• What happened?

    From aaron thomas@1:123/525 to All on Thursday, August 01, 2019 18:26:44
    This question is for anyone who has an answer they feel strongly about:

    Why did liberals regret Trump's victory in 2016?

    If Obama had lost to Romney in 2012, would that have ruined something for the liberals?

    Obama was fortunate enough to have a good autopilot system engaged throughout his presidency; he wasn't bothered by nuclear threat, ISIS, caging children,
    or any of these things that cause Trump so much grief. He winged it well and even found time to diss the handicapped on late night TV.

    Democrats have lost presidential elections to Republicans before, obviously.
    So why now is it such a huge disastrous loss with the man who they racistly call "the orange one?"

    I'm sure Hillary was gonna wing things too; she knows right where the
    autopilot button is in the Oval Office.. So what other button were the democrats hoping she was gonna press??

    What makes liberals wealthy? And which voting topics were up for discussion
    in the past 4 years? Or maybe the upcoming 4 years? I bet there's a correlation, but I haven't pinpointed it yet.

    One thing that's for sure is that people get angry when people cost them
    money.

    This question is for anyone who has an answer they feel strongly
    about:
    Why did liberals regret Trump's victory in 2016?

    For starters, because he lied to the American people, and continues to
    lie during office (last count was 10,000).

    And then, the way that he is tearing up relations with allies and
    hob-nobing with totalitarian dictators who he sees as role models.

    Next, because he is filling jobs with people who are not qualified, and
    in some cases bordering on criminality.

    And then, the way that he is down playing the advice of the intelligence community -- taking the word of Putin that Russia did not interfere in
    our election over the evidence given to him by multiple agencies.

    Finally, the way that he is spreading hate and divisiveness -- embolding
    white nationalists and other fringe groups.

    Is that enough for you?

    That's quite enough, PUSU 10,000 is a exaggeration.
    Honestly. I do not think that any list of such allegations is accurate or has any truth within such a list.

    And then, the way that he is tearing up relations with allies and hob-nobing with totalitarian dictators who he sees as role models.

    Next, because he is filling jobs with people who are not qualified, and
    in some cases bordering on criminality.

    Who are you, to suggest that they are qualified or not?
    You're on the left and so are people like pencil neck Adam Schiff and others. POTUS has been a successful to spite your party trying to stand in his way.

    And then, the way that he is down playing the advice of the intelligence community -- taking the word of Putin that Russia did not interfere in
    our election over the evidence given to him by multiple agencies.

    Finally, the way that he is spreading hate and divisiveness -- embolding white nationalists and other fringe groups.

    Just because you say these things, does not make them true or valid.

    Why?

    because Dale,the people on the right can see right through the things coming from the left as if they were transparent clear cellophane.

    It is not "supposedly". He did all of it and more. Much of it was done
    even while he was still campaigning.

    It is not because he is a white male, but the fact that he denigrates
    anyone who is not a white male is another factor. His talk has
    contributed to white nationalistic hate crimes. The shooter in El Paso
    quoted him directly as part of the justification for what was done

    After all the years of America paying the defense bills of countries who weren't paying their share; trump demanded they start paying!


    All the money we've poured into places like Mexico and some other countries south of our southern border, its time they stop allowing the free flow of illegal border crossers coming through their countries!


    All the drugs that pour across the Mexican border, its about time we stop
    being nice to Mexico. They (Mexico) could do a lot more to stop it.


    hob-nobing with totalitarian dictators who he sees as role models.


    How much you wanna bet this is that `Putin' crap again!


    Next, because he is filling jobs with people who are not qualified, and DS>in some cases bordering on criminality.


    There are more people working now than in many years! More blacks, hispanics, asians, women than ever before!


    And then, the way that he is down playing the advice of the intelligence DS>community --


    If you look at some of the `intelligence' community who comprised a large part of the `deep state'....you gotta wonder how any of them can be believed. (And when Shipp throws a comeback on that I'll give you a real good illustration of what I mean on it) Some of them probably belong in jail.


    taking the word of Putin that Russia did not interfere in
    our election over the evidence given to him by multiple agencies.


    `Nobody' takes Putin's word on anything!


    Finally, the way that he is spreading hate and divisiveness -- embolding DS>white nationalists and other fringe groups.


    He's doing no such thing. Notice how they conveniently ignore the hatred and violence of olutfits like Black Lives Matter....Antifa.....and the violent prone `demonstrators' who gathered at Mitch McConnell's home shouting curses and threats?


    Is that enough for you?

    See.....Trump wasn't supposed to win. Hillary was supposed to win in a walk. Comey would still be FBI director....Brennan and the other guy (Clapper?)
    would still be running things in `intelligence' .....we'd be having rosy days and party-time nights....and everything would be great in a `democrat' sort of way.


    But Trump won in probably the biggest national election upset ever, and all
    the democrats' rosy notions of how Hillary'd be running things...handing out largess here and there....went down the tubes.


    And its been one big two year attack on him since he won the election.


    I was born just before Pearl Harbor, and I've never seen any president in my lifetime attacked so steadily as Trump has been since election night. He's
    been under constant democrat attack from the start. Not even Nixon got the treatment Trump is getting from the democrats.


    And make no mistake....the democrats don't care if they ruin the country or flood it with illegals in their efforts to `get Trump'. If it means ending America as we knew it...they don't care. They are completely blinded by their hatred of Donald Trump.

    "Hob-knobbing with dictators." That's what Obama did with Castro, and that's what Obama should have done with Kim when nobody was quite sure what his intentions were with his nukes.

    Trump stopped taxpayers from funding terrorism (Iranian Nuclear Deal,) so what's next? Would it be politically correct for us all to convert to Islam?

    Then you have not been paying attention.

    Start with his response to Charlotsville two years ago when a white
    nationalist killed a woman and injured others, all the while when the
    white nationalists were marching chanting hate slogans. His reponse was
    "there are good people on both sides", nothing to condemn what the white nationalists were doing.

    Continue through almost all of his campaign rallies, before and after
    election when he touted the theme of invasion from the south by Mexicans
    and other hispanics, calling them rapists and murderers.


    DS > His talk has

    Hatred is not limited to "white nationalists." Listen to any leftist
    - including several candidates for president - talking about Donald Trump.

    Yes, they are speaking out about him and his policy -- often with fervor
    and distain. But they are not inciting riots and murder.

    The shooter in El Paso
    quoted him directly as part of the justification for what was
    done there.

    There is no justification for what was done there

    Of course not, but nevertheless -- that is what he said.

    to accomplish, with three visits with his sweetheart? Nothing.
    Not a damned thing.

    Do you think the Japanese Prime Minister was happy to find missiles
    capable of hitting his country being fired by NK? Not at all.
    How much longer do you think Japan will wait before it develops
    its own nuclear weapons? How much longer do you think Vietnam
    will wait before it develops its own nuclear weapons? How much
    longer do you think South Korea will wait before it develops its
    own nuclear weapons?

    Since the USA will not protect them, they know they have to protect
    themselves. That is the way things work in the real world.

    POTUS, but Bill Deblasio says Trump is "not welcome to come back to
    NYC."

    Were I Donald Trump I'd just say "Fine" and pull every dime I have in vested in NYC and every job I created there out of it.

    I understand that feeling, but I think Trump cares too much about his
    citizens to do that. Plus, I don't think Deblasio can really kick Trump out
    of NYC, but he's trying to make Trump feel unwelcome there, which is not very presidential, in my opinion :)

    It is not because he is a white male, but the

    anyone who is not a white male is another factor.

    I've never heard him do that. But note that I only watch about
    eight
    hours of television a week and that only because I'm literally
    tied to
    the television.

    Then you have not been paying attention.

    To the television, yes. I quit watching television thirty plus years

    The only reason I watch ANY television is the fact that I have to sit

    Hello Dale,

    Is that enough for you?

    But liberals were angry & testy before he supposedly did all this >AT>stuff. They didn't like his tone of voice, and they didn't like him >AT>being white or male.

    It is not "supposedly". He did all of it and more. Much of it was done
    even while he was still campaigning.

    It is not because he is a white male, but the fact that he denigrates
    anyone who is not a white male is another factor. His talk has
    contributed to white nationalistic hate crimes. The shooter in El Paso >quoted him directly as part of the justification for what was done
    there.

    Just because some white supremacist goes off the rails does not make
    Donald Trump a white supremacist.

    Guilt by association is a logical fallacy. Even if both the shooter
    and the president are white supremacists.

    You must be a politician. OK, I'll play your game. What is your
    response to the statements made above by me in the top paragraph????

    Are you saying, or suggesting, that Donald Trump is a white supremacist?
    Maybe he is, although I seriously doubt he will ever admit it. At least
    eight Democrats who are running for president have explicitly claimed
    he is a white supremacist, so you would not be alone in saying that.

    George Wallace claimed he was never a racist. And he also claimed
    he never said the "N" word in public. But at least he apologized for
    his actions, and went on to win a fourth term as governor of Alabama.

    Do I believe Donald Trump will apologize? About anything? Has he
    ever admitted to have made a mistake? About anything? We have a
    candidate who is running for governor of Louisiana, whose entire
    campaign theme is "Donald Trump is right" - with bumper stickers
    proclaiming that fact to all the world. He has no other position.

    I wish Edwin Edwards could run for a fifth term.

    And for Mitch Landrieu to run for President.

    fact that he denigrates
    anyone who is not a white male is another factor.

    I've never heard him do that. But note that I only watch about eight >BA>hours of television a week and that only because I'm literally tied to >BA>the television.

    Then you have not been paying attention.

    Many others do. And take him quite seriously.

    Start with his response to Charlotsville two years ago when a white >nationalist killed a woman and injured others, all the while when the
    white nationalists were marching chanting hate slogans. His reponse was >"there are good people on both sides", nothing to condemn what the white >nationalists were doing.

    Are you calling Donald Trump a white supremacist? At least eight
    Democrats who are running for president are, so you would not be the
    first. Of course, Trump denies it all, claiming he is not a white
    supremacist, and says it is a disgrace for anybody to call him that.

    Continue through almost all of his campaign rallies, before and after >election when he touted the theme of invasion from the south by Mexicans
    and other hispanics, calling them rapists and murderers.

    How does that make him a white supremacist? Just because those
    rapists and murderers happen to be black or brown does not necessarily
    make him a white supremacist. I mean, I am sure he condemns the acts
    of all rapists and murderers, regardless of the color of their skin.
    Just like that white dude who killed eight Mexicans in El Paso.

    His talk has
    contributed to white nationalistic hate crimes.

    Hatred is not limited to "white nationalists." Listen to any leftist
    - including several candidates for president - talking about Donald >BA>Trump.

    Yes, they are speaking out about him and his policy -- often with fervor
    and distain. But they are not inciting riots and murder.

    No president can control the acts of others. And certainly not that
    of a single individual who is probably insane.

    The shooter in El Paso
    quoted him directly as part of the justification for what was
    done there.

    There is no justification for what was done there

    Of course not, but nevertheless -- that is what he said.

    Again, how does that make Donald Trump a white supremacist? While
    he is clearly playing to a crowd, that does not mean he is hoping any
    of them go off the rails and conduct mass shootings of black and brown
    people.

    Are you calling Donald Trump a white supremacist?

    No -- but I am saying that he is provided comfort and encouragement to
    the white nationalists and their movement.

    Continue through almost all of his campaign rallies, before and after
    election when he touted the theme of invasion from the south by Mexicans
    and other hispanics, calling them rapists and murderers.

    Just like that white dude who killed eight Mexicans in El Paso.

    Did he condemn the acts of either the Dayton or El Paso shooters? I
    might have missed it, but certainly have not heard such language coming
    from him. He did read a teleprompter speech without any affect. It was
    clear that he did not write it. Nor did it look as if he really
    believed what he was told he should say.


    No president can control the acts of others. And certainly not that
    of a single individual who is probably insane.

    Hardly any of the mass shooters would ever have been diagnosed as being
    insane.

    Again, how does that make Donald Trump a white supremacist? While
    he is clearly playing to a crowd, that does not mean he is hoping any
    of them go off the rails and conduct mass shootings of black and brown people.

    Try playing a video clip of him in a Florida rally. Paraphrasing, He
    asks "what can we do about this invasion". Someone in the crowd shouts
    "shoot them". He laughs and says "well you could probably get away with
    that in the panhandle". That certainly does not sound like he is
    discouraging the acts of one such as the El Paso shooter.

    Then there is "I could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and get away with
    it".

    Just so happens this way, African American democratic politicians use the very color of own skin to incite the element of the race card to try to make the charge of racism.

    The Democratic party is a diverse coalition, as they themselves will relentlessly tell you. But diversity doesn't mean Democrats are unified. Increasingly, it means a party defined by identity politics, and that means conflict. In the Democratic party, skin color matters above all. Some colors are good. Some are colors are bad. Your worth as a person depends on what you look like:

    Watch: https://tinyurl.com/y3423l3l

    What really is happening these democratic imbeciles go after the President without getting their facts straight, the President exploits this weakness. Then the decision must be made to attempt a counter punch or admit defeat, they often choose to counter, instead of using facts that could be used to
    validate their concerns, they respond with what has worked so many times before as they make the suggestion racism, born also from this is the notion of White Supremacy of which sucks out any remaining creditably that remains.

    The President wrote the following.
    "Today's shooting in El Paso, Texas was not only tragic, it was an act of cowardice, I know that I stand with everyone in this country to condemn
    today's hateful act. There are no reasons or excuses that will ever justify killing innocent people."

    You aren't going to get anywhere with this guy. He's blinded by the absolute rage the majority of lefties feel due to Trump winning the election.


    BTW....just taking that last `statement' of his above......putting aside the lefties' determination to tie Trump to one (if not both) of these latest shooters....the lefties ignore a few things about the el Paso shooter in their haste to `blame Trump':


    For one thing the guy's so-called `manifesto' runs all over the place. It defines no clear, direct political side; either democrat OR republican!


    He doesn't just target `hispanics' he also targets `average Americans'. He
    also calls for a `decrease in the general American population' without stating which part of the `American population' should be `decreased'.


    He called for `universal healthcare' and `universal income'; both of which are liberal socialist democrat issues! (Surprise!) But you didn't see any leftie media mention THOSE points.


    It is said that the basics of his `manifesto' are more anti-corporation and eco-extreme than pro-administration. I've also seen it pointed out that the shooter actually blames Trump for an increase in work visas! And he also rails against both democrats AND republicans for `selling out to corporations on a number of issues.


    The lefties like to hurl hateful accusations at conservatives without touching on that which puts themselves in a bad light as well.


    They would LOVE to tie Trump into one or both shooters, but it doesn't work!


    BTW...did you know he tied his `manifesto' to the environment by naming it
    (get ready) "The Inconvenient Truth"! (Shades of Al Gore!)


    There's more of a `democrat' leaning to it than republican..

    the teleprompter with absolutely no affect. Those were not the words he would have said while speaking at one of his campaign rallies.

    So you are judging him based on what you "think" he would have said?

    Im not always thrilled with what he says but I judge him on what he says and does not based on anything else.

    Hello Dale,

    continued from last message -

    Continue through almost all of his campaign rallies, before and after >>election when he touted the theme of invasion from the south by Mexicans >>and other hispanics, calling them rapists and murderers.

    How does that make him a white supremacist? Just because those
    rapists and murderers happen to be black or brown does not necessarily >LL>make him a white supremacist. I mean, I am sure he condemns the acts >LL>of all rapists and murderers, regardless of the color of their skin. >LL>Just like that white dude who killed eight Mexicans in El Paso.

    Did he condemn the acts of either the Dayton or El Paso shooters? I
    might have missed it, but certainly have not heard such language coming
    from him. He did read a teleprompter speech without any affect. It was >clear that he did not write it. Nor did it look as if he really
    believed what he was told he should say.

    He claimed they were mentally ill. Without citing any evidence
    to support or substantiate his claim.

    No president can control the acts of others. And certainly not that
    of a single individual who is probably insane.

    Hardly any of the mass shooters would ever have been diagnosed as being >insane.

    Insanity is a legal term/defense. Did the shooter know the difference
    between right and wrong at the time he committed the act? It was shown
    that John Hinckley was mentally ill when he did his thing, but in that
    case nobody was killed. I doubt the verdict would have been the same
    had any of his intended targets died.

    Again, how does that make Donald Trump a white supremacist? While
    he is clearly playing to a crowd, that does not mean he is hoping any >LL>of them go off the rails and conduct mass shootings of black and brown >LL>people.

    Try playing a video clip of him in a Florida rally. Paraphrasing, He
    asks "what can we do about this invasion". Someone in the crowd shouts >"shoot them". He laughs and says "well you could probably get away with
    that in the panhandle". That certainly does not sound like he is >discouraging the acts of one such as the El Paso shooter.

    The next day, he said he did not like it. He also said he very quick
    in his response. Which, in a way, would be honest, given it took him
    two whole days to give a response to the shootings in El Paso. I mean,
    he was busy playing golf in New Jersey at the time ...

    Then there is "I could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and get away with
    it".

    Of course he can. He is the POTUS.

    True story -

    President Nixon attended the funeral of US Senator Allen Ellender.
    Just outside the steps of the cathedral, the local justice of the peace
    walked up to him, hand extended, wanting to shake his hand. Nixon's
    face turned ashen, thinking the idiot was going to shoot him. I was
    there, along with some of my cousins, and saw the whole thing right
    before my eyes. Unfortunately, this was before we entered the digital
    age, and we did not have youtube at the time. To make a long story
    short, we all thought the headlines in the next day's newspaper would
    be "Local Cajun Dies Shaking President's Hand".

    The novel "The Man", by Irving Wallace, was written on what could
    happen in such a situation. The novel was written in 1964, before the
    25th Amendment, and was a national best-seller at the time. In 1972,
    the novel was adapted as a political drama screenplay by Rod Serling,
    directed by Joseph Sargent, and featuring James Earl Jones as President
    Douglas Dilman, the first black POTUS.

    This event (the Ellender funeral) also changed policy. The president
    and vice president very rarely are seen together at the same place, or
    next to each other at an event.

    Hello Dale,

    Start with his response to Charlotsville two years ago when a white >>nationalist killed a woman and injured others, all the while when the
    white nationalists were marching chanting hate slogans. His reponse was >>"there are good people on both sides", nothing to condemn what the white >>nationalists were doing.

    Are you calling Donald Trump a white supremacist?

    No -- but I am saying that he is provided comfort and encouragement to
    the white nationalists and their movement.

    Since we are talking about the POTUS, he should be given the benefit
    of the doubt. Even if he does not deserve it. In that sense, two
    Democratic candidates for president (Joe Biden and Kamala Harris)
    stopped short of calling Donald Trump an outright white supremacist.
    But six other contenders did not make any such pretense, calling a
    spade a spade.

    It does not matter what the left thinks, with me (and others) being on the right, We can understand instantly and clearly see the indication or

    Hello Tim,

    the lefties ignore a few things about the el Paso shooter in their haste to
    `blame Trump':

    A mass murderer has only one philosopy - to kill as many as he/she
    can. Usually within a very short period of time.

    For one thing the guy's so-called `manifesto' runs all over the place.

    To be honest, I don't really care. The crime he committed was so
    heinous, he needs to be locked up forever, with the key thrown away
    to a place that can never be found.

    It defines no clear, direct political side; either democrat OR republican!

    His `manifesto' makes it very clear that Trump is his hero.

    He deliberately targeted people whom he thought were Hispanic
    due to the color of their skin. 8 of those he killed were Mexican
    nationals. How many others who looked like Hispanics is unknown.
    And that is just those who were killed, aside from those who were
    wounded.

    Based on the words in his own `manifesto', Trump was one of his heroes.
    Trump was the main reason, if not the only reason, why he went off and
    did his thing.

    He doesn't just target `hispanics' he also targets `average Americans'.

    Please tell me why the sob drove 9 hours to target `average Americans'
    who he thought were brown and spoke Spanish. Remember, 8 of his kills
    were Mexican nationals, legally here in El Paso - the city of the
    shooter's choice.

    Would you do that? Drive almost 700 miles in order to kill as many
    Hispanics as you could at a local Wal*Mart in El Paso, Texas?

    He also calls for a `decrease in the general American population' without
    stating which part of the `American population' should be `decreased'.

    Well, granted this world will be a better place without him. But
    unlike others, I do not wish the man dead. I want to keep him locked
    up, for the rest of his natural life, and keep him well-fed and given
    the best medical care our prison system can give him. We really
    should do that for all such sick creatures who have committed such
    heinous crimes. Take them all off death row and place them on life
    row, where they know their exit out of that place will be a long
    time coming.

    He called for `universal healthcare' and `universal income'; both of which
    are liberal socialist democrat issues! (Surprise!)

    I fully agree with the concept of `universal healthcare' and
    `universal income' for prison inmates, regardless of how long
    their stay may be.

    But you didn't see any leftie media mention THOSE points.

    You are hearing it from me. :)

    It is said that the basics of his `manifesto' are more anti-corporation and
    eco-extreme than pro-administration.

    He will be free to express himself while being held at a maximum
    security prison of our choice. However, that does not mean he can
    expect his ravings and rantings to be guaranteed any air time or
    free publicity ...

    I've also seen it pointed out that the shooter actually blames Trump for an
    increase in work visas!

    He will not be needing a work visa where he is going.

    And he also rails against both democrats AND republicans for `selling out to
    corporations on a number of issues.

    Maybe we can give him a job making license plates?

    The lefties like to hurl hateful accusations at conservatives without
    touching on that which puts themselves in a bad light as well.

    I am recommending keeping the guy alive. And allow him to contribute
    to our society by doing something constructive (such as making license
    plates). That is certainly a much more noble thing to call for than
    what some others want. Just remember, revenge is not justice. None
    of the dead can ever be brought back to life.

    They would LOVE to tie Trump into one or both shooters, but it doesn't work!

    Trump has done nothing to end the violence. Nada. After the shooter
    in Las Vegas offed dozens of people, Trump issued an executive order
    doing away with gun bumps. The NRA did not like that, and called for
    his head. So Trump decided to do nothing more, allowing the same types
    of assault weapons to be sold, as if nothing had happened.

    Now Trump is talking about having expanded background checks. And
    will do exactly what he has been doing before. Nothing at all.
    Why not? Because the NRA owns him. Lock, stock, and barrel.

    BTW...did you know he tied his `manifesto' to the environment by naming it
    (get ready) "The Inconvenient Truth"! (Shades of Al Gore!)

    He deliberate targeted people who he thought were brown and spoke
    Spanish. Had he just been mad about the environment, he could have
    come to Louisiana and shot up all the marshland he wanted without
    consequence.

    Face it, Tim. The guy is a mass murderer. Just like Osama bin Laden.
    Only he doesn't speak Arabic.

    There's more of a `democrat' leaning to it than republican..

    When Clinton lied, nobody died.
    When Bush lied, thousands died.

    BET was created by PoC for anyone who cares to watch it... if you want a CEN or

    Viacom bought it for 3Million US dollars...

    Hello Tim,

    Not to mention sending huge sums of money to scumbags who make it a
    game to chant `death to America'!


    Obama's a big hit in the east!


    He ought to be. He spent enough time in his regime bowing and scraping
    before
    Islamic terrorists and their supporters. Not to mention sending them
    pallets
    full of dollars!


    Leave it to the democrats to hunt up the smelliest scumbag they could pull out
    of a toilet, and ruin the country by making it the first *half*black president.

    That ain't nothin'! Just you wait and see what we do under our
    first *half* black woman president! That California gal is gonna
    knock your socks off!

    There is strength in many things, but choosing someone based on the
    color of their skin is racist, not to mention dumb.

    I did not say that people should be chosen on the basis of their color
    or race, and on that I can agree with you.

    What I do not agree with is
    not choosing someone based on their color or race --


    See....the left carried that little pill in Shipp's sentence above to
    an extreme only possible by lefties;


    What they `REALLY' mean is; you either choose someone BECAUSE of their race (regardless of their actually being `qualified' to do what the job entails) ...OR...no matter how qualified someone ELSE is who is white....you BETTER choose the person of `color' over the white;
    otherwise you're a `racist'!

    And anything you say contrary to what THEY say or think about it is
    also racist!

    Once again, you prove that you are incapable of reading a simple
    sentence and understanding what it says.

    I think that, in practice, the difference between selecting somebody because he
    is the right race and not selecting somebody because he belongs to the wrong race is semantics only. Let me explain:

    Three candidates apply for a job position. Two are white and one is black. Hiring one of the whites because he is white is, in practice, the same as not hiring the black guy because he is black.

    I have been to human resources processes and seen this happen the other way around too. Having 10 candidates, 3 belonging to minorities, and having 1 from the minorities selected specifically because he belonged to a minority. This mandate of enforcing a race based selection automatically discarded a lot of candidates because of no sensible reason other than PR.

    Hello Richard,

    I think that, in practice, the difference between selecting somebody because
    he is the right race and not selecting somebody because he belongs to the wrong race is semantics only. Let me explain:

    There is only one race - the human race. However, that is not how
    the selection process works in the real world. One only has to look
    at the US Constitution, as the Framers of the Constitution clearly
    left out large segments of the population from being covered, such as
    blacks, women, Native Americans, poor folks, etc.

    The Framers of the Constitution were rich white men who owned
    property (including slaves), and they wanted to protect their own,
    along with those who supported them. They were not going to give
    away the store, especially to those who opposed their views.

    Three candidates apply for a job position. Two are white and one is black.
    Hiring one of the whites because he is white is, in practice, the same as
    not hiring the black guy because he is black.

    Of course. That is the way it is, and always has been.

    I have been to human resources processes and seen this happen the other way
    around too.

    In places (such as Harlem) that should be expected.

    Having 10 candidates, 3 belonging to minorities, and having 1 from the
    minorities selected specifically because he belonged to a minority.

    Bill Clinton lives in Harlem. Does he qualify?

    This mandate of enforcing a race based selection automatically discarded a
    lot of candidates because of no sensible reason other than PR.

    That would be true of any quota-based system. However, that is
    not what we have today, anywhere in the USA. In most places, the
    selection process is as the days of old. Employers hire whoever
    they want, regardless of race, even though those employees are
    more than likely the same race. No quota-based system in place,
    or forced upon the employers. It is just the way they do business.

    The business of business is business.

    No government can change that, even if it wanted to.

    How to make it fair for races of all colors to be considered as
    equals for employment? Should a quota-based system be imposed upon
    employers in order to make that happen? What would happen if such
    draconian steps were put into place?

    Let's take a town that is 80% black. The police force is 90% white.
    How to come up with a police force that is reflective of the population
    at large might seem to be a noble idea. But how to do that is not so
    simple.

    Three candidates apply for a job. Two are white and one is black.
    All are qualified for the job. Should the town hire black after
    black after black until the numbers are reflective of the population
    at large? Certainly that would be a discriminatory policy against
    white folks.

    But what if the police force population is reflective of the population
    at large? Would any policy at all be needed (quota-based or other)?
    The town would be free to hire the candidate of its choice, regardless
    of race. See how that works?

    What we need is not a quota-based system to make things right.
    What we need is employers to hire those who are under-represented
    on their workforce, while paying those who are to do nothing.

    That way, black folks will have nothing to complain about.

    There is only one race - the human race.

    [...]

    How to make it fair for races of all colors to be considered as
    equals for employment?

    Not to be very anal, but if you are trying to make a case for egalitarism basing it on the idea that there is only a single human race, you should not talk in a follow-up argument about the integration of diferent races. It sounds
    self-defeating to the cause.

    To be honest, I never go near the "there is a single human race" argument because it usually doesn't work well. It is usually paired with the implicit idea that every man should have the same rights because we are of the same race. The problem is that the whole argument breaks when you see a picture of Obama next to a picture of Trump and realize that large segments of the population share sets of characteristics that allow to get people classified into races. Just like you can classify dogs and horses by breed. You then hit the fallacy that since we are not the same race then we don't necessarily have the same rights. In my opinion, it is better for everybody to avoid that can of
    worms entirely and just declare that every functional human being has the same
    set of essential basic rights and be done with that, because we are convincing
    nobody than Obama and Trump cannot be classified in different groups.

    In any case, the human resources stuff I was talking about was no quota driven.
    And I mean, there was no quota mandating to have x% minorities hired. As far as I know it was a PR policy from the firm. There is a lot of myth that business do what is best for them, but I am sure everybody here has had their share of lame managers... firms are ran by human beings and human beings are falible. They make mistakes. Some even let politics ruin the firm. Last time I checked, some workers of this firm complaint that a lot of the new recruits were underperforming very badly because technical merits had turned into a secondary consideration for recruitment. Go figure. I think this is the sort of
    thing people gets worried about when they hear of diversity enforcement plans.

    And I will say I agree with those fears.

    I have actually been in the blunt end of a quota-based law that left me out of a job position somewhere else and it was not very fun, by the way. Just sharing
    for the sake of full disclosure :-P

    `That' was what `affirmative action' was about.


    I did not say that people should be chosen on the basis of their color
    or race, and on that I can agree with you.


    Thats *exactly* what he said; because the bottom line is....if you hire
    someone to fill a job who knows it well and is just what you're looking for... if that person isn't from some special leftist `victim' class...you're gonna get hollered at;maybe even sued!


    If you cave to the `victim' class and hire a person who's color matches the `victim' class's satisfaction but is dumb as a rock....you're stuck with a
    dumb as a rock employee who will cost money in the long run.
    What I do not agree with is


    not choosing someone based on their color or race -- nor with
    denigrating someone based on their color or race. *THAT* is what is racist.


    Whatever you do, for whatever well-meaning reason no matter how `well-meaning it is...the left will bitch about it.


    Choice and selection should be based on merit. The best Man or Women

    Translation: Hire the `right' one or else!


    There is no CEN Caucasian Entertainment Network.
    but there is a BET Black Entertainment Network.


    There is also a `Black Lives Matter'...but no `White Lives Matters'. And if
    one came into existence it would be derided as `racist'.


    There is no NAACP National Association for the Advancement of
    Caucasian People but there is a NAACP National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.


    Good point.


    Probably that is because blacks and other people of color have needed DS>such organizations to speak out for them when the white men who
    controled the power would not.


    What the left likes to pretend not to remember; and is not reminded of often enough; the KKK was mostly all *Southern democrats*.


    If either CEN or NAACP for white people existed, Van Jones would call

    Actually, white people do have their own catering organization, it is DS>called the NRA. Then there is also the KKK.


    And with that, Shipp abandons all common sense.

    Hello Richard,

    There is only one race - the human race.

    [...]

    How to make it fair for races of all colors to be considered as
    equals for employment?

    Not to be very anal, but if you are trying to make a case for egalitarism
    basing it on the idea that there is only a single human race, you should
    not talk in a follow-up argument about the integration of diferent races.
    It sounds self-defeating to the cause.

    There is only a single branch of the human race that counts, as
    there are no others still around. However, there are some folks
    who have gotten the twisted notion that different pigmentation
    of skin represents separate races of man. Of course, we all know
    this not to be true, as woman rules all of mankind regardless of
    the color of his skin.

    To be honest, I never go near the "there is a single human race" argument
    because it usually doesn't work well.

    Have you ever tried to do it with a dog? I watched a woman do that,
    and with the dog doing it to her, live on Bourbon Street in New Orleans
    on Mardi Gras. Have you ever tried to do it with a cow? I watched
    a classmate do it in the pasture while waiting for the bus, which
    he missed to his extracurricular activities. He earned the nickname
    "Moo" for his efforts.

    It is usually paired with the implicit idea that every man should have the
    same rights because we are of the same race.

    "All men are created equal." ~Thomas Jefferson

    Some more equal than others, no doubt. And then there are women.
    And children. And gays. And lesbians. And transgenders ...

    The problem is that the whole argument breaks when you see a picture of
    Obama next to a picture of Trump and realize that large segments of the population share sets of characteristics that allow to get people
    classified into races.

    Obama was a mutt, having been bred by a black brother and a white
    sister. Just think of what his yellow siblings must think.

    Just like you can classify dogs and horses by breed.

    It takes generations to breed dogs and horses to be what you
    want them to be. Only then can you classify them properly.

    You then hit the fallacy that since we are not the same race then we don't
    necessarily have the same rights.

    Because we are classified as humans, we all have the same rights.
    This was not always the case. Black folks were not considered as
    being human until after Lincoln's death, and even then were subjected
    to segregation for an additional century afterwards. Women did not
    have the right to vote until 1920, and 18-year-olds had to wait decades
    longer.

    In my opinion, it is better for everybody to avoid that can of worms
    entirely and just declare that every functional human being has the same
    set of essential basic rights and be done with that, because we are convincing nobody than Obama and Trump cannot be classified in different groups.

    "The right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" only
    existed for rich white men who owned property in Thomas Jefferson's
    day, most of them well past their teens. Should we return to the
    days of old, when only elderly white men who owned property could
    vote and decide how everybody else should live?

    In any case, the human resources stuff I was talking about was no quota
    driven. And I mean, there was no quota mandating to have x% minorities
    hired. As far as I know it was a PR policy from the firm. There is a lot of myth that business do what is best for them, but I am sure everybody here
    has had their share of lame managers... firms are ran by human beings and human beings are falible. They make mistakes. Some even let politics ruin

    lot of the new recruits were underperforming very badly because technical merits had turned into a secondary consideration for recruitment. Go
    figure. I think this is the sort of thing people gets worried about when
    they hear of diversity enforcement plans.

    Affirmative action is not quota-driven. However, opponents of
    affirmative action falsely claim it is. Why is that? Because
    those who oppose affirmative action want to keep the status quo,
    that of denying everyone their fair shake when it comes to being
    considered for employment.

    Look at it this way. The number of white police officers far
    outnumbers what is reflective of the population at large. So why
    not enact of policy of hiring more black police officers, at least
    until the numbers are reflective of the population at large?

    Rather than being racist, that is what is known as fairness.

    And I will say I agree with those fears.

    Why should white folks be scared of competition from black folks?
    You don't find black folks complaining about white folks applying
    for the job ...

    I have actually been in the blunt end of a quota-based law that left me out
    of a job position somewhere else and it was not very fun, by the way. Just sharing for the sake of full disclosure :-P

    You don't get it, man. You have to put on whiteout before you
    apply blackface. Otherwise, the makeup just won't work ...

    Probably that is because blacks and other people of color have needed
    such organizations to speak out for them when the white men who

    That's the problem with the left they mention many things that are nothing
    more then baseless accusations, facts do not matter on the left, just
    toss it out there and hope that the narrative sticks and not only sticks but creates as much chaos as it can, specially to Trump and his base.
    How spot on am I? Took very little effort,
    just like Rush -half of mind tied behind my back just to make it fare.

    It's really not your fault, people on the Right will always be vastly
    superior to anyone on the left. We don't see the hate that you see in Trump
    (or in the world), we see him as a caring and compassionate patriot who loves his country and all of it's people who live within it. Look at unemployment, it's just good for white folks, it's breaking records for minorities, even female unemployment is down to historic levels.

    The left way of thinking also goes beyond Trump too. Things like the civil war and Abraham Lincoln and his emancipation proclamation does not matter . Slavery happened and therefore America must be destroyed and people today still have a price to pay. Civil Rights also happened, but that don't matter
    because blacks were at one point considered not as equal, and now they are equal and just as free as you or I. Again that does not matter because it
    still happened and America has to be destroyed.

    All you folks wanna do is talk about how bad things are, your party as no answers, you think Americans want to fund free health care to non-Americans
    and pay for other people who are here illegally, the vast majority does not. These Presidential debates can not come fast enough, it's gonna be fun to
    watch these wannabes dems get smoked by Trump.

    It's really not your fault, people on the Right will always be vastly superior to anyone on the left.

    That is a narcissistic point of view. The people on the right are not
    superior to the people in the middle nor the people on the left. They
    all come from the same stock, albeit with differing experiences.

    We don't see the hate that you see in
    Trump (or in the world), we see him as a caring and compassionate
    patriot who loves his country and all of it's people who live within
    it.

    Learn to face that fact that Donald Trump is a failed business man who
    cares about nothing other than himself and wants for things to take him
    to center stage. He cannot hold an opinion for more than a day before
    he changes it. His views and pronouncements are dangerous.

    The left way of thinking also goes beyond Trump too. Things like the
    civil war and Abraham Lincoln and his emancipation proclamation does
    not matter . Slavery happened and therefore America must be destroyed

    I have no idea what your point is here.

    and people today still
    have a price to pay. Civil Rights also happened, but that don't matter

    Civil rights happened thanks to a Democrat President.

    because blacks were at one point considered not as equal, and now they

    Unfortunately true.

    are equal and just as free as you or I. Again that does not matter

    But they are still not as equal as you nor I.

    because it still happened and America has to be destroyed.

    We are trying to keep America from being destroyed by Trump.

    Yes people do have different experiences, this is the very moment that
    is a defining moment, because it is what happens next with the selection of choice that makes them who they are. Which path will one take when presented with a choice. Will they always go left and play follow the leader or will they stand in place for a moment and consider and weigh all the information before moving onward with their section.

    Do you blame other people for what is happening around you and take action to shape things to your own will. See what I mean?

    Curious, that you don't know of the Democrats wanting to destroy America.
    There has been several dark chapters in our history - there also has been corrections and actions to come back from those dark chapters. Democrats say this is simply not good enough and America must be destroyed and be rebuilt within the Democrats own image, with things that include green new deals
    making air traffic and airports to become relics of history, along with the

    the needs of illegals everything from housing and health care to food that
    will also be provided that is free of any cost by these people who consume them, even providing free education of their young as well as providing higher learning at colleges throughout America.

    It is something that is obtained through hard work.

    True but the Democratic Party of those days is not the same Democratic party of today, the needle is buried far left today, then it has ever has been before. Those ideals of that time have more in common with Republican views then the Democratic views of today.

    Slavery also happened and the Democrats own that also.

    Look at what his tariffs have already done to the American farmers.

    His family separation policy for immigrants who come seeking the asylum
    that USA law says they have the right to do.

    His inability to get "the best people" to work for him. The smart
    people have run from him. Many of the ones who he has selected for high
    level posts have resigned in disgrace. He does not seem to be able to
    do a proper vetting on many of his choices.

    The way that he is destroying trust in the USA by most of our best
    allies. They have no idea what to believe because of his chaotic
    nature. He has made policy statements and then reversed them in the
    span of a single day.

    His implicit support of white nationalists, refusing to condemn them for

    And now for some of the things you did not mention:
    Trump Airlines

    In October 1988, Donald Trump threw his wallet into the airline business by purchasing Eastern Air Shuttle, a service that for 27 years had run hourly flights between Boston, New York City and Washington, D.C. For roughly $365 million, Trump got a fleet of 17 Boeing 727s, landing facilities in each of
    the three cities and the right to paint his name on an airplane. Trump pushed to give the airline the Trump touch, making the previously no-muss, no-fuss shuttle service into a luxury experience. To this end, he added maple-wood veneer to the floors, chrome seat-belt latches and gold-colored bathroom fixtures. But his gamble was a bust. A lack of increased interest from customers (who favored the airline for its convenience not its fancy new
    look) combined with high pre-Gulf War fuel prices meant the shuttle never turned a profit. The high debt forced Trump to default on his loans, and ownership of the company was turned over to creditors. The Trump Shuttle ceased to exist in 1992 when it was merged into a new corporation, Shuttle Inc.

    Trump the Game

    In 1989, the Donald teamed up with Milton Bradley to release Trump: The
    Game, a Monopolyesque board game in which three to four players must buy
    and sell real estate and try to trump one another in business deals. A year later Trump admitted the game was vastly underselling the predicted 2
    million units he and the toy company had hoped for. Not one to abandon
    ideas, Trump revived the game 15 years later after his success on The Apprentice, making sure to incorporate the series catchphrase "You're
    Fired into the game. Other updated features included a sterner-looking Trump on the box cover, somewhat simpler rules and cards with business tips.

    I do not know if you understand the Trade issue even if you don't understand it, then that is fine no harm or foul, What I can't understand is why you
    think it's ok for the USA to get screwed with tariffs that are extremely lop sided, where foreign goods flow into the U.S. with a small tariff and
    American made goods have a very high tariff when being shipped into foreign lands.. You don't have to work on Wall Street to wrap your head around this one. Not when average every day Americans on Main Street understand that this is wrong and with this understanding also comes support for such an effort. This should be a nonpartisan issue.
    or
    Do you like the U.S. getting screwed because somehow you can blame this on Trump, so therefore it is worth it? I would say that would be un-American of you. I don't care how much you hate the President, but you should have a bit more respect for your country.

    The Chinese are playing dirty; they said that they would be taking more of
    the American product from American farmers and they want to and have backed out of the deal. How is that Trumps fault?

    that USA law says they have the right to do.

    <extracted from WIKI article on Trump Tower, describing undocumented
    workers and other labor disputes, which eventually cost Trump $1.375
    million.>

    Unpaid laborers
    In 1983, a class-action lawsuit was filed against the Trump Organization concerning unpaid pension and medical obligations to labor unions whose
    members helped build the towers.[62] Trump had paid $774,000 to a window-cleaning company that employed undocumented Polish immigrants
    during the renovation of an adjoining building.[63] According to the
    laborers, they were paid $4 an hour (equivalent to $10 in 2018) for
    12-hour shifts, and were not told about asbestos in the
    under-construction structure.[63]

    Trump testified in 1990 he was unaware that 200 undocumented Polish
    immigrants, some of whom lived at the site during the 1980 New York City transit strike, and worked round-the-clock shifts, were involved in the destruction of the Bonwit Teller building and the Trump Tower
    project.[64] Trump said he rarely visited the demolition site[64] and
    never noticed the laborers, who were visually distinct for their lack of
    hard hats.[65] A labor consultant and FBI informant testified that Trump
    was aware of the illegal workers' status.[64] Trump testified that he
    and an executive used the pseudonym "John Baron" in some of his business dealings,[64] although Trump said he did not do so until years after
    Trump Tower was constructed.[65] A labor lawyer testified that he was threatened over the phone with a $100 million lawsuit by a John Baron
    who supposedly worked for the Trump Organization. Donald Trump later
    told a reporter, "Lots of people use pen names. Ernest Hemingway used
    one."[65]

    After the laborers filed for a mechanic's lien over unpaid wages, they
    said a Trump Organization lawyer threatened to have the Immigration and Naturalization Service deport them.[63] A judge ruled in favor of the
    Polish laborers in 1991, saying that the organization had to pay the workers.[66] The contractor was ultimately ordered to pay the laborers $254,000.[63][67]

    The case went through several appeals by both sides as well as non-jury
    trials, and was reassigned to different judges several times.[68][69]
    The original named plaintiff, plaintiffs' attorney, and two
    co-defendants, died during the litigation, leading Judge Kevin Duffy to
    compare it unfavorably to Charles Dickens' fictional case Jarndyce and
    Jarndyce in June 1998, when he was assigned the case after the death of
    the previous presiding judge.[62] The lawsuit was ultimately settled in
    1999, with its records sealed.[65] In November 2017, U.S. District Judge Loretta A. Preska ordered the settlement documents unsealed.[63] In the settlement, Trump agreed to pay a total of $1.375 million,[63] which,
    according to the plaintiffs' lawyer, was the full amount that could have
    been recovered at trial.[63]

    And what do you have to say about all of the other failures I listed,
    and you declined to comment on? Especially Trump University

    What pronouncements are you suggesting to be considering as dangerous?
    and also tell me why...

    The tariffs that are in reality a tax on American consumers and
    businesses -- and his false statement that the Chinese government will
    be paying for them.

    I do not know if you understand the Trade issue even if you don't understand it, then that is fine no harm or foul, What I can't
    understand is why you think it's ok for the USA to get screwed with tariffs that are extremely lop sided, where foreign goods flow into the U.S. with a small tariff and American made goods have a very high
    tariff when being shipped into foreign lands.. You don't have to work
    on Wall Street to wrap your head around this one. Not when average
    every day Americans on Main Street understand that this is wrong and
    with this understanding also comes support for such an effort. This
    should be a nonpartisan issue. or

    You are pivoting and not answering what was said, namely how Trump is
    lieing when he claims that the Chinese government is paying for the
    tariffs he has imposed and not the Americans.

    Do you like the U.S. getting screwed because somehow you can blame
    this on Trump, so therefore it is worth it? I would say that would be un-American of you. I don't care how much you hate the President, but
    you should have a bit more respect for your country.

    I have a lot more respect for this country than Trump does.

    The Chinese are playing dirty; they said that they would be taking
    more of the American product from American farmers and they want to
    and have backed out
    of the deal. How is that Trumps fault?

    Because they are reacting to the tariffs he put onto the Chinese. It is
    a war, and the American farmers are collateral damage.

    come seeking the asylum
    that USA law says they have the right to do.

    Here is the thing Dale. If you or I commit a crime, guess what?
    We will be separated from our families too.

    We would never be separated for a crime that is the equivalent of
    Jaywalking, a misdemeanor. They are not attempting to hide from the
    law. They cross the border, and immediately surrender to the border
    patrol and ask for asylum -- which is their legal right under USA law.

    Correct -- show me where that has been said by any
    prominent Democrat.
    It is just not true.

    a voice of one, albeit loudly, accepted by a few others, but not by the Democratic party.

    They can't see or acknowledge how manufacturing and energy

    That is a publication produced by and for the Trump whitehouse. As

    the largest in history.

    Has something happened to the ice skating rink in NYC that Trump built?

    He did not build that -- it was built by the Wollman foundation in th 50's. Trump took over a renovation from the city in 1987, with the agreement to be reimbursed by the city for his costs.

    You should know me better then that, and you should of also known tha know all about what happened with the events the led up to Trump becoming evolved with this project. Why would I know, it's a success story.
    Yes he did take it over from many failed attempts by the city because the copper kept getting ripped off by thugs and criminals.

    In other words, when you said that Trump built it -- you were not
    telling the truth.

    and your not giving credit where credit is due, money poured into the
    rink and the copper kept getting ripped off until Trump came along
    and providing a solution and provided more then just knowledge new
    concrete was poured, this was a Trump project of which was a success
    saving the city future lost money.

    I know you like pointing out the so called failures.
    If they were failures then other companies would not be picking up where he left off, Donald Trump is more of a success then the failure your like to taught. He is also a Billionaire. Sure some of the things like the casino and other ventures did not work out. Ok so why does any of that matter? he is far better President then Clinton or Omama - combined. I can tell you of all the success that is happening and I could provide references but your not interested in any of that because it does not fit your ideology.

    I am merely responding to your false statement that "Trump built it".


    I know you like pointing out the so called failures.

    And I know that you and your rose colored glasses cannot see those

    Even that is not certain.

    Sure some of the things
    like the casino and other ventures did not work out. Ok so why does
    any of that matter?

    Because in his (and your) mind, he can do no wrong. Someone has to
    mention the emporer's cloths (or lack thereof). In addition to the
    failures mentioned, he has also left behind a number of people he has
    stiffed, welching on deals with them.

    he is far better President then Clinton or Omama - combined.

    You can believe that if you want. But how about comparing national debt
    under Clinton with that under Trump? How about how Obama pulled the USA
    out of a recession and saved the GM Automobile company? How about
    comparing what Trump has done to destroy the USA credibility with other countries.

    What they don't mention is where the money to pay for all this is to come

    They want health care for a bunch of assholes who crashed over our southern border to be free....we should educate illegals for free....we should

    Because most liberals and moderates are not as hypocritical as he is.


    There is nothing moderate about a liberal, more like delusional.


    And every time a liberal steps up to a mic in front of the cameras and says; `We are a nation of laws'!......yet the liberals refuse to enforce the law ... their hypocrisy drenches them in their lies!


    Humans do have an amazing capacity for believing what they choose / and GD>excluding that which is painful.


    Lefties are good at that.

    This asshole liberal on one of the leftie (fake) news shows was whining about the Electoral College....and he says `....if it wasn't in the Constitution

    The Democratic candidates are the one driving the conversation,

    no, they're driving *their* conversation...

    surely they are not that out of touch with what democratic voters want

    they could be...

    That's not moving the goal posts, that is how this works.

    your moving of the goal posts was to state that you knew what "every democrat" wanted... when confronted with your statement, you changed it to specify only those "running for the office of the president"... can you deny that?

    Once men turned their thinking over to machines in the hope that this would set
    them free. But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them. ... A boycott of one isn't really one so much as it is an idiotic gesture.

    I'll put to you this way, There are Democrat voters who do not remotely agree what these sycophant Democratic candidates running for the Office of the Presidency office are saying.
    These democrats will be voting for Trump.

    there you go twisting away and attempting to divert to something else to get away from your false statement...

    that may be true...

    you don't know that and it is much too early to even be thinking of such...
