree with everything he's doing but give him a chance to pull the Country up to where "WE ALL" have a chance at a better life. But it's articles like these many weeks later that continue to stir the pot and not let people get on with their lives.

Re: “"I Love You Too, America": Memphians Prep for Life Under Trump

SOSDD from the bleeding hearted, empty headed liberals of the Memphis Flyer. I wish they had this much conviction and passion for the U.S. Citizens and legal residents who are harmed by illegal immigration. Now that would be a story worth covering. But that would also require much more journalistic integrity than this little rag of a paper has ever been able to muster.

Instead, the Flyer keeps repeating the same tired, and at best, half-true sob stories of how these wonderful, innocent, for all practical purposes -- angels on earth -- are being persecuted by our wicked politicians and immigration laws. Utter rubbish!!!

There is never any discussion of personal responsibility for this immoral and illegal activity which harms truly innocent people. There are only vague references to parents who allegedly brought their children kicking and screaming into this country. Where are the parents? Surely, someone should be held responsible.

Even the children who may have been brought here illegally but are now adults should be held responsible for their own actions at a certain point. Other than trying to hide behind equally illegal Executive Orders, what have these children who are now adults done to try to get legal?? The answer is usually nothing.

What these amnesty for illegals puff pieces never get around to mentioning is that what they really want -- what they are really advocating for -- is a free ticket for people who don't deserve it.

Re: “"I Love You Too, America": Memphians Prep for Life Under Trump

Actually, Shep, your point is better made by saying "people should only feel the way I feel about things. Other points of view are invalid because they're not like mine."

Re: “"I Love You Too, America": Memphians Prep for Life Under Trump

The scary part of a Trump presidency is not a Republican vs. Democrat issue. Fear comes in to play because of the racist/xenophobic/sexist things he has done and said. Fear comes in because of his quick (negative) reactions/hot temper. Fear comes in when he surrounds himself with politicians that have a track record of working against women's rights/immigrants' rights/LGBTQ+ rights. There are plenty of things to fear. Hopefully, these fears will be all for naught... But to dismiss the feelings of anyone who was marginalized by Trump's campaign? Well, that's just plain rude.

The comment "A white man told you to chill, so you best chill." makes my point: Everything doesn't have to be seen through the prisim of racism. I am speakiing as human being, as a American.

Re: “Pin and Bear It

Only Nixon could go to China, and apparently only Trump can propose running deficits that would make the GOP shit its pants if a Democrat did it. IOKIYAR.
