This is why Frown mocks you. That's not an answer.

In case you didn't notice, I don't follow politics. I pop my head in here every once in a while in a lazy attempt to have other people keep me informed. It was a legitimate question, and all you gave was a stupid answer.

I certainly agree to that when it comes to entertainment, fashion, etc. In the natural world, appearance and reality are intimately related. The shape of foods, our natural affection for chubby faces and big eyes (babies!), etc.

The problem, and it's not unique to Trump - he's just an out-sized offender, is when you substitute appearance for policy. The wall is a perfect example. The appearance of the wall riles up his crowds. 'It'll be huge and won't cost you a cent!' Cue cheering and nativist chanting. But the policy behind this construction project is messy, costly, time-consuming, and, depending on who you listen to, likely to be harmful to our economy.

heavy.com
Politifact
The Economist

And you can always google the well-researched (and I think hilarious) John Oliver breakdown of the wall's cost.

Clinton says she was gone for the 'red line' in Syria incident | PolitiFact



Your "unwillingness for Russian diplomacy" response is too stupid to address.

Did I miss something or did Clinton completely avoid the question of whether or not she would shoot down Russian jets?

In the ideal scenario, I'd like to see us go to war with Russia and start up World War 3.

Trump would truly go down in the history books for being part of that.

Either that or to see Trump get impeached for treason and all of his sketchy ethics issues that he has going on.

I really want to see the war scenario happen though. So I could get to do a big "told you so" to the idiots that thought with Hillary we would be going to war and thought there wasn't a chance of Trump doing the same thing.

I'm going to assume you of course do not mean that.

As I noted before, Russia's military is pretty gutted since the breakup of the Soviet Union. They simply do not have the money to support it. They are planning on eliminating a half a million troops this year. ****, Israel could kick Russia's ass in a war, never mind the US with its allies.

Clinton's chest puffing and talk of negotiation over safe zones in Syria is what's called "diplomacy". Look it up.

Trump wanting to circle jerk with Putin is the absolute worst way to go. Putin's playing him like a banjo. Tillerson as Secretary of State? Really? That sure played right into Putin's hands.

Tell me this doesn't stink:

Never mind. BENGHAZI!!!!!!!!!

Don't Russia still have nuclear capabilities? If so, it doesn't matter how many ground troops or what an air force they have, no?

This is about as funny as saying Trump is orange. And obviously I don't give a sh*t, because it wasn't an issue.

You gotta be a certain kind of special to think he wasn't making fun of the guy's disability.


Ol’ Qwerty Bastard 01-10-2017 03:54 PM

I'm not on one side or the other but this adds some perspective I guess or whatever
