quote-The president has weakness so does congress.

Rawpracticalist besides the president having weakness,
He is a rascist that needs to be jailed for the deaths he has incited
The baby boy is unstable- most mental health experts see the danger.
Millions of Americans see the danger.
Yes blaming is a waste of time, stop the blame and build a fire under his rascist ass is what needs to be done.
Its past time to put the 25 admendment into action.
The congress only cares about their money and to hell with the rest of population.
Good nazis, good kluckers, I dont think so!
familys that have raised chlidren with any morals should be out in the streets!
Our president has weakness is to watered down, Trump is a Klucker.
Im not so much into the blame game but Trump should be held acountable
for the murders he has incited. And the fact he undermines the laws of the land by pardoning asses like that AZ sherriff.
A waste of time to complain maybe with a hard core fascist.
Im afraid its just a little more than a weak president and a spineless congress of cowards.

Shakira

"No one living in this century should stand behind so much ignorance." — Shakira in a tweet just a few weeks after Trump characterized Mexican immigrants to the US as "rapists" and criminals.

I was not talking about a specific president just commenting on your story.

But people were not forced to vote a certain way.

The people have the power to take down a president
who no longer pursue their interests (Like in the French Revolution and many others)

Rawpracticalist,that quote is painfuly true!


Sorry, Folks, But Donald Trump Is Everything We Deserve



We pretend we don’t, but we do.

The main reason (besides the grinding repetition) why I can’t bear to watch comedians do their self-congratulatory Donald Trump shtick is that their phony indignation is based on the premise that this guy is somehow unworthy of being our president, which is ludicrous. Trump is not only worthy of being president, he’s perfect for it.

Consider: The U.S. is, first and foremost, a nation of dedicated consumers. The world knows this, we know this, and Trump knows this. Indeed, there’s nothing we Americans won’t consume if it's properly advertised and promoted. And say what you will about Trump, but the man is, first and foremost, an accomplished salesman and promoter.

"We pretend to be surprised that we have elected a shallow, dishonest, narcissistic bully as our president."

Consider: We Americans don’t form long queues outside of poetry or literature readings. There’s no shame in that. We simply aren’t a nation of poetry lovers. But we do form long queues outside of Best Buy, beginning at midnight, waiting for the store to open so we can purchase the newest technology. That’s because we’re a nation addicted to buying stuff on sale. And Trump is a brilliant salesman.

Consider: We idolize rich people. Because that seems vaguely and uncomfortably "unchristian," we pretend we don’t, but we do. We tell our kids that money "isn't everything," but we don’t even believe it ourselves. We are in awe of Wall Street because Wall Street is rich. And Trump is rich.

Consider: We idolize TV celebrities, and Trump was a TV celebrity. He had his own show. We idolize glamour, and the Trumps are glamorous. Wife Melania and daughter Ivanka are exotic beauties. Granted, that is more a tribute to recent advances in plastic surgery than the generosity of Mother Nature, but exotic beauties nonetheless. And as much as we pretend to respect "authenticity," we don’t. Plastic is good.
Consider: Unlike much of the world, we Americans despise intellectuals. We pretend we don’t, but we do. We hate know-it-alls, we hate smarty-pants media types, and we hate "deep thinkers." We don’t want to be reminded of how ignorant we are. We like brevity and plain talk. We like certitude. We hate nuance, ambiguity, and self-doubt. Arguably, not counting Ronald Reagan, Trump is the most anti-intellectual president since Andrew Jackson.

Consider: We Americans respect muscle, strength and power, which is to say, we prefer war to peace. We pretend we don’t, but we do. If that weren’t the case, our defense budget wouldn’t be so absurdly bloated, and we wouldn’t have been engaged in all the military adventurism that has defined us since the end of World War II.

Consider: We Americans are a narcissistic people. We pretend we aren’t, but we are. We don’t have to be tied down and water-boarded to blurt out the fact that we think we’re the greatest country in the world. Not only the greatest country in the world, but the greatest country in the history of the world. If that ain’t narcissism, what is it?

And yet, for all this, we pretend to be surprised that we have elected a shallow, dishonest, narcissistic bully as our president? As Kurt Vonnegut wrote in Mother Night, "We are what we pretend to be. So we must be careful about what we pretend to be."

Jennifer, I dont think its a lot of self hating white people around these days
But there is a small goup of people in this country who are white, Neo nazis,
And that Kooky Klucken Klan ghost that just wont die, just smells that way!
I know there are a lot of white folks who are embarresed by these white supremist and pin head skin head neos, Are these the folks you refer to as self hating white peole?
This small group of sickies stinks the whole planet up.
They are the same cancer as a Bin laden,
Trump is a cancer and we need to go with 25th Admendment.
Our presidents father Fred was a member of the KKK and arested at a rally in NYC where three people died. self hating white people Hum?

On the subject of more taxes, Yes Jennifer Im all for it, By doing so we slow the sales at walmart, that will keep more us dollars in country instead of going to back to China on empty cargo container ships
then some of the glut dollars may find a way back to us to counter tax increse.



There Is No Such Thing as Race



In 1950, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) issued a statement asserting that all humans belong to the same species and that “race” is not a biological reality but a myth. This was a summary of the findings of an international panel of anthropologists, geneticists, sociologists, and psychologists.

A great deal of evidence had accumulated by that time to support this conclusion, and the scientists involved were those who were conducting research and were most knowledgeable about the topic of human variation. Since that time similar statements have been published by the American Anthropological Association and the American Association of Physical Anthropologists, and an enormous amount of modern scientific data has been gathered to justify this conclusion.

Today the vast majority of those involved in research on human variation would agree that biological races do not exist among humans. Among those who study the subject, who use and accept modern scientific techniques and logic, this scientific fact is as valid and true as the fact that the earth is round and revolves around the sun

People have both good and bad sides. Obviously he did too. People on this forum too. When we focus on the good side, we help each other along.

Dick was also an entertainer by feeding juicy conspiracy theories such as:

Dick Gregory - "There Are Two Donald Trumps"
[www.youtube.com]

Many people have jumped in on the conspiracy theory bandwagon because they know people want to be entertained.

Yes, all humans have good and bad points. Too easy to focus on bad points, and doing that gets tiring after a while because everyone does that. I feel better when l focus on a person's good points, because focusing on bad points is a waste of emotion because it doesn't change anything. The only way to change a person's bad points is for the person themselves to awaken to it and change it, so why focus on bad points if it isn't going to achieve anything.

So when someone does something really bad, why focus on that? Why not think about something else that can make positive change instead. You can't force someone to change a bad heart, so lets think about things we can change for the better.

Wining about the government and monsanto isn't going to help either. Lets change our own hearts first!
