    I can't trust anything said by someone that dishonest, which means I can't trust the Executive branch while he's in office. Those are words that I never thought I would ever say in my life.
    I mean, you likely shouldn't "trust" the president democrat/republican or other.
    Also the Executive Branch is SO much bigger than the President most the people in it, have no contact with the president.
    Most of them are career executive branch members irregardless of whom is in the office of the president.

        Well, trust but verify. I generally have believed that I should trust our past Presidents to do the right thing with the facts presented to them. Most of them were capable of being reasonable to within a degree of normal human decency and patriotism.

I have engaged worthy opponents like Vargas about US policy, and we respected and amused each other. These guys are dishonest, superficial, and not worthy of attention.
          Good god dude grow a dick. Look having more people post is always a plus, but if can't handle a little elbowing from time to time it screams of sissy, especially double for people who use ignore. I consider users of the ignore function to be bitchy little twat waffles.

            I am far from a Trump Supporter myself, I certainly didn't vote for him the 1st time around and won't be doing so this go around either.
            However I have seen the left demonize anything and everything he does.
            I live in a historically LGBTQ community, I have LGBTQ friends and family, and so I keep an eye on LGBTQ news and other things.
            I watched them get in an uproar of him sending a positive tweat about LGBTQ Pride month. Its like holy fuck.........come on now.

              This is bullshit. I respond to the discussion at hand, I just do it with a splash of sarcasm/troll. As far as respecting someone's posts, is that a joke?? I can as can most respect an opinion whilst still being honest(brutally) about opinion of said post. Remember this is a site of martial artist so we expect a certain level of thick skin.

                But, where the fuck was this tough on terror shit in the case of Al Bashir who was definitely in the running for guy with the most American blood on his hands when he was feeding IED's and money to Iraqi insurgents and ISIS (and their predecessors)?

                Trump doesn't get a pass for sacrificing the Kurds and making the region less safe in every other arena.

                I question his motivations in every step because I don't see him doing anything in American interests.
                I think it's an attention span issue. Trump is like the dog in UP, he sees a squirrel and boom attention at something else. He probably doesn't even remember who the Kurds are. Next week he'll attack the embassy for not having any golf courses.

                  Don't you dare compare Trump to Doug.

                  Doug is man's best friend! He is a people lover who doesn't have to pay for tail.

                    I do not have any cold hard facts but it sure feels like moral narcissism is getting worse, and that people spend even more time in echo chambers.
                    However I am likely wrong, its just likely more visible now than before.
                    Said echo chambers have always been around, from the types of newspapers people read, to the books that they read to the usegroups that they where in.
                    So People are likely just peopling as always but we get a better sense of it now.

                    Still though it certainly "feels" worse.

                      More actual News:

                      3000 more Soldiers to join the 750 troops in the region.
                      Its likely a good size to show that we can get serious fast without being so much to indicate that war is inevitable.

                        Ironicallly she's been parked outside the Gulf for half a year and just got ordered back a couple weeks ago, and won't be available if SHTF any further.
