Vet, like many, you've probably never watched any left-wing news. If you did, you would quickly recognize that Fox is far right, stations like MSNBC are far left, and the mainstream media is in the middle!

You have to remember that Fox news was created to advance right-wing views!

I watch CNN and HLN a lot, and sometimes the dreaded MSNBC. But I will always see FOX OR OAN as the David against the Goliaths ( pardon the Good vs. Evil connotations) :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

Once upon a time, there existed an emperor who loved wearing fine clothes and spent all of his people's money on them. He had a different set for each hour and was, without doubt, the finest dressed man in the land.

One day, two swindlers claiming to be weavers entered the Emporer's city and proclaimed they were capable of making the finest, lightest, most magnificent cloth the world has ever seen. So extraordinary was this cloth, it was invisible to anyone who was incompetent or stupid.

Hearing of the weaver's amazing "talent", the foolish Emporer thought he could use such cloth to weed out undesirables in his city. He paid the swindlers an enormous sum & they set out to "create" the clothes; knowing they would only need go through the motions.

The Emperor sent several advisors to guage their progress and all the advisors reported the cloth magnificent, not wanting to appear unworthy for seeing nothing at all; the cloth didn't exist!

Finally the clothes were "finished", the swindlers already having counted the gold and jewels they had received. A procession was arranged to show off the Emporer's new clothes and the entire city gathered in the center to view them. Having been "dressed" by the swinglers, who remarked how wonderful he looked, and how light the cloth appeared on him, he appeared before his people.

The people, having heard of the weaver's abilities and the cloth's fictious properties, were amazed and offered thunderous applause to the now beaming Emperor. None of them were willing to admit that they hadn't seen a thing; for if anyone did, then he was either stupid or unfit for the job he held. Never before had the emperor's clothes been such a success.

While expressing admiration at their Emporer's new "invisible" clothes, a small boy cried out... "But the Emperor has no clothes!"

-Be like the small boy and look at things the way they are...not the way you are told to see them. This man is a putz....and when he said, "I love the poorly educated"...I know he wasn't talking about me...

...and I SEE only one person so interconnected with the commies and the "axis of evil"....Donald J. Trump and his comrades in crime...

They should ALL be in prison.

"look at the way things are. not how you are told to see them" Exactly what the Right has been saying for years. learn , research and think before following the zombies of socialist immoral ideas. Amen?

DD Wiz-(...and I agree)
While I have greatly disagreed with Republican policies over the years, at least the party always stood for something. They actually had principles — Eisenhower, Reagan, even the ultra-corrupt Nixon stood for fiscal responsibility, deficit hawks, free trade, oppose tariffs, family values, states’ rights, party of Lincoln who defeated the KKKONfederate flag, STANDING FIRM AGAINST FASCISM and RUSSIAN/SOVIET AGGRESSION.

Now the Cult of Comrade TRUMPski has managed to get the Republican party to not merely abandon but enthusiastically reverse every single one of its most sacred cows.

Deficit hawks? Fiscal responsibility? Today’s TrumpubliCON party blows holes in the deficit, opposes free trade and supports tariffs.

Family values? Now the TrumpubliCONs support payoffs to porn stars and nude models and serial adultery, kidnapping babies and toddlers and putting them in cages (well, if they have brown skin).

Standing firm against Fascism, KKKONfederacy, Russian / Soviet aggression? Today’s TrumpubliCONs wave Nazi and KKKONfederate flags and hold up a former Soviet KGB top official above American intelligence, while surrendering key advantages to Russians and accept Russian complicity in meddling in the American electoral process.

But under Comrade TRUMPski, they have completely abandoned every one of their former principles, to embrace a vulgar, crude admitted woman-groper who pays hush money to porn stars and nude models to keep quiet about affairs he had while his wife was recovering from childbirth.

Gives new meaning to the term “RED states.”
________________________________________
The last Republican to balance the budget was Eisenhower. And he did it with a top marginal tax rate of 91% (top bracket out of 13 brackets) despite the costs of his massive infrastructure projects (including the interstate highway system and many others), the Korean War and the beginnings of the Vietnam debacle.

Since then, only two other presidents have balanced the budget: Lyndon Baines Johnson (FY 1969, passed in Feb 1968, despite the costs of the Vietnam War debacle, Apollo Space program and War on Poverty, while he had a 70% top marginal tax rate) and Bill Clinton, who had four straight surplus budgets after he passed Reinventing Government (REIGO) without one single Republican vote.

Only one more in the last 50 years has even reduced the annual budget deficit — Barack Obama — who slashed deficits every year after his first, with the cumulative total cut by more than two thirds off, to one third the amount he inherited from Bush Jr., though he never made it all the way to a surplus.

And now, once again, Trump is following the Bush Jr play book (Cheney: “Reagan proved deficits don’t matter”), and has blown up the deficits and debts to new stratospheric levels to allow corporate welfare and tax giveaways to the few richest elites while wages for working people remain stagnant and actually declining in real dollars due to increasing inflation.

-I did not leave the republican party...the republican party left me... :roll: VetClerk...one of these days, you will wake up and look around and actually see what the party you supported did to each one of us. Namely, lined THEIR pockets at OUR expense...laughing all the way to the bank (or tax shelters in this case). Don't you realize that every time THEY give THEMSELVES a tax break, WE are the ones that foot the bill ? THE 98% !! Not only do we pay in higher taxes... but higher inflation, lower wages and benefits and regressive policies...aimed directly at US. Latest reports confirm CEO earnings have jumped 18.5%....worker salaries have stagnated yet again. Meanwhile, we're all still waiting for the last 2 rounds of "trickle down" to even begin. I hope y'all wake up...sooner rather than later...turn off FOXNews. It is poison to your soul. The TOP ELITES don't give a poop about the rest of us...only themselves....and it's so blatantly obvious, I can't believe you don't see it.

"You have eyes...but do not see. You have ears...but do not hear..." :(

Keepitreal. some of what you say is not true and ,unfortunately some are true. I don't like Trump enough to take a half hour to break it down...but I do hate what the dems are trying to do to our country,,I would hope you could see that. It would be nice to have responsible fiscal policies again. Right now it is a choice between the lesser of two evils .

“what the dems are doing to our country”???????

I don’t know what you mean........Trump is tearing us apart with his attacks on our judiciary, his attacks on our free press, his attacks on our intel agencies, his tariffs war, his racist attacks on our fellow Americans, his immigration policy, his misogyny, his love of dictators, especially Putin, etc. Trump will go down in history as our WORST PRESIDENT EVER!!!

Holy Shitz, DDeath.

I ask you to keep the forum going while I was in Philadelphia, and you did. WindowMan and KeepitReal come back in style from an April roll-call!

My head hurtz like Hell, even though there are some well written posts here. As outspoken as Trump is, he must be snarling the Dems panties in a wet knot.

You make me sick with your bullshit. Stand there welcoming Socialism. You are why I can't stand this forum anymore.
