What are the issues that matter to you that aren't being discussed? I keep hearing about issues issues issues in statements like that but it's such bullshit because the person complaining never talks about these "issues" at all either.

I suppose I posted my initial grumble about Trump's golfing, etc. because it rankled with me as an example of hypocrisy. I'm aware my posts aren't going to solve anything, but media attention can improve politicians' conduct, can't it?

Issues that do matter? Yes, I'm more than happy to move on to those - but on another day if that's ok. It's bedtime where I live.
Media attention can slightly improve a politician's conduct but Trump isn't a regular politician so I don't think it's going to help. Also the media is doing it all wrong. I saw this video from Vox where they pretty much showed that satire comedians are doing it better and calling BS on stupid things instead of actually entertaining the BS and then debating over it.

I do that all the time. Usually it's a hyphen or an underscore that's missing. That's how I knew how to fix it.

NADP pipeline
New EPA restrictions
Pissing in the face of internet privacy
That punchline of a budget, what it cuts and the unnecessary military increases
High civilian casualties across seas
Abortion restrictions
Press gag

But what really matters is
He tweeted something
He spent some money on golf
He doesn't have the same overheightened respect for archaic forms of decorum as establishment politicians
He was a little bit of a mean guy

You don't normally do that anyways? Every time I close my browser my history goes with it.

Thank you, some of these have been mentioned in this thread before too.
I'd like to hear DWV's concerns about what issues bother him the most.

I meant to make a thread about DAPL awhile ago but just never got around to it. There were definitely some conflicting views on it.
