    I couldn't care less about the comic strip. Read the topic of this thread. I'm tired of the hypocrisy of the left, the so-called tolerant left, and its regular exaggeration and misrepresentation of the conservative point of view. They consider conservatives evil because we disagree with them. We're demonized. There's no room at the table for our point of view, yet they're shoving their violent, socialist, racist, anti-capitalist/anti-democracy crap down our throat everytime I look up. I'm talking about Alinsky-ite progressive liberals, not moderates. Coach carries that banner of hate and hypocrisy loud and proud. I'm tired of hearing it, and I'm tired of the outright hostility.

      I left the Democrat party during the Clarence Thomas hearings, after calling Bob Graham’s office to ask how he would vote. They said he was still deciding. When he voted against Thomas that was my cue to step away.

      Trump is a class A narcissist. I have no desire to defend his inaccuracies, petulance or personal behavior. But he’s a result, not the cause, of our coarsening public discourse. (The MSM horribly mistreated W, HW & Reagan - who were extraordinarily polite and good men and yet they fawned over Bill Clinton whose trail of sexual abuse and corruption is obscene.)

      I like that he’s calling BS on a number of things including PC speech police and false meta-narratives pushed by the MSM. Among the false media narratives being pushed right now is that criticizing Jim Acosta’s grandstanding equates to being anti free press.

      People speak as though there was or will be a vote to approve or disapprove Trump. Nope. The vote was him vs. the most inept and corrupt presidential candidate of the last century (or more.) The vote will be him and his agenda/performance vs. the candidate(s) and agenda the Dems put forth.

        It's really not that complicated coach, and yet it continues to pass you by.

        I think you did not get the real point. Plenty of people think that they have friends, who really are not. A real friend would have no problem with having a difference of opinion, would never call someone a racists because they don't believe in government solutions for cultural type issues, and don't accept the MSM's highly biased view of reality.

        If these folks were his friends the change would not matter, even family sometimes is not tolerant of those that disagree with them.

          She is a doozy. Lol! Maybe someone can ask her how her Southern California constituents are doing buried under the weight of illegal immigration? I would like to hear her answer. Maxine Waters has enriched herself and politics while her constituents struggled mightily just to get by. I hope to see some Walk Away videos from her former supporters soon.

          I love the walk away movement and i watch many Walk Away videos on YouTube. I'm glad people are waking up to how vile and vicious the Democratic party really is and they're unbelievably fascist and racist history. For anyone who watches the movie Death of a Nation by Dinesh D'Souza your eyes will be opened to the real history of the Democratic Party.

          And this black gay veteran walking away from the Democrats will really make them mad. :bwahaha:

            My hope, Theologator, is that people will get past his personality and vote for the program. The three main motivations for me are: (1) the corruption of the MSM; (2) the neglect of the working class of all races; and (3) the apparent corruption of our national police and national security network.
            I am pleased to see sound judicial appointments. Last election, the corruption of the Clintons was an important point.

                Let me be clear. I agree with you on almost all these points. If your friends believe your political beliefs are a prerequisite for friendship then they are like parents that withhold love to children unless said children perform a certain way. My friends and friendships go way back and endure because I take them for who they are completely. Hearing my best childhood friend use the N word while lauding (saturday) Trump was not exactly great but I know he would help anyone regardless of race. He just wants to remember his parents and grandparents as perfect when they used that language. But I digress with my personal experience. Like you, I just dont really discuss politics with those that are vehement about their convictions. Our friendships are more important. And I will agree if someone tells you to fck off because of your voting history then they probably were not your "real" friend to begin with.

                    Why do people on both sides continue to embarrass themselves by acting like fools. Have civil conversations, no name calling, do not speculate on someone's IQ, do not call for impeachment, etc. Civil conversations will get a lot more accomplished than the rhetoric coming from both sides.

                        Because many can't do that, you are on my ignore list so I must have seen some of this sort of actions from you.

                        Wow these are some angry mofos. What are they so angry about? Dont they realize that their party control all 3 branches of government and most of the statehouses? I can only imagine how these people will act when Republicans lose something.

                          Can you get the message to Trump please? His tweeting is making your suggestion impossible.

                            Do you also get highly offended by my punctuation? PS< If I am on the ignore list, how do you see my messages? I have never ignored anyone...I tried, but got a message I cannot put a certain person on ignore.
