    Ted Cruz let this google executive have it. Conservatives are being targeted by Google and he wasn't going to let her off the hook.

    I was ambivalent about the parade today until I turned on the news and see who whined about it. Turns out they are the same folks who whine about Trump's very existence on EVERY issue.

    Therefore, looking forward to it! If the Left hates it, it MUST have value...

    “Most Americans are not rigidly partisan and do not feel well represented by either of the two major parties. In fact, the parties have become more partisan in part because they are catering to fewer people, as Americans are rejecting party affiliation in record numbers."

    He nailed this.

    The partIES have not become more partisan

    A SINGLE party has become more partisan

    If anything, republicans have become more “progressive”.

    Yeah, but what is hilarious is that the folks who want socialized medicine, reparations, and the Green New Deal ALSO say it is a waste of money.

    8 year olds talk about money...

    I don’t think that is his point. With Obama and now Trump, neither side is concerned with getting anything done for the good of the country, they’re only concerned with how they can make things look politically.

    We’re looking at 8 of the last 12 years having a do nothing Congress. And both sides are guilty. Neither side wants to cross the aisle to work for the people. They’re beholden to their parties first and foremost and then their special interest that supports them. Shit...one and two are likely the same damn thing. I grew up hearing about Reagan and Tip O’Neill working together despite having very different principles and philosophies. The idea that politics is a service career is now a farce. The field only attracts megalomaniacs today. Sad. No dirtier word in this world than the word “politician”.

    “Getting anything done for the good of the country”

    Again. I think you are mistaken

    Economic growth and improvement gets alot done
    A wall is getting something done

    Im not an advocate for all of trumps actions

    But ill remember the party that fought against common sense measures just because they were trying to obstruct the president’s agenda

    This mess at the border, the one that democrats told us didnt exist initially, might have been avoided with a physical barrier that disuades people from attempting to cross

    Certainly if may have disuaded those people from all over the world who flew to mexico to walk across our border

    Were it not for democrats and their sanctuary cities, perhaps we may have not baited them here,

    And now, now that its all come to head, democtats are criticizing because of overcrowding in our border facilities

    REALLY???!!!

    As the resident Never Trumper, I have no problem with it. While unnecessary, and certainly just another example of his narcissism, I think it’s kind of neat.

    I approve.

    Nah this one offered the opinion that the military should never be politicized and it provides the viewpoint of a couple of former military that don’t like this because it has the feel of a campaign event with VIP seats being given out to important donors to Trump’s re-election. There’s actually numerous angles in which you can come at this event.

    I didn’t write the article. I don’t know the traditions of the military. As we established yesterday, I don’t buy the mythology and hero worship. I just know that the 4th of July isn’t a holiday that is about the military. I also know that James Mattis slow rolled Trump’s desire to do this when he wanted it on Veteran’s Day. I’ve been told by many here that Mad Dog Mattis is a soldier’s soldier. Is he wrong in his instincts to want to avoid staging an event that flexes military muscle like that which we see displayed by totalitarian regimes?


    You guys have won me over though. Today I’ll be watching the big event of Hate Week. I’m hoping to scream at some Goldstein’s. Maybe Big Brother will change our enemy from Eurasia to Eastasia. I hope not though. I might get called into work at the Ministry of Truth so I can alter the past making it look like Eastasia was always our enemy.

    I’m not talking about the population, which is more moderate, but the leaders. Politicians? No way.

    Gay Marriage: Only because the SC said so. Name one Pub who pushed for it.
    Marijuana? Liberal states lead the way. Still a no go in conservative states.
    Abortion? Name one pro choice Pub (nonfemale)

    Supreme Court Justices: both sides hyper partisan
    Border security
    Immigration
    Negotiating with Iran/ NK.
    Taxation

    Everyone aligns with or against the party, whatever the issue. No spirit of cooperation or compromise.

    Good for you. I got that out of my system from election night 2016 to the inauguration in 2017. That really doesn’t do it for me anymore. Especially when I’m weighing my country doing what Hitler Stalin and NK do/did vs an image in my head if crying liberals. But different strokes for different folks.
