Re: Best of Trump, Worst of Trump

Report of Trump ridiculing a disabled person: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PX9reO3QnUA&pbjreload=101 This was always the incident that convinced me it would be impossible to support Trump. It is beyond insensitive. On this mainly right-wing forum, maybe one person can justify Trump's mockery? Tr...

Re: Abortion & Ahimsa

If you are a religious person who believes in nonviolence, you might need to reject the radical left for supporting unrestricted, taxpayer-funded abortion and political violence while calling for the removal of all religion in public life.

Re: Minneapolis is burning

Greetings, Under totalitarian regimes, you don't have a right to due process. And what makes you think anyone will get "due process", when even at the level of the Supreme Court, roughly half the judges are activists, and the other half the judges are constitutionalists? "Luck of the draw" is hardl...

Re: Minneapolis is burning

Greetings, According to the article, the BLM mural had a permit. If people don't like that, they should vote the city government out rather than taking the law into their own hands. Sure, but is it a "hate crime"? Is merely disagreeing with the hard-left and their methods a "hate crime"? Apparently...

Re: Minneapolis is burning

Greetings Presto, All I want is equal opportunity and equal protection under the law for people of all races and ethnicities, rather than rioting in the streets and government policies like affirmative action that favor one race over another. I want us all to get along together, regardless of race ...

Re: Blaire White's Youtube Channel

I have never heard anything said by Blaire White that sounded unreasonable. Underage people should not be getting irreversible gender transition therapy. Candidates for gender transition therapy should be screened for serious mental illness before being okayed for irreversible therapy. Trans people ...

Re: The cost of houses of worship

Re: The GOP

Greetings, ... if he can't contain the far left. From what you have seen, do you believe he can? :candle: No, but Obama did for the most part. Either way, it's shameful that Biden, as a professed Catholic, flip-flopped on the Hyde amendment after decades of supporting it just to win the primaries.

Re: The GOP

Record number of GOP women win House primaries

A record 55 Republican women have won their House primaries this year, breaking the previous high of 53 set in 2004, according to the Center for American Women in Politics at Rutgers. That's, in part, because of the surge in GOP women running. More than 220 Republican women have filed to run for th...

Re: The GOP

Why was it okay for Obama and Bernie to speak at Mt. Rushmore, but racist for Trump to do the same thing? I am getting tired of the left and the mainstream media's hypocrisy.

Re: Covid

If Democrats are so much better than Trump on the Coronavirus, why did Andrew Cuomo deliberately send infected patients back to nursing homes, causing New York to be the worst state for the virus?

Re: Minneapolis is burning

Greetings, Why is it only okay to point out that black-on-black crime is as bad of a problem as police brutality when a black Democrat says it? Because any worldview based on race is racist. :candle: Please keep in mind that Atlanta's mayor is perhaps only saying this due to an uptick in violent cr...

Re: Minneapolis is burning

Here's another question. Why are BLM protesters chanting "Black trans lives matter," when so many black transwomen are, apparently, the victims of black men? From what I've heard, homophobia and transphobia are common in the black community. I am honestly sorry if I am mistaken about this.

Re: Minneapolis is burning

Perhaps Trump would have an easier time winning the election if he stopped making stupid tweets and just let the left do its own dumb thing. If this election were a referendum on the left and its craziness, Trump would win.
