    now see what kaepernick started, now people are using a flag as toilet paper

    I'm just pointing out what he has said. Would you like some checkable sources? It seems that what Trump says about gun control depends on who he's talking to, and what he's looking to sell.

    Trump: Obama didn't call families of fallen U.S. troops

    Barbarian observes: In fact, Kelly didn't dispute what the family said. He just made a personal attack on Wilson. Give him credit for not lying about it. But he made it much worse for himself and Trump by attacking her character. Reality does matter to me... Kelly called Rep. Frederica Wilson...

    Civil rights movement. Opposed the Patriot Act. Put an end to racially-motivated prison sentencing. Right to vote for everyone, not just land holders. "One man, one vote." movement that outlawed unequal voting districts. Overturned prohibition. Lawsuits against preventing children from...

    General Kelly sets things straight

    Firefighters and police, EMTs, and E.R. workers are no less outstanding people than troops. These men and women all go through a lot of danger and mental stress to help others. Everyone who does this, (and I left out dozens of similar occupations) fit in that "top 1%."

    Trump Nominee to Fight Opioid Crisis Withdraws Because He Helped Create Opioid Crisis

    The "war on drugs" got quickly re-directed to a modern form of chattel slavery. People, mostly minorities because the law focused on a form of cocaine favored by minorities, were given long stretches of time in private prisons, where they were put to work making money for the private companies...

    General Kelly sets things straight

    Yes, I think it's a bad idea to go after Trump when he tries to do something right. He wasn't intentionally insulting, he obviously took something Kelly said and tried to weave it into a comforting statement. And it was awful. But he was trying to do something right, and he should get...

    Trump: Obama didn't call families of fallen U.S. troops

    If males wear bright yellow hats with big floppy brims where you live, be careful if any of them wink at you.

    Trump: Obama didn't call families of fallen U.S. troops

    As I pointed out, Kelly didn't deny anything she said. He just did a desultory personal attack. It damaged him far more than it damaged her. The more Trump and his supporters thrash and foam about it, the worse it gets for him.

    Trump: Obama didn't call families of fallen U.S. troops

    Barbarian observes: I've praised Trump for a number of things he's done. When he backed off on some of his promises that would have been harmful to America. At that time, I speculated that he might turn out to be a pretty good president after all. When he warned Syria about using poison...

    In fact, Kelly didn't dispute what the family said. He just made a personal attack on Wilson. Give him credit for not lying about it. But he made it much worse for himself and Trump by attacking her character. The WH cover story... "They are lying, all of them." Only Kelly avoided...

    Trump: Obama didn't call families of fallen U.S. troops

    Should have been. I think Trump meant well; he's just not very good at communicating sympathy. If he had done what Bush did, let it go, and move on, it wouldn't be an issue now. Instead, he tried to make an issue of it, and lied about what he said, not knowing that Wilson was a friend of...

    Trump: Obama didn't call families of fallen U.S. troops

    First, none of the other people in the room remember her saying that. Second, if she did, it would be the truth. The CIA captured a leader of the attack and he told people that it was in revenge for that video. Would you like me to show you, again?

    Trump: Obama didn't call families of fallen U.S. troops

    The fact is, the family of that soldier confirmed what Wilson said. So no point in claiming otherwise.

    Trump: Obama didn't call families of fallen U.S. troops

    It's not hard to understand. I've praised Trump when he did something right. I've criticized him when he's messed up. You, on the other hand, have been unrelentingly angry and critical of Clinton and Obama, and never praise them. Do you think no one notices? remember the parable about...

    General Kelly sets things straight

    She just pointed out the fact. His contact with the family of that soldier went badly and they were insulted. I don't think he meant it, but it was still badly done.
