    Hopefully he will be able to right the ship & clean the garbage out of Washington & also repair the damage Obama has done for the last 8 years. That is what is awesome. He is not part of the establishment.

    I'll keep a weary eye on things.. Things have to change here around the state. Change really can't be bad here and there.

    Trump signed an executive order that states that the United States has offically withdrawn from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

    Yep like it or not he's wasting no time doing the things he said he would do.... He also reinstated the ban on federal funding for international abortions, which isn't surprising it gets reinstated or removed depending on the party in control.

    Yep and some voted to repeal Obamacare when Obama was in office, those same senators voted not to repeal now that it would actually get signed into law..... window dressing at it's best/worst right there. Just goes to show you all politicians have an agenda: too keep their power! Like it or not it's why Trump won, people are fed up with politicians. Fact is if the Dems had run someone with little to no political experience they would have probably won no matter what their agenda, majority are just sick and tired of politics

    Folks,
    I'm not a Trump fan at all but I'm also certainly not an Obama fan. But I couldn't stop LMAO at this guy, a spot on Obama impersonator repeating some very well-known Trump lines in a serious manner on Bill Maher's show. This is one of the funniest things I've heard in years. I'm putting this out there for pure entertainment rather than to take sides:

    Well I don't know why I came here tonight,
    I got the feeling that something ain't right,
    I'm so scared in case I fall off my chair,
    And I'm wondering how I'll get down the stairs,
    Clowns to the left of me,
    Jokers to the right, here I am,
    Stuck in the middle with you.

    Two wrongs never make a right, but the way this has been handled is embarrassing. You have to call it like it is, and not hide from doing so.

    So just to play devil's advocate here and to stir the political pot...... :)

    I'm no Trump fan (although I personally approve of some of his agenda, getting Gorsuch to the SCOTUS a win imo) and I know Trump is not the best orator by a long shot but what did he do wrong over the weekend? He called out hate groups, sure he said both sides, which is not entirely incorrect. He came out Monday I believe and named the groups by name which obviously wasn't enough... As I recall Obama never called out groups on the left, for example BLM, in fact he invited it's leader to the White House. Shouldn't all violence, all hate groups regardless of their political affiliation or beliefs be called out?
    Not to mention I think it's funny that Neo-Nazi groups are somehow "connected" to conservatives, last time I checked they are Hitler supporters (socialist), they despise Jews (similar to radical Islamic terrorist who by the way if you call them that your a racist), they are communist supporters which is the exact opposite of conservatism and I assure you someone will read my comments and thank that I'm sympathizing with the white supremacy groups which I am not.

    Oh and while I'm at it why is Nationalism so bad, why has this been connected to racism now.... Nationalist are people of all race, religions, backgrounds, etc that have a love for their country, it's offensive to me as a conservative, white male, that every day I have to hear that conservatives are racist. That somehow or another because I have conservative views I "relate" to the despots of the world that spew hatred and violence such as those white supremacy groups did over the weekend.

    All hatred needs to be called out and all violence, no matter the cause, must not be tolerated

    Over at the political board for American, I'm constantly called "TeenNazi" along with other insults such as self-hating because I'm a non-white person who dares to voice right-wing and nationalist views.

    I haven't posted at American in over 2 years and likely will never again. I'm not just talking about the political side. Their wx forum is the only one I've ever decided to completely stop posting at since I started on the Prodigy wx forum in the early 1990s,

    I've seen the absolutely nasty treatment you've received in their political forum. The best word to describe that forum: nauseating. If you're not lock step with the heavily dominating ultra liberals there, you're treated like crap. Opposing views aren't tolerated, which means they're hypocritical.

    Over there they rightfully speak out about bigotry. Yet, they're bigots, themselves, and therefore, hypocrites. Whites (especially males), older people, younger people like you (calling you an ignorant "kid" or "teenager"...why is that tolerated?), conservatives, Republicans, and even moderates and independents are demonized there as groups. They constantly talk about generalizing being terrible and yet they do just that with regard to the groups they don't support..."white privilege", "mansplaining", etc.! There's one poster there who calls many who oppose her sexists.. Yet, she refers to "mansplaining" all the time and says that it isn't possible to be a sexist against males or a racist against whites because they're "in power". How convenient! Almost everything they talk about regards one's identity. Most of the moderators are biased liberal and don't treat conservatives equally. (I'm moderately conservative overall).

    The reason they're dominated by liberals there: a large portion of the members are in the NE US and are Millenials, which are two demographics heavily favoring liberals.

    ***Edit: Simeon, I added a comment above regarding them picking on you because of you being a teenager. Also, I have nothing against someone just because they're liberal or even socialist. Even I have a few liberal views. And I do have liberal friends and relatives and get along very well. But I do have a lot against someone who's liberal and spews hatred against moderates and conservatives as a group. The same goes for conservatives doing likewise to liberals.

    Yeah, I don't have any hatred for people just because of their political affiliation. In fact lot of my friends and family members are to the left of me and I don't mind at all.

    Also, I was given the "liar" tag and five-posted just because I made a joke post lol.

    I've heard the political section over on AmWx is not "user friendly" to put it lightly. I've never read or posted in it in all my 6 1/2 years of being a member there. I'm a black, almost 25 year old male Bernie-crat. I have a feeling my political views won't be liked by many over there. lol

    It's unfortunate people from all political sides make so much unnecessary noise because there's a lot of policy ideas most Americans actually agree on, but it just gets lost in translation.

    It's just unfortunate that no matter who you are are what your bent is, that some folks want to castigate you ... :(

    They had to break it off itnto it's own thing, lol. It gets rowdy! They're going to end up with a bigger success than their weather forum with it I would assume.
